October 2011 Virgo Career Horoscope

Make connections and compromises

Making money almost always requires hard work, but the potential to increase your income this month comes more from the quality of the people you're connected with and the social skills that you bring to your job than from pushing yourself. A little style, some grace and good bit of creativity will not only smooth out working relationships, but can make you more valuable at your job. 

Lovely Venus in your 2nd House of Self-Worth until October 8 is a reminder to please yourself. When you're more at ease now, you have a greater chance to get the attention and appreciation you deserve. Mental Mercury is in this house until October 13, as is the Sun until October 23. All these planets start October in Libra, where getting along and making compromises are especially important. 

On October 13 your brainy ruling planet Mercury dives into Scorpio's deep emotional waters and your 3rd House of Communication. This is likely to intensify conversations that provoke strong responses. Choosing your words carefully and doing thorough research is vital for making a good impression in your current position or when seeking a new one.

The Sun's shift into Scorpio and your 3rd House of Communication on October 23 is excellent for gathering information. Your ability to impress others depends upon the mastery of the facts and the depth of your emotional commitment. The Scorpio New Moon on October 26 opposes expansive Jupiter, increasing educational opportunities, chances for travel and making meaningful connections with people in faraway places.
