In a month where your professional objectives and needs and priorities are starting to cement and there is likely to be a sense of stability and lack of urgency, there are signs that things are starting to hot up on the income and work fronts. As is always the case in January and often into February each year the focus is on getting your new professional year up to speed, with career matters always under the microscope. This annual push actually ended in late January this year, having been brought forward early to a point where much of this played out in the later month of 2014. January was more about tying up loose ends, which gave you a chance last month to work with Ceres and Pluto, as their alignment in your career sector gave you a chance to redefine your definition of success, a sense of your overall professional priorities for the coming year and indentifying any changes this required. It's on top of this more stable background that two events this month bring a chance to start looking to the future. The first event is a Full Moon in your work sector on the 6th March, which on face value is simply the Full Moon that falls at this time every year, designed to give work matters a push. However, as the last Full Moon before lucky Jupiter returns in August to kick off your luckiest year for work opportunities, growth and development in over a decade, the professional gods will be using this as a chance to shunt things onto their right track ahead of time. The second event is more to do with money matters, but Venus' return to your income sector on the 17th March not only opens the door to the most lucrative months of the year, but is a chance to gain from all you've invested professionally, since as far back as last October.
After a very intense, frenetic and dramatic push to get career matters up to speed and your new professional year off the ground, a push that the professional gods began as far back as early December, the early days of March are all about tying up loose ends. You moved into the year with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos in your career sector, your professional passions and fighting spirit engaged and a sense of confidence and determination that is over and above the norm. When the Sun, Mercury and Venus all returned to your career sector in January this was a chance to carry on what Mars started, able to give your new professional year the kind of traction that normally takes months to achieve. As you move into March Venus and Mars have long gone but the Sun only left on the 19th February, with one very unlikely planet staying behind to tie up loose ends. That planet is Mercury and while he's not unlikely to terms of his ability and has the intellectual savvy and strategic edge needed to do this incredibly well, but unlikely in that he's here at all. Mercury returned to your career sector for what should have been a 2 week visit on the 5th January, so should have been long gone. Instead Mercury turns retrograde in late January, with a retrograde phase not only buying you extra time but giving you a chance to retrace your steps, spend time at the drawing board and looking back through the rear view mirror. While there may be some work/life balance tension in the early days of the month, this is more a call to work smarter, knowing you have until Mercury leaves on the 13th March to tie up loose ends, get your head in the game, communication lines open and a game plan to work from.
It's not surprising that there is a lot of focus on career matters this month, for the Sun always spends the first 3 weeks of March in your career sector. However, what is surprising is the head start you've got and how much traction your new professional year is already likely to have gained. Last year Venus didn't return to your career sector until the 6th April and Mars didn't visit at all, with your heart not having its say until after your annual professional review was over and no chance at all to tap into your professional passions and fighting spirit. This year Venus and Mars have both been and gone and having left your career sector during the Sun's early days, the launch of this new professional year began with your professional desires, dreams, passions and fighting spirit already banked. You already know what excites you, where your heart stands and what you want from this new professional year and while the Sun's reality checks may curtail some of your enthusiasm, it replaces a bullish and bulletproof sense of confidence with something more realistic and practical. Mercury's return from the 13th March to the 31st March will ensure you have your head in the game, communication lines open and ideas on the table as a New Moon on the 20th March creates an opportunity to draw a new line in the sand and when the Sun leaves on the 21st March, staying on for another 10 days to tie up loose ends. Your professional instincts will be sharpest during the Moon's visit to your career sector from the 18th March to the 20th March and an intuitive read on work matters from the 10th March to the 12th March.
You've not only reached the most important professional month of the year but in several years if ever, to a point where there is no other words to describe this month other than game changing. That would be the case even if you just looked at career matters in isolation, with Mars' return to your career sector on the 20th February and Venus' on the 21st February and the four day alignment this created, not only getting career matters up to speed a month before the Sun is due to return on the 21st March, but in a dramatic way. It was the Moon's return just hours behind Venus that set the scene for a very rare triple alignment, the first anywhere since 2009 and the first in your career sector since 1981, 34 years ago. While the Moon has since moved on Venus and Mars are still here, with your professional instincts, desires, passions and fighting spirit not only fused, but with a new sense of confidence. With Uranus here from 2011 until 2019, keeping the laws of synchronicity in effect 365 days a year and the Eureka moments flowing, with Venus keeping the laws of attraction in effect until she leaves on the 17th March and Mars continuing to fuel your professional passions and fighting spirit all month, by the time the Sun returns on the 21st March and Mercury on the 31st March you'll be well on the way to getting this new professional year off to an exceptional start. While you may consider March a little late in the year to get your professional year moving, this is something that doesn't usually happen until April. If I stopped here I would still be describing an incredibly game changing professional month, one of your best in years, but this is just part of the story. While the Sun, Venus and Mercury return to your career sector every year, usually in late March and into April and Mars every other year, not only have you got off to an exceptionally good start this year, for the first time in 12 years you've got lucky Jupiter in your income sector and for the first time in 27 years Saturn in your work sector at the same time.
There are two stories happening this month, which come together to create one bigger story, one that suggested that you have a much better professional month on your hands than you had expected or as conditions suggested in the early days. This is and should be a fairly low key but confident month, especially for work matters. With career matters not usually kicking off until later April and into May, this gives you some breathing space and with Pluto spending his last full month in direct motion in your work sector, to slowly get your bearing and work behind the scenes. After a busy end to 2014 and start to 2015, it was last month that an alignment between Ceres and Pluto, the two dwarf planets that will keep work matters ticking over all year, has given you a chance to redefine your priorities, making it easier to work smarter and channel your time and attention into the things that matter, making it much easier to pick your battles wisely. This is the first story that is happening this month and it will continue, with Pluto slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn next month, easing back the pace considerably. However, it's not the only story, with a Full Moon in your income sector on the 6th March holding clues to the fact that something else is about to happen. This is a Full Moon that will always bring income matters and opportunities to a head, turning and/or tipping point and after a real push to get work matters up to speed is often a chance to benefit financially from hard work already invested. However, this is also likely to bring a boost in professional confidence and anticipation, over 6 weeks before the Sun is due to return to your career sector. While that's still the case Venus, who last year didn't return until the 29th May is returning on the 17th March and Mars, who didn't return at all is returning on the 1st April. While a slower pace will remain in play on the work front all month, new doors will open and career and professional opportunities will start developing from the 17th March.
While the frenetic pace that you moved into the year with and continued to experience in January and most of February has eased back, as you move into the new month you're not quite at the point yet where it's time to bring things home. It was Mars' return to your work sector on the 4th December that not only brought a busy end to your 2014 professional year but a busy start to this professional year, for while the Sun doesn't return until the 20th January each year, with Venus having returned on the 4th January and Mercury on the 5th January, even over the holiday period there was no slowing down. However, Mars and Venus both left in January and the Sun left on the 19th February and with the Sun's month long visit beginning and ending with a New Moon, the push to get work matters up to speed has been fully exhausted. The fact that you have any planets in your work sector at all is an anomaly, with Mercury the one planet you shouldn't expect to still be here. Mercury returned to your work sector on the 5th January for what should have been a 2 week visit, but almost 2 months on you'll move into March to find him still here, but with a retrograde phase, a wealth of experience and 20/20 hindsight under his belt. This smart and intellectually savvy planet is your ruling planet so you know exactly how to work with him, how to keep your head in the game, work smarter and make smart and informed choices, decisions and plans. Not due to leave until the 13th March, the fact that you've got these additional weeks is a real bonus, especially as there'll be no more planets here once he's gone. There may be some work tension in the early days of the month, but this will be more a call to pull your head in, work smarter and to pace yourself. This is a guard against keeping up the frenetic pace of the past, which you no longer need. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 16th March to the 18th March, just days after Mercury's departure and will bring a chance to sum things up, while you'll not only have a chance to get your professional objectives and sharpen your professional instincts during the Moon's visit to your career sector from the 25th March to the 27th March, but start looking ahead to next month's career opportunities.
While the game is the same the dynamics have shifted from where they were at the start of last month, but at the same time you're now benefiting from last month's very active and highly charged times. While the Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of March in your work sector and it's very normal to have your work hat on at this time of year, what isn't the norm is to have had the head start you've had. Last year Venus didn't return to your work sector until April, after the Sun had left, your new working year was already under way and setting things in motion before your heart had a chance to have its say and Mars, well he didn't return at all so had no input. Both planets were out to change that and both returned to your work sector in January, making sure they got in first, making sure that when the Sun returned on the 19th February to begin your annual review of work matters and to mark the official launch of this new working year, that your drives, passions, fighting and competitive spirit were already engaged, you knew what you wanted and you'd even had a chance to revisit old dreams. Mars left on the 20th February, during the Sun's first full day and Venus a day later, here during the Sun's early days but then leaving him to get on with more mundane matters. Venus and Mars' job was to motivate you and leave you with a sense of what's possible and the Sun's job is to work out the 'when, where and how', which they didn't want any part of. This is where things stand as you move into March, with a huge amount of options and cards on the table. However, it's not until Mercury returns from the 13th March to the 31st March that you'll have a chance to get your head in the game and tie up loose ends. Mercury will be here during a New Moon on the 20th March and as the Sun leaves on the 31st March, with this smart and intellectually savvy planet the perfect planet to bring you into the end game, with the launch of this new working year not only ending on the 31st March, but where you'll have your head in the game until the end.
While March is a month where the focus always shifts onto work matters, that's not usually until later in the month and not with the head start you're already experiencing. The reality is, that with Uranus in your work sector from 2011 to 2019 things are never going to completely go off the boil, with the laws of synchronicity in effect and Eureka moments continuing 365 days a year. However, it's the Sun's return to your work sector on the 21st March each year that throws the spotlight on your work situation, matters and options, bringing things up to speed. Last year Venus didn't return until the 29th May, long after the Sun had gone, your new working year and work matters were on an established course and long after your heart had any real chance to have a say or an impact. And as for Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos he didn't return to your work sector at all in 2014, so both he and Venus have a point to prove and a determination to make up for lost time, something they've both had a chance to do. It was Mars' return to your work sector on the 20th February and Venus' on the 21st February, a month before the Sun gets here, that not only got work matters off to an early start, but a dramatic one, with their four day alignment turning all the lights to green. If this was all that was happening, with Venus in your work sector until the 17th March, Mars until the 1st April, the Sun returning on the 21st March and Mercury on the 31st March, then you would have what is without a doubt the best month of the year for work matters. But this is part of a much bigger picture, for while the solar spotlight will always fall on work matters in March, the last time you had lucky Jupiter in your career sector at the same time was 12 years ago and it's been 27 years since you've had Saturn in your income sector at the same time.
Things have been fairly slow professionally for some time, on a plateau since the last lot of planetary activity in either of your professional houses ran its course in September. That's nothing to worry about and is the norm, with August/September always the most active months of any year for career matters and April/May for work matters and it's in this stable phase that much of the real work is accomplished. This has also given you a chance to focus more on income matters, something that continues both this month and throughout the rest of the year. However, while things don't usually start to heat up again until April, in the early days of the month there'll be signs of change in the air, both in the short and the long term. A Full Moon in your career sector on the 6th March will be the first significant event of this professional year, where the professional gods are able to get actively engaged and while this is a Full Moon that falls at this time every year, the message behind it will be anything but. Not only is Venus returning to your work sector 11 days later on the 17th March, over a month before the Sun is due to get here, but as the last Full Moon before lucky Jupiter returns to your career sector, opening the door to your biggest professional year in over a decade, this will give the professional gods a chance to start manoeuvring things into position. As well as giving professional matters a boost just days before Venus, who last year didn't return to your work sector until the 29th May, returns to open new doors on the work front, it is the last chance the professional gods have to shunt things onto the right track. The professional gods know what lies ahead, the huge professional opportunities opening up between July 2015 and September 2016 and if they're on one track and you're on another, then they'll use the leverage this Full Moon can provide to shove things onto the right track. This makes it important to adopt some blind faith, trusting that the professional gods know what they're doing.
What you have this month is a nice stable professional month, something that both you and income forces need and while this means there'll be no dramatic or new developments, this is a chance to cement your position before new doors open on the work front next month. March isn't usually an active time of year for work or career matters, with September/October always the most active months of the year on the career front and May/June for work matters. There should be no planets in either of your professional houses at this time of year and while there isn't, with the North Node in your career sector since February 2014, though not an object and more a gravitational force, this is keeping professional matters on track and the momentum going. Simply by trusting your gut and going with the natural flow the professional gods are keeping you on track for the opportunities ahead. The first planetary activity in either of your professional houses will come when Venus returns to your work sector on the 12th April, something that last year didn't happen until late June. While that's next month, this makes the Moon's visits to your work and career sectors this month especially important. It's during the Moon's visit to your work sector from the 25th March to the 27th March, the last visit before Venus returns, that you'll have an intuitive read on work matters and a chance to start lining up at the right doors before they open. In the meantime, the Moon's monthly visit to your career sector from the 7th March to the 10th March is a chance to sharpen your professional instincts and get your bearings, making sure that you're on track and linked in with the natural flow.
With no planetary activity in either of your professional houses this month there is not only a chance to continue to let things settle, making the Moon's visits to both especially important, but also a chance to focus more on income matters. However, there is a shift this month that suggests changes ahead, but while the event itself takes place this month it will be another 3 months before any real impact is felt. That event is Saturn's retrograde turn on the 15th March, just under 3 months after leaving your career sector on Christmas Eve. This is the point where Saturn has that 'hang on a minute' moment, does a U turn and begins heading back. It will take Saturn another 3 months to retrograde back into your career sector, not returning until the 13th June, but the very fact that he has turned back and is on his way is likely to trigger a reminder of the resolutions he left you with. Saturn's double dip visit will only last a few months, leaving again on the 18th September and then not returning for another 3 decades, but the professional gods are being put on notice that the auditor and hard task master of the cosmos is heading back to check on things. While you will be tested when he returns, it will also be a chance to tie up loose ends and will be a second chance to appreciate what you didn't before. This makes the Moon's visit to your career sector from the 10th March to the 12th March especially important, for it will leave you with your professional instincts especially sharp just days before Saturn turns retrograde and begins turning back. When Saturn does return back it will be right in the heart of some of the best work opportunities and developments of the year and while they won't kick in until May, you'll move into the month with the Moon in your work sector and coming full circle from the 27th March to the 29th March, you'll begin and end the month with an intuitive read on work matters. It's during the course of the month that the main focus will remain on income matters.
While all the main action this month is playing out on the income front, the professional gods are getting a very easy and auspicious ride. While you have had Uranus in your income sector since 2011, for the first time in 12 years you moved into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector and for the first time in 27 years Saturn in your career sector and with these three powerful planets working together, from the get go this created a year with a huge amount of potential on the income, work and career fronts. All you needed was a trigger and that trigger came last month, when on the 20th February Mars returned to your income sector and on the 21st February Venus returned, continuing to create a very real opportunity to smash through any glass ceilings this month. With both having moved into an auspicious aspect to Saturn in your career sector late last month, Venus moving into an auspicious aspect with Jupiter on the 4th/5th March and Mars on the 10th March, this creates an auspicious month for income, work and career matters as a whole. The reason I say that Jupiter and Saturn are getting a free ride this month, is not just the support they're getting from income matters, which is what is driving things, but the fact that these two giants of the solar system are themselves slowing down. Jupiter is slowing down ahead of his direct turn in your work sector on the 9th April and Saturn ahead of his retrograde turn in your career sector on the 15th March, creating a situation where, from the 15th March to the 9th April the doors will be open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the work and career fronts, at the same time that new income opportunities are opening up. The Moon will move through your career sector from the 12th March to the 14th March, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp as Saturn turns retrograde and the tide turns. At the same time you'll have an intuitive read on work matters in the early and later days of the month.
