Career Tips for Aries, Leo & Sagittarius — Fire Signs
Fire Signs typically do well in careers where they really have the chance to be in the spotlight. If you’re a fire sign, you like creative work — something that shows off how ingenious you can be. You’ll awaken in the morning thinking of new ways to make money, and also whether you can have fun doing it! You’re usually very good at what you set your mind to doing. If you can find a way to make money from what you do for fun, then you’ll never “work” a day in your life!
You won’t have much trouble fitting in with others. Fire signs genuinely like to be around people. Your warmth and charm can draw others to you, for they will see the confidence in you, and trust you to get the job done. You easily inspire others to do their best, until someone upsets you and you lose your temper. Then, everything can go haywire for a while. If you’re going to have any obstacles when it comes to job security, it’s that fiery temper!
People born under the elemental fire signs are very goal oriented. You like to manage and be in charge. When things don’t go your way, you can get down and pessimistic and have some trouble lifting yourself back up again. The trick is trying not to let things get you down in the first place. And if they do, bouncing back quickly. That’s going to lead you to the position where you can make real progress, doing something you feel passionate about.

Aries — The Assertive Type
Aries are naturally creative self-starters. You’re not necessarily a leader, but you’re not a follower either. You’d be great at starting up your own business, or even helping others to start up theirs. Your enthusiasm for things inspires other people, and can be an asset on your way to success. The ruling planet for Aries is Mars, so you need to choose a profession where your energy and your assertiveness are going to be an asset rather than a liability.
Your energy and your assertiveness can really get you where you want to go in your career. People usually see you as friendly and outgoing, and you’re always going to stick up for what you think is right. You’re fair, but in your ambition to reach your goals and get ahead, you can be a bit tactless when dealing with others and that can cause some friction in the workplace. Your saving grace is that you’re so charming people will usually forgive you and reestablish the social norm without much upheaval.
Your raw enthusiasm for life can create a lack of stability around your career, because there’s so much to experience and you don’t want to miss anything. You have many interest and friends, and you’re dedicated to your pursuits. You can get impatient though, and that’s something that’s going to have to be cultivated if you’re going to draw to you the earning potential that your charm has the power to bring you. Keep your ego in check, and you can go far!
Ideal Careers for Aries: Professions that deal with fire (welding, firefighting, law enforcement or the military), and anything creative, adventurous or inspirational.
Leo — The Natural Leader
Leos are steady and stable. You like people to pay attention to you. You want to matter. You genuinely care about others and want to see them succeed, just as much as you want to succeed. You’d be a great boss, and do well in a position where others look up to you and are inspired by you. The Sun is the ruling planet for Leo, and you need a position where your warmth and light can shine just as bright.
Shining your light to others can really open career doors for you. People will naturally gravitate to your gregariousness and your warmth. You do need to watch your moods, though — you can be all enthusiastic about a project one minute, and completely lethargic towards it the next. You also need to be the center of focus much of the time, and if you’re going for management or authority positions, great! However, this can make it hard for you to fit in with the crowd if you’re just going to be one of the team.
You like to listen to others and help them with their problems, but again, make sure that you’re willing to lead by example. You don’t want to appear controversial or hypocritical! Your natural leadership skills make it easy for you to take charge, but you need to be careful that others don’t see you as being bossy or arrogant. Potential employers will love the warmth and the confidence that you can bring to their business; you just need to make sure that you don’t come on too strong!
Ideal Careers for Leos: The leisure industry, working with children, education or any position where you’re the center of attention.
Sagittarius — The Philosopher
Sagittarius is the third fire sign. Your biggest hurdle to your success is going to be staying in one place long enough to show others what you’re made of! You like to travel, you like variety and you need a job that offers freedom and diversity — one that doesn’t make you feel tied down. You need a new challenge every day. Jupiter is your ruling planet, and you need a career that is always going to grow and expand with your interests.
Your itchy feet are offset by your contagious optimism, and it will be easy for folks to like you. You’re always honest, even if your sometimes unthinkingly blunt with the way that you share your thoughts. You always mean well, and that will help to soothe any hurt feelings caused by your lack of tact. Employers know that they can count on you to tell them the truth, and not be swayed by any gossip or hearsay. You’ve got a great sense of humor, and a strong intellect. You take a unique approach to problem solving, and all of this combines to make you a very valuable team player.
Even though you fit in well with others, you’re not really going to be content with being just one of the gang. Your philosophies and your curiosity are more important to you than mundane responsibilities, and in order to draw to you the money you seek to earn, you’re going to have to find a way to combine this otherwise you could get rebellious and irritable. You usually control your temper, but when it bursts out it’s not pretty, and could do some damage when it comes to your relationship with your colleagues. You’re going to need a place where you can feel independent and free, and where you’re doing something that interests you enough that you want to stay there and do the best you can.
Ideal Careers for Sagittarius: Education, travel, philosophy, philanthropy, theology.
