Your ambitions are supported by a strong impulse to learn this month. The life-giving Sun is in practical Capricorn and your 9th House of Higher Mind until January 19 where it provides you with a platform to fulfill your aspirations. There are two key elements required to make this happen. The first is a willingness to explore unfamiliar intellectual territory by setting aside your prejudices and broadening your perspective. The second is to be persistent in your intellectual pursuits because ideas that seem undecipherable at first will make sense if you don't give up too soon.
Relationships tell a very different story now with your romantic ruling planet running in reverse until January 31. This retrograde period tends to make it more challenging to initiate new partnerships. However, it's an excellent period to rethink, reassess and repair existing alliances or to readjust you expectations if you're single and looking. The Full Moon in sensitive Cancer on January 15 lands in your 3rd House of Communication where it can flood you with feelings that aren't easy to describe. The good news is that even attempting to discuss emotional issues can supply you with unexpected answers that help you to put the past behind you.
The Sun enters quirky Aquarius and your 10th House of Career on January 19 to pile more responsibilities on your professional plate. You might be dealing with undisciplined people or working on new projects for which there are no formal procedures. You're going to have to be creative and flexible enough to make adjustments on the fly to take advantage of opportunities at work.
Keep in Mind this Month
It's better to be curious, to ask questions, and to think outside the box than to act like you already know all the right answers.

January 16: Competition or Cooperation
Your interactions with others can turn competitive when Venus makes a stressful square to combative Mars. Even your closest allies may behave in less than supportive ways, but this sexy transit can also revive excitement in a current partnership or provide the passion to connect with someone new.
