Over the past few years of my adult life, I have made terrible career and life decisions. I’m supposed to be the ‘brainy’ one, the one that should be doing GREAT things with her life. But it hasn’t worked out that way.
First, I dropped out of school due to bullying. I tried to go back to studying… but my heart was not in it. So I joined the armed forces as an engineer… but even though I was pretty darn good at the job, I just was not happy. I realized I was just trying to make my parents happy and proud, and so I dropped out.
There have been many other career paths that I have failed at. It’s getting to a point where I don’t want to try anymore. I feel completely lost. I have no direction in my life and no sense of purpose. I do try to come up with new ideas to make it all seem worthwhile, like trying to get my degree or maybe setting up my own business. But I just can’t seem to make any of these things happen. All I do is dream.
I’m lost and sad with no one to turn to. Please help!
I agree you are a brainy one. You’re twenty-three years old and you just laid out your whole birth chart! Your whole character, I mean. Everything you need to know about you is in your post. Most people reach thirty, forty, or even fifty and still have no idea who they are.
Now here’s my advice. SLOW DOWN. Slow way down, and take each of these things one by one. It’s like this:
You’ve frantic because you’ve identified all these parts of your personality and they don’t just automatically gel together. Imagine a body moving herky-jerky style as opposed to all the muscle groups working together to create movement that is smooth and flowing. For some people this comes easy. But others have to train and you’re one of them. So let me take this apart for you.
- You have Cancer in your chart and your parents matter. You also need to hole up now and then.
- You have Capricorn in your chart and you need to achieve. You are also inordinately hard on yourself.
- You have a twelfth house moon. You need to dream.
Now go up there and read your post. Can you see how these sides of you are in a state of chaos? They are. And you’re going to have to slow way, WAY down if you want to untangle this.
Your ultimate solution will respect all sides of yourself. Like this:
Go to work at a job with status (Capricorn)… call Mom when you get home (Cancer)… and then unplug the phone, turn on the music and drift (Twelfth house Moon).
You’re brilliant for a reason. It’s so you can figure this out. And your dreams can help. You can do it, and nothing is more classy than that.
