While it is business as usual on the income front, business as usual is a good place to be. It was in late November that dreamy Neptune, the only planet in either of your two money houses turned direct in your income sector. While Neptune spent most of December barely moving, it was with the support of Mars in your career and the North Node in your work sector. While Mars will leave your career sector on 3rd January, not before giving this professional year a head start, something that a lunar eclipse on the job front on 10th/11th January can capitalise on. With the Sun and Mercury not returning to your income sector until February, even if Neptune was to spend another month on his own this would still put you in a good position.
However, that is not the case with Venus, the planet of money returning to your income sector on 14th January. The 24 days that Venus spends in your income sector can be some of the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year and especially as she returns just 11 days after Mars leaves your career sector and just days after a lunar eclipse on the job front.
Just returning and joining forces with Neptune is an advantage, with Venus all about desire and Neptune all about dreams. If this did nothing more than boost your income confidence and encourage a serious approach to wishful thinking that would still be enough.
Venus and Neptune are free to focus on the 'what', with the Sun and Mercury returning next month to focus on the 'when, where and how'. You also have the added advantage of beginning the year with the Moon in your income sector and therefore with a sharp nose for money from the get go. With Mars in your career sector until 3rd January, this gives you a chance in the very early days of the month to steer this professional year in a lucrative direction from the get go. The Moon will leave your income sector on 2nd January but will come full circle from 27th January to 30th January, this time to find Venus here. This could be some potentially lucrative days.
