Every star sign has a set of key characteristics with which they are most associated.
Though not a scientific approach to choosing a career, understanding the traits of your star sign and how they transfer to a working environment can be an interesting way to start your job search.
If you are a Gemini, a career horoscope might help you better understand which roles are likely to suit your personality. Spending some time thinking about what you are like in the workplace (what excites you and bores you, whether you work best in a team or alone, etc.) can help you find a position that motivates you and keeps you stimulated.
If you were born between May 21st – June 20th, read on for your Gemini career horoscope.
Geminis are perhaps the most sociable of all the star signs. They are adaptable and enjoy flexibility and variety – too much of the same will make them feel trapped and liable to bolt.
These individuals have bags of energy, vivid imaginations and are often very creative. It could be argued that this energy makes them impatient and impulsive; they need constant stimulation to prevent them from losing interest.
If a Gemini is interested in something and it excites them, they will probably complete the task twice as quickly as anyone else doing the same thing. If they’re not, they will procrastinate.
Geminis don’t cope well with repetition or lack of flexibility; having to do the same mundane tasks over and over again is a big no-no when it comes to finding a suitable career path. The job of factory worker, for example, would be far too predictable and rigid for this star sign.
Given their sociable nature and aversion to pen-pushing roles, careers that involve sitting still behind a desk with little interaction from other people won’t suit Geminis. They need to be socially stimulated and experience plenty of variety in their work – in a perfect world, every day would be different from the last.
Their enthusiasm for variety means they are always willing to try new things, which can make them excellent team players. This drive for variety does, however, mean that this sign is prone to changing jobs frequently to keep themselves motivated.
Geminis don’t like being tied down. At work, a Gemini performs best when the goals are flexible, there are plenty of different options and there is room for new ideas. Whilst this could be seen as negative when it comes to careers like solicitor or doctor where there is little room for creativity and interpretation of the rules, Geminis can excel when working on projects that demand flexibility and artistic flair.
As a tour guide, no two days are the same – perfect for the itchy-footed Gemini. Every day, tour guides meet new people and interact with them, passing on their knowledge; Geminis enjoy being in the know and educating other individuals.
This star sign is often inquisitive, so working as a tour guide having access to areas with no public access – and being the first to find out confidential details – will satisfy their thirst for information.
Geminis often gravitate to scholarly roles; they enjoy being mentors. The changing of classes every year is an attractive prospect to the Gemini, offering variety in the workplace. Children by their very nature are unpredictable, so every day will present a new challenge.
Different abilities among students mean there will be a variety of goals to work towards – something which is likely to appeal to this star sign. Despite curriculums being fixed, how you teach that curriculum is open to interpretation, giving Geminis the flexibility to be creative.
Mercury is the ruling planet for Gemini and is associated with data and communication. Geminis are always the first to hear about the next big thing and are great at connecting with people. These qualities make them excellent journalists.
Their love of communication means Geminis will enjoy talking to a range of different types of people and will have the skills to build trust and get the story.
The role of journalist offers the fast-paced, ever-changing working environment the Gemini craves. The prospect of having to run in and out of the office following leads and getting content prepared for publishing is attractive to this star sign.
It’s a translator’s job to talk, and Geminis love to talk. Geminis are clever, articulate and charming, and their approach to facilitating a relationship when there is a language barrier will mean clients warm to them quickly.
Translators often travel and aren’t tied to a fixed location – an immediate plus for this sign. This career offers the chance to regularly meet new people; the varied nature of the job is well suited to the Gemini whose specialty is spontaneity.
A role in events means working with varied clients, different venues and, perhaps, even in different countries.
Geminis won’t feel tied down because they know that each event has an end-point and they will soon get a completely new brief to get their teeth into.
Teamwork is crucial to successful event management and Geminis are great team players. This role provides opportunities to come up with new ideas and be creative. It also offers a very busy environment and the need to think quickly if something goes wrong during an event – all music to a Gemini’s ears.
Geminis are friendly, thoughtful, outgoing and kind – great qualities for a nurse. Excellent communication skills mean their bedside manner is likely to make patients warm to them instantly.
Geminis need to be kept busy and they like to multi-task. A bustling hospital or care home with an ever-changing list of jobs offers a great working environment for this star sign.
These individuals are good with their hands and tend to do well in science and medicine, so studying throughout their careers should be enjoyable for Geminis.
Many Geminis are well suited to owning their own business. They have the freedom to take their company in the direction they choose, play about with ideas and share their knowledge with staff.
A hairdresser or make-up artist is a role that could appeal to this star sign; the job offers variety, it’s sociable and it’s creative.
Hairdressing offers a Gemini the space they need to exert their energy and be expressive. Using their hands and moving around the client as they sit in the chair is an attractive prospect. If you are visiting a hairdresser with this star sign you are probably in for an entertaining, exciting experience – life is never boring when a Gemini is around.
An in-house accountant working on a single company’s accounts would probably be too mundane for a Gemini, but working for an accountancy firm and managing a diverse range of clients is far more appealing.
Geminis are methodical and smart – two essential qualities for this role. A Gemini with a head for numbers is likely to excel, given the star sign’s ability to deal with lots of different information at the same time.
The importance of this role to a company is attractive to a Gemini and they will enjoy being trusted and relied upon.
A career as a consultant could give Gemini the flexibility they need when it comes to employment. By honing their skills in one area, they could move around different departments or companies, making recommendations or educating staff on a particular topic.
The role of consultant ticks several boxes for this star sign. Geminis have the opportunity to share their knowledge and be the authority on a subject – they are out and about rather than sitting behind a desk, and the role is often short-term, so they won’t feel trapped.
Geminis like to know what’s going on and the role of project manager ensures they will be at the forefront of the action and kept regularly updated. Typically, project management involves liaising with different teams and working on multiple projects at any one time.
This varied workload means a Gemini is unlikely to get bored.
An effective project manager has the tact and personality to be able to smooth over issues with suppliers and the like. The personable Gemini will build strong relationships across their company and beyond, making them successful in getting the job done on time and under budget.
While career horoscopes are not a scientific way to begin your job search, if you’re a Gemini, you may well have identified with some of the character traits mentioned. The career matches listed in this article could be food for thought and help you think about what you want from a job.
Identifying your character traits and personality can be extremely useful when it comes to choosing a career path to follow; the better you know yourself – what you like and don’t like, what bores you, what excites you – the more likely you are to find a job that ticks all the boxes.
