While stark reality holds sway in your personal life, there's an opening to a more imaginative and inspired view of your career this year. Idealistic and compassionate Neptune enters your professional 10th House of Career on April 4, sprinkling fairy dust there until August 4 before returning for a much longer stay starting in February 2012. The downsides of this transit can be chasing illusions and sacrificing your time and energy without getting recognition or material rewards equal to your efforts. However, Neptune's gift is to dissolve the boundaries that hold you back from bigger professional dreams. You can find inspiration and get more joy in your current position or become motivated to seek a new job, even a new line of work. What you do for a living should be more than a boring routine; it can become a source of purpose when your idealism or creativity is fully engaged.
