Your career horoscope for the week commencing 7th November by Peter Watson
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
Having wondered whether or not you should apply your talents, experience and available funds to an exciting but slightly risky business, you’ll soon reach your decision. And you’ll be helped by the Full Moon highlighting the section of your chart that governs all that you have and own. This suggests that you’ll at last admit that you do have a great deal to offer colleagues, employers or associates and that you have been too modest and self-deprecating in the past. Now that kind of behaviour has to stop. Does this mean that you will become showy, arrogant and too full of yourself? Absolutely not. But you have got to stop denying that you have something special to offer. And it’s about time certain people admitted that they’ve been secretly aware of it for some time.
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
It’s a pity that in recent weeks you might not have felt inspired to involve yourself in areas that other people have thought appropriate for you. Perhaps you have imagined that these individuals have their own agenda and that they’re thinking more of themselves than you by steering you in the direction concerned. Over the next few days however as you feel the impact of Mars reaching a very decisive and potent point in your chart you’ll begin to realise that you should be able to do extremely well out of exploring the territory in question and finding out how well you might fit into it. Yes, you’ll need to be curious, confident and optimistic. But you mustn’t go to such extremes that you’re perceived by others as pushy and potentially unpleasant to have around.
GEMINI May 22 - Jun 21
Colleagues or associates might not see the potential in a plan or scheme that could possibly introduce all of you who are involved to a way of life that’s quite different from the one you currently lead. But you are being impacted by the way in which Venus is entering the practical, conscientious sign of Capricorn. It means that you’ll become highly skilled at seeing opportunities that are quite a long way ahead and you’ll know the point at which to seize them for yourself. Fortunately, Venus is the planet that helps you recognise the true value of whatever you pursue and it’s extremely unlikely that you will end up chasing rainbows – only to be bitterly disappointed in the end. It won’t happen. See what you can do to encourage others to follow your lead.
CANCER Jun 22 - Jul 23
Mars entering Aquarius means that in the case of your solar chart you should find that you have the energy to persuade colleagues or friends that they should collaborate with you on a particular plan. But of course Mars also brings out that bit in you that can sometimes make you a little too sure of yourself – perhaps even pushy. And you’ll have to monitor your behaviour to ensure that you become persuasive but not dictatorial. You also need to remember that one particular person has a way of getting under your skin at the very point at which you need to remain extremely calm and collected. Perhaps it’s best to steer clear of this individual, especially at the point at which you might well be negotiating something extremely promising – but also delicate and complex.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
People have no doubt been wanting you to share with them some of the ideas you’ve been developing with regard to an ambitious project or an area in which there should be room for you and them to grow and to achieve a tremendous amount. For some reason best known to yourself you’ve wanted to keep things under wrap. But the build-up to the Taurus Full Moon lighting up a power-packed point in your chart means you’ll decide you know enough of what’s required of you to make a start on the plan in question. You’ll suddenly feel very happy to involve those who’ve been waiting on the sidelines because this Full Moon will at last persuade you that the time is right. Look forward to making the first of a series of important moves.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
Certain tasks have been left to take care of themselves but you’re about to realise that this state of affairs cannot continue indefinitely. And Mars in Aquarius will be generating a lot of action in the section of your chart that’s all about routine responsibilities. This then could be your cue to get moving. And as you do so, people will start to take a lot of notice of you and they’ll make the kind of noises that suggest that they, too, want to be part of what you’re doing. All of which is fine except that you must insist that anyone invited to work alongside you does have to be as industrious and reliable as you are. Any slackers or time-wasters will bring out that angry streak in you that’s not good to see.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
The Full Moon will soon be illuminating an important sector of your chart and a big part of your life deserving of the kind of attention you haven’t been able to provide recently. It’s possible that you’ve skirted around a lot of the details when it comes to a contract or shared financial, business or property deal. Yes, you have been extremely busy elsewhere and you haven’t had much time to scrutinise the finer points of this arrangement in which you have been placing a lot of trust. But when, over the next few days, the Full Moon exposes something that really does need to be repaired or rethought with some urgency, it’s up to you to do it – irrespective of whatever other demands are being made on you at the time.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
By now you are probably growing tired of hearing certain of your colleagues, friends, neighbours or loved ones complaining about a set-up which they don’t fully understand. Initially you’ll decide that they should simply have been more attentive and shown more interest in what has been going on. But this week you’ll begin to realise that they’re struggling to take on board the kind of thing that really does need a great deal of explanation. And with Mercury entering the big-hearted and optimistic sign of Sagittarius this week, you’ll very soon decide that you’re the one to teach these people what they need to know. Yes, that all seems fine provided of course you don’t end up actually doing the work rather than telling these other people how they should be doing it themselves.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
Provided you resist the urge to become irritatingly bossy and heavy-handed, you should be able to help those at a loss, financially or in some other practical way. You are being impacted by Saturn, the great teacher of the Zodiac, as it slowly makes its way through your sign and forms a connection with Pluto. And Pluto happens to be travelling through the section of your chart that governs all the assets, resources and money you have at your disposal. So on one hand you’ll know what has to be done. On the other hand, you might become a bit of a control freak when teaching others what they should know and how they should go about things. Promise yourself that you’ll find a way to be accommodating but without becoming in any way dictatorial.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
Cash flow can be a problem for most of us at some time or another. But this week especially you may have to assert yourself within territory in which quite a lot has been going wrong financially. Other people will assume for some reason that you’ll step in and provide whatever’s required to remedy the situation. What they don’t realise is that with Mars leaving your sign and entering one of the money-related sections of your chart you’ll suddenly become much more determined to do what rightfully falls within your remit but you’ll no longer be at the beck and call of others. Yes, one or two people will be put out because you’ll refuse to run around after them. But they’ll get used to it eventually – because they’ll have to, won’t they?
AQUARIUS Jan 21 - Feb 19
Although you’re generous and charitable enough to want to help other people out, you’re becoming snowed under with problems that really shouldn’t be your concern. And because the individuals involved seek your advice more and more they’re impinging on your time and energy that should be reserved for whatever responsibilities you should be handling in your own life. Do bear in mind that Mercury, the planet of communications, will be hovering over the highest point of your chart until Saturday of this week and then it will move into Sagittarius. So make this the deadline by which you will have explained to certain people what they should do about their commitments and problem areas – and from then on you’ll leave them mostly to themselves. It will be good for them as well as for you.
PISCES Feb 20 - Mar 20
Irritating though it might be that people in authority have sworn you to secrecy with regard to some interesting developments, you really should keep to your word. This might not seem to be a problem to you right now but by the weekend when Mercury changes signs you’ll see how you might benefit everybody involved by becoming more transparent and by sharing much of what you know. If you find yourself on the horns of the dilemma regarding this situation simply explain to those concerned that it’s time for them to allow you to disclose what you know to the people around you whose lives will be directly affected by whatever’s likely to happen. With Mercury on your side you shouldn’t have too much trouble persuading people that your way is the best way.
