Are You a Team Player?

We are living in the midst of a Uranus-square-Pluto aspect, and its influence will continue for the next two years. The upside of this astrological dynamic is that it fosters change, kicks away stale systems and revitalizes life. The downside? It doesn't necessarily make teamwork easy in the workplace. In fact, it'll bring out every employee's rebellious spirit -- even in the wimpiest underdog!

It's clear where the clash lies. The strength of Uranus is in its tolerance. After all, its main message here is, "I may not agree with you, but I still respect your opinion." Pluto, on the other hand, says the opposite: "I'm in charge and you'll do what I say!"

Some bosses may not like it, but this aspect offers a real chance for team players to forge new systems. Of course, this freedom to create comes with new responsibility: If you find the space to do your own thing, you need to not only deliver, but lend a helping hand to teammates who may struggle during this transitional period.

See how your Sun sign approaches teamwork on the job!

Aries wants to be in charge, which doesn't fit the prevailing mood. They need to think about wielding influence rather than taking control.

Taurus remains persuasive, as long as they keep their sense of humor handy and don't rock the boat too much.

Gemini finds themselves with one foot in old ways and one foot in new, unsure how to reconcile the two approaches. Teammates need to ease them along.

Cancer grits their teeth and tries to drag themselves away from old ambitions. They need to try a new tack -- and they'll be pleasantly surprised at how much encouragement they get!

Leo works extra hard, but finds that they need to employ subtle strategy to win more cooperation.

Virgo surprises themselves -- and others -- by stepping out of character and boldly into a future that demands more attention for their ideas.

Libra is less prone to fit in, and more inclined to do their own thing ... and hang with any consequences that decision may bring.

Scorpio struggles to make team relationships work, finding that their overly strong opinions don't always make for an agreeable work environment.

Sagittarius throws cares to the wind and follows their own inspiration, with one eye on the cost of being too rebellious.

Capricorn won't take no for an answer, and they're likely to become team leaders even faster than usual.

Aquarius simply wants peace in the workplace, but finds that their strength lies in being influential behind the scenes.

Pisces experiences intense encounters at work, which unsettles their sensitivities. They need to have faith and go with the flow as best they can.

The main disadvantage of a Uranus-square-Pluto aspect is that it can potentially undo systems that were once stable and secure; chaos can ensue. Compromises will likely be necessary along the way, so hang onto what works rather than try to change everything overnight!
