If you happened to live in Hawkins, IN, you would need a job - so where would you work? Rather than pounding the pavement with your resume or taking a day to walk up and down the Starcourt Mall asking for applications, you can find out where you’d work based solely on your zodiac sign.
Astrology can reveal our innermost desires, our preferences, and what kind of people we most get along with. Not only can astrology tell you which character from Stranger Things you’re most like, but it can tell you where you’d work if you found yourself in the weirdest town in Indiana in the mid-1980s.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Hawkins Sheriff’s Department
Aries never hesitate to charge headfirst into a problem, be it investigating a young girl shoplifting from the grocery store or finding a missing child who was last seen biking near Mirkwood.
This sign needs to work in a highly competitive, dynamic environment, so a job at the Hawkin’s Sheriff’s Department would be a prime fit. Not only is there plenty of police work in Hawkins, but the people who work at the sheriff’s department get along like they’re in a buddy cop movie - exactly the type of community an Aries needs.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Hawkins Lab
Even though Hawkins Lab is technically closed, when it was at the top of its operating abilities, it was probably crawling with Tauruses (not to mention a Demogorgon). This sign is grounded and wants the best of everything, be it a state-of-the-art laboratory or a portal to another dimension.
Tauruses don’t just sit back and enjoy their accomplishments - they work hard for what they have. In Stranger Things Seasons 1 and 2, the lab workers rarely seemed to leave the building. They were a hard-working crew with serious Taurus energy.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Hawkins Middle School
Gentle and curious with a personality that’s always in flux, Geminis are built to work at a middle school - especially a middle school full of 13-year-olds who are dealing with some serious inter-dimensional problems.
To work at a place like Hawkins Middle School - whether as a teacher, a coach, or a member of the janitorial staff - you have to be a friend, an AV club steward, and a winter dance chaperone for your young charges. The only sign that can handle that much change and responsibility is undoubtedly a Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): The Palace Arcade
Cancers always know how to get in touch with their emotions and those of the people around them. Rather than working at the grocery store or the pool, Cancers belongs where they can openly bond with people - especially those who let down their guards when they lose all of their allowance on Dig Dug.
A Cancer’s emotional sensitivity will give them the patience and empathy needed to deal with a youth who’s failed repeatedly to save the princess in Dragon’s Lair.
