There are two very different camps of planetary activity this week, each exciting. In the first camp, you still have a large number of planets in an adventurous part of your chart, all supporting Jupiter in his early weeks in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart. In the other camp, you have exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts, with the timing nothing short of extraordinary. It was just last week that the pressure on Saturn and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your career sector dropped back, just as Uranus' retrograde turn opened the doors to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. It was Mars' return to your work sector over the weekend that not only kicked off the busiest months of 2019 but threw planets on the income and career fronts a lifeline. With first Venus midweek and then the Sun on Friday leaving an adventurous part of your chart and returning to your busy work sector, your biggest challenge will be maintaining a balance between work and play.
There are a lot of planetary shifts this week, so much so that by the time you get to the end of the week, four planets will be in a different area of your chart to where they were last weekend. Fortunately they are all moving from and into the same two areas of your chart, otherwise, this could have drawn your attention in multiple directions. You moved into last weekend with all the faster moving planets in your home and family sector and almost all the immediate focus on home and family matters. That began to change with Mars' departure and return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart over the weekend. He will be followed by Venus on Wednesday, by the Sun two days later, by Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week. Slowly the pendulum is shifting away from home and family matters and onto all things fun, playful, romantic and creative.
When Jupiter turned direct in your relationship sector last week, it was just hours before Mercury not only returned to your communication sector but joined an army of planetary activity already assembled. In short, the tide turned at the best possible time, with so many planets in your communication sector that as the tide turned on the relationship front, everything turned. That army of support is leaving, making their final days especially important. Mars left your communication sector over the weekend, with Venus leaving on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and finally Mercury, the planet of communication next week. This gives your relationships time to get back on their feet again. In the meantime, as the planets leave they are one by one putting more focus on home, family and/or property matters.
Saturn and Jupiter are the two most powerful and influential planets in the solar system, so much so that their fortunes influence our lives and over recent weeks, this has been a disadvantage. It was just in the early hours of last week that everything started to change, with Jupiter turning retrograde in your work sector, just as the pressure came off Saturn in your relationship sector. This saw both come out of compromised positions at the same time and while this was good news on the job and relationship fronts, every aspect of life flows more easily when these two planets are in a good place. Things flow even more smoothly when things completely turn around, which they do for both this week. Jupiter is surrounded by support, with positive and exciting implications across the income, work and career fronts, especially in the first three days of the week. At the same time, as Venus follows Mars into your communication sector on Wednesday, this will give Saturn and your relationships a massive boost.
After a massive amount of planets came together in Leo last week, with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars coming together for the first time here at the same time in nine years, they are already disbanding. Together for just six days, this has given your new solar year a massive amount of momentum but this isn't quite over. Mars may have left over the weekend, but with Venus here until Wednesday and the Sun until Friday, the final days of your birthday month are giving you a chance to define what you want from this new solar year. With Mercury, the last to leave not leaving until next Thursday, you have until then to finalise your game plan and resolutions. In the meantime, as each planet leaves Leo they not only return to your income sector but immediately enter a world where there are exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts.
The lines between the past, present and future are definitely blurred this week, but there is a gradual shift throughout the week away from the past and onto the future. It began over the weekend when Mars left a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and returned to Virgo, making him the first planet to reach your sign this year. Returning ahead of the Sun, this gives you a jump on your birthday month and new solar year and a chance to get a feel for what excites you, your passions and drives. This is also giving you a lot more energy and enthusiasm or will, once his influence takes full effect. Because Mars has left so many planets in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, the lines between the past, present and future will remain blurred. However, Mars will be joined by Venus on Wednesday, while it is the Sun's same step that will bring your old solar year to a close and begin your birthday month and new solar year on Friday.
There are a lot of planets returning to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart this week and that can mean only one thing, that old doors are closing in order for new doors to open. It is the Sun's return on Friday that will begin the month long wind down of your old solar year, something that happens at this time every year. However, you had Mars return over the weekend to begin the wind down of a Mars cycle that began in 2017, with Venus returning on Wednesday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week. They will all return to Libra at various times over the course of September and October but for now, this is calling for more time to hear yourself think. Fortunately, things are becoming more settled across most areas of your life and especially on the job and career fronts, with continuing to settle professionally. Life is asking for more time to hear yourself think and there is no reason why that shouldn't be possible.
There are a lot of exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts this week, which the Moon's return to your work sector on Monday can help you capitalise on. It all comes down to timing. A week after turning direct in your income sector, Jupiter is ready to start moving things forward, with the Moon intuitive edge and friendly alignment coming at the right time. This also puts the Moon here during Venus' final days in your career sector and as they both leave on Wednesday, this will pack a lot into the early days of the week. Yet even after the Moon and Venus move on, forces across the income, work and career fronts will continue to work together. However, just as auspicious is where things move onto, with the Moon returning to your relationship sector just hours before Venus returns to your friendship sector. The adds to the already developing support across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.
A week on from his direct turn in Sagittarius, Jupiter is looking to the future with confidence and there should be a real sense of excitement when it comes to the journey ahead. This is partly because Jupiter is looking out at a clear road between now and his departure in December, with no obstacles and partly because of the support from a parade of planets in an adventurous part of your chart. Playful lunar vibes will make Venus' final days in an adventurous part of your chart count before they both leave on Wednesday to join a growing professional groundswell. Within the space of just a few hours, first the Moon will return to your work sector, for the first time since Uranus' retrograde turn here last week and Venus will join Mars in your career sector. There are two distinct camps forming, one around the personal, playful and adventurous fronts and the other around the income, work and career fronts.
If life started to feel easier and like there was less pressure last week then you can expect that to increase this week. The drop in pressure began when Mercury left Cancer, your opposing sign and ruler of your relationship sector early last week. However, an increase in confidence is due to the increase in planetary activity in your fellow Earth signs. Mars returned to fellow Earth sign Virgo over the weekend, also the most adventurous part of your chart. By the time Venus joins Mars there on Wednesday, he will already be fuelling a passion for adventure. Just hours before Venus' return the Moon will return to the third Earth sign Taurus, ruler of the most playful part of your chart. With Uranus in his first full week in retrograde motion there, this stacks the most friendly areas of your chart with planets that can not only make life easier and boost your confidence but also make life a lot more exciting.
Last week saw all the faster moving planets come together in the same place, at the same time, for the first time in nearly two years. The very fact that these are the faster moving planets in the solar system means that they are constantly on the move and while they came together in your relationship sector last week, they are already moving on. Mars left your relationship sector over the weekend, Venus will leave on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next Thursday. By the end of next week, there will be no more planetary activity on the relationship front, making this an intense but also fast paced time to invest what you can into your relationships, while you can. Where all these planets are moving to is your financial sector, with Mars already fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit by the time the week begins. By the time the Sun and Venus return a mission to take your financial power back has already begun.
There is a transition taking place this week that is less an ending of anything and more the natural evolution of the year hitting a number of auspicious points at the same time. What you have is a transition of the faster moving planets out of your work sector. It began with Mars' departure over the weekend and will continue with Venus' departure on Wednesday, the Sun's on Friday, Juno's over the weekend and finally Mercury's next Thursday. By the end of next week, there will be no planetary activity here. Yet throughout this time the planets are forming bonds with planets on the income and career fronts, who will maintain the momentum across the income, work and career fronts. In the meantime, as each planet leaves they are returning to your relationship sector and the timing couldn't be better. A week after Uranus turned retrograde in your communication sector, the Moon's return on Monday will ensure there is communication support from the get go. This is the start of something special.
