Now, if you are a logical thinker (which obviously you are if you’ve ended up on this mysterious blog), then you know zodiac signs are self-fulling prophecies. No one should ever take them too seriously, but sometimes it is a little fun to see how yours measure up to reality. What behaviors do you and your zodiac sign have in common? Which signs get along and which don’t? Is your job outlook affected by your zodiac sign?
None of these questions can be definitively answered just by looking at your zodiac sign. But, wouldn’t it be fun to look at what your zodiac sign says about different physician specialties? Here’s our take on what your sign says about the career you’ve chosen.
What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Physician Specialties

Negative: Stubborn, Unemotional, Unpredictable, Rebellious
For all of the Aquarius zodiac signs out there, you are visionaries. You are some of the most approachable people which make you perfect in a hospital setting.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Positive: Imaginative, Accepting, Compassionate, Adaptable
Negative: Hypersensitive, Escapist, Indecisive, Lazy
Pisces is a zodiac sign that encapsulates qualities from all 12 signs. This is partly what makes you sensitive and indecisive. You make most of your decisions based on gut feelings and take other people’s well being into account before making a final call. Your indecisiveness and imagination work well together, helping you be an uber planner. This will help you manage your patients. When the work week gets overwhelming, take a step back. Your adaptability will allow you to take on all your tasks.
Your Specialty: Private practice/primary care, Infectious Disease Specialist, Emergency Room Physician
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Positive: Courageous, Independent, Confident, Optimistic
Negative: Moody, Short-Tempered, Selfish, Impulsive
Oh, Aries. The most straightforward and independent thinker of the group. Your strong will and confidence make you perfect in developing new strategies and treatments for patients. Because you already know what works and what doesn’t, your short temper and impulsiveness can make you very expectant of others. Be cautious of how you speak to co-workers and make sure your optimism shows through when talking to patients.
Your Specialty: Orthopedic Surgeon, Emergency Room Specialist, Trauma Physician, Research
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Positive: Loyal, Dependable, Patient, Persistent
Negative: Inflexible, Stubborn, Possessive, Materialistic
This specific zodiac sign is one of the more steady signs. Your ability to make decisions and follow through lets others know they can depend on you. Your patient personality helps you cope with difficult patients or co-workers. Be sure to communicate with staff, however, as your inability to make changes can cause problems with scheduling.
Your Specialty: Obstetrics, Pediatrics
Gemini ( May 22 – June 21)
Positive: Imaginative, Communicative, Lively, Witty
Negative: Restless, Nervous, Inconsistent, Impulsive, Superficial
Your great communication skills and easy going personality make you a dream to work with in a hospital setting. Similar to Pisces, your adaptability and imagination allow you to help see patients through their treatment. Known as the “twin sign,” you have the ability to see many sides of every story. Your inconsistent and impulsive side, however, make you act on opinions and fast judgment before thorough research.
Your Specialty: Psychiatrist, Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon, Anesthetics
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Positive: Loyal, Caring, Emotional, Intuitive, Responsive
Negative: Clingy, Self-Pitying, Changeable,
Cancers in the medical field are very knowledgeable about their own specialty. They aren’t, however, good under pressure or immense stress. Cancer’s emotional attachment to things makes it hard to deal with failure or setbacks. This can be detrimental when working with patients with tough illnesses. Pick a field that does not feature high-intensity situations.
Your Specialty: Private Practice, Gynecologist, Primary Care Physician
Leo (July 23 – August 21)
Positive: Ambitious, Confident, Open Minded, Kind, Intelligent
Negative: Pretentious, Bossy, Melodramatic, Vain
Much like the lion, Leos can be king of the pride (or king of your section). Your ambitious, confident nature compelled to work harder than everyone else to reach your goals. But, don’t let your ego get to you. Just because you MAY be the smartest in the room, does not mean you have to let everyone know. You can let people know you’re in charge without being too bossy.
Your Specialty: Orthopedics, Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology
Virgo (August 22 – September 23)
Positive: Observant, Precise, Reliable, Modest, Perfectionist
Negative: Skeptical, Cold, Overcritical, Conservative
Virgos are qualified to handle most tasks they are given. Your ability to listen carefully and watch before attempting a task gives you the upper hand in a lot of difficult situations. You aren’t afraid to shine when you accomplish something. But, unlike Leos, your modest personality keeps you from sounding pretentious. Be careful with coworkers, however. Although you may just be trying to help, your overcritical side can make you appear as a “know it all.”
Your Specialty: Plastic Surgeon, Nephrology, Dermatology, Endocrinology
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Positive: Diplomatic, Idealistic, Easygoing, Romantic, Hospitable
Negative: Unreliable, Jealous, Obsessive, Vain
Libras are able to handle difficult situations with grace and diplomacy. You are typically always going to side with the patient and give the ideal form of treatment. Your charming and easygoing personality allows you to make friends fast. But be weary – workplace jealousy can creep up on you if you’re not careful.
Your Specialty: Radiology, Oncology Surgeon, Dermatologist
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Positive: Passionate, Loyal, Determined, Resourceful
Negative: Suspicious, Nervous, Manipulative, Jealous
Whatever field chosen, Scorpios will LOVE it. Their passion for helping people will shine through in their medical specialty, and their patients will thank them for it. They are determined to find the best possible treatment option available and will stop at nothing to see a project through. Their nervous and suspicious personality will often make them feel questioned by others. Try relaxing and now that, yes, you are doing a good job.
Your Specialty: Orthopedic Surgeon, Geriatrics, Pediatrics
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
Positive: Independent, Honest, Straightforward, Optimistic
Negative: Unemotional, Careless, Restless, Blunt
Your determined and independent nature allows you to succeed at most tasks. Your optimism lets you begin each day anew and move forward after failure. Your honesty is refreshing but to an extent. Be cautious of how blunt you are with patients and co-workers. While you may be cutting to the chase, other’s skin may not be as thick as yours.
Your Specialty: Radiology, Pathology, Critical Care, Aesthetics
Capricorn (December 23 – January 20)
Positive: Responsible, Patience, Ambitious, Humorous
Negative: Pessimistic, Distrusting, Unimaginative
Capricorns will have the best patient-physician relationships. Their humor and patience allow them to connect with everyone around them. Their easygoing nature creates a welcoming and calm environment. An inability to trust co-workers opinion, however, can cause setbacks in the workplace. Keep an open mind and work toward being a part of a team. The world doesn’t need to rest on your shoulders.
Your Specialty: Pediatrics, Primary Care, Private Practice, Family Medicine
