The Zodiac and the Sense of Organization

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 entertainment, 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.

Aries' organization

Organization for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Undoubtedly, your sense of organization is very spontaneous. First, you do not like to work methodically on your projects, because you rather tend to get ahead of yourself.

The very prospect of making a pause and of pondering seems to you a waste of time. Therefore, you address the first problem arising, although it means that you will see afterwards if you have rushed headlong, caused a few damages or missed your target.

In other words, you trust your legs more than your brain, and action compensates for lack of planning. On the other hand, you manage to swing into action at short notice so as to be extremely efficient.

Suggestion for Aries

On the contrary, take the time to organize your priorities into a hierarchy. This will spare you many blunders or losses or energy.

Some Aries Examples

The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant.

Taurus' organization

Organization for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

You possess a strong capacity for work, the main issue being above all to move off. Therefore, it is easy for you to ponder over – even to brood over, as ill-wishers would say – your mission before taking the plunge.

With a dash of distrust, you prefer to consider the situation from every angle before you decide on the best strategy. In addition, you have an innate sense of concrete things and of planning.

Once you have started, you are a formidable machine. You deal with issues thoroughly, with determination, and you remain on track.

Suggestion for Taurus

Be slightly more flexible, and accept to think outside the box once in a while. Perhaps there is a less traditional way to be well-organized, although you are organized, definitely.

Gemini's organization

Organization for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Quite intellectual, although you are a big channel-hopper, you have a lot of common sense. You often follow your intuition, or you begin with what you enjoy most.

It is also necessary to underline that your organizational skills are hampered by a couple of flaws, namely thoughtlessness or a propensity to be scatterbrained. In addition, since administrative chores are boring, you tend to underestimate them and to behave without a care in the world.

However, this may backfire on you, precisely because you have not thought of everything. As a result, there is a risk that you have difficulty completing your assignment.

Suggestion for Gemini

To improve your daily organization, use all the fashionable tools or gadgets available: applications, reminders, diaries, etc.

Cancer's organization

Organization for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

As you are well aware, you are often a victim of prejudice, because the members of your entourage know that you are sometimes in the clouds. This is actually the case in the literal sense since the Moon, your ruling planet, is involved.

She disregards organization and follows her emotions, with calm and hesitations. This is why a priori nobody expects you to be a skilled specialist in this area.

Nonetheless, you are compelled to get down to it every now and then. You must accept to go against your temperament, for your own sake. Your problem is not that you lack patience, since you are able to anticipate. However, you must take action some day.

Suggestion for Cancer

Since there is a lot of room for improvement, do not hesitate to ask for help. Seek advice, and spend time gathering information when a project is important to you.

Although your creativity is deservedly praised, the fact that you are quite a good organizer must not be overlooked. You are able to subdue your fiery nature mainly because you are focusing on the fulfillment of your ambition.

To this end, you rely on tried and tested principles. Since you are obviously smart, you sometimes expect unskilled people or kind friends and relatives to take care of the petty works that you believe to be beneath you.

For example, to fill an Excel sheet, to inventory the tools needed, or to gather information are tedious preparations.

Suggestion for Leo

Do not forget to thank your troops, and do not commit the sin of pride to believe that you are above certain contingencies.

Emotions are not taken into account. To get prepared, you make the most of your resources. You are clear-headed, and you know on which assets you can rely.

Moreover, you develop a very intelligent strategy in order to progress and to compensate for you weaknesses. Since you are modest, you start from the premise that there are no givens and that you need to make every effort.

Suggestion for Virgo

Do not change anything at all.

It is to the extent that, even from afar, some people may believe that you are untidy and that your desk is like a battlefield.

Having said this, your mental and analytical abilities are terrific. It is as if you had a tremendously powerful software in place of brain, which enables you to settle any issue and to anticipate with maximum efficiency.

Organization for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Since there is always a mountain you want to climb, then new summits, again and again, your ambition forces you to get organized in some way.

In addition, you possess a considerable asset that people do not have. Indeed, you see very far ahead. Moreover, time is on your side, for Saturn, the ruler of your sign, is its symbol. Anyway, you take your time.

You prefer to be sure that you have digested every knowledge and considered everything before taking the next step. At the same time modest and conquering, you want the base to be solid enough to support your projects or your career.

Organization is definitely not your strong point. Indeed, you cannot conform to a unique and tested way to reach a goal.

As soon as something is done, you cannot help it, you must go off the beaten tracks. You prefer, by far, to experiment. This sometimes leads you to do silly things.

Under the influence of Uranus, the ruler of your sign, you show excessive eccentricity sometimes. But, God knows how, you manage to achieve a good outcome, doing things backwards or starting with the end, because you are so inventive.

Keep your madness under control a little bit, and above all, keep your feet on the ground.

How could one be interested in establishing lists, in reading directions for use, or in getting ready in a way you deem martial? No, decidedly, you are not fond of organization. It constitutes a tiresome constraint, the extreme opposite of your temperament.

You prefer a thousand times to rely on your intuition or to leave to other people the methodical tasks that you find downright uninspiring.

Suggestion for Pisces

At least, make a small effort, only that which is strictly necessary in order to avoid being overwhelmed.
