View Full Version : What should I do with my life?
05-05-2011, 08:16 PM
I feel very restless right now and unsatisfied with what I am currently doing for work. I've been here 4 years and I don't really see myself here long term but I have no idea what else I could/should be doing. I feel bored and there is a lot of monotony. Can anyone see things that maybe I am missing? Thanks so much. Natal attached!

Without transits at the very least, it is a bit hard to work with your chart. However, I notice your Moon in gemini which closely opposes your Uranus in Sag in the 10th house. This is quite a moody, changeable, on & off kind of placement, and you may be prone to changing things in your life just to offset boredom. There is a lot of energy/tension within this opposition, and you may have developed a habit of making changes in your outside world as a way of dealing with this energy. Both Moon and Uranus widely square your Pisces Sun, so the tension within you may take its toll in various ways. Do you have any kind of anxiety? I ask this because the t-square I mentioned - although a bit wide in orb - has been found in the charts of people who have become quite paralysed by anxiety - which is not to say that this is so for you!!!
You haven't said what kind of work you currently do. Were you to do this then this would eliminate this from suggestions others may make. I can only make some generalised suggestions.
Uranus is in your 10th house, so restlessness in your work is almost a given. You need to work independently - somewhere you can do your own thing without having to answer directly to another. Travel would suit you - your 10th house ruler is in the 9th house. Anything which is to do with the law, or justice, or helping the under-priveleged would work for you. But you must have freedom to move around, as well as the ability to organise your work day yourself, in a way which suits you.

Thanks for your response. I will post a chart with transits when I get into work. I have a Mac at home and I don't have photo editing software to take out my personal info, etc.. or maybe I just haven't figured it out yet hehe.
I work as a headhunter for legal and compliance within financial services. You kind of hit the nail on the head with saying that I work best independently when I don't have to answer to anyone, etc. I built this practice group from scratch and have added team members and now my boss is having weekly meetings with me and is constantly up my @ss about what is going on with my group. Since he's been doing that I think it has turned me off to this job causing me to lose interest and if you lose interest in this business there goes your money because it's commission based. Also, I don't really get off on speaking to high power finance people. I find them to be arrogant and pompous and that's not me at all.
It's funny that you mention travel because my DREAM would be to travel for a living. When out of college I worked for a large publishing company and they had a travel division. I kept my eyes peeled for open jobs in that group but they rarely opened up (wonder why haha) so I ended up getting frustrated because I didn't want to stare at paper all day and did the recruiting thing. Looking back on my adult life my favorite part was when I backpacked Europe. Now I'm nostalgic haha!
I am very interested in law or anything to do with justice. I have seen every Criminal Minds, Law and Order (SVU, Criminal Intent and the original), Bones, CSI.. all of those shows a million times. It's basically all that I watch. I always joke that I should become a Private Eye because I pay attention to every detail of a person's behavioral pattern and I like solving mysteries. When I was a kid my favorite game was Clue.
I am a pretty friendly person and from what I gather I'm generally well-liked (I work with mostly men and they all joke with me like I'm one of the guys so I figure if they treat me like that then I'm "in"). I just have no clue what I should be doing. I just feel in my gut that this isn't it. It certainly has given me some amazing tools that I will take with me and I have learned A LOT about myself from doing this job. My temper has definitely gotten a lot better because I've learned that you can't have outbursts and they are counter-productive. I've also learned a lot about people and their motives to do things. This job has been a lot of psychology and that was kind of cool at first. Just tired of sitting in the same room EVERY DAY...borrrrrrrring!
Anxiety? Yes! Not like super bad where I'm on Xanax or other pills every day, but I am a very high strung person and I worry constantly about basically everything. I go to a therapist every week and she helps me deal with my life, so that's helped a lot. No medication though. I think I deal with my anxiety by constantly moving around and I also think my dog is anxious because of my anxious energy :( I like to drink, but I've learned to limit that to once a week because I don't like waking up anxious. After a night of drinking I always feel like I did something horrible even if I didn't. I also wake up really early and can't sleep after drinking.
