Announcing my New Book–Career Choices and Challenges: an Astrological Guide!

CareerChoicesChallenges-cvrCareer Choices and Challenges: an Astrological Guide is my newest ebook offering. Vocational astrology was one of my specialties throughout my four decades of client work.

The book is my way of sharing what I’ve learned so you and your loved ones or clients can make better use of the energies of the signs, houses, and planets in the vocational sectors of the chart.

This two-volume set is 180,00 words long and includes 60 articles about various facets of vocational astrology. It’s divided into two parts in order to make navigation easier. The volumes are not sold separately, and the set is $25.

It’s distributed exclusively on my website,, and is being released worldwide today.

Part One is subtitled Vocational Patterns in the Natal Chart.  It’s an overview of the subject, including many articles that explore the roles played by the vocational houses and Midheaven, the natal planets placed in the career sectors, and tools for enhancing your career potential.  Both volumes provide templates that make it possible for you to analyze your own career-related chart features and those of other charts you work on.

Part Two is subtitled Transits to the Vocational Sectors.  There are lengthy sections giving an overview of the career changes and challenges that are likely to occur under transits from the slow-moving planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.  You’ll also learn how to capitalize on the inner planets’ passages through the career houses, including the Moon’s cycles, Mercury retrograde intervals, and Jupiter. It includes a chapter on how to make balanced and helpful predictions of tough transits, neither overly negative or overly positive.

Here are the Sections in Part One: Vocational Patterns in the Natal Chart

  • Introductory Section—6 articles
  • Second House-Eighth House Axis—8 articles
  • Sixth House-Twelfth house Axis—5 articles
  • The Midheaven and Tenth House—7 articles
  • Planets in the Career Sectors—8 articles
  • Tools for Enhancing your Career Potential—6 articles
  • Book Bonus: Building an Astrology Practice.
  • Appendix—Tables to use in Analyzing the Chart

Here are the Sections in Part Two: Transits to the Vocational Sectors

  • Transits from the Inner Planets– 4 articles        
  • Overview of How to Work with Transits—5 articles
  • Slow Moving Transits—5 articles
  • Book Bonus: A Responsible Approach to Handling Clients’ Difficult Transits

Explore the Career Potentials in Your Astrology Chart!

Since the 12 houses, 12 signs, and 10 planets each have many possible expressions, no book can possibly describe them all. Instead, Career Choices and Challenges gives you many tools to use in analyzing a specific chart from a vocational perspective.

It will help you become more conscious of both the positive and the more difficult ways the career placements in your own chart or that of a loved one or client may be used and help you make more informed choices.

Consistently mismanaging the planets and signs in the vocational sectors can bring big trouble or even failure to the person and affect the lives of their loved ones as well. Self-awareness helps avoid self-sabotage and costly mistakes that arise from undesirable expressions of the planets and signs in the career combination.

As with most of my books, this one isn’t just about astrology, because throughout the book I’ll suggest self-help tools to help you tackle the career difficulties described by your chart.

Perks of the Ebook Format

Ebooks have their advantages, making possible some very useful features that hardcopy books cannot do. Here are some you’ll find in this book:

With the PDF format, you can print out sections that pertain specifically to you or your loved ones, creating a permanent reference tool. Another PDF perk is a series of printable summary tables about the qualities associated with the signs, house, and planets to use in chart interpretation.

The PDF format also allows for clickable links to blog articles and internet sites, a resource often used in this book to provide more in-depth information.

You’ll be guided, step by step, in creating templates to analyze the houses, signs, and planets involved in your career picture so you can make the best use of them and avoid the pitfalls. You’ll find lists of the areas of life involved with each house and the qualities of all the signs and planets in the appendix and a link to a downloadable version to work with.

You’ll be able to copy and paste self-inventories that list the positive and the difficult potentials of the career sign, house, and the planets in the combination. If you’re an astrologer, you can create the same self-tests for your clients or students as a service. This can help them become more aware of their strengths and more conscious in avoiding any self-defeating patterns in their work.

 Readers, join me in celebrating this new arrival! Career Choices and Challenges: an Astrological Guide is distributed exclusively on my website,, and is being released worldwide today. You can be among the first to own it!
