Astrology and Chosen Careers

You will find every profession known to man in every zodiac sign. Doctors, lawyers, and even Indian chiefs can be any one of the 12 signs of the zodiac.

Are there special professions for different signs? Let's explore this. What I have done with this topic is generalize a little in taking the traits of the zodiac signs and joined them with different occupations.

At a later date, I will go into this topic more deeply using the moon signs. The information here will show the preference, but not necessarily a final choice. Many of us just fall into different careers and jobs and others seem to be born with a penchant for music, writing, business, or medicine. See where you fall in, and if you are in the field that your astrological sign fits the traits.

Aries: March 21 – April 19

In the astrology horoscope of the sometimes aggressive Aries, it will be easy to figure out the best careers. Aries do well in careers or jobs with lots of change, as boredom can easily set in. Aries have to be careful not to burn out with all their enthusiasm and energy. It is best to choose work without a set daily routines. Demands and challenges should be part of the daily agenda. Being a stockbroker, or involved in some form of sales and marketing which requires lots of creativity and energy will work well for Aries people.

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Taurus people are dependable and methodical being part of the earth sign trio. They are practical and always planning with great attention to detail. Taureans like to make elaborate plans and follow through watching every part of the equation. Taurus people work well with others whether in a leadership role or part of a team. They do well in corporate jobs and enjoy the trip up the ladder. Accounting and law are good fields. There are also many Taurus people with beautiful singing voices.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20

Gemini people often like to be in a fast-paced career or even one that has an element of danger. Change and excitement are two keywords for work, not to mention lots of variety. Many Geminis change careers often until they find one they love. Gemini people have great communication skills and do well in broadcasting and motivational speaking. As for challenging careers, many choose to be air controllers or in some form of aviation. They also like jobs that require multi-tasking.

Cancer: June 22 – July 22

In the astrology horoscope, the home is the first place you think of with the Cancerean personality. Cancer people do love their home and love to indulge in good food. This personality also enjoys work that helps other people and one of giving service.They can often feel overly responsible for other's well being and are known to worry and fret a lot over things out of their control. Their innate sensitivity makes them want to excel in whatever they do. Medicine, psychotherapy, and charity associations make good workplaces for Cancers. They like to be in charge of their own tasks and often work alone. Cancer people appreciate the regular paycheck and often find jobs in large institutions or profitable businesses. Not to mention many great chefs were born under this sign.

Leo: July 23 – August 22

With outgoing personalities and a need for recognition, the Leo personality likes to always be in charge. Crisis situations are handled with ease and rarely cause stress for the Leo. Creative and inventive Leos excel in many fields of sales and management. They do well in public relations, politics, and the entertainment arena. Many actors were born under this sign. Front and center stage and the applause is where they like to be.

Virgo: August 23 – Septeber 22

Virgos are often exact and detail-oriented in their work life. They tend to select classic styles in clothes and rarely like to stand out in the crowd. Being health-oriented and often diet-conscious choosing a form of medicine, social work and even dentistry makes good sense. Often hating the spotlight they enjoy being behind the scenes and quietly doing their job. Often editors of magazines and newspapers were born under this sign. Though Virgos are very articulate and really good with words, they are often shy away from very public jobs.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

Libra is a mixture of talents and can find careers and jobs in many paths. It is rare that they cannot do a job or a new business. Generally charming and diplomatic they do well in greeting the public. Libras often make good teachers, though often not detail-oriented in their personal lives, they can teach with great precision and humor. Huge responsibilities are generally not desirable to the Libra personality, and the stress with problems can be overwhelming. They like to have someone else take care of the nitty-gritty details of a job or business. They also do well in the field of law.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

Scorpios are a hardworking bunch and gifted with lots of intelligence and passion. Scorpios are driven by personal passions and do well in law, architecture, and law enforcement; and they thrive in demanding and challenging positions. They never quit until they find the perfect solution for any business problem. Scorpios have an innate understanding of human nature which helps in many professions.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

The zodiac sign of Sagittarius are almost always fun to be around. They are generally optimistic and enjoy being part of the social scene. Full of energy and adventure, they do well in professions that require these traits and will achieve most of their business goals. Sagittarians express themselves well and often enjoy politics, sales, marketing, and different fields of recreation and sports. There are many successful Sagittarians in major sports. Very often Sagittarians get involved in several different occupations until they find one that suits them.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19

Capricorns are goal-oriented and enjoy working hard to achieve those goals. Computers are part of their daily landscape and are often involved in training, programming, or selling something hot in technology. Capricorns look for industries and work that offer great potential financially. Though they are great family people sometimes the work may come first for a period of time. Energetic and shrewd, they usually succeed in any business endeavor.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Aquarius people are known for their quick thinking and original ideas. Basically they are intelligent and are generally ahead of their times in their work. Analyzing and planning are part of what Aquarians like to do best. They will do well in the fields of engineering and other technical fields. The zodiac sign of Aquarius also has a strong love for animals so Veterinary medicine may be on the agenda. They can be hard working in their chosen profession, but enjoy having time for fun.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

Though Pisces don't work for just love, they are generally not money motivated when choosing a profession. They are artistic whether it be a canvas, decorating, or their clothing. They enjoy working in a field that deals with beautiful items, like art galleries, cars, clothes, or furniture. Pisces people also have strong humanitarian feelings and will often choose to work behind the scenes in non-profit situations. In the astrology horoscope, Pisces people make caring therapists and counselors with their astrology sign.

Totally like me!!! I've been thinking about being a writer and this DEFINITELY boosts my confidence! (i'm a Virgo and, ironically, my name if Virgy)

Cappy101 on July 31, 2018:

I’m pretty sure Capricorn’s are more ambitious and wish to be practical but still enjoy their job...

Trista on June 09, 2018:

This sounds nothing like me at all. I'm a true Capricorn and I want to be a writer. I enjoy writing fantasy books, fanfiction, poetry, and songwriting. I'm also a horse trainer who owns horses. But writing is all I want to do though but not for fame, but just to work hard.

A human on May 18, 2018:

Nothing like me in the SLIGHTEST. I'm Cancer and I want to be an artist.

unknown_person on February 20, 2018:

I am a Gemini and the only career I see is in politics. I hate politics!! I want to be a photographer or film editor, not go into politics.

ThePaganSun on November 03, 2017:

Actually, Leos do very well in sports too since we rule the 5th House of Hobbies (which includes sports).

Kenzie Barnes on December 22, 2016:

Well I'm a cancer and two of my dream jobs are medicine and cooking so I'm happy.

Darrin Hart on November 18, 2013:

As a successful Leo, I'm always surprised to see that many consider us to be 'attention whores'.....while I enjoy leading, I would much rather retreat to my private cave then have the limelight. Always curious why we are portrayed that way. Great hub...thank you!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on September 02, 2013:

Thank you alphadogg16..check out my blog for more info.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on September 02, 2013:

YOu can enjoy the crowd and being a Virgo doesn't mean you won't..You just may analyze things more than others.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on September 02, 2013:

hackslap..good for you and good luck..Great Gemini profession.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on September 02, 2013:

Claudia: Thanks for stopping by and commenting..check out my new blog if you wish.

Thanks Claudia..Appreciate your visit..

John Paolo Magdaluyo from Philippine on September 02, 2013:

Well, I am in the category of Virgo, but I do disagree a little bit, because I am a type of person who wants to enjoy the crowd whether I am directly involved or in any sense involved. Anyway, great hub.

Harry from Sydney, Australia on September 01, 2013:

"As for challenging careers many choose to be air controllers or in some form of aviation. " ... this is SO TRUE! .. Im a Gemini and I love the chatter amongst pilots and ATC and I'm also learning how to fly ..

good article .

Kevin W from Texas on September 01, 2013:

Altough I have never been one to follow/believe in the zodiacs, I found this hub very interesting, and its description of me (Capricorn) was pretty much right on point. Thumbs up.

Claudia Tello from Mexico on August 26, 2013:

That´s true, I am very indecisive. Thanks for the advice.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on August 26, 2013:

I have been an astrologer for many years. Libras can be very indecisive--I know as I am one. Try different things and make sure you love what you do or you won't stick with it. Check out my new blog Thanks for stopping by.

Claudia Tello from Mexico on August 25, 2013:

I am a Libra and I haven´t actually defined my profession or career path. It´s true Libras have many talents and that turns out to be somewhat confusing! I didn´t know you where writing about astrology these days, very interesting.

FullOfLoveSites from United States on May 27, 2013:

Proud to be a Scorpio... though my job as a writer doesn't fit in your description, I also love challenges in my career.:)

My boyfriend is a Cancer, though he's not a trained chef he's an excellent cook. In fact he cooks better than I do. :)

Great and interesting hub! :)

Sarah Chewings from Nottingham, England on May 13, 2013:

Amazing, my sister in law and I are Libran, and I start my teacher training this year, while she has been teaching for 6 years now; my mum is Virgo, and she is a nurse; my hubby is Pisces, he is involved in a lot of voluntary local community work, and my brother works in a fast paced managerial role, and is a Gemini. Strange how it all makes sense...

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 20, 2013:

DDE..I do thank you for your visit and kind words.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on February 19, 2013:

Christin Sander from Midwest on February 09, 2013:

Michelle Liew from Singapore on February 08, 2013:

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on February 07, 2013:

Hi carol,

I have always been interested in astrology and the descriptions for my sign (Cancer) are me to a tee. I love working to help others and also love running my own business. I do fret over others and my home is my castle. The Cancerians are said to be the homemakers and their home is their castle and that is me too! I love Food/chef shows, books and recipes so spot on again!!

So Interesting Carol, votes++++ shared!!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 06, 2013:

Thank you Nell Rose...I appreciate the visit and comments. I guess you are a true Gemini.

Nell Rose from England on February 06, 2013:

Hi carol, mine was pretty accurate, being a Gemini I do tend to go from one job to another until I find the one I like, as for multi tasking, my last job had me on three computers, doing the post and literally everything else! I needed at least ten hands! lol! really interesting stuff, nell

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 06, 2013:

Thank you Rajan Jolly: Geminis do like lots of change and activity and the fully evolved ones are often very successful. Thanks for votes and sharing.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on February 05, 2013:

Carol, as a gemini, I always need change or a stimulating environment. I wish I'd been in the aviation field as the profession listed here as it is a challenging and stimulating field. Moreover, multitasking comes naturally to me.

Great info. Thanks for sharing.

Voted up, useful, interesting and shared.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 05, 2013:

Thank you for lovely comments and it is always a pleasure to see you.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Jamie Brock from Texas on February 05, 2013:

Carol, it's so funny you mentioned the health field. I was in the health field for a long time.. and loved it. I've always loved to write, love to edit and especially I LOVE to organize!! Unfortunately, when it comes to my own stuff I fall short sometimes but I find it super fun to organize things. I need to pay attention to my horoscope more often :)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 05, 2013:

thank you for visiting..And I do like Virgos..I like most of the signs because they are people. However, sometimes when I meet someone who I am not comfortable with they are often one of two signs. Best work really for Virgos is writing, editing, organization and of course the health field. Of course you know there are many online legit sites with jobs. Thanks again for dropping in.

Jamie Brock from Texas on February 04, 2013:

Carol- I don't read my horoscope very often but when I do, I'm usually surprised how accurate they are. I am a Virgo and this description here you have shared is very accurate!! I was surprised just how accurate it was. Sounds just like me! This was especially interesting because very soon.. it is coming and I need to find something to do with my life, as far as job wise... everything I read was right on.. Thank you for sharing this :)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

Cynthia B Turner from Georgia on February 04, 2013:

I read your hub with interest. My sun sign is Pisces and I often find the descriptions and attributes fit my life. I worked in nonprofit for many years, sometimes providing counseling assistance. Other areas of the description fit me as well.

Thanks for giving us this information.

Eiddwen from Wales on February 04, 2013:

As always carol so interesting and here's to many more to follow.


carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

Remember this hub is more general with just the sun sign. WHen I do moon sign combos it is far more accurate...

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

I have a Virgo moon and am detailed about certain things in my life. I get along really well with Virgo people. Thanks for stopping in and comments.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

Thank you so much I love your comments and appreciate a visit from you. And thanks so much for the votes

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

remember the sun sign is general..and the percentages of accuracy are lower than when doing a complete chart. Thanks for stopping in.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 04, 2013:

Thank you midget38...Lovely comments and I always appreciate your support keeps me writing.

Thanks for SHARING. Useful, Awesome & Interesting. Voted up

kidscrafts from Ottawa, Canada on February 04, 2013:

Hi Carol! I was curious for other people I know and myself also and I could find truth for a lot of them and for myself. The only thing for me is I definitely don't see myself in law! I like laws to be respected but it's as far as it goes.

Peg Cole from North Dallas, Texas on February 04, 2013:

Interesting correlation between astrology signs and professions. Hard to figure when I should have been born since I have had a number of different careers. The hubby's sign fits him perfectly as you've described it.

breakfastpop on February 04, 2013:

Your hubs are always fun and fascinating. Up, up, up, carol!

Michelle Liew from Singapore on February 04, 2013:

Carol, I connect with this one. I am a taurus and a music teacher too. I As for how methodical I am, I'm still learning!! But do enjoy things when they are organized. As usual, I love connecting with you over astrology!

Natasha from Hawaii on February 04, 2013:

I always feel fairly well described by my sign, but I wonder if that's because this stuff is true or just happenstance. Either way, Scorpio suits me!

Deborah Brooks Langford from Brownsville,TX on February 04, 2013:

WELL carol that is very interesting.. I am a cancer and it describes me to a tee.. wow I don't usually read this kind of thing but this is amazing.

thanks carol

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Thank you and I am so glad you are enjoying reading. I am having fun also. Thanks for votes and I am waiting for the armored car to arrive..or hopefully you will get the jet fixed soon.

Suzie from Carson City on February 03, 2013:

Carol...This is ESPECIALLY interesting and entertaining! I read this through more than once and also, stopped at each sign, to think of someone I know, who bears that sign. I couldn't help but be astounded by some and just laugh at others.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Your astrology hubs are so much fun! Thanks, Carol...UP+++

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Well Bill...maybe you will become a great chef...However I hoe you like your work and enjoy life. Thanks so much for voting up and sharing.

Bill De Giulio from Massachusetts on February 03, 2013:

Very interesting Carol. I'm a Cancer and I do work for a large profitable corporation with a regular paycheck. Although the fact that many great chefs are Cancer makes me wonder if I missed my true calling. Great job Carol. Voting up, sharing, etc...

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

I know what you mean about stress. I cannot deal with problems at work and I face them but not happily. Thank you for your comments as always Lindacee...What about something in home décor...I have a friend who learned how to make slipcovers, curtains, pillows etc. did great

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Well everyone is different..but I tried to match characteristics with occupations. WHen I do the moon sign comparison it will be more accurate.. Thank you for dropping in.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Rene Abbottsounds good and I have a lot of ideas. Thanks for dropping in and commenting.

Linda Chechar from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

I so agree with your description of Librans. I have never wanted the added responsibilities of a management position and hate dealing with problems--I stress way too much. I currently work in retail and find myself always stressed out about one thing or another. I'm not trained to teach, so I'm thinking I should find a job in a nice, quiet library! ;) Thanks for a fun and interesting Hub, Carol!

Penelope Hart from Rome, Italy on February 03, 2013:

I liked this a lot. Fascinating subject. Checked what you had to say about Scorpios and lots OK, law enforcement though is the very last thing I'd be good at....the human nature thing...yes... check.

Renee Abbott from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Thanks Carol for this post. I love astrology, and will be following you. My sun sign Aries, is intercepted in the chart. Perhaps you can write about interceptions.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Thank you Audrey

Audrey Howitt from California on February 03, 2013:

Very interesting hub Carol!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Well it goes to show you finally found your place of beauty. Just because the occupations may fit the is still a bit general...and in life we do what we have to do to survive and take our best path..Glad you have arrived to where you are most happy.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

thank you Bill..And for sharing. I am getting more views but not huge. I don't know what to expect but I am trying to be patient. I love writing these hubs and they do take a lot of time...Want to do a good job.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on February 03, 2013:

Very interesting, Carol. I'm a Pisces and haven't been in any of the professions stated above. I was in accounting for over 25 years before quitting to write full time. Hmmmmm.....

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 03, 2013:

This was a cool hub, Carol, and surprise, I'm a Libra and I was a teacher. I really found this one interesting. Well done; I think you have a future with this niche. I sure hope you are seeing success with it. Sharing!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 03, 2013:

Always glad when it works..And it does an amazing amount of the time. Thanks for dropping in.

Jools Hogg from North-East UK on February 03, 2013:

Very interesting Carol, mine was pretty true and so was hubby's! He hates the limelight, preferring to work methodically and he's very good at Maths and logic. Give me a microphone and I'm happy :o)
