Leo Forecast for 2020: Money
The fact that this year is a fairly typical financial year is good news because much of what this year will bring is a known quantity and to a degree is business as usual. There will be no surprises, no unseen challenges and on the financial front in particular, a steady as she goes approach. Unlike your income sector, where the focus is on earned income or literally on 'in coming' money, your financial sector is more focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. Here you have had dreamy Neptune since 2012 and as he is here until 2026, he will continue to support your financial dreams. For the most part Neptune operates in the background but becomes more active when the faster planets move through, usually starting with the Sun's return in February. However, Venus' return on 14th January will give things a head start and in a special way.
Returning so early in the year, Venus will be gone by the time that the Sun turns the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters on 19th February and shifts things to a more objective focus. Until she leaves on 8th February, this will give Venus and Neptune a chance to work together, with neither the planets of money or dreams focused on reality checks or anything objective. Instead, this is a chance for Venus' financial desires and expectations to merge with Neptune's financial dreams and fantasies, giving the rest of your financial year a sense of direction. With the Sun here until 20th March and Mercury from 16th March to 11th April, this is when the more mundane aspects of setting your new financial year off on the right course happen. Mars will make a standalone visit from 13th May to 28th June, bringing the planets of passion and dreams together.
In the meantime, while Neptune will remain in your financial sector all year and there is a constant focus on money matters, income matters are only active for a few months. This means that a lot has to be packed into a short period of time, making these the most potentially lucrative months of any year. This begins with Mercury's return from 20th August to 6th September, giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. It is just days later that the Sun will return for a month long visit to your income sector, on 23rd August. While the Sun and Mercury will both be gone by 23rd September and these will have been the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year so far, they are in fact not the most lucrative weeks of the year itself. The most lucrative weeks of 2020 will be when Venus, planet of money moves through from 3rd October to 28th October, once again making a standalone visit, separate to the Sun's more objective focus.
