Capricorn Career Horoscope: August 2013

Be Bold

Dealing with strong-willed colleagues is likely to be a challenge this month. The Sun is in proud Leo and your 8th House of Deep Sharing until August 22, which can add some drama to professional relationships. You could attract individuals who come across as arrogant and pushy, but you might also find generous and creative allies.

The real issue, though, is for you to be bolder when dealing with others. Showing more confidence and imagination can enliven working partnerships with bright ideas. In fact, if you're looking to start or expand a business, this transit should help you raise the money you need to succeed. You're not the type to ask for favors, so the trick to getting support is to focus on the benefits others will receive by being part of your team. If you believe in what you're doing, you can be very convincing now.

On August 16, sociable Venus enters gracious Libra and your 10th House of Career for a four-week stay. This artistic and gracious planet's presence rewards you for your people skills and capacity to compromise. You can benefit by being a go-between or a peacemaker, even if it requires you to be less aggressive about your own plans.

You should be able to finish the month on a strong note as your reliable ruling planet Saturn forms favorable sextiles with communicative Mercury and the Sun on August 27 and August 29. These are smart aspects that demonstrate your strong sense of logic and practicality. Discussing delicate matters with both reason and restraint is excellent for solving problems.
