That the focus is on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your income sector. However, it is not just the amount of planets but the calibre of those planets that make this anything but an ordinary start to the year. But then this was never going to be an ordinary year for income matters and instead, one of your most powerful years ever. With Pluto, the planet of change and revolution in your income sector since 2008 and Saturn, the planet that can give you the power to move mountains here since December 2017, this is already a powerful time for taking your power back on the income front.
Yet even by those standards, the planetary activity that you move into the month with is extraordinary with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion having joined them last month, along with the Sun just before Christmas and Mercury in the closing days of last month. The latter allows you to begin the year with the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and your feet on the ground from the get go.
And just as well because to have Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in your income sector is a once in a lifetime event and with Saturn and Pluto aligning midmonth major breakthroughs are possible.
Yet with Pluto here all year and Jupiter and Saturn until December this is a powerful start to the most powerful income year in over a decade. Mercury will leave on 17th January and the Sun on 21st January but with Mars not returning until February, you won't fully realise just how much potential you have until then. Meanwhile, don't be alarmed if the Moon's return to your financial sector from 9th January to 12th January creates some financial tension or intensity. As well as clashing with every planet in your income sector, this will create a lunar eclipse that will use any pressure as leverage, creating the potential for a breakthrough on both sides of the financial fence.
