September 2011 Capricorn Career Horoscope

Compromise with Integrity

The connections that you have in faraway places could come in handy this month. September begins with the Sun in your 9th House of Distant Lands, suggesting that working with someone at a distance can be helpful to your career. Another meaning of the 9th house, though, is higher education, indicating that you may want to seek out some additional courses that can either push you ahead in your current line of work or lead you to a more rewarding type of job. You may also have insights into how to increase the efficiency of systems with the Sun's presence in pragmatic Virgo. 

Diplomacy becomes a major issue as three planets move into the socially skillful and accommodating sign of Libra this month. Lovely Venus leads the parade on September 14 and is followed there by the Sun on September 23 and cerebral Mercury on September 25. These transits occur in your 10th House of Career, making them especially significant to your professional success. Learning how to compromise without losing your integrity is a major challenge, yet one that can reward you greatly when you meet it. Demonstrating leadership without appearing bossy is part of this story. Sure, you may be certain that you know the best ways to get things done or what is the best move to make. But if you present yourself as an authority figure who doesn't listen to others, it will work against you. A more conciliatory and open-minded attitude, on the other hand, can do wonders for your career.
