It is likely to have been with a sigh of relief that Saturn, the hard task master of the cosmos left your financial sector on Christmas Eve, meaning that for the first time in 3 years he's not with you as you move into the New Year. Saturn returned in 2012 to begin your toughest learning curve in 3 decades, empowering you to take your power back, deal with issues, take responsibility and face things head on. Things got a little easier as time went on and in the later months of 2014 you were most likely a well oiled machine, knowing exactly what is required of you, what your financial priorities are and how to stay on task. This brings you to a point where you're able to move into the New Year as the complete master of your own destiny, knowing that your financial reality lies in your hands and that after graduating from the School of Hard Knocks that you're ready for a fresh start. While Saturn will return in June for a short catch up before moving on for good, not to return for another 3 decades, the hardest part is over. Whatever financial challenges you've faced over the last 2 and half years need to be seen as learning experiences and empowering. However, don't be surprised if it feels like something is missing, for January is the first month you've moved into since August 2012 that has no planetary activity in your financial sector, or in either of your money houses for that matter, with the reins firmly in your hands. The Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 14th January to the 16th January, the first since Saturn left, will sharpen your financial instincts and bring a chance to get your bearings. The Moon will move into the New Year in your income sector, will leave on the 2nd January and will return from the 27th January to the 29th January, allowing you to move into the New Year with a nose for money and then again when your new professional year is underway.
For the first time since 1988 you'll move into the New Year with Saturn, hard task master of the cosmos in your financial sector, but having just returned on Christmas Eve this is something you're still adjusting to. Saturn returned to begin a campaign to see you take your power back, but as it won't run its course until December 2017 this is one that there is no hurry or urgency over. Saturn is ultimately here to put the reins back in your hands, to teach you how much power you have over your own destiny and that financial challenges can be the pathway to financial opportunities. Saturn returned just 2 days after the Sun left your financial sector, wrapping up the annual financial review that takes place in November/December each year, so you're at the perfect point for a fresh start. If you are going to make New Year resolutions then focus on financial matters, for Saturn is the planet that gives you self control, discipline, will power and determination and as he'll spend all but the middle months of the year in your financial sector, he'll stay by your side, determined to see you follow through. This doesn't mean that you'll have financial challenges this year, but it does mean that you won't be able to sweep things under the carpet. When you approach financial and money matters by taking full responsibility and facing things with determination and integrity, then you have a chance to take your power back. This first step is redefining your financial priorities, for with Saturn here the goalposts have been raised. You'll have a chance to focus on income matters when the Moon visits your income sector from the 2nd January to the 4th January and again from the 29th January to the 31st January, giving you a nose for money as you move into a new professional year.
There is no escaping the fact that the focus will always be on money matters as you move into the New Year and it's not because you've blown out your credit card over Christmas and is all to do with the fact that the Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of any year in your financial sector. Having returned on the 22nd December and not due to leave until the 20th January, the Sun will always shine the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters over the Christmas and New Year period, something that is your norm, always has and always will be. When Pluto, planet of change and revolution returned to your financial sector in 2008, this made this even more focused and is the reason why you'll also move into the New Year ready for a fresh start and to change things up. With Mars having moved through your financial sector in the later months of 2014 and having just left last month, you'll also move into the New Year with your financial passions and fighting spirit engaged, ready to draw a new line in the sand. With Venus here until the 4th January and Mercury until the 5th January, you'll also move into the New Year with a smart head for money and firm financial desires and expectations. While things will ease back, especially once the Sun leaves on the 20th January, this year instead of easing right back you have a chance to spend time redefining your financial priorities, with the money gods sending along a special ally in the form of Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system, who will return on the 9th January and will spend the majority of the year here. The money gods will have a chance to give income matters a boost during the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 4th January to the 7th January and the Full Moon this will create on the 5th January.
For the first time since 2003 you're moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your income sector and for the first time since 1988 Saturn in your work sector as well. This is an alliance you flirted with during Mars' visit to your work sector in September/October 2014, setting down an alliance between income, work and career forces that will dominate the first half of 2015. This is such an extraordinary set of circumstances that you'll need to throw the game plan you usually work to out the window. While you've had Uranus in your career sector since 2011 and he's here until 2019, providing the professional framework for income opportunities to grow from, you need tangible momentum on the work front to plough a path for income opportunities to flourish. While you had a lot of activity in your work sector in the final weeks of the year, as you do each year, Saturn is the only planet powerful enough to take a bulldozer approach to clearing new pathways, as well as pushing you above and beyond what you think you're capable of. While lucky Jupiter visits your income sector once every 12 years, has been here since July and won't leave until August, Saturn's return to your work sector on Christmas Eve has been the game changer. While the focus will shift to money matters this month, as it does at this time every year, with Venus returning to your financial sector on the 4th January, Mercury on the 5th January, the Sun on the 20th January and Mars here from the get go, this is more the annual update you'll get at this time every year. With Mars in your financial sector from the get go you'll not only move into the New Year with powerful work forces and lucky income forces, but with financial passions and a fighting spirit engaged. Don't be alarmed by any financial tension this might create, for it's going to keep you on your toes.
This is one year where you're not going to get a gist of what the year holds by first impressions, for if that was the case there wouldn't be too much to write home about. With Neptune and Chiron in your financial sector for several years now and staying for several more years, with Chiron not leaving until 2019 and Neptune not leaving until 2026, they're on such a long term mission to redefine your financial aspirations and to learn from the past that this is now the norm. This does mean that the money gods will always be more focused on financial and money matters as a whole and with Mars returning to your financial sector on the 13th January to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and Venus on the 28th January to fuel your financial desires and expectations, as the month progresses this will only deepen. The only attention the money gods will pay to income matters will be during the Moon's monthly visit to your income sector from the 9th January to the 12th January. However, the timing is auspicious, for this will come right in the heart of some very active developments on the work front, giving you a nose for money as your new working year gets off the ground. Because there is so much focus on money matters it would be easy to dismiss this as simply a timely opportunity to get a sense of where the money is. However, what won't be revealed until midyear is that 2015 will host the start of your luckiest income year in over a decade, with the money gods providing clues during the Moon's first visit, laying the first of a trail of breadcrumbs they'll lay during the early months of 2015.
While things are fairly quiet on the money front this month, as is often the case at this time of year, there is enough influence on the financial and income fronts to keep things finely balanced, albeit subtly. After last year's clashes, financial tensions and intensity what you want is a low key start to the year and that's what you have. Moving into the New Year it's all about balance and equilibrium between income and financial forces, which if out of kilter will create some real problems, but if kept in balance will see things running smoothly. This is because in February 2014 the lunar nodes, those magnetic points where the Moon's orbit around the Earth intersects the Earth's orbit around the Sun are located in your two money houses and as they're there until November it's all about balance. The more auspicious of the two lunar nodes is the North Node, which located in your income sector is keeping the laws of attraction in effect and as you'll move into the New Year with Mars in your work sector and new work opportunities will continue to open up as the month progresses, this could provide some unexpected income opportunities. The trigger for income opportunities, or just a chance to get a better sense of where the money is, will be during the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year, from the 12th January to the 14th January. With Mars leaving your work sector on the 13th January this will see a nose for money kick in at what will be a critical point in the launch of your new working year. You'll have a chance to get your overall financial bearings when the Moon visits your financial sector from the 25th January to the 27th January.
The biggest thing about January 2015, as far as the money gods are concerned, isn't what is happening and more about what isn't. With one of your lowest key financial months in over 2 years coinciding with the start of a new financial year and the opportunity this creates for a fresh start. With Saturn, hard task master of the cosmos in your income sector since October 2012 you've had the constant pressure to raise the bar, believe in yourself and to stand your ground, but also to redefine your values, looking beyond the money to your real needs. It was Saturn's departure from your income sector on Christmas Eve that finally brought this chapter to an end, for now anyway. Saturn will return in June for a catch up but for now, with your objectives banked, there's a chance to start reaping the rewards. Saturn has done his part and the income potential this has created is in the hands of the professional gods and especially those of Mars, who will return to your work sector on the 12th January, getting your new professional year off to a busy start. You'll have a chance to tap into a nose for money and get your bearings when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 14th January to the 16th January. What you do have this month is a chance to start the year with your financial instincts sharp, your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, due to the fact that for the first time in 19 years you'll move into the New Year with the Moon in your financial sector.
While it's not unusual to have some planetary activity in your income sector in January, this will be a flow over from the focus the planets always put onto income matters in November/December each year and will be more a case of tying up loose ends. 2015 was never going to be an ordinary year for income potential, for even if you had moved into the year with no planets in your income sector, the very fact that for the first time since 2003 you're moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector, this was always going to take income opportunities and potential along for the ride. However, income opportunities won't be getting a free ride off the coattails of the professional gods and have their own momentum, due to the fact that for the first time since 1988 you're moving into the New Year with Saturn in your income sector. Saturn only returned on Christmas Eve so it's still early days and it's not until the Moon moves through from the 16th January to the 19th January that a nose for money will get a better read on the power this has created. With your annual income review having ended just a few days before Saturn returned to begin a chapter that won't run its course until December 2017, you'll have a clear starting point. Saturn won't be handing out free lunches, but if you're prepared to believe in yourself and work with the professional gods, you've got a very lucrative year on your hands. You'll have a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping during the Moon's two visits to your financial sector, the first from the 2nd January to the 4th January and the second from the 29th January to the 31st January.
That the focus is on income matters as you move into the New Year should be no surprise to you, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of January and therefore of each year in your income sector. However, what might take you by surprise is just how much progress has already been made and how much of a hurry the money gods seem to be in. It's almost as though the money gods are rushing things in order to get the ball rolling on the more practical side of things, leaving them free to focus on a very different agenda. With Mars having moved through your income sector late last year you've already gained the motivation and a chance to smash your way through some glass ceilings, but with Venus leaving your income sector on the 4th January, Mercury on the 5th January and the Sun on the 20th January, things wrap up very early this year or at least they do on one level. Pluto, planet of change and revolution has been in your income sector since 2008 and not due to leave until 2024, things will never go off the boil, but he won't be spending the rest of the year on his own. It's on the 9th January that Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system will return to your income sector for the first time in 4 years and spending 26 weeks here this year, this will make her mission to redefine your priorities and values an ongoing work in progress. If income matters are getting less attention this year then financial and money matters get even less. The Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 4th January to the 7th January and the Full Moon this creates on the 5th January, the first and only voice money matters will get this month, comes with a chance to bring both financial and income matters to head, turning and/or tipping point.
While January is always going to be a month when, if nothing else, you can expect the money gods to finally show up, it's not usually until later in the month and then on a more mundane level. The Sun will return to your income sector on the 20th January and as happens at this time every year it will throw the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. Usually this is the first attention income matters have had in nearly a year and as this is not a time of year when the money gods usually focus on financial matters, it's usually a low key update. This year it is anything but and you have reached a month that is so active financially that it could prove overwhelming, especially in the early days. For the first time since 2003 you're moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your financial sector, putting the focus on financial and money matters at a time of year when this shouldn't be happening, but you'll also move into the year with Mars in your income sector, where since early December he's been firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, urging you to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings. This is even before your annual update begins and with Jupiter and Mars in opposition in the early days of the month, there may even be some financial tension. This is going to give a false impression of the month and of the year itself, for with lucky Jupiter in your financial sector until August, Venus returning to your income sector on the 4th January, Mercury on the 5th January and the Sun on the 20th January, you've got a massive amount of support on both fronts. What is clear, is that from the get go the bar has been raised on both the financial and income fronts. A New Moon in your income sector on the 21st January will create an opportunity for new beginnings and opportunities, but just as the door also opens to second chances.
With Chiron in your income sector until 2019 and Neptune until 2026 things are never going to go off the boil, but for much of 2014 they were as close to that as it was possible to get, with both planets in retrograde motion until late November and even after turning direct seemingly in no hurry to get things moving. This is going to give a false impression as you move into the New Year, for past experience has told you that it's not until the Sun and the faster moving planets return in late February that things start to move. With a massive professional push having ended just before Christmas and no real hunger or drives on the income front, you may even feel like you've lost your edge and your mojo in the early days of the year. Make the most of that lull for it won't last, ending with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos' return to your income sector on the 12th January. This will be Mars' first visit in nearly 2 years and returning so soon after Saturn's departure from your career sector on Christmas Eve and with Jupiter having moved through your work sector from mid 2013 to mid 2014, this is a chance to start focusing on the money. Mars will not only fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit but will bring an urge to take a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings and not due to leave until the 20th February, there'll be plenty of time to work on this. It's when Venus returns on the 28th January that income opportunities will start to find you, for this is when the laws of attraction will come into effect. The Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year, from the 23rd January to the 25th January, will bring a nose for money just days before Venus is due to return and things are due to start coming together. In the meantime, the only chance you'll have to take care of any financial housekeeping will be during the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 9th January to the 12th January.
While not a lot seems to have changed as you move into the new month and the New Year, with the same money gods on duty, performing the same roles, but within that everything has changed, for one of them at least. The North Node, in your financial sector from February 2014 to November 2015, is keeping your overall financial momentum on track and there are no changes, with everything this month the same as last month. It's the Moon's first visit to your financial sector for the year, from the 12th January to the 14th January that will give you a chance to get your bearings and check that financial and money matters are on track. Where the big changes are is on the income front, where on one level nothing has changed but on another everything has. Uranus is still the only planet in your income sector, but having turned direct on the 22nd December his focus is on the future, just as you get one of the most empowered starts to a professional year you've ever had. For the first time since 2003 you'll move into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector and for the first time since 1988 Saturn in your career sector, together putting a massive stamp over the coming year. These are the conditions Uranus and income opportunities are enjoying in their early days in direct motion, with the tide having turned just as your professional star is on the rise. This is the start of a beautiful relationship between income, work and career forces that will dominate the majority of the year. It's the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year, from the 25th January to the 27th January that will bring a nose for money and a chance to test the waters.
