Home is where your heart—and some heat—will be as January begins. The Sun is in Capricorn and your domestic fourth house until January 19, starting the year off with a more emotional or family-oriented bent. Alas, it might not be all cozy fireside moments and ugly Christmas sweaters, though. Communication planet Mercury has been retrograde in Capricorn since December 19, and it continues its signal-scrambling transit until January 8. Holiday guests may have gotten under your skin, or you may have felt the tension of clashing political views. Your attempts to pull off grandma’s classic latkes or baked ham may have been a comedy of errors, but not so funny in the moment when you were due to serve dinner for ten.

Drop the mysterious front and start talking, Scorpio. Until January 19, the Sun is in Capricorn and your third house of communication, giving you the gift of gab as the calendar turns. And as any perceptive Scorpio knows, a key ingredient to forging a powerful relationship is through active listening. As you’re swapping stories, pitching projects and getting to know people, ask pointed, open-ended questions. Body language speaks volumes too, especially during this chatty cycle. Pay attention to what’s NOT being said—to the pauses and shifts in posture. There may be more than meets the eye now. See the rest of your 2017 horoscope here!

Your confidence gets a big boost when you take care of the basics. Strengthen your coworker relationships, get your work done on time, and come up with a rock-solid plan for spending and saving. Build that nest egg, Sag. See the rest of your 2017 horoscope here!
