Career Horoscope - Week of April 4

Ever wish you could take a peek into the work week and prepare yourself for what's coming? Problem solved. The CAREEREALISM Horoscopes are here! We looked at some top horoscope providers and interpreted their predictions as they relate to career. And, while we are not professional astrologists and are only offering this as "career entertainment," we still think the advice below is pretty sound. So, take a look and see what this week holds in store for you...
Aries March 21 - April 19 Your confidence and conviction could get mis-interpreted this week as arrogance. Why? Something you were so sure of turns out not to be the case. So, be careful in your interactions to not come off like a know-it-all. The good news is you'll be pleasantly surprised by your new-found insight and the power it holds for you.
Taurus April 20 - May 20 Everyone can tell what you are thinking and feeling this week Taurus. Your facial expressions, body language and voice tone are a dead giveaway that you are stressed and frustrated. Trust us when we tell you that kindness needs to be your number one priority this week. Find your 'happy place' and make sure you do your best to treat everyone as nicely as you can. You'll be glad you didn't let all that negativity ruin a very important opportunity!
Gemini May 21 - June 20 You are going to have a conversation or experience this week that feels like a no-win situation. Why? Because it is! Don't bother standing up for yourself or trying to change opinions - it will only lead you to saying something you'll truly regret. Walk away knowing that this time, saying nothing is going to get you what you want in the long-run.
Cancer June 21 - July 22 You aren't going to like this Cancer, but it must be done. This week, you are being forced to lay your cards on the table. It may feel uncomfortable, but if you do it with tact and careful consideration, things are going to turn out fine. If you don't, expect to watch a less-deserving, sometimes deceptive individual take the prize. Don't let that happen!
Leo July 23 - August 22 Your faith in yourself is being tested this week. You've taken some knocks, some curve-balls, and some surprise set-backs too seriously. Things are going to work out - you are the king of the jungle, remember? Now is not the time to give up. You will most certainly succeed, but what you choose to do this week will decide how and when. So, get up off the floor and get in the game!
Virgo August 23 - September 22 Right now, you are feeling like too many factors are out of your control and that no matter how much you believe, it won't help you succeed. Well, some of that is true. Lots of things are not under your influence. However, there is one factor you are forgetting. Go find it! With a little self-reflection and searching, you will find an element that is under your power of influence - and it just so happens to be the one that counts!
Libra September 23 - October 22 Right now, you deeply wish two things could be true. Unfortunately, they can't. One opposes the other. The idea of this makes you feel insecure. Trust us when we tell you it's going to be okay - just as soon as you let go and let things happen as they are intended. Trust in yourself and that the future will work itself out in your favor. The sooner you 'go with the flow,' the sooner you'll regain that sense of security you crave.
Scorpio October 23 - November 21 This week, imagine you are on stage and everyone is listening to your every word. Why? Because right now, everyone is! Be careful in what you say and how you say it. Innocent comments could be mis-interpreted. You don't have to change your feelings or beliefs, just temper your commentary.
Sagittarius November 22 - December 21 Swallow the urge to party like a rockstar right now. Don't worry, a chance to celebrate is coming your way, but your desire to keep the party rolling isn't a great idea. Pace yourself. Everything in moderation needs to be your mantra this week. Otherwise, you can bet the crash and burn you'll experience from being excessive will cause some serious regret.
Capricorn December 22 - January 19 Your wants are getting in the way of your needs. Listen up, Capricorn! It's time to take a step back and widen your view on life. Something you assume will bring you happiness - won't. Stop trying so hard to get what you want and you just might learn that what you need is far more satisfying.
Aquarius January 20 - February 18 Sugar and lemon juice taste intense. But, add a little water Aquarius and you get thirst-quenching lemonade! This week, you'll encounter a situation that needs your finesse. Use your expertise to bring together unlikely elements for the greater good. Whether it's people or things that don't normally work well together, your talents can make magic happen. It's time to take charge!
Pisces February 19 - March 20 You know your mission and it's greater purpose - it's time to engage! Right now, the stars are on your side. If you take action, you'll find there are plenty of people ready to help you. They see the value in what you are doing, making the job easier for all. Pisces, it's just up to you to get the ball rolling.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully.
