Expect a week that might seem slow or even stalled at times, but a week that is set to have game changing consequences. To begin with you might find it hard to focus, as Chiron joins dreamy Neptune in retrograde motion in an already dreamy part of your chart. Ironically this comes just as the congestion surrounding work matters clears and busy work forces are set to take off, making those moments where you can escape into your daydreams even more special. With Mars turning direct in your financial sector on Thursday another planet is coming to a complete standstill, this time giving you a chance to put money matters on hold as you take one last look back through the rear view mirror, with a view at tapping into old financial passions and your old fighting spirit. It is Mars' direct turn that marks a turning point for financial and money matters.
The communication and relationship gods are working together to make this an extremely special week on both fronts, leading to what could be a real turnaround on Thursday and the days and weeks following. With the Sun spending his first and Venus her second week in your communication sector the focus was always going to be on communication and on having the communication lines open this week, but with Mars in his final days in retrograde motion in your relationship sector this is where their focus will be drawn. While the doors are open to the past, this is a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. However, it's on Thursday, just 14 minutes before Mars' direct turn in your relationship sector that Mercury, planet of communication becomes engaged, making the turnaround even more pronounced.
You have reached an exceptional and even game changing week across the income, work and career fronts, but a week where you will need to take things one day at a time, with the conditions changing from day to day. The week begins with Chiron's retrograde turn in your career sector, putting all planets here in retrograde motion, just as Mars' final days in retrograde motion in your work sector is holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential there as well. Yet while the professional gods will start the week focused on the past, Mars' direct turn on Thursday and Mercury's return to your income sector just minutes earlier will see the tide turn on the work front, just as new doors open on the income front. However, those doors opened last week, with Mercury's return simply giving you the smart head for money needed to seize the moment.
While the Moon's return to your career sector in the early days of the week will bring a chance to get your professional bearings a week on from a Full Moon in your work sector, for the most part the professional and money gods stand back. With July destined to be a game changing month across the income, work and career fronts there is a chance to focus this week more on getting your personal bearings ahead of next week's New Moon. This will mark the point in your birthday month where you need to be ready to commit to this new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, but don't be surprised if it's not until the weekend that you'll be ready to finally shake the lethargy of the past off you. Until then you're still being torn between forces that want you to move on and those that want you to hold back.
A sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in the early days of the week belies what an important week this is across the income, work and career fronts, with some surprising revelations possible. As income and work forces regroup, the Moon's return to your career sector and the professional instincts that kick in midweek should be more a reinforcement, but are likely to suggest that the professional gods still have some wildcards up their sleeves. Yet while you start to gather clues to income, work and career developments ahead there is a lack of urgency, with the first full week of the month long wind down of your old solar year requiring a lot more time spent in life's slow lane, with time to hear yourself think. As the week progresses you may even find that you start to feel pressured if life gets too busy, making it important to work smarter.
The different factions in play across the communication, relationship and friendship fronts work together this week, playing their parts so well. On Monday, just 13 days after Neptune's retrograde turn in your relationship sector Chiron follows suit, with the planet of healing opening the door to the past and second chances, in a healing and cathartic way. With support from the Sun and Venus in your friendship sector this was always going to lend itself to an important week for friendship and relationship building, with the element of fate and the laws of attraction and synchronicity even setting the scene for some serendipitous moments and/or encounters. However, what turns this into something a lot more special is that this comes during Mars' final days in retrograde motion in your communication sector, with a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
With the Sun spending his first full week in your career sector and due to spend the first three weeks of July here as well, this is always the time of year when the solar spotlight is on your career and professional situation, matters and options, with support this week that creates a special week across the income, work and career fronts. While the doors will continue to open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the work front, a turnaround on the income front on Thursday leaves the doors open to profiting from the past, while ushering in the potential for new opportunities. Forces across the income, work and career fronts take up their positions this week that they'll maintain over the coming weeks. In the meantime, you've reached an important week for relationship building, mainly due to the communication breakthroughs now possible.
Where there may be some balance issues in the early part of the week, as work and playful forces battle for your attention, this will seem to ease the further in to the week you go. Don't be fooled, this is not a concession on either part and over the coming weeks the battle to find a balance between work and play is set to rage and become a lot more fiery. What you have, in the early part of the week in particular is a taste of things to come, with a need to go into this with a belief that you can have it all. In the meantime, while the professional gods will stand back and wait their turn they'll be back in earnest from the 12th July. In the meantime, there is a sense of playfulness and adventure in the air this week that needs to be embraced, especially if there is to be any hope of maintaining a balance between work and play over the coming months.
As your professional year starts to take off, with signs this week that career matters are coming unstuck and that even on the work front the professional gods may have some wildcards up their sleeves, there are moves afoot to make this as balanced as possible. Both home and playful forces are doing their best to create the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play, but they'll only be as successful as you believe they can be. As you steer down the barrel of the most potentially successful months of this professional year you've got to believe that you can have it all. You have also reached an important week for financial matters, with your annual financial review underway, while income forces make it clear that they're not about to be sidelined just because it's time to take care of any financial housekeeping.
With the solar spotlight always on your relationships at this time of year, as the Sun spends his first full week in your relationship sector you have the right mix of support and wakeup calls. With Venus on board you're already getting a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but while personal and/or relationship tensions could start to rise later in the week, this is also when support from the communication gods kicks in. With both planets in your communication sector in retrograde motion by Monday and support between the communication and relationship gods strengthening, this brings a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. It is Mercury, planet of communication's return to your relationship sector on Thursday, just as tensions are rising, that creates the potential for a breakthrough.
With the Sun spending his first full week in your work sector and Mars turning direct in your career sector on Thursday it's the professional gods that have your attention this week, but in a way that is likely to change and evolve as the week progresses. In Mars' final days in retrograde motion he's come to a standstill, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential just as old doors are opening on the income front as well. As much as work forces might want to move on, with a New Moon in your work sector next Monday and Mars turning direct on Thursday, time spent waiting gives you more time to consider your options. It is on Thursday that the gods abandon any effort to maintain a balance between work and play, something you'll need to take responsibility for.
There is a false sense of security this week, especially when it comes to a battle to find and maintain the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play. A week on from last week's Full Moon in your career sector work/life balance tensions are already easing and will ease right back when Mercury leaves your home and family sector on Thursday, the point where home and family matters also lose their advocate. At this stage, as the Sun spends his first full week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, there is no real competition from the professional gods, with the busiest months of 2016 not beginning until the 12th July. With life set to become a lot busier in July and a game changing month across the income, work and career fronts, the work required to ensure you have the right work/life balance needs to happen now.
