My Vocational Report

I got a Vocational Report the other day it's the Astrodienst Computer generated report by Liz Greene. It's all accurate about me apart from the occupation guesses about what work I would like to do. I thought I would share it as my Jupiter in Leo 11th wants to share everything with the group, he gets out of control sometimes Luckily he is disposited by my Sun which opposes Saturn - which has to physically restrain him at times.

Here is my chart and Report, I wish they would include the Astrological Jargon but maybe it would ruin the flow of the reading.

Career and Vocation

Make your mark through developing your skills

You care deeply about people, and are highly sensitive to their needs and their suffering. So concerned are you to be of service to others that sometimes you may feel as though your life is spent living for and through them, at work as well as in your personal life. This may cause you considerable inner frustration. You also have a powerful need for privacy, order, and the development and expression of your own skills and talents.

Your concern for the welfare of others, and your need to live a useful life, should be balanced by the nourishing of your own abilities -particularly creative talents such as writing or the visual arts, which you may need to take more seriously. You are a natural communicator and perhaps also a natural teacher, and your imaginative gifts need to be expressed through words, crafts, or skills which allow you to feel you are creating something beautiful as well as useful. You are not an aggressive personality, and may be quite shy in situations where you feel your space is being invaded by too many people. This needs to be taken into account when choosing your working environment. You need a workplace which is peaceful, orderly, and friendly. Giant companies or institutions would probably not suit you unless you have a special working relationship with one or two individuals. The helping professions might suit you better, provided you keep clear boundaries and ensure that you have enough time to pursue your own creative work independent of the needs and demands of others.

You can be very meticulous and thorough, and take pleasure in doing something carefully and well. Fields such as specialised medicine, architecture, restoration of ancient buildings, alternative healing, or scientific research could offer you the right kind of challenge and satisfy your need to engage with your subject in detail and depth. Fine craft work such as restoration of antiques, archaeological research, publishing and editing, or costume or set design might also appeal to your unique blend of a love of knowledge combined with a love of craft. You may possess more than one talent, for you have a versatile mind and love making connections between disparate areas of knowledge. When you are interested in something, you become passionately interested, and can pursue a subject to its source. Yet you can also become bored easily, and regularly need new mental challenges. You may need more than one sphere of work - two jobs, or a job and a serious hobby where you can refresh yourself through alternating between the two. But transcending your restlessness is a deep need to feel you are being of service to others, and perhaps also to something greater than yourself. If you can discover and affirm this central need to devote yourself to an inner reality which you can serve with your whole heart, the outer channels will fall into place.

Needing to feel you belong

You know that no man or woman is an island, and you feel nourished and supported by a sense of belonging and the knowledge that you are able to contribute something which benefits others in some way. Ambition in the ordinary sense is not likely to be one of your prime motivations, nor is the amassing of large amounts of money (although if it comes your way, you are likely to be generous with it, to yourself as well as to others). Nor are you especially comfortable with hierarchical structures where inequality results in others - or yourself - being exploited in any way. You need a liberal atmosphere at work, where everyone can give voice to their needs, objections, and ideas. Your direction in life needs to include the chance to express your truly democratic spirit, allowing you to meet people from all walks of life and expanding your own understanding through communication with others. You have the gift of the "common touch", and this equips you to work in many fields where you need to deal with different sorts of people. You have an instinctive sense of how to behave in any milieu, effortlessly intuiting others' requirements and expectations.

You also know how to put others at their ease. You would find it very hard to be isolated at a desk with no one to communicate with and no "team" to discuss ideas with. Most importantly, you need to feel you are part of a community, not a company. Others are inclined to trust you because you are ethical; also, you like them and they know it. Therefore you need to know that the people you work for and with are also ethical, for you tend to believe the best of people until proven wrong. This can expose you to being exploited, and the standards and ideals of the world in which you work are extremely important. Although you can be understanding and forgiving, you are not always very good at expressing yourself directly if it means discord or rejection from the group. In the most profound sense, others are your true vocation - not necessarily working one-to-one with them as a "helper" (although that might suit you), but feeling that you are part of a larger collective effort to leave the planet and the human race marginally better off than it was when you arrived.

Respect for the feelings and viewpoints of others

You pay careful attention to the feelings and ideas of others, and are unlikely to try to impose your own ideas without prior consultation. Faced with a difficult decision, you want to know what others think as a matter of course, for you are neither arrogant enough nor confident enough in your own rightness to assume that your knowledge is all there is to know. This genuine willingness to consider others' viewpoints, and the skill with which you elicit and provide information and advice, equips you to work in any liaison capacity, acting as a diplomat, peacemaker, legal representative, or strategic "power behind the throne". You could also make an excellent director of a team in whatever field your interests lie. You enjoy the lively exchange of creative ideas, provided the atmosphere is harmonious and the people agreeable. Although you are perfectly capable of acting alone, taking the initiative, and coming up with your own strategies and inspired solutions to problems, you prefer co-operation. You have the humility to know that you might be wrong and that others, even if their position is "lower", might see something you have missed; and a balanced, clear viewpoint matters more to you than proving how clever or important you are. This natural humility is devoid of pretence and false self-effacement. Others know it and are therefore willing to accept your authority without resentment.

You rarely act on impulse, but prefer careful reflection before making a decision. You also do not like to be seen as aggressive, even if you know that someone else is making a mistake; and you would rather suppress your feelings, and exercise tact to keep the atmosphere harmonious, than appear too harsh or authoritarian. This can be both a gift and a handicap. It means you can put off necessary confrontations with colleagues until you build up such a head of steam that your annoyance bursts out of you in inappropriate ways which create the very disharmony you find so distasteful. It also means you can be taken advantage of by bossier people if you cannot find the confidence to stand up for yourself. Work which involves you in direct conflict of any kind is not likely to agree with you. But work which allows you to use your diplomatic and strategic skills to win over others, and enables you to promote ideas which you believe in, will always satisfy you.

Intimations of other dimensions

You do not merely respond sensitively to others; you are them much of the time. You have a remarkable openness to the unspoken emotional atmosphere of the group, and equally to the boundless realm of the imagination. You can sometimes experience feelings, intuitions, and inspirations whose origins are not within you, but which work through you because of your receptivity to the collective psyche. This gives you the gift of expressing the values, dreams, and feelings of many people through your own creative vehicles. You have a strong sense of connection to others, and you need to retain that connection through your work. These special gifts need careful development and handling. You can easily feel overwhelmed by the flood of inner images to which you are sometimes exposed. and you can be "infected" by negative atmospheres generated by the people around you. Being in a group where the undercurrents are less than pleasant can leave you feeling exhausted and dispirited. Because you may often find yourself acting as a kind of mouthpiece for the unvoiced feelings and dreams of others, you may find deep satisfaction in an artistic sphere such as music, drama, or photography. Equally, you may be open to sudden intuitive ideas in scientific or mathematical spheres, for these, too, are part of the wealth of the collective psyche.

You need time and privacy to embed these intuitions in practical forms, and you may sometimes need to fight a kind of lethargy which makes you want to seek escape into daydreams. Hard self-discipline and the mastery of a chosen medium, artistic or scientific, can make an enormous difference to your self-confidence. If you wish to make the best of your very special abilities, you will need to train on a practical level to shape your talents into something effective in the world. Although the inspiration comes freely, the skills have to be learned. There is also a quality of melancholy which you often carry, which reflects your openness to the deeper sadness inherent in human life. This can turn your aspirations toward some kind of work healing or helping others, for you are acutely sensitive to others' pain and can readily identify with it. You may find satisfaction in this kind of work, especially if you have strong spiritual inclinations and feel you want to contribute your efforts to something greater than yourself. Try to be realistic about your limitations. You must learn to balance your openness to others with a sound appreciation of your own needs and an ability to maintain your boundaries when others want too much. You can sometimes feel afflicted with that "divine discontent" which is often the burden of the artist, the healer, and any individual who is intuitively aware of planes of existence subtler than the material world. Don't ignore this inner yearning, but don't indulge it too much. Your gifts are too rare and special to squander in escapism, and too needed by others to be ignored in favour of a more conventional or earthbound path.

Insecurity can work to your advantage

You are not only sensitive to the needs of others; you are also acutely aware of how they feel about you, and you are not always sure you will be appreciated or your abilities valued. This sensitivity to how others perceive you can be hurtful at times, because you are very vulnerable to criticism, real or imagined - especially from those in authority. You sometimes imagine that you are being judged and found wanting, when in fact you are your own harshest judge. But your self-doubt, paradoxically, could prove a great asset. Although it may sometimes make you feel unsure of yourself and frightened of failure, it can also act as a spur to accomplishment, making you determined to succeed with or without others' support. Ultimately, because you are so vulnerable to the judgements of authority, you will probably need to become an authority yourself. And ambition, in someone as orientated as you toward pleasing others, is not at all a bad thing.

Despite your talents and natural charm, fear of failure and rejection has probably caused you plenty of loneliness and unhappiness during your life, and depressing thoughts may periodically undermine your sense of self-worth. Your belief in your competence and creative potential is sometimes undermined by a deep conviction that you are not good enough, and that whatever you produce will not be acceptable. But your urgent need to be recognised and valued by the world could become a goad to push you into developing your talents. There is a tough, self-sufficient core in you, probably formed through periods of isolation that began early in life. This tough core ensures that you can stand alone if necessary - and you need that inner assurance because others matter so much to you. Your insecurity can sometimes make you a little too diffident and self-effacing. But it can also make you determined to prove, to yourself and to others, that you are deserving of respect and a position of responsibility. When confronted with a work challenge, you may sometimes swing between feeling like a hurt child and feeling grimly determined to be in control one day. Let your insecurity work for you; aim high and pursue your ambitions with determination, however much they may be a form of compensation for self-doubt. Aim to become your own authority, rather than feeling like a failure because you cannot get on in a more subservient role. Although you need to work with and for others, you also need to know that you can handle responsibility and take decisions yourself. Nothing less than the genuine respect and recognition of the world outside will ease your need to prove yourself. Don't sit about feeling sorry for yourself; instead, aim for the top.

Self-love is as important as love of others

You are a natural peacemaker and negotiator, and you possess the great gift of bringing warmth, empathy, and human interest to any sphere you work in. You could make any work environment a happier, more inviting place to be. You need a field of work where you can exercise these talents and be rewarded for them. Your desire to feel that others are in harmony with you can occasionally result in difficult situations at work, for you are prone to avoiding confrontation or difficult issues which might alienate others; and this can lead to confusion and communication breakdowns. You prefer to sidestep others' anger, but in doing so, you can sometimes make them angry because they feel things are not able to be openly expressed. This is not innate dishonesty, but springs from your profound desire to create an atmosphere of co-operation around you - the very quality which makes you such a valuable asset to any group, team, company, or institution with which you are involved. In order to get the most out of your particular talents, one of which is your capacity to bring people together and smooth over potential disputes, you need to be able to stand alone if necessary. Your diplomatic skills, and the spirit of unity which you have the power to bring to group situations, are best expressed when you know, deep down, that you can bear someone else disagreeing or exchanging sharp words with you. Learn to value and nourish yourself as much as you value and nourish those around you. This will ensure that you yourself will be contented in your work as well as making the lives of those you work with richer and happier.


Contact with subtler levels of life

There is a side of your nature which is not wholly comfortable within the limits and boundaries of material life. For this reason, any work you choose to do needs, hopefully, to honour your deep craving for what Plato called the Good, the True and the Beautiful. The "rat race" , with its questionable ethics and pressure to make money and achieve status, may sometimes tire and depress you, and if you are exposed to too much of it, you may well find yourself becoming quite depressed and even ill. Pay attention if you have been taking a lot of time off work because of vague symptoms and dragging tiredness.

Your special gifts do not exclude you from the possibility of material rewards from the ordinary world. But try not to ignore your aspirations, however much others might tell you to toughen up. You know that there is Something More in life, and you also need to be around others who share at least a little of this vision, in both your personal and professional life. Tough competition and aggression among co-workers can easily bruise and discourage you, for you are liable to back off from open confrontation. Although your sensitivity is not an excuse for avoidance of life's challenges, nevertheless try to believe in yourself as someone who has the power to give expression to your dreams as well as earning a living.

Service to something greater

Although you, like other humans, need to maintain some stability in the material world, your work should provide you with the opportunity to serve something greater. Regardless of the language you choose to describe that "something", it lies at the core of your motivation in life, and also needs to form the basis of your vocation. Even if you work in a more mundane sphere, you need to know that your own contribution helps to invoke that inner world of beauty and peace which you know exists beyond the stress of mundane existence. As long as you are able to maintain your connection with that inner world, you could work at just about any sort of job without feeling you have lost your way. But it would be better if you could find work where the two worlds are not so far apart. That is likely to be much more fulfilling. Whether it is the realm of the imagination or the realm of the spirit, you would be happiest knowing that you can create some kind of bridge, translating the mysteries of the inner world into forms which are helpful and enriching to the outer world. You can certainly enjoy material success at the same time. But that could never be the sole motivation of your working life. If you try to make material achievement your primary goal, you are likely to be perpetually dissatisfied. Whatever field you choose, make sure it can provide you with the opportunity to build bridges between inner and outer realities.

Your opinion counts too

Your chief limitation, in terms of your working life, arises from your greatest strength. Because you are so aware of the value of others' ideas, you are often insufficiently appreciative of your own; and because co-operation and harmony matter so much to you, you may sometimes betray your own needs and aspirations in order to preserve that harmony. This can limit the extent to which you feel confident enough to offer your own truly original and creative ideas. If such a state of affairs goes on for too long, you will become frustrated and resentful, and all those efforts to preserve harmony will result in your own emotional nature feeling distinctly inharmonious. A balance is therefore necessary, if you are to remain true to both your need to be involved with the human community and your need to express yourself as an individual. Even if you feel you are expressing yourself adequately - for example, you might be the person in charge of a company or group - you may need to reflect on any subtle ways in which you allow yourself to be undermined because you fear disapproval or don't wish to hurt or upset others. If you bottle up your natural self-assertiveness, it may erupt despite your best efforts, showing itself in a sharp, critical, irritable manner which comes and goes unaccountably and puts everybody on edge. This is a limitation which can be worked with and turned into an asset, if you are prepared to be honest with yourself and others.

Don't suppress your competitive instincts

There is far more of a competitive spirit in you than you might realise or care to acknowledge. Despite your adaptability and wonderful gift of creating harmony around you, you have a deep need to prove your worth by being first and best. Your ability to compromise and smooth over differences can sometimes mask real anger at being elbowed out of the way by more aggressive types; but anger - especially in the workplace - is not something you are comfortable with. It is also likely that you feel vaguely guilty or ashamed of feeling such powerful emotions, because your ethics and sense of fair play - as well as your strong wish to "belong" -block your natural self-assertive instincts. You may fight well when fighting on behalf of others, but it is unlikely that you are prepared to push yourself forward to secure a better position or make your own point of view known. Yet complete suppression of your personal ambitions could cause many problems, not least the periodic but unexpected eruption of an anger which is out of proportion to the immediate situation. If you stifle your feelings for too long, they could take their toll on your body as well, creating those annoying but vague symptoms such as recurring headaches which are more a sign of stifled anger than of genuine ill-health. You need, sometimes and on some level of your working life, to assert yourself and grasp first prize, and enjoy the pleasure that comes from knowing you have beaten the competition. This may anger other people, not least those working colleagues who are used to your stepping out of the way to allow them room to shine. Learn to put up with others' anger and envy; otherwise you yourself may fall prey to anger and envy of others' ability to put themselves first.

Creating healthy boundaries

Boundaries - or the lack of them - are likely to be an ongoing theme in your working life. Sometimes you have too little sense of your own self-protection, and sometimes you can flare up angrily because you feel overloaded and pressured by others' expectations. You hate hurting others, and you sometimes try to be too tolerant and forgiving. This can mean that you say "Yes" a lot when you should be saying no, and you may often feel tired, depleted, and overwhelmed at work because everyone has been able to help themselves freely to your ideas, energy, and time. Whatever your work, you need to establish and maintain healthy boundaries. "Healthy" may vary from one individual to another; you may not require huge defensive bastions erected against others, and healthy boundaries, for you, may not need to be that strong. But like all humans, you cannot give endlessly without suffering serious problems as a result. Learn to separate your working life from your personal life, and make sure you have clear time to yourself, undisturbed by the demands of your work. Holidays which are really holidays are very necessary for you; don't take your work to the beach with you. Also, avoid seeking work in an environment where employees are treated as though they are machines without feeling and without private lives; the company which behaves toward its staff in such an unfeeling way is not the place for you, because you will find yourself exploited and very, very angry. Learning to structure your time better may also help, for you have a tendency to get so involved in something that you cease noticing that it is now midnight and you have forgotten to eat dinner. The mundane world, although it may not be especially interesting to you, should not be treated with disdain; for it is here that boundaries need to be established. Most importantly, listen to your own feelings before you say "Yes" to anyone else's request or demand.

Learn to deal honestly with self-doubt

Although you can often be the easiest person to get along with in a work environment, your uncertainty about your own worth can make you secretly resentful of your dependency on others. And that, in turn, can make you surprisingly critical of others' mistakes, because deep down you are so critical of your own imagined "failings". The people you work with may discover, to their surprise, that there are two of you - the first a considerate, responsive, co-operative personality, and the second an overly critical and controlling one. There are conflicts deep within you that sometimes come out unexpectedly in difficult behaviour. You tend to expect the same extremely high standards from others that you expect from yourself; and sometimes these standards are simply too high for any human to meet. The harder you are on yourself, the harder you are likely to be on others. You can also be hypersensitive to others' criticism when you are in one of these moods, and may react with anger far out of proportion to the slight, real or imagined. And you can fail to offer the important word of praise or encouragement when it is most needed, for some inner mechanism holds you back from giving the generous support that you yourself are so in need of yet may have been deprived of in your early life. This complex pattern is not a "character fault", but most likely arises from a kind and idealistic nature which has, in the formative years of your life, not received the kind of encouragement you needed. You have many self-doubts, and sometimes behave as though you feel you will never be "good enough". Try to achieve a greater understanding of the inner mechanism which makes you so self-critical and, in consequence, so critical of those whose apparent incompetence touches a raw psychic nerve within you. You may also experience difficulty in delegating responsibilities to others, because you cannot bear anything to go wrong in those spheres where you are ultimately responsible. Learn to relax and let go a little. No one can be perfect, and somewhere deep inside you may expect perfection from yourself.

Others are the elixir of life

Your interest in and need of others forms the basis of all your working relationships, and your genuine desire to contribute to the overall welfare of the group ensures that you are likely to make warm and supportive relationships among your colleagues and co-workers. This is your great strength in terms of working relationships, and you would be happiest in a work environment where you can feel you belong and are part of a human "family". You would probably excel at team work and have the ability to create harmony and co-operation in situations where others might generate or exacerbate conflict. You can easily act as a group representative or arbiter, since you have an instinctive empathy for both sides of any conflict or disagreement and can exercise your diplomatic skills to the best advantage.

The genuine desire to help others, and the need to be needed, are sure to create lasting and caring friendships among those with whom you work, and you need such friendships; you are not well suited to working around others in a detached and uninvolved way. You would probably be unhappy in a work environment where personal contact with co-workers is minimal, or where you are required to work alone independent of free and spontaneous contact with other people.

However, this strength could also prove difficult unless you are also able to sometimes take the initiative and stand alone. Your desire to please and create harmony may be so strong that you are not able to assert yourself sufficiently, and others may take advantage of your peaceable nature. However pleasant your work environment, there will inevitably be times when you need to confront those in authority or those who work for you, or take a stand with colleagues whose behaviour or ideas you deem to be unfair or unproductive. You may have difficulties with aggression, anger and competitiveness when these very human expressions rear their heads in the working environment; but you will need to be able to stand them and act according to your own ethics and ideas, regardless of whether this creates a situation of temporary animosity. Because you are gifted at diplomacy, you will usually be able to smooth things out later; but there may also be times when things cannot be made entirely harmonious, and it is important that you do not sacrifice your own integrity or betray your own standards just to avoid conflict or a bad atmosphere. Because you are attracted to working with other people, you will always encounter the full range of human attributes in the working environment, and that means all the unconscious expressions of envy, rivalry, spite, and competitiveness as well as the more generous and ethical dimensions of human nature. As long as you can cope with both in a realistic way, and can fight to hold your ground when you have to, you should be able to enjoy excellent relationships in your working life.

What Success Really Means to You

For you, success is rooted in your ability to interact with others and discover your own worth and value through the relationships you make. This involves much more than your personal relationships, and may ultimately take you into the public arena in some form; for other people, individually and collectively, are the driving force behind your sense of individual destiny. You feel most alive, and know that your life has a sense of meaning and purpose, only if you are actively involved in dialogue with others, improving their lives and your own, listening and understanding, leading and sharing. You would never feel fulfilled working purely for yourself and your own benefit. You are at your best when you can discover your own individuality through the mirror of others' feedback, and through the efforts you make to help them discover their unique abilities and gifts. You are interested in all the myriad means by which human beings interact on both individual and social levels, and nothing fascinates you more than the progress which comes from finding the clearest, fairest, most balanced perspective. You are a natural mediator and peacemaker, however much you might feel you must fight for peace; and truth, for you, always lies in the objectivity which comes from discussion and dialogue.

A certain diffidence and lack of self-confidence could lead you to be less than direct in your interaction with others, and the need to please could overwhelm real authenticity and creativity in your work. Worries about whether you have the right to feel "special" could cause you to betray your own ideals and beliefs, and fear of being "selfish" could make you give away too much of your own power in working situations. However, these anxieties could also serve a highly positive purpose, provided you do not stifle your need for individual self-expression. Your concern about selfishness could impel you to develop extremely high ethics in all your dealings with others, and your reluctance to appear too self-assertive could help you to develop many skills in diplomacy and teamwork which could contribute enormously to both your relationships with colleagues and the effectiveness of your work with others. Harmony and balance are ideals toward which, consciously or unconsciously, you will always strive, particularly through your dealings with others. Your true vocation must support your need for involvement in the development and destiny of other human beings.
