Welcome! I am Jo Tracey, and I am so excited to be blogging here. I am based in Sydney, Australia and keep a steady level of chaos juggling fulltime work as a Business/Change Manager (for a Global IT company) with domestic divadom, astrology and blogging -- in no particular order.
"Business Manager" is a loose term and one that encompasses change management, project management, facilities (I am the Queen of Relocations) and a bit of risk and pre-sales activities thrown in. But as a triple 1st house Pisces, with Sagittarius 10th house, I don't do boundaries, definition and structure at all well- so it actually all works for me. But it took me a long time to understand that.
And that, is essentially what this blog is all about. Astrology in the workplace is more than having the daily horoscope pegged up at the coffee shop. In the current economic climate, it isn't as easy as it once was to resign from one job and have another waiting in the wings. Crude financial reality is such that we can't all wait around for the Universe to deliver the perfect job. Astrology can help you understand your reactions, motivations and those of your colleagues and management. It helps you identify your own personal breaking points and may help you to accept and make the most of what appears to be a bad situation.
We are at work, in some cases, for up to 75 percent of our waking hours. Our colleagues see more of us than our families, so knowing how they tick and what excites them can not only make those hours easier to bear, but will help you maximize your effectiveness -- you may even enjoy yourself!
In "Your Career and the Cosmos", we will explore subjects pertinent to day to day life in the workplace- things like change management, negotiation and leadership styles, power and fear and the right job for you. Many of us have relationships in the office- some good, some secret, some obsessive and some just plain annoying, so relationship astrology definitely has a place here as well, but from a different slant than what you are used to.
If you have feedback, ideas or concepts you would like me to explore and write about, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
