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.
