In general, the conditions are a lot better this week, with last week not only hosting a Full Moon in Aries but a number of planetary oppositions, all with a familiar theme. That theme was balance, especially a balance between your personal and relationship needs and between money coming in and money going out. This week there is a chance to benefit from both. Until leaving your relationship sector midweek, the Sun will continue to shine on your relationships, this time with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. In the meantime, both Venus and Mercury are creating some very different conditions on the financial front, with a new sense of financial confidence emerging. With Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in an adventurous part of your chart, there is a new call this week to embrace life head on.
In a week where the Sun begins the week in your busy work sector but ends the week in your relationship sector, something that happens at this time every year, there will be no major shift from one to the other. The only difference is where the solar spotlight is directed, with a chance to highlight all your options on the job front before handing the reins over to Mars midweek. This is the point in most years when the pace drops back on the job front or with the things that keep you busy but instead, it is likely to increase and Mars takes the lead. In the meantime, as the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your relationships midweek it will be to find Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication already there. After their clashes with Uranus in Taurus last week, the Sun will also return to find that you already know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from Gemini over the weekend, you begin the week with your sixth sense sharp and your imagination engaged. This will allow you to trust your instincts throughout the weekend and in a week where there are some changes, this will be an advantage. The biggest shift is the Sun's departure from a playful part of your chart midweek and return to your busy work sector, something that happens at this time every year. In other years, at the very least this can make it harder to maintain a balance between work and play. However, while the Sun will team up with Venus and Mercury just as there is already a lot of energy being generated across the income, work and career fronts, the scales are balanced. For the Sun will leave Mars behind in a playful part of your chart and he will fight on your behalf. In the meantime, there are some positive conditions in play on the communication and relationship front this week.
The Moon is making an impact this week and as a Moon ruled sign, this will give you a window into some up and coming areas of your life. To start with, just beginning the week with the Moon in Cancer is an advantage, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go. By Tuesday the Moon will not only be in your income sector but just as Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in your work sector and when a new sense of what's possible is emerging. Not only that, it comes just as there is also a clearer sense of your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Days later the Moon will find itself in your communication sector, just as there is a growing sense of relationship confidence. This is the Moon's first visit since both planets in your relationship sector have been in direct motion and with lucky Jupiter just six weeks away, confidence in the future is rising.
The closer we get to the end of October and the final two months of the year the more you can sense the change in the air. We are now just six weeks away from Jupiter, the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system leaving a playful part of your chart and returning to your busy work sector. Already the planets on the job front are looking to the future and there is a new sense of job confidence and anticipation emerging. However, before you get there, Jupiter is working to make his final weeks in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart count and from later next week he will have Venus, the planet of love to help him out. In the meantime, the Moon will make a timely return to Leo midweek. As well as bringing a chance to check in, listen to your inner voice and your intuition, instincts and imagination, the Moon will make some important aspects. One of the most important will be a friendly aspect to Jupiter, giving you an intuitive read on what your heart is telling you.
Last week not only began with a Full Moon that put it and planets on both sides of the financial fence in opposition, but a clash between income and financial forces continued for much of last week. However, that was already easing by the time you reached the weekend and even more so by the time you move into the new week. This is important, because there is a passing of the baton on the income front this week, which could usher in a more aggressive approach. Fortunately, the Moon also left your career sector over the weekend, allowing you to start the week and also spend the Sun's final days in your income sector with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. It is the Sun's departure midweek that will see Mars take the wheel and this is when will be an even stronger call to fight for what you deserve and not just on the income front.
The final days of your birthday month are likely to be some of the best, with a complete turnaround from the conditions last week. Last week began with a Full Moon, the same Full Moon that at some point during your birthday month each year will always confront you, with its job being to play devil's advocate. This is when you are challenged to ensure you are not asleep at the wheel. This came just as there was some growing tension between your personal and relationship needs, which may have continued well into last week. However, a week on and the conditions couldn't be more different. Support from planets in your communication sector is already giving you and your relationships a voice, while adventurous lunar vibes over the weekend have brought a boost in confidence. By the time your birthday month ends midweek you should be excited about and ready to embrace the journey ahead.
The Sun's departure from a nostalgic part of your chart and return to Scorpio midweek will bring your old solar year to a close while opening the doors to your birthday month and new solar year. Yet both before and after one solar year ends and another begins the lines between the past, present and future will be and will remain blurred. With Venus and Mercury in Scorpio for several weeks now, heart and mind are already looking to the future, while Mars will remain in a nostalgic part of your chart, looking to the past for another four weeks. You even have Mercury turning retrograde in Scorpio late next week, adding to a chance to look back. Yet this means you can move into your new solar year with a sense of what you want from the get go and without the pressure to close old doors. In the meantime, there are some friendly conditions in play across the income, work and career fronts, especially midweek.
Just as you reach an important milestone this week, the Moon returns to make this even more momentous, while providing the right support at the right time. What I am talking about is the Moon's return to an adventurous part of your chart on Tuesday and position here midweek. What is auspicious about this, apart from adventurous lunar vibes always creating an exciting mix of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure, is the timing of its friendly aspect to Jupiter. This comes just as Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in Sagittarius, giving you the confidence to embrace the journey ahead. With Venus returning to Scorpio later next week and the month long wind down of your old solar year and preparation for your birthday month beginning midweek, the future is just around the corner. It is the Moon's spirit of adventure that speaks to something dear to the heart of every Sagittarian.
The week begins with the Sun in his final days in your career sector and with the solar spotlight still on your career and professional situation, matters and options. With Venus and Mercury been and gone, this is usually the point in each professional year where the planets move on, things settled back and there is enough momentum to bring things home. That won't be the case this year, with the Sun's departure leaving Mars on his own and not leaving for another four weeks, this is when things are set to take off professionally. In the meantime, while the Sun will return to your friendship sector this will highlight a network of support already taking hold for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building. This is something that can be a benefit professionally but also personally as well. In the meantime, while Saturn and Pluto are still in their early weeks in direct motion in Capricorn, there is a growing sense of confidence in the future.
It is at this time every year that the Sun will leave an adventurous part of your chart and return to your career sector and of all the solar shifts, this is one of the most dramatic. With Venus and Mercury already been and gone from an adventurous part of your chart and not only in your career sector but already teaming up with planets on the income and job fronts, this should put a serious dent on a balance between work and play. Yet while the playful lunar vibes that came to an end over the weekend were a boost for the spirit of adventure, there is no danger of this going off the boil. If anything, when the Sun leaves an adventurous part of your chart midweek and Mars is left here on his own, his passion for adventure is likely to intensify. With Mars here for another four weeks but everything becoming more energised across the income, work and career fronts, the right work/life balance is more important than ever.
The Moon is the fastest body in the heavens and because of that only stays in any one area of your chart for a few days at a time. However, this week the Moon seems to find itself in the right place at the right time throughout the week, which was not the case last week. Starting the week in a playful part of your chart, playful lunar vibes merge with adventurous forces to get the week off to an exciting start. The only problem might be a case of Mondayitis. Yet equally exciting is the Moon's visit to your work sector midweek, not only giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters but a window into developments across the income, work and career fronts. This comes just as Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in your career sector and this professional year is starting to gain some real momentum. What the Moon does highlight is the importance of having the right balance between work and play, especially if you want to have it all.
