Running a small business is not easy, that’s no secret. Sometimes, it can feel like nobody understands challenges you face on a daily basis. Hopefully you’ll feel better understood after reading your small business horoscope. Learn how to run a successful small business based on your Zodiac sign:
Aquarius (January 20- February 18)
As an Aquarius, you’re very independent, so owning or managing your own business comes naturally to you. Your dislike for limitations and dull situations may cause you to act out from time to time when it comes to your business. Instead, use this to rise to the occasion and become the best you possibly can- this way you’ll feel unlimited and successful. You also love helping others, and are a born good listener. Use these traits to your advantage and spike customer service at your business. Work one on one with your customers, since you have a knack for assisting them, and hearing them out. Occasionally, you may be uncompromising in terms of planning and strategizing. Just remember, compromising is a key part of running a small business, so try your best to be amenable with colleagues. Do not take it personally when an employee or customer disagrees with you- instead look at this as a way to improve your business and learn something new.
Pisces (February 19- March 20)
Pisces- you are a creative force to be reckoned with! Your gentle, intuitive, wise attitude makes you the ideal small business owner. Compassion is your natural instinct, which makes working with customers rewarding for you. You are able to truly grasp your business’ value and purpose, however, you dislike criticism of any kind. Try to look at things constructively, rather than losing hope. In addition, you tend to be fearful and sad when things are uncertain. Unfortunately, in the world of small businesses, nothing is certain. Learn to have faith in your business’ future, and you will feel more satisfied. Focusing on your personal needs such as sleep, music, and visual media will allow you to channel even more success into your business.
Aries (March 20- April 19)
Aries: You possess a perfect balance of confidence, determination, optimism, and passion- all extremely important ingredients for a successful small business. Your passion brought your business to life, so keep trusting and following your instinct. At times, you may find yourself feeling short-tempered or impatient. Maybe you do not bring these qualities to your business, and you should keep it that way! Being patient with your customers and colleagues may present a challenge for you, but its nothing you can’t handle. Being the natural leader that you are, you appreciate the role you play in your small business. Your dislike for work that does not use one’s talents may at times interrupt certain parts of your business. It may be in your best interest to hire an employee who excels in the portions of your business you shy away from.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Being the practical, devoted, responsible Taurus you are, you excel as a small business owner. You enjoy working with your hands, so it would benefit you to perform hands on work within your business. You may shy away from sudden changes and complications. This can be difficult, as it may cause you to shut down or feel frustrated. Resist the frustration, and learn to face complications head on. The immediate confrontation will satisfy you. You are also extremely stubborn! This is a strong trait for you which cannot be reversed, so you must learn to work with it and loosen your standards (without necessarily lowering them). Learning to be more compromising will greatly elevate your small business success. Beyond this, you are talented in many arenas of creativity and problem solving, both key components to running business smoothly. Customers and colleagues appreciate your patient demeanor and your wittiness. At the end of the day, your business is hopefully as reliable as you are!
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Gemini’s portray a gentle and affectionate persona, and tend to be very curious and adaptable. This makes you a great small business owner. Customers find it easy to trust you, as you genuinely look out for the best interest of others. It’s likely that you can understand the customer’s perspective! You dislike alone time, and thrive in social settings. It would benefit your business to work one on one with customers. Your weakness comes in the form of nervousness and indecisiveness. Both these setbacks can feel limiting, but are only there for you to overcome. Receiving input from trusted employees may help decision making easier for you. Too much routine turns you away, so try to lend your time to different areas of your business for optimal success. Overall, your ability to chat with nearly anyone stands out to those who know you. Try to use this to your advantage when connecting with colleagues, customers, and anyone else you encounter during business hours.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Hey there, Cancers! Your highly imaginative outlook, along with your persuasiveness and helpfulness shaped you into the business owner you are today. You embrace your hobbies and passions, so hopefully your business allows you to express those. You also approach hard tasks with vigor and determination; if you use this to your advantage you could find amazing success in your small business. Some days, you may have a tendency to feel moody and insecure about your business. This can feel like a set back, but as long as you leave your fears behind and keep dedicating your best efforts into your business, you will see positive results. Since you function best when your life is balanced between work and play, make sure you set aside time to relax outside your business.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
Leos- your passionate nature and creativity make running a small business come naturally to you. You have a cheerful demeanor, and a warm heart, which causes customers to feel comfortable around you. Take advantage of this and focus on sales, as you likely excel in this area. You also tend to act stubbornly, especially when facing a difficult reality. Although it may take more effort and strength for you, its important to face issues head on within your small business. If there is a dispute between employees, a financial concern, or any other problem, swallow your pride and dissolve it as quickly as possible. Furthermore, take time to appreciate your customers more, and your business will be positively impacted. When your business sees success, treat yourself to a special dinner with friends or go shopping, since you respond well to rewards. You deserve it!
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
Virgo, you are analytical, kind, hardworking, and practical. Those traits make up a pretty solid business owner. You may excel in managing your employees, and focusing on the “numbers” in your small business. Shyness, worry, and a self-critical attitude can at times take over you. You tend to be very hard on yourself and your achievements, so make sure that you take a moment to pat yourself on the back. Owning/running a small business is not easy, but you do it! Finding a balance of work and play will elevate your personal happiness greatly. You may strongly dislike rude or entitled customers. Try to see the best in them and give them the benefit of the doubt. In small businesses, the customer is always right (even if they are wrong!). Set aside time to read books, appreciate nature, and spend time on yourself in order to bring your best self to work every day, and reach your small business goals.
Libra (September 23- October 22)
As a libra, you are cooperative, diplomatic, fair-minded, and social. These qualities shaped you into the small business owner you are today! Your cooperation shows within your small business, and appeals to both colleagues and customers. You have the ability to communicate with customers, so use this to your advantage and boost your small business’ customer service! You tend to avoid confrontations when it comes to disputes between others or yourself. This can present many challenges if gone unchanged. It’s worth it to take the extra effort to confront conflicts straight away instead of instinctually putting them off. Your business can only run more smoothly because of this! You love sharing with others, so try hosting an event for your customers as a fun way to share and appreciate them. Conformity has never appealed to you, however, so keep being the unique individual you are, and running your business in the best way you know!
Scorpio (October 23- November 21)
Scorpios make the perfect small business owners. If you’re a scorpio, you know how much passion drives your life. It’s lucky your passion lead you to owning a small business! Your resourcefulness makes you stand out among other businesses. One thing you dislike is dishonestly. Because of this, it would benefit you to hire individuals who you trust. As you have a tendency to be distrusting and secretive, especially when it comes to your business, it is truly important that those working around you are familiar and trustworthy to you! Beyond all these attributes, your brave attitude allows you to face difficult realities with ease, and because of that your business is more stable. Lastly, you are a true friend to others, so try to treat every customer as a true friend, to earn points for customer service!
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
Sagittarius: Your idealistic persona makes you a visionary when it comes to owning a small business. You love freedom, so an owning or managing position fits you well! In addition to these great qualities, you may feel very impatient and constrained at times. Although difficult, you should make an effort to be patient when it comes to your customers or colleagues and remember how important they are to your business. Being the people pleaser that you are, customers overall respond very well to you. Just remember not to promise more than you can deliver when it comes to the product or service your business supplies. At the end of the day, you should seek time outdoors, or relaxing to balance out your work ethic.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)
One quality that stands out in Capricorns are their management abilities. Business owners need to manage employees, time, money, customers, and plenty of other things. So if you’re a Capricorn, you lucked out! You appreciate quality craftsmanship and services, so its likely that you hold your small business to very high standards. You tend to be a know-it-all, thanks to your intuitive and smart nature; just make sure to keep this in check when addressing colleagues and co-workers. You may also expect the worst in difficult situations. Try not to bring this into your small business! You need to truly believe in the success of your business in order for it to happen. Overall, your responsibility, discipline, self-control, and determination make you an excellent leader and example to employees and everyone!
