August 2012 Taurus Career Horoscope

Modesty is the best policty

What goes on in private conversations could be especially important to your career this month. Venus, your charming ruling planet, enters caring Cancer and your 3rd House of Communication on August 7, inspiring personal discussions that have professional implications.

This is also the day before chatty Mercury rights itself and begins moving forward on August 8, after three weeks in reverse. Information should begin to flow more freely, and creative ideas may finally be ready to be shared. Still, the trust you earn by showing that you care for others has long-term benefits that are probably worth more than getting some ego-stroking praise this month. It's great to have pride in what you do, but handling it modestly shows that you're someone who can be trusted.

Work issues may get dicey around August 15 when energetic Mars rams into stubborn Saturn in your 6th House of Employment. Delays are possible, as is, alas, rejection, yet you can turn one day's "no" into a future "yes" by buckling down and showing how dedicated you are to the task at hand. But if you're really unhappy with your job or are trying to find a new one, making a commitment to developing your skills now will pay dividends down the road.

On August 22 the Sun shifts into earthy Virgo and your 5th House of Creativity, which is favorable for making presentations during the subsequent 30-days. Just be sure that you've rehearsed and rehearsed so that you come across with the precision and polish that are needed to show that you know what you're doing.
