The Aquarius Boss - Traits and Characteristics

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes all those Born in between 20th January and 19th February. These people are marked by an open-minded and enquiring intellect – qualities which you are likely to find and appreciate in your Aquarius boss as well.

Believer in the unconventional

The Aquarius is reputed as the original rebel of the zodiac. These people pore deep over what makes the world tick and can be trusted to come up ideas and hypotheses which seem to be way ahead of their time. This is why they are attracted to the new and different. So the best way to get the attention of your Aquarius boss would be to stand out from the crowd not so much in terms of dress and appearance but in your approach to life. Show them that your thoughts and ideas do not take their counter from mere tradition but spring up from your own mind. If this seems too complicated, just be sure to avoid the trite and the conventional. Don’t for instance root for a political candidate or an advertising campaign just because everybody else seems to think they’re great. Reveal your individuality in opinions and actions and you can be sure of attracting the attention of your Aquarius boss.

An enthusiast of the new

In keeping with the spirit of innovation, Aquarius men and women are attracted to the highly advanced, whether in case of ideas, knowledge or technology. This is evident from the fact that they can be found using the latest smart-phone at work and toying with the most complicated gadgets in their leisure time. So when you are working for an Aquarius boss, don’t take pride in being technologically challenged and crib about how modern science is destroying the world. Try to keep yourself updated with the latest developments in the world of arts and sciences. In fact it is not even necessary for you to share your boss’s enthusiasm for gadgets that look like tablets and cost the earth, but be sure to adopt a more balanced view about how new thoughts and knowledge should be used for the betterment of mankind.

Humane outlook

The previous point actually brings one to an important aspect of the Aquarius personality – their genuine altruistic natures. And this coupled with a keen, probing mind makes Aquarians the visionaries of the zodiac. They are drawn to what will make the world a better place to live in and as a result many famous reformers and progressive thinkers have come from their ranks. Like the symbol of the Water Bearer which marks this zodiac sign, Aquarians believe in carrying the gifts of knowledge and thought and pouring it out for humanity. In your boss you may find evidence of this trait in his/her interest in adopting the latest energy conservation measures at the workplace or volunteering to update catalogues at the community library. If you want to impress your boss, it would be a good idea to share some of their goals for the betterment of society. However even if you don’t fully subscribe to an Aquarius’ humanistic code, make sure that you don’t come off as mean and petty-minded in your dealings with co-workers.

Uncomfortable with regimen

The curious thing about Aquarius bosses is that despite having people working for them, many are uncomfortable with strict nine-to-five schedules. They would much rather be away on field trips or in libraries researching on subjects that interest them rather than attending board meetings or being compelled to take policy decisions. In fact some zodiac experts would go so far as to suggest that Aquarians are cagey about giving orders and have no particular desire to direct others. The Aquarius president of the school where you teach would much rather let disciplinary issues be handled by the vice-president while he/she organizes brain-storming sessions on how to invite students from developing nations to international students’ exchange programs. This however doesn't mean that Aquarians do not make competent bosses. Despite being forgetful, eccentric and thus apparently unsuitable for executive positions, you can trust your Aquarius boss to win over people and projects with their uncanny powers of perception and their razor-sharp mental acuity. Add to this their broad, liberal Uranus philosophy which sees miles into tomorrow and catches the big picture in all its scope while others are still floundering over non-essential details and you know why your boss is where he/she is right now.

Their quirky natures

The Aquarius sign is ruled by two planets, Saturn and Uranus and perhaps this is why you may be puzzled by a curious duality in your boss. While he/she has a lively social life, they might appear to shun emotional intimacy. Similarly, they may be motivated by liberal humanitarian ideals but also impatient and headstrong when faced with resistance to his course of action. Sometimes this quirkiness of personality can get too much to handle; your boss for instance can be maddening when he/she plans complicated programs behind your back and springs them on you at the last minute. And there will rarely be an employee at your workplace who hasn’t chafed under your chief’s frustrating habit of handing over a completely new and unexpected job to do, blithely neglecting to explain the reason behind the change. However once you have learnt to take their unpredictable and erratic natures in stride, you will secretly come to find your boss a lovable old dear, who just minds the company’s business and never interferes into yours.

Finally always be prepared for change when working for an Aquarius. It is perfectly possible when you arrive for work one Monday morning to find that your office has been moved to another floor and your boss simply forgot to tell you about it. Or perhaps he/she will announce one fine day that guys from the IT department are coming into to overhaul your entire computer system. While working for an Aquarius you need to adjust quickly and be flexible since this is a personality always on the lookout for newer ideas which will finally make things better for everyone.
