While the weekend's Full Moon may have taken the wind out of your sails, creating a languid feel that will follow you into the week, rather than try and shake this embrace it. As the week progresses while there may be some work tension, this is more because you're trying to push and hurry things when they don't need or want to. Instead there is a chance to not only make the most of Mercury's first full week in your relationship sector but Venus' final days in retrograde motion in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, before turning direct at the end of the week. While there may be some personal and/or relationship tensions in the early days of the week, by the weekend this will make way for the potential for a real breakthrough.
You have a week of real contrasts on your hands, for while Mercury's first full week in your work sector is opening the door to new work opportunities, there are some very strong counter measures in place to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. As well as the Sun and Jupiter holding strong in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, Venus and Mars are keeping the focus firmly on home and family matters, where the door will remain open to the past, second chances and a chance to make up for lost time, right through to the end of the week. In the meantime, the aftermath of the weekend's Full Moon will be felt in the early days of the week, with serendipitous forces putting you in the right place at the right time.
While the Moon will leave your career sector on Monday, work/life balance tensions won't ease back until later in the week, with your home and family lives continuing to battle to find the right balance. This is a battle that neither side can afford to win, for to be a winner there has to be a loser and both are equally important. It all comes down to balance, with Mercury's first full week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart making it easier to find a balance between work and play. The professional gods are in no hurry, knowing that while Saturn will move into his final 2 weeks in your work sector on Friday that backup is already on the way. Keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, trusting your professional instincts from the get go.
Don't be surprised by a case of Mondayitis that even the Moon's return to your career sector in the early days of the week can't shake, unable to leave the weekend spirit behind. If a lazy and languid weekend makes it hard to get going don't try to fight it, instead holding onto the adventurous early vibes in play from the get go, thanks to the weekend's Full Moon in an adventurous part of your chart. With Venus turning direct in your income sector at the end of the week and Saturn now just weeks away from his return to your work sector, life is about to become a lot busier, with the more you can pace yourself now the better. Key to having the right work/life balance is a balance between work and play. Success doesn't have to come with the sacrifices required in the past.
Moving into the week with the Moon still in your financial sector after the weekend's Full Moon will ensure your financial instincts are sharp from the get go, but any financial tension that should ease back once the Moon leaves is instead likely to escalate, peaking midweek. Yet even in the heart of this you're able to sense the support from the money gods, especially when it comes to turning financial tension into motivation. As major new doors open on the income front this is challenging old financial beliefs and attitudes. In the meantime, with Venus turning direct in your sign at the end of the week, there's a need to make the most of the final days of a nostalgic trip down memory lane. This is a chance to learn from the past before moving on, with a sense of impatience setting in.
While the weekend's Full Moon in your relationship sector will spill into the early hours of the week, the Moon's departure on Monday is unlikely to see tensions ease back, something that won't happen until later in the week. Yet this is simply your personal and relationship needs continuing a battle to find an authentic balance that works for you. While Mercury, planet of communication left your sign last week, with Saturn moving into his final 2 weeks in your communication sector on Friday you've got the means and the support to turn this into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. While Venus will turn direct in a nostalgic part of your chart at the end of the week, in the early weeks of a new solar year or not a sense of nostalgia is still strong.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, especially with Saturn moving into his final 2 weeks in your income sector on Friday. Yet with the weekend's Full Moon continuing to unfold until the Moon leaves on Monday, this is giving work matters a massive push, enough to break through a call from both the Sun and Jupiter to slow down and pace yourself. This is when a mission to wind down your old solar year and the professional gods mission to keep work matters on track reveals they're on the same page, with the professional gods favouring pacing yourself and working smarter anyway. What you have in the early days of the week is a chance to make any course adjustments, during an important few days for communication and relationship matters.
In a week dominated by Venus and Mars' alignment in your career sector, the Moon's return to your work sector in the early days of the week and a professional turnaround later in the week, it was going to take something big to find a balance between work and play. The gods just might pull it off, for with the Moon not leaving a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and wrapping up the weekend's Full Moon until Monday and even then your excuses continuing to be challenged, you're waking up to the fact that personal and/or relationship success doesn't require the sacrifices of the past. With Venus slowing down to a standstill until turning direct at the end of the week, it's essential that you pace yourself and work smarter. A rush mentality no longer works.
Another week and another standoff between your home and professional lives, this time with a Full Moon in your home and family sector still unfolding as you move into the new week, but pressure not easing back until later in the week. It's not until the second half of the week and the Moon returns to your work sector, for the first time since major new career doors opened and the last before the tide turns on the income front that you'll feel your professional confidence returning. Yet considering how huge the professional developments unfolding are destined to become, this is a valuable chance, in the early stage of a major new chapter, to ensure you're pacing yourself for the long haul. In the meantime you've reached an important week for personal and professional networking.
Despite the fact that Mercury's first full week in your career sector has brought you to the start of the most active months of the year for career and professional growth and opportunities, even this normally speedy planet is in no hurry. Normally here for just 15 days Mercury is instead slowing down and turning retrograde in a few weeks' time and not leaving until November, this gives you a chance to pace yourself, taking work/life balance seriously from the get go. Even if you wanted to, with the Sun and Jupiter challenging your excuses when it comes to embracing a sense of adventure and the Moon returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart midweek, the days of letting life become all work and no play are well and truly behind you.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your income sector and the weekend's Full Moon still playing out may appear to be a mixed blessing, but it's all positive, even the financial tension this might generate. As well as giving you a nose for money during Saturn's final weeks in your career sector, income forces are rebelling against the growing focus on financial matters. It's the Sun, moving through your financial sector that is in the firing line, first from the Moon and then through an opposition with Neptune in the early days of the week. Yet before financial tension has a chance to take hold it's transforming into motivation. In the meantime Venus' final days in retrograde motion before turning direct in your relationship sector over the weekend is a chance to recapture the past.
Moving into the week with the Moon not only in your sign but the weekend's Full Moon still unfolding brings a chance to take your power back from the get go. While personal and/or relationship tensions may linger even after the Moon leaves on Monday, not easing back until later in the week, this is having benefits on both the personal and relationship fronts. In the early weeks of your biggest relationship year in over a decade this is simply your own needs fighting back, which at the end of the day will force your relationship to become more real and authentic. In the meantime, in the lead up to Venus' direct turn in your work sector over the weekend there's a need to pace yourself, paying attention rather than taking action. Everything points to a need for confidence.
