After some very intense months on the money front and especially last month, with both a solar eclipse in your financial sector and a Full Moon in your income sector, you've finally reached a point where you can start tying up loose ends and that needs to happen in the very early days of the month. While the Sun left your financial sector last month, bringing your annual financial review and reality checks to an end, until Mercury leaves on the 5th December you still need to have your head in the game, working with his smart head for money to make the kind of choices, decisions or a financial game plan that will see you take your power back, putting money matters on the track you want them to continue on. However, even after Mercury leaves, the powerful forces working behind the scenes will stay on to ensure you remain on track, with a need to remain vigilant. Where in other years, whether you stayed on track or let things slide was up to you, this year pragmatic forces will continue to police things, making the early days of the month important for setting your financial resolutions for the coming year. While money matters are fairly predictable and you should know by now what you need to be working on and what you have to work with, there is one last wild card to play on the income front. While a Full Moon in your income sector can trigger income opportunities, it's often the Moon's next visit that carries the most clout. The Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon from the 13th December to the 15th December and the timing couldn't be better, triggering the potential for a wildcard event on the income front, just 5 days after Mars leaves your work sector, as career forces are coming together and you're ready to bring your professional year home. A Christmas bonus maybe?
That there is a lot of focus on money matters this month is not surprising, but it's not because this is always going to be the most expensive month of the year, but because the Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your financial sector. Whether by good or bad fortune, the Sun will always throw the solar spotlight on money matters just when Christmas is likely to be putting the greatest demands on your budget, but as this is something that happens every year, always has and always will, this is your normal. What you have this year is one of the easiest annual updates you've ever had, with the Sun not mucking about, keeping things quick, concise and very neatly tied up, with no complications, challenges or extra special demands. With Venus been and gone your financial desires and expectations have already been banked and with Mercury and his smart head for money moving through from the 5th December to the 24th December, you'll find it easy to keep your head in the game. What is missing from previous years is any challenges and for the first time since 1993 this will all be over by Christmas, creating a short, sharp and uncomplicated chance to take care of any financial housekeeping, to work your financial game plan and your resolutions for the future. The key times this month will be around the time of a New Moon in your financial sector on the 3rd December, which will bring a chance to draw a line in the sand and a Full Moon in your income sector on the 17th December, triggering any last minute income opportunities.
While it's not unusual to have the money gods active in December, what is unusual is to have them as active as they are, that they are already in play as you move into the month and that the focus is not only on financial and money matters, but there are money gods assigned to income matters as well. The Sun will always return to your sign in December, but not until the 22nd December, always shining the spotlight on your financial situation and money matters at the beginning and end of each year. Yet with Venus here since the 5th November and not due to leave until the 6th March, your financial desires and expectations are not only already having an influence, they will continue to have an influence right through your annual financial review and beyond. With Venus triggering the laws of attraction and boosting your confidence, this is a chance to take your power back and even make some big changes. Complicating this, but also adding some extreme opportunities, is lucky Jupiter, who for the first time since 2002 is in your income sector as you move into the closing weeks of the year. Even last month's standoff between Jupiter and Venus, which may have brought any financial tensions to a head in the closing days of November, is more likely to have worked to your advantage, bringing a new sense of resolve on both fronts. With lucky Jupiter spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector and Venus turning retrograde in your financial sector on the 22nd December, the same day the Sun returns to begin your annual financial review, the doors are opening to second chances. What will really help drive income opportunities home is the massive support that lucky Jupiter is receiving from Saturn in your work sector, especially from the 9th December to the 17th December.
That December is a low key month for money matters shouldn't surprise you as it's in the middle months of the year that the money gods focus on income matters and it's not usually until January that the focus shifts to money matters and that's the way you want to keep it. Already there is likely to be a sense that you're putting off any big financial decisions or moves until the New Year and that you might be starting to feel bad about this, that you're either procrastinating or you're sweeping things under the carpet, telling yourself that you'll deal with them later. However, so long as you don't ignore the things you really need to pay attention to, this might be a smart move, for it's giving you a chance to not only bring home any remaining income opportunities for the year, but to establish your overall financial priorities. When Mercury returns to your financial sector on the 12th January he'll not only bring a smart head for money into play and kick off your new financial year, but a very active 3 months on the financial front. In the meantime, while Mars left your income sector in October, bringing all the planetary activity for the year to a close, with so much developing on the work front this month and something special going on behind the scenes of a New Moon on the 3rd December, you haven't finished exploiting all your income potential. At the same time, with 2014 destined to eventually become an extremely auspicious year for income opportunities, getting the right professional traction is vitally important. Any financial housekeeping can wait until the New Year.
All the action is in the early days of the month, especially when it comes to getting things up to speed on the income front, identifying what you're fighting for and committing to the journey towards making it happen, regardless of what or how long it takes. If there is any urgency then it's on the income front, for on the financial front as a whole things couldn't be less urgent, with the money gods giving you time to slowly turn things around. The urgency is coming from the fact that when Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos leaves your income sector on the 8th December, he'll not only wrap up his own 7 week visit or even all the planetary activity for the year, but the last push before lucky Jupiter returns next year. This makes the early days of the month important for putting it all on the line, but more importantly for believing in yourself and in what you're worth. With the full support of Venus in your work sector and all that last month's Full Moon in your career sector triggered, this is not only one last push to exploit any remaining income potential the year holds, but to line things up for 2014, a year that is destined to become one of your most auspicious income years in over a decade. Even if it's just a case of identifying the glass ceilings you're aiming for and putting a sticky note on them, for quick reference in the future this is all about lining you up for future opportunities, which has everything to do with what you think you deserve. In the meantime, with both Neptune and Chiron spending their first full month in direct motion in your financial sector, but the next push not coming until the 1st February, financial housekeeping or any big moves can wait. The focus here is more on a slow and steady turnaround.
This is a month where the money gods themselves should go on holiday or at least that should be the case of income matters, yet nothing could be further than the reality you're about to experience. With Uranus in your financial sector from 2010 to 2019 there will never be a time when you can fully take your money hat off. However, with the most active months of the year for both income and financial matters behind you and Uranus in retrograde motion until the 18th December and even then moving at a crawl, at most this should be a month for tying up loose ends. Chances are, as you move into the new month, there's likely to be a nagging sense that you haven't yet fully exploited the full income potential the year holds or that you're becoming aware that you need and want more. At a point in the year when your income expectations should be sown up, chances are you've brought them out again and you are already revising them when the game changes dramatically on the 8th December. This is the day that Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will return to your income sector, turning everything until now into a practice run. In the 6 weeks that Mars will normally spend in your income sector he fires up your fighting spirit, a sense of entitlement and can sometimes trigger financial challenges, anything to get you motivated. However, this is anything but a fleeting visit and is instead the start of Mars' longest visit to your income sector in 3 decades, one that won't run its course until the 26th July 2014 and will also pick up some extraordinary support along the way. Mars has only two words to say to you when he returns to your income sector on the 8th December and they will be 'game on'.
After a very intense and at times challenging few months, money and especially income matters are finally settling down after some real ups and downs. You should be at a point where either the worst never actually happened and things turned out alright in the end or the worst did happen, but rather than defeat you it's made you even more determined, committed and resilient. You have just experienced the full might that having Saturn in your income sector can throw at things, with everything out in the open and a test to your confidence and resilience over. Where ever things stand on the income front in the early days of the month, you should be in a position where you know what you're dealing with, what your situation and position is and you're dealing with 'what is' rather than 'what ifs'. With Mercury not leaving your income sector until the 5th December you're able to tie up loose ends, keep your head in the game and with a smart head for money make the choices, decisions and plans you need to make. Even financial and money matters as a whole, which came to a head during last month's Full Moon, are likely to have got everything out in the open, putting you in a position where on both the income and financial fronts you know exactly where things stand. This is when the rebuilding begins and with Saturn not leaving your income sector until December 2014, you've got the power to start making things happen. What you do want this month however is to dial things back, so money matters are no longer as intense or as dominating as they have been.
There will always be a focus on money matters at this time of year, not only because the Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your income sector, but a Full Moon in your financial sector at some point during the Sun's month long visit will also bring money matters to a head. What you have this year is something extremely clean and tidy, with just the right amount of support to get things up to date and on track, giving you a chance to take your money hat off over Christmas and the holiday period, something you rarely get a chance to do. For while the Sun will always leave your income sector on the 22nd December, bringing your annual review to a close and bringing the job of getting everything out in the open home, there is invariably other planets left behind tying up loose ends. Last year Venus didn't leave your income sector until January and in fact, the last time all the planetary activity in not only your income sector but in both your money houses was over before Christmas, was in 1993, 20 years ago. Even the financial tension and challenges of the past are behind you, with a very efficient update aimed at allowing you to capture any residual income opportunities the year holds and a chance to line up for your 2014 financial year. Even the New Moon in your income sector on the 3rd December has a little more kick to it, so be on the lookout for income opportunities around that time. Mercury will move through your income sector from the 5th December to the 24th December and it's he and his smart head for money that will tie up loose ends. A Full Moon in your financial sector on the 17th December will give both financial and income matters a wakeup call and a chance to bring things to a head, just as the money gods are getting ready to shut up shop for the year.
While, with Pluto in your income sector from 2008 to 2024, there'll never be a day, let alone a month where you can fully take your money hat off, even by those standards, December is a month when the focus is even more intense, especially on the income front. However, this year two factors set this apart from previous years. The first is how soon this has kicked in, for with the Sun not returning to your income sector until the 22nd December and Mercury and his smart head for money not kicking in until Christmas Eve, it's usually over the holiday period and into the early weeks of January that this takes hold. Yet as you move into the new month this is already underway and you may already have seen evidence that something was shifting on the income front last month, either in terms of income opportunities or developments or just a general sense of confidence or resolve. The other fact that is setting this month apart is the fact that you'll move into December with things still very active on the career front, something that isn't usually the case. The Sun left your career sector in September and while it will always take a month or so to tie up loose ends, by December your professional year is all but set in stone. However, it was Mars' return in October, just as things were dying down that saw you catch your second wind and until he leaves your career sector on the 8th December, he'll continue to fire up your professional passions and fighting spirit. This is playing right into Venus' early return to your income sector and her position here until early March. You're waking up to the fact that you're extremely well positioned on the income and career fronts, with lucky Jupiter applying just enough pressure from his position in your financial sector to keep you on your toes.
December will always be a low key month for money matters and that's just the way you want it, with a chance to keep your money hat off as much as possible. Yet there is not only some tantalising income opportunities due to open up in the New Year, but some surprise developments on the career front that should be creating a boost in confidence, even if there is nothing yet to back this up. While all the planetary activity in your financial sector for the year only wrapped up in October, leaving you with more than enough momentum and awareness to continue to keep your financial situation and money matters on track, the last planet to visit your income sector was back in February. If the money gods have been asleep on the job anywhere it's been on the income front, but that's about to change. Even though new doors won't open on the income front until Mercury and his smart head for money return on the 12th January, this will open the door to a 3 month period of planetary activity that is destined to be an extremely lucrative time for income matters and opportunities. This will be as much to do with the planetary activity in your income sector, as it is to what will be happening on the work front at the time and this is where you can get a jump on things next month. Yes 3 months of planetary support is going to get things moving on the income front, but what you really need to extract the full advantage is professional leverage and in the early days of the month that's not looking too good. With the annual push on both the work and career fronts behind you, it's looking like you're on your own on this one. However, everything will change with Mars' return to your career sector on the 8th December, kicking off an 8 month visit, his longest in 3 decades, that will provide more than enough leverage for the income opportunities developing from early next month.
While Mars' return to your financial sector in mid October, just as your annual financial review and update had ran its course, has been a mixed blessing, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit but also creating some financial tension and intensity, this is something that both your financial situation and income matters are set to benefit from. Neptune, in your income sector until 2026 and Chiron, here until 2019, are both on a long term mission to create wealth, abundance and to bring access to all the income opportunities that are possible to achieve, but they know that it takes time. With Neptune and Chiron having only turned direct last month and the next big push not coming until early February, while your focus needs to be on the future, there is no urgency or hurry. Mars on the other hand is nothing but urgent and fired up and on the other side of the sky and in opposition with income forces, this is where the intensity and financial tension has been coming from. Yet you need Mars' financial passions and fighting spirit, not only to get financial matters out in the open and on the track you want them to continue on, but to give stalled income forces a timely push. Mars will leave your financial sector on the 8th December and not due to return until 2015, the early days of the month are all about approaching financial and money matters head on, getting everything out in the open and doing whatever it takes, to take your power back. Once Mars leaves the intensity and tensions will leave with him, but you'll be left with a lot of traction. It's then that income forces will come out from behind Mars' more dramatic shadow and you should start to see a return in your confidence and signs of movement on the income front. However, don't push things, with the most lucrative months of the next 12 months kicking off on the 1st February.
December is not usually a month where there is a lot of focus on money matters, over and above what you would normally expect. While you have long term planetary support and focus for income matters and will do for another 5 years, financial and money matters themselves will have usually run their course by October or November each year and in the early days of the month that's going to be the case. However, everything will change when Mars returns to your financial sector on the 8th December, which is outside the normal annual patterns and with his own mission and mandate, he's here to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit. This will be anything but a fleeting visit with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos not leaving until the 26th July 2014, making this his longest visit in 3 decades and set to have a big influence on 2014. While this might create some financial tension, especially when Mars moves into opposition with Uranus over Christmas, this is more likely to keep you on your toes, providing the motivation to take your power back financially, but also to make the most of a turnaround taking place on the income front this month. For until Mars comes along Uranus and your income situation are and will remain in a really good place. With Uranus turning direct in your income sector on the 18th December and with the full support of the Sun and Mercury in your career sector, the scene is set for a slow turnaround. What Mars will do is speed things up, with a chance to really get things moving on both the income and financial fronts this month. However, on both fronts this is less an event and more the start of a new journey, one that is all about taking your power back. You've been asleep at the wheel for too long.
