The emotionally sensitive Cancer Full Moon on January 10falls in your 10th House of Career, exposing your vulnerability to those around you—whether you intend to or not. Issues that come to the forefront now will likely be up for review through the rest of the month because thoughtful Mercury turns retrograde on January 11, backs into cautious Capricorn on January 21, and doesn’t turn direct again until February 1. The nonconforming Aquarius New Moon Eclipse on January 26falls in your 5th House of Self-Expression, and its conjunction to confident Jupiter can give you an advantage when you share your thoughts with others. Even if your actions appear irresponsible, remember that this eclipse strongly encourages interacting with children and playfully expressing your own inner child.
