Letting Astrology Guide You

Just about everyone wants to know what their purpose in life is, and for many people, this includes trying to find the right career path. After all, most people spend a large chunk of their lives working. A fulfilling job can make life more enjoyable. Luckily, astrology may be able to provide some guidance when you’re trying to chart your ideal career path. To do this, you will need access to your natal chart.

Your natal chart shows you where the stars were when you were born. Most people know their sun sign, but if you don’t — or if you’re unsure of your other placements — you can find them here. It may also be worth reaching out to a professional Astrology Psychic for an in-depth interpretation of your chart.

Where To Look in Your Natal Chart

Pay attention to your sun, moon, and rising (ascendant) signs, as they are key to most astrological readings. That said, when using astrology to learn more about a potential career path, it’s also important to examine your North Node, Midheaven, Tenth House, Second House, and Saturn sign to get the most detail. Combined, these different parts of your chart can help you understand what the stars say about your career path.

While the sun, moon, and rising signs are generally well-known, here are what these lesser-known elements from your chart can tell you about your ideal career path.

North Node

The North Node is your North Star, so to speak. It shows you your karmic destiny. It also reveals the essence of the work and career path that may be best suited to your highest self.


The Midheaven shows you your mission, or your end goal, in life. It’s also an important indicator of how far up you may rise in your career path and what your reputation might be once you’re there. It reveals your legacy, giving you a sense of what you’ll be remembered for.

Tenth House

The Tenth House is the house of career, and it gives you a sense of what your career path and long-term goals might be, as well as the skills you were given to achieve them. It can also hint at any potential fame in your future.

Second House

The Second House shows you what your personal values are, and it hints at how you make money. Since personal values can strongly affect a person’s career path, this can be used in conjunction with the knowledge granted by your Tenth House to give you a more complete picture.

Saturn Sign

Saturn is the great taskmaster, which gives it a tremendous effect on your life — especially when it comes to your career path. Working with Saturn can help you see what obstacles you may encounter and how you can overcome them. Saturn helps you learn some much-needed lessons, and if you apply that knowledge diligently, you are sure to be rewarded.

What the Stars Say About Your Career Path

Now that you know which parts of your chart to look at, here are the associations that each sign has to a person’s career path. Examine them in the context of the categories above; you can either interpret their meanings yourself or you can seek professional help from an astrologer for maximum accuracy.
