Scorpio Career Horoscope for February 2014
Work behind the scenes
An ongoing theme for the first half of this year is the position of your traditional ruling planet, Mars. It's in likable Libra, which is good for smoothing out rough spots in professional relationships, but it's also in the somewhat obscure 12th House of Privacy of your chart. This sector is not ideal for making a big splash. Although success can happen with this transit, it will require lots of diplomacy and some behind-the-scenes work to build the support that you need.

The Sun is in quirky Aquarius and your 4th House of Roots until February 18, which is better for inner reflection than launching a major project. Finding time to think outside the box and explore unconventional ideas is a practical way to use this period of time. Then the Sun moves into sensitive and imaginative Pisces and your 5th House of Self-Expression. In principle, this frees up energy to be more creative. This can impress others with your charm and originality.
However, brainy Mercury is retrograde from February 6-28, a reversal period that often leads to misunderstandings. While you can make an impressive presentation in the latter two weeks of the month, people may turn your words in a direction that doesn't follow your plan. Think of meetings then as something like a first date when you don't have to deal with deeper, underlying issues. Be patient, because this means that selling yourself or an idea might seem relatively easy until you have to work out the details and get a solid commitment from others.
