Can You Handle Your Promotion?

Can You Handle Your Promotion?
You've earned the promotion you've been working toward for ages, and now it's time to step into your new role of greater responsibility. But, can you rise to the occasion -- and above potentially envious colleagues -- to make the most of your newfound success? Assuming a leadership position comes more naturally to some Sun signs than it does to others.

The two signs who will stride most confidently into a promotion are Leo and Capricorn. Leo adores being looked up to, and they'll relish the chance to be above the common crowd; in fact, they'll truly come into their own with higher professional status. Capricorn will ignore any digs from co-workers and simply get on with the job -- with their mind focused on their next move up the ladder!

Scorpio has always been one of the top signs for military leadership because they're so determined and resourceful. They'll rise to the challenge and do well -- just beware of anyone whose spiteful remarks get under their skin. They certainly won't forget those in a hurry!

Innately competitive, Aries points themselves toward attaining Number One status. They're unconcerned with the reactions of those around them, but they'll argue assertively if anyone threatens to undercut them. And rest assured, their instructions will be followed!

Cancer will be quietly hurt if their former peers aren't supportive of their promotion. But these folks are ambitious, so they'll push ahead and focus on the areas in which they excel. In time, they'll blossom into strong, yet sympathetic managers.

Standing in a lonely leadership role can unnerve Libra. They like to be liked, so they may trip over themselves backwards to make any grumblers feel better. Unfortunately, this could turn out to be their undoing.

Aquarius isn't a hierarchical sign; rather, they think in terms of networking and equals. They'll slide easily into promotion and act exactly as before, so they're unlikely to rub colleagues the wrong way in their new role.

Sagittarius will shoot into hyperactive mode once promoted, issuing lists, setting up work groups and generally keeping everyone so well-informed and engaged that they won't have time to be envious!

Taurus definitely won't take kindly to cutting remarks, but overall, they'll perform fine in their new position of authority. They'll take their time growing into their new role ... but once they're established, they'll be unstoppable.

A promotion -- and the broader professional horizons it offers -- enchants Gemini to no end. They'll let any externally generated negativity slide off their backs, while also gracefully ignoring any barbed arrows aimed at them.

Virgo can be uncomfortable with too much prominence, and they won't appreciate any ungracious remarks. Delegation isn't one of their strong points, so they may be prone to taking on too great a workload. Learning how to give orders will be an important part of their career growth.

Pisces may be initially taken aback by additional responsibilities. They dislike confrontations and would do well with an assistant who's able to better sort out problems. Only then will they be able to display their real talent: strong intuition and vision.
