Working for an Aries Boss: High Expectations, Great Results

Hello, I am here to help guide you. I have an interest in astrology that flies over the basic and into the actual intent of the concepts.


The Ram Knows How to Lead

Aries was born to lead. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries has a strong desire to get the ball moving. This is not someone who likes to sit on the sidelines and wait. They have boundless energy to go into battle. They have great instincts when it comes to hiring, assembling teams, and slaughtering the enemy -- whatever is the enemy.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. He was born to lead a new world after everything seemed to fade out. He is fueled by fire, by flowing mental energies, and the changing of the seasons. This is someone who relies on their intuition and brains to get things started. An Aries boss is one of the best bosses you can have. Count yourself lucky if you have an experienced Aries boss. This person has high desire to do what needs to be done to get things in motion, they have great instincts, and they can be insanely charismatic.

  • They give no room for naysayers. You need to be committed to them if you're on their team. Your Aries boss hates doubt.
  • The Aries type has her eyes focused on success.
  • Aries bosses are brilliant at defeating targets.
  • Fire signs are naturally competitive -- Aries and Leo in particular are driven toward success and power.
  • Aries won't be an easy boss for those that need someone a little more sensitive or restrained. Aries doesn't have a filter. They say it like it is.

Aries has high expectations of its team members, it will fire those who under perform. On the other hand, this leader will develop new employees to great heights. Aries loves to mentor and guide. They want to brand you with their knowledge and expertise.

Some of the qualities that give Aries an extra boost as a leader:

  • A drive that's nearly unmatched. Aries is fueled with the desire to conquer her goals. Get ready to ignite!
  • Aries is aware of its weak points and will hire someone to take care of the responsibilities it doesn't know how to perfect.
  • Aries is born into the world ready to go. Aries doesn't spend as much time in introspection. They're constantly looking for opportunities to succeed. This is someone who wants to live and not be idle.
  • Aries wants you to succeed. They don't just want empty gains for themselves. Aries wants its kin to be rewarded with success just as much as themselves.
  • Aries has less fear compared to other signs because it is new, young, and less experienced. Experience and sagacity are great, but they can also slow you down, that's why a pure, unmitigated flame can do great at moving the needle. A flame like that can lead an army into battle without slowing down too much and getting caught in all the details.

Aries Under Pressure

Aries bosses will have the same type of problems in common. They likely will have a sharp tongue and will be in desperate need of having a better filter. Aries can say the wrong thing and rub someone the wrong way. Aries doesn't always try to be politically correct -- or sane for that matter.

The Aries boss may get burnt out if they do too much all at once. Aries is the type that by the Friday work day, they're getting pretty restless and just want to get to the weekend. They may leave early before they really should.

Aries is someone who loves to get things started, but they don't necessarily like to finish or complete projects. A wise Aries will put someone on the task to finish it for them. Aries wants to get things started, but they hate getting caught up in details.

Aries bosses can say the wrong thing under pressure. They may blindly agree with someone without analyzing all the points of interest. An Aries can be manipulated if they're not careful.

Aries can be set in their ways and not necessarily connect the dots with other people, generations, or their children. They need to constantly expand their horizons and challenge themselves so they don't accidentally tunnel their perspective.


Aries and Team Dynamics

Aries is someone who can get too excited about an idea and not realize that trying to manifest it with a particular group doesn't pan out. They may have really high expectations and ideals that are not entirely founded or ready for reality. They'll of course try to bring about their vision because they are Aries, but they may not have the right tools or people to bring about that vision.

Aries needs to understand that there are groups that can't really be managed, and they may have to lower their expectations with some groups to make it work. Aries can only handle this for a short amount of time before needing to find a new group or starting a new group.

Aries unfortunately has several blind spots that they have to watch to make sure things don't sneak by them. They're so focused on goals, getting things started, inspiring others, and charging into battle that they don't always take stock of other angles.

Taurus gets even more blindsided than Aries. Taurus is the sign that follows Aries. These two, which act like siblings, need older signs to help them see more of the field. Aries and Taurus are both signs that symbolize youth and that boundless energy and excitement. The higher the number, the older and more mature a sign is supposed to act.

Aries is modeled after the warrior god Mars. Aries is about strength, courage, charisma, power, and passion. They are the movers and shakers of society. Aries isn't afraid of going into the field and taking on challenging tasks. They're ready for confrontation and arguments.

Aries as a team leader will yield great results. They need to make sure they have key players on their team to succeed. An Aquarius can help Aries arise to higher heights than previously thought. Aries will also appreciate Aquarian intelligence and imagination. Aquarius and Aries get along also because they're both more of leaders than managers.

Aries will need people they trust with earth and water qualities, but these types can annoy them because they tend to move slower. Pisces can be one of the best water signs for Aries because they fall near each other in the zodiac cycle.


Tips for Getting Along with an Aries Boss

  1. Come prepared. Do all your homework, be ready to take the test, and be ready to work. Aries wants to get going and not sit in the waiting line.
  2. Most Aries love to train and grow the people around them. They find this fulfilling and necessary for their vision to work. If you are new in town, try seeing if the Aries will help mentor you so that you can succeed.
  3. Don't lie, sneak, cheat, steal, or do other dumb silliness around an Aries. They'll hunt you down. You will be fired. So end your laziness and push yourself more to work harder and more diligent.
  4. Find common ground and common interests. Listen to them and figure out what they like and how you can contribute to that.
  5. Stay calm if in a confrontation. If you give off calm energy in your interactions, Aries will follow that energy. Aries has a lot of karma like energy so what you give them is what they'll give back.

Other fire signs with Aries:

Aries likes other fire signs if they'll be in agreement with each other. They want fire signs on their team that are headed toward the same end goals.

Signs with the same elements tend to work well together because they understand each other. Aries could potentially butt heads with another Aries -- think of it as two rams in the middle of a battle over a sheep. It's best if Aries leads, so if you have multiple Aries in a team, you may want to give each of them different leadership roles that don't intersect too much. It's a good idea to spread out the Aries energy, so it doesn't create too much fire and free-will in one spot. Aries should be balanced out with more chill signs.

Leo is a similar story with Aries. The difference: Aries is more of a commander, a war-leader, and a strategist. Aries is a general while Leo is a king. Leo governs, writes policy, and gets their head into more administrative work. Both of these signs are dominate types. Aries and a Leo on a team can either work in escalating success or turning into quarrels.

Aries would like Sagittarius as an employee, particularly a researcher. Aries will want Sagittarius to use its wild energy to cast a net for success. Sagittarius has a great deal of potential and energy. Aries appreciates Sagittarius for its brainiac ways. Aries will want Sagittarius to step up to the plate to take on more elusive challenges. Aries will know how to guide Sagittarius and give them the reigns, but Aries will have to be careful not to be too domineering with a Sagittarius which would cause them to exit as quick as possible.

Earth signs will appreciate that Aries wants to get things moving, but they'll worry that Aries is trying to do too much all at once... and doesn't realize how much work their Aries boss is giving them. Taurus would make an excellent team member for Aries. Taurus wants to organize and prove they can do things better. Taurus can help organize the chaos Aries leaves behind.

Aries will find Virgo mysterious and confusing, but they'll appreciate Virgo's work ethic, cerebral and logical ways, and perfectionism. In fact, Aries would pay good money to get a Virgo on her team. Virgo's diligence is appealing to Aries. And Capricorn is the kind of sturdy, stable, and reliable person that Aries needs on its team. Capricorn has a maturity that will be prized by the Aries. Capricorn will need to work hard and avoid hibernation-like tendencies.

Water + fire makes steam. Water signs may find it challenging to work for Aries. Cancer is moody and when there is constant change under an Aries that can make them feel too under pressure.

Cancer will worry that her concerns and issues are not taken seriously. Cancer works better on a team that focuses more on collaboration than competition. If Aries makes things too competitive, Cancer may quit and look for a job she finds more reasonable.

Scorpio is up for some competition -- they can work exceedingly well with an Aries, as long as the Aries shows loyalty to their employees and isn't just using them for gain. Scorpio is a hard worker who is also driven by success. Scorpio is also ruled by Mars, so they understand the tasks that are at hand. Where Aries wants to lead and get things started, Scorpio wants to finish off the battle. Worst case scenario: Aries and Scorpio become immortal enemies.

Pisces offers something to Aries unlike all the other signs. Aries will prize Pisces for its wisdom, understanding, empathy, and hope. Pisces will need to be stationed in a special spot in the office. They're not meant for competition and gains, but counsel. Aries needs someone who has eyes that they don't. They need Pisces for her priceless guidance. Aries will have far better operations with a Pisces companion.

Air signs are naturally compatible with fire signs. Gemini may elude Aries, but Gemini's brains will be prized. Aries LOVES smart people. Aries rules the head, but they're more known for desire and free-will. Aries wants intelligent people around them to get things moving. If you don't see yourself as being all too bright, then Aries might be an awful boss for you. Aries will want to keep Gemini in a specialized position, one that wouldn't fit others as well.

Libra may confuse Aries. They'll want to put Libra in a position that's good for them -- socializing, as a harmonizer, a sounding board, a connector of sorts. Aries wouldn't (and shouldn't) put a Libra directly into battle or on the frontlines. Libra should be used to assist others, to be a friend, and to create a positive workplace environment.

And finally, Aquarius. Aries is searching high and low for an Aquarius brain. The Aquarius can help the Aries vision get not only manifested but beyond the Aries' wildest dreams. The stars will align for Aries if they include the ever-so-strange Aquarius. This will be a highly protected and used person in the Aries team assembly. Aquarius is one of their highest and most prized soldiers, thinkers, friends, advocates, and disciples. Aquarius also loves Aries because then their weird and wild fancies get manifested. It's a dynamite pair.
