Now that we’ve made it through the first part of 2019, many of us are itching for a change. When flowers are blooming around us, we start to wonder if we’re blossoming at our full potential, too.
You might not be in love with your job–-or maybe you’re questioning if it’s even the right job for you. Is it worth sticking with it to see if you’ll advance? Or should you go back to school and completely change industries? We looked at the traits of your zodiac sign as well as some astrologers’ predictions for 2019 to see if you’re on the right path for success.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
Forward is the only direction you know how to go, so even when you feel like you’re plateauing at work, it feels like you’re moving backward. However, you might not need to dust off your resume for new job applications just yet. Combative Mars moves through your sign in the next few weeks, inspiring you to boldly speak up and fight for your convictions. Your coworkers will respect your spirit.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Normally, you love the stability of a solid routine and a steady paycheck, so for you to feel unfulfilled must mean you really need a change. If you don’t feel proud of your accomplishments at the end of each week, you need to shake things up. Try to determine if it’s your coworkers who bother you or if you don’t feel inspired by the actual work you’re doing.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
If you feel like nobody has been paying attention to your needs, just wait until May. Your ruling planet of Mercury can help others hear your voice better. In mid-May, this planet of communication resides in your sign. This is the perfect time to schedule a one-on-one with your boss to discuss how you’re feeling.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
In the past, you were likely to flit between jobs. But in 2019, Saturn, the planet of discipline, moves into your sign. For the first time in a while, you’ll have the strength to stick it out through a rough patch. You’ll learn valuable lessons during this period that can help you determine if you need a change or you’re just acting on a whim.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
You should be able to coast fairly easily this year, since the lack of planetary movement around your sign means you’ll have fewer obstacles. But if you feel emotionally sapped in your current situation, try to hold off on change until December. Abundant Jupiter moves through your sign during that time, giving you that extra boost of cosmic luck when you take a leap of chance.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Mars, Venus, the sun, and Mercury all enter your sign in August just before your birthday this year. That’s a lot of energy coming at you at once. If you let all of those influences overwhelm you, you may quit on a whim. However, if you let combine those complementary forces, you’ll feel inspired to push to the next level.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Since the planet of finances rules your sign, you’re very conscious of money. Sometimes, a job is a job, and you’re dependent on a paycheck when you can get it. However, since you’re also ruled by the planet of love, why can’t you have both? Not every day will be rainbows, but your job should give you some swell of joy. If it doesn’t, it’s time to move on.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
Perhaps you’ve always known this, but you’re definitely meant for greater accomplishments. Scorpios are game-changers, inspiring others and pushing the envelope. Can you do that in your current career? If you haven’t earned the respect you deserve by now, you should absolutely move on up.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
The Jupiter-Uranus trine happening near your birthday this year is bound to get those creative juices flowing. If your current career is worth it, you’ll be able to brainstorm new ideas to make you excited again. Yet if you find yourself more excited about opportunities outside your office, that’s your sign to move along.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Hardworking Capricorn likes to believe that with hard work comes the reward, but unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes no one notices your talent and dedication, and other times, you unintentionally fall into a good opportunity. Don’t throw in the towel just yet; even if you feel frustrated, the combination of hard work and cosmic luck will align soon.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Chaotic Uranus enters your financial sector this year, so you might feel too nervous to leave your reliable income. However, the planet’s proximity to your creative side can also bring positive energy. Let your creativity and motivation guide you to the next level.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Dreamy Pisces will also wonder if she’s in the right career. Your imagination is your strongest asset, but don’t get carried away; sometimes you need to do the grunt work in order to advance. Stick with your current situation until you have a more concrete plan to move on.
