The Moon finds itself in the right place at the right time for much of this week but that is especially so on the income front in the early part of the week. The Moon will return to your income sector on Monday and for that reason alone this will ensure your nose for money is sharp during the first three days of the week and that is a good way to start any week. However, there are several other layers to this that makes this even more significant. One important factor is the Moon's friendly aspect to all three planets in your career sector just before leaving on Wednesday. It was just a week earlier that the pressure on those planets lifted, with a friendly aspect from the Moon not only a chance to boost your professional confidence but put income and career matters on the same page. Another factor is that this is a chance to get an intuitive sense of where the money is ahead of the Sun and Mercury's return to your work sector next week but more importantly, ahead of Uranus' retrograde turn in your income sector over the weekend.
Venus' departure from your income sector over the weekend may have ended all planetary activity here but not all the focus or momentum. This is a win/win, leaving you with more than enough income momentum and potential but in the process creating a more level playing field between your two money houses and between money coming in and money going out. This is the first week since the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses in early May where there is no planetary activity and three months after their return there is nothing masking their influence. There has been no planetary activity in your financial sector since the South Node returned and that will remain the case until later in the year. However, Venus had already been in your income sector for a month when the North Node returned and not only have the Sun and Mercury moved through, a lunar eclipse in June has already revealed its influence. With Venus gone the lunar nodes are on a more equal footing.
Held back by a retrograde phase which meant she spent four months in Gemini instead of 24 days Venus, the planet of money finally left and returned to your income sector over the weekend. Still not up to top speed Venus will spend the next four weeks here and with the Sun and Mercury having already passed through and the North Node having just wrapped up an 18 month visit in May, there is a lot of potential for her to exploit. The time that Venus spends in your income sector each year are the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year because working with the laws of attraction she is able to attract the money in a way that other planets can't. Because much of the hard work has already been done, this gives Venus a head start. The Moon will return with a chance to check in over the weekend and as the only visit while Venus is here, this will be a valuable chance to get a better sense of where the money is. Because Mercury only wrapped up a two month visit last week, you benefit from starting with a smart head for money.
With the Sun leaving your income sector at the end of next week this was always going to be an important week on the income front and for making the most of having the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. However, with Mercury spending his first, last and only full week here this is also an important week for getting your head in the game and for working with his smart head for money to take practical steps. Unlike the over two months that he had been in Cancer before he left last week, Mercury will only spend 15 days in your income sector this year. Yet while this means that you can't afford to waste the opportunity to work with Mercury's smart head for money and the Sun's transparency, there isn't the urgency you would expect. That is because the most potentially lucrative weeks of 2020 won't begin until Venus, the planet of money returns to your income sector early next month. Already professional support is rising to meet this.
Because the Moon has only just left your financial sector over the weekend, this allows you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. An alignment with Neptune and Ceres, both in retrograde motion there, has also been a chance to check in on their ongoing mission to review your financial dreams, needs and priorities. This was also a chance to check in on your financial situation and money matters before new income developments next week. Because there is planetary activity in your financial sector all year, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, with both planets in retrograde motion they are getting out of the way in order to give income matters some attention. When the Sun and Mercury return next week this will be the first planetary activity on the income front this year but already, while money matters move into review mode planets on the job and career fronts are getting into position.
The Moon returns to your financial sector every four weeks, so to start the week with it just wrapping up its monthly visit is a case of good timing but not a game changer. This means that you are able to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. However, this is also when you will start to appreciate the bigger picture. The Moon will leave your financial sector in the early hours of the week, six weeks after Mars returned for what should have been a six week visit. When they aligned over the weekend it should have been to say goodbye, not meeting up here again for another two years. However, while this has brought your financial instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit together there was no goodbye. Instead, as the Moon leaves Mars moves into his final month in direct motion and slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn that will keep him here for the rest of the year, this is when it becomes clear that you are playing a long game.
To have the Moon return to your financial sector on Monday is always a case of good timing. This will ensure your financial instincts and imagination are fuelled and that you have a better read on your financial situation and money matters in the first three days of the week, something you will benefit from all week. Since Uranus' return last year and until he leaves in 2026, this is also a chance to check in with the planet that is giving you a sense of financial direction but is also on a long mission to redefine your financial needs and priorities. If money is simply a means to an end, then Uranus' focus is on the end goal. As the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, the Moon's return each month can trigger unexpected, serendipitous or eureka moments. This time the Moon plays another important role, in that with Uranus turning retrograde over the weekend this will pick up on when to wait and where there is still room for forward movement.
When after four months in your financial sector Venus, the planet of money left over the weekend this was a win/win for both financial and income matters. After four months Venus has not only spent four times as long as she normally would updating your financial wish list and fuelling your financial confidence but creating the kind of momentum that the rest of this financial year will benefit from. It also means that this is the first week since the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses that there has been no planetary activity in either, creating a more level playing field. With the first planet to reach your income sector in 2020 arriving next month, Venus has been able to get money matters to a point where it is easy to sustain the right momentum and stay on track and this frees you to focus more on money coming in. With so much now starting to come together on the job and career fronts, the timing couldn't be better.
Compared to Mercury's final days in your financial sector last week, Venus' early days here this week are no comparison. As did the Sun before him, Mercury spent his final days in your financial sector at odds with all three planets in your income sector, with that clash only ending when Mercury left last Wednesday. However, as well as raising the bar on both sides of the financial fence this put Mercury's smart head for money to good use. Venus won't face that push back until just before she leaves next month, giving the planet of money a chance to restore your financial confidence and motivation while letting income and money matters get back to their own business. And on both sides this is looking good, especially once the Moon moves through your work sector in the first three days of the week. With Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion moving into his final month in retrograde motion in your income sector midweek, this will bring the insight and motivation to make the most of the doors that are still open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
Any financial tension that last week's Full Moon was going to create left with the Moon when it left your income sector last week. The Moon's departure took any financial tension with it but left behind benefits on both sides of the financial fence that continue to unfold. This made Venus, the planet of money's final days in your work sector a lot more productive, with the final days of a four month mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction some of the best. The Moon and Venus are gone but their legacy lives on. Meanwhile, this is giving the Sun and Mercury a chance to bring the focus back onto your financial situation and money matters. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options until leaving your financial sector later next week but for Mercury this is his first, last and only full week. Mercury is giving you the smart head for money needed to make the right financial choices, decisions and plans.
While the Moon left your income sector over the weekend, this was always going to mean starting the week with a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. At the same time, an alignment with Ceres and Neptune, both in retrograde motion in your income sector was a chance to check in on their review of your income needs and priorities, which is ongoing. However, by far the biggest advantage is that the Moon returned just hours before Venus, the planet of money returned to your work sector, hungry to make up for lost time from the get go. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus has finally returned to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction and starting with a sharp nose for money from the get go is giving her a head start. This also planted a flag over Neptune and Ceres, alerting income potential to their presence.
The Moon might leave your income sector in the early hours of the week but just starting the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go was going to make this a game changer. Not because of the event itself, with the Moon returning every four weeks but because of the timing. With the Sun in his last and Mercury his first, last and only full week in your work sector, if there is one week when you want a sharp nose for money from the get go this is it. However, the Moon leaves on the same day that Mars moves into his final month in direct motion, six weeks after returning for what should have been a six week visit. This is when it becomes clear that the warrior planet of the cosmos is here to stay and by the time he aligns with Eris, warrior princess of the cosmos here over the weekend, it will be clear that what was a battle to fight for what you deserve is now an all out war. It is over the weekend that Mars will also move into a friendly aspect to the Sun, drawing income and job matters into an even tighter bond.
