By rights the money gods should be nowhere to be seen this month with the Sun and Venus, having both left your income sector in the final 10 days of May and your financial sector, only usually active in October/November each year. However, you've got an important month for both income and financial matters and when that happens, you know that something out of the ordinary is going on. Mercury, who returned to your income sector on the 6th April for what should have been a 15 day visit aimed at giving you a smart head for money and the means to make smart choices, decisions and plans, is not only still here, but with a retrograde phase under his belt he's not leaving until the 13th June. With a smart head for money, 20/20 hindsight and support from the professional gods Mercury is out to milk every income opportunity and untapped potential possible, knowing that once he leaves there will be no more planetary activity in your income sector until February 2017. In the meantime, it was Mars' return to your financial sector on the 28th May that opened the door to a rare double dip visit, retrograding back in for the first time just months after leaving since 1937, 78 years ago. This is a complete do over, with the warrior planet of the cosmos returning to fire up old financial passions and a fighting spirit, while holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential. While both Mercury and Mars bring nothing but opportunities to their respective camps, on opposing sides of the sky and in opposition on the 9th/10th June, this will see financial tensions rise. Yet as one puts pressure on the other this will raise the bar on both fronts, increasing the potential for a breakthrough. While Mercury will leave your income sector on the 13th June income potential will remain in the safe hands of the professional gods.
The focus is always going to be on income matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your income sector, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. This year Venus is moving through at the same time and until leaving on the 18th June she is not only working to boost your desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement, but is working to attract opportunities. In isolation there is nothing but good news on the income front this month, with Mercury moving through from the 13th June to the 30th, giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and make smart choices, decisions and plans. However, nothing is ever in isolation and especially not this year, with Saturn over on the other side of the sky in your financial sector and in opposition. 2016 and in fact right through from December 2014 to December 2017 is a huge period of financial learning and growth, where Saturn is taking you through financial boot camp, gaining wisdom, experience and endurance by facing financial challenges head on. Each obstacle you face and every challenge you overcome carves a new foothold that allows you to climb up to the next level. If it said that you can't climb a smooth mountain and if that's the case, Saturn is the planet putting in the foot holds and grooves that give you something to use as leverage, each carved by moments where you take responsibility. So when your annual income update comes along, as it does at this time every year, it forces you to comply or work in with a larger financial objective, that of taking your financial power back and taking responsibility for your financial destiny. Yet in the process this raises the bar and with a very short time to get income matters up to speed, just five weeks and five days, this will force you to play your A game.
Apart from Pluto, in your financial sector from 2008 to 2024 and on a long and slow mission to see you achieve financial growth, evolution and ownership, the money gods have been fairly quiet of late, focused more on financial and money matters as a whole. With Pluto in retrograde motion since mid April, but well supported, you're now in a review period that is more focused on looking back. As far as income matters are concerned all you've had since the last planet left your income sector in August 2015 are the Moon's monthly visits and to begin with, this is how this month starts as well. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 6th June to the 8th June will provide a nose for money during Mars' early days back in your work sector, but apart from that the only significant impact will be a sense that something is about to shift. For just 10 days after the Moon's departure from your income sector Venus returns, becoming the first planet to make contact here in 10 months, followed just days later by the Sun on the 21st June and by Mercury on the 30th June. Within the space of 12 days your income sector will go from completely devoid of support to all the support needed to get income matters moving. While the Sun will return to throw the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options and Venus to raise the bar on your desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement and attract opportunities, Mercury's return will see a smart head for money kick in. The final 12 days of June will see the money gods work together to line things up, with most income potential likely to come together in the early weeks of July.
As has been the case for several months now the money gods are keeping a low profile and it will stay that way for one more month, with the wheels finally starting to turn on the income front next month. With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses for some time it has been left up to the Moon to keeping the momentum going and more importantly maintaining the communication lines to the money gods. It will be Venus' return to your income sector on the 12th July that will kick off the most potentially lucrative months of 2016 and because the Year of the Monkey is such a potentially lucrative year for Cancereans, chances are when things start to move it will be in a substantial way. This makes this a month that is more about preparing for what is to come and while this means working with the professional gods on both the work and career fronts, that is only part of the picture. Attitude has a huge part to play in this, with how much you expect to receive over the coming months playing a huge part in what you're likely to attract. One of the best things you can do to prepare is start practicing the laws of gratitude, knowing that the things you focus on are the things you're likely to attract more of. The Moon's return to your income sector from the 8th June to the 11th June will once more sharpen your nose for money, this time at an important point of the month for work matters, but this is also a stepping stone to next month's developments. On the other hand the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 23rd June to the 25th June is more a chance to get your financial bearings and take care of any financial housekeeping. With nothing pending on the financial front for several more months, this visit is more about what's happening now rather than the visit to your income sector, which is a chance to line up for next month's developments.
This is the month where you're able to enjoy the benefits of a win/win victory, realising that after the heated battle that income and financial forces had earlier in the year and the financial tension this created, that both sides can come out victorious. It helps that income and financial forces are no longer in opposition, but there are still safeguards in place to ensure you've learned the lessons of the past, with financial tensions only rising again if that delicate balance between money coming in and money going out looks in danger of getting out of kilter. The biggest reason for a rise in financial confidence this month is that things are improving on the income or financial fronts but that they are improving on both fronts, cosmically at least and that so long as you continue to work to maintain that balance, they will go well for you as well. The stars incline they don't control and what that means is that this month is geared and set up for success or at the very least a rise in financial confidence on both fronts, but if you don't do anything to contribute to that you won't enjoy the benefits. With both Neptune and Chiron turning retrograde in your financial sector this month you're moving into a financial review phase and financial and money matters will focus more on the rear view mirror right through to November. On the other hand, Jupiter's first full month in direct motion in your income sector has income matters finally looking to the future, with income and money matters swapping seats. Money matters are taking the rear guard position and income matters are becoming the vanguard. While the most lucrative months of 2016 are ahead of you and lucky Jupiter won't leave your income sector until September, in his first full month in direct motion he's begun his comeback. You will now find it easier to succeed than you will to fail but if you invest nothing into your own success then more of nothing is still nothing.
The money gods are on a clear cut mission this month, which makes things clear cut and simple to follow, but if this were to be maintained it could easily becoming boring. Like those holiday locations you visit and it never rains and there is sunny day after sunny day I suspect that after a while it would become boring, needing those raining, grey and overcast days in order to appreciate the sunshine. The fact that you have nothing but sunshine on your financial forecast for the month isn't a problem and should be enjoyed, especially as that contrast you need lies in the second half of the year. That forecast for the second half of the year is not for financial challenge ahead and just that with lucky Jupiter returning to your income sector to begin your biggest, luckiest and most auspicious income year in over a decade this will put pressure on financial forces, forcing them to raise the bar as well. You'll have a taste of this when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 13th June to the 16th June, giving you a nose for money just as the professional gods come together to create some real momentum on the career front. This is when money matters themselves are going to be pushed aside and there's a chance they might not like it and protest. If money matters can't stand some competition when the Moon moves through for just three days, how will they fare when Jupiter spends a year in your income sector? The problem you have at the moment is that money matters have it too good, with no challenges and nothing but support. The danger this presents is that you have some exceptional planets in your financial sector, able to help you gain mastery over your financial situation and money matters and really build your financial confidence in a robust and game changing way. This is a month for investing in your financial knowledge, understanding and working with the money gods to really take your power back. Regardless of your financial situation and reality the money gods are supporting positive growth and are standing by to help every proactive move you make.
This should be a very low key month, with the money gods only making an appearance during the Moon's monthly visits. Last year, when the Sun left your financial sector on the 21st May there was no more planetary activity there until Mercury returned on the 6th April 2016, to play his part in this year's financial update. With the most active months of any year for income matters being October and November moving into June should reveal no money gods on the playing field, yet that's not your reality. While Mercury returned for what should have been a 15 day visit to your financial sector on the 6th April and should be long gone, a retrograde phase means he's still here and you still have your head in the game and are still working with his smart head for money to tie up your financial game plan. That shouldn't and isn't a problem, except that on the 28th May, just days before moving into June, Mars makes a totally unexpected move by returning to the field almost three months after leaving your income sector in early March. Having retrograded back in Mars is holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential and while this in itself isn't that unusual, having last happened in 1999 and before that in 1984, the last time the warrior planet of the cosmos returned just months after leaving instead of coming full circle was in 1937, 78 years ago. So a month that should see no money gods on the fields has two of the most effective, one fighting for control of financial and money matters and the other bringing a rare opportunity for second chances. With Mars in retrograde motion until the 30th June and here until the 3rd August he'll be here as the doors open to the past and second chances on the work front this month and as the doors open to new beginnings on the career front from the 18th June. As Mercury and Mars eye each other up from opposite sides of the field, one using brains and the other brawn, the look in their eyes says 'game on'.
That the solar spotlight will be on financial and money matters at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of June in your financial sector. With Venus here until the 18th June, on a mission to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations and Mercury bringing his smart head for money into play and a chance to keep your head in the game from the 13th June to the 30th June, this is the most important month of the year for financial and money matters and for financial housekeeping in general. From the Sun's return last month to Mercury's departure on the 30th June the money gods have just five weeks and five days to make progress, address financial and money matters and in general take care of any financial housekeeping and as the only weeks of 2016 where your financial sector is active, they're determined to make it count. The problem is that at a time of year where the focus isn't usually on income matters you not only have Saturn over in your income sector, but from the get go money matters have found the bar raised. From the moment the Sun returned to your financial sector last month financial tensions were an issue, with a Full Moon in your income sector during his first full day and this month, a second Full Moon there on the 20th June falling in his last full day. Yet while this is partly because income matters refuse to let money matters take too much attention off them, it's also partly because with Saturn setting high expectations on the income front and just five weeks and five days to get your head around financial matters, you're being held to a much higher ground this year. With the last planet gone from your financial sector by the end of the month and income forces receiving some huge support from the professional gods over the coming months, both sides will benefit from the pressure that is coming from the other, forcing you to pay attention and play your A game on both the financial and income fronts.
Not just this year but since as far back as August 2015 income forces have been on a dream run. When a planet moves through your financial sector they demand attention from the money gods as well, with your income and financial sectors sitting on opposite sides of the sky this puts the planets in opposition and creates financial tension. The fact that there has been no planetary activity in your financial sector since August 2016 has been good news for income forces and especially with so much support from the money gods. With Pluto in his second full month in retrograde motion in your income sector and support from both work and career forces at the extreme end of the scale, your biggest danger right now is complacency. If you know that the currents are moving your way and all you have to do is put your rod in the water, then the only challenge you face is motivation. As you move into June the one thing that both income and financial matters need is some planetary activity in your financial sector, something to provide enough challenge to keep income forces on their toes, but also to give financial and money matters some much needed attention. June was always going to be the month when that was finally going to happen, with the Sun always returning to your financial sector on or around the 21st June each year, shining the solar spotlight on financial and money matters and giving income forces just enough pressure to keep them on their toes. This year Venus gets there first, returning on the 18th June and arriving three days before the Sun that's significant. This gives Venus a chance to get in before the Sun's reality checks and before you're required to keep your eyes open and head out of the sand, giving you a chance to begin the process of fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations. If you know what you want you'll be in a better position to make the Sun's month long visit count. This marks the start of your annual financial review, but over by the 22nd July there's a need to make it count from the get go.
June is always going to be a fairly low key month for you and that's been the case for several months now, with no money gods in the game since the last planet left your income sector in mid April. At the same time that the Moon's monthly visits to your income sector are keeping that momentum going and providing the nose for money needed to stay on the money trail, new doors are opening on the work front this month that allow you to take advantage of that. Apart from the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 23rd June to the 25th June, leaving just five days before the last planet is due to leave your work sector, the money gods are putting all their trust, when it comes to income matters, in the hands of the professional gods. However, while the professional gods are interested in income potential and are using the months of planetary activity earlier in the year as motivation and a chance to access untapped potential, they have no interest in financial and money matters as a whole. With the Sun, Mercury and Venus all returning to your financial sector next month, you'll finally have a chance to get financial and money matters up to speed, but as this is also the time of year when you need to take care of any financial housekeeping, you might not be in a hurry for that to start. The more you can start making the small, smart steps now towards taking your financial power back, the less of a wakeup call you'll receive next month. You'll find clues to what you might need to address during the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector from the 8th June to the 11th June. As well as sharpening your financial instincts the Moon will alert you to money matters that need your attention, making it important to take on board the message you do and don't want to hear.
Where financial and income forces were in fierce opposition earlier in the year, with months of financial tension from late February to mid April, both sides have emerged more robust and confident and are coming into their own this month. However, there remains a need for balance, but you've reached a point in the year where financial tension is only there as an early warning detection system, alerting you to where a balance between money coming in and money going out is becoming unstable. While you may have to work for it, with Jupiter spending his first full month in direct motion in your financial sector and support for income forces flooding in, especially from the professional gods, there is a chance this month for financial and income growth and in particular the growth of financial confidence. Not due to leave your financial sector until September and support growing over his final months, you're moving into some of the most empowered financial months in a decade when it comes to taking your power back, but the stars can only meet you half way. On the income front the outlook is just as good, but here less work is required or least on this particular coal face, with professional investment the key to unlocking untapped income potential. With Mars in retrograde motion in your career sector until the 30th June, the doors opening to the past and second chances on the income front over the course of the month and new doors opening on the work front from the 18th June, the scene is set for an unexpectedly good month across the income, work and career fronts. Unexpected because just four days before moving into June the professional gods were nowhere to be seen, yet this month they're pulling off the kind of second chances you haven't seen in decades.
All the focus is on income matters this month and it will stay that way right through to September when a major new financial chapter will begin. While that will eventually put pressure on income forces and raise the bar, that is still several months away and apart of being mindful not to take financial and money matters for granted, the money gods are happy to keep the focus on income matters. The one exception will be during the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector from the 13th June to the 16th June, sharpening your financial instincts and drawing the focus onto financial and money matters. While income matters will protest and this may even create some financial tension, as they'll have your attention for the rest of the month these are a few days where money matters as a whole need to come first. This is a point in the year when Uranus, in your income sector until 2019, should be on his own and without either internal support from any other money god or from the professional gods. Yet this year that isn't the case and this is the reason for a rise in confidence. Ceres is making her first visit to your income sector in four years and not due to leave until August she's working with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and unexpected to update your income priorities, getting beyond the month to establish what you're really working towards. As Ceres and Uranus align from the 20th June to the 27th June this will bring a sense of what's possible together with the laws of synchronicity, creating the potential for some unexpected opportunities. As fate should have it, with the Moon moving through your income sector from the 27th June to the 29th June a nose for money will kick in during the final hours of this potentially game changing alignment. This will ensure you have a nose for money and access to the Eureka and serendipitous moments this has the power to trigger.
