6 Zodiac Signs Who Pick Having A Career Over Starting A Family

Zodiac Signs That Choose Career Over Family, Per Astrology

Some zodiac signs are born to be successful in their career or choice and others long to be successful when it comes to being a parent or part of a family.

Can you have both? Or do you have to choose between career and marriage, or success and family in order to have balance and be happy? Some horoscopes will say it's impossible to be good at both, so they opt to focus on one.

When it comes to making any kind of life choices there’s no right or wrong answer, you make the best decisions you can with the information you have at the time. There’s nothing wrong with being ambitious and putting your career first.

And there’s nothing wrong with choosing marriage and family. The truth is we’re all wired differently. That’s the way life works. Imagine if we were all the same? Pretty boring - and a little creepy if you ask me.

Everyone makes their choices in life based on the future they envision for themselves and their priorities. The thing about life is it’s an endless string of choices. Some choices inevitably come with regret and some don’t.

And in life, some choices are obviously more difficult than others. The most difficult decisions are always the game changers. They change your life in profound and lasting ways. The thing to keep in mind is that opportunity costs, remember that from economics 101?

It’s the idea that something must be given up to achieve something else. Breaking the glass ceiling is quite an accomplishment, but it can come at a price. In the end, all you can do is choose what's best for you at the moment, tomorrow isn't promised to any of us.

Relationships are harder still, how can you possibly tell if your partner wants the same things you want, maybe astrology can lend a hand. 

When most people think of astrology and its relationship to personality traits they usually think that fire signs are successful career leaders in the zodiac. Fire signs, we assume, have an internal burn to succeed and make stuff happen.

When we take a closer look we find that’s not necessarily the case. The zodiac signs that would most likely choose career success over family are a mixture of fire, earth, and air.

If you want to know if your other half has their eyes on the corner office and not on a trip down the aisle their horoscope sign might be a good tell.

Here's what each zodiac sign would choose when faced with a decision of career vs. family, per astrology.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It’s almost expected that fire sign Aries would be determined to find success and weigh its importance more heavily than marriage. Aries sits at the head of the zodiac wheel and it’s symbolized by the Ram.

Headstrong and determined much? Aries are also highly competitive, and the only acceptable outcome in that competition is that they come in first. Aries is also known to be short tempered and moody. Marriage? Not so much.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is an earth element driven by their desire for material wealth and pleasures, Taurus tends to call upon their sense of responsibility and stability to achieve such lofty goals.

Symbolized by the bull, Taurus are stubborn, powerful and uncompromising; all great traits for a successful career, maybe not so much for a great marriage.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The fiery lion. King of the jungle, ruler of the zodiac and ruled by the sun. Need I say more? Leo’s are self-confident, natural born leaders, it seems almost impossible not to choose career over marriage. Leo’s are flamboyant and excessive. For the lion, it's go big or go home. If that's not a war cry for career success, I don't know what is.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is an earth element known as the helper of the zodiac wheel. With a strong work ethic and a penchant for organization, it logically follows that Virgos set their sights high in the ladder of success. The devil is in the details for Virgo’s, they are hard-working perfectionists, all the makings for a successful career.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is a fire element known as the archer, we can only assume that the target is a successful career. Sagittarians are extroverted and goal oriented, now there’s a winning entry for any resume. They are risk takers who dream plenty big, Sagittarians are the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians are the sign most likely to tackle the problems of the world as they fight against social injustice; it makes sense that Aquarius is an air element.

As the deep thinkers of the zodiac wheel, Aquarian’s tend to use their gifts towards humanitarian and scientific efforts. This is the sign of innovation, science, and invention. Some famous Aquarian’s scientists Charles Darwin, Galileo and Thomas Edison.
