Your office personality according to your star sign

08 May 2014, 20:16

Abuja - Your office personality is strongly influenced by the stars.

Ever wondered why you're so awesome at your job, or why you just can't follow through with your innovative ideas? Well we have the answer for you.

The following astrological predictions were originally written by Petru Du Preez.

Aries can see through false flattery or praise – betray them and you may as well leave immediately. The Aries sense of humour is one of the things that makes them so popular.

They can laugh publicly at their own mistakes and have even been known to help out colleagues by taking their blame for things that haven't been done.

If they like their job, they will stay all night, if necessary – but forget it, if they don't!

The Taurus boss will be a sergeant-major one day and a buddy the next. Their moods can change in seconds.

This is a sign that makes life fun if you work with them, and unpredictable if you work for them. They will take you to great places and always provide a shoulder for you to cry on when the going gets tough.

Geminis have usually made their way up the career ladder more through good luck and force of personality than hard work.

For them, the socialising aspect of work is just as important as the job itself and any work linked to travel pleases their ruling planet, Mercury.

The crab's home life is more important than work. If your Cancerian boss looks serious about something, it's less likely to be about your sloppy work than about little Thando's cold.

Personal cleanliness and grooming are very important to them. These bosses give the staff security, friendship and discipline, and rarely fail to get loyalty in return, although they are hard task-masters.

The lion must always be the boss. These people strive for the best from very early on. And when working for others, they treat the business as if it were their own.

Don't forget that Leo likes surprises, whether it's a birthday cake, or finding out the staff have reached their target figures mid-week, a few days earlier than scheduled.

Clever, quick and with a sense of fair play, Virgo is the good guy in the world of business. You won't be able to pull the wool over your Virgo boss's eyes, either. Pull a sickie and the Virgo boss will be on the phone offering remedies.

Virgo has talents that go beyond the ordinary workplace. However, you don't often see Virgo at the top of the tree. Virgo's talents are often expended making other people money.

The brainwork is there, but a great deal of their success is accounted for by pure charm. They have staff eating out of their hand.

Workers of the opposite sex will nearly always have a soft spot for Libra, or even a crush. Although not brilliant with money, Libra is fair. Libra bosses will never cheat anyone. New business ideas are carefully planned before being put into operation.

Employees and bosses alike soon learn that Scorpio won't stand for any nonsense. Scorpio is a hard task-master and everyone else is expected to fit in with their ways.

Scorpions think they're the boss, whether they are or not. They also consider themselves transparent.

If they want to leave early to see to their own affairs, then they will, and they consider it perfectly justified. There's many a loyal Scorpio worker behind people achieving big successes.

In a Sagittarius CV you're likely to see not one, but many different kinds of jobs. They get bored easily and won't mind giving up a good wage to go grape-picking in Spain.

The staff of Sagittarian bosses don't know whether to love or hate them.

It's not very often that Capricorns get lucky. They make it through lots of hard work. As bosses, Capricorns don't ask anyone to do anything they wouldn't do themselves.

Many Aquarius people make it to the top in the workplace. As well as being the boss, they are also friends to those who work beneath them. They believe in treating everyone as equals, but can't stand slowness and lack of initiative.

They'd rather supply the initial idea and impetus, but then let someone else take it through to the end.

Pisces in the workplace is a poor listener who prefers to hear the sound of his or her own voice. Anyone working for such a boss needs to be mentally strong and ought not take them too seriously.

They are brilliant negotiators but are lousy as managers, always passing the buck! As employees, you'll find them daydreaming much of the time.
