October 2011 Aquarius Career Horoscope

Take a sensitive approach

Working in education, for a religious or political cause, in publishing or with people in faraway places makes sense for much of this month. October starts with several planets in your 9th House of Higher Mind and Travel. The Sun's presence there until October 23 signals opportunities that could come when doing business with people at the other end of the country or the other side of the world. 

Charming Venus is also in this part of your chart until October 8, making you more attractive when you're inspired by your work and expanding your mind or teaching. Cerebral Mercury's also in your 9th House of Higher Mind and Travel until October 13, reinforcing the intellectual assets you bring to any job. 

All three of these planets end the month in your 10th House of Career, which is favorable to your work life. Opportunities to lead projects and gain attention may increase. Yet these transits occur in the somewhat secretive sign of Scorpio, which requires a great deal of sensitivity to others. Your ideas and ideals may be brilliant, but if you forget about feelings, success may elude you. 

Scorpio is about sniffing out others' desires and fears, as well as assessing their abilities. Yet the information you seek may be not be obvious. It's not logic that will let you in on these secrets, but your people sense that can show you the way. Playing your cards close to the vest can draw others out so that they will let you know what they're willing and able to do.
