When the lunar nodes shifted earlier in the month it didn't seem like a big deal. Yet it wasn't until the Moon returned to Pisces late last week that the full implications were felt and with that a pleasant surprise. For the previous 18 months the North Node had been in your relationship sector and the South Node in Pisces. Throughout that time a balance between your personal and relationship needs was policed. Throughout that time the Moon has visited both each month, constantly bringing your personal and relationship needs into conflict. The Moon moves through Pisces late and week and nothing. This has left you with a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but how you police that is up to you. In the meantime, pay attention to romantically charged lunar vibes that kick in over the weekend, for they are a taste of things to come.
When the Sun returned to your income sector over the weekend it was to find a ready made set up. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos had already been here for four weeks, with the war against glass ceilings well underway. By the time the Moon returns on Friday and a New Moon on Saturday brings an opportunity for new beginnings and opportunities, Mars will be just 10 days away from leaving. The Moon's return is likely to be a mixed blessing. On one hand a sharp nose for money and a New Moon bring the potential for an income breakthrough. Yet this will exacerbate any financial tension as Mars heads into opposition with Saturn in your financial sector. Yet despite the financial tension this might create, happening on a New Moon this is the push that could trigger a breakthrough.
Things take on a quieter note this week, however there are some exciting clues over the weekend. So far this year all the planetary activity has been focused on money matters as a whole. This is the norm, with the money gods not usually turning their attention onto income matters until the Sun returns to your income sector in late June. When the Moon returns to your income sector over the weekend this should be nothing more than a chance to sharpen your nose for money. This is something all the Moon's monthly visits will do. In that respect there will be nothing unusual about the Moon's return, until your nose for money actually kicks in. For the first time this year you're likely to pick up on the approach of new income opportunities, by this point just days away. With Mars returning to your income sector early next month there will be new potential in the air.
For better or worse, you got your first taste of what having the lunar nodes in your two money houses means late last week. To start with there was nothing out of the ordinary about the Moon's return to your financial sector last week. The Moon returns every four weeks, sharpens your financial instincts and imagination and moves on. That was still the case, except this time there is likely to have been some financial tension. You can't get financial tension from the Moon's monthly visit unless it moves into opposition with forces on the income front and there has been none since last August. What you experienced was the Moon's first alignment with the South Node in your financial sector and opposition with the North Node in your income sector in 17 years. This took you to the frontline of what is now a battle to find a balance between money coming in and money going out.
The Moon only left your financial sector on Sunday, allowing you to start the week with your financial instincts sharp and your financial imagination engaged from the get go. The Moon returns every four weeks and whenever this happens over the weekend, the rule of thumb is that you get all the benefits of having the Moon on board, but none of the disadvantages. For the last 18 months those disadvantages have been financial tension and pressure. For until the lunar nodes left your two money houses earlier in the month, this involved an opposition with the North Node in your income sector. The fact that there was no financial tension was your first real sense that the tide really has turned. This will also have allayed a fear, with a lucrative sense of direction likely to be just as robust.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector is always a mixed blessing or at least it has been since Jupiter's return to your income sector last year. The Moon can't move through without moving into opposition, but this time we can't blame the Moon. Financial tension came to a head late last week when Venus and Jupiter moved into opposition, for the first time between your income and financial sectors in 12 years. However, we're talking about the planets of money and luck here, so this is more likely to create an opportunity for a breakthrough. The Moon will exacerbate financial tension just as they were easing off, but with your financial instincts sharp you're able to get inside this and turn it around. This is a chance to get the most out of Jupiter's final weeks in retrograde motion in your income sector and Venus' final weeks in your financial sector.
The Sun's departure from your financial sector over the weekend has taken the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters. This creates another sea change in your financial year. The first sea change was Ceres' return in early February, on a mission to update your financial needs and priorities. Another sea change in early March saw Mars return to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit. A month later Mercury returned with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. The Sun's return was another sea change, making it all about reality checks. That's when Mercury, Mars and Ceres left, leaving the Sun to spend the majority of his month long visit just getting everything out in the open. Now Mercury is back and on his own, with another sea change bringing you to a point where it's time to start making financial choices, decisions and plans.
There is a need to expect come financial tension this week, but not to be alarmed by it. The Sun's return to your financial sector over the weekend has put the spotlight on your financial situation and money matters, something that happens at this time every year. Yet with Mars already here for four weeks by then, things kicked off earlier this year and with a lot of hot headed enthusiasm. This is not a problem, except for the fact that with Saturn on the other side of the sky in your income sector there is an inevitable opposition. This is a good week for Saturn and income matters, with support from job and career forces continuing. It is an opposition between Mars and Saturn that could create some financial tension. A New Moon in your financial sector could exacerbate things, but also increase the potential for a breakthrough on both fronts.
As much as this is a quiet week and the money gods will be lying low, there is every reason for confidence. There will also be the first signs of change over the weekend. For the majority of the week the money gods' sole focus is on income matters, but with both planets here in retrograde motion this is a quiet point of the year. The Moon's visit last week was a chance to sharpen your nose for money and get your bearings. With a quieter week on the job front this week as well there is a sense that you're waiting for something. That something is Venus' return to your work sector early next month, when she'll be able to exploit new job potential and untapped income potential. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your financial sector will see your financial instincts and imagination kick in, with something pending to get excited about.
There are likely to be all kinds of implications from the Moon's visit to your income sector last week, making it clear that something has shifted. This was the Moon's first visit since the South Node shifted here earlier in the month, providing valuable insight on the income and financial fronts. Any financial tension this may have created will have already turned into motivation, especially as the Sun joins Mars in your work sector. This is even without new developments on the income front, with Jupiter in his final weeks in retrograde motion in your career sector, the nose for money was priceless. This was the first practice run for a pair of eclipses in your income and financial sectors in August, the element of fate now in play on both fronts. This leaves you with a nose for money in an important week for both job and career matters.
The Moon only left your income sector on Sunday, giving you a nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. If that's all that this did that would be a huge advantage, but something else took place over the weekend, a transformation of sorts. This was the Moon's first visit since Venus' rare double dip visit last month, so was always going to be a chance to tap back into the confidence and untapped potential she left you with. Yet the biggest factor was the missing financial tension that normally accompanies these monthly visits. Instead income matters now have nothing but green lights and it will stay that way. The Moon only left on Sunday, allowing you to start the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go, but also a chance to digest the implications.
Starting the week with the Moon in your income sector will always be a double edge sword. Or at least it has been since Jupiter returned to your financial sector last September. Since then the Moon can't return to your income sector without moving into opposition. So while this allows you to start the week with your nose for money sharp from the get go, this was always going to create the potential for financial tension. The Moon didn't have to worry about that for Venus and Jupiter had the jump on that, with their opposition late last week already bringing tension between income and money matters to a head. The Moon may exacerbate this just when it should be easing off. However, this will keep you on your toes as Jupiter moves into his final weeks in retrograde motion in your financial sector and Venus into her final weeks in your income sector.
