While it is not unusual to begin the year with planetary activity in either of your two money houses if you do, it will nearly always be in your financial sector. This year you have planetary activity in both and while the balance of power is on money matters, this is a taste of things to come, with the much weaker income forces ultimately proving the most enduring. You begin the year with both the Moon and Venus in your financial sector. This will ensure you start the year with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled and a sense of what you want from the get go. However, with the Moon leaving on 2nd January and Venus six days later, this is when a period of continuous 15 month period of planetary activity will finally run its course. It was Jupiter’s departure in November, that brought his 13 month visit to an end, a legacy that Venus is still working to exploit. This is all about starting the year knowing what you want financially and having the confidence to continue to raise the bar. This makes it more important to start the year with a wish list, rather than a list of financial resolutions. Meanwhile, the Moon and Venus’ presence will dwarf tiny Juno, who is still in her early days in direct motion in your income sector, having turned direct just before Christmas. As the queen of commitment, Juno is happy to stay in the background, knowing that Mars is returning next month and Uranus in early March. You are on the brink of a massive surge in income potential that will continue for the next seven years. Juno knows that the big boys are on their way, so is happy to stay in the background, quietly fostering a sense of resolve.
