Any flush of success is a heady experience. You feel like you're on top of your game and you can do no wrong. It's a wonderful sensation that you should cherish and revel in. However, things can go wrong when you bank on your success too early in the game and then push your luck — as with thanking your boss for a bonus one day and then pushing for a raise the next or deciding to use your recent promotion as interview fodder with competing companies. Success can set you up for failure when Jupiter forms a square to Mars on Jan. 8 because it makes you reckless. Remember that the hand that raised you up can also bring you down.
