Your career horoscope for the week commencing 5th June by Peter Watson
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
Some other people might become over-excited about assets or resources that are becoming quite plentiful these days. But you’ll know better. And you’ll realise that it would be a big mistake to count on something which is unlikely to be as valuable or worthwhile as is commonly rumoured. You do have Venus on your side as it leaves your sign and makes its way into the solid, sensible sign of Taurus where it’s dominating one of the financial sections of your chart. You’re absolutely right to manage your expectations and not allow other people’s zealous and over-enthusiastic approach impact your more logical way of looking at the situation. And if, later on, you’re on the receiving end of rather more than you ever thought likely or possible that will suit you perfectly, won’t it?
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
Engage as quickly as possible with a scheme being put forward by those people who usually know what they’re doing. And perhaps you should ask yourself whether it’s time for you to be a little more adventurous in your approach to financial or professional openings or possibilities. The Full Moon in one of the financial sections of your chart suggests that not far away there are one or two people who would like you to pool your resources with theirs. Of course the Full Moon might bring out a slightly nervous or uncertain streak in you. But even if that is the case you should seek out reliable information and research so that if you do embark on something fairly challenging you’ll have access to everything you need to make a success of it.
GEMINI May 22 - Jun 21
Think long and hard about an aspect of your financial situation or your work that has become a source of concern for you. Perhaps you’ve allowed things to drift on for rather too long without giving serious consideration to what has really been going on. This week, however, with Mars forming a link with Venus, you should be able to work out the best way in which to capitalise on what you have and own. And you can then decide how to rid yourself of those responsibilities and commitments that demand a lot of you without giving anything back in return. Just make sure that when discussing such matters with the relevant people you don’t come across as aggressive or appear to be pointing the finger of blame at those who don’t deserve it.
CANCER Jun 22 - Jul 23
People seem to have ignored the fact that you’ve been working extremely hard while they themselves haven’t made much effort within the area in which you and they are involved. And that could become irksome for you because you’ll wonder whether they intend to continue to take you for granted. Of course this week’s Full Moon will affect you in this regard because it is highlighting the section of your chart that is all about being conscientious and hard-working. And you may well feel your resentment about the situation bubbling to the surface and making it hard for you to remain polite and respectful. Remember that although it might be good for you to get certain things off your chest you’ll be doing yourself no favours by coming across as rude and offensive.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
By now you are probably growing tired of having to listen to a great deal of argy-bargy between colleagues, associates or employers. And with Venus the planet of values reaching the highest point in your chart you might start wondering about the true worth of being part of something which is so often impacted by a lot of anger or jealousy. Of course Venus is opening your eyes to the fact that you much prefer to function within an environment in which people are polite and respectful to one another. That may not always be possible but right now you really do need to be in a calm, convivial place working alongside people who are nice to one another. Act on what your instincts are about to tell you, with a little help from Venus.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
For some while you may have wondered why you’ve found it hard to resist certain purchases or you’ve overspent on materials or some other aspect of your work that needs to be monitored rather carefully. Jupiter having been retrograde or appearing to move backwards through your chart for the past four months or so has made it difficult for you to decide whether or not it’s worth investing your skills, labour, experience and capital in something which may turn out to be a damp squid. It’s quite likely that Jupiter has been encouraging you to think big – and that might not always have been the best thing to do. So tell yourself that now, with Jupiter moving forwards once more, you’ll be much more street-wise when it comes to getting value for money.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
No matter how close you might feel to one particular colleague, friend or associate, you need to think carefully about suggestions that revolve around the two of you working hand-in-hand with one another. As with all such ideas there are advantages and disadvantages. It’s fortunate therefore that Venus is entering Taurus where it will be impacting the way in which you relate to others on a professional, business or financial basis. This will help you evaluate certain plans or projects being discussed and enable you to decide whether they are right for you. And you mustn’t be afraid to say that you prefer not to be involved if that turns out to be the case. You’re at a point where everything needs to be transparent, straightforward and running like a well-oiled machine.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
During the past few days or weeks you might have been in two minds as to whether you should raise a particular financial or business matter with someone else who is closely involved with it. You haven’t wanted to make waves unnecessarily. But this week’s Full Moon is about to make you realise that if you remain silent you’re in danger of losing out quite considerably if everything were to go wrong. So it probably is time for you to let the Full Moon encourage you to put forward your interpretation of what’s been going on, including the bad parts as well as the good parts. This is no time for some sort of cover-up. But do resist becoming tearful or over-emotional if you meet resistance from one or two others.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
Pressure of work or the demands of some other aspect of your life might leave you feeling quite stressed during the next week or so. And it will be up to you to decide whether you can afford to scale down your involvement with certain people with whom you share professional responsibilities. Or perhaps you need to re-think a function you perform that demands a tremendous amount from you without necessarily repaying you in a way that seems fair. One of the reasons you will be thinking along these lines is the fact that Venus the planet of even-handedness and values is making its way into the structured sign of Taurus and forcing you to rethink a set-up that perhaps isn’t as good for you as it once seemed to be.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
It’s fairly likely that you have misled yourself into believing that a particular course of action could lead you to that pot of gold that you’ve always hoped to discover in some secret hideaway. Certainly with Jupiter hovering over a very materialistic and business-minded point in your chart you’ve been especially aware recently of opportunities that might change your fortune for the better. In fact, you’ve probably been extremely over-optimistic about ways in which you might benefit from a certain plan or project. And if your thinking has been somewhat distorted it has a lot to do with the fact that Jupiter’s been retrograde or appearing to travel backwards to this very visible sector of your chart. Be glad that this week Jupiter starts moving forwards again and suddenly reality and common sense should kick in.
AQUARIUS Jan 21 - Feb 19
Conflict between your working life and the demands of your home and family mustn’t be allowed to spoil what’s meant to be a rather nice week as far as you’re concerned. You do have Mars still making its way through a very conscientious, industrious section of your chart. So that’s where you’ll feel you should put a great deal of your energy and enthusiasm. But do remember that Mars is joining forces with Venus and this should mean that you’ll become very skilled at deciding where your priorities truly lie and how to allocate your precious time to one area or another so that you get the best possible results. Do remember that even with Venus very much on your side it might be nigh-on impossible to keep everybody happy.
PISCES Feb 20 - Mar 20
Having battled to keep a certain situation running smoothly and effectively you might be wondering whether it’s all been worth it. In fact, the build-up to the Sagittarian Full Moon occurring towards the end of the week should help remind you that your recent achievements have brought you to the attention of people who are encouraged to see exactly what you’re capable of and how resourceful you can be when it’s demanded of you. Of course a Full Moon does throw a great deal of light on areas which might otherwise remain undiscovered. And it’s quite possible that over the next few days you’ll be singled out for possessing something you never knew you had. Look forward to being helped to capitalise on it by someone who wants what’s best for you.
