Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
The full moon on January 1 will see you finishing up a big work assignment. You likely worked hard on it in December, and now it’s ready to sign, seal, and ship. It is done. Whew, just in time to enjoy a glass of champagne to welcome the New Year. You seem to be in the mood for a small and private celebration rather than brave traffic and crowds. Many parts of the world are cold on January 1, so staying in has its distinct advantages, but even if you live in a warm climate, small and private seems to be your preference this year.
If you did not feel well at the end of December because you caught a cold or flu, you are likely to see that you are getting much better as the full moon appears. Fevers break, sore throats clear up, and life seems bright again.
Moving on to another amazingly positive event, January 6, Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, will be conjunct Mars, the energy planet, in a very rare configuration, beaming a floodlight of benefic rays on your career on Saturday, January 6, and you will also feel this aspect on the day prior, on Friday January 5, as the energy builds.
To see how rare this aspect is, although Jupiter meets with Mars every two years, they always meet in a different sign and in a new place in your chart. The last time they met in Scorpio and your prestigious career house, as they are this month on January 5 and January 6, they last met on August 8, 1982. The next time Jupiter and Mars will meet again will be on November 24, 2053. That is not a typo!
Mars and Jupiter will light your house of fame and honors this month on January 5 and January 6, so you will want to take full advantage. This can be a day of enormous professional gratification, so go ahead, have that interview, send a query letter, make a presentation, or launch a new product or advertising campaign. You may now find you are about to add a new client or be given a new assignment that excites you very much.
The following Monday, January 8, the Sun and Jupiter will be perfectly positioned, indicating you can get access to a VIP and have a very successful meeting. Influential people will want to help you, so don’t be shy – speak up.
On Tuesday, January 9, another sweet aspect will pop up, with Venus in ideal angle to Jupiter and Mars. Again, the progress you will see concerns your professional standing, and again, the meeting has to be confidential. Don’t breathe a word of what you are doing this month, for the last thing you need is competition for the job or client you’d like to have for yourself. You seem to have a tiger by its tail – something big is cooking in your life.
The new moon in Capricorn comes next, January 16, with a gaggle of planets crowding into your twelfth house of privacy and rest. If you have a project that needs strong concentration, away from people who would distract you, here is your chance to hibernate. If you need to finish writing a book, a white paper report, or a thesis; create an artistic body of work; code a website; or do research in a scientific lab (as a few examples), these planets will help you be very productive. If you work in banking, archeology, historical research, ancestry, antiques, or estate jewelry, Capricorn rules these areas so you would likely see an exceptional progress.
