Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is your ruling planet, so his final days in Aries were always going to be important and were always destined to dominate the week. Yet as important as his final days in Aries are, his return to your income sector on Thursday is equally important, with game changing implications across the income, work and career fronts over the coming weeks. Yet, before then, Mars is encouraging you to throw yourself into the things that excite you, your passions and fighting spirit. Mars will spend his final days in Uranus, who in his final weeks in Aries, is bringing home a nine year mission to find an authentic path forward and your sense of purpose. As they join forces, for the last time in Aries for another eight decades, both Mars and Uranus’ missions will reach peak intensity.
This week will come disguised a very ordinary week but in reality, it is anything but. What will reinforce a belief that it is business as usual, is the Moon’s return to Taurus on Monday where, as has been the case since last July, it will be to find Juno, queen of commitment still here, still fuelling a sense of commitment and resolve. The one difference that will be immediately apparent is that there is no push back from planets on the relationship front, with the last planet having left since the Moon was last here. However, within hours of the Moon’s return Juno will leave and that’s when your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses will start to pick up on a sense of excitement and anticipation. Juno’s departure leaves you with no planetary activity in Taurus, but this doesn’t feel like an ending. Instead, this has been a practice run ahead of Mars’ return on Thursday and the major new doors this will open.
From the moment the week begins there is a likely to be a sense of anticipation and change in the air. While this is mainly because there are some big planetary moves, but the one that will have the most personal impact is Juno’s return to Gemini on Monday. This is something that even the Moon’s return midweek won’t fully recognise as game changing as it is. Juno is an asteroid, but she is also the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships. In this massive year for relationship growth, Juno returns with a chance to view this from a unique vantage point. Juno is the goddess that rules marriage and committed relationships and in this lucky year for relationship matters, she is here to help make that happen. Yet Juno isn’t in your relationship sector, she is in Gemini and she is also here to make sure your own needs and voice aren’t lost in the process.
This is a week when there is not only a massive amount of change, but the real make up and dynamics of 2019 will be revealed. Until now, there has been a lot of focus on job and career matters and for good reason. With lucky Jupiter in your work sector until December and Mars having returned to your career sector on New Year’s Day, this is where the focus has been. While 18 months of planetary activity in a playful part of your chart was playing out, the last planet left there late last month. While there are powerful forces in play on the relationship front, busy job and career matters have dominated. However Venus left your work sector last week and forces there have settled into a more long term focus, with career matters reaching the same place when Mars left your career sector on Thursday. As job and career forces settle to a more steady pace, this will allow major support for friendship and relationship building to rise.
In a way, this is a week of two halves, but those two halves will lock into place and reveal the true makeup of 2019. Those two halves centre around Mars and his change in focus on Thursday. It was last week that Venus left a playful and romantically charged part of your chart where, as the planets of love and passion they have created some special dynamics across the playful and adventurous fronts. Venus returned to your work sector last week and when Mars returns to your career sector on Thursday, they will once more come together, this time working their magic on the professional front. Yet while the week will pivot from an adventurous to a professional focus, the rest of the year will balance on that pivot point. Venus and Mars leave behind forces that will continue to make this a huge year for all things playful, romantic and adventurous. Yet they also represent forces on the job and career fronts that will continue to play out long after both leave.
Change is in the air but also diversity. There is a lot to get excited about on both the job and career fronts, with forces coming on board or into play this week, continuing to unfold for several months. With twin Full Moons in your income sector coming up, one in March and the other in April, there is a new sense of excitement and anticipation across the income, work and career fronts. However, this is not in an urgent or demanding way, for forces happy to slowly unfold. This is the opposite of last year’s busy focus. Yet at the same time, there is something exciting developing on the playful and adventurous front and here, forces in play are not happy to play in the background. Venus, the planet of love is spending Valentine’s week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, while Mars will return to an adventurous part of your chart on Valentine’s Day.
Having Mars on the other side of the sky in your relationship sector hasn’t been easy, but his return on New Year’s Day are sped up the process finally balancing your personal and relationship needs. Between New Year’s Day and Mars’ departure on Thursday, he will or already has opposed the Sun of every Libran on the planet, speeding up a journey that began in 2010, to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Mars’ departure will take the pressure off, but this is a journey that will continue. Who you have in your corner is Jupiter, the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system. From his position in your communication sector, Jupiter is turning this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. In the meantime, while things are starting to move on the job front, this is being balanced by playful and adventurous energies. Across the board, balance appears to be the message.
While the week gets off to a busy start and is likely to remain busy, the pace should drop back by Friday. What you are experiencing is not only Mars’ final days in your work sector, but his last alignment with Uranus here for another eight decades. Since 2010 Uranus, who will leave early next month, has been on a mission to not only put work and job matters on an authentic path, but anything you put your time and energy two. Mars returned on New Year’s Day to fire things up, accelerating the pace on anything that keeps you busy, but also the process of finding your personal path and a sense of purpose. Ahead of Mars departure on Thursday there might be some last minutes shifts in order to line you up on the right path. Yet by the weekend there will be something special developing on the communication and relationship fronts.
Venus’ departure from Sagittarius last week has not only left your heart with a voice and a better sense of what you want from the year ahead, but has brought you to an important point in Jupiter’s 13 month visit. Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returned to Sagittarius in November to begin a new 12 year, Jupiter cycle of expansion. Jupiter will spend 13 months in Sagittarius and before leaving in December, will plant seeds and lay down the foundations for this journey. There has been shorter term planetary activity here since Jupiter’s return, activity that is more focused on getting your new solar year off the ground, but can help launch this new journey as well. Venus was the last of those planets, with the real journey now starting. Meanwhile, there is something exciting developing on the income and job front, along with a push to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play.
On one level, it appears that you have won the Valentine’s lottery. You not only have Venus, the planet of love spending her first full week in Capricorn, but Mars will return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Valentine’s Day. Yet this is bigger than just one day or one week and is bigger than romance. Mars returns on Thursday to fuel your romantic and creative passions and fighting spirit, but also prepare the way for Uranus’ game changing return early next month. Even the Moon’s return on Monday will tap into a sense of excitement and anticipation that suggests this is something that is here to stay. Yet at the same time, there are some exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts. These aren’t as game changing and are more low key, but bring a quiet new sense of confidence across all three fronts.
The last full week of your birthday month comes with a new and unusual level of clarity and confidence. Mercury’s departure over the weekend has left you with an intellectually savvy edge that you can deploy when and if you need to, but this has taken away a need to over think things. With Venus not returning to Aquarius to give your heart a voice until early next month, the Sun has no interest in reinventing the wheel. Without pressure or urgency, but a lot of support, especially from playful and adventurous forces, this is a chance to enjoy the Sun’s final week in Aquarius. After the ups and downs of the last two years, the Sun’s final week in Aquarius is a sign of the stability and lack of drama ahead. Yet there are also signs of good news on the home, income and job fronts and even Valentine’s Day has an unexpected romantic twist this year.
A lot of the focus is on Mars this week, as he works to make his final days in your income sector count. Aligned with Uranus, for the last time here for another eight decades, Mars is determined not to go quietly. Uranus, in your income sector since 2010 and due to finally leave in early March, has been on a mission to redefine your values, across all the currencies in your life. Even Mars, in his final days, knows that it can’t be just about the money. Mars is giving you the courage to fight for what you deserve across all the currencies in your life. However, with a major year for professional growth stretching out in front of you, Mars will work to smash a few glass ceilings before leaving on Thursday. This is when Mars will turn his focus away from smashing glass ceilings and onto smashing through communication barriers.
