Having returned to your financial sector over the weekend Mercury's first week gets off to a dream start, making it important to be on your toes from the get go. Mercury's return brings his smart head for money into play and a chance to get your head in the game, for what has been an ongoing period of development for over 2 years now. Moving into the new week with the Moon in your financial sector and your financial instincts sharp means there is less danger of over thinking things, bringing the perfect balance to Mercury's new strategic approach. Missing is the urgency that normally comes with Mercury's visit, bringing a sense that it's important to spend time back at the drawing board and with all money matters to measure twice and cut once. Things are being held back for a reason.
While Mars' first week in your financial sector got off to a bumpy start it's in his third week that things start to fall into place. It was the Moon's return to your income sector just hours after Mars returns to your financial sector that created some financial tension, but it also made sure you weren't asleep at the wheel, providing the right wakeup calls at the right time. Yet where it was the Moon that caused problems last week, it's the Moon that turns the tables this week, returning to your financial sector on Monday to support, rather than oppose. By the time the Moon and Mars align on Tuesday, bringing your financial instincts, passions and fighting spirit together you'll have a better sense of what you're fighting for, able to pick your battles wisely.
As Pluto spends his first full week in direct motion in your financial sector there is a lack of pressure and urgency, but also plenty of support to slow down and get your bearings before jumping back into things. It's the Moon's return to your financial sector midweek and alignment with Pluto on Thursday that will not only allow your financial instincts to get a sense that the tide has turned, but to finally put the past behind you. There is no doubt that the 5 months Pluto spent in retrograde motion were challenging, but it gave you a chance to deal with old issues and take care of any financial housekeeping. Now the message from the money gods is that it's time to move on and for the rebuilding to begin. Choose to be empowered by the past without letting it define you.
After last week's alliance between lucky Jupiter in your income sector and Uranus in your career sector it seems the tide might be turning your way. This will get a further boost when the Moon moves through your work sector in the early days of the week, giving work matters a push but once more igniting an underlying alliance between income, work and career forces. At this point the financial and professional confidence that is taking hold might feel more like wishful thinking, but there's a need to trust that there is something behind this, while letting things unfold. The Moon's return to your financial sector over the weekend and opposition with Jupiter in your income sector might create some financial tension, but also the wakeup calls to ensure you're not asleep at the wheel.
You have all the time in the world to focus on money matters as a whole, with any urgency this week is on the income front. Due to leave your income sector on Tuesday Venus' final hours are all about defining your desires and expectations and working with the laws of attraction, just as the tide has turned on the work front. When Venus leaves she'll not only wrap up her own short visit, but all the activity for the year. Yet it's what Venus sets in motion and especially all that has gone before her that will determine where the goalposts are set, along with all the untapped potential she'll leave behind. By the time the Moon returns to your work sector on Wednesday, a day after Venus leaves your income sector, you'll have a chance to start gaining some traction.
Mercury's departure from your income sector over the weekend has left you with a smart head for money and a promise that he'll return at the end of next week, opening the door to second chances and a do over. In the meantime, until Venus returns on Tuesday to begin the next phase, the Sun is managing to get just one full day on his own making Monday all about keeping your eyes open and head out of the sand, focused on what is and on an authentic starting point. The Sun knows that in order to rebuild you've got to have a solid foundation and that you can only do what you can, with what you've got, from where you're at. Venus' return will signal the start of the next wave, one of building on from 'what is' and towards what could be, kicking off the most lucrative weeks of the year.
Moving into the week with the Moon and Mercury in your income sector gives you a nose and a smart head for money from the get go, making it important to have your head in the game, finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the beginning. While the Moon will leave on Monday, with most of its influence having been felt over the weekend, this allows you to begin the week with a nose for money, while having the smart head for money to back this up. While this marks the start of a new phase with Mercury, as did Mars before him working with major forces behind the scenes, the tone is different to Mars' fiery passions and fighting spirit. Mercury is urging you to slow right down, spending time at the drawing board, choosing to measure twice and cut once. Slow and steady will win the race.
The Moon makes an important visit to your income sector in the early days of the week, one that will not only bring a nose for money but a much clearer sense of what you're fighting for. While the Moon visits your income sector every 4 weeks, this is not only the first visit this year where there has been planetary activity to link this into, but the first time in nearly 2 years that Mars has been here. This is the Moon's only visit to your income sector during Mars' 6 week visit, with their alignment on Tuesday giving you a nose for money that will get right to the heart of what you're fighting for and which glass ceilings to attack first. This is also going to highlight the growing alliance between income, work and career forces, boosting your financial and professional confidence.
While the Moon's return to your income sector on Wednesday, the first since Pluto turned direct here last week, will bring a nose for money and bring your first real sense that the tide has turned, in the early days of the week it's more important to keep your professional hat on. It's not just that professional matters demand your attention and more because the surest way to progress things and to make the most of the turnaround on the income front, is to work with Venus in her final hours in your career sector. As the planet of money, desire and attraction Venus always has a vested interest in where the money is and before she leaves your career sector on Tuesday will be triggering the laws of attraction, putting your professional desires and expectations on the most lucrative path.
While you'll have a chance to focus on income matters later in the week, by which time the professional conditions will be a lot more conducive to money making, it's financial and money matters as a whole that need your attention for the majority of the week. At this point that is purely because the money gods have no planets assigned to income matters, whereas they have lucky Jupiter in your financial sector. This works to your advantage, for you not only have a chance to establish some firm financial foundations, but also to get professional matters up to speed. Venus' return to your career sector on Tuesday and the Moon's return to your income sector over the weekend will give you a chance to focus more on where the money is. Where the heart leads the money will follow.
Where the money gods have been split between income and financial matters over the last 6 weeks, with some real competition between the two, creating some financial tension, this comes to an end this week in a way that one side will continue and the other won't. Yet rather than a victory or proof of where your focus should be, holding a need for balance is essential. It's Venus' departure from your financial sector on Tuesday that will bring your annual financial review to an end, allowing the money gods to once again shift all their focus onto income matters, just as a new chapter in an ongoing professional chapter begins. This isn't a triumph of income s over financial matters, with the key to ongoing success lying in your ability to keep your financial housekeeping up to date.
While Mercury's departure from your financial sector over the weekend has left you with a smart head for money and promise that he'll return later next week for a double dip visit and Venus' return on Tuesday will keep the momentum going, Monday is a day where you're able to step back and get your bearings. During the month that the Sun will spend in your financial sector, for your annual financial review, Monday is the only day he'll spend on his own. With Venus returning to fuel your financial desires and expectations, focused more on what could be than what is, Monday is a vitally important day for focusing on 'what is', for keeping your eyes open and head out of the sand, focused on establishing an authentic new starting point. You've got to start on the right foot.
