What Makes Him Not Want To Work, By Zodiac Sign

Work productivity has a lot to do with time management and avoiding distractions. Something that is more important at home can make a person think about their personal life when they should be completing an assigned task that they are being paid to do.

However, there are other reasons why a person can lose interest in work, particularly for a man. Many things could distract him based on his personality. Although some people are more prone to getting distracted easily, almost all of us can fall prey to this.

But based on our astrology, the object that interrupts our concentration on something can differ from person to person.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

This man is constantly looking for new challenges. So naturally, even the subtle indication of an exciting new challenge could definitely distract him from work.

It can be anything starting from an innovative project, an idea, even a new person (hopefully, it’s not a new romantic interest!) that could prove to be distracting to him. Like the other cardinal signs, he likes to take the lead and so would leave his work to pursue whatever it is that has piqued his interest. And like the other fire signs, he could be very intense.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

It’s hard to distract this man, especially when he is at work. But he does value his comfort above all. And so when that is threatened, he could be distracted.

Suppose he forgot to pack his, which by the way is quite impossible, then the hunger pangs would definitely make him leave his work in order to satiate his more immediate needs. Similarly, change is a big NO for this man. So if someone for some reason has tinkered in his work space and moved stuff around, he is likely to get distracted and possibly annoyed.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

This guy is easily distracted. And it’s mostly his mind that is the greatest source of distraction for him.

There are just so many different narratives running in his head that they easily divert him from his work. If he is working at an office setting, he might get distracted by other people and what they have to say. He is sucker for gossip and witty banter. So there’s that.

In general, even you could be a source of distraction if you’re constantly sending him texts. He has a way of not being able to fully concentrate on one thing, thanks to his mutable nature.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is the first water sign in the zodiac wheel. And emotional turmoil could really get to this guy. If his emotional life is in disarray, he could find it difficult to concentrate at work. Random thoughts concerning the cause of that issue would distract him.

Also, being a cardinal sign, he strives to be a leader in his own ways. So if someone at work is trying to outdo him or needlessly get in his way, he might get distracted from his work.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

This is one of the most creative men of the zodiac. So if he is not already in a creative field, other creative outlets might distract him.

For instance, many dream of being on the big screen or even in the theatre. So an opportunity to be on either might be distracting for this man.

But for the guy who is already exercising his creativity, the adulation of others might sometimes be distracting since it is one of the greatest motivations for him. Also, romance and the thought of his romantic interest can be very distracting for this king of romance! So if you are lucky to be his object of affection, know that his thoughts of you are distracting him from his work!

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

This is the sign of productivity and efficiency. He usually loves his work and is rarely distracted. But he also has a nervous mind, which combined with his mercurial nature, can distract him from work.

For instance, he might be so worried about his future plans that thoughts of it can divert his attention. Also, he is a classic worrier. So if something happened in the last week that has worrisome to him, you can bet that he is still brooding over it at work!

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Social situations mean everything to him. So the social life at work is a cause of worry and distraction for this man.

Suppose a coworker does not particularly like him and he knows it. This would definitely keep him from fully focusing on his work, especially if he has to *gasp* interact with that coworker!

Also, his personal relationships can be distracting for better or worse: He might be distracted if things are going great with you, cause then he is dreaming of all the things he would like to do with you. He might be equally distracted if you two have not been getting along lately. The latter scenario is obviously more distressing to this peace-loving man.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

This guy is all about power and intensity. He cannot stand being outdone by someone else. His need for control is legendary. So if someone at work has got the upperhand, he might be distracted. He just can’t get over it and will brood over it endlessly.

Likewise, if he is having relationship troubles, he will be distracted at work, as well. This happens because deep down he craves a total merging with his partner and the indication that the other person has a mind of their own can be a little frightening to him. In general, lack of control can divert his mind from work and this certainly includes a new romantic interest whose mind he has not been able to unravel.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Being the fire, mutable sign, this guy has lots of energy and interests. In fact, all things from religion, philosophy, politics and poetry have the ability to  pique his interest. That is why at work, the latest development on the political front could lead him to engage in a heated debate with his colleagues. Similarly, he might be unsure about his religious beliefs, which could distract him from his tasks.

He is also in love with adventures and the idea of new horizons to explore. An opportunity that allows him to explore the unfamiliar could be immensely distracting for this man.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

This man is known to be a workaholic, who cares about nothing but success in his chosen field. That is why his main source of distraction is the next big thing.

The idea of a new project that he is dying to start working on can divert his attention from what he is currently working on! He just needs to be in a better place tomorrow than he is in today. That’s the key to his success and he is happily distracted due to this reason.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He is a deep thinker and problem solver, first and foremost. So any new issue at work or even at home could divert his attention from actually doing his job. Most likely, however, the source of his distraction does not immediately concern him.

For instance, being the classic humanitarian that he is, he might be agitated about any injustice done to the human race. Even the thought of cruelty done to animals can boil his blood. These things can occupy his mind and distract him from work.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

This guy is easily overwhelmed by his surroundings. The fact that Pisces is a mutable sign does not help. He is very attuned to other people’s thoughts and feelings, positive and negative. So his coworkers’ drama can affect his focus on work.

Also, he is constantly daydreaming and that is definitely a source of distraction for him. Mostly it is dreams of his current romantic interest that distracts him from his work. So if you are that person, rest assured thoughts of you are keeping him diverted!
