October 2011 Gemini Career Horoscope

Keep your nose to the grindstone

Creative ideas should be flowing this month with your brainy ruling planet Mercury, artistic Venus and the Sun in your 5th House of Self-Expression. Coming up with attractive concepts may be easy, but it's being able to follow up on them that will tell the tale in your professional life. 

Facing the realities of work place resources starts to kick in with Venus' shift into scrutinizing Scorpio and your 6th House of Employment on the October 8. Colleagues could appear to be less generous while limits of time, money and personnel put your plans in a less flattering light. 

On the plus side, your powers of persuasion can be impressive if you stick to facts and don't promise more than you can deliver. When Mercury enters this part of your chart on October 13 communications may be muddled by secrecy and mistrust. Disciplining your mind (and mouth) to be careful about what you say will not only help you to avoid some problems but could deepen your perceptions about your job. 

The importance of being more calculating in professional matters is underscored by the Sun's entry into your 6th House of Work and Daily Routines on October 23. If you can keep your nose to the grindstone, you will not only get better at what you do, but you could get some hard-earned respect. You may not receive immediate recognition, but you could get more satisfaction about what you do. If you're discontent in your current situation, reconnecting with people from the past could help you move in a more rewarding direction.
