All charts are beautiful, but this one from a drawn-home filmmaker resonates remarkably with me this moment.
I work in film and television. I produced a short film in November and have been keeping my eyes open for a full-time associate producing job since the fall. Sadly, the well has been dry since the late summer/early fall and I have resorted to being dependent on my parents again. I am a Scorpio with Taurus rising, so I get that Saturn recently left my sign.
I want two things for my career: a full-time job so I don’t have the stress of freelance life (never knowing where your next job is coming from, never being able to save or travel) and some place where I can grow and develop. I am working on my own scripts and my own films, but I do want a steady income/job. What do you see for the future and how can I keep myself from going crazy with money worries in the meantime?

Dear Freelance No More,
Time is a river – at all points a single thing – thus you are always and forever depending on your parents as an upstream spring source. That said, absolve yourself; you are a child of parents fated forever to deserve their love; then, absolve your parents by reminding yourself that your parents faced your beginnings with the same faces that they now turn towards ultimate inevitabilities that you become sensitive to as you age.
Your sense of humor will be most appreciated as I imagine that your presence – adult, striving, trustful, strong, full of promise – should be the least of their worries. If they drone about past achievements or potentials, it’s because they seek to encourage or are themselves encouraged, or seek your perspective perhaps without having the language to express their own need of counsel to their child. As a parent of two darling little children, both Pisces Moon like you, I know that P-Moon healing counsel is never in short supply if I would only unwind my daily apparatus to stop and listen to the little ones. I’m sure your parents require your presence now and you must figure out how.
Next, absolve yourself of being, and in being in a western world where one now dodges the collapsing edifices built by the intrinsically narrow-minded and dreadfully short-sighted calculations of a strand of humanity that has yet to grasp the all-supporting power of humility. Humans invented money as an instrument of trust, to be backed by tangible wealth (Taurus, The Bull). Money is thus best expressed as an expedient proxy for a transaction of cumbersome tangibles.
The disease of money today, the lie, exists not in the money itself but in the “why” and “how” of the people sourcing and transacting it, and their confusion of “value” with “price” in all their human elaborations. No one is spared from the maelstrom, NO ONE.
Returning to you, FLNM, I don’t know that you’ve ever imagined your life as film-worthy, but I would beg you – at the sight of your AMAZING chart, which speaks of no small acumen in the arts – to film yourself sitting down at the puzzle of your career if only for a few minutes. You will find that your identity is specifically appropriate to your generation and that your story resonates with others more than you realize, “enough to base a movie on”. See it now.
Although Saturn has passed through your Sun Sign, transiting all of your planets in Scorpio via conjunction, one-by-one, arc-minute-by-angsty-arc-minute, you are coming up to your first Saturn return – so read up on that, and do slow down enough to count the minutes as they tock. Everyone runs from The Ringed One but I testify that my life has seen both great victory and great transformation during Saturn’s trial if only in learning to paint by numbers. I would also point you towards investigating the nature of being “the favored child” (you or sibling) and of breaking with past precociousness for the sake of future emotional stability. Finally, meditate on making only promises that keep themselves. This includes promises made to yourself.
All: I can be reached for one-off, astrologically-skewed career advice by sending your birth date, time, and city, along with a BRIEF but DETAILED question, to email@example.com. Like me on Facebook, or don’t.
You may find that my response is a bit off-kilter but I must assume that you seek a vampire-with-his-diq-in-an-electrical-socket perspective by contacting me so do be careful what you wish for. JupitMoonyVenutian career advice is around the corner, to the left and two doors down, you’re welcome. You should also know that although I mightn’t mention your placements explicitly I do frame the language of the reading with your chart in mind.
