Having the Moon in your career sector as Pluto turns retrograde here today is a huge advantage. Professionally or with anything that you are applying your competitive focus to, this will ensure your instincts are sharp and you have a feel for the undercurrents, as the brakes are applied. With Saturn turning retrograde here next week as well, the professional tides are turning and it is now all about making sure you remain in synch. With Pluto turning retrograde but Saturn still in direct motion, trust your gut when it comes to knowing when to pull back and when to push on.
The Moon returns to an adventurous part of your chart every four weeks, with adventurous lunar vibes fuelling your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses, triggering a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure before moving on. Yet having the Moon here as Pluto turns retrograde in this adventurous part of your chart today, will allow you to pick up on a new sense of nostalgia. This is the day that the doors open to the past, second chances and an opportunity for a do over.
Having the Moon in your financial sector as Pluto turns retrograde here today is a huge advantage. With your financial instincts and imagination fuelled, you'll find it easier to read the undercurrents, sensing when to pull back and when to push on. For while Pluto turns retrograde here today, with Saturn still in direct motion at least some financial focus will still need to be on the road ahead. This allows you to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the dynamics of this financial year begin to shift. As money matters move into review mode, new income matters are ready to move forward.
Having the Moon in your relationship sector as Pluto turns retrograde here today, might see strong emotional responses all of a sudden bring up the past in a way you hadn't seen coming. Yet with the Sun of his first full week in your friendship sector, this allows you to seize the opportunity this creates to revisit the past. This time with support for friendship and relationship building. With Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in her early days in Cancer, you will find it easier to see things from both your own and your relationships' perspective.
The dynamics of this professional year are shifting and with that comes a need to be more mindful of when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. With the Moon in your work sector as Pluto turns retrograde here today, you will be more aware of where you are being pulled back, sensing where the brakes are coming on. Yet with the support of the Sun, in his first full week in your career sector, this is not at the expense of a sense of a sense of professional direction moving forward. This is the point where it becomes more about working smarter, knowing when to pull back and when to push on.
While the work/life balance reminders or tension earlier in the week has dialled back, the lessons learned are only now proving their worth. For as Mars continues to push things forward professionally, a strong mix of playful, adventurous and nostalgic forces is making it clear that life can't be all work and no play. There is something about a mix of playful, adventurous and nostalgic energy today that is timeless, in that there is no urgency. What you have today is just a taste of something that is here to stay.
As much as work/life balance has become even more of an issue this week, it is something that neither side wants or needs to fight. This is coming from a standoff between forces on the home and professional fronts, yet neither side is pushing an urgent agenda. If anything, it serves their purpose, with both sides benefiting from the right balance. Too little time out and you lose your professional edge, too much time out and you may lose your advantage. The message from the domestic and professional gods is that the right work/life balance works for them.
To have the Moon move through your communication sector during the Sun's first full week in your relationship sector was always going to be an advantage. Even more so as the communication gods begin the process of opening the doors to the past and second chances. With Pluto turning retrograde in your communication sector today and Saturn next week, the Moon is on hand to take advantage of this. All of a sudden there is a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
Mars reaches the exact halfway point of his nearly seven week visit to your relationship sector today and he is ready to come out fighting. Pressure from the Moon earlier in the week as it moved through Sagittarius has exacerbated any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs, while flushing out any other issues. This is the point when whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, it is time to start fighting for what you want and need from your relationships. Recent days have helped to expose what you do want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Since Pluto's return to Capricorn in 2008 he has spent from April to September in retrograde motion, with his retrograde turn today part of what has become the pattern of each year. With Saturn turning retrograde here next week, this is the point in the year when the brakes go on and there is a chance to pull back. Having the Moon in Capricorn today and your instincts and imagination engaged will help you remain connected to the undercurrents, as the tide turns. This is a day for having your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, without overthinking things.
Just having the Moon in a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart was going to call for time out to hear yourself think. Having the Moon here as Pluto turns retrograde here and as Saturn slows to a crawl ahead of his retrograde turn here next week, increases a need for silence, at the very least at some point during the day. What you might see as a mind too easily distracted is more a case of life getting in the way of trains of thought you would do well to follow.
The Moon's departure from your career sector yesterday was always going to leave you with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled and valuable clues, hunches and insights to process. Yet as the Moon's first visit since both planets here turned retrograde, the 20/20 hindsight this gave you access to was just one additional advantage. With Venus and Mercury both in their first full week in your income sector and with the fallout from last week's Full Moon already turning into motivation, a friendly boost from the Moon had added more fuel to that.
