The key is to focus on simplifying while this aspect is in force in January, and only later work on building and expanding. You’ll find that after Uranus turns direct, our spirit to innovate with business or money-making ideas renews and that you're generally finding answers to recent dilemmas on these fronts. You’re ready to fight for what you’re worth if need be. With Mars heading into your spirit sector, new adventures and experiences can suddenly seem desirable after many months of being quite content following simple routines close to home. You're looking to break out of the mold or routine in various ways through what you learn and where you go. You’re more courageous and motivated to try new things.
January can also bring stronger energy for connecting with a partner, and perhaps some drama to your personal life. Financial matters, mainly revolving around shared resources or debts, might also heat up. Mars in your partnership and then intimacy sectors this month can certainly heat up and animate your closest relationships. While there can be some difficulties with an overbearing partner to deal with for some of you, this is an excellent time to make changes and put some of the building tension to rest. This period favors confronting problems head-on with direct and assertive Mars involved.
The Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.
