April 2012 Taurus Career Horoscope

Take a step back

You might feel like you're being ignored in the first half of the month, which as it turns out might not be a bad thing. The Sun is in your 12th House of Obscurity until April 19, making it harder to get attention. Yet you can use this time to repair professional relationships and to get some rest. Taking a step back from the front lines gives you a fresh perspective on your current working situation and your hopes for the future.

Communicative Mercury's forward shift in your 11th House of Groups on April 4 may get some information flowing among colleagues and friends. Yet active Mars is still backpedaling until April 13, making it hard to get new projects off the ground before then. If you have a plan, putting in the effort to refine every last detail may seem like more work than necessary, yet it could pay off in a big way when you finally make your move.

In fact, you may discover additional ways to earn income or increase your value with your alluring ruling planet Venus entering diverse Gemini and your 2nd House of Resources on April 3. Just be discriminating about how you spend your time, effort and money, as this transit could make a so-so idea sound better than it really is.

There's a significant shift on April 19 as the Sun enters your sign to increase your self-confidence and raise your profile. Demonstrating leadership and initiative in the following 30-days will be helpful to your career.
