With Venus having already left your sign by the time your birthday month and new solar year began and Mars leaving midweek, chances are you've already got a sense of what you want from the coming year and of what excites and motivates you. Now all you have to do is wait for life to catch up with a sense of what's possible. In the meantime, Mars will join Venus in your income sector, just in time to make the most of Ceres' final days in your career sector and take advantage of the Moon's return to your work sector midweek. In fact, it's from Wednesday to Friday that income, work and career options will be laid out so clearly that this can't help but boost your financial and professional confidence. The weekend's lunar eclipse will bring the right wakeup calls at the right time.
With a short working week and a long weekend it should be a case of keeping your professional hat on during the first four days, then taking time out over the weekend to have fun or focus on things close to home. However, the stars have things around the other way, with the Moon putting the focus on home and family matters in the early days and then bringing some fun, playful and romantically charged lunar vibes into play midweek. Over the weekend the professional gods will have their turn, in a way that will not only require you to keep your professional hat on but will change the dynamics of your professional year. Ceres' return to your career sector just as the weekend's lunar eclipse in your work sector is building will see your professional year game surge back into life.
With Jupiter spending his last full week in retrograde motion and Mars joining Venus in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart midweek the long weekend can't come soon enough. You'll need to keep your professional hat on and your head in the game in the early days of the week, with Mercury's final days in your career sector all about tying up loose ends and putting things on the track they'll continue on. Once Mercury leaves on Tuesday there's a chance to scale things back. Just in case you were thinking of keeping your professional hat on over the long weekend there are measures to ensure that doesn't happen, including Ceres' return to an adventurous part of your chart on Saturday and a total lunar eclipse in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart.
While you'll need to keep your professional hat on during the short working week, as the week progresses the dynamics will change, to a point where you can start scaling things back. As you move into a new week you're still likely to feel the pressure, with Mars' final days in your career sector not only fuelling your professional passions and fighting spirit, but a push to get things moving. Mercury's return on Tuesday, during Mars' last full day will see a frenetic warrior energy replaced by a smart and more logical presence. You should notice the pressure to be on top of your game 24/7 drop midweek, with the long weekend not only providing an opportunity to find a better work/life balance, but a total lunar eclipse in your home and family sector making sure that happens.
There is a battle being waged this week between keeping a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in play and your professional hat on at the same time, something that in a short working week and a long weekend is something that shouldn't be seen as a challenge, just as a fact. It's not about keeping your professional hat on or embracing a sense of adventure, for you need to do both. While Mars will leave an adventurous part of your chart on Wednesday, he'll not only leave you with a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences, but more than enough support to keep this alive and with a long weekend coming up, plenty of opportunities. Mars' teaming up with Venus in your career sector will fuel your professional desires, passions and fighting spirit.
You've got a fairly deceptive week on your hands, for with a short working week, a long weekend ahead, all the planetary activity in your work sector having wrapped up on the 13th March and the Sun not due in your career sector until later next month, everything you've come to know so far suggests a welcome chance to take a break. Over the long weekend everything changes, beginning with Ceres' return to your work sector on Saturday, returning for her first visit in 4 years, just 22 days after things supposedly wrapped up for the year. A total lunar eclipse in your income sector will just hours later unleash untapped income potential and with Venus returning to your work sector next week you're all of a sudden back in the game. Expect the long week to be extremely motivating.
A week that has a lot of focus on financial and relationship matters also has a chance to finally take your work hat off and over the long weekend in particular, start making up for lost time. It's not until Mercury leaves your work sector on Tuesday that a busy 3 months aimed at getting your new working year up to speed ends finally allows you to ease back. It's then that Mercury, planet of communication turns his focus to your communications and in particular to getting the communication lines open, freeing Mars up to shift his focus to helping Venus fuel your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit. It's over the weekend that two events ask 'but what about me', especially when it comes to bringing the fun back into life and putting yourself back on your own priority list.
While there'll be a need to keep your professional hat on this week and especially in the early days of the week, by the weekend there will be a call to pull back, catching your breath over the long weekend ahead of next week's professional turnaround. The Moon will set the tone, making it important to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, trusting what your gut is telling you. You'll begin with the Moon not only in your career sector but aligned with Jupiter on Monday, for the last time before his direct turn next week creates a turnaround. By the weekend a total lunar eclipse in a reflective part of your chart will pull the rug out from under you if you try and do anything too strenuous, providing not an excuse to take time off and recharge your batteries, but a demand.
The battle to find a balance between work and play heats up this week, especially towards the later days of a short working week. It begins with Mars' return to your work sector on Wednesday, where teaming up with Venus he'll fuel your drives, passions, fighting and competitive spirit, not just for the next few days but for the next 6 weeks. The Moon's return to your career sector on the same day will see your professional instincts kick in during Ceres' final days in your income sector. Between Wednesday and Saturday income, work and career forces will be on the same page at the same time, with some real insight and motivation to be gained. With the Sun in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and your excuses will be challenged over the long weekend.
While the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on home and family matters it's during the early days of the week that you'll not only be more motivated, but you'll have a better sense of what you're fighting for. Mercury's return on Wednesday will bring a chance to get your head in the game, communication lines open and ideas on the table, ready to walk the talk. The focus will always be on home and family matters at this time of year and with Mars joining Venus in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and a long weekend ahead, the timing couldn't be better, especially with no planets in either of your professional houses. Except the weekend is when the professional gods are mounting a major comeback, with income and career forces springing back to life.
Apart from a chance to tie up loose ends on the income front before Mercury leaves your income sector on Tuesday, making it important to work with his smart head for money to come away with your head in the game and a game plan to work to, the focus this week is on communication and home and family matters, with differing fortunes as the week progresses. The Moon's position in your relationship sector in the early days of Jupiter's last full week in retrograde motion plays right into the hands of communication forces, with Mercury joining the Sun in your communication sector on Wednesday. With the doors open to second chances this will bring a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice, with a communication breakthrough possible. Expect some adventurous surprises over the weekend.
While the Sun left your sign on the 21st March the launch of your new solar year isn't over until Mercury, of communication and smart thinking leaves. Before leaving your sign on Tuesday smart, intellectually savvy and articulate Mercury will be doing his best to ensure you have your head in the game, communication lines open and ideas on the table, for this is the point where the course your new solar year will take will be set, not so much in stone but in your own mind. Mercury will put his resources behind income forces, taking over from Mars by turning motivation into a more strategic game, as a smart head for money kicks in. This is a chance to regroup and over the long weekend take some quality time out, with the tide turning on the work front next week.
