Communications snafus are possible all month long. Mercury will station retrograde on January 5, and won't turn direct until January 25. During this time, you may notice more trouble in endeavors related to technology and business. Revise professional goals, but wait until next month to implement any vital plans.
Fortunately, you'll have the will to help you carry out any of those major goals you set for yourself (or even a New Year's resolution). Mars will enter Scorpio on January 3 and remains in this intense sign until March 5. Over these months, you'll feel as if you can accomplish whatever you set out to. Your determination will not allow you to give up!
A gorgeous New Moon in Capricorn on January 9, suggests a solid fresh start connected to ambitions. Remember though -- Mercury will be retrograde and by this time, he'll be retrograde in Capricorn. Before you move forward, it'll be necessary to retrace your steps and look how far you've already come. Or, figure out what went wrong in the past that prevented you from getting to where you want to go.
A Full Moon in Leo on January 23 suggests an open heart. Romance, creativity and pleasure are all on the agenda. Interestingly enough however, love-planet Venus moves into sobering Capricorn on the same day. Whatever fun-filled plans you may have will have a practical tone to them.
Mercury turns direct on January 25 in steadfast Capricorn. Now it's time to push ahead with whatever plans you have that require strategy and authority to execute.
