February 2012 Scorpio Career Horoscope

Pick Up the Pace

You may need to pick up the pace in your daily life when sociable Venus fires into impatient Aries on February 7. This transit occurs in your 6th House of Work, challenging you to move bolder and faster. It could also indicate restlessness on your part, as you desire more exciting things to do.

While this could represent anger with colleagues or customers, it's meant to promote your sense of independence and remind you to take charge of your career. Yes, it's risky to leave a job or seek out a whole new line of work, so you don't have to act immediately. But if you are excited about starting a new business or getting training to alter your career path, this is a good time to begin moving in that direction.

The spirit of innovation and independence is also growing due to the Sun's presence in unconventional Aquarius and your 4th House of Roots. This might not produce settled feelings on the home front, but it can broaden your perspective on your possible professional future.

On February 18 the Sun moves into watery Pisces and your 5th House of Self-Expression, which bumps up your creativity and your acting ability. Your capacity to convince other people grows when you are inspired by what you're saying or doing. Fakery won't make it since you're likely to be busted for being untrue. But when you're honest with yourself your ability to line up the support of others will be very high.
