This is one week when the repercussions of a Venus retrograde phase in 2018, is set to have implications in 2019. It was a retrograde phase that held Venus, the planet of money back so that this year, she was late to return to your income sector and therefore will be late to leave and that has implications this week. For the Sun and Mercury, still reeling from an attack from a Full Moon in your financial sector over the weekend, will both leave your income sector on Tuesday. This should take all the focus off income matters and in other years, that would be the case. Instead, Venus only returned last week and in her first full week is already using any financial tension the weekend's Full Moon may have created as motivation. The weeks that Venus spends in your income sector can be some of the most potentially lucrative of any year and as the Sun and Mercury leave, she will come into her own.
Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector should be a mixed blessing, especially based on the experience of recent months. Yet the Moon has managed to slip through during a five day window where there is no planetary activity in your income sector and therefore in opposition, where there could have been push back. Mars only left your income sector last Thursday and the Sun literally returns to your income sector just three minutes after the Moon leaves your financial sector on Tuesday. As the Moon returns to reconnect with lucky Jupiter, it is clear that luck really is on your side. This allows you to make the first two days of the week all about taking a deep dive into your financial instincts and imagination on the financial front. Then, as the Sun and Mercury both return to your income sector, in the Sun's case just minutes after the Moon leaves and in Mercury's case just hours later, to shift the focus back onto income matters.
As he moves into his first full week in your income sector since 2017 Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is on a high, ready to smash through glass ceilings and encourage you to fight for what you deserve. Buoyed by the weekend's Full Moon on the job front and from support by dreamy Neptune in your career sector, Mars is ready to ride this professional wave. Mars is here now until just a day before a total solar eclipse in early July, so will play an integral role in preparing you for the major new beginnings ahead. While the Moon has already left your work sector, as the weekend's Full Moon was the first since lucky Jupiter left in November, this has unleashed any untapped job potential. Even returning to find Saturn and Pluto in your financial sector will fire up Mars' warrior spirit, for there is nothing the warrior planet likes better than competition.
While you begin the week with no focus on either income or money matters, this gives you time to continue to keep your work and professional hats on, keeping the impact from the Moon's visit to your income sector last week alive. You not only began last week with the Moon in your income sector but as Venus, the planet of money was moving into her final days in your career sector. As Venus' job was to steer things in a lucrative direction ahead of new income opportunities opening up next month, it is still all about keeping your work and professional hats on. With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses, until the first planet reaches your income sector for the year next month, the Moon's monthly visits have become more important. This makes the Moon's return to your financial sector in time to spend the majority of the weekend here, a valuable chance then to get your financial bearings.
Neptune, the planet of dreams and the only planet in either of your two money houses is having a very good week and that means that you will as well. Ever since the North Node's return to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart last November, it has been moving closer to a positive aspect with Neptune and they finally came together last week. It was last Friday that a 17 day alignment between the two began, something that is already fuelling your financial confidence, instincts and imagination, while giving old financial dreams a boost. As Mars spends his first full week in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart he is adding to that boost in confidence, while backing this up with a bold sense of daring. Even the weekend's Full Moon fell at a friendly aspect to Neptune. Neptune's job is to keep your financial dreams alive and to that end, he has some powerful support this week.
It was last week that saw income and money matters both reach a point where everything was out on the open and both sides left all their options on the table. It was last Wednesday that Venus, the planet of money left your financial sector and as the last of the faster moving planets to move through, she has left you with a clear mandate moving forward. With slower but more enduring forces now at the wheel, when it comes to money matters it has now become more about the journey. It was just hours before Venus left that the Moon finally came full circle from two Full Moons in your income sector with everything now exposed and on the table. The Moon returned during Mars' last full day in your career sector, so when the Sun and Mercury return on Tuesday it will be to find both a professional path already forged and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go.
The only problem facing any planet moving through your financial sector this year is that with no planets in your income sector and therefore in opposition, there is no competition. Competition between your two money houses keeps you on your toes and guards against complacency. Yet, just when you needed it most, the weekend's Full Moon in your income sector gave money matters the right wakeup calls at the right time. For with the Sun and Mercury in their last weekend in your financial sector and Venus her first, this was not the time to be asleep at the wheel. Until the Sun and Mercury leave on Tuesday, they're able to use any financial tension created as motivation, especially while you still have Mercury's smart head for money to work with. Venus will stay on to keep the momentum going. In the meantime, with Mars in his first full week in your career sector and an alignment between job and professional forces underway, income potential triggered is in safe hands.
Starting the week with the 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. However, over recent months this has been a mixed blessing, with the Moon unable to move through without opposing planets in your financial sector. Yet timing means that this monthly visit is the exception. Just five days separate Mars' departure from your financial sector last Thursday and the Sun and Mercury's return on Tuesday, yet the Moon manages to hit the first bit of clear air since January. The Moon leaves just three minutes before the Sun returns to your financial sector on Tuesday, managing to get in and out before money matters come back into play. This makes it important to start the week listening to your intuition, instincts and imagination on the income front, with tunnel vision if need be. Money matters will get their turn when the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters.
Mars' return to your financial sector last week has not so much changed the game, as it has intensified the game. Ever since the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses in November, they have worked to police a balance between money coming in and money going out. Yet until now, while you have had Saturn and Pluto in your income sector throughout that time, there has been no planetary activity on the financial front. That changed with Mars' return and as he begins his mission to fuel your financial passions and fighting spirit as the first step to taking your financial power back, he is putting income forces on notice. You will have your first taste of this competition when the Moon moves through your income sector midweek and into opposition with Mars. Yet with both sides so well supported, any financial tension this may create will quickly turn into motivation. The bar has been raised on both fronts.
With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses, the Moon's monthly visits to both have become a lot more important. Last week began with the Moon in its final hours in your financial sector, leaving you with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled and valuable clues, hunches and insights you had the whole of last week to process. This is something you will continue to benefit from this week. However, the Moon will turn its attention to income matters this week and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon won't return to your income sector until Friday, giving the Sun and Mercury time to settle in after their return to your work sector on Tuesday. Taking over from where Mars left off last week, this is a chance to give work and job matters your full attention, before getting a better sense of where the money is, later in the week. This should also boost your confidence across the income, work and career fronts.
The weekend's Full Moon will have an impact on the coming week and it is all positive. This is part of the reason why Neptune, the only planet in either of your two money houses is having a very good week. It was the weekend's professionally charged Full Moon that not only fell at a friendly aspect to Neptune in your income sector, but just as Mars was spending his first weekend in your work sector. Even without the Full Moon or Mars' return, this would still have been a good week for Neptune and for income matters. For it was last Friday, during Mars' first full day in your work sector and as the Moon returned to your income sector, that Neptune began a 17 day alignment with the North Node. This is an alignment that has been building all year, creating some positive conditions across the income and job fronts. What Mars' return and the weekend's Full Moon have done, is make this easier to exploit.
Last week saw Venus leave your income sector and the Moon come full circle from two Full Moons in your financial sector. On both sides of the fence, this was a case of the money gods playing a game of 'I'll show you mine if you show me yours'. Venus was the culmination of everything that has been building on the income front since Mars' return on New Year's Day, with her departure last Wednesday leaving you with all your options exposed. This also made it clear just how much enduring support there was on both the income and professional fronts. It was the Moon's return to your financial sector on the same day that Venus left that brought a chance to make sense of two Full Moons over recent months. Together, this has left you with a better sense of where things stand on the income and financial fronts, what you have to work with and the potential there to exploit. At the same time, this has left you with a better sense of how to balance money coming in and money going out.
