Enhance Your Resume With Astrology
Dell Horoscope|November 2017

If you just aren’t happy in your job and you are beginning a search for a new position, your resumé is a powerful vehicle for getting you that all-important initial interview. Astrology can help you to identify the best things to say about yourself, aside from the details of education, experience, publications, and professional memberships.

When you say, “I am the right person for this job because…” you want the rest of the sentence to reflect your individuality. This article presents ways to identify key personality traits to emphasize when applying for a job. Your Sun-Sign describes your most positive career assets quickly and clearly.

Life is not about changing our habits to satisfy the next employer. It is about choosing to emphasize one set of behaviors over another throughout our lives. Out of this, character is born. Describing your character traits to a stranger is risky, but it will put you in a class by yourself in that pile of resumés in the Human Resources department of your favorite job prospect. It also allows you to state the one thing that is most important to you in a job. That way, the prospective employer knows at least one of your requirements from the outset.

Sun-Signs indicate the primary psychological type. There is a proliferation of literature about Carl Jung’s typology and there are tests to determine which one is your primary type. But you really don’t need tests, as astrology provides a simple method for figuring this out.

The table of signs, elements, and psychological types that accompanies this article is really all you need.

The elements work in pairs: Air and Water (Thinking vs. Feeling) form one pair of opposites; Earth and Fire (Sensation vs. Intuition) form the other pair. When one type is dominant, the paired function is relatively absent from consciousness. So if you are an intuitive type, the less conscious component of your personality is sensation, and vice versa. We are all familiar with the thinking type who can barely admit to having any feelings!

DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF?

You may feel your type does not fit with what you know about yourself. This sometimes happens because you grew up in a family that placed higher value on another psychological type, or you may have a compelling interest in a particular subject that has led you to develop another type over the one that is naturally strongest for you. Nevertheless, the primary approach to life is through the Sun-Sign. Hence, we can learn a lot from exploring the positive and negative facets of our own Sun-Sign element.

THE ELEMENTS AS INDICATORS OF WORK STYLE

FIRE—INTUITIVE

Intuitive types are focused on the possibilities inherent in an idea. They take pleasure in considering the future. In fact, they are often relatively unaware of their immediate physical surroundings. They are the inventors, artists, and forward thinkers. They can conceive of an idea long before the means of achieving it are available. They pursue what the world is not yet prepared for. They tend to jump to conclusions and may need to slow down to consider steps the rest of us need to get from Point A to Point B.

The intuitive type fits into the contemporary educational system rather well because they relate today’s question to tomorrow’s answer, today’s work to tomorrow’s reward. In addition, they are able to store up today’s information for the future usefulness it may have.

Intuitive types are very inventive. They are willing to sacrifice the pleasure of the moment in the hope of greater future achievement. They are often restless and crave inspiration. Because they thrive in situations where getting to the answer is important, they are good at problem-solving. Careers in the creative arts, religious inspiration, and scientific discovery all suit the intuitive type.

Sometimes, working at home as a writer, I feel overwhelmed by pieces of paper, large and small. The same is true of pens and reference books. When the stacks are tall enough to cast shadows, I grow claustrophobic and flee to the public library. There I can work in a spacious, orderly, and ideal if somewhat sterile world.

Question: Which dorm mate should I choose?Date: July 23, 2017Time: 10:24:00 A.M. E.D.T.Place: West Hartford, CTThis question came from my client’s daughter who is beginning her first year of college and will live on campus. She asked: “I have a dorm room at the college I will attend this fall. Two of my girlfriends are also attending the same college. They both want to room with me, but I can only take one as a roommate. Which one should I choose?”I asked her which friend requested to room with her first. This a very important question because it establishes the houses that rule each friend.

Soul - Centered Astrology - Scorpio: Sign Of Death But The Key To A Better Life

As we awaken to the realization of the need to align ourselves to the reality of the Soul (and aid and counsel others toward this same orientation), we seek out ways to implement a greater measure of the Will-to-Good into our lives. One of these is an attitude of self-acceptance in that we do not consistently judge ourselves. Instead, we strive to observe what in us resists and inhibits a greater flowering of goodwill both in ourselves and in others. Often this is based on a sense of separation from life manifesting in ego-centricity and projected expectations of behavior both on the part of others as well as ourselves. Giving ourselves up to the sense of the One while at the same time actively doing our part in the One Work is fundamental to the reduction of stress and the implementation of Joy in our lives.

The Astro - View Scotland

The Titan Prometheus was a pretty arrogant fellow in my view. According to Greek myth, he stole the fire of knowledge from the gods, hidden in a fennel stalk, to give to humanity for our enlightenment. Did he consult any humans beforehand to see if we wanted such a double-edged gift? To the best of my knowledge, he did not. He thought he knew best. For this blatant act of hubris—i.e., thinking you are as smart as the gods—he was savagely punished by Zeus, their king. You probably know the story, but it bears repeating just to remind us that hubris is not a good idea. Chained to a rock, Prometheus had his liver pecked out by an eagle on a daily basis; it regrew overnight—the punishment never ended.

Christmas And Soul - Centered Gifts For The Signs

The search for self—the process of individuation—is not a fad. Certainly, there are processes, weekend intensives, and specialized spiritual products and programs that come and go. We could say that there are a number of outer forms for the search for self that are indeed trendy, glamorous, and faddish, but that is the nature of all forms of social popularity in general. The essential search for the key to the expansion of consciousness and the resultant transformations in our attitudes and lifestyles are certainly not faddish. There is a Path, and that Path is the Goal; our job is getting There, and I assure you that there is a “There” to get to.—AO

December's Planets And You

As loyal readers know, eclipses are the most powerful energizers in astrology. I usually begin an eclipse analysis about three months prior to its occurrence because the general rule is that Solar Eclipses begin to heat up the degrees in the zodiac about 90 days in advance. An example from last spring, however, demonstrates that this time span is simply a guideline.

There is no group more maligned by the American people than politicians, which is odd when we consider that politicians and politics are a natural byproduct of the democracy of which we are so proud. If you want to avoid politicians currying your favor and promising you things they can’t deliver, perhaps you should go live under a dictatorship. There the leaders just tell you what to do.
