Aries Career Horoscope: 15 Best Job Ideas

Fearless Aries was born to lead

Aries career paths that suit you best are ones that allow your independent sign to be in charge. Being somebody’s second in command is not your speed. That will only work as a stepping-stone to your ultimate goal (world domination, of course!). When starting out in a new career or field, Aries still need a position that offers enough excitement and control. Look for a chance to flaunt your leadership skills and rise to the top. As the warrior sign, you embrace any challenge, and champion every project you take on.

Aries career traits

Being somebody’s second in command is not your speed. That will only work as a stepping-stone to your ultimate goal (world domination, of course!), or if the position offers enough excitement and control—a chance to flaunt your leadership skills and rise to the top.

Naturally independent, you’re wired to be an entrepreneur or freelancer. As long as you choose an industry that allows you to interact with the public, you’ll be in good stead. Too much alone time is not healthy for your sign, as you tend to turn into a loner when you have nothing motivating you out of your cave. That said, you absolutely need a quiet sanctuary to retreat to as you map out your brilliant visions—and probably stay up for three days straight getting it all typed into pages and spreadsheets. Be sure to carve a space for yourself to reset.

Once you ARE out in the world, it’s all lights, camera, action. Your larger-than-life personality is enough to carry a brand to success like Aries feminist icon Gloria Steinem who founded Ms. magazine on her courageous, spunky, and heroic reputation.

You’re also a spotlight stealer, and could rake in the big bucks as a social media influencer who is paid to promote a product you wholeheartedly believe in—or to give your unflinching reviews. The stage may call some Rams, so step into the spotlight like a Vegas headliner, a la Aries divas Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and Lady Gaga.

Aries career mistakes or pitfalls to avoid

Taking on more than you can handle

Aries is the solo sign, and if you’re not careful you could end up doing everything yourself! (Just so it gets done right, you’ll say.) If the office closes at 6PM, there’s no need to stay until midnight. Learn the art of delegating. You can also hand off the granular work to a persistent Taurus or a detail-oriented Scorpio, who will get it done in half the time.

All that independent energy could also make you a bit bossy at times. Be careful not to cross the line from determined to dictator! If you work with a team, make sure they’re as motivated as you are. Give them plenty of encouragement and appreciation to keep the good vibes flowing. Your praise, more than any other sign’s, can put rocket fuel in a slacking teammate’s or employee’s tank while making sure you keep some for yourself.


You’re quick to anger and lunge into a full-on stampede. As a result, you may frequently say things in anger that you later regret, alienating valuable colleagues. Better to temper the flames and pick your battles, rather than destroying everything by your refusal to compromise. The art of compromise is something you’ll want to learn and make a career-long habit. Compromise doesn’t mean always getting your way, and that can be challenging for your sign to learn, but once you do, you can be an unstoppable force.
