Q: Ms Sagittarius asks “When might I become successful and gain financial abundance?” (Birth Data supplied)
A: Your two money planets - Jupiter (ruling your 2nd House) and Mercury (ruling your 8th House) - are in the signs of their detriment. This can show low vitality around money. It doesn’t mean you can’t be successful or create abundance, but you may need to work a little harder at it.
Where possible, avoid frivolous spending (like impulse purchases), being overly generous with friends/loved ones and indulging any tendency to buy two of things.

The modality around money for you is mutable, which is a fluctuating energy. This suggests that over the course of your life you’ll have periods of abundance, and periods where cash flow is tight. Creating structure will help, though part of celebrating the diversity that is life is appreciating the ebb and flow.
In terms of current cycles, the entry of Jupiter into Leo in July 2014, which is your 10th House of Career (Whole Signs), can be a time of professional growth and abundance. This cycle continues until August 2015. Use this time to widely promote your talents, or to explore a leadership opportunity. Work related travel or study may also be possible.
In addition, Neptune in Pisces is squaring your Sun in Sagittarius (mid 2013 and from February 2014 – January 2015). Neptune can bring a confusing yet creative energy. Neptune’s fluid influence may mean money flows out of your life as quickly as it flows in. Try to create financial strategies that honour the idea of a dam – i.e. an investment product or regular savings plan through which you can siphon away some of your money before it washes away.
With your progressed Moon in Scorpio (until May 2015) you are certainly ready to dig into your deeper motivations, and explore any old money issues you may be carrying. Money can be power so use this cycle to work out what drives you – and what will help you reclaim control of your finances.
