July 2012 Taurus Career Horoscope

Focus is the key to success

The careful attention you bring to conversations can prove beneficial to your professional life this month. July starts with the Sun in tender Cancer and your 3rd House of Communication. Speaking with sensitivity to others and listening intently to what they have to say can strengthen working relationships. In fact, getting along with others is essential to maintaining harmony on the job or making beneficial new connections.

Assertive Mars enters diplomatic Libra and your 6th House of Employment on July 3, spurring you to mend fences with those you already know and to reach out to new people. Aligning yourself with compatible colleagues can increase your productivity, and perhaps boost your income.

Focus, though, is a key to success because the powerful Capricorn Full Moon, also on July 3, is joined by purging Pluto. It's amazing how effective you can be in raising status or making a breakthrough in a new job -- or even an entirely different line of work -- when you eliminate distractions now.

Complications at home could arise when communicative Mercury turns retrograde in your domestic 4th House on July 14. Avoiding family drama over stupid subjects saves wear and tear. It also leaves you time to recall old creative concepts that may be ready for reconsideration. The New Moon in Cancer on July 18 is challenged by a stressful square from stern Saturn. Stubborn problems related to your career can move toward a favorable resolution when you seek the advice of a more experienced individual who understands your profession.
