July 2012 Cancer Career Horoscope

Fake it 'til you make it

The Sun in your sign can warm up your personality this month and make you a more persuasive person. However, if you're not feeling it, it's hard to fake it. Your feelings are on your face, so you might as well not try to hide them. Of course, taking care of business pays the bills, so do your best to thoroughly analyze your professional situation before doing anything dramatic about it.

Behaving in a diplomatic manner makes sense with assertive Mars' move into cooperative Libra on July 3. This can force you to step back from the brink to take a more objective look at career. Sure, discontent could surface with the Capricorn Full Moon on that same day. This powerful event can stir conflict with customers or colleagues. Yet if you're seeking a new job in a radically different field, the boldness of this shocking lunation could provide the electricity you need to make a powerful impact.

If you're being bullied, though, or you are undermined by someone who is supposed to be on your side, it's better to face the issue now than to let it simmer inside of you until you explode. Your impact on others may be surprising with this Full Moon, because the reactions you get from them will be much stronger than usual.

On July 22, the Sun enters your 2nd House of Self-Worth and the expressive sign Leo. It's time to pump yourself up and be a better promoter of your abilities. Coming on stronger might rub some people the wrong way, but it could be a quicker road to success.
