Aries Career Horoscope for December 2013

Slow your roll

You might feel like the world is starting to spin in the opposite direction this month. Your assertive ruling planet Mars enters diplomatic Libra on December 7 and, due to its retrograde shift there next March will remain in this sign until late July. This extra long transit occurs in your 7th House of Partners, which could reward you with new connections and is also beneficial for going public with projects. 

It's essential, though, that you earn the cooperation of others by demonstrating your ability to listen, to compromise and by being a good team player. It can feel like you're being watched, measured and judged by people, which might not go down easily. You prefer to be more independent and spontaneous, yet putting a brake on your own ambitions to shore up working alliances is a better investment. 

It's true that the fiery Sagittarius New Moon on December 2 ignites your passion for adventure. This lunation occurs in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Mind where it can expand your physical and intellectual horizons. Learning and contacting people in faraway places should prove interesting even if cashing in on these experiences may not occur until next year. 

Taking a more temperate approach to your work also makes sense with appealing Venus in responsible Capricorn. She's in your 10th House of Career, which is good for earning appreciation but playing by the rules is a must with her presence in this orderly Earth sign. Manage your responsibilities carefully and be respectful of those in positions of authority.
