This week is dominated by an alignment between Mars and Uranus in your income sector, something that last happened here in 1942 so will be an unfamiliar energy. Uranus has been in your income sector since 2018, consistently since March 2019 and is here now until 2026, constantly working to course correct your approach to income matters in order to keep you on track but also to keep things real. Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected but real shifts only come when there is a trigger and usually it is an internal shift in attitude. Mars is not only the warrior planet of the cosmos but held back in Aries for nearly seven months, he is ready to make up for lost time and he is that trigger. Mars is here to help you fight for what you deserve and if he wants to change things up then Uranus is all for it. It is the Moon's return midweek that could be the catalyst, for either unexpected income developments or an internal shift in attitude.
Both sides of the financial fence get a boost this week but in a way that won't upset the status quo and a fine balancing act between money coming in and money going out. This is something that the lunar nodes will police all year so to have had a week where there were favourable conditions on one side of the financial fence but not the other would have upset that balance. Fortunately, that is not the case. It begins with the Moon's return to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart on Monday, where a friendly aspect to the South Node in your financial sector can fuel your financial confidence, instincts and imagination. It is in the second half of the week that the other side of the financial fence will get its turn when Mercury, moving through your career sector forms a friendly aspect to the North Node in your income sector on Thursday and Friday. This makes the first half of the week good for money matters and the second half for income matters.
There is a changing of the guard on the financial front this week but in a way not seen in recent years. The Sun's departure from your financial sector on Wednesday is something that happens at this time every year, taking the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters. Until the Sun leaves it is all about having your eyes open and head out of the sand, focused on the reality checks that will give you an authentic starting point. For the last three years, as the Sun left Saturn would take those reality checks and use them to craft your homework for the coming year. However, Saturn left just before Christmas and won't be back and instead Venus, who didn't visit at all in 2020 is here instead. As the planet of money, Venus has no interest in homework and instead is more focused on turning financial desires into reality. Venus will stay on for another two weeks to help you exploit your financial potential.
The Moon's departure from your financial sector over the weekend would always be an advantage, allowing you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. However, ahead of the Sun's return on Wednesday and having given you a read on the planets already in play, this gives you time to unpack and process the valuable clues, hunches and insights delivered. The Sun will always return to your financial sector at this time each year, turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters. However, while returning to find Mercury here and that you already have the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game is not uncommon, finding Saturn and Jupiter here is. This will turn the solar spotlight onto the planets that have returned to help you take your financial power back and are here for the long haul.
While the Moon will leave your financial sector on Monday, just starting the week here will ensure your financial instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go. This first visit for the year was always going to be a valuable chance to check in but it was the Moon's alignment with Neptune and Ceres over the weekend that has prepared you to take advantage of their alignment this week. Dreamy Neptune and the dwarf planet Ceres have been working as a team since last April to update your financial dreams, needs and priorities ahead of the Sun's return next month and lucky Jupiter's return in May. In all that time they have yet to align yet they do from Tuesday to Friday and thanks to the Moon, your financial instincts are sharp as you take a deep dive into your financial dreams, needs and priorities. This has been nine months in the making and can have a profound impact on the rest of this financial year. To get to the heart of this, there is a need to look beyond the money.
The Moon returns for an ordinary monthly visit to your financial sector on Monday but this couldn't be more significant. As always, the Moon will return to fuel your financial instincts and imagination, bringing a chance to check in and will leave you with valuable clues, hunches and insights to process after it has left. However, this is not just the Moon's first visit for the year but the first since Mars left 11 days earlier. For the first time in seven months, the Moon will return to find that the warrior planet of the cosmos is no longer firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit and there is no longer a sense of urgency. Instead, returning a week after the dwarf planet Eris turned direct here, it will be to find the warrior princess of the cosmos is in charge and instead of hot headed enthusiasm, the approach to money matters is now more about cold headed determination.
Mars' return to your financial sector earlier in the month was always going to be a game changer. Both because as the warrior planet of the cosmos Mars was always going to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and encourage you to fight to take your financial power back but also because he would be teaming up with Uranus for the first time here in eight decades. Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected and while he can bring sudden and unexpected changes, as he is here until 2026 he is playing a long game. Uranus needs a trigger and both the Moon and Mars act as that trigger this week. Mars and Uranus will align on Wednesday and Thursday and just as it is running its course the Moon will return. This will fuel your financial instincts and imagination but also your emotional and passionate responses, adding to the potential for a breakthrough. While this could be from external developments it is more likely to come from within.
Both sides of the financial fence get a boost this week and that will ensure this doesn't upset a balance between money coming in and money going out that the lunar nodes are policing. As good as it might be to have favourable conditions on one side but not the other, it would upset that balance but this week's stars get it just right and that includes balancing the week itself. It is income matters that benefit in the first half of the week, with the Moon forming a friendly aspect to the South Node and the asteroid Juno in your income sector, as it makes its first visit to your work sector for the year. It is in the second half of the week and on Thursday and Friday in particular, that Mercury's friendly aspect to the North Node in your financial sector will create positive conditions on the other side of the financial fence. Here this will be especially favourable for financial matters on the home front.
The Sun's departure from your income sector on Wednesday is something that happens at this time every year, taking the solar spotlight off your income situation, matters and options. The difference this year is what the Sun does and doesn't leave behind. For the first time in four years, the Sun leaves without leaving Saturn to take over, with the hard taskmaster of the cosmos gone but the challenges from the past leaving you with the power to move mountains if you have to. What the Sun does leave behind is Venus, with the planet of money making her first visit to your income sector since 2019. Venus didn't spend any time here in 2020 and staying on for another two weeks after the Sun leaves she will be working to make them as lucrative as possible. Helping Venus to do that is an explosion of potential on the job front this week.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from your income sector over the weekend, you not only start the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go but having already had a chance to start unpacking and processing a download of information. This was the Moon's first visit for the year and with the Sun returning on Wednesday, had this been any other year this would be a huge advantage. While this is an advantage this is not any other year and it was the Moon's alignment with not only Mercury, bringing a nose and a smart head for money together but Jupiter and Saturn that has given you a read on the powerful forces in play. It has been six decades since Saturn and Jupiter have been in your income sector at the same time and together they will make 2021 a potentially lucrative year. The Sun's return will turn the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options, which this year are considerable.
While the Moon will leave your income sector on Monday, wrapping up its first visit for the year, even this is an advantage. This will allow you to begin the week with a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. However, this is not the only advantage but it means you will be in the perfect position as an alignment between dreamy Neptune and the dwarf planet Ceres begins on Tuesday and then runs through to Friday. This is an alignment that has been nine months in the making and will have implications for months into the future. This is a chance for a deep dive into Neptune and Ceres' ongoing mission to update your income dreams, needs and priorities ahead of not only the Sun's return to your income sector next month but lucky Jupiter's return in May. The money gods have invested a lot into preparing you for the income potential ahead and this week you have a window into this.
The Moon returns for an ordinary monthly visit to your income sector on Monday but for what is not only its first visit for the year but since Mars left just 11 days earlier. For the first time in seven months Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos is gone and with it the urgency and constant need to be in battle mode. Mars had returned last June for what should have been a six week visit aimed at helping you to fight for what you deserve. Instead, a retrograde turn kept Mars here for the rest of last year, with his longest visit in 32 years only ending less than two weeks earlier. The Moon returns a week after the dwarf planet Eris turned direct and as the warrior princess of the cosmos, she can take over from where Mars left off but without the urgency. Eris plays a long game and instead of Mars' hot headed enthusiasm, she brings cold headed determination. The Moon will bring a chance to both check in and could also act as a trigger for income developments.
