Some say that when you’re born predetermines your life. Whether you believe that zodiac signs are that important or not, it’s still pretty interesting to read about your own star sign! At the very worst, you’ll be entertained. And at the very best, you’ll discover new things about yourself and be able to use that information to make decisions. When it comes to careers, obviously astrological signs don’t have to determine exactly what you do—if you really love numbers, don’t quit studying to be an accountant because you’re a Pisces and should typically be a creative soul. The following careers are really more helpful hints for those who are struggling to find themselves, because while some people don’t feel like they display the qualities of their sign, others are walking, talking versions of them! If that’s you, it’s good to know what job you might feel the most at home in. Here are careers to think about based on your zodiac.
12 Aries (March 20 – April 19)
The leader of the zodiac and a fire sign, it’s no wonder that Aries is a strong-willed and ambitious personality. If you were born under this star sign, you are likely outspoken, a little stubborn, and a strong personality. You won’t do well in a job where you’re doing repetitive, meagre tasks, but are much better suited to something where you can voice your strong opinion. The first career you should try would be something in the media, particularly on TV. You would be great at commentary, as a talk-show host, or in any situation where you can give your uncensored opinion. So yes, you could be the next Ellen DeGeneres! If having your own TV show seems like too much, you could also aim for being a radio host. The next career you should try is being a politician. You’re a leader, you have opinions, and you’re a hard worker. Enough said. The third career you should try is entering the military. With your natural ability to fight, tough outer shell, and your enthusiasm, something in this field would probably satisfy you a lot!
11 Taurus (April 19 – May 20)
Represented by the bull, Taurus is also a very hard worker, as well as a very honest and reliable person. A person born under Taurus is amazing at working in teams, and doesn’t try to outshine others or slack off. A Taurus is also generally methodical and great at using logic to solve problems. Considering that, the first career a Taurus should consider is banking. Given that you’re methodical, it’s only natural that you’d do something where finance is concerned. The next career you might try out is something in the science field. Your practical thinking means that you’d probably do a lot of good inside the lab, and you’d also enjoy the challenges you’re presented with every day. Finally, if you’re a Taurus, you might like to consider becoming an accountant. With this career, you’d get to work with numbers and solve problems to which there is a definite right answer. Plus, like the banking thing, you’d get to work with others who are relying on you to sort out their numbers. A Taurus doesn’t like to be isolated!
10 Gemini (May 20 – June 20)
The most social of the signs, anybody who’s a Gemini doesn’t want to be doing something where they don’t have contact with other people. A Gemini is also infectiously positive and intelligent, meaning you should consider a career that challenges you and gives you spontaneity. The first career that you should probably try out as a Gemini is being a travel agent. You love talking, and you’d get to do this all day long with clients. You’d be successful at this because you’d make destinations sound so amazing with your enthusiasm, and you’d also be great at coming up with smart ways to market yourself differently to the competition. Geminis should also consider a career in sales. You have the gift of the gab, so to speak, and make just about anything sound great. This is because you are genuinely passionate about things, and can see the beauty in anything. A Gemini should also consider becoming a motivational speaker. Like we said, your energy totally radiates through you, and you’re exactly the kind of person who can inspire other people to change.
9 Cancer (June 20 – July 22)
Symbolized by the crab, Cancers are the nurturers and protectors of the zodiac. You more than likely have that maternal instinct and feel the need to look after others. Cancers also tend to be a little dramatic at times, and have very wild imaginations. The first career a Cancer might like to consider is nursing. You tend to feel satisfied when you make others feel better and get a chance to heal and protect them, so you’d be really happy in a job like this. Your friendly nature would also brighten up your patients’ day! The next job a Cancer should think about is being a psychologist. Again, this factors in your need to nurture, and you’d be just the type of person who can make people feel better. You also happen to give very good advice, and you could come up with imaginative ways to help people. A Cancer should also give elementary teaching a try. Your imagination means you could come up with new, innovative lesson plans.
8 Leo (July 22 – August 22)
Another fire sign represented by the lion, Leo is a strong personality who’s very passionate. Charismatic but with a fiery temper, Leo doesn’t do well with a boss breathing down her neck. If this is you, you’re likely an independent thinker, and need your own space in a job that challenges you. A job that any Leo should consider is becoming a CEO. A leadership position like this is perfect for somebody who doesn’t like being told what to do, who is passionate and ambitious, and who doesn’t mind working hard. You’re also a generally likeable person, so other people don’t mind working under you. A Leo might also think about becoming an entertainer. Depending on your talents, you might try your luck as a musician, an actor, a comedian or anything that gives you an opportunity to stand on a stage. Let’s face it—a Leo generally likes being the center of attention, and there’s nothing wrong with that! You could also give editing a try. If you have a way with words, you’re better off leading others and creating your own guidelines that following someone else’s.
7 Virgo (August 22 – September 22)
If you’re born under the Virgo zodiac, you are more than likely a perfectionist. You love details and ticking off lists, and also have a knack for languages. A Virgo is also usually quite talented, and has a great memory. The first career a Virgo should try out would be a translator. Here, you’d get to use your natural ability with languages on a daily basis, and would never miss the smallest detail when translating documents. You wouldn’t stop until your work was perfect, so your clients would be very happy with what you’re producing! Another career that a Virgo can try is a detective. While others might miss subtle details that could solve a case, you would pick them up and sniff out the solution quicker than the majority of people. Literally, nothing gets past you. As a Virgo, you might also like to give being a historian a try. This job requires a ton of research into various sources, which sounds like a nightmare to some, but is heaven to you. Your ability with languages might also come in handy when looking at ancient texts!
6 Libra (September 22 – October 23)
Represented by the scales, a Libra is well-known for being diplomatic and balanced. You consider all options before making a decision (which can sometimes mean you take a while to make up your mind!) and are also friendly, cooperative, and easy to get along with. Considering all that, a Libra should consider becoming a judge. Obviously, there’s a long and challenging road ahead of you before you can walk into a job like that, but if anybody is going to make tricky decisions for a living, it’s you. Judges should always take an objective position, which is something that you do all the time! A Libra might also think about working in foreign relations. You’d be the perfect person to represent your country in a positive way because you’re so likeable, but also because you’re good at listening to others, and negotiating deals. Working in human resources is something else that a Libra would be good at. You are good at coming up with the best solution to people’s problems after weighing up all the facts, and you never discriminate.
5 Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
One of the most passionate and intense zodiacs there is, a Scorpio can’t do a job in which they’re not stimulated. You need to do something you really care about (which isn’t hard to find because you become emotionally invested in a lot of things!), and something that makes good use of your analytical and intuitive nature. They say that a Scorpio can basically read minds, so you would make an amazing criminal profiler. You can usually tell when people are lying, and working with criminals wouldn’t scare you off at all! Being very analytical, a Scorpio should also consider a job in physics. Whether its teaching the subject or being a real physicist, you will be able to put in the hard work. You’ll also be good at all the analysis required! Another career a Scorpio could try is social work. Your passion means you might really make a difference is somebody’s life, and you’d never give up on people when they don’t want your help. You’d always get to the bottom of the issue and make a change, no matter what.
4 Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)
A person born under Sagittarius usually has a whole lot of energy. You tend to be a positive person, quite a bit spiritual, really friendly, and you love traveling. Alternative healing might be something you would totally thrive in. Becoming something like an acupuncturist, or any other kind of Eastern or holistic healer, would be great because it would allow you to tap into your spiritual side, while at the same time utilizing your natural friendliness and positive attitude. Clients would love coming to see you! For something totally different, you could also try a career in public relations. Anybody who’s going to do this job has to be prepared to work hard, and has to be bursting with energy. That is definitely you! Finally you might like to try becoming a tour guide in a foreign city. This would allow you to travel and get to spend time with lots of different people. There’s nothing worse than a grumpy tour guide to ruin your vacation, but there’d be no danger of that happening with a person as bubbly as you.
3 Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)
Capricorns are very reliable, organized, and dedicated. One of the most ambitious of the signs, Capricorns are usually successful in whatever they pursue because they work so damn hard, so you don’t have to worry about failing. That would be very out of character! The first career a Capricorn might consider is medicine. Becoming a doctor, whether that’s a general practitioner or a surgeon, would allow you to put your logical mind to work. You’d also totally ace the years at medical school you’d have to do! Your top organization skills mean you might also make a fantastic event coordinator. You love being in control of things, and whatever issue arises when you’re planning an event, you will be able to swiftly take care of. You also have the dedication and ambition to make your events the best! A Capricorn would also make a fine mathematician. You more than likely have a natural tendency with numbers, and you would be able to persist through all the hard work you would need to do in order to get to a place where your opinion is taken seriously in the field.
2 Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)
Anybody born under the Aquarius sign is most likely an original thinker and visionary. Intellect is definitely your thing, and you are also something of a humanitarian. As a person, you’re very kind and generous. Keeping all of that in mind, an Aquarius would make a great inventor. Your unique, innovative ideas would eventually generate something that would make the world a better place, so this is a career that is definitely realistic for you! An inventor also has to be smart to come up with something that will work within the constraints of physics, but that’s nothing for you to worry about! You might also consider a career in astronomy. Again, your ideas and visions would come in very handy in a field like this, and when paired with your intelligence, could turn into something that’s out of this world! Pun intended. An Aquarius would also make a brilliant business owner. Your business idea would flourish with your brain power to push it along. Knowing you, the business would probably be philanthropic in nature, and something that would better the community or even the world!
1 Pisces (February 18 – March 20)
The last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is a very sensitive sign. If this is you, you are the most artistic of all the signs, in addition to being loving, generous and compassionate. Becoming an artist is a natural choice for a Pisces. You’re creative and you love making things, so all you need to do is find what you enjoy doing most, or what you’re the best at, and pursue it. This could be anything from music, to writing, to painting, and beyond! The next career a Pisces might consider is a hair stylist. This is just another kind of artist really, and is something that allows you to be creative while at the same time making others happy. A makeup artist would be a good option for you too! Finally, if you’re a Pisces, you should think about becoming a counselor. You love listening to people and are generous with your time, plus your natural sensitivity would help others open up around you pronto!
