The focus will always be on your income situation, matters and options as you move into the New Year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your income sector. However, while this is when the solar spotlight shifts onto income situation and matters, it can only reveal what is there and that’s what makes this such a powerful and even game changing month. The Sun returned just before Christmas to find Saturn and Pluto still here, as they were when he left last January, but also that the South Node is making its first visit in 17 years. It is the South Node that not only provides a link to untapped income potential but will turn a very ordinary New Moon on 6th January into an extraordinary solar eclipse. This turns the New Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun’s month long visit, into a trigger to all that has been building behind the scenes, while opening new pathways. Fortunately, Mercury will return on 5th January, just a day before. This will ensure that you have the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, as the solar eclipse gives income matters some serious momentum. However, despite the powerful start to the year that income matters get, these aren’t the most lucrative weeks of 2019. Held back by a retrograde phase in 2018 Venus, planet of money won’t return to your income sector until early next month and the timing couldn’t be better. Apart from Venus’ ability to attract opportunities, what makes her return early next month so auspicious, is that she will return just days before Mars’ return to your work sector. This month you have the momentum on the income front, but not on the job front.
