24 - May - 2016
During Mercury's first full day in direct motion in your income sector Venus' departure creates a situation where in one fell swoop the tides have turned, the handbrake is removed and knowing what you want it's now all about making it happen. While Venus shifts her focus to supporting your communications, especially when it comes to giving your heart and relationships a voice, the professional and money gods regroup, ready now to support forward momentum across the income and work fronts, while continuing to give your professional instincts 20/20 hindsight.
Just three days after your birthday month ended and a day after Mercury's direct turn released the handbrake holding the launch of this new solar year back Venus leaves, having spent the last 24 days giving your heart a voice. Venus only returns to Taurus once a year and while she'll return in 2017 that will be part of your next solar year's journey, not this solar year. Moving forward hold onto the desires and expectations this leaves you with, trusting your heart to set the destinations into your internal GPS.
While mentally you won't be ready to fully embrace this new solar year until near the end of your birthday month, today is the point where your heart becomes engaged. Venus' return to Gemini gives your heart a voice just days after the Sun's return over the weekend. Where the Sun's job is to tell the truth and give you an authentic starting point, Venus' job is to ask what you want from the coming year. At this stage this is more about asking the question than finding the answer, one that you're more likely to find by looking within than by looking outward.
While the Moon's departure from your work sector today brings the Full Moon to an end, with Mars in his final days there is no way that a push to stay busy will dissipate anytime soon. Yet in the early days of the month long wind down of your old solar year a need to pull back and almost go into retreat goes a step deeper today as Venus joins the Sun in a nostalgic part of your chart. These two opposing parts of your life, the one that wants you to slow down and the part that says no 'I've got to stay busy' are now in direct competition, with the next few days crucial for finding the right balance.
While the Moon's departure from a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart today brings the Full Moon this created over the weekend to an end, this has awoken something that there is no putting back in the box. With Mars just four days away from retrograding back out, your romantic and creative passions have been fuelled with a fighting and warrior spirit that is no longer willing to let you hide behind old excuses, especially with the doors still open to the past and second chances.
While Venus' return to your career sector just two days behind the Sun's return over the weekend is good news professionally, creating the potential to not only redefine your professional desires and expectations but attract new opportunities, she too hits a roadblock from the get go. It seems that the work/life balance tensions brought to a head by the weekend's Full Moon aren't dialling back and if anything they are likely to be on the rise. This is simply new professional opportunities meeting resistance from your home and family life, with a need to see this as an opportunity to work smarter.
As she leaves your financial sector today Venus not only wraps up her mission to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations but leaves money matters in good hands. With a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight to draw on, just three days after your annual financial review ran its course you're in a much better position to take your financial power back. What you've had a chance to nail down over recent days is your bottom line, able to get real and establish an authentic starting point.
Just three days after the Sun's departure from your relationship sector brought your annual relationship review to a close Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships leaves today. Venus was able to stay on for a few more days after the reality checks ended, leaving you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Yet more important than that is what else Venus left behind or who she left behind. With Mercury, planet of communication staying on board your relationships are in safe hands, as the real journey begins.
As the Moon leaves your sign the Full Moon this created over the weekend ends, but instead of any personal and/or relationship tension this created easing back it is likely to be still rising. This is not a sign that something is broken or gone wrong and simply that the Sun, who returned to your relationship sector over the weekend and Venus, who returns today, have both stumbled in a major mission to put your needs back on the map. Your relationships can't run roughshod over your needs as they may have in the past.
As the saying often goes, be careful what you wish for. After no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses since Mars left your career sector on the 4th January and none in your work sector since June 2015, new doors are finally opening on the work front and your energy levels bottom out. Where the weekend's Full Moon may have taken the wind out of your sails you'll find it's still hard to get motivated, but rather than a problem this is protection against throwing yourself in boots and all too soon, forcing you to stand back and get a lay of the land first, which will ultimately work to your advantage.
There is a potential problem looming and from this perspective you can't even see it coming, especially as it is the kind of problem you want to have. Your biggest danger now, in the Sun's early days in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and as Venus returns today, is not appreciating its importance, letting the demands of others and life highjack this. However, with Mars retrograding back into your career sector over the weekend, the battle to find the right balance between work and play has already begun, it just isn't being announced as such.
While the Sun's return to your home and family sector over the weekend and now Venus' return today is fuelling the work/life balance tensions that came to a head during the weekend's Full Moon, expect this to get worse before it gets better. However, nothing is broken or gone wrong, just that home and family matters are becoming more important just as Mars is in his final days in your career sector and it is more important than ever to have your professional hat on. This is all about balance and working smarter, but most of all ensuring the communication lines open.
