Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is a real advantage, even if it may get things off to an emotionally charged start. If this does create any work tension and job pressure it will be temporary and also a small price to pay. This is simply the watchdogs of the cosmos enforcing a need to pace yourself. However, the Moon is only here for a few days and as the first visit since Mars left three weeks earlier, this is a chance to tie up loose ends. With the week also starting with Pluto and Juno aligned in your career sector, this is a valuable chance to regroup. With the Moon able to sum up everything that has unfolded on the job front over the last four months and Pluto and Juno providing a glimpse of what lies ahead on the career front, this is a valuable chance to realign your approach to the final weeks of this professional year.
When Mars is left on his own on the work front you can assume two things for sure. The first is that this will be anything but a dull week on the job front and the second is that the pace will be near manic. After three weeks in your work sector Mars has finally got nothing but clear road in front of him and no other planets to cramp his style or speed. Yet it is the 14 months of planetary activity that gives the warrior planet of the cosmos so much to work with. To start with all you have is Mars' work passions, fighting and competitive spirit, along with a need to make things happen and get things done. Avoid the temptation to jump into the deep end too soon, with the Moon's return on Tuesday providing some valuable clues, hunches and insights. This is the first time that the Moon and Mars have met up on the work front and it will be another two years before they meet up here again.
As Neptune spends his last full week in retrograde motion in your career sector, the planet of dreams finds himself in the wrong place at the right time. Monday will see the Moon move into opposition with Neptune and on Tuesday with Chiron, both in retrograde motion in your career sector. Yet any professional pressure or work/life balance tension this might create is a short reminder of a need for balance, while very quickly turning into motivation. For the week not only starts with Venus and Jupiter aligned in your work sector, but will continue with two separate alignments between work and career forces during the week. With a New Moon in your work sector over the weekend you have reached a real turning point in this professional year, with the Moon bringing the right reminders at the right time.
By the time you move into the new week a 10 day alignment between Uranus in your career sector and Saturn in your work sector has been underway for a week, peaked over the weekend and is now in its final days. Yet even when they start to slowly pull apart from Wednesday, work and career forces will remain solidly linked. Wednesday is the same day that Saturn moves into the final five weeks of a three year journey, not just bringing this professional year home, the whole journey. Yet even with Mercury in his first full week in your work sector, with the Sun not returning until next week and Venus the week after, this professional year and journey is coming to a close in slow motion. Even Mercury is in no hurry, giving you an intellectually savvy edge but allowing you to approach things slowly and diligently.
Starting the week with Pluto and Juno aligned in your work sector brings you to an important point in your professional year. Juno returned in early February for what should have been a three month visit and should have seen her catch up with the much slower Pluto within weeks. Instead it has taken over nine months, but the timing couldn't be better. Pluto is the planet of change and revolution and Juno is the queen of commitment and it is only now that you're starting to get a sense of the major change ahead. By the time this alignment ends on Wednesday, Saturn will be just five weeks away. This is when your most powerful years on the job front ever will begin, with massive and game changing developments ahead. What you have access to at the start of the week is a sense of what kind of change lies ahead and how you can already start taking small steps in the right direction.
You may have reached a quiet week as far as any intervention from the professional gods is concerned, you have all the resources you need. With the South Node continuing to keep work and job matters on track and the Moon having visited your career sector last week, you've got plenty of resources in momentum. This week the focus is more on the money, as Mars spends his first full week on his own in your income sector. With the Moon's return to your income sector midweek, this will bring the nose for money and lucrative sense of direction needed to channel Mars' warrior spirit more effectively. It is that lucrative sense of direction that will align with the South Node's sense of direction on the job front, with a chance to align the two. With a Full Moon in your career sector early next month, there is a need to still keep some of your options open.
Despite what may appear to be a false start, you have reached a stunning week for work and job matters. Starting the week with the Moon in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart may temporarily take the wind out of your sails and an opposition with both planets in your work sector might create some work tension and job pressure. This will both shift by the time the Moon leaves on Tuesday, but the timing couldn't be better. For with Neptune in his last full week in retrograde motion in your work sector, the tide is getting ready to turn and this has been a valuable reminder of a need to work smarter. Yet what will quickly turn any tension into motivation is the support that is coming from the Sun, Venus and Jupiter on the income front. A New Moon in your income sector over the weekend will be keen to exploit new income potential with the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential.
Because the Moon only left your career sector over the weekend, you have the benefit of not only starting the week with your professional instincts sharp from the get go, but you're already starting to process valuable clues, hunches and insights. This is not just contained to where things stand on the career front and that is all because of timing. For it was over the weekend that a major alignment between Uranus on the job front and Saturn on the income front aligned. With that alignment not running its course until midweek, but support between income, work and career forces remaining strong, the Moon has left you with an intuitive read across all three fronts. With Saturn leaving your income sector next month and Uranus leaving your work sector next year, they're pushing to exploit as much potential as possible.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector will ensure your professional instincts are sharp from the get go, but this also makes it important to avoid over thinking things until at least midweek. This is not the Moon's last visit to your career sector for the year, but it is the first visit since all planetary activity for the year ran its course three weeks earlier. Mars was the last planet to leave, with the Moon's emotional and intuitive responses able to tap into any residual professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. This could create an explosive mix when they come into contact, making it important to stand back and let all your emotional and intuitive responses run their course. It is not until after the Moon leaves on Tuesday that you can even start to process the valuable clues, hunches and insights.
The gloves have come off as Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos spends his first full week on his own in your career sector and especially once the Moon returns on Tuesday. There has been continuous planetary activity on the career front since Jupiter returned last September, but it is Mars that has the honour of exploiting all the potential and bringing things home. Mars is here for another four weeks so this is just the beginning of the end, but this week is especially important, for two reasons. The first reason is that as Mars' first full week on his own, this is a chance to set the tone for the final push to bring this professional year home. The second reason is the Moon. Returning to your career sector on Tuesday, the Moon's emotional responses and Mars' passions and fighting spirit will create an explosive mix. This is the explosion that leads you into the final phase of the battle, willing to leave everything on the floor.
It is hard to imagine a better start, than starting the week with Venus and Jupiter aligned in your career sector, mainly because a better start is nigh on impossible. An alignment between Venus and Jupiter is the most magical of all alignments and this time around the timing couldn't be better. By this time around, I'm talking an alignment that happens only once every 12 years. When Venus and Jupiter last aligned here in 2006, both were in their final days and you had less than a week to take advantage of this. Fast forward 11 years and Venus is just in her first full week in your career sector and Jupiter is here for another year. In the lead up to the weekend's New Moon and a chance to commit to the journey ahead, this is a small taste of things to come and a window into what's possible.
You emerge from the weekend having had a chance to regroup, but with powerful forces still in play across the income, work and career fronts. It was over the weekend that a major alignment between Uranus on the income front and Saturn on the career front peaked, but with the good fortune of having the Moon in your work sector at the time. This is an alignment that will start moving apart on Wednesday, the same day that Saturn moves into his final five weeks in your career sector. Armed with the Moon's intuitive edge from the get go, this allows you to start the week with some real insight across the income, work and career fronts. This is the point where you're not just bringing this professional year home, but the journey that the last three years have taken you on. Things will really start coming together when the Sun returns next week and Venus a week later.
