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.

[..] In order to feel fulfilled, you need to be creative, and you need to put into form those truths, images and dreams which reflect your deepest values. You could never be happy selling your soul in order to make a living; and even though you might be able to find creative [...]
[..] No purpose will be served by reworking a painting or a novel or a piece of music for forty years, always trying to achieve some impossible standad which ensures that no one else will ever see what you have produced. You need not only to accept the gap between vision and [...]
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.
