Your Approach to Work

Your Approach to Work
Every astrological sign and element has a different approach to work. If you can hit your stride in the right job, then you’ll fly!

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are go-getters. Their immediate response is to dash into action, usually with inspiration, though sometimes lacking in practicality.

Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) are practical, always looking to the end result.

Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) are thinkers. They stand back, analyze and then communicate well. 

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) react first by feeling, so they are tuned in to colleagues’ and the public mood, but can be hypersensitive.

Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) have initiative and are bubbling over with new ideas, which they push ambitiously. If something doesn’t work, they toss it aside and are happy to start with a new project. Their boredom threshold is low.

Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) may be slow to get going but once on track, they’ll keep trucking forever. They may lack in initiative, hate too much change but they do have endurance.

Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) are adaptable, happy to bend in the prevailing breeze and fit in. They can be too scattered and need focus, but they are the glue that holds the office to together.

Aries
You are a great salesperson with the courage of your convictions, and will leap into new schemes with great bravado. Even if you fail, you are never down for long. You have an amazing resilience, a rubber ball quality that bounces you back up and into the next project. Great at starting, you often run out of enthusiasm before projects are finished, so you need to always be in a job that allows you to move on quickly.

Taurus
Excellent in the real world of solid objects, you are good at being the central pillar of whatever organization you work in. You like to see solid progress from what you do both in terms of money and achievement. A job that demands constant variety is not your style. Often you let others start new projects that you then take over and see through to completion. You much prefer a routine that you can see stretching ahead.

Gemini
The original multitasker, you thrive when doing six different jobs at the same time. You adore continually juggling options and spreading your talents in different directions. Your butterfly approach, here, there and back again, suits certain ambitions but not all. You are much better putting your energy into short-term projects that are likely to show fast results.

Cancer
You combine flair, vision and inspiration with a capacity for dreaming up new projects and setting them on their way. Not an idle dreamer, you make things happen and try to keep everyone happy at the same time. You can be prickly or moody, which can puzzle workmates; let them know when you’re having on off day. Since you sense undercurrents better than most, you love working with the public.

Leo
Your creative talents are strong and bring you recognition if you pursue them. You are imaginative rather than realistic, and usually need a more grounded partner to look after the basic details. With the ability to inspire loyalty, confidence and enthusiasm, you do well in management though you need constant pats on the back to keep you happy.

Virgo
Good with detail and highly conscientious, you always like to see an end product to anything you do. You thrive on variety and can be flexible as long as your working situation is not too stressful, since your highly-strung nervous system can go into overload. You’re not well-suited designed for sales jobs or public relations, since you dislike hypocrisy and are not always good at preventing your truth-telling side to come out.

Libra
Your people skills are the most evident, since you are diplomatic and sensitive to what others want. At times indecisive, your ability to weigh tricky situations in the balance until you reach a sensible conclusion can be extremely useful. You will not be rushed. An easy underling since you like fitting into corporate structures, you can also make a good boss.

Scorpio
Persistent and hugely resourceful, you can rise to challenges and tricky occasions with a good deal of courage. You operate well out of sight or in the background, since it is power you seek, not glory. You handle highly confidential or secret information better than most, especially in the financial area. Best in a job that stays the same over time, you dislike having to change frequently.

Sagittarius
A good communicator, you approach your work with enthusiasm and great ideas. Though like most adaptable signs, you can all too easily be blown around by other people's agenda. You need to inject adventure into your workplace if it isn’t there, so you can be seen as a troublemaker at times. Not always practical, you usually let others attend to the details while you concentrate on the broad picture.

Capricorn
You will do whatever it takes to get to where you want to be. With your managerial skills and dynamic determination, you usually fulfill your ambitions no matter how long it takes. You can start from a lowly position and are good at taking orders, since you appreciate the need for discipline. But, you always have your eye on the eventual goal.

Aquarius
You think fast and communicate well. You have people skills but, being a strong individualist, you are not wonderfully good at taking orders. You are a team player as long as you have your own space where you are allowed to work unsupervised. Not always terribly practical, you do have a sharp mind, a way of assembling huge amounts of information quickly and putting it across clearly.

Pisces
You are adaptable, good at being of service and being understated rather than ruthlessly determined. Anything that allows you to get away from dreary practical routines is what brings out the best in you. You have an intuitive understanding of other people's problems, and want to help. you can get overloaded and always need a space in which you can retreat and re-center yourself.
