Indeed, what you do for a living doesn’t define you – in fact, and it’s only one aspect of who you are as an individual. However, your career is something that can provide happiness and fulfillment in your life when you learn to follow the beat of your unique heart!

Each and every person is different, and different people flourish under different circumstances. And as a Water sign, there are certain jobs, positions, and career paths that will naturally encourage you to grow and become the person you have always been meant to be.

Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces – follow their hearts in most situations, as their connection to their instincts is remarkably strong. You’re naturally intuitive, and your “sixth sense” is always filling you in on the hidden or unseen aspects of life - you may even be a little psychic! Your intuition tells you when something is right for you, and you’re most likely to blossom in a career that allows you to utilize these instincts.

Creativity is another cornerstone of the signs ruled by the element of Water. You want to do something in life that allows you to express yourself and your emotions in an artistic manner. And frankly, the world deserves to see the beautiful art that you create.

Water signs are sensitive to others’ moods, and you probably remember more than one occasion where someone else’s bad mood affected your own. Water signs need to be careful about who they surround themselves with because they’re so much more likely to take on the moods of those around them than other signs. Working in a hostile or depressing environment will feel nearly impossible to sustain for a sensitive Water sign.

Let’s take a look at each Water sign, how they relate to the world around them, and what career path might bring them the most joy and happiness.

Cancer: The Natural Nurturer

Cancers are aware of the lasting impressions that feelings make, and they know that how you make someone feel is often the number one thing that they remember about you. You’re a compassionate, caring individual who wants to make sure everyone around you is as comfortable as possible – and your passion for taking care of others is palpable.

Caring for and being nurturing towards others are not only actions that come naturally to you, but they are also actions that bring you a sense of fulfillment and peace. You are at your most comfortable when you’re practicing empathy for the world around you.

You see, Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the astrological planet that rules over our feelings, emotions, and sense of empathy and compassion.

Cancers also prefer to retreat into their shell when they feel uncomfortable or stressed out. When you’re having a bad day, you want to escape into your comfortable, cozy home and block the rest of the world out. You’ll have to work on putting yourself out there if you want your talents and skills to be acknowledged by others.

Your greatest asset in any field or career path is your ability to make those around you feel comfortable and at-ease.

You bring a certain sense of peace and tranquility to the workplace simply by sharing your comforting, soothing nature. You are in tune with the energies surrounding you and easily pick up on others’ moods, making it easier for you to read the room than most people.

The only downside is that you need to watch your own moods, which can have their own swings from time to time – especially if you’re spending time near someone else who feels grouchy or grumpy.

You must pick up cleansing habits that will allow you to let go of any emotions or energy you pick up from those around you, like meditation, crystal healing, and chakra work.

Scorpio: The Curious Cat

Scorpios are known for being mysterious, but they also love to get to the bottom of a good mystery themselves. Scorpios are curious and intense, and they love to probe. You won’t settle for surface answers or superficial conversations. You want to know the ins and outs of any situation that intrigues you.

As a Scorpio, you want to know what makes the people around you tick, what they deeply believe in, and why. This may be due to your ruling planet, Pluto, a planet of transformation and depth. Pluto encourages you to follow the mysteries that excite you and put your inquisitive, curious mind to work.

Pluto also contributes to your ambitious nature.

While Water signs aren’t known as career-oriented go-getters, Scorpio is a sign that knows what it wants and knows how to go after it. And your confident, self-assured nature is primed to take you far in your chosen field. However, you must avoid becoming arrogant – which can easily be mistaken for confidence.

Scorpios have an uncanny ability to keep their cool under pressure.

You can maintain a calm exterior even when your insides are fuming with heat and anger. This is an advantage in any career field, as stress and upsets are bound to happen no matter what position you’re in. This trait also helps you keep your energy to yourself, adding to your personality’s mysterious qualities. No one will be able to guess what’s going on inside your head or your heart.

Your determination, ambition, curiosity, and steady exterior come together to form an individual that knows how to get things done in the most efficient, beneficial manner – which your employers and colleagues will certainly thank you for.

And, to top it all off, your personality is charming and magnetic, encouraging people to want to confide in you or bring certain projects your way. Your sincerity and honest nature will help you instill a sense of trustworthiness in others. And your ability to get to the bottom of any mystery makes you uniquely qualified for certain career paths.

Anything that allows you to indulge in your naturally inquisitive nature will bring you fulfillment and happiness. Private detective work, research or studying, politics, taxes, or forensic work will keep that curious mind occupied.

Pisces: The Daring Dreamer

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, signaling the end of one cycle and ushering in a new era.

Ruled by the compassionate and imaginative planet Neptune, Pisces are natural dreamers that can spend entire hours or even days with their heads in the clouds. Your imagination is vivid and intuitive, and your connection to otherworldly realms is intense.

As a Water sign, you tend to go with the flow, but you also dream big, and your creativity is top-notch. You are likely drawn to many creative or artistic activities, like dancing, painting, singing, drawing, and everything in between. You’re also a natural healer with a keen ability to help others.

Your intuitive sense may even border on psychic abilities or a sixth sense – and this ability to perceive the world around you from a mystical point of view is your secret weapon when it comes to your career. You notice things that others simply don’t, and this observation of your surroundings will help you pick up on unique and unforeseen opportunities.

Pisces do tend to worry or fret, however, so it’s important that you learn to trust your intuition and trust in the wisdom of the Universe. Don’t worry if things aren’t quite going your way yet because you have the talent and the skills to turn things around and start turning your dreams into a reality.

Amplifying your confidence and self-assurance is one of the easiest ways to help career pieces fall into place. You have the intuition, the creativity, and the passion for getting where you want to go – as long as you believe in yourself.

You will have to push yourself past your comfort zone and be willing to take risks that might send butterflies flying around your stomach. Try to trust that these butterflies are an indication of something exciting to come.

Engaging your creativity, imagination, and healing abilities will help you find your footing, Pisces. Healing work, like Reiki, or any work in the creative arts – singing, painting, dancing, running your own small business – will help you truly shine.

Where Will Your Zodiac Sign Take You?

Allowing your zodiac sign to help guide you toward the right career is easy once you begin to understand more about that sign, especially when you uncover your sign’s ruling element’s secrets and how it influences your personality style.

However, it is important to remember that your Sun sign is only one aspect of the astrological map of you. If you want to know even more about your natal chart and your ideal career path, try talking to an experienced astrologer and asking for a personalized reading! You can also look at your own free birth chart to see what your dominant sign might be.

While your career is only one facet of who you are, being in a position that brings you joy and fulfillment will help you blossom into the person you’re meant to become. If you love what you do, it will be easier than ever to attract more abundance, success, and joy into your life than ever before.
