The year starts off with you wanting to win more acknowledgment at work, which for you translates into a monetary increase from your job. Asking for a raise when Mars glides into the financial sector of your chart on January 6 can help guarantee that you receive the increase. The caveat is that you could be too focused on the amount you’re getting. 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.
By the time the square between Jupiter and Uranus rolls around on the seventeenth, you’ll be glad that you pushed to get the raise you worked so hard for. In fact, your friends might be jealous of you now rather than you of them. This could lead to you being the most successful member of your crew and the envy of those you work with. After all, you’ve earned it! Enjoy the fruits of your labors through the end of the month.
