January 2012 Scorpio Career Horoscope

Chart your course

Keeping your promises and requiring others to stick to theirs is a good way to start the New Year. That's because the Sun is in responsible Capricorn and your 3rd House of Communication until January 20, adding weight to your words. Building trust is essential now, which comes from carefully researching any subject you're going to address in a serious way. Yes, there are times for speculation and exploring your imagination, but grounding what you say with facts is a more constructive way to go.

The Full Moon on January 9 is in sensitive Cancer and your 9th House of Distant Lands, which could spur a desire for travel. You may feel like you're in the wrong place in your life and yearn for a different work situation. Considering a change of course makes sense as long as you approach it slowly and carefully. Using the cautious side of your nature is vital when contemplating a bold move.

On January 13, sweet Venus enters tender Pisces and your expressive 5th House of Creativity. This ignites your imagination. It allows you to take on a more dramatic way of communication, which can be very compelling and convincing. Just make sure that whatever you're saying isn't a pie in the sky idea, because selling something that disappoints others is worse than not making the sale at all.

Your traditional ruling planet Mars turns backward (retrograde) in your 11th House of Groups on January 23 to bring back old issues among colleagues and friends, also giving you another chance to make things right.
