It’s very common for your zodiac sign to have trouble committing to just one job, and it’s possible that you have many freelance or side-gigs on top of your main source of income. But even this flexible and dynamic lifestyle isn’t immune to putting in your resignation. While a dreadful experience for some, you can rely on your social skills to navigate this circumstance.

Your modesty will help you stay grounded.
