Some of the best scientific work examining the validity of astrology has been done on vocation.  Michel Gauquelin and his wife Francois conducted some of the most extensively replicated studies on this topic, which has yet to be acknowledged by the scientific community.  Drawing on some of the Gauquelins’ conclusions, we’ll examine the indicators of vocation and profession in the natal chart using a combination of traditional and modern techniques.  Among other things, we will learn:  1) which professions are shown by which indicators; 2) why some people know exactly what they want to be “when they grow up”  while others struggle to find their occupational direction; and 3)  why some activities can be great hobbies but terrible careers.
Maria Mateus has been a student of astrology since she was a teen.  She’s open to all astrological schools of thought, but maintains a particular interest in research, history, language, and ancient techniques.  She believes the key to understanding astrology is an understanding of the manner in which language and mind reflect the world we live in.  In 2002, her desire to demystify the relationship between inner emotional states and outer world manifestations led to the development of the LINCOS grammatical approach to astrology.  Maria has lectured at conferences around the world and has taught at the International Academy of Astrology.  She’s written for several astrological publications, translated On The Heavenly Spheres, a modern introduction to traditional astrological techniques, and is currently working on her own textbook for grammatical astrology.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Texas, and a Master of Arts in Astrology from Kepler College.
