July 2012 Sagittarius Career Horoscope

Watch your cash flow

Handling co-workers, customers and authority figures requires a gentle touch for much of this month. The Sun is in sensitive Cancer and your 8th House of Deep Sharing, which tends to bring out the softer side of the people with whom you work. If you notice a person in a somber mood, a warm smile and word of encouragement is fine. But if you don't get the upbeat reaction you're seeking, back off instead of pouring on the charm.

The upside of this transit, which lasts until July 22, is the opportunity to build trust. This can be especially useful in financial partnerships. Finances could be shaken, in fact, by the Full Moon in your 2nd House of Income on July 3. This occurs in conservative Capricorn, but is joined by extreme Pluto and stressed by rebellious Uranus.

Sudden shifts of fortune can undermine your plans or put you in a difficult situation. Resources may dry up, requiring you to think quickly to seek out support elsewhere. The good news, though, is that you might come up with a brilliant idea that could alter the direction of your cash flow in a positive way.

It's still wise to be cautious when it comes to spending or investing in your professional life. Calculating Mercury turns retrograde in your visionary 9th House of Travel on July 14, beginning a three-week period when facts grow fuzzy, communication gets clunky and travel becomes more difficult. Double-check data and avoid raising hopes unreasonably. Aim high, but work on the ground floor level until you've built a solid foundation for your next big move.
