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 ideals are extremely important to you, and your work has to fulfil at least a part of those ideals. Without this, even if you are receiving a large pay cheque, you are likely to feel discontented. You are a natural seeker, and spiritual ideals may mean a great deal [...]

[..] Too much conflict in your working life can make you feel very depressed if not actually physically ill; and because you are not terribly well equipped to deal with primitive emotions such as deep anger, you are more likely to stifle your own unhappiness, forcing it to emerge [...]

[..] You also need to take care with the people you surround yourself with at work. Because of your great sensitivity, you pick up all the unspoken undercurrents flowing around you, sometimes without even realising why you are feeling uncomfortable. Your psychic openness is a [...]

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 ideals are extremely high; and although it would be wrong for you to be disloyal to them, you may also need to recognise that loyalty can also encompass a certain amount of compromise and acceptance of human limits. Your romantic vision of how life could be may make [...]

[..] Yet you need the realism and strong boundaries which this side of you could contribute, especially if you are involved in work which has an idealistic basis. Such work, and the kind of people it attracts, need to be constantly measured against the limits of reality, for [...]

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.
