How was your first week of the new year? We are now in the second week, so let’s look at what that means. On January 10th, Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. As a result, deception is likely to occur. Therefore, it would be best to be careful around your colleagues who dislike you or your competitors because they can easily throw you under the bus.
On that Monday, you should be very mindful that it could play you harshly. Therefore, you should not be overly trusting. Also, please don’t get too defensive with others, as you may think someone is after you when they are not. This will only lead to conflict.
Similarly, the Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces on the same day, which means your intuition and creativity are heightened so that you may be more discerning. Therefore, when strategizing, it is a good day to use imagination. However, don’t get too lost in daydreaming, as that could result in not completing your work.
On January 12th Mercury in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus, causing you to act before you think. So the thing to do on that Wednesday is to make sure you proofread your work carefully and not send unedited emails. You don’t want to lose any potential business by being careless.
Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius on Friday, January 14th. The dreaded time is upon us once again. Mercury will be retrograde for a few weeks, so you should avoid starting new projects. However, you should finish any old projects. Aquarius will bring many misunderstandings as well as technological issues.
On Sunday, January 16th, the Sun will conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, allowing you to feel in control on that day. The day is good for problem-solving, but do not try to control anyone or backfire since the energy affects them. We’ll see how the signs fare this week. But, first, let’s see what tarot card pulls I get too.
Aries – Judgment
You will feel an urge to learn more about your roots and your history, and you may make an unexpected discovery as a result. You may feel differently about yourself, and you may become distracted from your work as a result.
Taurus – Four Of Cups
Is your work bringing you joy? This is the question you should ask yourself. Do you consider your work your job or your hobby? Your career may feel like a crossroad as you think you should stick to it, but you wonder if you are happy with it.
Gemini – Queen Of Cups Reversed
Over the past week, you have been focusing on your health regimen. If you don’t drink enough water, you will realize how less productive you are when you don’t drink enough water. So remind yourself to drink a glass of water at certain times during the day. This is the self-care you need.
Cancer – Justice
As you make some changes to your business contracts, you may want to update your legal documentation. Changing your will this week might also be a good idea, as these energies will impact your personal life as well.
Leo – Seven Of Swords
Because the energies are centered in your Eighth house, you will have the urge to delve into secrets, as you will have a good chance of figuring out a method your competitor has been using. Particularly towards the end of the week, you can use it to your advantage.
Virgo – Ace Of Pentacles
You may go on a business trip to another country this week. You may make the arrangements this week. You may gain a new client from overseas, or you may acquire a business connection that can benefit you in some way if you don’t work with others in different countries.
Libra – Five Of Swords
You may be concerned that your reputation has been compromised somehow. For example, you may have received bad reviews about your business, or you may have been treated poorly by your coworkers. It is best to ask around if there is an issue regarding your reputation and find out what the problem is to rectify it if it is the case.
Scorpio – Three Of Cups Reversed
It’s becoming apparent that your friendships are very closely linked to your professional life. In this week, you may be evaluating your friendships to determine if any are toxic to your productivity and well-being. Are your friends sincere? You will not have a problem getting rid of those who seem harmful to you by the end of the week.
Sagittarius – Seven Of Wands
This week, hidden enemies or competition are still a concern, especially with the harsh Mars and Neptune aspects affecting you. You may get into a bad habit due to the frustration, so do your very best not to give in. Instead, you should watch for opportunities and possibly offer your current clients or customers something unbeatable and advertise enticing reasons to join you.
Capricorn – Emperor
In this week, you will be reminded how much control you have over your life. This does not mean that things beyond your control happen, but you want to be the best you can be, whatever you can control. That will remind you that you wish your personal and productive life to be the best it can be. Make sure you get enough sleep and eat healthily, which you can control.
Aquarius – Eight Of Pentacles
During this week’s evaluation, you will be able to see that you have an abundance of skills. However, you may not be using them to their full potential, leading you to believe that you don’t have enough. However, once you do a complete evaluation, you will realize that you have so many more skills than you initially considered, and you will want to find out what you can do with them.
Pisces – Queen Of Swords
Watch your words because the Mars and Neptune aspects will impact how you speak. Unintentionally being sarcastic and rude may cost you business if you don’t tone it down. Your main challenge this week will be communication, so be aware of it.
With Mercury going into retrograde again at the end of the week, you will need to finish up old projects and brainstorm for new ones over the next few weeks. But, don’t start anything new. Above all, stay strong.
