Real Life Example: Moving Capricorn to Her Opposite (Cancer)

Barb is a typical Capricorn, working as a nurse manager in a fast-paced hospital setting. She is also a single mom, which adds significant stress to her life. Between work and home, she was caught in the trap of doing too much Capricorn. This meant doing, doing, doing, sometimes in a mindless swirl of action. She tended to micromanage or simply do other people’s work if she felt it wasn’t getting done. She began to have trouble at work when she found that some of her peers felt she was cold and unfeeling toward them, and that they resented her constant interference. As her list of things to do steadily increased, her productivity actually decreased.

We met with her and suggested that she move to her opposite, Cancer. Cancer makes everyone into extended family and then nurtures members of that family. This meant that Barb had to sit down with her people and ask them what she could do to support them. This was difficult for Barb, but she gave it her best effort.

Her people surprised her in sharing with her their feelings about her micromanagement and meddling in their jobs. They felt as though she didn’t trust them. We looked at ways Barb could delegate and still feel she was informed on people’s progress. A regular meeting was created where the only purpose was to look for ways Barb could support her people and they could support her.

Everything changed for Barb and her team with her move to her opposite. She also was able to take this approach home to her children, reducing considerably her stress level outside of work. As she nurtured herself, she somehow seemed better able to nurture those around her. Communicaton improved significantly, as did results produced in a more supportive team environment.
