While the tide began to turn on the financial front with Saturn's direct turn in your financial sector last Monday, the real game changer was Mars' return over the weekend, less than 48 hours before you move into the new week. From the get go you're likely to notice the shift, with your financial passions and fighting spirit engaged and a new sense of determination setting in. Saturn's direct turn shifted your focus from the rear view mirror to the road ahead but it would have taken weeks, if not months, to gain the kind of momentum that Mars is able to create in days, with something shifting within that urges you to start taking your power back. By the time the Moon returns to your financial sector over the weekend you'll be ready to head to the battlefield, bayonet drawn.
While, for the first time since early May, you're moving into a week with no planetary activity in either of your money houses, with even the Moon staying clear, the truth is that you need this space, with an abundance of experience and insight to process. While Venus left your income sector the weekend before last, wrapping up all the planetary activity for the year, it wasn't until the Moon moved through last week that a nose for money gave you a chance to process all that transpired over recent months and package this up to a new sense of resolve. This leaves you with a nose and a smart head for money, your intentions and expectations banked and a clear sense of what you've worked with and while the money gods have moved on, you're ready to take over from where they left off.
Because the Moon only left your income sector on Sunday you're not only moving into the new week with a nose for money and a new sense of urgency, but with the means to turn any financial tension that comes to a head in the early days of the week into motivation. This was the Moon's last visit to your income sector before Mercury leaves on Friday and Venus 9 days later, bringing all the planetary activity to an end. However, the Moon left less than 24 hours before Venus moves into opposition with Pluto, in retrograde motion in your financial sector on Monday, once more bringing any financial tension or issues to a head. This is the last hurdle you'll have to face, but with a nose and a smart head for money Venus will use this as a stepping stone, evoking a new sense of resolve.
With the Moon still in your income sector and not leaving until Tuesday, the New Moon this created on Sunday is still in effect in the early days of the week, allowing you to draw a new line in the sand from the get go. The Moon's first visit to your income sector since Jupiter returned on the 16th July was always going to be important, with a nose for money revealing that your luck and the tide has turned. Yet while this is a chance to make a commitment to this, your most powerful and potentially lucrative income year in over a decade, this is less about the 'when, where and how' and more about the 'what'. With Mercury and his smart head for money not returning until Friday and Venus not returning to trigger the laws of attraction until next month, this is an unfolding situation.
The Moon's return to your income sector midweek is set to have multiple implications, all of which you need to pay attention to. As the Moon's last visit to your income sector before new doors open in just a few weeks time, the nose for money this brings will be invaluable, with a chance to start lining up at the right doors before they open. With some work tension in the early days of the week, knowing where the money is will make it easier to work smarter, while looking ahead to new choices and options. However, don't be alarmed if this pushes some buttons and creates some financial tension, for the Moon will move into opposition with both Neptune and Chiron, in retrograde motion in your financial sector, providing some valuable insights and wakeup calls.
Mars' departure from your income sector over the weekend is one of those events that leave you better off by taking something away, not only on the income front but financially in general. During the nearly 8 months that Mars spent in your income sector he was a tireless crusader for not only breaking through glass ceilings on the income front, but keeping the pressure on financial forces to also raise the bar. Yet with Mars gone and Uranus spending his first full week in retrograde motion in your financial sector the pressure, urgency and financial tension is no longer there, while leaving you with a huge amount of progress made financially and untapped income potential that will take months to fully explore, benefiting you for years to come. This is a week for tying up loose ends.
While the tide turned on the income front last week, when Saturn turned direct in your income sector, the real game changer was Mars' return over the weekend and the financial passions and fighting spirit that you're moving into the new week with. With support from both work and career forces there is a new sense of energy, exuberance and determination in the air, along with a new sense of urgency. After being in retrograde motion for nearly 5 months Saturn would have been happy to see things slowly turnaround and get up to speed, but Mars wants to see things happen now. At this point it's less about the specifics and more about the determination to smash your way through any glass ceilings, with support to start narrowing things down next week, ready to come out of your corner fighting.
For the first time since early May you're moving into a week where the money gods are nowhere to be seen. While Venus left your financial sector the weekend before last, the Moon's visit last week gave you a chance to tap into your financial instincts and to begin the job of tying up loose ends in earnest. As much as you might want to see the money start to flow as new doors open on the professional front, it won't be until Mars' return in early September that new doors will open on the income front, a lot earlier in the year than is normally the case. In the meantime, this is both a chance to gain as much professional momentum as possible, with the Moon's return to your income sector next week providing some clues to where the money is and taking care of any financial housekeeping.
The Moon's visit to your financial sector over the weekend was a practice run for tensions that are due to come to a head on Monday, giving you an inside edge and all the resources needed to turn this into a new sense of determination and motivation. It was in the closing days of last week that the Moon's monthly visit to your financial sector and alignment with both Mercury and Venus, sharpened your financial instincts and aligned them with Mercury's smart head for money and Venus' financial desires and expectations. It also put the Moon in opposition with Pluto in your income sector, something that will be replicated when Venus moves into opposition on Monday. As you start tying up loose ends on the income front, this comes less than 3 weeks before new doors open on the career front.
Because the Moon only returned to your financial sector a few hours before Sunday's New Moon, this is still in effect as you move into the new week and will be until Tuesday. This is the Moon's first visit to your financial sector since the Sun and Jupiter returned over recent weeks and first encounter with any planet here this year, providing something tangible for your financial instincts to link into. While this is the Moon's only visit during the Sun's annual, month long financial review, this is the first encounter with lucky Jupiter here in over a decade, but the first of many that will occur monthly over the coming year. It's not until Mercury returns on Friday that you'll begin to work on a game plan, with the early days of the week more about realising the tide has turned.
With Chiron and Neptune the only planets in your income sector in retrograde motion, your biggest danger is falling asleep at the wheel or sticking things into autopilot. In retrograde motion in your income sector Neptune and Chiron provide the perfect support for a new sense of urgency on the work front and a major turnaround in play on the career front, something that untapped income potential is ready to exploit. This is why the Moon's return to your financial sector midweek, the pressure this puts on income forces and the financial tension this may create is a blessing in disguise, providing the wakeup calls needed to ensure you're not asleep at the wheel. This is also a head's up for any financial matters that might need addressing in the not too distant future.
There is a sense of relief and a major de escalation of financial intensity and pressure this week, while taking noting away from the power you have to turn any situation around. It was Mars' departure from your financial sector over the weekend that wrapped up a nearly 8 month visit, his longest in over 3 decades, taking away the pressure to remain on top of your game, while also any direct pressure off income forces. This is good news for Uranus, who in his first full week in retrograde motion in your income sector is able to get on with the job of accessing untapped potential, as new doors open on the work front. Mars has left you with the financial passions, fighting spirit and motivation to continue what he started. It's time to regroup and redefine your financial priorities.
