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 are especially well-suited to work that requires partnership, or at least a strong level of cooperation. Your natural impartiality makes you a social asset and your affability will earn you second and third invitations. You could be comfortable in the field of diplomacy because you have the knack of fitting in while at the same time accomplishing your desired goals.You will be involved with refined products and services. You design unique collections, not off-the-rack copies. This is true across the board, not just in the clothing industry. Your creations, whatever they are, bring the required balance to the work situation. You may find a niche in the arts. You know what is inspirational and can either produce it, sell it, or create a mood with it.Somewhat romantic yourself, you can speak to that quality in your clients and work associates. You appreciate the love you find in your private life. You also have a concrete sense of how to inspire this quality in others. You are able to identify and enhance the sympathetic attraction of others, and therefore would be a good costume designer, hair stylist, or cosmetics dealer.Music may become part of your career as well. The harmony of sound is as vital to you as are the visuals. You may create, or certainly enjoy, original musical works.

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 are a master planner, able to wait for just the right moment to take action. Your creative talent lies in acting decisively when that moment arrives. You are a good observer of human nature, yet you can maintain a suitable distance when that is required. You thrive in situations where you can remain detached enough to see the overall picture, and you desire a certain freedom. If you are able to analyze your inner feelings and thoughts, your creativity is unlimited. You find pleasure in your ability to convince others of your viewpoint.

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 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.

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.

You like to focus on the practical considerations and leave the daydreams to others where work is concerned. You measure success in terms of results. Results for you include completion, harmony and dependability, all managed in a timely manner.

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

Your creativity works best in partnership with others. You may feel stifled by overly assertive supervisors and even resent any appearance of control by others. Yet you may also feel isolated if no one is around to share in the creative process.

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.

Common sense sometimes seems to short circuit good ideas. Upon reflection, however, you often find that you have experienced a minor setback and avoided a major disaster. 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.The typical results of your creative forays have the following characteristics:

You fall in and out of love easily. In fact you enjoy the beginning and ending of relationships because of the excitement. Tension can have a big impact on your sex life. You will make remarkable achievements during your life, but there is a price. You need to take care to avoid accident or injury because of carelessness. You are brutally truthful and sometimes intolerant of others. Inhibited rhythms affect your physical body and your social existence. you are able to overcome difficulties. You are self-willed and gain or suffer because of this. You have natural psychic gifts which emerge during sleep or hypnotic states at first. You can achieve spiritual enlightenment through development of this inner vision.

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

It can seem like a disaster today, but you will find that changes at this time work out in the future pretty well.

You may miss the best opportunities just now because you are not focused or because you choose to argue about a philosophical point.

Current and Future Trends for the Coming Year

This is an upsetting period for you, setting the stage for accidents or other unpleasant situations.

It is easy for you to become confused and lose your way at this time, due to odd ideas that enter your mind unbidden.

Sudden changes are likely, and you cannot predict exactly which way things will turn out. Be aware of any subversive activities around you and avoid becoming involved.

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 creative process of nourishment is yours.  You tend to sustain and integrate your resources; this gives you the power to respond and to feel.  You can creatively reorient yourself, changing shape to fill whatever career container you have at the moment.  You can broaden your experience by flowing and spreading yourself as far as you desire.  This expansion of consciousness allows for commingling and interchange and is indicative of interpersonal commerce. You have the creative energy found in controlled passion.  A key word for your process is TO NOURISH.You may manifest some of these traits in your career: emotional balance (or lack), empathic ability, a sense of your own feelings, psychic or intuitive ability, ability to face pain, and ability to express the highest spiritual values of love, compassion, devotion.  At best you master emotions instead of letting them have free rein.

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. You are able to adapt to conditions as they arise, learning how to manage and attend to details. You can take on the role of mediator, as you can entertain more than one viewpoint. You can be indecisive. You may have difficulty in persisting through to completion with assigned tasks. You may lose track of details and have trouble gathering the information you need for your work. You may also be easily distracted.

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 Virgo, 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 Capricorn, your secondary function is the Sensation type.

The Sun and Moon work together in your chart in a functioning partnership. The more aware you become of the styles you have, the more you can use them effectively. Your conscious individuality and less conscious interactive style work very well together, and this can be an advantage or disadvantage in the work place. As a child you may have been stubborn in your determination to do and to be whatever you wanted, but that trait develops into a solid reasonable nature with great power. Able to accept responsibility, your inner personal beliefs are readily made available to your peers. Your insight into people comes from this capacity to not merely talk the talk, but to also walk the walk. If you expect it from associates, then you demonstrate it yourself. You seldom expect subordinates to do any work that you would not willingly do yourself. You impress others with your insights into the realities of work situations. You respect authority and expect others to accept your use of it. Loyalty is important to you - you are, however, loyal to your own principles first. You can be somewhat sentimental. You seek powerful intellect in others, just as you seek to develop your own. Any perceived handicap from childhood pushes you even harder to achieve success as an adult. To a certain extent, the exercise of your power is more important than the accumulation of material wealth. Self-control is a must for you. You can be cold, resisting close ties that could limit your ambitions.

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 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 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 naturally good manners come across well in the work environment. Others respond well to you because you draw on your wide range of interests and knowledge of human nature.

The qualities you most easily recognize in yourself are the awareness of your own individuality and the independence that you need. You know that you are impressionable, and you know how to verify your impressions before taking action. You are generally considerate of the needs of others and can nurture when necessary. You know that you must occasional fight hard for what you want and are fearless when the fight is important to you. You can respond decisively to any situation that arises, and when you do not, the inner turmoil will be intense.

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 greater awareness of your feelings. During this period you can improve your ability to judge situations while avoiding the unnecessary negativity of arguing. You may also find you have a new level of reserve, even secretiveness.

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. You may see your ideals moving into reality.

During the current period you have more 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 qualities you stand to gain at this time include a more critical attitude which can be either petty or supportive. You know the importance of neatness and you always know where your "stuff" is. You may desire the security of a permanent position. You take a simple approach to personal advancement and cut to the heart of any problem. You resist letting go of details that have served their purpose and you need to clear out old material from time to time. You can bring your self-awareness to the bargaining table and make a good mediator because you are honest.

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.

The extravert evaluates events external to the self. For such an individual other people are the basis for personal decisions. In extraversion the flow of energy is outward; your thoughts mainly concern external objects. You tend to live life and then figure it out afterward. You are usually relaxed and confident, plunging into the water before you know how deep it is. Conduct is essentially governed by external conditions. You tend to unload your emotions as you go along and take an expansive attitude to everything.

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.

Your role in the world focuses on how you exercise authority and earn respect. As a general rule you are comfortable in non-intimate situations with friends and groups and you are able to set objectives for yourself and others. There may be profound interest in your inner, private life as well. You are interested in the working of your sub-conscious mind, and value time spent alone. You are able to work in seclusion.

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.

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 timidity and depression. Saturn is not strong in Pisces when it comes to emotion. You will work best in an environment that is respectful of your reserved attitude and that removes you from unnecessary personality struggles with others. You like challenging problems, but need a quiet space in which to solve them.You have the ability to concentrate on your ability to work alone and spiritual stamina to see you through the long haul. Keep this in mind in every area of endeavor, not just vocation. You learn through mystical means and empathic channels.

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 perseverance and a cheerful attitude toward the humdrum details of life. Your first job may require very hard work, but you build character for later, more prestigious positions. After a hard working beginning, you can go in just about any direction, as you have the ability to work and study hard in a profession or business.

Current Direction

Whatever you have learned about your spiritual mission, now is the time to rethink it, discarding any leftover ideas that do not fit into your plan. You personally have expressed your creativity and now have the task of engendering the creative impulse in others.

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.

This is a time to focus on your education. We can always learn new things, but now you have the possibility to slug through a difficult learning period to gain a deeper understanding of your work and how it fits into your larger mission in life. As you focus on your connections to the world around you, you will also define the part of yourself that you wish to present to that world.

At this time you need to control the restlessness that may arise. Steady, thorough communication and study of problems in your career will contribute to deepening your ability to place yourself in the most promising position.  What you learn at this time will be available to you always, so pay attention.

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.

In the beginning you tend to over-estimate your talents and skills.  You can be single-minded in pursuit of your objectives, even though they are not well conceived. Egotism can be a problem. However, you turn these seeming limitations into strengths as you pursue the development of your career. Ambition is a trait that carries you to career heights. You have the will to achieve success, and the self-confidence to keep you going. Throughout you have a sense of reality that serves you in the work environment.

Your dramatic style is a career asset for sure, putting you into the forefront with self-confidence and allowing your zeal to infect your coworkers. Your successes may lead you to believe you are perfect, and this is not the case.  It is better to have self-assurance that does not require pushing other people around. Generally honest and above board, you can become a fine leader and responsible member of the community.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.

The desire for independence comes out strongly in your career. You also are considerate of the other people in the work environment. Others should not try to push you too far. You can work well alone, establishing an independent business, or can work with others if your sensibilities are kept in mind.Career fields suited to you include agricultural work, baker, boat builder, catering, cook, farming, fishing, gardening, grocers, hotel management, house keepers, laundry worker, merchants, milk man, mining, mushroom grower, nursing, plumbing, real estate sales, restaurant management, sailing, shepherd, silversmith, social worker, tavern keeper and water management.

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

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.

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

You take pride in your energetic approach to work and you anticipate certain rewards. You have a sense of reality, however, that can surprise others. Your energy is directed toward success, always considering reputation, independence and achievement. Your career and public life rarely reflect any laziness, but you can over-estimate your capabilities.Abilities that help your career include one's working ability, assertiveness, bravery, mechanical ability, participation, stamina, ferocity and haste.Your career may also involve adrenaline, defense, gymnastics, kilns, metallurgy, rock music, performance and the steel industry.Your personal charisma can land you in positions of power.

Control tendencies to recklessness and you will thrive in the public arena.Abilities that help your career include cooperation, collaboration, passion, forcefulness and subconscious connections.Your career may also involve reptiles, autopsies, chain stores, death, demolition, atomic energy, insurance, pirates, space physics, stagnant water, archeology, alchemy, violence, surgery, magic, espionage, psychoanalysis and plastics.

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.

You experience close ties between your career and your family. Your deepest held beliefs must be supported by the work you do, or you will not be satisfied.

You are ambitious. That said, your usually cautious nature can keep you from becoming overly materialistic in your career. Self-control may be the key to maximum success.

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. The easiest path to self-awareness for you is not through thinking, so you tend toward a career that focuses on other strengths. You may find that you experience social interactions as though through a veil or fog. Yet you feel a powerful drive to be understood and accepted. 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 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.Uncertainty is the keyword for this combination. Ego-consciousness is frequently not available, or only after great effort. You must work hard to manifest the higher qualities of psychic awareness. The strength gained from contemplative practice of meditation can provide more consistent mental focus which compensates for dreaminess and aimlessness. As you move into the 21st Century, you will find better ways to work with uncertainty, thereby relieving any depression and mental disturbance which this planet can bring. Then psychic awareness will become a source of depth and strength. The prerequisites are the trained capacity for mental focus and a grounded connection to the material world. Definition in the physical realm balances the lack of definition coming from Neptune combinations. Power is often outside your conscious control. You find it is governed by unconscious drives for the most part. You develop a disciplined will through other channels.You have a heightened emotional life which is 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.You use your powerful mind to help you through difficult transitions in your life. A tendency toward rash action can create unnecessary tensions. You can use inner tension to guide the direction of persuasive arguments. You experience passionate relationships and you can use the physical tension to moderate between Self and Other. Irritability is reflected in tactless communication. Your sensuality gets you into relationships; other qualities will sustain them. Fortunate decisions place you in beneficial circumstances. You find yourself in the position to resolve disagreements. It is easy to expand into new relationships. You relish opportunities to influence others and are a strong speaker and leader. For you the pen truly is mightier than the sword. You have a pervasive desire for power; this desire can help you to attain leadership positions. It is possible for you to lose everything and then to regenerate your life. You experience cruelty in your life which must be offset by other factors. You have the potential to grow in spiritual awareness if you can avoid purely egoistic aims. You are a highly sensitive person and can develop your psychic gifts steadily throughout your life. You are aware of events before they occur. Focused attention can steer you away from obsession and confusion. Avoid the misuse of drugs.

They are the ones who systems were invented for, as they thrive in situations where dutiful attention to detail will win out over exuberance. Saturn's seriousness can turn to pessimism if they forget that results can be measured and success can be manifested materially. They are usually the patient ones.

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?

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.

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. You can develop a fuller sense of the value of ritual throughthe desire to express through personality. This expression can become stubbornness, or it can exemplify purposeful progress. The co-existence of physical form and spiritual will illuminate our individual desires as well as the powerful idealism of the larger sphere of life. "The secret ... is revealed in the blinding energy of light (through) the sudden removal ... of world glamour."You can be energetic, even aggressive at times. At other times your energy is directed into thoughtful devotional activities, quieter but no less energetic.  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 Mars and Pluto tend to express 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."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 throughthe 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.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 tend to seek concrete knowledge throughthe testing of opposites. Energies are weighed and balanced here, and understanding begins to form about the profitable uses of polarity. Harmony is not only expressed through balance and symmetry, but through intentional asymmetry as well. Knowing how to work with this concept allows you to achieve new levels of energy.Mediation occurs not only in conflict resolution between or among people; it is an internal psychic function as well.  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 Mercury and Jupiter tend to express through the process of linking form and soul. Without this step the soul would not attach to the body and life independent from the mother would not be possible. This deep mystery occurs metaphorically while the Sun is sinking to its lowest point of the year, suggesting that the mysteries of life dwell in the dark recesses of consciousness.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. You seek intelligent activity in all areas of your life throughthe same sign as the sign of the Earth, which is the direction intelligent activity is most likely to move and will be described in a later paragraph.

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 sensitivity on both the material and soul planes. At times you feel limited or even imprisoned in your body, yet you are able to use your physical manifestation to communicate about subjects of the Soul. You continually face the possibility of raising your human desires to a higher level of spiritual expression; through such activity you sympathetically raise your fellow beings as well. You grasp the meaning of polarity in human experience, opening the door to future progress.
