After what seemed like an endless transit of assertive Mars moving through Aries, he'll finally move into slow and steady Taurus on January 6.

The stakes are high in love and you won't let go of a love connection very easily -- not after all the work you put into it!
A New Moon in Capricorn on January 13 is great for making career moves, while the Full Moon in Leo on January 28 encourages you to express your heartfelt emotions. Do you love someone? Say it.
The Sun will be in alignment with Saturn in Aquarius on January 23, helping to ground your sense of social consciousness so you can bring workable solutions into your community or a humanitarian endeavor you're a part of. Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius on January 30, suggesting that this might need some tweaking next month, but you'll certainly be on top of it.
