Where money matters have dominated over recent weeks and there has been financial tension, with your income and financial sectors in opposition with each other, this is the week where the money gods start to move away. The Sun's departure from your income sector leaves you with a clear sense of what you're fighting for but with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos not leaving until later next week, this is when the gloves come off. With the Moon in your work sector until Tuesday and just enough professional tension to keep you on your toes, this is when it becomes more about bringing things home. In the meantime, the focus is shifting more to communication with Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication, putting heart and mind on the same page, giving both a voice.
You're wrapping up your birthday month with the Moon in a playful part of your chart and Pluto, planet of change and revolution challenging your excuses, reminding you that it's all about the journey and embracing a sense of adventure. This will provide the right mix of support and tension, reminding you of what's possible but refusing to let you hide behind your excuses. With Mercury spending his first full week in your income sector and the Sun returning on Tuesday, this was always going to be a week where the focus shifts more to income matters, yet a lunar eclipse in your financial sector over the weekend is likely to see financial matters come to a head as well. As you move into some auspicious income weeks this will be one last chance to take care of any financial housekeeping first.
While the Sun will return to your sign on Tuesday, kicking off your birthday month and a brand new solar year, this is one year where the lines between the past and future are likely to be blurred, with no sudden cut off, not yet anyway. With Venus having returned to your sign earlier in the month and Mercury late last week, heart and mind have already moved on and are focused on the future before your new solar year even begins. This allows you to begin your new solar year with heart and mind on the same page, with lucky Jupiter ensuring that you also begin with luck on your side. Yet with Mars not returning to your sign until later next week it's going to feel that something is holding you back, that you should be excited and motivated but not quite finding the energy. It will come.
While you began the 12 month wind down of a Jupiter cycle of expansion last June and you've had a greater than normal need to go within, take time out to hear yourself think and for soul searching, whether that it's life had too many demands, you were too busy or saw this as a luxury you couldn't afford, everything has changed. Since Venus joined Jupiter in your sector of subconscious thinking, imagination and review the desire to put out the 'do not disturb' sign has been greater, with Mercury's return late last month allowing you to better manage your time and make the most of any time you do have for navel gazing. As the Sun's begins the month long wind down of your solar year on Tuesday this becomes a necessity, for with major new doors about to open you need time to reflect.
While a professional push that began in mid April won't run its course until Mars leaves your career sector next Friday, Mercury's departure late last week and the Sun's on Tuesday is dialling back some of the focus. Yet the reality you're likely to experience is that with fewer planets in your career sector things are likely to speed up and as the last remaining planet is Mars, this is likely to see your professional passions and fighting spirit move into overdrive. Even work pressure in the early days of the week is likely to inspire you and with the Moon in your income sector until Tuesday, a nose for money will allow you to pick your battles wisely. The weekend could be a challenge, with a need to keep your professional hat on conflicting with a romantically charged lunar eclipse.
While Mars, planet of passion will remain in your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery until later next week, evoking a passion for adventure, a hunger for life and an unwillingness to hide behind your excuses, professional momentum gaining speed and by the time Mars returns later next week this will become unstoppable. With Venus in your career sector since earlier in the month, Mercury since late last week, the Sun returning on Tuesday and all here to help lucky Jupiter to bring things home, this is when everything you've been working towards since early last year will start falling into place. Yet as well as needing to keep the spirit of adventure, discovery and curiosity alive there's also a need to address any work/life balance issues, especially over the weekend.
While there are still loose ends to tie up on the money front and with Mars not leaving your financial sector until later next week there is still more to play out, Mercury's departure late last week and the Sun's on Tuesday brings you into the end game. Even the Moon's visit to your income sector from Thursday to Saturday will work to your advantage, giving you a nose for money and just enough financial tension to throw fuel on Mars' financial passions and fighting spirit. At the same time that a sense of adventure and the spirit of discovery and curiosity become stronger there is likely to be some relationship tension. Yet this is more about raising the bar and with a lunar eclipse in your communication sector over the weekend, brings the potential for a breakthrough.
There are 3 main games in town this week, keeping the focus on relationship, money and work matters, with a mix of tension on all 3 fronts but also a sense that the gods are working behind the scenes. While Venus left your relationship sector earlier in the month, Mercury late last week and the Sun will leave on Tuesday, with Mars staying on until later next week and the Moon's return to your sign on Tuesday pushing some buttons, this is far from the end of the story. Meanwhile, the planets are turning their attention to money matters, with the Sun not only joining Venus and Mercury in your financial sector on Tuesday but lucky Jupiter as well. While a lunar eclipse in your income sector over the weekend may create some financial tension it could bring unexpected opportunities.
While work and relationship matters may make it hard to balance your personal and professional lives you have the resources for win/win solutions. You'll move into the new week with the Moon in your career sector, sharpening your professional instincts in the lead up to the Sun's departure from your work sector on Tuesday, which will unleash Mars' sense of urgency and fighting spirit. This is when you begin the job of bringing things home. Yet at the same time, even before the Sun returns to your relationship sector on Tuesday, something special is developing, even though this may trigger some personal and/or relationship tension over the weekend. A lunar eclipse in your sign over the weekend reminds you of your own needs as you move into some important relationship weeks.
Where you've been working to find a balance between work and play, this becomes both easier and more important this week. The Sun's return to your work sector on Tuesday, teaming up with Venus, Mercury and Jupiter will begin the process of bringing things home. While lucky Jupiter has been in your work sector since last June and there has been continuous planetary activity here since last April, you have only now reached the point where everything until now has been leading up to and everything from now will lead on from. While this should and will eventually see work matters dominate, the fact that you're able to work smarter and manage your time, while Mars is still evoking your romantic and creative passions, will make it relatively easy to find a balance between work and play.
As the Sun returns to your romantic and creative sector on Tuesday, teaming up with not only Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication but with lucky Jupiter as well, it's with a sense that time is starting to run out and that this is something that needs to be seized. With powerful income and career forces due to come together next week and lock into place for almost the whole of June and new doors due to open on the work front next week, in turn leading to a major comeback, the playful, romantic and creative energy in the air now is all of a sudden starting to look a lot more precious. With Venus and Mercury returning to your work sector within the next 2 weeks and lucky Jupiter returning next month there's a need to find a balance between work and play while you can.
With financial tensions prevalent midweek and work/life balance tensions coming to a head over the weekend, regardless of the cosmic conditions this would have been a week for ensuring the communication lines are open. By keeping the communication lines open on the personal, family and professional fronts you'll avoid creating mountains out of molehills, sweating the small stuff or creating challenges where there are none. In every instance that there is pressure this week you'll find opportunities, with financial tension more about raising the bar on the income front and believing in yourself, with work/life balance tensions only arriving over the weekend because a lunar eclipse is likely to bring unexpected professional opportunities in an important weekend for home and family matters.
