Astrology and Careers
Confused about your profession? Perhaps your sign can help. By Yael Morowati
Have you ever thought that your astrological sign was a major factor in what field you chose to study in school or what profession you currently hold? This week, I outline some basic characteristics of each sign so you can determine whether or not your career choices line up.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are the leaders of the zodiac. They are energetic, inspirational, creative, and independent.
Aries (March 21-April 19): creative, resilient, and pioneering. They make excellent leaders, entrepreneurs, officers, policemen and women, surgeons, chemists, engineers, and world travelers. Since they are bold and do not like routine, they like professions with a good amount of challenges. Their ruling planet: Mars.
Leo (July 23-August 23): confident, ambitious, and dynamic. They make excellent entrepreneurs, entertainers, government officials, politicians, and public speakers. Leos are not subservient, thus they need to be the boss in whatever they do. Their ruling planet: Sun.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): philosophical, optimistic, freedom-oriented, and dynamic. They excel as entrepreneurs, pilots, flight attendants, teachers and professors, religious and mystical persons, writers, and astrologers. Sagittarius is the physical and metaphorical traveler of the zodiac, so traditional life doesn’t usually suit them. Their ruling planet: Jupiter.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are the most grounded and practical of the zodiac. They are the planners and rely on structure.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): determined, loyal, and hard working. They make excellent scientists, engineers, computer programmers, administrators, financiers, film producers, and actors. Taurus individuals are tactile, so anything that is creative or deals with people and physical therapy will attract them. Their ruling planet: Venus.
Virgo (August 23-Septempber 22): detail-oriented, analytical, and hard working. They excel as scientists, engineers, accountants, brokers, actors, poets, publishers, editors, and schoolteachers. Due to their inquisitive yet reserved nature, they are usually drawn to health-related fields and subjects. Their ruling planet: Mercury.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): ambitious, patient, loyal, and driven. They make excellent researchers, agriculturists, engineers, lawyers, astronomers, real estate brokers and agents, financiers, businessmen, and managers. Capricorns will usually stay in the same field for a lifetime, just as long as they are motivated to climb up the ladder. They need constancy and recognition to be happy. Their ruling planet: Saturn.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are the thinkers and visionaries of the zodiac. They need to take part in brainstorming activities.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): clever, adaptable, and quick-witted. They are great businessmen, educators and teachers, artists, designers, musicians, journalists, advocates, and linguists. Since they get bored easily and are hyper inquisitive, most Geminis need to take part in a few different projects at the same time to keep their interest. Their ruling planet: Mercury.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): diplomatic, creative, indecisive, and highly intelligent. They make excellent designers, painters, musicians, writers, actors, singers, government officials, lawyers, and counselors. Libra men and women need to be with people since they are social animals. Their ruling planet: Venus.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): analytical, inventive, stubborn, and inquisitive. They excel as musicians, professors and lecturers, politicians, advocates, scientists, archeologists and architects. Aquarius individuals are not thing driven, since they are visionaries. They are attracted to spiritual and occult matters. Since they recognize patterns on a global level, they are usually treated as outcasts and are highly misunderstood. Their ruling planet: Saturn.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) are the emotional healers and counselors of the zodiac. Their priorities are usually out of this world.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): caring, intuitive, creative, and spiritually driven. They make great psychologists, teachers, therapists, interior designers, journalists and writers, real estate agents, sailors, importers/exporters, restaurateurs, business people, and orators. Cancers are the most emotionally complex, so they prefer to work with people one-on one rather than taking on large crowds. Their ruling planet: Moon.
Scorpio (October 23-Novemeber 21) are dynamic, creative, resourceful, outspoken, and passionate. They make great psychologists, lawyers and advocates, heads of organizations, chemists, and researchers. They are also drawn to the occult and other spiritual matters. A mature Scorpio has the power to heal others with their touch. Their ruling planet: Mars.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): compassionate, intuitive, altruistic, and spiritually inclined. They are visionaries, artists, entertainers, psychologists, businessmen, scholars, politicians, and scientists. They are the eldest of the zodiac, so usually their endeavors are globally related. They are not attracted to the mundane but want to elevate humanity. Their ruling planet: Jupiter.
