Mercury is not only staying on in your income sector to ensure his smart head for money is used to maximum advantage, he is continuing to work with the professional gods to secure every new advantage and to continue to ensure no stone is left unturned. While financial and money matters themselves are now demanding more of your attention, with a chance to tap back into your old financial passions and fighting spirit, you've still got an eye on income potential and you are far from ready to declare every option fully explored.
Chances are, while when your birthday month ended 10 days ago you had a fairly good idea of your intentions and expectations for the coming year, you're starting to change your mind a little. This doesn't mean your intentions or your desires and expectations for the future have changed and more the way you're going to achieve them. What you're waking up to is that while the end outcome needs to stay the same that many roads lead to Rome. With your mind continuing to sharpen you're starting to appreciate more and more options and better ways of doing things.
The Moon's first visit to your career sector since Mars retrograded back into your work sector over the weekend is a valuable chance to sharpen your professional instincts and get your bearings, but also take in the full implications. Just when your professional year was reaching a point where it was more about the slow, long haul stretch of the journey, the professional gods have played a major wildcard. Yet rather than look externally this is about looking within, paying attention to what may have changed in you over the last few days, especially when it comes to your warrior and fighting spirit.
Despite the fact that the closing weeks of an old solar year is a time for seclusion, withdrawal and time to hear yourself think you're moving into some of the most important days of the year for personal and professional friendship and relationship building, with a need to make yourself available. Mars' departure from your work sector over the weekend means that life is likely to feel less busy and while you still only have 24 hours in each day, those hours don't seem as rushed or hectic. Maybe you do have time to create the balance in your life that has been so difficult or seemed so complicated until now.
While it might seem like a case of bad timing, that just as you move into some of the most important days of the year for income, work and career matters, with the professional and money gods coming together one last time, that the Moon should return to an adventurous part of your chart that suggests the timing is perfect. While this is a coming together of income, work and career forces, the reality is the journey will continue and a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure allows you to see that this is exactly what it is, a journey.
The last time that Mars retrograded back into your communication sector just months after leaving was 79 years ago, so what are the odds that the Moon would return to your relationship sector just hours later. Moving on today the Moon has down its job of stirring up your emotional responses, leaving you with the means to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice in a way that you didn't think possible. This hasn't just triggered the potential for a communication breakthrough, but has forever changed the landscape of what's possible.
At the same time that there is a new sense of confidence on the income and work fronts there is a general sense of financial confidence growing that is completely independent. In their different corners income and financial forces are undergoing a real transformation and the fact that they're also acting in competition is creating just enough financial tension to keep you on your toes and motivated. From out of nowhere and just since the weekend a sense of financial confidence has taken root that is here to stay. Something has shifted.
While there is no doubt that Mars' return to your sign over the weekend has put pressure on your relationships or that this is likely to come to a head next week, there is also no doubt that this is an advantage for both you and your relationships. In your relationship sector for almost two months now Mercury, planet of communication has never been put to the test, but due to move into opposition with Mars next week and your personal and relationship needs due to clash, there is pressure to do his job. Mercury has come to give your relationships a voice and it's now up to you to make sure every one of his final 13 days is put to good use.
In what might seem a case of bad timing, just as you move into some of the most important days of the year for income, work and career matters the Moon returns to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. Yet while the Moon will join the professional gods in a few days' time, for now today's lunar vibes are here to ensure that you don't lose sight of the fact that life must be a balance between work and play. You'll be more successful in the long run if you maintain your sense of perspective.
In the Moon's final hours in your communication sector make the most of a chance to give your emotional responses a voice and ensure the communication lines are open, even if there is no pressure or pressing reason to do so. You might not see the significance or importance now, but as the Moon's last visit before the Sun and Venus return to your relationship sector this is a vitally important chance to ensure the communication lines are open. Even if it's just a start that's better than nothing, creating a pattern that will be easy to maintain and there when you need it.
The one issue you haven't had to deal with over recent months is work/life balance, mainly because with the professional gods noticeably absent from your life there was nothing to balance. Mars' return to your career sector over the weekend changed that, especially as Mercury has yet to wrap up his extended visit to your home and family sector. While Mercury and Mars won't move into opposition and work/life balance tensions won't peak until next week, already there's a need to ward this off by having a horse in both races. Smart time management is essential, but also ensuring that when you're at home you're at home and when you're at work you're at work.
While Mercury, now in his final two weeks in your communication sector, was put to use yesterday by the personal and/or relationship tensions the Moon was fuelling, today they're being diverted to help out as you move into some of the most important days of the year for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building. While you need to continue what was started over the last few days, continuing to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice, communication becomes a lot more large scale and broad from today.
