Whether you are a student or a job seeker, astrology can help you choose your career. Not only that, but it also enables you to get more familiar with yourself and know yourself better. Commonly, most people take their time out of college before deciding what career they want to pursue. This is because they want to give themselves enough time away from academics and focus on their passions and interests.
When selecting a career, one must consider whether the field will be fulfilling both financially and personally. A promising career should fulfil these requirements: it should be intellectually stimulating; pay well; allow for creativity; offer security; have growth opportunities; provide social interaction; foster self-acceptance, self-actualization, and self-fulfilment; is in service to others. And astrology is the key to unlocking your true potential and helping you find what career you should choose to achieve all those desired attributes listed above.
Astrology tells us about our talents and abilities, which we should nurture and develop as much as possible. This gives people a sense of purpose and worth and allows each individual to be active within their chosen field. Astrology was deeply into an individual’s character. It studies specific traits and whether someone is introverted, intuitive, conscientious, friendly or perseverant.
Astrology looks at which traits help choose a career path. The first step in using astrology to understand oneself better and finding out the right career choice is by preparing a natal chart. A birth chart, also called the horoscope, shows an individual’s potential talents and abilities as well as their “perfect job.”
The astrological signs can be divided into three categories:
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the fire signs which symbolize action, energy, and passion. It is best to choose professions that allow these individuals to channel their fire into something positive rather than destructive.
These people love challenges in life, so they should be given room for growth in their careers; otherwise, they will get bored quickly. The professions most suitable for this group are athletes, coaches, dancers, actors/actresses, musicians, and artists of all sorts. They can also make great entrepreneurs because of their creative edge and leadership qualities. As a general rule of thumb, if the profession is active or requires an individual to lead others, it’s a good fit for a person with a vital fire element in their chart.
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the earth signs which symbolize stability, practicality, and ambition. Individuals with these traits make great producers or managers because they like to control situations around them. They can sense what needs doing and how it should get done efficiently. They can assess criticism objectively; therefore, working solo is highly suitable for people in this group. As a general rule of thumb, professions that require critical thinking skills such as scientists, professors, psychologists fall under the earth sign category.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the signs which symbolize communication, intellectuality, and humanism. People belonging to this group are natural collaborators because of their passion for communication and harmony in their environment. They should take roles that will allow them to use their skills, whether it’s by teaching or mentoring younger individuals. As a general rule of thumb, people who work with young people or deal with intellectual activities like writing articles are preferred by air signs. Careers such as teachers, counsellors, journalists, therapists, etc., are perfect for Air signs people.
If you belong to any one of these three groups, then focus on your strengths when choosing a career path that allows you to grow professionally in the future. According to Gary Goldschneider in his book “Instant Personal Horoscope,” if you are an Aries, you love to be the leader of people around you.
At the same time, Leo likes to lead, Taurus likes to build things, Virgo likes to analyze and correct. Sagittarius likes freedom of speech and originality, while Capricorn likes stability in life. Gemini has flexibility in their choices where Cancer is attracted towards family values while Pisces desires spirituality within them rather than demanding it from others.
Which is the main House for a career?
The House representing your career is the 10th House from your Ascendant or Moon Sign. If you want a job where you work independently for yourself, then the 11th House might be most suitable because of its association with independent initiatives. E.g., If you belong to the Capricorn Sun sign and have a cancer moon sign, it means you have a career in Cancer.
The 8th House represents joint ventures, while the 9th House deals with higher education and long-distance travel for one’s career after attending higher studies in a faraway destination. Likewise, the 12th House represents unemployment or setbacks due to sudden changes in financial conditions or the adverse environment around which negatively affects one’s career development.
Can we say Astrology is beneficial in career selection/guidance?
Yes, it is.
Astrology has been around for thousands of years, with people using it to predict the future based on movements of celestial bodies in the sky. Through Astrology, one can know what profession is best suited to them. According to the position of stars and planets at the time of their birth. If, for example, you were born on a Tuesday between 4:00 pm-6:59 pm, your ruling planet is Mars. You can pursue anything from athletics to you or become a military person leading others into battle, etc. All these professions require strength and courage to accomplish any task others give.
♈ Aries (March 21-April 19):
These people are natural leaders, making them perfect candidates for government or managerial positions careers. They also do well in sales or education.
♉ Taurus (April 20-May 20):
This sign excels at tasks that require precision and concentration so that they can be great engineers, surgeons, or scientists. Bull-headed Taurus also makes a good lawyer due to their ability to argue effectively. However, they can also struggle with details, so they should avoid accounting careers altogether.
♊ Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
The dual nature of this sign means Gemini is suited for any job with multiple responsibilities or aspects to consider, including editors or copywriters. People born under this sign are also good at working with computers or machines.
♋ Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Cancer is best suited for creative jobs due to its sensitive, artistic nature. However, this sign can also apply their nurturing instincts toward medicine or education.
♌ Leo (July 23-August 22):
Leos can motivate others, making them well suited for careers in management or entertainment. People born under this sign are never bored when they work because it allows them to shine where others feel like phonies. However, if Leo’s creativity is stifled, you could see some office politics arise as they prey on those who bring down their self-esteem and confidence levels.
♍ Virgo (August 23-September 22):
This sign is excellent for jobs that require attention to detail, but they struggle with patience. Rather than working with others, Virgos are also good at working alone or behind the scenes. As a result, this often makes them better suited for science-based careers where the answer isn’t immediately apparent.
♎ Libra (September 23-October 22):
The social skills of Libra are what makes them especially well-suited for careers in law, cosmetology, or education. These people are natural leaders, making them perfect candidates for government or managerial positions careers. They also do well in sales or education. However, their more introverted side mustn’t get overshadowed by their need to please others or this could lead to office politics eventually being brought up because they prey on those who bring down their self-esteem and confidence levels.
♏ Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
This sign is best suited for jobs that involve a lot of research and analysis since they have a strong need to understand why something works a certain way. They can be great scientists, doctors, or teachers because when combined with their ability to sense things others miss, the results can often lead to life-saving discoveries. However, Scorpios can sometimes struggle with money matters due to their overwhelming desire not to create enemies when it comes to business. As a result, this could cause them some hardships when managing finances for a company, so they should avoid being an accountant or bookkeeper.
♐ Sagittarius (November 22-December 21):
This sign is especially suited for jobs requiring a lot of traveling since they love exploring new places and meeting different people. They are also well suited for any career where their natural optimism can shine through, such as sales or religion. However, Sagittarians often struggle with patience which could lead them into some office politics because they prey on those who bring down their self-esteem and confidence levels.
♑ Capricorn (December 22-January 19):
These people are natural leaders, making them perfect candidates for government or managerial positions careers. They also do well in sales or education due to their ability to understand what motivates others and meet those needs. However, Capricorn’s natural ambitious nature can be a double-edged sword in office politics since they will often prey on those who bring down their self-esteem and confidence levels.
♒ Aquarius (January 20-February 18):
Aquarians have a fantastic sense of humour, making them perfect for creative jobs where they get to show this side off. Then they are also good with money and often do well in financial careers like banking or real estate. However, these people can sometimes struggle with patience and emotions, which could lead them into some office politics because they prey on those who bring down their self-esteem and confidence levels.
♓ Pisces (February 19-March 20):

All signs of the Zodiac have unique abilities when it comes to their career and office politics. Being aware of these can help you understand where you stand in your current position and figure out what steps to take next to best utilise your talents and not get caught up in things that could potentially be obstacles.
