A Career Question

The querent wants to know whether his actual job as an independent consultant will bring him in more money in the near future.  He wants to triple his earnings of now in the near future.  He would like his current position to be long lasting, increasing year after year and even be able to sell his consultancy business to the company he is working in 7 years, after that keep managing it for 3 years and then retire in 10 years time.

In short, where will his future go as he continues to work with the current company, with selling his consultancy service in future as a possibility.
Chart data:  1.07pm 7 Apr  2011, Hong Kong. 2 Leo 11 rising.
L1 is the querent signified by the Sun, which is in exaltation, triplicity and face.  It is in H9 his house of joy.  The querent is strong with lots of dignities.  He is a good employee.   With exaltation there is also the element of exaggeration – so possibly on some level he rates himself higher/better/stronger than he is/appears better/stronger than he is – but he is still a good/strong employee/person indeed. In the house of his joy he is very comfortable where he is and with his situation and is able to manifest his goodness. The emotional side is signified by the Moon.  The Moon is strong in her exaltation in angular house.  The Moon conjuncts fixed star Algol, his emotion is occupied by the general idea of losing his head in the job.  This is further confirmed by the Moon’s antiscion just inside the cusp of H1.
L10 is the job signified by Mars.  Mars is in his sign and face, under the sun’s beam in cadent H9. Despite the mutual reception it is still under the sun’s beams which is mildly negative – but yes, the effects of sun’s beams are lessened because Mars disposits the Sun. Just like a planet combust is not harmed if it disposits the Sun, but it still can’t see or be seen. H10 cusp conjuncts fixed star Vertex, a blind spot – so there is something hidden about the job – possibly the USB adds to this as well. This is essentially a good job, though external circumstances may cover the view.  The job hasn’t much power to manifest its dignity as it is in a cadent house.
L10 Mars has just entered Aries, at the beginning of the sign, L1 the Sun is in the middle of Aries, both of them in cardinal house, aptly describes himself and his job as there is a lot of initiation of new projects or clients involved.  The Moon is void of course which is a strong argument for the situation staying as it is hence the job is long lasting.  The positive mutual reception between the querent and the job is another testimony of a long lasting relationship, as the job and the querent likes each other.
Money of the job is signified by L11 Mercury.  Mercury is in peregrine, retrograde and going to conjunct and combust the Sun.  The job does not have much money, and it is getting worse.  The Sun as the querent is only in the term of Mercury, meaning that the querent likes the job’s money by very little, obviously because the money from the job is very little.  The money of the job, L11 Mercury, is in exaltation and triplicity of the querent.  The work’s money likes the querent so there is intention for the job to pay him more, yet the external circumstances at the moment do not allow.  Mercury is in retrograde and going to remain in peregrine for a long time before it changes sign.  The situation remains the same as it is now for a long time.
With the Sun in middle of Aries and Mars at the beginning of Aries, the positive mutual reception between the querent and the job will continue for a long time.  Hence for a long time the querent is going to like the job and being appreciated in reciprocate.  Emotionally the Moon is in the term of Mars, he feels okay about the job but not great possibly because money is not as rewarding as he wishes. Yes – the money is a big problem here – in a shocking state for a dignified job.
In the long run the querent wants to sell himself (he owns his consultancy operation) to the current company.  I take L1 as representing himself.  L1 is currently very strong in dignities, in the long run when he moves to Taurus, all dignities will be gone and it will be in detriment of Mars.  Therefore it will not be a viable deal as the querent will be hating the company and hence will not want to continue will his service.
My advice to him based on the chart is that while it is positive to have long term goals and to have vision, he is not yet in a position to entertain those thoughts (and we can see the illusions of grandeur from the exalted status of the Sun). Being a 1 person entity, especially in the current economy, it is not easy to employ other people or to expand the business. I suggest that he focuses on the issues at hand now and that he has another look at the viability of selling his company to someone else when it is feasible to do so.
Based on the mutual reception between him and the company that he is an agent for I would suggest that he retains that position but being in a cardinal sign as opposed to fixed (the Sun) he will be able to represent more than one company at a time. So possibly to assist him financially he should also look at taking on contracts for other companies as well, provided this doesn’t jeopardize his existing contracts.
