Ambition is bubbling below the surface this month and it's appropriate for you to keep cooking up bigger plans for your professional future. Just don't be in a hurry, because patience and careful preparation are the ingredients you need to eventually achieve your goals. The Sun is in persistent and productive Capricorn in your 4th House of Roots, which is why a steady pace and solidifying your base are priorities now.
If you want to develop new skills or have some creative ideas, get the training you need to develop them fully before making a bold move. You could run into a barrier on January 7 when active Mars is constrained by limiting Saturn. However, if your commitment and self-control are strong enough, you can master major challenges.
The following day, your charming ruling planet Venus enters Capricorn, reinforcing your sense of purpose. January 12 could spring surprises, though, when Venus clashes with shocking Uranus. Relationships may be rattled, but if you're flexible and thinking creatively, an ingenious use of resources and people skills can show off your talent.
Eliminating extraneous activities and associates clears the way to greater efficiency on January 16. There's more wind in your sails as of January 19, when the Sun soars into airy Aquarius and your 5th House of Self-Expression. The line between work and play blurs as you're more likely to have fun on the job. Your social gifts become more evident, making you an excellent presenter of ideas, products and services and a great salesman for yourself.
