Career Signs

If you have found assessments like Myers Briggs, DISC or 360's helpful in your career development, consider adding astrology to your tool box. In her book, "Star Signs at Work" Debbie Burns uses astrology as a guide to success in the workplace. She suggests that we have the most energy, talent and impact when we are aware of and aligned with our own nature. Find your sun sign below by your birth date. Look to the the essence or substance or archetype of Debbie's vocational suggestions. How do the qualities show up in your current job or future aspirations?
