Introduction

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

This report describes your vocationalaptitudes from the astrological perspective so that they can be matched in thecareer marketplace. While the jobs themselves are ever-changing, personality isfounded on a solid base upon which to pivot. Self-understanding can supply thephysical, emotional, mental and spiritual clues to your best line of work. Thenyou can determine how to apply your strongest capabilities to the career fieldyou find most attractive.

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

YourAscendant or Rising Sign

Let's begin with a description of yourAscendant 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 workthat requires partnership, or at least a strong level of cooperation. Yournatural impartiality makes you a social asset and your affability will earn yousecond and third invitations. You could be comfortable in the field ofdiplomacy because you have the knack of fitting in while at the same timeaccomplishing your desired goals.You will be involved with refined products andservices. You design unique collections, not off-the-rack copies. This is trueacross the board, not just in the clothing industry. Your creations, whateverthey are, bring the required balance to the work situation. You may find aniche 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 tothat quality in your clients and work associates. You appreciate the love youfind in your private life. You also have a concrete sense of how to inspirethis quality in others. You are able to identify and enhance the sympatheticattraction of others, and therefore would be a good costume designer, hairstylist, or cosmetics dealer.Music may become part of your career as well. Theharmony of sound is as vital to you as are the visuals. You may create, orcertainly enjoy, original musical works.

Now take these initial impressionsforward with you as you read the rest of this report. You will come to see ifand how these general characteristics fit into the overall picture of yourvocational 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 manychoices along the path to vocational success and satisfaction.

 

 

YourCreative Touch

Human creativity falls into threeprincipal arenas: creation (the making of things), recreation (the entertainingside of life), and procreation (the creation of the future). Everyone activelyengages in all three creative processes, and we often confuse the feelings ofone for another. The term "recreational sex" captures the sense ofconfusion. Some of us work really hard to get "good sex". Some of usfeel sex serves only one purpose, that of procreation. Some of us find thedeepest spiritual meaning of life in sexual union. To confuse such deeplymeaningful matters with mere recreation can be a problem. In terms of career,creativity plays a big role, but typically sexual involvement in the workplaceonly serves to establish barriers to the free flow of ideas. To gain betterunderstanding of the inner creative urge in its multiplicity of expression isto gain a leg up on the career issues that can lead us to money and famewithout also finding inner satisfaction in the work itself.

You are a master planner, able to waitfor just the right moment to take action. Your creative talent lies in actingdecisively 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 insituations where you can remain detached enough to see the overall picture, andyou desire a certain freedom. If you are able to analyze your inner feelingsand thoughts, your creativity is unlimited. You find pleasure in your abilityto convince others of your viewpoint.

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

Your creativity grows from a place ofserenity 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 partof the seamlessness or you will not be happy.You thrive in situations where youare participating in the larger vision of the future and not isolated to contendwith the details. Your intuition is a vital part of the creative process. Yourgreatest pleasure comes in situations where you can demonstrate thecompassionate side of your nature creatively.

Many people find that the creative urgeseeks to apply itself in a particular area of life that may have very little todo with career. By the same token, the creative voice can dictate the path ofvocation, if it is either strong enough or consistent with the overallvocational choices. It helps to understand what part of the creative processmost pleases you, what feelings and activities you consider to be mostcreative.

You like to focus on the practicalconsiderations and leave the daydreams to others where work is concerned. Youmeasure 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 canuse your creativity to the best advantage.

Your creativity works best in partnershipwith others. You may feel stifled by overly assertive supervisors and evenresent any appearance of control by others. Yet you may also feel isolated ifno one is around to share in the creative process.

Who do you most like to play with whenyou are being creative? You may think this an odd question where career isconcerned, but it strikes at the heart of the career game. If you surroundyourself with people who share your creative interests, you will fulfill yourinner urge more directly and completely. Just as children work hard at theirgames, you can play hard at work and thus enjoy this part of your life thattakes up the bulk of your waking hours.

Generally you find that your creativeimpulse comes out in connection with other aspects of your life, and you maynot think of yourself as being especially creative. Your energies are notfocused on the creative act itself, but on people and activities that requirecreative effort on your part.

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

Common sense sometimes seems to shortcircuit good ideas. Upon reflection, however, you often find that you haveexperienced a minor setback and avoided a major disaster. Blessed with goodhealth and generally destined for success, you experience challenges whichfocus your attention on the development of healthy attitudes and goodnutritional habits. Your life is filled with changes but you have a progressivemind which can manage them. You have the ego skills to work with your intuitiveability. You generally have plenty of nervous energy.The typical results ofyour creative forays have the following characteristics:

You fall in and out of love easily. Infact you enjoy the beginning and ending of relationships because of theexcitement. Tension can have a big impact on your sex life. You will makeremarkable achievements during your life, but there is a price. You need totake care to avoid accident or injury because of carelessness. You are brutallytruthful and sometimes intolerant of others. Inhibited rhythms affect yourphysical body and your social existence. you are able to overcome difficulties.You are self-willed and gain or suffer because of this. You have naturalpsychic gifts which emerge during sleep or hypnotic states at first. You canachieve spiritual enlightenment through development of this inner vision.

Current shifts in your creative patternmay be indications of a refinement of your activities to suit the daemon orinner voice. Your awareness of that voice is subject to changes that can havesweeping effects on your career path.

RecentInfluences

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

You may miss the best opportunities justnow because you are not focused or because you choose to argue about aphilosophical point.

Currentand 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 andlose your way at this time, due to odd ideas that enter your mind unbidden.

Sudden changes are likely, and you cannotpredict exactly which way things will turn out. Be aware of any subversiveactivities around you and avoid becoming involved.

Creativityand Career

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

WhereYou Have the Best Advantage

In the world of vocation certain energieswork to your best advantage.

The creative process of nourishment isyours.  You tend to sustain andintegrate 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 byflowing and spreading yourself as far as you desire.  This expansion of consciousness allows for commingling andinterchange and is indicative of interpersonal commerce. You have the creativeenergy found in controlled passion. A key word for your process is TO NOURISH.You may manifest some of thesetraits in your career: emotional balance (or lack), empathic ability, a senseof your own feelings, psychic or intuitive ability, ability to face pain, andability to express the highest spiritual values of love, compassion,devotion.  At best you master emotionsinstead 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 achievegreater career success and fame, and they may even be essential for financialremuneration. For some people, the things that work where vocation is concernedare very different from what work in relationships or other areas of life.

YourMost Likely Mode of Expression

You are able to figure out the nuts andbolts of situations, and then turn them to your advantage through practical effort.Not afraid of physical challenges, you also appreciate the creature comfortsthat success brings. You are well-prepared to handle the day to day operationsof a business. You are the type who may have built sand castles as a child, andends 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 theinitiative in any situation, choosing action over other considerations. Yourinitial enthusiasm is often what gets the ball rolling, and you can be countedon to move forward with projects. You can be impatient. You are able to adaptto conditions as they arise, learning how to manage and attend to details. Youcan 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 tocompletion with assigned tasks. You may lose track of details and have troublegathering the information you need for your work. You may also be easilydistracted.

HowYou Work Best

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

YourStrongest Psychological Tendency

The Sun is indicative of your primarypsychological type. Psychology and astrology both suggest that each individualhas a basic style in interacting with the world. The Sun sign indicates themore conscious portion of your style. Individuals do not necessarily conform tothis in their outer expression, but it nevertheless is consistent with theunderlying approach to life. With the Sun in Virgo, you are primarily theSensation type.

Sensation types are primarily interestedin practical considerations of the world. They will look at the actualities - facts first. They depend on theirfive normal senses for perception. They wish to have the experience, not hearabout it from others. Sensation types learn by doing, so the learning processmay be slower. To be satisfied, they need to go over things carefully. They arenot less intelligent because they go slower - they are more careful. When giventhe time to assimilate information, the sensation type may remember it longerand understand the practical uses in more detail. Studying the theory ofengineering may be difficult for the sensation type, but the application istheir forte. You demand satisfaction all along the way, and will not selectoccupations 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 incareers involving real "stuff". You would be a good real estate person, interior decorator, or chef. Youenjoy working with your hands and can make this part of the vocation or atleast an avocation. You would be a good doctor or health care professional. Anycareer that requires attention to and intimate understanding of the details issuited to the sensation type.

YourUnconscious Interactive Style

The Moon indicates the less consciouscomponent of your interactive style. It shows what skills and talents can bebrought to bear when your usual approach is not effective, and as such itindicates your own internal support system. With the Moon in Capricorn, yoursecondary function is the Sensation type.

The Sun and Moon work together in yourchart in a functioning partnership. The more aware you become of the styles youhave, the more you can use them effectively. Your conscious individuality andless conscious interactive style work very well together, and this can be anadvantage or disadvantage in the work place. As a child you may have beenstubborn in your determination to do and to be whatever you wanted, but thattrait develops into a solid reasonable nature with great power. Able to acceptresponsibility, your inner personal beliefs are readily made available to yourpeers. Your insight into people comes from this capacity to not merely talk thetalk, but to also walk the walk. If you expect it from associates, then youdemonstrate it yourself. You seldom expect subordinates to do any work that youwould not willingly do yourself. You impress others with your insights into therealities of work situations. You respect authority and expect others to acceptyour use of it. Loyalty is important to you - you are, however, loyal to yourown principles first. You can be somewhat sentimental. You seek powerfulintellect in others, just as you seek to develop your own. Any perceivedhandicap 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 theaccumulation of material wealth. Self-control is a must for you. You can becold, resisting close ties that could limit your ambitions.

WhatYou Show the World and What You Know About Yourself

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

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

You support your natural intuitiveunderstanding with a sensitivity to the facts as they present themselves. Youare generally firm in your position and consistent in your work. You have asense of duty which makes you a reliable employee or co-worker.

Your personality naturally tends toexhibit adaptability and mobility, along with good understanding of eventsaround you. At the same time you like to see change and can implement ityourself. 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 andknowledge of human nature.

The qualities you most easily recognizein yourself are the awareness of your own individuality and the independencethat you need. You know that you are impressionable, and you know how to verifyyour impressions before taking action. You are generally considerate of theneeds of others and can nurture when necessary. You know that you mustoccasional fight hard for what you want and are fearless when the fight isimportant to you. You can respond decisively to any situation that arises, andwhen you do not, the inner turmoil will be intense.

Sometimes it seems that other peopleunderstand you better than you do. As you become more self-aware throughexperience and self-investigation, you see the connections between feelings,situations and events more clearly. You thus are better able to make creativechoices in response to life's slings and arrows, instead of reacting from aless conscious drive.

IndividualStrengths Being Developed at This Time

As you travel life's path, the balance ofyour attention changes. These shifts allow you to experience the world indifferent ways for a period of time, and thereby to develop new skills. Theperiodic shifts provide what you need to gain perspective if you are to takeadvantage of learning opportunities as they are presented. These shifts maycall for career changes as well.

At this time you have the potential togrow through developing greater awareness of your feelings. During this periodyou can improve your ability to judge situations while avoiding the unnecessarynegativity of arguing. You may also find you have a new level of reserve, evensecretiveness.

For the next few months, you mayexperience an eagerness to get on with new career plans. As you learn tocontrol 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 morerestless energy, together with self-confidence and enthusiasm. You expect tofind a place in your career and to hold it. You desire recognition and maysometimes seem self-absorbed. Your sociability is a career strength.

The qualities you stand to gain at thistime 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. Youtake a simple approach to personal advancement and cut to the heart of anyproblem. You resist letting go of details that have served their purpose andyou need to clear out old material from time to time. You can bring your self-awarenessto the bargaining table and make a good mediator because you are honest.

HowYou Relate to the World in General

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

Psychologists use the terms introversionand extraversion to describe two general ways of approaching the world. Thesetendencies are rather obvious to others, yet you may not recognize them inyourself.

The extravert evaluates events externalto the self. For such an individual other people are the basis for personaldecisions. In extraversion the flow of energy is outward; your thoughts mainlyconcern external objects. You tend to live life and then figure it outafterward. You are usually relaxed and confident, plunging into the waterbefore you know how deep it is. Conduct is essentially governed by externalconditions. You tend to unload your emotions as you go along and take anexpansive attitude to everything.

Another pair of differences fall on acontinuum between very self-directed and self-motivated to more responsive orreactive to other people and outside forces.

You have the potential to develop, toincrease your skills and awareness. There is movement in the direction ofgreater personal control in your life than others experience. You like to be incommand of situations and create your own circumstances. Even if you work forother people, you like to be responsible for your own work. You are able toexercise initiative and find ways to apply your will to projects. You like tosee your projects grow and you put in the necessary energy for this tohappen.  You tend to measuresuccess in terms of personal results.

These two tendencies combine to produce apersonal approach to the world.

Your role in the world focuses on how youexercise authority and earn respect. As a general rule you are comfortable innon-intimate situations with friends and groups and you are able to setobjectives 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-consciousmind, and value time spent alone. You are able to work in seclusion.

A third consideration is how your mindfunctions. How you assimilate information and then put that information to usein the outer world can have a huge impact on your career success. It influencesnot only the career choice itself, but also the area you choose within thecareer.

You are an eager beaver type, a personwho is always into the next activity ahead of everyone else. Yet you needsomeone to precede you, to wave your flag, so to speak. You sometimes feel asthough you have arrived at your destination before you sent the telegram sayingyou were coming. The slower pace of communication helps you to moderate yourthinking.

Summary

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

 

 

YourVocational Indicators

Each of us has a natural inclination tofunction a particular way, and these tendencies become pronounced in vocationalactivities. We carry our personal desires across a personal boundary into thesocial milieu and find greater or lesser resistance to our desires there. Yetwe may stubbornly press on, attempting to bend the world to our personaldesires. 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 fromsocial feedback and adapt our approach to the world, we find that life isgentler and career more satisfying. Your personal emotional bias, how youconcentrate your talents, and how you best learn from experience all impactvocation in spite of any desires to the contrary. There are several fundamentalqualities that bear on vocation, and the following paragraphs consider thesefactors.

The focus is on your timidity anddepression. Saturn is not strong in Pisces when it comes to emotion. You willwork best in an environment that is respectful of your reserved attitude andthat removes you from unnecessary personality struggles with others. You likechallenging problems, but need a quiet space in which to solve them.You havethe ability to concentrate on your ability to work alone and spiritual staminato 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 hardwork will achieve the best results. Because of this, you may be steered in adirection that you cannot easily perceive from within the confines of pastexperience. You need to look beyond past experience and desires into the largercontext of your life to find the best place for your efforts. Most peopleexpect a career to provide status, money, and other satisfactions. The type ofwork indicated here may seem odd, but deserves consideration nonetheless, as itmay deliver long term rewards that you cannot perceive at the outset.

The personal assets you need to developfor career success are perseverance and a cheerful attitude toward the humdrumdetails of life. Your first job may require very hard work, but you buildcharacter for later, more prestigious positions. After a hard workingbeginning, you can go in just about any direction, as you have the ability towork and study hard in a profession or business.

CurrentDirection

Whatever you have learned about your spiritualmission, now is the time to rethink it, discarding any leftover ideas that donot fit into your plan. You personally have expressed your creativity and nowhave the task of engendering the creative impulse in others.

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

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

At this time you need to control therestlessness that may arise. Steady, thorough communication and study ofproblems in your career will contribute to deepening your ability to placeyourself in the most promising position. What you learn at this time will be available to you always, so payattention.

All of these considerations come togetherinto a package of skills, decisions, and goals combined with your currentpotential. The sum total is a description of your ability to learn fromexperience. If you are well placed in a career field, emotionally suited to thedemands of the actual job, and oriented clearly to your goals, you will besuccessful.

How toApply Your Energy to the Career

Having looked at how a solid foundationmay be established, we now turn to the application of your personal energy tothe goal of fulfilling your dreams. The previous paragraphs suggest the mostnatural form or structure of your career, while the following shows how youpursue 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 workwith your natural abilities.

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

Your dramatic style is a career asset forsure, putting you into the forefront with self-confidence and allowing yourzeal to infect your coworkers. Your successes may lead you to believe you areperfect, and this is not the case. It is better to have self-assurance that does not require pushing otherpeople around. Generally honest and above board, you can become a fine leaderand responsible member of the community.Early in life energy almost seems touse you, as you have little control over desires. Throughout your life youlearn to moderate desires of the moment with longer term plans, and you adaptto the environment of parental control, school requirements, peer pressure,marriage or relationship responsibilities, etc. Energy becomes, instead of itsown director, an agent for your use, being guided by your will. You may findyour will power and determination change in their expression earlier or laterin your career, depending on your personal developmental path and how yourespond to life. Some uses may seem out of reach in youth and commonplace inmiddle age, or vice versa.

 

 

YourCareer Success

It is helpful to think of career successseparate from the money earned, as success is not limited to material gain. Aperson could be held in very high esteem in his career field and not be thebiggest success in the money department. Also, the slice of the career pie willoften determine the earning potential. Of the three factors involved invocation (career, money and work environment), the career itself has the mostpublic impact. Here is where reputation is built, here is where one gainsauthority in one's field, and here is where ambition can be fulfilled.

The desire for independence comes outstrongly in your career. You also are considerate of the other people in thework environment. Others should not try to push you too far. You can work wellalone, establishing an independent business, or can work with others if yoursensibilities are kept in mind.Career fields suited to you include agriculturalwork, 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, restaurantmanagement, sailing, shepherd, silversmith, social worker, tavern keeper andwater management.

You may find that at some point youundertake a second, rather different career that has the followingcharacteristics:

Leadership is a word designed for yourcareer. From childhood you wanted to be in charge of things. Not a person whoenjoys being the target of anyone's humor, you want the spotlight to show offonly the best, most socially attractive side of your personality.

You can develop a sense of howsignificant career is to your life in general, and also what factors affect theprogress 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 responsesaffect your work.

You become aware of spiritual motivesrather separate from your self-awareness. These motives are no less potent,only less integrated with your knowledge of yourself.You may be more in touchwith your own consciousness than most people because what you are and what youknow about yourself are directly related. If there were no aspect between Sunand Midheaven, the connection would be less direct. You constructively expressyour energy by focusing on advancement toward success. You know yourself wellenough to recognize your direction or mission early in the game. The easiestpath to self-awareness for you is not through thinking, so you tend toward acareer that focuses on other strengths. You may find that you experience socialinteractions as though through a veil or fog. Yet you feel a powerful drive tobe understood and accepted. You find yourself acting without self-examination,and this is not always the best plan. You work best in situations whereconsiderable training is involved, so that your actions become secondnature.You are interested in expansion, optimism and religious or spiritualinterests.  Your thinkingemphasizes the nobler facets of human expression as a result of consciousness.The urge to expand is joined with self-awareness to produce direction andoptimism. This combination often signals success throughout life because thehigher, more comprehensive awareness of cosmic law is so closely linked toego-consciousness. It is as though the two are one expression for you. Thedesire to accomplish something important can be a powerful motivation, andleads 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 aboutawareness of change and more about the limitations we find in the physicalenvironment. There is a focus on the structure of your own personality ratherthan on things outside the self. Because you may not have a strong sense of thestructure of social systems, there is a tendency to be self-critical, sometimesleading to an actual loss of ego-consciousness. Ego-consciousness is not placedwithin the framework of the world, and thus has no solid ground on which todevelop. The result is a difficulty in career and relationships which can onlybe overcome through steadfast adherence to your goals. The need for sufficientpractice in thinking is apparent; clear thought processes will negate anytendency toward depression. You have an instinctual understanding of thebalance of the people and circumstances around you. You won't have a consciousawareness of this, but it will be there, so trust it.Uncertainty is the keywordfor this combination. Ego-consciousness is frequently not available, or onlyafter great effort. You must work hard to manifest the higher qualities ofpsychic awareness. The strength gained from contemplative practice ofmeditation can provide more consistent mental focus which compensates fordreaminess and aimlessness. As you move into the 21st Century, you will findbetter ways to work with uncertainty, thereby relieving any depression andmental disturbance which this planet can bring. Then psychic awareness willbecome a source of depth and strength. The prerequisites are the trainedcapacity for mental focus and a grounded connection to the material world.Definition in the physical realm balances the lack of definition coming fromNeptune combinations. Power is often outside your conscious control. You findit is governed by unconscious drives for the most part. You develop adisciplined will through other channels.You have a heightened emotional lifewhich is directed into specific areas of your life. You pursue your goals withalmost fanatical zest and must be careful to consider other people in your excitement.Youuse your powerful mind to help you through difficult transitions in your life.A tendency toward rash action can create unnecessary tensions. You can useinner tension to guide the direction of persuasive arguments. You experiencepassionate relationships and you can use the physical tension to moderatebetween 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 inthe position to resolve disagreements. It is easy to expand into newrelationships. You relish opportunities to influence others and are a strongspeaker and leader. For you the pen truly is mightier than the sword. You havea pervasive desire for power; this desire can help you to attain leadershippositions. It is possible for you to lose everything and then to regenerateyour life. You experience cruelty in your life which must be offset by otherfactors. You have the potential to grow in spiritual awareness if you can avoidpurely egoistic aims. You are a highly sensitive person and can develop yourpsychic gifts steadily throughout your life.

Careeror Mission?

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

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

The search for equilibrium in your lifereaches beyond the limits of this plane of manifestation, seeking to integratethe experiences of body, mind and spirit into one profound experience ofunfolded consciousness. This level of integration occurs when the soul and thepersonality are brought into alignment through accident or through ritualexperience. Thus ritual is a valuable path for you as you develop a sense ofequilibrium. You can develop a fuller sense of the value of ritual throughthedesire to express through personality. This expression can become stubbornness,or it can exemplify purposeful progress. The co-existence of physical form andspiritual will illuminate our individual desires as well as the powerfulidealism of the larger sphere of life. "The secret ... is revealed in theblinding energy of light (through) the sudden removal ... of worldglamour."You can be energetic, even aggressive at times. At other times yourenergy is directed into thoughtful devotional activities, quieter but no lessenergetic.  Your path totransformation of difficulty into harmony - the most direct way to activelyengage will to guide your personal power - is to integrate power and will toact as a human being. You have the choice of how you implement your will.BothMars and Pluto tend to express through an instinctual relationship to life.Physical human instinct includes a desire and need to nurture the body/mind. Atthe same time there is a profound instinctual drive to discover meaning, somuch so that at some point life without meaning becomes intolerable. Just asphysical life is breathed into us, so is the life of the spirit instilledwithin us. "The light of substance ... is ... awaiting the stimulationcoming from the soul light."Psychic awareness can be focused to identifythe source of conflict and the ground upon which conflict may be resolved. Yourhigher vision is based on your examination of the essential duality of physicalmanifestation. One side of duality is the desire or passionate nature; theother side is the innate quality of compassion which comes from another levelof experience. The awareness of essential duality is joined with the activityof the mediator to resolve into Unity. You develop your capacity for compassionthroughthe nurturing capability of the material world which creates a physicalform in which our personality and soul can develop on the path to higherspiritual realization. You have deep experiences which reveal the light to you.You have the capability of unified understanding of the feminine principle inall its expressions, embodying it in the mental, emotional and physicalmanifestations. Outer attention to detail reveals your inner understanding ofunity.Concrete knowledge does not stop at the scientific definitions of things,nor is it limited to the scientific approach to understanding the relationshipsbetween people and things. It also includes a felt sense, an inner awareness ofthe right relationships between things. You can employ concrete knowledge inthe mediation between personality and soul, between physical life and higherconsciousness. Only through fusion of these apparently separate facets of yourbeing can you approach true knowledge. You tend to seek concrete knowledgethroughthe testing of opposites. Energies are weighed and balanced here, andunderstanding begins to form about the profitable uses of polarity. Harmony isnot only expressed through balance and symmetry, but through intentionalasymmetry as well. Knowing how to work with this concept allows you to achievenew levels of energy.Mediation occurs not only in conflict resolution betweenor among people; it is an internal psychic function as well.  The path toward fusion of heart andmind, the subjective purpose for manifestation, is perhaps the most centralexperience of wisdom that you will ever have.Both Mercury and Jupiter tend toexpress through the process of linking form and soul. Without this step thesoul would not attach to the body and life independent from the mother wouldnot be possible. This deep mystery occurs metaphorically while the Sun issinking to its lowest point of the year, suggesting that the mysteries of lifedwell in the dark recesses of consciousness.We all accumulate debts andresponsibilities on the path toward resolution of difficulties. It is throughthe exercise of intelligent activity - that is, the use of what we know and howwe employ that knowledge - that we even begin to approach the freedom we seekfrom such indebtedness. You seek intelligent activity in all areas of your lifethroughthe same sign as the sign of the Earth, which is the directionintelligent activity is most likely to move and will be described in a laterparagraph.

There is a particular direction in whichyour intelligent activity will most likely move. It is obviously where youposition yourself and represents your strongest capacities as a human being.You will display intelligent activity in and your lifes' mission throughsensitivity on both the material and soul planes. At times you feel limited oreven imprisoned in your body, yet you are able to use your physicalmanifestation to communicate about subjects of the Soul. You continually facethe possibility of raising your human desires to a higher level of spiritualexpression; through such activity you sympathetically raise your fellow beingsas well.
