Libra Horoscope: January 2015

Breaking the tension

If you're experiencing career tension near the Full Moon on January 4, take a deep breath. The universe is not conspiring to make your New Year miserable. In fact it's quite the opposite. If you're having difficulty in professional matters, it's obvious that a change is warranted. Perhaps you have kept quiet about what has troubled you about your boss, or you have tried to sweep things under the rug because you worry about your job security. Whatever the details, it simply doesn't matter. It's time to be honest with yourself about where you are career-wise, and how well it does -- or doesn't -- match up to where you really want to be.

Fortunately, after January 12 you'll have tremendous stamina and courage to make changes in how you do your job, and in your work environment. Mars will enter your 6th House of Work, and will remain in this part of your chart until February 19. Now, you'll stop worrying about ignoring the red flags in any contentious work relationships simply to keep the peace. You'll have essential arguments, get things out in the open and, if necessary, lay down the law on how things must change in order for you to do your job. If you have decided to change jobs due to an untenable work environment, you'll have your best luck for a lateral move after January 27 when Venus joins Mars in your work sector. Then, you'll combine motivation with a more harmonizing influence. Also, this might be when you make peace with your current position -- if that is still possible.

A New Moon on January 20 will turn your attention to romance. If single, it's possible that a love affair is on the horizon. Mercury turns retrograde in the same part of your chart the next day, though, and you might be confused about how to proceed. Take it slow...
