We all wish to be the best. Whether it be superhero, ace attorney, baseball star, or to join the CORPS, we all have a dream-self of what we want to be in the future. What we are good at and what we strive to be can be discovered and used to its fullest potential in the dream-job of your life. Of course, something as abstract as your astrological sign should not discourage you in anyway as to what you want to be, or sway your opinion.
Since Aries is a very outgoing and chance-taker kind of personality, the job best suited for one would be something that takes great big brass kahonies. From skyscraper window-washer to a cave-explorer, an Aries has no problem with doing the extremes, but never give them something that is boring.

Gemini absolutely can not have a job that doesn’t stimulate critical thinking. They need it if they’re going to want to do something even if it’s sitting behind a desk. At least make them a hacker.
