November 2011 Gemini Career Horoscope

Less is more

Hard work is a key with the Sun in intense Scorpio and your 6th House of Service until Nov. 22. Maximizing productivity and strengthening professional alliances calls on a combination of concentration and social skills. Fortunately, your ability to make positive connections with others is strengthened when your communicative ruling planet Mercury and attractive Venus enter enthusiastic Sagittarius and your 7th House of Others on Nov. 2. Your ability to charm people should be on display for all to see. This is great for selling your ideas, your services and your products.

There is a risk, though, of promising more than you can deliver. Even though your intentions may be perfectly clear, facilitator Mercury will start slowing down mid-month before turning retrograde on Nov. 24. This backwards shift can delay the flow of information, complicate conversations and mess with technology. Stay positive about whatever it is you're selling, but it's better to promise less and over-deliver than to come up short. This small measure of self-restraint also comes in handy when encountering individuals who are excited about what they can do for you. Grand ideas and bold statements can be irresistible, yet do some careful research before jumping on someone else's bandwagon.

The Sun's move into Sagittarius on Nov. 22 can heat you up with schemes and dreams that can make you even more persuasive than usual. Yet, putting yourself out on a limb without having a support system behind you is a perilous place to be when it comes to your professional interests.
