There is a real contradiction in what the stars are telling you this month, but little or no conflict. January is destined to be a stunning month for income, work and career matters, with an explosion of potential across all three fronts. Yet you also begin the year with a strong mix of playful and adventurous forces in play, that seem oblivious to what is happening professionally. If the stars think you can have it all, then maybe you can, especially if you master a balance between work and play. Fortunately, you start the month with the Moon, Venus and Ceres in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. While Mars will not only leave an adventurous part of your chart on New Year’s Day but return to your career sector, on both the playful and adventurous fronts there is back up. That will remain the case even after Venus leaves and returns to your work sector on 8th January, just as Mars is firing things up on the career front. A total lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January will act as a trigger for potential that has been building across the income, work and career fronts for years. January is a month when the focus is always on your relationships, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks in your relationship sector. However, for the first time in 17 years, you begin the year with the North Node in Cancer and it is here all year. This is already policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Mercury, the planet of communication’s return to your relationship sector on 5th January will go a long way towards ensuring the communication lines are open, ahead of a solar eclipse here on 6th January.
