Astrology for Career Success, subtitled “How to Analyze Career Choices and Timing.” This book by Gayle Geffner, an experienced astrological consultant who has specialized in career counseling, is a significant contribution to “how to” books about astrology. Here you will find detailed case studies about author Gayle Geffner’s clients who gave permission for their career stories, including their astrological counseling process, to be included in this book.
Gayle’s innovative and unique approach, her “at least three charts” method, looks for repeated themes in the horoscope to find opportunity for career change or advancement. Readers will also see demonstrations of how Gayle subtly instills confidence in her clients with positive input even during difficult times.
In the process, you’ll also learn how to use a variety of methods and techniques, as demonstrated with various charts, planets, signs, elements, modes, houses, derivative houses, aspects and midpoints. You’ll study a variety of one, two and three ring charts, including natal, transits, solar and lunar returns, solar arcs, midpoints and even two examples from case studies in which Gayle used the 90 degree dial, a primary tool used in Uranian, or symmetrical, astrology to hone in on details of client’s prospects and timing.
It is only fair to say, to those readers who may have it, that material from Gayle’s earlier book, “Pathways to Success,” is included, but that book was pointed more toward beginning level. “Astrology for Career Success” is pointed specifically toward the thorough analysis needed to do effective counseling with astrology, and includes Gayle’s demonstration of the full array of intermediate to advanced techniques that she uses to prepare for her counseling sessions. You’ll read about more than just one initial session with a client. These case studies involve follow-up sessions over the years, as the clients’ lives and employment or occupations change.
When a current job no longer offers a sense of personal satisfaction, it’s time to make a positive change. This book is not recommended for beginners in the study of astrology, but it offers a good deal to any intermediate student of astrology, both in evaluating his or her own career prospects, and also for study of the various charts and techniques Gayle used in her analysis. It will also be of interest to counseling astrologers who might enjoy reading Gayle’s case studies, and also possibly gain some added benefit from Gayle’s sharing of her experiences.
