While income matters and your earnings potential will get a boost from the major developments on the work front this month, with a chance to access untapped income potential as major new doors open when lucky Jupiter returns to your work sector on the 11th August, the money gods themselves are more focused on money matters as a whole. This is putting all your income potential in the hands of the professional gods, something the money gods will be grateful for and you'll get to benefit from, if not immediately then over the coming months. In the meantime, with Saturn spending his last full month in your financial sector, not to return for another 27 years, the focus is on taking care of any financial housekeeping and then building the foundations for future financial growth. The housekeeping period should be all but over by the time you move into the new month, with Saturn's direct turn on the 2nd August shifting the focus onto the future and the journey ahead. Saturn left your financial sector last December but returned in June for a 3 month double dip visit aimed at taking care of any unfinished business, any financial housekeeping and a chance to learn from the past, with the focus shifting to how you can apply this moving forward. Your financial and professional confidence should get a boost as not only Jupiter but a parade of planets return to your work sector this month, giving you the confidence to take your power back financially. However, Saturn is a planet that demands that you first confront the choices, decisions and actions of the past, taking ownership of where you've been and where to from here. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 6th August to the 8th August will ensure that you have a nose for money as new doors start to open on the work front, while a visit to your financial sector from the 20th August to the 23rd August will sharpen your financial instincts and bring a chance to start bringing things home. As the last visit before Saturn leaves next month, any important messages will be delivered through your emotional and intuitive responses.
You've got a whole new experience as you move into August, the first and only full month this year and the last until January 2018 where you have no planetary activity in either of your money houses, with a chance to keep your money hat off for the majority of the month. Apart from the Moon's visits to your income sector from the 8th August to the 11th August and to your financial sector from the 23rd August to the 25th August, the money gods will be nowhere to be seen, with a chance to catch your breath and get your bearings. It was only last month that Mercury's departure from your income sector brought a very active 3 months to an end, months that have left you with plenty of untapped potential and everything you need to fuel income opportunities over the coming year. At the same time with Saturn returning to your financial sector next month it will soon be time to put your money hat back on in a way that will become an almost permanent fixture, until he leaves in December 2017. You need this break in order to get your bearings, with the Moon's monthly visits important in their own right and for their own reasons. You'll have a chance to start accessing untapped income potential when Mercury returns to your work sector on the 28th October, opening the door to the most active months of the year for work matters, with developments continuing to unfold for the majority of the year. The Moon's visit to your financial sector, from the 23rd August to the 25th August is the last before Saturn returns next month, making it important to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, paying attention to the message behind any emotional and intuitive responses.
The financial tensions that dogged much of July have not only eased back but have been replaced with a new sense of resolve and confidence, mainly because of the money gods on duty and their relationships with the other planets in the solar system. Pluto, in retrograde motion in your financial sector got a hammering last month when a parade of planets moving through your income sector all moved into opposition, but with a lot of support this month and Ceres retrograding back in for a double dip visit on the 4th August you're already able to turn this into an opportunity to redefine your financial priorities and over the course of the month your whole definition of financial success. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is staying on in your income sector to tie up loose ends and to put things on the track you want them to continue on and while his opposition with Ceres on the 7th/9th August might see financial tensions rise to the surface again, this is what the warrior planet of the cosmos thrives on. On a mission to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings, this will see your fighting spirit emerge just when you need it most, with Mars leaving on the 9th August. Helping to boost your confidence and a sense of entitlement on the income front is support from Saturn in your work sector and Neptune and Chiron in your career sector. This makes it less about hoping opportunities will fall in your lap and more about fighting for what you deserve. With no planetary activity in your income sector once Mars leaves the Moon's visit from the 11th August to the 13th August will provide a timely nose for money, an intuitive read on where to from here and the means to keep your fighting spirit fuelled.
It is always the case that Jupiter will deliver his most important gifts either in his final days or after he leaves and this month you've got both bases covered. While lucky Jupiter will leave your income sector on the 11th August, not to return until 2024 this doesn't mean that your luck will end and if anything this is when it will kick in. The only planet making sure that Jupiter's final days are exploited and that you have the support to ensure the gifts left behind are seized on is Venus, planet of money, desire and attraction. Venus left your income sector on the 19th July, but not before having spent 6 weeks with Jupiter, fuelling your income desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement and attracting or setting up opportunities. Just 13 days after leaving Venus will retrograde back in on the 1st August, in time to play an important role during Jupiter's final 10 days, during Mercury's final days and as Mars returns on the 9th August. With a smart head for money, luck on your side, your passions and fighting spirit engaged and the doors open to both new opportunities and second chances, if there are opportunities out there Venus and the rest of the crew will help find them. Yet even after Jupiter leaves on the 11th August, Mercury on the 8th August and the Sun on the 23rd August you won't have even begun to tap into your full potential, with Mars here until the 25th September and Venus until the 9th October. The first 11 days of the month bring you to a point where everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from, with a need to be ready to put everything on the line and to believe in yourself, in what you're worth and that you have luck and the money gods on your side.
While the solar spotlight will always fall on income matters at this time of year, with the Sun's return to your income sector on the 23rd August guaranteeing at least some focus on income matters, nothing in previous years have prepared you for what this year is set to deliver. The very least you can expect in any given year is the Sun, Mercury and Venus to move through, always at this time of year, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options, giving you a smart head for money and the means to attract opportunities. That's the very least you can expect, but once every other year Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returns, fuelling your fighting spirit and giving you an urge to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings and to fight for what you deserve. If nothing else Mars' return to your income sector on the 9th August makes this one of the better years as far as income opportunities and potential are concerned, but it's an event 2 days later that blows everything out of the water, bringing you to the start of your luckiest, most expansive and potentially lucrative income year in over a decade. That event is lucky Jupiter's return to your income sector on the 11th August, opening the door to your luckiest income year in over a decade but also a period where, while he'll leave next September the wheels will continue turning right through to May 2017. This is something you've already got a jump on thanks to Venus' return last month and while she'll retrograde back out on the 1st August, the 13 days she has already spent here have helped fuel your desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement, ready for what comes next.
You've reached a point in the year where, while the money gods have been working all year to keep income and financial matters balanced, the balance shifts towards income matters. The money gods look at the year as a whole and with the most active months of the year for money matters having run its course between February and April, it's the turn of income matters or will be by the end of the month. It's Mercury's return to your income sector on the 28th August for what should be a short 15 day visit aimed at giving you a smart head for money and a chance to get your head in the game that turns into something much more, with this smart and intellectually savvy planet not leaving until the 2nd November. With Venus and Mars running late and due to return just days after Mercury's departure, staying on in Mars' case until January, what starts with small beginnings at the end of this month will continue to unfold for the rest of the year. This sets the scene for the final 4 months of 2015 to be the most lucrative, making it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground during the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 18th August to the 20th August. As the last visit before Mercury returns this will be a valuable chance to tap into the nose for money the Moon will always bring. However, until then there is a need to put as much focus on money matters as possible, with Uranus' retrograde turn in your financial sector late last month bringing you to the start of an annual review, with a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. With the money gods working to keep financial and income matters balanced this will be much easier this month, with all your focus on money matters through the rear view mirror and all your focus on income matters about looking to the future.
While the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 6th August to the 8th August will give you and the money gods a chance to focus on financial matters, the majority of the month is all about income matters and not just because Mars' final days in your career sector is providing the professional push that income opportunities need. It was earlier in the year that the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus all moved through your financial sector, with a period of financial housekeeping behind you and any focus on money matters more about keeping the wheels turning, with the Moon's monthly visits a chance to check that you're on track. This isn't a time of year when the focus has turned to income matters, something that usually happens in October. However, Saturn retrograded back in June for a 3 month catch up, coinciding with the most active months of your professional year and a chance to ensure no stone has been left unturned. This isn't at the expanse of the income opportunities that will open up in October and in fact is preparing for some extremely fruitful times ahead with Mars spending almost half of 2016 in your income sector. Having left your income sector in December Saturn has come back to check on things, but his direct turn on the 2nd August will shift the focus onto the road ahead, having had a chance to spend time looking back through the rear view mirror. Saturn will turn retrograde just as Mars moves into his final week in your career sector and with your professional passions and fighting spirit fuelled this is a chance to line up your professional and income objectives. As Mars is the planet that will bring next year's exceptional income opportunities this gives both planets a chance to line up for what lies ahead.
On face value you have a very low key month, with the money gods almost nowhere to be seen. As the first and only full month this year where you're able to keep your money hat off and the last in fact until January 2018, this is an opportunity that needs to be seized. However, don't be deceived by first impressions, for the money gods have put income matters in the hands of the professional gods and while Saturn will return to your income sector next month, taking you into the most powerful income years in 3 decades, he took a step in June to take himself out of the game. This allows you to put all your focus into the exceptional professional developments this month, with lucky Jupiter leaving your career sector on the 11th August but the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars coming together to not only bring things home but continue to explore and exploit all the income potential this opens the door to. With Mars not leaving your career sector until next month and Venus not leaving until October, but Saturn returning to your income sector next month, most of the hard work will already be done and there'll be a natural progression from creating the professional momentum to exploring the income potential that will come from this. Saturn will return to your income sector next month but won't leave until December 2017, with his step back out of your income sector a strategic one, allowing you to focus on getting things moving professionally. However, the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 23rd August to the 25th August will bring a nose for money into play just as things are really starting to come together professionally. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 8th August to the 11th August will be a chance to get your financial bearings and take care of any financial housekeeping.
After a clash between income and financial forces last month brought financial tensions to a head you could be a little weary moving into the new month, despite the fact that this had already turned around in the final days of July. While there is one more opposition between income and financial forces to play out, they are both so well supported by this stage and your financial confidence is buoyant enough to very easily turn this into motivation and a better sense of what you're fighting for. As you move into the new month Mars is the only planet left in your financial sector and due to leave on the 9th August, his focus is on fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit, especially now that your annual financial review is behind you. However, it's on the income front that there is a real turnaround this month, for rather than being put off by a parade of oppositions Pluto, in retrograde motion in your income sector is awake, fuelling a sense of rebellion and holding the door open to second chances. It was Venus' return to your career sector on the 19th July that provided the first break and in retrograde motion since the 25th July as you move into the new month you're coming to the end of a 7 day period where the doors have been open to second chances on the income and career fronts at the same time. While Venus will retrograde back out on the 1st August with Mercury returning to your career sector on the 8th August, lucky Jupiter on the 11th August and the Sun on the 23rd August, you're on the doorstep of your biggest, most expansive and potentially successful professional year in over a decade, a year that Pluto is there to ensure you profit from as well. It's Ceres' return to your income sector on the 4th August that results in an opposition with Mars on the 7th/9th August and while this may create some financial tension this is more a chance to redefine your priorities and get a better sense of what you're fighting for.
While, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of August in your financial sector the focus is always going to be on money matters at this time of year, it's not usually to the extent it is this year. That the focus is on money matters is an understatement and the best way to describe where things stand financially is to say that this is the point that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from and that is no exaggeration. In July 2014, just days before the Sun returned to begin your annual financial review, lucky Jupiter returned and he's been here ever since, laying down the foundations for financial success and for a complete redefining of your definition of financial success. Due to leave on the 11th August and not return until 2024 Jupiter is literally in his final days as you move into the new month, with the Sun shining the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options and Mercury there, ensuring you have your head in the game and a smart head for money to work with. After leaving last month Venus will retrograde back in on the 1st August, aligning with Jupiter for the second time this year, on the 4th/6th August, creating some auspicious days for money matters. In retrograde motion for the whole of August, Venus will align with every planet moving through your financial sector including Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos after he returns on the 9th August. It's after Mercury leaves on the 8th August, Jupiter on the 11th August and the Sun on the 23rd August that Venus and Mars will stay on, with your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit coming together to exploit and explore every possible advantage. With Mars not leaving until September and Venus here until October, this is just the stage of exploring the potential you've spent a year laying down the foundations for. Yet with Ceres in your income sector until the 4th August and a Full Moon here until the 2nd August, exploiting the potential from a Full Moon on the 31st July, it's the early days of the month that are especially auspicious for income matters.
August is always the month that the reign of income forces not so much comes to an end but where financial matters also get a look in, with the money gods starting to divide their focus. With continuous planetary activity in your income sector since 2003 and Neptune here until 2026 you've had the money gods on permanent duty there for years and will do for years to come and with your financial sector only active for a few months each year, this is a chance to gain some perspective. Normally income forces, always in retrograde motion at this time of year, are happy to share the money gods' attention, especially as it's only for a few months, except money matters are fighting back. Yes, the Sun will return on the 23rd August, throwing the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options as he does at this time every year and Mercury, moving through from the 8th August to the 28th August will give you a smart head for money and a chance to get your head in the game, but that's where the similarities between any other year begin and end. The fact that Venus is already here is a sign that something is up, especially as she retrogrades back out on the 1st August. Yet apart from your financial desires and expectations and a heightened sense of financial confidence, there is nothing to suggest how dramatically things are due to shift. And shift they do when on the 11th August lucky Jupiter returns to your financial sector for the first time since 2004, kicking off your luckiest and most expansive year for financial matters in over a decade. With Mars returning next month and Venus in October, this is just the start of a financial comeback. However, with Jupiter here until next September and other developments keeping things active through to May 2017, income forces are finally getting a run for their money, keeping them on their toes in a way that could see a Full Moon on the 30th August create an opportunity for a real breakthrough.
While the journey to keep income and money matters balanced hasn't always been an easy one, with the two lunar nodes positioned in your two money houses, this has been the ultimate aim of the money gods, something they seem to have finally managed to pull off. You've reached a good month for both financial and money matters, yet there is no conflict between the two, with any speed bumps and the kind of challenges that could create some financial tension not coming until next month, as is the case each September. In the meantime Uranus, who only just turned retrograde in your income sector on the 26th July, is still in the early days of holding the doors open to second chances on the income front when Venus retrogrades back into your work sector, holding the doors open to second chances on the work front right through to early September. This comes just as lucky Jupiter's final days in your work sector and the massive amount of support, both before and after his departure on the 11th August, brings you to a point in your professional year where everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. This puts a lot of focus on income matters for the majority of the month, with money matters getting their turn when Mercury returns to your financial sector on the 28th August, with a chance to get your head in the game and work with his smart head for money to get a jump on money matters. With Mercury due to turn retrograde in your financial sector next month, while you'll retain your forward momentum on the work front more and more doors are opening to the past and second chances, with access to the rear view mirror.
