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.
[..] Material security is as relevant to you as it is to anyone, but you need to choose your vocation from the inside out, as it were, and not from the outside in. In other words, your work needs to be firmly rooted in what makes your heart and soul sing, not in how large the [...]
[..] Ordinary life can make you feel bleak and depressed at times, and you long to be the protagonist in some great drama, or the poet who can distil the passionate longings of aeons in a few lines. With all this teeming life within, it is essential that you have a creative outlet [...]
[..] This kind of intuitive thinking, rather than mechanical skills, is the true vision of the artist; and even if you do not possess the requisite mechanical skills to paint beautiful pictures or play an instrument well, you are a natural storyteller with a naturally holistic [...]
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 [...]
[..] You need not only to accept the gap between vision and reality, but also to let go of your work when it is good enough - for "good enough" may be the thing you need most to learn to recognise about your work. You will probably never be entirely happy about compromising your [...]
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.
