Helping an organization meet its goals by being a good team player can be excellent for your career during the first half of 2014. This favorable pattern is due to generous Jupiter's transit of your 11th House of Groups, where it will enhance the quality of your interactions with colleagues until July 16. Taking the lead in projects makes sense when you're emotionally comfortable with the situation.
All the good ideas in the world will not help if what you're doing doesn't feel right. So trust your gut, because opportunities with others increase when you're guided by your instincts. Still, tense aspects to Jupiter from provocative Pluto on January 31, shocking Uranus on February 26 and from both of these disruptive planets on April 20 require flexibility to adapt to suddenly changing and stressful situations.
Back to the drawing board
Partnerships and going public with projects can become complicated when your brainy planet Mercury is retrograde from February 6-28. This reversal starts in your 7th House of Relationships and ends in your 6th House of Employment, suggesting the need to re-evaluate alliances, and perhaps to change agreements you've made with others.
Similarly, another Mercury Retrograde period from October 4-25 in your 3rd House of Communication and your 2nd House of Resources signals the need to think about contacts and commitments that might be less profitable than anticipated. Backing out of a promise you've made isn't your style, but if you really think about the costs and benefits, you will probably recognize that it's better to cut your losses than to waste time and energy simply to save face.
