The Moon's return to your income sector on Tuesday and position here in the early days of the week comes with remarkable timing on multiple levels. Returning during Mercury's final days in retrograde motion in your work sector and with the Sun leaving on Friday, this will give you a nose for money at a critical point of the year for work matters. With big developments and turnarounds possible on the career front next week, this will also give you a nose for money during the last few days where the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Yet as well as giving you a nose for money at a critical point of your professional year, this also gives you a chance to focus on income matters before Venus' return to your financial sector over the weekend brings it back onto money matters as a whole.
Mars' last full week in your financial sector is all about fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit but also starting to put this to use. Knowing that when he leaves early next week that he won't be back until 2018 and that when he does Saturn will be gone, Mars is making the most of this final week where your financial passions and fighting spirit are not only fuelled, but they come with the determination and the power to move mountains if you have to. If motivation is key to making Mars' final week count and especially when it comes to taking your power back, then the Moon's return to your income sector mid week should provide it. While this will give you a nose for money in the lead up to the Sun's return to your work sector on Friday and during Venus' final days, giving you an even clearer sense of where the money is, this will also create some much needed competition.
As Pluto spends his last full week in retrograde motion in your financial sector this already slow planet is at such a crawl that financial and money matters are likely to appear stalled or stuck, with a need to avoid fighting that. With Pluto turning direct early next week and Mars returning on the same day to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, when a turnaround comes it is likely to be quick and extreme, making this final week back at the drawing board important. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your income sector on Friday and position here over the weekend might create some competition and distraction in the final days of a major financial review, but it will also give you a nose for money as new doors open on the work front. Venus' return to your work sector was always going to have an eye on where the money is from the get go, with the Moon making this even easier.
When the Moon returned to your financial sector last week, coming full circle from last month's Full Moon this was a chance to put a lot of things in perspective, not only leaving you with your financial instincts sharp but a better understanding of all the financial undercurrents. With income matters now in the hands of the money gods, both in terms of retaining a nose for money and access to ongoing and untapped potential, financial and money matters as a whole are now in your hands. Until early November the focus is more about keeping the income momentum going, as developments continue to unfold across the work and career fronts, making money matters both your responsibility and simple. Small things done the right and smart way are key to keeping control of your own financial destiny.
If moving into the new week feels like a corner has been turned you're right, with the weekend's lunar eclipse having provided one last major standoff between income and financial forces. With both sides more evenly balanced you're able to keep financial and income matters in their own separate lanes, with a new sense of confidence on both fronts. At the start of the week there is still a need to look back through the rear view mirror, with both planets in your financial sector in retrograde motion, but also Mercury in his final days in retrograde motion in your income sector. While Mercury's direct turn on Thursday will release the handbrake and turn the lights green during the Sun's last full day in your income sector, until then his smart head for money comes with 20/20 hindsight, at a time when the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the work and career fronts.
While moving into the week with the Moon in your financial sector will ensure your financial instincts are sharp from the get go, this could be a mixed blessing, with financial tensions running high as well. Yet in a week where things are coming together on the income front a bit of competition between income and financial forces and any financial tension this fuels can very easily be turned into motivation. While the cause of any financial tension is a standoff between planets in your income and financial sectors, the Moon's emotional responses are likely to exacerbate any emotional responses, but also your response. With lucky Jupiter in your income sector, the Sun returning on Friday and Venus leaving over the weekend, this is the kind of financial tension that the money gods are able to use as fuel, as the job of taking down any glass ceilings gets serious.
In the lead up to Venus' return to your income sector over the weekend and the fact that she'll not only kick off the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year but most of the hard work has already been done, there is already a sense of anticipation in the air. It was the weekend's lunar eclipse in your work sector and the Moon's return to your career sector on Friday that has a lot of support for new income opportunities both before they kick in and as new doors are opening, with every reason for both professional and financial confidence. Yet before then the Moon manages to slip in one last visit to your financial sector in the early days of the week, providing one last chance to focus exclusively on money matters as a whole. This creates a week of two halves, with the first part all about financial and money matters and then shifting to income matters over the weekend.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, especially when this just happens to be Mars' last full week in your income sector and his mission to smash through any remaining glass ceilings becomes more urgent. While, with Saturn staying on in your income sector and a parade of planets moving through over the coming months will keep the income matters ticking over, this is the last weekend where you have the warrior planet of the cosmos on board to help break through any remaining glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind. With an intuitive read on work matters and an intuitive edge from the get go this is a chance to look at the bigger picture. With Mars not returning to your income sector until 2018 and not meeting up with Saturn here for another three decades, if you haven't already it's time to go into battle.
In his last full week in retrograde motion in your income sector Pluto, already one of the slowest planets in the solar system is barely moving, yet while income matters may have become stuck or stalled that is unlikely to have a negative impact on your confidence. Instead, with Mars drawing close and due to return on the same day Pluto turns direct, there is a sense of anticipation as you sense both a turnaround and a major breakthrough ahead. Fuelling that confidence is the fact that the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts, with a sense of solidarity and 20/20 hindsight across all three fronts. Mercury's direct turn in your career sector on Thursday will see the tide start to turn, with a professional turnaround preceding a turnaround on the income front by just five days.
While the money gods are standing right back this week all is not what it seems, with more representation than you might think. While wearing your professional hat during her final days in your career sector and as she works with lucky Jupiter to lay down the foundations for this powerful new professional year, Venus is at heart a money god. Before leaving your career sector on Saturday, both knowing what lies ahead and that she won't meet up with lucky Jupiter again here for another 12 years, Venus will be doing her best to not only fuel your professional confidence, desires and expectations, but attract opportunities. Yet Venus will always have an eye on where the money is and what's in it for you and the rule of thumb, when she moves through your two professional houses each year, is that where the heart leads the money will follow.
There is likely to be a 'morning after the storm' feel to things this week, with the weekend's lunar eclipse having finally blown the lid off the financial tensions and pressures that have been building for much of this year and especially over recent weeks. With everything out in the open and income and financial forces more evenly balanced, this has been a major push. With Mercury turning direct in your financial sector on Thursday and the Sun leaving on Friday, this provides the incentive to keep your head in the game, eyes open and head out of the sand but also work with the smart head for money, 20/20 hindsight and foresight you have access to, as you bring your annual financial review to a close. In the meantime, with Venus' return to your career sector over the weekend due to open new professional doors, the weekend's lunar eclipse has given income matters a much needed push.
While financial tensions might be running high in the early part of the week, it's unlikely this will dampen your financial confidence and if anything it is more likely to fuel your confidence and resolve on both the income and financial fronts. An opposition between Venus in your financial sector and Uranus in your income sector on Monday is the first chance for forces on both fronts to square off and with both remaining a priority for the next 15 months, it's important to use this as motivation. With the Moon in your income sector this will exacerbate any strong emotional responses, while also giving you a nose for money and a chance to channel any financial tension into motivation as Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos spends his last full week in your career sector. Because financial and income matters are so well supported this can be used as motivation on both fronts.
