Chart Specifics: Work and Career

One of the second most viewed items during an astrological reading is work, money, and the careers an individual may be good at. To see these, we look to the houses associated with the Earth signs (2nd house of money and possessions; 6th house of work and daily habits; and 10th house of professional life and career.) There are a few key rules that you must remember.
  • the 2nd house indicates the areas that we can make the most money;
  • the 6th house indicates the areas where we feel secure and comfortable;
  • the 10th house indicates the areas where we can be successful; where we can rise to the top.
We know that career choices can change and career choices can be difficult. Astrology can help us to identify the areas that come easy to us, and the areas that can be challenging.

We look to the planets in these houses to tell us what careers are best for each category. If the house has no planets, look at the house ruler.

A person once told me, "You would be very successful in the military." It is funny he told me that, because I have Mars in the 10th house. Mars rules the police, dentistry, sports, and the military (to name a few.) Of course, with Mars squaring both Mercury and Jupiter, the military as a career conflicts with my beliefs and philosophies. So, even if I would be successful, I would not be happy there.

I have Uranus and Neptune in the 2nd house, this could indicate that astrology (Uranus) or a psychic or a spiritual healer (Neptune) could be alternative sources of income. Astrology is definitely something I am interesting in learning (Uranus ruling the 3rd house, and, this blog.)

I am interested in hearing the reader's techniques for determining ideal careers via natal charts. This method has worked for me, but there are some better, more developed techniques out there. Leave them in the comment section and tell me what you guys think about my technique.

Birth and How it Works;

We all should know how birth works in a physical sense, but what about the spiritual aspects of birth?

There are actually three births you go through. Spiritual birth (up to 14 hours before physical birth), physical birth, and soul birth (up to 24 hours after physical birth)

Spiritual birth is the time when your soul begins the merging process with the body. This happens after you are prepared for a life here and have all you need.

Physical birth is of course, when the baby is pulled out of the uterus.

Soul birth, is the time when the merging process of soul and body is complete. When the "living human" as we know it, is complete. The baby is conscious about a few minutes before "soul birth."

The human body, is in essence, a design so complex that it takes up to a day for the soul to fully merge with it. We have everything we need to live our live here and to learn our lessons and achieve our destiny or purpose.

Your name is a lot more than the title you go by. Your name not only marks your expression into the outer world, but who you are. The name is subconsciously transmitted to the parents a little bit after spiritual birth has started. Ask your parents why the named you what they named you, and you may find that they really never knew; it just "sounded good." or they "liked it." In your name, what you were born with, what you came to learn, and who you are is encoded in each letter. Your birthday wasn't a coincidence, you chose the wave of souls you wished to incarnate with. They have very similar lessons that you have and each member has something in common. Everybody is different, but there is something about each generation that everyone in it shares. Take a look at the generation today, and see the commonalities.

Astrology and numerology are different ways to decode the complex ciphers of the name and birth details. Numerology decodes the name and birth date, and astrology decodes the birth date, time, and place. When you get an astrological or numerological reading, you are reading what the spirits have encoded for you, and specifically for you.

Chart Specifics: Relationships

     According to a friend of mine who is a professional Vedic astrologer, the top three things that clients go to professional astrologers are:  relationships, money, and career. Most professional astrologers begin to look at these three things as the first thing they look at before even figuring out what the client wants. In a series of succession posts, I will discuss the specific areas to look for in a chart including spiritual path, relationships, jobs, money, career, natural talents.

     The first one I will discuss is relationships. Apart from money and career, this is the most diverse portion of the birth chart. Some astrologers absolutely despise this portion, but this portion interests me. There are three major things you need to look at.
  • sign, position, and aspects of the 7th house ruler.
  • planets and their aspects to the 7th house.
  • Venus/Mars.
My natal chart for visual purposes.

  The most basic thing you should look at in a chart is Venus (if you are a guy,) or Mars (if you are a girl.) This will show the general types of people they are attracted to. If in Virgo, they are attracted to analytical, hard-working partners. If in Libra, they appreciate physically attractive, balanced partners. Mine is in Gemini, so I am attracted to intelligent, witty, social girls. (I generally agree with that.)

The 7th house ruler and aspects are very important in this. They show, even deeper, what kinds of people you may attract/are attracted to. The planets in the 7th house show the partners/circumstances you are promised. Let us take all these ideas and synthesize them. (This also assumes you have a basic knowledge of the planets in the houses as well.)
  • secure, emotional [Cancer] relationships are a major part of my life. Without a partner in my life, I feel lost and incomplete. [Sun in the 7th house] I require communication in a relationship and talkative, intelligent partners are greatly favored. [Relationships Ruler, Mercury in the 7th]
  • I have been promised a bright, talkative, beautiful partner who may have a temper. [Sun, Mercury, Venus in the 7th house. Venus square Mars]
Timing relationships can involve the outer planets, your relationships ruler, and your chart ruler. If your 1st house ruler is conjunct your 7th house ruler in the 6th house, You may meet someone through work OR you may meet someone who performs performs duties to you.

The asteroid Juno indicates the kind of partner you will relate to the best. In Sagittarius, I relate to those with Sagittarian qualities.

The next 'Chart Specifics' I will look at is spiritual path. This one is a more direct and there are still many signs.
