In the (now dreamlike) days spent working at the office, our open floorplan revealed a glaring fact: My desk mate was organized; I was not. Her monitor rested on a neat stack of color-coded books. Mine, caught in a web of dusty chords, was a rest stop for frantically-written sticky notes and old drawings. The files on her desktop lived in labeled folders lining the edges of her screen. My desktop housed a constellation of old screenshots, article drafts and meme fodder. The stark comparison made me question why I was so messy, and if there was anyone or anything I could blame for my chaotic tendencies. Enter, astrology: our elemental guide to human nature.
