How To Communicate Better Using Astrology
No matter what your job, knowing when Mercury retrograde falls will help you know when to expect miscommunication. It’s good to repeat what someone says to you to make sure you’ve understood them correctly during a Mercury retrograde. Also, take a second in the morning to see what sign the moon is in. It shifts every 2.5 days.
Knowing what sign the moon is in will help you know how people will generally be feeling that day.
People are ready to get to work under a Capricorn moon, sensitive under a Cancer moon, ready to speak directly under an Aries moon, willing to have deep conversations under a Scorpio moon, can resolve differences on a Libra moon, reorganize systems on a Virgo moon and discuss ideas during a Gemini moon.
A truly astrologically savvy person will look to the moon sign in a person’s birth chart to truly understand how to make someone feel happy in their work. The moon sign represents their emotional needs.
If someone’s emotional needs are not being met at work in the way they are communicated to, you can bet they will become discontented and work productivity will decrease due to resentment they may not even be conscious of. You would need someone’s date of birth for this.
For the ultimate understanding of how someone communicates, you can also take it one step further and look at someone’s Mercury in their chart. If it’s in Aries for instance, they will communicate bluntly but if it’s in Cancer, they will be extremely sensitive.
Know when the full moon is and be aware that it puts people on edge and messes with plans. Knowing when the new moon and full moon is each month will also help you predict the general mood of the office. A new moon is when people are feeling tired, more reclusive and imaginative.
A full moon is when they are going to be more extroverted and it’s often when hires and promotions are made because this is when things usually move forward. If you’re waiting for a deal to come through, it’s good to know this timing secret that affects people whether they know it or not.
Know How To Motivate Each Sign
If you approach projects in terms someone understands, they are more likely to be on board with it. For example, presenting a project to an Aquarius or Sagittarius, you’ll need to tell them the reason for the project. Whereas a Virgo or Taurus will want to know the details. A Capricorn will want to know the cost benefit analysis and an Aries will want to know the timeline.
A Leo will want to know how it will be presented and who gets the credit. A Cancer will want to know how it helps people and a Gemini will want to debate on other ways of doing it. A Scorpio will want to understand the negative obstacles that may be faced.
A Pisces will want to make it fun and colorful and a Libra will usually want everyone to enjoy doing the project and will want everyone to feel equally valued in the project.
The south node is known to be someone’s comfort zone but it is detrimental to them to work in this area because they do not learn. If someone is challenged in a way that relates to their north node, they are more likely to stick with a job. The north node is what someone’s soul came here to learn. They may not know this themselves but it is a highly accurate psychological road map.

How To Improve Upon Yourself
Just as you look at other people’s sun sign strengths and weaknesses, it’s important to look at your own. Do you have a temper or are you extra sensitive? Are you a natural leader or do you tend to be attracted to people all the time at work? Know yourself to become as balanced as possible.
Your astrology characteristics are not a sentence, they are your tendencies that can be balanced using your intention. You can get to know your own emotional needs so you can express them and you can even know how your own moods are going to shift by knowing the movements of the moon.
