Starting the week with the Moon in your income sector is always an advantage but there are some added benefits but also a lot more significance this time. Yes, this is the visit that the Moon will make every four weeks, with a chance to sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger. However, this is not just the first visit since the Sun left but the Moon has come full circle from last month's New Moon, something that can see things launched then come to fruition. This increases the potential for unexpected developments, especially on Monday and Tuesday. However, this also puts the Moon here just as a clash between Mars and Pluto, which is stress testing your work/life balance is coming to an end. A friendly aspect between the Moon and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your career sector on Tuesday will boost your confidence and give you a better sense of where the money is. This will make it easier to work smarter.
Venus' departure from your income sector last week has changed the dynamics on the income front but in a way that is a natural progression. Venus' job was to raise the bar on your expectations, trigger the laws of attraction and leave you with a lucrative sense of direction. With Mars having recently moved through, Venus only had to spend 24 days here this year, as opposed to the four months she spent here in 2020. With the Sun and Mercury staying on this is when it became more about the 'when, where and how'. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options for another two weeks while in retrograde motion, Mercury and his smart head for money are more focused on the past. The Moon will align with both when it returns midweek, with an eclipsing New Moon on Thursday creating the potential for new opportunities. With Mercury in retrograde motion, this can be a trigger for both new and untapped income potential.
There is a changing of the guard on the income front this week but also an important overlap. From Venus' return to your income sector last week until Mars leaves over the weekend is a period of nine days, bringing the planets of money and passion together here for the first time since 2009. Last year Venus didn't return until August and Mars didn't return at all. This means that when Mars leaves Venus will keep the momentum going while benefiting from the war he is waging on glass ceilings, roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined, as he urges you to fight for what you deserve. It was Mars' clash with Pluto in your financial sector over the weekend that has already seen the warrior planet of the cosmos take the gloves off, ready to come out fighting and to turn any financial tension into motivation on both sides of the financial fence. Venus, who has returned to begin what can be the most lucrative weeks of any year will ultimately capitalise on this.
From where this week begins to how it ends is so completely different that the whole dynamics of this financial year will shift. Until now, the only planetary activity in your two money houses has been in your financial sector, where the focus more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. With Saturn here and in retrograde motion, the focus is not only on money matters but on financial housekeeping and maintenance. While this will continue, with the focus on the rear view mirror this has created a vacuum which Mars is about to take advantage of. The whole dynamics of this financial year will change when Mars returns to your income sector over the weekend, with his first visit in two years kicking off the first planetary activity on the income front in eight months and the most lucrative months of 2021. Mars returns to declare war on glass ceilings, roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined and to help you fight for what you deserve.
While Venus' return to a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart last week and Mars final days here are more about bringing your current Venus and Mars cycles home, this has already had a positive financial impact. In the days leading up to Venus' return last week, Mars had formed a friendly aspect to dreamy Neptune in your financial sector. Venus' return then saw her form a friendly aspect to Jupiter, just as the Moon was moving through your financial sector. By the time the Moon left your financial sector last Friday the planets of money, passion, luck and dreams had come together to fuel your financial confidence, passions, instincts and imagination. With Jupiter and Neptune both slowing down ahead of retrograde turns in your financial sector later in the month this is helping to fuel your financial dreams, goals and ambitions in a major new way.
The Moon's departure from your financial sector on Sunday allows you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. While this was an ordinary monthly visit and with the last of the faster planets having left last month was more a chance to check in, this was also a chance to revisit your financial needs and priorities. The Moon was here when the dwarf planet Ceres left last month, wrapping up her first visit in four years and her last for another four. Ceres was here as the Sun, Venus and Mercury moved through, observing your annual financial update while on a mission to update your financial needs and priorities. This meant looking beyond the money and because the Moon was here when she left, this is something that you had a read on, at the time. As the Moon comes full circle this will revive memories that your subconscious has been holding onto.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector is always an advantage. Yet as well as fuelling your financial instincts and imagination from the start, this is also a chance to tie up loose ends and by Wednesday, having a better sense of where to from here. This is not just the Moon's first visit since the Sun left your financial sector but coming full circle from last month's New Moon, this is when all the pieces still in play will come together. The Moon will also align with both Uranus and the dwarf planet Ceres, the planets that will keep money matters moving forward and the momentum going on Monday. The timing couldn't be better for this comes just as Uranus and Ceres are moving into an alignment. This is something that is bringing Uranus' awareness into closer alignment with Ceres' focus on your financial needs and priorities. This could be an enlightening week across the financial front.
When Venus left your financial sector last week, she left you with your financial expectations updated but by leaving, this changed the dynamics. Unlike the planet of money, who was more focused on the 'what', the Sun and Mercury are focused on the 'when, where and how' but also on keeping things real. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters for another two weeks while in retrograde motion, Mercury's smart head for money is focused on the rear view mirror, with a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. It is midweek, two weeks after an eclipsing Full Moon in your income sector that the Moon will return to your financial sector, creating an eclipsing New Moon on Thursday. As this solar eclipse will complete what began on a lunar eclipse two weeks earlier this could be a catalyst for both income and money matters.
While there could be some financial tension at the start of the week this is ultimately good news on both sides of the financial fence. The week begins with the tail end of an opposition between Mars on the financial and Pluto on the income front just running its course. A clash between the planets of war and revolution is not only an even match, as both are born to fight, this is energising. It helps that both have seconds in this fight. For Pluto, in retrograde motion in your income sector, it is starting the week with the Moon in your work sector at a friendly aspect, turning any financial tension into motivation. On the other side of the financial fence, Mars is supported by Venus, in her first full week in your financial sector. This is the first time that the planets of money and passion have been in your financial sector at the same time since 2009 and with Mars leaving over the weekend, there is a lot of motivation on this side of the financial fence as well.
This is not only a week of two halves in terms of which side of the financial fence the focus is on but the beginning of a shift in power. The week begins, as has every other week this year, with all the planetary activity in your income sector. However, with Saturn on his own and in retrograde motion after Jupiter left, any urgency has dialled back and on this side of the financial fence, things have moved into review mode. Saturn is still the only planet in either of your two money houses so this is still where all the focus is. The Moon's return to your work sector and the eclipsing New Moon this will create on Thursday will be a catalyst for income and job matters. However, while Saturn will help you maintain a strong hold on income matters, Mars' return to your financial sector over the weekend finally brings some much needed attention to the other side of the financial fence.
As she moves into her first full week in your work sector, as the planet of money Venus was always going to be wearing two hats. Venus has returned to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction, something that she will do at some point during the middle months of each year. However, rarely with this about of backup or resources at that includes on the income and job fronts, with the two going hand in hand. Venus returned to find Mars in your work sector and while he will leave over the weekend, not before clearing a path for new job potential and growth. Venus also returned to find lucky Jupiter in your income sector and has already spent her first 48 hours in your work sector at a friendly aspect. This is the same aspect that Mars formed with dreamy Neptune on the income front last week, with income and job matters now in lockstep and with Venus, the planet of money right in the middle of it all.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from your income sector on Sunday, you not only start the week with a sharp nose for money but with a better understanding of your income needs and priorities and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon will return to your income sector every four weeks and connecting with the planets that will keep the momentum going all year was a chance to tap into their lucrative sense of direction. However, the Moon was here when the dwarf planet Ceres left last month, a witness to her final hours updating your income needs and priorities. That information was filed away by your subconscious, with the Moon able to revisit this over the weekend. What makes the timing auspicious is that it comes just days before Mars' return to your work sector over the weekend will open new doors on the job front. Having a lucrative sense of direction and knowing your income needs and priorities will make it easier to work smarter from the start.
