Taurus Forecast for 2019: Money
The first question we ask when moving into any new financial year is, will this be a good or a challenging year for money matters? However, as Saturn's three year financial boot camp only ran its course in December 2017, there is a chance you might be afraid to even ask the question. Fortunately, this is one year when the money gods are smiling on you, with lucky Jupiter in your financial sector until 3rd December. While there will be periods within the year that are more active, with Jupiter here for the majority of the year, the whole of 2019 is a journey towards financial growth. It is the three year financial boot camp Saturn put you through, from December 2014 to December 2017, that proves to be a valuable training period.
The push to get this new financial year off the ground is mostly over by the time the year begins, though held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus is late to arrive. Not being part of the annual financial housekeeping that takes place in the final months of any year, Venus' return to your financial sector from 8th January to 4th February is a standalone period. As the planets of money and luck come together, they create an auspicious few weeks for money matters and an auspicious start to this powerful financial year. Throughout the year the journey will continue and you are likely to find that as it does, your definition of financial success transforms and evolves. There will be another push at the end of the year, to bring this financial year home. This will begin with Venus' return on 2nd November and will continue through to the closing days of the year.
Meanwhile, while money matters as a whole are active all year, the fact that income matters are only active for a few months creates an intense and potentially lucrative pocket that you're able to pour all your resources into. With Jupiter in retrograde motion from 11th April to 12th August, this is when money matters will take a backseat, allowing income matters to have their turn. That lucrative period begins with Mars' return to your income sector on 31st March and will continue through to Venus' departure on 4th July. It is the first six and the final four weeks of this period that are set to be the most potentially lucrative. With Jupiter on the other side of the sky in your financial sector, any planet moving through your income sector will move into opposition. However, any financial tension can be used as motivation, increasing the potential to make the period from 31st March to 4th July the most lucrative of the year.
