Ever wonder where you fit in the grand scheme of things in the work-a-day world? Understanding the ideal environment for you can help you make the best choices about what kind of job to pursue. Whether you fit into a traditional career path or something more unusual, you can draw upon on insight from the planets to help guide your path to success.
If you’re interested in the creative or healing arts, Neptune is probably your career planet. Neptune represents magic, mystery, compassion and spirituality. You’ll be driven by a desire to help others rather than a compulsion to make money. Your imagination and creative talents are strong, as is your ability to empathize with those in need. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces excel in Neptune careers.
If you long for an office cubicle, a 9 to 5 schedule and a steady paycheck, you’re most likely influenced by Saturn, which rules over tradition, commitment and time. Saturn jobs are steady and predictable, with few surprises. Plan to play by the rules and pay your dues because a Saturn job demands hard work and effort before you reap any rewards. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn usually do the best in Saturn-influenced positions.
If you find it hard to work for others, and thrive on challenges and change, Uranus is probably the planet influencing your work preferences. Self-employment is probably your best bet for success, though you can also find rewarding work in sales or computers where you have more flexibility to set your own schedule. Uranian work is usually innovative so don’t be afraid to try something new to succeed. Air and Fire signs Aquarius, Gemini, Aries and Sagittarius thrive in Uranian fields.
If Pluto influences you, power is the theme of your career. You’ll be drawn to jobs that allow you to transform the world around you, though you may remain behind the scenes. Issues of life and death are usually strong in Pluto’s realm and therefore politics, law, medicine and high finance are some of the most common Plutonian careers. Pluto positions are often quite financially rewarding but ultimately it’s the power that remains the main draw. Fire sign Leo, Water sign Scorpio and Earth sign Capricorn are all drawn to the allure of Pluto’s intensity.
