October 2011 Capricorn Career Horoscope

Work well with others

October begins with a passel of planets in your 10th House of Career, which is usually good for getting attention. Yet these planets are in accommodating Libra, where working in harmony with others and a frequent need for compromise is expected. 

You generally like to run the show, whether it's as the boss or in your specific job, but pleasing people and being a good negotiator are worth even more than pushing hard right now. In fact, handling colleagues, customers, bosses and partners with all the graciousness you can muster will serve you well. It's not wimpy to soften your position if that's what it takes to keep things afloat. If you're seeking a job, remember that a 4-star resume is not enough. Your ability to put others at ease requires charm and tempering your overt expressions of ambition. 

On October 11 the Full Moon in spontaneous Aries falls in your 4th House of Roots, which can stir up conflict in your household. A more desirable expression of this lunation is a sudden awakening as you realize that you need more freedom in your professional life. Starting your own business or doing something new with the one you have could be appealing, yet it may take time to get all your ducks in a row to make this happen. 

Pioneering Aries can provoke you to look in a totally different direction to find the professional fulfillment you seek. Just don't let impatience overcome common sense and undermine the good will you've built with others.
