is time for me to make a career change, but I am uncertain in what direction
to go. I either don't like or am not qualified for positions suggested
by my Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs. I've been working at a retail greenhouse
for eight spring seasons, but now I need something more long-term and
with better financial compensation. Can you point me in a new direction?
My birth data is August 19, 1970, at 11:34 am in Denver, Colorado.
You're definitely in the season of career changes. Several major
transits are stimulating a desire for new, more substantial work. What's more,
these influences aren't just about increased financial opportunity. The
planets also point toward finding a profession that utilizes your talents
and allows you to excel. But you'll have an easier time finding the perfect
profession if you widen your perspective and consider acquiring the qualifications
you'll need to create a career you will enjoy.
were born with a Sun-Mars conjunction in Leo in your Tenth House of career.
The Sun in Leo makes you vital and creative. And its placement in the
Tenth House makes it important to find work that allows you to shine.
When you’re happy at what you're doing, that joy lights up whatever it
is you're working on. Leos also like to be in charge. They are natural
born leaders, and when a Leo is empowered, their innate generosity of
spirit inspires others to be equally strong.
Mars in Leo amplifies this need to lead. Mars is the planet of ambition and
self-assertion. A Mars-Sun conjunction in Leo in the Tenth House creates
an undeniable desire to be number one. You not only want success, you
need success to satisfy your ambitions and realize your full potential.
Uranus is currently triggering that natal Sun-Mars conjunction, and that's
what's building your fire and motivating your dissatisfaction.
opposing your Mars in April of 2000, and that opposition continues until
December of this year. Uranus always stirs the pot and disturbs the status
quo. Whenever Uranus hits a planet, shift happens. Aimed at activating
your ambition, Uranus is making you hungry for something new. But you
don't have to find the perfect job tomorrow. Uranus generates excitement,
but that doesn't mean we have to hurry.
transiting Uranus also opposes your Sun starting next February, which
prolongs your professional restlessness. But I wouldn't worry. This opposition
is an invitation to reinvent yourself. It's a highly creative, potent
time filled with surprising twists and turns. Some of these surprises
could be startling revelations. Others could be amazing opportunities
to actualize your talent.
chart contains many gifts. Your natal Saturn in Taurus trines your natal
Mercury and Pluto, both conjunct in Virgo. A Mercury-Pluto conjunction
gives you a penetrating intellect and a deep, almost compulsive desire
to get to the bottom of things and solve the problem. Saturn's trine to
both Mercury and Pluto amplifies this problem solving talent as it simultaneously
bestows an eye for structure. You want to know how and why things work
and your memory for detail is amazing.
trine signals a talent for teaching. You have an innate respect for children
and would answer their questions with precision and care. Indeed, their
insatiable curiosity would mirror your own need to know.
not all. Your natal Jupiter sits on your Ascendant, giving you a jovial,
optimistic attitude and a good sense of humor. Jupiter, too, enjoys teaching.
It appreciates the value of knowledge and likes sharing its information.
But to access
these gifts, you have to overcome a difficult configuration in your birth
chart. Saturn squares your Sun-Mars conjunction, and this configuration
creates the potential to be highly critical. Leos tend to be self-conscious,
so my hunch is the brunt of your critical nature is aimed at yourself
rather than others. But Saturn square Mars often turns testy when things
don't go their way, particularly when authority figures interfere and
insist on their way.
It is possible
to work through the negative impact of this Saturn influence. But to do
so, you need to transform that angry, critical voice and release the desire
to hold a grudge. Put to positive use, Saturn squaring the Sun and Mars
gives you tremendous stamina and discipline. Instead of brooding about
the obstacles in your path, aim the power of your frustration at specific
goals. Learn how to use the potent force of Saturn square the Sun and
Mars, and you can accomplish almost anything.
transiting Jupiter moves into your Ninth House of higher education and
stays in that house for nearly a year. Jupiter's movement into the Ninth
House often signals a return to school, which is the reason I'm advising
you not to rule out gathering additional skills. While a year or two or
three may seem like an eternity at the beginning of a journey, it's only
a drop in the bucket compared to a lifetime reaping the rewards of that
a lack of qualifications limit your career choices. Right now is the perfect
time to acknowledge your ambition and stretch out into new territory.
Flex those magnificent mind muscles and explore the possibilities. What's
important is finding work that satisfies your ambition and utilizes your
