While the second half of the year was always destined to be the busiest and most expansive on the work front and even though this doesn't begin until Friday, by Monday you have reached a tipping point where there is no turning back, with the year gaining enough unstoppable momentum. At the same time that you're becoming a lot more aware of your options across the work and career fronts you're also aware that you're no longer waiting for anything, that whatever facts, options, ideas or matters were waiting for are either already on the table or you have enough that you no longer need to wait. This is just the tipping point where the pace picks up to a point where there is no going back, with the professional gods taking another three months to fully unfold and manifest your real potential across the income, work and career fronts.
When the Moon left your career sector over the weekend this left you with your professional instincts sharp and time to process the valuable clues, hunches and insights gained, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go. In a week that is more about having your money hat on, having a sense of professional direction is everything as you move into Mercury's final days in your income sector, for combined with a smart head for money this gives you a clear sense of where to direct your time and energy, how to work smarter and pick your battles wisely. As you continue to line up for a major explosion of work opportunities and expansion in the second half of the year, more important than the details or knowing the 'when, where and how' is a sense of direction. So long as you're on the right track the professional gods will supply you with clues and information along the way.
You have a week that is going to present with one face but reveal another by the time the week is out, but one where you can't afford to jump ahead and need to take things one day at a time. Mars is in his final days in retrograde motion in your work sector as Chiron turns retrograde in your career sector on Monday, creating a temporary situation where, for just a few days, every planet across both your professional houses will be in retrograde motion at the same time, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the work and career fronts. However, this goes beyond holding the doors open to the past, with all the planets involved at a standstill, making it appear that things have become stuck or stalled. Yet while the doors will remain open to the past on the career front for the next five months, the tide turns on the work front on Thursday.
From the get go there is a need to have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground, trusting what your professional instincts, hunches and Eureka moments are telling you. On Monday, a week to the day after the second of two Full Moons in your work sector played out, the Moon returns to your career sector just as your professional needs and priorities start to crystallise. You've reached a powerful and important point of your professional year for both work and career matters, but it is less about what is or isn't being triggered or is happening and more about the awareness being gained. At this stage leave money out of the equation, only because with new doors opening on the income front in a few weeks' time the money gods will soon become involved. This is preparation for the most lucrative weeks of 2016, with a chance first to get your professional ducks in a row.
Despite the fact that a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in the early part of the week could cause a case of Mondayitis that extends for several days into the week, it comes just as you're gaining a greater sense of confidence and awareness on the work front. You're not only becoming more aware that it is about the money and what's in it for you, but that you're in a better position to achieve on both the work and career fronts. As a major alliance between income and work forces peaks on Monday the greatest gift is a sense of confidence and a belief that what's in it for you is important. While being of service and looking at what you're able to give rather than what you're able to get is always going to be the key to true success, you're waking up to the fact that you can have the best of both worlds. There will be clues midweek to unexpected career developments
While moving into the week with your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open is a given and having your professional hat on from the get go is mandatory, it won't stay that way all week. After the Sun's departure from your career sector last week Mercury is staying on for a few more days in order to tie up loose ends, allowing you to keep your head in the game and the communication lines open until he leaves on Thursday. Knowing that this will bring all the planetary activity in your career sector for the year to a close, there is a need for talks and for making smart choices, decisions and plans, but as this is just the point where the real journey begins, there is also a need to keep your mind and options open. The Moon's return over the weekend will bring a chance to regroup and look at where to from here.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, especially with the tide turning on the work front on Monday, the doors still open to the past and second chances on the income front and new doors opening on the career front. This is such an important week across the income, work and career fronts that this could be the week where the course and direction of your professional year changes and is definitely a week where there is set to be big changes across all three fronts. While the Moon will leave your work sector on Monday it will be after the last planet in direct motion here turns retrograde, ensuring you have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground as the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the work front. Have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground from the get go.
Returning to your work sector on Monday the Moon gives you an intuitive edge in the early hours of the week, something that will give this week a head start and you an advantage from the get go. However, this is also going to give you an intuitive read on the undercurrents just as a seven day alignment of work forces runs its course and at a time when there is a wealth of valuable clues, hunches, insights and Eureka moments to trigger. With the laws of synchronicity in effect on the work front and new doors opening on the career front in just a few days' time, there is a need to trust and have confidence in what your gut is telling you. You've got time to process what this might trigger, with a need to find time to hear yourself think and to simply let your thoughts and imagination run wild.
Monday not only marks the peak of a powerful alliance between income and career forces, but brings you to a tipping point in your professional year, where there is now so much momentum and support that there is no turning back. While the tide turned on the career front early last month, it is only now that you're gaining the confidence and momentum to no longer hold anything back, ready now to put everything you have into everything you do. With this comes a better understanding of what you're striving for, with your definition of professional success undergoing a transformation. However, by the time the Moon returns to your work sector midweek and especially by the time it leaves, there'll be a growing sense that the professional gods are holding some wildcards up their sleeves, with work matters in particular yet to be fully revealed.
Moving into the new working week it is more important than ever to have your head in the game from the get go, in fact this is more important this week than potentially any other week this year. While this is not the most important week of your professional year, with major career developments in the second half of the year shooting anything so far out of the water and in fact anything over the last decade, but with Mercury leaving your work sector on Thursday it's the most important for having your head in the game. Not only wrapping up his own short visit Mercury is wrapping up all the planetary activity for the year, work matters staying on track for the rest of the year is being determined by how you're able to keep your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open during his final days. Once on track it will be easy to keep things on track.
While the professional gods have the field covered from the get go, conflicting forces could create confusion, especially if you try and push on while the professional gods ask that you hold back. As the Sun spends his first full week in your work sector and with new doors already opening on the work front ahead of next week's New Moon, there is an understandable urge to make things happen and to move forward. However, with Mars in retrograde motion in your career sector until Thursday your professional focus is not only still on the rear view mirror, with the warrior planet of the cosmos holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential for a few more days, but there is a lot to be gained by holding back. While the doors will remain open to the past and second chances on the income front, Thursday is when the lights turn green across the work and career fronts.
A week on from last month's Full Moon in your career sector and while you have a better understanding of the professional dynamics in play and there have been a number of pushes and triggers, the professional gods are still holding too many wildcards up their sleeves to cement anything in concrete. Instead the professional gods prefer to stand back and let things settle this week, knowing that with new doors opening on the work front in just a few weeks' time and Mars' direct turn on Thursday putting him on track to return for a double dip visit to your career sector in early August, there are more twists and turns ahead. Instead, with the Moon returning to your income sector on Monday this is a chance to sharpen your nose for money, with income, work and career matters due to come together in a game changing way over the coming months.
