Consulting your career horoscope might give you some much-needed inspiration. As a Pisces, you might be interested in some career ideas chosen to fit with your characteristics, as defined by your star sign.
If you were born between February 19th and March 20th and are considering your future career, this Pisces career horoscope might give you some fresh ideas.
Emotionally intelligent and positive, Pisceans are usually well liked and valued members of any group. Their easy-going manner and ability to read the emotions of others means that they make great friends and loyal romantic partners.
Pisceans are usually artistic and creative and don’t like to be constrained by someone else’s vision. A stuffy office environment with mundane work is the Piscean’s worst nightmare.
They can sometimes suffer from addictive tendencies and get entirely absorbed in their latest passion.
A Piscean can be compassionate, nurturing and intuitive – perfect for successful personal relationships. But how does this translate to the workplace?
It can be hard to make a Pisces concentrate on the task at hand, especially if they don’t find it particularly interesting. A tendency to be distracted and to enjoy a bit of daydreaming can result in frustration for the manager of a Piscean.
However, if tasked with a project they feel truly passionate about, with the creative freedom to run with their ideas, a Pisces can really shine in the workplace.
One of the standout qualities of a Pisces is artistic talent. This can present as acting ability, vocal talent or skill as a painter, sculptor or writer. Drawing upon these qualities to guide career choices is likely to make a Pisces happy.
The obsessive tendencies that some Pisceans possess can be used to focus entirely on capturing a scene in the best possible way. As photographers work in different locations and with different subjects, the work can be as varied as needed to hold the interest of a Pisces.
Photography can take a Piscean around the world, indulging another of their passions – travel. This career allows the freedom to follow artistic desire and interests while earning a living along the way.
Continuing with the creative theme is a career in music. This can entail a wide variety of roles that can be selected depending on a Pisces’ general personality. Songwriting may hold particular appeal, providing the opportunity to communicate intense feelings in a creative and expressive way.
A Pisces who is a skilled singer or musician would benefit from the direction and guidance of a manager, as they may be lacking the organizational skills and motivation required to make it in the music industry.
Pisceans tend to have great interpersonal skills and the ability to empathize with others. This makes them ideal for a role in the caring professions. Their compassion and desire to help others mean that they have a pleasant bedside manner and find it easy to connect with their patients.
Pisceans often respond appropriately and quickly to a changing situation, so they are more likely to spot medical changes in their patients that may need attention.
As well as providing excellent, compassionate care to their patients, a Pisces will be a supportive and easy-going colleague, even in a high-pressure environment such as healthcare.
A Pisces working in healthcare can use their empathy to their advantage, but they must also be careful not to over-empathize, as they might find that they take on other people’s worries as their own.
Working in the charity sector affords Pisceans the opportunity to use their gifts of empathy and compassion for a good cause.
If they feel their efforts will benefit those in need, a Pisces will show great commitment and passion for their job. Finding the right role within a charitable organization is crucial. Menial work or mundane tasks will not be suited to the flighty and creative approach of a typical Pisces.
Many roles in a non-profit organization can be low-paid, but a Pisces will get their motivation from doing work that benefits others and may be happy to forfeit a high salary for job satisfaction.
The excellent communication skills and empathy necessary to succeed as a counselor are some of the strongest traits of a Pisces. This makes them the perfect people to quickly build a rapport with their clients.
Although they can struggle to be motivated themselves, many Pisceans are good at motivating others – especially relevant when they are supporting their clients.
A Piscean counselor must be sure to have adequate professional support and chances to debrief, as they may struggle with the emotional aspects of the job.
A typical Pisces should have the ability to connect with a customer easily, showing real interest and enthusiasm for providing the best service. They will gain pleasure from knowing they have truly helped a customer find what they need.
A Piscean salesperson may find themselves at the top of the leaderboard when it comes to closing sales, having made use of their natural persuasive qualities, rather than having to rely on the hard-selling techniques that some of their colleagues adopt.
Drawing upon the creativity that comes naturally to a Pisces, a career as an artist is an obvious choice. Many Pisceans are very skilled in creating artwork through drawing, painting or sculpting.
Artists are often deep thinkers and draw upon feelings and emotions to inspire their artwork. This suits a Pisces who likes to communicate on a deeper level.
With a propensity for indecisiveness, Pisceans who make a living from creating artwork can move between multiple projects, devoting time to whichever holds their interest at that moment.
Bartending is a career that can be full of fun, where being a sociable and easy-going Pisces is a huge positive. Pisceans will thrive at meeting new people and using creativity to think up new cocktails and drink concepts.
Working unsociable hours in a bar allows for plenty of time in the day to pursue other passions, allowing an impulsive and restless Pisces to explore various projects. The two fish that appear in the Pisces symbol are thought to represent the pull in opposite directions that a Pisces can feel when torn between different options or interests.
Another Pisces career idea that draws upon a natural ability to empathize and care for people is in the social work sector.
Social workers need excellent communication skills and a truly caring nature to perform their job well, and Pisceans have both these qualities in spades.
Aligned with their desire to help people and make a difference to those in need, social work may be relatively low-paid, but it’s an ideal job for a Pisces.
Pisceans are highly intuitive and emotionally aware, which means they can read people very well. Good recruiters will need to understand multiple requirements and match suitable candidates to roles; this is where helpful and people-orientated Pisces will shine.
Every day is different in recruitment, so Pisces will be able to use their creativity to find solutions to their clients' needs without getting bored.
Of course, there are many different personality and aptitude tests out there to help guide you through making a career decision, and many of these are well respected and used widely in recruitment. But sometimes, taking a step back and using a fresh approach can also be beneficial.
Using a horoscope for guidance may not be a scientifically proven way of approaching an important decision like this, but it could throw up an exciting possibility you’ve not yet thought of. Keep an open mind and be receptive to new ideas.
Consulting this Pisces career horoscope might have given you the chance to consider your personality type and traits on a deeper level, which can help you choose a career path you are well suited to.
