The biggest danger isn't from any professional pressure or work/life balance tension at the start of the week but how easy this would be to ignore. The week begins with an opposition between Mars on the home and Pluto on the career front just running its course, with the planets of war and revolution putting your work/life balance to the test. This is a valuable work/life balance reminder, especially when it comes to the lessons learned over recent years. Starting the week with the Moon not only in your income sector but at a friendly aspect to Pluto will ensure you retain your professional confidence. A better sense of where the money is will also make it easier to work smarter, giving you a better read on not only your professional priorities but your income priorities as well. If you know what you are working for and why it is easier to make the right decisions at the right time.
By doing nothing there is reason for professional confidence this week, even in a week that is more about having your money than your professional hat on. Saturn, now the only planet in either of your two professional houses, is still at a near standstill after his retrograde turn in your career sector two weeks ago. Jupiter's retrograde turn later in the month will see him return to your career sector but not until later next month, finally giving you a chance to regroup. It is the Moon's return to your income sector midweek and friendly aspect to Saturn as it moves through that will create positive conditions on the income and career fronts. As well as aligning with the Sun on Thursday to create an eclipsing New Moon, the Moon will form a friendly aspect to Saturn and align with Mercury, in retrograde motion in your income sector. A catalyst for both new and untapped income potential could also be a catalyst for untapped professional potential.
As Venus spends her first full week and Mars his final days in your income sector, they are fully entrenched with both planets in your career sector. After Mars spent the first half of last week at a friendly aspect to dreamy Neptune in your career sector, Venus' return to your income sector last Thursday brought her straight into a friendly aspect to lucky Jupiter there. This is a win/win for the planets on the income and career fronts. Until he leaves your income sector over the weekend Mars will continue to declare war on roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined while urging you to fight for what you deserve. At the same time, Venus is following behind, as she begins what can be some of the most lucrative weeks of any year. With Jupiter and Neptune both slowing down ahead of retrograde turns in your career sector later in the month, the professional conditions are becoming more confident and focused.
The Moon's departure from your career sector on Sunday, allows you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled but also with a clearer mandate. While the implications from an eclipsing Full Moon on the job front late last month continue to run their course and play out, you will be feeling a lot more confident about where things stand professionally. The Moon was in your career sector when the dwarf planet Ceres left last month, wrapping up your first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years. It was over the weekend that you had a chance to revisit those needs and priorities, leaving you feeling more confident when it comes to where to from here. This has also been a chance to get your professional ducks in a row ahead of Mars' return to your income sector over the weekend and the start of the most lucrative months of 2021.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. However, this time this could also be a game changer, with the Moon finding itself in the right place at the right time. The Moon only returned on Sunday so will be here throughout Monday and Tuesday, giving the new week a solid boost from the start. However, the real advantage is that this comes just as a clash between Mars and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector is coming to a close. This is a clash that has put knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test, with the planets of war and revolution battling from opposite sides of life's fence. With your professional instincts sharp this will make it easier to work smarter while the Moon's friendly aspect to Pluto can boost your confidence while making it easier to think on your feet.
This is a significant week on both the job and career fronts and while a lot of this is because of the Moon, it is simply a trigger for everything invested on both fronts so far. A lot of water has passed under the bridge on both fronts this year but it was Venus' departure from your career sector last week that has brought you to a point where it is less about the 'what' and more about the 'when, where and how'. With Saturn in retrograde motion in your work and Mercury in your career sector, on both fronts, there is a chance to regroup while the Sun continues to shine the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. It is the Moon's return to your career sector midweek and the eclipsing New Moon this will create on Thursday that could be a catalyst for both new and untapped professional and job potential. The second half of the working week will be the most significant.
In a case of perfect timing, Venus has returned to your career sector in time to take over from where Mars will leave off when he leaves over the weekend. This is the first time that Venus and Mars have been in your career sector at the same time and while they will only spend nine days together, the stars are aligned in their favour throughout that time. By the time Venus returned last week Mars had been here for six weeks and had just spent the first half of last week at a friendly aspect to Neptune on the job front. When Venus returned last Thursday, she moved straight into a friendly aspect to Jupiter there, bringing the planets of attraction, passion, luck and dreams together. Until he leaves over the weekend Mars will continue to fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit but will also declare war on roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined. These are some of the best conditions seen on the job and career fronts in a long time.
To begin with and for the majority of the week, it is business as usual and no reason to suggest this will change anytime soon. However, starting the week with the Moon having just left your work sector on Sunday means that you have an intuitive read on work and job matters and also of your needs and priorities on the job front from the start. The Moon was in your work sector when the dwarf planet Ceres left last month, ending your first deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front in four years. It was over the weekend that the Moon brought a chance to revisit this and the timing couldn't be better. It is later this week that everything changes, with Mars returning to your career sector over the weekend for the first time in two years. As well as opening new doors on the career front for the first time in eight months, over the coming months, this will have positive implications across the income, work and career fronts.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is always an advantage, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the start. However, while the Moon returned on Sunday for an ordinary monthly visit this could also see a lot of things fall into place. What makes this visit significant is that it is not just the first visit since the Sun left, taking the solar spotlight off work and job matters but the Moon has come full circle from last month's New Moon. Whatever this triggered four weeks ago is now coming to fruition, with a chance for things to fall into place or for the different strands to come together. This is also the point where you can sum up the months of planetary activity on the job front and regroup, gaining a sense of where to from here. It is on Monday that the Moon will align with Uranus and the dwarf planet Ceres, the planets that will keep the wheels turning on the job front.
This is not only an important week on the job front but a point where the past, present and future come together as you begin to wrap things up. Things became active on the job front when Mars returned in March and while he left in April the Sun, Mercury and Venus' return has kept things evolving. Venus' departure last week was an important turning point for like Mars, her focus has been on what's possible and on giving you something to aim or to strive for. This leaves the Sun and Mercury to focus more on the 'when, where and how' and knowing that when they leave this will end all planetary activity on the job front, they are working to tie up loose ends. In retrograde motion, Mercury is looking to the past to ensure no stones have been left unturned while the Sun is looking to the future. It is the Moon's return midweek and the eclipsing New Moon this will create on Thursday that can act as a catalyst for both.
While they will only spend nine days together, from Venus' return last week to Mars' departure from your work sector over the weekend this is bringing them together here for the first time in 12 years. By the time Venus returned last week Mars had already been here for six weeks, fuelling your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit but also declaring war on roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined. Mars is the warrior planet of the cosmos and he needs something to fight for and Venus' return has changed the dynamics of his final days. Until now Mars has been on his own, with the pressure to both start and see things through. Venus and the planets yet to return will focus on the latter, leaving Mars free to forge new paths, push through locked doors and obstacles. The Moon's return on Friday will ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters and on Mars' influence as he leaves less than 24 hours later.
It is not only business as usual to start with on the professional front but a fairly quiet week, with nothing to suggest the massive sea change underway by the end of the week. It has been barely two weeks since an eclipsing Full Moon on the career front and as it will take until the Moon comes full circle later in the month to fully play out, there is a lack of urgency and a call for patience. If your sixth sense is telling you that this is the calm before the storm trust it because things a set to heat up long before the Moon returns. The change happens over the weekend, giving you one last working week in the slow lane. This is no gradual increase in the pace of this professional year but a sudden shift, with Mars' return to your work sector opening new doors on the job front and kicking off the busiest months of 2021. This is Mars' first visit in two years and this is set to have positive implications across the income, work and career fronts over the middle months of the year.
