Aquarius Career Horoscope: October 2013

Expect the unexpected

Travel, education and publishing can play positive roles in your professional life this month. The lovely Libra Sun is in your 9th House of Faraway Places and Higher Learning until October 22, which should broaden perspective on your life purpose. Foreign cultures might play a role in your career, whether by taking a trip or doing business with people in distant lands.

The possibility of going back to school is worthy of consideration, especially with the super-dynamic Libra New Moon on October 4. This Sun-Moon conjunction is super-charged with tense connections to four planets that can push you to extremes. Your usually cool response to challenges can heat up and even reach a breaking point.

If you're ready for a significant shift in your work life, then reacting strongly will get that going. But if you're only mildly dissatisfied and want to maintain positive relationships in your current situation, tempering your feelings is a good idea. Still, with your electrifying ruling planet Uranus opposing the New Moon, surprises can rock your world.

On the positive side, however, if you're itching to do something totally different, there's plenty of juice to fuel your journey. A brilliantly creative trine between socially skillful and artistic Venus with innovative Uranus on October 16 is excellent for making new connections, turning a problematic relationship in a new direction and coming up with unconventional ways to entertain and appeal to others.

Additional responsibilities may come with the Sun's shift into Scorpio and your 10th House of Career on October 22. Think carefully before adding more obligations to your professional plate.
