Mars’ departure from your work sector last week has changed the professional dynamics, but with any pressure running out of steam early in the week this is going to complete the transformation. For the first time all year and since November 2011, you’re able to finally catch your breath and get off the treadmill long enough to process what is already on the table. This is just a brief respite, for with the Sun just 6 weeks away from your work sector things will heat up again later next month and it will stay that way for the rest of the year. However, what lies ahead is paced, controlled and without the intensity, pressure and urgency of the last 8 months. With Pluto able to settle back into his retrograde phase in your career sector, you’re able to pull back and work behind the scenes.
There is no doubt that you’ve always had the will and even more so since Saturn turned direct in your work sector late last month and the inspiration coming from the income front, but until now you haven’t had the way. This is the week where the ‘will’ meets the ‘way’ and you’re finally able to put into practice the adage that tells us, that where there’s a will there’s a way. It would be nice if that was true but the reality is that we can have all the will in the world, but without the means to make it happen there’s often a lot of effort and not a lot to show for it. It was Mars’ return to your work sector that was the game changer and as the warrior planet of the cosmos spends his first full week, it’s time to put everything you have into everything you do.
You’ll move into the week with the Moon in your career sector, giving you a head start, sharpening your professional instincts and ensuring that you have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground. But the real advantage is less what’s there and more what isn’t there, which are the work/life balance pressures of the past. While the Moon visits your career sector once a month, for the previous 8 months Mars has been in your home and family sector and in opposition, putting them into conflict. This meant that you got your monthly dose of professional instincts, clues and hunches and it came with a side order of work/life balance issues. Finally, you have a chance to focus exclusively on the second chances old doors are now open to and a chance to work behind the scenes.
While career pressure began easing last week, work pressure has been more stubborn, but finally lets go in the early days of the week and by midweek will be easing. This gives you a chance to not only take some of the pressure off you, but to pull back and pace yourself. While there are still likely to be some work/life balance issues to deal with, especially mid week, this is more a test of how much you’ve learnt from the past. The Moon’s visit to your career sector between Tuesday and Thursday will ensure your professional instincts are sharp as Uranus moves into his final days in direct motion. With Uranus turning retrograde in your career sector on Friday and Mercury in your income sector over the weekend, the door to the past and second chances is about to open on both fronts.
After last week’s Full Moon in your work sector and pressure on Pluto and your work sector still in play as you move into the new week, you can be forgiven for wanting to wave the white flag, not sure whether you can handle yet another stressful week. However, what you’re anticipating will turn out to be a false alarm, with pressure on Pluto and your work sector easing by Tuesday. It’s more a case that everything is now out in the open and the hard part, of bringing everything to a head, is now behind you. The Moon’s return to your career sector on Thursday, a month to the day since Jupiter left will both sharpen your professional instincts and give you a chance to get your bearings. It’s time to get off the treadmill and spend more time working behind the scenes.
With last week’s work/life balance issues behind you and sorted, you’re able to move into your new working week feeling a lot more confident. The Moon’s visit to your work sector late last week helped, bringing a reminder of the dreams and expectations you moved into 2012 with. It’s only now that you’re starting to get a real sense of just how much the professional dynamics have changed and how game changing having Jupiter, planet of luck on board has been. At the same time that Venus is moving into her final weeks in your career sector, with your professional desires becoming stronger and bolder, you’re starting to realise that it’s by following your heart and a sense of purpose that everything else is coming along for the ride. It’s time to start believing in what’s possible.
As you move into the new working week it’s going to look very different from conditions just a week ago. The week begins with the Moon in your work sector and the Sun in your career sector, ensuring that you have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground on the work front and your eyes open and a lot more objectivity on the career front. With the Sun not leaving your career sector until the end of next week, a New Moon next week, Venus not even returning next month and the pressures of previous weeks gone, there is little urgency but a growing sense of confidence. While the Moon will leave your work sector on Tuesday, he’ll be here long enough to reveal that the work pressures of previous months are also gone, while a sense of hindsight is even sharper.
While things may be fairly fluid on the work front his week, with work pressure easing only to flare up again, this is a false impression of a professional scene that is actually settling down. It’s on Tuesday that entrenched work pressure finally eases, but it’s also the same day that the Moon returns. While this will sharpen your instincts and ensure that you also have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground, it will also put him in opposition with Mars and Saturn, creating some temporary tension and wake up calls. This will ease by Thursday and behind the scenes is an easing back that will only reveal itself after the Moon has moved on. With Uranus turning retrograde in your work sector on Friday and Mercury in your career sector on Sunday, expect things to slow down.
For the first time all year you’re moving into a new working week with no planetary activity in either of your professional houses, thanks to Mars’ departure from your career sector last week. With the monkey no longer on your back but with more than enough momentum on both fronts and all your work and career options on the table, it’s now about playing what is already in motion, in a way that you’re better able to pace yourself. It’s the Moon’s return to your work sector on Thursday, a month to the day since Jupiter left, that gives you a chance to tap into your instincts and get your bearings, but also into the engine that is driving things. With new doors opening on the career front next month, this grants you a temporary reprieve and a chance to catch your breath.
As Mars spends his first full week in your career sector, you’re likely to catch your second wind, able to channel all your passions, energy and even your anger into getting anything stalled up to speed. As you move into the new week it’s only been 2 weeks since Saturn turned direct in your career sector, far too early to expect the kind of momentum that Mars is now asking for, but after spending the first half of the year stalled, you’re more than ready for a fresh quest and you’ve finally found the energy to carry things if need be. But chances are you won’t need to, for with Venus now in her final month in your work sector and Jupiter on board, once you have a project in mind and a sense of direction, it’s going to be more a case of how can you slow things down.
After a few turbulent weeks on the work front things are settling down this week and looking a lot more optimistic. During the Sun’s month long visit to your work sector he’s on a mission to reveal where things stand and what you have to work with, asking that you keep your eyes open and your head out of the sand. But with events over the last 2 weeks having now flushed everything to the surface and with the Moon in your income sector as you move into the new week, allowing you to start the week with a nose for money, all of a sudden things are looking a lot brighter. With the Sun here until the end of next week, next week’s New Moon due to open more doors and Venus not even returning until early next month, you have time and the resources to pace yourself.
Mercury was already slowing down when he returned to your work sector late last month, moving far below his normal speed. Normally here for just 2 weeks, this would have seen Mercury do a rush job and he would have been leaving early this week, triggering ideas, getting your mind thinking and opening communication lines, then moving on. Yet this year Mercury is not making a hit and run visit and instead of leaving early in the week he’s slowing down and over the weekend will turn retrograde. This opens the door to a 3 week retrograde phase that will give you a chance to work behind the scenes and back at the drawing board, as well as an opportunity for second chances. With Uranus turning retrograde in your income sector on Friday, the two are destined to go hand in hand.
