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.
Ambitious Capricorn is responsible, dependable and always seeking improvement. You tend to work your way up the ladder of success, and may in fact be overworked — but as long as you’re doing work you love, your dedication won’t be in vain. You’re happiest in a career that has a clear promotional track to the top, so avoid occupations that have little room for growth. Seek instead a career that employs your excellent work ethic, your competitive nature and your comfort with rules and routine, such as school administrator, team manager or banker. You’re also naturally focused on status and reputation, and might gravitate toward a career in politics or as a tenure-track professor. Wherever your career starts out, you’re sure to reach an important position of power within your field; given time to prove yourself and hone your skills, you may become chairperson, partner or CEO.
