View Full Version : Hello!

This is my first post, and I would say it's so nice to finally exchange ideas with people who are passionate about Astrology as much as I do. I hope to get to know more of you :D
Let me share quite a bit about myself. Well right now, I'm in the process of rehauling my career, and frankly, I still don't know which career I should have. I've been changing careers almost every year, and it's causing me anxiety attacks already :eek: Been doing some contemplating and I've come up with four options. They include: doctor (psychiatry), psychology professor, travel correspondent, and psychotherapist. Maybe you can help me find which of these choices is the best one for me. Am quite desperate, and I think you can all shed some light on my dilemma.
I've attached my natal chart below. You can make me your guinea pig or something... :banana:
Nice to meet you all.

with that moon in the 12th house, sun in the 4th, uranus in the 7, mars in the 2nd, and then chiron in the 1st ... the first thing that came to my mind was a family counsellor ... when i looked at your chart, i didn't read the rest of your post where you gave your list ... looks like you are right on point. perhaps the wariness of engaging in this field will be the need to look deep within yourself through that career ... a nice way to heal yourself, but a challenging road to be sure.

Since most of your planets are on the bottom (inner world) of your chart, you tend to focus on your inner world. Since more planets are in the bottom right of your chart than in other areas, you tend to use what you know about your inner world to develop relationships with others. With Uranus (friends, also rebellion) conjunct (energy is combined with) Descendant (others), you tend to want to be "friends" with others...close but not TOO close. This might make becoming a personal psychiatrist a "too close" experience for you.
Perhaps with Libra (relationships) modifying Pluto (transformation, also research) conjunct your North node (future goals) focused in the 6th house (daily work, also analysis), you could find some type of work that involved analysis of populations or demographics type of work. This would allow you to be "comfortably distant" from others while allowing your analytical abilities a place to "play"! ;)

Tim- You are right in saying that I want to make a certain distance with people, no matter how much I want to be friends with them. I think that's primarily the reason why it's a bit scary for me to venture in the field of psychiatry--too much closeness and one on one. I think this is the answer I can give to Business Voodoo, too.There always comes a point where I feel so drained by the interactions that all I want to do is crawl inside my room and never come out. Then after some time, I feel "cleansed" again, so I go out again. I guess it's a cycle. This even applies to my work. There are moments I want to work, then when I'm stressed out, I have this impulse to just get away from it all and not come back. Hence, my chronic resignations. I think your recommendation regarding population / demographic analyst is good for me and suited to my personality, although my interests really lie in psychology, science, astrology and alternative medicine.
Business Voodoo- I did think about the family counsellor thing, but growing up in a passive and chaotic family doesn't make me an exemplary consultant regarding family coherence and harmony. Or maybe I'm in denial or something? Quite confused about this.I think my Pluto and Neptune are causing quite a bit of snarls in my life lately. I still need to learn more about them, though.
I was wondering how I can integrate my need to be of service to others while using my need for analysis and study. Any suggestions?
Thanks for all your insights. I really appreciate it. :)

Just my two cents....
But it sounds to me like you really have a desire to be in some kind of healing profession, probably emotional healing, families, as you said. The problem seems to be that you aren't ready to do that. Perhaps the key is to put first things first and get some of that same kind of help for yourself? You said you had a passive and chaotic family ( I'm assuming as a child?) How can you give what you have not first received? Also, if you feel drained by one-on-one close relations with others.... you may be an emotional empath, and don't know how to deal with it. This is probably due to unhealed emotional pain that you are carrying from childhood on and haven't processed. As you get clear, you can help others get clear.
I believe if this is what you really want, the way will be made step-by-step for you to arrive at that destination. But it will be a process.
This is a great site. You can learn a lot about astrology, spirituality, and a whole lot of other odds and ends on here. I hope you stick around!

You can do psychology, science, astrology and alternative medicine from a research point of view as well. As has been suggested, you may be a "sponge" for people's feelings (which is a common feeling for someone with their Moon (home, also emotions) focused in the 12th house (spirituality) ). So getting a little analytical "distance" could help you to do a better job at processing the personality data.
Still suggesting separation,

Freedom Lover--You are probably right. I still need some healing of my own. I was just wondering which planets I should look first in determining what should be healed? A friend of mine told me I have a t-square in my chart (Mercury, Neptune and Mars). I don't know if she was accurate in that area, but if so, I'm wondering if resolving this can speed up my healing.
Tim--I would definitely take your advice into consideration. I think research would do me well, as I have Mercury in Virgo. Regarding the emotional empath thing, I was wondering how to lessen its effects. Emotional distance can be okay, but you can't avoid that for very long. I tried facing (feeling) up to the emotions, but it's draining when you have to feel so many emotions in a day. I become more introspective and self-centered-- which I try to avoid--as I tend to focus too much on myself already (NOT GOOD). :58:
It's so nice to hear your insights. Thanks for all your advice. :39:

The challenge of handling emotions is that they are always changing. The advantage in emotions always changing is they don't last for long. If you can, DEtach from your emotions and just "watch" them...without reacting. You will notice that they go away and then come back and then go away over and over again. That is because there is nothing "really" there, simply random feelings. Practice meditation and work at letting these feelings roll off you, like water over a duck's feathers. There is no easy way to handle emotions, but going THROUGH the emotions (instead of going INTO the emotions) can make things a LOT easier.
