Your Next Big Career Move, According To Your Star Sign

Published

on

There are few occasions in life that require as much deliberation as deciding one’s next big career move.

From the right way to ask for a pay rise to seriously considering starting your side hustle, career moves are something we tend to go mentally back-and-forth over for quite a long time. And more often than not, we spend so much time contemplating that we don’t do anything at all.

That being said, astrology can help. If you’re game to leave the decision-making to the stars so you can focus on the ‘take action’ part, your horoscope might just be able to get you where you want to go.

Curious to know what your next big career move is, according to your star sign? Scroll on to find out.

Aries: Emphasise upskilling

No matter where it is you want to go next, Aries, we strongly recommend adding a few new skills to your resume. It’s time for you to take stock of your goals, and consider new ways to reach them. And it never hurts to have some extra knowledge in your arsenal. Work in online marketing? Try learning some basic coding. Personal trainer? Add a yoga qualification. The opportunities are endless.

Taurus: Ask for a pay rise

You’re shining right now, Taurus, and the stars think so too. Your ability for expansion is potent right now with Jupiter and Uranus making a conjunction in your sign, making it a good time to level up in some way. Need some tips on how to ask for a raise? See here. (And make sure you wear this colour when you do so.)

Gemini: Get closer to your team

Camaraderie is the name of the game, Gemini. It’s time to get to know your colleagues as people, not workmates, especially as you’re only going to be spending more time together. Try organising a meetup or drinks with your work crew if possible, or at the very least, spend more time getting to know each person on an individual basis (talking about their pets is a good way to start).

Cancer: Start a side hustle

If you’ve been dreaming of starting a creative side hustle, Cancer, now is the time to do it. Whether it’s purely for extra cash or to revive old hobbies while making some moolah, your brain and bank balance will more than appreciate the shift in focus.

Leo: Start looking for a new job

We’re not saying to quit your current job and leave your employer high and dry to start hunting around, Leo. All we’re saying is, if you’re not quite satisfied in your current role or if you’ve lost sight of where it is you want to go in the next five years, a little peek at LinkedIn to see what’s out there and regain some perspective won’t go astray. It’s time for you to broaden your idea of what you can achieve, and start laying some groundwork for grander ambitions.

As the saying goes, “Champions eat feedback for breakfast”, and you Virgo, are a champion. Moreover, bosses love when their employees show initiative towards improving their own performance, so not only will you possibly get some valuable tips to advance your career, but you’ll gain some extra admiration in your boss’ eyes. Work for yourself? Consider taking some time to audit your own work. Your business will be better for it.

Libra: Get a mentor (or reach out to the one you have)

You’ve been doing a lot by yourself, Libra, but it could be time to consult someone ‘older and wiser’. We all need a little help now and then. For your next major career move, seek out the help of a wise mentor in your industry and focus on cultivating a connection you can rely on when you need help with tough work decisions.

You’ve been burning the candle at both ends, Scorpio, and while a vacation might not seem like a ‘career move’, it is definitely one for your wellbeing and that will translate in the workplace when you return. It doesn’t have to be a huge overseas trip (though if you need help deciding, this guide will come in handy), a week or so away from work will do the job.

Sagittarius: Focus on networking

Banish the up-and-down feelings you’ve been having about work, Scorpio, and start looking at things strategically. Besides working smarter and not harder in your actual role, you should revise your game plan to make networking a major focus. Go to external industry events, have a good LinkedIn stalk, go to work drinks and make chit-chat around the water cooler. It’s all going to pay off in the long run.

Aquarius: Put your hand up for the big project

It’s time for a challenge, Aquarius, you’re ready for it. Keep an eye out for new opportunities you can be part of at work, be it a new initiative or a project you can put your hand up for. Where possible, try and angle for a leadership position that showcases your personal skills set.

Capricorn: Get a work wife (or spend time with the one you have)

If you haven’t already got a work wife, Capricorn, it’s high time you found one. The ultimate venting buddy and workplace confidant, having a work wife will help alleviate a lot of the stress you’ve been experiencing with your job. And while having one in your actual workplace is the ideal scenario, do not fear if there are no viable candidates. Consider calling a close friend who has also been struggling with work to swap stories.

Pisces: Start angling for a promotion

Keep showing your enthusiasm at work, Pisces, because good things are on the horizon. While it might not be quite time for a promotion, you should start planting the seed. Dress to impress, roll up your sleeves, go the extra mile and start keeping a solid track of your performance (if you can do it with hard data, even better), because it will all come in handy when you push to level up.
