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.

[..] You have a quality of detachment which is necessary for such introverted work, yet you are also able to feel deeply and identify with others' motives and emotional states. You might be as able to write a powerful "thriller" as a clear and concise textbook or manual. You do [...]

[..] You are not frightened of working alone, and a creative field might suit you very well. You would probably be less happy working within a large company or institution where there is no chance to explore things in depth, or express your serious and reflective nature. You dislike [...]

[..] This fine mental ability equips you to engage in research of all kinds, and you might be attracted to spheres such as conventional and alternative medicine or psychology, or engineering or technological work, or financial or economic analyses. You need to work in an area [...]

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.

[..] You are likely to be a high achiever because of your ability to cope with worldly limits and your tenacity and willingness to work hard to get where you want to go. But you may spoil the pleasure you could take if you do not make room for optimism and a willingness to explore [...]

[..] Letting others help you may also be difficult, because you may fear they will take too much power away if you rely on them too much. Enmity and power struggles could also arise if you assert your own power too strongly without recognising that others need to feel important [...]

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.
