When it comes to finding a fulfilling and satisfying job, one would have so many factors to consider before finally deciding on what their career calling is.
In my previous article of ‘The Ideal Dream Jobs For Twelve Zodiacs‘,
I listed the types of careers that are best suited for each zodiac, based on their archetypes and energies that surround in them.
You also can read more from ‘Astrological Guide To Choosing A Satisfying Career‘
where I discussed about the different ways to get closer to a career that is most suitable for you, and one which can bring out the best of your talents and personal development.
The most recommended and fastest way to discover the messages your career houses have for you, is to engage in the help of a professional astrologer, and get a feel of what he or she has to say after reading your chart.
Another excellent way is to learn about Astrology and discover your career houses. As Dane Rudhyar said, “Astrology is a language. Once you understand the language, the sky speaks to you.” And the above 2 articles will be a good start!
When it comes to Astrology, we are very familiar with zodiac signs and the planets they carry. There is also another element at play, which is to understand the significance of a particular house, so that we have clues to how best to function in them.
Finding Your Career Calling – Your Resources House (THE SECOND HOUSE)
Houses represent the significant aspects of our lives. There are altogether twelve houses (read more) and each one represents a part of us – our relationship, our wealth, our career, resources, intellectual, partners we are prone to attract, our academic intelligence, our creativity etc.
REVEAL YOUR CAREER CALLING THROUGH YOUR CAREER HOUSES (Part 1)
The 2nd house (known as the ‘wealth house/resources vault) governs areas that made up of our self-esteem, values, our personal belongings and possessions. This is a house of sustenance and describing our survival instincts and needs.
It is also our first wealth and resources house. The 2nd house speaks about our level of personal fulfillment and self-worth through our materialistic gains, and the way how we accept them and how they satisfy our inner desires when we go about acquiring them. This house talks about how we materialised our energies and turning them into something tangible that we hold dear and possess.
