Today has potential! The Moon is in Virgo and the Sun and Mercury retrograde meet in Capricorn. It's an earth signs' kind of day with plenty to be accomplished and taken care of. It's a great day to finally pull it all together and get organized and back on track after the holidays.

If you accept or start a new job for example, it may turn out different than you thought. We need to be flexible and that's not really a bad thing. Let go of expectations and try things out. If you're scheduling things, plan snow or rain dates along with the original. The Sun and Mercury help us act on things we put aside.

The Moon is in Libra, sign of harmony and balance. Today is mixed with the Moon squaring Venus and the Sun and working with Mars and Neptune. Making decisions and commitments is not recommended virtually at all since Neptune has a deceptive, unrealistic influence and the Sun and Moon are not in sync. Any kind of progress will take a lot of work today. Mars lends creative, dynamic energy from Leo which can be used to motivate and fire us up. However, we may be best off with one good friend or partner we can trust or collaborate with since relationships in general will complicated or hard to negotiate. The Moon in Libra wants everything to be ok between us, but Venus in Capricorn challenges that. There's a struggle between the romantic, idealized vision and reality in love and relationship now.
