Every Sun sign handles career challenges in its own unique way. Here's how you can draw upon your natural cosmic talents to overcome pressure at work -- and turbo-charge your route to professional success!

Aries
You're quick on your feet and enjoy a good challenge, so draw on your competitive spirit to meet -- and exceed -- expectations. Curb any reactive tendencies as you instead channel your high energies into action.

Taurus
Slow and steady is your best approach, so always give yourself as much time as possible to complete projects and ensure high standards. Avoid your instinct to resist changes; rather, embrace them as opportunities.

Gemini
Gathering data inspires you, so research and conversations are great ways to get yourself fired up about a project. Since you can lose your focus from time to time, be sure to regularly rotate tasks to avoid boredom.

Cancer
Compassion is crucial for you. You're more likely to rise to the challenge once you recognize how your efforts help others. Curb any over-the-top sensitivity to avoid becoming distracted. Remaining cool is your key to success.

Leo
As the king of the zodiac, leadership is naturally one of your top skills, so make sure you take ownership of all you do. If you're accountable, you'll stay extra-motivated to put in lots of effort. Finally, don't be a diva -- drama only wastes energy.

You're an efficiency expert adept at maximizing your organizational skills, so use established systems to make things happen -- and when no such systems exist, spearhead your own! High standards are great, but perfection is impossible, so do your best to avoid nitpicking.

Libra
You're all about diplomacy, so keep things fair as you focus on how you and your colleagues can best work together; indeed, the saying "many hands make light work" applies. Do all you can to avoid indecision and procrastination.

Scorpio
Your naturally intense focus means you can turn obsessive about deadlines, so guard against unnecessary stress. Try to also avoid being stubborn or inflexible -- learning to adapt is essential for you to get ahead.

Sagittarius
Your optimism enables you to see the potential in everything, but you need to make sure you don't take on more than you can manage. If you hope to share your visions, you'll want to gather extra support to make them happen.

Capricorn
Your ambitious nature means you thrive on challenges. Your Earth-sign nature helps you plan your work -- and work out your plan! You definitely like to get things done, and you recognize the value in working long hours to meet a deadline.

Aquarius
For you, big projects mean brainstorming. Consider how you can use technology or innovations to your advantage. Avoid dismissing others' ideas -- external input can make a huge difference.

Pisces
As the great procrastinating dreamer of the zodiac, you tend to avoid what needs to be done. Guard against this by getting started early, rather than leaving things to the last minute.
