Is my Zodiac sign to blame for my messy desk?

Do you think about your Zodiac sign and what it means for you? I regularly have a quick read of the star sign page in the newspaper to see what the week ahead has in store for me. Sometimes I think ooh that is so true for what is going on in my life at the moment. Yet other times I think what a load of rubbish.

My Zodiac sign is Pisces, I fall on the cusp of Aries and Pisces. I’m not sure that my traits are really that true of a Piscarian. Astrologists say this about us Piscarians.

Selfless, they are always willing to help others, without hoping to het anything back. Pisces is a water sign and as such this zodiac sign is characterised by empathy and expressed emotional capacity. Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent.

So I guess thats me, I am kind and always happy to help others out. However I can also be selfish opposed to selfless but no-one is perfect… right?

I recently read that your tidiness is all connected to your Zodic sign, so I though I would see if I could have a reason for the organised chaos for my working space. I read that :

If your are Capricorn or Pisces your kitchen is full of gadgets which minimise the borel effect of organisation. These signs are ahead of the game, yeah their filling systems are organised, but probably because they’ve hired an intern to do it.

Now this is completely not me, I work in a mess. When I worked in an office you couldn’t see my desk because I had various documents all over it. Only I knew where everything was. Even today I work in a untidy way, various note books open at different pages full of ideas for blog posts or notes I have made. Or information from companies that have come in packages, items to use in photo’s. Anything any everything can be found on my desk with just enough space for my macbook to sit in.

I always try to keep my desk tidy, I think that I keep my desk looking neat and photo ready. Yet in reality I don’t, it doesn’t matter how many pretty baskets organisers I buy. I honestly cannot see that improving as much as I try, my desk will always be mess.

Although my desk is generally organised chaos, I am really quite an organised person. I have lists for everything so know who has what christmas present, or if I have got gifts for everyones birthday, shopping lists, holiday lists, generally I love a list. However you wouldn’t think that I was organised if you spent a day working with me in an office.

Over the years I have worked in a couple of different offices, nothing makes me happier than working from home using my vintage bureau it’s perfect for me. What kind of furniture at work do you have?
