Vocational Astrology

Vocational Astrology

Introduction

While the terms “job,” “career” and “vocation” are often used interchangeably, they have slightly different meanings. In your birth chart the three are indicated by different components as well.

Finding your vocation is not a one-time event but a continuous process of self-discovery and growth. With patience, perseverance, and an open mind, you can discover a path that aligns with your values, interests, and skills, and find fulfillment and purpose in your work.

Job

A job is typically a specific task or series of tasks that a person performs in exchange for compensation. It is often temporary or short-term and may not require a high level of skill or training.

For example, a part-time job at a retail store, a summer internship, or a freelance project can be considered a job. People may have multiple jobs throughout their lives and may not have a specific career path in mind.

In your birth chart your job is shown by your sixth house complex.

Career

A career refers to a series of jobs or positions that an individual holds over the course of their working life. Careers are often associated with a specific profession or field and are generally viewed to achieve financial stability and success. While some people may feel a strong sense of vocation towards their chosen career, others may view it as simply a means to an end.

A career is a long-term profession chosen and developed over time. It requires a higher level of education, skill, and training and often involves a clear pathway for advancement and growth. Careers are typically more stable and provide a sense of fulfillment and purpose.

For example, becoming a doctor, lawyer, engineer, or teacher can be considered a career. People may have one or multiple careers throughout their lives and may work for different employers in the same field.

In your birth chart your career is shown by your Midheaven, tenth house complex and sometimes by Saturn.

Vocation

A vocation is a calling or a sense of purpose that drives an individual towards a particular type of work. It’s often considered a deep-seated passion or a natural inclination towards a certain profession or field.

Vocations are typically associated with personal fulfillment and a sense of meaning and purpose in life. People with a strong vocational calling often feel a sense of satisfaction and joy from their work, even if it’s not financially rewarding.

In your birth chart your vocation is shown by your Oriental Planet complex.

Different but Similar

While a job, vocation and career are different concepts, they can overlap in certain situations.

For example, a person who feels a strong vocational calling towards teaching may choose to pursue a career as a teacher. In this case, their career and vocation align, allowing them to find both personal fulfillment and financial success in their work. This is shown by the complexities in your unique birth chart.

Motivation

Ultimately, the difference between job, vocation and career lies in the motivation and purpose behind the work. While all can lead to professional success, a vocation is driven by a deeper sense of purpose and personal fulfillment, while a job or career is generally focused on financial stability and advancement within a particular field.

How to Find Your Vocation

Finding your vocation in life can be a challenging but rewarding journey. A vocation is a strong sense of calling or purpose in life, where your talents and interests align with a meaningful and fulfilling occupation.

Here are some steps you can take to find your vocation:

Self-reflection

Start by asking yourself questions about your values, interests, and skills. Reflect on what you enjoy doing, what you are good at, and what you care about. Think about how you want to contribute to the world and what kind of impact you want to make.

Explore Different Options

Research and explore different career paths that align with your interests and skills. Consider talking to people who work in those fields to gain insight into what their day-to-day work entails. Attend career fairs, take courses, and volunteer to gain hands-on experience and exposure.

Experiment

Take risks and try new things to discover your strengths and limitations. Take on new challenges and opportunities that can help you build your skills and confidence and to learn about your strengths and limitations. Consider internships, part-time jobs, or freelance work to gain experience and exposure.

Seek Guidance

Consider seeking guidance from your astrologer, mentor, career coach, or counselor. They can provide you with valuable advice, feedback, and support as you navigate your journey towards finding your vocation.

Stay Open and Flexible

Keep an open mind and stay flexible as you explore different paths. Be willing to pivot and adjust your goals as you gain new insights and experiences.

Identify Your Passions

Start by making a list of things that excite and inspire you. Consider your hobbies, interests, and any activities that you enjoy doing in your free time. Identifying your passions is a process of self-discovery and exploration.

Pay Attention to Your Emotions

Pay attention to the activities that make you feel happy, energized, and fulfilled. These can be good indicators of your passions.

Think Back to Your Childhood

Try New Things

Be open to trying new things and stepping outside of your comfort zone. This can help you discover new passions and interests.

Take a Personality Test

Consider taking a personality test that can help you identify your strengths and interests. This can be a good starting point for discovering your passions.

Keep a Journal

Write down your thoughts and feelings about different activities that you try. This can help you identify which ones bring you the most joy and fulfillment.

Pay Attention to your Energy Levels
