Zodiac signs have inherent qualities that one cannot just shake off. Sometimes when you meet someone and admire a certain quality about them, if you have a good knowledge of the zodiac – you can almost attribute it to their sign and understand why they are a certain way.
We’ve all heard people say things like “Oh, you’re so organized. You are such a Virgo”. Or if they say, “You really command attention in a room, you must be a Leo!”, don’t be offended, just take it as a fair compliment. Similarly, if you think you have good leadership qualities, then maybe you belong to one of these 7 zodiac signs who are born leaders.
Had a friend in school who was the perfect student council head candidate? Or are you recalling your Zumba instructor and how great she was at managing all her students? Maybe your own husband just got promoted at his workplace and fits the bill of his new designation as if he was born to run the place.
There are 7 natural-born leaders, your zodiac signs and your acquaintances might be one of them. But who are these zodiac leaders? What are their traits and qualities? Read on to find out.
Aries is one of the fire signs from the zodiac. Naturally, they possess qualities that make them quite vivacious, authoritative, and dynamic in the eyes of others. Their determination to get things done is also very strong. An Aries achieves success partly owing to their energetic and restless nature, according to some.
An Aries is highly resilient and strong in the face of adversity and never scared or timid. They carry themselves well amongst strangers and even in the most uncomfortable of situations. No one has ever seen an Aries breaking down or letting external stress get the better of them.
They tackle the problems in life head-on and are successful more often than not. They also command a lot of respect and people see them as visionaries and highly reliable leaders.
2. Leo – Leader of the zodiac signs
The horoscope and general character traits of this particular fire sign have placed them as highly natural-born leaders who show the way to others. Who is the leader of the zodiac signs? That has to be Leo. In general, Leos have a dominant attitude toward everything in life and people notice this personality trait which is generally attributed as a reason for their high rate of success when dealing with people. The alpha male in your circle is most likely a Leo.
They carve out their own niche, are fiercely independent and original, and can do anything for the love they believe they are deserving of. Leos are generally friendly, outgoing, and giving. They are the ones in the friend circle who throw random and regular house parties.
The downside of the Leo is that they can be quite volatile, angry, and even panic-stricken when something goes wrong, and this makes others misunderstand them. They are fierce zodiac signs. They have a tendency to treat everyone as subordinates to them for they are indeed the leader of the zodiac signs. However, they must learn to be flexible and accepting of others’ opinions as well and give them the respect they deserve.
Scorpio is not a fire sign; however, it possesses many character traits similar to fire signs due to its connections with Mars (previously it was said to be ruled by Pluto). Mars is known to be the planet of arms and warfare. Scorpio also has connections to Saturn, the planet responsible for teaching us various life lessons through experiences and hardships in life. This makes Scorpios extremely strong, bold, and independent right from the beginning of their days as young adults.
Scorpios are well-known, rather notorious in the Zodiacs as the evilest sign. However, how much truth actually exists in this statement?
Because Scorpios are one of the Water Signs (the trio Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces), they are quite flexible and can fashion themselves according to others’ requirements. This can make many people try to take advantage of them. They are the most sensitive and emotional zodiac sign of all, experiencing frequent bouts of emotions that can range from anger issues to being extremely calm. It is quite common for Scorpios to deal with occasional bouts of depression due to the negative feelings they engulf themselves in, secluding themselves from everyone else.
However, surprisingly, their sensitivity is not their weakness. The leader of the water signs has a lot more going for them. It gives them powers of insight, they can exactly look through a person’s façade and figure out their real motives. This gives them farsightedness, which is an essential quality for a bold and dynamic leader. When performing any task in a group, they jump right in and work diligently with their subordinates.
Cancers command a lot of respect in whichever field they choose. They have natural leadership qualities and they are someone people really look up to. Ironically, Cancers are quite sensitive in nature as well; most Cancers experience depression in life at some level or the other. However, they are rooted and realistic, also being a Water Sign, receptive to others’ feelings and opinions. This makes them someone worth admiring and they make highly entertaining artists and great public figures as well. That’s the biggest strength of zodiac signs like Cancer.
Cancers have high expectations from their family members or those close to them. They have a high level of intuition and are always planning their next move. That’s why they are also natural born leaders from amongst the other zodiac signs.
Their hard, external protective shell (Cancers are represented by a Crab in ancient as well as modern zodiacs) makes them cautious in their approach to most things, be it friendship, love, or profession and they are careful in whatever steps they take in life.
The star sign Aquarius produces great visionaries who possess an intuitive far-sightedness and are incredible decision-makers. They are meticulous planners and are often good at working with details. Aquarians think more rationally than they do emotionally which is why it makes them one of the zodiac sign’s natural-born leaders. Their emotional stability allows them to have great judgment.
With an empathetic side to them, similar to Leos – they want to use their energies to make the world a better place. Especially when it comes to the needy, their actions are guided by altruism and goodness. Abraham Lincoln stands testimony to the same. A true champion of the people, he was an Aquarius as well.
They also possess a great deal of courage which is essential to being a leader. By being their unapologetic self and having great faith in themselves and their ideas, they strive to change the world and are great at working with others to do so.
With an overzealous commitment to their work, if there’s somebody around your office with a brilliant work ethic, then they could surely be a Capricorn. This sign is inherently endowed with the qualities of being caring and nurturing. This further adds to them being the leader of the earth signs. Working hard towards something is second nature to them so don’t be surprised to find them in leadership roles.
They are often dignified and highly mature which makes them great problem solvers. Taking quick and practical decisions is essential to being a good leader and a Capricorn is always ready to tap into their rational side to arrive at decisions.
With a tenacious attitude, good judgment, and tirelessly helpful, a Capricorn is always easy to rely on and can make a great public leader. They hold any position of responsibility with utmost sincerity and dedication.
Ruled by the scales, their clear-mindedness, and goal-oriented approach is what makes Libra a great leader. So, if you’re wondering which Zodiac sign is the boss, your first response could probably be a Libra. Look at those around you. If you see people who naturally assume the role of a boss, command respect in a room and enjoy their superiority – well then you could have a Libra on your hands.
They may be a little smug, but in most cases, they are often well-liked by people for they are motivational and like to bring out the best in others. Their cause is to inspire, educate and change others. Thus, this also makes them very good leaders. Consider Mahatma Gandhi – he was a Libra and thus an incredibly determined man with a great following of people.
Libras enjoy a great deal of peace and fizzle out completely when there’s a situation of conflict. Conflict resolution just isn’t one of their strong suits which also makes them unsuited for violence. Leaders with a purpose, thrive on working towards the greater good of humanity.
You might or might not believe in zodiac signs and astrology, but if you do, then keep these signs in mind when you want to ask, “Which zodiac sign is the boss?” Noticed any born leaders around you?
