Fiery, confident, and competitive Mars now moves through your work and health sector until March 17th, dear Cancer, and you’re bringing more of these Mars qualities to your daily affairs, work, and wellness programs during this dynamic period.

Work may be competitive now, but if you can set your own pace, you’ll get a whole lot done. This is a time for testing the effectiveness of your routines and habits and turning them around if need be.

Daily life may speed up, and might at times be a little chaotic without careful management. For some of you, there is a larger workload to deal with, but for others, it may be due to increased motivation to take on more projects.

Do your best not to overexert yourself. Also watch for conflicts with people you work or live with, as you can be working at a quicker pace. Otherwise, with energy channeled well, you can get a whole lot done. Today, however, your emotional need to unwind can conflict with these goals, but consider getting the extra rest you need.

You may be stretched to your limits on the job now, yet going the extra mile can gain you the support you need to turn an arduous chore into a memorable activity. Enterprising Mars is looking for action as it enters your 6th House of Daily Routine.

However, too much directed intention might open old wounds and create new sources of pain. It’s better to move slowly and methodically so you stir up less trouble. Watch for the smallest changes, for they can have the greatest impact.

In normal circumstances Mars’ departure from a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and return to your work sector today would be a problem.

Just to have planetary activity here in the New Year is an advantage, one that at most is over by the end of January. This does kick off some of the busiest weeks of 2017, but with Jupiter staying on in your romantic and creative sector, a balance between work and play will be policed.
