October 2011 Aries Career Horoscope

Find power in partnerships

Your independent nature is one of your greatest gifts. It allows you to forge ahead into new territory when others see only obstacles, and it makes you a self-starter who doesn't need a lot of external motivation to push hard. 

This month, though, is all about relationships as October begins with the willful Sun, attractive Venus, brainy Mercury and reliable Saturn in accommodating Libra and your 7th House of Partners. Patience and graciousness are essential to maintain the support of colleagues and customers and to be well received by potential new employers. Recognizing that you can get more done when you work with someone whose talents complement yours could make the difference between frustration and fulfillment. 

Creative juices should be flowing with your dynamic ruling planet Mars in expressive Leo and your 5th House of Entertainment and Imagination. While this may boost your confidence, playing it cool and not overstating your case or pushing too hard is vital. 

Skepticism from others reigns when Venus, Mercury and the Sun shift into scrutinizing Scorpio and your 8th House of Deep Sharing on the October 8, October 13 and October 23, respectively. Others are not going to respond well to pressure, digging in their heels to resist it. Yet the right allies can open doors that have been locked to you and come up with resources and assistance to fuel your plans. 

Sharing power is necessary to make these good things happen, and including colleagues and partners in your plans will earn trust that's easily lost if you go rogue and spring surprises on them.
