Where Mercury's position in your work sector last week gave you a chance to get your head in the game, new ideas and options on the table and to start opening your mind to new possibilities, the Sun's return over the weekend takes this to a whole new level. Yet it's the fact that Mercury had already spent a week here before the Sun returned to throw the solar spotlight on your work situation, matters and options that means you're ready for Tuesday's New Moon and the early chance this will create to draw a new line in the sand. Falling just 3 days after the Sun returned, this doesn't give you much time to line up, but with your head already in the game you should be more than ready. As most opportunities will come next month, this is the starting rather than the finishing line.
Make the most of the chance to keep things on the down low, for just weeks after a massive 9 month push on the work front ran its course there is another wave due to begin next week. With so much already in motion and plenty on your plate, before the pace once more picks up take care of any housekeeping or catching up you can do now, to ensure things are more streamlined later. For once Mercury returns to your work sector next Tuesday this will kick off another planetary push that will run through to November. There are very few times this year where you can step back, take your work hat off and watch the grass grow, with a need to seize any opportunity to cruise in the slow lane, for these moments are few and far between. In the meantime, keep your mind and options open.
A powerful start to the week requires that you're on your toes from the get go. Thanks to the Moon's visit to your income sector late last week you've got a nose for money from the get go, something that will come in handy as powerful work forces come together in the early days of the week. It's an alignment between Mars and Saturn, the first in your work sector since 1984 that brings Mars' drives, passions, competitive and fighting spirit together with Saturn's brute force, determination and power to move mountains if you have to. This comes just as Mars is on particularly good terms with career forces, creating a situation where, aware of just how many income, work and career options and support you have, it's time to draw a new line in the sand, ready to play it like you mean it.
On the income and career fronts things are looking good and especially so in the early days of the week, but there's a need to avoid over thinking things or letting things become more abstract, trusting instead your heart, instincts and a growing sense of confidence. It's an alliance between Venus and Uranus in the early days of the week that not only puts their separate income and career mandates on the same page, but sees their energies come together for a united push. Where Venus is bringing the laws of attraction into play on the income front Uranus is bringing the laws of synchronicity into play on the career front, triggering Eureka moments and serendipitous developments. With new doors opening on the work front next month the money and professional gods are already working together.
Over the weekend Pluto, the only planet in either of your professional houses, moved into his final month in retrograde motion in your work sector, which means that he's slowing down ahead of next month's U turn. This brings a need to pace yourself, work smarter and manage your time more effectively, for things will slow down even further before coming to a complete stop, in order for the tide to turn. This plays right into the hands of the money gods, for with the Sun having returned to your income sector over the weekend, Mercury a week earlier and the New Moon here on Tuesday, right now it is more about the money. While most income opportunities won't unfold until next month, with a smart head for money and new income opportunities opening up, it really is about working smarter.
After an active few weeks on the professional front, with the Moon visiting your career sector last week and a Full Moon in your work sector the week before, you have a chance to let things settle. You've reached a point in your professional year where you've done and invested all you can and it's now about letting things play out, knowing that whether you've done enough or not the time for investing everything you have is gone. It might feel like you're in limbo this week, waiting for something, but while this may present as waiting to hear news or waiting for something to click into place on the professional front, it is more likely to be about the money. For the professional gods, having done all they can to gain enough momentum, are throwing their support behind the money gods.
Over the weekend the Sun began the month long wind down of your solar year, bringing you to a point in the year where you really do need to pace yourself and the timing couldn't be better. While Venus left your career sector earlier in the month, the Moon's visit late last week has not only left you with your professional instincts sharp and some valuable clues, hunches and insights, but a chance to start tying up loose ends. After a massive 16 month push and with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion, this is a time for reflection, summing things up and understanding the journey so far. This is when the professional gods hand over to the money gods, with a very real chance to smash your way through any glass ceilings in your way. It's now more about the money.
In past years the Sun's departure from your career sector could have spelled the end of all your support for the year, but having left over the weekend it's clear that you haven't even begun to tap into your full potential. The Moon returned to your career sector just hours before the Sun left and is still here as you move into the new week, not only allowing you to begin the week with your professional instincts sharp, finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, but aware of the shift in dynamics this created. After aligning with both Venus and Jupiter after the Sun and his reality checks left, this has allowed you to tap into a bullish new sense of confidence. With luck on your side, Venus triggering opportunities and attention your way, this is just the start of a major comeback.
While Mercury returned to your career sector on the 16th August, giving you a chance to get your head in the game and around your options, it was the Sun's return over the weekend that has finally got the launch of your annual professional update underway. The Sun returns to your career sector at this time every year, throwing the solar spotlight on your professional situation, matters and options, giving you a chance to bring things up to date, ready for a fresh start. There is a sense this year that there is no mucking about with Tuesday's New Moon, just 3 days after the Sun returned, already giving things a hurry up. Yet with the biggest opportunities not unfolding until next month this is the starting rather than the finishing line, with the professional gods hurrying things up.
While the Moon's monthly visits to your career sector are always important, sharpening your professional instincts, triggering your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses and bringing some valuable clues, hunches and insights, this week's visit is a little more important than most. As the first visit since Ceres' massive 9 month visit came to an end earlier in the month and especially with so much water having passed under the bridge so far this year, this was always going to be a valuable chance to tie up loose ends. Yet when the Moon returns on Thursday and your professional instincts kick in, on your radar will be showing up a new wave due to hit early next week. What you have is a very short lull before the pace picks up again.
Hopefully you've had a chance to rest up over the weekend, for you need to be ready to hit the ground running, ready to put everything you have into everything you do from the get go. For the week begins with an alignment between Mars and Saturn, for the first time in your career sector since 1984. This is one of the major events of 2014 and with so much water having already passed under the bridge professionally, as Mars' professional passions and fighting spirit come together with Saturn's power to move mountains if you have to, this is the point for marshalling all your reserves and resources, ready to put everything you have into everything you do. This comes as Mars is on especially good terms with income forces, which could trigger income opportunities as well.
The Sun's departure from your work sector over the weekend has done nothing to slow down the momentum or take the focus off work matters, but it has changed the dynamics. With your annual review over, along with the reality checks required to create an authentic new starting point, things become a lot more abstract. This happened even before the Sun left, with the Moon returning just hours earlier to engage your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses. The Moon is still here as you move into the new week but will leave on Monday, making it important to have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground from the get go. Yet it was the Moon's alignment with Jupiter and Venus, the planets that will take it from here, that has unleashed new possibilities.
