As Saturn and Pluto enter their second full month in retrograde motion in your career sector, they are no longer stalled but they are also no longer focused on moving things forward. As the only planets in either of your two professional houses, Saturn and Pluto are more focused on the road behind than the road ahead. And it will stay that way through to September, with new doors not opening on the job front until August. This has seen the pace dial back professionally, but this works to your advantage. For when you have powerful planets in your career sector all year, you can't stay in the fast lane all the time.
With a lunar eclipse in your career sector next month, this gives you time to spend back at the drawing board first. However, both Saturn and Pluto are supporting Venus in her final days in your income sector and until she leaves there on 9th June, there are income opportunities to exploit or that could come to you unexpectedly. Despite the fact that this is the slow point in this professional year, this doesn't mean things have gone off the boil. If there is anything that needs a push forward or find an outlet, the Moon's monthly visits to your two professional houses will help with that.
The Moon will make its monthly visit to your work sector from 9th June to 11th June and returning during Venus' final hours in your income sector, this will give her mission a boost. With Uranus staying on to keep the income momentum going, these will be some critical days of the month across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its monthly visit to your career sector from 18th June to 20th June and this could be a mixed blessing. This comes just as there could be some work/life balance tension, with some competition between your home and professional lives at the time. The Moon's emotional responses could exacerbate any work/life balance tension, yet with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled you will be better able to manage your time.
With no planetary activity on the job or career fronts, this is not an active point in your professional year and it is not supposed to be. With the Sun having left your career sector in February and not due to return to your work sector until September, this is simply not an active point in any professional year. However, what this is an active point of the year for is income potential and this is often a time when what has been invested professionally in the past, can begin to bear fruit. In your case, while the Sun left your career sector in February and Venus at the end of March, you have had two Full Moons in your work sector over recent months.
You also still have the asteroid Pallas Athena in your work sector and while not powerful enough to influence things, she is keeping the momentum going. To have had two Full Moons in your work sector, one in March and the second in April is rare and the last time this happened was 58 years ago. So there is still plenty of momentum, even if there is no longer anything new being generated. This also makes the Moon's return from 11th June to 13th June a valuable chance to check in. Especially as Venus, the planet of money will be in her early days in your income sector by then, returning on 9th June to kick off what can be the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year.
The Moon's return to your career sector from 20th June to 23rd June is also significant, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination while giving you a sense of professional direction as the Sun prepares to leave your income sector on 22nd June. With Venus still in your income sector and the Moon moving into a friendly aspect to Pallas on the job front as well, this will create some friendly and auspicious energy across the income, work and career fronts. When you have three areas of your chart all being energised by the Moon at the same time, this has a greater impact.
Despite the fact that Neptune, now the only planet in either of your two professional houses is slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn in your career sector on 22nd June, there should be a growing sense of professional confidence. While Neptune, the planet of dreams is not playing an active role in making things happen professionally, where his power lies is in his ability to fuel your professional confidence. Or at least that is the case if he is in a good place and he is able to do what he does best, which is support your professional dreams.
When we believe something is possible and we have a dream, we can do the rest ourselves and this is why the fact that Neptune is having a very good month is so significant. For Neptune, everything started to change on the same day that you moved into the final two weeks of May. It began with Mars' return to your income sector and the friendly aspect this creates to Neptune throughout June. It was a day later that Neptune began a 17 day alignment with the North Node in your income sector, something that will continue into the early days of June. It was a Full Moon on the job front two days later, that energised forces across the income, work and career fronts.
What was triggered by that Full Moon is still in motion and won't fully be revealed until everything runs its course, when the Moon returns from 13th June to 15th June. As this was the first Full Moon since lucky Jupiter left, this was a catalyst for a lot of untapped job potential, which a growing amount of planetary activity on the income front continues to access. By the time Neptune turns retrograde on 22nd June he will be at a standstill, with your professional confidence likely to be even higher as he opens the doors to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential.
Despite the fact that things have dialled back professionally since Venus left your career sector last month, this should be a good month on both the job and career fronts. Normally, with the Sun spending the first three weeks of June in a nostalgic part of your chart as he wraps up your old solar year, this can put pressure on any planets in your work sector. And with Jupiter in retrograde motion in your career sector, there is the potential for work tension and job pressure. However, Mars has already brought any time management issues to a head last month.
As this is just a case of knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, this is something you should already know by now. It helps that with Jupiter in retrograde motion and the planets now in your career sector those that are here for the long haul, there is no urgency on either front. However, there will be a resurgence midmonth and if there is going to be a clash, this is when it will be. It begins with the Moon's return to your work sector on 15th June, in the lead up to a Full Moon here on 17th June. Yet while this will see the Sun and Moon clash during the final days of your old solar year, correctly managed this shouldn't be a problem.
While you have a Full Moon in your work sector at this time every year, this is the only Full Moon while you have lucky Jupiter here and this could be a catalyst for both new job opportunities and untapped job potential. Any work tension and job pressure will be the Sun pushing back, demanding that you make time to hear yourself think. This is where you are able to use the lessons from the past, aware that it is all about knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. What is significant about the timing of this Full Moon, is that it falls just 10 days before the most lucrative months of 2019 kick off, on 27th June.
In a way, this is a month of two halves, though, in reality, this is a month that represents what the main part of this professional year is all about. Until Venus leaves your career sector on 9th June, she will not only energise things on the career front, but a friendly alliance with Saturn and Pluto in your work sector will energise things there as well. Despite the fact that Saturn and Pluto are now in their second month in retrograde motion, until Venus exploits all the professional opportunities she can, things could seem busier there than they need to be.
Venus leaves behind Uranus, who in your career sector until 2026 is in no hurry, which could see the urgency drop back on both the job and career fronts. Because work and job matters have been kept artificially energised and you have Mars in a nostalgic part of your chart all month, this is the point where you could feel over extended. Venus' aim is to leave you motivated and she definitely leaves you with a huge amount of momentum and potential across the job and career fronts, but the urgency could drop rather than slowly ease back. This could feel like you have hit the wall, especially in the middle part of the month.
There is the potential for some work tension and job pressure, but this is coming from a multi thronged attempt to slow things down. This is something even the professional gods are encouraging, for after months in the fast lane there is finally a chance to pull back. If you do find that work tension and job pressure is creeping in, especially in the middle part of the month, focus on knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. Where any tension or pressure will come from, is where you are pushing to stay just as busy, while everything else is trying to pull back.
That the solar spotlight is on your professional game at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of June in your career sector. However, every year has a different flavour and that is definitely the case this year. The bare minimum of planetary activity you can expect in any given year on the career front is for the Sun, Mercury and Venus to move through. As Venus and Mercury travel close to the Sun, if they are tightly bunched, this can create as little as a five week window. When that happens, there is an urgent need to put everything you have into everything you do, knowing you can rest later.
That is not the case this year, with Mars having just wrapped up a nearly seven week visit five days before the Sun and Mercury returned. Mars returned at the end of March and spent the whole of April and the first 17 days of May firing things up and creating an opportunity to take your professional power back. By the time the Sun and Mercury returned on 21st May, there was already a lot of momentum. At the same time, held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus is late to arrive and therefore late to leave.
Where Mars kicked things off seven weeks earlier than is normally the case Venus, who doesn't return until 9th June will stay on after the Sun leaves on 22nd June, keeping things in motion through to early July. It is not the norm to have your career sector active for so many months and as a result, you do need to be mindful of a need to pace yourself, with work/life balance a priority. Fortunately, with Mars gone the busiest phase is over, with a chance this month to capitalise on what he has set in motion. The Moon will not only move through from 2nd June to 5th June but will create a New Moon here on 3rd June. These will be important days for new professional and career opportunities and developments.
June is the month that at some point at least, you know that things are going to start moving on the career front. The Sun returns on the solstice each year and as Mercury travels with, though sometimes ahead and sometimes behind, it is not unusual to have things kick off earlier in June. Yet by the time the Sun returns on 22nd June and turns the solar spotlight onto your professional game, it will be to find that things have already been at an accelerated pace for over a month. In fact, the Moon returns during what is an important point of the month on both the job and career fronts. It was as you moved into the final two weeks of May that everything began coming together professionally, over a month before the Sun was due.
It began with Mars' return to your career sector, for the first time since 2017 and it was the timing of this has energised your whole professional year. For while an alignment between Neptune in your work sector and the North Node in your career sector has been slowly coming together since November, it finally locked into place during Mars' first full day here. It was a Full Moon on the income front two days later, that energised things across the income, work and career fronts. Mars is still here and will be until early next month, leaving just a day before a total solar eclipse.
Mars is joined by Mercury on 5th June, where he will act as the brains to Mars' brawn. Where Mars is happy for you to throw your time and energy into anything that excites you, until he leaves on 27th June, Mercury's intellectually savvy edge will make it easier to work smarter. Two things happen on 22nd June that will have a significant impact across the professional landscape. The first is Neptune's retrograde turn and the second is the Sun's return to your career sector just over an hour later. As the solar spotlight shifts onto your career and professional game, the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential.
Venus' departure from your work sector last month brought an exceptionally long active phase to a close, giving you a much needed chance to catch your breath. Your work sector is an area of your chart that is continuously active, has been for decades and will be for decades to come. However, for the most part, this is because of forces that are here for the long haul and are therefore playing a long game. Their job is to keep the momentum going after and before a more active phase, which comes along once a year. This centres on the Sun's return on the equinox in March, with March and April often the busiest months of any year.
However, a combination of Mars returning on New Year's Day for his first visit in nearly two years and Venus, held back by a retrograde phase last year not leaving until last month, that busy phase was the first four and a half months of the year. With the Sun not returning to your career sector until next month, to kick off not only the most active months of 2019 there but the only months of activity, this should give you two months to catch your breath and let things settle. Except that is not the case, with Mercury returning on 27th June and Mars returning early next month.
This makes the first 27 days of the month important for staying out of the fast lane as much as possible, for once things start to move on the career front, they will only speed up. It has been two years since you had the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in the same area of your chart at the same time, creating the kind of concentrated focus that can create some real momentum. Yet they will all meet up in your career sector over the coming months, with some busy times ahead. This makes the Moon's visit to your career sector from 7th June to 9th June a valuable chance to look ahead, getting a sense of what is coming. Likewise, its visit to your work sector from 25th June to 28th June is a chance to look back. It is while the Moon is here that Mercury will return to open new doors on the career front.
Moving into June you are also moving into a transition phase on the job front. Until she leaves your work sector on 9th June, Venus is part of a busy and active wave that began with Mars' return at the end of March. Since then, apart from Mars spending nearly seven weeks firing things up on the job front, fuelling your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit as well as creating some real momentum, the Sun and Mercury also moved through. The Sun will always spend a month in your work sector over April and May, with his departure on 21st May something that happens at this time every year. Mercury left on the same day, after a short 14 day visit that gave you a chance to get your head in the game.
However, held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus was late to arrive and is therefore late to leave and until she leaves on 9th June, she will have three main missions. The first is to fuel your job confidence and attract opportunities, while as the planet of money, her second mission is always to steer things in a lucrative direction. Fortunately, Venus' friendly alliance with Pluto and Saturn in your income sector will make that job a lot easier. Venus' third mission is definitely not the norm, for she is the last planet to interact with Uranus here until he is left on his own until the Sun, Mercury and Venus return next year.
For the first time in eight decades the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all returned to find Uranus in your work sector and here now until 2026, they found their jobs expanded. Normally they are charged with getting work and job matters up to speed for the year, whereas this is the start of a new seven year journey, with things set in motion over recent months that will set the course for years to come. Until she leaves, Venus will be working to ensure you begin this journey knowing what you want. It is during Venus' final hours that the Moon will bring things together across the income, work and career fronts.
June is often the busiest month of any year for you or at least the month when the solar spotlight will always be on your work situation and job matters. That is because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your work sector, always has and always will. However, this year this is unlikely to be the busiest month of 2019. If you were able to pick up everything evolving on the job front this month and put it in the same place in any other year and it would be the busiest month. The only reason it is not is that April and May were already the busiest months since 2017.
By normal standards, this month is the normal level of busy for this time of year, but considering the pace Mars set over the last two months, it will feel less busy. Mars only left five days before the Sun and Mercury returned last month, having spent nearly seven weeks firing things up and creating some real momentum. There is a chance that there was some work tension and job pressure, especially last month. This could be repeated this month, but that is unlikely to be the case. That is because the Sun and Mercury are more sensible and when they get a message from Jupiter to slow down, you are more likely to see reason and comply.
Mars doesn't come with any speed other than full on and when he moved into opposition with Jupiter in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart last month, he would have kept pushing. Unless you were able to override a natural tendency to push on regardless, this would have created some tension. However the Sun, here until 22nd June and Mercury, until 5th June, are more likely to see this for what it is, which is all about knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. A New Moon in your work sector on 3rd June will give work and job matters the green light, but the real opportunities might not materialise until after Venus returns on 9th June.
While the Sun's return to your work sector on 22nd June is something that happens at this time every year, a busy pace has already begun and there is likely to be a sense of excitement on the job front from the get go. By the time you move into the new month Mars has already been here for two weeks and not due to leave until early July, he will spend the whole month firing things up. Even before Mars aligns with the North Node here on 12th/13th June, the force behind next month's total solar eclipse, Mars will be aware that this year is different.
It was a Full Moon in your career sector and just as the North Node moved into an alignment with Neptune on the income front that energised things across the income, work and career fronts during Mars' early days. This was the first Full Moon since Jupiter left in November, acting as a catalyst for all the untapped professional potential since then. With the Moon not coming full circle until 13th June, what was unleashed during Mars' early days is still unfolding. There is a chance that there could be some work tension and job pressure, especially during the middle part of the month, but hopefully, Mercury's return on 5th June will help to negate that.
For as the Sun, Mercury and Venus, when she eventually returns to your work sector will also find out, Mars is facing an opposition with Saturn and Pluto, in retrograde motion in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. They will enforce a need to know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off and when you violate that, this is when there could be some tension. Fortunately, with Mercury and his intellectually savvy edge here from 5th June to 27th June, you're able to work smarter, which is what this is all about.
To begin with, it is business as usual on the professional front, something that makes June a bit of a sleeper. You begin the month with things exactly where they were this time last month, with Jupiter in retrograde motion in your career sector and no planetary activity on the job front. As Jupiter is in retrograde motion until August and the Sun doesn't return to your work sector until later next month, there is every reason to assume that this will be a slow month professionally. And to start with that is the case, though with Jupiter on board and with luck on your side, this is a good place to be.
It is mid month that things begin to reveal just what a game changing professional month this could be. It begins with the Moon's return to your career sector on 15th June, an ordinary event that could have extraordinary consequences. Ordinary, because since Jupiter's return in November, the Moon has returned every four weeks to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and offer a chance to check in. This is the Moon's second visit since Jupiter's retrograde turn, so even this is no surprise. Yet what changes everything is that this will create a Full Moon here on 17th June.
This is the only Full Moon while Jupiter is in your career sector and as he has been here for seven months by then, this could be a catalyst for everything that has been building behind the scenes. It is just 10 days later that Mercury returns to your work sector, opening the doors to a busy two months on the job front. With Mars returning early next month, that busy phase that you were expecting to kick in later next month, is being brought forward. This makes it important to make the most of the relatively quiet pace that the month begins with and also to take heed of any work/life balance reminders.
