The best job is one that matches who we are with how we earn a living. When there is a mismatch, we experience anxiety, frustration, and burnout. After two years of pandemic-induced stress and change in the workplace, millions of people are re-evaluating what they want to do with themselves to earn money. As astrologers, we have tools that can assist our clients to assess how their interests, abilities, values, and personalities impact their daily work.
This class introduces vocational astrology through a hands-on set of techniques and exercises. Students will test different methodologies on their own charts and the charts of well-known personalities.
Week 1: Introduction to vocational counseling and creative visualization. This week explores the basics of career counseling from a cultural and astrological perspective. Students will combine creative visualizations with astrological symbols to gain insight into an individual’s personality (for example, graphic depictions of “I like/I dislike” and “I want/I don’t want”)
Week 2: Personal happiness and social usefulness Part 1. The Personal Planets and the Angles: their expression, needs, challenges, and interactions.
Week 3: Personal happiness and social usefulness Part 2. The Astrological Houses: Traditionally, astrologers have used the 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses along with the Midheaven as indicators of career. But the other houses also have their roles.
Weeks 4 and 5: Putting it together. Students will explore the effectiveness of different astrological methods to interpret career potential.
