The following post is an excerpt from What the Hell Is Going On in My Life? – Using Your Birthdate to Find Answers About Relationships, Career, Money, Sex & Health by Larry Schwimmer. During Saturn’s transit, you are accountable for whatever career, status, and reputation you’ve built. You’re ready to harvest the rewards for all your hard work and efforts to attain your goal. Now is the time when your diligence and preparation pay off and you achieve excellent results; or whatever results you deserve. Do you remember those long hours and months of working overtime, not seeing much of your kids, and your spouse giving you the “evil eye” as you rolled in after 8 p.m. each night? Or, do you remember those weeks or months when you found a way to take leisurely lunches, leave work early, and do only what was required? This is when “the chickens come home to roost.” Be aware that, if you haven’t worked in good faith or improperly prepared yourself, you may encounter great difficulties now. In fact, old astrologers had a saying: “Saturn in the 10th is a time of a rise or fall.” In other words, during this period of your life, you’ll receive cosmic payback for the good and bad deeds you’ve done. No one is perfect, so most of us experience elements of both the positive and negative in our own personal career harvest. Don’t forget that one of Saturn’s lessons and benefits is re-evaluating your actions so you can let go of unproductive ways in favor of more beneficial behaviors that will improve you. That means, for example, if you’ve been a slacker at work, taking long lunches, leaving early, and doing the minimum required, you have the opportunity to re-dedicate yourself toward doing a more conscientious job. Now is when you can discover what work you’re really committed to doing in your life. Saturn’s energies help you in this regard, because you will receive feedback from the outer world, be it the public or your employer, about your job performance. The response you get will help you realistically evaluate your career accomplishments to see if you’re doing the work you’re meant to do. During this time, if you’ve had any illusions about your talents and abilities, you’ll receive some sort of objective evaluation you can use to decide whether to continue in your career or job (or consider a new one). Consider these assessments:
  • “Based on your poor work habits and lackadaisical attitude, you’ll be on probation for the next three months.”
  • “You’re lack of patience makes it clear why you haven’t been an effective teacher.”
  • “I’m not confident you know how to lead others, therefore, I can’t recommend you for promotion.”
  • “Because of your creative culinary skills we’d like you to be our new chef.”
  • “Based on your dedicated efforts to help our department make the sales forecast, I’m approving you for a 20 percent raise.”
  • “With your superior grammar and writing skills you’ll make an excellent editor.”
  • “Because of your leadership skills and ability to motivate others, I’m recommending you for promotion.”
Saturn’s influence demands that you critically evaluate your achievements in your career and outer world in order to decide whether to continue or change your direction.

The following post is an excerpt from What the Hell Is Going On in My Life? – Using Your Birthdate to Find Answers About Relationships, Career, Money, Sex & Health by Larry Schwimmer. When Jupiter enters your 10th House, you receive great opportunities to expand or improve your career, profession, social status, or reputation. This is usually a fortunate time when you can make great progress in your occupation or business and achieve successful results. You may find yourself walking around the world with a confident swagger and a spring in your step. You’ll feel courageous, enthusiastic, and have a very positive attitude that everyone around you notices. This is a time when you’re happy because you’re pursuing the work you were meant to do and your career climbs to new heights. It’s when your business expansion efforts pay off big time. In fact, any career moves that you make are destined to produce results and strike pay dirt in the long run. This is a year of your life when you should be out in the public: networking, meeting people, and making contacts with those who’ll be valuable in helping you achieve success in your career or business. Often in life, you work hard, talk to people, and reach out and ask for help, but you get no results (sometimes, no response). You might be tempted to say: “Hellloooo… is anyone there?” It just seems like the world is not acknowledging your existence; it's only throwing roadblocks your way. It’s frustrating because, despite your earnest efforts, requests, and pleadings, you can’t seem to make a breakthrough to accomplish your goals. However, get ready for the opposite effect. Here are some of positive responses you may receive during the year that Jupiter transits your 10th House:
  • “We’ve been looking for someone with your talent to join our company. You’re hired!”
  • “After interviewing all the candidates, the board has decided to offer you the presidency.”
  • “We’re downsizing and re-organizing the company, but we’d like you to remain.”
  • “Congratulations on starting your own business. We’d like to be your first customer.”
  • “We want you to head the philosophy department at the university.”
These are examples of statements that a person might hear when Jupiter transits their 10th House of career and reputation. Don’t forget that luck is not only defined in terms of a big job offer, pay raise, a large product order, or a civic award for meritorious achievement. After all, you can’t always tell bad luck from good luck at first glance. What, at first appears as bad luck, may turn out to be good luck in the long run. Because of Jupiter’s beneficent influences your good fortune may be that you are saved from bad fortune. Consider these examples:
  • Not fired after making a costly mistake.
  • Not laid off from your company when other people are.
  • The company that didn’t hire you goes bankrupt.
A Jupiter transit can make you feel expansive and grandiose where you are only looking for “big things” to happen, so it’s good to manage your expectations when you have this transit. After all, one person might consider himself lucky to find a $1 bill on the street; another would insist that he’d have to find a $100 bill to feel lucky. While Jupiter’s energies generally bring good luck and great opportunity, avoid the tendency to have such grand ideas of what luck means that you lose all sense of proportion or gratitude for the fortune you’ve been blessed with. Often luck brings you opportunity. But what you do with that opportunity is up to you. However, you must be proactive to take full advantage of the luck, fortune, and opportunity Jupiter brings to your career during this year. In fact, you must take steps to reach out in an extroverted way, even if it’s not your normal style, because it will pay off during this year. Here are some actions that clients, who wanted to advance their careers, have taken during this transit:
  • I had one client agree to a commitment of having one lunch a week with a new contact; another said she'd make 10 phone calls a day to different organizations asking if they would be interested in sponsoring her workshop to their membership
  • Another person agreed to consult his weekly newspaper to attend three networking events at such places as his local chamber of commerce, country club, and church
  • One job seeker agreed to network each day on LinkedIn, attend job fairs, and call old bosses and colleagues on a daily basis until she found a new job
  • Someone who wanted to buy a franchise business agreed to research five franchise operations a week and attend a national franchise show to learn of various opportunities.
These are just a few action plans. But each of these clients achieved their career goals.

The following post is an excerpt from What the Hell Is Going On in My Life? – Using Your Birthdate to Find Answers About Relationships, Career, Money, Sex & Health by Larry Schwimmer. Imagine taking a long trip in your car. You’re not totally sure where you’re going, but you’re thinking you can figure it out once you get on the road. Then, as you drive for a few hours you start wondering, “Maybe I’m not exactly sure where I’m headed.” Unfortunately, there are no places to stop and ask for help. Eventually, you realize that you’re lost. Amazingly, at that very moment, a genie magically appears in the passenger seat next to you. He tells you to open your glove compartment, where you’ll find a road map with specific instructions, including the dates when you will get to each stop on your journey. The map is your assurance that you’ll get to your destinations on time. As an astrologer, just like the genie, I’ll show you how to find your road map, plus use it to guide you to where you want to go. However, the way to get to where you want to go in life is by the decisions you make. I’ll show you how to make your decisions at a time when they will be most successful. Your road map to making successful decisions is sitting in a file drawer in your home, a safety deposit box, or in the archives of the hospital where you were born. It is called your birth certificate, and it has your precise date, place, and time of birth. All you have to do is find it and I’ll show you how you can turn your birth information into a map that shows the major events of your life, and the best times to make those events successful. I’ll show you how to use astrology for decision-making. The good news: You do NOT need to have prior knowledge of astrology. This book will explain everything you need to know to understand the changes you’re experiencing in your life, the decisions you may be required to make, and how to make them at the perfect time so they will be successful. The use of astrology is to reveal choices to you – not to make your choice for you. In that sense, as my brilliant astrology colleague Ray Merriman says: “It is a choice-revealer, not a choice-decider.” Your own free will can always be brought to bear on any situation you face in life. You are the master of your own destiny.

A Good Time & A Bad Time To Start A Job!

Suppose, for example, after interviewing for a new job – you receive an offer. Your new employer calls you on the telephone, giving you a choice of two potential starting dates. You can start your new job in July; a time when your astrological chart indicates is a bad one because you’ll work hard for little recognition and great frustration; or you can start in August, a positive date when your astrological chart says you will be successful, well received, and have opportunities for advancement. Assuming your new employer gave you these two choices, which date would you choose to start your new job? Therein lies the practical value of using astrology for decision-making. It can give you the perfect time to make your decision a successful one that will benefit you. Of course, the choice is always yours. Yet, while career decisions are important, you can also use astrology for decision-making in many other areas of your life.
