Settling on a career path to pursue can be quite a tricky business. What type of work will make you feel happy and fulfilled, as if you’re doing something meaningful with your life? Which job will provide the income and benefits you need to support the lifestyle of your choosing? Which profession will meet the ambition that swells within you, fulfilling the image you have of yourself? Some of us are lucky enough to find an occupation early and easily that feels like a natural fit — one that utilizes our strengths while challenging us to develop our weaker points; one that is engaging and fascinating and a pleasure to show up to every day. But many of us are still searching for that perfect job that can become a career for life. If you’re in the latter category, read on to find out about the gifts and strengths of your astrological sign that can translate into the perfect career for you.
Intellectual, forward-thinking Aquarius works best in an occupation that utilizes your drive to improve on the status quo. You could thrive as a scientist, an inventor or the founder of an Internet startup company, especially since you’re drawn toward technical gadgets and advances. You also have a strongly progressive side and may be a natural humanitarian or environmentalist; thus, you could enjoy a career as an animal or human rights activist, a politician, an organic farmer, a city planner, or an architect specializing in sustainable design. As a people-person who loves being out in the crowd, you might love working as a fundraiser, an event planner or a community organizer. Whichever path you pursue, keep in mind that you work best when you aren’t cooped up in a stuffy corporate environment, and when you have plenty of autonomy and freedom to do your own thing.
