Career astrology focuses on how your Zodiac sign influences your career. Your astrology analyses your career life by studying the 2nd, 6th and 10th house of the birth chart. The 2nd house focuses on income through your career or profession.
The 6th house focuses on your day-to-day career life and the 10th house represents your job status.
Apart from this, the positioning of certain planets like Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury dictate your career future in many ways: Saturn tells you about your quality of work, ability to improve your service and work ethics.
Jupiter will tell you about your wealth and ways of using past life merit. Mercury will dictate your job details. It will tell you your numbers, your communication skills and how well you are able to take up new opportunities in the workplace.
Even though we all make our own career choices, it is important to know what career suits your Zodiac sign. This is because it will help you understand what type of careers are good for you and what is not. As a result, you will be able to make a more informed decision when it comes to choosing your choice of profession.
Therefore, this article aims at providing information on the type of careers that are suitable for each Zodiac sign.
Aries are born to lead as they have a lot of passion and are very competitive. Not liking to be told what to do, Aries should be calling the shots. As the cardinal fire sign, Aries love starting new projects and forging new paths. Due to these traits, Aries make excellent entrepreneurs.
However, Aries don’t enjoy the drudgery of maintaining a static project, so they should have a career with constant opportunities for innovation. Getting a business off the ground is easier for Aries than keeping it going, so they need good support.
This is why Aries thrives in an existing structure when they have room to be themselves. NGOs or tech corporations are great for Aries when in a position to lead a project and move on to the next new thing before they get bored.
Taurus is grounded. At the moment, the place, and the people around them. This makes them excel at jobs that require you to connect with people or nature.
Their stubbornness can help them stand their ground, but it isn’t great in socially complex professions. When working with children, Taurus can take advantage of their best traits. Many Taurus would rather feel more in touch with the earth, and for them, farming or horticulture are excellent careers.
Taurus has the presence of mind to keep a close eye on the needs of living things, and the diligence to put in the hard work that needs to get done.
Gemini can wear many faces, and even they often have trouble telling which is real. In any performative career, they will use this talent to thrive.
Performance arts are an obvious good fit, but many other careers take advantage of the flexibility of Gemini. Marketing, human resources, social work, or any other job that requires charisma and diplomacy are roles the Gemini can slip into easily.
Social interaction is the air even the most introverted Gemini breaths.
The world can seem a harsh place to sensitive Cancer, due to their heightened empathy. It is this great weakness that is their greatest strength in the workplace.
Cancers have a knack for sensing others’ feelings, and a desire to comfort. This constantly reminds them of the suffering in the world, and they do best in careers that address the well being of others.
Whether social justice, social work, or therapy, Cancers excel in careers that focus on helping the people who need it most.
Leos are better than everyone else and can do anything. The only thing holding them back is that they know it.
Arrogance is the classic flaw of Leo, but it isn’t unwarranted. Leos tend to have incredible talent, and if they can get motivated they will excel at anything they choose to do.
However, the moment you take away their audience, they’d rather stay in bed. This makes Leos exceptional in the arts, public speaking, or leading corporate or NGO projects with big flashy agendas.
Virgos have a vision of how things should be, and they know how to get them that way. Their perfectionism is perfect for careers requiring high levels of precision.
They have professionalism perfect for ambitious careers like medicine and engineering, but they bring the same levels of perfection to whatever path they take.
Virgos expect the best from everyone around them as well, which can put unwanted pressure in highly collaborative jobs. Virgos also have a strong sense of aesthetics, making them tailor-fit for any sort of design career.
Libras want others to have access to the things they deserve. While they don’t crave power for power’s sake, this desire can make Libras great leaders.
Their love of justice makes helps them stay accountable to the people they manage, and they are rarely prone to greed. The obvious cliche of the justice system is by no means a bad fit for a Libra, but they are excellent in any managerial position.
As a Zodiac Sign Scorpios like to experience life to its fullest. They love adventure, excitement, and intensity. Scorpios seek dangerous, glamorous jobs like stunt double or deep sea fishing, but there are other ways to scratch that itch.
Jobs that bring them plenty of social interaction with unique people are a good call, whether as a bartender or a behavioral health specialist or tour guide. Scorpios are drawn to the more niche jobs, preferring excitement and allure over stability and drudgery.
Sagittarius are great learners. They have an expansive vision that brings certain wisdom and lets them see things in ways that others cannot.
They often have the gentle patience of an old soul, making them great mentors and leaders even when they don’t seek those roles. Sagittarius can bring a special something to those careers that require a lifetime of learning, so academia, foreign service, and the arts make great choices for them.
Capricorns tend to have a stoic seriousness that lets them weather even the toughest careers.
Holding themselves to incredibly high standards, they like to work hard and achieve great things. Capricorns can often excel at the jobs no one else wants to do, but where they really feel satisfied in careers with great hurdles and upwards mobility.
Capricorns do well in engineering or similarly demanding jobs or in the status and rigor of government and military careers. When a Capricorn is in a position of power, they worked hard to get there.
Aquarius has their head in the clouds, but the view from up there is one seen by no other.
They might seem a bit strange to others, but this strangeness is what lets them bring a unique perspective to whatever it is they do. Aquarius shine their brightest when putting in creative positions, from art to design to even technology or science.
Whatever path they take, it is crucial that their individuality is allowed to run free.
Let’s be honest. Pisces are emotionally complex and delicate, their vivid imagination feels safer than the real world. They make great artists, but the work necessary to make money off their art is often too much.
They make great intellectuals or scientists, but the pressures of academia often ruin those dreams. Born to be mystics, the conundrum of the Pisces is that their true calling has no place in the modern world.
Having said that, these traits are not completely specific or rigid for any zodiac sign.
Nevertheless, they do offer a great deal of insight into what kind of careers and professions will bring out the best in them. Therefore, it is rather beneficial to take these factors into consideration while making such a decision.
