Calculating bold moves carefully makes sense professionally during the first half of the year. Expansive Jupiter in your sign until July 16 increases your chances for success. Stabilizing Saturn spends all of 2014 in your 5th House of Self-Expression and Creativity, which encourages you to master a carefully designed plan and then share it with others. A soft sell probably works better, as it makes people feel safer with your ideas.
Power struggles are possible around January 31 and April 20, when gigantic Jupiter opposes provocative Pluto. Yet no matter how strongly you feel about someone, think very carefully before making a major move. Even if a working relationship seems doomed to failure, sociable Venus shifts into forward gear in your 7th House of Others on January 31, putting faltering alliances back on track.
Spend money to make money
You may have to spend more to earn more when Jupiter enters your 2nd House of Money on July 16. This transit occurs in outgoing Leo, rewarding you for investing more in yourself. Paying for tools or training of the highest quality should boost your confidence, and hopefully increase your income.
Consider taking your career in a new direction this fall. That's because a Lunar Eclipse in innovative Aries lands in your 10th House of Profession on October 8. Just don't let yourself be pushed by others to take on tasks for which you feel unprepared. Taking chances by changing jobs makes sense when it's your own choice, though. But if you've taken on more than you can handle, consider letting go rather than forcing yourself to forge ahead.
