A man told me that he grew up being told he had a calling in life. He was taught that he had a vocation and he believed this.
Because he believed this, he sought to discover what his calling might be. This is different than growing up being told you should be what you want to be.
If I were given a choice, I’d opt to be raised with the belief my life had a meaningful purpose. I’d want to be encouraged to find out what that purpose was. 9th house. Seeker.
There’s nothing more satisfying than finding your true calling in life. This is why I think it’s worth making an effort to ascertain what you’re designed to do.
Astrologically, Liz Greene gives sees the Sun as the indicator or a person’s vocation in her book, “Apollo’s Chariot : The Astrological Sun”. I agree, but I think Jupiter is involved as well. Each of us is part of larger picture!
Years ago, I used to write (true) stories. I loved to write them and people loved to read them but as it turned out, it was not my vocation. I’m meant to be an astrologer, and specifically to counsel people. I hold a chart in my hand and I can feel things click into place. It’s a gift that can’t be denied.
I love astrology and consulting even if the price I pay to be one is quite high. But it doesn’t matter if it would be my first choice of profession. I am designed for it, mentally, emotionally and physically. It’s my true vocation, which I feel goes beyond my ego (sun).
Have you found your calling in life? Is there something you’re really good at?
