Aries Career Horoscope: February 2013
Keep your antennae up
Cooperation and imagination are two keys to success this month. Discretion is essential, as you may need to work in the background without getting the recognition you desire and coming on strong could be taken in the wrong way.
February starts with the willful Sun in group-oriented Aquarius and your 11th House of Teamwork. Getting along with colleagues is probably more important than making yourself shine. Others might not readily accept innovative concepts that are totally logical to you. Having allies who support your positions makes the difference between struggling against the tide alone and riding a wave of collective confidence in your abilities.
Mars, your assertive ruling planet, slips into your 12th House of Obscurity on February 1, which is one reason being noticed can be so difficult. Still, you can use this time to shore up alliances, complete unfinished tasks and take breaks from the daily grind of work. Putting in time to heal your body, mind and soul can reinvigorate you and inspire your creativity. You could be blindsided by people who aren't acting in your best interests. Keeping your antennae up will help you get through work-related politics in better shape.
Ambitions grow when Mars forms a square with expansive Jupiter on February 10. Yet balancing your enthusiasm with discretion and patience will keep you from going too far too fast and pushing others' buttons. Your effectiveness and efficiency should be high when Mars favorably aligns with potent Pluto and responsible Saturn on February 15-16.
