As a blue-collar entrepreneur with just a high school degree myself, one thing I’ve come to understand is that success comes in many shapes and sizes. Fortunately, many of them still do not require a college degree! The important thing is to identify what you really want and find out what it’ll take to get there.

So, just for fun, I wanted to run with Natalia’s theme a little bit and brainstorm the perfect blue-collar careers based on your zodiac signs. Take a read and let me know – does yours speak to you? 

♈ Aries

Personal Trainer  or Firefighter

Typically bold, engaged, and fired up, Aries like physical challenges and can excel in a high-energy job. Becoming a personal trainer is a great option (and the free gym-membership helps) and a career as a firefighter might also make for a good fit.

♉ Taurus

Bartender, Chef, Restaurant Owner, or Wedding Planner

Steadfast and strong-willed enough to deal with unpredictable situations, a Taurus might be a great fit for customer service. Love food or wine? This could be an especially attractive career. 

♊ Gemini

Hairstylist or Cosmetologist

Talkative, extroverted, great at connecting with people and helping them feel good about themselves, Gemini make for good beauty industry employees. If you’re a fan of beauty guru / MUA Youtube, it may be time to start experimenting. 

♋ Cancer

Veterinary Assistant

Working with animals is a good fit for your caring side, but working any job remote or in 1-on-1 settings can fit your desire to be a homebody. 

♌ Leo

Actor or Salesperson

You love the spotlight, work hard and have no fear when it comes to pursuing your dreams. Those are the necessary skills for becoming a great actor (or salesperson). Already the star of drama club? This could be the path for you. 

♍ Virgo

Elevator Installer and Repairer or Florist

Your Type-A, perfectionist side makes you a natural fit for exacting positions. Get machines working just-so or flowers arranged precisely and you could build a nice career for yourself.

♎ Libra

Influencer, Blogger, or Wardrobe Consultant

You’re a great communicator and have a knack for inspiring and influencing others. Plus you’ve got an eye for trends. Working as an influencer, blogger, or wardrobe consultant might be right up your alley. 

♏ Scorpio

Graphic Design Artist…. Or Politician 

You’re intense, creative, and have so much to share. Why not make art? Graphic design, makeup, fashion – work in the business of self-expression and you could live a happy life. Or… give local government a spin and see where it takes you. 

♑ Capricorn

Welder or Landscape Designer

You work hard and have an intense eye for detail. If you work your way up in the trades you could build your own business. 

♐ Sagittarius

Flight Attendant or Travel Agent

You have serious wanderlust – so fly away! Flight attendants get to see the world and provide priceless customer experiences – a natural fit.

♒ Aquarius

Postal Worker or Comedian

People might tell you that you’re a little kooky or offbeat. Well, postal workers and comedians get to connect and get insight into the private lives of others, which will activate your air sign sensibilities. 

♓ Pisces

Medical Assistant or Life Coach

You’re a softy who loves helping and connecting with others. Working directly with patients gives you daily human connection and provides a nice outlet for compassion. 

You know what else doesn’t require a degree? Becoming a writer. I hope to stay in touch as my book Blue Collar Cool progresses. It will have excellent advice on finding a career that fits your passion, financial planning, and goal-setting. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
