The Zodiac at the Office

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

the office for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

It is difficult to imagine you being glued to a desk, in a given place; your office reflects your desire for action. In other words, the room is often simple, and you are satisfied with the basics: a computer, which must be fast – otherwise you would get mad – a good lamp, and if possible, an open view so as to enjoy the light. You are not an order maniac: you jot down your ideas on post-its, and your mobile phone lands anywhere it can. Luckily, you have a clear mind, and you do not let paperwork pile up. Similarly, you focus so much on the essential that your environment remains sober and neutral. You are fond of streamlined furniture, not too cosy in order not to drowse, and you brighten it up with a few accessories, preferably red.

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

the office for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

The main furniture could be a mahogany executive desk like that of a minister, or a British-style desk, or luxurious and hand-made. It does not matter if it takes up a lot of the space, because you need to feel comfortable and to spread yourself out. You are sensual, and you enjoy caressing the grain of the wood or feeling the softness of the leather when you tilt back on your beautiful armchair. It must be underlined that you are hard-working and endowed with a good practical mind: therefore, to those who scoff at your habits, you answer that you have every reason to equip nicely the place in which you spend long hours. An irrefutable logic! Your preferences go towards the warm hues of wood, and bottle-green or pure white, if your tastes are less traditional. However, you remain classic!

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

the office for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Here is the place where you get the thousand ideas which pop up into your mind! And this is obvious: your ideal office is a modern room, well-lit, with white walls on which you hang everything useful, notes, drawings, plans, and photos. You appreciate the style of Karat, the modular furniture, dashes of fluorescent colours, as well as separations of unusual spaces, or poufs scattered around a coffee table to receive your guests casually. It is important to put them at their ease, to offer them a coffee or a cold drink, and to adjust your style according to their personalities. In your personal area, there is often a pile of newspapers and magazines. Whenever you can, you work with the music on, with or without a headset, because you are able to deal with several things at the same time!

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

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

It is easy to spot your office owing to the little personal things you leave in it. A cushion for your lower back, a box of dragées, or a selection of teas. You often have a light sweater close at hand… or green plants. Since you tend to accumulate souvenirs or documentation "just in case", you may find it difficult not to get lost in the middle of all your treasure. You are a sentimentalist, a dreamer, and you cherish your habits. However, this is how you need to function in order to deliver the best results, and there is nothing you can do about it! Even though you love your work, your family remains the priority in your life, and this is obvious through the numerous photos of your loved ones, placed near your computer.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

the office for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

People do not ask you how you manage, but you always end up getting the most beautiful office! It is large and prestigious, in a very good location, and overlooking the city or the countryside, like that of a manor’s owner. As for furniture, if you are willing to live your fantasy to the full, you ought to opt for a precious wood Louis XV desk in marquetry with a bronze top. You can come across such wonders in antique shops. Then, you will only need to throw a silk Oriental carpet under it. Or you can turn to modern furniture, but only the cream of the crop. In any case, the tabletop, as well as the armchairs, must be impressive. Without lapsing into clichés, you like to display on the wall a distinction you received or a photo showing you in a positive light.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

the office for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

You are the champion of organisation! You amaze your colleagues by showing the tricks you use to prioritise your tasks: whether piles of documents sorted according to precise criteria, or their digitalised version, an archivist lies dormant in you! You are also very good at gadgets. The mushroom vacuum cleaner which swallows crumbs, and the ergonomic mouse to avoid tendinitis are meant for you. In addition, the commissary is your realm. People naturally turn to you to rationalise the provision of their supplies. Finally, it is needless to precise that your office is surgically clean. You are a hygiene and tidiness maniac, and you are adamant that your working space is perfectly well maintained. No to the acarid-ridden carpet, but yes to the LED lamp which enables you to concentrate on your mission earnestly and comfortably.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

the office for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

One guesses quite rapidly that this place, touched by Venus’ wand, is your office. Often white and as beautiful as mother-of-pearl, it reflects a serene approach of the work life. You choose pieces of furniture distorted from their original purpose: a designer chair for your briefcase, your branded bag, or a visitor’s bottom. On the desk, there is an ancient vase used as a pencil pot, everything being carefully selected. You enjoy finding paper or pencils, mauve or dark blue. You scatter art photos or even statuettes on a shelf above your desk. It may not seem serious, administratively speaking. Besides, it is not your forte, but one may sense your inspiration, your taste for aesthetics as well as your sociability. Because it is not unusual to see photos of you in good company!

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

the office for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

You are mysterious, and you do not accept that just anyone may walk in on you. Therefore, your office is often located in a secluded or even hidden area, to which you add a few unusual details. Since you like provocations, you are glad when the people you admit feel a bit appalled by the shocking photos which you display overtly. All your choices have a meaning or a message, because you are not afraid to show the reality of the world which is dear to you, even violent. You also opt for a radical stance, which could be of two types: either your desk is overloaded with books and confidential files, like at Poudlard, or it is completely empty. Colours, too, are radical: often dark, running the gamut of grey and black, matt or shiny. Finally, you need to work alone, for your concentration, but also in order to build the subtle strategies which are your speciality.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

the office for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Inspiring and cheerful, this is what your work space looks like. It is open and bright, and it offers a unique view, because you need a beautiful panorama. You have nothing against an open space environment, for you have nothing to hide, and you are a very affable colleague. Moreover, with your natural authority, you have not yet found anything better than sharing a nice drink in order to encourage your team members. However, as far as the aesthetic of the place is concerned, you are satisfied with the simplest decoration. Firstly, because you have other tasks to attend to, and secondly, because you are not glued to your chair every day. One may notice many clues to your nomadic temperament, such as a bicycle helmet, spare shoes, or a suitcase. Needless to say that there are items reminding the trips you are fond of: curios, postcards, computer wallpapers, which provide your daily dose of escapade.

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

the office for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Your office is a serious topic! Above all, it must be functional and not only a pleasant place. You are mainly interested in the power of the computer and the ergonomics of the telephone set. Your files, numerous because you are a hard worker, are stacked in order of priority, and as soon as they have been dealt with, they are carefully stored. Besides, archives are a source of fascination and inspiration. If you decorate the walls with photos or images, they will probably be representations of the city in former times, of your ancestors, or of the founders of the company. You need neutral and soothing colours to stimulate your concentration. The furniture ought to be as streamlined as possible, so as to give your mission top priority. In any case, you have very clear ideas of what you must do. Those who dare to enter your room without informing you take big risks.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

the office for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

You do not work like people, and this is noticeable in your office. Oh, what an ugly word! You do everything to distort it from its function of origin. For instance, you do not hesitate to install it in your garden, in a small modest detached house. Or you want it to be itinerant: as a responsible geek, sometimes you need only a powerful laptop and a Smartphone to be fully equipped. It is probably a representative of your sign who imagined the cyber-cafés where it is commonplace to mix private and professional matters. You know perfectly well where to find wifi connections, and you get there using a public bicycle, a scooter, or a pair of roller skates. But like in the Silicon Valley, your apparent casualness does not prevent you from harnessing the power of your brain. Seated in front of a Caffè Latte, you invent a new art of working, super mobile.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

the office for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

"I am going to the aquarium". Once in a while, you enjoy making this joke, because it refers to an old fantasy, and you are often overwhelmed with... work! Inside you, your whim and your imagination flow without restraint. It is out of the question to work in an austere environment, and therefore, you exclude dull-coloured walls and functional furniture. You prefer the shades of blue which evoke getaways and your element. You also need a very comfortable armchair for your buttocks. Besides, you may fall for an extra sofa, just in order to take rejuvenating breaks. Since you are endowed with musical of spatial intelligence, you like to have a good old flip chart or a video equipment – easy to operate, for you are not too technology-oriented – in order to test your ideas. Sometimes, your colleagues find you absorbed in your personal bubble, in front of a screen but with a headset on your ears.
