April 2012 Sagittarius Career Horoscope

Practice self-restraint

Your creativity and showmanship could be off the hook this month. April begins with the powerful Sun in your 5th House of Self-Expression, where it will embolden your actions until April 19. You should feel more natural on stage or in any situation where you can show off the pleasing power of your personality. This is likely to make a big impression on others, enabling you to get the response that you want.

However, the ease with which you present yourself has a risk involved with it. That's because following up on your proposals is going to take a very different kind of skill. Selling yourself is the first part, but doing the hard work necessary to live up to these higher expectations can be a challenge. It's wise, then, to avoid promising too much. Show the wealth of creativity and original thinking available to you with a bit of self-restraint.

Still, you also have the benefit of alluring Venus' entry into Gemini and your 7th House of Others on April 3. This makes it easy to make quick connections and attract bright, easygoing individuals. The verbal skills of this sign, though, might also align you with partners who sound good but could lack commitment. The gap between positive first impressions and actually producing results could be too large to overcome if you don't judge others more carefully.

In fact, you may get more tasks in your current position when energetic Mars turns direct and begins moving forward in your 10th House of Career and Public Responsibility on April 13.
