December brings you to the end of some of the biggest, most empowering but also the most challenging financial years in decades with Saturn, hard task master of the cosmos in your financial sector since October 2012. Over recent months Mars, the Sun, Ceres, Venus and finally Mercury all moved through, each contributing to getting everything out in the open, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, updating your financial desires and expectations and giving you the smart head for money needed to bring things home. Mercury only left last late month and having returned 2 months earlier for what should have been a 15 day visit, he's left you with a smart head for money and the means to keep your head in the game. The Moon will move through your financial sector from the 18th December to the 20th December, sharpening your financial instincts and ensuring you've got your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, during what by then will be the final days of a massive financial overhaul. While Saturn will return for a few months in mid 2015, the time to deal with financial matters head on is now. The Moon will makes two visits to your income sector this month, each time giving you a nose for money at what will be a vital point of the month for professional matters. Returning from the 3rd December to the 5th December this will give you a nose for money in Mars' final days in your career sector and then returning on 30th December this will ensure you've got a nose for money as you move into the New Year, riding the crest of a professional wave into 2015.
The money gods are always focused on financial and money matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your financial sector. This is the time of year when financial matters always come under the solar spotlight, when everything becomes more transparent and when there's a need to pay a lot more attention. This year, apart from the fact that Mars has already moved through and having fired up your financial passions and fighting spirit you're a lot more motivated and with Ceres making her first visit since 2010 you're revising your needs and priorities, things still look fairly normal. With Venus fuelling your financial desires and expectations until she leaves on the 11th December and Mercury's smart head for money to work with until he leaves on the 17th December, you've got the means to tie up this financial year and take a smart, motivated and empowered approach to money matters. With the Sun leaving on the 22nd December this is when your annual financial review ends and should be the point where the money gods shut up shop and leave you to your own devices. In any other year that would have and is usually the case, but this isn't any other year or at least it won't be when Saturn returns on Christmas Eve, to begin your biggest financial overhaul in 3 decades. While Saturn, hard task master of the cosmos, will demand that you deal with financial issues, you'll have until December 2017 and have already spent the last 3 months preparing. While the money gods will keep the focus on money matters all month, the only opportunity income matters will get will be during a Full Moon in your income sector on the 7th December, however with Mars returning to your career sector on the 5th December, the timing is perfect, with your professional year and income opportunities getting their second wind at the same time.
The one thing that you can always bank on is that you'll come to the end of the year and move into the New Year with your money hat on, something that has always and will always be your reality, thanks to the Sun's return to your financial sector on the 22nd December, always spending the final days and the first 3 weeks of every year here. Over and above that the years change in what kind of additional focus there is and this year while things are a lot more active, there is also a push to bring things home. You will move into December with Mars in your financial sector, with the warrior planet of the cosmos firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit since late October. Even when he leaves those passions will be in safe hands, with Pluto keeping the ball rolling, Venus returning on the 11th December to fuel your financial desires and expectations, Mercury on the 17th December to lend his smart head for money and the Sun on the 22nd December to throw the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters. However, a New Moon on the 22nd December, just hours after the Sun returns is a clue to the hurry up the money gods are giving, for with Mars and Venus not returning until 2016 and not even a New Moon here in 2015, the money gods want things to be resolved between now and early January. That's because 2015 is going to be a financial year that is more about redefining your financial priorities than the more mundane aspects, which can be taken care of now and in the early weeks of January. In the meantime, the only time the money gods will focus on income matters will be during the Moon's last visit to your income sector for the year, from the 8th December to the 10th December, giving you a nose for money as you move into the closing weeks of this professional year.
While you will sometimes get some planetary activity in your financial sector in December, it's usually more a case of the activity that usually plays out in January/February each year starting early and unless something major is happening, you won't see any planetary activity in your income sector. This month you have both, in that for the first time since 2002 you're moving into the final weeks of the year with lucky Jupiter in your income sector, while Mars is making an early visit to your financial sector, returning on the 5th December. Once Mars gets here this will put two very powerful planets in your two money houses and does set the scene for an opposition, but in a way that is set to have benefits on both fronts. Lucky Jupiter turns retrograde in your income sector on the 9th December and in order to do a U turn will slow right down. With some major developments on the work front this will open the door to second chances, but with Mars on the other side of the sky, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, it's also going to ensure you don't fall asleep at the wheel. This will be Mars' first visit to your financial sector in nearly 2 years and will be his first Christmas here since 1999, with his alignment with the Moon on Christmas Day meaning even that day won't be immune to having your money hat on. Jupiter and Mars are due to move into opposition on the 1st/2nd January, so in the later days of the month there could be some financial tension building, yet with Saturn in your work sector by then and moving into a huge year for income, work and career matters, this will keep you on your toes and motivated.
When Neptune and Chiron turned direct in your financial sector last month this saw the tide turn and your focus shift from the past and the rear view mirror, where it had been since June and onto the road ahead. However, the tide only finished turning on the 24th November, so this is still fairly new, with the Moon helping you to get your bearings as you move into the new month. The Moon returned to your financial sector on the 29th November and will leave on the 1st December, allowing you to move into the new month with your financial instincts sharp and an intuitive sense that the tide has turned, though sensing that things are still essentially stuck or stalled. By the time the Moon returns for a second visit, from the 26th December to the 28th December, the pace will have picked up and with Mars returning in the New Year there'll already be a sense of anticipation and a sense of excitement about the fact that a new year will offer an opportunity for a fresh start. With Mars returning on the 12th January to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit you can leave any financial moves until the New Year, a year that you'll be better positioned if you move in with a wish list rather than a list of resolutions. In the meantime, despite the fact that 2015 is destined to be your luckiest and most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade, there is little, if any sign of that this month, other than what a nose for money picks up during the Moon's visit from the 13th December to the 15th December. This will be during a crucial point of the month for work matters, giving you a nose for money during Venus' early days and before Mercury returns on the 17th December to get your head in the game.
While the North Node, on its own in your income sector, has taken a more background role, focused more on keeping things on track and moving forward and financial matters are doing the same, there will be some surprising moves on both fronts this week and not the sleepy month the money gods had been indicating. Financial matters are likely to feel like they're slowing down, for with Uranus turning direct in your financial sector on the 22nd December he's got to apply the brakes. It's Uranus' direct turn that will see the tide turn on the financial front, shifting your focus from the road behind to the future and to your 2015 financial year. The Moon will return to your financial sector from the 1st December to the 3rd December, with this last visit while Uranus is in retrograde motion bringing your financial instincts and 20/20 hindsight together. By the time the Moon returns, from the 28th December to the 30th December, Uranus will be in direct motion and with 2015 just days away, this will be a chance to start lining up for the fresh start this will create an opportunity for. Income matters should tick over and no more, however they get a massive boost by professional developments in the early first week of the month. It begins with Mars' return to your work sector on the 5th December and concludes with a Full Moon in your career sector on the 7th December, giving your professional year its second wind and a massive kick start. This will not only see work and career matters suddenly come back to life, but they'll take the North Node and all the untapped income potential with them. A month that begins with nothing to write home about on the income, work and career fronts will turn into one of the best of the year by the time you get to the end of the first week.
A massive learning curve comes to an end just before Christmas when, on Christmas Eve Saturn, who has been in your income sector since October 2012 moves on, leaving you with no planetary activity here or in either of your money houses, allowing you to take your money hat off over the Christmas/New Year period, for the first time since 2011. This means the first 24 days of the month require you to keep your money hat on in a way that is determined and where you're ready to take your power back. Saturn is the hard task master of the cosmos, but here the toughest challenges have been to define your values and priorities, to believe in and to stand up for yourself, cementing the intentions that will define your income and earnings for years, if not decades to come. Saturn will return for a few months in mid 2015 and that could be quite a lucrative time, but what he really wants is to see your resolve cemented by the time he leaves on Christmas Eve. Mercury only leaves your income sector on the 28th November so you're moving into December with the smart head for money and the means to keep your head in the game, not only seizing any remaining income opportunities this year, but to ensure you're lined up for the income opportunities Mars' return to your work sector in the New Year is going to bring. The Moon's visit to your income sector, from the 18th December to the 20th December, will be both the last for the year and the last before Saturn leaves, giving you a nose for money during the final days of his massive overhaul. The Moon will make two visits to your financial sector, the first from the 3rd December to the 5th December and the second from the 30th December to the 2nd December, allowing you to bring 2014 to an end and step into 2015 with your financial instincts sharp.
That the focus is on income matters this month is no surprise, for with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your income sector this will always be the case. To start with this is going to be fairly normal and typical, apart from the fact that with Mars having recently moved through you're likely to feel a lot hungrier and a lot more determined to come out of your corner fighting. The other thing that is not the norm is that with Ceres here you're looking beyond the money, with her alignment with Venus late last month having given you a chance to redefine your needs and priorities. It was Mercury's return on the 28th November that has given you the smart head for money needed to work with the money gods to ensure every opportunity is exploited. However, with Venus leaving on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December, this is something that should have run its course by Christmas, leaving you on your own from there. However, nothing about this month is typical, from the fact that you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector for the first time in 12 years to the fact that rather than being the end of the story this is just the start. Once the Sun leaves your income sector on the 22nd December your annual update will run its course but it's Saturn's return on Christmas Eve, for the first time since 1988, that brings you to the start of your biggest income overhaul in 3 decades, something that will take until December 2017 to play out. With Uranus in your work sector until 2019, lucky Jupiter in your career sector until August 2015 and Saturn in your income sector until the end of 2017, this month is a stepping stone into 2015, a year that is destined to be one of your biggest years for income, work and career matters ever.
The money gods are going all out to push home any income advantages this month, not only by exploiting as much untapped potential as possible, but setting things in motion to continue to provide opportunities throughout 2015. This is a month that is not only about bringing this year's opportunities home, but where most of the momentum that will generate next year's opportunities are being produced. With Pluto in your income sector from 2008 to 2024 there will always be at least one money god on duty and the focus will always be on income matters to some degree or other, even if it's just to keep things ticking over. However, it was Mars' return to your income sector in late October that fired up your passions and fighting spirit, with the warrior planet of the cosmos putting a sledgehammer in your hands a distinct dislike of glass ceilings, telling you to 'go for it'. Mars will leave on the 5th December and not due to return until 2016, his motivation has to last the whole of 2015, making it important to drink in as much of his warrior energy as possible. Even Venus, who will return to your income sector on the 11th December and Mercury, who will return on the 17th December are a lot more determined, not wanting you to wait until the New Year to seize opportunities and make things happen. For Venus is due to leave on the 4th January and then not return again until 2016 and Mercury will leave on the 5th December, not returning until the very end of 2015. Even the New Moon on the 22nd December, just hours after the Sun's return is a little more urgent, for with no New Moons here during 2015 this is when you need to commit to all the moves, expectations and opportunities that will fuel income matters until 2016. Financial matters will get a voice during a Full Moon in your financial sector on the 7th December, but for the most part December is all about ensuring no stone has been unturned on the income front, while laying down the foundations for all that will transpire during the course of 2015.
There shouldn't be any planetary activity in either of your money houses this month, with the money gods on holiday apart from a few lunar visits. You will hardly ever find planetary activity in your financial sector, which is usually active in July/August and while income matters, which are active in January/February, sometimes start off early, it's not usually until the end of the month. This year the money gods are not only here, they're extremely active and by the end of the first week that will include both your money houses. The money gods have cancelled their holidays this year and are working through. To start with this was always going to be in a low key way, for with lucky Jupiter in your financial sector from July 2014 to August 2015 and turning retrograde on the 9th December, his first visit in 12 years is in no hurry and will move into a review phase. What not only raises the heat on the financial front but the income front as well is Mars' return to your income sector on the 5th December, along with a Full Moon in your work sector just 2 days later, which will give income opportunities a push start. Mars did return to your income sector 2 years ago, but back then he returned on Boxing Day, where he's returned early enough this time around to gain some real leverage in the final weeks of your 2014 professional year and position you for a good start to 2015. Returning just 2 days before the Full Moon in your work sector on the 7th December and on a mission to break through some glass ceilings, this will provide the kick start you need. This will be the first time that you'll have Mars in your income sector on Christmas Day since 1999, but the Moon's visit from the 24th December to the 26th December will see their first alignment on Christmas Day since 1965. Even over Christmas you'll find it hard to take your money hat off, but with this will come a chance to redefine what you're fighting for. Any financial tension that might start to creep in towards the end of the month is more likely to fuel your motivation.
There is a quiet new sense of confidence this month or at least that's what the money gods are working towards, with the tide having turned on the income front last month, something that is just sinking in as you move into the new month. The Moon returned to your income sector on the 29th November, just 5 days after Chiron turned direct here and just a day after Mercury's departure from your career sector brought your professional year into the home straight. With the Moon not leaving your income sector until the 1st December this means you'll move into the new month with a nose for money, making it important to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. However, what this is likely to reveal is that while the tide has turned and the focus is on the road ahead rather than the road behind, that things are still stuck or stalled, albeit for all the right reasons. By the time the Moon returns for a second visit, from the 26th December to the 28th December, the nose for money this triggers will reveal a very different situation. Not only will income forces have started to gain some traction by then, but with Mars returning early in the New Year and a very real chance to start smashing through any glass ceilings, this will bring a sense of excitement and anticipation about 2015 and its potential. It's been a fairly quiet year for income matters, with Mars not visiting your income sector at all in 2014 and only the bare minimum of planetary influence. The main focus this year has been on gaining the right professional momentum, but with Saturn leaving your career sector on Christmas Eve and Mars returning to your income sector in the New Year, over the Christmas/New Year everything will change. The money gods are lining you up to move into 2015 with a professional tailwind and to make it more about the money.
While things are fairly quiet on both the income and financial fronts this month, there should be a high degree of confidence on both fronts. The North Node, on its own in your financial sector, is keeping the momentum going and money matters on track, with very little required of you other than you maintain the momentum you've already gained and you keep things ticking over. At the same time, while not a lot might be happening on the income front and in fact things could even appear stalled or stuck, it's because you're gearing up for a turnaround, in some of the best possible conditions. If income matters are barely moving it's because Uranus, in retrograde motion in your income sector, is slowing down ahead of his direct turn on the 22nd December, which will see the tide turn just 2 days before Saturn's game changing return to your career sector on Christmas Eve. With new income opportunities due to open up in February and 2015 destined to be one of your biggest and most powerful years for income, work and career opportunities and developments ever, you can afford to be patient. In order to turn direct Uranus has to slow down to a complete stop, which is why income matters could appear stuck or stalled, but for all the right reasons. It's lucky Jupiter's retrograde turn in your work sector on the 9th December that creates a 13 day period where, until the 22nd December, the doors will be open to the past and second chances on the income and work fronts at the same time. The Moon will make two visits to your income sector this month, the first from the 1st December to the 3rd December will be the last while Uranus is in retrograde motion, with a nose for money coming with 20/20 hindsight. By the time the Moon returns from the 28th December to the 30th December Uranus will be in direct motion, Saturn will have returned to your career sector and you'll be just days away from moving into your biggest professional year in decades.
