What is the Most Powerful Zodiac Sign?
Power is an illusion. Or as Lord Varys says in Game of Thrones, “Power resides where men believe it resides. It's a trick. A shadow on the wall.” Power can mean different things to different people. But all of us agree that someone who wields influence over others has the most power. The zodiac signs we are going to talk about here might not always be the leaders. They probably don't even seem to embody the characteristics that we typically associate with strong, powerful people. Yet, they wield influence over those around them. In fact, if you think about things again, after reading this article, you will realize nothing happens against their wish. Want to know who is the Tyrion Lannister in your circle of friends?
Here are the 5 most powerful zodiac signs!
1. Scorpio (October 23rd – November 22nd)
Open any book on Astrology. Refer to any article. You will always find Scorpio mentioned as one of the strongest and most powerful zodiac signs. Just think about that strong, intimidating gaze that they have. The look that makes everyone tremble and sends shivers down the spine of the weak. Not to talk about their aura and behavior in a crowd.
They derive their power from the intensity of their conviction. And when they set their mind to something, they achieve it. Many people feel intimidated by the people born under the Scorpio zodiac sign. I used to be someone who thought that this was actually a weakness of the Scorpions. But here’s where their true power lies. They can change their personality depending on the person they are dealing with. The shrewder men and women of this zodiac know whom to please and whom to intimidate. This helps them influence people.
They are wonderful leaders. And one of the reasons they can lead is that they can do the entire team's work on their own. They don’t have a team because they can’t get the job done. They have a team because more people help get the job done faster.
Their teammates know that the Scorpio can do the job better. So, they feel no problem accepting the Scorpio’s advice. But it is their empathy that keeps the team together. They can inspire as well as they can intimidate. After all, it is nothing to wonder about that most United States Presidents have been Scorpios. And that’s saying something.
2. Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You can love them, or you can hate them. But you cannot ignore the kings and queens of the jungle.
The royal air of this zodiac sign gives them power over the rest of the astrological signs. Only a few usurpers even dare question the authority of the Leo zodiac sign. Sometimes I feel that there is inherent fealty among most zodiac signs towards the Leos. Only a few bold or crazy ones dare to challenge them.
This power and influence come from their external appearance as much as it does from their internal personality. Externally, they live a life everyone aspires for. Their style, their personality, their tastes, their interests, everything is curated to perfection.
Internally, they know how to dominate people. It isn't violent domination that you would expect from a wild cat. But a very clever way of commanding everyone's attention.
The people born under the Leo zodiac sign are ambitious. Their definition of ambition might differ from yours. But whatever it is they aim to achieve; they will get it. They have a never say die attitude which inspires the people around them.
The only thing that keeps them from world domination is their arrogance. It is enough to put off a lot of people who choose to follow more humble individuals. But Leos who gain control over appearing arrogant to tend to be among the most powerful individuals, in their peer group, or the world (Barack Obama is a Leo).
3. Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
This is one sign whose status as a powerful zodiac sign will be hard to digest for you. But by the time you reach the end of this paragraph, I will have you convinced. The Taurus men and women don’t yield your typical influence. They aren’t the loudest, or the most visible.
They are the most rational thinkers in a group. Whenever there is a conflict, it is the Taurus' opinion that decides the matter. When the Taurus speaks, people listen. Their meek or detached exterior is a deception that everyone falls for. I'm not saying that they are political masterminds or anything. But power-hungry people don’t see the Taurus as a threat. This is where they make the mistake that the Taurus gains from.
They have an exceptionally amiable vibe with everyone around them. Taurus women and men are friends with everyone. Everyone loves the Taurus, and everyone feels that they are in their corner. The shrewder crowd in this zodiac knows how to take advantage of this image. But shrewd or not, Taurus do end up having a strong influence on all matters.
They have an innate ability to convince the people to see the world the way they want them to. And the fact that they aren’t stupid enough to accept good advice, makes them all the wiser. So, while you might not see ambitious Taurus’ running the world. Whenever they do want to move mountains, they end up doing it. Never underestimate the power that a Taurus can wield. Hitler is a good example.
4. Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)
Let’s clear one thing from the beginning.
The reason why Capricorn men and women aren't well-known as world leaders is that their ambitions tend to be selfish. If this quality was not so prominent in this zodiac sign, they would rule the world. Alas! It makes them short-sighted enough to not be able to lead people.
Here’s the thing: there is no zodiac sign as ambitious as the Capricorn Zodiac sign. This makes them dangerous. It certainly makes them extremely powerful. If you are the boss of a Capricorn you are probably laughing right now. But let me tell you this, his meek and submissive personality is only a ploy to get to where you are right now. She will probably be the boss of you someday.
Capricorns are known to marry only those people who can advance their ambitions. They rarely marry for love. Or they only fall in love with people who can act as catalysts for their success. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want.
They might not be influential or in leadership positions all the time. But they can be both when they want to. They don't believe in leading through inspiration. That is a consequence of good leadership. They believe in leading through example. And they tend to be great at it. Dr Martin Luther King Jr. is an excellent example. He's one of the few Capricorns whose goals weren't selfish, and history stands testament to the influence he wielded.
5. Aries (March 20th – April 21st)
There are a lot of reasons why Aries don’t end up in leadership positions. But that has nothing to do with their lack of power.
Aries mostly inspire a very niche group of people: revolutionaries. Their power ambitions are not to achieve high offices. It is to affect great change. The worst thing that can happen to an Aries man or woman is to die without helping the world.
They have strong personalities that dominate many groups and conversations. But their emotionally driven passion becomes too much for most people. Only people who dare to dream the utopian dream dare to follow the Aries.
Their energy and vitality are electric and infectious. It inspires many people to follow them and take action. They can move people and get things done. When they set their minds to something, they will get it. The problem is their inability to follow through and overestimation of what can be achieved. After all, they are dreamers.
Aries dare to dream the impossible dream. For a time, this gets a lot of people to stand with them. But Aries can't change their personality to get what they want. They are not master manipulators. What they do have, is a fire that burns so bright. A passion that helps them break walls and build bridges.
