Sounds strange, but it’s true. Your place on the astrological birth chart could affect your working life.
Qualifications and experience are perhaps most likely to influence a person’s job prospects and working life. But it seems their star sign may have an impact too.
An infographic published by British job site reed.co.uk, shows the results of a survey of more than one million jobseekers. It examined birth dates, but also compared these with other information such as earning power and company loyalty. And there were some fascinating results.
Capricorns are most likely to be able to earn the best salary, with males raking in an average of £23,927 a year and females taking home an average of £20,644. Also coming in as higher earners were Taureans (males £23,900, females £20,611), Scorpios (males £23,892, females £20,621), Arians (males £23,900, females £20,601) and Virgos (males £23,855, females £20,649). Unfortunately for Sagittarians, they were found to be at the bottom of the earnings scale, with males and females born under this star sign earning an average of £23,676 and £20,542 respectively.
Aquarians (males £23,868, females £20,562), Leos (males £23,700, females £20,574), Cancerians (males £23,849, females £20,485) and Geminis (£23,817, females £20,533) were also relatively low earners compared to their peers born under different signs.

Pisceans were found to be most loyal to their employers, as they stayed in jobs for an average of 28.9 months before moving on. Whilst Pisceans demonstrated the most loyalty, female Scorpios were the quickest to head to pastures new, staying in jobs for an average of only 25.8 months.
Now…who’s off to ask for a raise?
