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.
Meticulous, detail-oriented Virgo is both keenly intellectual and highly service-minded. You thrive in a career that utilizes your facility with detail and organization, such as office manager, copyeditor or personal organizer, or one that allows you to put your keen critical faculties to use, such as restaurant critic, Health Department inspector, accountant, editor or detective. You also love to be of service to others, and you’re naturally focused on issues of health; thus, you might enjoy working as a nurse, a dental hygienist, a nutritionist, or in some other area of health care, or, alternatively, as a manicurist or hair stylist. If, like many Virgos, you possess a facility with languages, you would do well as a writer or translator. Any career you choose should be one that offers a certain amount of predictability regarding your schedule and income, since you work best within an established routine.
