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.

Our teeth are connected to so many things - our nutrition, our confidence, and our overall mood. We often take for granted how important healthy teeth are, until issues like tooth sensitivity or gum recession come to remind us. Like most things related to our bodies, prevention is the best medicine. Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.
1) Go Easy On the Rough Brushing: Brushing your teeth is and always will be priority number one in the oral hygiene department. No surprises there! However, there is such a thing as applying too much pressure when brushing…and that can lead to problems over time. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and brush in smooth, circular motions. It may seem counterintuitive, but a gentle approach to brushing is the most effective way to clean those pearly whites without wearing away enamel and exposing sensitive areas of the teeth.
2) Use A Desensitizing Toothpaste: As everyone knows, mouth pain can be highly uncomfortable; but tooth sensitivity is a whole different beast. Hot weather favorites like ice cream and popsicles have the ability to trigger tooth sensitivity, which might make you want to stay away from icy foods altogether. But as always, prevention is the best medicine here. Switching to a toothpaste like Sensodyne’s Sensitivity & Gum toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth will help build a protective layer over sensitive areas of the tooth. Over time, those sharp sensations that occur with extremely cold foods will subside, and you’ll be back to treating yourself to your icy faves like this one!
3) Floss, Rinse, Brush. (And In That Order!): Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s not what you do, but how you do it”? Well, the same thing applies to taking care of your teeth. Even if you are flossing and brushing religiously, you could be missing out on some of the benefits simply because you aren’t doing so in the right order. Flossing is best to do before brushing because it removes food particles and plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach. After a proper flossing sesh, it is important to rinse out your mouth with water after. Finally, you can whip out your toothbrush and get to brushing. Though many of us commonly rinse with water after brushing to remove excess toothpaste, it may not be the best thing for our teeth. That’s because fluoride, the active ingredient in toothpaste that protects your enamel, works best when it gets to sit on the teeth and continue working its magic. Rinsing with water after brushing doesn’t let the toothpaste go to work like it really can. Changing up your order may take some getting used to, but over time, you’ll see the difference.
4) Stay Hydrated: Upping your water supply is a no-fail way to level up your health overall, and your teeth are no exception to this rule. Drinking water not only helps maintain a healthy pH balance in your mouth, but it also washes away residue and acids that can cause enamel erosion. It also helps you steer clear of dry mouth, which is a gateway to bad breath. And who needs that?
5) Show Your Gums Some Love: When it comes to improving your smile, you may be laser-focused on getting your teeth whiter, straighter, and overall healthier. Rightfully so, as these are all attributes of a megawatt smile; but you certainly don’t want to leave gum health out of the equation. If you neglect your gums, you’ll start to notice the effects of plaque buildup, which can irritate the gums and cause gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease. Seeing blood while brushing and flossing is a tell-tale sign that your gums are suffering. You may also experience gum recession — a condition where the gum tissue surrounding your teeth pulls back, exposing more of your tooth. Brushing at least twice a day with a gum-protecting toothpaste like Sensodyne Sensitivity and Gum, coupled with regular dentist visits, will keep your gums shining as bright as those pearly whites.
2023 has become the year of celebrity breakups with headlines breaking left and right about celebs filing for divorce or ending high-profile relationships. The latest couple to announce their dissolution? British actress Jodie Turner-Smith. TMZ reported that Jodie has filed for a divorce from her husband, Dawson Creek alum Joshua Jackson.
As far as her reason for calling it quits, Jodie cited "irreconcilable differences," according to TMZ, and has requested joint custody of the couple's daughter, Janie. Late last year there were rumblings of there being "trouble in paradise" for the couple after the media realized they were no longer following each other on Instagram.
Those rumors were more than laid to rest when Jodie and Joshua went to the 2023 Oscars together earlier this year, and even more recently, when they celebrated her birthday together last month during the September unveiling of the Lotus Emeya.

Despite seeming particularly happy and in love, perhaps the writing was already written on the wall even then. In the past, Jodie has been very celebratory publicly about her love for her estranged husband, even boldly recounting their love story for the books in a 2021 interview with Seth Meyers.
When Jodie and Joshua met, it was while at his birthday party in 2018. Their relationship was hot and heavy from the start, with Jodie openly noting that they began as a "one-night stand." During her 2021 interview with Seth Meyers, she jokingly referred to their love story as a "three-year one-night stand." She shared:
"First of all, I saw him before he saw me and when I saw him, I was like, 'I want that.' And then when he saw me, I just pretended like I didn't see him. He had to yell across the room to me, and I was wearing this T-shirt from a movie called Sorry to Bother You and [actress] Tessa Thompson plays a character called Detroit, and she has this T-shirt that says, 'The Future Is Female Ejaculation.'
"And so, he shouts across the room, 'Detroit!' He comes over and… does this really cute, charming thing that he does and just all night -- he just basically followed me around the party."
The couple were together from that moment forth, and even made things "Instagram official" less than two weeks later while on a dinner date. Joshua would later clarify to Insider that the night they met in 2018 was not a 'one-night stand' or a 'three-year one-night stand' like his then-wife joked but instead, it was "technically a three-night stand."
"It was sealed with a kiss that night and then we didn't leave each other's sides for, well, three years now," Joshua continued at the time.
In a July 2021 interview with Jimmy Fallon, Joshua dropped more details about the why behind getting married. He revealed that he didn't know he wanted to get married to Jodie until "the moment she asked me."
"She asked me on New Year's Eve. We were in Nicaragua. It was very beautiful, incredibly romantic, we were walking down the beach and she asked me to marry her."
He added, "I did not know [she would propose], but she was quite adamant and she was right. This is the best choice I ever made."
Joshua Jackson Reveals Jodie Turner-Smith Proposed To Him
Jodie received quite a bit of flack for proposing to Joshua because it goes against tradition and what society sees as acceptable for a woman to do to a man, and proposing isn't one of them. No matter how much time has passed, the viewpoints around who should do the proposing and who should be proposed to are still very traditional.
After being on the receiving end of such backlash, Joshua would later clarify to the media in a separate interview that it wasn't just Jodie's proposal to him that sealed the deal of them getting married, he proposed to her too. She might have initiated it, but Joshua followed through.
"I accidentally threw my wife under the bus because that story was told quickly and it didn't give the full context and holy Jesus, the internet is racist and misogynist," he explained to Refinery29 that same year. "We were in Nicaragua on a beautiful moonlit night, it could not possibly have been more romantic."

He continued, "And yes, my wife did propose to me and yes, I did say yes, but what I didn't say in that interview was there was a caveat, which is that I'm still old school enough that I said, 'This is a yes, but you have to give me the opportunity [to do it too].'"
"She has a biological father and a stepdad, who's the man who raised her. [I said], 'You have to give me the opportunity to ask both of those men for your hand in marriage.' And then, 'I would like the opportunity to re-propose to you and do it the old-fashioned way down on bended knee.' So, that's actually how the story ended up."
Joshua and Jodie would eventually marry in December 2019. Shortly thereafter, Jodie gave birth to the couple's first child, Janie, in 2020.
In a recent interview with Elle UK, Jodie shared the ways becoming a mother to Janie helped to heal her of her wounds from colorism she experienced in the past. "It's interesting because I had a lot of resistance to becoming a mother and, throughout my life, I always said if I were to have children, I wanted to have Black, Black babies so that I could affirm them as children with the love that I felt I needed to have been affirmed with by the outside world," Jodie shared with the outlet.
She continued, "Then I fell in love with my husband and we talked about having kids. I did have this mini pause, where I was like, 'She's going to be walking through the world not only having an experience that I did not have, but looking like people that, in a way, I'd always felt a little bit tormented by.' Now that I've got this little, tiny, light-skinned boss, I feel like it’s the universe teaching me lessons. I've been given a daughter who looks this way to heal my own conversations around colorism."
