The professional gods stand back and play a more supporting role this week, as things start to come together on the income front. Now in his second full week in direct motion in your work sector Jupiter is helping out to slowly ease things up on the work front, with the current now flowing in the right direction and the speed gradually picking up. With Pluto remaining in retrograde motion in your career sector until September you'll benefit from the fact that this will keep the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential, while giving you 20/20 hindsight to draw on. The Moon's return to your career sector on Tuesday and position here midweek will ensure your professional instincts are sharp as the tide turns on the income front. This will also highlight the continuing partnership between income, work and career forces.
While the Moon's visit to your work sector last week has left you with an intuitive edge and read on work matters and the Moon's return to your career sector later this week will sharpen your professional instincts and a chance to get your bearings, for the most part this is a week for keeping your money rather than your professional hat on. With the Sun having returned to your income sector over the weekend and Venus returning on Wednesday new income opportunities are opening up, with a chance to use any financial tension as motivation. By the time the Moon returns to your career sector on Friday financial tensions will be easing back, bringing you to a point where you're able to draw on the professional momentum created in the early months of the year to fuel a new sense of determination on the income front.
The Moon only left your work sector on Monday, allowing you to move into the week with an intuitive edge and your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the get go and in any week that is going to be an advantage. However, this isn't just any week, with a week that begins with the Moon having left your work sector less than 24 hours earlier due to end with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos back here for his first double dip visit in 78 years. Mars only left your work sector in early March and not due to return until 2018 this is a rare opportunity for a do over. Mars will retrograde back in, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential where before all doors were closed. This makes it important to trust your gut from the get go, paying attention to the clues that can help you to start lining up in front of old doors before they open.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your work sector is one thing, but with a Full Moon in effect this is a whole new ball game, evoking strong emotional responses and pushing buttons from the get go. With Mars due to leave your work sector over the weekend this is going to create a trigger for all the untapped potential and second chances his retrograde phase has been here to promote, with one last push in his final days. However, all Full Moons come with a degree of pressure and this time there is some real conflict between Mars in his final days in your work sector and the wind down of your current solar year, which began over the weekend. You've reached a point in the year where the wind has been taken out of your sails and there is a need to slow down and pace yourself. Yet with Mars in his final days in your work sector some smart time management and working smarter is required
Despite the fact that the week begins with playful lunar vibes in effect you've reached a defining point in your professional year. After the Sun's departure from your career sector over the weekend Venus is gearing up for her departure on Tuesday, making Monday a day for listening to your heart as you cement your professional confidence, desires and expectations. Monday is also the day that Mercury turns direct in your career sector, releasing the handbrake on the career front just 13 days after the money gods released the handbrake on the income front. The Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday will see support coalesce around Mercury in his early hours in direct motion in your career sector, ensuring you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. With income, work and career forces still working as a team this is a chance to draw a new line in the sand.
Don't be put off by the bumpy start to the Sun's return to your career sector over the weekend and for Venus when she returns on Tuesday. This is less a false start and more a shock start, creating a situation where within the space of just 48 hours you've gone from no planetary activity in your career sector since June 2015 to new doors open and the biggest wakeup calls all coming in the early days. Out of the month that the Sun will spend in your career sector and the 24 days Venus will spend here fuelling your professional confidence, your desires and expectations and attracting opportunities, these early days are the most challenging, thanks to a Full Moon that is still in effect as you move into the week. Professional and/or work/life balance pressure is in your face from the get go, yet will start easing back and turning into motivation and leverage by Thursday.
On face value your professional year is slowing down and on the work front in particular the wheels are turning much slower and there is a growing need to work smarter and pace yourself. However, any thoughts that this means a slow down of opportunities is false and instead the professional and money gods are gearing up for some major developments across the income, work and career fronts over the comings weeks. With Mars retrograding back into your income sector over the weekend and new doors opening on the career front next month, something is brewing. In the meantime, the ball is entirely in the hands of work forces and with both planets in your work sector slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next week, this means working smarter and pacing yourself. Don't be afraid to spend time in the slow lane, for that's where you'll find the professional gods.
The professional gods' focus this week is on supporting the money gods, especially in the early and later days of the week. To begin with the support is for a Full Moon in your income sector that began in the weekend and will remain in effect until Tuesday. This goes beyond the fact that professional gods favour anything that can give them an edge and has its roots in an alliance forged between the planets in your work and income sectors over the last few months, a real 'I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine' partnership. This is one last push before Mars retrogrades back out of your income sector over the coming weekend, with the professional gods regrouping to support the warrior planet of the cosmos final days, especially when it comes to embracing his warrior spirit. Yet while Mars will take a break until early August work and income forces will continue to work together
While there is likely to be some pressure in the early part of the week, with a Full Moon in your sign spilling into Monday and exacerbating tensions already there, don't let this impact your professional confidence. However, nothing exists in a vacuum and while things are not only looking good professionally but there is an opportunity for a real turnaround on the work front this week, there is a danger of outside pressures and tensions colouring your professional confidence. This brings a need for some smart time management, but also a need to avoid sweating the small stuff. Your biggest danger is buying into a rush mentality, especially on the work front or assuming there are expectations on you that don't exist. Look at where pressure is coming from within rather than from anything external, choosing to work smarter and at a pace that works for you.
Sometimes first impressions can't be relied on but at the same time, even a supposed bad start can ultimately work to your advantage and that is the case this week. The Sun's return to your work sector over the weekend has opened the door to new work opportunities, with Venus' return on Tuesday opening the door to some of the best weeks of 2016 for work matters, here to fuel your confidence and attract opportunities. However, from where you stand at the start of the week it is more likely to feel like things have turned to custard. Work tensions and pressures are likely to remain high through to Thursday and even then only start to ease back. However, what new work opportunities are being confronted by are forces that don't want to be rushed, with the sooner you start working smarter the sooner you can turn this into an opportunity and some real leverage.
The Moon only left your career sector on Sunday, which is not only allowing you to move into the week with your professional instincts sharp from the get go, but it is only now that you're able to begin to process the valuable clues, hunches and insights that the weekend's emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses delivered. At the same time never has it been more important to hold onto the message this has left you with and are still being processed in the early days of the week, with Mars retrograding back over the weekend for a rare double dip visit. Mars only left your career sector in early March, with his return over the weekend due to open the door to the past, second chances and untapped potential and a rare opportunity for a do over. The last time Mars returned just months after leaving was 78 years ago, with a need to trust your gut from the get go.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always going to be an advantage, even more so when there is a Full Moon unfolding and especially with Mars due to retrograde back out over the weekend. While the Moon visits your career sector once a month and for months now has connected with both Mars and Saturn, the planets driving things professionally, it has been nearly a year since this has met with the opposition that this visit is bringing, which is the reason why this has turned into a Full Moon. Any Full Moon in your career sector is going to create some professional and/or work/life balance tension, but not to the degree that it is this year, with the professional gods fighting back in a way they don't normally do. With Mars leaving your career sector over the weekend he'll use any pressure to fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit.
