As you move into the new week it has only been 10 days since Mercury's departure from your work sector brought 16 months of continuous focus on job matters to an end and while this has created an unstoppable amount of momentum, the swing towards new career challenges to conquer is becoming just as unstoppable. A smart and strategic approach to work matters has been replaced by an urge for change and to throw yourself into your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit with the kind of hot headed enthusiasm that borders on manic. This is being fuelled by a midweek alignment between Mars and Pluto in your career sector and while they are spending the whole of October here, as the planets of war and revolution align this creates an explosive mix. All of a sudden sitting on the fence is not an option.
Apart from leaving you with your professional instincts sharp and some valuable clues, hunches and insights to mull over, the Moon's visit to your career sector late last week has left you aware of approaching developments. With major new doors opening on the career front early next month, over two months ahead of schedule, this all of a sudden gives you something to think about, while putting a new spin on the Sun and Mercury's final days in your work sector. With the Sun leaving your work sector over the weekend and Mercury just a day later, you're in the final days of your annual review of your work situation, matters and options, with a chance to look at where to from here. While you've already had a chance to consider the implications of having lucky Jupiter on board for the next 12 months, you now have to consider new career developments around the corner.
While you will begin and end with planets in your work sector, where things stand at the start of the week is not where they'll stand at the end, with the professional gods bookending the week while giving you the majority of the week to get your bearings. With Venus leaving your work sector on Tuesday there is a need to move into the week determined to follow and trust your heart, with her job being to leave you with a clear sense of what you do and don't want moving forward. This is not the time to over think things or develop tunnel vision, for it is neither you nor Venus' business how you're going to turn desires into reality. However, this is the Sun and Mercury's business and with the Sun returning to your work sector over the weekend and Mercury a day later, this is when the more objective phase, that of walking the talk begins.
In a year that is being driven by Uranus in your career sector and Saturn in your work sector it's a given that the game will continue to change and evolve, often unexpectedly and that has been the case over the weekend. It wasn't just Ceres' return to your career sector last week and the new emphasis on embracing your sense of purpose that has changed the dynamics, but the weekend's Full Moon that not only brought professional matters to a head, but unleashed both Eureka and light bulb moments, along with surprise developments yet to be revealed. Yet it's Venus' return to your work sector on Tuesday that allows job matters to ride the wave created by the weekend's Full Moon and with your heart developing the power to move mountains if you have to, this could set the scene for some major changes across the professional landscape.
If you thought the last few weeks were busy, then you haven't met this week, with a midweek alignment between the planets of war and revolution in your work sector bringing you to the most extreme week of what is already the most extreme month of 2016 for job matters. With Mars fuelling your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit and Pluto flying the revolutionary flag as he brings a call for change, you've not only got a manically busy week on your hands, but potentially a game changing week. While the stars incline and don't control, you have a chance to ride this wave of hot headed enthusiasm and the courage to change things up. After months of playing support for income forces job matters finally get their turn, with a support crew standing by that is encouraging you to take this and run with it.
As things start to get more serious on the income front you've been able to draw on the insights gained from the Moon's visit to your work sector last week, which are already giving you a chance to start lining up in front of new doors before they open. With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses until Mars returns to your work sector next month, the Moon has become a vital link to the professional gods and the clues and insights they're able to feed you along the way. This week the Moon's return to your career sector midweek is a chance to sharpen your professional instincts and gain a more global sense of perspective, giving you access to the big picture and the timing couldn't be better. Moving through during the Sun and Mercury's final days in your income sector, this is a chance to line up your professional and income objectives.
When the Moon left your work sector over the weekend, as well as leaving you with the intuitive edge needed to move into the new week with confidence, it brought your first real evidence that the tide has turned and the challenges of the past are behind you. Moving through during Venus' final days in your income sector this has also been a chance to line up your income and work objectives and while Venus will leave on Tuesday, support between the money and professional gods will continue. It's the Moon's return to your career sector on Friday that will ensure your professional instincts are sharp as the Sun returns to your income sector, but more importantly will bring a chance to put all your income, work and career cards on the table and regroup. There is still plenty of untapped potential on the job front to be accessed and you're finally getting the key.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go, but even more when this is the tail end of the weekend's Full Moon, one that has not only brought work matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point, but triggered developments and Eureka moments that will take days, if not weeks to fully reveal themselves. Any work tension or general pressure this created over the weekend is not so much a small price to pay for the kick start this has given work matters, but something that can be used to your advantage. With both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion, but new income opportunities opening up from Tuesday, the last thing you can afford is to stagnate, with no chance of that now. This has been the shake up that job matters need.
While Ceres' departure from your work sector last week and Mercury's from your career sector the week before leaves you with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, for the first time since June 2015, it is clear that the professional gods have not gone far and continue to watch over things. At the same time that a natural current is still in effect and will remain in effect until May 2017, to keep career and professional matters on track, giving you a GPS to ensure things don't wander off course, the Moon is set to become a vital link to the professional gods. You'll have your first evidence of this when the Moon returns to your work sector on Monday and position here during the early days of the week. This comes just as you finally have a chance to hear yourself think.
You have reached a defining week in what has already become a defining professional year, one where the two different layers in effect separate. Since lucky Jupiter returned to your career sector early last month to begin your biggest and most important year for professional growth in over a decade, a year that still has nearly 12 months to run, there has been planetary activity here that is more focused on the annual update that happens at this time every year. Jupiter might be focused on the future, the big picture and the major opportunities that will open up over the coming months, but until the Sun leaves over the weekend and Mercury a day later, they're more focused on your annual update and the small and practical steps that can be taken now. By next Monday Jupiter will be on his own for the first time since arriving and the full scope of what's possible will be revealed.
There is a changing of the guard on the career front this week, one that will not only see the dynamics in play shift, but will bring you to a point in your professional year where it is finally time to tie up loose ends. The Sun's return to your career sector over the weekend will shift the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options, as happens at this time every year, but in most years this is the first chance to focus on career matters all year. That's not the case this year and with Mars' longest visit to your career sector in two decades having dominated much of the year and Venus' departure on Monday leaving you with a clear sense of what you want moving forward, the solar spotlight will reveal it's time to wrap things up. Until the weekend it will still be more about what's possible, with the job of turning desires into reality just beginning.
In a professional year that has an extreme amount of twists and turns and has played host to not only a double dip Mars visit to your career sector, but his longest in two decades, you reach yet another twist this week, one that will help bring everything together. By the time Venus returns to your career sector on Tuesday Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos will have left just 21 days earlier, able to tap back into the professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit he left you with, along with the steely sense of resolve you've developed since then. While Venus will move through relatively quickly, moving through in less than 25 days, having begun the year here and so much having been invested over the past nine months, you'll slip straight into the job of fuelling your professional confidence, raising the bar on your expectations and attracting opportunities.
