There is a lot happening this week, making it important to have your eyes on the ball. The Sun's departure from Aries last Friday may have brought your birthday month to a close, but with Mercury here for another three weeks you've still got time to work on your game plan and resolutions. With Uranus moving into his final three weeks in Aries on Wednesday, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is still bound to have some wildcards up his sleeve.This makes it important to keep your head in the game, but your mind and your options open. In the meantime, the Sun is spending his first full week in your income sector and the timing couldn't be better. With Venus leaving on Wednesday this will keep the momentum going. Yet this comes just as Mars and Pluto align in your career sector, firing up your professional year and your options.
The Sun's return to Taurus last Friday brings you to the first full week of your birthday month and if first impressions are anything to go by, this is going to be an exciting year. With Venus in Taurus until Wednesday, there is a need to start the week listening to your heart. The Sun is here for a month, giving you plenty of time to get real and become more objective. Venus' return on Wednesday will leave the Sun on his own, allowing you to get on with the job of embracing your birthday month and new solar year. This frees Venus to turn her focus onto your income situation and matters, with her return to your income sector on Wednesday a game changer. For the first time in three years Saturn isn't in opposition and there is no competition from money matters as a whole. With Mars just three weeks away from your career sector by then, there is a lot to look forward to on the income and professional fronts.
The Sun's return to your sector of subconscious thinking, imagination and review last Friday may have brought you to the first full week of the month long wind down of your old solar year, but you get to open some new doors this week. Venus' return to Gemini on Wednesday is so far ahead of the Sun's return later next month that she'll have a chance to move through and leave before your birthday month and new solar year even begins. Returning to find none of the challenges of the past, but some special support from fun, playful, romantic and creative forces, Venus will not only open new doors, but some fun new doors. This allows your heart to get in first and without any need to keep it real, have your shopping list spelled out before your birthday month and new solar year even begins.
Starting the week with the Moon in Cancer will ensure your instincts are sharp and your imagination is fuelled from the get go. While the Moon might leave in the early hours of the week this works in your favour, giving you all the advantages of having the Moon on board, but none of the disadvantages. As Pluto turns retrograde in your relationship sector on Monday and heads back into alignment with Mars here in the second half of the week, this is a chance to ensure you're aware of your own needs. In the meantime, while the Sun and Venus start the week on the same page, they diverge midweek. The Sun's first full week in your friendship sector comes just as Venus has moved into her final days. This not only creates a socially and team focused week, but a week that has a lot of support for friendship and relationship building. Yet Venus' return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Wednesday will bring a desire for time out.
There are some stunning developments across the income, work and career fronts this week, which will all come together midweek. Yet the planet that leads you into the week will bow out just as this is happening. That planet is Venus, who begins the week in her final days in your career sector, just as the Sun is spending his first full week. Venus' job before leaving is to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. What makes Venus' job a lot easier is that Mars and Pluto are drawing into an alignment in your work sector, just as the Moon returns to your income sector midweek. Yet as things continue to unfold and come together across the income, work and career fronts, Venus will return to your friendship sector and the most social and serendipitous part of your chart on Wednesday. Having created some real professional momentum, Venus will now make sure life doesn't become all work and no play.
This is a week that shouldn't work. On one hand you have new professional developments opening up and a real sense of excitement and anticipation on the job and career fronts. There is even some exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts later in the week. Yet at the same time there is even more fuel being added to an already potent mix of playful and adventurous forces. You begin the week with the Sun and Venus in an adventurous part of your chart and Mars and Pluto, the planets of war and revolution moving towards an alignment in a playful and romantically charged part of your chart. It is Venus' return to your career sector on Wednesday and the Moon's to your income sector on Friday that will provide the first sense of what is developing across the income, work and career fronts. Yet while a balance between work and play would appear to be a problem it's unlikely to be, especially with the right boundaries.
First impressions not only suggest more of the same this week, but a fairly unexciting line up. You have a lot of focus on home, family and/or property matters and even more focus on money matters, after the Sun's return to your financial sector last Friday. Fortunately the two are on good terms, creating a good week for financial matters on the home, family and/or property fronts. Yet this isn't exciting and chances are that's what you're hanging out for. It is not surprising then that the planet who will answer your call is Venus, your ruling planet. It is Venus' return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on Wednesday that opens the doors to the most adventurous months of 2018, four weeks before they usually open. Venus is giving you a chance to get in first and have some fun. Life will feel more exciting from Wednesday.
You have a lot on the go this week, making it important to make work/life balance a priority from the get go. On one hand you have a stunning week for communication and relationship matters and also an important week for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Yet the Moon also returns to your career sector on Monday, just as you reach a critical point of the year on the job front. The Moon returns every four weeks to fuel your professional instincts and imagination, but the Moon's return on Monday and departure on Wednesday couldn't come with better timing. For it is on Monday that Mercury moves into his final three weeks in your work sector and on Wednesday that Uranus will move into his final three weeks. It comes down to starting the week with the right intentions, committed to a work/life balance and a balance between work and play that allows you to have it all.
There is a special surprise this week, but it comes right in the heart of some stunning developments on the income, work and career fronts. The week begins with Venus in her final days in your career sector, the Sun in his first full week and Mars and Pluto moving towards a game changing alignment in your income sector from Thursday. The Moon's return to your career sector on Wednesday will ensure your professional instincts are sharp, while creating some stunning days across the income, work and career fronts. However, Wednesday is the day that Venus delivers her surprise, which is her return to your relationship sector. The surprise is both her early return and what she finds, which is that the challenges of the past are missing and instead there is support from the communication gods from the get go. With something special on the fun, playful, romantic and creative front as well, there must be a balance between work and play.
While you have reached an important week for both job and career matters, there is a clear message from the get go that life is not about to become all work and no play. Yet this is something that even the professional gods are aware of. What is set to fire up your professional year is Venus' return to your work sector on Wednesday, followed by not only the Moon's return to your career sector on Friday, but having come full circle from last month's Full Moon. This is the first planetary activity in either of your professional houses this year and is the jump start that your professional year needs. Yet Venus will start the week with the Sun in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, while the Moon will return to an adventurous part of your chart on Wednesday. The Moon and Venus, the ones that will jump start your professional year, are first pushing home a need for a balance between work and play.
We have reached a point in the year where there is a lot of things evolving and changing, but at the same time when nothing is ending. What we do have this week, however, is the introduction of something brand new. This is what I mean by things changing, but nothing ending. Last Friday the Sun left your communication sector, but Mercury and Uranus are staying behind to keep the communication lines open and will be working hard. At the same time, while Venus might leave your home and family sector on Wednesday, the Sun is spending his first full week here and will continue to keep the solar spotlight on home and family matters for another four weeks. Even then, there are more domestic gods on the way. However, there is an area of new light this week that comes from Venus' return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Wednesday. This is the first planetary activity here since mid 2017 and Venus is the perfect planet to kick things off.
The Moon is playing an important role this week, moving through the most important areas of your chart, at the perfect time. It starts with the Moon's return to your work sector on Monday, the same day that Mercury moves into his final three weeks in your income sector. This comes just as income and job forces are coming together to create an auspicious week on both fronts. Yet the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Wednesday is just as timely. This comes just as Venus is leaving your communication sector and the Sun, in his first full week here is taking the wheel. As the Moon fuels your emotional responses, you're able to give them and your relationships a voice. On Friday the Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your financial sector, with a chance to take a closer look at both income and money matters and especially when it comes to a balance between the two. You even have adventurous lunar vibes kicking in on Sunday.
