From a reader:
HI: Thank for your generous offer to answer a simple question. I’ve been feeling insanely confused on the direction of my life, especially with my career. I really hate my job and know in my heart that I should be doing something else? The problem is I have many interest.
If i find another job will it be a risk to leave a job that is so steady? Or is a risk what I need in my life?
Right now my cardinal climax makes total sense for me. Pluto is transiting my 1st house – This has me questioning all my relationships. Uranus is transiting my 3rd house -Saturn is transiting your 9th and 10th houses –
OK, firstly I want to say you have a grand water trine with the Moon involved. You have Uranus conjunct your Moon trine Venus in Pisces and loosely trine Mercury in Pisces and tightly trine your Moon and both your Uranus and Venus are trine Mars in the 7th house. You have both Mercury and Venus and your Sun at a very late degree 28 in Pisces, all giving you the gift or second sight, whether you have control of it or not is your decision but you have the raw talent to be extraordinarily gifted in this respect. Interestingly you have Neptune in your 12 in Sag, only reinforcing the psychic ability but for you it would be best to go through a system not from your family of origin, meaning you should study Buddhism or something else foreign if you were raised Catholic and vice versa if you were raised or grew up in an environment that was eastern based. Your chart is actually quite similar to mine although you are a bit more balanced than I but as I am missing fire you are missing earth, entirely. I was told many years ago by a fellow astrologer that when this occurs it is because one has worked through that energy in past lives and comes into this world with an excess of that energy therefore you choose not to have any planets in that element to compensate for this intensity. People have always thought I was some sort of fire sign, especially in my youth and I’m sure people conceive you (wrongly) as some kind of earth mamma. You are incredibly sensitive and with Saturn in Cancer in your 7th house and Pluto culminating in Libra from your 9th at the cusp of your 10th, I wonder if you ever considered a career in family law? Fighting for the underprivileged and eventually getting into politics? This would be a tremendous use of your deep compassion, although you often hide it and show it erratically especially in relationship to your career which you take very personally. You want to help out humanity in a big way and you should, for you are a very old soul often overwhelmed with your feelings of grief for this world. You are lucky to have come from a home that confirmed your individuality, although your parents may have fought sometime but it looks like they always found a way to work it out. Interestingly you internalized their arguing by being overly diplomatic and by tiptoeing around things a bit, often creeping sideways when trying to assert yourself. People with this much Pisces in their charts have difficult lives (in general) even if nothing “horrible” happened to them in their early life, they are so extraordinarily sensitive the smallest thing is a 1000 times worse for them to endure. They also have a tendency to self-pity and may think things were worse than they were when compared to other people’s experiences. And with the moon in Scorpio conjunct Uranus it will cause one to suppress feelings or make one uncomfortable about telling others about oneself (it’s in the 11th so this is especially true for you with friends and of course with Uranus there this is reinforced in career as well). You have a penchant for the occult, clearly with so much water in your chart and even from your question, you knew much more about your chart than the average person. You have Sun and Mercury in the third house with Venus close from the 2nd house cusp, meaning you manifest your spirituality and psychic ability through your mind and perhaps dismiss your abilities to some extent. With Libra ruling your 10th house and Venus in Pisces in he 2nd I really think you would (and Pluto so close, the most elevated planet in your chart) it seems you should either do something creative for a career but it has to have mass appeal or you need to get involved in politics and law (ultimately).
As for your question let’s follow your career path by depositor down the line: Your tenth house (career) is ruled by Venus. You have Venus in Pisces and therefore your Venus is ruled by Neptune in Sagittarius in the 12th and Jupiter in Aries in the 4th Pisces has both as co-rulers. You have Pluto culminating at the top of your chart in Libra, again reinforcing Venus which is ruled by Pisces. Saturn which is the natural ruler of the 10th is in Cancer, your Moon is in Scorpio conjunct Uranus both ruled by Pluto in Libra and Mars (again co-ruler) in Cancer.
To clear up all that confusion, You need to do something on a large-scale, with mass appeal. You have a lot of things that lead me to believe you have a political bent and your destiny lies in incorporating other cultures. You have tremendous insight, a natural ability for psychology and are highly sensitive. You need to move the world in a big way and you, I can see why you are confused because these energies don’t jump out at one with a specific easy answer. On the cusp of your second house is Capricorn which is ruled by Cancer again the moon is involved, again you will probably change jobs a lot in your lifetime and it is my opinion the more I look at your chart you are meant to do a lot of things and learn many skills because perhaps what you are meant to do does not entirely exist yet, it will be something you will sort of invent. Or be part of a new revolution. So for now follow your heart get a job helping people, perhaps working for a charity for women as Pluto will be making a sextile to your Venus in your 2nd house and has just finished opposing your Mars in the 7th house, making working with abused women and children or for an organization who helps them. The other thing here is that you have Mercury ruling your 6th, you could do some writing which you are good at which could earn some money or sales for now. You can really do anything, your chart is set up to be used for many different types of careers which is why you are confused and why I’m not much help because as I said, what your really meant to do hasn’t completely come into being yet. So follow your heart, your intuition. You may have an opportunity through a sibling coming up that could work out well for now.
Don’t try to figure it all out right now over time things will become clear. Just do what you are called to do for the time being, you need to learn and grow in many ways. Just go along for the ride and try not to worry. I know it’s not easy but I’ve given you some clues to follow and if you bear those in mind you will find your way.
Oh and with Pluto going through your house now (for forever!) this will cause an identity crisis. You have to push past its influence and connect to your spiritual self, your higher self to get around it and even still it is powerful and it will mess with your head especially since you are naturally ambitious and it has such a strong hold in your natal chart. You are meant to be in a position of power or government that much I’m very certain.
OK, I got another e-mail from this person and it gave me some more impressions which I will share here:
Something about this e-mail made me feel you have been in the business world, a world that doesn’t fit you. You’ve had to pretend to be someone you aren’t. And it’s driving you crazy! Meaning it’s putting stress on you and making you lose faith in yourself, in the world and in your connection to the higher power as well as keeping you in survival mode. Perhaps this has been going on for so long now that you don’t know who you are but don’t lose heart because you can’t be lost when you own your power and have faith in yourself, something you haven’t done in a while.
Many blessings to you,
