As much as there is a need to keep your professional hat on, especially with Mercury leaving your career sector at the end of the week and Venus in a week from today, the reality is the journey will continue, with the professional gods staying on the job for the rest of this year and beyond. What is becoming urgent is that with heart and mind on the same page it's now that you've got a sense of what you want, what you're striving for and the confidence to believe that anything is possible.
Long after the holiday spirit should have worn off and even the memories should be wearing off, there is still a surprising amount of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure that can be embraced. The actual reason for that is that a pair of planets who last year left an adventurous part of your chart in the early days of the New Year are this year still here. Yet in reality the reason why doesn't matter and that what does matter is that there is a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure and it needs to be embraced, bottled or whatever else you have to do to hold onto it.
It's no wonder you may be experiencing some work/life balance tension today, for you're likely to be wearing many hats. It's your money and professional hats that are likely to be the most demanding today, with a new sense of urgency on the financial front and something profound developing on the professional front. Yet a sense of urgency doesn't mean challenging, just that your attention is required. With some smart time management you'll find things start to flow smoothly across all aspects of your life. Focus on the things that are important and choose not to sweat the small stuff.
There is a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in the air that needs to be embraced, regardless of how many balls you're juggling. Right now the money, relationship, work and professional gods all have balls in the air and demands on your time, but they have no right to dominate every moment of your life to a point where there is no time for spontaneity. This is something you're just starting to wake up to and something that is set to become a lot more serious over the coming weeks. It's all about balance and smart time management.
As she moves into her final week in your work sector, it's not just on the work front but in every aspect of your life where you're putting the needs of others first, there is a need to listen to what your heart is telling you. Sometimes, either because it's part of the job or it's something we ourselves are committed to we really do need to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes, but there are also times when you do have a choice and that's what Venus is asking that you look at. Trust that listening to your heart will lead you in the right direction.
The Moon's last visit to your relationship sector before the Sun returns next week is a valuable chance to flush out any strong emotional responses and even push some buttons. While it may feel as though the journey has been going on for some months and it has, until now it's been an overall relationship journey and a major mission to find a balance between your personal and relationship needs, whereas it's about to become more specific. Any strong emotional responses today will easily find their voice, bringing the potential for a breakthrough.
While the Moon has already moved on from yesterday's New Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, like a bell that can't be unrung this has drawn a line in the sand that there is no going back from. Even the fact that the Sun will return to your work sector next week to get this new working year off the ground, is only going to make it even more important to hold onto a need to follow your heart and a reminder that there must be fun and joy in your life. Moving forward life has to be a balance between work and play.
As she moves into her final week of a mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page Venus gains an ally, with the Moon stirring your heart's emotional responses today. This is a case of the right feelings coming to a head while you have the right vehicle to give those feelings a voice, even if the only one listening is you. Yet this is likely to touch something much deeper today, which might take you by surprise, tapping into an almost primal sense of yearning.
When you're dealing with balance issues, whether it's balancing personal and relationship needs, work/life balance or any other kind of balance, key to success is appreciating that the worst thing that could happen is for either side to win. If your own needs become more important than your relationship needs or your relationship needs become more important than your own you and your relationships will suffer, while if your home life becomes more important than your professional life or your professional life more important than your home life, both suffer. To achieve real success it has to be win/win.
As she moves into her final week in your sign Venus is finally bringing the sense of urgency that has been lacking until now. Up until this point, your birthday month may have been over, but with heart and mind still going through your options you not only had permission to keep both open as you explore your options, the stars implored that you did. Yet now, with Venus leaving next week, you've reached a point where you need to start trusting your heart and what it's telling you.
As you move into the final days of your birthday month you may be feeling the pressure to make choices, decisions and plans, especially after yesterday's New Moon. However, if you're feeling any pressure it's not coming from the stars and more likely from your own expectations, feeling you should be more ready or prepared than you feel you are. The reality is that with Venus still seven days away from Aquarius your heart has yet to find its voice and you can't commit to anything until that happens.
While the Moon's monthly visit to your sign is always a chance to get an intuitive read on your inner voice, able to tune into your own personal radio station to the universe, this current visit is especially important. As the last visit of this current solar year and before your birthday month and new solar year begins next week, this is a chance to look back and gain insight into the journey the year has taken you on and in the process begin the early steps of getting a sense of what this coming year will bring. What is clear is that old dreams are being reborn.
