When the Sun left your financial sector last Tuesday this not only took the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters but ended all planetary activity on this side of the financial fence. Fortunately, the Moon not only returned just before the Sun left but stayed on for another two days, something that has not only left you with a better read on money matters but gave you a chance to get a read on the journey the previous month had taken you on. Unlike your income sector, where there is continuous planetary activity all year your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, was only active for 30 days. This makes it important to keep trusting your financial instincts. Meanwhile, the Moon's friendly aspect to planets in your income sector over the weekend will see it leave you with a new sense of insight and confidence across the income, work and career fronts as you move into the new working week.
There is a lot of action on both sides of the financial fence this week but also the first sign that there is some competition between the two. Unlike your income sector, where Mars has been since August and will be until he wraps up his longest visit in eight decades in March, your financial sector is only active for five weeks this year. To begin with, they are staying away from each other, with Mars not only starting the week at a friendly aspect to Saturn in your career sector but with the Moon ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged. This powerful coming together of Saturn's ability to move things forward professionally and Mars' focus on untapped income potential will peak on Thursday, right in the heart of the working week. However, this is not only the Sun's first full week in your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have but Venus and Mercury's last. By midweek there could be some financial tension as they compete for your attention, but it won't take much to turn this into motivation.
While the Moon will leave your financial sector on Monday and this is more the tail end of a visit over the weekend grazing the early hours of the new week, this would always be an advantage. At the very least this will leave you with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled and feeling more emotionally and intuitively engaged. Even the Moon's alignment with Pluto just before leaving is a monthly event but not the impact this could have. By this point Pluto has been in direct motion for nearly two months, with the planet of change and revolution getting restless, something that a sense of anticipation will add fuel to. What your financial instincts will be picking up on is the approach of Venus and Mercury, who having both begun the year in your financial sector are returning next week to bring it home. After 14 years Pluto is leaving in March, so this is something he is more than ready for.
The Moon is making a well timed visit to your financial sector and not just because returning on Monday this will allow you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. What makes the timing auspicious is that this will ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged as for the second time in as many months a friendly aspect between Saturn here and Mars in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart begins. When Saturn and Mars came together at the end of September it was for the first time in 30 years, but just two months later they have come together again. This time Saturn, who was in retrograde motion then is now in direct motion and leaving in March he is giving you the power to move mountains if you have to, as you not only look to the future but get serious about taking your financial power back. This time Mars is in retrograde motion and while still able to fuel your financial confidence, instincts and imagination is connecting you to your old fighting spirit.
On both sides of the financial fence there is change in the air but also a lack of urgency and a call to stay in the moment. The week begins with the Moon wrapping up a visit to your work sector that over the weekend saw it form a friendly aspect to planets on the income and career fronts, as it does with each monthly visit. The timing means that you not only begin the week emotionally and intuitively engaged but with an intuitive edge across the income, work and career fronts. While this will get any new working week off to a good start, with the dwarf planet Ceres moving into her final three weeks in your income sector on Monday the timing couldn't be better. This comes just as Jupiter, in his first full week in direct motion in your financial sector and Neptune, in his final days in retrograde motion before turning direct over the weekend are both at a standstill. The Moon's return from Wednesday to Friday will fuel your financial instincts and imagination just as the financial tides are turning.
While the Moon won't return to your financial sector until the weekend, there is already a growing sense of financial confidence and anticipation. It was over the weekend that both Mercury and Venus, the planet of money moved into a friendly aspect to Chiron, the planet of healing in your financial sector. With Chiron still in retrograde motion, this was a chance to lay some old financial ghosts and demons to rest. This came just as Jupiter's direct turn in your financial sector last week means that the planet of luck and expansion is on his way back. By the time the Moon returns over the weekend Jupiter will be less than three weeks away and this is when things will start to get exciting. Not only will the Moon align with the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos as it moves through but just as first Mercury and then Venus move into a friendly aspect. As the Moon fuels your financial instincts and imagination this can also awaken your financial passions and fighting spirit.
While the money gods have shifted their focus back onto the other side of the financial fence after the Sun left your income sector last week, this has left a lasting legacy that is still playing out. It was the Sun's departure from your income sector last Tuesday that not only took the solar spotlight off your income situation, matters and options but ended all planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence, just 30 days after it began. Fortunately, the Moon returned just before the Sun left and stayed on for another two days, allowing you to collect all the information and insight needed to maintain a lucrative sense of direction. More importantly, the Moon was here when Jupiter turned direct in your work sector. The planet of luck and expansion will move into his final three weeks in your work sector on Wednesday and as he works to bring this professional year home it will be with a clear sense of where the money is.
As the Sun spends his first full week in your income sector and Venus and Mercury their last, this makes this another important week on the income side of the financial fence. However, for the first time since Venus returned to begin the first planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence since January less than two weeks ago, this is starting to have an impact on Mars, on the other side of the financial fence in your financial sector. Until now they have been keeping to themselves but on Wednesday Mercury and just a day later Venus will move into opposition with Mars and the timing couldn't be better. It is on Monday that Mars, in retrograde motion in your financial sector moves into a friendly aspect to Saturn for the second time in just two months. This is going to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, which a clash with Venus and Mercury will add fuel to. At the same time, Mercury's smart head for money and Venus' confidence can turn this into motivation on both sides of the financial fence.
While the Moon will leave your income sector on Monday, this allows you to begin the week with a sharp nose for money from the start but also, thanks to a friendly aspect to planets on the job and career fronts over the weekend with a lot of information, insights and messages to unpack. It is the Moon's alignment with Pluto just before leaving that could also trigger a sense of anticipation or even rebellion. Since the planet of change and revolution returned in 2008 the Moon's monthly visits have always brought them together, but there is something different this time. It has been nearly two months since Pluto turned retrograde and as he is leaving in March, he is getting restless. There is also change in the air, with Venus and Mercury both joining Pluto here next week. Both began the year in your income sector and they are returning next week to bring this financial year home.
Timing is everything and especially when it comes to the Moon's return to your income sector on Monday. Less because this will allow you to begin the week with a sharp nose for money and more because this will ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged as for the second time in as many months a friendly aspect between Saturn here and Mars in your work sector begins. When Saturn and Mars came together to create this powerful alliance on the income and job fronts it was for the first time here in 30 years, but just two months later it is coming together again. This time Saturn is back in direct motion and Mars is now in retrograde motion, joining forces to move things forward on the income front while exploiting what has already been invested on the job front. This is something that won't peak until Thursday and until leaving on Wednesday the Moon is getting you right inside the powerful forces at play.
Whether it is Jupiter in his first full week in direct motion in your income sector or Neptune ahead of his direct turn here over the weekend, both are at a standstill or at least that is the case at the start of the week. In retrograde motion Neptune isn't moving, with the planet of dreams and fantasies standing still in a way that is giving you your clearest sense yet of where you have been while keeping the doors to the past open until the end of the week. By the time the Moon returns to your income sector on Wednesday, Neptune is still four days away from turning direct and while Jupiter has only been in direct motion for six days by then, this is when he moves into his final three weeks here. With Jupiter just starting to inch forward and leaving in 21 days, not to return for another decade, the Moon's intuitive edge will give you a read on where the planet of luck and expansion is drawing your attention. The Moon can also act as a trigger for both new and untapped income potential.
On both sides of the financial fence this is a quiet week, but there is also a growing sense of anticipation on both sides. It was a month ago that Mercury not only left your financial sector, the side of the financial fence where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have but ended all planetary activity. It was a day later that Jupiter left your income sector and while leaving behind Chiron and the dwarf planet Eris, with both in retrograde motion and playing a long game, this saw things dial right back. However, even before the Moon returns to your income sector your sixth sense will be picking up on change in the air. Having turned direct last week, by the time the Moon returns on Friday the planet of luck and expansion will be on his way back and will be less than three weeks away from returning. At the same time, as you move into the new week the dwarf planet Ceres is just 21 days away from your financial sector and from her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years.
