Your career horoscope for the week beginning Monday 28th November by Peter Watson
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
It will soon seem perfectly natural to discuss future plans, budgets or controversial facts and figures with colleagues, employers or friends. And this will come as a relief to you because for some reason you’ve felt that it would be inappropriate to disclose everything you know. In fact, this is little more than a case of your wanting to be absolutely sure that you’re not going to breach any confidentiality agreements. And the reason this is all about to change is linked to the way in which Mercury, the planet of communication, is changing signs and making its way into the most visible and influential section of your chart. If anyone can talk openly and honestly and be seen to be getting things absolutely spot-on, it will be you before the week is out.
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
People might feel inhibited by the way in which you storm into areas they’re meant to be managing or controlling and you show them exactly how it should be done. It’s not really that you want to take over the whole show. But you do know a great deal about the territory concerned. And you are being buoyed up by excessive Jupiter forming a positive link with dynamic Mars. However, you will find it extremely difficult to stop yourself from making robust, dynamic inroads into places and situations that one or two individuals find rather daunting. All of which is fine, provided you make it clear that you are there to help and guide them rather than push them to one side. That would be a huge mistake to make right now.
GEMINI May 22 - Jun 21
True to form you’ll be inclined to share something you’ve gained or created with people who haven’t been in the right place at the right time. And with Uranus influencing a group-minded section of your chart you’ll want to show your charitable side. We’re probably talking here about colleagues or associates who could do with being treated kindly. But you have to remember that Uranus is squaring up to Venus this week. And this suggests that you may be tempted to give away assets, information or cash which, by rights, you share with one particular person. You’ll have to accept that it’s not in your gift to part with any of it without the agreement of whoever else is involved. Don’t let Uranus encourage you to behave in a way that creates shock waves all round.
CANCER Jun 22 - Jul 23
Quite often you’ve promised yourself that you would be more organised in your handling of admin, accounts or correspondence. But nothing changes very much. That’s not because you’re lazy. It’s just that other things take over and you never quite get round to doing what you intended to do. This week, however, you’ll be spurred on by the New Moon in Sagittarius providing the boost you need to suddenly leap to your feet, metaphorically speaking, and tackle all that stuff which has held you back for far too long. Just wait and see how much better you feel once you get started. It will be as though you’ve cleared away the cobwebs and you’ve put into place easy and very direct routes to those areas in which you have quite a lot to do.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
Ideas that you think are absolutely fantastic will become a talking point. And some of them will occur to you quite out of the blue while others are put forward by people you see on a day-to-day basis. Between you it should be possible to put some really ingenious plans in place. But before you get too carried away you have to remember that you are being influenced by Neptune, the planet of dreams and inventive schemes. And it’s possible that you’ll enthuse about style, originality and ingenuity rather than the practicalities involved. Certainly with Neptune challenging the Sun you should check and double-check to ensure that there are no great big holes in your thinking. Yes, by all means be adventurous but don’t go broke or mar your reputation in the process.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
Try not to get carried away with having Uranus in a section of your chart that encourages you to include other people in much of what you do. Yes, it can be good to share work and responsibilities with colleagues, associates or family members but you’re probably planning one or two things that could be perceived as slightly controversial if others talk about them in great detail before you’ve ironed out all the wrinkles. This is especially so at the moment because Uranus is clashing with Venus and this implies that you won’t have a very clear understanding of what the true worth of what you have in mind really is. You have quite a lot of research to do before you go public on whatever you intend to do next.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
You’ll think it’s a great pity if you’re suddenly informed that certain people can’t go along with your vision of a scheme that you’ve been designing in your mind for some while. It probably is quite ambitious. But a Sun-Neptune link suggests you’ve started to believe that it’s your job to create something psychedelic, inspiring and over-the-top and certain others will be too scared to go along with you. So you have to look to see whether they have a valid point. Are you really getting too caught up with magical thinking which is unlikely to produce results in the end? If that really is the case you must adjust your mind-set. But if you’re still convinced you’re right and they’re wrong you need to talk them round to your way of thinking.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
For quite some while you must have realised that you have a wealth of talents, experience, assets and resources at your fingertips. And perhaps you’ve regretted the fact that you haven’t done as much with them as you might have done. This isn’t because you’re lazy or uninspired. It’s more likely that you’ve been fully occupied elsewhere. Or possibly no good ideas have come to mind and encouraged you to enter into new areas. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel the urge to put everything you’ve got into a project or venture that you’ll find challenging but, at the same time, exciting and potentially rewarding. After all you’re being influenced by the New Moon in the section of your chart that governs everything you have and own. Capitalise on it. .
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
Without appearing to boast and brag about it, you can probably inform some of your workmates, family or friends that you are being given access to information, assets or perhaps premises with which you may be able to start producing something interesting and worthwhile. Even if you’ve known it for a while you’ve kept it under wraps to avoid generating a lot of envy or perhaps even a bit of nastiness. After all, some people might love to be in your shoes. They’ll feel that they’re seriously disadvantaged in comparison with you. So you have to be careful about the way in which you put the facts across. But be glad that Mercury, planet of thought and speech, is changing signs and helping you to be more skilled with communications than ever.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
Plans are taking shape but have you overlooked the importance of checking budgets and timelines very carefully? A Mars-Jupiter link suggests you’re beginning to wonder whether you’ve overspent or underestimated how much would have to be done for you to meet deadlines. Of course with Jupiter involved it’s easy to forget how costs mount up without barely noticing it. And under the influence of Mars you might feel quite robust about what you’ve been doing until, in a quiet moment, you stop and reflect on it in a very serious way. Don’t panic. Just take a step back and look at the situation from an entirely objective position. And certainly don’t keep anything in place which will almost certainly bleed you dry or leave you feeling rather silly about not getting the job done in time.
AQUARIUS Jan 21 - Feb 19
Listen to your inner voice telling you to invite certain others to collaborate with you on a work, financial or business venture that needs to be handled by a group as opposed to one individual such as yourself. Up to now you might have imagined that you could take on board everything that has to be done in order to achieve the desired outcome. But now, as you feel the earliest effects of the Sun’s clash with Neptune, your sixth sense will warn you that you might have come close to taking on rather too much. So why not take a short while to re-think the situation and see how it would work if you were to share the heavy lifting, responsibilities and of course the eventual rewards with people you like and trust?
PISCES Feb 20 - Mar 20
Have you been sitting on the fence when it comes to a particular deal, arrangement or contract? If so, you’ll no doubt make up your mind that you’re going to show your more steely, incisive streak and go straight to the heart of the matter. It might not come easily at first. You probably do need to shrug off a habit you have of procrastinating and justifying it to yourself in some way. You should let the New Moon hovering over the highest and most visible point of your chart encourage you to make sure you’re seen from this week on as someone who can be trusted to weigh up the facts and get busy. You don’t have to rush it but you do have to remain focussed and engaged with the business in hand.
