We often find ourselves wondering what the future will hold and always have the dreaded ‘what if?’ question infecting our thoughts. We frequently look for answers in the strangest of places and spend endless amounts of money visiting psychics who claim to predict the future. If you also want to know how your career will pan out for the rest of the year continue reading your career horoscope below.

Aries

March 21 – April 20

The beginning of the year may have been a slow burner for you, but, like celebrity singer Elton John, things have gradually begun to improve in your career post-January. If you keep your patience and your determination you will flourish professionally from August and onwards; you may even see a promotion during this time. Astrology anticipates that after 21 June until 26 October hurdles may arise in your career. Ensure that you are continuing to push through and remain positive as you may not get the outcome that you are expecting. Do not fret, because, by the end of 2017 you will have had many opportunities, recognition, and progress.

Top Tip: Make sure that you ignore any negativity and keep your eye on the prize that you have set yourself.

Taurus

April 21 – May 21

Put your doubt in the bin this year and focus all your energy on achieving your goals in 2017. For Taureans, your main concern is having security and stability; you like going to bed at night knowing that all your eggs are in the correct basket. For the past couple of years, you may have felt a squeeze on your financial assets; you may not have been able to save the pennies that you had hoped to. But, from June and onwards your star sign predicts plenty of opportunities for you to get back on track and score a lucky break.

Top Tip: keep in mind that there are no short cuts to success – you must work hard and aim high.

Gemini

May 22 – June 21

With the likes of the world’s most famous Geminis, such as Marilyn Monroe, Naomi Campbell, and Angelina Jolie, Gemini’s are a force to be reckoned with. This is your year to attain that well-deserved promotion, or, make the career jump that you haven’t been confident enough to do yet. You may find yourself getting agitated with your peers between June to mid-September so try to keep calm, patient and polite as hurdles may ruin your career path.

Top Tip: don’t let overconfidence spoil your chances and be cautious without making any rational decisions.

Cancer

June 22 – July 23

Was the first part of the year a bit down in the dumps for you? Do not panic – it’s not your fault! Stars indicate that you may face some trouble during the months of June to September. You may find yourself feeling like your worth is not apparent and you don’t matter to your company. Thankfully, the other half of the year will pick up, and you will see that with hard work and devotion; these negatives will be turned into positives.

Top Tip: Cancer, this might be the hardest working cycle in your entire life, so grin and bear it, but don’t take on or promise more than is humanly possible.

Leo

July 24 – August 23

Have you been feeling a little lethargic and possess that ‘I can’t be bothered attitude’ lately? If so, you need to find a way to part with the lazy-bug and set yourself some new goals to get motivated. You might want to branch out in your career or move up in the hierarchy of your company. Why not research and do an online course to keep your mind focused and active? You may find yourself feeling slump again in December but do not lose hope. If you remain confident your hard work this year will pay off, and you will begin to see your desired results.

Top Tip: Use your knowledge and awareness to your advantage to further develop your skills needed for the role that you want to achieve.

Virgo

August 24 – September 23

Following in the footsteps of Queen B (also known as Beyoncé Knowles) Virgo’s strive to be perfect in every aspect of their life. This year is a great one for you dear Virgo, you will see yourself turning into a workaholic to snag your dream job. In 2017 focus on having good communication within your work life; when addressing sensitive topics ensure that you select your words carefully.  If you are not mindful, miscommunications may be detrimental to your progression.

Top Tip: Learn to delegate some of your work and not be controlling as you may need a pair of helping hands with some of your smaller tasks.

Libra

September 24 – October 23

Have you been feeling like you’ve been trying to stay afloat for the first half of the year? If so, do not stress as you can only go upwards from here. To prosper in your career make sure you do not involve yourself in any office politics. Keep your head down and stick to your innovative ideas. This will show your boss that you are hard-working and that you think outside of the box.

Top Tip: Try and attend as many networking opportunities as possible; this will allow you to increase your scope and job prospects.

Scorpio

October 24 – November 22 

It is a creative year for you Scorpio, just like actor Leonardo DiCaprio, you can find yourself taking that leap into the role you have always wanted. In August the eclipse in your career skies paves the way for new developments. In mid-September, you may encounter some challenges but persevere through as you will come out stronger on the other side.

Top Tip: Avoid over-exerting yourself this year as you may have a delicate situation with your health which in turn will make you fall behind on your work schedule and deadlines.

Sagittarius

November 23 – December 21

Burning out and focusing solely on your career is what you are used to dear Sagittarius, but this is your year to realign your priorities and take a step back. Your good judgment in 2017 will be beneficial to your profession and will help you prosper. You will expect a lot of assistance from your colleagues, despite this do remember to do as much as you can to show that you are still putting in that effort.

Top Tip: Remain positive and helpful as you always are; your boss will pay respect to your good deeds, this, in turn, can increase your earnings.

Capricorn

December 22 – January 20

Last year you may have found yourself extending your mental horizons by learning and discovering new techniques. Don’t worry, your hard work has not gone to waste as this year you will reap the results of your dedication. Put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard and use your creative powers to achieve the new position you have been dreaming of.

Aquarius

January 21 – February 19

Pisces

February 20 – March 20
