Capricorn Career Horoscope: November 2013

Leading the pack

You're a very self-motivated person most of the time and are comfortable acting as a responsible and well-organized leader. However, learning to be a part of the team is likely to be a key issue for most of November. The Sun is in Scorpio and your 11th House of Competition until then, making cooperation an essential element of your professional success. Playing the role of a motivator works well as long as you're subtle about it and don't embarrass colleagues who aren't doing what you think they should.

A private conversation will be more effective than a public critique, especially with verbal Mercury running in reverse until November 10. Discussions will be more delicate then as you and others can infer aggressiveness even when it's not intended. A benefit of Mercury Retrograde in your 11th house, though, is to make adjustments with co-workers that will put your relationships on a more solid foundation.

The Scorpio New Moon on November 3 is joined with your responsible ruling planet Saturn, which the Sun conjuncts exactly on November 6. This period can be one of added pressure as deadlines loom and obligations weigh heavily. Dealing with immediate challenges is unavoidable, but think about the long-term consequences of your actions since Saturn rewards patience and planning, making a slow, more thorough approach to problem solving more effective.

The Taurus Full Moon on November 17 lands in your 5th House of Creativity and Play. It reminds you that pleasure and productivity can work together, especially when you allow your imagination to run freely.
