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.

[..] But you would not tolerate a director or CEO claiming the reward for your ideas, or a team claiming credit for your hard work. You may also need to recognise that not everyone likes hard challenges. This does not mean they are weak, stupid, or hypocritical. But you have [...]

[..] If you are a more physical sort of person, competitive sport might suit you; if you are a more intellectual type, debate might also suit you. To get the best from your high levels of energy and determination, you need a fitting opponent, whether this is a group, an ideology, [...]

[..] It could be very hard for any employer to get it "right" in terms of dealing with you, whether you exhibit your impatience overtly or subtly under a cloak of diffident charm. Always aim for independence in your work. You might make a fine artist or writer, for you do not [...]

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. Please click here to read a complete sample report

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

[..] Your independence is a positive attribute which gives you the capacity to go it alone and create the kind of working life you wish. It also allows you to work at projects with the minimum of help and advice, and this makes you able to take the initiative and assume considerable [...]

[..] You can easily feel trapped and angry if you have to compromise too much, or take orders from others; and the best way to avoid this is to avoid work situations where a great deal of compromise is required. But sooner or later, somewhere along the line, you may need to bend [...]

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.
