What Does Your Star Sign Say About Your Career Style?

Your sun sign reveals a lot about your potential, career aspirations, and working style. It acknowledges your compatibility with coworkers and your ability to work well with them. Your individual birthday, time of birth and birth chart can tell you more specific things about your working potential and your working motivations, as it unlocks Jupiter the planet of good luck, optimism, success, and generosity. Still, your sun sign also says a lot about your capabilities, especially regarding the people you will work best with. Particular star signs are meant to possess certain skills, which pertain to your Astrology and relate to others in different ways.

By now you are probably familiar with the four elements of Astrology: Fire, air, earth, and water. These elements take on different attributes, which express themselves in unique and often contrasting ways in the workplace.

Astrological Elements

Air: the most chill of all the signs, easy-going and indecisive

Fire: The most intense signs, outgoing, bold and confident

Earth: The most stable of all the signs, rational, grounded, logical

Water: The most emotional signs, insecure, intuitive and nurturing

Elements play a big role in how well we connect. Different elements work better together than others. Keep in mind that there are those who are born on the cusp of other signs, which gives them duality (if you are born within ten days of another sign, this is you so please read both horoscopes), and the ability to get along with a more diverse range of people.

Here’s how zodiac signs perform in the workspace. 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries will shine in charge. As first in the zodiac, Aries is a natural born leader.  Naturally, Aries likes to take on the boss role.
