Mercury's departure from your financial sector last week has left you with a smart head for money and the ability and resources to keep your head in the game, but it has taken away the urgency. After months of very intense and active focus on money matters, it's time to ease back and focus more on staying on track. If you haven't already got a financial game plan to work towards, then at least you should have some clear objectives and it's now all about staying on track. If there is any financial housekeeping still to take care of then you're able to do this in your own way and time, with money matters no longer the driving force in your life. This has provided a more level playing field, with income matters able to gain some leverage as you lose a need to prove yourself on the work front.
While you will always have the Sun in your financial sector at this time of year, this is something that often drags on over Christmas, the holiday period and often into the early weeks of the New Year. However, as Mercury spends his first full week in your financial sector and a smart head for money kicks in, with this comes a message from the money gods that they want this wrapped up before Christmas this year. With Venus already been and gone you've got some clear financial desires and expectations to work from and with the Sun's transparency and Mercury's smart head for money, you're able to take care of any financial housekeeping, getting this out of the way before next week's Full Moon in your income sector. This comes just as you're catching your second wind on the work front.
With the Sun not due to return to your financial sector until later next week it's too early to start over thinking things, with any financial housekeeping able to wait until over the holiday period or even until the New Year. For now it's not only more about taking the time to define your financial desires and expectations, but to regroup when it comes to your income and professional options. This week is dominated by a powerful alliance between lucky Jupiter in your income sector and Saturn in your work sector, which came together midyear, but comes together again this week. With the Moon in your career sector in the early days of the week your professional instincts will be sharp and you will get a better sense of the income and work opportunities and resources you have to work with.
Even if the Moon's visit to your financial sector over the weekend wasn't his last for the year, having left just hours before the new week began, this would still have made it important to move into the new week with your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground, holding onto both the financial instincts and the emotional responses this triggered. But as the Moon's last visit for the year and especially with new doors opening in the New Year, it's even more important to hold onto the message behind any strong emotional and intuitive responses, while letting any hype this created go. When the Moon visits you'll have a huge mass of emotional and intuitive responses and in the middle will be a small kernel of truth or insight and that's what you need to hold onto and cherish.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your financial sector could have been a recipe for disaster had this happened just a week earlier, but in this instance this will reveal just how dramatically things have changed over the weekend. The Moon returned to your financial sector on Sunday, just hours after Mars left your income sector, avoiding the opposition and the financial tension this has created over recent months. Yet returning so soon after Mars left and with his income drives and fighting spirit still strong, this allows your financial instincts to capture them, incorporating them into your overall financial game plan and approach. By the time the Moon leaves your financial sector on Wednesday it will be clear that the tide has turned, leaving you with a new sense of resolve.
Just when you thought that you had your head around all money matters and that this late in the year the money gods had played all their cards, this is clearly not the case as you'll discover this week. To start with all you'll probably notice is a new attitude and as Monday will be Mars' first full day in your income sector, it may take a few days for this to sink in or to grasp the game changing consequences this has created. This is a point in the year when you should have explored and exploited your full income potential, but as Mars returns to kick off an epic 8 month visit new and higher glass ceilings come into contention. With a Full Moon in your career sector next week and new doors opening on the work front in the New Year you're still very much in the game.
Mercury's departure from your income sector last week has left you with a smart head for money, but also the resources and the momentum to ensure that you won't lose your stride. What this has done however is bring a very active few months to a close, where you needed to have your head in the game and become a more active participant in getting things up to speed and on track. This allows you to step back and let things play out, but it has also put income, work and career forces back on a more level playing field, shifting your focus to the big picture but also to the importance of having all three balanced. As income forces pull back work and career forces will come back into contention, until a balance between all three is regained. You've still got a smart head for money to call on.
As Mercury spends his first full week in your income sector there is a new sense of urgency and a sense that it's time to step it up. After spending just over 2 months in your sign Mercury will only spend 19 days in your income sector and with both he and the Sun gone by Christmas, the message is clear that there is no time to muck around. It's the Sun's transparency and Mercury's smart head for money that allow you to see what you've got to work with and make some smart choices, decisions and plans. Yet the real urgency involves having your head in the game and giving income matters your full attention, knowing that with a turnaround on the work front next week and stunning professional opportunities next year, all you really need is to get back in the game and to get things moving.
While the Sun won't return to your income sector until later next week and Mercury won't return until Christmas Eve, already there is a growing sense of confidence on not only the income front but on the financial front as a whole. Thanks to Mars' position in your career sector over the last 7 weeks your professional game has got the kind of momentum that will help drive the income opportunities home and while the warrior planet of the cosmos left on Sunday, his professional passions and fighting spirit will continue to inspire you for months to come. In the meantime, while you wait for income matters to fall into place trust a growing sense of financial confidence and a sense that the money gods have your back. You've got the professional momentum and now it's more about the money.
With the Moon having only just left your income sector on Sunday, just hours after Mars returned to your career sector, you're not only able to start the new week with a nose for money, but a game changing professional chapter. For Monday is Mars' first full day in your career sector and not due to leave until July 2014, this is the start of a remarkable professional turnaround. However, when the Moon made his last visit to your income sector for the year over the weekend, this not only left you with a nose for money but clues to new doors due to open on the income front in the New Year and what is destined to be a very lucrative first 3 months of 2014. A nose for money will help point your professional passions and fighting spirit in the right direction from the get go.
Having the Moon in your income sector as you move into the new week will always be an advantage, giving you a nose for money from the get go and here until midweek, there is a chance to get a real sense of where the money is. This is the Moon's last visit to your income sector for the year and his first since the tide turned, with a better sense of how to get an edge on any remaining opportunities this year, but more importantly to start lining up for new income opportunities due to open up from early February. Yet coming right on the heels of Mars' departure from your financial sector over the weekend, this is both a chance to channel your financial passions and fighting spirit onto income matters and for neglected income matters to start fighting back, trusting a nose for money.
All of a sudden things are heating up on the money front, with the money gods extremely active on both the income and financial fronts this week, with the possibility that they will butt heads midweek, creating some temporary financial tension. Monday is Mars' first full day in your financial sector and kicking off his longest visit in 3 decades, a visit that won't run its course until July 2014 he's here to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit. Yet at the same time the Moon's return to your income sector midweek comes just as Uranus moves into his final week in retrograde motion, and moving into opposition with Mars sparks are likely to fly. Yet ahead of next week's turnaround on the income front, this is simply raising the bar, evoking your fighting spirit.
