This is an excellent time to think about your work. A New Moon in Capricorn on January 1 explodes in your 6th House of Employment, which can lead to sudden changes that can shake you with worry or excite you with fresh possibilities. Be bold and creative by making strong decisions in January with this volatile start to the New Year. The heroic side of your personality may fight hard to hold onto what you've got, but if you let yourself think out of the box, you may get a very different picture of your professional future that encourages you to try something different.
Alluring Venus' conjunction with the Sun on January 11 reminds you of how valuable and attractive you are. If people don't see that now, putting in effort to show your worth will prove it to them later. New connections start coming more easily when chatty Mercury enters Aquarius and your 7th House of Others later that day. You could attract highly intelligent individuals who simulate your mind but want to play by their own rules. The Sun's shift into Aquarius and your 7th House of Relationships on January 19 gives you more power in partnerships. This is also a strong signal for going public with a project or reaching out to make new connections.
Your mind is likely to be cooking up original ideas with these transits in unconventional Aquarius. But if you do encounter an obstacle or delay on January 25 when Mercury squares restrictive Saturn, it shouldn't hold you back for long. The Sun's smart sextile with Uranus on January 29 inspires you with a touch of genius and a sparkle that demands attention.
Keep in Mind this Month
It's safer and more likely to earn you money and satisfaction when you're excited about your work than when you're bogged down with boredom on the job.
