Astrology and Your Career

(March 21st-April 19th)

First thing's first. April 5th, there's a new moon in Aries. A new moon is always the best time to start something new. When it's in your birth sign, it's even better. Think of life as moving in cycles, and planets and the moon as exerting some sort of impact on our lives, albeit in ways we cannot measure just yet. When the moon is missing from the sky, it is a time when you will begin something, for by the time you reach the full moon on the 20th, your idea, business or concept is already halfway through one of the cycles of life.

What I'm saying is... start something new! Follow your intuition, whatever it may be guiding you toward beginning! As a fiery Aries, you're best served with putting your feelings out there and then reigning them in if you have to. In general, for you, it's good to be impulsive for that is your nature. Especially now, for Jupiter, the planet that rules luck, is in your 10th house, which astrologically speaking, means matters concerning your career are blessed right now. Now would be the time to take chances. Venus is looking out for Jupiter, and she's the planet that represents issues of attraction. It looks like a good situation is to be had by an Aries who begins something new on the 5th, whatever that may be.

And, don't worry if you don't start exactly on the 5th. Jupiter and Venus are sticking around where they are for a bit, so you can take a couple of days to decide what to do. Luck and attraction are on your side.

When Pluto, the dwarf planet with a whole lot of power, goes retrograde and starts moving what appears to be backwards in the sky on the 8th, dealings with other people's money and issues of inheritance may slow down. Relax if this starts to happen and upsets you. No need to lose it Aries.

You're in good shape through the rest of the month, and next month even looks better. I'll tell you about that then. Enjoy April. Happy Birthday to you!

(April 20th-May 20th)

This month, if you're traveling on business, all the better. It's definitely where you're likely to strum up financial success. This is more of a planning month for you. From April 20th on, the month will definitely be in your favor. What didn't work over this past year? It's time to figure it out. Next month, things will start rolling along just fine.

(May 21st-June 20th)

This month is about networking for you. It's not going to be easy with work piling up on your plate, but being out and about at group functions with friends who can direct you toward your goals is where you should be. For now through the next month, get your financial affairs and plans in order. Make the moves now.

(June 21st-July 22nd)

Your career should be at the top right now, but if you're feeling it's at the bottom, this is the month to turn it around. Switch it up if you have to. You may feel a little drained with having to make your best-case decisions with so much uncertainty surrounding them, but have faith in yourself. You know what you're talking about right now and for the months to come. Listen to your gut.

(July 23rd-August 22nd)

Next month is the month to strike for career success. Right now, enjoy the unexpected windfall that may come your way during the last week of April. Something good is about to happen, even if you haven't felt it for a long time. You're about to start feeling more financially secure especially in matters relating to your home. That's a good thing.

(August 23rd-September 22nd)

Money will be leaving your hands for the first part of this month, but that's because it's time to get your finances in order. By the time the last week rolls around, you'll be finding your footing again. Life might not have been the easiest lately, nor for the past year, but remember, everything is a lesson to be learned and, you're already through the worst of it. Soon enough, there will be a rebound. Know that everything happens in its own time.

(September 23rd-October 22nd)

Partner up this month. You're a Libra, so you should know all about how to do that. Your companions are sure to help you in business in the month ahead. Energy you channel into your grander career destination is sure to show gains through teamwork.

(October 23rd-November 21st)

This is a month to hunker down and keep everybody else from freaking out. Don't make any big moves that you might regret later. This is the chance to figure out how to maintain business and health-related matters, for deep down, you know the two go hand in hand. Don't drive yourself crazy while everybody else is losing it. By the full moon in Scorpio on the 20th, the picture will be clearer and the chatter will die down.

(November 22nd-December 21st)

Who deserves a break today? You do, that's who! Try to enjoy the pleasures of life you've worked so hard to build. You know how to do that! Unlike other times where you might have been prone to overindulge, now, you deserve the benefits.

(December 22nd-January 19th)

Concentrate on matters of the home. If that's where you needed to spend money, do it now. That's where it will best be served. Career matters won't be your focus until the end of the month. In the meantime, try to enjoy yourself. You sometimes have a hard time doing that, but this month, check in with your friends. They'll help you out.

(January 20th-February 18th)

This could be quite a month for you with career matters. There's a certain alignment in the stars that is reaching out to you, telling to you see the big picture because it should be starting to come into focus and be clear as day by the end of the month. Watch around the 20th. That's when your star will be lit up in the career sector. Good stuff.

(February 19th-March 20th)

This is a month for being creative and allowing the images in your mind to rise to the surface. If you want a raise, act around the 8th, plus or minus a couple of days. If you don't take advantage of that, no worries. You're not one to truly worry about the value of a dollar.
