Lifestyle column: the Geeks of the Zodiac

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond Geek, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

In your view, electronic equipment has the advantage of saving time. This idea alone sounds in a magical manner to you, you who are always rushing. You are delighted by the possibility to respond to your interlocutors by e-mail straight away, and to fulfil boring formalities just typing on your keyboard. Nevertheless, make sure you reread what you write, and do not hit the "send" button too quickly. Many Aries have already regretted their haste! Ditto for tweets, a mode of communication you enjoy because it enables you to catch people off guard with your little digs and your cutting remarks. In general, your weak point, a slightly pleasant narcissism, also finds good ways to express itself on the Internet: Facebook, mainly, helps you shine amid a wide network of acquaintances. Moreover, since you are fond of progress, you readily yield to the latest gadget, the most powerful, the lightest, and the most ergonomic ones. Well, a sudden impulse!

You are also a formidable twitter, always more rapid that anyone, and you overwhelm your colleagues and your friends with news links. There is no chance that you curse the omnipresence of technology. You are clever enough to deal with everything simultaneously, doing ten things at the same time of course.

Whenever you think of technology, you cannot help it, you immediately associate it with the world of work. You probably need to know that you can constantly control your professional diary, organise conferences via a webcam, and set your appointments with Doodle (a brilliant invention to coordinate timetables). Otherwise, your favourite social network is LinkedIn, because you can keep abreast of anything related to your trade. This is where you develop your network, and without admitting it, the purpose of your posts is to achieve your ambitions. In any case, you certainly never disclose your private life on Facebook, a practice that you find almost disgusting.
