It's not always the smartest choice.

5 Zodiac Signs Who Mix Business And Pleasure getty

Many people caution against mixing business and pleasure, and yet it still happens all the time. The people who do it may or may not be aware of the danger, but they still have their reasons. Maybe it makes things fun and exciting, or perhaps they welcome the thrill of getting caught.

But who are the zodiac signs who mix business and pleasure, and why?

The problem with mixing business and pleasure is that it can make you less productive and less professional. It can affect your performance at work and get you a bad reputation.


If things don't work out between the two people, it can make working together in the future awkward and uncomfortable — not only for them but for the people around them. It can also create negative office politics that remain in place long after the relationship has been terminated.

If you start seeing a co-worker even though it’s been expressly forbidden by your office, you may feel like a rebel. But somewhere down the line, it’s going to come back to haunt you.

1. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


Geminis are very social people and tend to have jobs they like with people they enjoy working with. Sometimes the lines can get blurred and they may find themselves in a non-work relationship with a co-worker.

It's not usually intentional, as Gemini doesn't set out to get emotionally involved with someone they work with. When Gemini finds someone who understands them and who they can relate to on an intellectual and emotional level, it's hard for them to put on the brakes.

2. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are passionate and impulsive, and sometimes they don't care about the consequences of their actions as much as they should. They may want immediate gratification and decide not to overthink things. The problem is that by not taking the time to consider the consequences, they may cross boundaries.


Mixing business and pleasure can make Aries easily distracted and their job performance may suffer. If they start to feel too comfortable with someone higher up, it can result in Aries saying something inappropriate or losing their temper.

3. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

It's easy for Libra to get emotionally involved, even when they're getting involved with someone they do business with. Having a professional relationship with someone can make doing business more pleasurable, but what Libra doesn't get is that too much friendliness can lead to judgment and distrust.


Mixing business and pleasure may seem great at first, but it can have lasting negative consequences that Libra may not be able to recover from. It's easy for misunderstandings to happen and for innocent actions to be misinterpreted.

4. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus individuals have a lot of discipline... except when they don't. It's hard for them to deny themselves anything. They can't help it if people are attracted to them. Taurus knows how to flirt, they just don't always know when to pump the brakes on a situation.

Sometimes, mixing business and pleasure seems like the civilized thing to do. Why wouldn't you have a few cocktails when you're wining and dining a client? The problem is that Taurus may not know when to stop, and suddenly they're saying and doing things considered unprofessional.

5. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

In Aquarius' mind, they can handle mixing business and pleasure. They're not going to allow themselves to get too emotionally invested, and they're self-aware enough to know when and where to stop.


The truth is they can be over-confident. If someone gets jealous of Aquarius, that's their problem. This zodiac sign is going to do what they want, and no one can stop them. Aquarians change all the time, and what they thought was okay the week before may not be okay now.
