While this is an important week for income, work and career matters, it's in a low key and subtle way that is more likely to be internalised and triggered by anything happening around you, though this will have implications later down the line. The main event is the lead up to Ceres' departure from your career sector on Saturday, putting on hold what has been a 4 month mission to redefine your professional needs and priorities and in fact your whole definition of success. Ceres will return for a double dip visit in August, but her final days here and departure over the long weekend will give you a chance to step back and let things settle and run their course. Support Ceres gets in her final days from income and work forces will give your professional and financial confidence a boost.
This is a week where you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, especially as there is not only a dearth of professional activity, but a short working week and with a lot of focus on work/life balance all signs indicate about as low key a week as you could possibly get, just right to start looking forward to a long, lazy weekend. That's not what you'll get, with things changing dramatically over the weekend, the very time when you should be taking your professional hat off. It all takes place over a 12 hour period, beginning with Ceres' return to your career sector on Saturday and a total lunar eclipse in your work sector just hours later, suddenly bringing your professional year back into life after things eased back last month. This opens the door to some lucrative professional months.
While you'll need to move into the week with your professional hat on, by midweek and definitely by the time the long weekend comes along there'll finally be a case to ease back. In fact, a total lunar eclipse in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart will be just what the doctor ordered, with the push to get your new professional year up to speed and on the right track coming to an end on Tuesday. This will give you a few days to tie up loose ends and get your bearings, before taking some much needed time off. Until Mercury leaves your career sector on Tuesday there's a need to keep your head in the game, remaining as mentally focused. If there are decisions or plans to be made or talks to have do so early in the week, keeping your head in the game.
The professional gods are switching the players around this week, taking one player off the field but not before first bringing in a replacement, one that will change the whole timbre of the game. The player leaving the field is Mars, whose departure on Wednesday will take away a lot of the urgency and warrior energy, while leaving you with the professional passions and fighting spirit that will keep you motivated until he returns in 2017. Mars' replacement is Mercury, who returning on Tuesday will bring a more strategic game plan into play, working with the Sun to begin the process of bringing this annual update home. The Moon's position in your income sector in the early days of the week will ensure you have a nose for money as your professional game becomes more strategic.
While Ceres might be leaving your work sector over the weekend and had this happened a few weeks ago, this doesn't mean you're likely to be successful in keeping your professional hat off over the long weekend. Yet at this point none of the planets involved are focused on mundane professional matters and more on the abstract, with Ceres here to help redefine your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and/or a sense of purpose. That help comes from Venus, who moving through your career sector is here to fuel your professional desires and expectations long before your annual professional review begins, on the 20th April. Mars' return to your career sector on Wednesday will fuel your professional passions, confidence and fighting spirit.
What you have is a week that not only changes its colour and stripes, but the dynamics of your professional year. Since Mercury's departure from your work sector on the 13th March you've had no planets in either of your professional houses and with the Sun not returning to your career sector until later next month, this is the point in your professional year when things ease back. There should be no more planets in your work sector until next January and with the first of two short working weeks and a long weekend, you'll be looking forward to taking your professional hat off. Over the weekend everything changes, with Ceres' return to your work sector and a lunar eclipse in your income sector bringing income matters back in the game, ahead of Venus return to your career sector next week.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your career sector over the weekend you're able to move into the new week with your professional instincts sharp, finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. This is a good balance for Mercury's intellectual savvy and need to have your head in the game, especially on the work front. You're able to relax back once the week is on track, but with Mercury leaving your work sector on Tuesday, Monday is all about having your head in the game, your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. Having the Moon move through your career sector so recently this has not only helped to make Mercury's final hours more effective, but has left you with an intuitive read on the big picture and what lies ahead. You'll have a chance to take your work hat off over the long weekend.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your career sector will always be an advantage, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp and you have an intuitive edge from the get go, but especially this week. This is the Moon's last visit to your career sector while lucky Jupiter is in retrograde motion, with their alignment on Monday creating some lucky hunches that will come with 20/20 hindsight. This will also put the Moon here as Mercury returns to your work sector on Tuesday and in the lead up to Mars' departure on Wednesday, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp at what is a critical turning point in a thrust to get work matters up to speed. This is when Mercury's intellectually savvy and strategic approach takes over from Mars' bullish approach to giving everything a go.
This may be a short working week but the professional gods are managing to pack a lot into it, most of which will not so much be over by the time the long weekend comes along, but at a point where with everything out in the open you'll have a chance to let things settle. This is a good week for income, work or career matters and especially where they come together. Until Ceres leaves your income sector on Saturday she's got the support of fellow goddess of the solar system Venus, who on her own in your work sector is working to update your desires and expectations on the work front, as the same is happening on the income front. Mars' return to your work sector and the Moon's to your career sector on Wednesday will see your drives, passions, fighting and competitive spirit kick in.
This is a week that is set to completely take you off guard, appearing as a very typical, if not low key professional week. With a short working week, a long weekend and the Sun not due to reach your work sector until later next month, there is nothing to suggest that by the end of the week everything will change. While Venus won't return to your work sector until later next week, almost 6 weeks before the Sun was due to kick things off, by then Ceres' return to your income sector on Saturday and a total lunar eclipse in your career sector just hours later will kick your professional game into high gear, for the first time this year. With income matters unfolding anything the weekend's lunar eclipse in your career sector triggers will be picked up by next week's work developments.
Because of the Moon's visit to your work sector over the weekend you're not only able to move into the new week with your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, with your instincts engaged, but you've got a sense of what lies ahead. While the Moon will return once more before Venus returns to your work sector in early May, already you've been left with the clues and hunches that are pointing things in the direction and onto the path that opportunities will soon cross. Coming during Mercury's final hours in your income sector a smart head for money and an intuitive read on work matters will give you a better sense of income and work matters, especially when they come together. Pack this into a short working week, ready to take your money and professional hats off over the long weekend.
The Moon's position in your work sector as you move into the new week ensures your instincts are sharp, you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the get go. This is important when you consider that this is not only the Moon's last visit while lucky Jupiter is in retrograde motion, but the only visit while the doors are still open to second chances and untapped potential on the work and career fronts, with your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses coming with 20/20 hindsight. With the Moon not leaving your work sector until Wednesday this will ensure you've got your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground when Mercury returns to your income sector on Tuesday and in the lead up to Mars' departure on Wednesday, bringing income, work and career matters together.
