You have a powerful opportunity to strengthen a relationship with a colleague, client, or mentor as the week begins. On January 4, the moon in your sturdy second house will form a trine with Mercury and Pluto in your seventh house of partnerships, helping you strengthen your trust and build rapport.
You’re receiving a boost in your career pursuits by January 6, when Mars activates your tenth house of social status and gives you all the ammo to compete harder than ever. However, you might run into opposition by the seventh, when the moon in your fourth house of home engages in a standoff with Mars and paves the way for your private life to interfere with your goals. Try settling whatever it is that’s causing you to feel torn. As Mercury in your seventh house of open enemies squares off with Mars on January 8, you may be comparing yourself to another contender in your field. Instead, try to remember that you’re competing against your past self.
In fact, you should keep your eyes on your paper, because January 8 is also when Venus in your productive sixth house will trine with Mars, giving you space to get a ton of work done.
