There are a lot of big changes in the air this week, but the most significant for you has been Mars' return to your career sector over the weekend. This is Mars, your ruling planet's first visit since late 2012 and teaming up with Pluto this puts the planets of war and revolution on the same team for the first time in 2 years. While your annual professional update isn't scheduled to begin until just before Christmas and will run into the early weeks of 2015 this year things are kicking off early, with some real professional momentum able to be gained. At the same time things are starting to come together on the financial front, while there are moves afoot to ensure your relationships continue to remain a priority and that a sense of adventure isn't lost. Life is starting to get busy.
There is a new sense of adventure in the air this week that is going to put everything else into perspective, changing the filter that you see life through. It was Mars' return to your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery over the weekend that may create a case of Mondayitis as you move into the new week, with Monday being the first full day of a new mission to fuel a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences. This comes as you move into one of the most important weeks of the year for relationship matters and thanks to last Friday's solar eclipse there's a call for a fresh start, as you begin to tie up loose ends on the work front. As well as a reminder that it's all about the journey there's also a reminder that life can't be all work and no play.
While there are a lot of big shifts this week, with most of the changes having occurred over the weekend, nothing new has come into play. What has changed are the dynamics and intensity of things already in play. As an example, with Pluto in your financial sector since 2008 you'll always have your money hat on, but Mars' return over the weekend has fired up your financial passions and fighting spirit, as well as bringing a new call for action. At the same time while Saturn has been taking work matters a journey for the last 2 years, it was the Sun and Venus' return to your work sector last Friday that brings a new sense of urgency and importance. Even matters of the heart and your relationships, that saw a lot of the intense focus on them ease back, have retained more than enough support.
While Mars' return to your work sector over the weekend has taken away a lot of the urgent and manic rush on the work front, there are forces in play to ensure you don't drop the ball. This allows you to put work matters on a more manageable path, giving you time to consider your priorities before the pace picks up again in mid November. In the meantime there is an all out effort this week to find a balance between work and play, with matters of the heart fast becoming a priority. Yet it's your relationships that have also received a major boost, thanks to Mars' return to your relationship sector over the weekend. You'll get a sense of what impact this will have on your relationships when the Moon visits midweek, fuelling your emotional responses, passions and fighting spirit.
While the Moon's position in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart in the early days of the week will make a vain attempt to keep Mars' romantic passions and fighting spirit in play, you've got a real battle on your hands. For while a playful spirit will not only remain important, but thanks to Ceres' return to your romantic and creative sector on Tuesday this will become an important need, the pace picks up dramatically on the work front this week. Monday is Mars' warrior planet of the cosmos first full day back in your work sector and between now and early December will work with Pluto, planet of change and revolution to really heat things up and get things moving. It's up to you to police the right balance between work and play, a balance that works for you.
At the same time that you're tying up loose ends on the income front, with this an important week for pay talks, discussions, working on a game plan or just getting your head in the game, working with Mercury's smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight, you're also preparing for the ongoing journey. It was last week that the Sun and Venus both left your income sector and with the business end of getting things up to speed over it's now more about the details. In the meantime you've reached an important week for both communication and relationship matters, but especially where they come together. After last Friday's solar eclipse in your communication sector there's a chance for new beginnings, while the doors remain open to the past and second chances on the relationship front.
There is a huge amount of focus on income matters this week, thanks to the Sun and Venus' return to your income sector last Friday and the solar eclipse on the same day, which drew a major new line in the sand. While the Moon has moved on and Mercury, who will bring the smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight needed to bring things home won't return until the end of the week, what you've had a chance to do is draw a line in the sand, putting you in the end game. While you have until Christmas Eve to bring things home already you're setting your priorities and expectations for months, years and decades to come. You've also reached an important week for home and family matters, with communication essential. Something special is developing on the communication and relationship fronts.
Your birthday month and new solar year got off with a bang when the Sun not only returned to your sign last Friday, but a solar eclipse just hours later drew a major new line in the sand. By coincidence the same day you moved into this new solar year you also moved into Saturn's final 2 months in your sign and as a journey that began back in 2012 moved into the home straight. This raises the bar and your expectations for the coming year, for you're not just making a commitment to the year ahead, but the rest of your life. While Saturn will return to your sign for a few months in mid 2015 to tie up loose ends, you're in the final months a period of laying down the foundations that the next 30 years of life will rest on. Your heart is having a big say in what you want the future to hold.
While you're in the early days of the month long wind down of your solar year, chances are it's likely to feel like you've already opened your birthday presents and know what's inside, leaving only the mechanics or getting to a point where you're able to officially open them. Mars only left your sign on Sunday, so even before you began to wind down this current solar year and started to line up for a new solar year that begins next month, you've already had a chance to establish what excites you, your passions and your fighting spirit. It's Ceres' return to your sign on Tuesday that gives you a chance to take this to a deeper level, looking at your real needs and priorities across all the currencies in your life. In the meantime it's time to smash some glass ceilings on the income front.
The month long wind down for your current solar year won't even begin until later next month and with the Sun not returning to your sign until just before Christmas, you're about 2 months too early to start opening new doors and looking to the future, yet that's exactly what you're doing this week. What is going to make this such a game changer is that your mood is likely to have literally shifted overnight, having come to the end of last week exhausted, spent and wanting nothing more over the weekend than to put out the 'do not disturb' sign. Yet Monday morning is likely to find you invigorated and ready for battle as Mars spends his first full day in your sign. It's time to tie up loose ends on the career front, in what is an important week for personal and professional networking.
While there's been little chance to take your professional hat off with Saturn in your career sector since 2012, things became a lot more urgent when the Sun, Venus and Moon not only returned last Friday but triggered a solar eclipse. This has drawn a new line in the sand and while you'll need to wait for Mercury's return later in the week to get your head in the game, this brings you to the point where everything until now has been leading up and everything from now will lead on from. With Saturn now in his final 2 months in your career sector the focus is on bringing things home and putting your professional game on the track you want things to continue one. However life won't be all work and no play, with something special developing on the social and adventurous fronts.
While Mars' departure from your career sector over the weekend has taken the wind out of your sails there's no danger of losing your professional edge anytime soon. For one thing you'll have the Moon in your career sector during the early days of the week, keeping your professional instincts sharp and eye on the ball as Ceres returns on Tuesday to begin a 3 month mission to redefine your definition of success, something that is critically important considering the major developments over the coming months. In the meantime this will see any professional urgency scale back, allowing you to make the most of what is likely to be a groundbreaking week for personal and professional networking and an exceptional week for keeping the spirit of adventure that came into play over the weekend alive.
