Taurus Career Horoscope for December 2013

Be on your toes

Two key issues this month involve cooperation with colleagues and developing new skills. In fact, these will continue to be major career concerns through the first half of 2014. The source of this pattern is active Mars' entrance into gracious Libra on December 7. This transit occurs in your 6th House of Employment and will stay in this part of your chart until next summer. 

While Mars' nature is to act independently and assertively, its presence in Libra signals the importance of getting along well with others. Balancing your ambitions and ways of working with attending to the needs of others should serve your interests. If colleagues or customers get heated up, it's your job to calm them down. You can earn a great deal of respect by your ability to remain cool and agreeable under pressure. 

Now this doesn't mean that you should say "yes" to something that goes against your principles. Just say "no" privately and politely to maintain harmony on the job. The 6th house is also a house of skills, which is why refining those that you have or, even better, learning something new can be so useful to you now. There's no need to hurry, though, with this long-term transit as you'll have plenty of chances increase your ability to master different kinds of tasks. 

Of course, if you're bored or stuck professionally, additional training (especially as an apprentice) will be beneficial. Still, be especially alert during the last three days of December as tension can lead to conflict that undermines trust.
