With the Sun and Jupiter having left your financial sector last month and both Venus and Mercury been and gone, there should be no more focus on money matters this month. At the same time, after Uranus retrograded back out of your income sector last month, there should be no more focus there either, taking all the money gods off the field in this final month. Of course, the word ‘should’ implies that this is not the case, with both income and money matters still in play and money matters more so. While Juno isn’t a major player, as the queen of commitment she is the perfect planet to keep the seat warm on the income front, until Uranus returns in early March. This will keep income matters ticking over just enough to ensure they don’t go off the boil, while in retrograde motion Juno also has her eye on untapped income potential. Especially with things gearing up to start moving professionally in the New Year. In the meantime, while you move into the month with dwarf planet Ceres in your financial sector, this isn’t the low key month this would suggest. Ceres is not a planet focused on making things happen and after so much water has passed under the bridge, her job this month is to redefine your financial needs and priorities. However, the money gods have decided that with lucky Jupiter gone, there is just too much untapped potential to let things quietly run their course. Instead, Mercury will retrograde back in for a double dip visit on 2nd December, with Venus returning for her own double dip visit just a day later. Mercury is only back for 11 days and in retrograde motion until 7th December, there is a chance to head back to the drawing board with his smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight. Venus, on the other hand, is here until 8th January and will see out the year here. If anyone can capitalise on all that has been invested over the last 14 months then Venus, the planet of money can.
The focus is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your financial sector. This is still the case but is just a small part in something much bigger developing this month. For you not only move into the new month with the Sun in your financial sector but lucky Jupiter as well. This is the first full month of Jupiter’s 13 month visit, one that won’t run its course until December 2019. This creates the potential for financial growth, but much of what is ultimately possible is down to what has been invested in the past. Saturn only left your financial sector in December 2017, ending a three year financial boot camp. Saturn doesn’t make things easy, but between December 2014 and December 2017, you have gained some serious experience, something you are now apply to benefit from as Jupiter returns to usher in a period of financial growth. Where Saturn was all about tightening your belt, Jupiter is all about expanding it. With the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters until the Sun leaves on 22nd December, this is a chance to get off to an authentic start. The Sun focuses on what is, whereas Jupiter has 13 months to help you achieve what’s possible. You also start the month with Mercury in your financial sector, but in retrograde motion, he has the brakes on. That will change when Mercury retrogrades back out on 2nd December, returning just 11 days later, back in direct motion, on 13th December. A New Moon on 7th December will ensure that when Mercury returns money matters already have the green light. Mercury will spend the rest of the year here, allowing you to end the year and move into 2019 with a smart head for money.
There is a mix of the expected and the unexpected this month. On the income front, it is all unexpected, especially for this time of year, where on the financial front it is a mix of the two. The expected is, that with Saturn in your financial sector until December 2020 and Pluto until 2024, just like every other month this year the focus is on your financial situation and money matters. Also expected is the Sun’s return to your financial sector on 22nd December, for this is the point in every year when the solar spotlight moves onto your financial situation and money matters. What is not expected is that you have the South Node spending its first full month in your financial sector in 17 years and the implications this will have. The biggest implication will be felt when this turns an ordinary New Moon in the New Year into a solar eclipse, creating the potential for major new financial beginnings. Until then the South Node is giving you access to the past, especially in terms of completion. However, here until May 2020, there is little if any urgency. What is completely unexpected is to have any focus on income matters at this time of year. Instead the North Node, the more powerful and auspicious of the two lunar nodes in your income sector, again for the first time in 17 years. Unlike the South Node, which is about the past and completion, the North Node is about future potential, prosperity and leading things forward in a lucrative direction. With Mars spending the whole of December in your career sector and Venus, the planet of money returning to your work sector on 3rd December, this creates some exciting dynamics across the income, work and career fronts. Not just this month, but leading into 2019.
For the first time in 18 months you have no cosmic activity in either of your two money houses, yet strangely this creates the potential for what should be a good month for both income and money matters. It was on 7th November that the lunar nodes left your two money houses, where they had been since May 2017. As well as creating a series of eclipses in your income and financial sectors since then, they have also policed a balance between money coming in and money going out. Because Mars only wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your financial sector on 16th November, this may have created some financial tension through much of this year. Just over two weeks later you move into December to find no financial agendas in play and that financial tensions have dialled back. To start with this is a huge advantage and you would be happy to settle for that. However, you don’t have Mars fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit for six months and not emerge not only knowing how to take your financial power back, but determined to not let anything stand in your way. When it comes to money matters you’ve earned your black belt. What you can’t yet appreciate and won’t until you reach the total lunar eclipse in your income sector next month, is just how much income potential the North Node has created. Even the professional gods in play on the job and career fronts are working undercover, with the full implications of what is building on the job and career fronts not becoming obvious until the New Year. January 2019 is the month that everything will come together across the income, work and career fronts, in a stunning and potentially game changing way. Until the money gods are stepping back, giving you time to get your professional ducks in a row.
December is usually a fairly quiet month for money matters, though in reality, they will never go completely off the boil. That is because, unlike your income sector, which is only active for a few months each year, you have had planetary activity in your financial sector since 2003 and will do until dreamy Neptune leaves in 2026. However, when you have planets here for years if not decades, this is more a case of keeping things ticking over, with months of out of every year spent in retrograde motion. The month starts with Neptune in his early days in direct motion in your financial sector and Chiron in his final days in retrograde motion, before turning direct on 9th December. With the Sun not returning to your financial sector until February and with Neptune and Chiron both having had to come to a standstill in order to turn direct, this should be a slow and fairly quiet month for money matters, typical for this time of year. Yet the word ‘should’ implies that this is not the case, thanks to Mars’ return last month. Mars is making his first visit in 22 months and is here to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, in an effort to help you take your financial power back. Due to leave on New Year’s Day, Mars is here for the rest of the year and as first Neptune and then Chiron turns direct, this will see the links to the past released in stages, each one speeding things up. It is when Mars and Neptune align on 7th/8th December that you will have a chance to bring your financial dreams, passions and fighting spirit together. This is in Chiron’s final days in retrograde motion here for another five decades, with a chance to use part of this warrior energy to lay old financial ghosts and demons to rest. It is time to chase your financial dreams.
The financial tide is starting to turn, but Venus is stubbornly trying to maximise every possible income advantage before handing the reins to money matters. That Venus is even still in your income sector as you move into the new month is an anomaly, for having returned for what should have been a 24 day visit aimed at fuelling your confidence and attracting opportunities in August, the planet of money should be long gone. Venus did leave in early September but retrograded back in for a double dip visit. Now back in direct motion and due to leave on 3rd December, Venus is working to make her final days count. Fortunately, the Moon’s return from 2nd December to 4th December will ensure your nose for money is sharp during Venus’ critical final days. While Venus will be keen to capitalise on any income potential available, she will settle for steering things in a lucrative direction. Mars left your work sector on the same day that Venus turned direct last month and she has been instrumental in steering income and job matters forward ever since. Venus’ departure on 3rd December will bring all planetary activity on the income front to a close. However, the Moon’s return from 29th December to 31st December will be a valuable chance to check in, just before moving into the New Year. With Venus gone the money gods will shift all their resources onto your financial situation and money matters, where they are preparing for a chance to hit the ground running in the New Year. With Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returning to your financial sector on New Year’s Day, the Moon’s last visit for the year is also the last while Uranus is in retrograde motion and before things are due to take off financially. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, as the Moon moves through from 16th December to 18th December.
Just when it was looking like things had run their course, unexpected developments in the early days of the month bring things back into play on the income front. With Mercury having left your income sector at the end of October, Venus in the early hours of November and then Jupiter and finally the Sun over the course of last month, things have all but run their course. The only reason income matters haven’t fully gone off the boil is that the dwarf planet Ceres returned on 12th November and will spend the rest of the year here. However, Ceres’ job is not to explore or capitalise on income potential and if anything, her job is to look beyond the money. Ceres is focused, after the fact, on looking back and after so much water has passed under the bridge, redefine your income needs and priorities. However, the money gods have decided that after lucky Jupiter only wrapped up his 13 month visit last month, that if Ceres isn’t interested in exploring or capitalising on income potential and especially untapped potential, they most certainly are. This is why they are sending back both Mercury and Venus for double dip visits, with Mercury arriving back on 2nd December and Venus on 3rd December. With the Moon moving through from 4th December to 6th December, this will ensure your nose for money is sharp as income matters catch their second wind. Mercury is only back for 11 days and until turning direct on 7th December, he is using his smart head for money to spend time back at the drawing board. Yet while Mercury will leave on 13th December Venus, the planet of money is here for the rest of the year, not leaving until 8th January. If anyone can exploit untapped income potential Venus can. And with Mars spending the whole of December in your work sector the North Node its first full month in your career sector in 17 years, Venus has the full backing of the professional gods.
That the focus is on your income situation and matters at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of December in your income sector. However, this is about the only thing that is typical about this month, with lucky Jupiter’s return last month changing everything. The Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options at this time of year, until leaving on 22nd December. For Jupiter, this is just the first full month of a 13 month visit, one that won’t run its course until December 2019. This is the start of what is potentially your most lucrative income year in over a decade, yet based on not only what is happening here on the income front but professionally as well, you might not feel the full impact of this until next month. It is when Venus returns on 8th January that the planets of luck and money will come together, creating some exceptionally lucrative conditions. With Mars returning to your work sector on New Year’s Day and Uranus turning direct there just days later, this is when the ideal income and job conditions will come together. However, this is the month that the wheels start turning, with the Sun able to create an authentic starting point. Mercury, who returned at the end of October, nine days before Jupiter’s return has already headed back to the drawing board. In retrograde motion, Mercury will retrograde back out on 2nd December, only to return 11 days later, on 13th December. Mercury is then here for the rest of the year, ensuring you end this year and move into 2019, with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. Meanwhile, a New Moon on 7th December will be a chance to regroup while Mercury is gone. While this will create the potential for new opportunities, this is also the point where you’re able to commit to the journey ahead.
That the focus will always be on your income situation and matters at this time of year is a bit misleading, for in reality, with Pluto in your income sector until 2024 and Saturn until December 2020, every month has the focus on income matters. More accurate would be to say that there is usually even more focus in the final month of the year, with the Sun’s return to your income sector on 22nd December always turning the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options at this time every year. Yet by typical standards, things may be slow to pick up, with Mercury not returning until the New Year and Venus not until February. This buys you time to adjust to having the lunar nodes in your two money houses, with the South Node in its first full month in your income sector and the more powerful and dominant North Node, in its first full month in your financial sector. This is the reason for a series of eclipses in your income and financial sectors next year. However, while eclipses only happen at six monthly intervals, until May 2020 the lunar nodes are now policing a balance between money coming in and money going out. For the most part, you won’t be aware of this, except when the Moon becomes involved. As long as the lunar nodes are in your two money houses, which they are from November 2018 to May 2020, the Moon won’t be able to move into either without clashing with the other, which will happen every two weeks. You will experience this when the Moon moves through your income sector from 9th December to 11th December and into opposition with the North Node in your financial sector. The same will happen when the Moon moves through your financial sector from 23rd December to 25th December, opposing the South Node in your income sector. This is the new reality that is not only policing a balance between money coming in and money going out, but is raising the bar on both fronts.
For the first time in 18 months, there is no planetary or other ongoing cosmic activity in either of your two money houses, with just the Moon’s monthly visits bringing the money gods into play. This is good news, for after the lunar nodes left your two money houses last month and Mars left your income sector just nine days later, this has released the tension between money coming in and money going out. Yet this has left you in a win/win situation, with a huge amount of momentum on both the income and financial fronts. With the lunar nodes in constant opposition between May 2017 and November 2018, a policing of a balance between money coming in and money going out created some financial tension. Yet you will find that you’re able to maintain that balance, with very little effort and without the financial tension of the last 18 months. There is also plenty of potential on both fronts and especially on the income front, with Mars having spent the majority of the last six months in your income sector. This also means that the Moon’s monthly visits have become a lot more important, as they are now key to keeping income and money matters on track. The Moon will make its first visit to your income sector since Mars left from 11th December to 14th December. This is the Moon’s last visit for the year and even without Mars’ untapped income potential, this would be the final push on the income front for the year. You will get a chance to focus on money matters as the Moon moves through your financial sector from 25th December to 27th December. This will give you an intuitive read on money matters over Christmas and as you’re lining up for the new financial year.
When you have a planet like Neptune in your income sector until 2026, there is always going to be at least some focus on income matters each month. Unlike money matters, with no planetary activity in your financial sector since the Sun left in September and none due until the second half of 2019, income matters are constantly plugged in. However, with Neptune having only just turned direct late last month and Chiron in retrograde motion until 9th December, this should be a fairly quiet month. With the Sun not returning until February each year, December is usually more about slowly getting your bearings as you start to look ahead. With Neptune and Chiron both having had to come to a standstill in order to turn direct, the last thing you would expect at this time of year is any real movement on the income front. Yet that is exactly what there is the potential for and for that you can thank Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos. Held back for six months in Aquarius, Mars was late returning to your income sector last month, making him more determined to make his time here count. Mars will leave on New Year’s Day, which means he is here for the rest of the year and the timing couldn’t be better. For just as Mars is firing things up on the income front, working to exploit as much untapped income potential as possible, he gains an unexpected ally. Just as it is looking like things are winding down professionally, Venus’ return to your career sector on 3rd December changes everything, especially for Mars. Mercury will return to your career sector for 11 days, from 2nd December to 11th December and while that is an advantage having Venus, the planet of money back on board is a game changer. You will spend the rest of the year with Venus in your career sector and Mars in your income sector, firing things up professionally and financially.
The money gods are getting ready to shift the balance of power and it is happening amicably, despite what a bit of financial tension at the start of the month might suggest. Your two money houses are on opposite sides of the sky, so when you have planetary activity in your income and financial sectors at the same time, this puts them in opposition, with the potential for financial tension. That is the case when Venus, in her final days in your financial sector, moves into opposition with Uranus, in retrograde motion in your income sector on 1st December to 3rd December. Had this been any other planet this would have been a power struggle, but knowing the balance of power is about to shift from money and onto income matters, rather than fight it, Venus will be doing everything she can to support this. That is because, while Venus is in your financial sector and is therefore focused on money matters as a whole, she is the planet of money and especially of earned income. Venus needs Uranus to pick up his game as he not only spends his last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector this year, but for another eight decades. With Mars returning to your income sector on New Year’s Day and lucky Jupiter in his first full month of a 13 month visit to your career sector, Venus is aware of the huge potential building on both the income and professional fronts. A bit of financial tension at the start of the month will quickly drop back when Venus leaves your financial sector on 3rd December. Yet it won’t take much to turn this into motivation on both fronts. Venus’ aim is to leave you with your financial confidence fuelled, before the money gods shift all there focus onto income matters. There you have a chance to regroup, as you prepare for things to take off in the New Year.
