Monthly Career Horoscopes - June 2017
Things take an extremely quiet turn this week, with the professional gods bringing one of, if not the quietest month in two years. Those words alone show just how important that is, for if you haven't had a quiet professional month in two years then this is what you desperately need. Pluto is in your career sector from 2008 to 2024, so the professional wheels will continue to turn year in and year out. This means you are in no danger of losing your professional momentum. However, Pluto will also spend from April to September in retrograde motion, giving you a chance to pull back, spend time back at the drawing board and review where things stand. When you have a planet in your career sector for 16 years you need that review phase. While that has still been the case, from when things started to move on the job front in June 2015, there hasn't been a month since that you haven't had to have your work hat on, always on top of your game and always looking ahead. For the past two years this meant you haven't been able to make the most of Pluto's retrograde phase. This was good news for work and job matters, but for most of us work and job matters will only be active for a few months each year, not constantly for nearly two years. That changed when the North Node left your work sector on the 10th May, ironically on the same day that Juno turned retrograde in your career sector. In one fell swoop you were able to take your work hat off and embrace this review phase. This is the first full month of your first proper review phase in two years and boy do you need it. The Moon will spend the first and last two days of June in your work sector. This will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters, with a chance to ensure you're still in the loop. Plan for a quieter month and seize any chance to step back.
It has between 36 years since you last had Jupiter in your work sector and the South Node in your career sector at the same time, something you're still adjusting to. What has made this transition easier, until now, is that Jupiter is in retrograde motion. The South Node will also be in opposition with the North Node and on the 10th May they moved into your home and career sectors. For the next 18 months this will police a balance between your home and professional lives. However, while the North Node is always focused on the future, the South Node is focused on the past. This is giving you access to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential, at a time when Jupiter's retrograde phase has the doors open to the past and second chances on the job front. That will change when Jupiter turns direct on the 10th June, but to me the date is suspicious. This is exactly a month to the day after the South Node's return and after it and Jupiter have worked together to hold the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped job and professional potential. What is likely to happen is that while Jupiter's direct turn will usher in a major turnaround on the job front, with new opportunities for job growth opening up, the South Node will keep those old doors open. Jupiter's direct turn comes right in the heart of an active month for income matters, with a turnaround on the job front ushering in not only months of job growth, but some of the most lucrative months of the year. What is clear is that the work tension and job pressure of recent months hasn't followed you into the new month.
After last month's Full Moon in your work sector, things ease back this month and there is literally a chance to step back. It was the South Node's departure from your career sector on the 10th May that took the restrictions off career and professional matters. This took away the hold that the past had on career matters and also the subtle professional pressure and work/life balance tensions of the past two years. Yet ironically, just as the past lets go its hold on you there is a chance to retrace your steps. If the 18 months that the South Node spent in your career sector has left behind untapped professional potential, then there will be a chance to find it. The South Node's departure gave Neptune, in your career sector until 2026 and Chiron, here until 2019, the green light. Yet both are slowing down, with Neptune turning retrograde on the 16th June and Chiron on the 1st July. The difference this time is you are not tied to the past and it is not the past holding you back. Instead, this is a chance to retrace your steps, exploring all the untapped potential that has been stockpiling over the last 18 months. Since Chiron returned to your career sector in 2010 and Neptune in 2012 they have turned retrograde each June, so this is part of a scheduled review phase. This will run through to November and will be in effect with major new job developments opening up in October. In the meantime, this brings you to a quieter and more reflective point on your professional year. All the action this month is on the income front.
You finally reach a point in the early part of the month when the focus on the career front moves back to the big picture. This has been an almost manic professional year, one that hasn't yet brought that chance you normally get to catch your breath. With Uranus in your career sector since 2010 and Saturn in your work sector since 2014 you're used to having your work and professional hats on 24/7, but not to the extent you've needed to this year. The Sun will typically move through your career sector from the 21st March to the 20th April, give or take a day either side. Because Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, but can arrive later or earlier, things can often kick off in early March or even February and on the other side can extend out to May. This year things kicked off with Mars' return just before Christmas and as for trailing off after the Sun's departure? Well, you're still waiting for that. By the time Venus finally leaves your career sector on the 6th June you'll have been in the fast lane for nearly six months. Saturn, in retrograde motion in your work sector, has been trying to pull things back. Any work tension and job pressure last month and especially in the later part of the month, was Mars helping to apply the brakes as well. By the time Venus eventually leaves on the 6th June, she'll have spent the majority of the last four months here. Even the four weeks she took off was when the Sun moved through, so there was no break. When Venus leaves the reins will go back to Uranus, who here until March 2019 is, like Saturn, playing a long game. Finally, with a huge amount of momentum under your belt you should be able to find a more manageable pace.
While the Sun left your career sector on the 21st May, as he does at that time every year, it is not uncommon to still have planets that have stayed behind in order to tie up loose ends. What is not the norm is to still be waiting for planets to arrive. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your career sector, shining the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options at the same time every year. However Mercury and Venus, who will always travel with the Sun, aren't on such a ridged schedule and will return during, before or after the Sun. This year Mercury returned three weeks before the Sun, but retrograded back out during his first full day here, only to return in the Sun's final days. So when the Sun left last month Mercury stayed on, keeping your head in the game and the wheels turning. This is where things stand as you move into the new month. What is not the norm is for Venus yet to return. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus will finally return to your career sector on the 6th June. Still not up to speed, instead of moving through in her normal 24 days, she won't leave until the 5th July. This gives Venus a month to exploit all the potential the other planets have already created, as well as attract new opportunities. Mercury's departure on the 7th June will leave you with an intellectually savvy edge, but it then becomes Venus' game. Expect the month from the 6th June to the 5th July to be one of, if not the best month of this professional year. This is thanks to all the groundwork that has already gone on. All Venus has to do is attract the opportunities.
June is always the month when things are going to move on the career front, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your career sector. This year things kicked off a month earlier and in a lot more dramatic fashion. By the time the Sun returned on the 21st May Mars had already been here for a month. Without the Sun's reality checks, Mars has been able to fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and also a lot of hot headed enthusiasm. More importantly Mars has not been on his own, not since Ceres returned on the 30th April. This is the first time in 23 years that they have been here at the same time and that's a game changer. Mars would have you chase success out of the pure competitive rush alone. Whether you're chasing after the prize that matters doesn't really concern Mars, as long as there is an outlet for his professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Ceres' sole job during her first visit to your career sector in four years is to redefine your definition of professional success. Ceres is on a quest to establish what you crave, looking less at success or outcomes and more to a sense of purpose. The professional path you take has to mean something, with a need to feel fulfilled and to make a difference. This has given Mars something to fight for and has given those professional needs a champion. By the time the Sun returned this was already well established. Mars will leave on the 5th June and with Mercury returning on the 7th June this is when a more strategic phase kicks in. With Jupiter turning direct in your income sector on the 10th June and the South Node spending its first full month in your work sector in 17 years, your professional year is starting to get interesting.
There is a fairly significant shift in the dynamics of your professional year this month and it all takes place within an 11 day period from the 5th June to the 16th June. The 16th June is when Neptune will turn retrograde in your work sector, taking work and job matters into a review phase that will run through to November. Until now the whole focus of your professional year has been on your work situation and job matters. It began with Mars' return on the 19th December and an active push didn't end until the 29th April. It was the South Node's departure from your work sector last month that gave work and job matters the green light. However that green light leads work and job matters into a review phase this month. Here they will take a back seat until November, auspiciously the first full month of what will be your most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade. This leaves the way clear for career matters to have their turn. Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector in January and then the Moon's monthly visits, there has been no focus on career and professional matters as a whole. This had left the field clear for work and job matters to grow, but now it's the turn of career matters. That shift begins with Mars' return to your career sector on the 5th June, with his first visit in two years kicking things off on the career front, 16 days before the Sun and Mercury return on the 21st June. There is a lot Mars can do in 16 days, especially with his professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit fuelled with hot headed enthusiasm and not a reality check in sight. This is a chance to get excited about the options and get a sense of what excites you before moving into a more strategic phase.
With Venus leaving your work sector on the 6th June, just as the North Node is spending its first full month in your career sector in 17 years, you know this is no ordinary month. Just having Venus still in your work sector at this time of year is remarkable. The last time Venus was still here at the start of June was in 2009. And when you consider that she returned for what should have been a 24 day visit in early February that is even more remarkable. This has all been because of Venus' retrograde phase, one that saw her spend two months in your work sector before retrograding back out. With the first month in direct and second in retrograde, this saw Venus retrace the same steps for a second time. This also meant that when she returned four weeks later she then retraced the same steps for the third time. It was only in the second half of May that Venus finally reached ground she hadn't crossed before. Importantly that was the ground where the big boys play and here she was able to align with the major forces that will keep the wheels turning on the job front long after she's gone. In the meantime, the North Node's return to your career sector last month has created the potential for major and fateful new career growth. The full implications won't be felt until a total solar eclipse here in August, but the forces behind what this might trigger are already in play. With Saturn in your income sector until December 2017, the North Node in your career sector until November 2018 and Uranus in your work sector until March 2019, things will continue to unfold across the income, work and career fronts for a long time. A Full Moon in your income sector on the 10th June could have ripples across all three fronts.
It is not unheard of to move into June with things still playing out on the job front. The Sun will always leave your work sector on or around the 20th May each year. However Venus and Mercury, who travel with the Sun, aren't on such a tight schedule and will often arrive before, during or even after the Sun's month long visit. What is not the norm, however, is still to be waiting for a planet to return. If anything June and early July in particular might be a time for finishing things off, but not for kick starting anything new. Mercury was in your work sector before the Sun returned last month, but retrograded back out during his first full day. Mercury returned during the Sun's final days, so was there for the start and end of the Sun's month long visit. With Mercury still here, you're not only able to move into the month with your head in the game and your work hat on from the get go, but with a lot of experience under your belt. A parade of planets have moved through your work sector since early February, a parade that includes Ceres, Mars, Mercury, the Sun and from the 6th June Venus. Yet because Mercury won't leave until the 7th June, just 15 hours after Venus' return, he is the only planet that has spent time with every other planet visiting this year. Mercury is the sole repository off all that experience and knowledge gained over the past four months. And when he leaves on the 7th June Mercury will pass that all onto Venus. Not due to leave until the 5th July, Venus' sole purpose is to attract opportunities, something you've spent the last four months preparing for.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your work sector, which is about the only thing that you could consider the norm this month. Everything else is in the extraordinary category. This was from the moment the Sun returned to your work sector on the 21st May. By then Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos, had already been here a month, firing things up on the job front. Not only that, in the days leading up to the Sun's return Mars was aligned with Jupiter in your career sector, for the first time here in 36 years. When the Sun returned to your work sector it was to find Jupiter in your career sector for the first time in 12 years, but for Mars this had been 36 years. Jupiter was under pressure at the time and a week later Mars was under pressure. This has created a sense of camaraderie between the planets of luck and war that will continue into the early days of the month. While the Sun is taking a more staid approach to work and job matters, Mars is firing up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. A lot of that hot headed enthusiasm will ease back when Mars leaves on the 5th June. But not due to return to your work sector for another two years and not due to find Jupiter in your career sector at the same time until 2041, Mars will be working to make his final days count. This will boost your professional confidence during Jupiter's final days in retrograde motion and in the lead up to his direct turn on the 10th June. This will bring you to a major turning point in his professional year. Work and job matters will continue to unfold until late August and career matters until December.
That there has been no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this year is the norm. Last year, when Mars spent the first seven months of 2016 moving into, out of and back into your career sector, was the exception to the rule. What you can't know, in the early days of the month, is that once things start to move that it will be another three years before they quieten down again. An explosion of job and career developments over the coming years will continue through to May 2020. So as you move into the new month and once again find, well nothing, make the most of it, knowing it won't last. You have just four days to enjoy the quieter pace, for once it's gone it will be three years before it's back. The planet that will not only kick things off for the year, but this incredible domino effect over the coming months and years is Mars, with his return to your work sector on the 5th June. Mars becomes the first planet in either of your two professional houses this year and is the first planet to kick things off. Mars will only beat the Sun and Mercury by 16 days, but the warrior planet of the cosmos can do a lot in 16 days. The Sun and Mercury will both return on the 21st June, kicking off a more objective period. Mars is pure hot headed enthusiasm, with a chance to throw yourself into the things that excite you without a need for reality checks or to over thinking things. What Mars kicks off on the 5th June will take until late September to play out, bringing you to just days from Jupiter's return to your career sector and the start of your biggest professional year in over a decade. This is the first stepping stone to a massive period of job and professional growth.
As you move into the new month the professional pressures and work/life balance tensions that came to a head late last month are just easing back. You might still be reeling, but as far as Mars and Saturn are concerned, they are both energised from their battle in the closing days of May. Until he leaves your home and family sector on the 5th June Mars is firing things up on the home front and is not happy about Saturn and his professional focus encroaching on your home and family life. Saturn is not about to be swayed by Mars and with so much support across the income, work and career fronts, carries on regardless. This saw an immovable object go head to head with an unstoppable force. This was a collision that brought professional pressures and work/life balance tension to a head, making them impossible to avoid. There will be other clashes this month, but when the Sun and Mercury move into opposition this month they will be a lot more malleable, open to compromise and sorting out some resolutions. Mars' job was to blow the lid off any work/life balance issues, something that once delivered he'll lose interest in. This won't impact on your professional confidence, but with Saturn in retrograde motion in your career sector this is a timely reminder to pace yourself. A bond of support between income, work and career forces is already turning any wakeup calls into motivation.
