Virgo Career Horoscope for July 2014

Risky business

Your brainy ruling planet Mercury ends its retrograde period on July 1, enabling you to get conversations, connections and training back on track this month. Patience is required at first, because this transition is like a slow-moving train pulling out of the station in your 10th House of Career. However, doing what's needed to resolve minor matters is a way to raise your status without single-handedly taking on an onerous burden.

Everyday happiness comes from doing something you love. Find out what you were meant to do with personalized Numerology!

It's wise not to scatter your attention until Mercury re-enters Cancer and your 11th House of Groups on July 13. You'll find the support of friends and colleagues more easily from that date through the end of the month. Practicality and imagination come together with the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 12. This illuminating event occurs in your 5th House of Self-Expression, where it can inspire you to be more creative. Aggressive Mars' stressful square to this Sun-Moon opposition could trigger some conflict, though. Think long-term instead of acting impulsively, as you could be setting patterns now that will either gain the assistance of others or alienate them.

The heat is also on when Mercury opposes potent Pluto on July 21 and squares volatile Uranus on July 24. Intense discussions can be expected, and it might not take much to set off strong emotions. It's fine to talk about the past if that's what it takes to close the door on an old issue. But it's even better to recognize where your desires and potential are the greatest, encouraging you to take bold (or even risky) action to capitalize on them.
