Aries: March 21st – April 19th
Don’t give up on your dreams just yet. As an Aries, you hate predictability, doing the same exact thing day after day. In 2018, you might get a bit bored of your seemingly dead-end job and consider changing career paths. But you need to get through the grunt work before you can do what you’ve been dreaming about since you were a little kid. You need to work your way up the ladder.
Taurus: April 20th – May 20th
In 2018, say yes to more things instead of letting your fear get the best of you. If your coworkers invite you out for drinks, tag along with them. If there is a Christmas party, show up with a few presents. If there is a fantasy football team, join it. It will make you feel like part of a team. Not to mention, it will help you network, which could lead to an even better job in the future.
Gemini: May 21st – June 20th
Don’t get discouraged. In 2018, you’ll be a little older and feel a little more disappointed about not working your dream job yet. Remember it is okay to feel that way. Remember most people don’t reach their dreams until a late age. You still have plenty of time, so don’t be embarrassed about your current job. Don’t feel like you are too far behind, because that attitude will only make it harder to get where you’re heading.
Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd
Stop putting other people before yourself. In 2018, you have to think selfishly. It doesn’t matter if your parents will be upset about you moving out of state to pursue your dreams. It doesn’t matter if your partner will be mad about you working extra hours to impress your boss. If you want to succeed, you have to do what is best for yourself. What would make you happy.
Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd
In 2018, you have to stop being so afraid of rejection. If you believe you deserve more money, then ask your boss for a private meeting and request a raise. If you believe you deserve a promotion, then apply for the higher position. Don’t become too comfortable staying in the same place. Always aim for more.
Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd
In 2017, you let your heart get away from you. But in 2018, stay far away from office romances. They might seem like a good idea at the time, but you probably won’t end up like Jim and Pam. You’ll probably end up feeling awkward every time you step into the building. You’ll probably end up wishing the office gossip wasn’t suddenly all about your love life.
Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd
In 2017, you played by the rules. You kept quiet and did the work you were asked to do. But in 2018, don’t be shy when you have an idea. Speaking up will impress your boss. It will show initiative. It will help you climb the career ladder even faster.
Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st
You’re the kind of person who does what they have to do. You will work a job you hate without complaining (too much) because you know you need money to eat and pay rent and survive. But in 2018, you should ask yourself whether or not you are happy. Whether or not another career path would make more sense for you. Remember it’s okay to quit. It’s okay to do something different than you earned a degree in.
Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st
There were times in 2017 when your temper got the best of you, but in 2018, be nice to everyone. Your bosses, even when they piss you off. Your coworkers, even when they’re wrong. Your secretary. Your interns. Your coffee makers. You never know who is going to help push you forward in your field — and the more people you get along with, the faster the weeks will fly by.
Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th
Stop pushing yourself so hard. In 2017, you managed to power through everything, but if you keep going at this same pace in 2018, you are going to burn out. When that happens, you won’t be able to do your best work. You’ll be too tired to reach your full potential. So slow down. Take a vacation. Take a sick day for your mental health. Give yourself the break you should have had months ago.
Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th
In 2018, don’t get lazy. It’s easy to stop caring once you’ve been working the same job for a while and get used to it, but you can’t let yourself slack. You can’t show up late. You can’t put in half your effort. You can’t give any less than your all, even if it feels like no one is paying attention. One day, your hard work will pay off. One day, you’ll be rewarded for it.
Pisces: February 19th – March 20th
You worked your ass off in 2017, which is something to be proud of. But you are a social creature, so in 2018, try to create a better balance between your career and social life. It can be hard to find times when your days off line up with your friends’ days off, but try to get together for at least a few hours per week. Try to keep your social life alive, so that you don’t feel like you only exist to work.
