So you got into college, your bags are packed, you've got every storage-friendly piece of dorm room furniture you can afford from Bed Bath & Beyond, and you're ready to set off for this brand new, alcohol-fueled chapter of your life. Just one thing: you haven't picked a college major. Well congratulations, you've stumbled upon the answer, given to you by the cosmos, and channeled through me, your guru.

Here's what your college major should be, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Business

Aries are born entrepreneurs. They have the competitive nature that every great businessperson needs to reach the heights of success, and they love to be first in line, to not have their opinions questioned, and to be their own boss. Get yourself a business degree, Aries.

Taurus: Finance

If there's one thing a Taurus has a mind for, it's money. They're born with a need for the finest things in life, and they desire security above anything else. They also have the stable temperament to weather the slings and arrows of a changing market, and the intuition to stay ahead of the game.

Gemini: Communication

Geminis excel in all forms of communication, whether it's tech, creative writing, or journalism. Journalism is probably one of the best majors for a Gemini because they're able to channel their natural ability to multitask, their curiosity and love of gossip, and their constant addiction to the internet into a real world money-making scheme.

Cancer: Interior Design

Cancers have a gift for nesting. They're very attached to their home, and they find solace in creating and beautifying a space for themselves and others to retreat from the outside world. They're also incredibly creative, so a job in interior design allows them to use their creativity and combine it with their desire to nurture others.

Leo: Performing Arts

Nobody loves the spotlight like a Leo. Leo is the sign associated with the fifth house, ruling over creativity, imagination, and playful activities. They're also ruled by the sun, the planet of self-expression, so if you put all those factors together you have the makings of an incredibly talented performer.

Virgo: Medicine

In medicine, details matter. Virgo people know how to work hard, to take each and every step without skipping anything, to pay attention to every detail along the way to whatever goal they set out to achieve. Not only does that give them the skills they need to get through med school, it ensures that they'll excel in the working world, where they can be of service to others.

Libra: Law

Libra is represented by the scales of justice, and they care deeply about making sure everything is fair- not just in their individual lives but in the world at large. Abiding by the rule of law is what creates balance in our justice system, and no one has a more natural gift for understanding law and seeking justice like Libra does.

Scorpio: Psychology

Every Scorpio has a gift of seeing not just what's going on in front of them, but what's going on beneath the surface of what's in front of them; identifying the discrepancies between those two things is one of their skills. They are brilliant at untangling the mysteries of an individual, perhaps because they're so mysterious themselves. Psychology is the way to turn their skill into an income.

Sagittarius: Music

Sagittarius people are born with a gift for music, it runs in their bloodstream, and if you've already chosen music as your major, congratulations. You're on the right track. Not only is this a musically-inclined sign, they love to travel, so a business which could potentially take them around the world someday would be perfectly ideal.

Capricorn: Computer Science

Look, it might not be all that creative at first glance, but the fact is that few people have the capacity to actually do things right, except for Capricorns. They know how to get things done and to make sure they're done well. So, Capricorn, take your practical ideas, translate them into codes and eventually a high AF salary.

Aquarius: Fashion Design

Aquarians are the most innovative of any sign, learning the rules of every institution so they can effectively break them. They can take the status quo and turn it upside down to get rid of anything old and outdated, and they are always pushing ahead into the future. They're creative individuals, always looking at how to serve the collective, and one industry that demands their inherent eye toward the future is fashion design.

Pisces: Religious Studies

Pisces, being the last sign in the zodiac, is ruled by the 12th house. The 12th house is a mystery, governing dreams, the spirit, and out-of-body experiences. While religion may not be what a Pisces ends up doing with their lives (they're far more creative than religious, typically) the spiritual realm will end up having a good deal of influence on whatever choice they eventually make, and will serve as inspiration for them.
