It starts when we're very young, adults begin asking us what we want to be when we grow up. The answers start pretty fantastical, with children answering things like 'princess' or 'cowboy' as that's what they find exciting, but of course, that changes as we get older and find new, more practical things to become passionate about.
However, it's still very unlikely to find one thing you want to stick with forever, and most people do wind up changing careers throughout their life. But, after working one job for so long, how do you even begin trying to find a new one? Your zodiac sign may have the answer.

Our Working Lives
Choosing one's career is a very important milestone. Well, some get to choose, anyway. Some inherit a career path, others just happen to fall into one. No matter how you get there, we all find ourselves at a job in an industry, but our mileage and satisfaction in those jobs vary greatly.
If you're seeking out your true career path or looking to change the one you're on, you may be lost on where to start looking. Thankfully, an unexpected source may have the answers you've been looking for, as our zodiac sign can provide great insight into our natural skills and where they could best fit.
Here, you'll find a list of potential jobs for each sign and why they're the perfect match.
Aries is known for their bold, passionate stances on things. They're born leaders, meant to be a trailblazer within their industries either in a creative or physical sense. They're either someone who can introduce brilliant new concepts or someone who can work their bodies to the bone and still be ready to keep going. They enjoy taking charge and facing issues with confidence, even issues most others would shy away from.
Because of these admirable qualities, they could do well within a business industry, either in creative or financial departments, or as a brave first responder such as a firefighter or paramedic.
Taurus is admired for their practical, grounded sense of reality, able to calm the worries of anyone who confides in them. They're incredible planners, but don't often enjoy being the center of attention, much preferring to hang back and do more of the behind-the-scenes work. They're also exceptionally humble! Well, publicly anyway, in private they're very confident in their skills, as they should be!
A career that would fit Taurus is one that's important, but not flashy. One that will make them feel important as people will rely on them, while also not being showy about it. This could be something like a financial advisor, data analyst, or some sort of consultant.
Gemini is famously the most social sign. It's one of their trademark traits, able to make friends wherever they go and enjoying the company of people, no matter if they're the same friends they've had or new people they just met.
Their knack for affability is a wonderful skill to have in the workplace and opens them up to a wife variety of careers, as their social nature means they're also pretty great at networking. If they want to keep their careers very people-focused, Geminis can find great success in public relations, human resources, or community management.
Though Cancer tends to think of its emotional highs and lows as a hindrance, there are plenty of careers where having a sensitive heart only makes you better at the work you're doing.
With a high emotional drive comes high intuition, high compassion, and a natural draw toward caregiving, and there are plenty of jobs that desperately need someone with a loving, empathetic emotional compass. Cancer, you might find fulfilling, meaningful work that you excel at in social work and mental health sectors.
Leos most famous quality is enjoying being in the spotlight, and while that can translate well to a number of careers, members of this sign can be a bit more picky about what to pursue. Alongside their love of center-stage, Leos also have a very magnetic personality, drawing others to them and allowing others to trust them easily.
For Leos, the typical attention-focused jobs like working in the performing arts is always a given, but they could also thrive in social media or sales positions, ones where their natural draw lends them a lot of credibility.
Virgo is a sign that generally thrives in the working world thanks to their naturally coveted and useful traits. Someone who's detail-oriented, focused, and driven are always wanted at any job. There are, however, certain roles wherein those very traits become even more useful.
Virgos can find great success in jobs like event planning, graphic design, brand management, or publishing. By either giving them an idea that they can run with an plan down to the smallest of details or handing them a project that needs to be checked for errors, you'll be using the best of what a Virgo has to offer and utilizing their greatest talents.
An oft overlooked fact about Libras is their love of the arts. Many consider Libras to be a serious, enigmatic sign, but they're actually rather in touch with their emotional expressions, meaning they're drawn to the arts as they're equally fascinated by the expressions of others.
Yes, you could say that a Libra's strong sense of justice would make them a wonderful judge or the like, but they're likely to find more fulfillment within the art world. They could very well become an artist in their own right, but they could also be a gallery curator, an art appraiser, or even an assistant to an artist in their workshop!
Scorpios tend to be thought of as very serious, even stoic, but that really isn't the case. Anyone who's known a Scorpio personally knows that they can be just as silly and whimsical as anyone. What makes them seem so aloof is their high levels of emotional intelligence. They're good at withholding their true feelings about a situation, communicating them with tact rather than immediately showing them.
They're also very empathetic, something else many people misjudge them on. Their patience, emotional awareness, and genuine care for others make them the perfect candidate for teaching, psychiatry, or counselling.
Sagittarius is often defined by their love of travel, but what that really boils down to is a hatred of being bored. While yes, many Sagittarius love to see the world, there are also those that prefer to stay home but still desperately need some variety that will keep them feeling fresh.
For those that do love travel, anything that makes traveling into their career is the goal. Travel blogger, food reviewer, even something like a flight attendant would work! For those needing change at home, working tech positions within the entertainment industry offers something new every day, as do fields like journalism!
Capricorns are very driven signs, and perhaps among the most career-minded of the whole zodiac. Like Virgos, they have a number of traits that make them widely desirable for many careers in their ambition, determination, and clear goal-setting, so they can truly fit in anywhere they desire.
Still, there are some fields that appreciate those traits more than others. Capricorns tend to thrive in management positions of many kinds but may feel an extra sense of belonging within the realm of science, tech, or medicine.
Aquarius is always happy to tell people exactly how they feel. They're the type to openly express every thought and feeling they have, no shame or hesitation detected, finding life too short to worry about those types of things. They need to work in a field where they're free to express their opinions without fear of judgment.
They also have a genuine love and care for their fellow human, friends often labeling them as tenderhearted. Both of these combined means they would do well in charities or non-profits that align with their beliefs or in social work, wherever they can help care for those who need it most.
Pisces, like Libra, is another sign that's largely connected to the arts. They're less likely to make a career out of it like Libra could, preferring to keep much of their art to themselves and their friends, but their creative nature still draws them to similar fields. If they do pursue the arts, it might be a little further from the spotlight or on a smaller scale.
Pisces also has a love of community, so they may find themselves wanting to get involved in a local arts scene. Community organizing, working with children, or being a local instructor in their particular talent (whatever that may be) are all fields that will get them on the ground working with those who need a gentle guiding hand.
Your Truest Desires
As with anything, it's not advised to let only your zodiac sign decide your career. You're more than just your sign, and though you may share similar qualities of those who share the same one, you still have your unique interests, passions, desires, and goals. All of these and more can influence what you want to make a career out of, and that's wonderful!
This list is more for the people who feel lost, knowing they need a change but unsure where to start. By learning about your sign and its natural talents, you can find a field in which you can start on the right foot toward success.
