You're emerging from what might seem come confusing days, yet have been more important than you realise. It was the work/life balance issues that came to a head as your home and professional lives clashed over the last few days that begins an effort to prepare for some busy but opportune times ahead.
Right in the heart of an alliance between income, work and career forces, one that has been building since Easter, you're not only able to get a sense of what your options are and how everything fits in together, but of where you've been and where you're going. All of a sudden the fog of war clears to reveals a battlefield that works in your favour.
Your biggest danger right now, apart from painting any tensions you're under as a sign that something is wrong, is to letting this influence your professional or financial confidence.

While Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector, recovers from an opposition with Venus over the last few days, any work tension this created is already starting to make sense.

Just as work/life balance tensions are once more easing back an alliance between income, work and career forces will bring a boost in professional and financial confidence, along with a better sense of how to pace yourself. It's all about working smarter, realising that professional success doesn't have to be at the expense of your home and family life, which this year is more important than ever.
While Saturn won't retrograde back into your income sector for another 3 weeks, already the professional gods are factoring this in as they begin to define your professional desires and expectations for the coming year.

While Saturn won't return to your career sector for another 3 weeks already the money and professional gods are working together to prepare for the massive shifts this will create. Saturn left your career sector on Christmas Eve, bringing a chapter that began in October 2012 and issuing a goodbye that shouldn't see him back for another 3 decades. Yet he's on his way back to help you finish what has already been started, making it important to keep your mind and your options open.
It's in the Moon's final hours in your work sector that there's a need to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, trusting what your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses are telling you.
