The week might begin with professional pressure or work/life balance tension running high but will end with a new sense of professional and job confidence. However, it won’t be a gradual transition from one to the other, with the timing of the shift down to one pivotal 64 minute period on Wednesday. The week begins with Mercury, in his final days in your career sector under pressure from all four planets in your home and family sector and that will be the case until he leaves on Wednesday. This is bringing home the work/life balance reminders delivered last month, with Mercury’s departure allowing any work/life balance tension to drop back. However, it is the Moon’s return to your work sector just 64 minutes before Mercury leaves that will put it there to catch any tension as it falls, passing it onto the planets there in order to turn this into motivation, especially to work smarter. By the time Venus returns to your career sector over the weekend everything will have changed.
While the Sun left your career sector late last month and Mercury will finally wrap up an over two month visit on 5th August, this is not the end of all the planetary activity here. For the first time since 2012, you move into August with Venus yet to return and this is for the same reason as it was eight years ago, with a retrograde phase holding her back. Often all planetary activity on the career front for the year can end when the Sun leaves and the only reason it didn’t is that Mercury too turned retrograde, keeping him here. Mercury returned at the end of May for what should have been a 14 to 15 day chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open and to update your professional game plan and resolutions. Instead, a retrograde turn at the end of June means he only turned direct last month and won’t leave until 5th August, giving you access to his intellectually savvy edge for an incredible amount of time. Mercury’s departure will temporarily end the planetary activity here but having spent over two months here by the time Venus returns three days later she will easily pick up from where he left off. However, this ushers in a new era, for while Mercury rules through the heart rather than the head and through the laws of attraction. As the planet of money, Venus has returned to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. The Sun and Mercury have put in the hard work and Venus returns to reap the benefits. Venus will also work closely with Neptune and Ceres, who in retrograde motion in your work sector are updating your needs, dreams and priorities on the job front. The Moon will be in your work sector from 5th August to 8th August and leaving just hours before Venus returns to your career sector will make it easy to entwine the two from the get go.
