Libra Career Horoscope for December 2013

Take your time

There is a very important trend starting for you this month. Mars, the planet of action and aggression, enters your sign on December 7. Its presence in your 1st House of Personality should give you more drive and initiative. However, it's wise to pace yourself instead of trying to push too far too fast. That's because the pure passion and power of Mars are diluted in your diplomatic sign. Instead of just blasting forward, it's more about being strategic and basing your approach on the anticipated reactions of others. 

Fortunately, you are an expert in this area. Mars turns retrograde early next March, prolonging its stay in Libra until July 2014. This extra long transit gives you ample time to carefully think about your next big move before making it. In fact, your ruling planet Venus is in ambitious Capricorn all month, but turns retrograde in your 4th House of Roots on December 21. 

There are strong contrasts in this transit because it represents your desire to gain more appreciation and money for your work. This is useful for getting you to think about your long-term goals and what it will take to reach them. The downside is that during Venus' 6-week retrograde period that you may have to spend time shoring up working relationships. 

And, challenges on the home front could become more burdensome. Nevertheless, Libra, time is on your side, so think big but patiently take care of the small stuff that needs to be done before you take a major step forward in your professional life.
