If you thought you've been busy you haven't met this week, with a need to disregard commonsense and everything you've ever learnt about the dangers of burnout, putting everything you have into everything you do, leaving everything on the floor when it comes to work matters. There is no way that you could keep up this pace until the end of the year, but then you don't have to and all you've got to do is get through this week. This does make it important to take a moment here and there to smell the coffee, but until Mars leaves your work sector on Sunday then there'll be little time for rest or slowing down. You're in the 11th Hour of a push to get your work situation and matters up to speed, with a need to trust your professional instincts when it comes to picking your battles wisely.
As you move into the final month of your professional year first impressions will be that you're able to glide to an end and already you're able to start tying up loose ends in an unhurried way. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which way you look at it, this is not your reality and what you have is a false sense of calm, with everything changing when Mars returns to your work sector on Sunday. The 6 weeks that Mars will normally spend in your work sector every other year will always be the driven, most frenetic but also the most potentially successful in a 2 year period, with his return creating a situation where in the final weeks of the year you and your work situation will get your second wind. From the get go your professional instincts reveal what a game changer this is.
After some busy, intense and at times challenging few months on the work front things have finally run their course and you're ready to start tying up loose ends and bringing things home or at least that will be the case once Mercury leaves your work sector on Thursday. Until then you need to have your head in the game, continuing to work smarter and to use these final days to make the most of any talks, discussions or decision making or simply to get on top of your game. For once Mercury leaves the active push to get work matters up to speed and on the right track will be over and it will then become more about staying on track and keeping the momentum going. Move into the new week with your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground from the get go, trusting your gut instincts.
You have reached what is one of the most important weeks of the year on the work front and whether you were moving into the final month of the year or not, this is a week for drawing a line in the sand and to start bringing things home. While the Sun will always be in your work sector at this time of year, with Venus already been and gone and for the first time in 20 years everything needing to be wrapped up before Christmas, there is a call this year to keep it simple and make it happen. A New Moon on Tuesday creates an opportunity to draw a new line in the sand, with a chance for a fresh start. However, with comet ISON moving through your work sector at this exact time, keep your mind and your options open. It's time to get your head in the game and start tying up loose ends.
Venus, making her longest visit to your work sector in over 200 years is set to bring some exceptional opportunities into play over the coming months, but is about to lose her biggest support and she'll be working to make it count. When Venus returned to your work sector on the 5th November, for what should have been a 4 week update Mars was already in your income sector, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit and fuelling a sense of entitlement. This has made money a real motivation and key to buying into a sense that there is plenty of untapped potential on the work front, making it easier to work with the opportunities Venus is creating. Yet with Mars leaving your income sector on Sunday, this is the last week for putting your work and income objectives on the same page.
With a Full Moon in your career sector in 2 weeks time and the Moon making his last visit to your work sector for the year over the weekend, your professional year has far from run its course. With the Full Moon due to bring professional matters building behind the scenes to a head or to a tipping or turning point there's a need to keep your mind and your options open, while the weekend provides some stunning revelations on the work and income fronts as well. When the Moon returns to your work sector on Friday it will be his last visit for the year and with new doors opening in the New Year, this will be a chance to both get your bearings and line up for your new professional year. Mars' return to your income sector on Sunday and the potential this creates is the game changer.
As you move into the new week you will have a much better sense of where things stand professionally, of any work/life balance issues you're facing and work and career matters in general. From where things stand as you move into the new week compared to where they stood at the same time a week earlier, is likely to be a lot clearer and even if nothing has changed externally, in your own mind things are a lot more settled and there is a lot less doubt, but also urgency. Moving into the new week with a nose and a smart head for money will help, especially when it comes to income matters, but in general on both the work and career fronts you know what you're dealing with and also how little or much is required to keep the wheels turning. It's important to keep your eye on the big picture.
While Uranus, now the only planet active in either of your professional houses, is still in retrograde motion and won't turn direct until the 18th December, slowing things right down, there is likely to be a boost in confidence this week. It's not only the New Moon in your income sector on Tuesday and the tailwind this creates, but Mercury's return on Thursday and his smart head for money that brings both a boost in confidence and practical support. While new doors are opening on the income front the doors will remain open to second chances or even a change of mind on the work front. While it could be that this triggers work opportunities as well, the real benefit is the confidence and a chance to benefit from the hard work invested in the past or other forms of validation.
Regardless of how many days or weeks your professional year has to run, as far as the cosmic push to not only bring your professional year home but get your professional game as a whole up to speed and on the right track goes, this is the final week. For when Mars leaves your career sector on Sunday, not only won't he be back until 2015, there'll be no planetary activity in either of your professional houses until the Sun returns to your work sector in April. Yet not due to leave until Sunday, Mars is fuelling your professional passions and fighting spirit with a sense of urgency that will provide you with more than enough momentum to keep you going long after he's gone. In the final days you'll even have a nose for money, making it easier to pick your battles wisely.
Keep a fairly low profile this week, keeping your mind and your options open but without being in a hurry to take action. While moving into the final month of the year may bring a need to start wrapping things up, the real push won't come until the end of the week and when it does thoughts of wrapping anything up will go out the window. Mars' return to your career sector on Sunday is the game changer, but as his professional passions and fighting spirit kick in it won't be to bring your professional year home, but instead to completely revolutionise your professional game over the coming 8 months, as he makes his longest visit in decades. Until then take during the week to listen to your professional instincts and to redefine your professional success before the maelstrom hits.
As you move into the new week the push to bring your professional year home is almost over, but not in a way that is going to see anything close down or cut off. In his final days in your career sector Mercury is keeping your head in the game, working with you to make the final choices, decisions and plans that will keep your professional game on the track you want it to continue on, after which it will become more about staying on track. You will also move into the new week with the Moon in your career sector and while he'll leave on Monday, like a bell that can't be unrung the professional instincts, clues, hunches and insights this leaves you with will be invaluable in tying up loose ends. Move into the new week with your finger on the pulse, ear to the ground and head in the game.
This is without a doubt one of the most important weeks of your professional year, more so because it's likely to determine the course of the next 12 months. It's Tuesday's New Moon in your career sector that creates an opportunity to draw a new line in the sand, with Mercury's return on Thursday bringing a chance to get your head in the game and to start tying up loose ends. This is when you're setting your professional objectives, course and agenda for the next 12 months, a year that will include plenty of income opportunities but also your luckiest year for work opportunities in over a decade which kicks in next July. This is as much about bringing your current professional year home as it is about setting your professional game on the course you want it to continue on.
