I. Introduction

This short extract gives you a taste of your personal "Career and Vocation" horoscope by Liz Greene. The small samples taken from various chapters convey an impression of the complete vocation horoscope (18-25 pages) which can be ordered as an E-Horoscope or a bound book in the AstroShop.

When we are children, people say to us, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" 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

This chapter briefly describes your personal perspective on life and explains how you can best express this in your career.

III. Your aptitudes and strengths

This chapter, which contains 8-10 pages, is one of the most comprehensive sections in the "Career and Vocation" horoscope. Here is a short selection of three samples from the numerous aptitudes described in the complete report.

An honest and realistic understanding of your fundamental strengths can help you to orientate yourself in the world and put your energy into areas where you can hope to shine and achieve at least many of your most cherished goals.

[..] Your real field of work is the imagination; and whether you express it in obviously creative ways such as writing, painting, or theatre, or in the helping professions through depth psychotherapy and dream-work, you would never be able to bear for long a field of endeavour [...]

[..] There is a devotional quality in your nature that needs to be included in your work. You long to feel that, in however humble or indirect a fashion, you are serving something deeper or higher. You would rapidly become depressed and unhappy if you have to work in a sphere [...]

[..] This is not "sublimation" of personal needs and drives, but a transformation of personal experience into forms which are larger than your personal life and allow you to feel you are part of a greater unity. What you seek in love is also what you seek for your life's meaning; [...]

IV. Know Your Limits

This chapter describes your personal limitations and suggests how you can deal with these in your professional life. In the complete horoscope, this chapter is about 5-7 pages in length.

Recognising your innate limitations can help you to focus your energy in the right direction and get the maximum fulfilment from your work.

[..] You could never be happy selling your soul in order to make a living; and even though you might be able to find creative vehicles in spheres which allow some compromise between your vision of reality and the needs of the collective, nevertheless the compromise must be minimal [...]

[..] Whether you work in one of the "pure" arts or in more commercial fields such as design, you are open to many subtle levels of life which others do not perceive, and you long to be able to create things which serve as a bridge between this world and those other levels to [...]

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.
