The Life at Work
Judi Vitale

Judi Vitale

How do you or your clients behave at work, and how much of that is dictated by your chart? Probably, a lot of on-the- job unhappiness arises from a lack of consciousness about what is best for us. The birth chart (traditional as well as on the 90-degree dial) can provide clues about what a person will be most gratified by, especially whether they are best suited to be an employer, an employee, a freelancer or an entrepreneur. From there, you can develop your own way of offering career counseling through astrology.

Afflictions to Venus cause a deep disturbance to the sense of our own worth and value.

Shedding Some Light on the Sun: Illuminating Solar Potentials
