February 2012 Cancer Career Horoscope

Loosen Up

Your challenge this month is to work with people who don't follow your rules, or to deal with new and unpredictable partners. February begins with the Sun in quirky Aquarius and your 8th House of Deep Sharing. This can attract individuals who may appear to be reckless and disrespectful of your ways of working. But it's smarter to stretch your mind, expand your tastes and try to appreciate unfamiliar methods than to lock into a defensive mode.

Besides, when you're willing to loosen up a little you might discover better ways to get things done, or, if you're lucky, a whole new line of work. And if you can't appreciate the way a colleague or customer gets things done, do your best to be tolerant so you can reduce stress and avoid conflict.

In fact, if you're willing to be bold and creative on February 7, it can gain you attention and maybe even increase your income. Alluring Venus moves into aggressive Aries and your 10th House of Career then, triggering restlessness and motivating you to take professional risks. New people and new work-related relationships can be stepping-stones to success.

This is also the day of the Full Moon in dramatic Leo and your 2nd House of Income. You may be tempted to make an impulsive purchase, but if it's a reasonable long-term investment in your future, it could be a good idea. Besides, this signals the need to make more noise about yourself. Promoting the value of your services works best with a display of confidence and a willingness to toot your own horn.
