The financial focus remains the same, in that there are still planets in both your income and financial sectors as you move into the new month, but on one front the players have changed. Uranus, still in the early months of a seven year visit to your income sector, has been in retrograde motion since August and won't turn direct until January. This makes Uranus a constant force and while he is slowing down ahead of his direct turn, as the planets begin returning to your career sector, this increases both your income confidence and potential. While it might not be until Uranus turns direct in the New Year that the money starts to flow, this gives you time to first get your professional ducks in a row.
This also gives you a chance to make the final month of 2019 more about taking your financial power back for it is here that the dynamics are changing. It was just before the Sun left your financial sector last month, taking the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters that Mars returned for the first time in two years. Unlike the Sun, who simply turns the lights on and makes things more transparent, especially when it comes to what you do with and how you manage the money you have, Mars is a planet of action. Mars returned to find Mercury in retrograde motion here but now in direct motion, they begin the month together, ready to make things happen.
Mercury will leave your financial sector on 9th December, but not before spending over two months giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. This is compared to the 14 to 15 days Mercury will normally spend here. It is from 9th December that Mars is on his own and until leaving on 3rd January, will spend the rest of the year fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit, in an effort to see you take your financial power back. Knowing that income matters will come back on line with Uranus' direct turn in your income sector in January, Mars is getting in first with a chance to take your overall financial power back.
There is both the end of an era and the beginning of a phase to capitalise on that era this month with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion finally leaving your financial sector in the early days of the month. Jupiter returned in November 2018 to create the potential for financial growth and expansion and while this may have amplified the good, the bad and ugly, it was so that with everything out in the open you could clear the way for ongoing financial growth. You begin the month with Jupiter in his final days here and the Sun, as he always does during the early days of December, shining the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters.
Unlike your income sector, where the focus is on money coming in, here the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, with Jupiter's 13 month visit a chance to take your financial power back. By 3rd December Jupiter will be gone and the Sun will be on his own, bringing your first chance all year to bring things down from the big picture and onto a more mundane and 'here and now' focus on money matters. The Sun shines the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters at this time every year and until Mercury returns on 9th December, there is a chance to do just that. Mercury is here from 9th December to 29th December, giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game.
With the Sun leaving on 22nd December, Mercury will stay on to help you work on your financial game plan and resolutions for the New Year. It is while the Sun and Mercury are here that a Full Moon in your income sector on 12th December will challenge both. However, while this could create some financial tension at the time, with no planetary activity on the income front, this is more the push that can exploit any last income potential this year might hold. The Moon is here a day before and after the Full Moon, sharpening your nose for money and making these some of the most potentially lucrative days of the month.
With Pluto in your financial sector since 2008, Saturn since December 2017 and the Sun always returning to your financial sector in December, it is a given that there will be a lot of focus on money matters this month. However, even by these standards, the money gods are still about to surprise you. Unlike your income sector, where the North Node is keeping things on a lucrative path and is on constant alert to new income potential, your financial sector is more focused on your financial situation and money matters as a whole, in terms of what you do with and how you manage the money you have. These are the two sides of the financial fence and in addition to the planets in your financial sector, the lunar nodes are helping to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out.
It is on the financial front that that the planetary activity is located, with Venus' return late last month bringing the planet of money into the game. Venus is less focused on the practical aspect of money matters, having returned instead to fuel your financial confidence and to update your financial wish list. Yet what turns everything until now into a practice run or preparation is lucky Jupiter's return to your financial sector, kicking off your most expansive year for money matters and your most powerful year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade. What makes this even more powerful, is that you have been preparing for this since Pluto's return in 2008.
Jupiter will be here by 3rd December, making the first 48 hours of the month a chance to get your bearings. With the Sun returning on 20th December and Mercury on 29th December, the planetary focus will continue to increase. It is over Christmas that the Moon will not only return to your financial sector but to create an eclipsing New Moon on 26h December that can give everything the green light. While the balance of power might appear to be on the financial side of the fence, the North Node is working with some exciting planetary activity on the job and career frons that is giving you access to its income potential. This will also be balanced by a lunar eclipse on the income front next month.
The Sun's return to your financial sector in January always begins your annual month long financial review, putting the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters. Venus' return on 20th December is a chance to not only get a head start but in a way that is less about the housekeeping the Sun will focus on and more on ways that money matters can work for you. Unlike your income sector, where the focus is on earned income or money coming in, literally 'in coming' money, your financial sector is focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. With Saturn returning in March 2020 and Jupiter in December 2020, there are major opportunities coming up to take your financial power back.
Venus will have been and gone by the time the Sun returns and there is a need to take an objective approach to money matters, with her visit more a chance to focus on what you want and on updating your financial desires and expectations. If you know what you want then when the time comes to do the work, you will have something to start with. As Venus will spend the final 11 days of 2019 and the first two weeks of 2020 in your financial sector, this means the focus will be more on moving into the New Year with a financial wish list than a list of financial resolutions. That can come later. The Moon will visit your financial sector from 1st December to 3rd December and will return again on 28th December, allowing you to begin and end the month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled.
Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity on the income front, income matters and potential will benefit from the momentum building on the job front. While Jupiter will be gone from your work sector by 3rd January, his legacy will live on, with Mars due to extend the potential on the job front all the way through to the end of February. Venus, the planet of money only left your work sector in the final days of November and not before steering things in a lucrative direction. The Moon's last visit to your income sector for the year could make the period from 15th December to 17th December the most potentially lucrative days of the month.
This is not a particularly active point of any year on either the income or financial fronts, but both sides of the financial fence have what they need this month. As dreamy Neptune spends his first full month in direct motion in your financial sector, he is looking rather than moving towards the future. After being in retrograde motion since June, Neptune only finished visiting old financial dreams when he turned direct in the closing hours of November. At the start of December, Neptune has only been in direct motion for less than hours. With Venus returning to your financial sector in January and more activity in the early months of 2020, when it comes to money matters as a whole, this is more a chance to look to the future with confidence.
As dreamy Neptune is the only planet in your financial sector, the money house that focuses more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, his focus will be on moving into the New Year with a financial wish list, rather than a list of financial resolutions. The Moon will visit your financial sector from 3rd December to 6th December, with this first visit since Neptune's direct turn your first chance in six months to use your financial instincts and imagination to look to the future rather than the past. The Moon will return on New Year's Eve, allowing you to move into the New Year with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled, which is another reason for having a financial wish list.
In the meantime, while the last planet left your income sector last month, months of planetary activity has not only created a lot of momentum and untapped potential but has left you with all the resources you need. It is as things start to move on the job front this month, which they will in a major and game changing way, that there is income potential for the get go. As each planet moved through your income sector over recent months they formed a friendly aspect to the planets already in your work and career sectors, something that can now begin to pay off. There could be evidence of this when the Moon moves through your income sector from 17th December to 19th December.
There is something balanced about the planetary activity in your two money houses this month and not just in terms of the amount of activity on each front. There is a lot of major planetary activity this month, with the most powerful planets in the solar system active and making their presence felt. The fact that the planets in both your money houses are considered minor influences and in both cases aren't technically planets at all, gives you an advantage. Astrologically, everything that moves in the heavens is a planet, coming from the ancient Greek word for 'wanderer'. Astrologically, if it moves it is a planet and that includes everything from the largest planets in the solar system to the smallest asteroids.
It is in the lower end of that scale that you have the dwarf planet Eris and the asteroid and Chiron, classified as both a comet and a minor planet. In your income sector, you have the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and together these are the forces that are keeping income and money matters on track. The fact that they are minor players means that they aren't going to demand too much attention and there will be no push back from planets that do want your attention. It wasn't always that way and it wasn't until Mars left your income sector last month that you reached this state of equilibrium. You now have the right balance and lack of urgency on both sides of the financial fence.
Mars has left you with plenty of momentum on the income front with Juno, queen of commitment able to keep things on track. However, income potential will get a boost with Venus, the planet of money's return to your work sector on 20th December and especially as the Moon will be in your income sector at the time, making its last visit for the year. This means your nose for money will be sharp as Venus returns to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. With Venus here for the rest of this year and during the first two weeks of 2020, this bodes well for income and job matters.
When the Sun left your income sector last month, this should have brought all planetary activity for the year to a close. Instead, Mercury's retrograde turn last month means that he is still here, while Mars has returned for his first visit in two years and is here now, for the rest of the year. The exploration of income potential is definitely into bonus time, with Mercury having returned in early September for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit, aimed at giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and around income options. Instead, two months on Mercury is still here and will be until leaving on 9th December.
Mars, who returned just three days before the Sun left last month won't leave your income sector until 3rd January, spending the rest of the year and more importantly will begin the New Year here. Mars was the last planet to arrive and he will be the last to leave, with the warrior planet of the cosmos able to capitalise on what the planets that have come and gone before him has triggered, in order to exploit the potential. One of those planets was Venus, with the planet of money having left earlier last month, but not before setting things in motion. Mars is the warrior planet of the cosmos and here he is directed into fighting for what you deserve and to exploiting the potential created over recent months.
Where the Sun would normally leave off, Mars is just getting started. Fortunately you have the North Node, the force behind next month's lunar eclipse in your career sector and Neptune, in his first full month in direct motion in your work sector. Mars will form friendly aspects to both, creating the potential for a good end to the year across the income, work and career fronts. Once Mars leaves in the New Year there will be no more planetary activity here until the latter part of 2020, so he will be working to not only exploit this year's potential but towards putting next year on a lucrative path from the get go. The days leading up to Christmas could be potentially lucrative.
Moving into the new month is as much about the planets in your income sector as it is about the planets that are no longer there and more specifically Venus, the planet of money. Venus left your income sector in the final days of November, wrapping up her second visit this year and as the only planet to connect with Jupiter twice this year, this made her an important player. Venus returned in the early days of the New Year when Jupiter was still in his early months here and just starting to expand your income potential. Venus was instrumental in setting the desires and expectations that put this financial year off on the right course. When Venus returned in early November, it was to help bring things home.
Once again it was the desires and expectations that Venus left you with that are helping to define not only Jupiter's final days here but the real exploitation of the potential that hasn't even begun to be explored yet. Jupiter will be gone by 3rd December, having spent 13 months creating the potential for not only income growth now but ongoing potential for years to come. Often the real gifts that Jupiter brings appear as he is leaving or after he is gone. With the Sun here until 22nd December, Mercury not even returning with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game until 9th December and Mars in the New Year, in the early part of the month you are still defining what's possible.
It is that gap between Jupiter's departure and Mercury's return that gives you a chance to regroup, as you adjust from the big picture focus of the previous 13 months to the job of now reaping the potential. The most potentially lucrative time will be when Mars' returns in the New Moon, for as the last planet here and the most aggressive, it will be his job to make things happen, which he will do throughout January and February. Meanwhile, the only challenge that the Sun and Mercury will face this month is from a Full Moon in your financial sector on 12th December. This is the clash between income and money matters that happens at around this time every year and in a way that brings things back to normality.
To begin with, December starts out as a good month for income matters and potential but within days will turn into an extraordinary month and it will stay that way for the next 12 months. What makes this a good month from the get go is that you begin the month with Venus, the planet of money in your income sector. This is Venus' second visit this year and as she won't return at all in 2020, this is her chance to both exploit this year's income potential and to steer next year in a lucrative direction before it even begins, all before she leaves on 20th December. However, what turns a good month for income potential into an extraordinary month, is lucky Jupiter's game changing return.
By the time you reach 3rd December, the whole dynamics of this financial year and in fact your financial reality will have changed. In itself, while Jupiter's return is a game changer, kicking off your most potentially lucrative year in over a decade, as the planet of luck and expansion returns once every 12 years it is far from a once in a life time event. Yet this is exactly what this is, not because of Jupiter's return but because of what he returns to. When Pluto returned to your income sector in 2008 it what right in the middle of Jupiter's last visit and he has been here ever since, before being joined by Saturn in 2017.
This is the first time in our lifetime that Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will meet up in your income sector, bringing the planets of luck, change and the planet that gives you the power to move mountains together. By the time the Sun returns on 22nd December to turn the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options, as he does at this time every year, everything will change. It is only fitting then that the New Moon here on 26th December is no ordinary New Moon but a solar eclipse, giving this lucrative year the kind of send off it deserves. It is Mercury's return on 29th December that will ensure you end 2019 and begin 2020 with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game.
It is business as usual on both sides of the financial fence as you move into the final month of the year, as you would expect. With the Sun always returning to your income sector in January, it is not until the New Year that there is usually a chance to look at new income options. With all planetary activity in your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have over for several months now, there should not be a lot of focus on either side of the financial front this month. And to start with that is the case, with just the Moon's monthly visits bringing a chance to check in.
The Moon will return to your income sector in the very early hours of the month and until leaving on 3rd December, will sharpen your nose for money and give you a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. It is two weeks later that the Moon will make its last visit to your financial sector for the year, from 15th December to 17th December. Apart from fuelling your financial instincts and imagination, this will be a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping. Even after both these visits there will be nothing to suggest the money gods have any more wildcards up their sleeve.
However, the money gods not only do have another wildcard up their sleeve they have been saving the best for last with Venus, the planet of money's return to your income sector on 20th December. Returning this late in the year means that Venus will spend the rest of 2019 and the first two weeks of 2020 here, ending one financial year and starting the next under some of the most potentially lucrative conditions of any year. The Moon will return for its last visit to your income sector for the year on 28th December and while it will be gone by the time you move into the New Year, it will ensure you end this year with a sharp nose for money and with the planet of money on board.
While things might be quiet on the income front this month, it is the quiet that comes from things just starting to wake up rather than from things going off the boil. It was only in the final 48 hours of November that dreamy Neptune wrapped up a five month retrograde phase in your income sector and as we move into December, income matters have only just come out of hibernation. The Moon's visit to your income sector from 3rd December to 5th December will be your first chance to check in since the tide turned and the lights turned green. This is also a chance to sharpen your nose for money in the early days of the month.
For while income matters are just waking up after being in hibernation for five months, things are just now coming together professionally. Mars is not only spending the whole of December in your career sector but along with Mercury, who is here from 9th December to 29th December, is here to bring this professional year home. The Sun's departure last month is the point where any professional year begins to wind down but instead, this is when it caught its second wind, so to start with a better sense of where the money is from the get go will be a win/win on both sides.
Neptune's first full month in direct motion in your income sector will have the support of active forces on the job and career fronts, which he can piggy back off until he can find his own feet. It is Venus, the planet of money's return next month that will come just as Neptune is back to his full power and between them they will return the favour from the professional gods this month. In the meantime, with no planetary activity on the financial front, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, the Moon's last visit to your financial sector for the year is important. From 17th December to 19th December the Moon will fuel your financial instincts and imagination, while bringing a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping.
Mars' departure from your financial sector last month was a win/win that you will get to enjoy the full benefits from this month. Mars returned for his first visit to your financial sector in two years in October and as he always will, he spent nearly seven weeks fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit, as he gave you the motivation and resources to take your financial power back. No planet can move through your financial sector without moving into opposition with planets in your income sector and as Mars was just one in a long line of planets, there has been the potential for financial tension over recent months.
Mars' departure last month took the pressure off both sides of the financial fence while leaving you with your financial power in your own hands. However, it is what Mars left behind that has been the game changer and why this is a win/win. The asteroid Juno returned 15 days before Mars left, so was a witness to his warrior spirit, how he was shaking things up and what he was encouraging you to fight for. As Mars left Juno took the wheel and here now until September 2020, her influence falls right in the Goldilocks zone. As the queen of commitment, Juno is able to keep you committed to Mars' mission to take your financial power back but is too small to pose a threat to the planets in your income sector.
With December a stunning month professionally and in fact the jewel in the crown of this professional year, friendly support between planets on the career and income fronts will see your financial confidence on both sides of the financial fence increase. This makes the Moon's last visits to both your money houses important, in each case bringing a chance to check in. The first will be the Moon's last visit to your income sector for the year, from 6th December to 8th December, this will ensure your nose for money is sharp at a critical point of the month professionally. It is two weeks later that the Moon will make its last visit to your financial sector for the year from 19th December to 21st December, fuelling your financial instincts and imagination at what is often an expensive time of year.
