People often only use their astrological sign, or birth charts to look for love, or find out what’s going to happen in the future more generally. But how could you apply horoscopes to the sphere of career and leadership? Astrologer Josephine Corcoran says absolutely.
Your birth chart is rich with indicators of your love life, friendships, overall life satisfaction, and professional calling. For those of you who are eager to explore what your birth chart has to say about your career, you need to first start by creating your birth chart. This can be done at any number of online sites and all you’ll need to enter is your birth date, time, and location.
Once you have that, there are four key parts of your chart to examine for insight into your professional growth.
Your sun sign
This is the zodiac sign the sun was in at your birth–it’s the sign we identify as. The sun indicates what drives you, what your passions are, and what your life path is.
If the qualities of your sun sign are not expressed and developed through your work, you’re unlikely to feel fulfilled professionally and you will struggle to succeed, whatever your definition of success is.

Your professional legacy
The zodiac sign that rules your 10th house (midheaven) indicates the professional legacy you’re here to leave behind. It’s a symbol of your public life and where you reach for and achieve success. It’s also associated with your inner calling and purpose. Any planets in this house will also give clues to major career themes and talents.
Your ideal routine
The third is the zodiac sign that rules your 6th house and it indicates your ideal daily routine, but also the environment to maintain balance in your mind, body and soul . Align with your 6th House and you will realise your true strengths and purpose.
The lunar nodes
These two opposing points in the sky, where the sun and the moon’s orbits cross, are known as the north and south nodes. The south node represents gifts you’ve inherited and are available to use in your career, while the north node represents your new future path. The key is finding a balance between the two by engaging in activities that feed your purpose.
What will 2021 bring for us professionally?
A review of the astrology of 2021 identifies peak periods of sudden change this year in mid-February, mid-June and mid-December. Whether you choose to make a change in your career or it’s thrust upon you, just remember that change brings opportunity for new beginnings in your professional life.
Key zodiac signs which are most likely to experience unexpected change and upheaval making space for a professional breakthrough this year include Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. Gemini and Sagittarius are also likely to let go of old beliefs and get clear on what matters most to them. And Capricorn is likely to be reviewing finances and work relationships at the end of 2021.
2021 will be a significant reset
We will see a continued rise in the rejection of top-down leadership and working for years on end in meaningless roles to pay off huge sums of debt.
In its place, people will be seeking inspiring work that offers freedom of movement, flexibility, the opportunity to contribute their ideas and be innovative. More and more, our professional lives will be an extension of our unique identity.
Upheaval and structural changes to the foundation of society will be an ongoing theme all year.
As such, it’ll be a significant year for sifting through what has been working for you professionally and what you’ve outgrown and ready to leave behind.
This is where understanding your astrological profile and therefore your purpose, passion and path will be key to working with the change that 2021 will bring.
Your birth map is able to offer you a profile of your unique innate abilities as a leader, areas for growth and authentic purpose.
