This week takes a more quite path professionally and just as well. Last week saw the aftermath of a Full Moon in your career sector play into the early days of last week. Now, with the Moon long since moved on and professional pressure or work/life balance tension dropped back, there is a chance to let things settle. It can take the impact from a Full Moon up to four weeks to run its course, with no need to rush that process. At the same time, with Mercury returning to your work sector next week, a new chapter on the work and job fronts is about to open up. This week in between last week's career developments and next week's work and job developments, is a much needed buffer zone. Even the Moon will stay clear of both professional houses, letting things settle. The early part of the week however does bring a chance to tie up loose ends on the income front.
The more time that passes from the Moon's visit to your career sector last week, the harder it will be to shake a sense that something fateful is developing. It's as though the cover has been blown and previously unexposed potential has not been exposed. This will still have you guessing and will do until next month's lunar eclipse. However, continue to trust your professional instincts and continue to follow your gut. This will serve you well in what should be a stunning week for income and job matters. It is on Wednesday that an alignment between Venus in your income sector and Jupiter in your work sector peaks. Coincidently this is the same day the Moon returns to your income sector. With something still bubbling away on the career front, a nose for money will take in what's happening across the income, work and career fronts.
The Moon only left career sector over the weekend, allowing you to start the week with your professional instincts sharp from the get go. Yet that doesn't explain a sense of confidence or the determination to fight for what you want across the income and career fronts. What does explain this is an alignment between Mars in your income sector and Chiron in your income sector from Monday to Wednesday. No sooner is that over, than the Sun will move into the same alignment on Friday and Saturday. As every cosmic alignment is in effect days either side, support floods the whole week. If there was going to be a week where you would want to have sharp professional instincts from the get go, this is it. Especially with Mars leaving your income sector on Friday and the Sun over the weekend.
Any doubt about the connection between income, work and career forces will be erased this week. You not only begin the week with the Moon in your career sector, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp from the get go, an alignment between Mercury in your income sector and Saturn in your work sector will bring everything together. This is just scratching the surface, coming face to face with the implications by the end of the week. The Moon might leave your career sector on Monday, but with Eris turning retrograde here on Wednesday, this will ensure your professional instincts are sharp, as the tide gets ready to turn. This is just a day before an alignment between Mercury and Saturn will bring the new doors opening on the income front together with the doors already open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. Something game changing is developing across all three fronts.
The professional gods have an agenda this week and it is to tie up loose ends. When you moved into last week a Full Moon in your work sector had just run its course, but work tension and job pressure extended into the early part of the week. That tension, caused by pressure from the Sun and Mars has dropped back. With a Full Moon often taking as long as four weeks to run its course, work tension and job pressure is replaced by a chance to pull back. It is the Moon's return to your career sector on Monday that will bring a chance to tie up loose ends on the career front. Returning 12 days after Venus brought five months of planetary activity to an end, this will bring all the different strands together. The Moon returns every four weeks and was a silent witness to all the water that passed under the bridge over the last five months. Your professional instincts will hold all the information and insight you need.
Every one of the 27 days that Venus will spend in your career sector this year are significant, but they are also the days when everything is likely to come together. This 27 day period will have been underway for 13 days by the time Venus moves into her final 14 days, with Wednesday the dead centre. This is significant and also more than symbolic. For this is the day that the Moon will return, but also the day that income and career matters peak. Venus returns to your career sector every year and this year she is the last planet to move through, so is here to bring everything together. Yet for the first time in 12 years and for the last time for another 12 years, Venus has returned to find Jupiter in your income sector. It is the alignment on Wednesday, dead centre of Venus' 27 day visit and as the Moon returns that brings this to its most potent point.
Even before the week begins it is obvious that this is going to be a good week on both the job and career fronts. Even if at this point it is just a sense of confidence. For while job and career forces cross paths this week on both fronts, influences will remain in play for months. What you have this week is the Sun and Mars making the most of their final days in your career sector. The last few weeks have seen both align with Neptune in your work sector and this week they will both align with Chiron. This is a different experience, for with Neptune it was a chance to revisit old dreams. Chiron is the planet of healing and he knows where all those hidden roadblocks and landmines are. The ones you step on just as you're able to succeed, but that inner voice sabotages you. Mars' alignment peaks from Monday to Wednesday and the Sun's on Friday and Saturday. Yet while Mars will leave on Friday and the Sun over the weekend, there is already backup and more on the way.
While you will start the week with the Moon in your work sector, it will leave on Monday, giving you the best of both worlds. That means you'll benefit from an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go, but with the Moon leaving on Monday strong emotional responses won't linger. It also means that any work tension and job pressure it may have caused will have happened over the weekend. The timing of this intuitive edge is priceless. For it's on Wednesday that the doors will open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. It is just two days later that Mars' return to your career sector won't just open the doors to new career opportunities, he'll kick those doors off their hinges. The Sun and Moon's return will create a New Moon on Sunday. As the first of two New Moons, the second a total solar eclipse next Monday, will see new opportunities open up in stages.
The timing of the Moon's return to your work sector on Monday couldn't be better and not just because this will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the early part of the week. This is more because the Moon is managing to fit in this important visit before Mercury returns to your career sector next week. It is Mercury's return next week that will not only kick off a three month period of career growth, but also end a 21 day hiatus. That three week hiatus began with Venus' departure from your work sector earlier in the month, giving you a break from the end of one busy five month period, before the next chapter begins. The Moon's return on Monday comes 12 days after Venus left and with this is a chance to begin the process of tying up loose ends. By the time the Moon leaves on Wednesday, Mercury will still be a week away from your career sector. This will give you time to process all the Moon's valuable clues, hunches and insights that this will leave you with.
Don't be tricked by the playful part of your chart at the start of the week, for this is a serious and stunning professional week. However, this is a timely reminder that life can't be all work and no play, especially with no one around to police this anymore. The Moon will leave on Wednesday and return to your work sector and that's when things get serious. For Wednesday is not only the exact halfway point in Venus' short 27 day visit to your work sector, but is the day that an alignment between work and career forces peaks. Venus returns to your work sector each year and this year, as the last planet to move through she is charged with bringing everything together. However it has been 12 years since Venus last returned to find lucky Jupiter in your career sector and it is their alignment that peaks on Wednesday. To have the Moon return to your work sector on the same day will ensure you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground.
With both the Sun and Mars gone from your work sector by the end of the week, there is a need to have your work hat on from the get go. However, unlike last week, which began with work tension and job pressure running high, there should be nothing but confidence this week. This is in part because of the Sun and Mars' alignment with Chiron in your income sector, but more that you can sense that the roadblocks really are behind you. The Moon will return to your work sector on Friday, just hours after Mars leaves. However, with the Sun not leaving until Sunday this will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters as the Sun absorbs all the passion, drive and warrior spirit that Mars leaves you with. With Ceres staying on and Venus yet to arrive, work and job matters will continue to evolve for several more months.
Don't be deceived by the slow start to the week, for by the end of the week some very powerful and busy forces will be unleashed on the job front. This also makes the nose for money and lucrative sense of direction you start the week with even more important than they already are. The doors are already open to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential, but on Wednesday they will open to untapped income potential as well. However, the real benefit is the nose for money and lucrative sense of direction this will leave you with as things start to move on the job front. Mercury is already in your work sector, so you already have your head in the game. But Mars' return on Friday, the Sun and Moon's return on Sunday and the New Moon this creates won't just open new doors on the job front, it will blow them off their hinges.
