Here’s the thing about being a Taurus: In general people will either assume you’re lazy (which may at times be true) or they peg you as being super stubborn and persistent (which is definitely true). The bull has two speeds, especially when handling tasks they are assigned. They start of by slowly organizing in a cool, calm and calculated manner – once that phase is complete then it’s full speed ahead. In school you most likely spent Friday through Sunday organizing your weekend to-do list only to check everything off in a frenzy on Sunday evening in a red bull induced haze. Sound familiar?Taurus’s require stability, routine and comfort and rarely get bored with routine and the daily grind of everyday office life. You are extremely productive and thorough and never leave an email unread. All of your responses as prompt, efficient, organized and proofread for grammatical errors. Your work ethic is admirable however you can get frazzled easily by sudden changes. Perhaps your favorite coworker gets laid off or your regular Tuesday afternoon meeting gets postphoned. What may seem like innocuous little occurrences to others may have a very unsettling effect on you making you feel off kilter, upset and even angry. In situations like these it’s important for you to relax, take a deep breath in and reorganize. Due to Taurus being ruled by Venus, the planet of romance and beauty, you also most likely have a keen eye for aesthetics. More than likely your calendar is neatly color-coordinated with your handwriting looking like it’s own font. While you more than likely gravitate towards routine and repetitive work, low-energy offices and dingy environments take a serious toll on your morale. In times like this activities like decorating your desk or adoring the walls of your cubicle with artwork is advised. You may also want to consider pursuing an artistic job – design, fashion and cinematography all come to mind as career paths that you would excel in.
It makes a lot of sense that you would want to pursue opportunities that allow you the possibility of plenty of self-expression. Gemini are animated with sharp wits and have no lack of imaginative energy. You’re characterized by your sociability, wit, curiosity and inquisitive nature. In today’s landscape of ever-evolving media and the volatility of todays news cycles, journalism may be a good fit for you.
Gemini’s require a certain level of flexibility with work as they don’t tend to work well with a lot of structure and are easily frustrated by routine. Your adaptability makes you valuable in times of transition and you have no problem hopping around from one assignment to another. The word “career” may seem like a dirty one to you as it doesn’t lend itself to your preferred lifestyle. This is true for many Gemini’s however others may be able to find peace at a career that gives them the freedom of defining their own schedule while continually evolving. Self-employment is an ideal career path for Gemini’s.
While you certainly have no issues conversation you are intensely independent and abhor having to ask for help. Regardless of the path that you pursue your inability to admit when you’re wrong will be a hinderance to your advancement. You want to believe that you can hold yourself accountable, but there will always be someone to answer to for your mistakes.
The Cancer image is intimately associated with feeling for and nurturing others. Your star shines brightest when your mission involves helping and supporting others. More than likely you will find difficulty in emotionally connecting to a job where you don’t feel as if you are positively impacting someone else’s life. Your career may be creative or entrepreneurial in nature however that sense of purpose is a key component in how you define success. As such, you may feel most at home in careers involving education, childcare or healthcare. The protective nature of the crab is uniquely positioned for such pursuits.
Cancers are also highly sensitive to criticism and are best served by positive reinforcement. While Cancers are finely tuned to the needs of others and love offering support they in turn need to feel and adequate level of support being returned to them. If they feel as if they are being micromanaged or attacked they have a propensity for shitting down. Having a visible and measurable impact on lives is important to them – a simple Teacher Appreciation Day or email of thanks does wonders for their demeanour. As a Cancer try to be mindful of the fact that just because you don’t always receive vocal appreciation this doesn’t at all mean that your work doesn’t matter.
But while it’s true that Leos often take up the most oxygen in any room they have surprisingly frail egos due to their innate need for external validation and praise. This makes them susceptible to crumbling under scorn and admonishment. If you are an especially sensitive Leo who wishes to step into the public eye you may want to work on developing a thicker skin so that you aren’t subject to having your day ruined by some simple feedback which isn’t to your liking. This isn’t necessary as a Leo will shine wherever they feel needed and admired, particularly if the work feels significant to their own personal values.
While Leos are often immortalized for theatrics or power they also happen to be genuine and generous people who delight in helping others. In order to perform at their highest a Leo needs to feel proud, which is why many end up taking on charitable causes or politics. As a Leo your loyalty outweighs your vanity every time. You’re perfectly happy to contribute to a group dynamic (as long as you receive an adequate amount of credit) and this makes you an excellent coworker. Feel free to follow a path that allows you to work independently and seek praise, but don’t forget that you are at your very best when in an environment that is a collaborative one.
In general Virgos prefer to work remotely and humbly rather than taking the helm however you may find that project management comes naturally to you. Jump at opportunities to flex your executive muscles. Seizing control probably won’t be your first instinct however coworkers respect a leader who acts with purpose and lays out clear and reasonable expectations. You have the ability of creating order from chaos all while sorting out complicated details and proposing logical solutions. You’re a start-ups dream.
Virgos tend to perform at their peak in peaceful and professional conditions. You aren’t at all interested in water cooler gossip or after-work drama. And while that’s completely ok be sure to allow yourself the opportunity of loosening up once in a while. Ever the the perfectionist, your biggest critic will always be your own self. More than likely you are naturally intelligent, hard-working and widely admired. – take time once in a while to congratulate yourself for your hard work and accomplishments.
Libras are flexible people who possess a wide variety of interests. They are defined by their love for balance, equality and harmony. As a Libra, your sense of justice and your knack for intrapersonal connection suits you well for a career in justice or diplomatic relations: lawyer, mediator, judge, government official, etc. Libras can even charm the pants off of guarded Harvard students (Emmett) or stubborn, mustachioed men (Ron Swanson). Your negotiation skills and ability to lead people to see another point of view — are unparalleled.
You are a cooperative and fiercely loyal person and as a result you will likely perform admirably in any profession. People love a team player and you love a challenge; you will work tirelessly to find solutions to perceived injustices, making friends every step of the way. On top of that, since Libra is ruled by Venus, there is a notable streak of sophistication with everything you do. You will do anything you set your mind to — and you’ll make it look impossibly good.
revel in your attention. They bathe in the stares and glares alike. Is it any wonder that many find themselves on a screen or on a podium? As a Scorpio, you see a person sizing you up and take it as a challenge.
Scorpios have a talent for persuasion. They like to push the envelope and are are right at home in a convincing argument, however risqué or taboo. Scorpios have the ability to be both charming and repellant — Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are both Scorpios. Just those meme legacies alone speak to the vast spectrum of reactions that Scorpios in the public eye are capable of producing.
Under your impenetrable exterior, however, you may get impatient and angry with yourself. It’s not public opinion that matters, but your own inner voice. You often refuse to express these feelings of doubt, which will only exacerbate them, especially at work. Scorpios are almost obsessively determined and incredibly idealistic, which gives them the power to both self-analyze and self-sabotage. Take time to process your emotions in private, then express them in a healthy way. Take constructive criticism seriously rather than personally.
As a Sagittarius, your saving grace is your passion for others’ wellbeing. While you may seem flighty and shallow at times, Sagittarians are often deeply philosophical and curious creatures, always learning and growing. On top of that, Sagittarians have effortless charm and very little insecurities in social situations. This equips you perfectly for teaching, counselling or mentoring.
The archer is also renown for its boldness, refusal to back down and willingness to take risks. You are furiously optimistic and — though an unabashed charmer — independent at heart. You thrive in an environment devoid of tedium and repetition: a job that allows flexibility and movement. Sagittarians may pursue paths as pilots or flight attendants, travel journalists, stuntmen or explorers. They are often remembered for their joviality, sense of freedom and charisma.
Business is often heralded as a special strength for the Capricorn sign. This is likely due to the nature of the work itself: status, productivity and financial success are usually much more important to a Capricorn than the company or goal. Earth Signs are attracted to stability, and Capricorns are most likely to take traditional career paths. You are known by your coworkers and superiors (if you have any of those) for your accomplishments, your legacy and your persistence, not necessarily your warmth or demeanor. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little discipline. Just because you’re not the office’s social butterfly doesn’t mean you’re not highly respected. Think Miranda from Sex and the City. You win admiration from your peers because you say what you mean, you mean what you say, and you get the job done without too much talking at all.
Your patience, determination and coolness under pressure is perfect for high-stress jobs and situations. But try not to overwork yourself; doggedness comes easily to you, so you may be overly willing to pick up other people’s slack. People will admire your integrity and seek you out for guidance, but remember that your own workload is usually more than enough.
If you do happen to be an Aquarius reading these musings, I’d suspect it’s because you’re very indecisive about a “career” to begin with. I don’t imagine that you buy into the modern idea of work consuming your life, and that you’re fine with making money to live and having passion projects on the side. Non-profit and volunteer work is very common for the Aquarius sign.
Nevertheless, Aquarians are innovative, eccentric and inventive human beings. Those with a mind for math or science will likely find great personal gratification with a job in the tech world, working to discover new methods of progress. Aquarians desire to serve as the catalyst for positive change. They channel passion into their everyday lives with strong willpower and far-reaching idealism.
You are far more likely to be driven by your respect for something’s value or mission rather than by financial or personal gain, which makes you both valuable and admirable in the eyes of your community. You’re probably approachable, easy to confide in and attentive, which makes you irreplaceable in the eyes of your coworkers.
Your optimism tends to inspire others and you may find yourself in a reluctant place of leadership. Don’t shy away from this responsibility. Your ability to understand motives, weigh all options before making a decision and value creative solutions makes you an effective manager, especially in non-traditional environments. However, run far away from any job that’s based in a competitive, profit-based environment. Your gentle, encouraging nature is not well-suited to manage people who do not share this disposition.
