Kill Your Boss Slowly And Painfully, Using Astrology!

Okay, maybe not kill... but it would be nice if you had a better job, wouldn't it?

A lot of clients come to me with concerns about their work and income. One thing I've discovered over the years is that despite what you may think, pay rarely equals job satisfaction in and of itself (ask any astrologer!). And of course, it's rare to hear from clients when everything is going great.\

I've received a few panicky e-mails of late from people concerned about their careers, specifically because of that The September 11 2007 eclipse. Admittedly, Britney Spears is not helping.

But consider the case of Leslie Feist (February 13, 1976, time unknown, Calgary Canada). A few years ago she was a stranger in a strange land -- selling albums in France and producing excellent work, but not receiving the recognition she deserved. A few years before that she was sleeping on the couch of a friend of mine (seriously!).

Now comes the eclipse. Transiting Jupiter is conjunct her natal Neptune, transiting Mars is conjunct her natal Mars and trine her natal Sun, and hey presto -- the video for her song "1 2 3 4" is used in the new iPod Nano ads. In terms of PR for an artist, this is nothing short of a coup. No one had heard of "The Vines" before an iPod landed on them.

Remember this today, Monday, when the work load is getting you down. You may have been handed all the tools you need to mercilessly kill your... I mean, realize your career dreams.

I've liked Feist for a long time now, and this seems as good a time as any to introduce you to her song "Mushaboom." Happy Monday!

But in the meantime we've got it hard
Second floor living without a yard
It may be years until the day
My dreams will match up with my pay...

I have been working so little this last couple of months (July was a write-off after mangling my hip playing frisbee after a few too many beers). August covering shifts for another employee...then family time...then schoolio. I still keep saying "One day I'll leave my job" and then realize that school will keep me from it for 2 weeks at a time. LOL! God, I'm useless sometimes when it comes to details!!
I'll be out of a job for about 6 months before I catch on, at this rate of thought-absorption.
