This Is Your Ideal Career, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Unhappy with your career? Feeling uninspired? You’re not alone. Finding the right career is not an easy feat. In fact, the average person will change careers about 5-7 times during their professional life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that either. Money only gets you so far in life, but happiness will take you further. Why stay in a career that makes you dread getting out of bed every morning? This is your ideal career based on your Zodiac sign.

Aries: March 20- April 20

Ideal careers: Police Officer, Firefighter, Personal Trainer or Politician

There’s a reason Aries is represented by the strong Ram. You’re a natural born leader and work well in a position of authority or an environment driven by competition. Strive for that position.

Taurus: April 20- May 21

Ideal careers: Floral Arrangement, Jewelry Designer, Landscaper or Accountant 

Taurus is one of the most dependable and hardworking signs, which makes you the perfect candidate for a job that requires the utmost dedication. Think creative jobs such as working with jewelry, flowers or food. You are meticulous when it comes to detail, and would also thrive in the financial world.

Gemini: May 21- June 21

Ideal careers: Public Relations, Publicity Agent, Teacher or Engineer

Gemini’s thrive under pressure and are quick to adapt to changing environments. Throw multiple tasks their way, just make sure it isn’t repetitive or tedious work. Gemini’s can get bored quickly, so a fast paced environment involving diverse tasks is ideal.

Cancer: June 21 – July 23

Ideal careers: Human Resources, Nanny, Nutritionist, or Teacher

Cancer is a nurturing sign bY default. You thrive on your results and when you don’t see them, you feel discouraged. You handle responsibility with grace and are a stellar multitasker. Think professional mom, only you get paid!

Leo: July 23 – August 23

Ideal careers: Performer, CEO, Fashion Designer, or Politician 

As the leading zodiac sign, Leo’s love being in the spotlight and taking charge. As a natural born leader, you do not thrive in an environment where you are micro-managed. Leo’s tend to make the best leaders, but can be a bit high-maintenance and disruptive to the team at times. Fear not though, you’ll win your peers over with your charm and good-nature in the end.

Virgo: August 23 – September 23

Ideal careers: Therapist, Editor, Translator, or Detective

Virgo’s are known for being perfectionists, which is not always a bad quality to have, especially in the professional world. You make an ideal employee as you follow direction very well, though you can also make a practical boss. Your ideal career based on your Zodiac sign lies in the service industry.

Libra: September 23 – October 23

Ideal careers: Customer Service, Salesperson, Negotiator, or Diplomat

Libra is a very personable and social sign. You are an ideal employee to take charge of communication with your charm and ability to smooth talk even the most difficult people.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 22

Ideal careers: Surgeon, Crime Scene Investigator, Detective, or Lawyer

Scorpio’s are very intense and can work in fields that may turn many people off. Think any medical profession. Leave it to you to be able to block out all outside distractions and focus in on the task at hand. All I’m sayin’ is that if I were having open heart surgery, I’d maybe want my surgeon to be a Scorpio.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 22

Ideal careers: Animal Rights Activist, Youth Program Leader, Minister, or Non-Profit

Sagittarians are known to be ethical and easy going. This makes you an ideal employee in almost any setting. You’ve got a soft spot for animals and can’t stand seeing them mistreated, so you should probably open up that shelter you’ve been thinking about.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 20

Ideal careers: Administrative, IT, Architect, or Editor

Every sign needs a serious counterpart, and that’s where you come in Capricorn. You’re serious and organized, but don’t let that fool others into thinking you’re boring. You’re ultimate goal is to reach the top, and you won’t let upper management intimidate you. Let your enthusiasm shine and you’ll get there in no time.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Ideal careers: Inventor, Photography, Entrepreneur, or Independent Contractor

Aquarius is the true free spirit of the Zodiac. You will not do well in the corporate world as you tend to rebel against upper management. You thrive on the ability to express yourself and your ideas and are not afraid to go against the grain.

Pisces: February 18 – March 20

Ideal careers: Therapist, Psychologist, Artist, or Astrologer

As the oldest sign in the Zodiac, you are the most intuitive. You’re full of creativity and compassion, which leaves your ideal career choices open to a variety of paths, such as health care or the arts. Really, the world is yours, Pisces.
