While it might not seem so at first, you have reached a major turning point in your financial year, one that begins slow and a little bumpy at the start of the week, but will be in full flight by the end of the week. In a case of what might seem like bad timing but is in fact good timing, the Moon's position in your income sector on Monday and opposition with Saturn, just as he turns direct in your financial sector will create the right kind of financial tension at the right time. The Moon will return to your income sector each month, giving you a nose for money and some financial wakeup calls, but the difference on Monday is that the push will come at the very moment the tide turns. Mars' return to your financial sector on Saturday will fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit.
Venus' departure from your income sector over the weekend has not only wrapped up all the planetary activity here for the year, but has left you with no activity in either of your money houses. Yet with Mars in his days in your work sector before leaving over the weekend all the income potential planted over recent weeks still has plenty of leverage and is still a work in progress. What could provide a critical trigger for income matters could come as early as midweek, with the Moon's return coming just days after Venus left and just days before Mars is due to leave your work sector on Saturday. This brings a nose for money needed to pick up on income potential there to be seized, while making it easier to work smarter. Knowing where the money is allows you to pick your battles wisely.
A changing of the guard on the income front in the early days of the week is not only a transition between the way that you look at and approach income matters, but the whole environment that you're working with. Jupiter's departure from your income sector last week brought a massive yearlong push to an end, one that you'll get to benefit from for month, if not years to come, shifting the focus to tying up loose ends and bringing things back to a more practical, boots on the ground approach. With the Sun leaving your income sector on Wednesday the job of getting a clear sense of your short and long term objectives comes to an end, but with Venus having only returned to your income sector over the weekend her job of attracting opportunities has only just begun.
The early days of the week are all about letting the fact that your luck has changed and the whole dynamics on the income front have changed sink in, as it's something that is a brand new experience. Yes, lucky Jupiter returns to your income sector every 12 years and always around this time of year, the last time he returned before the Sun and your annual update began was in 1872, making the fact that your luck has changed with no lead up or steps building up to this a brand new experience. The Sun will return on Wednesday, Mercury later next week and Venus next month, but that will be after the fact, giving you a chance, in the early days of the week, to let the enormity of this shift sink in, without having to even think about the 'when, where and how'. Trust that your luck has changed.
The Moon's visit to your financial sector last week, the first since both Neptune and Chiron turned direct here, but also the last before new income opportunities open up next month, has given you a chance to get your bearings and a sense of what this retrograde phase has opened the door to. It's the Moon's position in your career sector in the early days of the week, during the last visit before new doors open on the income front that allows you to get your professional bearings and start looking to the future. A period of financial review will continue through until November, so focus on money matters as a whole is now via the rear view mirror. However, already you're lining up for new income opportunities, which lay on the road ahead. Income and money matters now have a clear divide.
An important week for both financial and income matters is also two very different stories, with such a clear divide between the two that you should have no problem seeing them as two different games. Uranus' retrograde turn in your financial sector is going to increase the focus that was already on the past, putting all your focus when it comes to money matters on the rear view mirror and the road behind, beginning a slow review phase that will continue through to December. Yet what is happening on the income front couldn't be more different, for not only is the focus on the future, with Mars leaving your income sector over the weekend, but there is a real sense of urgency. It's time to take a sledgehammer to any remaining glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind.
Don't be alarmed by any financial tension as you move into the new week or see this as a negative, for the timing couldn't be better. It's the Moon's position in your financial sector on Monday and opposition with Saturn, at the same time that he turns direct that provide the right push at the right time. The Moon returned to your financial sector on Sunday and will leave on Tuesday, but it's the fact that he'll move into opposition with Saturn on Monday, at the very time that he's turning direct and the tide turns, that will provide the right push at the right time. You've been poised, waiting for this moment for months now and when it comes, the timing of this push couldn't be better. Mars' return to your income sector over the weekend fires things up even more.
Even if Venus hadn't left your financial sector over the weekend, leaving you with no planetary activity there or in either of your money houses until Mars returns to your income sector in September, the focus would have shifted to professional matters this week. With lucky Jupiter spending his first full week in your career sector and returning for the first time on his own to kick things off since 1872, until the Sun gets here on Wednesday you're still adjusting to the enormity of the professional shift this has created. You almost don't want or need to put your money hat on at this stage, however the Moon's return to your financial sector midweek will require that you do, for as your financial instincts kick in this will be a chance to tie up any loose ends.
There is not just a changing of the guard on the money front this week there is a shift in the whole dynamics. Until Jupiter left your financial sector last week there was a long term push to expand your sense of what's possible, of what you're aiming for and to plan for the future. With that banked and Jupiter not returning until 2025, this has set your financial priorities for the coming year, giving you something to work towards. However, this also left the Sun and Mercury behind, shifting the focus back to your annual financial review and the smart and practical steps required in any short term money matters and towards long term financial goals. While the Sun leaves on Wednesday the dynamics have shifted yet again, with Venus' return now triggering the laws of attraction.
As tempting as it might be to over think things and to start making choices, decisions and plans, especially with Jupiter spending his first full week in your financial sector and a New Moon at the end of the week bringing a need and a chance to draw a new line in the sand, in the early days of the week in particular keep an open mind. It's the Sun's return to your financial sector on Wednesday that will begin the more practical phase and with Mercury returning later next week and Venus in August, it won't be long before you have a whole squad of money gods on the case. In the early days of the week you have a chance to focus on the big picture, with lucky Jupiter's big picture ideas and concepts coming through unfiltered. Embrace grandiose concepts, without the 'when, where and how'.
The Moon's visit to your income sector last week, the first since both Neptune and Chiron turned retrograde here and the last before this week's massive professional turnaround, allows you to move into the new week with a nose for money and a better sense that the doors really are open to second chances and that you have a chance to retrace your steps. It's on Monday that Saturn turns direct in your career sector, starting a major turnaround on the career front just as work matters are coming together. With Mars returning to your career sector at the end of the week, both work and career forces are now taking up the slack, making the nose for money and hindsight you've moved into the new week with invaluable. The more things move forward professionally the more the money will follow.
All is not what it seems this week, for while there is a quiet and understated subtlety to Uranus' direct turn in your income sector, which is in stark contrast to the bluster and urgency on the financial front, where the real durability and opportunities are is on the income front. With Mars leaving your financial sector on Saturday and wrapping up his longest visit in 32 years, he's doing everything he can to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, while at the same time you're also finalising your financial priorities. You're likely to hardly notice Uranus' retrograde turn in your income sector, with the implications of this unlikely to strike home for a few weeks, when as new doors open on the work front this unlocked the doors to second chances and untapped potential.
