Career is an important part of many people’s lives.
But just because it’s usually income focused, doesn’t mean that people can’t find some joy in their careers.
While the type and industry of one’s career can be important, how someone approaches their career and shapes their place in the business can also be a big determinant in finding happiness in the workplace.
Here are a few easy steps to follow, depending on your zodiac sign, in order to find happiness in your career.
Blazing into first place, Aries is eager to find worth in her work. Even if they are in technical or analytical careers, those born under this sign desire to seek out their own path. Aries is a Cardinal (active) fire sign, which means that those who fall under this sign find the most happiness when they are the ones leading.
Those born under the Aries sign should avoid being shy about their desires in work and taking on passive roles. They were born to lead and take charge of groups, or head projects. They are full of innovative and ambitious idea.
However, those who fall under the Aries sign must always work to earn their position in the spotlight. Their natural-born talents are something they must actively showcase in order to get into a position that they want.
They cannot expect to just be given a leadership position straight away. Earning their right to lead a group will feel more fulfilling anyway. It is also important to understand that while they are blessed with natural talents, they shouldn’t let their egos get in the way of learning and continuously improving their own leadership abilities.
Coming in second, Taurus is ready to hunker down into any sort of career and carve out a comfortable niche.
Taurus is a Fixed (consistent) earth sign, which means that Taurians are dependable workers, even though they tend to take their time with assignments.
It can be hard for Taurians to figure out what makes them happy in their career. As long as they are in a stable industry, they can often endure anything that comes their way. However, even the hardworking Taurus deserves to find happiness career-wise.
The easiest way is to ensure that their current career and projects align with Taurus’ softer side. Many Taurians find happiness in managing the visual side of projects or working on environmentally sustainable solutions to preserve nature. Charitable endeavors often call out to them as well.
They have an eye for beauty and all things green. Their ideas surrounding these topics shouldn’t be just swept aside either. Taurians can bring so much more to the table when seeking out these sorts of projects, all while enjoying their careers through these mediums.
When Taurians are out and about, they can count on Clinique’s Even Better Refresh Hydrating and Repairing Makeup foundation, which provides full coverage for 24 hours and a bright, natural-looking finish while helping to keep your skin plumped and hydrated. Great for those who need lasting makeup, especially if you have little to no time for touch-ups in between.
The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is known for being witty and clever, and those born under this sign can use their charm to great advantage in their careers. Gemini is a Mutable (changing) air sign, which means that Geminis often find it easy to form relationships in the workplace with their humour and magnetic personality.
Their animated and lively personality is not just their greatest strength, but also how they can find happiness in their career. Despite their charm, Geminis can easily become bored when they aren’t being stimulated or entertained at work.
That’s why Geminis need to make sure that they avoid getting stuck in a routine or dealing with tedious assignments. Instead, they should focus on work that makes use of their communication skills, and allows them to improvise and socialise freely.
When it comes to networking, it helps to put your best face forward. Clinique’s Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 is a moderate-coverage foundation with a “flawless” finish that helps to even out skin tone with regular use. Plus, it is sweat- and humidity-resistant – something that those living in Singapore’s weather can be sure to appreciate.
The fourth sign of the zodiac, Cancer is a true nurturer in the workplace. Cancer is a Cardinal (active) water sign, which means that Cancerians know how to bring out the best in those around them.
Sometimes, they are so good at this that people take them for granted. There are many things that Cancerians can do to ensure that they can find happiness in their career, but the most important thing is to not allow themselves to become overwhelmed.
Taking out some time to reflect and appreciate their own accomplishments can do wonders for Cancerians, both emotionally and in how they work.
It is also important that they find an environment where their work is appreciated. Constructive criticism can be beneficial, but too much criticism and not enough praise will do more harm than good. Therefore, Cancerians need to make sure they are properly credited, and that their successes receive recognition.
The fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo has no trouble climbing the career ladder. Leo is a Fixed (consistent) Fire sign, which means that Leos usually have no problem making sure they’re comfortable where they are.
Still, Leos sometimes need a little help to get to where they are meant to be. While Leos have many bright ideas and visions for the future, they need to be as tough as a lion to bring their dreams to fruition.
Though they have a good bite when the situation calls for it, they may need to develop a tougher skin and learn to work with others. In order to find happiness in their careers, Leos will need to make physical accomplishments, so they have something to show for their effort.
This is best accomplished when they can work in groups with others, or even be a leader to them.
At the same time, Leos need to learn to respect authority, and take criticism with some tact and understanding. When they learn to focus on self-improvement, they will receive the praise they desire and find the happiness that they seek in their careers.
The sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo sometimes goes unnoticed in the workplace.
Virgo is a Mutable (changing) earth sign, which means that Virgos are strict and detailed professionals who prefer to work on their own.
Virgos may not think that the office is a place that one can find happiness in, but they can still be productive individuals when they enjoy themselves. And this is where they must start to make changes to their own thinking and expectations.
They tend to set very high expectations for themselves and others. While, being a perfectionist isn’t completely a bad thing, the high standards Virgos hold themselves to can end up stifling themselves.
Therefore, they need to learn to relax and not hold themselves up to such high expectations. One effective way of relaxing is to take nature walks. If you don’t want to go entirely bare-faced on those walks, try Clinique’s Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15. It is a lightweight liquid foundation (you wouldn’t want to pile on makeup that’s too heavy when doing an outdoor activity) that gives skin a radiant, glowy finish.
The seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra is the charismatic beauty of the workplace.
Libra is a Cardinal (active) air sign, and Librans possess a natural charm that makes them popular in their careers – everybody wants to work with a Libra.
However, being popular doesn’t always equate to being happy. In order for Librans to find their happiness and passions, they need to rely on their strengths and interests. Librans value harmony in the workplace, but can sometimes spend too much time focused on others instead of themselves.
They must learn to pay attention to their own work ethics and career goals. It is okay to be a bit selfish in the workplace. Librans have a diplomatic and harmony-seeking nature, which allows them to socialise and work well with others, but they also need to remember to seek out their own dreams.
Librans need to find happiness in the workplace through themselves, instead of trying to find it through others. There is a lot that Librans can accomplish, if only they start seeing the productive side of their skills and abilities.
The eighth sign of the zodiac is a closed book in the workplace, and a Scorpio’s career intentions can be hard to decipher at first. Scorpio is a Fixed (consistent) water sign, and Scorpios are determined to prove their worth through their work and ability.
They can be very focused on their goals, and very reluctant to accept help offered by those they are unfamiliar with. In order to find happiness though, they must learn to let down their guard and accept support from their colleagues or even advisers.
Once they learn to work with others, Scorpios will not only find themselves happier, but also find that they are having a much easier time in advancing their careers. This progress will only add to their happiness, and help them understand the scope of their work better.
When connecting with others, it’s important that Scorpios do not do it solely for work progression. This intention will not work to their advantage. Instead, the desire to work with others should be genuine and for the benefit of everyone.
The ninth sign of the zodiacs, Sagittarius might already have no trouble finding happiness in the workplace. Sagittarius is a Mutable (changing) fire sign, and it is rare that those born under this sign will pursue anything that they dislike or that does not give some form of fulfilment.
It is easy, however, for Sagittarians to mistake boredom as unhappiness in their career. They can be prone to jumping to something new without seeing their current path all the way through.
Though they can find happiness in the short run, they may miss out on long-term happiness in their careers.
Therefore, it is important that Sagittarians learn to commit to their careers and dreams. This can be done in several ways. For instance, helping others can make a mundane job feel more fulfilling. They can also work on improving themselves.
Whatever the case, Sagittarians must always find a way to grow in their career in whatever form. When they are able to achieve continuous growth, they may be able to find unending happiness in their careers.
The 10th sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is the very definition of a career-orientated person. Capricorn is a Fixed (consistent) Earth sign, and they are the soldiers of the workplace. always focused on what’s required of them regardless of distraction.
Advancing their careers bring Capricorns the most joy.
Being able to look back and count the number of times they’ve been promoted or assigned an important task is something that Capricorns like to do. But there are a few things that they must learn to watch out for.
Firstly, while it’s okay to be productive, they must learn to give guidance to others as well. Capricorns cannot do everything, so they must learn to delegate and assign tasks.
Secondly, they should also be cautious not to overwork themselves, as they can easily burn out with their strict work schedule.
Keeping these two rules in mind can make a world of difference for Capricorns in their careers. It is also the easiest way for them to find happiness in the workplace.
The electrifying 11th sign of the zodiac, Aquarius is always looking for some form of fulfilment both in and out of the workplace. Aquarius is a Fixed (consistent) air sign, so Aquarians may sometimes be very indecisive about their careers as they want to be sure that it’s something they’ll enjoy.
Aquarians should seek out careers that give them the freedom to speak their mind and share their ideas. Being able to express themselves is the most important. To Aquarians, what they choose to do will define part of who they are.
It is important that they avoid being too indecisive though. Sometimes, how they go about carrying out their careers matters more than what career they go into. Even if they are currently in a very restrictive career, they should remember that their creative and innovative mindset will always allow them a way to think outside of the box, and make their careers their own.
As long as they can always trust in themselves and their individuality, they will be able to find their own happiness in their careers, no matter what industry they choose to work in.
The 12th sign of the zodiac, Pisces display a soft and caring side in the workplace. Pisces is a Mutable (changing) water sign, and people look to Pisceans for insights that they can’t find anywhere else.
Piscean are very focused on the spiritual and intangible side of their careers. They wish to make an impact on the world that can’t be measured with money or numbers. Making a difference in someone’s life is something like a mission to them.
Therefore, to find happiness, they should consider taking up philanthropic activities, or work towards creating a good environment for their colleagues. Taking on extra work outside of their assigned activities, as long as it doesn’t overload them, can help make their careers more memorable.
Freedom is another strong appeal to Pisceans. They can thrive when allowed to pursue their own ambitions without anything interference. If possible, Pisceans should seek out some freedom in their careers, or at least find positions that give them authority to call the shots.
