Out in Front: Aries and Career

Out in Front: Aries and Career Petesaloutos | Dreamstime.com

 OK, what I’m about to say may come as a surprise to you… Ready? Are you really sure that you’re ready?

Aries likes to be first. There, I said it. The astrological bombshell of the day. Aries likes to be out in front.

This is fine if you have the Sun or Ascendant in Aries, you will (most probably) admit readily that you love competition, challenge and results. In your heart you are aware that you are not the most consistent finisher in the pack, but will always be first out of the starting blocks.

But what if you have Aries on the cusp of the 10th, or the Midheaven? What if Aries rules your career? This one is a little more difficult to call. Why? Because if Aries is ruling your career, it is most likely that you will have Cancer on the Ascendant, and Cancer Rising people are naturally shy and, dare I say it, introverted.

And shy you may be- in every area except your work. When you are out there in the world, you are determined to be the best that you can be at what you do.

With Aries in the career zone, you attack your public life with an Arian daring and indomitable will. There is also an impulsiveness in this area which may be contrary to your usual caution and you may find yourself jumping into something feet first and without thinking.

Mars is the planet that rules your career, and this is where your energies are directed- regardless of where Mars resides in your chart. When it comes to work, you readily respond to, and are excited by, challenge. While your tendency may be to retreat to your shell in other parts of your life, when your career is in focus, you are not afraid to charge ahead.

So, when it comes to career choices for Aries or those with Aries on the cusp of the 10th?

Think about things to do with fire and heat: anything that fights it, works with it, contains it or uses it.

Think about things to do with leadership: anything to do with corporate leadership

Think about things to do with Mars: anything to do with the military, sports or moving body parts.
