There is no doubt that Mars' return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking late last week and the weekend's Full Moon in your communication sector have changed the dynamics of the year. While Venus' return to your career sector on Friday will ensure that you've got the support to not only bring this professional year home but keep your professional hat on and the momentum going, life can no longer be all work and no play. That is something backed by Jupiter's retrograde turn in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Tuesday, with the Moon's return the day after bringing home the importance of matters of the heart and the fact that the doors are now open to second chances. There is no longer any reason why you can't have it all.
Where Mars' return to your career sector late last week and a Full Moon in your income sector over the weekend has seen your professional year explode back into life, just when it looked like you were gliding into a well control run to the end of the year, you're not going to get away with taking it to extremes. With Jupiter not only in your home and family sector but turning retrograde on Tuesday, professional success at the expense of your home and family life won't be an option. It's the Moon's return to your home and family sector midweek and opposition with Mars that will bring clues to any work/life balance issues this might create, but also clues on how to get the balance right. Where you're going professional success doesn't require the sacrifices of the past.
Despite the fact that Saturn moves into his final 2 weeks in your work sector on Wednesday and the push to bring this working year home by Christmas is extreme, even the hard task master of the cosmos knows that working smarter is a must. As well as a need to tie up loose ends on the work front before Christmas, ahead of new career opportunities opening up in the New Year, this is about committing to work matters and an approach that will take you into next year and beyond. In the meantime, with Mars spending his first full week in an adventurous part of your chart and a sense of wanderlust and rebellion in the air, even if you wanted to you'd be hard pressed to make life all work and no play. Make the most of an extremely good week for communication and relationship matters.
With the money and professional gods working overtime this week your biggest challenge is going to be finding time for you, especially with every man and his dog seeming to want your time and your attention. Yet, with so much unfolding on the work front, you do need to keep your work hat on and with Mars spending his first full week in your financial sector and lucky Jupiter turning retrograde in your income sector on Tuesday, there's a need to keep your money hat on, but even if you wanted to there are safeguards to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play and that you remember that it's not just about the money. As Saturn moves into his final weeks in a fun, playful and romantically charged part of your chart the fun police are on patrol and they're no longer buying your excuses.
At the same time that finding a balance between work and play becomes a lot more important and impossible to avoid, there's a new balancing game to play this week, between your personal and relationship needs. Even before this solar year began, with Jupiter having returned to your sign in July, you've been on a crusade to claim your personal power back, one that with Jupiter turning retrograde on Tuesday will now stretch to include a review phase. This has put a lot of focus on your own needs, yet Mars' first full week in your relationship sector will have you suddenly having to balance everyone else's needs as well. This may come to a head as personal and/or relationship tension providing clues to any balance issues in a week that is all about finding the right balance work and play.
To say that you have reached an interesting week is an understatement, as there are some extreme contradictions that need to be catered for. It was Mars' return to your work sector last Friday, his first full week here and the momentum gained by the weekend's Full Moon in your career sector that has seen your professional year suddenly explode back into life, staying that way for the rest of the year and well into 2015. This makes it important to have your professional hat on from the get go, yet forget getting away with letting life become all work and no play. With Venus returning to a playful part of your chart on Thursday and a greater need for time to hear yourself think, working smarter and smart time management is a must. It's all about having the right work/life balance.
Despite the fact that the Moon will return to your career sector in the early days of the week, with the last visit for the year providing the professional instincts needed to make Saturn's final weeks in your income sector count and to line up for next month's new work opportunities, this is a week more designed for play than work. Not only will you move into the new week with the fallout from the weekend's Full Moon creating a case of Mondayitis, with a sense of wanderlust hard to shake, with Mars spending his first full week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart ,you're unlikely to be successful. Apart from a need to have your money hat on, with new doors not opening on the work front until the New Year the message this week is to lighten up and have fun.
While with so much unfolding on the income front there'll be a need to keep your money hat on this week, especially with the weekend's Full Moon in your financial sector not wrapping up until Monday, there isn't the urgency there may have been. This is despite the fact that with Venus leaving your income sector on Thursday, Mercury next week and the Sun just before Christmas, it might look like it's time to bring things home. The money gods are not only saving their best till last, with Uranus moving into his final 2 weeks in retrograde motion in your work sector on Monday and Jupiter turning retrograde in your career sector on Thursday, the professional gods are applying the brakes, opening the door to second chances on the work and career fronts, while taking away any urgency.
While your birthday month won't end until the 22nd December, with Venus leaving on Thursday the time to listen to and commit to what your heart is telling you it wants from the future is now. By the time Venus leaves your sign Saturn will be just 13 days away from his first visit since 1988, bringing with him the power to move mountains if you have to. This makes a lot of what you might put down to wishful thinking a lot more viable than you think, making it important to keep your expectations high. While your confidence may have taken a battering over the weekend this is a wakeup call you'll always get at some point during your birthday month, making sure you're not asleep at the wheel. In the meantime things take a turn for the better with Venus' return to your income sector on Thursday.
While your birthday month won't begin until the Sun returns to your sign on the 22nd December, with Mars having just left last Friday and Venus returning on Thursday, it's begun in all but name. However, don't be surprised if you get a few wakeup calls in the early days of the week, with the Moon pushing some buttons and challenging some of the intentions Mars left you with. This could come in the form of personal and/or relationship tensions, but if you find that others are pushing your buttons, it's more likely to be a reminder of what you're forgetting to give yourself. Once Venus returns you'll have a chance to spoil and indulge yourself a little more. While this is a week for keeping your money hat you'll find money matters in the rear view mirror and income options on the road ahead.
From out of nowhere it's likely to feel that you're suddenly alive and back in the game, though don't be surprised if it seems that everyone is suddenly annoying or demanding and that you find yourself getting irritated. This is especially so midweek, but any personal and/or relationship tensions the Moon's last visit to your relationship sector for the year cause, is more likely to be about waking you up to your own needs. In the meantime, this will draw your attention to relationship matters, just as Jupiter's retrograde turn in your relationship sector on Tuesday opens the door to second chances. Mars' first full week in your sign in nearly 2 years suddenly has you aware of and ready to fight for your own needs, with your passions and fighting spirit kicking in.
While there'll be no getting away from keeping your professional hat off this week, not with so much unfolding on the career front and Jupiter not only turning retrograde in your work sector on Tuesday but the Moon returning the next day, you'll have a chance to balance this out a little more than in previous weeks. For as well as Venus returning to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on Thursday, the Moon will make one last visit to your romantic sector and relationship sectors for the year. The Moon will visit your romantic sector in the early days of the week bringing the spirit of romance into play, while it's over the weekend that you'll have a chance to focus on your relationships, in what will be a good weekend for friendship and relationship building.
