We have reached a point where the Moon is now making its final tour of your chart for the year. It was over the weekend that the Moon wrapped up its last visit to an adventurous part of your chart and the week begins with the Moon making its last visit to your career sector for the year and before the Sun returns next week. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, letting the Moon fuel your professional instincts and imagination, but without overthinking things. It is on Tuesday that the Moon returns to its last visit to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking for the year, but also the first since Mars left. These are the kind of social and serendipitous lunar vibes that have the power to put you in the right place at the right time, especially if you're willing to trust your gut. This may also bring out your team or community spirit, with a call to once again become part of a village, whether personally or professionally.
There is something special developing on the relationship and financial fronts this week, which the adventurous lunar vibes at the start of the week work to your advantage. The Moon only left your financial sector over the weekend, wrapping a New Moon just as the Sun spends his last full week here. This allows you to start the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled, with Mercury's return on Thursday bringing the smart head for money needed to get your head back in the game. In a special week for not only relationship matters, but communication, friendship and relationship building in general, there is a lot being crammed into the final weeks of this year. This is where adventurous lunar vibes come, with a reminder on not just the relationship and financial fronts but across the board, that it is all about the journey.
Just when your professional year should be either slowing down or cruising into its final weeks, there is instead a resurgence across the income, work and career fronts. Chiron only turned direct in your career sector over the weekend, something that has released the handbrake at this time every year for the last eight years, but without creating any momentum. With Mars on board, he is not only providing momentum, but this is what he has been waiting for. With Venus and Mercury both back for rare double dip visits to your work sector and the North Node spending its first full month in your income sector in 17 years, this is not a typical end to your professional or financial year. Yet as busy as life might be, adventurous lunar vibes midweek bring a reminder that life can't be all work and no play. As the only reminder all week, there is a need to listen.
Despite the fact that the Sun is spending his last full week in your work sector and a New Moon late last week has already given work and job matters as well as anything that keeps you busy a tailwind, your gut will be telling you that this is just a taste of things to come. With much of what is evolving on the job front not really coming together until the New Year and Mars' return to your career sector on New Year's Day set to fire things up professionally, you can appreciate a need to pace yourself. However, this is not a choice, with Mars fuelling a passion for adventure and Venus back in a playful part of your chart, a balance between work and play is happening whether you choose to or not. The problem is that the very planets policing a balance between work and play will both shift to the busy side of the fence in the New Year. Some smart time management might be required.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector might get the week off to a busy start, but this is just a taste of things to come. By Tuesday the Moon will have wrapped up his last visit for the year, last before the Sun returns next week and before returning as a solar eclipse in the New Year. This makes it important to focus less on action and more on paying attention, especially with the Sun's last full week in a playful part of your chart. The Sun's departure and return to your work sector is something that happens in the days leading up to Christmas each year, but this year things will be different. Playful forces won't run their course when the Sun leaves and will still be in play this time next year. As work and job matters start flexing their muscles ahead of their surge next week, this sends a clear message that a balance between work and play will continue to be policed.
While the Moon will return to your work sector on Tuesday, this is both its last visit for the year and first since Mars left, with a chance to tie up loose ends. With the Moon yet to come full circle from a Full Moon on the career front late last month, this professional year will continue to evolve, but already it is life outside of work that has your attention. With the Sun spending his last full week in your home and family sector, Mercury returning on Thursday and Jupiter here for the next year, home and family matters are not only becoming more important, they will remain important. At the same time, the week begins with a six day alignment of communication, friendship and relationship building forces just ending, but with the different factions on all three fronts continuing to work together. This is a special week on the communication and relationship fronts.
There has been something liberating about Venus' departure from Libra last week and not just on the personal front. After four months of planetary activity in Libra, you are finally able to commit to this solar year and the journey ahead. With Venus the first to return in August and also the last to leave last week, your heart needs to continue to be the guide moving forward. This has also been liberating for your relationships and the timing couldn't be better. Uranus moves into his final four weeks in retrograde motion in your relationship sector on Monday, not just for this year, but for another eight decades. With the Sun spending his last full week in your communication sector and Mercury, the planet of communication returning on Thursday, last week's New Moon has brought both support from the communication gods and a chance to already draw a new line in the sand.
Venus and Mercury may have both returned for double dip visits to Scorpio but they have different agendas and timeframes. Having retrograded back in, Mercury turned direct late last week and on Thursday will leave, just 11 days after arriving. This is a short opportunity to get your head back in the game and around some of the choices, decisions or resolutions made during your birthday month. This is an opportunity for a rethink. Meanwhile, Venus, who returned for her own double dip visit last Monday, is here now until early January. Mercury might leave you with a revised game plan, but Venus is here to focus more on romantic and relationship matters. And here she has a smorgasbord of opportunities to choose from. At the same time that Mars is leading a romantic surge, the communication and relationship gods are working together to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
The Moon only left Sagittarius over the weekend, wrapping up a New Moon that has given you a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, while creating a tailwind. The Sun's last full week in Sagittarius means that your birthday month is coming to an end, with Mercury's return on Thursday a chance to get your head back in the game and around your options. Returning 11 days after retrograding back out, Mercury returns with a better sense of perspective. In the meantime, the week begins with the Moon in your income sector, giving you a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. This would always be an advantage, but especially as the Moon makes its last visit for the year, the last before the Sun returns next week and before coming full circle as a solar eclipse, in the New Year.
Any week that begins with the Moon in Capricorn will be a mixed blessing. On one hand, you begin the week with an intuitive edge from the get go, allowing you to trust your own sixth sense and judgement. However, this also means that you begin the week with strong emotional responses and a balance between your personal and relationship needs being policed. Yet on both fronts, the timing couldn't be better. The Moon's last visit to Capricorn before the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year next week is a valuable chance to start lining up in front of new doors before they open. Even any relationship tension this might create comes with perfect timing, with support for communication, friendship and relationship building turning this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. For this comes just as Mars is not only pushing through communication barriers, but is working to lay old ghosts to rest.
On both the financial and professional fronts, it appears that the professional and money gods have saved the best until last. For just as income matters get the green light and Mars is ready to smash some glass ceilings on the income front, support from forces on the job and career fronts is mounting. For Venus and Mercury, both making rare double dip visits to your career sector, the timing couldn't be better. While Mercury will leave on Thursday Venus, the planet of money is here for the rest of the year. The week begins with a six day triple alignment of forces across the income, work and career fronts coming to a close, but at the same time they are simply regrouping, still working as a team. Meanwhile, the Moon returns to Aquarius on Tuesday, for both its last visit for the year and first since Mars left last month. This is a valuable chance to get your personal bearings.
From the get go there is a need for some smart time management and also to make this a priority now and even more so moving into the New Year. A New Moon in your career sector late last week has been the perfect tailwind for the Sun, who is spending his last full week here. Yet with Jupiter having just completed the first month of a 13 month visit, the professional wave building now will continue to build for weeks and months to come. In the meantime, with Venus and Mercury back in an adventurous part of your chart and playful forces now locked into place, any attempts to make life all work and no play are being thwarted. This is where having lucky Jupiter in your career sector for the next 12 months works to your advantage. Had the Sun been wrapping up all planetary activity on the career front for the year, which is often the case, there would be more urgency. Instead, a balance between work and play is key to retaining your productivity and creativity.
