Your Ideal Job: Understanding the Elements

One of the easiest ways to narrow down your ideal job is to take a look at your element.

There are four elements in astrology, each element representing three signs. In fact, if you take a look at the closest people in your life, there is a good chance that they share a ruling element with you.

For instance, Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – tend to vibrate on the same level, enjoying communication and the sharing of ideas. Air signs are quick-witted, intelligent, and sometimes neurotic. And while this may not apply to every Air sign you’ve ever met, it tends to ring true.

Let’s take a look at each element and explore the ideal careers for you, based on your ruling element.

Fire: Aries, Leo & Sagittarius

Fire rules over Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Fire is an element that denotes creativity and passion, and these signs are often people who enjoy their time in the spotlight (Fire signs like attention). A Fire sign is most at home in a career or job where they can express themselves and be acknowledged for their hard work and creativity. It’s also helpful if they can have a bit of fun on the job.

Naturally social and warm, you should be able to get along with most of your colleagues, regardless of your career. You will thrive, however, in a creative environment that allows you to come up with new and inspiring ideas.

You are goal-oriented, and you make a great leader – so, leadership positions will help you feel more aligned with your nature. The biggest challenge you’ll have in any position is maintaining a calm demeanor, as you can have a short temper from time to time.

If you begin each day with balancing practices, like yoga and meditation, you’ll find it easier to maintain your composure throughout the day.

Earth: Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the signs ruled by the responsible element, Earth.

Earth signs have a steady pace that allows them to work toward their goals with patience and determination. They are hard-working and practical, desiring routine and stability. Most Earth signs have a knack for making money, as they seem to naturally know what it takes to attract abundance and maintain it by saving and spending frugally.

Your down-to-earth nature is something that employers respect, and your tenacity will help you work from any position towards a role with more responsibility and higher pay.

Those you work with appreciate your analytical, reasonable approach to challenges or problems within the workplace. Your downfall may be a slight addiction to work. In fact, you’re probably what many would call a workaholic. As long as you can find a balance between work and play, you’ll be quite successful.

Water: Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces

Water is the element that rules over Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

These signs are naturally intuitive, emotionally sensitive, and creative. You tend to follow your heart rather than your head, especially when it comes to important matters. You connect to your intuition and do what feels right at the moment, rather than spending hours or days mulling over a certain decision. Your keen intuition is an asset for any career or company, and you should try to use this to your advantage.

One of the easiest ways for you to thrive in any working environment is by working on building your psychic shield.

It’s easy for you to absorb the moods and negativity of others, increasing your need for protection. Beginning each workday with chakra work and visual meditation will help you build a shield around your aura that will keep you safe from external toxins or negativity. If you learn to protect and stand up for yourself, you can be successful in nearly any field.

Air: Gemini, Libra & Aquarius

Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the signs ruled by the element, Air.

These signs are highly intelligent, with the gears of their minds in constant motion. They are known for their cognitive abilities and thinking skills, making them great problem solvers in any career field. Leave it to an Air sign to come up with a creative solution to nearly any challenging situation in the office!

Air signs’ minds tend to wander, however, and it may be difficult for you to stay focused on one task at a time.

It’s important that you find a job that stimulates you mentally so that you remain engaged and interested in your career. This also makes it a great idea for you to follow your own path and entrepreneurial endeavors, as you can create your own goals and schedules.

Whatever you do in your career, try to make sure it is something that tickles your brain and makes you feel intellectually involved.

Following Your Bliss

Even if you feel stuck in your current position, remind yourself that it’s not forever, and begin building the foundation for manifesting your ultimate career path. Write down exactly what you want, how much you want to make, and what you want to do for work. Be as specific as possible and start to draw this position to you.

While you may feel uninspired right now, you can always begin structuring your dream job today. Close your eyes, let the inspiration flow, and begin to follow your bliss!
