Introduction

What do I want to be when I grow up? This childhood question is now being considered by people from fifteen to fifty. The number of jobs available is not the main problem. The difficulties come from two areas: first, the vocational possibilities are rapidly changing. Second, many of us are considering our second or even third career because our original choice is becoming obsolete, or makes demands upon us that we could not have anticipated, or is losing prestige, or no longer pays well enough, or has become so mechanized as to bore us to automated tears. In short, we want more.

This report describes your vocational aptitudes from the astrological perspective so that they can be matched in the career marketplace. While the jobs themselves are ever-changing, personality is founded on a solid base upon which to pivot. Self-understanding can supply the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual clues to your best line of work. Then you can determine how to apply your strongest capabilities to the career field you find most attractive.

The best career is one that allows you to use your natural talents and skills. Astrologers use a number of considerations to determine the energies that are strongest and most beneficial in your chart, identifying the type of activities that will be most likely to achieve career success. Sometimes your latent abilities will require training to develop into appropriate occupational skills. Also, you may have talents that serve your avocation - your hobby - better than your career. In this report we will consider a number of possibilities so you can get a sense of which talents are most beneficial in terms of career, and how to develop and use them.

Your Ascendant or Rising Sign

Let's begin with a description of your Ascendant or rising sign. Here you find your natural expression in the world - the way you present yourself to the world and the way others see you.

You can do well in just about any profession you choose. Your naturally expansive personality grows to accommodate career developments and your philosophical attitude allows you to sift out the day-to-day problems from the long term cycles. You can over-extend yourself and dissipate your well-earned position if you lose your ability to survey the larger picture. One of your chief abilities in career is to maintain perspective when other people are losing theirs. Whereas you are not moderate by nature, you are generally honorable. You can avoid excess by maintaining a dignified appearance. You depend on your congenial personality to get you ahead, and you appeal to a higher class of clientele, both financially and socially. You learn the social rules specific to a new situation very quickly. Your popularity comes from the fact that you can fit into just about any crowd. Good careers choices include legal, religious or other professional positions, as well as the banking industry and working with or for wealthy persons. You have a suave demeanor and the mind to match. Your optimism gets you through the necessary training period.

Now take these initial impressions forward with you as you read the rest of this report. You will come to see if and how these general characteristics fit into the overall picture of your vocational possibilities. As you read, you may find apparent contradictions. This happens because we are complex beings with many interests and abilities. This report presents some of your many choices along the path to vocational success and satisfaction.

 

 

Your Creative Touch

Human creativity falls into three principal arenas: creation (the making of things), recreation (the entertaining side of life), and procreation (the creation of the future). Everyone actively engages in all three creative processes, and we often confuse the feelings of one for another. The term "recreational sex" captures the sense of confusion. Some of us work really hard to get "good sex". Some of us feel sex serves only one purpose, that of procreation. Some of us find the deepest spiritual meaning of life in sexual union. To confuse such deeply meaningful matters with mere recreation can be a problem. In terms of career, creativity plays a big role, but typically sexual involvement in the workplace only serves to establish barriers to the free flow of ideas. To gain better understanding of the inner creative urge in its multiplicity of expression is to gain a leg up on the career issues that can lead us to money and fame without also finding inner satisfaction in the work itself.

You invigorate the creative process by sensing the form a project may take and fostering the development of that form. You strengthen the creative ambiance by consolidating the resources needed, providing creative structure to the growth process, and persevering when others may falter. You thrive on the comfortable knowledge that growth continues even when not much can be seen on the surface. You take the greatest pleasure in surpassing the painful moments of doubt and seeing activities through to a more comfortable outcome. "We did it," can become your mantra.

You may find that at some point your creative focus is modified to include a somewhat different mode of expression that has the following characteristics:

Your creativity lies in the ability to diversify an idea. You could have been the original fractal designer, taking one idea and working it into many. You thrive on sharing creative process with others, and brainstorming is your forte. You have the capacity to take a broad view of things, not becoming overly attached to details. When you come back down to earth, you bring with you the sense of space in which to implement your ideas. Your greatest pleasure lies in sharing your experience, and you work well in situations where teamwork is encouraged.

Many people find that the creative urge seeks to apply itself in a particular area of life that may have very little to do with career. By the same token, the creative voice can dictate the path of vocation, if it is either strong enough or consistent with the overall vocational choices. It helps to understand what part of the creative process most pleases you, what feelings and activities you consider to be most creative.

Your creativity is aided by strong powers of observation and the willingness to participate in a group effort. You understand human nature in general, but may not be quite a clear when it comes to individual differences.

It also helps to be aware of how you can use your creativity to the best advantage.

You require a comfortable setting in which to work if your creativity is to be maximized. However, what is comfortable for you may include unusual settings where you must roll up the shirtsleeves and dig into the work.

Who do you most like to play with when you are being creative? You may think this an odd question where career is concerned, but it strikes at the heart of the career game. If you surround yourself with people who share your creative interests, you will fulfill your inner urge more directly and completely. Just as children work hard at their games, you can play hard at work and thus enjoy this part of your life that takes up the bulk of your waking hours.

Generally you find that your creative impulse comes out in connection with other aspects of your life, and you may not think of yourself as being especially creative. Your energies are not focused on the creative act itself, but on people and activities that require creative effort on your part.

You can develop a sense of the importance of creativity to your work, and also what factors affect your creative expression, by considering how you seek creative interplay with others and with the world.

You take a practical, common sense approach to cyclical changes in your life. You can use this approach in business situations by maintaining a sense of your objectives. If you experience a lack of clarity in the midst of changes, you can balance nervousness with physical activity. You seek the ideal in all your relationships and are sometimes surprised to find that great beauty comes with its apparent lack of inner substance. You seem to have limitless amounts of energy; the trick is to learn when to stop for a rest. Blessed with good health and generally destined for success, you experience challenges which focus your attention on the development of healthy attitudes and good nutritional habits. Your life is filled with changes but you have a progressive mind which can manage them. You have the ego skills to work with your intuitive ability. You generally have plenty of nervous energy. You are far more sensitive to your environment than most people. Without careful attention to your choices, you make emphasize weaknesses in your physical body. Increased psychic awareness helps you make the most of your possibilities. You find it easy to wield your tremendous personal power. Conditions arise in which you have volcanic outbursts of feeling, usually connected to a specific cause related to childhood experiences. You can be sentimental as well.The typical results of your creative forays have the following characteristics:

You have an intensity in your emotional life as well as innate artistic talent. You find yourself at ease with women in nearly all situations. You have a natural beauty and a talent for bringing beauty out in your surroundings. Your love life will go through inhibited periods. Your sober, sensible side will emerge at such times. Even temporary separations can cause you pain. Jealousy can be a problem. The world of illusion provides career and personal challenges. You idealize love relationships and can be devastated when they end. You are able to communicate your ideals in some concrete form.

Current shifts in your creative pattern may be indications of a refinement of your activities to suit the daemon or inner voice. Your awareness of that voice is subject to changes that can have sweeping effects on your career path.

Recent Influences

Your own dissatisfaction can lead to jealousy of others and separations caused by your harshness.

Current and Future Trends for the Coming Year

You find that balance is just out of your reach at work and in your personal sphere.

Creativity and Career

You may be wondering how creativity affects your career. Perhaps you don't feel that the work you do is very creative, or perhaps you have creative pursuits that are not part of how you earn money. Creativity is the expression of an ideal that we each find within ourselves. We each have a unique inner essence that deserves to be polished and re-fined in our individual ways. This essence can be expressed through vocation, and indeed it is a force that pushes us toward the most fulfilling career fields. Many factors combine to produce the best vocational choice. Multiple abilities may combine in a profession not usually associated with the individual qualities you possess.

Where You Have the Best Advantage

In the world of vocation certain energies work to your best advantage.

The power of intellect expresses creatively through the positive, unloosened mind. First, you find the creative ability to be aware of what is hidden. Your mind allows you to experience the revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures. Creative objectivity permits you to balance your perceptions with thought. The creative force of social action will continue beyond individual lifetimes. Finally, you are able to creatively project an ideal into form through intellectual processes. A key word for your creative process is TO MAKE KNOWN. You may tend toward the following capacities where vocation is concerned: intense perceptual abilities, ability to concentrate and meditate, ability to think clearly, ability to put things in the proper perspective and ability to reason, ability to adjust. At best you are able to think without living entirely in your head and to test the water by dabbling before focusing too narrowly on one activity.

These may not be your greatest strengths, yet they work better for you in the work environment, they help you to achieve greater career success and fame, and they may even be essential for financial remuneration. For some people, the things that work where vocation is concerned are very different from what work in relationships or other areas of life.

Your Most Likely Mode of Expression

You are able to figure out the nuts and bolts of situations, and then turn them to your advantage through practical effort. Not afraid of physical challenges, you also appreciate the creature comforts that success brings. You are well-prepared to handle the day to day operations of a business. You are the type who may have built sand castles as a child, and ends up designing homes, bridges, high rises and other structures as an adult. You are able to visualize the results of your concrete labors.

You generally prefer to take the initiative in any situation, choosing action over other considerations. Your initial enthusiasm is often what gets the ball rolling, and you can be counted on to move forward with projects. You can be impatient.

How You Work Best

Each of us has to work within the framework of our personal traits and habits. Life is not so much about changing those habits as it is about choosing to emphasize one set of behaviors over another. Through this process character is revealed. If we changed our behaviors all the time, we would never settle into the strength of character that we need. Generally, when we desire to change ourselves, we aim to change how we understand and work with our inner being, how we can come to accept that being. This section of the report considers how you operate in the world, and thus how you tend to function in the work environment.

Your Strongest Psychological Tendency

The Sun is indicative of your primary psychological type. Psychology and astrology both suggest that each individual has a basic style in interacting with the world. The Sun sign indicates the more conscious portion of your style. Individuals do not necessarily conform to this in their outer expression, but it nevertheless is consistent with the underlying approach to life. With the Sun in Capricorn, you are primarily the Sensation type.

Sensation types are primarily interested in practical considerations of the world. They will look at the actualities - facts first. They depend on their five normal senses for perception. They wish to have the experience, not hear about it from others. Sensation types learn by doing, so the learning process may be slower. To be satisfied, they need to go over things carefully. They are not less intelligent because they go slower - they are more careful. When given the time to assimilate information, the sensation type may remember it longer and understand the practical uses in more detail. Studying the theory of engineering may be difficult for the sensation type, but the application is their forte. You demand satisfaction all along the way, and will not select occupations that are without positive feedback. You are a healthy consumer, loving life and what it has to offer on the material level and you are best in careers involving real "stuff". You would be a good real estate person, interior decorator, or chef. You enjoy working with your hands and can make this part of the vocation or at least an avocation. You would be a good doctor or health care professional. Any career that requires attention to and intimate understanding of the details is suited to the sensation type.

Your Unconscious Interactive Style

The Moon indicates the less conscious component of your interactive style. It shows what skills and talents can be brought to bear when your usual approach is not effective, and as such it indicates your own internal support system. With the Moon in Libra, your secondary function is the Thinking type.

Thinking types tend to be less personal in their approach to the world. They are focusing on an objective truth that they hope to find, and not on the people in their path. They choose to be logical. They choose to be truthful. They choose to be argumentative - after all, they have argued with themselves enough times! They are usually able to go through a thought process once and stop, without needing to re-evaluate. Air types benefit from an education that includes logical training, but they remain one-sided if they skip over the opportunities to appreciate the people and things around them. They judge the world through a logical process that seldom admits consideration of feelings.You can do well in careers where it is important to organize and assess quantities of information. You tend to be somewhat more businesslike, able to "cut to the chase" in planning as well as performance. You contribute to society through intellectual criticism, through the exposure of wrong-doing, and through scientific research. You perform well in executive positions partly because such positions are somewhat impersonal. You are willing to tell the truth, even when it is not convenient.

What You Show the World and What You Know About Yourself

If you are aware of how other people see you, you have a distinct career advantage. Such awareness provides a tremendous opportunity to present yourself in the best light possible. You may have a rather different persona in the work place than you have anywhere else because different traits are expected by your co-workers. You therefore can choose to display those personality characteristics that suit your work situation the best.

Your natural direction where individuality is concerned is to proceed on a practical basis, working within a tested, stable framework of order and method. Your focus is on reality.

You have vivid communicative abilities and remarkable mental flexibility. You enjoy being around others and are sympathetic and willing to be helpful. You may lean on your co-workers for support occasionally, yet you thrive independently as a general rule. You spend time wishing for things and planning for the future.

Your personality naturally tends to exhibit restless energy, together with self-confidence and enthusiasm. You expect to find a place in your career and to hold it. You desire recognition and may sometimes seem self-absorbed. Your sociability is a career strength.

The quality you most easily recognize in yourself is your capacity for harmonious interaction with others. You desire cooperative spirit in others, and you expect support from them just as you offer it. You inspire team spirit rather than employer/employee relationships. You may become impatient with lapses on the part of co-workers, as you expect consistency. You are aware of your social position, yet establish friendships with all kinds of people. You can be pleasant only for effect, and may be viewed as insincere. You may resist going into a battle, but have the skills to emerge a winner. You respond to crises by seeking the path toward renewed balance while synthesizing a solution quickly.

Sometimes it seems that other people understand you better than you do. As you become more self-aware through experience and self-investigation, you see the connections between feelings, situations and events more clearly. You thus are better able to make creative choices in response to life's slings and arrows, instead of reacting from a less conscious drive.

Individual Strengths Being Developed at This Time

As you travel life's path, the balance of your attention changes. These shifts allow you to experience the world in different ways for a period of time, and thereby to develop new skills. The periodic shifts provide what you need to gain perspective if you are to take advantage of learning opportunities as they are presented. These shifts may call for career changes as well.

At this time you have the potential to grow through developing a greater versatility. This is a good time to study, either to upgrade your skills or to develop new ones. You will also find yourself in more social situations and can refine your interpersonal skills during this period.

For the next few months, you may experience an eagerness to get on with new career plans. As you learn to control rash impulses, you gain a sense of self-confidence during this period. ou may see your ideals moving into reality.

During the current period you have more adaptability and mobility, along with good understanding of events around you. At the same time you like to see change and can implement it yourself. Your good manners come across well in the work environment. Others respond well to you because you show a wider range of interests and knowledge of human nature.

The qualities you stand to gain at this time are ambition and ruthlessness. The better you know these, the better you can manage them. You persevere to the edge of doom if necessary and beyond. You know that you need time and space in which to revive from such ventures. You understand the basics of life and therefore can be quite sympathetic toward the problems of others. You know that you will survive just about anything that is thrown your way. You know your own desires and how to fulfill them. You may occasionally overestimate your energy and need to know your limits. You meet resistance in almost everything you do - be sure not to project this onto others, it is your own consciousness that resists loss and change. You can be inspired in emergencies and you have the courage to do what is necessary, even though it may seem cruel at the time.

How You Relate to the World in General

Many factors add up to the sum total of your presence in the world. Some character traits are quite stable, changing very little throughout your life. They are the "mind set" with which you approach all your activities and as such have a strong impact on your career. This section of your report considers how these persistent qualities affect you in your career endeavors.

Psychologists use the terms introversion and extraversion to describe two general ways of approaching the world. These tendencies are rather obvious to others, yet you may not recognize them in yourself.

In psychological terms, as an introvert you judge the world in terms of what events mean for you and you are not as responsive to others as the extravert. Life's activities tend to be measured on an internal, personally unique basis. In introversion one's thoughts refer more to the self, to what is within the individual. You seek to understand what life offers before you jump into it. If there is a real world for you, it is the inner world of ideas and subjective understanding. You tend to insulate yourself against the outer world in favor of the inner life.

Another pair of differences fall on a continuum between very self-directed and self-motivated to more responsive or reactive to other people and outside forces.

You have the potential to develop, to increase your skills and awareness. There is movement in the direction of greater personal control in your life than others experience. You like to be in command of situations and create your own circumstances. Even if you work for other people, you like to be responsible for your own work. You are able to exercise initiative and find ways to apply your will to projects. You like to see your projects grow and you put in the necessary energy for this to happen. You tend to measure success in terms of personal results.

These two tendencies combine to produce a personal approach to the world.

You tend to focus your attention on the self and persona (what you show to the world), your possessions (financial worth) and feelings (self-worth), and how you express yourself to others and learn about your immediate environment. This is the area of life over which you have the greatest potential control, as you are the only one who even knows the true content of yourself. You are also the one who decides how to act toward others, and you are the source of your own personal motivation to learn and to communicate.

A third consideration is how your mind functions. How you assimilate information and then put that information to use in the outer world can have a huge impact on your career success. It influences not only the career choice itself, but also the area you choose within the career.

You are a person who tends to consider things carefully and rarely jumps into any situation too quickly. You usually find that the ground has been laid and the path prepared for you. Thus, even though you have taken a considered approach, you are not too late to reap the benefits.

Summary

Thus far this report has revealed traits of your personality which you may be more or less familiar with. Most people identify with one or more parts of their personality. You may not see yourself exactly as described here, and you certainly will want to consider the qualities that are entering your awareness now, as they are the fuel for future personality developments, and possibly for career advancement as well.

 

 

Your Vocational Indicators

Each of us has a natural inclination to function a particular way, and these tendencies become pronounced in vocational activities. We carry our personal desires across a personal boundary into the social milieu and find greater or lesser resistance to our desires there. Yet we may stubbornly press on, attempting to bend the world to our personal desires. We tend to hold on to the old form, even if it no longer serves us. "Better the devil you know" is itself a timeworn maxim.

If, instead of insisting, we learn from social feedback and adapt our approach to the world, we find that life is gentler and career more satisfying. Your personal emotional bias, how you concentrate your talents, and how you best learn from experience all impact vocation in spite of any desires to the contrary. There are several fundamental qualities that bear on vocation, and the following paragraphs consider these factors.

The focus is on your eccentric ideas and expectations. You thrive on the unusual, even the bizarre. You belong in a career that focuses on the unusual while emphasizing your ability to plan and to follow through to completion. You have the ability to concentrate on your capacity to plan and your desire to be a reliable partner to see you through the long haul. Keep this in mind in every area of endeavor, not just vocation. You learn through creative application of ideas and information.

There is one area of life where your hard work will achieve the best results. Because of this, you may be steered in a direction that you cannot easily perceive from within the confines of past experience. You need to look beyond past experience and desires into the larger context of your life to find the best place for your efforts. Most people expect a career to provide status, money, and other satisfactions. The type of work indicated here may seem odd, but deserves consideration nonetheless, as it may deliver long term rewards that you cannot perceive at the outset.

The personal asset you need to develop for career success is the understanding of both the value of money and your own value as a resource. To make the best use of your abilities, begin with a job with a salary or contract that demands accountability on both sides, in a career that does not involve speculation. The focus should be on making and handling money and material assets. There should be meticulous adherence to honest practice and you should avoid speculation of any kind.

Current Direction

You take the awareness you have of your productive capacities, and you apply it in the world. You are able to accept challenges and work with them, based on an awareness of your impact on the world around you. Instead of the world challenging you, you are able to carry your challenge into the world.

You may also consider the area of your life in which these impulses can best be applied, and the focus that will gain the most positive results.

At this time you address your relationships with significant others. You become more aware of your career associates and their impact on you, and this may cause frustration if you see them as formerly convenient partners or co-workers. Look at others and assess their position in your life; the emphasis is on defining the situation, not provoking change until you are certain.

Your instinctive responses are fully available at this time. You establish your security by focusing your emotions so they do not carry you away. You may be emotionally sensitive during this time, but learning to control your responses is the key to establishing personal boundaries and choosing the focus of your mission.

All of these considerations come together into a package of skills, decisions, and goals combined with your current potential. The sum total is a description of your ability to learn from experience. If you are well placed in a career field, emotionally suited to the demands of the actual job, and oriented clearly to your goals, you will be successful.

How to Apply Your Energy to the Career

Having looked at how a solid foundation may be established, we now turn to the application of your personal energy to the goal of fulfilling your dreams. The previous paragraphs suggest the most natural form or structure of your career, while the following shows how you pursue it. How do you apply yourself? What drives you? How far can you go? These questions are all answered by your personal energy and how it can work with your natural abilities.

You tend to be reckless in the beginning, and prone to injury. There is an independent spirit that can work alone easily. Such a person can be in charge of others, but only after independence becomes a skill rather than a goal. Early impatience can develop into ambition suited to the career chosen. Early argumentative tendencies can become skilled negotiation. While energy may be wasted in the beginning, a more directed strategy may develop later.

Your drive to succeed cannot help but result in significant accomplishments of some kind. You can over-estimate what you can do on your own, and may need to develop a team to work with closely. You are very logical and methodical in your work and demand that of coworkers. Independence is part and parcel of success for you. You can be very focused, and rarely leave a project uncompleted.Early in life energy almost seems to use you, as you have little control over desires. Throughout your life you learn to moderate desires of the moment with longer term plans, and you adapt to the environment of parental control, school requirements, peer pressure, marriage or relationship responsibilities, etc. Energy becomes, instead of its own director, an agent for your use, being guided by your will. You may find your will power and determination change in their expression earlier or later in your career, depending on your personal developmental path and how you respond to life. Some uses may seem out of reach in youth and commonplace in middle age, or vice versa.

 

 

Your Career Success

It is helpful to think of career success separate from the money earned, as success is not limited to material gain. A person could be held in very high esteem in his career field and not be the biggest success in the money department. Also, the slice of the career pie will often determine the earning potential. Of the three factors involved in vocation (career, money and work environment), the career itself has the most public impact. Here is where reputation is built, here is where one gains authority in one's field, and here is where ambition can be fulfilled.

You advance through the cooperation of others and through the use of social contacts. There is some tendency to exploit others, and this could be a problem if carried to extremes. Since no one is always nice, after a while you can appear insincere. Career fields suited to you include actors, arbitrators, beauticians, confectioners, decorators, dressmakers, florists, intermediaries, jewelers, jugglers, lawyers, milliners, negotiators, business partners, salesmen in general, tailors, woodsmen and wig makers.

You may find that at some point you undertake a second, rather different career that has the following characteristics:

You are not afraid of the hard work - you can get in the trenches with coworkers when necessary. Ambition leads to striving to come out on top of every situation. This attitude can make for over-extension of your energy as well as the appearance of ruthlessness. Actually there is usually an accurate grasp of the situation in nearly every case, accompanied by surprising sympathy toward others. Career fields suited to you include bail bondsmen, brewers, butchers, bill and tax collectors, dentists, detectives, druggists, doctors, embalmers, executioners, funeral directors, insurance salesmen, junk dealers, laboratory technicians, lumberjacks, magicians, pharmacists, paleontologists, psychiatrists, psychics, radiobiologists, radiotherapists, researchers, nuclear scientists, sorcerers, surgeons and tyrants.

Additional factors that influence career direction and abilities you can apply in the job world include the following:

Change in your career is a fact with the Moon in the tenth house. Your imagination can grasp the requirements of your public position, allowing you to have a creative impact in whatever career you pursue. You may have two careers going at one time. You have a psychic sense of what effort to exert to become successful. You can learn "on the job", integrating information quickly and fluently. Abilities that help your career include adaptable, change, curiosity, illumination, receptivity and osmosis.Your career may also involve babies, boats, candles, fresh water, common people, baking, crops, diet, domestic life, dry goods, real estate, fertility, furniture, fermentation, glass, health, kitchen, lodging, nursing, optical things, plumbing and allergies.

For most people there is one area of the life, not necessarily associated with work, that influences the career strongly. There may be skills developed there that can be directly applied to the career. Also, it may influence the choices you make in where and how to pursue your career.

Your career is the source of most of your income, yet you may not be doing the actual work. For example, you may be an architect. Yes you draw the plans, but you do not construct the building. Yet a certain part of your income only arrives when the building is completed. Clearly, your career efforts are responsible for the flow of money to you, but you are not the only person working toward that end.

You are unconventional in your pursuit of even the most ordinary career. Intuition provides ideas and mental training can provide the proof that your intuition is accurate. Cooperation does not mean a loss of freedom.

You can develop a sense of how significant career is to your life in general, and also what factors affect the progress of your career, by considering how you become more aware in general, how you interact with the people and events around you, and how these responses affect your work.

You become aware of spiritual motives rather separate from your self-awareness. These motives are no less potent, only less integrated with your knowledge of yourself.You may be more in touch with your own consciousness than most people because what you are and what you know about yourself are directly related. If there were no aspect between Sun and Midheaven, the connection would be less direct. You constructively express your energy by focusing on advancement toward success. You know yourself well enough to recognize your direction or mission early in the game.You use your thought processes to develop self-awareness. To the extent that thinking has been cultivated, you are well-equipped to plan and pursue objectives on the mental level. It is essential for you to train the mind. Sloppy thinking will only lead to sloppy pursuit of objectives. One quality of mind is its changeability; you can lose focus if your mind is not well-trained and practiced. Another quality is the capacity to resolve conflict; you come to resolutions directly through self-awareness, or ego-consciousness, whereas other people may use different means.You are capable of a profound awareness that all concrete knowledge is rooted in the love principle. The close connection between beauty and ego-consciousness allows expression to embody harmony and balance in concrete form. This can include plastic arts, writing, and any activity whose aim is to achieve a higher level of harmony in the physical world as well as in interpersonal and social relations. You find yourself acting without self-examination, and this is not always the best plan. You work best in situations where considerable training is involved, so that your actions become second nature.You are interested in expansion, optimism and religious or spiritual interests. Your thinking emphasizes the nobler facets of human expression as a result of consciousness. The urge to expand is joined with self-awareness to produce direction and optimism. This combination often signals success throughout life because the higher, more comprehensive awareness of cosmic law is so closely linked to ego-consciousness. It is as though the two are one expression for you. The desire to accomplish something important can be a powerful motivation, and leads to self-awareness. You cannot understand the structure of your career path directly, as most people do. You have greater success when you allow the career to develop without pushing. Apply yourself to the task at hand and let the chips fall as they will.You feel an emphasis on the suddenness and change in your life as well as rhythm, independence and even rebellion. You are usually in a state of being ready to take action, coupled with a strong intuitive sense of what direction to take with your life. Controlled by a well-trained mind, intuition can indeed provide equilibrium in your life, as you can foresee conditions and events clearly. When you are out of control, emotional imbalances result and change runs your life, instead of the other way around. The more out of balance you seem, the more your ego-consciousness is ignoring some significant portion of the psyche and its messages. Whatever psychic awareness you bring to your career is a felt thing, not the result of thought. You may find that your thought processes are sometimes inconsistent and self-awareness depends on listening to your "gut".Through sheer force of will you seek a mission in life and to fulfill it. No longer simply thoughts, the mission becomes a guiding force for transformation. As ego-consciousness is focused on life's mission, personal power is mobilized to attain success, to organize your life, and to express personal authority. Any misuse or misdirection of personal power can lead to disaster. Power out of control is like a race car without a conscious driver, dangerous in the extreme. Stories about the Sorcerer's apprentice address the fact that power without the knowledge of how to control it can lead to ruin. You must train your mind and open your consciousness to broader vistas. Then power of will comes to be based on informed ego-consciousness.Impulsive actions mark your physical body. Rashness can cause problems which can be overcome if you exercise and use control. It is easy for you to become depressed or sad, or at least very thoughtful. You can use this tendency to focus your mental energies on practical matters. Sometimes you feel very isolated from others. Emotional tensions can create strain on your physical body. To avoid this, work with your metaphysical interest and develop an awareness of tension as a signal to re-focus subconsciously as well as consciously. You have a heightened emotional life which can be directed into specific areas of your life. You pursue your goals with almost fanatical zest and must be careful to consider other people in your excitement.

Where the work environment and the securing of employment are concerned, astrology offers many useful insights. It also deals with the actual work that is undertaken. It can reveal how you react to work, to your work associates and to the work environment itself. Regardless of the actual title you hold, the place where you do the work and the people around you make a tremendous difference in the attitudes you develop in the work place. You can learn effective tools for obtaining the job as well.

Virginia, or Wisconsin.

The types of people you work with most successfully may not be the sort of people you would choose for friends or romantic partners. Understanding how to identify compatible co-workers can have a direct effect on career success or failure.

It shows where your actual work energy will be concentrated, as well as what outside factors can affect your work performance. Your work depends to a certain extent on these factors that would otherwise be outside the work environment.

When measurable output is required, you shine. You love to combine the practical demands of the material world with the intellectual challenges of business and personal life. You have the potential to be successful in business, in a scientific occupation, or in careers that involve speaking. Your active mind gives you a significant advantage in "on the spot" situations. Clear communication is needed to overcome obstacles in business and family situations. The challenge is to develop a stable base of operation and then stick close to it in spite of pressure. Your heightened powers of intuition give you greater flexibility in all kinds of situations. Because you know or feel how conditions will change, you are able to work with the challenges you meet. You can be abrasive and coercive, pressing your own values on others to your own detriment. You are persuasive and usually win arguments. Your own eagerness can be a detriment to your health unless you support your nervous system with proper nutrition and rest.

At certain times in your life changes in the work environment affect your career. You may change how you feel about your work and your coworkers. During some periods it is more difficult to be hired, or even to find a suitable place to work, while at other times changes within the work environment are easy to achieve.

 

 

Your Financial Considerations

Of the three vocational considerations, money is usually the most personal and private. Yet at the end of your life, all you have to take with you is your self worth. All the money, all the material possessions, all the opinions of other people will make no difference at all. What you think of yourself is all you will have. Thus other considerations such as moral growth, personal debts other than those involving money, and self-esteem are tremendously important human issues. The question this chapter revolves around is this: How do you maximize your potential, fulfill your higher mission, satisfy your daemon, obtain the money you need to live, enjoy your life, enhance your moral growth, all within the confines of the natural talents you possess, in such a way that at the end of your life, you are satisfied - personally satisfied - that you did well?

Generally cautious where money is concerned, you can become pessimistic and even secretive in your dealings. However, your systematic approach to financial management will prove successful over time, and your industrious work habits pay off in the end. Money and material things will mkae you happier if you place your faith in yourself and not in them.

Your understanding of how things work is often the key to increased financial security as well as higher self-esteem.

Material matters will be more successful when you exercise patience with your work, with other people, and most of all with yourself.

Your conscious connection to financial concerns is strong. You are interested in money and finances and these areas may directly impact your self-esteem.

The world of illusion provides career and personal challenges. You idealize love relationships and can be devastated when they end. You are able to communicate your ideals in some concrete form. It is easy for you to become depressed or sad, or at least very thoughtful. You can use this tendency to focus your mental energies on practical matters. Sometimes you feel very isolated from others.

Career or Mission?

Now that we have examined the vocational possibilities from the geocentric perspective, it is time to consider your higher spiritual mission. Mission is driven by the spirit or inner psychic voice of the individual. Let's take a look at the spiritual potential that reflects the urgings of that voice. Seeing the universe from this perspective gives you a sense of your larger purpose. Then you can look back at the above information to discover the practical means to fulfill your higher purpose.

This section of the report considers several factors that make up your spiritual perspective. Some may be more familiar to you than others, and certainly some will have more impact on your vocation.

Concrete knowledge does not stop at the scientific definitions of things, nor is it limited to the scientific approach to understanding the relationships between people and things. It also includes a felt sense, an inner awareness of the right relationships between things. You can employ concrete knowledge in the mediation between personality and soul, between physical life and higher consciousness. Only through fusion of these apparently separate facets of your being can you approach true knowledge. The path toward fusion of heart and mind, the subjective purpose for manifestation, is perhaps the most central experience of wisdom that you will ever have. Both Venus and Jupiter tend to express through two profoundly significant realities of being. First, you appreciate movement into incarnation. This movement includes the desire to manifest in the material world, and requires an effort of Will. Second, you experience a desire to cooperate with a larger plan. Thus you can combine both the will to manifest individually and the desire to return to the ultimate source. This is "the secret of beginnings."Mediation occurs not only in conflict resolution between or among people; it is an internal psychic function as well. Your principal path of approach to paradoxical problems of all kinds is through the unfolding of spiritual consciousness. Mature self-consciousness includes awareness of these two appearances and how they interweave to produce what we call life. In your daily activities you may seldom think of this profound reality of existence; as you grow in conscience you develop an affinity for sensitizing yourself to your higher mission.The search for equilibrium in your life reaches beyond the limits of this plane of manifestation, seeking to integrate the experiences of body, mind and spirit into one profound experience of unfolded consciousness. This level of integration occurs when the soul and the personality are brought into alignment through accident or through ritual experience. Thus ritual is a valuable path for you as you develop a sense of equilibrium. Your path to transformation of difficulty into harmony - the most direct way to actively engage will to guide your personal power - is to integrate power and will to act as a human being. You have the choice of how you implement your will. Both Uranus and Pluto tend to express through the nurturing capability of the material world which creates a physical form in which our personality and soul can develop on the path to higher spiritual realization. You have deep experiences which reveal the light to you. You have the capability of unified understanding of the feminine principle in all its expressions, embodying it in the mental, emotional and physical manifestations. Outer attention to detail reveals your inner understanding of unity.Psychic awareness can be focused to identify the source of conflict and the ground upon which conflict may be resolved. Your higher vision is based on your examination of the essential duality of physical manifestation. One side of duality is the desire or passionate nature; the other side is the innate quality of compassion which comes from another level of experience. The awareness of essential duality is joined with the activity of the mediator to resolve into Unity. You develop your capacity for compassion through fierce testing. The planetary energies are subjected to physical, mental and spiritual demands which leave you changed forever. While duality is part of all experience, there is a struggle that tests even the nature of opposites. This spiritual battle challenges you to rise above merely material considerations.You can be energetic, even aggressive at times. At other times your energy is directed into thoughtful devotional activities, quieter but no less energetic. We all accumulate debts and responsibilities on the path toward resolution of difficulties. It is through the exercise of intelligent activity - that is, the use of what we know and how we employ that knowledge - that we even begin to approach the freedom we seek from such indebtedness. Both Mars and Saturn tend to express through melding love and wisdom into a working unity. Your sight is always set on the masses and not the individual, your goals and work tend to be global, in thought and in action. Ritual provides an avenue for working with others. By honoring the human connection to form, you are able to help people move forward. It is through the use of ritual that you are able to resolve difficulties between people, as ritual affords the possibility of acknowledging conflict while encouraging movement toward solution.

There is a particular direction in which your intelligent activity will most likely move. It is obviously where you position yourself and represents your strongest capacities as a human being. You will display intelligent activity in and your lifes' mission through an instinctual relationship to life. Physical human instinct includes a desire and need to nurture the body/mind. At the same time there is a profound instinctual drive to discover meaning, so much so that at some point life without meaning becomes intolerable. Just as physical life is breathed into us, so is the life of the spirit instilled within us. "The light of substance ... is ... awaiting the stimulation coming from the soul light."
