August 2012 Libra Career Horoscope

Make careful choices

Taking yourself seriously isn't a bad idea when it comes to your career this month. Sure, there are creative and exciting moments that lift your spirits. The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 1 lands in your playful 5th House of Creativity, which can make you especially entertaining. Being able to get attention then should be easy, but don't let a moment's glory distract you from working on your bigger goals.

On August 15, active Mars joins orderly Saturn in your sign, which is one of the most important astrological events of the year. This puts you in the middle of a five- or six-day period when the choices you make could have a lasting effect on your career. The downside of Mars joined with restrictive Saturn can be a feeling of frustration. In fact, you may get a direct "no" to something that you're wanting. This, however, is not a signal to give up. Saturn is the planet of discipline and Mars has to do with initiative, so starting a new routine of committed action is what will really make a difference.

If you're not into producing an enduring change that will take time to put into place, you probably shouldn't waste your time. You're either all-in to pursue a meaningful goal, or you might as well settle for what you have. On August 22, the Sun enters your secretive 12th House of Privacy, which is useful for completing unfinished tasks to clear the way to advance in a new direction.
