The zodiac says a lot about who you are as a person. From your likes and dislikes to your generally positive attributes and flaws, your star sign can provide insight into all the complicated parts of your personality. While the zodiac helps you to understand yourself, it can also provide some powerful predictions about your past, present, and future. 

Wouldn't you love to understand why you keep losing your job? Better yet, wouldn't you benefit from recognizing why you might get fired before it happens? Your zodiac sign can provide the answers. While it's far from an exact science, each sign has certain attributes that present challenges in the workplace. By understanding what the stars mean for you, you can track the actions that lead to the dreaded dismissal meeting you’re always working to avoid.

Ambition is basically a defining trait for you, Aries. You're often the star of your office, if only because your competitive spirit pushes you to prove that you're better than everyone else. Unfortunately, you don't excel at taking orders from other people. You prefer to be a leader rather than a follower, especially since you truly believe that you know better than anyone else.

You struggle to listen to instructions from the top dogs in your workplace and it's bound to catch up with you eventually. You can only ignore specific orders from your boss so many times before they have to let you go. You may have endless confidence in your abilities and decisions, but you still have to abide by the chain of command.

You're generally considered to be organized and dedicated, Taurus. However, you definitely abide by the rule that all work and no play makes Taurus a very dull sign. Work is a means to an end for you. You'll put in the hours at your job, but only so your materialistic side can enjoy its lavish vacations and long spa days. 

Unfortunately, you often forget to get those out-of-office hours approved. You're focused on your own pleasure, which means sending an email to confirm your vacation totally slipped your mind. Your overindulgence may lead to a wonderful life for you, Taurus, but heading out of the office whenever you feel like it doesn't sit well with your boss.

You get a lot of hate for those twin personalities battling for control in your head, Gemini. However, when you're in the office, your social side always wins. You're ruled by communication, which makes you the social butterfly of your workspace. 

Unfortunately, you struggle to let go of your chatty nature long enough to actually get any work done. You're always gossiping with your coworkers about the latest office scandals - and you leave all your unfinished assignments waiting until you've exhausted every talking point on every rumor.

Your gossipy ways may become too much for your boss, as you not only contribute to most of the drama in your workplace, but also clearly like gossiping more than you like working.

If there was one word to describe you, Cancer, it would definitely be sensitive. You can't help it. You're an emotional sign who feels things very deeply. You can't flip a switch and turn off all your intense reactions simply because you're in the office. 

You tend to take things personally, leading to quite a few outbursts of frustration in your office. You try to hold back your tears and refrain from giving your coworkers the silent treatment, but your emotions always beat your logic. Unfortunately, having an emotional breakdown every week isn't conducive to a professional workplace. You may have gotten a sympathy pass for a while, but the latest outpouring of emotion may just be too much for your boss.
