Your Boss by the Stars Part 1

Bosses, we love them, we hate them... but for the vast majority of us, earning money generally means that we come into contact with a “superior” at some point- and I use the term loosely. There is a great deal of difference between a “Manager” and a “Leader”. Your attitude to management of staff can be indicated by your Sun sign. More importantly, getting to know the Sun sign of your Boss can be a great help in the workplace.

If you know your Rising sign (or that of your Boss), read that description as well, as you are often influenced by both your Sun & Rising Sign.
At risk of stressing the fine print- Boss men/women past, present & future- don’t look too hard for yourselves in here- you could be disappointed...

Aries Boss
Never happier than when he is fighting fires, if there are none to extinguish, this boss is likely to create some- just because he can.

A natural leader, Aries likes to run his own show, & isn’t afraid to make difficult decisions. He is goal orientated and has so much energy that he frustrates those around him from what can sometimes be movement for its own sake. Aries loves to start new projects, but simply doesn’t have the patience to deal with the details of the effort.

Aries is the original Warrior, so this is the guy you want on your side in a fight. He has the ability to blinker himself from the real feelings of those below him- particularly if they have the potential to stop him from achieving his objective.

Taurus Boss
Taurus Boss may be accused of being a little stubborn, even conservative, but, unlike Aries, once committed to a course of action, this Manager will see it through to the end. Trust this sign with your money & your real estate. Taurus likes routine, structure and will not act without examining all possible repercussions. Any decisions made by this sign will have been carefully considered before they are communicated.

A natural workaholic, Taurus Boss does not like to be interrupted, disturbed, or removed from the agreed schedule. Taurus will lead with integrity, determination and loyalty and will expect the same from her employees.

Gemini Boss
With a Gemini boss the office will be a hive of social activity, gossip and busyness- never again will there be stony silences at performance review sessions. This Manager personifies multi-tasking, but can be endlessly distracting and possibly destructive to output if confined to a cubicle and a single goal.

A great communicator with a brilliant brain, Gemini is also a master manipulator and thrives in company politics. Gemini Boss is best in situations requiring plenty of mental gymnastics and thrives on chaos & disarray. Gemini really doesn’t like micro management, so will generally detach sufficiently to let you get into problems, before coming in to get you out of it with some genius idea.

Cancer Boss
Cancer works to earn money for the family. Uninterested in frivolity or politics in the office, Cancer is no nonsense when it comes to work and expects those around them to work equally as hard. Like all water signs, Cancer is quite private. The office generally has a comfortable home-y feel and is a refuge when they are feeling particularly “crabby” or threatened.

Cancer believes that a company is built on the engagement of its people and builds her team with firm family foundations, protecting and nurturing her “work family” in the same way that she protects & nurtures her real family- always remembering their own family always comes first. Any company that makes the mistake of not realising this will lose a great people manager.

Leo Boss
This charismatic boss works hard, plays hard, loves to be noticed and dislikes being upstaged. Generally warm, generous and proud, this Manager can also be a control freak and can tend to micro-manage staff- mainly because he does not like to be seen to fail. A motivated Leo boss has an infectious focus.

Often having larger than life ambitions, they have the ability to complete a task through sheer willpower. But if not excited, they can tend to boredom, laziness and interference for the sake of it.

Leo loves the spotlight of a high profile role or project, is not afraid to take risks, and often will manage to be surrounded with loyal followers who treat him as a role model.

Virgo Boss
Virgo truly believes that she can achieve perfection- if she works hard enough. And she does take on an amazing amount of work. As a Manager, she is often way too hard on herself and those around her. Virgo has a tendency to obsess over details, and will dwell on the smallest imperfections. But Virgo doesn’t see it as criticism- just helpful advice because she knows you can do better. This nagging tendency can tend to demoralise valuable employees who need positive reinforcement and often hides her fears regarding perceived inadequacies.

The record keeper of the zodiac, the Virgo Boss is a font of knowledge and detail regarding company facts, data and process.
