Professions By Zodiac

“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?” — Charles Bukowski. Remember when as kids, we were asked this question repeatedly – What will you become when you grow up? Of course, we all had different answers, vivid dreams, and aspirations about what we would like to evolve as we grow up!

Then Adulthood happened! We woke up to reality – the reality of working or running a business for survival rather than pursuing our dream. Adulthood is complex. You got to work to pursue your dream, and you cannot at times follow your dream because you got to work!

For those who are actually into their dream profession – A BIG Congratulations!!! For the lesser fortunate mortals like me who feel like Elsa singing into the unknown, “I am not where I am meant to be.” – We take fleeting respites in dreaming about the profession we would choose had we not been where we are! 

And to tell you a secret, what you would rather be, is dictated far and wide by your Zodiac! Don’t believe me? Read on to find out! These are professions your Zodiac naturally inclines toward.
