Aries (March 21 to April 20): Aries has a strong need to be the one to initiate actions. They are headstrong, and do not take kindly to advice or orders given by other people. Because of this, Aries needs to be able to set their own agenda, including the ability to start new projects. Aries often becomes the leader or owner of a company, simply because they have no tolerance for being a subordinate. Another important thing that Aries needs in a job is an element of competition.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21): Taurus does not deal well with insecurity. They do not deal well with change, unexpected surprises, or the possibility that they could become unemployed at a moment’s notice. Taurus is willing to risk money, but only that belonging to other people. Because of these tendencies, Taurus is happiest working at the most stable business or company that they can find, preferably a large company. Failing that, Taurus must figure out ways to save money and create daily routines to cushion their nerves.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21): The biggest thing that Gemini needs in a job to be happy is mental stimulation. Gemini is good at applying their reasoning and communication skills. They also love to travel. Variety for Gemini is the spice of life. What Gemini does not cope well with is boring routines. While Gemini can find relief from a boring job by being a social butterfly or developing an interesting hobby, Gemini is advised to avoid any job involving a cubicle or strict schedule.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22): One of the driving forces of Cancer is their need for security. This need often drives Cancer to take the best paying job that they can find. Unfortunately, this decision will put them in situations where their natural moodiness becomes a liability. Cancer is prone to the occasional emotional outburst, and they need to be in a position where it will not get them terminated. As an alternative to monetary rewards, Cancer is advised to consider jobs where they can nurture others.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): For Leo, the most important part of a job is a recognition of their hard work. This includes appreciation of their ability to organize projects, whether they work alone or as a part of a larger team. Leo needs to be emotionally invested in their work. Sometimes this drives Leo to prove that they can do the job better than anyone else. Leo also needs the freedom to put their own individual stamp to the projects that they work on.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Virgos need to be exposed to a ton of information every day to keep their minds occupied. Virgos also need ways to burn up their daily output of nervous energy. Because of these needs, Virgos tend to gravitate towards jobs that combine a way to feed their “mental hunger” with regular routines. Virgos are good with dealing with the small details, and have no problem with making schedules for other people to follow. Virgos need to be aware of their tendency to criticize others.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Libras need to be surrounded by other people when they work; it does not matter if they are customers, fellow co-workers, or employees. Unfortunately, this need to connect with people makes it hard for Libra to make certain types of decisions, such as terminating employees. Libra fears making the wrong decision, and will put it off as long as possible. Because of this, what Libra needs most to be happy in a job is someone else making all the tough decisions.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): Scorpio knows that knowledge is power. This is true whether they get involved in politics, finance, medicine, or running an antique store. Scorpio loves a good mystery and is happiest in a job when they are digging for forgotten and concealed information or figuring out other people’s motives. On the other hand, they jealousy guard their own privacy, knowing how secrets can be used against oneself. Scorpio is advised to find a job that fulfills one of their lifelong interests.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): Sagittarius is a sun sign that does not cope well with strict daily routines. Their need for independence means that they work best when they are free to vary their routine. Sagittarius also does well in jobs requiring travel. While Sagittarius is good with coping with change, and can plan in big sweeping vistas, they are not good at taking care of trivial details. To be truly happy in a job, Sagittarius needs someone else being responsible for reading the fine print.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19): Capricorn has both a need for financial rewards and status. Capricorn is good at planning ahead, remaining firmly grounded in what is practical, preferring the tried and true. Capricorn has no problem with routines; in fact, they prefer to know ahead of time what they will be doing tomorrow. What they cannot handle is sharing authority. Capricorn is ok with being a member of a team or the leader of one, but they are not good with being a member of a partnership.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18): To be happy with their job, Aquarius must find one that fulfills what may seem like two conflicting needs. On one hand, Aquarius needs contact with people, for they are miserable when they are lonely; on the other hand, they need to be allowed to do their job in peace without others interrupting them or looking over their shoulders. The solution to this dilemma is often work in a humanitarian field or on a project with global implications.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Pisces is the master of hidden power. Pisces is good at using passive resistance and their instinctual emotional understanding of human nature to manipulate others. Pisces also likes to gather secrets. These talents unfortunately often leads Pisces down destructive paths. To be truly happy in a job, Pisces needs to connect the job with a higher purpose. Instead of sacrificing resources and others for personal gain, Pisces will find it more rewarding to use these same talents to serve others.
