We’ve all got to make money, right? These days, everyone seems to have more than one job going on, and the side hustle is more popular than ever. Get maximum buck for your bang by following the stars’ guide to doing what you do best (naturally), and choosing a side hustle that suits your personality.
IF YOU’RE ARIES – DOG WALKING
You’re the alpha, Aries, and you know it. Controlling a pack of pooches will be like child’s play to you, and actually, you think you’d look pretty cool strutting around the park with a WHOLE PACK of hounds. You’ve got the energy to make this look easy.
IF YOU’RE TAURUS – CLINICAL TRIAL GUINEA PIG
Depending on the clinical trial, this is your dream. Once you’ve signed the forms, you might get to lie in bed all day in a secret compound where NO ONE (adios bosses) can get to you. There’s also wifi and free food, dude, while you might occasionally give blood or wee samples, or have to take a pill/injection, you also get some moola at the end of your medical holiday. We’re in.*Clinical trials are vital for us to get new meds onto the pharmacy shelf, but there are risks, so engage fully in what you’re told beforehand.
IF YOU’RE GEMINI – TUTOR
You’re a natural-born teacher, Gemmy. Learning comes naturally to you and this means you ALSO (though I bet you don’t realise this yet) have a hard-wired understanding of how to break stuff down and teach it simply and efficiently to others. You’ve got the smarts, the vocab, and the personal charisma to be many kids’ favourite teacher EVER.
IF YOU’RE CANCER – SELLING CRAFTS
You probably take your creativity for granted, Cancer, and you’ve got to develop a little more faith and confidence in your natural talents. You truly are an imaginative, creative soul and you can make beautiful things (be that art, cakes, poems, clothes, furniture or Disney headbands!). Get paid for it.
IF YOU’RE LEO – FASHION / BEAUTY VLOGGER
Looking good is your catnip. And getting paid to show others ~how good~ you look (and sharing a few tips on how you’ve achieved your personal masterpiece) sounds like a piece of cake. It is, Leo, because you’d be doing this at home in front of your dressing table mirror already. Lights, camera, action.
IF YOU’RE VIRGO – OAP COMPANION
Spending time helping someone out round the house/with their admin/listening to their stories and putting the kettle on (and therefore experiencing the heavenly sense of ‘being needed’) makes you happy. To be appreciated for being organised and doing simple, everyday tasks for someone else will not only bring in a few pennies, but a glowy sense of self-worth too. Go make someone else’s day.
IF YOU’RE LIBRA – AIRBNB
Libra, you know how to make places look good and feel great to be in, and you’re a natural aesthete (it means you have an eye for beauty)! You’re the kind of bod who enjoys scrolling through pics of other people’s homes, and knows EVERY property for sale/rental in your locale. This is an easy sideline in ‘Libra World’- get a place looking shipshape, get it online, get the people in, keep it rolling.
IF YOU’RE SCORPIO – MYSTERY SHOPPER
Mystery is actually your middle name! You’re an enigma (deliberately, because privacy is EVERYTHING). So, getting paid to masquerade anonymously AND to score/judge/critique something in the process… heck, you’d do this for FUN let alone some extra cash.
IF YOU’RE SAGITTARIUS – UBER DRIVER
No boss, no office, no 9-5 obligations – just you and the open road (and a sat nav). You’ll get to meet lots of new people, and visit new places, and get paid for the pleasure. This kind of solo ‘do as much or as little as you like’ gig is right up your alley, because you need freedom and space.
IF YOU’RE CAPRICORN – CONSULTANT
All Capricorns are pretty much born ready for business. Strategy, discipline, organisation and graft come naturally to you, so you tend to go far in the corporate world. Then, you reach a point where you realise you know more than your boss… and it’s then, my Cappy friend, it’s time to move out and start CONSULTING (i.e. telling people who are behind you on the path how to get further, faster). Easy peasy.
IF YOU’RE AQUARIUS – YOUTUBING
You’ve got a big brain and it travels far and wide, so you always have a unique angle on stuff. Aquarius, the world IS interested in what you’ve got to say and what you’ve been imagineering… so set up a channel and start sharing please! Enquiring minds unite.
IF YOU’RE PISCES – GARDENING
Pisces, you have natural green fingers! Your creative and compassionate personality makes you a wonderful tamer of natural landscapes and an enthusiastic grower of all things bright and beautiful- be that herbs, veggies, fruits or flowers. You could tame others’ back yards, or even start yo ur own kitchen garden and sell the produce at markets. And you’d love every minute of it- being peacefully at one with nature.
