Tired of dealing with the boss from hell or that employee who dissolves into tears every time you look at her crosswise? Sally Cragin is here to help. The syndicated astrology columnist and author will be at Gibson's Bookstore on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. to talk about her new book The Astrological Elements: How Fire, Earth, Air and Water Influence Your Life. Grouping the 12 astrological signs into categories based on the four elements, the book attempts to give people direction in their work and personal relationships.
"I think most people are responding to the chapters about bosses and employees," Cragin said via e-mail.
That boss from hell may just be a fire sign boss (Aries, Sagittarius, Leo): "They'll expect some initiative from you, but chances are they may lose interest in exactly how your project turns out," Cragin said. And that weepy employee may be one of the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), who, by the way, have some real strengths when put in authority. "Water sign bosses will be sensitive, no matter how high up the food chain they are," Cragin said. "At their best, they can sympathize with the worker against 'the man.' At their worst, they're untrustworthy and moody."
Cragin will be at Gibson's when the moon is waxing and in the sign of Virgo, which rules health, work and service, she said.
