Sagittarius Career Horoscope: October 2013

Think before you speak and look before you leap

Teamwork could be your key to professional success this month. The source of this idea is the presence of the Sun in cooperative Libra and your 11th House of Groups until October 22. This may involve more conversations and compromises than you'd like, but it could be essential to your productivity.

There may be plenty being said behind the scenes with verbal Mercury spending the month in your secretive 12th House of Spirituality. Be discreet in what you say, because even a playful comment can be taken as a serious remark.

The messenger planet will turn retrograde on October 21, before spending three weeks in reverse in your 12th House of Spirituality. Words from the past could return to haunt you, yet memories and people might come out of the woodwork to provide you with critical information.

On October 12, the Sun forms a stressful square with your expansive ruling planet, Jupiter, which can broaden your perspective, but it also can provoke you to expect more or promise more than can be delivered. Stretching yourself is fine as long as you have a plan to back up your words.

The incendiary Aries Full Moon in your 5th House of Expression on October 18 kicks up creativity. This can be a powerful source of fresh ideas and inspire you to take bold action. Yet there's also an impulsive and explosive side to the lunation that can spark actions that aren't quite ready for prime time. Go into your mental workshop when the Sun enters your 12th House on October 22 to review and study any bright ideas before putting them into motion.
