Even though the actual shift in focus from money and onto income matters won't overlap, there is a slight overlapping this week, to a point where it gives you a taste of things to come. When Ceres leaves your financial sector next week she will wrap up 15 months of continuous planetary activity, including the 13 months that Jupiter spent here. Next month, Mars' return to your income sector will usher in a new income era, one that will expand exponentially over the coming months. To put this in proportion, 15 months of continuous planetary activity on the financial front will run its course next week. In contrast, a seven year period of continuous planetary activity on the income front will begin next month. What is important this week, is the Moon's return to your income sector, bringing a taste of things to come. This week is still more about money matters and in particular, defining your financial needs and priorities, but this is more about tying up loose ends.
Everything about the Moon's return to your income sector on Thursday is important and timely. This first visit for the year is always a valuable chance to get your bearings, sharpen your nose for money and gain a lucrative sense of direction. With the Sun returning to your career sector on Sunday and Mercury next week, the timing couldn't be better. However, the Moon also performs another important function and again, the timing couldn't be better. A day after the Moon's return, an opposition with Venus and Jupiter in your financial sector, might push some buttons and create some financial tension. However, this comes just as Venus is drawing closer to an alignment with Jupiter and as she aligns with Mars in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart. Any financial tension will kick in just as your financial confidence, instincts and imagination are being fuelled. It will be hard to see this as anything other than motivation.
In a week where the overwhelming focus is on your financial situation and money matters as a whole, the money gods will employ some crafty means to ensure income matters are just as well represented. The more obvious way is through the Moon's return to your income sector over the weekend. This first visit for the year will also see the Moon come full circle from last month's lunar eclipse, something which always has the power to trigger unexpected developments. In the lead up to this the North Node, which will spend the whole year in your income sector, will spend the majority of the week aligned with Ceres, in her last full week in your work sector. The Sun will leave your financial sector on Sunday, before the Moon can move into opposition and create a second Full Moon. An opposition with the other forces there might create some financial tension, but also a lot of motivation.
This is not a particularly active week for money matters and in fact, for the majority of the week even the money gods will ask you to keep your money hat off. Yet it is in the final hours of the week that everything changes. It will begin with the Sun's return to your financial sector on Sunday, turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters, as it does at this time every year. It is what happens next that is the game changer. What happens next is the Moon's return to your income sector on Monday and the total lunar eclipse this will create. Last year created so much untapped financial and income potential that this could be a catalyst for a major breakthrough on both fronts. The professional gods are definitely preparing for that, with major forces on the job and career fronts working together as a team. So much so that this week is more about having your work and professional hats on.
The intensity and any urgency might have dialled back since Mars left your financial sector on New Year's Day, but the timing couldn't be better. Mars had not only spent the last six weeks of 2018 firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, but as first Neptune and then Chiron turned direct, pushed money matters that were stuck and stalled. With the Sun returning next month, there is a chance now to let things settle. The Moon only left your financial sector over the weekend, allowing you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. This first visit for the year and since Mars left was a chance to regroup, coming down from the hype and intensity of the final two months of 2018. This gives you time to unwrap and process the valuable clues, hunches and insights the Moon has left you with. More importantly, this is a chance to reset your focus to this new financial year.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector is always an advantage, allowing you to start the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. Even more so as this is not just the Moon's first visit for the year, but the first since Mars returned on New Year's Day. The Moon returned over the weekend, so you begin the week with your financial instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit fuelled from the get go. Yet what makes this even more extraordinary, is that this is the week where an alignment between Mars and Venus, the planet of money is already making this an auspicious week for financial matters in general, but on the home front specifically. The Moon will be gone by Tuesday, just as Mars moves into his final month. This is the point where this new financial year beings, with a chance to really financial power back.
The is a radical shift in focus this year. Last year's focus and 2017 to a large extent has been on money coming in, whereas this year the focus will shift more to your financial situation and money matters as a whole. This week we see the first signs of that transition, as the Moon makes its first visit to your financial sector for the year, during Ceres' last full week in your income sector. When Ceres leaves next week, this will bring continuous planetary activity in your income sector that began in October 2017 to a close. However, not before leaving you with the momentum that will continue to guide and attract income opportunities. Ceres will spend the majority of the week aligned with the North Node in your career sector. Job and career matters will continue to evolve, so this is a chance to give this professional year a lucrative sense of direction. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your financial sector midweek is a chance to start looking ahead.
This is the week that things become a lot more exciting across the income and job fronts. While Jupiter returned to your income sector in November and Mars returned to your work sector on New Year's Day, it is only now that the conditions become ideal and start to merge on both fronts. As Uranus and Eris spend their first full week in direct motion in your work sector, it is only now that work and job matters have the green light. Starting the week with the Moon here, is the jump start this new professional year needs. This comes just as Venus, the planet of money is spending her first full week in your income sector. Moving towards an alignment with Jupiter early next week, just in time for a total lunar eclipse in your career sector, Venus also reaches out to Mars this week. It is their alignment from Thursday through to early next week, brings income and job matters onto the same track.
The solar spotlight is literally in your income situation, matters and options this week, as the Sun moves into his final days in your income sector. Not due to leave until Sunday, this gives you the majority of the week to make the most of all that this spotlight reveals. It is Mercury's last full week that presents a problem, though the kind you want to have. For the Sun, all you have to do is keep your eyes open and observe. On the other hand, Mercury's last full week is usually more about using his smart head for money to make choices, decisions and plans, before the focus shifts off income matters. The problem is they won't shift off income matters and with Venus returning early next month, the most lucrative months of 2019 are still in front of you. You have Mercury's smart head for money to use when you need to, but with so much still evolving there is a need to keep your mind and your options open.
This is a week that will evolve as it goes, with a need to trust where it is taking you. To start with there is no activity in either of your two money houses and no need to keep your money hat on at all. Make the most of this, for it will be a very different story next week, with a total lunar eclipse whipping up a lot of activity on the income and financial fronts. What is important is the Moon's return to your work sector on Thursday, with a chance to get your first real sense of work and job matters this year. Even the money gods will want you to keep your work hat. For while the Moon will leave your work sector on Saturday, the Sun's return to your income sector the next days will ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. The Sun returns to your income sector at this time every year, but even before next week's lunar eclipse, there is a huge amount of untapped income potential from the get go.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from your income sector over the weekend, you begin the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go, as well as better read on where things stand. This was both the Moon's first visit for the year and the first since Mars left on New Year's Day, taking away the urgency and intensity. Yet, the Moon has revealed that will things may have moved down a gear, what you have now is steady and unsustainable momentum. Until the Sun returns next month, there is a chance to let things play and this week. This week is more chance to get your professional ducks in a row, as an alignment between forces on the job and career fronts works to give you an updated sense of direction on both fronts. There is however, reason for confidence across the income, work and career fronts. Across all fronts, there is a chance this week to regroup.
Starting the week with Moon in your income sector is always an advantage, giving you a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. Yet nothing about this week is ordinary and this makes the timing of the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year extraordinary. It is not just that this is the Moon's first visit since Mars' return on New Year's Day, but comes just as Venus, the planet of money is spending her first full week in your career sector. Venus returns to your career sector once a year and Mars to your income sector once every other year, but it has been 30 years since they were last here at the same time. With the planets of money and war aligning from Thursday and right through to next week's total lunar eclipse on the job front, of all the weeks to start with the Moon in your income sector, this is it.
