01-16-2017 to 01-22-2017
Let the sky be the limit this week, Taurus—even if that means suspending logic while you're in visionary brainstorming mode. Your natural inclination is to whip everything into a plan, but this can short-circuit the creative process. Hold off on playing project manager—or forcing a blossoming idea into a rigid structure—for at least four more days. Until Thursday, January 19 the Sun lingers in Capricorn and your ninth house of travel, philosophy, and entrepreneurial ventures. Treat the first half of the week like a science project: Explore, research, experiment, and take risks in the name of growth. And cast a wider net while you're at it. Wander outside your comfort zone and see what people in other parts of the world are doing. You might glean a genius idea from an Eastern modality or tap into raw inspiration from street style creativity. Multicultural mingling can open your mind to a whole new world of possibilities, too. Branch out and make a point of meeting people whose backgrounds and lifestyles are radically different from your own. Take a gamble and cold call someone you'd like to do business with. Your willingness to take a dare could be the rainbow leading straight to the pot of gold. You might even feel like playing hooky from work one day this week and frankly, the planets endorse it. If possible, take a day off before Thursday to go snowboarding or to hang out with a friend who's in town for business. A change of scenery gives your brain room to breathe. Surprise, surprise: You'll actually be far more productive after you've had some playtime.
On Thursday, the Sun heads into Aquarius and your career sector until February 18, kicking your ambitions back into high gear. The next month will be quite active for you professionally. Streamline your brilliant ideas into a business plan; have an invention officially trademarked. Some Bulls might decide to rejoin the corporate sector after a hiatus—or even start exploring growth opportunities within the company you work for, if not a totally new gig. If you're feeling the 9-5 vibes, spend the weekend polishing up your resume and shopping for an interview outfit. Let your social network know that you're on the hunt. Friends or former colleagues might have the perfect lead. For other Bulls, liberated and tech-savvy Aquarian energy could prompt you to build your own online business. Focus on the bottom line: What is the profit margin for the idea you want to launch? How much of a market share can you capture, and how big would your prospective audience be? Let's face it: While you may be content to live a modest life, you DO like your financial security…and a few luxe treasures here and there. Put your time towards a profitable business model. And if your first idea turns out to be a no-go, keep on brainstorming until you've hit the mark. The men in your world will play a more prominent role during this solar cycle. Carve out more quality time for your favorite dudes—and make more efforts to reach out to the guys you sense you should get to know better.
As you race toward that pot of gold, don't go sharing every one of your trade secrets, however; at least not on Thursday. That day, sober Saturn in your intense eighth house parks at a challenging angle to Mars. You could find out that one of your "competitors" has pulled a few sneaky moves behind your back. Rather than engage in hand-to-hand (or word-to-word) combat, use this as momentum to step up your game—and your security measures. Perhaps you were a little too loose-lipped in discussing an unfinished venture or too trusting of a group of people who you didn't really know well. Lesson learned! Now focus on the future instead of dwelling in the past. Use technology AND your understanding of human nature to improve your game. With a little extra innovation and relationship building, you'll pull to the head of the pack again. In your personal life, the Mars-Saturn square could reveal a snake in the grass near the weekend. Maybe you said a little more than you should have or complained behind someone's back in a moment of frustration. Still, you never expected that information to be repeated. Should you discover a betrayal of trust—or even sense that someone's playing both sides of the fence, zip it fast. Don't give the gossips any more ammo to use against you. Then, make amends with the people who you may have hurt, albeit inadvertently.
