Gemini Career Horoscope: March 2013
Effort creates excellence
The big news for you this month is the change of direction of Mercury, the ruler of your sign. The messenger planet shifts into forward gear on March 17 in your 10th House of Career. This ends a three-week retrograde period there, which can cause misunderstandings and delay the flow of job-related information. Mercury will slowly pick up speed through the end of the month as data finally starts flowing more freely and errors and confusion become less frequent.
When March begins the willful Sun, alluring Venus, aggressive Mars and mental Mercury are all in your 10th house, which puts a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. This might gain you some attention and respect, but be careful about taking on more than you can handle or accepting a task that is not clearly defined. Having a generous spirit and being optimistic are usually plusses, but not when they take you away from your primary obligations.
Still, the New Moon on the 11th lands in your career house to get you dreaming about more imaginative ways to do you job. Since this lunation occurs in idealistic Pisces, it's essential that you get more than money for your work.
The Sun and Venus move into bold Aries and your 11th House of Groups on March 20 and 21, putting a greater emphasis on collaboration. Impulsive Aries is great for connecting with energizing individuals and innovation yet there's a combative side to this feisty sign that can spur conflict with colleagues. Stay cool to avoid inflaming others.
