There is such a massive amount of change over the next 2 weeks that the year itself has reached a turning point. It was Saturn's direct turn over the weekend that brought a need to keep looking back over your shoulder to an end, especially where old financial matters were concerned. At the same time, with Venus having retrograded back out of your work sector over the weekend and back into a more fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, despite the fact that the wheels are turning irrevocably towards a more professionally focused state moving forward, you're evenly balanced this between the two. Even though Ceres will retrograde back into your career sector on Tuesday and Mercury will return to your work sector over the weekend the fight for balance will continue.
Saturn's direct turn in your relationship sector over the weekend couldn't have come with better timing, for with Mars not only due to leave your communication sector at the end of the week but bring all the planetary activity to an end, this is not only an opportunity for a turnaround but for a breakthrough. In the meantime, while Venus retrograded back out of a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart over the weekend there is no going back from the desires and expectations she left you with. With Mercury returning over the weekend and Jupiter returning next week to kick off your luckiest year for love and matters of the heart in over a decade, this was just a small taste of things to come. It's home and family matters that really need your focus this week.
While you've reached a good week for income and work matters, above all else and across every aspect of your life this is a week for ensuring the communication lines are open. While you'll have plenty of support over the coming months, when Jupiter leaves your communication sector next week he won't return until 2024, with the more traction you can gain now the better. With Venus in her first full week back in retrograde motion and Mars not returning to your communication sector until the end of this week, the momentum Jupiter leaves you with will be in safe hands. In the meantime with Saturn having turned direct in your work sector over the weekend and Mars leaving your income sector on Sunday they'll be working as a team all week to gain as much traction as possible on both fronts.
While everything is likely to be coming together on the income front this week, with the money gods employing all possible resources to ensuring Jupiter's last full week is well utilised, life itself is already starting to diversify. While Venus has retrograded back into your income sector to help Jupiter and income matters, Mercury is here until Saturday and Mars will return on Sunday, it was the time she has already spent in your communication sector that already has the pendulum swinging. With Ceres retrograding back into your relationship sector on Tuesday and the doors already open to second chances on the relationship front it's your relationships that will benefit from the communication support over the coming weeks. In the meantime it's time to follow your heart and your passions.
While Jupiter won't leave your sign until next week, your birthday month is still unfolding, Venus only returned over the weekend and Mars won't return until the end of this week, already there is a really strong message that it's time to wraps up things up. Jupiter returned to Leo last July to begin a yearlong mission of laying down the foundations for a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion and due to leave next week that mission is now in its last full week. While Mars will remain in your sign until late next month and Venus won't leave until November this will be more about trying up loose ends and ensuring every possible advantage is explored. The actual push that will launch you into your own future needs to happen now and all you have to do is be willing to go along for the ride.
When Venus retrograded back out of your sign over the weekend you can be forgiven for feeling cheated, though being drawn back into the hypnotic pull of the past and into a veil of romantic nostalgia wouldn't garner any complaints. Venus not only returned to the nostalgic part of your chart she has left 13 days earlier, in retrograde motion the romantic nostalgia she was evoking before returns even stronger. Just when you thought you couldn't sink any deeper into the past Ceres retrogrades back into your romantic sector on Tuesday, making this even more potent. Yet while you'll continue this dance with the past you've had a chance look to the future and with Mercury returning to your sign over the weekend and Jupiter next week it won't be long before the future comes knocking at the door.
Mars and Saturn are in their own club this week, with these two unlikely allies helping each other out. While Mars' hot headed enthusiasm doesn't usually mesh well with Saturn's pragmatic approach to things, this week it does. For having turned direct in your income sector over the weekend but due to leave 7 weeks later Saturn doesn't have much time to get things up to speed. At the same time, with Mars leaving your career sector at the end of the week his professional passions and fighting spirit are being fuelled with a new sense of urgency, making him a rebel without a cause. Saturn is able to provide the cause, namely the money, while in return gets to coattail off the professional momentum you're now able to gain. All this in an important week for personal and professional networking.
There'll be no doubt that you've wandered into the domain of the professional gods this week or at least a competitive zone. The professional gods have marshalled every possible resource to make Jupiter's last full week in your career sector count even calling Venus, who had left last month back for a double dip visit. While Mars won't return until the weekend, he'll return in time to make Jupiter's final days and last weekend count. Even the Moon will get in on the act, moving through your work sector midweek in a way that will give you an intuitive edge and a read on the doors open to second chances on the income and career fronts. For any other planet keeping the spirit of adventure alive amidst this would be a challenge, but Mars thrives on this kind of challenge.
While professional clouds are looming they temporarily dissipate, providing a window of opportunity where a sense of adventure and playfulness is able to thrive and it's a window that the stars on both fronts are going to grab with gusto. When Venus retrograded back out of your career sector over the weekend she left you with your professional desires and expectations updated, but also the seeds for some major developments. What you can't know is that from Mercury's return to your career sector on Sunday the next time you'll have no cosmic activity there will be in your May 2017. However the days of being able to keep your professional hat off are even shorter, with those days ending when the Moon returns to your work sector on Thursday. Playful and adventurous forces are set to rebel.
As he works to make the most of not only his final days in your relationship sector but all the planetary activity for the year Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is employing every trick the book. It begins with support, both from the Moon in your communication sector in the early days of the week and from Saturn, not only creating a powerful week for friendship and relationship building, but one where there is a real turning point. However the real advantage comes cloaked as a challenge, with Ceres' return to your sign on Tuesday setting the scene for some personal and/or relationship tension. This is what Mars thrives on, for in a week where the main focus is on money matters, this will ensure your relationships get the attention they need, with a breakthrough possible.
With Jupiter spending his last full week in your relationship sector, Venus having retrograded back in over the weekend, Mercury leaving and Mars returning over the weekend this was always going to be an important week for personal and professional relationship building and matters. However what you didn't count on that things would all of a sudden become a lot easier, with the personal and/or relationship tensions that have dogged things over the last few months running out of steam in the early hours of the week. There a little for all your relationships, from personal to professional, with the middle days of the week especially good for talks and communications across the board. You've reached an important week for career and income matters, with a real turnaround possible.
Two unlikely allies not only team up this week but at the best possible time, on a joint mission to ensure life doesn't become work and play and they couldn't have chosen a better or worse week, depending on which way you look at things. They couldn't have chosen a better week, for with Mars leaving a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Sunday it really is now or never and with Saturn having turned direct in an adventurous part of your chart over the weekend this really is their only chance to join forces and strike. However the timing couldn't be worse because with lucky Jupiter in his last full week in your work sector and the professional gods employing every possible resource, the battle to find a balance between work and play heats up in a major way.
