At the same time that you're still not so much recovering from having Saturn in your financial sector for the last few years but assimilating all the experiences and gaining wisdom from the challenges faced, you're also looking to the future and next month's income opportunities. This puts you in a situation where you've got the money gods to the left and money gods to the right, but not right here and now. Yes, the Moon will visit both your money houses this month and they will both be important for different reasons, but what you have is a chance to step back, take your money hat off for whole stretches at a time and let things settle. Until Saturn left your financial sector on Christmas Eve you hadn't had a chance to take your money hat off since August 2012, something you desperately need in order to process what could have been a challenging but also empowering few years. At the same time, while Venus' return to your income sector next month will kick off the most lucrative months of 2015, you're not there yet, with a chance this month to focus more on maintaining the right professional momentum. This makes the Moon's visits to your two money houses important, but for different reasons. As the Moon moves through your financial sector from the 10th February to the 13th February, it's a chance to both sharpen your financial instincts and get your financial bearings, but also to look back and make sense of the last few years. Yet when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 23rd February to the 25th February, apart from the focus being more on gaining a nose for money, as the last visit before new doors open on the income front, this will be a case to look to the future and the road ahead.
There are two different agendas playing out in your money houses this month, not just because their focus is different but the degree to which their influence will be felt. On the income front there's barely any influence at all, apart from when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 25th February to the 28th February. Yet with so much unfolding on the career front this month, while the most lucrative months of 2015 won't kick off until April, it's now that you're laying down the foundations. While the money gods focused on income matters are less obvious and more focused on supporting the professional gods as they line up for income opportunities ahead, the focus on financial and money matters is very real, very obvious and very 'right now'. As Saturn spends just his second full month in your financial sector in 27 years and his first full month under your belt, you're starting to get a sense of what the hard task master of the cosmos is here for, what his mandates are likely to be and also how tough he's being on you. Not due to leave your financial sector until December 2017 and aware that you can only do what you can, with what you've got from where you're at, any immediate financial pressure will be on dealing with the things in front of you now, not what might or might not happen further down the track. Starting off the year with Saturn in your financial sector is a chance to start off doing things the right way, for Saturn requires accountability, that you take responsibility and that you don't ignore things, hoping they'll fix themselves. Saturn knows you can't change things overnight and he doesn't want you to, favouring those small baby steps that put the power back in your hands, with 2015 the year when you're able to become the master of your own financial destiny.
When the Sun left your financial sector last month this brought your annual financial review to an end, much earlier in the year than is normally the case. Last year Venus didn't leave until March and Mars didn't return at all, yet this year by the time you move into February you've had the financial reality checks and audits that always happen in December/January each year, your financial passions, desires and expectations are banked, you've got your head in the game, a smart head for money and a financial game plan to work to and this new financial year is at a point that will normally take you months to get to. In fact, you're so far ahead of where you normally are that you're likely to be looking at 'what next', with Ceres' first full month in your financial sector with fellow dwarf planet Pluto bringing you to a whole new phase. While Pluto, planet of change and revolution will spend the whole of 2015, Ceres will come and go, spending 26 weeks here, but spread over two visits. Together they're less interested in particular financial aspects or matters, as has been the case over recent months and more on your overall financial needs and priorities, with a chance to move into a much slower, deeper and long term appraisal period, making it important to keep an open mind. Meanwhile, while there's no planetary activity in your income sector you'll begin and end the month with the Moon here, which is compensation enough, especially with so much unfolding professionally this month. Coming full circle from last month's Full Moon in your income sector you'll move into the new month with a nose for money, just as Venus and Mars are getting your new professional year up to speed.
The focus will always be on financial and money matters at this time of year and no matter what you may do during the year to ward off that being the case, it will never work, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of February in your financial sector. This year there is a mix of financial tension, confidence, optimism and caution, all rolled into something so complex that you really do need to take things one step at a time. By the time you move into the new month Venus and Mars have been and gone, their financial passions, desires and fighting spirit have been banked, a New Moon last month created a chance for a fresh start and the Sun began your annual financial review on the 20th January. This means you should be ready to wrap things up, right? Wrong, with Mercury in retrograde motion and some hoops to jump through in the early days of the month this is still a work in progress and there's a need to keep your mind and your options open. While there may be some financial tension in the early days of the month, especially around the time of a Full Moon in your income sector on the 4th February and during the Sun and Jupiter's opposition on the 6th/7th February, with lucky Jupiter in your income sector and Mercury in retrograde motion, you've got luck, a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight to work with as income and financial forces clash. The only reason there is financial tension is because while this is always a time of year when the focus is on money matters, it's been 12 years since you've also had lucky Jupiter in your income sector, raising the bar on both fronts. This is something that will bear fruit when new professional doors open from the 20th February.
While the money and professional gods are already working together as you draw closer to the start of your luckiest and most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade, this is still several months away, with the focus this month firmly on financial and money matters. While that's the case and this is where your focus should be, in the back of your mind, as your new professional year hits its stride is the fact that there are lucrative times ahead. This makes it even more important to make the most of what is a chance this month to get a jump on your annual financial review before it officially begins. The one thing that you can count on, is that on or around the 19th February each year the Sun will return to your financial sector, where he'll spend a month throwing the solar spotlight on your financial situation, money matters and on everything that might normally slip under your radar or escape your attention. There is no ignoring things or sweeping things under the carpet when the Sun moves through, yet long before you even get to that stage some more exciting and flamboyant money gods are getting there first. Last year Venus didn't return to your financial sector until April and Mars didn't return at all, yet as you move into the new month here they both are; already firing up your financial passions, desires and fighting spirit. Because your annual financial review and reality checks haven't begun, you're not being forced to take care of any financial housekeeping or to keep it real. In the lead up to Mars' departure on the 20th February and Venus' on the 21st February they'll draw closer, to a point where by the time the Sun returns on the 19th February and the Moon moves through from the 19th February to the 21st February, you'll know what you want and you'll be ready to come out of your corner fighting. It's during your annual financial review that you'll begin the reality checks needed to start turning desires into reality.
Having the South Node in your financial sector and the North Node in your income sector from February 2014 to November 2015 creates a situation where the money gods are naturally working to keep things balanced and so long as you're working to achieve the same aim, you'll find things flow fairly smoothly, but also that surprise developments come along to push things on track. That is likely to be the case with income matters over recent months and especially as things start to come together on the work front, finding that without over thinking things that income opportunities crop up when and where you least expect. While the money gods will be working to maintain the right balance between money coming in and money going out, later in the month the focus will shift to financial matters, a month before you're due to begin your annual financial review. It's the Sun's return to your financial sector on the 21st March that will begin your annual financial review, something that happens at this time every year, except this year a pair of more exciting planets will get here first. Last year Venus didn't return to your financial sector until May and Mars didn't return at all, yet on the 20th February Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos will return, followed just a day later by Venus, planet of money, desire and attraction. They'll not only spend their early days aligned, but with the Moon moving through from the 21st February to the 23rd February your financial instincts will be especially sharp as your financial passions, desires and fighting spirit come together. From this point on sitting on the fence won't be an option, especially when something excites you, your financial passions and fighting spirit.
While the money gods are laying low this month they'll be waiting from the sidelines, with a clear divide between those focused on income matters and those focused on financial and money matters. The money gods assigned to money matters will be paying extra attention to the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 23rd February to the 25th February, for as the last visit before Venus returns next month and things start to move on the financial front, this will be a chance to tap into your financial instincts. You moved into the New Year with the Moon in your financial sector, so this will also be a chance to revisit the financial intentions and resolutions you moved into the year with. The money gods assigned to income matters are taking a different tack, not only paying attention during the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 10th February to the 13th February, but for the whole month and in a way that is less about looking forward and more about looking back. For while Saturn left your income sector on Christmas Eve, all that he's invested since returning in October 2012 is only now starting to bear fruit. When Saturn left, while he left you with a lot of resolve, the power to move mountains if you have to and a huge amount of untapped potential, it's only now that you're starting to gain some traction on the work front that you're even starting to tap into this. By the time the Moon moves through your income sector from the 10th February to the 13th February, Venus and Mars will be in your work sector and the nose for money this brings will prove priceless as they work to not only get things moving on the work front, but to uncover all the untapped income potential Saturn left you with you.
While Saturn returned to your income sector on Christmas Eve until now you haven't had a chance to fully appreciate the power this has given you, especially when it comes to bulldozing your way through old glass ceilings, believing in yourself and finding the determination and resolve to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to get what you deserve. As you move into the new month, apart from the Moon's visit to your income sector last month and the nose for money this gave you, with Jupiter in retrograde motion in your career sector and Uranus still recovering from his months in retrograde motion in your work sector, your new professional year has yet to gain the kind of traction that Saturn and income advantages need - until now. While it may be business as usual to start with, a Full Moon in your career sector on the 4th February will be the first sign that the professional gods are starting to wake up, something that is essential if you're going to flex your income muscles. This is not only a shot across the bows to ensure you're paying attention, it will bring some timely work/life balance reminders, something that is more important to take heed of than you realise. For it's not just income matters that will benefit from Mars' return to your work sector on the 20th February and Venus' on the 21st February, with everything across the income, work and career board all of a sudden lightening up. This will not only kick off the busiest week of 2015 but some of the most potential lucrative, weeks that will witness a major professional turnaround. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 13th February to the 15th February will fall in between the Full Moon in your career sector on the 4th February and Mars' return to your work sector on the 20th February, giving you a nose for money when you need it most.
There is no doubt that Pluto, planet of change and revolution likes company, spending the majority of his time in your income sector, from 2008 to 2024 on his own. With Mars having left your income sector in December and the Sun, Mercury and Venus all having left last month this should be Pluto's fate this month, with the annual push over early in the year, mainly because it began so early last year, in October rather than December. This means that most of the momentum that income opportunities will need has already been invested and with new doors opening on the work front next month and major new career doors opening midyear, this leaves you with a huge amount of untapped potential, just waiting for the right professional conditions to come together. You'll find clues that will help you to start lining up at the right doors before they open when the Moon moves through your work sector from the 23rd February to the 25th February, for the last time before new doors open and also professionally as a whole when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 5th February to the 8th February. However, unlike previous years Pluto is not back on his own and joining him for 26 weeks out of 2015's 52 weeks is fellow dwarf planet Ceres, goddess of the solar system. While they wait for new doors to open on the work front next month Ceres and Pluto are able to get on with the job of redefining your income expectations, needs and priorities, looking beyond the money to all the currencies in your life. If that means you need to make some changes and adjustments then Pluto, planet of change and revolution will be more than happy to help with that.
While the focus is always on income matters in February, it's unusual to already have had so much water pass under the bridge, for there to be so many shifts ahead or to have the financial tension you're likely to be moving into the month with, all of which is more opportune than you might think. On face value this should be fait accompli, with Venus and Mars already been and gone, Mercury here since early last month, the Sun since the 20th January and a New Moon having already given things the go ahead. However, things are far from accomplished or even close to a point where you're ready to draw a line in the sand, though you should be by the time a second New Moon falls on the 19th February. Last month's New Moon not only fell during the Sun's first full day in your income sector but a day before Mercury turned retrograde, before a Full Moon in your financial sector on the 4th February could bring both income and financial matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point and before the Sun and Jupiter's opposition on the 6th/7th February could bring any simmering tensions to a head. By the time Mercury turns direct on the 12th February, a week before a New Moon will bring a second chance for a fresh start, you'll have had a chance to spend time back at the drawing board, with a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight. Yet the only reason why there is likely to be some financial tension in those first 12 days of the month, is because while the Sun moves through your income sector at this time every year it's been 12 years since you've had lucky Jupiter, over on the other side of the sky and in opposition in your financial sector. This is raising the bar on both fronts, but where there is financial tension you'll also have financial opportunities and a chance for both an income and financial breakthrough.
While the solar spotlight will always fall on income matters in February, it's often not until the Sun returns on the 19th February. Last year Venus didn't return to your income sector until April, after the Sun had already been and gone and Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos didn't move through at all. Yet as you move into February, weeks before the Sun is due to return, there Venus and Mars are, the planets of money and passion working together to fuel your desires, expectations, passions and fighting spirit. With Mars not leaving until the 20th February and Venus until the 21st February, they'll still be here when the Sun returns on the 19th February. The 19th February is destined to be an auspicious day for income matters, for it has all the qualities of a New Moon with none of the responsibilities. The Moon will return to your income sector just 1 minute after aligning with the Sun to form a New Moon in your sign and the Sun just 2 minutes later, with the New Moon missing out from peaking here by just 3 minutes. With the Sun and Moon returning minutes apart, still effectively aligned, with all the momentum of the New Moon behind them just as Mars is spending his last full day in your income sector and with Venus due to leave 2 days later, this will not only ensure you have a nose for money as you transition between sensing what's possible and making it happen, but will create the potential for an income breakthrough. The Moon will stay on until the 21st February, giving you a nose for money and an intuitive edge as Venus and Mars leave and as the Sun takes their seat, taking over from where they left off. In an auspicious month for income matters, everything could come together between the 19th and 21st February. Next month the New Moon will fall here, with more opportunities to come.
Apart from every reason for feeling confident, especially with the tide having turned on the income front just before Christmas, lucky Jupiter in your work sector and Saturn in your career sector, there isn't an explanation for why you're likely to move into the month with high expectations and a sense of anticipation. That's especially so if you're using logic and past experience rather than trusting your gut and your sixth sense, with a need to trust that there is more to this than blind faith and wishful thinking. It's not just a Full Moon in your work sector on the 4th February that will boost your income confidence, but the fact that there are some very real opportunities that are set to strike so suddenly and so dramatically that it's no wonder your antennas are already picking up on this. Everything changes during a 4 day period from the 20th February to the 23rd February, a period that could have both short and long term consequences, bringing you to a point where nothing after this point will ever be the same again. It begins with Mars' return to your income sector on the 20th February, followed less than 24 hours later by Venus, whose return on the 21st February kicks off a 3 day alignment, one that becomes even more auspicious when the Moon becomes involved. The Moon will return to your income sector just hours behind Venus, not only giving you a nose for money as the planets of money and passion align, but in the process are creating a rare triple alignment. The last time there was a triple alignment between the Moon, Venus and Mars, involving your gut, heart and passions was in 2009 and the last time this happened in your income sector was in 1981, 34 years ago. With lucky Jupiter in your work sector, for the first time in 12 years and Saturn in your career sector for the first time in 27 years, for those few days quite literally the stars align in the most lucrative way possible, which is set to have game changing consequences on the income, work and career fronts.
