How The Zodiac Signs Act At Work, According To Astrology

As a writer, my workplace is my home. The world still hasn't caught on to the fact that those of us who work at home are actually working.

There's an odd misperception of people who work at home; it's somehow assumed we're lazy, have tons of money in the bank to kick back on, and that whatever we're doing isn't really work — it's just some "thing" we do that can't possibly be as legit as, say, someone who enters data in an office. We just sit around in our pajamas, eating cookies on a bed, like some kind of bad graphic ad for "working at home" created in the 90s.

Work ethic is work ethic — you either have it or you don't. And those of us who work at home have it in spades. Whether you work at home, in an office, out in the field or out in space, the most important thing about any kind of successful work is discipline. Without discipline and a solid work ethic, you might as well prepare your refrigerator box for your homeless life on the streets.

But how the zodiac signs act at work differs, all depending on astrology and personality traits.

How we act in public workplaces is important as well, and varies from person to person, as well as from sign to sign. Some take their responsibilities very seriously, knowing that a paycheck is the goal, and that without it, life gets very difficult. Others slack are are uncaring. Some are interested in careers, while others maintain temporary jobs. 

But all of it revolves around work ethic and how we act at work. Here are a few examples of how the zodiac signs act while at work.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Driven to get the task done, Aries shows up on time and treats the job with respect. They are not there to merely collect a paycheck — they are there to make a difference, and they pour themselves into their job.

Whether it's as a freelancer or a salaried position, Aries gets the job done enthusiastically.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Unless the job is one where they are either the boss or the center of attention, Leo is basically a stay-at-home lazy bum. They will partner off with people who will do the work just so they don't have to.
