Things may start off fairly low key on the income front, but by the time the Moon moves through your income sector from the 2nd March to the 4th March, there will be clues that this is about to change. It was Ceres' return to your income sector early last month that saw her return to a mission that had to be put on hold last year. That mission was to get to the heart of your income needs and priorities. With nothing happening on the income front, it made sense to put this on hold. This made Ceres' return early last month interesting, for if she was back it could mean only one thing that income opportunities were finally on the way. By the time the Moon leaves on the 4th March Ceres will have been here for nearly a month, leaving you with a nose for money and some clear objectives. Just six days later, Mars' return to your income sector on the 10th March will finally make all those preparations worthwhile. Mars is here to kick off the most lucrative months of 2017, months that won't run their course until July. Mars himself is only here until the 21st April, but with the Sun and Mercury both returning next month, they will continue what he starts, with Venus finally returning in June to ensure every last opportunity is extracted. From the get go Mars will give you the warrior spirit to fight for what you deserve. Yet it is the nearly six weeks that Ceres has spent here before Mars arrives, not to mention the three months she spent here last year, that will give you a sense of what you're fighting for from the get go.
While the most lucrative months of not just 2017 but in two years don't kick off until next month, this is something you've been working towards for months now. When things do kick off, income opportunities will continue to unfold right through to the end of July and include some of the most potentially lucrative conditions in over a decade. It will be Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos that kicks things off when he returns to your income sector next month, a visit he makes every other year, kicking off the most lucrative months in two years. However, it has been 36 years since Mars last returned to your income sector to find lucky Jupiter in your work sector. But that's next month, so what does that have to do with this month? You might still be waiting for income opportunities to open up, but already Jupiter is not only in your work sector but in retrograde motion, going back over ground already covered. The Sun and Mercury both only left your career sector last month, with plenty of focus and attention on getting this professional year up to speed. It's the professional momentum, all that has been invested over recent months and the job growth ahead that is already laying the foundations for income opportunities ahead. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 4th March to the 7th March will bring the nose for money that Jupiter in particular will need. In the meantime, while the professional gods are preparing for the income opportunities ahead the money gods are more focused on seeing you stick to your financial resolutions, keeping money matters on track. To this end there should be a growing sense of financial confidence, finding it relatively easy to stick to your financial objectives.
On paper this should be a fairly low key month for income and money matters. After a lunar eclipse in your income sector in January and after your annual financial review ran its course in early February, this is the point in your financial year when things will always fall back. Unlike income matters, which at the moment only has planets move through in the middle months of each year, money matters has long term support. Pluto, planet of change and revolution has been in your financial sector since 2008 and won't leave until 2024. That means, no matter what, the wheels will keep moving. When Mercury left in early February he wrapped up a two month visit. Normally there for just 15 days, Mercury spent a lot of time this year helping you to get your head in the game and work on your financial game plan and resolutions. A retrograde phase means that instead of quickly moving through, a visit that began in early December took over two months to run its course. That was the point where Pluto should have taken over, keeping the wheels turning but also keeping money matters vitalised. Pluto is the planet of change and revolution so doesn't believe in letting things stagnate. Yet it was in Mercury's final days that you had a surprise visitor in the form of Juno, queen of commitment, who returned for her first visit in four years. Here a pattern is emerging, for just as Mercury was reluctant to rush things, instead of staying her normal two to three months, Juno is here until December. While Pluto works to keep money matters evolving, fellow dwarf planet Juno will make it a lot easier this year to stick to your financial game plan and resolutions. You'll have a chance to get a read on money matters when the Moon moves through your financial sector from the 21st March to the 23rd March.
While the Sun will always spend the majority of the first three weeks of February in your financial sector and will therefore have just left your financial sector by the time you reach March, often this is still a work in progress. Venus and Mercury, who travel with the Sun, will often stay on in order to help you tie up loose ends. However Venus, who left back in early January, has long since gone and won't return until 2018 and even Mercury left in late February, not to return until 2018 either. This is early in the year to have money matters done and dusted. When you moved into March 2016 both Venus and Mercury were still here and in fact, the last time things were all over by the 1st March was in 2013. It was only back in 2012 that Neptune left, ending decades of continuous planetary activity. Yet with Mars having moved through late last year and Venus having begun the year here, you began the year with a head start, your financial confidence high and plenty of motivation. Mercury only left your financial sector in the later days of February and the Moon on the same day, so you will begin the month with a smart head for money and your financial instincts still sharp. Apart from the Moon, until new developments start to unfold on the income front in May, you're on your own. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 9th March to the 11th March will be especially important. Coming full circle from last month's lunar eclipse. Often what is triggered on a Full Moon comes to fruition when the Moon comes full circle. The timing is especially auspicious, for this will ensure that your nose for money is sharp as Mars leaves your career sector on the 10th March and during other developments at the time. You'll have a chance to get your financial bearings from the 23rd March to the 25th March.
The spotlight will always be on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of March in your financial sector that has always and will always be the case. This year a lot of water has already passed under the bridge and not just over recent months. In the closing days of February a solar eclipse here gave money matters a massive tailwind, creating an auspicious time for new beginnings. Yet this was the third solar eclipse here in as many years and the last for another 17 years. The current financial cycle has been underway for several years, but there was something about the solar eclipse late last month that suggested it was time to get money matters on track, once and for all. You began the year with Mars not only in your financial sector but aligned with dreamy Neptune, so with your financial dreams and passions literally aligned from the get go. Even Venus had spent a month here and had been and gone before the Sun returned. Mercury only returned in the later days of February, just a day before the solar eclipse. As you move into March you've only had Mercury's smart head for money to work with, for a few days. While the Sun will stay on until the 20th March, Mercury will leave on the 14th March, giving you just the first two weeks of the month to work on your financial game plan and resolutions. The Sun's departure will bring your annual financial review to an end, but you're not yet at the point where money matters settle back to the new normal. Venus will retrograde back in early next month for a rare double dip visit, spending another four weeks next month finalising money matters. It won't be a smart head for money that has the last word, but Venus and her financial desires and expectations. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 11th March to the 13th March will give you more than a nose for money, with a Full Moon on the 13th March bringing unexpected income potential during Mars' early days in your career sector.
Your financial sector is an area of your chart where there is continuous planetary activity. Especially since Uranus' return in 2010. Unlike other areas of your chart, which might be active for a few months every year, money matters will always have your attention in some form or other. However, the Sun's return in March will always bring a lot more focus, bringing your annual financial review. The Sun won't return until the 20th March, by which time a lot of water will have already passed under the bridge. The reason there is a lot more financial tension this year is that for the first time in 12 years lucky Jupiter is over on the other side of the sky in your income sector. After moving into opposition with Uranus at the end of last year, Jupiter and Uranus are back at odds again. This time Jupiter is in retrograde motion, with any pressure bringing a chance to push through old barriers, giving you access to untapped income potential. Most financial tension came to a head late last month and by mid March will be dialling right back. Yet from the get go it's clear that nothing is broken that needs fixing. There are big opportunities on both the financial and income fronts, with both sides benefiting. Until leaving your financial sector on the 10th March Mars will be fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit. Here he's giving you the confidence to make some bold financial moves, especially on the home, family and/or property fronts. However, don't feel pressured or rushed into anything. Venus will spend the whole of March in your financial sector, on the 4th March will turn retrograde, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential. Mercury's return on the 14th March will finally bring a smart head for money, with the Sun finally turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters from the 20th March. In reality you have the whole month to let things play out, with a New Moon on the 28th March an important time for finalising money matters.
While income matters that will always play out in the later months of each year might sometimes spill into the early part of the next year, money matters themselves don't usually come to the attention of the money gods until April. Even then, with the Sun not returning to your financial sector until around the 20th April each year, it's not until the later part of April. So to move into March with your money hat on and the focus on money matters is not the norm or that it has been for nearly a month by that point. To be fair the focus is fairly low key, but it is the stepping stone to something you won't need to wait until April for. Ceres, the dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system returned to your financial sector last July, but after three months retrograded back out. Ceres is a support planet, in that she doesn't trigger things in her own right and here, her focus is on updating your financial needs and priorities, so that when money matters move you'll know what you're working towards. With no likelihood of money matters moving in the second half of 2016, Ceres wisely put her visit on hold. The fact that Ceres returned early last month, was a sign that money matters were finally getting ready to move. And move they will when Mars returns to your financial sector on the 10th March. Mars won't leave until the 21st April, the day after the Sun returns so will be here from the 10th March right through to the start of your annual financial review, six weeks later. Mars is a planet of action, a planet that needs to make things happen and get things done. By the time Mars returns Ceres will have been here for nearly five weeks, ensuring that by the time Mars returns and fires up your financial passions and fighting spirit you know exactly what you're fighting for, with the battle lines already drawn.
Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and not a planet that you usually associate with support, your hero or your saviour, yet he is all things and more this month. In your income sector from December 2014 to December 2017, you're in the third and final year of what has been a massive boot camp. Yes, Saturn gives you the power to move mountains and here in your income sector the strength to take a bulldozer to glass ceilings, he demands that you take ownership and do things the hard way. Since returning in December 2014 Saturn has been moving slowly into an alliance with Uranus in your work sector, something that finally happened at the end of last year. Having spent two years coming together, this has created a bond between income and job forces that this month proves its weight in gold. It was in the alter days of February that the biggest, most dramatic and the intense triple alignment of work forces ever came together, just as work tension and job pressure was reaching fever pitch. Venus' retrograde turn on the 4th March will attempt to slow work matters down and will open the doors to the past, second chances and untapped potential, but until Mars leaves on the 10th March a near manic state and pace will exist on the work front. Tensions will start to ease back from the 3rd March, but Mars' departure will take the heat out of things. This is where support from Saturn comes in, allowing you to steer a strong and steady course through these volatile but opportune work conditions. This will ensure you never lose sight of where the money is, which will ensure you benefit from this financially, but you will also find it easier to work smarter. Work conditions will settle as the month progresses and as they do, Saturn will be there to ensure that where things go on the work front, the money will follow.
It was early last month that something subtle and phenomenal started to develop across the income, work and career fronts. It began a few days earlier, when the Chinese New Year ushered in the Year of the Rooster, an especially auspicious year for career and professional matters for Sagittarians. With Jupiter having just left your career sector last September and the North Node here until May, even if this did nothing more than provide a more favourable professional wind, there was already enough in the wind to benefit. This was just as Mercury was tying up loose ends on the income front, ready to leave you with a smart head for money and plenty of momentum. Yet just days before Mercury's departure and just days into the Year of the Rooster, Juno returned for her first visit to your income sector in four years. Normally back for two to three months Juno, queen of commitment will in fact remain until December. It was just days after Juno's return that fellow dwarf planet Ceres returned to your work sector to begin preparations for Mars' return on the 10th March. Individually developments on the income, work and career fronts, within the space of just eight days, weren't game changing, but collectively they have locked into place something that will remain in place for the rest of the year. Mars' return to your work sector on the 10th March will be the first fully fledged planetary influence, but kicking off months of expanding work opportunities and job growth, this will allow income opportunities to thrive, all while there is a favourable professional wind in effect. By the time the Moon moves through your income sector from the 21st March to the 23rd March Mars will be well established in your work sector. A nose for money will trigger what should be an auspicious few days across the income, work and career fronts.
For the first time in four years all the planetary activity in your income sector for the year is over by the 1st March, but only just and the end of planetary activity does not mean the end of the story. The Moon and Mercury left your income sector within minutes of each other in the final days of February, allowing you to start the month with a nose for money and a smart head for money from the get go. Mercury only left three days before you moved into March and the Sun just a week earlier, so your annual update has only just come to an end. The Sun will always leave your income sector around the 19th February each year, so will always be gone by now. However, Venus and Mercury, who will always travel with the Sun, will often stay back in order to help tie up loose ends. This year Venus is travelling ahead of schedule and while she was in your income sector as you moved into the year, she left in the early days of the New Year and won't be back until 2018, as will Mars who left just before Christmas. This front loaded your year, in that you began the year with a clear sense of what you're fighting for from the get go. For the first time in 12 years you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector and while there is no more planetary activity in your income sector, there is plenty of professional momentum to keep the money flowing. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 23rd March to the 25th March will bring the nose for money needed to check that you're still on the right trail. Likewise, the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 9th March to the 11th March will sharpen your financial instincts and give you an intuitive read on money matters.
The focus on income matters at this time of year is no surprise, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of March in your income sector. What might take you by surprise is the fact that by the 1st March you're already tying up loose ends. Having moved into the year with Mars in your income sector, by the time he left at the end of January you had already gained some real momentum. It was then that Mars was able to attack as many glass ceilings as possible, especially those in your own mind, knowing that there were plenty of planets to continue what he started. The most important planet was Venus, who spent from early January to early February in your income sector. This was Venus' earliest visit to your income sector in our lifetime and it is destined to have unexpected consequences. While Venus did eventually leave, a month after arriving she was already slowing down by then, forced to wait for the Sun to catch up. On the 4th March Venus will turn retrograde, a turn that will have big consequences on the income front when she returns for a double dip visit in early April. Venus will spend the majority of April here and it is then that she'll work to squeeze every last drop of income potential. Until then the Sun and Mercury bring things to a more practical phase. A solar eclipse late last month has created a huge amount of momentum, with the focus shifting to bringing things home. You will have Mercury and his smart head for money to work with until the 14th March, while the Sun will continue to shine the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options until the 20th March. With Venus not returning until the 4th April, her double dip visit phase is separate to the more mundane housekeeping the Sun is here to perfect. It is during Mercury's last full day that a Full Moon in your financial sector on the 13th March will bring both income and financial matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point.
It is said that there can never be too much of a good thing, but if there is a limit then you're flying fairly close to it and have been since mid February. On his own, having lucky Jupiter in your financial sector is a massive opportunity and in his financial and money matters in retrograde motion even has the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential. Not due to turn direct until early June, there is a lack of urgency and plenty of time to explore your options. It has been 12 years since you last had lucky Jupiter in your financial sector, so this is a big deal. At the same time, the month begins on the heels of a major triple alignment of income forces. A triple alignment of Mars, Uranus and Eris not only brought the potential for a major income breakthrough, but brought everything that has been building over the short, medium and long term together. This is the first and only time this will ever happen anywhere in your lifetime, let alone your income sector. With Venus not only in your income sector as well, but from the 4th March in retrograde motion, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential, this is a stunning month for income opportunities. There is a catch and a very big catch, which is why you are flying very close to too much of a good thing being too much. It was late last month that Jupiter moved into opposition and because Mars, Uranus and Eris were aligned, this wasn't just a triple conjunction, but a triple opposition as well. This brought your biggest income opportunities in a lifetime into conflict with the best financial conditions in a lifetime and in the process created some real financial tension and pressure. This is still running high but will start to ease back from the 3rd June. This is just a day before Venus turns retrograde and with Jupiter also in retrograde motion you will have the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the income and financial fronts at the same time. This is when Venus and Jupiter, the planets of money and luck will begin turning all these volatile income and financial forces into an opportunity for a breakthrough. The heat will ease back when Mars leaves your career sector on the 10th March and the turning point will come with Mercury's return on the 14th March, bringing a smart head for money into play. By the time the Sun returns on the 20th March you should have this under control, in time for a New Moon on the 28th Marc
