Taurus Career Horoscope: July 2013
Conversations need to be handled delicately this month with the sensitive Cancer Sun in your 3rd House of Communication until July 22. Earning the trust and confidence of others can be critical to keeping your professional plans on track. If you're looking for a job, talk to old friends and colleagues who are sympathetic to your wishes. It's important, though, to show interest in their activities too since coming across as selfish is not wise.
When discussing matters with a colleague, customer or potential employer the tone that you use is almost as important as the words themselves. The manner in which you speak carries a signal that will determine whether someone will support, be indifferent to or opposed to your ideas. In fact, the messenger planet Mercury is moving in reverse (retrograde) in your 3rd house until July 20, which demands more clarity in what you say and in how you think. Misunderstandings may arise innocently that can be troublesome so double-check important messages and data to avoid this. On the other hand, you can use the Mercury retrograde cycle to patch up working relationships and complete unfinished business. It's best not to push ahead too hard if there are tasks that have been left undone.
Your key planet Venus is in bold Leo and your 4th House of Foundations until July 22, stimulating creativity that will also be fueled when the Sun enters Leo that same day. Refining your proposals to make more effective presentations starts then, as well, when alluring Venus enters skillful Virgo and your 5th House of Self-Expression.
