Starting the week with the Moon in Aries gives you an advantage from the get go and that is not just because of the intuitive edge. The Moon gives you a sixth sense that allows you to read between the lines and join the dots and that can be an advantage in any situation. This also puts the Moon at a friendly aspect to an alignment between playful and adventurous forces, adding fuel to an already potent cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces. This comes just as the month long wind down to your old solar year begins, a time when the lines between the past, present and future are starting to blur. As one solar year moves into its final phase new doors are already preparing to open, with both Venus and Mercury returning to Aries early next month. You start the week with the Sun looking back and the Moon looking forward.
The Sun and Mercury’s departure from your career sector over the weekend has taken the solar spotlight off your professional game, but this is far from the end of the story. That would have been the case in most other years, but with the force behind last week’s solar eclipse in effect until November and Mars due to spend a lot of time in your career sector this year, this is more a chance to pull back. Juno, queen of commitment is here until Friday, giving you a chance to work on an interim professional game plan and resolutions. Interim, because there is still a lot to play out and evolve. In the meantime, there is a lot more focus on your social life and matters and on personal and professional networking in general. The Moon will also play an important visit to Taurus this week, delivering some valuable clues, hunches and insights from Tuesday to Thursday.
When the Sun and Mercury left your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery over the weekend and returned to your career sector, this should have seen the dynamics of the year shift. That is still the case to a degree, but this is nowhere near the sudden and dramatic shift this will normally bring. Last year, by the time the Sun, Mercury and Venus left this adventurous part of your chart there was no more planetary activity until they returned last month. All of a sudden things took a dramatic professional shift last February and stayed there. That shift is nowhere near as sudden, complete or dramatic. Venus had already been in your career sector for a week before Mercury returned on Saturday. Together with Neptune on the career front and Jupiter on the job front, your professional game was already gaining momentum by the time the Sun returned on Sunday. At the same time adventurous forces aren’t going to roll over, instead maintaining a strong presence for months to come.
Hopefully you’re good at juggling or have learned from the work/life balance lessons of the past, for you’ll need them this week. Yet the key to balancing a stunning week for playful and adventurous forces with something special developing across the income, work and career fronts, is believing that you can have it all. If you don’t believe that it’s possible to have a balance between work and play or worse still, you don’t believe you deserve to, then nothing the stars can do will help make it happen. Yet you really can have the best of both worlds. It was over the weekend that the Sun and Mercury joined Venus in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery. This always brings you to an adventurous point in the year, but for the first time in 12 decades this comes with the support of lucky Jupiter in a playful and romantically charged part of your chart. Yet this is also a good week for income, work and career matters.
On Monday Ceres, one of the two forces behind last month’s total lunar eclipse in Leo, moves into her final month in retrograde motion. She also starts the month surrounded by support, aligned with both Mars in a playful and romantically charged part of your chart and by adventurous lunar vibes. This adds fuel to a potent cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces that have been building for weeks now, but won’t actually fully bloom until next month. This creates the right boost on all three fronts, at the right time. Mars, who moved into his final month in your romantic and creative sector over the weekend, will have his romantic and creative passions fueled. This will also give you the confidence to make the most of Ceres’ final month in retrograde motion and the doors open to the past and second chances.
While the solar spotlight moved onto your relationships over the weekend, as the week progresses the dynamics will change. Just over 12 hours separated Mercury’s return to your relationship sector on Saturday and the Sun’s on Sunday. This allows you to start the week with the two still closely aligned, with the Sun shining the solar spotlight on your relationships, while Mercury is there to give your relationships a voice. Together the Sun and Mercury allow you to get your head in the game and your feet on the ground. They are in a different camp to Venus and Neptune, with the planets of love and dreams aligned on Tuesday and Wednesday, in a way that is best enjoyed wearing your rose coloured glasses. Mercury is moving twice as fast as the Sun and by the weekend will have caught up with Venus and Neptune. This is when you can start walking the talk.
The Sun’s return to your work sector on Sunday was an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences. As the Sun returns to your work sector at the same time each year, always has and always will, there is nothing more ordinary than that. Yet apart from returning to find Venus and Mercury already, for the first time in 12 years the solar spotlight also revealed that you have lucky Jupiter in your income sector. Venus had been here for eight days since the Sun returned and as the planet of money she is already fueling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. The Sun brings the reality checks and this year the reality is just how well positioned you are on the job and income fronts. You also start the week with the Moon in your relationship sector, with a lot of support from Mars in your communication sector.
One of the best times of any year is when the Sun is in either Pisces or Cancer, fellow Water signs to Scorpio and that is exactly what you have this week. The Sun returned to fellow Water sign Pisces, ruler of your romantic and creative sector over the weekend. Yet this doesn’t explain the dramatic boost in confidence this triggers or how widespread it is. This comes from the fact that as the Sun on Sunday, Mercury and Saturday and Venus a week earlier, it was to find lucky Jupiter in Scorpio. The coming weeks will see alliances deepen, along with the courage to follow your heart. This comes just as the week gets off to a stunning start across the income, work and career fronts. As this is more a taste of things to come, with the real developments taking place in March, you’ll start the week with a boost in financial, job and professional confidence as well.
The downside to the alignments in play at the start of the week is that you might suffer from a severe case of Mondayitis. However, the upside is that with the Moon not returning to work sector until Tuesday, there is no reason why you shouldn’t embrace this or why you can’t do both. The Moon is just passing through your work sector and will leave on Thursday, but this brings clues to not only exciting new developments ahead on the job front, but on the income front as well. Yet before the Moon returns to your work sector on Tuesday, it starts the week in a playful and romantically charged part of your chart and this is part of the reason for a case of Mondayitis. The other part is the Moon’s alignment with Ceres in an adventurous part of your chart and with Mars, now in his final month in Sagittarius. This adds fuel to an already potent cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces.
The Sun’s return to your communication sector on Sunday came just hours after the Moon’s departure and just a day after Mercury, planet of communication returned. This has given you some time over the weekend to begin the process of getting the communication lines open, but it is something that will continue. Mercury, moving twice as fast as the Sun, will leave your communication sector in two weeks from Monday and Venus in two weeks from Tuesday. This is a week where the communication gods are rolling out their big guns. This also saw the Sun and Mercury leave your income sector over the weekend, but unlike other years this has not brought things to a close. Venus spent less than 48 hours in your income sector last year and once the Sun and Mercury left, there was no more planetary activity until they returned last month. That is not the case this year, with a lot set to unfold. For now hold onto the smart head for money this has left you with.
The Moon’s return to your communication sector on Tuesday is one of the highlights of this week, with a visit that starts on Tuesday and ends on Thursday. This is always going to be an advantage and not just on the communication front. This is a smart, intellectually savvy and articulate part of your chart, bringing a mix of intuition and logic, imagination and intelligence together, giving you an edge across the board. However, the real advantage is on the communication front and a chance to begin the rebuilding process. It was the Sun’s departure from Aquarius on Sunday that took the pressure off you and your relationships. This also wrapped up a birthday month that included both a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector and last week’s solar eclipse in Aquarius, both putting pressure on you and your relationships. This is the Moon’s first visit to your communication sector since both eclipses, with a chance now to get the communication lines open.
Happy birthday Pisces. It was the Sun’s return to Pisces on Sunday that makes Monday the first full day of your birthday month and new solar year and with it a chance to make this the first full day of the real march into 2018. Forget New Year’s Day, Monday February 19, is the day when you get to draw a new line in the sand. Regardless of when your birthday falls, waking to a Piscean Sun brings you back to your native energy and to the start of a new solar year. With Venus and Mercury in Pisces you’ve got your heart and head in the game from the get go, but to start with it is your heart that has the edge. Here for a week before Mercury returned on Saturday, Venus’ alignment with dreamy Neptune on Tuesday and Wednesday allows you to create some bold dreams, desires and expectations for the coming year. By the weekend Mercury will be catching up, with a chance to focus on the ‘when, where and how’.
