Aquarius - 20 Jan to 18 Feb
Aquarians starts to focus this month. While some small conflicts or problems may arise in the early start of February, they will not pose any sort of problem long term. It is important to watch your image in the workplace, as your most important asset this month is the relations you form with your colleagues and working buddies. It is important not to be too carefree, but to allow your unique ideas to convince others to support you. Furthermore, competition is rife, so you do not want to allow anyone to find a way to twist your words away from your true intentions. All the same, new acquaintances will be significant this month.
Pisces - 19 Feb to 20 Mar
Privacy and a close circle of companions are two important things to Pisceans this month. As other signs start becoming more energetic and competitive, the gentle-natured Piscean may want to keep out of that competition. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to be involved in workplace drama, likely it has nothing to do with you either. However, do not take yourself completely out of the running. You have a chance to strengthen your current standing through social networking. Having support from other people is especially important, so make sure to rally all those around you in the workplace. You are a formidable force in your own right so don’t forget that.
Aries - 21 Mar to 20 Apr
While many Aries started off the year as if they never left work, they may feel that the delayed post-holiday blues are finally taking hold in the second half of this month. This will only be temporary, but it can also be a good thing. You’ve been giving it your all since the start of the year, it’s not a bad idea to slow down a little to catch your breath. Don’t resist the body’s urge to relax. Your efforts will be noticed by those around you. You have a chance to make friends in high places. Keep an eye out for potential benefactors, especially in overseas markets or environments. People will be an important asset to you this month.
Taurus - 20 Apr to 21 May
Taurus continues to march on steadily and slowly into work this month. This is the month of mental self-diagnosing and inner reflection. You will start to ask the difficult questions, such as whether your current career path is fulfilling to you or if there are better opportunities elsewhere. Learn to trust your better judgement, rationality and objective nature. Everyone will learn to answer these questions at their own pace, so don’t try to rush yourself. The answer will eventually come to you. In other news, be careful about taking on projects or tasks that seem too good to be true. Always get everything down in a contract and do not rely on only verbal promises.
Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun
February is a positive month of work improvement and self-development. However, it also is a time of uncertainty and mystery in the workplace. While your career is flourishing and your networks with potential benefactors are strengthened, you may find that you have to make choices that have no clear outcome. This is not a time to make any long-term decisions when it comes to your career. You should avoid taking risks and try to delay decisions for as long as it doesn’t negatively affect the project. Otherwise, enjoy this time and learn to take advantage of this growth to alleviate your position in your workplace. You have a chance to form good relationships with superiors but remember your own ranking.
Cancer - 21 Jun to 20 Jul
While you started off the year a bit slower compared to others, now is the time where you are finally getting ready for great things. While this period of reorganisation and reprogramming is mostly peaceful, you may find yourself more irritable when it comes to distractions or interruptions. You must learn to block out these external delays and focus on crafting a proper plan for your career path. Things promise to be hectic this month, so it is good to formulate this plan early on and avoid going off it. Once you have everything written down, you will feel must better and readier for what is to come. This month, lists and timetables will be your best friends.
Leo - 21 Jul to 21 Aug
With Uranus moving into Taurus from the 6th onwards, this fuels Leos with a new sense of fire and energy. This month calls for your energy to be focused on laying out the groundwork for future plans. This may be done by, ironically, looking back at the past. Past ventures, projects or work partners may crop up. They may provide a great help to you in the current or even future time. So it is a good idea for you to go back and review your previous business partners, friends or even acquaintances in the workplace and start contacting them again to rekindle the working relationship.
Virgo - 22 Aug to 22 Sept
Virgo continues to go on strongly this month, however, the competition around you is also increasing. While you have a chance to make a lot of headway when it comes to your career, you must be careful about the people around you. That being said, you cannot completely shut out others or attempt to ignore them, as people will also be your strongest asset this month. It is a good time to form relationships with potential business partners. It is important that you work hard to weed out your allies through all the competition. While competitive tension runs high, potential friendships and kindred work relationships are also just as likely.
Libra - 23 Sept to 22 Oct
While Libras started off the year a bit reluctant to get back into the work force, this month you finally start to find your stride. You are slowly getting back in touch with your wit, charisma and social skills. These are all characteristics that help you to not only survive but thrive in the workplace. Your strength comes from standing in the spotlight and showing others your own unique and optimistic working attitude. People will want to stand by you and support you. However, you must be careful not to trust everyone so readily. This year is competitively charged, so it is important to pick and choose your allies carefully. They will be the ones to make or break you.
Scorpio - 23 Oct to 22 Nov
Scorpios have their own secret schedule or timetable by which they operate by this month. They know about their goals and they have a clear mind on how exactly to achieve them. You are able to settle into a good routine of doing things in the workplace. This is good because you’ll need to have extra focus and concentration when it comes to achieving your goals this month. Obstacles and small delays may try to upset you, but if you keep your sights ahead, you will be able to easily overcome them. However, remember to take these mishaps as opportunities to learn as well. They may be trying to teach you important lessons.
Sagittarius - 23 Nov to 20 Dec
The planets align this month, signalling a prosperous and wonderful time ahead in work for the month of February. While your current role starts to settle down into a comfortable pace, you may find that you have a whole new set of exciting possibilities and responsibilities opening up to you. You may find yourself becoming busier, but in a good way. Travelling, meeting new people and taking on whole new projects are all possibly on the cards this month. The Sagittarian’s mind is also enhanced, making this an excellent time for students or for picking up new and worthwhile skills. Follow your heart and go where adventure takes you this month.
Capricorn - 21 Dec to 19 Jan
Capricorns, like many other signs, finally get back into the right mindset for work again this month. In fact, you do it best out of most of the signs. The level-headed Capricorn loves organisation, management and structure—all skills that will serve you well this month. You need to put yourself in a position where these skills can truly shine and you can dictate how things should be organised. Pay extra attention to your surroundings and the people around you. Shifts in relationships or changes in environment can have a big impact on your work. Approach everything with a more hands-on approach and avoid passing off important tasks to other people.
