First impressions suggest a low key month as far as either income or money matters and in fact you have the bare minimum of cosmic support, which is the Moon's monthly visits to your two money houses. The Moon will move through your income sector from the 10th September to the 12th September and through your financial sector from the 23rd September to the 25th September. On paper, all this represents is a chance to check in for a few days. However, delve a little deeper and you will find that not only is this an important month on both fronts, but these lunar vibes more than meets the eye. All planetary activity on the income front for the year wrapped up when Venus left in July. However, by then there had been five months of planetary activity, including two visits from Mercury. This has created a lot of untapped income potential, which is only now coming to the fore as things start to move on the work front. By the time the Moon moves through your income sector from the 10th September to the 12th September and a nose for money kicks in, things will be racing on the job front. If this doesn't trigger income potential it will at least point things in a lucrative direction. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your financial sector from the 23rd September to the 25th September is the first before lucky Jupiter arrives to kick off your most expansive financial year in over a decade. This is the money gods' last chance to line up for Jupiter's return in early October.
On paper it looks like the balance of power is on the financial front as a whole, but income matters also have a horse in the race. Venus' departure from your income sector may have seen all planetary activity on the income front end last month, but as the last planet to move through she was uniquely qualified to point things in a lucrative direction. All the planets that moved through your income sector this year all shared one thing in common. They all encountered lucky Jupiter in your work sector, for the first time in 12 years. With Jupiter leaving early next month, this last full month in your work sector for another 11 years makes this a huge month for work and job matters. Keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground from the 12th September to the 14th September. This will be the Moon's last visit to your income sector before Jupiter leaves and this could be a trigger for both income and work matters. With the Sun returning to your work sector on the 20th September, Mercury on the 30th September and Venus and Mars next month, work and income matters are in safe hands. As far as the money gods are concerned the focus is on money matters as a whole, as Saturn spends his first full month in direct motion in your financial sector in nearly five months. This was the third retrograde phase in as many years, but this time will feel different. Finally a three year financial boot camp is in its final months and on the 20th September Saturn will move into his final three months. The Moon's return from the 25th September to the 28th September will bring clues on how to play these final months.
September is usually the month when money matters get to take their power back and prepare for a turnaround. For Pluto, in your financial sector from 2008 to 2024, the middle months of each year are to be tolerated. Pluto not only spends from April to September of each year in retrograde motion, July is always the midway point of the most active months of the year for income matters. Pluto usually ignores income forces and waits for them to pass. And he doesn't usually have to wait long. Last year it look just six weeks for all the planets to move through your income sector and it was over by the 23rd July. With Pluto not turning direct until late July, this gave Pluto over two months to quietly get on with his retrograde phase and to bring the focus back onto money matters. And last year wasn't unique, with the norm. No wonder that Pluto isn't happy this year. Not only is there still planetary activity in your income sector as you move into September, it has been active since early June. Not only that, this year with Juno in your financial sector you have twice the number of planets in your financial sector in a year when you also had twice the number of planets in your income sector. This meant twice the amount of oppositions. Those are over, but until Ceres leaves your income sector on the 24th September, Pluto still has to compromise and share the money gods' attention. With Pluto turning direct on the 29th September, he has just five days uninterrupted retrograde phase, without activity on the income front. But even then, with Juno having turned direct in your financial sector late last month, his final weeks in retrograde motion also have eyes on the road ahead.
August is the month that the solar spotlight is on your income situation, matters and options, but it is not uncommon to still have things playing out as you move into September. Last year the Sun was the last to leave your income sector, so everything was over by the end of August. That is not the case this year, with Mars making his first visit in two years, Ceres her first visit in four years and Venus, held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, running late. Not only that, a lunar eclipse in your financial sector early last month and a total solar eclipse in your income sector later in the month, really saw the pot stirred in August. This is because apart from the planets in your income sector, for the first time in 17 years you also have the North Node here. It was because the North Node was here that last month's New Moon was a solar eclipse and because it was so close to the Sun at the time that it was a total solar eclipse. Yet whatever this eclipse opened the doors to, it is this month that you get to exploit them. Mars is in your income sector until the 5th September, so will be here when Mercury retrogrades back in for a short double dip visit from the 1st September to the 10th September. Mercury wasn't here during either eclipses, so is returning to see what he can do to exploit them. With Venus here until the 20th September, she will be on hand to exploit the income potential as well. Venus' departure should finally bring all the planetary activity to a close but it won't. For Ceres will not only return on the 24th September, she won't leave until June 2018. With more eclipses ahead, this is not just a potentially lucrative phase, but a lucrative era.
That the focus is on income matters at this time of year is a given, but there is not only a lot of fire power on display, it comes at a critical point in a critical year. It was just last September that Jupiter left your income sector, bringing a 13 month visit to an end. The Sun, Mercury and Venus were all gone by early October 2016, but having the North Node here until May 2017 kept the momentum going. There has been a lot of potential building for a long time, so much so that this has been waiting for the right trigger. Mercury recognised the potential when he returned in late July, for what should have been a 15 day visit aimed at giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, ahead of the Sun's return. Yet sensing the potential, Mercury instead stayed put. It was Mercury's retrograde turn last month that will see him retrograde back out on the 1st September, only to turn direct four days later and then return to your income sector on the 10th September. In the time that Mercury is absent, Mars will return on the 5th September and a day later, a Full Moon on the financial front will bring income and money matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point. This is the push start both need and Mars in particular will respond by fuelling your passions and fighting spirit. This is when the war on glass ceilings really begins. However, the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year will kick off when Venus returns to your income sector on the 20th September, the same day as a New Moon here just hours later. By the time the Sun leaves Mercury, Mars and Venus will have income matters under control, with Mars staying on until later next month.
Even before the Sun's return to your income sector on the 23rd September the focus was always going to be on income matters. As it has been every month since Jupiter returned last September. However, this month was always going to be more important, for with Jupiter leaving early next month, this is his last full month here, for another 11 years. This is also when the support crew starts arriving, the crew that will not only make Jupiter's final weeks count, but will help extract all the potential. While Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion and this is your luckiest year for income growth and expansion in over a decade, the reality is that most of the real results will come after Jupiter is gone. The Sun will return on the 23rd October to shine the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options and Mercury's return on the 30th September will bring the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. However, it's not until Venus and Mars return next month that real riches will be revealed. Venus will be gone by the time Jupiter leaves, but the planet of money will only miss him by four days. Venus' return to your income sector will always be the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year, so to have Jupiter leave just four days earlier, means everything will be set up by the time she returns. Mars will return nine days later, ready to take a sledgehammer and battering ram to any remaining glass ceilings. But this is the month where Jupiter will bulldoze a path for the planets following in his tracks.
First impressions reveal not a lot happening this month, with no planetary activity in either of your two money houses and just the Moon's monthly visits to your income and financial sectors. However, what you can't know is how much the last few months have been preparing you for what lies ahead or how huge what lies ahead really is. It was in the final days of August that Venus, planet of money left your career sector, leaving you with a confident sense of professional direction and a lucrative sense of direction. You might not know that you do, but Venus coded this into your heart before she left, so following your heart professionally means that you are automatically moving into a lucrative direction. What you don't know and Venus did, is where that lucrative sense of direction lead, which is to lucky Jupiter's return to your income sector early next month. No other planet will return to your income sector before Jupiter, so there will be no lead up, run or other way to prepare. One moment you are running as normal and the next minute, Jupiter's return to your income sector on the 11th October will kick off the most lucrative months in over a decade, months that will run for over a year, through to January 2019. The only preparation you'll have is the Moon's return to your income sector from the 23rd September to the 25th September. This is an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences, with an ordinary monthly opportunity to listen to your nose for money, able to line you up for next month's extraordinary developments.
It was Saturn's direct turn in your income sector late last month that capped off an extraordinary professional month. It was last month's total solar eclipse in your career sector that has jump started and rebooted your whole professional game, with implications that will take the majority of the next two years to fully play out. You begin the month with Mars still in your career sector, but more importantly with Venus here until the 20th September. Venus might be working to attract professional opportunities and to capitalise on all of the developments over recent months, but she is also the planet of money. Venus will happily work with the professional gods to get maximum results, but she is first and foremost the planet of money, so will always have an eye on where the money is. And this month where the money is, is Saturn, in his early weeks in direct motion in your income sector. Venus will be doing everything that she can to support Saturn and will be providing the professional backing to get income matters back up to speed again. This was Saturn's third retrograde phase in your income sector in as many years, but also the last for another 28 years. For as Saturn starts to gain speed he is also heading for the exit door, finally wrapping up a three year visit in December. Venus knows she won't see Saturn here again for another 28 years, so will be working throughout her time in your career sector, to point your professional year in a lucrative direction.
By the time you reach September the focus is nearly always back onto your income situation and matters. The middle months of any year are always the most active of any year for money matters. But this is usually over by the end of August and last year was over by the end of July. However, held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, Venus didn't even return until after the Sun had left and didn't leave until the 26th August. Even then, with Ceres making her first visit to your financial sector in four years and not due to leave until the 24th September, the money gods are still dividing their attention. From Ceres' departure to Pluto's direct turn in your income sector on the 29th September, he has just five days in which to have all the focus on his time in retrograde motion. Yet even then, with Juno in your income sector this year as well, her retrograde turn late last month means the tide has already started to turn on the income front. For Pluto, in your income sector from 2008 to 2024 and in retrograde motion from April to September each year, this is when he's able to go into hibernation. Not this year and chances are this is fuelling a sense of rebellion. Either in his final weeks in retrograde motion or after his direct turn, Pluto will be fighting to make income matters a priority. It is Venus' return to your career sector on the 20th September that will help him out. This will put the planet of money in a powerful position on the professional front as Pluto turns direct in your income sector and as the Moon moves through from the 28th September to the 30th September.
After last month's dramatic developments, with both a lunar eclipse on the income front and a total solar eclipse on the financial front, things are only slightly less intense this month. Without the intensity of the eclipses, you won't have the dramatic swings, with both income and money matters settling down. The Moon will move through your income sector from the 3rd September to the 5th September, with the potential for some developments. This will not only see the Moon come full circle from last month's lunar eclipse. With Jupiter in his last full month in your career sector and support for both the final weeks and the follow up starting to arrive, income potential has plenty of professional momentum to hitch onto. The Moon's return to your income sector on the 30th September will be its last and the last chance to tap into your nose for money, before Jupiter leaves your career sector. However, in terms of planetary might, the power is on money matters as a whole. The Sun has left your financial sector a day after last month's total solar eclipse but Mars stayed on, Venus returned three days later and even Mercury will retrograde back in from the 1st September to the 10th September, for a short double dip visit. In retrograde motion until the 5th September, Mercury returns with a chance to revise your financial game plan and resolutions, knowing what you know now. Mars will continue to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit until leaving on the 5th September and Venus will stay on until the 20th September. It is during Venus' final days the Moon will come full circle from last month's total solar eclipse, from the 16th September to the 18th September. This time Venus, planet of money is on hand to help exploit the Moon's valuable clues, hunches and insights.
That the focus is on money matters at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your financial sector. This year's annual update was always going to be a lot more important, due to the fact that this is the first planetary push since Jupiter left last September and since the North Node left in May. Just as well then that the Sun has brought plenty of man power along with him. August ended with the Sun and Mercury here, but with the Sun looking ahead and Mercury looking back. In retrograde motion since before the Sun returned, this will see Mercury retrograded back out on the 1st September, only to return on the 10th September, this time in direct motion. It is during Mercury's absence that a lot happens, including Mars' return to your financial sector on the 5th September and a Full Moon in your income sector on the 6th September. Falling during Mars' first full day, the warrior planet of the cosmos will quickly turn this into motivation on both sides. Mars is here until later next month, so will already be firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit when Mercury returns on the 10th September and when Venus returns on the 20th September. With the Sun not leaving until the 23rd September and Mercury until the 30th September, every planet that is going to visit your financial sector this year will be here for a New Moon on the 20th September, just hours after Venus' return. With such an impressive line up of money gods, this will be the perfect time to draw a new line in the sand and to commit to new financial quests.
While the ongoing balance between income and money matters continues, the main focus is on money matters as a whole this month. With Jupiter in his last full month in your financial sector, this is the push to make his 13 month visit count, but also to bulldoze a path for future financial growth to follow. Jupiter will leave on the 11th October, but with the Sun returning on the 23rd September and Mercury on the 30th September, he won't spend his final weeks on his own. This means there will be backup, with the Sun and Mercury continuing Jupiter's quest, until Venus and Mars return later next month. With Mars not leaving until December, this might be the final push to get money matters moving, but things still have months to run. Jupiter has two obstacles this month, but they are familiar hurdles and a final chance to get you motivated. They are during Jupiter's opposition with Eris, in retrograde motion in your income sector from the 6th September to the 12th September and opposition with Uranus, also in retrograde motion in your income sector from the 26th September to the 1st October. In both cases this is for the third time since Jupiter arrived and without the crowd of planets in your income sector, this is more evenly matched. In the case of Jupiter's opposition with Uranus at the end of the month, this will be for the last time here in our lifetime. With both planets in your income sector in retrograde motion for the rest of the year and Jupiter leaving your financial sector early next month, both sides need the wakeup calls.
