Your career horoscope for the week commencing 26th March by Peter Watson.
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
Other people might make extremely negative noises about plans which you find intriguing. And it won’t take you long to realise that you are in a far better position than they are to analyse the true worth of whatever is being suggested. This has a lot to do with the fact that Venus is leaving your sign and making its way into Taurus where it will support you in establishing exactly how much value there would be in your being part of something about which not everybody can agree. This is one of those occasions on which you really are best to rely on your own methods of evaluating something which might in the end become extremely advantageous as far as you’re concerned. So refuse to let anyone persuade you otherwise.
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
Having tried to bring a complicated situation to a successful conclusion you may have become frustrated by some of the other people standing in your way. Rest assured that that’s all about to change as you’re impacted by the Full Moon that occurs at the weekend. By that time you should be in a position to plan the best means by which to tie up a lot of loose ends in a way that convinces even the most sceptical individuals that you do know what you’re doing. What you mustn’t do is to lose your temper with one particular individual who might persist in suggesting that you’re going about things in quite the wrong way. Those are the sort of people to whom you need to give an extremely wide berth.
GEMINI May 22 - Jun 21
As you’ve no doubt learned in the past you have a tendency to push yourself too hard and suffer the consequences, to a greater or lesser degree. And this week especially, the cosmos is reminding you of the dangers of over-achieving and refusing to allow yourself the rest and respite you need and deserve. This is all coming to a head because of the way in which Mars is forming a sharp link to Jupiter. As a result you might find that you strive for perfection and you try to prove yourself as indestructible, when in fact you’re running on empty. This would be an appropriate time for you to rethink your strategy with regard to challenges you can’t ignore but which you cannot always take on board. Your well-being must be taken into account.
CANCER Jun 22 - Jul 23
Not everyone would agree that an ambitious project should be approached in an unusually daring and innovative way. But you’ll be among those who would like to adopt new strategies rather than stick with tried and test methods which may have had their day. You’re being backed up in this by the way in which Venus is aligning itself to Uranus, the planet of inventiveness, within an extremely visible and powerful sector of your chart. This means that if you do pull off something of a major coup there’ll be plenty of witnesses to vouch for you. All of which is fine, provided of course that you don’t fall flat on your face in the process. So before you begin, do everything possible to ensure that things are exactly as they should be.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
Think about it carefully and you probably will have to admit that those in a powerful position have been scrutinising your strengths and talents. You should be able to tell by reflecting on what’s been said recently that you’re very much in the sight-lines of influential people. So it might be worth analysing an aspect of your professional life, financial affairs or reputation to decide whether or not you should be tempted to take on a new challenge if it were to come on offer. You almost certainly have a sneaking suspicion that you’ll soon be approached and invited to consider an invitation or challenge which you’ll be told is too good to resist. However, only you know what’s right for you. Don’t be rushed into making a decision before you’re ready to do so.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
Things are coming to a head with regard to a financial, career-related or property matter. So you must promise yourself that you won’t over-react when you realise that there might be quite a lot at stake if someone makes a wrong decision down the line. Part of your apprehension is linked to the fact that there’s a Full Moon in Libra at the weekend. This means that the section of your chart being directly affected is the one that governs all materialistic concerns. So your challenge will be to remain calm and not let the Full Moon bring out a part of you that becomes a little bit uncertain and possibly even obsessive when you think you’re in danger of getting things wrong. Trust yourself to be spot-on, provided you follow your deepest instincts.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
Initially, you may feel slightly discombobulated by the fact that you are expected to handle some fairly complicated work, property, financial or business affairs. But, in fact, you really have nothing to worry about. And you certainly shouldn’t be thrown by the fact that Jupiter is forming a sharp link to Mars. Yes, it means that you will feel under pressure to find solutions very quickly. And under the influence of Jupiter you might have a tendency to blow even the slightest little hitch or hassle out of all proportion. Your challenge will be to refuse to over-react. And to keep holding on to the fact that you do know what you are doing. By concentrating hard on what has to be managed you should be able to bring about favourable outcomes.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
Once again, people are likely to demand answers from you when they’re unsure about the best ways in which to complete everyday tasks and responsibilities. You seem to be in the midst of the kind of individuals who are afraid to think for themselves. Or perhaps they’re simply nervous, or out of touch with whatever is required of them. They can’t be blamed for turning to you because they probably sense that you have answers at your fingertips and that you will provide a helpful and cooperative response. This is especially so due to the fact that at the weekend the Sun will be joining forces with Mercury in a very efficient and hard-working section of your chart. Look forward to coming up with remedies for people with issues they cannot manage themselves.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
You’re right to think that a sense of order and discipline needs to be brought into territory in which workmates or friends seem to be functioning in a rather chaotic way. And it’s good for all concerned that you’re being affected by the way in which Venus enters the solid sign of Taurus at the weekend. It suggests that you should be able to spread calm across an area in which there has been some turbulence recently. Venus is of course the planet of balance so it should be fairly easy to weigh up what are major priorities against those issues which really do not warrant urgent attention. Don’t be surprised if the other people involved show how relieved they are to have you steering them towards productive and fulfilling ways of operating.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
How nice to think there’s a Full Moon occurring over the Easter weekend. And it’s one that will be lighting up an extremely potent part of your chart. This is why you need to make sure that you are prepared to comment on action you’ve been taking or work you’ve been doing which has been drawing a crowd. You really cannot blame those clamouring around you for wanting to find out more about you and your achievements. After all you do seem to have been keen to broadcast the fact that you want others to take note of whatever you’re trying to achieve. Just make sure that the Full Moon doesn’t bring out your slightly defensive streak if people fail to comment in quite the way you would expect. Let it go over your head.
AQUARIUS Jan 21 - Feb 19
On one level you probably cannot wait to disclose to certain people your latest ideas revolving around a financial or career-related arrangement. After all, it seems to be an exciting and stimulating topic to discuss. On the other hand however, you might be aware of an inner voice warning you that not everything is as solid and reliable as it should be. This is because Neptune forms a sharp link with Venus this week. As a result it will be hard for you to tell yourself that the results gleaned from whatever you’re doing will make all the planning and hard work worthwhile. You’re right to have your doubts as Neptune has almost certainly made you think in terms of fantasy rather than reality. You need to reconsider and reassess.
PISCES Feb 20 - Mar 20
Those people who have a habit of casting a shadow of doubt over financial or professional areas in which you have invested a lot might be a source of irritation for you. After all, you would far rather be given positive support than a lot of doubts and concerns, wouldn’t you? This is why you need to let a link between Venus and Uranus remind you how innovative you can be when it’s required of you. You should be able to come up with ways in which to show that you have every confidence in yourself and what you’re doing. And even the most entrenched Doubting Thomas in your midst should be made to realise that you are simply not going to allow anything or anybody to come between you and the success you seek.
