Where Do I Go From Here?

directionQuestion:  Career redirection: I have a CPA. After being the in field of Accounting post college, I decided it is not for me. Too much stress and I just crunch numbers in a cube all day.  I quit my job in May, 2015, the tension was too difficult to deal with and my blood pressure was through the roof.  Where do I go from here?  For the summer, I am helping a friend doing electrical work as a helper.  Huge pay decrease but at least I am not so confined.  Note 6th house emphasis.  -Andrew

Answer: Hi Andrew, thanks so much for writing.  Sounds like you are taking a much needed break, tending to your well being.  Yes, you have *a lot* going on in your 6th house (for those reading who might not know what this means, imagine the universe shining a flashlight on one specific part of the chart, in this case the house of day-to-day work.)  Given its contents, I imagine that daily work is important to you, and poses some challenges.  I also imagine this is not the last change of jobs for you!

You have a clear desire for freedom, and astrologically I can see that being a driver in your decision making.   As you consider what route to take next, take these inquiries into account:

  • Where would you like to go deeper?
  • What topics inspire you to look at the big picture?
  • Will this next career allow you to simplify your life?
  • What organization / industry could benefit from your objective outlook?
  • What does service to others and humanity mean to you?
  • Are you interested in using your powers of persuasion?

Communication features prominently in your chart – I wonder if it comes along with a hesitation in expressing your personal ideas and thoughts.  It would be worth investigating your natural gifts about guiding others.  You are here to break the mold, and can inspire others to do so as well!

I hope this is helpful to you.  Best to you as you take the space of the summer to research and explore.

Truly,
Aubrie

Career Crossroads

Question: I spent years trying to break into the field of international development, and after several years in this field, I have a hard time staying enthusiastic and hopeful that I am making a significant difference for myself or others in my work.  I find the work interesting sometimes, and I believe it is well suited to many of my skills, but I often feel very drained at the end of the day, and have trouble getting motivated in the morning.  Work is generally not something I want to discuss in my time off, and therefore I feel the passion for it has gone, if it was ever there.  I find reading about psychology and health very interesting but I don’t know if I should try to change careers or just continue to enjoy my interests in my time off and continue with my career?  I have finally had some success in my work and seen myself progress and I am reluctant to leave given the momentum I have gained.  Thank you for your insight!  – Jessica

Hi Jessica –

Many thanks for writing. You have put a lot of effort into your current path and are at a crossroads – push through or start anew? Let’s take a look at what astrology has to say.  🙂

Your chart speaks to a visceral need to be inspired and energized by the way you interact with the world. Astrologically, these feelings are guideposts to whether you are on path or not – so kudos to you for listening to yourself.

For you, restlessness intensifies if you are finding it hard to contribute in a way that is in alignment with your values system centered around fairness and if circumstances restrict your natural tendency to be experimental and autonomous.

In assessing your career direction, ask yourself the questions below. Keep your mind open to a myriad of possibilities – whether that be your current career or something entirely different.

  • What feels fun?
  • Do you have an outlet for being innovative?
  • What kind of environment would support your natural gifts of diplomatic communication?
  • How can you be your own leader?
  • What projects would you like to initiate?

Try not to be too judgmental of yourself at this time. You have a lot of love to give the world and you will find the next expression of it, take heart!

Truly,
Aubrie
