Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
Although we don’t know if Sun Tzu, the author of the corporate climber’s favorite, The Art of War, was an Aquarian, I could make a good case that based on your week, he could have been. An applicable quote of his would be, “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” You might feel inclined toward a struggle or the fight at the top of the week, but that’s not the ultimate thing you want to do. As Mercury goes into Libra at the top of the week, I can’t help but think that it’s diplomacy and rules of engagement based on principles that’s gonna win the war for you without considerable losses. And this round of the battle is likely something you’ve been contending with off and on since January. You might as well bring it to a close with grace.
