While the focus is more on money matters in the early part of the week, with a Full Moon in your income sector dominating things, the timing couldn't be better. This is the Moon's last visit to your income sector before Venus and Jupiter's game changing return to your career sector and with the Moon moving into a friendly aspect to the planets already there, this will be your first sense of the change ahead. The Moon returns to your income sector every four weeks and as well as sharpening your nose for money, a friendly aspect to planets on the career front will boost your professional confidence. While a Full Moon has more lucrative potential, the close proximity to major new developments on the career front will energise forces across both fronts. After the last planet left your work sector last week, across the income, work and career fronts this is a chance to regroup.
For any other planet and at any other time, a tough start to the week could have put a dent on their last full week in your work sector. However, when that planet is Mars this instead turns into rocket fuel for your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Knowing that once Mars leaves early next week he won't be back until 2021, push back from both the Moon and planets in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart over the weekend, will simply fire up your warrior spirit. Fortunately this is also Juno, queen of commitment's first full week in your work sector and while Mars is too impatient to pay attention to the message delivered over the weekend, she isn't. Here until September 2020, where Mars is in a race to gain as much momentum and traction on the job front as possible, Juno is running a marathon. This allows part of you to heed the reminders when it comes to knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
While it is a given that the Sun will be in your work sector at this time of year and it is a given that he will, at some point during his month long visit be confronted by a Full Moon, other developments make this an extraordinary week. The Moon will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart in the early hours of the week, nearly 48 hours before coming to a head as a Full Moon. This is a Full Moon that at around this time every year will put knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test. It is what is happening at the time that is extraordinary, with a rare Mercury eclipse or transit in effect as the Full Moon is building. This is no different to the mechanics behind a solar eclipse, except Mercury is much smaller so will be seen as a small dot crossing the face of the Sun. This can only happen when Mercury is in retrograde motion and is a sudden revelation of where you've been and where to from here.
At various times during the week, there is pressure on planets on the job and career fronts, with a familiar message. It began over the weekend when both planets in your home and family sector where in separate oppositions with both planets in your career sector at the same time. Any professional pressure or work/life balance tension this created will already be dialling back as you move into the new week, but it brings a valuable work/life balance reminder at the right time. It is the Moon's return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Wednesday that will create a clash with all four planets now in your work sector between then and Friday, each time bringing the same message. This time the message is knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. However, with both the pace and momentum on the job front picking up dramatically over the coming weeks, these are the right reminders at the right time.
With Venus just two and Jupiter just three weeks away from their game changing return to your work sector, just having the Moon return to your career sector in the early hours of the week is an advantage. Yet while the Moon returns every four weeks, this is the only time it will return as a Full Moon and this close to game changing developments on the job front, this is set to energise your entire professional game. The Moon will be in your career sector for nearly 48 hours before the Full Moon peaks and it is during the time that this is building that it will form a friendly aspect to the planets already in your work sector. This close to major new developments, what might otherwise be a temporary vitalising or energising of forces on the job and career fronts is the first signs of something major building. When Venus and Jupiter return to your work sector it will be to find Uranus in your career sector for the first time in eight decades, with clues this week of what is to come.
With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses until Venus' return to your work sector next month, the Moon's visits have become a lot more important. This was always going to make the Moon's return to your career sector on Wednesday important. Returning right in the middle of the working week, the Moon will return to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and to act as a trigger for career and professional developments. What makes this visit especially important is that this is the Moon's last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month, so is both a practice run and a chance for the professional gods to set some things in motion that can come to fruition in four weeks' time. The Moon will also make a friendly aspect to Mars during the warrior planet of the cosmos' last full week in your income sector, giving his pursuit of income potential something to latch onto professionally.
While there is still a strong and growing bond between forces across the income, work and career fronts, the dynamics and centre of focus will shift and change as the week progresses. To begin with, the focus is more on income matters, with a rare Mercury eclipse or transit in the early part of the week bringing a huge amount of clarity that comes with 20/20 hindsight and foresight. It is midweek that Mercury's friendly aspect to Neptune, in retrograde motion in your work sector comes just as he moves into his own last full week in retrograde motion. As well as a boost in confidence on both fronts, this will combine your focus on untapped income and job potential. It is the Moon's return to your career sector over the weekend that will bring a chance to read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts. The weekend will be the perfect chance to explore your professional instincts and imagination.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is a mixed blessing or so it might seem at the time. The Moon will leave in the early hours of the week, but starting the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters is an advantage you will retain. It was over the weekend that the Moon returned and having come full circle from last month's Full Moon, this has put a lot of things into perspective now that they have run their course. However, the Moon returned to find that there was still planetary activity in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and in particular Mars. Until the warrior planet of the cosmos returns to Scorpio next week you might still be running on empty but there is also a genuine need to hold back. Any work tension or job pressure at the start of the week will ease but has been a timely reminder when it comes to knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
The Moon doesn't just return to your work sector in the early hours of the week but as a Full Moon, one that is a slow burn that allows you to ride these waxing lunar vibes for nearly 48 hours. Until the Moon leaves on Wednesday, a building Full Moon will see the Moon's influence build progressively and for its influence to occupy the first three days of the week. This is a Full Moon that falls here at this time every year, halfway between the Sun's last visit and the next, so therefore at what is not usually an active point in any year on the job front. However, for just the second time in eight decades Uranus is here, creating the potential for unexpected, serendipitous or eureka moments, just two weeks before game changing new developments on the income front. Just weeks before the most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade begins, this is the kind of jump start that work and job matters need.
While the Sun, Venus and Mercury have all been and gone from your career sector and that will usually have brought all planetary activity for the year to a close, Mars was always going to stay on in order to tie up loose ends. That job became a lot easier with Juno's return last week. As the queen of commitment and here until September 2020, Juno's message to Mars is 'you do you and I'll do me'. This frees Mars to do what he does best, which is to fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit without thought to how you are going to follow this through or back things up. Juno doesn't have the power to get things started but as the queen of commitment she has the sustainability to ensure that a 'body in motion remains in motion'. This crossover week is a chance for Mars to focus on the sprint to get things up to speed, knowing it will turn into a marathon once he leaves early next week.
As the Sun spends his last full week in your career sector and Mercury his last in retrograde motion here, there is a bit of everything. You have both being confronted by a Full Moon that is putting your work/life balance to the test, a rare Mercury eclipse that will bring a stunning amount of clarity and a chance to partner this with Neptune's focus on untapped income potential. You will even end the week with the Moon spending the weekend in your work sector. An intuitive read on work and job matters will allow you to better read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts. Yet before you reach that point, a Mercury eclipse just as the Full Moon is building in the early part of the week will provide the raw insight you can process at the other end of the week. Across the income, work and career fronts this creates a need to take things one day at a time.
With Venus moving into her final two and Jupiter his final three weeks in your career sector, there is a sense that everything is starting to come together. Jupiter has now been here for 12 months and is in the process of bringing everything you have been working towards all year home, with Venus here to attract opportunities and boost your professional confidence. Yet despite the fact that everything is coming together professionally it is still likely to feel like you are waiting for something. That something is the Sun's return next week, Mercury's return next month and Mars' return in the New Year. This means that while this is the point where you are beginning to bring this professional year home, the process will continue well into the New Year. This makes the Moon's return to deliver some work/life balance reminders in the second half of the week timely, for you are running a marathon and not a sprint.
