In practical terms, if you're going to ask something of someone, approach them later in the day. You can also help yourself by postponing irritating connections if possible. For example, if you have to call the IRS or something else annoying, calling "first thing in the morning" is not your best option.
All this stuff aside, most are going to get serious about work at this point. The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Pluto are all in Saturn-ruled signs. Saturn is in Sagittarius conjunct Venus. We're all planning and working towards what we hope will be a happy future.
You may even feel a bit more optimistic at this time with Jupiter in Virgo trining the stellium in Capricorn. The key thing is, most understand they are going to have to work for a benefit, regardless of what that benefit is.
