You tend to be enthusiastic and visionary when it comes to your job. Your optimism about the future and ability to motivate and educate others are major professional assets. However, this month the focus is on details, methods and systems, the kinds of routine stuff that often leaves you bored to tears. Yet if you fail to manage your responsibilities at the highest level of excellence, you're likely to hear about it.
This is because the Sun is in analytical Virgo and your 10th House of Career until September 22. It can put you in a position of greater authority but comes with greater scrutiny from others. Avoid taking on more than you can handle because the quality of your production counts more than the quantity now. Narrow your focus to be masterful in one task, project or position.
Mental Mercury is also in Virgo until September 9 to sharpen your mind and increase efficiency. But this also brings a more critical point-of-view, making flaws seem bigger than they are. There's also stress on September 9 as active Mars in Leo and your 9th House of Big Ideas forms a hard square with demanding Saturn in Scorpio. This means that there's little room for mistakes at this time. If you deviate from the rules or from a plan, you're likely to get caught very quickly. Sure, work might be harder, but if you buckle down, you can earn respect for your commitment and concentration.
September 26 should be sweet as lovely Venus aligns favorably with your lucky ruling planet Jupiter. If you're going to take chances, this is the time to do it.
