Leo Career Horoscope for January 2014

Push your ideas out there

Although there are some shaky astrological patterns that could get the year off to an unstable start, buckling down and mastering details is your primary task during the first 18 days of January. The Sun, your energizing ruling planet, is in serious Capricorn and your 6th House of Employment until then and you can use this powerful force to plan your climb up the professional ladder. But pushing too hard too fast is not a great idea. Recommitting yourself to take your skills to the highest level and modestly putting in the effort without expecting immediate rewards is the smart way to go. If you're not happy in your current line of work, seeking training in another field is worth serious consideration. 

The sensitive Cancer Full Moon on January 15 falls in your 12th House of Secrets, leaving you feeling like an outsider. Yet if you are a bit detached from your work, it's an opportunity to think about making a change. On January 19 the Sun shifts into friendly Aquarius and your 7th House of Partners, marking a period when you're more likely to be noticed and appreciated by others. 

Reaching out to make new connections or to strengthen current alliances is has a good chance to meet with success. Going public with a plan or seeking new employment is also favored then. Unusual individuals who seem off putting at first might be surprisingly good professional partners. Keep an open mind about people instead of quickly rejecting someone who's a bit quirky.
