Venus will be in the home-and-family-loving sign of Cancer, highlighting your solar second house of cash until the 25th. You may need to shell out some money towards a home- or child-related matter, and it looks like there’s no way around it. If possible, take care of any unique financial obligations before the 12th when Mercury, your ruling planet, turns retrograde in Virgo. With generous Jupiter about to move into your sixth house of daily work and lifestyle in two months, now is the time to start thinking about the direction of your career and to make sure that your finances work for you versus the other way around. In other words, you’re too smart to work hard at reaching your financial goals. Instead, grab that one big money-making idea and prepare a solid plan now so you’re ready to enact it before year’s end.
