February 2012 Capricorn Career Horoscope

Take Some Chances

Hard work is a good thing, but making money and increasing your value comes more from innovation than sheer effort this month. That's because the life-giving Sun is in quirky Aquarius and your 2nd House of Resources until February 18. Consider altering some of your patterns, values and ideas to open up new opportunities in your current line of work or to point you in a different career direction.

Don't be afraid to dream or even to think back to the past and remember what might have inspired you then. Saturn, your constructive and dutiful ruling planet, is turning retrograde in your 10th House of Profession on February 7. This might slow forward progress in handling your responsibilities or getting recognition for what you do. But it's another opportunity to reassess where you are, with the possibility of making some strategic shifts during the next four or five months.

The Full Moon in dramatic Leo falls in your 8th House of Deep Sharing on February 7. You may have to deal with overbearing bosses, co-workers or customers, but the point of this event is to coax you to come on stronger with others. Being more outgoing in presenting your ideas or seeking employment will get you the attention you deserve. It's better to stretch yourself and take some chances instead of playing it safe.

The Sun's shift into sensitive Pisces on February 18 rewards you for being kinder and gentler in your conversations. Showing that you care and that you are a compassionate person may be more valuable than being a stickler for details.
