The term ‘vocation’ epitomises the quest to find your authentic voice in the world: the work you are meant to do, the work you love. It is greater than emotional security, financial remuneration or worldly success. Your vocation is soulful; a deeply felt longing to be of service, to follow your passion and to live a meaningful life. Vocation is more than a job, a career or a pastime; it is the X-factor that fulfils the urge to be creative and to be employed in purposeful ways. Astrology is an ideal career counsellor as it maps out the paths and patterns of your vocation.
Using astrological symbols and images, Vocation: the Astrology of Career, Creativity and Calling is your guide to considering a more participatory and fulfilling career and lifestyle.

The astrological insights in this book are thorough, considered and imaginative; this creates a very engaging ‘exploration space’ which is sure to invite intuitive clarity in the reader.
Melanie Reinhart, author of Chiron and the Healing Journey
For some what we do as a career to earn a living is the same thing as what we do as our vocational calling and contribution as a member of society; but for others it is different. Using an astrological perspective, learn how to clarify our creative impulse towards a purposeful role in the world within the context of our career.
Demetra George, author of Asteroid Goddesses and Astrology and the Authentic Self
Brian Clark synthesizes the best of the astrological, psychological, and mythopoetic ways of knowing. At a time when technique is ascendant in astrological circles, his work returns us to the rich imaginal realm which nourishes and feeds all good interpretive work. I can think of no one better suited to guide astrologers in our efforts to make the ‘vocatus’ of the Soul discernible to those we would help.
Jason Holley,Astrologer and Psychotherapist
