October 2011 Leo Career Horoscope

Invest in the future

Communication is always important when it comes to work, but it is even more significant this month. October starts with four planets in gracious Libra and your 3rd House of Conversation. Lovely Venus' presence in this smart and chatty part of your chart is excellent for turning on the charm. Showing interest in what others have to say can gain you trust that will strengthen your professional relationships. 

On October 8, though, Venus moves into passionate Scorpio and your 4th House of Home and Family, making this a good time for private meetings in out-of-the-way places. Taking time away from your job to shore up things at home can be a wise investment in your well being and your professional future. 

In fact, chatty Mercury follows suit and enters this domestic part of your chart on October 13. Confidentiality in communications becomes especially important. You may have big news, but be sure to keep it to yourself until the right moment. 

October 13 can also be a critical date because your ruling planet, the Sun, joins serious Saturn as well. You might be frustrated by a lack of progress or recognition. However, if you do hit a wall, it lets you know where you stand and can help you make a commitment to changing the course of your career. But this is a long-term project, so don't be in a hurry because whatever you start to set in motion now will take a good deal of time to put into place.
