Your Secret Self
By trusting your quick and intuitive insight, you can often display a stoic wisdom gleaned from experience. As your natural leadership is revealed through self-mastery, you may not be living up to your true potential if you find yourself continually in menial positions. Dramatic and creative, your strength is in the dedication you show to a purpose or goal. It is therefore better for you to think big and aim for the top.
One of the possible hindrances to your achievement is a tendency to overtax your nervous system through being skeptical and worried. This can also isolate you from others, so you need to have faith in yourself and your abilities and make the most of your original and inventive ideas. Usually competitive and daring, you can be witty and spontaneous and thus inspire others with your talents. There is also a more hidden part of your nature that can manifest itself as a desire for solitude or self-analysis.
PRIMARY STAR’S INFLUENCE
Vindemiatrix’s influence indicates that although you possess a quick mind, at times you are impulsive or indiscreet. This star bestows concentration, logical thinking, and the ability to come straight to the point. You tend to approach problems methodically and persist until you resolve them. Vindemiatrix, however, also suggests that you can be obstinate or unyielding.
Linked to your Sun’s degree, this star imparts leadership ability, pride, and a drive to accomplish and be recognized. You often conceal your cleverness and have a tendency to make insubstantial statements. This star also indicates that success comes mainly after effort, and it suggests a tendency to worry over money and failure even when there is no need to.
Work & Vocation
Intuitive and original, with a flair for socializing, you have a talent for mixing business and pleasure. Although you enjoy working with others, you prefer to take the lead rather than follow in others’ footsteps. With diplomacy and executive skill, you usually occupy executive positions as a manager, organizer, or supervisor. Alternatively, you may decide to be self-employed. Having an understanding of people’s needs suggests that you may choose to be of service to the public as a financial advisor or lawyer. An appreciation for beauty and the arts implies that you may run an agency or art gallery. If inspired by higher learning, you may take up theosophy, philosophy, or astrology.
