Your career horoscope for the week commencing 27th March by Peter Watson
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
It’s a pity that you have found it difficult to discuss administrative, financial or business issues with others. It’s not that you have anything to hide. In fact, you often pride yourself on the way in which you practise total transparency in this kind of area. But there have been times recently when other matters have dominated. Or you have judged the mood or temperament of certain individuals to be such that it would not be easy for you to acquaint them with some complicated facts and figures. That’s fine but it obviously cannot go on much longer. So take advantage of Mercury leaving your sign and entering Taurus where it will help you find the right words and gestures to disclose even the most complicated material to those who need to know about it.
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
Surprised though you may be to hear workmates or associates becoming rather prescriptive or demanding with regard to certain ideas or projects you mustn’t overreact. You’re being impacted by the way in which Jupiter squares up to powerful Pluto this week. And it could mean that you find the notion of others flexing their muscles unnecessarily rather unsettling. You won’t be interested in a power struggle. All you’ll want to do is get things done with the help and cooperation of those around you. But of course with Jupiter involved the slightest little ripple could be blown up out of all proportion if you’re not careful. So refuse to take umbrage when these people appear to start throwing their weight around. It will soon pass and you don’t want to make things worse.
GEMINI May 22 - Jun 21
Be prepared to scrutinise a set-up or arrangement which up until now you have assumed to be okay. Venus changing signs is causing you to question the way in which certain others have handled things without checking that you’re happy with what they’re doing. It could be that something similar has happened to you in the past and you’re now being reminded that people can unwittingly do the opposite of what you’d like them to do. And it’s a shock when you find out exactly what’s been going on. Much of this is linked to Venus, which is retrograde or moving backwards through your chart, reversing as it were into Pisces which means that it’s urging you to ask questions as it positions itself in the most potent sector of your chart. Start probing.
CANCER Jun 22 - Jul 23
Developments connected to a challenging venture or piece of work could mean that you’re expected to check that everybody is adhering to guidelines, boundaries and ethics. This is tied in to the fact that Mercury is allied to Saturn this week. So the cosmos is having a great deal of impact on the two sections of your chart that govern your professional, financial or business involvements. And of course Saturn’s influence is such that you and certain other people will want to insist that absolutely everything that’s done is of a high standard and is completely above board. So assume the right to ask questions and to insist that no corners are cut, the books balance at all times and that nobody’s operating in a way that could cause even the slightest problems.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
Does it ever occur to you that people connected to your dealings in the wider world sometimes talk about you and whatever you’re doing? It would be easy to assume that everybody else is too busy to take much notice of the progress you’re making within certain areas. But this week, as you feel the effects of Mercury arriving at the most visible point in your chart, it’s quite likely that you will be generating a certain amount of intrigue because of your dealings in a particular sector of work or business. Don’t worry about it but do try to accept that certain individuals may try to find out rather more about you and your work ethic, personal philosophy or perhaps the direction you intend to take within the next few months or even years.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
In the past you may have struggled to persuade some of your colleagues, friends or associates to work with you in a way that is beneficial to all. They simply haven’t been able to collude with you while doing all the other things they want to do. So you’re likely to feel that you need to have yet another go at convincing them that you’d all be much better off if you could join forces and support one another so that you unite as a strong team, striving to achieve the same goals. Don’t underestimate the support you’re being given by the Aries New Moon. It’s telling you to insist, firmly and politely, that this is the time for each and every one of you to form a tight-knit unit and do things as one.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
Not everyone will grasp the best way to handle some kind of project or business venture that needs a certain amount of input before it can be made to function properly. It’s fortunate, therefore, that you’re about to feel the effects of Mercury making its way into the bricks-and-mortar sign of Taurus because you’ll be much better placed to offer advice to a number of people, which they should gratefully accept. The real advantage of Mercury’s move is that it will enable you to be sufficiently analytical and clear-thinking to come up with a strategy that will enable you and everybody else to make a success of what you’re all doing together. You of all people know that these things cannot be done on a whim. They require thought, planning, cooperation and hard work.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
Try to be patient when colleagues, friends or associates have less of a grasp than you do regarding money coming in and going out or the right and proper way to go about some aspects of whatever you’re doing together. You’ll be in a strong position, especially as the Saturn is befriending Mercury and encouraging you to keep abreast of every little thing that goes on. Obviously you won’t want to come across as a know-all. But you should be in a position to teach one or two people a great deal about the part they should be playing and the best way for them to collaborate with you and everyone else so that everything runs smoothly and efficiently. Will they take it from you? Yes. If you go about it in the right way.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
Every now and again it suits you to carve out a bit of space so that you can work entirely on your own. It may not be very sociable and there could be times when you miss the company of others. But you’re about to enter into a phase during which you and everyone else will be a lot better off if you’re exchanging information with one another and being entirely transparent about the progress you’re making or important aspects of the funding involved. In other words, this isn’t a good time for you to isolate yourself or keep secrets. And this has been made obvious by the fact that Mercury is entering Taurus and urging you to share all the information you have at your fingertips when it comes to routine work and responsibilities.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
Jupiter at the highest point of your chart is squaring up to Pluto, which is nothing to be alarmed about. But you probably do need to think about possible clashes between your private affairs and your professional life. Or is there some aspect of your image or reputation that might come under attack if you make certain moves? Rest assured that no-one is out to get you deliberately but you perhaps need to make sure that you’re not trying to mix business and pleasure at a time when a certain deal or area of responsibility calls for your undivided time and attention. It won’t last long but while it’s going on you almost certainly will have to put one or two personal matters to the back of your mind for a little while at least.
AQUARIUS Jan 21 - Feb 19
Listen carefully to friends or acquaintances coming up with ways in which they might be able to help or advise you with regard to a particular financial matter or area of work. Or is it that they want some support and guidance from you? Whichever the case may be, you can rely on a link being formed between the Sun and Neptune. It suggests that you’ll let your imagination run riot and you’ll come up with a lot of creative and innovative ideas so that you can get together with the individuals concerned and decide between you which are the most useful and productive ways forward. It’s absolutely vital that you exchange thoughts and feelings so that you can make progress with a great deal that’s beneficial to all of you, in various different ways.
PISCES Feb 20 - Mar 20
Although you won’t want to desert any of your existing talents for the sake of something new and exciting you could add one or two new strings to your bow. This is being emphasised by the New Moon occurring in the positive and driven sign of Aries which is encouraging you to take a completely fresh look at whatever you have and own. And you should ask yourself whether you could put some, if not all, of it to better use. True, there probably are times when certain of your colleagues, employers or associates question – or possibly even ridicule – some of your more creative or artistic ideas. You’re ruled by Neptune after all so you do sometimes lean towards poetic-sounding dreams and schemes. But this week you mustn’t be held back. Explore the unexplored.
