What does your zodiac sign say about your work-style and which careers are you suited to? Also, what are your hidden talents and unexpected career options?
You’re extroverted so anything that involves showing off your talents or expressing yourself will appeal to you. Many Aries have ambitions to make it big and have the drive to do that.
You’re a great leader and others are quick to recognise and respect your aura of leadership. You’re quite versatile, which means that you would suit many varied industries but you have to be careful as you have a very limited attention span.
If you want to switch industries, make sure your core competency remains the same; you want your years in the workforce to accumulate and make you an expert. You have zero patience for painting or photography or working at the florist.
Common careers: CEO/leadership roles, politician, entrepreneur, business development manager, professor.
Independent, quick-witted with good ideas, you can also be spontaneous when required. You also like doing things solo rather than in a group, so perhaps team environments are not your thing.
You’re a tricky sign. You can work hard, but you can also be lazy. However, you’re rather materialistic and like your creature comforts, plus, you’re very determined so you will aim high and chances are you will find success.
You also like stability and find comfort in familiarity and routines. Out of all the earth signs who are pragmatic and sensible, you are most in tune with your feelings and with managing emotions. While you do have a temper, it does take a long time to build.
Your colleagues will love how dependable and even-tempered you are. Be careful to recognise when you’re in a rut at work because your stubbornness and refusal to budge could result in denial and a halted career. If you’re in a job that doesn’t appreciate you, leave.
Common careers: doctor (general practitioner), retail manager or entrepreneur, educator, banker, real estate agent, urban gardener, project manager
You will find careers which can take sudden unexpected turns such as stockbroking or neuro-surgery to be too nauseating, but patience is a virtue of yours, and you’d be the kind to start an enterprise or project and painstakingly nurture its growth. Yes, we could tell by seeing how you aced Farmville! Ruled by Venus, you also have an eye for beautiful things.
Unexpected careers: art gallery owner/curator, photographer, filmmaker, interior designer, makeup artist, baker, sculptor
You’ve often been described as hyperactive and need constant intellectual stimulation. You’re smart, quick-witted and have the best comebacks.
You enjoy a busy and fast paced environment, and are not usually found in a boring office cubicle. Geminis are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication so you are able to connect in many different ways. You’re also charming and make friends easily; you thrive in social situations.
You like to be connected to everyone, so the internet is your friend. You’re also very creative and will have many original ideas in your lifetime. However, as we know, you have another face, which means that sometimes you will be moody and not feel like working, especially if the job’s starting to feel like it’s cramping your freedom.

You need to be free. You also have the gift of the gab, so anything that requires talking a lot will suit you.
Common careers: public relations specialist, creative director in advertising,
journalist, actor, social media strategist, events organiser, speaker, mixologist.
Geminis actually have a very good understanding of technical terms and concepts. Being a scientist is out of the question (too many days spent cooped up in dark labs and no patience for experiments to yield results). Forensics and anything top secret such as being an FBI agent, private investigator or spy is also out of the question because, well, the blab.
Unexpected careers: concert musicians, mathematicians, app developers, space engineers, stockbroker, hedge fund manager, pilot
Deeply intuitive and sentimental, you keep your feelings away in your hard shell and never really reveal your true self. Colleagues may have a hard time getting to know you.
However, you are very sympathetic, loyal and become fiercely protective of people you are attached to. So, whether you’re part of a team, or you’re the CEO – your colleagues are lucky that they will always have you on their side. You’re also very caring and nurturing and will always get the job done.
But just as you are quick to help others, you are also quick to avoid conflict, so do take care how you manage conflict in the workplace. Ensure that you voice your needs or speak up on unjust situations, don’t just absorb all that negativity and slink away.
You also have a lot of creative ideas and emotions to express. Needless to say, you’re prudent and a whiz when it comes to budgets, investments and controlling money.
Common careers: doctor/nurse or veterinarian, singer, painter, therapist, poet, stage manager or producer, financial controller, banker, military leader/officer.
The flip: You usually perform better alone than when surrounded by other people. You may also stray away from the soppy, watery artistic stuff and go into more strategic and innovative side of things, like your fellow Cancerian, Elon Musk. Finally, injustice really gets your pincers snapping, and you will fight for causes you strongly believe in, like Angie Jolie.
Uncommon careers: Inventor, judge, mysterious superhero (think Batman), activist.
