Mars (action) in Aquarius opposes Jupiter Rx (expansion) in Leo from December 28th to January 1st. This high-octane aspect promises surges of energy, possibility and surprise. Mars in Aquarius barrels towards the future, while Jupiter in Leo amplifiesthe energy of entitlement. This could play out as conflicts between Aquarian freedom and Leo recognition, or subjective power versus objective instincts. Either way, actions will be loud and noticeable. There is certainly potential to blast your way through limits. But the push for more can tip into excessiveness, as people get carried away with the sense of what should be. Remember that Jupiter promises much, but the delivery is up to you. Jupiter’s Rx (reversed) status indicates that most developments will be based on past or existing issues.
Venus (love, money, values) begins her Aquarian ingress on January 3rd, bringing some social harmony to this sign after the Mars/Jupiter dustup. Venus in Aquarius is helpful for detaching us from outcomes, and breathing new life into stale or possessive relationships/habits.
From January 1st to 3rd, the Sun in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto and squares Uranus in Aries, stirring up more developments in the ongoing drama of the Uranus/Pluto square. Step back from conflicts, discoveries or tension, and view them as part of the larger evolutionary trend that began around May 20, 2013, April 21, 2014 or December 15, 2014, when degrees close to the current square were activated (11-13 degrees).

The Sun in your career sector conjuncts Pluto, and squares Uranus (in your sign) continuing the emphasis on strongly flavoured public energy.

- The overhaul continues: career, dealings with management, professional reputation, status

But along with the spotlight is possible conflict with domestic areas, such as (unplanned) relocation or juggling family and career matters.

Impulsive career decisions are a risk, so you’ll need to differentiate between a flash of opportunity and an unwise leap. Venus enters your career sector, hi-lighting a fresh approach to career relationships or promoting your work; think new, unusual and innovative rather than traditional.
The Sun conjuncts Pluto in your opportunities sector, and squares Uranus in your hidden sector, triggering an unexpected legal issue, travel snafu or desire to prove yourself.

Watch for surprising news about a partner’s finances, or unexpected solutions around a financial shortfall (even though these issues will be based in ongoing developments). Intimacy matters can feel unstable and touchy, as deep revelations hit you. However, they will also be ultimately clarifying and part of the ongoing shift in your private life.

- The overhaul continues: debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, physical/emotional intimacy

Watch out for the absolute conviction that one partner is “right,” as this influence can enhance self-righteousness. As Venus enters your partnership sector, you should be able to find a point of agreement/harmony, even if one or both of you are bent on having your own way. Too, the above, combined energies could mark your genuine efforts and desire to meet someone, if you've just been going through the motions up until now.
The Sun conjuncts Pluto in your sector of routine, squaring Uranus in your sector of opportunity. A long-simmering issue around freedom to explore versus attending to obligations close to home may flare up again. There could also be an abrupt development in health issues, or conflicts with co-workers. This could be a “straw that breaks the camel’s back” kind of influence when it comes to frustrating work tasks, heavy obligations or suspicions that you are not being fully appreciated.
- More opportunity/more risk: partnerships, you versus them, new attractions
- The overhaul continues: co-worker relationships, existing routines versus new horizons, health, obligations
