You tend to be fairly independent and prefer not to rely too much on others. However, holding your ground or getting ahead professionally may depend upon how you maximize the return from your working relationships. That's because your powerful ruling planet Mars is in psychologically astute Scorpio and your 8th House of Shared Resources this month.
Sure, getting entangled with others usually complicates matters, but putting in the effort to blend your abilities with colleagues is a worthwhile investment. Besides, with sociable Venus entering warm-hearted Leo and your expressive 5th House of Creativity on the September 6, you should have the self-confidence to slough off others' insensitive remarks.
The importance of getting along with co-workers, business partners and customers increases with the Sun's entry into Libra and your 7th House of Relationships on September 22. This begins a month-long period when your negotiating skills may be tested. Learning how to compromise and to accommodate others without giving up too much ground is a must. This solar transit is also favorable for making new connections.
Even the mellowest Ram may find his or her feathers ruffled late in the month. Hard solar aspects to transformational Uranus and Pluto on September 29 can provoke power struggles. Breaking the rules or going rogue are risks, yet they might be worth considering if you're ready for a radical change.
