As Jupiter spends his first full week in your financial sector in over a decade, the whole dynamics of your financial year have shifted, if not the year itself. Until Uranus returns to your income sector next May, there are no challenges for Jupiter. And as he won't turn retrograde until March, this gives money matters a five month run where there is no speedbumps and nothing to slow things down. This is the complete opposite to the 13 months Jupiter has just spent in your relationship sector. This opens the door to a massive period of financial growth, one that will extend beyond Jupiter's departure next November and right out to March 2019. But it all starts now, with this the first full week of this powerful new journey. By the time Mercury returns on Tuesday Jupiter will have been here for six days, just enough time to get a feel for things before needing to get your head in the game.
Don't misconstrue a fairly quiet and settled week on the financial front for nothing happening. On Friday, Saturn will move into his final two months in your financial sector and having spent last week aligned with the North Node, this has boosted your financial confidence. More importantly it has also given you a clearer sense of financial direction. It's time to bring things home and end a three year financial boot camp by taking your power back. Yet with Mercury not returning with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and start making specific choices, decisions and plans, the focus is still on the big picture. The money gods also have an undercover money god on the field, one that won't get in the way of Saturn's financial campaign. That undercover money god is Venus, planet of money. In her first full week in your work sector, Venus is quietly steering things in a lucrative direction.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your income sector last week, the first since the last planet left for the year, you've had a chance to regroup and get a sense of your income expectations moving forward. However, while the Moon visits once a month, this was an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences. For while the Moon moved on, it was here during Jupiter's crucial early days in your work sector. The Moon has since moved on, but as Jupiter spends his first full week in your work sector in over a decade, it's with the lucrative sense of direction the Moon has left you with. Teaming up with Neptune in your career sector, for the first and only time in our lifetime, you're not only moving into an expansive period of growth on the job front, but professionally in general. To have been able to point this in a lucrative direction from the get go was priceless.
The Moon has only just left your income sector in the closing hours of the weekend, allowing you to start the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go. The Moon's visit capped off an extraordinary four weeks on the income front, one that saw support for the North Node on the income front bounce from powerful forces on the job and career fronts. It was an alignment between the North Node and Saturn in your work sector last week that allows you to start the week feeling confident on both fronts. The North Node is giving you a clear sense of direction on the income front and this has allowed this to align with Saturn's sense of direction on the job front. As you move into some powerful months on the job front, this is now in tandem with a lucrative sense of direction. There should be a new sense of confidence across the income, work and career fronts.
While starting the week with the Moon in your income sector is an advantage, it might exacerbate any financial tension. Yet even if it does, this is one of those times when this will still work to your advantage. The week starts with Mars not only moving into his final seven days in your income sector, but in opposition with Chiron, in retrograde motion in your financial sector. This has been a reality for every Mars visit to your income sector, since Chiron returned to your financial sector in 2010, but is their last for another 48 years. Chiron is the gatekeeper to old financial demons and Mars is on a mission to vanquish them. Yet where there is financial tension there is a chance for a breakthrough, especially when it comes to pushing through old financial demons, doubts or a lack of confidence. Mars is declaring war on anything that is stopping you from fighting for what you deserve.
Jupiter's departure from your income sector last week has left behind a massive legacy and a huge amount of potential that will take months to exploit. However, despite how it might feel at the start of the week, this has seen the financial pressure of the last 13 months drop back. With Jupiter here the pressure between income and financial forces doesn't exist, except fleeting. The Sun, in his last full week in your income sector, will move into opposition with Eris in your financial sector at the start of the week and with Uranus, in the lead up to Friday's New Moon. However, in both cases financial tension comes to a head, the Sun moves on and it drops back. The difference with Jupiter is that it didn't drop back. As Venus, planet of money spends her first full week in your income sector she is on a mission to exploit all the potential created over the last 13 months. With Mars returning next week, the best is still to come.
Jupiter's return to your income sector last week not only changed the dynamics of your financial year, but the year itself. Jupiter's departure from Libra has seen a lot of the pressure of the last 13 months drop back, with new income growth a bonus. Yet as Jupiter spends his first full week in your income sector in over a decade, this is huge. There are three things going for Jupiter that are set to make this an extremely lucrative period stretching out in front of you. The first is that for the first, last and only time in our lifetime, Jupiter has returned to find Neptune in your work sector. Neptune will remain here long after Jupiter leaves next November, with income and job growth destined to go hand in hand. Secondly, there is the lack of roadblocks of anything that can slow things down. Jupiter has a completely clear run until he turns retrograde in March. The third thing going for Jupiter is the support and confidence from the get go.
While an alignment between Saturn in your income sector and the North Node in your career sector ended over the weekend, the implications are still being absorbed. The Moon only left your career sector in the closing hours of the weekend, allowing you to start the week with your professional instincts sharp from the get go. This is crucial for Saturn and income matters, for this has been a chance to put a lucrative sense of direction and sense of professional direction on the same page. Saturn will move into his final two months in your income sector on Friday and with support to bring things home arriving early next month, having a sense of direction is everything. What the last four weeks have done is see income, work and career forces come together in a more compact and interconnected way.
Since turning direct in your income sector late last month, Pluto has had the support of Venus and Mars in your career sector. That support was there as the tide turned and has been there ever since, but they are starting to move on. Venus left over the weekend and Mars will leave early next week, taking away the trainer wheels. However, by then Pluto will have been in direct motion for over three weeks and Saturn will be just under two months away. You needed that support in the early weeks, but by early next week it will be time to take the trainer wheels off. However, Mars will spend this one last week in your career sector and along with Pluto, the planets of war and revolution will be working to make it count. By the time she leaves your career sector over the weekend, Venus has pointed your professional year in a lucrative direction.
Starting the week with the Moon having just left your financial sector, gives you the best of both worlds. This allows you to start the week with your financial instincts sharp from the get go, but without the strong emotional responses the Moon can bring. In this case the Moon was able to cap off what had been a good four week run for money matters. A succession of alignments has not only boosted your financial confidence, but has left you with a clearer sense of financial direction. This is what the Moon was able to tap into over the weekend, allowing you to start the week with your financial confidence, instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. Even if you think this feels more like wishful thinking, play along with it. At the same time Venus' return to your career sector over the weekend has positive implications on the income front. As the planet of money, Venus is now quietly steering things in a lucrative direction.
On paper the week is getting off to a bad start, but chances are that's not how this is being experienced. The week not only begins with Mars, in his final week in your financial sector in opposition with Chiron in your income sector, but with the Moon exacerbating things. This is their last opposition here for another 48 years and this is going to fire up Mars' financial passions and fighting spirit. With the Moon's strong emotional responses this has the potential to exacerbate financial tensions even more. Yet by coincidence this comes just as Jupiter is spending his first full week in your career sector in over a decade, where he's throwing his full weight behind income forces. With Mars being supported by rebellious Pluto, this is more to fire up your motivation on both fronts and may even trigger a breakthrough.
Jupiter's departure from your financial sector hasn't taken away all the financial tension and pressure, but it has defused the situation and made it impossible for anything to stick. There are likely to be two periods when financial tension comes to a head this week. The first is at the start of the week. This is when the Sun, in his final hours in your financial sector, will move into opposition with Eris, in retrograde motion in your income sector. The second time will be in the lead up to Friday's New Moon in your financial sector, this time as the Sun moves into opposition with Uranus, again in retrograde motion in your income sector. The key is the word 'again' and not 'continue', for these are passing periods of financial tension that will drop off on the other side. With a smart head for money and Venus on board, this will quickly turn to motivation.
