Coping With Chaos

Coping With Chaos
With contradictory influences always pulling us this way and that, keeping a steady work schedule isn’t easy. Most workplaces are in a state of constant change, and you need to stay on your toes to keep up. Which signs do best in tough times such as these? How can you rely on your strengths to help you cope better?

The Mutable signs -- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces -- are adaptable but highly strung. They handle sudden switches better than most, confident in their ability to bend with the breeze. But they do tend to get wound up -- especially Gemini and Virgo, so they need to take time out to realign. Then they’ll be able to handle anything that comes their way.

The Cardinal signs –- Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn -- have one particular strength: Initiative. Along with that goes high energy and resilience. If they find themselves up a cul-de-sac, they just turn around and dream up a new direction to move in. The ideas and solutions just tumble out. If this doesn’t work, then that will. They provide the inspiration that proves to be the way through.

The Fixed signs -- Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius -- are less keen on all-systems-change situations. You can’t have everyone running around in circles! You need a steady anchor in the middle and the Fixed signs do this naturally. When there is panic or hysteria around, they hold still, knowing that it will all eventually settle down. Then they can get on with doing what they were doing.

The Fire signs –- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius -- thrive on adventure and adrenalin rushes, so they don’t mind a walk on the wild side. Indeed, they get bored and impatient if life is too consistent. They just need to curb their tendency to leap before they look.

The Earth signs -- Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn -- will look for the practical solution, knock any fanciful schemes to the ground, and do everything in their power to ensure that there is a solid end result.

The Air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – will stand back, review the chaos and come to a detached view of what is needed. They are thinkers and communicators, so they’ll have good ideas and keep everyone engaged.

The Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces -- really don’t like storms and much prefer times of calm. They all-too-easily pick up on everyone else’s anxieties, which makes them doubly jittery. On the other hand, they have acute antennae so they can often suss out a problem before it arises. Their barometer-like tendencies can come in very handy.
