If you’re in need of some help in the career department, keep reading to find out what you should do for a living, based on your zodiac sign.


Your mind is on your money and your money is on your mind. You’re ambitious and you strive to be super successful, to the point where everything you do is based on how it will help you out financially. On top of your dedication to saving money, you’re also responsible and you work hard, which is why you should consider being a banker or accountant.


You’re witty and clever, but also kind of a cynic. You’re pretty emotionally detached from people, but you still manage to work well with others. Your mind works in different ways because of how smart and progressive you are. You would make a great scientist or researcher.


You’re pretty hard on yourself when it comes to your career. You don’t like to be in positions of power because you don’t like the pressure, but you’re very creative and hard-working. Because you’re a creative thinker who’s passionate about the world around you, you would make a great poet or musician.


You need to be in charge, and your extremely competitive nature makes it hard for you to take no for an answer. In addition to being aggressive, you’re also pretty caring, which is probably why you would make such a great leader—you know how to push people and encourage them with your optimism. For that, you’d make a great CEO or social activist.


“You smart. You loyal. You grateful.” When DJ Khaled dropped that knowledge, he was probably talking about you because you like to get shit done. You consider yourself the HBIC because you’re pretty determined, and the immense amount of passion you have for everything you do makes you one of the hardest working people you know. Your stubborn nature is what helps you keep on keeping on when others would give up, which is why you’re likely to be an entrepreneur or business owner.


Nobody can tell you what to do. Whatever you do for a living needs to provide you with the option to be free to do anything you want to do, how you want to do it. There’s no such thing as a typical day at work for you. You’re a ball of energy, and you can’t stand to be doing the exact same thing every day for an extended amount of time. You would make a great event planner or choreographer.


You’re super maternal and nurturing to everyone around you. You’re a loyal friend and would literally kick someone’s ass if they ever tried to mess with your family. And that’s the great thing about you. You harness a lot of emotions and wear your heart on your sleeve, but you’re protective of everyone you know, including yourself—which is why you can go from zero to 100 real quick if the opportunity presents itself. You have a future in education or social work.


Everything has to be about you, like, 99.9 percent of the time. You’re always the life of the party because you have a spirit that can literally change everyone’s mood. You also feel things pretty deeply, and you’re kind of melodramatic—not to mention that you always need people in your life who will look up to you and admire you for how hard you work. Your desire to be the center of attention is what will make you a great actor or actress. You might even have a future in reality TV.


You share a Zodiac sign with Beyoncé, so consider yourself lucky because you guys are pretty much the same person. While some people may act off of their emotions, everything you do is based on logic and rationality. You’re known for being a perfectionist, and you’re super detail-oriented. You analyze every project you start to the fullest extent before you even think about letting people see the finished product. You were born to be a writer or editor.


You’re charming You know how to use what you’ve got to get what you want from people, but you also know how to do it in a friendly manner. You strive to make the people around you happy, and you always want people to feel like they’re a part of something. But sometimes you’re way too indecisive, which causes you to break in the face of making important decisions and just do what people want you to do. You’re pretty much a natural when it comes to negotiating which is why you would make a great salesperson or real estate agent.


You’re independent, and you have no problem being the lone wolf. Your introverted nature is also what makes you so intense and hungry for power. Who needs a squad when you can just take over the world instead? You would do anything for a paycheck, and you don’t care how many people you piss off because of it. On top of that, you’re also a great leader who would work best in a position of power that will make a big impact on the world. Your hunger for money and power would make you a great lawyer.


You need to be in an adventurous environment that excites you and keeps people guessing. You’re honest and opinionated, and you never hold back when it comes to doing what you love. You’d work best in a career that allows you to travel the world, meet new people and make decisions. You should consider a career in advertising or public relations.

So, are you ready to send in your resume? The next time you’re in need of some career advice, consider what sign you were born under and you may just be surprised at what you find.
