Best Careers and Jobs for Cancer Men & Women
Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and it is the first water sign. In fact, Cancer is considered to be the mother of the horoscope due to the fact it is maternal in nature. That is why those who have their sun sign in Cancer (or their Moon or Rising sign) are extremely nurturing, they enjoy cooking and anything related to the home. They are also very good at managing money like their mirror sign, which is Capricorn.
However, their downside is that they can be quite emotional to the point that it is not rational and that is what tends to get this sign into trouble. Now that you know a little bit about your sign, you are now going to find out what careers are the best fit and why! So let’s find out the 7 best career choices for Cancer.
1. Real Estate Agent
This is one of the most fitting jobs for those who have their sun in Cancer because it has to do with helping their clients sell and buy homes. However, the one thing to keep in mind is that it is a commission-based job and this may not be fitting for all Cancers. However, if there is Aries or Sagittarius in the horoscope that can help fuel their marketing abilities, then this is a good choice.
2. Home Stager
This is a better job for the average Cancer than a real estate agent because you will get paid to do the job. And, you do not have to worry about losing out on commissions either. All you need to do is stage the client’s home that they are selling and turn it into a masterpiece. That is a lot easier than trying to be persuasive which a real estate agent must be in order to make a sale.
3. Professional Organizer
Again, this career goes hand in hand with home care. Many people are not organized and need help with keeping their homes in order. This is where the Cancer individual can come in and help. Especially if they have some Virgo in their horoscopes as well which will help them with the detailed aspect of this type of career.
Cancers love to collect items that hold sentimental value to them, and this is why one excellent career option for Cancer individuals is to become an antiquarian. You can even create a retail shop for antiques that would provide emotional comfort for customers, as well as for you.
You would think that this career is more fitting for a Virgo than a Cancer, but truly it is excellent for both signs. Cancers have a passion for food and cooking because it is a huge piece of how to nurture their families. And even though Cancer individuals can have a tendency to give in to sweet cravings and overindulge, they also want to make sure that they are giving their families the best foods that will provide them with the nutrition that they need to not just survive, but thrive. With that said, the Cancer individual can advise clients on the types of foods to stick to when they are looking to change their lifestyle for the better. They want to make sure that they will be properly nourished, and they can even make great recommendations for satisfying sweet cravings in healthy ways as well. This would be one of the best career choices for the Cancer individual.
You can go from a nutritionist to a baker or even a cook. However, that does not mean that the Cancerian baker would only bake unhealthy foods. They can bake anything that has health benefits whether they bake vegan or gluten-free cakes, bread, or pastries. Baking is a passion for the average Cancerian, and this is why they would make excellent bakers!
You have already learned that the average Cancerian would become excellent cooks, nutritionists, or bakers. They would also make excellent caterers by creating menus that would satisfy clients and nourish clients, and they would be passionate about this career choice as well. Food is associated with nurturing so any food-related career choice for the cancer is ideal.
If you have a Cancer sun, moon, or rising sign, and you are passionate about a career choice you have made that is not on this list, please share it with us. And also tell us why you are passionate about it and why it is a perfect job choice for a Cancerian.
