Career Choice?


I am at a loss in regards to choosing a career. Right now I am in college taking care of my general education requirements, but when those are all taken care of I won't have any direction to go in. Like most people, I don't have the money to spend on all the classes I just simply feel like taking.

I do have some knowledge of astrology....but after looking at some of the threads on here I could not help but notice when someone suggested one of the career paths they considered that's all the answers ever focused on. So I am intentionally leaving out my ideas about my chart's direction so that I may get less focused answers.

Thanks much if you help!

[EDIT: Here's my natal chart!]


[EDIT:I skim the rules to every seems that it wasn't such a good idea here. Can I blame the planets in the 8th house? I kid, I kid....onto my point....I've considered a small handful of careers: teaching [at the collegiate level, I hate kids/people my age], a paranormal researcher [but how would I make money?], owning a store devoted to the Earth religions and New Age people [which is highly appealing, but I'm terrible with math...], or I pull a Ron Hubbard or Joseph Smith and create a religion MUHAHAHAHA---....>.>....<.<....but you didn't hear that.]

I've read Noel Tyl's vocational analysis through the Midheaven extension process, and that has only led me to see how just about every planet hearkens back to a couple of signs/planets....


Here's the third comment >.>....

I want to live comfortably off the money I earn, and be happy in what I'm doing....but who wouldn't?

There's absolutely no way that I can live with either one of my parents for more than a few years. While I owe them much, I need to live a life of my own...
If you had some knowledge of Astrology, you should have contributed and said what it was you were hoping to do careerwise, as this would give othes a starting point to comment on...

I'm a modern astrologer that uses Equal house system.
You have calculated your chart using the default on of placidus and I use Equal House system and am a modern astrologer. Lots of people that come into Astrology get their free charts calculated at and the default ‘house system’ used is Placidus and think that’s just the norm and all that there is……..BUT that is just the tip of the iceberg. You can change the default on in Extended Chart selection to Equal house and a few more.

Throughout the forums but mainly in natal astrology there are two main branches Placidus (unequal size houses) v Equal House (whereby each house is same size) but lots more……. For more information on these go here. has Free six month transit forecaster

My way of helping newbies is for them to do more research and learning rather than just ‘drop the answer in your lap’ and not necessarily to provide professional readings and forecast future events.
Having a Sagittarius MC is the sign of the teacher and I do indeed teach astrology. This forum is a wonderful community of all mixed levels. So instead of dropping the answer in your lap I may provide links and dangle carrots in the hope that if you are sincerely interested enough you will do the research and enlighten yourself….

Your Stellium of planets in Capricorn in 8th house Equal House, is significant, Capricorn is ambitious hard working, practical, good in business but all that 8th house matters of Scorpio. Working behind the scenes with insurances, inheritances, prob make good solicitor dealing with probate matters

Jupiter in late 1st conj 2nd cusp, suggests you will feel lucky and always be able to earn your own income

Now looking at MC in Aquarius and 3more planets in 10th house of Capricorn. Aquarius wants freedom, independence and does things in different, unsual ways, in detached talkative, sociable ways. Uranus placed in 8th house, again goods of the deceased,joint finances.
Equal house doesn't use intercepted house and has different 4th & 10th house cusps, making each house cusp same as Asc..

Now 2nd house cusp (how you earn your money) of Cancer = family matters again, good divorce, family childrens solicitor. Pluto on 6th house cusp and pluto deposited there. Will wants something demanding, intense and analytical, great for detective work, research, working behind the scenes.

Ruler of 7th in 1st/affecting 2nd you could be in business with partner, earn money connected to Cancerian matters again.

Hopes this helps. How about some input??

Since you have a strong 10th house and a lot of Caprcorn energy, here are some careers that fit the 10th house and Capricorn:
traffic warden, executive, engineer, osteopath, dentist

Since you have a strong 9th house, here are some 9th house-type careers:
travel representative, croupier, marketing, humorist, teacher, professor, lecturer, philosopher, lawyer, judge, interpreter, veterinarian, animal trainer, explorer, sportsman, jockey, publisher, librarian, book seller, cartographer





I decided to take a quick look at my chart through the equal house system...and with the info you presented me...the picture has become a little less hazy.

Through the equal house system my midheaven is not in Aquarius, but in Pisces. I had been working with Noel Tyl's Midheaven Extension technique to figure out a career path. It takes the sign of the midheaven and looks to the the ruling planet's position. It's a bit of a longer process than that, but that's all I really need to illustrate. Either way each of the 2 types of midheaven [Uranus, and Neptune respectively] rulers would be in the 8th house under Capricorn. Which in the Placidus system, did not contain all of the 5 planets I have in Capricorn.

The Equal house system changed a number of my house rulers. The ones that seem to be really pertinent to my question would be the 6th [now ruled by Scorpio], the 8th-because of the stellium [now ruled by Capricorn], and the 10th [by Pisces instead of Aquarius]. What I find interesting is that Mr. Pluto sextiles 3 of those planets [technically 2 if you don't think a 8 degree orb would be a strong influence] that are in his house. Pluto also squares Mercury, and quindeciles the ascendant [who is ruled by Mercury]

The importance of Cancer through Jupiter is something I really didn't look too much at, thank you for doing so.

I can say that I simply cannot work with inheritance or insurance. Both are arenas that do not promote the well-being of humanity in the broad spectrum and would not satisfy my need to help people. Also...I'm not too interested in either the money aspect [I had to take a remedial math class for college D:< I HATE MATH] nor too much with the legal systems that accompany it. Synthesizing the info...I can see my need to help people being fulfilled through research regarding the paranormal. This could probably done through ghost hunting and helping people deal with their ghosts...but how would I make money off that? It would definitely fulfill my need to do constant research, and to push my beliefs to the world [regarding the existance of ghosts]. However, I don't like the idea of charging people for something like that....
