Astrology and Your Career

(May 21st-June 20th)

The major thing to caution you against this month, dear Gemini, is to take it a bit slower. Of all the signs, Gemini is the most aware of living in the "now." Eckhart Tolle, author of "A New Earth" advises everybody to step outside of their ego and listen to that inner voice that guides you in the moment towards clarity. The Gemini personality exists in that present space most noticeably. It is what makes you a Gemini. For a Gemini, as much as other's might label you as changeable, the sign of the twins, you are merely adaptable and aware of things as they are happening. You redirect your energy quickly where you best see fit. This month, redirect your energy towards you and pursuits from the past that you might not have completed. Old friends, business partners, or associates could figure into your life now and reconnecting with them is a good way of clearing the path out for tomorrow and getting a grasp on what should be your next step. When Mercury goes out of retrograde on the 19th, you're more likely to feel life has fallen on the right path again, business dealings and all. So, try to take it easy on yourself this month. It's summer time, so once again, dear Gemini, the timing couldn't be more perfect! Get things down on paper and consolidate your plans now. What you create with words and actions, the foundation you lay now, has a greater chance for success at the end of the month. So, take it easy, but do what you do best. Communicate!

(June 21st-July 22nd)

I'm sorry to say, but this month, like last, is a month of increased spending. That's not to say you'll just be throwing your money away, but rather, investing in those things which have the propensity to be bountiful in the future. There may be tension with a coworker around the full moon on the 18th, but don't allow yourself to be taken advantage of. When the sun returns to your sign at the end of the month, you'll come up smelling like roses.

(July 23rd-August 22nd)

With fiery Mars continuing his journey through Leo all this month, continue to promote your own ideas, concepts and money-making schemes. You're sure to be met with a positive reception from superiors and people in the know. This is the type of energy which comes around once every two years, so make the most of it to make sure you have no regrets in the future. Shine Leo, shine!

(August 23rd-September 22nd)

You haven't been having the easiest go of things lately with Saturn steadily cruising through your sign. You've either been feeling challenged by life's numerous personal dilemmas or tussled with confusion at work when it comes to the best direction in which to strike. Relax. Readjust your thinking when it comes to business related matters until Mercury moves forward in the second half of June. Only then will you truly find your focus.

(September 23rd-October 22nd)

Look towards foreign investments this month. If you have the opportunity to travel for business, you're certain to attract monetary opportunities by putting yourself out there. Any group associations you have or friends in high places are sure to direct you towards realizing your dreams. Dream big now, for in the coming months, there is sure to be bounty aplenty.

(October 23rd-November 21st)

Career success is yours right now for the taking. As a Scorpio, you should be feeling it in your bones. If what I'm telling you feels or seems far off right now, wait until the end of the month when things turn around. Two months from now, whatever is going on career-wise will come to a head, so if you're not using the energy at your disposal now, you'll only have yourself to blame.

(November 22nd-December 21st)

Teamwork. That should be your motto now. Work accomplished now in concert with others will serve you best. Even if you find yourself at odds with a potential partner around the full moon on the 18th, it's better that you see the big picture now in your associations than living under a rock. You deserve the credit you've earned as well as the money, so make sure to establish what is fair.

(December 22nd-January 19th)

So, last month I told you to take a break and breathe. That was all in anticipation of this month as your workload is sure to be piling up. With so many planets moving through your house of work and health, I hope you rested and reset your energy level because you're sure to need it with everything being thrown at you. Be careful as you always are when it comes to planning ahead because this month especially, you need to be.

(January 20th-February 18th)

Focus on your own projects now. Get creative and allow your own original ideas to flower. By this time next year, everything you have set into motion now will have come to fruition. Over the next two years, you are one of two signs who will see the most change in your life. Remember, all change is for the best and what we don't create for ourselves will be created for us. So, take the risks you want to now. You really have nothing left to lose.

(February 19th-March 20th)

This month is the best month for you to focus on matters of the home. The best thing to spend money on are investments in your home. Perhaps it's time to reestablish it as you want it to be in the future. Think of your home as the most solid manifestation of your inward personality. Now, think about how you tend to live in dreams. Manifest your investment in your most outward reflection of you. You'll feel reborn.

(March 21st-April 19th)

Don't move too quickly this month in any of your pursuits. You'll be sure to have to revisit them as the month comes to an end, so better not to get caught up in something you can't follow through to the end. Since you're so keen on starting things, make sure that you're seeing everything clearly rather than impulsively acting as you are apt to do. If you have something to sign, wait until the end of the month. That's your best bet.

(April 20th-May 20th)

Money, money, money, money. Money! Sing the theme of "The Apprentice" with me now. Have you felt entitled to a raise recently? So, why not ask for it? Isn't it about time you got what you deserved. I think so. So should you. If its not a raise you deserve, than seek alternate sources of income this month. Come on. You're the moneymaker of the zodiac. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
