Expect some excitement on the job this month. The New Year opens with a New Moon in normally staid Capricorn that's rocked by stressful connections with intense planets. Rebellious Uranus, impatient Mars and provocative Pluto combine to complicate matters. This big event occurs in your 5th House of Self-Expression and will color your world until January 30. The good news is that your creativity and willingness to take public risks is likely to increase.
Breaking out of old patterns in terms of sharing your ideas could get you more attention. But if you're unwilling to take chances in how you communicate concepts and present yourself to others, finding outlets for play in your personal life can inspire some bright ideas and potential breakthroughs. This is also a signal to put more fun into your work life by thinking outside the box. The solar shift into your 6th House of Employment occurs on January 19, initiating a month long period of innovation in what you do and how you do it. You may be challenged by dealing with different systems or by having to cooperate with individuals whose methods contrast with your own. Stay friendly, open and curious and you could become even more stimulated by your work.
Your efficiency will be high on January 24, making this a very productive day. It's important, though, to be tolerant of people who lack your capacity for and commitment to work. Leading by example will be more effective than telling others what they're doing wrong.
