When Jupiter and Uranus square off on the seventeenth, you could receive the first piece of unexpected positive feedback.

Two days later, the sun enters Aquarius, allowing you to openly discuss your dreams with others. On the twenty-sixth, dreamy Neptune squares off with the nodes of destiny, giving you the determination to pursue your goals. If you believe it, it can happen now.

If you’re comparing your salary to that of your friends, you could base your worth on the number (a competitive sentiment that you’ll feel when Mercury enters Aquarius on the eighth).
The movement of Venus into your career house, also on January 8, followed by the Capricorn new moon five days later, solidifies your professional vision. It could even bring a new title your way as well.

After all, you’ve earned it! Enjoy the fruits of your labors through the end of the month.

It might result in a scandal, which is why you want to make sure you don’t get involved in a fishy situation that could affect your money or career.

On the nineteenth, you might feel like you’re more connected to your co-workers than usual when the sun shines its light on your sector of service, allowing you and your colleagues to work on projects as a team.

Financially, you’re thinking about making some moves. But when Neptune squares off with the nodes of destiny on January 26, you have to see how a speculative opportunity plays out before you decide to invest. You could be confused about major financial moves that you have to make, and you might be wondering if your novel ideas are going to work out in the long run. Don’t rush any decisions. Take your time before moving forward.
The powerful Leo full moon in your zone of professional contacts on the twenty-eighth can serve as a barometer of the months ahead for you. You might feel called to do an about-face in some aspect of your current course of business development. Someone or something has sparked your interest and awakened you to new possibilities for your future.
You could get offers from past connections and then some during Mercury’s backward spin that begins on January 30.

Before you defend yourself against their emotional behavior, take a step back and ask yourself if it’s worth the trouble. After all, if you get the money you asked for and deserve, what difference does it make if colleagues exhibit behavior that is less than professional?
If it continues, you can use Mercury’s backward journey (which starts on the thirtieth) to your advantage by having a talk with human resources to stop any gossip, glares, and drama. Don’t feel bad about protecting your emotional and financial well-being. To be honest, you have to ensure your own future security. After all, you’ve earned it through your hard work.
