There is a complete shift in not only the dynamics of this financial year this month, but for several years to come. Since Jupiter's return to your financial sector in October 2017, the money gods main focus has been on your financial situation and money matters as a whole. That remained the case until the last planet left late last month. With the Moon having moved through just days later, by the time you move into February even loose ends have been tied off. The only remaining planet in either of your two money houses is Juno, now in her final days in your income sector.
On face value, this has seen the money gods shift all their focus onto income matters, but as a small player that is about to leave, this suggests a very low key focus. It is the timing of the Moon's monthly visit that will ensure there is only literally a few hours before things take off again and in a powerful new way. Juno will leave on 11th February, wrapping up a visit that began in July 2018. As the queen of commitment, this was a chance to hold onto a sense of resolve on the income front, while the main focus was on money matters.
The Moon will return to your income sector on 11th February, just hours before Juno leaves, ensuring there is no drop off. This is also a chance to sharpen your nose for money and hold onto all the information gained over the past seven months. The Moon will leave on 13th February, just a day before Mars returns on 14th February. This will give you a few hours to stand back, before things pick up again in a dramatic way. While Mars is only here for six weeks, during that time Uranus will return to begin a seven year journey, one that will tie in with strong developments on the career front.
There is a change in dynamics on the financial front this month, not in terms of where the focus is or the fact that this is still a major year for financial growth, but in terms of the approach. Since lucky Jupiter's return to your financial sector in November, planets have come and gone, all contributing what they could to ensuring you have the resources needed to take your financial power back. Since then the Sun has been and gone and Mercury has spent nearly two months rather than the two weeks he normally spends here, ensuring you have the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game.
It was Venus' return last month that allowed the planet of money to get involved, with her contribution being to fuel your financial confidence and trigger the laws of attraction and synchronicity. Venus is still here as we move into February, finally leaving on 4th February. This is the point where Jupiter should be on his own until later in the year and it becomes more about the journey. This is the point where it does become more about the journey, but Jupiter is not on this own.
It was late last month that Ceres returned to your financial sector, for the first time in four years. Normally here for around three months, Ceres is charged with looking beyond the money, focused more on your financial needs and priorities and even on redefining your definition of financial success. To have Ceres spend nearly three months with Jupiter gives you time to reassess your priorities, now that you have the planet of luck and expansion on board. However, Ceres will turn retrograde in April, within days of Jupiter's own retrograde turn and they will remain a team until November. The journey properly begins when Venus leaves, but it is a journey where you can reinvent your priorities as you go.
The power is still on the financial side of the fence, with income matters not getting their turn until Mars returns to your income sector late next month. Yet considering the fact that the Sun doesn't return until late May each year, this is much sooner than you would normally have to wait. This will also give the new career developments that start to take hold this month to gain a foothold first. Until then, the Moon's visit to your income sector from 16th February to 18th February is the best chance to get a read on income matters and to check in with a lucrative sense of direction. Because there is no planetary activity, the Moon can act as a trigger.
The Sun and Mercury both left your financial sector last month, taking the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters, as is the case at this time every year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your financial sector, with a chance to take care of housekeeping and reassessing your financial options. Mercury was the last to leave, leaving you with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. With Pluto, Saturn and the South Node in your financial sector all year, this has brought a chance to pull back and focus on the big picture.
However, held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus has yet to return to have any influence on money matters. You have had a chance to look at money matters objectively, get your head in the game, create a financial game plan and resolutions, but not to ask what you want. Venus returns on 4th February and won't leave until early next month, spending the rest of this month fuelling your financial confidence, updating your desires and expectations and triggering the laws of attraction.
The focus is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the majority of the first three weeks of February in your financial sector. Compared to the last two years and even the Sun's first 24 hours in your financial sector, this is a low key annual update. The lunar nodes were in your two money houses from May 2017 to November 2018, with the North Node in your income sector and the South Node in your financial sector. As well as creating a series of eclipses throughout that time the lunar nodes, which are always in opposition, were charged with maintaining a balance between money coming in and money going out.
The lunar nodes left in November, just a week before Mars wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your financial sector, something that exacerbated the tension between income and money matters. When the Sun returned to your financial sector last month, the North Node was no longer in your income sector, so this should have been a trouble free return. Instead, the Moon not only returned during the Sun's first 24 hours in your financial sector, but returned as a total lunar eclipse. This was the last clash between income and money matters and with so much untapped potential on both sides, while this may have created some financial tension, on the other side, things should flow more freely.
There will be no more eclipses here for another seven years and with only the Sun, Mercury and Venus visiting your financial sector this year, this is the very minimum of planetary activity. The money gods are done rocking the boat, with a chance to gain some stability. Until Mercury leaves on 10th February, you have the smart head for money needed to keep your money gods and return to the more mundane job of making the financial game plan and resolutions you make at this time every year. There is no longer a need to reinvent the wheel. The Sun will leave on 19th February, with Venus returning to attract as much untapped potential next month as possible.
You have an advantage from the get go this year, one that you continue to benefit from. That advantage was that while you moved into the New Year with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos in your financial sector, he left on New Year's Day. This allowed you to begin the year with your financial passions and fighting spirit fuelled from the get go, while allowing you to draw and run on the momentum already gained. Mars is a planet that needs constant action, with no time to rest to let things play out. His departure took any urgency, while leaving you with plenty of momentum.
This also gave money matters a head start, with a lot of momentum already created, when in most years it is not until the Sun returns in February that there is too much focus. With Chiron here since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, money matters never go entirely off the boil, but as both only turned direct late last year, they are never in a hurry at this time of year. The Sun will return on 19th February, turning the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters, as it does at this time every year. Yet Mercury's return on 10th February gives you a head start, with a chance to get your head in the game first.
Mercury will normally move through in just two weeks, just long enough to get your head in the game, update your financial game plan and resolutions. Instead, a retrograde turn next month will keep Mercury here for over two months, giving you a lot more time to work with this smart and intellectually savvy planet. A Full Moon in your income sector on 20th February will see the Moon clash with the Sun in his first full day in your financial sector and this might create some financial tension. However, this is the kind of pressure that can bring income and money matters to fruition or to a head, a turning and/or tipping point.
There has been a real push to take your financial power back since Mars returned to your financial sector on New Year's Day and that will continue until the warrior planet of the cosmos leaves on 14th February. This is always the case for Mars, who was last here in 2017 and who won't return until 2021, after he leaves. Mars is a planet that barrels through, fires up your financial passions and fighting spirit and then leaves you to continue what he started. This will always be the case, making this one of Mars' most important visits ever.
In 2010 Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned to bring a whole new truth to the way you relate to money matters. Uranus is a planet that can trigger eureka or unexpected moments, those out of the blue ideas or happenings that can change the way you look at money matters. When Mars returns you have that influence combined with Mars financial passions and fighting spirit, giving you the courage to run with what Uranus might trigger. Mars and Uranus have come together every other year since his return in 2010.
However, Uranus will leave on 6th March and won't return for another eight decades, with his alignment with Mars here on 13th/14th February most likely the last in our lifetime or the last when we will be too worried about money matters. The first two weeks of February are massively important for taking your financial power back. It doesn't even matter if you don't know the 'when, where and how', for with the Sun returning next month your annual financial update, which always begins in March, can take care of the 'when, where and how'. The Moon will move through from 9th February to 11th February, aligning with both Mars and Uranus, with your financial instincts and imagination able to pick up clear messages from both.
There is a shift in power on the financial front this month, one that puts you in a win/win situation. Until Ceres left your income sector late last month, bringing 15 months of continuous planetary activity to a close, the money gods main focus has been on income matters or on money coming in. This included the 13 months spent here, from October 2017 to November 2018 and the nearly four months Venus, the planet of money spent here. The last planet only left on 26th January and with the Moon having moved through in the days immediately after that, this is something that has only just wrapped up.
The money gods are now turning their full attention onto money matters and while the asteroid Juno has been in your financial sector since July, she a minnow compared to the planetary activity in your income sector. Yet as the only planet in either of your two money houses, she is able to start steering your focus towards money matters. Juno will leave on 11th February, but the Moon's return just a few hours before she leaves will ensure your financial instincts and imagination are fuelled as you process the sense of resolve she will leave you with.
The Moon will leave on 13th February, ensuring your financial instincts are sharp as Mars returns on 14th February. This is when the minnow is swapped out for a big fish, with Uranus' return early next month, the whale who will dominate money matters for the next seven years. Now I said this was a win/win situation and so far it looks like only money matters are getting any attention. That is the case when it comes to attention from the money gods, but all the momentum and untapped income potential gained over the last 16 months is now in the safe hands of the professional gods, with support from forces on the job and career fronts already locked into place.
While the Sun will always leave your income sector just before Christmas, Mercury can still be here in January and once every eight years Venus will still be here as you move into February, but just for the first few days. If there is still planetary activity on the income front as you move into February, it is because things are still wrapping up or there is something extraordinary happening that means things won't go off the boil. This year it is both, with continuous planetary activity throughout the whole of 2019. The last time you moved into February with Venus still here was in 2011 and eight years on, like clockwork she is still here this year.
The only way Venus can still be in your income sector moving into February is because she has been held back by a retrograde phase and will always leave in the early days of the month. In this case, she leaves on 4th February, leaving behind Ceres and Jupiter, who will continue to work as a team throughout the coming year. Ceres will leave in November, but not before Venus comes full circle, with all three coming together again when it is time to bring home what has the potential to be a lucrative year. In her final days, Venus is still fuelling your confidence, triggering the laws of attraction and working to steer things in a lucrative direction.
While Venus is wrapping up her visit to your income sector Mars and Uranus are both wrapping up their visits to your work sector. Mars will wrap up his six week visit on 14th February, while Uranus will wrap up an over eight year visit early next month. Last month saw some strong alignments between forces on the income and job fronts. So much so that they are now joined at the hip, with income and job growth and potential going hand in hand.
The Sun and Mercury both left your income sector last month, but income matters are not yet ready to settle in a more long haul and big picture focus. The Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your income sector, starting the year with the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options from the get go. Mercury left four days behind the Sun, leaving you with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and to continue to make smart choices, decisions and plans.
With Pluto, Saturn and the South Node in your income sector all year, things were never going to go off the boil, but without the faster moving planets moving through the focus is more long term. This has gone back to that focus since the Sun and Mercury left, but in a way that is more about waiting for her return. Venus is the planet of money and especially of earned income and the time she spends here can be some of the most lucrative weeks of any year. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus will finally return on 4th February and will stay here until early next month.
Venus may be late arriving, but her timing is spot on. For it is just 10 days after Venus' return that Mars will return to your work sector on 14th February, giving this professional year its first real momentum. With Uranus returning to begin a seven year visit early next month, Venus and Mars are players that can help to weave a connection between income and job forces, one that will hold strong for the year. You had a taste of this last year, but this time this is no practice run. This has Venus returning to kick off some of the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year, just as things start to move on the job front.
The focus will always be on income matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the majority of the first three weeks of February in your income sector. This is the point in any year when the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options. This year we have the bare minimum of planetary activity possible, with just the Sun, Mercury and Venus visiting this year. As they return every year and always around the same time, this is the lowest amount of planetary activity possible. However, you are not being short changed and you wouldn't want it any other way.
Mars only wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your income sector in November, just a week after the lunar nodes wrapped up their 18 month transit through your two money houses. The lunar nodes are always in opposition and as well as creating eclipses, they work to maintain balance. In your case, this has been the balance between the North Node in your financial sector and the South Node in your income sector, with pressure between the two maintaining a balance between money coming in and money going out.
It wasn't until they all left in November that you may have realised how much financial tension or pressure there had been. There was a false alarm when the Sun returned to your income sector last month, with the total lunar eclipse in your financial sector during the first 24 hours. This was the final eclipse and this marked the end of all tension between income and money matters. What you have is a huge amount of momentum and untapped income potential, which you can access in a low key way. Mercury will leave on 10th February and the Sun on 19th February. However, it is Venus' return early next month that will see the planet of money head straight for the untapped income potential.
The Sun will always return to your income sector in February, and his return on 19th February is something that happens at this time every year. This is when the solar spotlight shifts onto your income situation, matters and options for the coming month. This year you already have a head start and I am not talking Mercury's return on 10th February, though that is an advantage. You began the year with Mars in your income sector, but having left on New Year's Day this saw the urgency drop back. Mars was part of a team of forces that had fired things up across the income, work and career fronts late last month and into the early days of 2019.
This has scaled back, with no more planetary activity in your career sector and the North Node quietly keeping the momentum going on the job front. When Mars left your income sector on New Year things didn't go completely off the boil, with Neptune and Chiron here to keep the wheels turning. Mercury's return on 10th February is a chance to get your head back in the game and to start getting serious about the untapped income potential and momentum Mars has created. Mercury will return in time to witness Chiron's final days, with the planet of healing finally wrapping up a visit that began in 2010 on 18th February.
This is a day before the Sun returns, ending a period of focus on the doubts, fears and old ghosts that hold you back from fully believing in what you deserve. This will leave dreamy Neptune on her own until she leaves in 2026 and apart from these active points in the year it will become more about chasing the dream. Mercury should only be here for two weeks, but a retrograde phase will keep him here for over two months. That will give Venus time to catch up, when she finally returns later next month. In the meantime, a Full Moon in your financial sector on 20th February might create some financial tension, but this is the push that both income and money matters need.
To have Venus, the planet of money in your career sector as you move into February is an advantage only experience once every eight years and always after a retrograde phase has held her back. While Venus moves through wearing her professional hat, as the planet of money she is charged with fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. For the first time in 30 years, Mars is in your income sector as Venus moves through your career sector and this is a match made in heaven.
It was their alignment last month that helped forge a relationship between income and career forces that will continue long after Venus leaves your career sector on 4th February and Mars leaves your income sector on 14th February. With Jupiter in your career sector until December and ongoing planetary activity in your income sector for years to come, this has forged a partnership that will stand the test of the time. Uranus is also spending his last full month in your income sector, but with Chiron returning to begin an eight year visit on 18th February, the money gods are not letting income matters go off the boil.
It is during the first two weeks of February that Mars will be firing up your passion and fighting spirit, giving you the confidence to fight for what you deserve. A total lunar eclipse in your work sector late last month has already energised things across the income, work and career fronts, something that continues to play out this month. The Moon's visit to your income sector from 9th February to 11th February will ensure your nose for money is sharp during Mars' final days. With all the focus on income matters, money matters will get their turn when the Moon moves through your financial sector from 22nd February to 24th February.
