Work has most likely been hard to focus on recently, what with someone close doing their best to get you to think about much more interesting things. Right now, with some boss or big customer also demanding your attention, you've got to do much more than simply apply butt to chair and nose to the grindstone. You've got to concentrate!
You are charming in any social situation, but dinner parties are where you especially shine and that goes double on Monday and Tuesday. Remember, though: Sometimes saying very little is more alluring than saying a lot. And this is just going to be one of those weeks when you don't feel like saying a whole lot. A lot of the talking you do later this week is going to be internal. You won't have to contend with any authority figures, and that is going to open you up to the wonders of daydreaming. This weekend, you may have a revelation that sets you on a whole new path.
Forward-thinking Uranus goes direct on January 2, changing the energy ever so slightly from rule follower to nonconformist. Let’s be honest, though. You’re probably never going to be a hardcore dissident, right? But you might branch out in your own way by doing something completely unusual - for you. And that’s pretty cool!
Talkative Mercury settles into Capricorn on the eleventh, which makes your communications buttoned up and quite serious. It isn’t that you don’t have a sense of humor, but you don’t see the point in making jokes when there are actual critical discussions to have and crucial decisions to make.
Mercury merges with mysterious Pluto on January 24, at which point you could decide to whisper your true intentions (or keep them secret altogether). The less people know about your private plans the better, and telling even one unsuspecting soul (including your trusted BFF) could compromise the mission.
There’s a very interesting Leo full moon (and blue moon) on the thirty-first that gets in the way of accomplishing a goal. Distractions are everywhere, so it isn’t a surprise that you haven’t finished everything on your plate. It’s also understandable. You may have a valid excuse, but you probably won’t need to use it.
