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.

Venus in Aries

Why They Love You: You’re outgoing and you sparkle at social events. Chances are, your creativity in artistic pursuits paints you as an exciting and active personality! You’re passionate in love and romance and people won’t be left in any doubt that you’re totally into them – and who doesn’t want to be wanted?

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: Whoa, did that woman just come on to me? Competitive, direct Venus in Aries has no qualms about making the first move, but pssst… sometimes guys lie when they say they want the woman to take the initiative *hint*. Other times, though, your affections are impulsive  and unstable – the fire doesn’t burn steady for long

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): You like strong, independent, physically active types. You don’t even mind if she’s a bit loud – after she’s just so full of life it’s hard to keep quiet about it. Be sure you bring enough of your own fire to the relationship – she expects it of her man.

 

Venus in Taurus

Why They Love You: Steady and loyal, you would rather attract than pursue your loved one. You have a developed sense of touch, so they love it that you’re so physically affectionate. Beauty is a major factor of your self-expression – you always make sure yourself, your home, your office, looks good, and that can be really attractive.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: All that beauty doesn’t come cheap: your expenditures can get high and in extreme cases you could be high maintenance. Emotional security is so important that if it ever get threatened, you could be possessive and jealous. Comfort is #1 for you, if a relationship isn’t comfortable anymore, you’ll seek it elsewhere, but you won’t leave your relationship because you don’t like change.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Taurus is about beauty in physical form – little wonder a pretty face does wonders for this guy and if he’ll admit it, so do boobs (physical structure, beauty, geddit?) But it’s not just sexual attraction, cos the Venus in Taurus guy is looking for someone who’s gonna be a good child-bearer of his.

 

Venus in Gemini

Why They Love You: You’re witty, social and conversational, and people are drawn to your agile mind and intellect. You’re an expert on artistic expression, especially if it involves word play or jokes with puns. You’re so easy to approach because you’re friendly with everyone, and you’re not difficult to talk to cos you never run of out words. For that reason you’re also probably king/queen of whatsapp flirting.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: So many choices, so little time. Relationships sound so restrictive because you can only pick ONE. Eventually you do settle on one, but you can’t always help that wondering eye because all these yummy alternative options keep showing up! You secretly think life would be easier if you all just remained friends.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): I’ll say this for these guys – they have original tastes. Venus in Gemini men aren’t into your body (yes they do get distracted by the curvy ones sometimes… but), they are actually into your brains. Their lady should be a witty conversationalist, and instead of the Scarlett Johanssen type, they probably prefer the athletic, skinny types. A perky and outgoing (even tomboyish) personality also turns them on.

 

Venus in Cancer

Why They Love You: You’re the marrying type – financial and domestic security – what’s not to like? Your homes are beautiful and comfortable, so partners truly feel like they’re home when they’re with you. You also like home-based dates (movies at home, dinners at home), so that means your date can usually save some money (hee hee). You’re probably a good cook or are maternal in some way – perfect if he’s looking for a mother of his kids.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: You’re sensitive, and this means you get easily hurt. Emotional reactions can be unpredictable, and less patient partners won’t have time to get over the sulks. You want a family, and tension can build if the partner isn’t ready for that level of commitment.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Your tastes are more traditional, and perhaps more real. You’re not interested in glamour, in fact you see plenty of beauty in homely types (though she scores major points if she’s booby). Between slightly overweight and skinny, you’d probably pick the former. Between a good cook and a brainy woman, you’ll choose gastronomic security every time.

Venus in Leo

Why They Love You: You’re a lover of life, and appreciate the drama that goes with it. Expensive, lavish parties are your forte and people come forth to bask in your warmth. You know just what to do to get the admiration and attention of others. Romance and courtship comes naturally to you, and partners who make an effort in this regard are seldom disappointed by your reactions.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: There’s a snobbish streak just under all that sunny warmth, and if at any time your partner isn’t someone you’re proud to show off, beware the diva. You’re undoubtedly the king/queen, but even your loyal subjects deserve appreciation sometimes, and you can’t expect royal treatment 24/7. You’re incredibly loyal though, and sometimes won’t let go of a relationship even if they break up with you.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Polished is the word. If a King searches for his queen, she’d better look the part, and you’re sensible enough to know that au naturel doesn’t get her there, so you prefer the made-up, dressed-up types over the homely kind. You like to entertain, so she gets extra points if she knows how to orchestrate the royal procession – with you at the head of it of course.

 

Venus in Virgo

Why They Love You: You have great appreciation for the intellectual and work achievements of others, so hard-working and competent people gravitate to you. People might as well get used to hanging out in your workplace, because you spend so much time there, and also because it’s more comfortable than your actual home. You’re very helpful and know how to offer just what is needed from you, plus you’re also very open to improvement tips from others.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: We know you’re trying to help by pointing out where they have room for improvement, but nobody likes hearing where they’re not perfect. When it comes to manners, personal appearance and hygiene, most people are slobs compared to you.

*On occasion a Venus in Virgo persons shows up to be the exact opposite – promiscuous, or they’re terrible slobs. If you’re one of them, I’d like to study your chart – please email me here

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): You like the quiet, bookish types who look like competent librarians, because the more dressed-up ones seem impractical and flighty. Beware – if you go for people who seem kinda lost, make sure you’re not in it cos you just wanna fix them.

 

Venus in Libra

Why They Love You: You’re beautiful, and marriage, social relations are extremely important to you – romantic opportunities tend to follow accordingly. You need a lot of harmony, so you seldom start fights or disagreements. Fairness is important to you, so you’re happy to carry your side of responsibilities for the relationship.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: When blissful harmony is affected by disagreements, you tend to go along with things just to restore the peace. Be careful of compromising your values, because that’s never a long-term solution. Also you like partners to be real smooth in public situations – and not all guys can meet your standards of ‘refined gentleman’.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Pretty faces. Gets you every time.

 

Venus in Scorpio

Why They Love You: Hot smouldering sexuality is your hallmark, but really, your approach is passionate and once committed, there’s almost nothing you wouldn’t do for your partner. Actually the ones who get attracted to you can’t always explain why – they’re just lured in by your magnetism.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: When passions run so high, sometimes you don’t operate on reason anymore. Betrayal and jealousy kick in sometimes, mainly cos you take love and romance so seriously. On occasion you get upset enough to cut others off entirely – eliminating the possibility of reinstating your relationships. You find yourself getting emotional BDSM – it’s almost as if love without pain isn’t love.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Mysterious, silent, controlled, powerful, confident. You can’t resist sexy ladies dressed in black.

Venus in Sagittarius

Why They Love You: You’re honest and open with your relationship – your principles and ethical standards are never compromised, though unusual relationships don’t scare you. You enjoy travel, and it’s not unusual for you to find romantic partners while on your travels. If your date is adventurous, they won’t be disappointed cos you’re willing to try all kinds of activities.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: For people who are so otherwise open-minded you can be incredibly pig-headed when it comes to beliefs (sometimes religious, sometimes not) – be careful of imposing your belief systems on your partners. In another sphere, you believe in honesty, but the bluntness is sometimes too much for others to handle. Signs that are more sensitive (read the whole article for clues) will feel unloved by you.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): The carefree wild child is your girl. Athletic is in, fat is tricky. You have strong sexual stamina ad you wanna make sure she can keep up.

 

Venus in Capricorn

Why They Love You: You know the right behaviour in almost any situation, so you’re seldom socially awkward. Capricorn rules the bones, and you’re typically blessed with a classic facial bone structure which confers a beauty that lasts well into old age. Significant age gaps between you and the partners aren’t uncommon, so partners don’t have to worry on that account. You’re a steady partner because you take responsibility seriously.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: Your standards are high when it comes to prestige; lesser mortals may feel keenly that you’re not too impressed by them. The emotional types may also find difficulty connecting to you emotionally, with the complaint that you’re too professional and cold in your approach. Venus in Capricorn types sometimes don’t feel that they can start a relationship until their careers are on track.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): A woman who’s worthy of queening your empire, of course. You like traditionally classy girls, and definitely can’t resist a girl in a smart business suit. If you have a boss or secretary who fits the bill, that’s the one you want. Having said that, when you’re stressed out at work, almost anyone looks attractive to you.

 

Venus in Aquarius

Why They Love You: You sparkle and you bubble and your sense of fun is unconventional – consequently you also seem to like ingenious or eccentric people. Romantic partners should be friends first and foremost.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: Freedom is a biggie for Venus in Aquarius, and won’t tolerate partners who get jealous or possessive easily. Your loving nature is unpredictable and it’s possible that attractions can happen as well as disappear suddenly. Marriage can thus be hard to sustain, but Aquarius being a fixed sign, is capable of commitment if the partner is someone they truly respect.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): Unique, strange, quirky – they work best for you.

 

Venus in Pisces

Why They Love You: Romantic and sensitive, you believe in true love, and won’t allow anyone else to tell you otherwise. You’re highly capable of sympathy and that’s why you’re the consummate nice guy.

Why Love Gets Rocky Sometimes: You need clear demonstrations of love and affection from others, else you feel lonely and disappointed. Your sympathetic nature sometimes attracts those who take advantage of you. The extreme fear of rejection means you hesitate to risk expressing your feelings, so you suffer your love in silence, hence missing romantic opportunities. Take care that you don’t indulge in maudlin sentimentality for lovers who are undeserving of your devotion.

Who’s Your Venus (If You’re A Man): You like softness, sweetness, even neediness – as long as she’s the epitome of femininity. Robustness and aggressiveness not required; in fact you’re more attracted when she’s not very confident.

 

Disclaimer: Each person is more than just a Venus sign, a myriad of factors determine how one operates. An astrologer will need to put degrees, houses positions and aspects into the mix to get a full picture of how anyone operates in relationships.

That’s Part 1 of my Valentine’s Special… stay tuned for Part 2 ‘Mars in Your Chart’
