Pride in your work is important in January because you may not get all the recognition you'd like during the first half of the month. The Sun in stern Capricorn is in your 6th House of Employment until January 19, which is more about developing your skills and taking care of business than getting attention. But if you concentrate on the tasks in front of you now, it will build confidence and competence that will pay off later.
In fact, the Capricorn New Moon in this service-oriented part of your chart on January 11th is significant to your job. It could mean more responsibilities in your current situation, maybe even a promotion, or the realization that your interests and ambitions are limited in your current line of work. If you're considering a change of career, this would be a good time to think about the steps needed to make this possible. What kind of training and experience would be required to launch you into another field?
On January 19, the Sun will enter Aquarius and move out of the bottom half of your chart. This is positive for gaining the support of innovative people or reaching out to make new connections. Bringing fresh ideas forward and coming across with renewed inspiration are great ways to get a job if you're looking or to gain partners and allies in your current situation. Cooperation and originality are the primary elements that will help you raise your status or go public with a product or project.
