Monthly Money Horoscopes - May 2019
The focus will always be on income matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your income sector. Until leaving on 21st May, the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options, as he does at this time every year. Having returned over Easter, this is something you are already getting a read on and as a result, you begin the month aware that something has shifted or that something different is in play. That something is the fact that for the first time in eight decades, the Sun returned to align with Uranus here. While Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned for a few months last year, he returned during the Sun's final days and left a few months later. However, during the time that Uranus was here last year, he spent over a month aligned with Saturn in your career sector, forging a strong relationship between the two. This was a relationship Uranus was able to pick up on when he returned in March, which the Sun is now shining the solar spotlight on. The Sun's focus is on 'what is' while Uranus is constantly looking outside the square, focused on what could be. Their alignment in the Sun's early days already means you are moving into May more enlightened and aware of new possibilities. However, it is not until Mercury returns on 7th May that you will have the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, while Venus won't return to bring the laws of attraction into play until 15th May. As Uranus works through the laws of synchronicity, as he teams up with Venus here for the first time in eight decades, this could create unexpected income developments in the second half of the month. This is after a New Moon on 5th May, which while it will still offer the potential for new beginnings and opportunities it might be more a case of committing to a sense of what's possible than anything specific.
The dynamics of your financial year began to shift in the second half of March but completely shifted last month and by that I mean the balance of power between your two money houses. Taken as a whole, 2019 is a year where the main focus is on your financial sector and therefore on money matters as a whole. This is the area of your chart that focuses on what you do with the money you have and with lucky Jupiter here until December, this is an important year for taking your financial power back. However, in his first full month in retrograde motion, Jupiter has moved into review mode and money matters are no longer proactive. This was always going to happen, with Jupiter spending the middle four months of 2019 in retrograde motion and this leaves a gap when it comes to forward focus and movement. And there to fill that gap before Jupiter even turned retrograde is Mars, who returned to your income sector in March. Until Jupiter turned retrograde last month they were both competing for ground ahead and your focus on where you are going, but as Jupiter turned back, Mars was able to surge forward. The month begins with Mars and Jupiter moving into opposition and this might create some financial tension in the first week of the month. However, this is more a case of sorting out the boundary lines between money coming in and money going out. As Jupiter retreats back Mars will surge forward and until leaving your income sector on 16th May will continue to fuel your warrior spirit. Mars is on a mission to see you fight for what you deserve and to do that he has to smash through glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind. Mars is free to leave all that splintered glass on the ground and thoughts of what you're going to do once you have pushed through boundaries because back up is on the way. Just four days after Mars leaves the Sun and Mercury will both return on 21st May. As the solar spotlight shifts onto your income situation, matters and options, Mercury's smart head for money will kick in.
While there is no evidence of it, to begin with, the balance of power in this financial year is shifting and by mid month the shift will be complete. With the lunar nodes in your two money houses from November 2018 to May 2020, a balance between money coming in and money going out is being policed. However, when you work to balance a pendulum it is often a case that things have to swing too far one way and then the other way, before eventually finding the middle ground. Until now the pendulum has swung too far towards money matters as a whole, with the focus more on what you are doing with the money you have. While you have the North Node in your income sector, with no planets here, all the weight was on money going out. Things started to shift a little to the income side of the scale in the latter part of last month. However, as she is only an asteroid Juno doesn't have much weight. Yet as the queen of commitment, this has seen a new sense of resolve kick in. The balance of power is shifting and it began with Pluto and Saturn's retrograde turns in your financial sector in the final days of April. They are not conceding any ground, but as a five month review phase begins, Saturn and Pluto retreat back in order to spend more time back at the drawing board. This month will see the pendulum not only shift to the income side of the scale but in a way that will have dramatic implications over the coming months. It begins with Mars' return to your income sector on 16th May, for the first time in nearly two years. Returning seven weeks before a total solar eclipse and its potential for major new beginnings and opportunities, Mars is the perfect planet to lead this new charge. Over the coming months, Mars will be joined by the Sun, Mercury and Venus, who will continue what he is able to start. Mars returns with the confidence and warrior spirit needed to start fighting for what you deserve.
There is no planetary activity in either of your two money houses this month and this means that the year has reverted back to its normal pattern. Last year you not only had the North Node in your income sector and the South Node in your financial sector until November, but Mars spent the middle months of the year firing up money matters. In mid 2018, Mars returned to your financial sector, retrograded back out and returned for a second visit, all the while connecting with the South Node and its focus on the past. With Mars in retrograde motion for much of that time, this may have stirred old financial ghosts or issues. Yet what you don't appreciate is that you are now free to benefit from what was exposed and the housekeeping this forced you to confront. This means that while there is no planetary activity in either of your two money houses until the first planets begin arriving in your income sector later next month, you have a clean start. The Sun, Mars, Venus and Mercury will all move through your income sector in the middle months of the year, turning the tables on last year completely. This also gives you a chance to focus more on getting job and career matters prepared for the lucrative months ahead. And with Venus, the planet of money in your career sector until 15th May and lucky Jupiter spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, there is plenty of support for that. In the meantime, with no planetary activity in either of your two money houses, this makes the Moon's visits to both more important. The Moon will move through your income sector from 11th May to 13th May and the timing couldn't be more perfect. With Venus leaving your career sector on 16th May, the Moon will ensure your nose for money is sharp during the final days of her mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your financial sector from 24th May to 26th May will be a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping.
On face value, this is a quiet month financially and in reality that is the case, but there are subtle undercurrents that are cause for confidence on both the income and financial fronts. Held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus was late to return to your financial sector this year and didn't return until after the Sun had already taken the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters. At the same time, his retrograde turn here in March mean Mercury couldn't leave and was here when Venus returned. Mercury finally left just a few days before Easter and Venus over Easter weekend. This allows you to start the month with a smart head for money and a clear mandate, but without a need to over think things. With dreamy Neptune here all year but with Chiron gone, you're able to focus on the financial dream without being confronted or weighed down by old financial ghosts and demons, as you were in the past. The month begins with the Moon in your financial sector and while it will leave on 1st May, it allows you to begin the month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. The Moon will come full circle, with a chance to regroup from 26th May to 29th May. Meanwhile, it is on the income front that nothing and everything is happening. Nothing because there is no planetary activity in your income sector, but everything because of what you are preparing for. The most lucrative months of 2019 don't begin until the second half of the year, but when they do they will be significant. With Mars making this first visit to income sector in nearly two years, he will lead a charge that will leave a trail of shattered glass in his wake, as he bulldozes his way through glass ceilings. While this is still several months away, this is something you are already preparing for. It is the planetary activity on the job and career fronts this month that is all about getting your professional ducks in a row ahead of the income potential ahead. The Moon's visit to your income sector from 13th May to 15th May will sharpen your nose for money while giving the forces in play on the job and career fronts a lucrative sense of direction.
While the Sun left your financial sector just before Easter and the solar spotlight is no longer on your financial situation and money matters that doesn't mean things have run their course. Instead, the very opposite is true. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus was late to return, while Mercury was held back by his own retrograde phase in March. With both Venus and Mercury late to arrive and therefore late to leave, they're able to stay on after the Sun is gone to take care of business. And that business is updating your financial expectations, game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Until leaving on 7th May, Mercury is giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, make smart financial choices, decisions, plans and define your financial game plan and resolutions for the coming year. If Mercury's focus is on the 'when, where and how' then Venus' focus is on the 'what'. Until leaving your financial sector on 15th May Venus will continue to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations. If Mercury's job is to leave you with a financial game plan and resolutions, then Venus' job is to leave you with a wish list. Venus will still be here when the Moon returns to your income sector on 15th May, coming full circle from not just one Full Moon here but two over the last two months. Venus will leave before the Moon can move into opposition and here until 17th May, this first visit that isn't a Full Moon since February is ripe with potential and possibilities. It is when the Moon comes full circle from a Full Moon that the things triggered then can come to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point. Last month's Full Moon kicked the ball back into play after a Full Moon the month before, with everything coming home to roost between 15th May and 17th May. And with Mars in your career sector until 16th May the timing couldn't be better.
The focus will always be on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your financial sector. Always has and always will. Yet the fact that the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options is about the only thing that you can consider the norm, with the Sun having returned to find everything you might want and nothing you don't. Last year, when the Sun, Mercury and Venus moved through Jupiter was on the other side of the sky in your income sector, creating tension between the two. With Jupiter gone by all that income potential banked, the Sun and any other planets moving through your financial sector this year have a clear run. Yet the Sun returned over Easter to find that Mars had left just three weeks earlier and that paths and trails had already been forged. For the first time in eight decades, the Sun also returned to find Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected here, opening your mind to a whole new way of looking at things. Mars began the push to start taking your financial power back but it is now in full bloom. A New Moon on 5th May is a chance for new beginnings and opportunities and to commit to financial intentions and resolutions, but with Mercury and Venus yet to return this is premature. Mercury won't return with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game until 7th May and Venus won't return to nail down what you're striving for until 15th May. As the planet of money but also the planet that rules through the laws of attraction, Venus will quickly team up with Uranus, who works through the laws of synchronicity. This could create some unexpected developments in the second half of the month. Venus and Uranus will continue to work together after the Sun and Mercury leave on 21st May.
While the dynamics of this financial year have shifted it is not a permanent shift and more that it suits the money gods focused on income matters to take a back seat for a few months. With Jupiter in your income sector until December this is still the main focus for the money gods this year, but with Jupiter in his first full month in retrograde motion, there is a chance to move into review mode. Jupiter will spend the middle four months of 2019 in retrograde motion and until turning direct in August, will slowly and quietly retrace his steps. While this is giving you access to untapped income potential, there is no urgency. The Moon's visit to your income sector from 6th May to 8th May will be a valuable chance to check in. This gives money matters, which are only active for a few months this year, a chance to make the most of the quiet patch on the income front. Mars has already begun this, with his return to your financial sector at the end of March and his position here until 16th May. Knowing that the Sun and Mercury are returning on 21st May, to turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters and give you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, this frees Mars to focus on the 'what' and not the 'when, where and how'. And the 'what' is anything that your financial passions and fighting spirit draw you towards and brings a chance to take your financial power back. Your financial sector is focused on money matters as a whole and usually that means what you do with the money you have. From debt to spending, from investment to looking for new financial opportunities, if it excites you and gives you a chance to take your financial power back, Mars gives you the courage and confidence to go after it. Knowing the Sun and Mercury will return to usher in a more objective phase just four days after he leaves, this frees Mars from having to focus on the follow through.
It is not so much that the dynamics of this financial year have shifted and more that they are shifting and is something that is still happening. It began in the final days of April when both Saturn and Pluto turned retrograde in your income sector. In Saturn's case, it was literally in the final hours of the month, with the first day of May also his first full day in retrograde motion here. With both in retrograde motion for the next five months, until now dominant income forces are taking a break. With the lunar nodes in your two money houses from November 2018 to May 2020, the end game is to have the right balance between money coming in and money going out. However, that was easier said than done when all the planets were in your income sector and there were none in your financial sector. While the power shift won't really be felt until Mars returns to your financial sector on 16th May, preparations began last month, during Pluto and Saturn's final days in direct motion in your income sector. This is when the asteroid Juno returned to your financial sector, giving you a secret weapon. While only an asteroid, Juno literally doesn't have the weight to shift the needle onto money matters in the way that Mars will. However, as the queen of commitment, Juno is quietly fuelling a new sense of resolve to take your financial power back, when you get a chance. Small though she might be, apart from the Moon this is the first cosmic body to return to your financial sector since the North Node returned last November. By the time Mars returns to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and to begin the fight to take your financial power back on 16th May, chances are you have already formed new financial resolutions. You might not know the where or the how, but you are starting to get a sense of the 'what'. Mars is here until early July and with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all moving through during the middle months of the year, while income forces are sleeping, money matters will seize their moment to become a priority. This puts the focus less on money coming in and more on what you do with the money you have.
With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses this year there is a lot more focus on the Moon's visits to both, with each important for different reasons. The first is the Moon's visit to your financial sector from 11th May to 13th May. Apart from the Moon's monthly visits and a total lunar eclipse here in January, there has been no focus on money matters this year. As your financial sector is focused on what you do with the money you have, this is something you have had to do on your own. However, with the first planet reaching your financial sector next month and then the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus all moving through in the middle months of the year, the Moon's monthly visits have become more important. These are the waypoints that allow you to check in and as the Moon fuels your financial instincts and imagination, you're able to pick up on the valuable clues, hunches and insights that can keep you going until the next waypoint, four weeks later. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, but your mind and your options open between 11th May and 13th May. Meanwhile, the Moon's monthly visits to your income sector are just as important, though for different reasons and this month the timing couldn't be better. The last planet only left your income sector in late March and with a huge amount of planetary activity and focus on income matters last year, there is a lot of untapped income potential. Especially as the South Node only left in November. With no more planetary activity here until Venus returns just before Christmas, this is a chance to look back and to check in to the lucrative sense of direction already established. The Moon will do that when it moves through your income sector from 24th May to 26th May, returning just nine days after Venus, the planet of money returns to your work sector on 15th May. Venus was the last planet that left at the end of March, so she is the planet that the Moon is reaching back to get a read on. More importantly, this will sharpen your nose for money as Venus is working to steer work and job matters in a lucrative direction.
This is a relatively quiet month for the money gods and that suits you just fine. With the first planet to reach your financial sector this year not returning until August, it is too soon to reinvent the wheel financially. For now, the Moon's monthly visits to your financial sector are enough in terms of staying on top of any financial housekeeping and for checking in for any updates. Your financial sector is focused on money matters as a whole so is more about what you do with the money you have. With the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus all returning in the second half of the year, starting with Mars return, you can afford to wait until then. This gives you a chance to let things settle on the income front, where this year's active months have literally just run their course. It began with Mars' return to your income sector in the final six weeks of 2018 and since then the Sun, Mercury and Venus have moved through. A retrograde phase kept Mercury and his smart head for money here for over two months, instead of the two weeks he will normally spend here. Mercury didn't leave until just before Easter while Venus, held back by a retrograde phase last year didn't leave until Easter weekend itself. By the time you move into the new month, Venus has only been gone for 10 days and you are still processing literally months of planetary activity. It was during that time that Chiron, the planet of healing left in February, leaving dreamy Neptune on his own for the first time since returning in 2012. Unlike your financial sector, where there is only planetary activity at certain times of the year, with Neptune in your income sector until 2026, the last few months have been the push to get things up to speed, where he can then maintain them. This is why you don't want to be distracted by financial housekeeping. Neptune and all the untapped income potential he is now the custodian for will get a boost from Mars' return to your work sector on 16th May, giving this professional year its first real shot in the arm.
The Sun's departure from your income sector over Easter ended a tumultuous visit or at least the early and latter days were. Because the Sun spends a month in your income sector each year and the Moon returns to your financial sector every four weeks, it is a given that at some point this will put them into opposition, creating a Full Moon. It is impossible not to have a Full Moon in your financial sector at some point during the Sun's month long visit. Halfway between the Sun's last focus on money matters and the next, this Full Moon gives money matters a much needed boost, while pressure on the Sun in your income sector can provide some wakeup calls and motivations. However, for the first time in 58 years, there was not one but two Full Moons, one in the Sun's first and the other in his last full day. Mercury returned just days before the second Full Moon, so was on hand with the smart head for money needed to see through the fog of war and better use this to your advantage. Held back by a retrograde phase Venus didn't return until a day after the Sun and Moon left, managing to avoid the Full Moon altogether. As you move into the new month Venus and Mercury are still here, still working to capitalise on everything both the Sun and two Full Moons have exposed. Until Mercury leaves on 7th May you have his smart head for money to work with, able to make smart choices, decisions and plans or just keep your head in the game. Until she leaves on 15th May Venus, the planet of money will continue to fuel your confidence, which is key to working with the laws of attraction that she is responsible for. As you can't attract what you don't feel you deserve, Venus' main job is to fuel your confidence and even a sense of entitlement. Fortunately, with the support of lucky Jupiter in your career sector, that shouldn't be too hard. The Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon from 15th May to 17th May, but Venus will be gone before they have a chance to clash.
