Sagittarius Career Horoscope: August 2013

Expand Your Vision

August opens with the Sun in fiery Leo and your 9th House of Big Ideas. This can certainly inspire you by expanding your vision for your career. It's also a helpful transit for promoting your ideas with confidence, creativity and enthusiasm. However, presenting concepts backed up by facts in a calm and grounded manner is necessary to make a positive impression.

Your expansive ruling planet Jupiter opposes extreme Pluto on August 7, kicking up intense issues for about five days before and after this date. Power struggles and a lack of trust in others could shake your professional life. But the deeper issue is really about you becoming more potent and focused in your work. If you're not motivated in your current situation, this can begin a process of eliminating tasks, attitudes and maybe even people that are holding you back. Looking into your past may reveal old interests that are now ready to be revived and approached with greater focus and intensity.

On August 22, the Sun enters analytical Virgo and your 10th House of Career. The good news is this might gain you more attention and can also put more responsibilities on your plate. If you've demonstrated your competence and mastery of details and systems, greater recognition and, perhaps, a promotion are in order.

Yet you could also feel stifled by a system that bogs you down in routine activities. If that's the case, taking a broader look at your future to consider additional education and relocation should lead you to a more fulfilling job.
