Astrology in the workplace: the good, the bad and the ugly

Sarah Murphy, creator of The Bruja Mix and Melbourne based astrologer and tarot reader, teaches us the signs when it comes to astrology in the workplace.

The workplace is a minefield of people, personalities, positions and roles. Work, like death and taxes, is inevitable. As we spend so many hours with our co-workers, they can become like a surrogate family. We don’t get much of a say on who these people are, but what we can do is understand our co-workers from an astrological perspective. Every astrological sign has its high vibe and its low vibe manifestation, its own little mini cheat sheet. From this we can deduce when they are being good, bad or plain ugly! The aim of this is to allow you to know when to appreciate your co-workers for their natural ‘je ne sais quoi’ or when to just ‘walk away’ from any potential work place drama. This is an inside guide into how to navigate the work place when things get a little weird! So here it is: sun signs in the world place!


The good: Strong leaders, passionate, abundant energy, creative

The bad: Overly competitive, burn out, haven’t worked out this is a marathon, not a sprint

The ugly: Random outbursts or me’isms, aggressive


The good: Hardworking, stable and reliable

The bad: Slow and fixed in their ways

The ugly: Slightly indulgent with food or their bank balances, dislike any change, resistant to change


The good: Chatty, intelligent, multifaceted, can chew the hind leg off a donkey

The bad: Distractible, takes on too much, can chew the hind leg off a donkey

The ugly: Two-faced, un-readable, a little too good at lying


The good: Caring, nurturing, great business acumen
