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.
Headstrong, competitive Aries thrives in a dynamic occupation that makes use of your leadership skills. In previous jobs, you may have experienced the burnout that occurs when you feel stuck in a position that isn’t inspiring or challenging enough. A career that encourages you to be competitive, on the other hand, allows you to bring your sharpest instincts forward. You also do well when you’re in charge, whether as the boss or simply in a position of autonomy. You can thrive in a field like sales or real estate that allows you to put your enthusiasm to work; commission-based occupations also stimulate your drive to work harder and earn more than your colleagues. On a different note, as a Fire sign, you might love the heat, energy and drama of firefighting. You’re a hero at heart and would enjoy any career that allows you to show your true colors, such as police officer, paramedic or rescue worker. You would also make an excellent politician because you possess the sharp wits, competitive streak and strength of will needed for this difficult field.
