September 2011 Leo Career Horoscope

Manage Your Resources

Money matters matter quite a bit this month, which starts with the Virgo Sun in your 2nd House of Income. Its presence there until September 23 is a reminder to focus on managing your resources more carefully. In fact, investing in gaining new skills or upgrading the ones you have may seem costly now but will pay off in the long run. Analytical Virgo, though, can sometimes focus more on what's lacking than recognizing the value of who you are and what you do. It's fine to criticize yourself if it includes a fair recognition of your talents and motivates you to make the most of them. 

Optimism and opportunities may flow from the Sun's favorable alignment with lucky Jupiter on September 2, but brainy Mercury's shift into Virgo on September 8 is a reminder that taking care of details can be a key to success. The bolder side of your personality starts kicking in with assertive Mars' entry into your sign on September 18. The warrior planet's presence in your 1st House of Personality is excellent for being a leader and taking the initiative in your professional life. However, your confidence can rub some people the wrong way if it's not tempered with sensitivity to others' feelings. The boost of energy you get with this Mars transit is balanced with the Sun's entry into sociable Libra on September 23. This shift into your communicative 3rd house is great for gathering information, so keep an open mind. Sharing your ideas is also favored as long as you're flexible enough to tailor your remarks to your audience's needs.
