Career Tips for Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces — Water Signs

Posted on June 10, 2016

As a water sign, you go through life feeling your way, rather than thinking or reasoning things through. If it feels good, do it; if it doesn′t, then don′t! Yes, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, I′m talking to you! You′re naturally intuitive (you′d probably make a good psychic) and you′ve got a ‘sixth sense′ that tells you when things are right and when you′re not where you need to be. You just need to learn to pay attention to those hunches a bit more to get you on the right career track.

You need to make a conscious effort not to take on the mood of your co-workers or your work situation. It′s very easy for you to get down if people around you are down, or for you to get disgruntled or crabby of those you work with are not in the best of moods. This isn′t going to go down well with management — people like to work with those who are cheerful about their tasks. It′s going to be harder for you than for others to stay contented when everyone around you is getting an attack of the blues, but it is something you′ll need to learn how to do if you want to climb the professional ladder.

The upside to this is you′ve got an uncanny knack of knowing what to do or say at just the right time to diffuse situations, to come up with good ideas, or to bring motivation into events and meetings. You′ll be valued for that, and it is something that you can easily turn to your advantage. You′ve got a natural empathy for people, and when you extend that to your colleagues you can make yourself very valuable indeed. You′ll soon court favor with the management, and get yourself recognized as someone who′s an asset to the company. Just don′t let all that adoration go to your head.

Cancer — The Natural Nurturer

Cancers know, at their core, that people never forget how you made them feel. You go out of your way to be kind and compassionate and understanding. Nurturing and caring for others comes naturally to you. You′re ruled by the Moon, which rules emotions, intuition, and empathy.

As a Cancer, you′re going to have to learn to deal with your shell. Yes, you can escape into it, but you′ll never get the promotion you seek if you do. If you abandon your shell completely, then where will you go when life gets too hard for your tender heart? There has to be a balance, otherwise the unpleasant people where you work could well make your life miserable.

Your greatest asset for your career is the way that you can nurture your colleagues and bring a tranquility to the workplace. You have to watch your own moods, though, because you′ll pick up on the atmospheres from others and it will mirror in your own emotions. You′re not one to actively chase promotion and attention, and you may have to assert yourself to draw into your life the income that you desire to have.

Ideal Careers for Cancer: Chef or cook, nurse or home help, anything to do with homemaking or caring for others.

Scorpio — The Need to Know

Scorpio is the intense one of the water signs. You like to probe. You love a good mystery. You are enigmatic, and you′re intrigued by what makes things (and people) tick. You have to know “why”, and even then, you′ll find another aspect of the situation that you need to know more about. Ruled by Pluto, you′re deep, mysterious and ambitous. Anything that puts your inquisitive mind to work will satisfy your curiosity as well as earn you good money.

Your self-assurance will win you favors with bosses and co-workers alike, but don′t get too full of yourself. Confidence can easily be mistaken for arrogance, especially if you′re just easing into a new position and a new workplace community. You′ve got the ability to keep a cool exterior, no matter how your feelings may be raging inside. This gives you the upperhand, because very few will be able to guess what′s behind your intense gaze.

It′s your steady exterior and your determination that will take you to the pinnacle of your success. You′re sincere and you′re truthful, and you don′t buy into the workplace gossip or chitchat. You′re there for one reason, and that reason is to earn the money you need to create the life you want to live. You′re an interesting mixture of charm and intrigue, and that′s going to catch the eyes of the people who can help you up the ladder of success.

Ideal Careers for Scorpio: Private detective, politics, science, taxes or even forensics.

Pisces — The Hidden Advantage

Pisces brings up the tail end of the zodiac. If Pisces is your Sun sign, then you embody the proverbial still waters that run deep. You are usually quite happy to take the shape of whatever situation you′re poured into. You tend to go with the flow, and are often quite content to let others lead. You like the finer things in life, but you also realize that while money makes things convenient, it doesn′t solve all your problems. You′re ruled by Neptune, which intensifies your need to embrace your spirituality.

Your advantage is going to come through your natural ability to perceive what others might miss. You are capable of connecting the abstract with the tangible, and coming up with creative ways to problem solve. You don′t get in too much of a lather about things, and while you appreciate the little luxuries of life, you′re not so determined to acquire them that you forget to enjoy the journey along the way.

While it may be easiest for you to just take each day as it comes where you work, you′re real potential is not going to be reached until you start to swim upstream a bit. You need to rise to the challenges, not let them wash over you. If you′re going to be highly successful in your chosen field, then you are going to have to step out of the box a bit, push beyond your comfort zone, and challenge yourself to do more than you thought you were going to. This is what will lead you to doors opening, opportunity knocking, and the reliable income that the practical side of your personality needs.

Ideal Careers for Pisces: The ministry, pharmaceuticals, any of the creative arts, or something dealing with institutions such as night care assistant or prison guard.

Picking your career by your zodiac sign is easy when you understand how the elements play into your true personality style and career horoscopes. Just remember that your Sun sign is only one aspect of who you are — so if these descriptions don′t fit, it′s because another area of your birth chart is stronger when it comes to how you′re going to earn your living. At the end of the day, if you love what you do, it will be easier for you to make money and be a success in your career, because people are always drawn to those who are enjoying their lives.
