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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 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 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 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 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 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.

Everything Kerry Washington Has Said About Her Husband Nnamdi Asomugha
Actress Kerry Washington and her relationship with her husband, actor Nnamdi Asomugha, is the perfect example of a winning team.
The pair became an item following a chance encounter in 2009, and many years later, on June 24, 2013, Washington and Asomugha would secretly tie the knot. Since then, the high-profile couple has expanded their blended family by welcoming two children, a daughter Isabelle Asomugha, 8, and a 6-year-old son Caleb Asomugha. Asomugha also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
Despite Washington and Asomugha choosing to live a relatively private life for the most part by not sharing images of their family on social media and occasionally attending events together. The rare glimpses they provide to the public showcase that Washington and Asomugha have much in common regarding essential topics.
For example, Washington is highly involved in politics and encourages others to participate by spreading information about various issues and how everyone would be affected.
As for Asomugha, the 41-year-old officially founded the Asomugha Foundation in 2010, years after doing other charity work in Nigeria. According to its site, the organization was created to help "disadvantaged youth and women by providing educational opportunities and mentorship."
Washington's public remarks regarding her relationship with Asomugha and their family may be rare, but when she does speak about their family, it's all positive.
Kerry On Why She Keeps Her Relationship Private

In March 2016, the UnPrisioned actress revealed during a discussion panel at SXSW Festival that one of the reasons why she is adamant about remaining private about her union with Asomugha is because she doesn't want the public to make any narratives regarding her marriage.
At the time, it was reported that Washington and the former NFL player were experiencing marital troubles and were allegedly planning on getting a divorce. Washington would shut down those allegations by saying she hasn't and will not share any information about her private life.
"Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, 'That's not true!' So I'm thinking in some ways, it's been great because people are able to maintain their voice," she explained.
"It's a little different for me because I don't talk about my personal life. That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what's going on in my marriage, I don't refute them, because I don't talk about my personal life."
Kerry On How She Met Nnamdi And What A Normal Day Looks Like for Their Family
Fast forward to October 2018, the Scandal star gave insight into how she met Asomugha and their family life. During an interview with Marie Claire, Washington shared that she and Asomugha met in 2009 while she was working on the Broadway play Race.
The mother of two told the publication that her life has "completely transformed" since their encounter. "The last time I did theater, it completely transformed my life. That's where I met my husband. I love being with my family. My days off look like homework, reading, and watching stuff. Just hanging out, doing things we love to do," she stated.

But as time progressed, Washington began speaking a little more openly about her man. In October 2022, Washington gushed over Asomugha and his Netflix project, The Good Nurse, which came out around the same time her film, The School for Good and Evil, was released. While talking to Entertainment Tonight, the star expressed how "proud" she was of her husband.
"I'm really proud of him, I think he's doing amazing work. I'm really excited for his film, The Good Nurse," she said. "It's really exciting to both have really important films at Netflix right now, we feel really blessed.”
Kerry On Why Nnamdi Is Her Soulmate
Washington shared how her love with Asomugha goes beyond the surface after spending over a decade together.
In a March 2023 interview with Marie Claire, Washington explained that she and Asomugha are perfectly aligned because she's allowed to be her authentic self with him.
"I'm in my immediate truth with [him]," Washington said. "Those mirrors are important because they help me get back to myself."

That same month, Washington expressed that in addition to the many years the couple has been together, and their personal and professional accomplishments, she still finds Asomugha "incredible."
Washington shared this revelation while promoting her latest project, UnPrisioned, in an Entertainment Tonight interview.
"I do have an incredible husband," the actress told ET host Kevin Frazier as she disclosed little to no details about their upcoming plans for their tenth wedding anniversary. "Do you remember how secret my wedding was? How private and secretive it was? That's how the anniversary is gonna be too!"
Kerry On Why She Thinks Nnamdi And Their Children Are A Gift From God
Washington's love and admiration for Asomugha and their family grow increasingly each day, so much so that she uses it as inspiration to share positive messages with her fans.
The 46-year-old revealed during a panel with Al Sharpton at National Action Network Convention on April 12 that she sees her husband and their children as "proof" that God exists and loves her because of the great joy they bring to her life.
"Well, you've met my husband, my husband's amazing. I got a good one. We have three beautiful children. And I think, you know, when I look at my marriage, and I look at my kids, fundamentally, they are proof of God to me,” she said. "Because I know that God loves me to have put those people in my life. And that sense of like, knowing that God loves me. That, to me, is so much of how I make the decisions about the activism that I do and the content that I make."
Regardless of what the public may think about Washington and Asomugha's private union, they are proving with each moment that love can conquer all.
