you may feel vocationally challenged because
of these missed opportunities, thankfully,
your chart shows promise in the career department.
To shift this unfortunate pattern, decide on
your direction and stay focused on your goals.
Your natal Mercury in Gemini in the 11th (communications
and connections at work) square 10th-house
ruler Mars in Pisces in the 8th (personal motivation
and goals) reveals that you may undermine yourself
or spread yourself too thin.
Neither failing a work advancement test (due
to classes you're taking to further your career)
nor improperly filling out a job application
reflect bad luck, but simply bad planning.
What beliefs do you need to change to stop
sabotaging your own success?
Next, cultivate an on-the-job network. Your Mars—Mercury
square may also indicate that you feel threatened by
your colleagues, and therefore competitive with them,
and Uranus in Leo rising square Neptune can be the
mark of a maverick. Though you may pride yourself on
being independent, this may explain why you're not
in the loop about upcoming job openings.
But the greatest
hindrance to your successful advancement may
be your own self-doubt. Natal Neptune—IC
is notorious for undermining trust in oneself.
It's as though, at the very foundation of your
being, you simply don't believe you've got
what it takes, and that deep-seated but often
unconscious belief invites failure.
Neptune—IC can become your strongest ally, as
you transform self-doubt into powerful faith in your
own capabilities. You can accomplish this via self-help
books, therapy or coaching, building a personal support
network, meditation, spiritual practice, or religion
— whatever Neptune-related activity works best
for you. Prepare now for December, when your progressed
Moon crosses the natal IC, offering the potential for
a deep and profound transformation.
Based on the 30-year progressed lunation cycle.1
is an opportune time to creatively refocus your goals
(waxing sextile), so begin to research your career
direction now. Your capacity to step into a new, more
successful professional phase is heightened by the
current trine of your progressed Sun to the natal Midheaven.2
transiting Uranus will conjoin natal Mars while squaring
enabling you to finally end the negative pattern you
describe, if you begin to take advantage of current
planetary opportunities and get ready to succeed. Go
