Neptune Scorpio in the 10th: Police Sketch Artist or rather Composite Sketch Artist. Courtroom Sketch Artist

Neptune Scorpio in the 10th: Police Sketch Artist or rather Composite Sketch Artist or maybe even a Courtroom Sketch Artist.

Oh yeah.  I smell a new career coming on, maybe!  LOL

Here’s one of my latest experiments in shading.

This guy is NOT a criminal (look at that smile and robust cheeks! :)

This is a recent experiment in shading and drawing realistic faces. I think I’m getting better but it’s still amateur.  Nonetheless, after looking at some ‘police sketches’, it doesn’t look that far off from that work and this only took me 20 minutes to sketch and frankly I’d like to keep my sketches to no longer than 30 minutes, if possible!

Astrology: Pluto in Leo, Like Sun Conjunct Pluto, Leo Square Scorpio

Someone said Leo’s scared them after I told them that someone they might want to contact, about a language related topic, has Pluto Leo in the 9th house and would likely be able to answer their question.

My response was: Pluto Leo is even scarier — that combines Scorpio and Leo energy which are naturally square to each other.  And it’s like having Sun Conjunct Pluto (often challenging, due to the natural square). That combination can mean: Powerful self, Creative depth, Destructive force, Occult leader, etc.

She shared this video and the over-the-top character (radio talk show host) seems so Pluto Leo!

By the way, I’m a Leo Sun. ;-)
Hope I don’t scare them too much!

Quote: Astrology & Your Natal Chart

Your astrological natal chart describes who you are.  It doesn’t excuse who you are.  If you or other people don’t like how you act, it’s not your chart that’s at fault. 

You’ll need or want to adjust (inconjunct), smooth (trine), enhance (conjunction), harmonize (opposition), or learn how to sparkle (sextile) — some examples — if you want to lead a better life.

Considering Becoming a Professional Anything? And Wondering: How Much Should You Charge?! Watch This!

If you want to stay in business for a long time, love what you do, and be respected as a professional — charge fair, affordable fees.  However, ensure these fees are professional and based on all the expenses incurred in doing business, as well as your experience, ability, and unique offering.

If you find you can’t or are unable to charge professional fees, you may want to consider getting into another line of work because it will cost you and your colleagues a lot if you don’t think about your entrance or continued presence as a paid professional within your industry.

As a full time astrologer, psychic, and tarot reader — I fully support what Mark is teaching here. I couldn’t have said it better. And unfortunately in the creative and holistic fields, many professionals do not consider the cost of doing business and can not make a full time living, doing what they love, because they are selling themselves short.

I have a different perspective in offering my services because I took business, as a major, in school.  I took business because I loved marketing, promoting, and selling what I believed in and my father ran his own business but also because I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up — the work I do today and will do tomorrow, was totally NOT on my radar. I was a hard core conservative back then, believe it or not. My how things change!

So I didn’t actually learn a particular skill in school, other than what’s involved in running and managing a business, and for the longest time that bothered me but now I can see how it’s been of benefit.

So if you didn’t get business training, yet you want to offer your services for money — do consider learning all you can about running a business, and take to heart videos like this.

Much love <3
