Aries’ Career Mantra: “I’ve got this.”
Aries’ greatest career strength: Leadership. Everyone naturally looks to Aries, and being responsible for others comes naturally.
Aries’ greatest career challenge: Delegating. Learning how to trust the team is key for Aries.
Career is the area of life where Aries is apt to shine the brightest. Ambitious, creative, and often driven by the need to be the best they can be, the Ram is at their best in the workplace. Born leaders, Aries are far more comfortable taking charge than taking orders. They thrive as a manager and will often find their colleagues coming to them for advice.
Some signs struggle with change, but Aries initiates it. Getting a project underway is what gets them up in the morning, but tying up loose ends, checking off punch lists, or maintaining the status quo? No, thanks.
Aries’ striving, competitive nature can lead to friction at work, so it’s important for the Ram to remember they they're part of a team. In fact, the sign benefits greatly from working with others. And while it’s true that they don’t need the help of others to kick-start a project, Aries' greatest power comes from their chemistry with co-workers, who in return benefit from their infectious energy.
Investment banker: Managing money pays off for Aries. Their analytical mind is good with numbers, and their thrill-seeking side allows them to try potentially risky moves that (usually) end up paying off.
Surgeon, doctor, or nurse: Aries’ nerves of steel pay off big-time when it comes to life or death matters. Although Aries are warm to patients, they’re pros at sidelining their emotions when it counts. They don’t get attached, which can help them succeed in a career that could otherwise be emotionally draining.
Entrepreneur: Aries’ confidence can help them manifest big ideas, but they may need help bringing those ideas to fruition. Because Aries is all about action, they sometimes experience a dip in energy when a project stalls or there’s some red tape blocking the way. Finding a detail-oriented business partner, like Virgo, is key in making sure that the small stuff gets taken care of while Aries looks at the big picture.
Producer: Aries’ leadership abilities make them great at pulling multiple teams together to work on one project. Their ability to see the big picture can help get a major project off the ground, and their sociability means that they can charm people into backing any creative project they dream up.
PR Exec: Aries love the idea of juggling multiple projects at once, and working on a few things at a time with a revolving door of clients means that things never get old. And when they say they can get something done, they mean it.
Even though an Aries is wise to save for a rainy day, this isn't likely the case. Because Rams prize excitement, shopping, gambling, and playing the market are far more appealing to them. They aren't too focused on their financial future. In fact, living for the moment is the true Aries philosophy. Money is rarely scarce because they love working, but it can be spent almost as quickly as it comes in. The one thing you can be absolutely sure of is that Aries will have as much fun making as much money as they possibly can!
Get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work! An Aries boss demands your all, and will be the first to call you out if you slack. And avoid excuses. If you made a mistake, own up and move on. Hearing about how your car got stuck in traffic or your Wi-Fi router broke will just make you seem weak to an Aries boss. Here’s more about what they’re like:
Energetic: The Aries boss gets to work early and leaves late. They giver their 110 percent—and expect the same from you!
Gets it done: When faced with a challenge, your Aries boss won't waste time casting blame. Focus on fixing the issue.
Broadminded: An Aries boss has varied points of interest, a million open browser tabs, and a desk full of “just for fun” books. They'll appreciate your efforts to expand your horizons as well.
A juggler: Incredibly versatile, the Aries boss can work on several projects at the same time, and they'll expect you to do the same.
Demands respect: An Aries boss is fun and generous, but as close as you might feel to them, never cross the line and disrespect them!
Aries thrive on internal satisfaction. If they’ve half-assed a job, they’ll feel guilty even if their boss says it’s OK. Aries thrive on action, so a same-old desk job may lose its appeal as soon as the newness wears off. To succeed on a personal level, an Aries must be constantly innovating and may find that having a side-hustle (such as starting their own business) is the best of both worlds—they get to fulfill their boss’s expectations while also working on something they truly believe in.
All Aries harbor an inner warrior. When Aries’ energy seems to be asleep and they're struggling to manifest their desires, it means that they aren't aligned with their inner warrior. How can an Aries awaken that warrior?
Fire gaze: Literally, look into a fire and visualize being in the place or situation where you really want to be.
Wear red: Incorporate red into your wardrobe and wear it on the days when you feel most vulnerable.
Awaken inner strength: To recognize and reawaken that strength, push through activities that require endurance and stamina. Go to the gym, take on a few projects, multi-task—whatever it takes to get in the zone.
Pocket affirmation: Write a list of your strengths, gifts and talents, and read it whenever you need a pick-me-up.
All of the above are especially powerful in a month that manifests a full moon in Aries!
