With no planetary activity in either of your money houses since Saturn left your financial sector last month and none until Venus returns to your income sector in March, the Moon's monthly visits have become a lot more important and that's especially so this week. You moved into the year with the Moon in your income sector, not only giving you a nose for money from the get go and as you moved into your new professional year, but returning just a week after Saturn left your financial sector this sent a clear message from the money gods that it was time to shift focus. The Moon returns to your income sector on Tuesday, coming full circle and taking you back to the intentions and resolutions you moved into the New Year with. The middle days of the week are an important chance to regroup.
With so much focus on money matters this year, but having not just the whole year to focus on it but the next 3 years, this takes away any urgency and makes it all about the journey. In the early days in particular, as the Moon moves through an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, you'll not only have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground when it comes to money matters, but a chance to put a positive and empowering spin on things. It really is about the way you choose to look at things. With the money gods focused on money matters this makes the Moon's return to your income sector on Thursday a valuable chance to get a read on income matters, giving you a nose for money in the days after Venus' departure from your career sector as you start to regroup professionally.
The Sun's departure from your financial sector last week not only brought your annual financial review to an end, but some active months. Since Mars returned to your financial sector on the 26th October you've had a chance to cement your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit, get your head in the game and perform your annual reality checks, bringing you to a point where everything is out in the open, you have a game plan and know what's required of you. However, even if Ceres and Pluto weren't spending their first full week on their own in your financial sector, shifting the focus to the long term, it would still be all about the journey. The Moon's return to your income sector over the weekend will bring a nose for money during Venus' first weekend in your career sector.
The money gods ease up a little this week, after last week's standoff between Venus and Jupiter brought financial tensions to a head. With another round during a Full Moon in your income sector and an opposition between the Sun and Jupiter just days later due to bring things to a head again, but not until early next month there's a chance this week to take a break, but to process any wakeup calls on both the income and financial front and turn any wakeup calls or tension into motivation. With Venus due to leave your financial sector on Wednesday, but the Sun just in his first full week and Mercury just in his first full week in retrograde motion here, this is a chance to focus on cementing the financial desires and expectations that will provide the framework for this coming year.
In the days leading up to Venus' return to your financial sector and not only the financial desires and expectations she'll trigger but the laws of attraction, it's all about cementing the financial passions, dreams and fighting spirit last week's alignment between Mars and Neptune brought together. The Moon only left your financial sector on Sunday so you're able to move into the new week with your financial instincts sharp, your fighting spirit engaged and a much better sense of what you're fighting for and that's before Venus even gets here. It's Venus' return that will see her team up with Mars for the first time here in 2 years, creating the kind of determination, motivation and confidence that eluded you last year. As your financial confidence grows so too will your warrior spirit.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your financial sector is always going to be an advantage, ensuring that your financial instincts are sharp from the get go. However, as this is both the Moon's first visit for the year and last before Venus and Mars return next month, it's not just that your financial instincts are sharp that is important, but the messages and Eureka moments you've got access to. Last year Venus didn't return to your financial sector until May and Mars didn't return at all, so the fact that they're there, during your first chance to check your financial radar for the year, is likely to come as a shock, albeit a good one. This will bring a boost in confidence and determination, especially if you're looking at big financial moves this year.
With no planetary activity in either of your money houses since Saturn left your income sector on Christmas Eve, but not before leaving behind vast reserves of untapped potential that you're now just starting to tap into, the Moon's monthly visits have become a lot more important. That's especially so for the Moon's return to your financial sector on Tuesday, for while you have no planetary activity in your income sector, with so much untapped potential and so much developing on the work front, there is a lot more opportunities there. You moved into the New Year with the Moon in your financial sector and as the Moon returns, as well as your financial instincts kicking in, so will reminders of the financial intentions, resolutions and promises you moved into the year with.
The money gods are standing back, especially in the early days of the week in order to let you keep your work hat on instead. As far as the money gods assigned to income matters are concerned this is in their best interest, for with much of your income fortunes tied up in a powerful partnership between income, work and career forces, the Moon's position in your work sector in the early days of the week will provide an intuitive insight into all fronts. As far as the money gods assigned to financial and money matters as a whole are concerned they really don't have a choice, for unlike your income sector there is no ongoing activity in your financial sector, though the Moon's return on Thursday will bring a chance to get your financial bearings and/or take care of any financial housekeeping.
While the Sun's departure from your income sector last week brought your annual review to an end, along with some active months that began with Mars' return in October, this is far from the end of the story. On Monday it will be 3 months to the day since Mars returned to get the ball rolling and with a huge amount of water having passed under the bridge during that time, it's only now that you're able to stop, assess and process things. While Ceres and Pluto, now long term custodians of income matters, are spending their first full week on their own in your income sector the Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday will bring a reminder of the intentions you moved into the year with, as well as a chance to start lining up with new doors opening on the work front 6 weeks later.
The money gods have eased back this week, for after last week's opposition between Venus, moving through your income sector and Jupiter, in retrograde motion in your financial sector, they're letting things settle. Income and financial matters will go head to head again, but not until early next month, with a chance to process any wakeup calls and turn this into the motivation it was designed to be. It's during Venus' final days in your income sector, before leaving on Wednesday that your expectations will not only be high, but with the laws of attraction in effect you're more likely to attract opportunities. Yet with the Sun in his first full week in your income sector, Mercury his first full week in retrograde motion and a second New Moon next month, there is little if any urgency.
While Venus will return to your income sector this week to kick off what will always be some of the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year, she won't return until Wednesday, making the early days of the week all about sitting with the passions and fighting spirit Mars is evoking. It's been an active 7 days for Neptune, who early last week aligned with Neptune to put your passions, dreams and fighting spirit on the same page, with the Moon's return over the weekend giving you a nose for money from the get go. Last year Venus didn't return to your income sector until May and Mars didn't return at all, so to have them both here by midweek is astonishing, especially this early in the year. All you've invested professionally over the last few years has prepared you for this moment.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your income sector will always be an advantage, especially as this is such an important visit. That would have been the case regardless, for as the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year this is a chance to get your bearings, with a nose for money getting a read on the year itself and the professional conditions you have to work with. It's not just the fact that for the first time in 12 years you've moved into the New Year with Jupiter in your career sector or for the first time with Saturn in your career sector that brings a boost in confidence, but just how close new income opportunities are likely to seem. Last year Venus didn't return to your income sector until May and Mars didn't return at all, yet they're both just weeks away.
