What can I be good at? What should I do? What is my calling?
Instructors: Faye Blake-Cossar and Judith Holloway
10 weeks beginning on January 15
From 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PST Sundays
Whether we are 5 or 50, we can be faced with the question of “what do I want to do when I grow up?” We usually have a better sense of what we don’t want than where we might fit. But using the techniques of vocational astrology, you can gain insight into your unique areas of opportunity. Students will create their own vocational profile as they learn how valuable a tool this can be for their themselves and their clients.
There is something very powerful about learning from someone who has done the walk, done the talk, studied and thought about it all and found a new way of implementing the tried and true. Faye Cossar's methods are simple enough to remember for a lifetime yet practical and provoking enough to make impact and have true vocational value for both you and your client. Being taught by the author of this very practical and clever approach to vocational analysis was a real treat.
I loved the visceral learning component of this course brought forth by dialogue with Faye and Judith and the great set of peers about the huge set of experience brought forth by Faye, Judith's traditional and analytical approach and the personal experience of the students. I found this 'hand's on' approach to learning ways to discern vocational strengths, blocks and preferences from a chart extremely useful. The worst part about this course for me was that it had to come to an end.

About a third of our lives are spent working. What most of us want is not just a job, but something that can utilize our talents and bring us satisfaction. The seeds of our personality, proclivities, likes and dislikes can be found in the natal chart. Using vocational analysis, you can discover whether being your own boss is a good option, what types of work are most satisfying, and what issues you may encounter in your work environment. The video below gives an introduction to Vocational Astrology and some of the items covered in this course.
When it comes to choosing a career, knowing your strengths as well as weaknesses gives you a leg up in today’s competitive environment. Please join Faye Cossar and Judith Holloway this fall for a 10-week in-depth course that shows you can use vocational astrology to dialog with your client and develop a vocational profile that will help them discover their passion.
I cannot over-recommend E550. Faye and Judith gifted us their technique, enthusiasm, and responsiveness at every turn while sincerely empowering us to discover our own methodologies and uses for the material. In my experience, Astrology instructors are prone to reiteration and either inflexibility or lack of focus. This course did not suffer from these. I am an advocate, both for the sound insight into the field Vocational Astrology and the hands-on approach to chart reading, but foremost, for the thoughtfulness and dedication I felt for our learning.
