Did you know that the Moon’s placement in your natal chart provides valuable insight into your career needs, desires and talents? These driving forces may have been pushed aside in the process of meeting financial needs and social pressures. However the passing of time always reveals that the qualities of your natal Moon must be honoured.
A vocational profile based on a person’s Moon’s sign, its links to other planets and other facets of its position in the chart, provides valuable clues about the career path a person is born to follow in life.
Here we focus on the element of your Moon sign. Hopefully this information will trigger moments of insight that help you attune to your vocational path.
Traditional astrology assigns each of the twelve zodiac signs to one of the four elements: fire, earth, air and water. These basically represent four different states of awareness or types of consciousness. So the element of your Moon sign can reveal a great deal about the way you function in career and work contexts.
The Moon in a fire sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius)
If your Moon is in a fire sign you need a career that utilises your natural initiative and confident, action-oriented approach to life. In general terms, you are not at your best when tied to a desk throughout the working day. You thrive on movement, independence and opportunities to be spontaneous and express yourself freely.
Often there’s flair for leadership and exploring new territory with fire-sign Moons. However, there may be times when you need to watch a tendency to become a bit bossy, forceful or impatient with others.
The Moon in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn)
If your Moon is in an earth sign you need a career that utilises your practical, down-to-earth, patient approach. You thrive in environments where you are appreciated for your dependability and your talent for attending to details that contribute to greater efficiency.
There’s a need for a certain amount of predictability with the earth signs, so you may not feel emotionally secure in careers that involve an unstable flow of work, changing routines or inconsistent financial remuneration. However, you may need to strengthen your ability to step out of your comfort zone from time to time so that things don’t become too dull and uninspiring.
The Moon in an air sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius)
If your Moon is in an air sign you need a career where you can function in the world of thought, communication and ideas. The air element is naturally oriented to social activities, so it’s very important that you relate to others regularly through your work.
Air-sign Moons often thrive in positions where they can provide detached observation or explore abstract ideas. Unless there is plenty of water elsewhere in your chart, you may not be comfortable in careers with deep emotional involvement such as counselling or social work.
The Moon in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces)
Water represents the receptive, feeling-based mode of consciousness. If your Moon is in a water sign you may flourish in careers requiring a sensitive, caring, empathic approach. You may even be interested in therapeutic or healing work of some kind. Water-sign Moons also have strong intuitive and imaginative abilities.
You need a work environment relatively free of disturbing or depressing influences, as you are easily affected by negative energies. It’s also important that your daily routines include periods of quiet reflection.
