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.
Cooperation is the key element to your best career expression. This means that you cooperate when it suits your position, and you facilitate cooperation among others when you are the leader. You don't have to be the leader, but you do thrive where strong team effort exists.You reserve the possibility of exerting extreme force if it should become necessary. You may even prepare yourself through the study of a martial art or other practice for the unexpected eventuality. What you realize more than most people is that all the training and preparation is designed to prevent the very outcome for which you train. Thus extreme measures are seldom needed. You like to use the latest in technology and methods in your work. For you to have the edge necessary for transmutation of the present into the best possible future, you need adequate tools, it's that simple. You are not afraid to create your own precedent.You can be quite clever in your manipulation of materials or people. Your deep understanding of group dynamics comes from your psychic sensitivity to currents around you. The outcome is best when you do not force your ultimate desire on others, but rather seek to inspire them to move in the desired direction with all possible grace and speed.
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.
Your creativity grows from a place of serenity where you can see the goal and the path as part of a seamless unity. Because you do not approach life piecemeal, career considerations must be part of the seamlessness or you will not be happy.You thrive in situations where you are participating in the larger vision of the future and not isolated to contend with the details. Your intuition is a vital part of the creative process. Your greatest pleasure comes in situations where you can demonstrate the compassionate side of your nature creatively.
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:
Creativity revolves around the moment of inspiration. Like a small child, you thrill to the moment of discovery, the inception of a new plan, the desire to forge ahead, and passion for all that is new. Your creative process may not be evident to others at first, but there is action nonetheless. Like a brooding hen, you warm and protect your initial ideas with the assurance that they will produce a worthwhile product. It is this initial stage of creation that most pleases you, and you like to be the idea person. You need the silent moment for the idea to take root because dissipation of the energy too soon can prevent real progress.
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.
While the approval of others is nice, it is self-approval that you ultimately need. You are able to carry off the dignity required in stressful situations. Your fearlessness can get you into tight situations, but is a valuable career asset most of the time.
It also helps to be aware of how you can use your creativity to the best advantage.
Your creative process can manage the most public demonstrations. This is probably because you do your homework ahead of time, but you are known for the results you achieve, not for behind the scenes activities.
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.
While ritual is often considered a form which contains activity, it is also an avenue for creative expression. You use your emotional resources to add impact to your creative effort; you use conventional forms as starting places for your ideas.Your unusual approach to the creative makes you comfortable with a wide range of professionals. From astrologers to cartoonists, electricians to gun makers, magicians to promoters, you can fit into the career scene easily. You find that change, even dramatic change, is an integral part of your creative process. You are often able to see into the behavior of others and thus may work well with psychologists and psychiatrists, researchers of all kinds, sports figures, and even travel agents.
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.
Your inner sense of beauty can become a source of tension when you find yourself in excessively indulgent situations. When you are attracted to another individual, use your own physical and mental tension to attract them. 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.The typical results of your creative forays have the following characteristics:
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 maximize the benefits of cyclical movement. You may suffer from headaches or facial pain. Psychic awareness can be a positive constructive force, particularly when you adapt your thinking to include its consideration. Practice will overcome a tendency toward one-sided psychic interpretations.
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.
It is easy for you to become confused and lose your way at this time, due to odd ideas that enter your mind unbidden.
Current and Future Trends for the Coming Year
You are getting messages from the subconscious, and they are disturbing and not very helpful.
You are not feeling up to par physically, and this can affect your creativity at work.
You tend to scatter your energy just now, starting but not finishing, or hurrying too much. You want to burst out of any confinement you feel in the work area just now. Your thinking may be a bit one-sided.
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.
You experience the impulse to be, and you require no noticeable substance to enjoy the inspiration. First you identify the descent of spiritual energy into the creative part of your mind. New potentialities emerge. Second, you become involved with the creative force of authority that emerges directly from your thoughts. Later you will have the inner authority to merge thought and action as you move toward creative expression. The creative healing force of heat is the third aspect of the impulse to be. And finally there is the creative ability to look into the future and to pursue your individual purpose. A key word for your experience is TO AROUSE.You may incorporate some of the following personality traits in your career activities: spiritedness, self-confidence, ability to enjoy life, enthusiasm, a tendency to burn yourself out, self-centeredness, restlessness, unrestrained desires, strong intuition, optimism and inspiration. At best, you demonstrate traits of self-motivation, dedication, courage and energy.
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 tend to make quick judgments and may be perceived as an emotional person when you are actually only stating your definite opinions. You are concerned about how situations feel to you, and you are also often concerned about the feelings of others. Decisions are made on the "gut" level. While excessive emotion is not helpful in the work place, you have an advantage in that you can tell how other people are feeling and use that knowledge to massage situations to suit your own desires. For you, the "gut" is as valuable an assessment device as all the logic in the world.
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. You are dependable in your work, capable of persisting through to completion with assigned tasks. You are able to recall details and accumulate the information you need for your work. You can be rather stubborn. You may have trouble adapting to conditions as they arise, learning how to manage and attend to details. You tend to make decisions a bit too quickly, without considering all the angles.
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 Libra, you are primarily 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.
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 Capricorn, your secondary function is 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.
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 joyful eager basis. You have good observation skills and a socially adaptable nature. Always willing to try a new method, you may appear inconsistent or superficial with the old. Associations are important to you.
You support your natural intuitive understanding with a sensitivity to the facts as they present themselves. You are generally firm in your position and consistent in your work. You have a sense of duty which makes you a reliable employee or co-worker.
Your personality naturally tends to exhibit a readiness to make decisions in the clinches and an industrious approach to your work. There is an angry streak that can cause problems from time to time if it gets out of control, but you usually manage it well. This is due to the reserve you demonstrate in the work environment.
The qualities you most easily recognize in yourself are your high goals, coupled with the staying power to achieve them. You have self-confidence that fuels your desire to acquire highly placed friends and even your acquaintances are considered to be friends. You have the capacity for generosity and the organizational skills to make a good leader. You may be hypersensitive to humor when it is aimed in your direction. When pushed, you tend to withdraw from the discussion, to emerge later and claim the winning argument as though it was yours all along. You recognize the value of courage.
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 patient considerations of how factors in the environment are likely to evolve. By considering the practical outcome, you give yourself another way to evaluate problems and deal with them.
For the next few months, you can come to understand your emotional nature as an inherent strength. You may develop a new toughness. The best path is to avoid aimless drifting while also steering clear of ruthless ambitious actions. You learn to use your feelings as a vocational tool.
During the current period you have more feelings of security and practicality. There is a reserve, even caution, in your career decisions. You tend to be thorough in your work. Purposefulness shows in your actions. Egotism and a desire for pleasure can sometimes interfere with otherwise sound work practices.
The quality you stand to gain at this time is the 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.
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 an eager beaver type, a person who is always into the next activity ahead of everyone else. Yet you need someone to precede you, to wave your flag, so to speak. You sometimes feel as though you have arrived at your destination before you sent the telegram saying you were coming. The slower pace of communication helps you to moderate your thinking.
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 melancholy or emotional struggle. You fret over your work, much as you fret over other areas of your life. Your best work is done in a serious environment, and you may not participate in the office pranks or silliness. While you are off in your laboratory working away, you are also working with your emotions in the back of your mind. Avoid job situations where your feelings are put on display. You have the ability to concentrate on your research abilities and emotional endurance to see you through the long haul. Keep this in mind in every area of endeavor, not just vocation. You learn from deep research and metaphysical experiences.
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 assets you need to develop for career success are independence and courage; modesty, self restraint; self confidence. To make the best use of your abilities, begin with a job that demands that you think for yourself, that you stand on your own two feet, that forces you to make your own decisions, that requires the use of supervisory skills. The best long term goal is to control your own business or to be the top executive in someone else's. You may end up in a career that allows you to influence others directly.
Your personal understanding of your spiritual path now supports you in challenging the world to become a better place. You don't need to be especially vocal about this -you present the challenge of a life lived, showing others by example.
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 have the final opportunity to redefine yourself and to make adjustments in your personal path. Seek to identify the methods which will best carry you forward into the world of social interaction, as you will face an extended period of being "on display" in your career. If you feel depressed or weakened, make personally meaningful adjustments.
Focus your impulsive action. This is a time to avoid scattering your energy by pursuing too many possibilities. Use your own will to direct you to the most constructive projects, and then pour yourself into them.
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.
Early on you experience a lack of self-control that can lead to secrecy and even addictive behaviors. You may also be somewhat unreliable in your work. Yet you develop, from these less auspicious beginnings, the ability to hold back and plan skillfully, a capacity to accomplish tasks with little supervision, and a talent for understanding the undercurrents of office politics. You enjoy the social activities at work, as they provide an opportunity to "read" your associates.
Associations with other people are the meat of your career. You would feel terribly isolated without lots of interaction with others. You can be a strong team member and a good leader as well. Diplomacy generally wins out over negative emotions, regardless of how strongly you feel personally. Yet you can be very direct when the chips are down.
The career can flourish through the cooperative efforts of energy and structure, as conditions exists which make this path easy for you to follow. On the one hand, the structure of the best career path is enhanced by the application of energy while on the other hand, your energy is easily directed to fill the requirements of the career's structure. In this way the detrimental and stressful tendencies toward harmful action or weakness are decreased, while your energy is skillfully applied in the most fruitful direction.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.
Leadership is a word designed for your career. From childhood you wanted to be in charge of things. Not a person who enjoys being the target of anyone's humor, you want the spotlight to show off only the best, most socially attractive side of your personality. You need to move up from the bottom rung of the employment ladder at the earliest possible moment in order to find that spotlight.Career fields suited to you include brokers, cartoonists, chairmen, directors, entertainers, film stars, foremen, foresters, gamblers, goldsmiths, government officials, investment bankers, managers, money lenders, motion picture producers, organizers, politicians, prime ministers, royalty, speculators, dealers and manufacturers of sporting goods, theater manager/owner and watch makers.
You may find that at some point you undertake a second, rather different career that has the following characteristics:
You seek a secure livelihood, and therefore make a loyal employee who wants nothing more than a permanent position and the opportunity to advance without flamboyance. An orderly attitude makes you ideal for positions requiring a careful approach to the details of the job. In leadership positions be careful to avoid petty criticism, as there is a tendency toward hypersensitivity.Career fields suited to you include administrators, animal trainer, armed forces, cheese makers, chemists, civil servants, craftsmen, critics, crop growers, dental hygienists and technicians, dietitians, doctors, domestic servants, draftsmen, editors, food purveyors, governesses, healers, illustrators, inspectors, masseurs, mathematicians, merchants, nerve specialists, nursing, office workers, poultry raisers, relief workers, secretaries, statisticians, stenographers, textile workers, teachers, veterinarians and workmen in general.
Additional factors that influence career direction and abilities you can apply in the job world include the following:
It seems like you have to study and think a long time and then awareness is suddenly there. You can also meditate and get the same results. You have to develop a strong sense of reality or you can lose your stability. At the same time you have a strong potential for religious career connections. Your devotion to work is both an asset and a possible liability. Stick to the truth. Abilities that help your career include captivation, clairvoyance, credibility, pliancy, resilience, rhythm, sympathy, osmosis and imagination. Your career may also involve alcohol, angels, drugs, poetry, coffee, wine, witchcraft, trances, smuggling, sailing ships, deep sea, narcotics and missionaries.
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.
In the midst of action you remain calm. Your inner composure is a major asset where career is concerned. Patience gets you what you want in the end.
You are the sympathetic member of your work team, always striving for impartiality. You tend to let others make the decisions, or at least voice them, but you keep score and maintain the balance.
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 have a direct connection between your ego-consciousness and your soul. The emphasis on inner spiritual meaning and values becomes a catalyst for self-understanding. The focus is less on individual expression and more on a flexible life path which asserts the desire to nurture others in terms of what you know about yourself. This flexibility does not encourage a focused approach; rather it allows for diffuse interests based upon deeply rooted spiritual values. Your natural ability is to allow pre-conscious or unconscious motives to emerge into awareness; these motives are part of what you can learn about yourself. The connection between who you are and what you know about yourself is indirect, coming through the influence of others.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.The ability to decide what to do and the action itself are closely connected to the awareness of self. This connection between self and action leads to organizational ability, independence and determination. It also is indicative of prudence because you are bringing self-awareness to your activities. The integration of ego-consciousness with action results, then, in more orderly activities and fewer missteps. That is the constructive side. Less constructive expression can result in careless action, due largely to the lack of cultivation of thinking processes. Self-control gains improved results.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 are susceptible to rigid ideas about the world. There will be far less movement with this combination, as it is less about awareness of change and more about the limitations we find in the physical environment. There is a focus on the structure of your own personality rather than on things outside the self. Because you may not have a strong sense of the structure of social systems, there is a tendency to be self-critical, sometimes leading to an actual loss of ego-consciousness. Ego-consciousness is not placed within the framework of the world, and thus has no solid ground on which to develop. The result is a difficulty in career and relationships which can only be overcome through steadfast adherence to your goals. The need for sufficient practice in thinking is apparent; clear thought processes will negate any tendency toward depression. You have an instinctual understanding of the balance of the people and circumstances around you. You won't have a conscious awareness of this, but it will be there, so trust it. 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.

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?
You can be gullible where money is concerned. When people appeal to your indulgent side, they can take you for a financial ride you will not soon forget. Your material well-being, and your self-esteem too, are best served by a cheerful earning style, coupled with a philosophical view of the value of money. You can earn money through athletics or an adjunct business. Study of the history of economics and money can give you the theoretical base you need to offset any lack of restraint. Be magnanimous, not frivolous, and finances will thrive.
Where does your money actually come from?
You have a sense of larger responsibility that may lead you to great deeds in your life. You are a trustworthy companion and coworker, and think of these people as peers more than anything else. Conscious awareness of the goal that has been set is a key to your strength as a leader. Your ego can get the upper hand from time to time. Still, you are proper and correct in all your dealings.
The breathing process affects your physical and mental well-being directly. To the extent that you can fully engage in an inbreath, you can participate fully in your spiritual life. To the extent that you can fully exhale, you can share your spiritual vision with others. This focus on the throat and lungs involves the thyroid as well.
Your conscious connection to financial concerns is strong. You are interested in money and finances and these areas may directly impact your self-esteem.
Fortunate decisions help you overcome challenges. You have the ability to concentrate on a particular goal and thus will have successful results professionally.Your emotional life leads to personal growth, but only when you balance emotions in social situations. Your inner sense of beauty can become a source of tension when you find yourself in excessively indulgent situations. When you are attracted to another individual, use your own physical and mental tension to attract them. You experience passionate relationships because of your ability to moderate between Self and other. You have a warm heart and creative abilities. There can be fluctuating feelings or a lack of tact. Popularity is yours, but it can have its drawbacks. Too much popularity can bring the disadvantage of over-indulgence or conflict of interests. 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 exertion of power in love relationships requires adjustment on the part of both partners. This is an energy best kept out of the work environment.
You have specific patterns involving money and material things,. You also have a personal moral direction and path toward development of a healthy self-image.
There is another area of life, not necessarily associated with work, that indicates how you actually get your money. It can also reveal who or what has the most direct effect on your self-esteem. Thirdly, it can indicate how you tend to spend your income.
Look to communication to provide a source of income. You tend to stick fairly close to home in your work, yet enjoy the richness of communication that strengthens your self-esteem and increases your bank balance.
Ambition reaches into economic considerations for you. Money may be far more important than fame, although you will take fame too. You trust your own self-discipline and are worthy of trust from others.
Astrology can indicate the importance of income in general, and how material matters affect your self-esteem.
Fortunate decisions help you overcome challenges. You have the ability to concentrate on a particular goal and thus will have successful results professionally.

Your own dissatisfaction can lead to jealousy of others and separations caused by your harshness.
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.
Mediation occurs not only in conflict resolution between or among people; it is an internal psychic function as well. 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. You can be energetic, even aggressive at times. At other times your energy is directed into thoughtful devotional activities, quieter but no less energetic. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 Mercury and Venus 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."
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 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."
The above considerations can be woven together to present an integrated view of your career potential at this time. They indicate the talents and capacities you were born with, and they also suggest directions to go at the present time. As such they provide assistance in making career decisions and can be helpful in considering a wide range of possibilities. Naturally you have the final decision about what changes will be beneficial in this area of your life.
Now that you have read your vocational report, you hopefully have a clearer sense of how circumstances have brought you to your present career position. You may also see ways to apply your natural capabilities, education and training to the goal of a more fulfilling vocation. Finally, you can consider ways to find a job and co-workers that enrich your work and help you come closer to fulfilling your life's mission.
