Family and other personal relationships are prone to difficulties this month, especially around the time of the January 4 Moon (solar eclipse) in Capricorn, your solar seventh house. Conflict and controversy could erupt at any time with Mars also in Capricorn, and it will be tough to find common ground. The biggest challenge, however, may be to discover the root cause. Stay calm and consider it a learning experience. Like a shining star, the January 19 Moon lights up your sign with energy and initiative. The Moon is also favorably aligned with lucky Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces, your solar ninth house, making this period a good choice for vacation or business travel. You could make a fortunate connection with someone while out of town or attending class that week. Be cautious, though, if you meet someone online. As stressful as some relationships will be this month, others will be pure delight, particularly around the time of the Moon. Listen closely when someone offers advice and encourages you to view your life and current situation from a different perspective. You’ll find wisdom in the words even if you don’t necessarily like hearing them. You’re in luck! Jupiter spreads its good fortune to your career sector when it enters Aries, your solar tenth house, on the 22nd. Make every day count because you’ll only have a little more than four months to make the most of this beneficial influence. To get things started off right, Venus will be in Sagittarius, your solar sixth house of daily work, from January 7 on. Make your presence known!
