If you've been wishing for love, you may suddenly find yourself in the company of a smart new friend. If you've been hoping for (and working toward) major progress at work, a new love could pop up from out of nowhere. If you want to grapple with a big family issue, your career could take off in a brand-new direction. All this means is that though you can't always get what you want, you sometimes get a generous replacement.
It's amazing what you've done, you know that? On Monday, people are thoroughly impressed. And they keep talking about you in glowing terms through midweek. The weird thing about your sudden celebrity is that you never expected it: You were just going along in the world, getting stuff done and being you, and before you knew it you found yourself at the center of this social circle. Toward the end of the week, it's only natural that you're going to want to have some alone time, just to figure everything out. Plan your next move. And make some sense of what's going on in your love life.
A Capricorn Venus-Pluto-Sun trio can help you switch gears from negative to positive on January 9, especially if you’re willing to keep an open mind. This combination exudes everything from warm loving feelings to strong personal power and beyond, so being able to stay flexible and go with whatever the moment provides is imperative to staying productive.
The great communicator Mercury is also in strict Capricorn as it merges with constrictive Saturn on the twelfth, so things get real serious real fast. Following the rules might not be the most fun, but coloring outside the lines (willfully) has its own set of unpleasant consequences. Mercury then merges with murky Pluto on January 24, when it could be amusing to hide in the shadows and see what people say about you when they think you aren’t around. Playing games on your own can be fun, but eventually, you’ll need to let someone else in on the rules.
The friendly Aquarius sun trines the airy Gemini moon on the twenty-seventh, creating a balancing effect. You can finally have some relaxed “ah” moments, when it’s nice to sit back and watch everything start to come together.
