How much are your dreams worth?

I had a night at the movies with the girls last week to see the latest George Clooney movie “Up in the Air”. Essentially it is about a man whose life is spent collecting loyalty points and air miles as he travels the country retrenching people for companies who don’t wish to do it themselves.

Loyalty is a big theme throughout the film- familial loyalty, spousal loyalty, the loyalty shown by employees to their employer and the loyalty that we feel should be shown from the company to the employee. As each of these pieces of human loyalty are seen to be breaking down, we see in contrast the constancy of loyalty points and the benefits available by maximising those opportunities.But also core to the film is the concept of dreams- how we give up on our dreams, how much we sell our dreams for. Clooney’s character has this incredibly cheesey line where he tells people that are being “let go” that they are now being given an opportunity to follow their dreams. In most cases sheer financial reality means that this is not the case, but in some...?I read in this morning’s Sydney Morning Herald an article about a man who went from being a monorail driver and milk delivery man to Florist. He had a career crisis and followed his heart. A similar story a few weeks ago caught my eye about a man previously employed is the Snowy Mountains of southern NSW as a land-mover. He was retrenched and is now following a dream of freelance writing. There are thousands of similar examples out there.Astrologically I have no idea what was happening to any of these people. The initial crisis may have been caused by a number of planetary sources aspecting key career points in the charts of those people eg:·         Uranus is usually the key offender for sudden changes- I always tend to look for whatever Uranus and Mars are doing when jolts from the blue end a situation quickly. You often come out of a Uranus transit completely changed but more authentically you.·         Saturn aspecting a career point or moving through a career house always asks you to think carefully about whether your situation is serving you well.·         Neptune transiting a career house brings with it general dissatisfaction and fog. You may wake from a Neptune transit with a dream of what you want to do.·         Pluto just destroys anything that is rotten at the core. He is like the nasty boss who hands the paper you have worked on at night for the past few months back to you with a big red line through it and says “a few suggested changes”.But what if that if that person was receiving a Jupiter transit? What if he had to lose something in order to make way for an opportunity to follow his heart? Would he recognise that opportunity? Would he enrol in that course? Would he take that leap of faith? Would you?
