[Where should I take my professional life?]
Unfortunately, Astrology cannot answer this subjective question and if you think it can or should, you are mistaken and have unrealistic expectations and no doubt you will end up disillusioned and frustrated with astrology. astrologers are not clairvoyants, so perhaps lower your expectations here
Misconceptions about what astrology can do perhaps this thread will help you understand a little more
As famous Western astrologer Noel Tyl says, “astrology is NOT something to believe in but just to know about”

I notice your TOB seems to have been rounded up to 1pm, and in reality no one is born at the o clock, half past and quarters.So IF you were born less then 2minutes earlier you would be late Virgo Asc and late Gemini MC. So do you see how crucil TOB is?
Midheaven – What to look for in career
your progressed mercury is 1'approaching natal mars and this enlivens the mind and speech. this is already squaring natal jupiter, this could suggest lots more talking, studying
I would disregard mars trine neptune as too wide. I tend to reduce the orb ratio down to 85% on astro to bring in line with mainstream orbs.
nonetheless, your Sun is at the ARIES point which is important
So if mercury is chart ruler and MC ruler its domicile in gemini and opp neptune could show some creative writing abillity, but also miss communications going out and coming in, reading too much between the lines, or just simple day dreaming.
When Transiting Jupiter gets to the end of gemini in end June/July 2013 there should be opportunities for employment, socialising, studying, travel.
Would you consider something like a sex therapist? For woman? And maybe related to their birthing experiences. You MC ruler is conjunct your Chiron. This is what Bob Marks is writing about your Chiron in 8th house. “A more likely scenario is that you have the ability to bring out the sexual best in a romantic partner, while giving yourself the short end of the stick (no pun intended). But the 8th house rules more than sex. You could also get stuck with taking care of partnership resources because "you’re so good at it,” or, conversely, keep getting partners who want to “take care” of it and do you out of your fair share. Perhaps you become too dependent on money from others for support, or too much of what you earn goes to support others. You might tend to accept other people’s values (your family, group or society) too readily. One other thing. The myth of Chiron can actually come alive with this placement. You could have a talent for healing or rehabilitating others, but not yourself."
Sorry Owly, I have to disagree. Sexual Therapist is probably not a good idea (since the second quadrant is empty). It makes it harder to personalize. It wouldn’t be natural for you to just be of service, Julia. You are more the executive kind. Would you consider taking some courses for marketing and web-design? Overall, you have now more intense desire to learn new things than to start working. Work would come into the picture in the second part of the year. How do you feel about financial sector? You could bring a fresh spirit and creativity by affiliating yourself with companies who provide some kind of energies, even alternative energy sources like the solar power.
Maybe you can relate to this article by Jo Tracey about Cancer and work:
The Crab is one of those signs which I find difficult to write about- not because I don’t get on with Cancerians, as a fellow Water sign I absolutely do- but because of the way Cancer is portrayed in popular media and also the way in which Cancerians see themselves. In many cases, the two concepts do not match at all.
Defining Cancer as the Mother figure can be two dimensional, gender specific and not at all appropriate to a workplace discussion. In most workplaces there is no room for emotional sogginess, and Cancer is, at work, definitely all business. To help me out here, I consulted a Cancer friend who is both an employee and a Senior Manager at the company she works for. She is also a busy working Mother with possibly more commitments outside the office than she does at home. Her mantra is simple- get it done, get it done right. No nonsense. I suggested that really this isn’t that different to how she has to be at home, and she agreed- there isn’t really time to fluff around.
As an employee she expects to be treated fairly and the deal-breaker for her would be to sacrifice work/home balance without commensurate reward. As a Boss, she treats her employees as family and will do what she can to protect them from whatever is thrown from above. That is, unless they abuse her trust. Cancer is there to work and to earn money. Not for ego purposes or to show the world how great they are, but to make life secure and ensure that schooling and mortgages and all of lifes essentials are taken care of. Loyalty to the company exists only as long as the company recognises that and pays accordingly. An undervalued and underpaid Cancer employee will not hang around longer than he needs to. Where others may justify that flexibility is important or the title is important or the social aspect is important, Cancer knows that she can’t spend her title at the grocery store.
In return for appropriate compensation, Cancer will work long and hard and do whatever it takes in order to ensure that bonuses and increases come their way. You may not hear them- Cancer rarely blows her own trumpet, but you will feel her influence. She isn’t a flashy dresser at work, but will always be neat and appropriate.
Appreciate her ability to read a room in a meeting, and listen to her intuition. When the company has failed to appreciate him and he has left and the emails aren’t getting answered and the work isn’t being done as well as what she did it, you will notice her absence keenly. As will your Morning Tea club…Cancer employees tend to be brilliant contributors in that area as well!
