Virgo Forecast for 2018: Money
The most important factor in this financial year is what isn’t here. The last two years have been dominated by the conflict between Uranus in your financial sector and Jupiter in your income sector. From December 2016 to September 2017, they had moved into opposition three times and with Eris in your financial sector as well, financial tension and conflict between income and financial forces had become the norm. Or at least it had been since Jupiter returned to your income sector in September 2016 and only really ran its course when Mars left in December 2017. The fact that you start the year with no planetary activity on the income front is good news for both income and money matters. With Uranus turning direct in your financial sector on the 3rd January, this will allow for a trouble free financial turnaround, with a chance for a fresh start to this financial year. While this will leave you with no planets in play on the income front, as 16 months of activity only ran its course in December, there is more than enough momentum. In addition, income matters will get their turn in the second half of the year.
However, a Full Moon in your income sector on the 1st April, the first since lucky Jupiter left, could trigger some unexpected income developments. The early months of the year belong to money matters and with Uranus leaving on the 16th May, this is a chance to bring together everything he has been working towards since he returned in 2010. Mercury, who normally moves through your financial sector in 15 days, is here from the 6th March to the 14th May, thanks to a retrograde phase from the 23rd March to the 15th April. With Uranus leaving two days after Mercury, you will have his smart head for money to work with during his final months. Uranus will be back from the 7th November 2018 to the 6th March, but only to tie up loose ends. More importantly, Uranus will be gone from your financial sector from the 16th May to the 7th November. With the most lucrative months of the year on the income front running from the 7th August to the 3rd December, much of that will be spent without Uranus in opposition, something that last happened in 2009. What is important about this time is that Venus, the planet of money will make two visits to your income sector this year. The 24 to 25 days that Venus spends in your income sector each year are always the most potentially lucrative. This year Venus will move through from the 7th August to the 9th September, only to return for a double dip visit from the 1st November to the 3rd December. Venus is the only planet still in your income sector when Uranus returns to your financial sector, with their opposition more likely to keep both sides on their toes.
