Friday 1/23  If you’ve been planning to budget or negotiate,  a lot of ground work can get laid out today. Even though Mercury is still retrograde, a careful conversation won’t miss much. It’s a good day to shop if there are purchases you must make but don’t want to overspend. The Capricorn Moon is well-placed for frugal shopping, bargaining and astute purchasing.

 The moon is in line with Pluto, so there may be rumblings in the market or news about fiscal transitions. Talking to the right person may make all the difference; don’t shy away from getting information because you think you may not like what you hear. Knowledge is power.
