The New Year opens with the life giving Sun in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, which puts relationships on the front burner in your professional life. You may have to deal with bossy or demanding people who are very difficult to satisfy. With sociable Venus moving backward in this intimate part of your chart until January 31, stepping lightly around these individuals will probably be more effective than confronting them head on. Of course, if you've reached the limits of your tolerance and are willing to leave your current job, then standing up and fighting for yourself makes sense. Just remember, though, that these are volatile times that can produce more dramatic events than you expect.
The Capricorn New Moon on January 1 is a ticking time bomb of confrontation, secrecy, rebellion and surprise that builds pressure which can lead to shocking outcomes. But it also starts a 28-day lunar cycle that is a period of transformation sparked by original thinking and bold moves. A key to cashing in on the positive side of this pattern is planning. The higher you aim or the further you go out of the box the more grounded you need to be. Walking up a little hill doesn't even require decent shoes, but climbing a steep mountain demands training and the best equipment you can get.
You should start breathing more easily, though, on January 18 when the Sun enters airy Aquarius and your visionary 9th House of Travel and Higher Mind to inspire you with a grander vision of your future.
