When two housewives get talking, anything can happen. There’s no topic too taboo, nothing too wild and, regardless of shock content, it’s always interesting. (Normally right about now we would list all the outrageous things our favorite ladies have said recently, but honestly, the list would be too long and we do not have that sort of time.)
In their Housewife to Housewife chat (seen above), The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss and The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Gizelle Bryant interviewed each other and asked all the important questions. (Like “is Beyoncé a robot?”) The most important of which was “what’s your sign?” Interrupting Gizelle’s response to “what three qualities make (her) a good entrepreneur,” Kandi blurted out the astrological inquiry, because, Kandi, like us, is an astrology buff that knows that the two are interrelated.
Gizelle, without missing a beat revealed herself as a Virgo, listing Virgos' trademark qualities of being organized, committed and determined. Kandi on the other hand is a Taurus, who have a tendency to be perfectionists and also have a strong connection to finances. Yup, sounds like Kandi.
We spoke to Tess Lee, a queer astrologer based in Gainesville, Florida. Tess blogs at astrogrlz.com, and shared the strengths and weaknesses of each astrological sign in relation to career and the workplace with us.
Are you a passionate Aries that throws yourself into your work like Jeff Lewis and Vicki Gunvalson? Or do you find yourself not concerned with details and sometimes your projects go the way of fellow Sagittarius Sonja Morgan’s toaster line? Will you read that Libras can use their charm and attractiveness to their advantage when it comes to selling a product and think that sounds just like you and Tom Schwartz? (And that you really want to go to Tom Tom?) Or are you a Scorpio entrepreneur just like your girl Bethenny Frankel? We have these answers and your hustle horoscope so you can learn how to use your star sign to your benefit just like your favorite Bravolebrities.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo Bravolebrities: Caroline Manzo, Padma Lakshmi, Tamra Judge, Lala Kent, Gizelle Bryant, Lisa Vanderpump
Strengths: Virgos are efficient, organized and deliberate in their communication. They have very complex minds so they are able to process things thoroughly and respond with the most appropriate actions. They use their critical nature for good by giving honest feedback. Most of all, they are dedicated workers.
Weaknesses: Virgo can be too hard on themselves and second guess their actions. They are so devoted to creating the perfect end result that getting there can be filled with too much revision causing conflicts with deadlines. They also get anxious when their calculations aren’t right.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra Bravolebrities: Shep Rose, Kelly Dodd, Meghan King Edmonds, Monique Samuels, Mike Shouhed, Tom Schwartz
Strengths: Libra is the most diplomatic sign of the zodiac. They are focused on finding solutions where everyone can be satisfied. They also use their charm and attractiveness to their advantage when it comes to selling a product. Libras are known to be some of the best negotiators, relying on their soothing voice when communicating through conflict.
Weaknesses: Libras can be too focused on other people’s perception and expectations. They often fall into the trap of being a people pleaser and can find it difficult to stand up for what they believe in. Ultimately, Libras can be too focused on compromise preventing them from fighting for what they want.
Scorpio: (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio Bravolebrities: Phaedra Parks, Bethenny Frankel, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Ramona Singer, Cameran Eubanks
Strengths: Scorpio is enchanted by power and, therefore, when it comes to work ethic they do whatever is necessary to claim their own success. They are self-reliant making them perfect entrepreneurs. They like being in control of their work and do whatever it takes to produce the best outcome.
Weaknesses: Scorpio may have difficulty with seeing the shades of grey when it comes to business. Whatever they decide is the best decision they will stick with it no matter what, even if those decisions are bad. They can be too consumed with power and it may be hard for them to integrate in workplaces that requires teamwork and collaboration.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius Bravolebrities: Sonja Morgan, Golnesa Gharachedaghi, NeNe Leaks, Dorinda Medley
Strengths: Sagittarius is great with opening new opportunities and offering enlightened perspectives. They are very independent and equipped to stand their ground. They love to work with other people and offer honest but yet very eye opening feedback to others. Sagittarius works best when it comes to inspiring other people to work toward their best potential.
Weaknesses: Sagittarius is focused on the big ideas but can neglect the details that would bring their ideas into fruition. They desire to be the boss but their desire to be right and in charge can make their focus myopic. Sometimes they focus too much on the projected outcome of their product and not on the work itself.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn Bravolebrities: Dolores Catania, Sheree Whitfield, Yolanda Hadid, Kyle Richards, Jenni Pulos
Strengths: Capricorn has one of the best work ethics. They are known to be intimidating because they are very direct and hold themselves to a higher standard than others. They are great with organization and maintaining structure of their lives.
Weaknesses: Capricorn can be too hard on others to the point where expectations are too high and failure seems to be the only possible outcome. They are known to be too strict and controlling of others. Capricorns can naturally be limiting especially for the people that work around them.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius Bravolebrities: Craig Conover, Kameron Westcott, Brittany Cartwright, Kenya Moore
Strengths: Aquarius is willing to take risks no matter what. They are daring and can go to extremes to advocate for their causes. Aquarians are known to be innovative, controversial and inclined to promote radical change for the better.
Weaknesses: Aquarius can lack the ability to take charge because they are more likely to get distant when conflict emerges. If not distant, they can be too unwilling to see perspectives different than their own. At their worst, they can withdraw without notice.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces Bravolebrities: Kristen Doute, D’Andra Simmons, Josh Altman
Strengths: Pisces are the divine creators in the zodiac. They bring such creative and almost nonsensical approaches to the table that it is almost genius. They love to make their products unique and be part of a larger cause. Pisces are known to be tolerant and accepting people, which makes others feel safe around them
Weaknesses: Pisces lack the ability to be organized and on time. They often lack a personal structure in their lives so they can potentially be unreliable. In conflict, if they are losing an argument they remove themselves from the situation, which prevents further negoiating. They can also be painfully vulnerable that it makes logical reasoning processing difficult for them.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries Bravolebrities: Melissa Gorga, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Jeff Lewis, Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, Robyn Dixon
Strengths: Aries are go-getters who passionately and fiercely go after their goals. They are bold, have no issue with sticking up for what they believe in and can be rather persuasive in getting others to share their ideas. Aries are known to be warriors so they don’t give up as easily when it comes to their goals.
Weaknesses: Aries can struggle with organization and being “put together.” Their biggest downfall is perhaps the inclination to act before thinking. Aries can be very emotional and it can sometimes cloud their decision making process, especially with anger pushing them toward impulsive decisions.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus Bravolebrities: Luann de Lesseps, Kandi Burruss, Scheana Marie, Teresa Giudice, Gail Simmons
Strengths: Taurus takes their time with projects. They love being perfectionists and producing the most creative solutions. They are great deliberators and can be very matter-of-fact with what they want. Taurus has a connection to finances so they are great with sorting out money issues.
Weaknesses: Taurus can struggle too much with wanting things to be perfect that they miss deadlines and become demotivated. They give their all in certain projects but to the point where they become drained and its difficult for them to get back into the swing of things. Also, Taurus may be less inclined to hear different perspectives because whatever they think or say is ultimately what they are going to believe in.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini Bravolebrities: Cary Deuber, Siggy Flicker, Andy Cohen, LeeAnne Locken, Ashley Darby
Strengths: Gemini is clever when it comes to persuasion, which is an essential strategy in business. They are able to effectively communicate and do so in a way that is informal and exciting. Gemini is quick on its feet and can adapt to any situation, even the most risky.
Weaknesses: Gemini can be contradictory which some business associates may take as being unreliable. They can get too anxious during high-risk situations and some may see their indecision as a sign of instability. Ultimately, Gemini struggles with maintaining a concise identity that reflects back as being authentic.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Cancer Bravolebrities: Porsha Williams, Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley
