Sometimes rebalancing is required to ensure success, and as the Sun opposes Jupiter on January 6, you may need to choose between pushing for financial reward and a more meaningful -- but perhaps less lucrative -- path.

Jupiter represents wealth as well as purpose. It is possible to do what you love and make money, but you may need to temporarily make a choice between the two now. Your desire to be generous or commit to a large-scale project also needs rethinking.

This Jupiter aspect cautions against excess. While you might be inspired to dream big, only commit to what you know is manageable. It's useful to keep the old business adage "under promise and over deliver" in mind.

Work-related study or travel are also highlighted. This is a great aspect for getting out of your comfort zone and exploring an alternative opportunity. Just make sure you keep your schedule manageable. For example, if you're thinking of further study, consider cutting down your work hours so you can maintain a work-life balance.

The Sun and Jupiter are opposing each other across two very traditional signs, Cancer and Capricorn. Cancer reflects the desires of home and family, while Capricorn describes ambition and the desire to work toward long-term goals.

This opposition indicates a need to re-adjust your focus. If you've been all work and no play, plan to leave work early and spend more time at home or with family. If you've been consumed with family or domestic matters, make career top priority this week.

The Jupiter and Capricorn influences have a materialistic tone, so try to connect to the more spiritual side of Jupiter and seek a sense of purpose rather than just chase the next promotion. The influence of the Sun suggests that an authentic choice is the best way to shine.

It's great to periodically review your motivations and intentions, and this week's Sun-Jupiter encounter will help you remember your purpose and tweak your efforts so you're more fully balanced and in tune with your daily life.
