This short extract gives you a taste of your personal "Career and Vocation" horoscope by Liz Greene.

At that age, we usually have dreams. When we are children, we are still capable of hearing the voice of the soul. As we grow older, the questions change. There is no longer time for dreaming; we must now "face reality" and think about how to survive in the big, bad old world. This astrological report is about your vocation. It is meant to help you get a sense of what you might be good at and what might be good for you, so that your working life has a meaning as well as a pay cheque. II. How You See the World

Yet there may be many kinds of logic, not all cerebral; and the intuition has its own form of logic which is not always available to conscious comprehension. Try to recognise that [...] [..] When you are attempting to be most "scientific", you are likely to be in the grip of an inspiration which, while perhaps immensely creative, is not Truth in any proven sense; and when you are being most careful to measure ideas against reality, you are at your most open [...] V. Working with Others
The two final chapters of "Career and Vocation" deal with the way you work together with your colleagues in your everyday working life, and what success means to you personally.One of the most important factors to consider in terms of your direction in life is how you work with others. Everyone has his or her own style of relating in the working environment; everyone has different needs and requirements. VI. What Success Really Means to You When people speak of "success", they generally mean a position of importance in the world's eyes, or a job that yields lots of money and all the material pleasures and comforts that implies. But success, in terms of the deeper issue of vocation, is a highly individual thing that means different things to different people.
