Astrology for Career
Life is too short to spend toiling at a job that pays the bills but doesn`t feed your spirit. Astrology can show how each star sign best expresses itself in work and career. There are two basic qualities to consider when looking at your sign: element (fire, earth, air or water) and mode (cardinal, fixed or mutable).
Most people are aware of the elements but less familiar with the modes. Your sign is a unique combination of element and mode which can help you discover what kind of work suits you best.
Fire signs are confident and enthusiastic, they enjoy competition and freedom. Earth signs are careful, grounded and realistic, they like solidity, facts and stability. Air signs are playful and good communicators, they like ideas and intellectual stimulation. Water signs are cautious, sensitive and caring, they dislike anything too boisterous or feeling hemmed in.
Cardinal signs are go-getting, always moving forward, outgoing and active. Fixed signs are solid, dependable, resistant to change and enjoy going in depth into things. Mutable signs are changeable, easily bored, adaptable and love making connections between things.
