Hard to Keep Your Cool at Work?

Hard to Keep Your Cool at Work?
The moment the words escape your mouth, you know you shouldn't have said them. Now the boss is giving you a steely glare and your colleagues may never forgive you. Sometimes you just have to bite your tongue in the workplace -- which certain Sun signs find easier to do than others.

Sagittarius has the reputation as being the zodiac's worst blurter. They don't have a malicious bone in their bodies, and they certainly don't mean any harm. But once their devastating comments rear up, they instantly realize from startled glances that they've done it again. They need thick-skinned colleagues who'll simply let such infractions bounce off them.

Aquarius can also be brutally outspoken at times, a condition made worse by their airy detachment. They stand back, review a situation and proceed to tell the direct, honest truth as they see it, no matter what the consequences. In short, they need to learn to mellow out.

Scorpio also has a stinging reputation for saying precisely what people don't want to hear, and they're usually more harsh if they've been hurt or criticized. They always feel compelled to get their own back -- even if it's to their long-term disadvantage. Instead, they should rely more on their ability to keep secrets.

Virgo has been known to be critical, and since Scorpio rules their work communications, they will at times go too far and become self-righteous. It's true that they're often correct, but they need to learn that bluntly saying so won't win them any prizes or friends. Luckily, they do tend to worry about others' feelings, so if they're not too irked, they'll pull back in time.

Taurus likes to appear placid, and they usually manage to swallow their comments. But when they blow, the lid comes off the volcano and they really don't care how it sounds ... at least not until later.

Aries and Gemini can each be outspoken to their own detriment. But since neither sign rarely carries a grudge, nobody holds it against them for long -- except the very sensitive-spirited.

Libra is known for being diplomatic and tactful, although Libra men typically have a softer touch than Libra women, who can possess startling, shoot-from-the-hip tendencies. But given their lofty ambitions, these women are usually smart enough to curb their comments when it really matters.

Capricorn keeps an eye on the promotion ladder, so they tend to tailor their remarks -- even when irritated, depending who's on the receiving end. If it's the boss, they'll bend to their knee submissively; a lowly colleague, however, might not be so lucky!

Pisces hates confrontations of any kind, preferring to look the other way when agitated. They may plant a few seditious comments in sideways when the chance arises, but otherwise, they'll shut off and simply try to bliss out.

Cancer can be sharp when they get hurt, but they're more likely to retreat into their shell rather than blast right back. At the same time, they're not good at forgiving and forgetting, and they tend to hold grudges to the point where it will inevitably leak out.

Finally, Leo can be slightly petty when it comes to getting a dig in. But ultimately, they find it beneath their dignity to indulge in verbal brawls, instead preferring to look superior by ignoring the situation ... or waiting until the affronting person goes away.
