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 recognize 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
The flip: 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.

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.

Common careers: public relations specialist, creative director in advertising, journalist, actor, social media strategist, events organizer, speaker, mixologist.
The flip: Geminis actually have a very good understanding of technical terms and concepts.
