The early weeks of July are an adjustment and review period on both the income and financial fronts, granting you a period of grace where you can let things settle and get your bearings without any urgent need to take action. The fact that this will have changed dramatically by the end of the month makes this even more important. While Venus left your income sector on the 24th June, wrapping up all the planetary activity for the year, that was just a week before you moved into July and after a 2 month period of planetary activity you're still processing the intentions, desires and expectations this left you with. This coincides with Saturn's financial weeks in retrograde motion in your financial sector and while the money gods have shifted all their focus onto financial and money matters as a whole, leaving income matters in your hands, with Saturn slowing down to a crawl there is no urgency. Instead, until Saturn turns direct on the 21st July, the first 3 weeks of July are the most important weeks of financial review all year, making it important to spend more time at the drawing board than taking action. While that will change to a degree when Saturn turns direct, all that will do to start with is shift your focus from the rear view mirror to the road ahead. The real change will happen 5 days later, when on the 26th July Mars will return to your financial sector to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and to get things moving.
It's not unusual to still have planetary activity in your income sector as you move into July, for even though the Sun left on the 21st June, as is often the case, Venus and Mercury have stayed behind to tie up loose ends, with Mercury's smart head for money and Venus' desires and expectations and the laws of attraction she triggers ensuring no stone has been left unturned. In the early days of the month there is no urgency, for with the Moon having just recently left your income sector, Mercury in retrograde motion until the 2nd July and Venus having only returned a week earlier, these early days are more about getting your bearings. To start with you've got Mercury's smart head for money and hindsight to work with, giving you time to spend back at the drawing board. The real urgency comes when Mercury turns direct on the 2nd July, for with Mercury leaving on the 13th July, Venus on the 19th July and Mars leaving your work sector on the 26th July, it really is time to tie up loose ends and bring things home. Whether you get to bring home the bacon this month or not, what you're doing is defining your income expectations and a game plan for the coming year. However, as the planet of money, desire and attraction Venus will be doing her best to attract some more immediate income opportunities. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 22nd July to the 24th July will be the point where you need to be ready to draw a line in the sand, both on the income and work fronts.
That the money gods are focused on income matters as you move into the new month is not only not unusual, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of July in your income sector, this will always be the case. The difference this year is how extreme that focus is and also how much water has passed under the bridge since the Sun was here last year and the fact that in all that time things never went off the boil. However, what you've come to is the end of the line, with your annual income update and review overlapping the end of Jupiter's 12 month visit, which comes to an end on the 16th July. From that point it's all about tying up loose ends, seizing all the opportunities and potential this has created and setting things on the course you want them to continue on. Things won't end with Jupiter or with the Sun when he leaves your income sector on the 23rd July and in fact, it's not until after they both leave that everything is likely to come together and you're likely to find out just how advantageous having the planet of luck and expansion spend a year here has been. It was always going to be a case that Mercury's return on the 13th July and Venus' on the 19th July would bring the smart head for money and the laws of attraction needed to bring things home, but it's what happens while they are here that seals the deal. It's on the 26th July, a week to the day after Venus returns that Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos will return to your work sector, giving stalled work matters the push they need to start generating the income potential that will be waiting for the right trigger.
There is nothing unusual about moving into the new month with no planetary activity in either of your money houses, for that has been your reality since Venus left your financial sector in April. However, you will move into the new month with the Moon in your income sector, who having been here since the 29th June will spend until the 2nd July giving you a nose for money and some valuable clues, hunches and insights. Normally this is as far as the Moon's monthly visits go, a welcome chance to get your bearings but nothing more. In this case don't be surprised if this triggers some anxiety or even a crisis of confidence, for it's likely that there'll be a mismatch between what your gut and your head are telling you, triggering a sense of anticipation and excitement that could easily be misread as anxiety. For what you have is the Moon's last visit to your income sector before lucky Jupiter returns on the 16th July to kick off your luckiest and most lucrative income and earnings year in over a decade. Jupiter will get there a week before the Sun returns for your annual income update on the 23rd July, but unlike the Sun and both Mercury and Venus, who will return to your income sector next month, Jupiter won't love you and leave you, he's here to stay. Not due to leave your income sector until August 2015, Jupiter has returned to completely turn your fortunes around and while he has a year to do it, the Moon's last visit prior to his arrival will have you excited about the options this opens the door to.
It's next month that new doors will start opening on the income front, as the Sun returns to begin your annual income update and review, giving the money gods their first chance all year to focus on income matters. You'll have a chance during the Moon's two visits to your income sector to gain a nose for money and keep up to date with any current developments, but the real update will begin next month, leaving the money gods free to focus more on a major financial review this month. The most important days for having your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground, paying attention to a nose for money, are during the Moon's two visits to your income sector, the first from the 2nd July to the 4th July and the second from the 29th July to the 1st August. The rest of the month has the money gods firmly focused on financial and money matters as a whole, with Neptune and Chiron spending their first full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector. This is now part of your annual pattern and will be until Chiron leaves in 2019 and Neptune in 2024, always spending June to November in retrograde motion. With no planets returning to your income sector until next month, this is a chance to focus on this financial review, taking care of any financial housekeeping and also tapping back into old financial fantasies and aspirations first. The money gods are in no hurry, with the more you can make sense of where you've been, the more empowered you'll be to seize new opportunities next month.
While, with Uranus in your financial sector until 2019, there is never going to be a month where there isn't at least some focus on financial and money matters, even if it's just that your mind is constantly ticking over, what is unusual is to have planetary activity in your income sector. The most active months of the year for income matters are always in September/October, when the Sun moves through your income sector and while that will still be the case this year, the money gods have slipped in something extra. It was last December that Mars returned for what should have been a 6 week visit to your income sector, but by the time he eventually leaves on the 26th July, he will have completed his longest visit in 32 years, but not before helping you to take a sledgehammer to any remaining glass ceilings. This is something that Mars has helped with and not only because you've spent months redefining your value system. Mars' main support comes from Mercury, in your career sector until the 13th July and Venus, here until the 19th July. It's unclear who is helping who, but both income and career forces benefit from the mutual support, with a real push in these closing days to put things on the path you want them to continue on. While Mars will leave your income sector on the 26th July and Uranus will turn retrograde in your financial sector on the 22nd July, the money gods will keep skeleton crews in operation on both fronts, figuring that you've come too far to let things slide.
When Venus left your financial sector on the 24th July, just 8 days before the new month began, she not only left you with some clear financial desires and expectations, she wrapped up all the planetary activity for the year. This has left you with a clear sense of where things stand, what you have to work with and on, but have also left the follow through up to you. From this point the money gods, with no more planetary activity in your financial sector, have all redeployed to your income sector where it seems, in the early days of the month anyway, that things have gone flat or that there is little, if any movement. This might prove frustrating, for there is definite movement on the career front and you could be wondering why the same isn't happening on the income front. There is a need to trust that it will, but it all comes down to timing and with Saturn in retrograde motion until the 21st July and having to come to a standstill in order to turn direct, you can't push and hurry things. While the tide will turn and the handbrakes will come off when Saturn turns direct, it won't be until 5 days later, when on the 26th July Mars returns to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit that the real push will come. This is the start of a major comeback, kicking off some powerful months on the income front that won't run their course until Christmas Eve. This is when the comeback starts, but it's no flash in the pan.
It is not unusual to have planetary activity in your financial sector at this time of year, even though the Sun left on the 21st June, wrapping up your annual financial review 10 days before the new month began. Things are still in play because Mercury retrograded back in last month for a double dip visit, 19 days after leaving and Venus, held back by her retrograde phase earlier in the year, was late getting here. For different reasons this has bought you extra time and with Mercury in retrograde motion until the 2nd July, you even have a chance in the early days of the month to spend time back at the drawing board, working with Mercury's smart head for money and hindsight. Yet with Venus, the last planet to move through your financial sector for the year, already on board and her job of defining your financial desires and expectations already underway, this is more about tying up loose ends. With Mercury leaving your financial sector on the 13th July and Venus on the 19th July, this is when all the planetary activity in not only your financial sector but in both your money houses, will come to an end, with the next push not coming until Mars reaches your income sector in September. Yet while the most lucrative income months of the year are still a few months away, their potential success gets a major shot in the arm when lucky Jupiter returns to your career sector on the 16th July, kicking off your most powerful and expansive professional year in over a decade.
The money gods will always have the focus on money matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of July in your financial sector. This is when your annual financial review and update takes place, with the Sun throwing the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options, with a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping. This is the annual update that will take place at this time every year, but you'll have to wait until 2025 to have lucky Jupiter on board again, with your annual update overlapping the final weeks of your most important financial update in over a decade. Since returning to your financial sector last June, Jupiter has had a mixed bag of pressure and support, both providing more financial good fortune than you realise. Jupiter is here to expand your financial reality and expectations, setting the scene for financial prosperity moving forward, but he's not into plastering over old cracks, which wouldn't serve you well in the long term. After a series of oppositions with Pluto in your income sector and other tensions, the bar has been raised and the financial challenges of the past year will soon start to make sense. With Mercury returning to your financial sector on the 13th July and Venus on the 19th July they'll provide the smart head for money and the desires and expectations to begin reaping what this powerful financial year has laid the seeds for.
That you're moving into July with no planetary activity in either of your money houses is not that unusual, however while you will often start July with no money gods on duty, it will never end that way, with the Sun returning to your financial sector on the 23rd July, as he does at this time every year. This is when your annual financial review begins, with the Sun throwing the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options, revealing both what you do and don't want to see, giving you a new starting point. Yet before the Sun can get there the game changes completely, with lucky Jupiter's return to your financial sector on the 16th July kicking off your most important, expansive and potentially lucky year for money matters in over a decade. By the time the Sun returns and turns the solar spotlight on, Jupiter will have been here for a week, revealing some of the best conditions since Jupiter was last here, between August 2002 and August 2003. This is the last month where you'll return to find no planetary activity in your financial sector until November 2015, with the early weeks of the month giving you a chance to keep your money hat off, aware of just how long you'll need to keep it on once it goes on. This is a chance to completely rewrite your financial reality. The one chance you'll have to focus on income matters this month is during the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 13th July to the 15th July, giving you a nose for money in Mars' final days in your career sector and Mercury and Venus' final days in your work sector.
There is an almost languid feel to income matters this month, with the only two planets in not only your income sector but in either money houses both still in their early weeks in retrograde motion as you move into the new month. With Chiron in your income sector until 2019 and Neptune until 2026 there'll never be a time when your focus is off income matters, but as they're here for so long this is in a low key way and this month it's more about spending time looking back through the rear view mirror. However, both Neptune and Chiron and income forces in general are playing a supportive role to some major developments on the work and career fronts this month. With lucky Jupiter leaving your work sector on the 16th July and Mars returning to your career sector on the 26th July, with both having ongoing support during the month, this is holding the doors open to second chances and to benefiting from the past on the income front, as you have some real professional progress being made. There is an especially tight bond between income and work forces, where in the early weeks of the month the most progress is being made. It's not until the 26th July that Mars will return to fire up your professional passions and fighting spirit. With Mercury in retrograde motion in your work sector until the 2nd July and Saturn in retrograde motion in your career sector until the 21st July, the doors will be open to second chances on the income, work and career fronts at varying times.
It's with mixed blessings that you're likely to see Mars finally leave your financial sector this month, finally wrapping up a visit that began last December, which should have been a 6 week visit but instead turned into his longest visit in 32 years. Having Mars fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit is a good thing, but wasn't so good with the financial tension, pressures and challenges that came with it. Yet throughout what has been a turbulent visit from Mars the money gods have asked you to trust them and especially Uranus, who waiting patiently in your income sector knows that his turn will not only soon come, but that he'll benefit from the breakthroughs achieved over the last 8 months. It's only as Mars leaves that the true implications of his epic visit will be revealed, benefiting from the way he's shaken things up for months, if not years to come. However, you won't have to wait that long to see the benefits, especially on the income front, with the tide turning 10 days before Mars leaves your financial sector. It's on the 16th July that lucky Jupiter will return to your work sector to begin your luckiest and most expansive year for work opportunities in over a decade and from the get go he'll work in partnership with Uranus, to ensure income opportunities come along for the ride. It's not until Mars leaves your financial sector however that you'll feel the financial tensions that have dogged you so far this year finally ease off, only to be replaced by a new sense of resolve.
