In astrology there are three houses that affect your career. The second house governs your income; the sixth house deals with the day-to-day routine at the office; and the tenth is all about climbing the ladder, getting kudos and fulfilling your ambitions. This week both the second and sixth houses are in the spotlight.
Here’s the scoop: unpredictable Uranus, now situated in your income sector, is scheduled to go retrograde this Friday. What does this mean for you? Decision makers who can boost your earnings may be flakier than usual. They can be difficult to pin down, hard to contact, slow to make decisions or vacillate between saying “yes, we’ll hire you” and “no, we won’t”. Obviously if you can get a client or prospective boss to sign on the dotted line before Friday the better off you’ll be.
Both Sunday and Wednesday are excellent for talking turkey with decision makers, as the planets create powerful trines (the best angle possible) both days. Wednesday is the better of the two, even though the energy of Sunday’s event can carry over into Monday. Just be advised that on Monday a difficult aspect arises in which the amount of money you’d like to see may be less than what is on the table. Whether you hold out for more is up to you, but once Uranus goes retro on Friday there could be delays.
Tuesday, however, is excellent for talks, as the Moon enters your house of communication. The next 48 hours or so are excellent for making presentations to bosses, prospective bosses and clients. Try to clinch the deal on Wednesday when Mercury trines Uranus. You could be at the receiving end of a surprise offer you didn’t see coming.
But co-workers could be royal pain in the patoot on Friday when Mercury squares Mars. You’re thinking big and bold, courtesy of Mars’s influence in your expansive ninth house, but the little people at the office can’t see the forest for the trees. Or they can, but your energy and enthusiasm makes them a little nervous—and jealous.
However, you’ll be able to swing them over to your point of view as the next three weeks progress. Silver-tongued Mercury enters your sixth house, enabling you to make a convincing case for your story. And if they can’t appreciate your work ethic, your clients and the boss will. Get ready to impress.
