The Ideal Career For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Prepare to meet your purpose.

Horoscopes

The ideal career for your zodiac sign is where the Sun thrives the most in your birth chart. Your sun sign not only involves who you are, but it also gives you insight into what your purpose in life is, and where you feel the most confident or like you are fulfilling your purpose. Along with the midheaven, your sun sign is where you tend to gravitate towards in life and where you express yourself in the best light. You can find your ideal career by looking at what your sign is, and your birth chart at large.


Career ventures will vary, of course, but you will find some strong similarities between the career paths of each zodiac sign. For example, Geminis are often found in careers where they can put their mind and their voice to use. They are the zodiac sign that is constantly thinking of the next idea or venture, which is why you will find a lot of Geminis in career roles that involve public speaking (or singing) and careers where they are able to express themselves, their ideas, and their creative vision freely. A Scorpio, however, loves to look at the numbers and the details, and their ideal career is one where they can get to the bottom of something and use their keen eye to either help others develop, such as psychology, or bring order and understanding to finances like banking or crypto.

When looking at the ideal career path for yourself, you especially want to look at your sun sign and midheaven sign, and what they are doing in your chart. By examining your given strengths, weaknesses, gifts, skills, and everything you are already bringing to the table, you can get a better vision of where you will excel in your career and where you can easily highlight your strengths. You are meant to live a successful life and you can look at astrology to determine how to make that happen for yourself.

Read below to see what the ideal career is for your sign.

ARIES

Aries love to initiate and be the frontrunner in anything in life, which makes them great entrepreneurs. Starting their own business, initiating new projects, or creating their own position within their career path are all likely with Aries. Many Aries start their own businesses or build developments, as they feel a lot of what they need in their career life isn’t there yet so they tend to be the first ones in their field, family, or environment to do something in their chosen career path.

Aries are the trailblazers of the zodiac and this energy is apparent in their careers. With Aries also being a sign that is very in-tune with the body and physical strength, they would also thrive in careers such as physical therapy, a personal trainer, police officer, or firefighter.

TAURUS

Taurus is a business-savvy sign and an ideal career for a Taurus involves something that is not too fast-paced, but something where they can continue to grow, work hard and expand their income. A Taurus thrives on stability and they tend to choose careers that they know they are financially secure in and where they can continuously increase their assets.

A Taurus is often found in career fields such as the beauty and fashion industry, finance, antique selling, florals, hospitality, or architecture. Being ruled by Venus, Taurus has an eye for the finer things in life and they love a little luxury. They would also make great event planners, artists, restaurateurs, or chefs.

GEMINI

Geminis are creative and need this type of creative freedom in their working environment. Geminis do well in PR, graphic design, journalism, fashion design, fashion modeling, as an author, public speaker, musician, and curator. Gemini needs to bring their vision to life and they tend to have a lot of different ideas flowing around their head at all times. They want to be able to connect with people through the mind, and they will break apart information and assimilate it together in a way that fits and inspires them.

Geminis are always giving wildcard energy and they tend to change their careers often or find that one path they take in their career leads them to many other ventures and outlets as well.

CANCER

Cancers are a lot more multifaceted than people give them credit for. Everyone knows Cancer as the nurturer, the one with mother energy, etc., and this is all true, but not only do Cancers make great caregivers, they also tend to be very business-savvy as well. An ideal career for a Cancer would be working in the hospitality field or managing a business or people at large.

Cancers do well in real estate because not only do they deeply value the home space and what you can do with it, but they also provide this sense of safety and security to others. You can also find a lot of Cancers as interior designers, writers, psychics, or in the vintage/resale industry.

LEO

Although Leo loves to be in the spotlight, this doesn’t necessarily mean every Leo is an actor/actress. Although the entertainment industry is a good professional field for Leo altogether, Leo thrives in any leadership role, and having a career where they are able to lead or be in the spotlight in some type of way is the right path for them. Think of Barack Obama, the Leo himself who led the country with a bright smile on his face.

With Leo also ruling the 5th house of sports, hobbies, entertainment, and children, career ventures that involve this type of energy are also fulfilling for Leo and they also tend to do well when it comes to working with children and the childcare fields.

VIRGO

Virgos tend to have more service-oriented careers, and they are very hardworking individuals. A Virgo’s life tends to revolve around the work they do because they put a lot of emphasis and love into this area of their life. Virgos love to help others and that is one of their main focuses in this lifetime. Virgos succeed in the health fields and make good physicians, nurses, veterinarians, managers, social workers, and consultants.

Virgos also have a knack for words being that their planetary ruler is Mercury, the planet of the mind and of business, making Virgos great writers, authors, and individuals who know what needs to be done to succeed in their careers. Virgos can also use their gift of organization to be professional organizers or planners, and overall their ideal career involves helping other people.

LIBRA

There are two sides to a Libra. One that is focused on justice, and one that is focused on love and beauty. They find their balance in the middle, however, when it comes to the ideal career for a Libra, this will be different for every Libra at hand. You could find a Libra in a more serious role like a lawyer or a judge fighting for justice or; something like a designer, artist, curator, esthetician, stylist, and interior designer.

A Libra would also thrive in positions where love and relationships are the basis, like the wedding industry, marriage counselors, sex therapists, and professional matchmakers. Libra happens to be the wealthiest sign of the zodiac, so you can find them in many different career ventures, meeting their success.

SCORPIO

Scorpio has a knack for the details and numbers. A career involving something to do with finance like the stock market, banking, crypto, and accounting, are all ideal careers for Scorpio. With Scorpio being the ruler of the 8th house of shared finances, they are smart when it comes to business, and also when it comes to other people’s money; and they don’t have any problem asking for what they want or the type of salary/position they feel they are worthy of.

Scorpios also have the capability to transform and help others to as well, which is why Scorpios make great psychologists/psychiatrists, detectives, and personal investigators as well.

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius needs a lot of freedom within their career and with all fire signs, they like to lead the way and have these types of leadership roles within their professional life. A Saggitarius would make a good educator due to their fondness for education, the higher mind, connecting with people of different backgrounds, and interest to learn more.

Sagittarius also make great entrepreneurs because they aren’t afraid to push the boundaries and put something out there that they believe in. Other possible career paths for Sagittarius are flight attendant, pilot, travel agent, travel nurse, travel blogger, or writer.

CAPRICORN

Capricorn is the ruler of the 10th house of career, and if anyone can thrive in this area of their life, it is a Capricorn. Capricorns are hard-working and they have no problem putting in the work to reach their goals. An ideal career for a Capricorn is anywhere where there is room to grow.

They thrive in careers such as a business executive, CEO, management, law, working for the government, a teacher, and any role that gives them a nice title is something they tend to strive for. They want what they do in their career to be the best of the best, and they want to feel like they are accomplished and successful, and like they are reaching all of their goals in life.

AQUARIUS

Aquarius gives mad scientists energy and everything they do needs to be revolutionary. With Aquarius being the rebels of the zodiac, their career fields tend to match their eccentric behavior. An Aquarius would thrive in roles such as an engineer, scientist, astrologer, social worker, influencer, environmentalist, and web developer.

An ideal career for Aquarius can also involve a role having to do with politics as they tend to have a lot of thoughts and ideas about the collective and what it needs to progress and thrive. An Aquarius can make a career out of activism, humanitarian ventures, and anything to do with helping society, a community, or large numbers of people.

PISCES

Pisces excel in the fields of art and you will often find Pisces having this gift of artistry and creativity. Pisces make great artists, writers, directors, poets, and musicians. Some of the greatest musicians of all time are Pisces or tend to have Pisces Moons. To be completely honest, most Pisces would prefer not to work at all or put that much energy into their career life which is why they need to be doing something that they genuinely enjoy.

Turning a passion into a way to increase their income is beneficial for Pisces so that they don’t feel like they are actually at work every day. Also being able to create something beautiful from their imagination or their creative ideas, also makes them feel very fulfilled in life.
