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.
Ruled by Mercury, the planet of Communication, Gemini is all about the intellect — specifically, receiving and communicating ideas that are fascinating, hilarious or otherwise mentally stimulating. As lighthearted, witty and sociable as you are, you would do well in a career that allows you to interact with the public, such as an event planner or owner of a bookstore, or a career in public relations. Geminis generally do well in jobs related to the written or spoken word, including writer, librarian, journalist, singer or blogger, or even a politician. As young at heart as you are, you might also love a job where your work is to play, such as a children’s birthday party clown or owner of a party supplies, toy or pet store. Whatever you choose, you’re most likely to thrive in a work environment that is dynamic and fast-paced enough to maintain your interest.
