Money is (still) a necessity even if some people love to use barter. And many people lack the talent to sustainably manage their finances without hitting rock bottom.

Scorpios know how to save money and how to deal with all types of people under any circumstances. Therefore working as a financial advisor is one of the best jobs for Scorpios.

What equips a Scorpio to work in the care sector is their appreciation for loyalty and trust in their relationships—in both their professional and private life.

For example, with ElderCare, CareLinx and Serco. Another career path in the care sector could be massage therapy. You could build your freelance business with Urban Massage, Soothe, Zeel or Thumbtack.

The hours invested in your education and your friendly attitude to your patients and/or clients will pay off. You would listen to them carefully and provide excellent care for your patients/clients, hopefully for a long time. As you know how to handle money well, putting some money aside monthly will go easily.

2.7. Physician

A short attention span doesn’t help a Scorpio to study for exams but they won’t let that stop them. It takes years for every medical student to acquire all the knowledge and licenses they need to practice medicine. Doing long shifts in a hospital certainly challenges both nurses and doctors. A driven and hard-working Scorpio will cope with the hardship but must collaborate with others.

In recent years, several pieces of software and apps have been developed to connect patients and doctors online. If you meet the requirements, you may join Push Doctor through which patients can book video appointments. Are you a licensed vet perhaps? Check out InstaVet!
