January has all the potential to be an upbeat domestic month. But there’s also the chance for conflict and controversy at month’s end. Keep your cool when retrograde Mercury meets Mars in Capricorn and put important family decisions on hold until mid-February. It will be tough to get everyone on the same wavelength. A mechanical problem is also possible so keep an eye on appliances. Domestic repairs are best left to experts; it will be less expensive in the long run.
Despite the potential domestic downside, January is also filled with busy days and lots of family activities. If you want to get your place in shape, now is the time. Favorable planetary alignments are ideal for cleaning, de-cluttering, and organizing. Then show off the results by hosting a get-together the fourth weekend of the month.
The week of the January 26 Moon in Aquarius, your solar fifth house, is one of the best for romance, socializing, and play, especially because it’s preceded by Jupiter’s January 5 arrival in the same sign. If you’re a parent, or hope to be, you could have much to cheer about, and if you’re single, someone exciting could walk into your life.
You’ll be an attention-getter around the time of the January 10 Moon in Cancer, your career sector. And with Venus, your ruling planet, in Pisces, your solar sixth house of daily work, you could see more money in your paycheck. But you’ll also want to be aware of who’s saying and doing what the last week of the month, when you could catch a hint of changes on the horizon.
