Despite a sense of urgency on the financial front in the early days of the month, this will soon ease off or more aptly burn out. What you have in the early days of the month is the tail end of Mars' most important visit to your financial sector in 79 years, one that is leaving you with your financial passions and fighting spirit banked and the kind of motivation that will take months to shake off, and only if you worked at it, but why would you? On the 4th January Mars returned for what should have been a six week visit aimed at fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit, with a chance to take your power back and fight to once more become the master of your financial destiny. Now, eight months on, the warrior planet of the cosmos is finally on his way, but unlike his departure in early March, when he leaves on the 3rd August he won't do a U turn and come back and instead won't be back for another two years. Having spent the majority of the first seven months of 2016 fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit your job of keeping them fuelled and continuing to fight for your own financial needs and rights shouldn't be difficult. In the meantime, Mars' departure will see a dramatic shift in focus by the money gods and not just because this will allow them to turn all their focus onto income matters, just as things start coming together on the work front. The focus not only shifts to income matters but in a more subtle way than Mars' bull in a china store approach to financial and money matters. Here Ceres, spending her first full month in your income sector in four years, is supporting lucky Jupiter in his final month in your work sector, not only by attracting income opportunities but working from within to raise the bar on your expectations, a belief in yourself and in what you deserve.
While to start with it is business as usual on the financial front this month, which means that Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos is in control, it is all about taking ownership of your own financial destiny and as has been the case since March, the focus is on the rear view mirror. Saturn, the only planet in either of your two money houses, is in your financial sector from December 2014 to December 2017 and in retrograde motion since March another month means more of the same, right? Wrong. Things do start out as a continuation of every other month so far this year, though missing is the financial tensions of recent months, but there are signs that something is getting ready to shift. To start with this may be felt as a sense of anticipation but a call to hold back. Due to turn direct on the 13th August Saturn is already at a crawl by the time you move into the new month and will have come to a standstill within days, with the money gods asking that you hold back and in all financial and money matters that you measure twice and cut once. That shouldn't be a problem until Mars returns on the 3rd August, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit and a need for action. Mars will have his foot on the accelerator from the get go and as this is a double dip visit, he's already spent months earlier in the year fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit and knows exactly where to apply them. Yet with Saturn having his very large foot on the brake you're not going anywhere. This may create some frustration over that 10 day period, between Mars' return on the 3rd August and Saturn's direct turn on the 13th August, but during that time you can channel those financial passions and fighting spirit into making the final days where the doors to the past are open count. This also means that Saturn's direct turn on the 13th August is likely to create a fairly dramatic and noticeable turnaround. With your foot on the accelerator as the brakes are released, expect financial and money matters to take off.
There is a chance this month for the money gods and financial and money matters themselves to pull back and to let things settle. The Sun's departure from your income sector on the 24th July not only brought all planetary activity for the year to a close, this took the pressure off financial forces and with it the financial tension of the last few months has dropped right back. The reality is you needed that financial tension and during the only active months for income opportunities and developments this year, this kept you on your toes. It is the professional gods that will keep the income momentum going, with a need to trust that this is in safe hands. In the meantime Pluto, who is now in his last full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector can lick his wounds, grateful that he not only no longer has to compete for your attention, but the pressure from recent months is over. However, this is less a case of the money gods focused on financial and money matters as a whole licking their wounds and more a case of one last month where you're able to spend time back at the drawing board, regrouping and looking back over recent months and how this may have altered your overall financial attitudes and perceptions. With a lot of support for Pluto there is every reason for financial confidence, with this month more a chance to regroup and with your income expectations sorted and plenty of support from the professional gods to keep the momentum going, to get back to the drawing board. You're halfway through a 16 year journey to revolutionise your attitude and approach to financial and money matters, with a lot to process and mull over this month. In the meantime, the key to keeping income matters on track is paying attention to your nose for money during the Moon's two visits to your income sector. The Moon will begin the month in your income sector and will return from the 27th August to the 29th August.
This is always going to be the most potentially lucrative time of any year for you, with the Sun not only spending the first three weeks of August in your income sector each year, but with Mercury and Venus always close by the smart head for money and confidence to go after the prize. While you will move into the month with the Sun and Venus in your income sector, Mercury's departure on the 31st July means that you're already starting to tie up loose ends and bring things home. By the time you move into the new month Mercury only left less than 24 hours earlier, giving you a smart head for money from the get go and the means to keep your head in the game. With Venus leaving on the 6th August there is some urgency in the early days of the month when it comes to believing in yourself, in what you deserve and in what's possible, for that is key to making the laws of attraction she triggers as effective as possible. Venus will be here when a New Moon on the 3rd August brings the potential for income opportunities and beginnings, as well as a chance to draw a new line in the sand. Falling during Venus' final days this was always destined to be a potentially lucrative New Moon, but with Mars returning to your work sector on the same day, this could trigger a real breakthrough. With Uranus spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector and Saturn in retrograde motion in your work sector until the 13th August, as new income opportunities open up the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the work and career fronts. This is likely to see the professional investment and momentum already banked finally bear fruit. That period from the 3rd August to the 6th August holds the potential for some real breakthroughs across the income and work fronts. Venus' departure on the 6th August won't bring things to a close, with the Sun staying on until the 23rd August, keeping the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. A Full Moon in your financial sector on the 18th August will not only keep you on your toes and provide a trigger for income and financial matters, but suggests something fateful might be in play.
While the Sun's return to your income sector on the 23rd August is an annual event and will always see the solar spotlight fall onto your income situation, matters and options at this time each year, long before then it was clear that this was never going to be a typical update. It was just days before the Sun's return last year that lucky Jupiter returned to begin what has the potential to be your biggest and most potentially successful income year in over a decade and by the time the Sun comes full circle that yearlong journey is now in its final days. However, at the start of the month, with Jupiter not due to leave your income sector until the 9th September, this is still almost six weeks away and thanks to Mercury's return on the 31st July, the 1st August is literally the first full day where you have your head in the game, a smart head for money to work with and the support needed to bring things home. This draws a real line in the sand, separating the year so far and what comes next, with everything up to the 31st July all about the big picture and lining things up for the potential for success and everything from the 1st August all about a concentrated effort to bring things home and make things happen. Normally spending just 15 days getting your head in the game and giving you a smart head for money to work with, by mid August it will be clear that Mercury is going nowhere and instead is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on the 31st August that will open the doors to the past, second chances and untapped potential, while giving a smart head for money 20/20 hindsight. Not due to leave until the 7th October that's how long the money gods are giving you to bring things home. Support will flood in during the month, continuing with Venus' return on the 6th August. As well as fuelling your confidence, desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement Venus is able to trigger the laws of attraction, attracting income opportunities and working with lucky Jupiter until she leaves on the 30th August, these could be the most potentially lucky and auspicious income days of the year. The Sun's return on the 23rd August will shine the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options and with Jupiter leaving on the 9th September, this is when everything comes together.
The is the month before the big one as far as income matters are concerned and by big I'm talking really big as in game changing. Since Mars' departure from your income sector on the 4th January there has been no more planetary activity since then, despite the big promises and intentions you moved into the year with, yet on the 9th September the money gods are set to reveal those to be anything but false promises. For it is on the 9th September that lucky Jupiter will return to your income sector to begin your most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade, one that will have its beginnings in the final hours of August. Yet as far back as the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 7th August to the 9th August there is a need to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, trusting what a nose for money is telling you. By the time the Moon leaves lucky Jupiter will be exactly a month away, with the money gods aiming to leave you with the insights and nose for money needed to start lining up in front of new doors before they open. More concrete support arrives with Venus on the 30th August, triggering off what will always be the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year. Still here when Jupiter returns next month, Venus will be here to take advantage of what will be triggered when the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year meet the most potentially lucrative opportunities in over a decade. This is a journey that will take until October 2017 to play out, but already there is a sense of expectancy that needs to be embraced. In the meantime, the money gods are making the most of not only the final month where it is all about financial and money matters, but where in Uranus' first full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector there is a chance to spend time back at the drawing board.
If you're going to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind, then it needs to happen in the early days of the month. In reality this is the tail end of a mission that has been playing out for the majority of the year, ever since Mars' return to your income sector on the 4th January. That was when the warrior planet of the cosmos returned for what should have been a six week mission to fire up your passions and fighting spirit and to see glass flying and while he left and came back, when he leaves on the 3rd August Mars won't be back for another two years. The fact that this is over and above your normal allocation of planetary activity for the year and that your normal allocation is yet to come, means that Mars is able to focus on smashing through glass ceilings, knowing that help is on the way and to plunder what lies on the other side. This is the push to break through barriers and to come out fighting for what you deserve. The Moon will move through your income sector from the 9th August to the 12th August and returning just days after Mars' departure, this will bring the nose for money needed to tie up loose ends and package a sense of resolve into a game plan moving forward. It is Mars' departure that will not only see the money gods step back from income matters, letting things run their course for now, but will shift it back onto financial and money matters as a whole. While you have been working behind the scenes to update your financial needs and priorities and in fact your whole definition of financial success, this will move to the forefront once an income push has run its course. Don't think that this will bring all income opportunities for the year to an end, for with another active period opening up in October, this is more a chance to let things settle and play out.
That things are due to take off on the income front this month and that there is an opportunity for both a breakthrough and a turnaround is one thing, but it is what is happening on the work and career fronts at the same time that makes this such a game changer. Across the income, work and career fronts it is where everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. This is always a time of year when the spotlight is on your professional game, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector and this in turn creates the potential for income opportunities down the track, normally in November and December, traditionally the most potentially lucrative months of any year for you. However, the money gods aren't waiting, with Mars' return to your income sector on the 3rd August creating the potential for a breakthrough, just 10 days before Saturn's direct turn here creates the potential for a major turnaround. With Uranus spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the work front, as new doors open on the career front and the money gods step into the game, this really is the month you've been waiting for and the month that everything else will spring on from. To start with there could be some frustration, for Mars will return to inflict some serious damage on any glass ceilings, but with Saturn still in retrograde motion, the handbrake will be on and the lights still red. However that gives you 10 days to line up where Mars' passions and fighting spirit can be best directed, stopping his hot headed enthusiasm from running away on itself before you've had a chance to think things through, allowing you to measure twice and cut once.
The Sun's departure from your financial sector on the 24th July has created a win/win situation across both the income and financial fronts, one that sees both sides better off. With your annual financial review and reality checks over, but a smart head for money and clear objectives developed over recent months, this allows you to take your power back and put money matters on a track that is easy to maintain, while letting the money gods shift their focus back onto income matters and the timing couldn't be better. With the money gods no longer focused on financial and money matters as a whole and your annual update behind you and any housekeeping either taken care of or so obvious you know what has to be done, the focus shifts to making Pluto's last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector count. Thanks to a strong partnership that has been building for nearly a year now, as lucky Jupiter moves into his final month in your career sector there is no doubt that he'll be taking his trusty friend Pluto and untapped income potential along for the ride. Throughout what at times has been a challenging professional year, the one constant has been the support between income and career forces and as things come together professionally, income opportunities can't help but follow. The professional gods have come together to create concrete support between forces on the work and career fronts and while lucky Jupiter will leave your career sector on the 9th September, the professional gods will keep the wheels turning through mid October. With Pluto turning direct in your income sector next month, a partnership between income, work and career forces will continue through these final weeks in retrograde motion and as the tide turns, there is a lot to get excited about with both professional and financial confidence justified.
The focus is always going to be on financial and money matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your financial sector, shining the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters. The Sun is always charged with keeping it real, knowing that you can't create an authentic new starting point or take your financial power back if you don't have your eyes open and head out of the sand. With Mercury and Venus having both returned weeks before the Sun, this brought a chance to get your heart and head in the game before the reality checks began. Having just left your financial sector on the 31st July, Mercury gives you a smart head for money from the get go, while he himself has moved on. Venus will leave your financial sector on the 6th August, putting her here during a New Moon on the 3rd August, one that will create an opportunity for new beginnings and opportunities, but more importantly a chance to draw a line in the sand, ready to commit to your financial plans, options, intentions and resolutions for the coming year. Until she leaves on the 6th August Venus is charged with fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations, with the Sun staying on to provide the reality checks needed in order to turn desire and expectations into reality. With all planetary activity in your financial sector and all focus on financial and money matters ending when the Sun leaves your financial sector on the 23rd August, a Full Moon on the 18th August will keep you on your toes. While falling in your income sector this Full Moon will bring the potential to bring both financial and income matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point, with major new professional doors opening early next month the real potential might not be realised at the time, but having a ripple effect weeks or even months down the line.
While the Sun's return to your financial sector on the 23rd August is an annual event and will always mean that at some point this is the month when the focus shifts to financial and money matters, the reality is the focus has never been off money matters this year. When the Sun returned to your financial sector last year lucky Jupiter was in his early days of his first visit in over a decade and a year on will return to find him still here, though now in his final weeks, ready to bring things home. Jupiter has been working since August 2015 to expand both your means to take your financial power back and the support from the money gods. Though the journey hasn't always been easy and there have been financial challenges along the way, there is a chance this month to work with Jupiter to make this a defining month for financial and money matters, the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. Due to leave on the 9th September Jupiter's final weeks were always going to be the most powerful, but it is only now that you're ready to start making things happen and even 24 hours before moving into August you were still waiting for the green light. Not just an arbitrary date on a calendar, Monday 1st August is Mercury's first full day in your financial sector and the first full day of a push to bring things home. Normally Mercury will spend 15 days giving you a chance to get your head in the game and work with his smart head for money to make smart financial choices, decisions and plans, but 15 days will come and go and instead of moving on he will slow down, with a retrograde turn on the 31st August, a month to the day after returning, creating a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. Meanwhile, Venus' return on the 6th April will bring a chance to spend the majority of the month fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations and it is as the planets of money and luck come together that you're finally able to appreciate that you do have luck and the money gods on your side. By the time the Sun returns to your financial sector on the 23rd August you'll already be working with the money gods to create your own luck.
Forget everything you thought you knew about your income options and financial reality, for the money gods are getting ready to completely change things around, with your biggest and most potentially lucky year for financial and money matters in over a decade beginning next month. While this is something that won't have an impact until next month, by the time the Moon moves through from the 7th August to the 9th August there will be a sense of anticipation in the air, with Venus' return on the 30th August putting the planet of money, desire and attraction in charge of setting things up. There has been no planetary activity in your financial sector since Mars left on the 4th January, but having moved into the New Year with the warrior planet of the cosmos on board and the fact that he knew what lay ahead, this created expectations that until now haven't been realised. By the time Venus returns to begin her annual job of fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations lucky Jupiter will be just 10 days away, reigniting the original financial passions and fighting spirit you moved into the year with. However, the money gods won't be twiddling their thumbs until then and instead will be busy making the most of what is the last full month until November 2017 where their focus is solely on income matters and the timing couldn't be better. Having only just turned retrograde in your income sector on the 30th July Uranus is still in his early days in retrograde motion as you move into the new month, with the doors only just opening to the past, second chances and untapped potential at what is a critical point of your professional year. With new doors opening on the work front until the 23rd August, the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the career front until the 13th August and a major new career thrust beginning 10 days earlier, on the 3rd August, the professional and money gods are working together to make this a game changing month across the income, work and career fronts.
