Astrology and Your Career

(June 21st-July 22nd)

Happy birthday Cancer! There are two things to be concerned with this month.
No. 1: You might be going out on short distances for business related travel.
No. 2: You have the ability to attract more of what you want for yourself right now.

Venus conjuncts the new moon in Cancer this month. What does that mean? Think of the symbols and what they mean in general. Venus, goddess of beauty, love and attraction, in Cancer, sign of the crab, the moon, the mother. It represents the idea of giving birth to those things that you create from emotion, feeling, intuition and attraction. In today's society, we think of things like "The Secret" and "A New Earth" and we're taught what seems to be a scientific principle of the universe. If you truly wish something for yourself to the point of being able to envision it, but separate yourself from the ego reinforcement of the pursuit, aiming at it from the perspective of love, then you attract your heart's true desire. You manifest it. You are the actual embodiment of what you create. We often lose sight of that, but this month especially for you, is a time where you won't be losing sight of it.

Also note that Mars is conjunct Saturn in your 3rd house: Siblings might play part in your financial plans for the better part of the month. Anything you work at should be tempered by possibility. You have the ability to create a nice balance in any action taken in those directions between drive, determination, will and then fruition.

In other good news, those financial woes you've had for the past few months are coming to an end. So, L'chaim!

(July 23rd-August 22nd)

I've been pushing you Leo to stand up, take charge and rule your own destiny lately. Well, the challenge has not been issued without a purpose. You see, you might be seeing the results of your will played back to you now as we're entering a series of eclipses in your sign and your opposite sign of Aquarius. Starting this month, be on the lookout for any grand changes in your life's design. In you don't see them now, pay attention next month. I'm not talking about just your average, any day kind of changes. I'm talking about grander life changes this month. Pay attention. You'll start seeing them now and they will become more clearly delineated in the future — about six months from now. In any case, pay attention to keeping your expenses in check now too. There is a supposed rule of the universe that the money you put out there is supposed to come back to you tenfold, or something like that, so be extra careful this month that you know where your credit lies.

(August 23rd-September 22nd)

You deserve a bit of a break Virgo, always working so hard and making things happen. If you have the opportunity to take a moment for yourself where you can stop thinking about what you should be doing, where you should be going, how you should be spending your time and making money, then take a moment now to experience that. I'm on your page of perfectionism, but right now, feel instead of think. You'll serve your best intentions in business and beyond. Your friends will steer you straight too. If you can take part in any group activities with friends "in the know," do yourself the favor. You'll be thankful you did.

(September 23rd-October 22nd)

Meetings that you have at the top of this month will begin to pan out for you next month. You're on the verge of one business cycle being completed, and as with all completions, there are new beginnings. So too will you find your footing changed. Real estate investments may figure prominently in the latter half of the month. If you need to make a change there, invest in it now. It'll pay off later.

(October 23rd-November 21st)

Like Leo, I've challenged you to step it up over the past couple of months. A propelling forward in career is sure to be felt over the coming months, perhaps even in a new direction. Nothing in the universe comes without action, so if you've been resting on your laurels, unsure of which direction to take, you still have this month to direct things where you want them to be. Come on, you're a Scorpio. I'm not telling you something you don't already know. There is a noticeable shift for you next month. Get ready for the best.

(November 22nd-December 21st)

Expect to accept increased responsibility at work. This is what you've been working for these past couple of years, so now that it's here, make sure you can handle it all. You definitely have the energy to do so, as well as the determination to keep things going. If you need additional funding for a project, it's okay to take that risk now as the stars are aligned to help you out.

(December 22nd-January 19th)

I'm happy to tell you that partnership issues will take center stage for you this month. If you haven't been investing time in keeping your closest attachments working and functioning, then now is the time to make sure your demands and expectations are met. Business and personal partnerships are now more amenable to change than at other times. Not in a partnership but contemplating a deal with somebody you respect and admire. I'm giving you the go ahead to take that leap this month. You can't go wrong.

(January 20th-February 18th)

Have you felt protected this year? Felt as if there is some divine coincidence that has gotten you where you are, and is aiming you where you are going? Well, buckle up. The next few months are sure to take you on quite a ride. You're still protected, but there are changes afoot that may come out of nowhere especially in relation to dealings with other people's money. After July 10th, things will be easier for sure, but I can't wait for next month for you. Exciting times ahead!

(February 19th-March 20th)

I want you to be extra careful in your partnerships this month. Things that have been percolating under the surface may come to a head in the middle of the month, but don't say I didn't warn you. Compromise is the best key to making any financial plan work, so focus on the positive of any conflict you encounter rather than the negative. I know things haven't been easy for a while now, but think about how much more resolute and solid you have become in balancing your work needs and health matters. That's where you start, and the rest, including money matters, will follow soon enough.

(March 21st-April 19th)

So, your responsibilities at work have been piling up and you're not sure of when there will be an end in sight. The answer? Not yet. In fact, more likely than not, your workload is sure to increase throughout the month ahead. That's okay though because now is the best time to take on the extra burden because if you keep on keeping on, by the end of the month, you sure to be noticed. Look around the full moon on the 18th for an increase in personal power around the office.

(April 20th-May 20th)

If you didn't ask for a raise or see money filling your coiffeurs last month, then stay tuned for next month when there are sure to be dramatic changes at the office. In the meantime, traveling on business will work to your advantage and lay the foundation for what's in store around the corner. I know you're somewhat resistance to change. Don't be afraid. Change is a good thing.

(May 21st-June 20th)

I told you to make a plan last month because, with Mercury in retrograde, starting something new would have probably not turned out as you had planned. Now that that is over, my advice is to focus on investing money into your home. Is there something that's fallen apart lately or that looks like it'll need work in the near future? Fix it now before it gets out of hand. The days surrounding the 10th are sure to bring something to your attention at home. It's an adjustment that has to be made, so better to do it now than later.
