Every astrological sign governs any one of the 12 Astrological Houses. Each sign, however, has its own significance and emphasis that supposedly differentiates a person’s destiny from another’s and, as a result, their career paths as well. We all nonetheless feel a certain kind of pull (either spiritually or energetically) towards one career or the other but here’s the career you might thrive in based on your Zodiac sign:

1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

A born natural leader, the Aries is a risk-taker and, like other fire signs, is resilient and independent.  Energy is everything, and their aura aligns with passion and confidence. Their hatred for tediousness and frustration with extensively detail-oriented tasks make them work best in the law enforcement or entertainment industry, or as a personal trainer/ athlete.

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

This earth sign is known to be resilient and, like a bull, are both stable and quiet but might become determined and stubborn. They have an artsy streak and prefer stability in both their home and work lives. However, they do love their little quirks. They would make great authors, art directors, interior designers, project managers and the like.

3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The Geminis are adaptable, outgoing, and are masters of communication. They are ingenious but fickle-minded (sometimes both simultaneously). They love being independent and thus their energy would attune with work that’s more along the lines of being self-employed. This air sign would make great entrepreneurs or pop culture personalities where they can win anybody over with their charisma.

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

These nurturing and sensitive souls believe in integrity. They work on positive reinforcement and feel comfortable leading a particular group with empathy. Cancers are passionate and they will love their work if they believe in what they are doing. Cancers have the best energy when working as a social worker, teacher, or nurse. They would also make great real estate agents.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos have a future in the public eye. I mean that sentence is pretty self-explanatory. They are fierce, ambitious, and confident, however fragile their ego is. Their zeal is portrayed in whatever they do. They radiate confidence and would make the perfect CEOs, administrators and, presidents. They would also make great actors.

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This earth sign is detail-oriented (think Monica Geller), neat, and structured. They are sensitive, hardworking perfectionists. Their precise way of thinking makes them perfect to be statisticians, researchers, and medical professionals. Their flawless eye would help them edit content with perfection as well.

7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

They are capable, charming, flexible, and are wonderfully skilled negotiators. They heavily stick to their morals (however acting in a diplomatic manner) and, needless to say, would work best as negotiators, diplomats, and members of the government (Parliament, Congress, the works). Their energy defines hard work.

8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Mysterious, intimidating, with chasms of personality and emotion, Scorpios are both charming and repellent. They are the most intuitive out of all signs. Their idealistic, intuitive and opinionated selves make the best artists, lawyers, detectives, and (sex) therapists.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

As the life of the party, Sagittarians hate the monotony of life. They are adventurous, lively, philosophical, and restless. Their souls will achieve fulfillment only when they travel and enjoy life to the fullest. Their pursuit of truth and love for travel would make them great travel writers, professors, pilots, and mentors.

10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Very much like Leos, Capricorns are suited best for the roles of CEOs. They are also their most productive selves when employed by businesses-related industries such as finance and banks. Capricorns love positions of power and are highly productive in high-stress situations. They make good bosses and want to work towards the betterment of societies. So Capricorns are also humanitarians and love to help people (hint: Michelle Obama).

11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

This humanitarian spirit just wants to work for non-profits. Their energy shines brightest when they are working for the society and they have the most philanthropic attitude. This air sign is also highly intelligent and would make good professors. They would make the best social workers, innovators, humanitarians and the like.

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Need do we mention how artsy this zodiac sign is? They are imaginative, observant, are great listeners and make stunning photographers and artists. These signs have ingenious thinking about the inner workings of the mind and would work best either as psychoanalysts or motivators. They have incredible intuition and, therefore, give good advice and would make brilliant therapists and psychologists.

While these career paths may resonate with each zodiac sign, let us not forget that hard work goes a long way. As much I believe that we are destined for certain things, I may not change the entire trajectory of my life because the stars say so. Or maybe I will. You do you, but always remember that tuning your energy into the work you love to do is the most foolproof plan.
