Mercury' return to your financial sector last week puts another tool in your tool belt, at an already extraordinary point of your financial year. With lucky Jupiter now in his final weeks in your financial sector, but Venus in retrograde motion here, Mercury has returned with the smart head for money needed to capitalise on the potential this creates. With Venus in retrograde motion and the Sun not returning until next week, Mercury is the only planet that will align with lucky Jupiter before he leaves. For now, though, it is Mercury's alignment with Venus in the early part of the week that will put heart and mind on the same page. As Mercury begins to trek forward, he passes Venus who is travelling back over ground already covered. This is a chance for Venus to pass on all she has learned in the five weeks she has been here, to a planet that gives you the smart head for money needed to act on that information.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector is always an advantage, ensuring your financial instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go. Yet this will also add some urgency on the income front and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon will leave your financial sector on Monday, wrapping up its last visit before Mercury and Jupiter return to begin your biggest financial push in over a decade, one that will run until 2020. Yet this comes just as Juno is not only spending her last full week in your income sector, but is surrounded by support on the job and career fronts. The Moon leaves you with news of major financial developments ahead, developments that will swamp tiny Juno and her influence. Yet for now she is the only money god on the field and at a stunning point in your professional year, this leaves Juno determined to make her last full week in your income sector count.
The Moon returns to your financial sector on Monday, for what is an ordinary event that could have extraordinary consequences. Ordinary, because the Moon returns every four weeks to fuel your financial instincts and imagination, deliver valuable clues, hunches and insights and then moves on. As the Moon aligns with first Saturn and then Pluto, this is also a chance to check in with the planets driving things on the financial front, for the next three years. This is where the potential for extraordinary consequences comes in. It is the Moon's alignment with Pluto on Tuesday, the first since the planet of change and revolution turned direct, that could spark a sense of rebellion and a call for change. Money matters have been stalled for the last five months, with the Moon and its emotional responses able to jumpstart things.
The Moon might return to your financial sector on Wednesday, but this is likely to have an impact on both the income and financial fronts. This is not the Moon's first visit since Mars returned to your financial sector in May and is not the last before the warrior planet of the cosmos leaves. However, this will be their last alignment, with a chance to bring your financial instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit together. This comes just as Mars is fired up and raring to go, creating a call to take your financial power back. The Moon returns on the same day that the South Node moves into its final three weeks in your financial sector and the North Node, its final two weeks in your income sector. With big developments on the job and career fronts in just a few weeks' time, any financial tension this might create will spark motivation on the income and financial fronts.
Until the Moon returns to your financial sector over the weekend, it is business as usual on the financial front this week. And business as usual means that with the Sun gone from your income sector, the money gods now have all their focus back on money matters as a whole and on the rearview mirror. With both Neptune and Chiron in retrograde motion in your financial sector, this is both a time to regroup and to reflect. Yet when the Moon returns over the weekend it will be to suggest that things won't always be this sleepy. Neptune might not turn direct until later next month and Chiron until early December, but the Moon returns for its last visit before Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returns. This is a visit that has been put on hold for months, with the Moon fuelling your financial instincts and imagination in a way that suggests things are about to heat up, in all the right ways.
As the Sun spends his last full week in your income sector, he has a mix of pressure from Eris in your financial sector and support from forces on the job and career fronts. On one hand pressure from Eris is both familiar and par for the course, with the Sun facing this standoff every year for the last 92 years and always at this point in the year. This is simply the Sun's focus on money coming in, conflicting with Eris' focus on money going out. This is an annual test to ensure you have the balance right. What is not the norm is to have planetary activity in your work and career sectors at the same time. You will rarely have planetary activity in either, let alone both at what is usually a quiet point in your professional year. Instead, any financial tension an opposition between the Sun and Eris might create will very quickly turn into motivation across the income, work and career fronts.
With Jupiter now in his final four weeks in your income sector, you're in the final weeks of a major push to expand your sense of what's possible and to create the framework for ongoing income growth. What you're seeing now is support from the planets that can make things happen. While Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, since his return last October he has been playing a long game. Jupiter's job is to create the conditions for ongoing growth, waiting for the planets with a short term focus, who can exploit that potential. This began with Venus' return to your income sector last month and took another step in the right direction with Mercury's return last week. Where Venus is able to trigger the laws of attraction, Mercury's smart head for money allows you to make strategic choices, decisions and plans. As Venus and Mercury align this week there is a pooling of their resources, ready now to make the coming weeks as lucrative as possible.
Starting the week with the Moon in your income sector is always an advantage, giving you a nose for money and an intuitive read on income matters from the get go. The fact that the Moon will leave on Monday doesn't take away from this at all, for it leaves you with valuable clues, hunches and insights that you can process. This is the Moon's last visit before Mercury and Jupiter return and before the most potentially lucrative 15 months in over a decade kick off. This also creates a sense of urgency for Juno, as the queen of commitment spends her last full week in your financial sector. This was always a short visit designed to give you a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping before new income opportunities open up. With those income developments just around the corner, this adds extra urgency to a push to first get your financial house in order.
The Moon's return to your income sector on Monday is set to have quite an impact, but there is a hidden importance that won't be obvious. That is because the importance is about what isn't, rather than what is there and what that is, is a chance to focus just on income matters. The Moon returns exactly two weeks after Pluto, the planet of change and revolution turned direct here and after he has had time to adjust to an ability to move forward. As well as sharpening your nose for money and giving you an intuitive read on income matters, this could fuel a sense of rebellion, disguised as a sense of impatience or frustration. This also the Moon's last visit before the lunar nodes return to your two money houses. When the Moon returns in four weeks' time, income forces will have to share the attention with money matters as well. This week it is all about income matters and all about a chance to start moving things forward.
While all the focus is on the Moon's return to your income sector this week, it is everything until this point that gives this the power to energise everything. The Moon is always in his last full week in your career sector at this time of year. Yet as there is rarely planetary activity in your income sector at this time of year, this is usually more a valuable chance to give your professional year a lucrative sense of direction. Instead, the Moon not only returns just as Mars is moving into his final four weeks in your income sector but just as he has come out from the shadow of months of delays, setbacks and barriers. With Juno in her last full week in your work sector, you've got your bases loaded across the income, work and career fronts. As well as sharpening your nose for money and fuelling your fighting spirit, this could be a trigger for events across the income, work and career fronts.
While it will be business as usual until the Moon returns to your income sector over the weekend, business as usual is looking pretty good and the news the Moon brings will be even better. Business as usual means, that with the Sun gone from your financial sector, the money gods have shifted all their focus back onto income matters, but also onto the rearview mirror. With Neptune and Chiron both in retrograde motion in your income sector, they're in no hurry. The Moon's return over the weekend should be and is a chance to check in, with the added bonus of a new sense of anticipation. With Neptune not turning direct until late November and Chiron until early December, there is no change coming from either, anytime soon. Instead, the Moon's last visit before Mars returns is picking up on the new opportunities just over the horizon.
For the Sun, spending his last full week in your financial sector there is the right mix of pressure and support. A lot of that support is coming from the Moon and Mars, who join forces in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart midweek. This puts both at a friendly aspect to the Sun, which can't help but fuel your financial confidence, instincts and imagination and the timing couldn't be better. That is because the Moon returns to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart on Wednesday, the same day that the Sun moves into opposition with Eris in your income sector. While this might create some financial tension, a spike in financial confidence at the same time will very quickly turn this into motivation. And with Uranus just three weeks away from returning to your income sector and Mercury and Jupiter just weeks away from your career sector, this could fire up both your financial and professional motivation.
