After nearly 4 months in your business sector Venus has reached her last full week and she’s pulling out all the stops to ensure that you’re listening to your heart, tying up loose ends as you bring a major review of your professional desires and expectations to an end. Venus will have help in her final days, with the Moon returning to your business sector on Tuesday and leaving on Thursday, a week to the day before Venus is due to leave. This makes the middle days of the week especially important for listening to and trusting your professional instincts, desires and expectations, listening to what your heart and your emotional and intuitive responses are telling you. Trust that if you follow your heart the rest will fall into place, with a need to avoid over thinking things.
There is a major shift in the dynamics in play on the professional front this week and it’s here to stay, for the next 21 months anyway. As the North Node spends its first full week in your business sector this has not only brought a new gravitational force into play, one that is naturally pulling things in the right direction, this has brought the elements of fate and destiny into play. This is having a big impact on Mars, who since December has been fuelling your professional passions and fighting spirit, along with a sense of urgency. That urgency is gone and it may even feel that the wind has been taken out of your sails or you’ve lost your edge. Yet there is also a new sense of confidence and with Mars turning retrograde over the weekend you even have a chance to retrace your steps.
At the same time that the Sun is not only spending his first full week in your business sector but in the lead up to the weekend’s New Moon is getting ready to open new doors, work matters are getting ready to take a back seat. Until just last week the main driving force on the professional front had been on moving work matters forward, in an ongoing march towards distant goals and objectives. That changed when the North Node left last week and as Saturn and Ceres, the two remaining planets in your work sector regroup, a decision is made to pull back. Ceres will turn retrograde in your work sector on Thursday and Saturn next Monday, beginning a review phase that will see work matters take a more background role or to put things on autopilot, as new business opportunities open up.
There is a need to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the get go, trusting your instincts and your sixth sense and especially an intuitive sense that something has shifted or clicked into play. In any week having the Moon in your work sector as you move into the new week would be an advantage, not only giving you an intuitive read on things, but a chance to return to the intentions, resolutions and expectations you moved into the year with. Yet by the time the Moon leaves your work sector on Tuesday, so much will have changed or at least been revealed to you over the previous 10 days that how you see things could be forever changed. With a new force in play on the business front and a new sense of confidence on the income front, the future is looking a lot brighter.
As Venus spends her last full week in your work sector it’s all about listening to your heart and thanks to the South Node’s departure from your business sector last week, putting all your focus onto work matters. Even the Moon will get involved, moving through your work sector from Tuesday and Thursday, aligning with Venus in a way that gives you a chance to put your heart and instincts on the same page. The Moon will leave a week to the day before Venus is due to wrap up her longest visit to your work sector in over 200 years and with Pluto staying on to help walk the talk and create the changes necessary in order to make things happen, this is all about knowing what you do and don’t want on the work front. Leave the ‘when, where and how’ until after Venus is gone.
With the Sun gone from your work sector and your annual review over, while everything is now out in the open the majority of the week will be spent in review, bringing a need for patience. Having retrograded back into your work sector midmonth Mercury is still in retrograde motion, but due to turn direct over the weekend is applying the brakes and slowing down as the week progresses. This may make it appear that things have become stalled or stuck and that the past, old work matters or delays are plaguing you. In reality this is a week for a tactical retreat, for with Mercury turning direct over the weekend and Venus returning next week the most important weeks of the year for work matters begins then and you need to be ready. You’ll then have until the 6th April to bring things home.
This could be a confusing professional week, not quite knowing whether you’re coming or going and whether you should have your eye on the road ahead or the rear view mirror. The reality is that it’s all of the above, but in two distinct camps. On the work front it’s all about the future and the road ahead, while on the business front as a whole the focus is still firmly on the past, at least for now. The contrast comes from the fact that while lucky Jupiter is not only spending his last full week in retrograde motion in your business sector but is slowing down to a snail’s pace, the Sun’s first full week in your work sector is preparing you for the new door’s the weekend’s New Moon will open for you. With Jupiter turning direct next week a review phase is coming to an end.
As you move into the new week there’s a need to keep an open mind, for a lot has changed over the preceding 10 days, something that you are still adjusting to. Things began to shift with the Full Moon in your business sector the weekend before last, lifting the veil over the future just long enough to get a glimpse of the big opportunities ahead and gain a sense of confidence and direction. The more immediate game changer was the South Node’s return to your work sector last week, with its first full week here since 1997 bringing the elements of fate and destiny into play and more direct access to the laws of synchronicity already in play. This calls for a lot of faith in the future and also in the elements of fate, making it more about being as ready as you can for when opportunity knocks.
You are experiencing a fairly rare phenomenon, in that this is the first week since August 2012 where you have no cosmic activity in either of your professional houses. While this gives you the freedom to take your professional hat off and even take a complete break this week if you want to, there is more than enough momentum to keep things on track. What you have this week, because the Moon won’t visit either of your professional houses, is a chance to gain some clarity and to put things into perspective. It was the South Node’s departure from your work sector last week that finally set you free from the past and with the next round of planetary activity not kicking off until May, gives you a chance to let things settle. With no cosmic pressure the power is back in your hands.
There has been some dramatic changes on the business front during the second half of last week, with the North Node not only returning to your business sector but already bringing a call for a higher purpose and a sense that this is your time. This the North Node’s first full week in your business sector since 1997 and with the elements of fate and destiny in play and a current naturally drawing things in the right direction, this causes Mars to have a major rethink. Realising that your professional star is on the rise and you have a fateful 21 months in front of you, Mars’ response is to do a U turn, heading back to the drawing board. Already slowing down, Mars’ retrograde turn over the weekend is a chance to spend time preparing for what you now sense is possible.
Just as you reach a point where you know exactly how things work, what’s required of you and are familiar with the dynamics in play, so much so that you could sleep walk your way through things if you wanted to, the game has been completely changed. It was the North Node’s departure from your business sector last week that not only disengaged the autopilot that has been in charge since August 2012, putting the controls back in your hands, but has slowed down the pace dramatically. For while the North Node had kept your professional game flying in a straight line towards the future, Saturn and Ceres, the two planets that are staying behind, are both shifting their focus to the past. Ceres’ retrograde turn in your business sector on Thursday and Saturn’s next Monday ushers in a major review.
There is a need to move into the new week with your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground, keeping your professional hat on to a point of developing tunnel vision if need be, especially in the early days of the week. For by the time the Moon leaves your business sector on Tuesday this will bring a game changing 10 days to an end, less because of what may have happened and more because of what this has opened your eyes to. This 10 day period began with a Full Moon in your work sector the week before last, pulling back the curtain and revealing some major opportunities ahead, continued with the South Node’s return to your income sector last week and concluded with the Moon’s return to your business sector over the weekend. With your instincts sharp this is a chance to regroup.
