The seemingly never-ending process of trying to get one's sh*t together job-wise can be a real pain. Like, you probably know which kinds of gigs you'll love and which ones you'll hate, but that's definitely not enough to be the basis of one's entire career path. 

Instead of leaving it up to chance, let the stars guide you and your career: choose one that fits you perfectly based on your zodiac sign!

Read on to find out which jobs fit your strengths and weaknesses as determined by the position of the Sun under which you were born.

Aries: March 21 to April 19

Aries: March 21 to April 19

Ariens are very strong-willed, incredibly competitive, and highly energetic, which is why they'd do best in sales positions where they have to reach certain monthly (maybe even weekly) goals. But they're also known for their bravery and strength, making positions like a firefighter, a policeman, or a nurse great options, too.

Taurus: April 20 to May 20

Taurus: April 20 to May 20

Taureans LOVE a good routine and stability, stability, stability. When they combine that with their passion for all things creative, they truly start to thrive. Interior design, cosmetology, architecture, and music are all right up their alley.

Gemini: May 21 to June 20

Gemini: May 21 to June 20

Gemini need constant stimulation — i.e., a job that can both keep them interested and challenge them. If you're one of them, be sure to look into event planning, public relations, and journalism. These jobs exist in fast-paced environments and usually require a decent amount of travel — another thing Gemini love. 

Cancer: June 21 to July 22

Cancer: June 21 to July 22

Cancers are natural-born caregivers and need a job that will allow them to use those gifts. A special ed teacher, a social worker, a lawyer, or maybe even a health and wellness trainer would all be perfect jobs for this protective and abundantly kind zodiac sign. 

Leo: July 23 to August 22

Leo: July 23 to August 22

More like "CEO," am I right?

But for real though: Leos need to be running the show. It's not that they can't work in a team-oriented environment, but in some way, shape or form, they need to be leading a pack. If you're a Leo, be sure to look into real estate, publicity, and reality TV.

Virgo: August 23 to September 22

Virgo: August 23 to September 22

Seeing as though Virgos are meticulous and smart AF, they'd do best as statisticians, nutritionists, or researchers — any job where details are everything.

Libra: September 23 to October 22

Libra: September 23 to October 22

The charismatic Libra needs to be in the spotlight, STAT. Jobs in politics are perfect for people born under this bold sign — or, if that sounds like too much responsibility, they should look into something in customer service or advising where they'll be able to take full advantage of their natural ability to make people happy. 

Scorpio: October 23 to November 21

Scorpio: October 23 to November 21

Scorpios are crazy analytical, possessing a knack for efficient problem-solving and an ability to see things the average person can't. If you're born under this feisty sign, you should be a detective, lawyer, or surgeon.

Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21

Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21

Contrary to Taureans, there's nothing a Sagittarius hates more than stability. While easygoing and a delight to be around, people born under this sign need to be able to wake up to something different every day. I know a camp counselor might not pay the bills, but that would be the perfect job for this sign. A gig as an ESL teacher abroad, a missionary, or a travel writer would also give Sagittarius that adventure vibe they crave.

Capricorn: December 22 to January 19

Capricorn: December 22 to January 19

This sign is determined, patient, and LOVES to take on responsibilities, making jobs that involve skill or managerial experience ideal for them. Look into gigs in computer programming or finance if you're one of them.
