With just over six weeks of 2017 to go, things are starting to become more compressed, we have less time and it is likely to feel like a lot of things are coming together. However, this has less to do with how close we are to the end of the year and more to do with the fact that we are approaching a major period of cosmic transition. We are just entering the biggest period of cosmic change in several years and this is exciting. However, don't get caught up in the drama of it all and refuse to sweat the small stuff.
As Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos moves into his final three weeks on the job front he has just one speed on his dial and that is 'manic'. Whether at work or with all the different things in life that keep you busy, Mars would be just as happy if you worked yourself into the ground or spent the next 21 days chasing your tail. It doesn't matter to Mars, as long as you're busy. But it obvious matters to you, with a need to work smarter and pace yourself.
There are two very different forces in play today, with some strong cosmic personalities wanting to press home their agenda. A New Moon in your work sector comes with some massive support, with the professional gods pressing you to keep your work and professional hats on over the weekend. Yet as Mars moves into his final three weeks in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart he's determined to ensure you don't. Find a way to keep both sides happy.
As much as playful and romantically charged New Moon is going to dominate the weekend and this has some powerful clout, this is also a good time to get stuck in and get things done around the home. As Mars moves into his final three weeks in your home and family sector, he is giving you the energy and drive to get up go, making things happen and getting things done. If you're planning on catching up over the holidays you may find that you've lost your motivation by then.
There will be two New Moons in your home and family sector while Jupiter is here. One is happening now and the other will fall during the planet of luck and expansion's last full day, next November. With a lot of water set to pass under the bridge between these two New Moons, this is a chance to commit to the journey ahead. Luck is on your side, at a time when the solar spotlight is on home and family matters and your heart and emotional responses are also engaged.
As Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos moves into his final three week in your income sector it is important that you look beyond the money. You're not going to fight for the things you deserve on the income front if you're not also fighting for what you deserve across all the currencies in your life. Most of those battles will take place within, from giving yourself permission to take the last piece of cake on the plate to standing up for your rights on the big things.
Over the course of the year and the last few months in particular, there has been a massive amount of planetary activity in Libra. At times too much, for this has not only put pressure on you, but on your relationships as well. Yet over the last six weeks one by one Jupiter, the Sun, Mercury and just last week Venus all left. The lone survivor is Mars and as he moves into his final three weeks in Libra, he is determined to see you fight for the things you're passionate about.
A New Moon will always fall at some point during your birthday month, giving you a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. Yet what happens when you're not just moving into a new solar year, but with Jupiter in Scorpio as well, a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. The answer is that you take this one step at a time, committing to the journey and not the details. With Mars still three weeks away, you haven't even started to look at what really excites you.
At some point during the month long wind down of your old solar year, a New Moon brings you to a line in the sand. This is a month that has a dual purpose, that of bringing one solar year to a close and preparing for the next. Because a New Moon is all about new beginnings, this is the point where the focus shifts to lining up in front of new doors before they open. With your birthday month and new solar year just four days away, all of a sudden there is a new sense of anticipation in the air.
It is not just the New Moon that is creating a socially charged and serendipitous weekend, but the sheer number of planets involved. Yet at same time there will also be a need for time out in order to hear yourself think, while Mars is also creating a new sense of urgency on the professional front. In short, you might be juggling many balls, not just today but over the weekend itself. Take things one step at a time, learning how to prioritise.
You have a bit of a problem today, but it's the kind that the rest of us would gladly take off your hands if we could. That problem is that you have some stunning support building around what is the most auspicious New Moon on the career front in over a decade. In the early weeks of a massive year for professional growth, this is a chance to draw a real line in the sand. The problem is that Mars is fuelling a passion for adventure. It is all about knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
While you will have a New Moon in an adventurous part of your chart at this time every year, the reality is that it falls just weeks or in some cases days before the Sun's return to your career sector. This year the Sun is just four days away and that creates the threat that there will be a spike in adventurous forces, a chance to commit to new journeys but then life gets busy and this is forgotten. This year, with lucky Jupiter here until November 2018 this won't be the case.
