Plutonic Uranian Career Advice January 22

Dark Moon Pluto Protocol

Hello All,
All charts are beautiful, but this one from a drawn-home filmmaker resonates remarkably with me this moment.

Dear PUCA,

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?

Best,
Freelance No More

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 plutonicuranian@gmail.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.

Hi Everyone,

This was the answer to my question. Love reading people’s thoughts on it. Ironic as I’m currently in a battle with a potential employer over what was discussed and what I’m getting paid for.
Looking forward to reading more from PUCA and to all of my fellow freelancers, I’m having a glass of wine for you tonight!

Such words of wisdom PU: ‘built on narrow-minded and dreadfully shortsighted calculations of a stand of humanity that has yet to grasp the all supporting power of humility’. ‘Confusion of ‘value’ with ‘price’.
So well said, so true.
As freelance myself, it is often feast or famine. A challenge for budget balancing, however my luck so often pulls me through (and i can always live on brown rice & veggies 🙂 but it can sometimes be a baitch having champagne tastes on a beer budget.
But we have the sun in the morning and the stars at night…..

My career and finances right now feel like I’m walking through sludge, I’m not feeling the momentum, but it’s supposed to be epic right now….maybe something is building? I am doing continuing education hours to renew my practicing license and it’s like pulling teeth for me to sit down and do it. It’s hanging over my head, but I’m procrastinating on a level that I’ve never procrastinated before. I’m feeling stuck in last year….. 2014 residue…. can’t shake it, not feeling like I’m moving forward at all. I mean, Uranus is transiting my 10th, still not far from my natal… Read more »

Again, really loving PUCA’s words. I feel like the quality of the posts just instantly increases when he’s around. I need me some more Plutonic -Uranian Virgos in my life dangit. Keeps my Mars in check.

That is certainly some food for thought for the questioneer! Interesting take on the part about being of use for the parents in some way. and yes, lots of people can relate to his predicament. Best of luck!

Dear Freelance No More, I feel PUCA is so accurate with this comment: “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”. I’m in my late fifties, just about to finish a degree (because I was made redundant 5 years ago this month). I did it because I knew I had to look at myself as a business; that I had to learn some skills so I could create a business from within myself. However, I’m not feeling so confident… Read more »

Great comment on a great post here. I really resonated with this and myself identified, experienced, and am undergoing things mentioned here. One huge thing I realized that one of my greatest loss/failure has ended up being one of my biggest blessings. Couldn’t see it for years. Good luck FLNM.

MzB, thank you for your kind words! I’m looking through all these responses again, and though I know we all come here for the amazing astrology (Hi Mystic!) I’ve always felt so supported knowing there are like-minded thinkers out there. I sent this response to my Mum and she loved it. Before the freelance fuckery of this afternoon, I actually had an amazing meeting with someone who has great connections in the film business and we are forging ahead with our ideas to create stories that are centered around women. One story that I want to create is actually about… Read more »

Hi Julia, I’m very glad you found my response helpful and it’s good to hear that areas of possibility are opening up for you. I don’t know which country you live in, but I’m Downunder. Yes, the interview with my daughter was so enlightening, especially regarding her views on the feminist movement that affected my generation, and how young women view things now. I made my daughters laugh when I told them how I got hauled in front of my boss when, as a secretary, I wore trousers to work. This was in the City of London in 1981!!! In… Read more »

One of my artist fantasies is, along the lines of “being john malcovich” would be to be inside the head of some people as they do their thing. To witness the machinations as they happen to see the chart and the symbols and mythos that fed the reading in the language of the person who makes art. I want to know how often vangogh stopped to make coffee , if he cried after a onehourtoolong session of painting. But to look at the stars and see them how he did and know how he translated it. I settle with being… Read more »

If of interest, a lot of interviews with and books featuring contemporary artists and how they manage their process. It has to involve the artist themself and not someone writing about them, it’s different somehow. Can’t help u with van Gogh, but most art institutions and especially those that are less glamour and more coal-face art, have vid interviews online, transcripts etc where the artist might go into aspects of their material processes or concepts in more depth. Not all. Some, though. Xx

Thanks Pi! I’ll go down that route too. But I will fantasize about being in PUCAs brain still.

Great advice and I can relate to the story. I was similarly forced to ask my parents for financial support at 40+. I left a fulltime but soul destroying corporate job to study my true love — fine art. Three years of study and PT freelancing ensued and I was financially back to my early 20s student budget. Much angst and stress later, I’m still freelancing but hoping for a stable PT job soon. My lifestyle is modest, but like you I want to save and travel again, and when you don’t know how long it will be before you… Read more »

How sickening common is this story: In my mid-20s and underemployed, not working in anything I slaved away studying for the past 4+ years… Why isn’t anyone doing anything about us? Why is freelance or “marrying rich” the only realistic options at the moment? I lose sleep over this. It’s getting worse lately.

The reminder that money has been poisoned and unreliable is comforting tho. II’m having problems with my credit card as I write. FUCK this Mercury retrograde to infinity /rant

what is it you want ‘anyone’ to do?

Improve situations for recently graduated students with massive amounts of debt due to student loans. Have more or better job openings in the fields people spent years studying. I mean, schools have rarely so much to teach their students how to market themselves as good potential employees, and that’s only a part of the problem. (I’m currently learning to do that on my own..) But damn, too many companies make it hard to consider you if you have had x number of years of experience. (The whole “you don’t really need experience” piece of advice is a total myth and… Read more »

I can relate, FNM. Almost two years ago I was laid off from a teaching job abroad and I decided to come back home – only I didn’t have any plans lined up, and was sick of teaching. So I moved back in with my parents. This was after being on my own working for several years. It was a rough adjustment and it can still feel humiliating. The stigma is unfortunate and largely untrue. I am comforted by the fact that so many other people in their mid-20s have similar stories: struggling with money or career. My cousins my… Read more »

I too have Taurus rising, Scorpio sun, much Scorpio in the sixth. I too wanted to leave the freelance life and find a job that would support me as an artist. As soon as Saturn exited my 6th, amazingly, I found a job that pays more than I’ve ever made. But it’s so demanding and exhausting that I’m unable to do anything else, and I’m the oldest person there and totally failing at fitting in. After a long siege of unemployment/struggle-level freelancing, I am grateful for the job, but I don’t know how I can make it work. I’m only… Read more »

I should add that Saturn in Sag will bring my second saturn return next year. Yeah, that’s how old I am, and I’m mostly working with people in their 20s.

It is not uncommon in some fields to be mixed in with younger people. I’m surrounded by young MBA’s myself. They keep me sharp, and I keep them loose.

wow, I’m a Scorp Sun/Taurus Rising as well and I just had an interview for my first permanent job in over 10 years. Saturn in the Solar 2nd!

Hey Cal, I wish you luck, and I hope your job is a better fit than mine. I lost my job just as Saturn went into the 6th, and had 2.5 years of solid rejection, and barely getting by. So I couldn’t turn this down, but I’m really scared about what I got myself into, and hoping it doesn’t end up making things ultimately worse.

VR, I hope the PUCAchu can give you some of his choice wisdom. I hope you don’t mind me making a (underinformed) response myself? I think you should give it some time. Fitting in, schmitting in, you have other more important objectives, right? Like financial ones and probably others. Let those twenty somethings worry about it if they want to but you are there to do a job, right? I am presuming there’s no problem there. I do feel you re: the exhaustion and I think it is tiring but you are also in transition phase and it’s always more… Read more »

Thanks – actually fitting in is very important in these kinds of companies, under the guise of “culture is everything.” Diversity isn’t really appreciated. And part of the problem is that I had to move from my home of 15 years a few months ago; I’m living in a small apartment and have a 90-minute commute each way to this job. So it’s a very stressful package. Not much time for exercise, yoga, or a healthy diet. I don’t know how I’m going to manage it. I’m glad I’m self-supporting for the first time in several years, but every day… Read more »

can art happen in some way on the commute?

Good idea. My painting teacher set himself a challenge – sketching ppl on his daily train trip just using a few pencils and a small sketch pad. This produced a lovely series he later exhibited

yes, it’s a lot to get used to and sorry, I realised I didn’t know anything about your workplace when I replied. Maybe this can help: I was feeling exhausted from my work in which I felt i was expending a lot of energy, and my guru said, “set an intention that you will experience it as a net energy gain” A synergystic frisson of inspiration. In fact you can do this for all your roles and activities, including the commute. Are you driving or can you meditate on the commute? Maybe the connections with colleagues will form in their… Read more »
