Vocational Astrology and Career Counseling Theory: A New Synthesis
Vocational astrology is an important topic right now with Saturn and Pluto transiting in Capricorn. Vocational astrology informs us about optimal career paths and aids career decision-making at different life stages; it also helps us cope with career setbacks and defeats, workplace stress, burnout, unemployment, changes of occupation, and retirement. Knowledge of astrology gives us wise perspective on the pressures and challenges most people experience regarding work and employment. Vocational astrology is one of the key areas of our societal life where the services of astrologers can be most impactful and will probably be in greatest future demand. In this talk I’ll show how vocational astrology is enhanced through knowledge of several career counseling theories, discuss how astrology aids us through periods of career crisis, and correlate planetary symbols with the renowned John Holland Typology of six vocational types. We’ll also discuss how astrology expands career counseling, adding spiritual nuance and the crucial dimension of timing.
