It was just over a year ago, just days before Christmas 2017 that Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos left your financial sector, wrapping up a three year financial boot camp. No wonder you might have some trepidation moving into the New Year, wondering whether those times will return. Instead, for the first time in over a decade, you begin the year with Jupiter in your financial sector and not leaving until December, the planet of luck and expansion is here for all but the final weeks of 2019. Where there were financial challenges in the past there is now opportunity, especially to draw on the financial experience gained in the past. Jupiter is all about growth, making 2019 a potentially expansive year, especially for financial growth and for taking your power back. You begin the year with Mercury here and before leaving on 5th January, he is focused on leaving you with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. While Jupiter returned in November, there may yet to be any evidence that this really is a lucky year for money matters. You can expect more when Venus, the planet of money finally returns on 8th January. Venus is here until early February, with the planets of money and luck joining forces for the first time in your financial sector, in 12 years. Their alignment on 22nd/23rd January will create an auspicious few days for money matters. With no planetary activity in your income sector and therefore no pressure on money matters, the Moon’s visit from 17th January to 19th January is important. With the Sun returning to your career sector on 20th January, this will ensure you have a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go.
