Real Life Example Moving Pisces to His Opposite (Virgo)

Engineer Fred was my partner in a startup business many years ago. I was managing partner and running the operations side of the business while Fred focused on the engineering. He fell in love with a new technology that would “revolutionize” our market segment. We agreed that he would evaluate this technology along with a number of other technologies that were more established.

Fred forgot about everything except the new technology, which was proving to have more obstacles to implementation than expected. Pleas to evaluate alternatives were agreed to, but never implemented. With precious time ticking away, our other investor and I met with Fred for an update on our progress. The new technology, it appeared, had a significant flaw that, at the very least, would delay implementation for twelve to fourteen months. This is a lifetime in high technology businesses and might have proved fatal to our fledgling company.

We moved Fred toward Virgo by listing the various alternatives to be evaluated and giving them equal priority with very aggressive timelines. Using Pisces to move toward Virgo, Fred was given his choice of one alternative technology to evaluate. I too had to move from my Scorpio CType, where I had focused on Fred as the one-and-only engineering resource, to my opposite, Taurus, where we would bring in other engineers to assist in the evaluations. In addition, I took over management of the evaluation process, using a Taurus-like systems-based approach.

We were, in a compressed timeframe, able to complete the evaluations and make an informed choice of the best technology for our purposes. The company produced a number of excellent products based upon the chosen technology, resulting in several millions of dollars in sales. As a footnote, the original technology upon which Fred had focused became a hit, but four years later.
