Vocational Astrology Report

 

ASCENDANT AND CUSPS OF VOCATIONAL HOUSES

The horoscope is divided into twelve sections or "houses," which are patterned after the twelve signs of the zodiac.  Each house represents a different area of life, and the sign of the zodiac on the cusp of each of the houses describes how we express the matters governed by that house.  In vocational astrology, the most relevant houses are the First House whose cusp is the Ascendant, the Second House of income, the Sixth House of daily work, and the Tenth House of Career whose cusp is the Midheaven.  The houses are derived from your exact date, time, and place of birth.

 

 

 

Taurus Ascendant

Fixed, Earth, Yin

Keywords: practical, loyal, persevering, resistant to change, sensual, security-conscious, possessive, dependable, nurturing, artistic, value-oriented.

With Taurus rising, you tend to be a bit on the quiet side and may not be sufficiently assertive when it comes to getting your needs met.  You are unlikely to want to take charge, and instead may prefer to let someone else deal with other people or manage a situation.  You generally prefer a more indirect, behind the scenes approach, and you may like to work alone.  In your occupation, you most likely prefer security and established routines.  You enjoy the process of building something and following it through to completion.  You like to do things your own way and may have a problem delegating responsibility.  You are likely to be a pragmatic person who is good at laying foundations, setting goals, and finding practical solutions.  There is often a fondness for work that makes use of your body or that allows you to manipulate physical reality in some way.  You are a reliable worker who understands the bottom line and who has a talent for systematically analyzing a problem.

Key phrases for Taurus are "I have" or "I possess."   Your appreciation of quality, value, material goods, and excellent workmanship will assist you in any career.  Taurus indicates a great deal of patience, tenacity, practicality, and common sense.  Success often comes after a period of apprenticeship in which you master skills and lay firm foundations for future advancement.  You have an innate talent for managing money and accumulating wealth.  Most likely you would prefer a job that has a set routine and that allows you to feel comfortable and worthwhile.  You may gain recognition for becoming the spokesperson of a particular system of values.  Taurus is a sensual earthy sign and often works in a field that involves direct hands-on contact with the body or with material reality.  The characteristic Taurean appreciation of beauty, art, and luxury may also color your choice of career.

Typical Taurus occupations include banking, finance, architecture, farming, agriculture, and business.  Because Venus rules Taurus, you may do well dealing in luxury items or the beauty industry.  Because Taurus rules the throat, you may have musical talent.  In afflicted charts, career setbacks may be due to overindulgence, inflexibility, intolerance, personal vanity, dishonesty, or shady business dealings.

Some notable people with Taurus rising include Neil Armstrong, Christiaan Barnard, Wilt Chamberlain, Neil Diamond, Robert Dole, Mia Farrow, Anna Freud, Michael Jordan, Martin Luther King, Jr., George Lucas, Maria von Trapp, and Andrew Wyeth.

The sign, house, and aspects of Venus, which rules Taurus, will give further clues about your self-assertive drives.  The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below. 

FIRST DECAN: Your Ascendant lies between 0 and 10 degrees of Taurus.  Hence, your sense of identity also comes under the influence of the first decan of Taurus, which is governed by TAURUS, VENUS, and Chaldean ruler MERCURY.  The combination of Venus and Mercury may give a pleasant manner of expressing yourself in speech, writing, or song.  Some well-known people with this decan rising include Pearl Bailey, Billy Crystal, Andrew Cunanan, Newt Gingrich, Charles Manson, Liza Minnelli, Nancy Reagan, and Joan Sutherland.

 

 

 

Capricorn Midheaven

Our vocation is shown by the tenth house, the sign and decan of its cusp (which is the Midheaven or MC in most house systems), the ruler(s) of the tenth, any planets therein, and any aspects involving tenth house planets, the tenth house ruler(s), or the MC.

Key phrases for Capricorn are "I seek" and "I climb."  Like the mountain goat, people with a Capricorn Midheaven aim for the highest peak and persist in their climb despite any delays, obstacles, loneliness, or hardships along the way.  Good business acumen, organizational skill, and administrative ability are common.  As a person with Midheaven in Capricorn, you are serious, ambitious, and disciplined about your work.  You set high standards, and you value respect and recognition.  You have a highly developed sense of responsibility and a willingness to proceed patiently and persistently along the road to accomplishment.  Your career will probably involve a fairly long period of apprenticeship aimed at the mastery of basic skills.

The desire for success and prestige may motivate you to pursue a profession like law, medicine, osteopathy, or dentistry.  You might aspire to a top position in business, politics, the law, education, management, the military, a large corporation, government, or public service.  Your no-nonsense thinking can lead to success in academics, mathematics, accounting, banking, systems analysis, computer programming, research, science, or engineering.  Your desire for tangible or practical results may draw you to factory work, building, farming, physical education, architecture, or some type of craftsmanship.   In afflicted charts, career setbacks are likely to be due to excessive ambition, problems accepting authority, status seeking, the calculated manipulation of others, or settling for mediocrity.

The sign, house, and aspects of Saturn, which rules Capricorn, will give further clues about career potentials in your chart.  The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below.

THIRD DECAN: Because your Midheaven lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Capricorn, your career comes under the influence of the third decan of Capricorn, which is governed by VIRGO, MERCURY, and Chaldean ruler, the SUN.  You are likely to be intelligent, hard working, and responsible.  There may be an interest in careers related to health, medicine, research, nursing, education, teaching, communications, or writing.  The influence of the Sun may draw you to management, politics, or the performing arts.

 

Gemini Second House Cusp

Income and resources are shown by the second house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving second house planets, the second house ruler(s), or the cusp of the second house.

With Gemini on the second cusp, you are versatile and adaptable.  Your work is likely to involve a great deal of speaking, writing, editing, reporting, learning, teaching, or other forms of communication.  You do well in occupations that require intellectual activity, mental agility, and/or manual dexterity.  Whatever work you do, you are likely to have many contacts with others and to be constantly on the go.  This is an excellent placement for journalists, announcers, teachers, linguists, grammarians, computer programmers, technicians, printers, advertisers, clerical workers, stenographers, publishers, counselors, mediators, arbitrators, attorneys, lecturers, and others whose work requires facility with the written or spoken word.  You would feel at home in an office or a classroom where the focus is on exchanging information with others.  Gemini is also connected with commerce, travel, aviation, transportation, and the various means of transport.  You thrive on variety and mental stimulation, and you may find yourself having two jobs or many extracurricular interests related to your career.  Because Gemini is a sign of duality, your paychecks may come from more than one source.

  

Libra Sixth House Cusp

Our daily work and working environment are shown by the sixth house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving sixth house planets, the sixth house ruler(s), or the cusp of the sixth house.

With Libra here, you are a refined, multi-talented, and able individual who has many avenues open for occupational success.  You could do well in a career that calls for intelligence, fairness, balance, tact, harmony, justice, communication, and the ability to adjust relationships.  You could be a fine lawyer, judge, marriage counselor, social worker, psychologist, university professor, political scientist, mediator, or educator.  Venus, the ruler of Libra, often indicates artistic or musical talent, and this position can be found in the charts of artists, sculptors, models, fashion designers, fine chefs, glass blowers, Web page developers, photographers, musicians, performers, entertainers, and creative writers.  On a more practical level, you could do well in surgery, carpentry, roofing, bricklaying, and any endeavor that requires a sense of form, proportion, precision and order. 

 

Planets in Signs and Houses
 

 

Sun in Aries

The Sun symbolizes our core identity and basic life energy.  For us to feel authentic, our careers must allow for expression of our Sun sign's creativity and will to be.

Keywords: direct, forceful, initiating, enthusiastic, pioneering, assertive, optimistic, courageous, impulsive, rash, independent, competitive, bold, athletic, energetic. 

Exuberant Aries, the wild Ram, is known for its independence, energy, courage, daring, pioneering spirit, assertiveness, love of challenge, and unabashed willingness to butt heads with the competition.  Action-oriented Mars, the ruler of Aries, is the ancient god of war.  As the first sign of the zodiac (marking the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere), self-centered Aries likes to be "number one."   The typical Aries native loves to initiate, lead, pioneer, command, encourage, inspire others, and pursue independent action.  Aries thrives on excitement, risk-taking, danger, action, passion, and physical activity.  Aries likes to be in charge, issue orders, and put ideas into action.  As an Aries, you are likely to be an industrious worker with natural executive, leadership, or supervisory ability. Others may regard you as impetuous, bossy, hotheaded, and a bit pushy.

Fiery Aries is often drawn to work with combustion, weapons, explosives, sharp tools, iron, metals, machines, vehicles, aircraft, mechanical devices, and cutting instruments.  Many athletes, explorers, pilots, racecar drivers, firefighters, surgeons, dentists, entrepreneurs, actors, politicians, butchers, police, and soldiers are born with the Sun in Aries.  There is often mechanical skill, engineering ability, physical agility, and manual dexterity.  The incisive nature of Mars may lead to an interest in psychiatry, investigation, research, or depth psychology.  Outgoing Aries does well in sales, theatrical work, teaching, training, recruiting, and marketing.  Your desire for autonomy may lead you to run your own business or to be your own boss.  Aries seeks to "boldly go where no man has gone before," and Captain Kirk of Starship Enterprise may well have been born under this sign.  The Aries love of excitement and rapid decision-making may give an interest in stock trading, investing, gambling, or high finance.  Common faults include a "me first" attitude and a sense that "I want what I want when I want it." 

In a statistical survey of sun signs by Paul Field (1964), self-assured and dynamic Aries produced a large number of airplane pilots, and Air Force and Navy fighters.  Aries was also the fourth most common sign among prominent people in Who's Who (after Pisces, Capricorn, and Aquarius).  Some famous Aries personalities include Butch Cassidy, Daniel Day-Lewis, Leonardo da Vinci, J.P. Morgan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Joan Crawford, Diana Ross, William Shatner, Marlon Brando, David Letterman, Tennessee Williams, Saint Theresa of Avila, President Thomas Jefferson, Cesar Chavez, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Warren Beatty, and General Colin Powell.  Further information about your basic motivational system can be found by studying the sign, house, and aspects of Mars, the ruler of Aries.  The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) below. 

THIRD DECAN: Your Sun lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Aries (approximately April 10 - 19), your sense of identity and purpose in life is influenced by the third decan of Aries, which is governed by SAGITTARIUS, JUPITER, and Chaldean ruler VENUS.  Jupiter enhances your interest in travel, higher education, sports, competition, physical fitness, adventure, and anything that broadens your horizons.  Sagittarius increases your idealism and philosophical interests and often indicates profit through an ability to forecast future trends.  You may have literary or linguistic ability and might do well in publishing or broadcasting.  Venus can indicate financial acumen and may also lead to artistic pursuits including acting, painting, music, singing, poetry, and so on.  Some with this placement excel in the fashion and beauty industry.  Members of this decan include Ellen Barkin, Oleg Cassini, Clarence Darrow, Leopold Stokowski, Hillel Slovak, Joseph Pulitzer, Henry James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Thomas Jefferson, John Gielgud, David Letterman, Henry Mancini, and J.P. Morgan.

  

Sun in the Twelfth House

The Sun represents our individuality, willpower, and sense of self.  The house occupied by the Sun reveals areas where we can feel authentic and express who we truly are. 

With the Sun in the twelfth house, your work may involve matters related to fantasy, illusion, intuition, or imagination.  You value your privacy and may prefer to work in solitude, in an indirect manner, or behind the scenes.  Here we find mystics, poets, storytellers, musicians, songwriters, photographers, filmmakers, painters, museum curators, art teachers, dancers, actors, showmen, creative writers, spiritual masters, saints, martyrs, nonviolent activists, occultists, psychics, astrologers, magicians, and patrons of the arts.  You have a strong sense of compassion and social welfare, and you understand the universality of humankind.

There is often an interest in medical research or in healing, especially on a psychological or spiritual level.  This is a beneficial placement for psychologists, psychotherapists, hypnotists, priests, nuns, and others who work compassionately with the human spirit.  A fondness for animals is common.  Some with this position work with oils, paints, chemicals, alcohol, drugs, gases, or liquids of various kinds.  There is often an interest in matters related to the sea such as sailing, marine biology, and so on.  You may find yourself working in a school setting, university, library, museum, hospital, laboratory, prison, large institution, or place of seclusion or confinement.   In afflicted charts, there is a potential for victimization, substance abuse, playing the martyr role, or other forms of self-undoing.

  

 

 

Moon in Capricorn

The Moon represents our feelings, emotions, capacity for empathy, psychological reactions, and habitual or subconscious patterning.  It signifies our need for security and our mothering instincts -- how we feel about, nurture, and care for one another.

A Capricorn Moon usually indicates that you are ambitious, cautious, pragmatic, reserved, and a bit shy.  You are also likely to be methodical, practical, thorough, hard working, efficient, and determined to succeed.  There is often a felt need for status, power, and authority that might lead you to a career in politics, the entertainment industry, or the law.  Many with this placement have an interest in down-to-earth occupations related to providing some useful or necessary service (electrician, mechanic, nurse, carpenter, structural engineer, shopkeeper, plumber, cook, glass blower, printer, accountant, government worker, computer networker, etc.).  You desire material security and firm foundations in your life.  Your appreciation of the need for a structured society may activate an interest in political science, government, politics, or civil rights.  

Traditional astrology warns that, in afflicted charts, this position of the Moon may be associated with callous, ruthless, dishonest, fraudulent, sly, or calculating behavior, usually because of having felt insufficiently cared for or nurtured in childhood.  It is important for individuals with the Moon here to temper the overweening ambition of Capricorn with strong ethical standards for their behavior.

 

Moon in the Ninth House

A ninth house Moon suggests that you feel strongly attached to a particular philosophy, belief system, religion, or worldview.  Most likely you are quite restless and long for excitement, travel, exploration, and adventure.  Your career may take you abroad or far from home.  You are an imaginative, perceptive, and visionary person who loves to learn and teach or instruct others.  Your accurate hunches and ability to predict future trends can lead to success at investing, stock trading, weather forecasting, marketing, advertising, fashion design, publishing, promotions, divination, psychic counseling, and similar endeavors that depend on intuitive insight.

Areas in which you are likely to feel at home include education, psychology, philosophy, religion, the law, engineering, chemistry, social science, writing, and public relations.  There is often an interest in forecasting, the Internet, metaphysics, astrology, travel, geography, aviation, import/export, and dealings with foreigners.  A fondness for horses or large animals is common.  Personal contacts with physical or mental illness may draw you toward occupations connected with counseling, healing, psychotherapy, psychological testing, nursing, hypnosis, or other therapeutic methods.

 

Mercury in Pisces

Mercury is the messenger of the gods.  This first planet from the Sun represents our mind and thinking process -- how we learn, analyze, reason, and communicate.  It also reveals how we use our hands, move our bodies, and explore our surroundings.

You have a receptive, intuitive intellect that allows you to perceive things that would normally escape the notice of a purely logic mind.  Some may consider you psychic.  There is often an interest in religion, philosophy, literature, psychology, unconscious processes, psychotherapy, meditation, prayer, mysticism, and spirituality.  You are especially aware of the needs of the less fortunate members of society.  Your creative imagination and rich fantasy life may find expression in music, poetry, dance, photography, fashion, design, creative writing, or works of art.  If Mercury is heavily afflicted, there is a risk of nebulous or escapist thinking that can lead to problems with addiction, mental illness, deluded beliefs, or self-undoing.  Used constructively, this energy can be put to use in fields such as social work, healing, counseling, spiritual development, mental health, or anything that benefits the public welfare.  You appreciate the value of silence and the need to spend time alone.

 

Mercury in the Eleventh House

An eleventh house Mercury suggests an original, inventive mind and a unique way of viewing reality.  You tend to be progressive and somewhat unorthodox in your thinking.  Your capacity for objective and dispassionate analysis can make you a fine scientist, mathematician, counselor, advisor, psychiatrist, or psychotherapist.  Your work may involve the use of computers and modern technology.  There is usually a genuine desire to improve the lot of your fellow human beings.

 

Venus in Pisces

Venus is the goddess of love.  This second planet from the Sun rules our affections, values, enjoyments, and how we relate to others.  Venus also governs art, beauty, adornment, pleasure, fun, and our sense of appreciation of the finer things in life.

Venus in Pisces indicates a creative imagination that is useful in any type of artistic, musical, or literary work.  There is often an interest in mythology, symbolism, dreams, illusion, poetry, religion, psychology, hypnosis, altered states, or in various types of healing.  Some with this position value solitude and privacy, and they may prefer to work by themselves or in a quiet setting.  Often there is an interest in assisting those who are disadvantaged, ill, oppressed, or less fortunate.  Gains may come through work connected with hospitals, prisons, churches, libraries, large institutions, or places of confinement.

 

Venus in the Eleventh House 

An eleventh house Venus indicates a sociable personality and an enjoyment of friends and group activities.  You may prefer to work in a situation where you can be part of a team.  Your ideals are humanitarian and egalitarian, and there is often interest in fields where you can render assistance to your fellow human beings.  Others are likely to turn to you for counsel or advice, and some with this position become psychiatrists or social workers.  You are good at networking, and your social contacts benefit your career.  A talent for science, computers, electronics, technology, mathematics, musical composition, or other activities requiring abstract thinking is not uncommon.

 

Mars in Aries

Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun, is the ancient god of war.  Mars represents our libido, initiative, and physical energy.  The sign and house placement of Mars reveal how and where we express our passion, assert ourselves, and expend our energy. 

Mars readily expresses its energy in its home sign of Aries.  You are likely to be energetic, self-motivated, outgoing, assertive, and enthusiastic about whatever you do.  You are a natural leader who thrives on challenge and competition.  Your positive attitude goes a long way toward getting others to do what you want.  You work quickly and are good at starting things.  Others admire your initiative and pioneering spirit, but you are probably weak on the follow-through.  There is often athletic ability, an enjoyment of sports and physical activity, and a strong sex drive.  Mars in its home sign may indicate an interest in matters related to fire, weapons, sharp instruments, vehicles, aircraft, battles, adventure, risk, danger, exploration, adventure, excitement, and so on.

You may well have a talent for any of the traditional Aries occupations such as manager, leader, director, executive, supervisor, teacher, trainer, recruiter, politician, public servant, surgeon, police officer, warrior, soldier, engineer, firefighter, journalist, metal worker, butcher, actor, builder, athlete, pilot, driver, explorer, or pioneer.  Mars here can also make you impulsive, self-centered, and hotheaded at times.  You will need to learn self-discipline and control; otherwise, in your perpetual enthusiasm for trying something new, you may find it difficult to learn from your mistakes and continue to repeat them.  The best advice is to think before you act and to keep in mind that "haste makes waste."

 

Mars in the Twelfth House 

Mars may have a hard time expressing its outgoing assertive energy in the introspective twelfth house.  Sometimes it indicates difficulty arising from repressed anger or a sexual secret that has been part of your development.  Your energy flows naturally toward twelfth house matters and may find a constructive outlet in health care, research, hospital or prison work, charitable activities, public welfare work, occupations connected with the arts, psychotherapy, religious interests, or any field that provides service or enlightenment to others.  Most likely you will need time to yourself for reflection, prayer, and meditation.  There is often an interest in the unconscious mind and an empathic ability to understand other people. 

Many with this position have a talent for writing, music, dance, film, photography, poetry, art, fashion, design, or other creative activities.  Some direct their energies toward evangelistic, philosophical, psychic, spiritual, mystical, mythical, or occult matters.  It is not uncommon to find yourself working in a large institution where people can spend time in seclusion, confinement, study, prayer, or quiet contemplation.

 

Jupiter in Scorpio

Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun, is the king of Mount Olympus and the most benefic of all the planets.  Jupiter represents expansion, wisdom, the higher mind, and the broadening of horizons.  The sign and house placements of Jupiter show how and where we encounter good fortune and continue to grow in body, mind, and spirit. 

Jupiter occupying Scorpio enhances your willpower, perseverance, resourcefulness, and love of challenge and competition.  Placed in the sign of Mars and Pluto, Jupiter gives great emotional intensity, personal magnetism, and faith in oneself.  In extreme cases, this position may reflect megalomaniac tendencies of Napoleonic proportion.  There is often a strong interest in delving profoundly into the nature of things, whether it be investigation related to basic science research, unconscious fantasy, unsolved mysteries, the occult, or paranormal phenomena.  Sometimes this interest in probing, cutting, and penetrating leads to occupations as diverse as surgeon, butcher, miner, mortician, or even bullfighter.  The Mars rulership of Scorpio may draw you to work involving danger, risk, or vigorous physical activity, such as police or military work, competitive sports, firefighting, or anything involving the use of weapons, sharp instruments, or mechanical devices.

Because Scorpio governs the reproductive organs, one's sexuality and a fondness for pleasure may be reflected in the choice of career.  Scorpio is also associated with occupations having to do with death and dying, rebirth, recycling, destruction, demolition, elimination, restoration, recycling, and regeneration.  Healers with this position seek to relieve the suffering of those who have undergone abuse, loss, or trauma.  This position is common among successful physicians, surgeons, dentists, psychologists, hypnotists, engineers, and chemists.  It is also seen in the charts of machinists, mechanics, railroad officials, salvage and repair workers, and people involved with vehicles and transportation (especially by sea).  Scorpio is a financial sign and Jupiter here may lead to success in banking, accounting, investing, or similar endeavors.  There may also be an interest in matters that are hidden, secret, occult, or mysterious.

 

Jupiter in the Seventh House

With Jupiter in the seventh house, you need to "reach out and touch someone," often in a collaborative or advisory manner.  Your work is likely to involve providing some type of service or counsel to clients who seek you out for your expertise or special talent.  Entertainers with this position feel tremendous gratification that they are touching other people with their artistic, dramatic, or musical performance.  You have a knack for putting people at ease.  This position of Jupiter often indicates popularity and public approval that can attract a large number of customers or clients.  It is favorable for those who enter politics, diplomacy, counseling, the performing arts, or the legal profession.  You could do well as a receptionist or a spokesperson for an organization.

 

Saturn in Leo 

Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, is the most distant planet that can be seen by the naked eye.  It marks the outer limits of the visible solar system and has been called at various times the Cosmic Teacher, Father Time, and the Grim Reaper.  Saturn symbolizes limitations, hardships, boundaries, fears, and the lessons we must learn.  Like all good teachers, Saturn rewards hard work, discipline, and persistent effort. 

Saturn in Leo indicates ambition and organizational ability.  You can be quite serious about pursuing your goals, but you may feel somewhat inhibited about displaying your talents in public.  Being recognized for your hard work and professionalism is important to your self-esteem.  You tend to be very disciplined about recreational or creative endeavors, and you may turn a hobby or sport into a career.  There is often teaching ability.  Some with this position work in Leo-ruled occupations such as promotions, theater, directing, performing arts, sports, the entertainment industry, speculative ventures, business administration, and fields having to do with children or animals.

 

Saturn in the Fourth House

With Saturn in the fourth house, you take your family and domestic responsibilities very seriously.  A feeling of having been emotionally unsupported in childhood may affect your entire life and leads some with this position to pursue careers in mental health or counseling.  Your occupation might involve building, construction, real estate, farming, manufacturing, or providing domestic goods and services (food, shelter, clothing, etc.).  There is often an interest in psychology, history, anthropology, antiques, archeology, human development, and other fields that examine past influences.  You may also enjoy the study of chemistry, geology, meteorology, or other earth sciences.

 

THE THREE OUTER PLANETS

In our solar system, Saturn is most distant planet from the earth that is visible to the naked eye.  The three outer planets -- Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto -- lie beyond Saturn's orbit and can only be seen by telescope.  These outer planets spend many years traveling through each sign, and thus they tend to affect an entire generation.  Only their house placements and close aspects are significant in the interpretation of an individual horoscope.  Though not personally significant by itself, the sign placement of the three outer planets can reinforce similar traits found elsewhere in the horoscope.

 

Uranus in the Second House 

Uranus is the first planet beyond Saturn's orbit and outside the boundary of the visible solar system.  It symbolizes breaking through barriers via originality, inventiveness, and progressive ideas.  Uranus reveals where we can express our novelty and uniqueness. 

With a second house Uranus, you may earn money through matters related to computers, technology, inventions, or electronic devices.  Your capacity for objective, impartial, or abstract thinking can lead to success in fields such as academics, research, the sciences, psychiatry, musical composition, or the law.  You may possess a special talent that makes you "one of a kind."  Some with this position make a living through highly creative, novel, or unique lines of work.  You may prefer to set up your own business in which you define the rules and generate your own schedule.  Money might be earned through New Age or avant-garde endeavors such as astrology, Reiki, alternative medicine, and so on.  Uranus is also linked to aviation, aeronautics, and anything to do with the heavens.  You value your independence, and you like to follow your own path in financial matters.

  

Uranus in Gemini

You belong to a generation of progressive and original thinkers.  Some members of your group will be responsible for major scientific and technological breakthroughs.  Others will make their mark pursuing humanitarian causes or defending the rights and civil liberties of others.

 

Neptune in the Sixth House

Neptune is the ancient god of the oceans, which are fluid, without form, and boundless.  It dissolves the limitations set up by Saturn.  This planet symbolizes all that is cloudy, nebulous, dreamlike, mystical, or illusory.  Neptune represents compassion, intuition, empathy, sacrifice, and spiritual development.  The placement of Neptune reveals where we may care for others, pursue our ideals, and be at one with the universe.

With Neptune in the sixth house, you are likely to have a strong desire to be of service to humanity and to help those who are disadvantaged or who have suffered misfortune.  In your daily work, you will need to draw on your intuitive faculties and creative imagination.  You may have an interest in art, literature, film, photography, music, dance, science, religion, healing, spirituality, astrology, psychic phenomena, the occult, or in any field related to entertainment and illusion.  Some with this placement find themselves working in hospitals, prisons, libraries, museums, religious settings, large institutions, or places of seclusion or confinement.  If Neptune is involved in stressful aspects, psychological difficulties can interfere with your ability to work.

 

Neptune in Libra

Neptune in Libra often indicates idealism about partnerships and close relationships.  This position of Neptune reinforces any talent for art, music, song, creative writing, counseling, psychology, the law, or politics elsewhere in the chart.

 

Pluto in the Fourth House 

Pluto is the ancient god of the underworld who ruled the realm of death and darkness.  It represents immense power, transformation, radical change, renewal, and rebirth.  The placement of Pluto reveals where we express our needs for control and regeneration. 

With Pluto in the fourth house, you have a strong appreciation of history, tradition, and your own heredity and family background.  There is a powerful need to lay a solid foundation for your career development.  An interest in psychology, inner emotional life, and unconscious processes is common.  You have intense family ties, but oftentimes your career will take you a significant distance (physically or psychologically) from your place of origin.

 

Pluto in Leo

Pluto in Leo enhances leadership ability and any creative, artistic, or dramatic tendencies elsewhere in the chart.

 

North Node in Gemini

The Moon's North Node reveals areas of potential for growth.

In Gemini, the Moon's North Node advises you to develop your ability to communicate and to establish meaningful lasting relationships.  You should avoid intellectual snobbery such as using big words and technical jargon simply to impress others without establishing genuine personal contact.  You need to learn to honor your commitments and keep your promises.  Your word is closely tied to your reputation, and you must avoid playing fast and loose with the truth.  You probably enjoy travel and higher education.  Your natural facility with words may indicate a talent for teaching, writing, speaking, singing, acting, sales, and the like.  Physical agility and manual dexterity are common.

 

North Node in the First House 

In the first house, the Moon's Node suggests that you learn to exercise initiative and to be appropriately self-assertive.  Following the crowd or giving in to peer pressure can deflect you from pursuing your own path and discovering your true self.  One of your challenges is to develop a healthy self-esteem and to avoid the pitfalls of narcissism, entitlement, and self-indulgence.  In the words of Shakespeare, "to thine own self be true."

 

Balance of Elements and Modalities

 

Abundant Fire

Keywords: ardent, creative, intuitive, aspiring, enthusiastic, inspirational, impulsive, spirited, future-oriented, energetic, passionate, self-confident.

An abundance of fire in a chart correlates with the Jungian function of intuition.  You are able to perceive, unconsciously or intuitively, what is possible or likely to occur as a situation unfolds.  From the data that you gather, you generate abstract possibilities regarding future trends.  You readily perceive the underlying meaning and motivation of other people's actions.  A pioneering, enthusiastic and enterprising spirit accompanies this intuitive perceptiveness.  Fire wants to shine, to inspire and uplift others, to convey hope and encouragement -- to make its mark on the world in a grand, exciting, and stimulating manner. 

You are good at finding new ways to do things, and others look to your leadership in launching new projects.  You love challenges, especially when they prompt you into energetic activity that promotes your own interests.  You see things in broad perspective with an awareness of the future implications of current actions.  Unless the element earth is strong in your chart, a certain impracticality is one of your shortcomings and you will need to work on taking proper care of your body and your material and financial concerns.  There is some risk of jumping to conclusions rather than carefully weighing the facts to come to a conclusion.

Introverted intuitives direct their attention inward and are often regarded as eccentric dreamers.  They gravitate toward careers that utilize their visionary, psychic, mystical, forecasting, or prophetic abilities.

Extraverted intuitives put their intuitive flashes of insight to more practical purposes.  They pursue careers where they can act as creators, innovators, pioneers, inventors, promoters, speculators, adventurers, or revolutionaries.  They thrive on novelty and excitement and tend to be weak at doing routine tasks and following through.  Their highly developed "sixth sense" and accurate hunches can make them successful as leaders, motivators, entrepreneurs, or investors.  They make quintessential power-politicians.

Many creative professionals are highly intuitive.  Examples include writers, architects, research scientists, gifted teachers, theologians, artists, musicians, psychiatrists, and neurologists.  An abundance of fire (intuition) has also been reported in the charts of Protestant clergy and indicates an energetic expression of their feelings and ideals.

 

Abundant Cardinal 

Keywords: pioneering, assertive, initiating, authoritative, constructive, action-oriented

Many planets in cardinal signs suggest a career that meets your need for self-assertion, inspiration, and independent action.  You are a go-getter with tremendous initiative and leadership potential, but you sometimes fail to follow through on the good ideas that you so easily generate.  Others appreciate your outgoing and sociable style, and look to you for leadership in initiating new projects and coming up with new ideas.  You like to make decisions for yourself, and the strength of your personality gives you natural executive ability.  There is potential for success in running your own enterprise.  You are comfortable being in charge and letting the buck stop with you.

 

Abundant Endings

Keywords: sensitive, caring, psychological, probing, insightful, healing, compassionate, private, committed, musical, artistic, spiritual, attuned to the mysteries of life and death

Many planets in houses 4, 8, or 12 suggest a career that meets the need for emotional involvement, caring, and sensitivity toward others.  Such a career often deals with matters that are private, subconscious, personal, psychological, spiritual, or related to serving the needs of humanity.  You have a strong desire to understand the hidden motivations of people and the underlying meanings of situations or events.  You are likely to be highly receptive, intuitive, concerned, and empathic.

This occurs frequently in the charts of those who work closely or intimately with others (e.g., counselors, therapists, etc.) and those who seek to master a topic in depth (e.g., scientists, researchers, analysts, etc.).  It is common in the charts of singers and composers whose music touches us deeply, and also among writers and filmmakers of psychological masterpieces.

 

Abundant Cadent

Keywords: flexible, adaptable, transitional, mental, clever, assimilating, idea-oriented

A preponderance of planets in the cadent houses (3, 6, 9, and 12) suggests versatility, adaptability, and intellectual interests.  You are likely to enjoy experimentation, study, new learning, and mental activity.  There is often a talent for teaching or otherwise conveying ideas to others.  You may also have an ability to manage and organize large amounts of data.  An ideal career would satisfy your need for mental stimulation and continued learning throughout your life.

Some occupations associated with abundant cadency include scientist, researcher, bacteriologist, technical writer, computer programmer, data processor, teacher, counselor, novelist, and editor.

 

Planets in Aspect

 

The aspect descriptions below are arranged in order of "strength," which is a measure of whether the aspect is major (stronger) or minor (weaker) and how close the planets are to being at exactly the angle specified by the aspect.  The closer the aspect is to exact, the stronger its influence is likely to be.  However, if the planets involved in the aspect are strongly emphasized in your chart, then even a weak aspect between them can be quite significant.

  

Sun square Midheaven  (Strength:  6.81)

The Sun closely aspecting the Midheaven denotes ambition and a desire to achieve a position that affords prominence, power, or social recognition.  You may be interested in politics or the social sciences.  Many with this placement prefer to be their own boss or to have a great deal of autonomy and independence on the job.  You are likely to have executive or leadership ability, and others will respect your knowledge, expertise, and authority.  Your relationship with your father is likely to have an important bearing on your choice of career.  Modesty is not likely to be one of your virtues, and you should avoid arrogance and narcissistic preoccupation with yourself. 

Some with this position choose an occupation in which they can shine or enlighten others, either literally through lighting or electronics, or figuratively through endeavors like teaching, psychotherapy, entertainment, comedy, illustration, photography, higher education, scientific research, spiritual studies, mentoring, or other forms of increasing awareness.  Through its rulership of Leo, the Sun may indicate an interest in careers involving creative self-expression, athletics, the performing arts, fun, recreation, speculative investing, banking, gold, jewelry, or work related to children.  There is a good possibility of some type of public honor or acknowledgment for your work.

  

Moon square Neptune  (Strength:  6.31)

Moon/Neptune contacts indicate emotional sensitivity, creativity, heightened intuition, and a vivid imagination.  You may have musical, artistic, poetic, or literary talent.  There is often an interest in the hidden aspects of reality, divination, spiritual matters, healing, alternative medicine, psychology, social work, and the underlying or unconscious motivations of human beings.  This aspect is common, for example, in the charts of psychiatrists and their patients.  Your easy-going personality conceals a burning ambition to achieve something great or outstanding.  You will need regular periods of respite, solitude, or meditation to regroup your forces as you seek to make your mark on the world.  There may be a talent for film, acting, dance, fashion, sculpting, design, food preparation, speculative investing, legal or political strategizing, theoretical speculation, or other creative endeavors.  A fondness for travel abroad is often present.

Stressful Moon/Neptune contacts indicate a tendency toward gullibility, discontent, disillusion, excessive perfectionism, intrigue, abuse of substances, or involvement in scandal.  There is some risk of deception with this aspect, and you should avoid any kind of dishonest or shady dealings.  You are prone to play the martyr in close relationships; often sacrificing your own legitimate needs simply to maintain an unhealthy relationship. In extreme cases, there is a tendency to engage in fanciful and impractical thinking that borders on self-delusion.

 

Mercury trine Jupiter  (Strength:  4.80)

Jupiter expands the mental acuity, industry, and the verbal and academic skills of Mercury.  You tend to be easy-going, non-demonstrative, and soft-spoken.  Your interests lean toward artistic or intellectual matters, and you have a capacity for intuitive insight.  Your career may involve you in religion, the legal system, art, literature, music, journalism, broadcasting, or philanthropic activities.  There is often a talent for language and communication that can be put to use in fields as diverse as teaching, translating, musical composition, song writing, or hosting a talk show.  If you are athletically inclined, your agility and capacity for rapid movement are great assets.

 

Mars trine Saturn  (Strength:  4.43)

Mars favorably aspecting Saturn suggests self-discipline and the ability to concentrate your energies on a desired goal.  Mars/Saturn contacts indicate a capacity for hard work, endurance, discipline, and self-denial as a result of having to confront more than average difficulty, hardship, or deprivation during your development.  This generally increases your self-reliance so that you are able to work well in situations that call for courage, risk-taking, or dealing with rough or hazardous aspects of life.  The orderliness of Saturn tempers the impulsive, assertive energy of Mars and makes it available for productive use.  You would benefit from engaging in some form of disciplined physical activity on a regular basis.  Many with this aspect enjoy working in the building or construction industry.  When used constructively, this energy can be channeled into significant athletic accomplishments, or may lead to success in any field that requires physical exertion or the disciplined use of force.  This aspect is common in charts of money managers, chemists, psychologists, inventors, machinists, firefighters, and government workers.

 

Pluto square Ascendant  (Strength:  4.28)

You are an emotionally intense person who wants to assume power and radically change your environment.  Others may regard you as a bit dictatorial.  There is usually an interest in matters of birth, death, healing, transformation, and regeneration.  You have a capacity to eliminate that which is useless and outworn to make way for new growth and development.  Some with this aspect are drawn to investigate matters that are hidden, secret, psychic, occult, or paranormal.  Pluto also gives an awareness of the darker side of human nature.  In extreme cases, your emotional intensity and vulnerability may cause you to take extreme positions or to engage in manipulative, paranoid, or ruthless behavior.

 

Neptune inconjunct Ascendant  (Strength:  3.18) 

With Neptune closely aspecting the Ascendant, you may be a master illusionist able to cast a spell over the masses.  Others are likely to see you as attractive, alluring, or glamorous.  You are attuned to hidden undercurrents and subtle nuances of meaning.  There is often an interest in poetry, imagery, dreams, art, music, dance, literature, speculative theorizing, creative writing, mystery, magic, astrology, theology, and spiritual or occult subjects.  Your career may involve filmmaking, photography, acting, singing, drama, stage performance, or other creative activities.  Neptune is also connected with oil, gas, liquids, alcohol and drugs, chemicals, medicines, pharmaceuticals, long journeys, and the sea.

Many with this position seek to render some type of service to those who are ill, disadvantaged, or confined to hospitals or institutions.  This is an excellent position for physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, hypnotists, priests, nuns, clergy, and others who desire to better the lot of humankind.  You are highly intuitive and can use your accurate hunches to invest money wisely.  Time spent in meditation or quiet contemplation is important to your well-being.  A fondness for animals is often in evidence.  In afflicted charts, this aspect cautions you to avoid any type of scandalous, deceptive, or illicit behavior.

 

Moon inconjunct Pluto  (Strength:  2.79) 

Moon/Pluto aspects lend great intensity to your emotional life and may prompt you to champion causes, or to assume extreme or fanatical positions.  You have a strong interest in understanding what motivates people; and you may be drawn to psychology, medicine, or any of the healing arts.  There is an interest in all that is secret or mysterious, often with a corresponding talent for research or investigation.  You have good intuitive abilities and may even be psychic.  A love of power, freedom, travel, and adventure is common.

 

Venus square Uranus  (Strength:  2.26) 

Venus aspecting Uranus increases your sensitivity and love of beauty.  There is often an unusual, even eccentric, cast to your affections and emotional life.  Your originality, inventiveness, and non-traditional interests are an important aspect of your work.  There may be an interest in New Age topics or alternative methods of counseling or therapy.  You are likely to be popular, witty, humorous, romantic, and charming -- but a bit excitable and restless.  There is often a talent for the arts, music, literature, the theater, and the entertainment industry.  If Mars is strong, you could do well working with metals in some way.  A major risk of this aspect is a tendency to live on the wild side, especially in your love life.  Sudden romantic attachments and subsequent breakups can distract you from your career path.  You must choose your associates carefully and avoid taking reckless or foolish risks.

Stressful Venus/Uranus aspects tend to make you touchy, willful, stubborn, and high-strung.  Some with this aspect develop emotional problems.  You may persist in a wrong-headed or unreasonable course of action simply because you feel a need to do it your way out of some extreme notion about personal independence.  You may be overly sensitive to rejection, and there is a risk of getting into difficulty because of an unconventional sexual life.  Sudden disruptions in romance can interfere with the smooth progression of your career.

 

Sun sextile Uranus  (Strength:  1.93)

Your creative originality and inventiveness are likely to make you shine, and others may seek to emulate your unique abilities.  Sun/Uranus aspects increase your zeal, willfulness, independence of thought, and your belief in the value of your own opinions.  Others see you as standing for some definite cause, and they tend to accept your authority and follow your leadership. Uranus symbolizes human freedom and humanitarian ideals, and its connection with your Sun gives a strong sense of personal liberty and a desire to defend the rights of others.  You probably have a dramatic flair and a compelling manner of expressing your ideas.  Uranus typically indicates an unconventional and gifted intellect, scientific or technological interests, iconoclasm, and a streak of rebelliousness and eccentricity.  An interest in unusual or unexplained phenomena is not uncommon.

You need a career that allows you to march to the beat of your own drum, without undue interference from others.  This aspect is frequent in the charts of innovative thinkers, literary figures, scientists, teachers, educators, politicians, statesmen, maverick leaders, rock musicians, civil rights activists, military generals, astronauts, civil servants, and those who pursue unconventional or groundbreaking careers.  You are truly a horse of a different color.

 

Mars trine Jupiter  (Strength:  1.85)

The energy of Mars combines with the expansiveness of Jupiter to increase your enthusiasm, liveliness, and optimism.  You are likely to be pioneering and adventurous, and you probably enjoy travel, flying, the outdoors, sports, vigorous exercise, and other Jupiter-ruled pursuits.  Often there is an interest in philosophical, legal, religious, theological, scientific, or political matters.  You enjoy learning about something and then spreading the word to others.  This can lead to success in broadcasting, teaching, the travel industry, promoting, propaganda, publicity, or advertising.  You like to display your talent before others.  There may also be talent for Mars-ruled occupations that require courage, energy and risk-taking (e.g., police, military, etc.), or that involve the use of fire, explosives, weapons, or instruments that penetrate the body (e.g., surgery, acupuncture, etc.).  Harmonious Mars/Jupiter aspects are a marker of worldly comfort and financial success.

 

Mercury sesquiquadrate Pluto  (Strength:  1.08)

Mercury/Pluto aspects lend an intense, driven, obsessional, and at times secretive, quality to your thinking.  Your mind is able to bypass verbalized pigeonholing and penetrate directly into subconscious or hidden aspects of reality.  You may be a fierce perfectionist who meticulously meets any intellectual challenge.  The Pluto emphasis indicates a deep understanding of the more desperate and violent aspects of human existence.  You would do well at any type of investigative, research, diagnostic, or detective work.  Matters related to control, power, money, sexuality, death, hidden causes, psychic phenomena, and the unconscious mind fascinate you.  These interests could lead to such varied careers as politician, banker, money manager, physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, healer, investigative reporter, prosecuting attorney, child advocate, chemist, medical researcher, astrologer, or occultist.  An interest in aviation and travel is not uncommon.  Stressful Mercury/Pluto aspects sometimes indicate an overvaluation of your own opinions and a violent temper.

 

THE SATURN CYCLE: YOUR CAREER PEAKS AND VALLEYS

Our careers undergo cyclic changes that parallel the movement of Saturn through the birth chart.  The 29-1/2 year Saturn cycle can be divided into four 7-1/3-year quarter cycles.  As Saturn crosses the IC at the bottom of the chart, we begin to ride the wave upward from a period of subjective preoccupation and worldly obscurity to a new cycle of vocational growth.  During the first and second quarters, which last just under 15 years, we establish, build, and develop our new career directions.  When Saturn then crosses the MC at the top of the chart, we reach a career peak and consolidate our gains.  We are now on the downward slope of the wave (the third and fourth quarters of this Saturn cycle).  About seven years after Saturn conjoins the MC, we go through another period of intense vocational activity, just as Saturn is crossing into the final quarter, which is a seven-year stretch of relative obscurity, inner reflection and reassessment.  We then start a new 29-1/2 year career cycle as Saturn again crosses the IC.  The section below gives specific details based on a horoscope cast for your date, time, and place of birth. 

In 1940, Grant Lewi published his groundbreaking analysis of Saturn's influence on career.  Saturn takes about 29-1/2 years to complete a journey around the zodiac.  During the time when Saturn crosses the 4th house cusp or IC (the "bottommost" or "darkest" point in the horoscope), Lewi noted that people "either fade completely from the picture, or take a new start in life, depending on their age and other considerations" in the chart.  This is similar to a New Moon, a time of darkness and new beginnings. 

During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through CANCER are AUGUST 1973 - JUNE 1976, then JUNE 2003 - JULY 2005, and finally JULY 2032 - MAY 2035.  At some point during these years Saturn will cross your IC, marking the end stages of a period of vocational obscurity.  Saturn's passage through the sign at the bottom of your chart SIGNALS A NEW BEGINNING OR A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN YOUR CAREER.

Astrologer Don Jacobs further elaborated Lewi's findings.  According to Jacobs, the first quarter cycle (the 7-1/3-years when Saturn is traveling through roughly the fourth, fifth, and sixth houses as it approaches a square to the Midheaven) is a time of career "building."  During this first phase we are establishing a new career or laying the foundations for a new direction in our current occupation.  Jacobs calls the second quarter cycle (the next 7-1/3-years, beginning when Saturn squares the Midheaven to transit roughly the seventh, eighth, and ninth houses) the period of "triumph" when the efforts of the period of building are starting to pay off. 

About 14 1/2 years after crossing the IC or fourth house cusp, Saturn reaches the Midheaven, the "highest" and "brightest" point of the horoscope.  This is similar to a Full Moon and marks a peak in our career development.  IN YOUR CHART, A CAREER PEAK WILL OCCUR WHEN SATURN PASSES THROUGH CAPRICORN, the sign on your Midheaven.  During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through CAPRICORN are FEBRUARY 1988 - FEBRUARY 1991, then from DECEMBER 2017 - DECEMBER 2020, and finally JANUARY 2047 - JANUARY 2050.  These years are a time of achievement, accomplishment, harvest, recognition, and the assumption of new responsibilities.  You reap the rewards of all the work you have done for the past fourteen years.  However, if you have cut corners or prepared badly, the time has now come to pay the piper. 

After passing the Midheaven, Saturn goes through a roughly 7-1/3-year period when it transits the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth houses (the third quarter cycle) as it approaches a square to the Midheaven.  Jacobs calls this the period of "coasting" when we enjoy the fruits of our career success at the Midheaven.  The final 7-1/3-year period commences with Saturn's square to the Midheaven and continues as it transits the first, second, and third houses.  Jacobs calls this the period of "obscurity" when we become self-absorbed and directed inward, contemplating our lives and thinking about future possibilities.  This subjective, inner period ends when Saturn again crosses the IC and begins a new cycle.

  

Prominent Chart Factors

 

THE MOST ACTIVE PLANETS, SIGNS, & HOUSES

The following section lists the most prominent or active planets, points (Ascendant and Midheaven), signs, and houses in your horoscope. Because the houses are determined by the exact time of birth, dominant houses are not calculated for charts with unknown birth times. You naturally tend to express the energy and symbolism of these planets, signs, and houses in most aspects of your life, including your vocation.  The rating system used here is based on the number and closeness of the aspects formed by each of the planets and points.

The dominant planets and points (Ascendant, Midheaven) reveal your basic drives and natural aptitudes that can be developed for their career potential.  Below are descriptions of the planets and points that are most active in your horoscope.

 

Ascendant Dominant  (Strength:  19.17)

The Ascendant, the point of the zodiac that is coming up on the eastern horizon at your time of birth, represents how you present yourself to others as a physical and social being.  A strong Ascendant emphasizes the need to use the force of your personality, your physical abilities, and your personal attractiveness in the career arena.  Most likely you are a doer who enjoys being in the heat of battle, figuratively or literally.  Your strong sense of personal identity gives you a charismatic aura that allows you to relate well with others.  You enjoy the use of your body and could do well in occupations that require strength, endurance, and physical stamina.  Leadership ability, quick responsiveness, and rapid decision-making are common.  Typical careers reflected in a prominent Ascendant include athlete, model, actor, costume designer, dancer, leader, pioneer, politician, receptionist, physical therapist, manual laborer - any field that involves physical activity, self-projection, and personable engagement with others.  With such an active Ascendant, you should pay special attention to the career implications of your ascending sign.

 

Moon Dominant  (Strength:  17.91) 

The Moon symbolizes emotions, moods, and instinctive behaviors.  You are likely to be highly intuitive, nurturing, caring, empathic, and sensitive to public moods and tastes.  You can profit from your awareness of the needs and desires of the public.  You have a strong appreciation of history and of the influence of the past on present and future behavior.  You value tradition and may wish to preserve historical treasures for future generations.  You also enjoy working with people and could do well in fields that take care of the emotional, physical, or developmental needs of others.  You have an intuitive feel for what the public needs or desires. 

Teachers, nurses, cooks, midwives, counselors, psychologists, social workers, environmentalists, preservationists, market researchers, healers, psychotherapists, veterinarians, physicians, and personnel workers often have a prominent Moon in their charts.  Musical interest and/or ability are frequent.  The Moon is connected to the tides and the seas, and you might be interested in a career in the navy or the maritime trades.  An active Moon also suggests a fondness for travel and communication.  It is also common in the charts of those who deal with the public or whose work appeals especially to women.  The Gauquelin research found a strong Moon in charts of politicians and successful writers. 

If the Moon forms many stressful aspects, you may suffer from a fear of competition and a tendency toward shyness or emotional dependency.  To achieve success, you may need to master an inclination to be overly sensitive to the moods and feelings of others.

 

Neptune Dominant  (Strength:  13.26)

Neptune signifies matters that are dreamy, imaginative, nebulous, spiritual, speculative, theoretical, psychic, or otherworldly.  A prominent Neptune suggests that you are highly intuitive, idealistic, creative, compassionate, and sensitive.  There is a strong appreciation of and often a talent for music, the fine arts, dance, theater, performing, creative writing, poetry, literature, fiction, illusion, magic, mythology, advertising, promotions, photography, cinema, and related endeavors.  You may prefer a career that allows for a relatively unstructured workweek. 

The compassionate side of Neptune may confer an interest in medicine, nursing, psychiatry, psychology, research, health care, veterinary medicine, counseling, spirituality, meditation, astrology, theology, religious vocations, or any field that serves the needs of others or benefits human welfare.  Neptune is also linked to work involving water, oil, gases, chemicals, drugs, or liquids.  This planet commonly indicates a fondness for travel and is connected with the maritime trades.  People with an active Neptune often like to work in places that are quiet, secluded, or removed from normal society; for example, libraries, theaters, museums, art studios, universities, hospitals, laboratories, prisons, ashrams, monasteries, convents, seminaries, preserves, and so on. 

If Neptune is involved in many stressful aspects, you will need to guard against deception, distortion, gullibility, and unrealistic expectations in the career arena.  Avoid any kind of illicit behavior, and be especially careful with alcohol and drugs.

  

THE MOST ACTIVE SIGNS

The signs of the zodiac indicate basic motivations, preferences, attitudes, and reaction patterns.  Below is a list of the most active signs in your horoscope in descending order of their dominance in your chart.

 

Capricorn Dominant  (Strength:  103.98)

Key Phrases:  I use, I control, I strive, I organize 

Capricorn is cautious, pragmatic, ambitious, scrupulous, disciplined, conservative, dependable, reserved, organized, and hardworking.  Individuals with and active Capricorn want to rise to the top and often seek positions of leadership, power, authority, honor, control, and responsibility.  They can do well at business, administration, banking, bureaucracy, government, or at one of the traditional professions, which satisfy their need for status, command, and respect in their community.  They tend to be responsible and serious and may strike others as shy, pessimistic, or aloof.  Despite their serious streak, Capricorn persons have a good sense of humor and may possess comedic talent. Capricorn's capacity for persistent effort, attention to detail, and systematic methodology can lead to success in one of the applied sciences. 

Capricorn's planet, Saturn, governs structure, time, tradition, self-discipline, caution, limits, efficiency, durability, antiquity, the reality principle, loneliness, hard work, guilt, and punishment.  Capricorn needs security and respects authority, tradition, and the laws of society. With Capricorn strong, you could excel in any career that demands "head over heart" type of thinking.  Because Capricorn governs the skin, bones, knees, and teeth, doctors with a strong Capricorn are often drawn to these areas of specialization.  Since Mars is exalted in Capricorn, a prominent Capricorn is common in charts of athletes who excel in sports that require discipline and long hours of training.

Typical Capricorn occupations include administrator, manager, boss, organizer, industrialist, engineer, dentist, orthopedist, economist, geologist, antique dealer, farmer, miner, mason, builder, construction worker, scientist, mathematician, sociologist, computer programmer, teacher, coach, political leader, supervisor, and law enforcement officer.

Aries Dominant  (Strength:  86.88)

Key Phrases:  I am, I pioneer, I assert, I lead 

Aries, the Ram, is adventurous, daring, pioneering, confident, assertive, rash, cocky, and trailblazing.  With Aries strong, you are likely to have initiative and leadership ability because of your self-directed, competitive, energetic, headstrong, and dynamic approach to life.  Aries, always a doer and shaker, enjoys action, challenge, and physical activity.  Aries does well in crisis situations and is often skilled in the management of human resources.  People with a prominent Aries are good at starting new projects and motivating others to action, but they are often weak on the follow-through. 

The hard-headed mentality of Aries' ruling planet, Mars, may give an interest in fields such as mechanics, manufacturing, carpentry, munitions, iron work, engineering, inventing, discovering, debating, sales, athletics, police, the military, EMT work, firefighting, surgery, dentistry, medicine, neurology, or fields that require penetration, the use of machines, or the directed use of force.  Aries likes to take chances, push the limit, start new projects, work freelance, act courageously, use tools and fire, wield weapons, and engage in rapid motion.  People with a strong Aries include explorers, pioneers, initiators, motivators, executives, directors, and entrepreneurs.
