Soul Purpose

Soul Purpose can be discovered within your astrology, but ultimately it is within yourself.  It is what makes you most yourself and most deeply fulfilled.  You have to be present to win, and to look within.  Follow your bliss, as Joseph Campbell suggests, your passion and gifts, for it those things that you are here to express.  Your purpose may be closely aligned with your profession, or it may transcend it.
