When the week begins with the first Full Moon of the year underway this is going to grab your attention from the start. Monday's Full Moon is not just the first Full Moon of 2022 but the first in your home and family sector since 2020. With no planetary activity on the home front, this is the boost that home and family matters have been waiting for but also a chance to demand your attention. This is a Full Moon that will always put pressure on the Sun in your career sector and as a result, this can create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension. However, while the Sun will leave your career sector on Thursday, with Venus turning direct and Mars returning next week, it is next week when this new professional year will really take off. This brings the right work/life balance reminders at the right time, with the Moon continuing that theme as it goes on to spend the middle of the working week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart.
Monday's Full Moon, the first of 2022 and the first in your communication sector since 2020 is going to get your attention from the start. However, its real importance might not be appreciated until after it is gone, making it important to put everything you have into working with the Moon to ensure the communication lines are open and especially on the relationship front. Even if this hadn't been a Full Moon, the Moon's first visit to your communication sector for the year was going to be important but both the timing and its ability to push through communication barriers make this a lot more significant. The Moon will leave on Tuesday, just 12 hours before the North Node will return to Taurus and its partner the South Node will return to your relationship sector. For the next 18 months, the lunar nodes will police a balance between your personal and relationship needs, with the Moon offering a chance to ensure the communication lines are open from the start.
While it is Monday's Full Moon that will have a lot more power and momentum behind it, the Moon will make a habit of finding itself in the right place at the right time this week. Falling in your income sector, Monday's Full Moon might create some financial tension as it clashes with the Sun in your financial sector but this can also energise both sides of the financial fence. What makes the timing of this Full Moon auspicious is that it not only falls at a friendly aspect to Jupiter and Neptune in your career sector but just days before the South Node's return to your work sector. By the time the Moon leaves your income sector on Tuesday, the South Node will be less than 12 hours away and by midweek there will be a vortex of new energy in play across the income, work and career fronts. By then the Moon will have moved on and will not only return to your communication sector on Tuesday but just as Mars moves into his final seven days in your relationship sector.
Just starting the week with the Moon in Cancer is an advantage, giving you an intuitive edge but also personal awareness from the start. This first visit for the year was always going to be an important chance to check in but even more so as the first Full Moon in Cancer since 2020. There was no Full Moon in your sign last year and halfway between your last birthday month and the next, this is a long overdue chance to take your power back and for a reset. This will see the Moon clash with the Sun in your relationship sector but at the same time that this might expose any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs it also makes those needs more transparent. The Moon will leave on Tuesday but a sense of empowerment will remain. It is then that the Moon will contribute a stunning coming together of income, work and career matters midweek.
Monday's Full Moon is pushing the pause button and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon is not only making its first visit to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart for the year but as a Full Moon is actively stepping out in front of the Sun in your busy work sector. Either at work or with whatever it is that keeps you busy, this will put how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test. With the Moon leaving on Tuesday, the tide turning on the career front on Wednesday and the busiest weeks of 2022 kicking off next week, this is the right reminder at the right time. Meanwhile, it is on Tuesday that the Moon will return for its first visit to Leo for the year. As well as a chance to check in and get your personal bearings, the Moon will interact with planets on the playful and adventurous fronts as it moves through. This will bring a reminder that life can't be all work and no play.
Any week that starts with a Full Moon on Monday will see the Moon get your attention from the start, putting a lot more weight on what is normally a fleeting monthly event. The first Full Moon of 2022 not only falls in your friendship sector but at a friendly aspect to planets in your relationship sector and just two days before the South Node's return to your communication sector. This sets the scene for an important week across the communication, friendship and relationship fronts but is also something that will continue long after the Moon leaves. It is later in the week that the Moon will return for its first visit to Virgo for the year on Friday. As well as a chance to check in and get your personal bearings, this will see the Moon clash with the same planets that it formed a friendly aspect to in your relationship sector at the start of the week. However, with the South Node in your communication sector by then, with plenty of communication support.
While you began the year with Jupiter and Neptune in your work sector and over the coming months this sets the scene for job growth and potential, it is this week that this new professional year really gets a boost. This is thanks to not only starting the week with the Moon in your career sector but as the first Full Moon of 2022. There was no Full Moon in your career sector last year, with Monday's Full Moon also the first here in over a decade while Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion is in your work sector. This gets the week off to an energised start across the job and career fronts and while the Moon will leave on Tuesday, this will have ongoing implications. This will also create a lot of professional momentum just before the South Node returns to your income sector on Wednesday to spend the next 18 months exploring untapped income potential. The North Node's return to your financial sector on the same day will focus on moving money matters forward.
In a week where there is a bit of everything, the right work/life balance is something that that needs to be a priority from the start. Monday's Full Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart will get your attention from the start while a friendly aspect to both planets in an adventurous part might create a serious case of Mondayitis. While the Moon will leave on Tuesday, this will help to insert a playful influence into planets on the adventurous front that is here to stay. Yet the Moon will not only move on to spend the middle part of the working week in your career sector but at a friendly aspect to planets on the income and job fronts at a pivotal time for both. This will energise things across the income, work and career fronts. Yet while that is happening the lunar nodes will shift, with the North Node's return to your relationship sector and the South Node's to Scorpio on Wednesday ushering on a new era when it comes to a balance between your personal and relationship needs.
Mars' last full week in Sagittarius was always going to be important, both in its own right and for the extra time that this has tacked onto your birthday month, which ended just before Christmas. By the time the Sun left Sagittarius in December Venus and Mercury had already moved through, something that should have ended all planetary activity in your sign and cemented the launch of this new solar year. Instead, it was during your birthday month that Mars returned for the first time in nearly two years and until leaving early next week, the warrior planet of the cosmos will continue to fuel your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit. With the South Node wrapping up a 20 month visit to Sagittarius on Wednesday, once Mars leaves next week the launch phase will be over and the real journey will begin. Meanwhile, there is not only a turnaround on the job front this week but a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Monday's Full Moon in your relationship sector is as important for you as it is for your relationships. This is a Full Moon that will always fall at some point during your birthday month and as the Sun and Moon clash, this will put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. Yet in the process, this makes those needs more transparent and easier to understand, something that is ultimately empowering for you and your relationships. As this is the first Full Moon in your relationship sector since 2020 and with your birthday month ending on Thursday, this is important and timely for both. Fortunately, the Moon will also begin the week at a friendly aspect to planets in your communication sector. The Moon will leave on Tuesday and it is less than 12 hours later that two events will have exciting implications. The first is Uranus' direct turn in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, followed just a few hours later by the North Node's return.
By the time you move into the new week, Mercury has been in Aquarius for 15 days and as he will normally race through in just 14 to 15 days, he should either be gone or on his way out the door. With your birthday month and new solar year not beginning until Thursday, this had the potential to create a situation where your mind was getting ahead of itself. Instead, Mercury's retrograde turn over the weekend allows the Sun to catch up while buying you time to hear yourself think or reconsider some of the things that you may have rushed into during the first weeks of the year. In the meantime, the week not only begins with a Full Moon in your work sector on Monday, the first here since late 2020 but at a friendly aspect to both planets in your income sector. While the Moon will leave on Tuesday by the time the South Node returns to your career sector 12 hours later, its influence will be locked into place.
This is set to be a swiftly moving week, with the Moon making it important to stay in the moment, focusing on exploiting the potential at the time. It is the Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday that will not only see it form a friendly aspect to planets on the income and career fronts but during an important week for both. This will create a lot of positive energy across the income, work and career fronts right in the heart of the working week. Yet on Monday, it is a Full Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart that will have your attention and as the first here since late 2020, is a valuable chance to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. While the Moon will leave on Tuesday, the South Node's return to an adventurous part of your chart 12 hours later will continue that theme. Meanwhile, it is on Friday that the Moon will return for its first visit to your relationship sector for the year, just as communication support is building.
