Will work be smooth-sailing or will you need to tread carefully to progress in your current job? Here’s what your career forecast looks like for the month of August.
With Venus in Aries’ 4th house of foundations and home, much of Aries’ attention may be focused on ensuring you make progress and be productive in your work life. However, do not let long term goals cause you to make short term mistakes. In short, be aware of the people and resources that are around you now. Keep your head out of the clouds. However, be cautious, as while you may be enthusiastic to jump on new projects or make your voice heard, the fiery energy this month can lead you to be more reckless or unconsciously aggressive in achieving your goals. This can be a highly productive month so do your best to avoid these mistakes.
