The Moon's return to your income sector is always a highlight of any month, returning with a nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction. However this month this is even more important, not despite the fact that the Moon will return for a very ordinary visit on Monday, but because it does. It is the very ordinariness of this visit that makes it so important. For the first time in five months the Moon returns to find no planets. By the time the Moon returns on Monday Venus had left just 12 days earlier. It won't take much to take into account not only her lucrative sense of direction, but also all the untapped potential. The Moon has been a witness to a parade of planets that have passed through over the last five months, returning with insight from all of them. This is when you're able to finalise income matters and a lucrative sense of direction, trusting that the professional gods will keep the momentum going.
Venus, planet of money is the last planet to move through your income sector this year and she is having a very good week. Even if this doesn't trigger any actual income developments, this will boost your confidence and sharpen your lucrative sense of direction. There is likely to be a sense of confidence in the air from the get go, not just on the income front but on the job front as well. For the first time in 12 years Venus, moving through your income sector will align with Jupiter, in retrograde motion in your work sector on Wednesday. This comes just a day after Venus moves into her final two weeks. However it's the Moon's return to your income sector on Wednesday, just as Venus and Jupiter's alignment peaks that will see a nose for money kick in as support between income and job forces peaked. After last week's telling visit to your career sector, the Moon's intuitive edge allows you to read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts.
If money matters had their turn with a Full Moon in your financial sector still running its course in the early days of last week, then it is back onto income matters this week. Fortunately this comes at a time when there is no longer pressure between income and money matters and any financial tension has dropped back. Especially if this has made you more mindful of a need for balance between money coming in and money going out. With Mars leaving your income sector on Friday and the Sun over the weekend, this should be the point where all planetary activity on the income front runs its course for the year. That is not the case, for with Venus late to arrive it will be August that is the most potentially lucrative month. However Mars will be working to inflict as much damage to as many glass ceilings as possible, especially those in your own mind.
The Moon's visit to your financial sector last week not only gave you an intuitive read on money matters, but a sense that something fateful was developing across the income and financial fronts. This week the focus is firmly on income matters and in a game changing way. With Mercury in your income sector since earlier in the month you already have the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. However the real income opportunities will start opening up from Mars' return on Friday and the Sun's on Sunday. This is where the Moon's timing comes in. The Moon will return on Sunday, just hours behind the Sun and in the process will align, creating the first of two New Moons here over the next month. What starts on this New Moon will conclude on next month's New Moon. And with next month's New Moon a total solar eclipse, something fateful is developing.
The Moon left your financial sector over the weekend, but a positive and even healing quality hangs over money matters in the early part of the week. With the Moon returning to your income sector next Tuesday and Mercury next Wednesday, the focus will not only shift more to income matters next week, but in a fairly dramatic way. That is a good thing and is extremely good news on the income front. But until then this buys money matters as a whole, one last week where they have the full attention of the money gods and the timing couldn't be better. If you could ask both planets in your financial sector how long they needed your undivided attention for, they would say until the Sun and Mars return to Leo. For until then, in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart they are both fuelling your financial confidence and imagination. That happens on Sunday, just two days before income matters get their turn.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector can be a mixed blessing or at least it has been since Jupiter returned to your income sector last September. Fortunately any financial tension that an opposition with Jupiter would have come to a head over the weekend. With so much support on both fronts, this will have already turned into opposition. In the meantime this allows you to start the week with your financial instincts sharp from the get go. That's important, for with Eris turning retrograde in your financial sector on Thursday, this comes just as the doors are getting ready to open to the past, second chances and untapped financial potential. This won't get in the way of income matters, who are in their own lane and own zone. An alignment between Venus in your career sector and Jupiter in your income sector on Wednesday creates an auspicious week on both fronts.
The one thing you have, as you start lining up for major income developments ahead is time. Time to get your professional ducks in a row and this week, time to tie up any loose ends on the financial front. By the time the Moon returns to your financial sector on Monday Venus has been gone for 12 days. This not only brought Venus' own month long visit to a close, but five months of planetary activity. Over the last five months the Moon has returned every four weeks, sharpening the financial instincts needed to connect you with forces behind the scenes. Yet at the same time the Moon was a silent witness to all that has unfolded over the last few days. As the Moon returns on Wednesday to find all planetary activity for the year over. But having witnessed everything that has transpired, the Moon gives you the valuable clues, hunches and insights needed to now tie up loose ends.
After Ceres' departure from your financial sector last Monday Venus has been left on her own and it will stay that way until she leaves, in two weeks from Tuesday. However Venus isn't quite on her own, with plenty of support for the financial confidence, desires and expectations she is fuelling. And ironically it both kicks in on the same day, something that could be more than a coincidence. It is on Wednesday that Venus' alignment with lucky Jupiter peaks. This is an alignment that will see your financial confidence and imagination peak. How timely then that the Moon should also return to your financial sector, ensure your financial instincts are sharp and you have access to this. This should be a massive boost in financial confidence, not to mention an empowering time financially.
Last week began with a lot of focus on income matters. Not only was the weekend's Full Moon in your income sector still playing out, but a standoff with financial forces keep the pressure and the momentum going. Income matters do have the upper hand, in that there is continuous planetary activity here until 2024. With Mercury not returning to your work sector until next week and anything triggered by a Full Moon often taking four weeks to run its course, you can afford to shift the focus to money matters this week. Income matters may try and protest, but there is little urgency there, with plenty of time and support to let things play out. With Mars leaving your financial sector on Friday and the Sun on Sunday, this brings a need to keep the focus on your financial situation and money matters as a whole. The Sun will continue to keep the solar spotlight on money matters until he leaves, while Mars will continue to fuel your financial passions and fighting spirit.
Chances are you will find it hard to shake the nose for money and lucrative sense of direction the Moon's visit to your income sector left you with. This is despite the fact that with Mercury in your financial sector, this is where the main focus is. This will remain the case even after more and more resources are poured into your financial situation and money matters. Yet where the Moon's visit to your income sector last week was a practice run ahead of next month's lunar eclipse, its return to your financial sector on Sunday is a practice run ahead of next month's total solar eclipse. This time, returning just two days after Mars' return to your financial sector on Friday and just hours behind the Sun's return, this will create a New Moon. This is the first of two New Moons here, with the second next month a total solar eclipse. With major new beginnings ahead, the Sun and Mars return to play their part.
The Moon may have left your income sector over the weekend, but its nose for money and lucrative sense of direction lives on in an alignment between income and work forces. A three day alignment between Chiron in your income sector and Mars in your work sector will start on Monday and end on Wednesday. If that doesn't keep a nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction alive nothing will, especially as it is a case of 'use it or lose it'. The Sun will make the same alignment on Friday and Saturday, during his final days in your work sector. With Mars leaving your work sector on Friday and the Sun on Saturday, this is a chance in their final days to cement a partnership between income and job matters. As new doors open on the job front this gives you access to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
The Moon might leave your income sector on Monday, but starting the week with a nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go is a bell that can't be unrung. And the timing couldn't be better. For by the time the Moon leaves on Monday, Eris is just two days away from turning retrograde. This will ensure your nose for money is sharp as the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. More importantly this will ensure you have a lucrative sense of direction from the moment Mars returns to your work sector on Friday and the Sun on Sunday. It is a New Moon on Sunday, just as Eris is in his first weekend in retrograde motion in your income sector that brings the two together. As new doors open on the job front, the doors are opening to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
