Across the board the gods are doing a lot of pushing and shoving at and while this is creating some pressure and the weekend may have seen work/life balance tensions come to a head, there's a need to trust that this is ultimately to your advantage. Where a push to plant as much income potential as possible ended last week the professional gods are now lining up for huge developments on the work front, developments which will kick off your luckiest, busiest and potentially lucrative year for work opportunities in over a decade. While this won't begin until July, the Moon's return in the early days of the week will provide some valuable clues, hunches and insights, with a chance to start lining up at the right doors before they open and to get a better sense of how you can pace yourself.
Any week that begins with an alliance of income, work and career forces will be a good one, especially with everything starting to come together on the income front. While this is the time of year when the money gods will always put the spotlight on your income situation, matters and options and this year there are even more resources to work with, this is not usually a time in the year when the professional gods are particularly active. Yet it's not only an alliance between work and career forces that put you in the perfect professional position, but their alliance with Mars in your income sector that creates the potential for a real breakthrough. A clearer sense of direction on the work front and redefining your definition of success helps define what you're fighting for.
There should be a quiet sense of confidence across the income, work and career fronts this week, even if it's a sense of anticipation as you sense that the money and professional gods are not only working together, but are preparing for something. By Monday, Saturn will be just 3 weeks away from retrograding back into your career sector and with Neptune already slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn in your work sector just days earlier, the professional gods are getting ready to throw the doors open to second chances. Yet that on its own might be an advantage, but it's the fact that with Venus already in your income sector and more developments later next month, new doors are already opening on the income front that are more than ready to take advantage of this.
While there is a lot more stability and it's more about keeping your professional year on track, with Saturn now in his final weeks in your work sector, the work pace is getting ready to drop back even further. Even now, in retrograde motion Saturn is focused more on giving you time to work behind the scenes, especially on the things that will bear fruit financially over the coming months. For while the professional gods are getting ready to take a back seat and next week's Full Moon in your work sector is giving things one last push, they are getting ready to support the money gods when the focus shifts to income matters from later next week. The professional gods have reached a point where, having done all they can it will then become more about the money, but you're not quite there yet.
While it may seem that Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector has received a double blow, it was more a case of the professional gods applying the emergency brakes. It was a combination of the Sun leaving your career sector last Thursday, wrapping up the push to get your new professional year up to speed but also taking away the support for work forces, coupled with an opposition with Venus over the weekend that may appear to have put a spoke in your wheels, but necessarily so. In retrograde motion Pluto needs you to slow down and spend time reviewing and revising your options, something that wasn't possible while career forces were riding high. The gods had to slow things down, with a chance to reconsider your work options and look more at where the money is.
With the Sun in his first full week in your career sector and Mercury his first in retrograde motion this was always going to be a professionally focused week, but also a confusing one. For with Mercury in retrograde motion there's a need to slow down and spend time at the rear view mirror or at the very least measuring twice and cutting once. Yet with Mars fuelling your professional passions and fighting spirit with a sense of urgency, he doesn't have time for navel gazing. Yet it's an alliance between income, work and career forces that peaks on Monday that will allow you to see the big picture, which means factoring in the work/life balance issues that have come to a head. Soon they will no longer be a problem, yet while there is still some tension there's a chance to work smarter.
While Venus is not due to leave your career sector until next week she'll be gone by the time Saturn retrogrades back into your income sector on the 15th June and by the time that old doors also open on the work front next month. However she doesn't have to be around to know what's coming, which is why the professional desires and expectations she's evoking and fuelling now come with some fairly high expectations. Venus is asking you to set the bar on what she knows is coming and that not only includes the opening of old doors on the work and income fronts, but a huge amount of resources moving through your career sector over the coming months. What hasn't been possible so far this year will fall into place naturally over the coming months. For now choose to trust and follow your heart.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp from the get go. Yet while the Moon will leave on Monday, as well as leaving you with the professional instincts and some valuable clues, hunches and insights this will leave you with a sense of anticipation and a sense that something is about to shift. For as the Moon's last visit before Venus not only returns to your career sector later next week but teams up with lucky Jupiter to start bringing things home, the professional gods will use this as a chance to start lining up at the right doors before they open. This comes just as Saturn moves into his final 3 weeks in your income sector, turning any financial tension into motivation.
The professional gods aren't quite ready to let things go off the boil just yet, even though they know that you do need time to let things settle. It was the Sun's departure from your work sector on Thursday that not only brought his own month long visit to an end, but a busy few months that saw a parade of planets move through, all contributing to putting things on the course they will continue on. However, the Moon's return to your career sector on Monday and position here in the early days of the week suggests that it's not time to take your professional hat off just yet, especially as this will bring clues to bigger and more game changing developments on the career front as early as mid July. This will bring a call to tie up loose ends on the work front, ready for the next chapter.
Your week gets off to the best possible start, with an alliance between income, work and career forces that has been building since Easter reaching a peak as things come together. This comes just as work matters take a complicated turn, with the Sun's first full week in your work sector putting the focus on the road ahead, while Mars' work drives, passions, fighting and competitive spirit whip up a sense of impatience, at the same time that Mercury's first full week in retrograde motion has put the handbrake on things. It's not only a chance to put income, work and career matters on the same page that puts things into perspective, but the means to look at things through foresight and hindsight. There'll be times when you do need to push on and times when you need to hold back.
There is a new sense of anticipation in the air as Saturn slowly inches his way back towards your career sector, but while his double dip visit doesn't begin until the 15th June new doors are already opening on the work front. As she spends her last full week in your work sector Venus knows that old doors are due to reopen on the career front just days after she leaves and on the income front as well, which is why your financial and professional confidence is high. The Moon's return to your career sector over the weekend, for the last time before Saturn returns, the only time while Venus is in your work sector and for the last time before the doors open to second chances on the income front will draw all the different strands on the income, work and career fronts together.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, ensuring that you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the get go. This week this is even more important and for a number of reasons. The first reason is that this provides some clarity after work/life balance tensions once more came to a head last week and as they're once more easing back, able to see this as a call to work smarter. The other reason, which puts even more weight on the first reason, is that the Moon's last visit before Venus' return later next week will act as a trigger for some major developments and some of the busiest months of the year. This comes just as Saturn moves into his final 3 weeks in your career sector, with pacing yourself essential.
