To begin with the not having Saturn in your financial sector is huge, with the hard taskmaster of the cosmos having returned in June to finish off a financial boot camp that had begun in October 2012, only to be put on hold since last Christmas. How tough Saturn's 3 month catch up was depended on how much financial housekeeping was required, with the money gods determined to see you take your power back and deal with financial matters head on. This was less about any financial matters, issues or challenges you may have gone through over recent years and especially over recent months and more about what you've learned from those experiences, with Saturn's aim being to put the reins of your financial destiny firmly in your hands. While the Sun will return to your financial sector on the 24th October to begin your annual financial review, coming so soon after the toughest financial years in decades have just run their course, this will be a walk in the park and a chance to create a new starting point. The money gods favour a chance to let things settle until the Sun returns and even then, with Mercury not returning until later next month, Venus not returning until December and Mars having his biggest impact in 2018 to slowly get a feel for just how much experience, wisdom and resilience you have to call on. It's later in the month that a Full Moon in your income sector on the 28th October will create the potential for a real breakthrough on the income front, something that has been building ever since things started coming together on the work front and since the professional tide turned last month. Even before then, moving into the month with the Moon in your income sector, the professional tide having just turned and Jupiter and Mars in your work sector, you'll have a nose for money from the get go.
While the money gods will be keeping a keen eye on income matters, for the most part this will be more about untapped potential as things come together on the work front, with the Moon's two visits to your income sector providing both a nose for money and some valuable wakeup calls. Maybe it's because the money gods are undoubtedly putting all their focus onto money matters this month that the Moon, knowing it's punching above his weight, will make these two visits so memorable. Moving through from the 2nd October to the 4th October this will give you a nose for money in the early days of the month, just as the Sun is holding the doors open to new work opportunities and Mercury the doors to the past and second chances. By the time the Moon returns from the 29th October to the 31st October you should notice some real progression on the work front. Yet apart from those two high points, times when you need to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, trusting what a nose for money is telling you, the money gods will be working to make Saturn's first full month back in your financial sector count. Having returned on Christmas Eve for the first time since 1988 Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos gave you a chance to get a feel for what the money gods want you to focus on, before retrograding back out in June. Having returned this month and not due to leave until the end of 2017, Saturn is back in the game and demanding that you do the same. You've reached the most important point in 3 decades for taking your power back, dealing with financial matters head on and sweeping nothing under the carpet. This is less about what is or isn't resolved, accomplished or tackled and more about what you're able to learn along the way. Like it or not you're enrolled in financial boot camp for the next few years, with a need to see this as a chance to take your power back.
While all the planetary activity in your income sector ran its course when Mars left your income sector in August, all the untapped potential left in the wake of some very active months is now in the hands of the professional gods, who to start with favour a slow and steady approach. From Saturn's departure from your work sector last month to the Sun's return on the 24th October there's a chance to ease back and let things unfold, at the same time that Neptune and Chiron's last full month in retrograde motion in your career sector is doing the same. With income matters in the safe hands of the professional gods and plenty of untapped potential and momentum to keep things ticking over, this frees the money gods up to focus on financial and money matters as a whole, where this month a turnaround is well underway and a new sense of confidence is emerging. Pluto, in your financial sector from 2008 to 2024 will always spend from April to September of each year in retrograde motion, with October always the month when money matters are coming out of hibernation, but where there's little hurry or urgency. That's still the case, however this year you're emerging with a much clearer sense of your real financial priorities, having had a chance to get past the money, which at the end of the day is simply a means to an end, to your real priorities. There is another difference this year, in that there is a bold new sense of confidence, one that might not yet transform into anything concrete but is already inspiring your imagination. You're starting to look outside the box and imagine what can be, something that the money gods fully support. There'll be a chance over the coming months to back wishful thinking up with more tangible steps, but that will come later.
While it's not unheard of to still have planetary activity in your income sector in October, especially the faster moving planets, this is usually because they have been held up somewhere else and have been late to return. The Sun will always move through your income sector from around the 23rd July to the 23rd August each year and with Venus and Mercury always alongside, just ahead or just behind July, August and sometimes into the early weeks of September will always be the most active months of any year for income matters, unfortunately during what are usually the least active points of any year professionally. Uranus, in your career sector until 2019, will always be in retrograde motion at this time of year and with the Sun not returning to your work sector until late November each year this is not usually a busy time of year for work matters, something you need to really bring income opportunities home. As you've probably guessed by now this is no ordinary year and not only will you move into the month with Venus still in your income sector, but with a total lunar eclipse in your career sector having run its course less than 24 hours earlier, while Saturn is spending his first full month back in your work sector. It's not that Venus is late to the party, for having returned on the 6th June for what should have been a 24 day visit she should have been long gone. Venus will leave on the 9th October, but has managed to hold on long enough for the professional gods to come together, ensuring that as a major new work chapter opens up and things come together professionally, income opportunities come along for the ride. While it's later in the month that you'll have a chance to focus on money matters, even after Venus leaves untapped income potential will transfer into the safe hands of the professional gods.
By this time last year the Sun, who will always leave your income sector around the 23rd September was gone and Venus, the last planet to move through for the year was also gone. Fast forward a year and yes, the Sun's annual visit is once more just over, but in terms of income potential you haven't even begun to tap into what's possible. Mars, who didn't return to your income sector at all last year, has been here since the 25th September and not due to leave until November he'll spend the whole of October plotting ways to not only break through any glass ceilings in your way, but dynamite them to smithereens. At the same time Venus, who last year left your income sector on the 30th September, won't return until the 9th October, on a mission to not only raise the bar on your income desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement but to trigger the laws of attraction. If that was it, having Venus and Mars in your income sector would have made this one of the most potentially lucrative months in years, but you've got lucky Jupiter on board for the first time since 2004. While Jupiter returned to your income sector on the 11th August, it's only now that you're starting to sense that your luck really has turned. Both Venus and Mars will not only align with Jupiter this month, creating some of the most auspicious income conditions in a decade, but all three are working closely with work forces, where a real turnaround is underway. It's in the final days of the month that a Full Moon in your career sector will bring income, work and career forces together in a powerful and potentially game changing way. Yet while this is an exciting month for income matters, growth and opportunities and a gateway month into some lucrative times ahead, a financial review continues behind the scenes.
The focus is always going to be on income matters at this time of year, due to the fact that come what may, the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your income sector. Not due to leave until the 24th October, the Sun is not only shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options, but on the road ahead. With the North Node, a force that has been keeping income matters on track since early last year, spending its last full month in your income sector, together they're cementing a short and long term sense of direction. Yet not all eyes are on the road ahead with Mercury, in your income sector since late August, in retrograde motion until the 10th October, with his smart head for money coming with 20/20 hindsight and a chance to spend time back at the drawing board, focused on second chances and untapped potential. Having returned on the 28th August for what should have been a 15 day visit Mercury should be long gone, but even after turning direct he's here until early next month and in retrograde or direct motion is giving you an extraordinary amount of time to work with his smart head for money. Mercury will be here when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 11th October to the 14th October, creating a New Moon on the 13th October that brings an opportunity for a fresh start, new opportunities and beginnings. Mercury will also be here when the Sun leaves on the 24th October and when unexpected developments open up on the work front from the 28th October. Yet with a lunar eclipse in your financial sector late last month there's a more subtle but constant focus on money matters, where you've also got 20/20 hindsight to draw on, as well as Eureka moments.
Saturn's departure from your income sector last month brought a massive 3 year journey to an end, one designed to leave you with a clear sense of what you're worth, a belief in yourself and the means to break through any glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind, not to mention a huge amount of momentum. Not due to return for another 27 years, but a journey that began in October 2012 having just ended, you've created the platform for all income growth and success for months, years and decades to come. All you're waiting for now is the right triggers, which will come later in the month. It's the Sun's return to your income sector on the 24th October that will begin a more mundane annual update, but coming on the heels of the years Saturn spent laying down the foundations for future growth, this will open the door to some lucrative months, months that will take until mid 2016 to run their course. Until the Sun returns to your income sector on the 24th October you've got no planetary activity in either of your two money houses and a real opportunity to take your money hat off and let things settle. It's in the later days of the month that the money gods are particularly active and not just because of the Sun's position in your income sector from the 24th October, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. For it's just 3 days later that the Moon's return to your financial sector from the 27th October to the 29th October will not only sharpen your financial instincts and put the focus on money matters, but will create a Full Moon here on the 28th October. Falling halfway between your last financial update and the next and so soon after Saturn's departure from your income sector and the Sun's return, this Full Moon has the power to bring income and financial matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point.
Moving into the new month with Saturn in your income sector puts you back into the powerful position you began the year with, this time with a huge amount of professional momentum and mileage travelled since then. On Christmas Eve Saturn returned to your income sector for the first time since 1988, on a mission to see you take your power back but also to completely redefine your value system, giving you the power to not only fight for what you want and deserve, but to recognise what that is. Saturn gives you the power to move mountains if you have to and to bulldoze your way through glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind. However, after less than 6 months in your income sector Saturn retrograded back out in June, with a promise that he'd return, which he did last month. It was during the 3 months that Saturn was absent that the professional gods really came into their own, with lucky Jupiter's final months in your career sector coming together with work forces to create a huge amount of professional momentum. It's as though the money gods purposely stood back, knowing that in order to achieve the major income breakthroughs possible you've first got to bring things together professionally. When Saturn returned to your income sector last month it was just as Mars was moving into his final week in your career sector and just 10 days before a lunar eclipse in your work sector, something that only just ran its course less than 24 hours before moving into the new month. This month it's the professional gods that take a step back, with Venus wrapping things up on the career front until the 9th October but then Uranus, in retrograde motion in your work sector, taking a more background role. While income, work and career forces are still working as a team, this is the point where income forces take the lead, a lead they'll maintain right through to the end of 2017.
While it was last month that the tides turned on the income front, it's this month that there's likely to be some real evidence, something that is not usually the case at this time of year. Pluto, in your income sector from 2008 to 2024, is the force that in this period of life governs the annual pattern of income forces and in retrograde motion from April to September he's just come out of hibernation. This will always happen either while the Sun is moving through your career sector or just after he's left, this year 3 days later, but then things usually ease back in October. By the end of September 2014 all the planets that were going to visit your career sector, or either of your two professional houses for that matter, had been and gone and with the Sun not returning to your income sector until December you had 2 months to slowly get your bearings and for income matters to start slowly gaining some momentum. This year couldn't be more different, for with lucky Jupiter in your career sector until September 2016 and Mars returning on the same day that Pluto turned direct in your career sector, the tide turned on the income front just as a major professional chapter gained some serious momentum. With income and career forces intertwined and staying that way through to mid 2018, as things take off professionally, income forces that shouldn't come into their own for another 2 weeks are getting a free ride and a fast track. This is the start of a partnership between income and career forces that will run for years not months, cementing further by Venus' return to your career sector on the 9th October.
October is not a month that the money gods pay much attention to, with all the planetary activity in your financial sector for the year usually running its course by September and the spotlight not usually falling onto income matters until January, with the early months of each year the most important for income matters. However, this is a year where there is no such thing as the norm, for with lucky Jupiter in your financial sector since last July, Venus here for 4 months instead of 4 weeks and income forces that should have run their course by February still in play in early August, 'normal' went out the window a long time ago. On the 4th August Ceres, in your income sector for an incredible 4 months retrograded back out, just as Jupiter was moving into his final week in your financial sector and the money gods were rushing to make money matters a priority. This dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system rightly realised this wasn't the time to focus on income matters, so took herself out of the game, waiting for the right moment to return. With Jupiter and Mars gone from your financial sector, but their momentum now banked, Venus is still here in the early days of the month, tying up loose ends and putting money matters on the course they will continue on. From Venus' departure from your financial sector on the 9th October you'll have a chance to take your money hat right off, letting things settle before Ceres returns to your income sector on the 28th October, putting the focus back onto income matters and triggering a period of continuous support from the money gods that will continue unbroken through to April 2016. This creates a month where the early days are all about money matters as a whole, the final days are all about income matters and you have this period from the 10th October to the 28th October where you're able to take your money hat right off, letting things settle as the money gods get ready to shift their focus from financial matters and onto income matters.
While the Sun's departure from your financial sector on the 23rd September brought your annual financial review to an end and in most years that brings the money gods involvement for the year to an end, this year they're only getting started, but at a whole new level. It was on the 11th August that lucky Jupiter returned to your financial sector, but due to the fact that the Sun and Mercury were not only moving through at the time, but were at odds with income forces, creating some financial tension over recent months, this was shrouded by the fog of war. You needed those reality checks, for it has allowed you to create a more authentic starting point, something that you're now ready to build on from. While Neptune and Chiron are still in your income sector and continue to play devil's advocate to financial forces and a series of oppositions will bring financial tensions to a head again, they are very different to previous oppositions. When Mars, moving through your financial sector, moves into opposition with Neptune on the 6th/8th October and Chiron on the 23rd October, this is likely to fuel your financial passions and fighting spirit, creating some real motivation on both fronts. With Venus returning to your financial sector on the 9th October to fuel your financial desires and expectations and trigger the laws of attraction, any financial tension this month will very quickly turn into motivation on both fronts. The last time you had Jupiter, Venus and Mars, the planets of luck, money and passion together in your financial sector was in 2004 and back then you didn't have Neptune in your income sector, which you do this time and in his last full month in retrograde motion this is the push that untapped income opportunities need.
With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your financial sector the solar spotlight will always be on financial and money matters at this time of year, but usually in a way that is all about the here and now and the road ahead. With the North Node, a force that has been keeping your financial focus on the future and your most auspicious path forward since February 2014, due to leave your financial sector next month, this has put even more focus on where you're going. Yet with Mercury in retrograde motion in your financial sector until the 9th October and Uranus in retrograde motion in your income sector until December, the money gods are also keeping one eye on the road behind. It was a lunar eclipse in your income sector at the end of last month that having only just run its course on the 30th September is giving untapped income opportunities and potential some real momentum from the get go, just as things are coming together professionally. However, for the most part income forces will take a backseat, knowing that they have literally years to bring things together with Uranus, in your income sector until 2019, forging a powerful partnership with Saturn, in your career sector until the end of 2017. More urgent are money matters, for with the Sun leaving your financial sector on the 24th October and Mercury early next month, a New Moon here on the 13th October brings an opportunity to draw a new line in the sand. With Mercury's smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight to draw on, the Sun's reality checks and the North Node's sense of direction, this is a chance to take charge of money matters. On the income front, with the laws of synchronicity in effect there's a need for a more hands off approach, with fate creating unexpected opportunities and developments, especially when it comes to untapped potential.
