November 2011 Scorpio Career Horoscope

Stretching the limits

November begins with the Sun in your passionate sign, which can get you more attention and raise your profile. However, if you're uncomfortable being in the spotlight, you might not be ready to take advantage of the recognition that you can receive. The Sun's presence in Scorpio until Nov. 22 is a time to do things on your own initiative. Don't wait for support or encouragement from others if there are things you can do to enhance your professional ambitions.

Taking some risks in aiming higher and expecting more also makes sense with two encouraging astrological events on Nov. 2: chatty Mercury and sociable Venus enter risk-taking Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Self-Worth. These transits suggest that stretching the limits of your expectations is a valuable thing to do. Don't be afraid to imagine much greater rewards from your job with respect to income and personal satisfaction. You're painting pictures of a brighter future that may take a long time to achieve, but that are in the conception stage right now. In fact, on Nov. 22 the life-giving Sun enters Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Personal Resources to give your aspirations another boost.

Working well with colleagues, though, is especially important as of Nov. 10 when your ruling planet Mars enters skillful Virgo and your 11th House of Groups, and the Full Moon in stabilizing Taurus falls in your 7th House of Partners. Aligning yourself with competent and reliable individuals makes life easier while connecting with those who don't deliver can pull you down.
