After the week you've been through, even the professional gods need a chance to pull back. Since the New Moon four days ago the Sun, Moon and Venus have all moved on, with the forces staying behind now regrouping as the focus shifts to the journey itself. Mercury will stay on another 12 days to help you with your professional game plan and resolutions.
As the Sun and Venus spend their first weekend in your career sector, they both benefit from the Moon's departure yesterday. While the Moon left just hours before the Sun's return yesterday, having spent the previous two days with Venus you've had a chance to put your professional instincts, desires and expectations on the same page.
With Mars spending his last weekend in your work sector and the Moon making its first visit to your career sector for the year, there is a need to keep your work and professional hats on. Yet with this is a chance to read between the lines, getting a clear sense of what you're fighting for on both fronts. It won't be as intense by this time next weekend.
This is your first weekend in over three years where you're able to keep your work hat off, but also the last for another two months. Mercury's departure from your work sector last week has left you with the intellectually savvy edge needed to keep your head in the game, but until Mars returns next week there is a chance for a much needed break.
With Saturn in your work sector until December 2020 and Pluto here until 2024, keeping your work hat off this or any other weekend for the next three years is not an option. But compared to this time last week the urgency has dropped back and after a New Moon earlier in the week and a line in the sand drawn, it has now become more about the journey.
As the Sun spends his first full day in your work sector and Venus her first weekend, there is already a gap between the two. While you are just now getting the Sun's warts and all look at where things stand in order to create an authentic starting point, Venus is already fuelling new desires and expectations and a sense of what's possible.
As the Moon makes its first visit to your work sector for the year an alignment with Neptune is a chance to revisit your dreams. While the Moon and Neptune have aligned every four weeks since the planet of dreams and fantasies arrived in 2012, their first encounter for the year is a chance for a reboot.
As a 12 day alignment between Ceres and the North Node on the career front ends, there is a growing sense of anticipation across the income, work and career fronts. Something is starting to stir on the job front, Mars returns to your income sector next week and the Moon is just 10 days away from beginning a lunar eclipse on the career front.
Once things start to move on the job front, which they will do from late March, they will continue to unfold for the rest of this year and for the next eight years. Ahead is not just your normal quota of job opportunities and developments, but something game changing. Now is all about paying attention, having your antennas up and being curious.
With the first three weeks of 2018 coming to an end it is clear that there isn't the professional pressure or demands of the last two years. But as things start to move on the income front there is a huge amount of professional momentum and untapped professional potential. This is what the money gods are now steering in a lucrative direction.
As Mars spends his last weekend in your career sector there is a chance to regroup as you work to make his final days count. With lucky Jupiter here for the remainder of the year, the next six days aren't about bringing everything home or having everything sorted. Instead this is all about gaining as much traction and momentum as possible. The rest you can figure out as you go.
There is a definite sense that something is brewing across the income, work and career fronts, as though the money and professional gods are waiting for something. That is because that is exactly the case. The tide has turned on the income front and income matters are ready to go. You are now just waiting on Mars' return to your career sector next week and a lunar eclipse on the job front the following week.
