What did you want to be when you grew-up? Does it resemble your current career path? If so, it may have been written in the stars.
Astrology—the belief that the positions and aspects of celestial bodies influence human personality traits and affairs—can be an interesting lens through which to view the characteristics and motivations of local government’s various stakeholders.
In this two-part post, we give you a zodiac sign and the local government role we believe best embodies its associated qualities. You tell us in the comments section whether or not you agree. Click here for our assessment of Aries through Virgo. Without further ado, GovPilot presents part 2! :
Libra (September 23-October 22), Police Officer
Because those born under it are so concerned with fairness, the Libra zodiac sign is represented by the scales of justice. If that doesn’t equip Libra to enforce the law, just wait until you learn our other reasons! Libras are very social. They enjoy having a partner, as police officers often do. Libras are known for their diplomacy, capable of patiently listening to different points of view—a trait that is certainly helpful to a police officer reporting to a scene. What else is helpful to a police officer reporting to a scene? Knowledge of prior government interactions associated with the address in question, as provided by GovPilot’s PropertyProfile feature.
Famous Libras in Government: Jimmy Carter, Mahatma Gandhi
Scorpio (October 23-November 21), Code Enforcement Agent
Who better than a water sign to ensure that the neighbors’ pool isn’t a breeding ground for mosquitos? The ideal Code Enforcement agent, Scorpios are hard-working and determined. Scorpios are observant, motivated by an intense need to get to the bottom of things.Scorpio-minded Code Enforcement agents love that GovPilot empowers them to take notes directly from the field.
Famous Scorpios in Government: Hilary Clinton, Theodore Roosevelt
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21), Councilperson
If you regularly read our blog posts, you know that Sagittarians are clever and creative. Jokes aside, the ninth sign of the zodiac is known to enjoy speaking with people and being out and about, so it makes sense that an archer would shoot for a spot on the city council. Once there, these truth-seekers like the insight into other departments that GovPilot’s Dashboard grants them.
Famous Sagittarians in Government: Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin
Capricorn (December 22-January 19), Business Administrator
Responsible and disciplined, Capricorns mean business and, in a municipality, their dominant personalities make them the best one to administrate it. Business administrators that think like this goat sign will consider GovPilot the G.O. A. T. The platform’s reporting capabilities mean smooth sailing for the business administrator’s tight ship.
Famous Capricorns in Government: Benjamin Franklin, Richard Nixon
Aquarius (January 20-February 18), IT Director
Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac, always thinking of the future. This intellectual water bearer thrives when they are free to engage in creative problem-solving. Even better if these solutions benefit multiple people, as Aquarians are humanitarians. Aquarians make great IT Directors and, as we know, municipal IT Directors love GovPilot for our platform’s security and simple deployment as well as for our dedicated customer service team.
Famous Aquarians in Government: Susan B. Anthony, Abraham Lincoln
Pisces (February 19-March 20), Parks and Recreation Employee
This fish enjoys nature and is well-suited to maintain the integrity of your city’s parks and fields. Pisces are very empathetic, which means they’ll understand when a resident makes a last-minute plea to reserve a public grill for barbecuing. Pisces have a tendency to be self-sacrificing, but they won’t have to compromise their priorities if they leave permit requests to GovPilot’s digital forms and automated workflows!
Famous Pisces in Government: Neville Chamberlain, George Washington
