After so much focus on financial and money matters over recent months and for much of 2015 there is finally a chance to focus on income matters this month and the results could be surprising. At the very least you knew you only had to wait for the Sun's return to your income sector on the 20th April to get the money flowing, but considering there has been no planetary activity here since May 2015 it has been a long wait and especially with so much developing professionally since then. However, you won't have to wait until the Sun's return, with Mercury's return to your income sector on the 6th April kicking things off early and keeping them in play right through to June. Mercury will normally move through your income sector in just 15 days, giving you a short window of time to get your head in the game and work with his smart head for money. However, it won't take long to realise this smart and intellectually savvy planet isn't going anywhere and is in fact slowing down. By the time the Sun returns on the 20th April to throw the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options you'll have already had access to Mercury's smart head for money for two weeks, but still there will be no sign of him moving on. Instead, on the 29th April Mercury will turn retrograde, not only opening the door to second chances but keeping him here until June, time enough to ensure every opportunity is exploited. With Venus returning to your income sector on the 30th April this continues and will only get better next month, especially with the support of some powerful forces on the work and career fronts. By the end of the month the doors will be open to second chances across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, a Full Moon in your financial sector on the 22nd April has the power to bring financial and income matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point.
You've reached an incredibly powerful month for financial matters and especially when it comes to taking your power back, but also a game changing month where the tides are on the turn. Since returning to your financial sector in December 2014 until leaving in December 2017 Saturn will turn retrograde at this time of year, turning retrograde last March, this March and again next March, then not again here for another three decades. Last year Saturn's retrograde phase saw him retrograde back out, but this year he'll stay on, with a major financial boot camp reaching a point where things move into review phase, where you're able to learn from and address the past. This year you've got the kind of support none of Saturn's other retrograde phases had, in that you not only have Mars in your financial sector as well, firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, but he too will turn retrograde here on the 18th April, putting all the money gods in play here in retrograde motion and focused on the past. Where Saturn's first full month in retrograde motion is more focused on addressing old financial issues and learning from the past, Mars will be looking to exploit the past in every way possible, making the most of the fact that the doors are open to second chances. The Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 25th April to the 27th April will not only sharpen your financial instincts and provide some valuable clues, hunches and insights, but with both planets in retrograde motion by then all messages will come with 20/20 hindsight.
Things have not only become more settled, confident and supported on the financial front, there's a chance this month to pull back and move into review phase. This is something that you will have during each of the 16 years that Pluto will spend in your financial sector, from 2018 to 2024 and spending from April to September of each year in retrograde motion the review phase has become part of the annual pattern. However, it's been a long time since Pluto and the financial forces in play have had the support they have this time around, with lucky Jupiter at an especially auspicious angle. It was Jupiter and Pluto's alliance last month that has helped boost your confidence, giving you the courage to make the changes that put you back into the driver's seat. The Moon will make two visits to your financial sector this month, the first while Pluto is still in direct motion and your financial focus is still on the road ahead and the second, after he's turned direct and where the focus will by then be on the rear view mirror. You'll move into the month with the Moon in your financial sector and conjunct Pluto on the 1st April, this allows you to start the month with your financial instincts engaged and an intuitive read on the financial forces in play. After leaving your financial sector on the 2nd April the Moon will come full circle from the 27th April to the 29th April, this time after Pluto's retrograde turn on the 18th April and with access to 20/20 hindsight. Considering all the attention money matters get this month the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 12th April to the 15th April is a very narrow window of opportunity for income matters, making it important to trust what a nose for money is telling you.
Things settle down on the financial front this month, after a nearly five month period of continuous planetary activity in your financial sector ended when Venus left last month. Between October 2015 and March 2016 you've not only had a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping, get everything out in the open, your head in the game and update your financial desires and expectations, but completely overhaul your definition of financial success. You've had a chance to look beyond the money, which is simply a means to an end, leaving you with a financial game plan that is geared to your actual needs and priorities rather than the stabs in the dark you've had in the past. This leaves you with clear objectives, clear financial goals and a clear sense of what's required in order to walk the talk. While the money gods have stepped right back and you no longer have any planetary activity in either of your two money houses, there is plenty of financial momentum and some special support on the income front, leading to a new sense of financial confidence. The Moon will make two visits to your financial sector, the first from the 2nd April to the 4th April and again from the 29th April to the 2nd May. This is a chance to get your bearings and check that you're on track. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your income sector from the 15th April to the 17th April not only brings a nose for money into play at a crucial point in your professional year for both work and career matters, but a sense of just how close to the surface the stream runs.
While you might be more than happy to leave the financial tensions and/or challenges of recent months behind and there is no way you would want to repeat them, chances are you'll appreciate in hindsight the growth and determination this has created on both the income and financial fronts. While the Sun left your financial sector on the 20th March and Mercury two days later, financial tensions lingered for another week until you finally cleared the final roadblock in the final days of March. As well as leaving you with an authentic new starting point, all financial issues out in the open and a smart head for money, it was only then that you began channelling all that tension into motivation. This has been one of your toughest annual financial reviews in a decade and all because with lucky Jupiter on the other side of the sky in your income sector the bar has been raised. On the other side, with the pressure gone but the money gods leaving some powerful forces in play on both the financial and income fronts, this is when the rebuilding can begin. Venus will stay in your financial sector until the 6th April, fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations, but it's literally just hours after she leaves that income matters get a boost. It is Mercury's return to your career sector on the 6th April that not only opens the door to new work opportunities, but provides both income and career forces the support needed to turn the financial tensions of recent months into motivation. By the end of the month the doors will be open to second chances across the income, work and career fronts.
The solar spotlight will always be on financial and money matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of April in your financial sector. However, unlike previous years there is very little financial tension and as the month progresses you'll find your financial confidence rise and that money matters start to flow more smoothly. The price you have to pay for a lack of financial tension this year is that income forces aren't a factor, though a lunar eclipse in your income sector just before Easter has provided income opportunities with enough thrust. In all but one of the last seven years these annual financial updates have been mired by conflict, competition and tension between competing income and financial forces, with a chance this year to stay on focus and use this as a chance to take your financial power back. Until Mercury leaves on the 6th April you have his smart head for money to work with and a chance to keep your head in the game, while until he leaves on the 20th April the Sun will continue to shine the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options. Venus' visit from the 6th April to the 30th April will bring a chance to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations, with a New Moon on the 8th April offering an opportunity for new beginnings and a fresh start. You don't need to worry about income forces, for while last month's lunar eclipse acted as a trigger, there are plenty of opportunities ahead.
With the Sun returning to your financial sector on the 20th April the solar spotlight will always fall on your financial situation and money matters this month, though there'll be a chance to get the ball rolling when Mercury and his smart head for money return on the 6th April. It was just last month that Mars left your income sector and while he'll return in late May this has put income matters on hold, allowing the money gods to give your financial situation and money matters some much needed attention. With no planetary activity here since last May it's no wonder Mercury is extending his normally short 15 day visit out to over two months, not leaving until June. Keeping Mercury here so long is a retrograde turn on the 29th April and while much of this will play out in May, with his smart head for money coming with 20/20 hindsight, you'll benefit this month by the fact that he's slowing down, discouraging you from rushing things. Venus' return on the 30th April means that you'll end the month with your heart engaged, on a mission to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations just as you have a smart head for money, clarity and a mix of foresight and hindsight to work with. Income matters will get their turn when the Moon moves through your income sector from the 22nd April to the 25th April, creating a Full Moon on the 22nd April that has the power to bring both income and financial matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point. With Mars returning to your income sector next month the money gods will be using this Full Moon to line things up for what lies ahead.
In normal times there wouldn't be any focus on income or money matters at this time of year and apart from the Moon's monthly visits to your two money houses you'd be on your own. While that's still the case when it comes to financial and money matters as a whole, with the money gods waiting until the Sun's return to your financial sector next month to provide any real attention, it is a very different story on the income front and the timing couldn't be better. Saturn, in your income sector from December 2014 to December 2017, is giving you the power to move mountains if you have to and while this creates a very real chance to breakthrough glass ceilings during that time, he demands that you do the hard work yourself. Having turned retrograde over Easter Saturn's first full month in retrograde motion is giving you a chance to retrace your steps, during what is the most important month of 2016 for work matters. With the Sun in your work sector until the 20th April, Venus here attracting opportunities from the 6th April to the 30th April and a New Moon on the 8th April opening the door to new opportunities on the work front, there couldn't be a better time for Saturn to turn retrograde in your income sector. However, while Saturn's focus is more on learning from the past rather than plundering its riches, that is exactly what Mars will focus on when he too turns retrograde in your income sector on the 18th April. Mars knows he'll not only retrograde back out of your income sector next month but will return for a double dip visit in August, just as things are taking off on the career front. Forces in play on the work and income fronts will work closely all month, with new opportunities developing on the work front having a direct impact on second chances on the income front and vice versa. This will be especially so around the 11th April, the 12th April and the days either side.
Apart from the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector from the 12th April to the 15th April, the money gods are still more focused on income matters and this month this plays into a much bigger picture, one that by the end of the month see the doors open to the past and second chances on the income, work and career fronts. To begin with that doesn't seem possible, for while the doors have been open to the past and second chances on the career front since April, the money gods are still focused on the future and as you move into the new month there is no focus on work matters at all and hasn't been since May 2015. Yet over the course of the month that will change, beginning with Mercury's return to your work sector on the 6th April, where over the course of the month he'll work with the Sun and eventually Venus when they return, opening new doors and throwing the solar spotlight on your work situation, matters and options. Like career forces before them, as soon as things start to move on the work front they'll team up with Pluto in your income sector. This means April was always going to be an important month for work, career and income matters, but a sense of solidarity comes together in the second half of the month. With lucky Jupiter already in retrograde motion in your career sector, the doors to the past and second chances open on the income front as well when Pluto turns retrograde in your income sector on the 18th April and then just 11 days later, Mercury's retrograde turn in your work sector opens the doors to the past there and this is why, by the end of the month, the doors will be open to the past and second chances across the income, work and career fronts.
The money gods dial up just the kind of month you need, which is a low key month for both income and financial matters, with the money gods standing back for the majority of the month. With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses it's the Moon's monthly visits that become more important and especially on the income front. When the Moon moves through your income sector from the 2nd April to the 4th April it will be the first visit since Venus not only left last month, but since a five month period of continuous planetary activity ran its course. With a lunar eclipse in your career sector just before Easter and new doors opening on the work front next month, the nose for money that comes into play in the early days of the month is priceless, both tapping into the resources the money gods have left you with, but also aligning a sense of where the money is with your professional game. It's midmonth that the Moon will return to your financial sector, with a chance to sharpen your financial instincts and take care of any financial housekeeping from the 15th April to the 17th April. The Moon will come full circle and return to your income sector on the 29th April, seeing out the rest of the month here. Where the Moon's visit earlier in the month was the first since planetary activity wrapped up and since a lunar eclipse in your career sector, this visit will be the last before new doors open on the work front next month, with a nose for money still kicking in, but this time looking more to the future than the past.
While financial tensions ease back this month, with the last opposition between income and financial forces having played out over Easter and the financial tensions and pressures of the last two months aren't something you would want to repeat, this is when you get to reap the benefits. It was the final standoff, an opposition between Venus in your income sector and lucky Jupiter in your financial sector over Easter that brought this to a close and there were no better planets than the planets of money and luck to ensure your interests on both fronts were being protected. While financial tension can look and feel bad at the time, it came from the fact that income and financial forces were in competition, each trying to outdo the other and grab your full attention. Hopefully this has resulted in a draw and while the money gods will keep a heavy presence of planetary activity in both your income and financial sectors, they won't move into opposition again. Until leaving your income sector on the 6th April, Venus will be working to fuel your income desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement, as well as attracting opportunities and turning the financial tension of recent months into motivation. The Moon's visit to your income sector from the 4th April to the 6th April will ensure you have a nose for money in Venus' final days and a visit to your financial sector from the 17th April to the 20th April will sharpen your financial instincts, bring some lucky hunches and 20/20 hindsight, but both visits may see financial tensions temporarily rise. This is simply the money gods keeping you on your toes, ensuring you don't backslide and you continue to work with the breakthroughs now possible on both the financial and income fronts.
While the solar spotlight will always fall on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year, there is a new level of confidence, a lack of roadblocks and an abundance of support that creates the kind of potential this year you don't usually have access to. With the Sun always spending the first two weeks of April in your income sector the spotlight will always be on income matters at this time of year, but with Mars and Saturn together in your career sector for the first time in 28 years, you don't usually have the professional clout that goes with it. Also, this is only the second time in nine years that there hasn't been cosmic activity over in your financial sector, creating financial tension and pressure. All the lights are green and with Mercury and his smart head for money in play until the 6th April, you've got the right tools, support and clear road in front of you that can foster some real opportunities. Things get even better when Venus returns to your income sector on the 6th April, with her time here until the 30th April potentially some of the most lucrative weeks of the year, especially for attracting opportunities. It's during this 24 day period that a New Moon here on the 8th April will create an opportunity for new beginnings, while Mars' return to your career sector on the 18th April will exploit the doors already open to second chances on the professional front. With the Sun leaving your income sector on the 20th April and then your income sector going back to the status quo once Venus leaves on the 30th April, the money gods will be doing their best to make April as lucrative as possible. There'll be a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping during the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector from the 20th April to the 22nd April. Coming full circle from last month's lunar eclipse this may have some unexpected triggers on both the income and financial fronts.
