Things are not usually active on either side of the financial fence in January and while there is a lot more weight on money than on income matters than is usually the case, what is helping to balance the scales is what is happening professionally. From the very start, this allows you to move into this financial year with confidence and with all signs pointing to a big year on both fronts. It was just before Christmas that Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returned to your financial sector after retrograding back out less than eight weeks earlier. However, the planet that returned was not the same planet that left at the end of October. Not only is Jupiter back in direct motion but with the five months he had already spent here under his belt, he is ready to get on with what he came here to do, which is to promote financial growth and expansion. While still moving fairly slowly after his direct turn, Jupiter will have his foot on the gas until leaving in May, picking up speed as he goes and next month with support from Venus, the planet of money as well. It is the dwarf planet Eris' direct turn on 12th January that will remove the final brake holding things back while the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment's return on 13th January will give you a whole new sense of resolve.
Meanwhile, while the dwarf planet Ceres is a mere minnow compared to Jupiter, the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system, what she lacks in size and influence she more than makes up for by who she is hanging out with. Ceres returned to your income sector just before Christmas as well, beginning her first deep dive into your income needs and priorities in four years. What gives this a lot more influence is that she has joined forces with Mars, who will turn direct in your career sector on 13th January and Saturn, now in his final months in your work sector. Ceres' sense of where the money is and of your income needs and priorities will be something that Venus, the planet of money will draw on when she returns to your work sector on 3rd January.
