Your 2016 Astrology: Does Your Child’s Career Depend on the Horoscope?

How do children learn, play and encounter the world based on their astrological chart?

 

Truth be told, I seldom do children’s charts. There are already too many influences trying to mould children using conventional cookie cutters, and I’m a believer in allowing individuals to grow their way, in their own time. After all, I’m a proponent of a profiling tool that charts each person as a unique individual!

Having said that, if you’re open to allowing your child to develop in their own unique individual ways (never mind if what they’re doing isn’t conventional or typically money-spinning), an astrological examination might be one of greatest gifts a parent can give to your child.

 

Going by Sun Signs is going to give you an incomplete information

Take Lindsay Lohan, who is a Cancer – it’s a sign typically associated with nurturing, sensitive, emotional children. Cancerians are usually described as quiet, retreating individuals; all well and good, but barely traits you’d associate with Lindsay Lohan, right?

 

How Children Learn and Early Life

The Third House in the chart will describe how one learns, communicate, and think. Planets in the Third House will give indications of the topics one is interested in, as well as conditions necessary to stimulate mental activity.

Lindsay Lohan has Venus here; she’s interested in things associated with fashion, beauty, aesthetics, art, plus this placement usually indicates someone who knows how to sugar-coat communication. Venus is in the sign of Leo, so self-expression will be the primary factor for what drives learning for her.

For children with this placement, it’s recommended to channel them to artistic pursuits, such as speech and dramapainting classes, role-playing, scenario learning. You want to make sure they get to show off, inject their personal touch and be creative. The downside of the placement is that thinking can be self-centred, so parents will have to ensure that taking into account the needs of others are instilled in their thinking process.

 

‘Career Indicators’ Can Be Interpreted on a Spectrum

The chart gives valuable clues about the condition of the child’s career path, and indeed Linday Lohan’s career indicators are pretty strong. Jupiter in Pisces in the 10th house (that’s the grey one that looks like a ‘4’) describes a career that is imaginative, boundless and has a sense of fantasy and glamour (appropriate for an acting career).

Achieving success should not typically pose a problem for her. However Jupiter makes red tension lines to Chiron in the 12th house (the green ‘key’) and Uranus in the Sixth House (the blue icon), and this can indicate problems with alcohol, drugs, an adrenaline-charged environment, and the typical “wild child” image. This description would fit in with Lohan’s reputation for speeding, drink driving, partying and incessant drug use.

All is not lost, however, for a child with Lohan’s placements, for an alternative interpretation could run as such: The same chart could also well describe someone in the helping professions, such as therapists helping those with drug and alcohol problems, for example, or perhaps an activist fighting for the rights of disadvantaged groups of people (that would account for the adrenaline-charged environment).

The chart will describe the conditions associated with one’s career, and a chart examination will reveal the spectrum for which the indicators lie, and parents can channel the child to use those energies, or express the conditions in positive, rather than destructive ways.

Remember, the Chart Will Describe One’s Unique Path

When parents get a chart examination done for their children, it’s important to remember that the child is a unique individual – what they want to do or end up doing may not be your idea of a viable career path (so many of us are doing work our parents balk at everyday!), and some of them have tough lessons built in to mould them into becoming the person they are.

A competent examination of the chart can be an invaluable tool for parenting and guidance, or self-discovery, if used to examine yourself.

Your 2016 Astrology: Is Your Career Right for You?

Credit: TheFinder Magazine

Searching for our vocation is easily among the most pressing concerns for anyone. What do your stars say?

I often get questions like, “Can you look at my chart and tell me what industry I should be in?” Now, the truth is, an astrologer doesn’t look at your chart and go “Ah, you’re a nurse / lawyer / florist / road sweeper!”, simply because there isn’t a planet, sign or house that’s assigned to every single possible vocation on earth.

What an astrologer CAN see though, is if a sense of right and wrong is paramount to you. Or if you absolutely judge your career choices by monetary remuneration alone, or vice versa, you don’t care about the remuneration, as long as the job involves doing things you enjoy. We can see if you have creative talent for writing, music, design, or that you have the desire to get into such professions, but don’t have the requisite innate talent to actually succeed at the top of the game.

Here is a glimpse of what astrologers look at when doing career readings:

Example: Chart of Steven Spielberg, born on 18 December 1946 at 6.16pm in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

A) The Ruler of the Midheaven

The Midheaven is the black arrow at the top of the chart, and it is one of the indicators of your “life path”, which, for most of us, determines the kind of work we end up doing. The ruler of the sign on the Midheaven indicates the kind of industry that’s most aligned with our career objectives, and also describes our approach to it.

For example, Spielberg’s Midheaven ruler is Jupiter in Scorpio in the 5th house. 5th house: associated with creative product, such as the media, leisure, fun, children.
Scorpio: intense, penetrative, not doing things in half-measures

Given the fact the Steven Spielberg is still one of Hollywood’s top directors, the career indicator is a fitting one. An astrologer would describe this as someone “in the right line of work”.

B) The House Position of the Sun

If you depend entirely on Sun sign descriptions of yourself, some astrology sources may seem “inaccurate” when describing your career inclinations, for example you might be a Scorpio, described as being into investigation, mysteries, the occult, sex, taboo topics and so on, but you might be in a trade that’s incongruous to that description, say, a kindergarten teacher!

 

You are so much more than just a Sun sign, but apart from that, often it is the house position of the Sun, not the sign, that gives me more clues about career paths / industries.

For example, Spielberg has his Sun in the 6th house, which typically describes someone who’s quite hands-on and process-oriented. Such people are typically low-key and detail-oriented, often concerned with precision and getting things right (sometimes to the extent of perfectionism). Considering he’s not an actor, but the director/producer, that’s just about right!

C) Planets in the 1st House

The 1st house in a birth chart may affect physical appearance on a superficial level, but going further than that, the 1st house is all about our personal identity. Many people identify strongly with what they do for a living i.e. “I am a digital marketer” or “I am a chef”, and this could be described by planets contributing to their sense of sense in the 1st house of a birth chart.

Spielberg doesn’t have anything in the first house, but the house is ruled by Moon in Scorpio in 5th House, which we saw earlier refers to his creative product, i.e. his movies, and this further emphasises how important his creative identity is to him.

Every individual chart tells its own story, and there are a myriad of ways in which a good astrologer can discern the layers of your self-expression. When you’re in the right line of work, your natural strengths can click into place and deliver worthy results.
