Weekly Career Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 15 July 2019
There are many layers to this week's lunar eclipse. It is the Moon's return to your career sector on Monday that will begin the build up to a lunar eclipse less than 48 hours later, something that could create some intensity or even some tension and pressure. That is because, unlike the solar eclipse two weeks ago, a lunar eclipse is an eclipsing Full Moon, which is a result of the Sun and Moon moving into opposition. With Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion here, this may bring up past issues and even shake some trees. Yet if that is all you see, which could be your reality at the time, you are only seeing a fraction of the real story. This is not an isolated or random event and is instead part of a much bigger picture. Six months ago, anything launched on a solar eclipse here in January has the potential to come to fruition. However, this is both a stepping stone to another solar eclipse in December and a chance to clear a path for the massive career developments later in the year.
The biggest danger, as the Moon approaches your career sector each month and especially with no planetary activity here and this your one chance to gain vital insight, is overthinking things. A few days before the Moon's return this will be on your radar, with your sixth sense picking up the imminent arrival of a flood of clues, hunches and insights. Yet it is human nature to want to fill in the blanks, creating a situation where there is a danger of inventing what we think the Moon might deliver, to a point where there is no room for the real message. And as the Moon's return on Wednesday is the last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month, you can't afford for that to happen. Fortunately, an adventurous lunar eclipse will provide the perfect smokescreen and the perfect distraction. This may even scramble your radar to a point where you don't even realise the Moon is on its way until all of a sudden your professional instincts kick in and you are flooded with new information. This is how it should be.
Until a new round of planetary activity on the job front begins later next month the only planet in either of your two professional houses is Neptune, in retrograde motion in your career sector and for the planet of dreams, this is a week of two halves. During the first half of the week Neptune, a planet that deals more in dreams than reality, will want to stay well clear of a lunar eclipse that will be delivering reality checks in the first three days of the week. Fortunately, none of those reality checks are on the professional front, so Neptune can afford to put his head in the sand. The week changes dramatically for Neptune on Thursday when, moving into her final 10 days in your income sector, Venus moves into a friendly aspect. Just a day later Mercury will retrograde back into your income sector and by the weekend the doors will be open to the past, second chances and untapped professional and income potential.
The shape of this professional year is changing, but rather than shifting in one fell swoop this is a gradual process that will take place over a five week period. Over that five week period, the planets on the career front that have been on watch and focused on moving this professional year forward will drop back, moving into review mode. At the same time both planets in your work sector, who have been in retrograde motion on the job front since April, will begin waking up. This five week period began with Chiron's retrograde turn in your career sector last week and with Eris turning retrograde here over the weekend, both planets here will be in retrograde motion by the end of the week. However, it is only now that work and job matters are starting to wake up, beginning with Ceres' direct turn in your work sector on Thursday. Jupiter will remain in retrograde motion for a few more weeks, allowing you to find your feet before the pace picks up on the job front.
This week's lunar eclipse in your work sector might toss you around a bit but this is mainly contained to the first three days of the week. Even before the Moon returns to your work sector on Monday and can oppose the Sun to create the lunar eclipse less than 48 hours later, there could be some work tension and job pressure. That is because the week begins with the Sun in opposition with Pluto in your work sector, after opposing Saturn there last week. Tension between not just the Sun but a parade of planets through a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and planets on the job front, has seen tensions come and go for the past month. However, the eclipse is the last real clash, with Venus helping to tie up loose ends in the second half of the week. This lunar eclipse is charged with clearing a path for major new developments on the job front later in the year, while the Sun is part of a crew charged with making sure you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
The Moon will not only return to your work sector this week but as the last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month, this will be a practice run. As this will also be the Moon's first visit since Venus left your career sector two weeks earlier, this will be a valuable chance to check in. The Moon will return to your work sector on Wednesday, with the lunar eclipse in the days leading up to this the perfect distraction. The biggest danger when the Moon returns each month is when your sixth sense picks up on the approach of important insight and starts filling in the blanks before that information is delivered. Fortunately, a playful lunar eclipse not only provides the perfect distraction but will leave you with a creative edge that will come in handy during what should be an important few days across the income, work and career fronts.
This week's lunar eclipse is the flip side of the coin to a total solar eclipse in your career sector two weeks earlier and while this is a different experience, they are both equally important. Unlike the solar eclipse two weeks earlier, when the Sun and Moon aligned to create an eclipsing New Moon, they will move into opposition to create this week's eclipsing Full Moon. With the Sun and Venus both in their last full week in your career sector and the lunar eclipse more focused on home and family matters, this is the ultimate clash between your home and professional lives. Where work/life balance tensions have been waxing and waning for the past month, this is a chance to finally get things out in the open. As this push back can create some real professional momentum, having the right work/life balance is an advantage and not a challenge. Mercury will retrograde back into your career sector on Friday, returning to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough.
Where there could be some frustration starting to kick in this week, the reason and the timing couldn't be better. When Mercury turned retrograde in your career sector last week he was aligned with Mars, so they were on the same page, connected and able to communicate with each other. It didn't matter so much that Mars had his foot on the gas and Mercury had his foot on the brake. A week on and Mars is trying to move forward and no longer aligned with Mercury, they are no longer connecting as easily. It is when Mercury retrogrades back out on Friday that everything held back will shoot forward and as Mars is here for another month and you have the Sun and Venus returning next week, you will quickly make up for lost time. Especially as this is not lost time, but with a valuable chance to spend time back at the drawing board, before rushing forward.
What focus there is on your professional game this week is low key but positive, with the professional gods still catching their breath ahead of Mars' return to your career sector next week and what this will unleash. By the end of next month the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will all be in your career sector and this professional year will have some serious traction. Until then with Uranus, the only planet currently in either of your two professional houses slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn in your work sector next month, the pace is more on the slow and steady side of the scale. However, what you should notice is a boost in job confidence and you should feel this fairly early in the week. This is partly because the reason for a drop in job confidence is no longer here and a lunar eclipse in your income sector will give this an added boost. It was some soul searching over the weekend that has already helped put things in perspective.
This is one week when a low key professional week is just what you need, especially as there will be a valuable chance to regroup in the second half of the week. Since Venus left your work sector earlier in the month, wrapping up not only her own 25 day visit but four months of planetary activity, from her position in your career sector the asteroid Pallas Athena is the only professional force in play. Here since November and keeping the wheels turning before new planetary activity kicks in from later next month, Pallas is happy to keep things on a slow and steady pace. And just as well, because this week's lunar eclipse in Capricorn could create a lot of emotional intensity, which the professional gods are happy to stay well clear of. However, it is just hours after the lunar eclipse that the Moon will return to your income sector on Wednesday. As the Moon's first visit since Venus left your work sector, this will be a valuable chance to check in across the income, work and career fronts.
While both the Sun and Venus will feel the pressure from this week's lunar eclipse, as this is the partner to a total solar eclipse on the job front two weeks earlier, this is the second half of the picture. The Moon will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Monday and after moving into opposition with Venus, will go on to oppose the Sun to create the eclipsing Full Moon. While this lunar eclipse will be more intense and emotionally charged than the planetary oppositions between these two areas of your chart over the last month, it has a familiar message. That message is knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. By the time the Moon returns to your income sector over the weekend and moves into a friendly aspect to the Sun and Venus in your work sector, Mercury will be back and things will be looking very different. By retrograding back in on Friday, Mercury's intellectually savvy edge and 20/20 hindsight will allow you to work smarter.
Within the space of just over 24 hours, the brakes will come off both job and career matters and while things will inch forward slowly on the career front, they are likely to shoot forward on the job front. That 24 hour period begins with Ceres' direct turn in your career sector on Thursday. While this is the start of a turnaround on the career front, with Jupiter still in retrograde motion there for a few more weeks, there will be just small signs of movement to start with. It is a very different story when Mercury retrogrades back out of your work sector on Friday. Since Mercury turned retrograde here last week he has had the brakes on, at the same time that Mars has had his foot on the gas, wanting to move things forward. With Mercury gone those brakes will come off and this is when work and job matters are likely to begin racing forward. With the Sun and Venus returning next week, once things start to move there will be no going back. Until then, Mercury is giving you a chance to spend some time back at the drawing board.
