August 2012 Pisces Career Horoscope

Prove your worth

August opens with the Sun in dramatic Leo and your 6th House of Employment. This can embolden you to act with greater creativity and to take clever risks on your job. You're likely to get more attention, so it might as well be for something innovative that you're pushing forward.

Nevertheless, mental Mercury is lagging behind in Leo, as it's retrograde until August 8. Once it turns forward, information should move more easily and your work-related ideas will be more easily expressed. Charm plays a significant role, as well, when adorable Venus moves into cuddly Cancer and your outgoing 5th House on August 7. You can earn the trust of other people by describing big ideas in down-to-earth terms. There's something about simplicity and a sense of familiarity that makes fresh concepts more acceptable.

On August 17, the Leo New Moon in your 6th House aligns favorably with active Mars and responsible Saturn. These two tough planets are in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, indicating that you need the support and/or the good judgment of a reliable ally to help you meet your goals. You may need to work hard to earn the respect you need to get this assistance, so slow down and prove that you're worth their confidence.

The Sun emerges from the bottom half of your chart on August 22, as it shifts into pragmatic Virgo and your 7th House of Partners. Seek out skilled individuals who give you realistic assessments of your progress if you want to benefit from these relationships.
