For the bulk of us, our jobs take up a huuuge chunk of our lives.
If you find yourself sitting at your desk muttering expletives about how much you loathe the main money-making activity in your life, then it’s probably time to stop and rethink a few things. Low and behold; we have the answer.
To help you get out of your career rut, we’ve found the best jobs for your star sign. Here’s the sitch…
BEST JOB: ENTREPRENEUR OR JOURNALIST
Aries 101: don’t micromanage them. You guys are the first sign in the zodiac line up, meaning you either like being leaders or doing your own thing. You’re strong willed, competitive, and bring a vibrant energy to everything you do. As far as entrepreneurship goes, Aries are likely to rock it and find success. They’d also do wonders in the political and journalism realms.
BEST JOB: STYLIST OR DESIGNER
Taurus crave stability and security in their work life. You’re an honest, determined, and patient bunch who like seeing the end product from all your hand yakka. Ideal jobs would be working with flowers, food (food stylists are a thing, y’know?), or other creative design.
BEST JOB: TEACHER OR PUBLIC RELATIONS
Tedious and/or repetitive work is a no-no for Geminis. You’re bursting with energy and would rather be given room to creatively express yourself, rather than be chained by ridged rules. Socialising is also something you crave, so teaching or public relations would fit you quite nicely.
BEST JOB: CEO OR NUTRITIONIST
As the mother of the zodiac, Cancers are caring, nurturing humans. Just like mamas, you have an impressive ability to juggle dozens of tasks, give solid advice, and make sure everyone is happy. Carrying responsibility on your shoulders comes naturally so you’d make a top-notch executive or nutritionist.
BEST JOB: SALESPERSON, HAIRSTYLIST, OR ACTOR
You fearless Leos are all guns blazing when it comes to your careers. Unless you’re always a busy body and on the go, then you run the risk of becoming bored AF. Your goal-chasing spirit makes you the perfect salesperson, or your entertaining, charming traits will make you a mighty fine actor. Side note: Leos have a thing for hair (must be the lion mane thing) so could be worth giving hairstyling a go.
BEST JOB: SUB EDITOR OR TECHNICIAN
Virgos are pretty much dream employees. You tend to be perfectionists with great memories and a never-ending dose of self motivation. Your attention to detail and precision will fare you well as a sub editor, technician, or detective. You’ve always wanted to be Sherlock Holmes, right?
BEST JOB: LAWYER, COUNSELLOR, OR MAKE-UP ARTIST
The “balance” sign of the zodiac, you Libras are wonderful mediators, like to keep the peace and know how to calm someone the hell down. You smooth operators love people so working alongside other humans is a must—we think being a lawyer, guidance counsellor, make-up artist, or event planner would fit your perfectly.
BEST JOB: SURGEON, INVESTIGATOR, OR SEX THERAPIST
Scorps, you’re goal chasers and take whatever tasks you’re handed very, VERY seriously. Uh huh, you may be intense but one thing’s for sure, you’ll get the job done. You can block out distractions and love a challenge making you a brilliant surgeon or investigator. For something a bit saucier, Scorpios would also rock it as a dominatrix or sex therapist. Reeeeow.
BEST JOB: PUBLISHER OR TRAVEL BLOGGER
Knowledge and travel are what Sagis are about. You’re a bundle of energy and quite spiritual and philosophical. You love inspiring others and have a knack for bringing humour into niggly and tense situations. On the job front, you’d rock running a website or working as a publisher. You’re not fussed by the nitty gritty details and routine kills your vibe, so try something that you can do anytime, anywhere.
BEST JOB: THE BOSS
Capricorns have workaholic hearts and strive to the best in whatever field they choose. You run a tight ship and thrive in corporate settings or when you have opportunities to work your way up the ladder. Once you become the ‘boss’ or a manager, you kill it in terms of keeping everyone organised and to schedule. Whatever career path you take; you just want to be at the top of your game. Go get ‘em, tiger.
BEST JOB: PHOTOGRAPHER, SCIENTIST, OR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR
Aquarians are attracted to the weird and the wonderful in this world. You have a tendency to rebel against the corporate way of doing things and prefer to walk to the beat of your own drum. The boredom struggle is real and you need to do something that will keep that creative brain of yours stimulated, whether it’s as a bee keeper, scientist, mediator, photographer or independent contractor, with the freedom and space to think in your own way. Not everyone is going to understand the way you work, but in terms of fresh and innovative ideas, you’ll end up blowing their mind.
BEST JOB: NURSE, ARTIST, OR ASTROLOGER
As the oldest sign in the Zodiac, Pisces are passionate, sensitive, and intuitive old souls. You gravitate towards “healing” professions or jobs that allow you to be creative, such as dancing, music, or art. Feel in tune with the universe? Many tarot readers and astrologers are Pisces!
