Astrology Secrets Revealed by ERIC FRANCIS

Dealing with Negative Energy in the Workplace


April 15, 2005


Dear Eric,


I am going to try and see if you can provide some insight for me. I became aware of your link on Jonathan Cainer's site which I visit daily for some guidance. But I have had a challenge that I can't seem to get direction on.


I now professionally work in the health care world as a senior buyer -- I purchase all big capital items (things costing over $500.00 dollars and that have a life span of over two years) for our hospital and satellite doctors offices. I work hard and am constantly receiving praise from the departments I work for. The challenge is the environment I work in. I have coworkers that would like nothing more than to see me fall flat on my face and I have a new boss of two years who has yet to grasp the hospital purchasing program and I believe wants me to go; I feel he believes me a threat.


I have been trying unsuccessfully to find other employment. I enjoy the health care setting but I would like to have your insight as to my near future. I also love to write novels but with the energy that I put into my job here, it leaves very little time for that. I would appreciate some direction from you.


Your time is appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you.

Dear Linda:


I am aware that midlife career changes can be very difficult, including job changes. However, because your chart is so prone to power struggles and obsessions, I suggest you find yourself a new place to work, and from the sound of it, something new to do. It's a big world and there are lots of places for you. But you may not feel that way.


One way to look at the situation is psychologically and emotionally. In other words, while this is obviously going on in your workplace, you can take it a level deeper and look at it as purely personal material that you get a chance to deal with now. That would best be done with a therapist (not necessarily a psychologist, but anyone who works with people in a talk-therapy setting who can help you feel the deep emotionality of this situation, the frustration and the sense of being trapped and abandoned.


There's quite a bit in your chart that tells me you're living out a childhood situation in your workplace as an adult. The aspect is a conjunction between the Moon and Pluto (see first question above for information about a Moon-Pluto aspect, some of which may apply). This is in Leo -- intense. Then, these two planets receive a square from Mars, which is in Scorpio. So you have the Moon square Mars, and Mars square Pluto. That, my cousin, is a heck of a lot of power struggle, and it relates directly to childhood and in particular mother because the Moon is involved.


So, one way to work this out is on the outside, as a career issue, and there's nothing stopping you from doing that. There are plenty of great resources for finding jobs. The other way is to start with where you are at right now, and work with the probable roots of the situation. See all these destructive dynamics for what they are. That will have an unusual benefit: it will give you a measure of power in the situation, because you will become conscious of what is going on, and you'll be able to make some new decisions about what to do. And when you move on, you'll be able to identify the kind of unfriendly, unsupportive vibes that you're now trapped in. And you will have gone a long way to unhooking them within yourself. Basically, I'm proposing that through therapy, you'll get to a place where you don't need this kind of nonsense any more.
