Editor's Note: This is Part III in a talk with Astrology Zone's Susan Miller on the astrology of 2013. Here we talk prospects for making a living, in an economy in flux.
Molly Hall: I'd like to get your take on areas of growth in the job market. I'm thinking healing professions and the arts, anything that allows people to have a catharsis, will be in demand.
From Susan Miller: I feel bad, especially when I look at Twitter. I can read a lot of people’s comments fairly quickly because they’re so short and the pain out there….is so palpable. You can feel it.
Well, we look for jobs through all the outer planets, and Neptune in Pisces will definitely help the artist. Definitely! And they’re the ones that have really been suffering because the arts seem to be the first thing that gets cut in any bad economy.
But also Jupiter in Gemini should help the communications industry, and then when it goes into Cancer, the restaurants, hospitality, hotels, the whole Martha Stewart type of culinary arts and anything connected with the home. And maybe even the furniture business.
So you look to where Jupiter is, and that’s where it’s really going to bring in some money. Spas should start to do well, too, because people are so tense. I bought so many spa certificates for Christmas and people seemed to be really happy. You look at your friends, and see how much they’re juggling, so yes, spas, and the wine industry, because Neptune rules liquids.
I think Jupiter in Gemini is probably why American Airlines is going to merge to create the largest airline ever. Because Jupiter makes everything big, so it’s probably going to go through. The airlines will do better. Although I’m not sure if the fares will be better for the rest of us, but they say people are coming back to traveling again.
And that’s one of the sweeter parts of life. I know some people travel for business. It really is nice to get away …They say more people are traveling for Christmas, for vacations, even if they’re not far, they are leaving the house.
I think there are many signs that things are getting better. It’s just so slow. But it was a serious problem, and I knew it (the economy) would be slow…and I think it’s going to be a serious problem all the way to 2015. The recovery will continue but it’s a hard and long process, with the Uranus-Pluto square. It is the way it is. And we just have to put one foot in front of the other.Where are Your Talents?
People have to realize what their best talent is and work with that. These kinds of economies really do shake out your competition. A lot of marginal people fall off, they’re hanging on the limbs of the tree, but you can just hang on for so long.
And it focuses all of us on being really realistic about what our talents are…and focusing in on that. Because you don’t have the luxury of doing several things or not being focused. I always say there are 9 million people in New York and all of them want your job (laughs). That’s an exaggeration, but it’s sort of like that.
You have to realize that there are so many people standing behind you ready to take it. You have to be the best at what you do. And really be serious about it, and put in the effort.Mid-July is Just Golden
Oh, it’s really good. If Saturn is being realistic, and in Scorpio is willing to do the research and the digging, and Neptune is the inspiration, in Pisces, and the imagination. And so you take the idea, and you make it practical through Saturn, and Jupiter is standing there to give you the money.
This is spectacular – we haven’t had anything even close to this. It’s going to be going on this summer, in July particularly, mid-July is just golden. So I think there will be a lot of progress.
Molly Hall: I'm thinking about women, with Jupiter in Cancer, and Mothers having that remedy for what’s ailing us. Not just in the healing professions, but with story, art...
Susan Miller: Yes, to express yourself artistically, that’s actually the best catharsis, and so many writers create blockbusters because they feel. And they don’t even know they’re good writers until they start writing, letting it come out. Sometimes it just comes right out of your fingers and you don’t know where it came from. But if you don’t try, you’re not going to experience that.
This water trine (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) is very creative and very emotional and intuitive. It’s just the opposite of everything that’s been prevalent until now. You know, it’s been so digital, electronic, intellectual and scientific, and the emphasis has definitely been on that side. And this gives balance, and a softening, a human face to things and could spark new ideas. Because when we look at things through a different prism, it looks very different.
I think there could be breakthroughs this summer. Even in the way we (United States) handle the budget and any question will be looked at from a different perspective with this nice golden triangle.
