Dear Gemini, this is your money horoscope for 2017:
For the majority of the year it is going to be business as usual and that means having the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters from the get go. It is an inescapable reality for you that the Sun will always spend the later days and the first three weeks of each year in your financial sector. With December over the most expensive month of any year, while others may go weeks into the New Year before reality hits home, for you it hits home before Christmas. In terms of what you can normally expect in the early weeks of each year, things are fairly low key this year. Venus and Mars both moved through in the final months of 2016, allowing you to move into the New Year with your financial resolutions and aspirations already banked. You will move into the New Year with Mercury in your financial sector, so with the smart head for money needed to have your head in the game from the get go, but he will retrograde back out from the 4th January to the 12th January. This is just eight days, but it will give you a chance to get your head out of the game for a few days and then, when he returns from the 12th January to the 7th February you’ll have a fresh perspective, ready to finalise your financial game plan for the coming year. With Pluto in your financial sector from 2008 to 2016 things will never completely go off the boil, with the planet of change and revolution keeping the wheels turning throughout the year. It is not until the 20th December, just two days before the Sun’s return on the 22nd December, that things move to a whole new level, with Saturn’s return. Returning in the final days of the year and then not leaving until December 2020, this is more something that will come into effect next year, but a major period of financial growth will begin. In the meantime, while money matters will continue on a slow burn throughout the year, income matters are on a much shorter fuse. There isn’t a moment of 2017 where the focus isn’t on money matters to some degree or other, while income opportunities have a window of opportunity that runs from the 4th June to the 26th August. There is a short and sharp period of income opportunities, a smash and grab if you like, but dominating the middle months of the year there are plenty of opportunities within that time. Mars is making his first visit to your income sector in two years and Ceres her first visit in four years. The money gods will free up every available money god to make the period from the 4th June to the 26th August as lucrative as possible, with the first six and the last four weeks likely to be the most profitable.
