While you start the year with a lot of focus on money matters, this will settle back, but not before giving you a huge amount of momentum and motivation. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has spent the last six weeks of 2018 in your financial sector and while he will leave on New Year’s Day, he will allow you to hit the ground running from the get go. This is also the last time in our lifetime, that the year begins with Mars and Neptune, the planets of passion and dreams in your financial sector. They will meet up again in 2020, but not over the New Year and that is critical. This allows you to start the year with your financial dreams, passions and fighting spirit not only fuelled from the get go but aligned. Mars’ departure will be a chance to pull back and ahead of the Sun’s return next month, regroup. Chiron only turned direct in your financial sector in December and Neptune in late November, so they never intended to approach money matters in the fast and furious way that Mars does. Mars’ departure will leave you motivated, but with a chance to pull back. The Moon’s return to your financial sector from 10th January to 12th January will be a chance to regroup. In the meantime, with no planetary activity in your income sector, the Moon’s return from 23rd January to 25th January is a valuable chance to gain an intuitive read on income matters. The Moon spent Christmas in your income sector, so this will be a chance to revisit some of the ideas this may have triggered over the holiday period. With February a massive month for job and career developments, the timing couldn’t be better.
