Have you ever wondered How to deal with your boss according to their astrological sign? Even the most amiable bosses have their quirks, but the key to dealing with them is understanding how they think. Hazel Dixon-Cooper’s book “Work on a Rotten Day” provides fun, effective advice for dealing with coworkers and supervisors according to their personalities and astrological sign. Unfortunately, my profile was so accurate that I no longer wish to share my astrological sign with you in this article!
If you want to get ahead in the workplace or keep your sanity, then all you have to do is find out your boss’s birthday and refer to this article.
Astrological Sign Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Buckle up—this goal-oriented boss expects you to work as hard as they do because Capricorns want to earn the respect of people. This micromanaging may irritate you, but they want to promote you and help you learn how to do your job well.

Try not to take it personally if your boss gets a bit moody or antisocial—this is just their periodic pessimism showing through and can be counteracted by your willingness to help your boss tackle obstacles.
Astrological Sign Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Your Aquarian boss will appreciate your ideas, but try not to voice disagreement—this boss doesn’t find it easy to consider alternative ways of viewing things. Also, do not complain about coworkers to this boss because Aquarians respect equality and lack bias. In addition, be open to a very flexible schedule.
Astrological Sign Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
A Pisces boss can have a kind-hearted nature if they know that you will be there to listen. They like to feel supported to talk through issues. Be sure to highlight your organizational skills, proving your indispensability.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
This boss will not treat you like a buddy. While quick-tempered and controlling, Aries can build up your self-esteem over time and increase your performance. Make sure you do not show any public displays of emotion to this boss and impress them by offering to do detailed work (e.g., research). Even if you do make mistakes, Aries will likely give you a second chance.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
The Taurus boss will expect things done their way without dispute. Appear stable and reliable during work hours. Although this fixed sign despises change, your boss will love it if you can find a way to bring in more money. But never ask for something more than once—their opinion will be clear the first time.
Astrological Sign Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Geminis can multitask with ease, always moving forward to the next task as quickly as possible. As the saying in Lawrence, Kansas goes, “if you don’t like the weather, then wait ten minutes.” Due to frequent mood changes, you must be ready to drop what you are doing at a moment’s notice if this boss asks. Earn their respect by offering useful information and staying on top of business trends that can help your workplace.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
This individual can be extremely annoying during their time of crabbiness but pleasant to be around at other times. Cancers have a nurturing nature so that no employee will be overlooked. Come across as incredibly patient to your boss and always offer your help. This sign tends to micromanage employees—when your boss hovers, do your tasks the way your boss would do them.
Astrological Sign Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
Never lie to a loyal Leo, as you will not likely regain their respect. Known as a high-maintenance boss, Leos will show you every emotion they feel and expect your best performance once they understand your capabilities. In addition, note that Leos think that everything their coworkers do is an extension of them. Therefore, never insult or disrespect a Leo in front of other people.
Astrological Sign Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Virgos are the greatest of all micromanagers, but they want to help. Regardless of how your boss behaves, it would help if you always were on a strict schedule—their biggest pet peeve is those who do not make good use of their time. Even if you feel like your Virgo boss is nagging you to death, it is nothing compared to the pressure Virgos put upon themselves.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Count yourself lucky to have fair-minded, sincere Libra as a boss. Libras tend to weigh every option before acting upon a decision—they value input, so be yourself and be honest (even if you think they may make a wrong decision). The only problem with the one who weighs all options is the lack of an opinion on internal issues.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
Scorpios desire power in the workplace, so they want to feel in control at all times (even if they are not in the room). Scorpios can also see right through any phony people in your office, which can be a pleasant relief. Be sure to act as if you assume your boss knows everything you know, so the Scorpio will not assume that you are after their job. Scorpio paranoia can be a problem, so be sure to keep any secrets your boss shares.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
Sagittarian bosses do not crave recognition as many other signs do—instead, they’re excited by ideas and grand plans. However, these grand ideas can get the best of this person, leading them to take on more than they can handle.
If your boss gets sidetracked, be sure to prepare any necessary documents needed before your boss forgets to ask you for them. On the other hand, this scatterbrained boss can be a lifelong friend even if you change jobs, so have patience and be flexible.
