In the lead up to the weekend's lunar eclipse in an adventurous part of your chart heart and mind are also coming together in a way that is challenging your excuses, so that by the time you're ready to take some bold risks of faith there are no more excuses to hide behind. With your confidence returning there are no more excuses for staying stuck in a fashion rut.
Long before the Sun leaves your sign on Tuesday and wraps up your birthday month you've been ready to move on, with a clear sense of what you want from the coming year. By now you should have a sense of the future you're moving into and if you haven't yet got a new look for this new solar year, then you at least know how to pull it off when and if you feel so inclined.
When your birthday month and new solar year begins on Tuesday the Sun will return to not only find Venus, planet of beauty in your sign but with heart and mind on the same page and you already have some strong likes and dislikes. Even before your new solar year begins you've had a chance to develop a new look for this new year, one that is more authentic and unique to the new you emerging.
The biggest influences on your fashion choices and approach this week are likely to be a sense of nostalgia and something that you may be seeing as a fault but is actually a necessity, which is a perceived sense of laziness. Where you can't be bothered or feel you've lost your motivation is simply the universe asking that you don't sweat the small stuff.
At the same time that professional tensions are easing and any work/life balance issues are easing off you're likely to find that this is when things start falling into place. While a lot of your fashion focus has already shifted to your social life and what you're wearing after hours, in a week where you're likely to be in the professional spotlight image is everything.
There is no doubt that your professional star is on the rise, with the Sun's return to your career sector on Tuesday not only putting the solar spotlight on your professional game but on just how many options you have. With Venus still in your career sector and not leaving until early next month you still have time to work on your professional image, taking the time to get it right.
Where Venus, planet of beauty has been bringing a desire for a more adventurous approach to fashion since earlier in the month, you now have a lot more clarity and permission from the stars to move out of your comfort zone or out of a rut. While you'll find your excuses are being challenged what you won't find is any urgency, with the fashion gods asking instead that you get curious, exploring your options.
At the same time that Venus is evoking a desire for a more passionate approach to life and your fashion choices, wanting to change and spice things up, you'll find that you'll become a lot more aware of your options as the week progresses, at the same time that heart and mind begin working as one. This is when a desire for change becomes an opportunity to start walking the talk.
While some of the tension of recent weeks is easing back life is going to be just as busy, at the same time that some real success or breakthroughs are possible, especially on the work front. In a week where it's more important than ever to look the part time is likely to be your scarcest commodity, with a need for organisation and good time management.
In a week where finding a balance between work and play is likely to be your biggest issue Venus, planet of beauty is focused on the work side of things. While this is likely to see your fashion focus fixed more on what you're wearing to work as new doors open, it's also important to keep your romantic and creative passions engaged, not taking yourself too seriously.
A desire for fun, colour and creativity in your life and fashion choices not only continues this week, with heart and mind working on the same page you'll find it easier to see what you want and make it happen. With life about to become a lot busier and more professionally focused over the coming weeks it's time to put some of the fun and colour back into your life while you can.
Just when your fashion focus is likely to be at a low ebb, preferring instead to go for easy options and less complicated fashion and/or beauty routines, there's also a need to be ready to step up at a moment's notice. At the same time looking and feeling confident is important, while some unexpected professional opportunities could see the spotlight fall on you, with little or no warning.
