Don't allow feelings of insecurity about money to harsh your New Year optimism. A Full Moon on January 4 may hit you in your wallet, but if this happens, understand that you're better off knowing about it sooner rather than later. If a source of income dries up early in the New Year it's a blessing in disguise, because you'll have the drive needed to pick yourself up and figure out a plan. In most cases, things won't be as dismal. What's more likely to happen is a newfound awareness about money, and what needs to happen in order to create the financial security you want. Awareness is GOOD. It allows you to make changes that will ultimately put you in a better position.
On January 12 you'll receive an incredible push to make things happen in the career department. Mars will enter your 10th House of Profession and remains there until February 19. This is a once-every-two-years event that gives you tremendous drive and impetus to initiate anything you've always wanted to professionally. Now is the time to launch that business or reach for a promotion. Be assertive -- it will take you far! Venus enters this same area of your chart on January 27, helping you to be as charming as possible to higher-ups. Use it!
A New Moon on January 20 will fall in your 9th House of Mind Expansion. You might consider traveling abroad or signing up for a certification course or other educational pursuit you've been thinking about. Remain patient if you experience any delays or frustrating setbacks. The very next day, on January 21, Mercury will turn retrograde in the same area of your chart. You'll have to revise your plans as you go along, but ultimately this will help polish them. Ideas will shine after February 11, and so will your mind.
