January 12

Mars trine Jupiter

A lot of times we set a goal and then work hard to achieve it. It’s the reason for to-do lists, target weights, and money-saving strategies. Mars is all about raising the bar higher, but sometimes we can be so single-minded that we limit what we’re capable of. This is the story of the Mars/Jupiter trine on January 12. Instead of hitting the mark and trying again, see what you can do to broaden your scope. You may discover you’ve gained experience, skills, and even an improvisational inventiveness. If you’re always making the challenge steeper then you’ll never learn to build on what you have. Signs most affected: Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces
