How Do You Define Powerful?

Many people may have a different understanding of powerful

Being powerful can mean a variety of things, and people use power in different ways.

When you think of the word powerful, what comes to mind? Do you envision a CEO running a company, a politician, sports stars, or maybe even social media influencers? All of these options wield a different form of power, whether that’s running a successful firm or business, having a say in creating laws, being physically good at sports, or having the power to influence followers, power can be defined in a variety of ways.

All of these definitions of power are valid, and depending on the situation, any sign could stand up and be considered powerful. However, based on your zodiac, there are some signs that have a little more going for them when it comes to wielding power.

Although all the zodiac signs have their own quirks and traits that make them who they are, there are a couple of signs that stand out from the crowd when it comes to knowing how to not only be powerful, but know how to use that power for success. Because power means different things to different people, we thought it might be helpful to consider the different definitions of power when choosing the top most powerful zodiac signs.

Aries Zodiac Icon


March 21-April 19

Aries are ruled by the planet Mars (the Roman god of war) so it only makes sense that they’re at the top of our list. If you’ve ever known an Arian, you know they are the take charge and get stuff done kind of people. Aries is also a fire sign, and these people are confident and fiesty enough to forge ahead—even if they need to make a brand new path forward!

Born leaders, Arians know that they have a knack for doing what needs to be done, and people follow their lead easily. Once they have an idea, this sign is ready to see it through till the end, and others love to follow their charismatic approach to getting things done.

Leo Zodiac Icon


July 23-August 22

Lions don’t get the name the King of the Jungle for nothing. Leos are extremely adept at leading, and they have the type of charisma that makes it easy to follow them. This sign is also ruled by the sun, which means they have the strength (both inner and outer) needed to complete any task, even the challenging ones. Leos can make powerful leaders who give it to you straight, and do not beat around the bush.

Leos wield their power graciously, and there is less arrogance associated with them than with Aries. Because Leo is also a fixed sign, you can expect these leaders to keep steady and reach their goal even when the going gets rough.

April 20-May 20

Taureans naturally take control of all kinds of situations, and being in charge just comes naturally to them. Images of the powerful bull often come to mind when you think of Taurus, and that’s just what many Taureans are.

Although this may seem domineering at times, Taurus just wants to make sure everyone is doing what needs to be done. This practical sign feels right at home making decisions and letting people know what it is they need to do. Because Taureans genuinely do want everyone to experience success and reach the goal, it doesn’t come off as bossy.


October 23-November 21

Scorpios are known for their deep emotional intelligence, and that is a powerful tool when used wisely. This sign is ruled by Pluto and it is a fixed sign, which means that once the course is set, a Scorpio has no problem doing what it takes to see things to the end. Their stubbornness ensures that no matter what needs to be accomplished, they’ll find a way to get it done, even if that means adapting and changing course to get their desired outcome.

Scorpios are very resilient, and they are comfortable in their own skin. This makes it easy for them to go out and get what it is that they seek, and have success doing it.


December 22-January 19

And finally, rounding out our top five most powerful zodiac signs is Capricorn, the natural leader and worker who gets it all done. This sign is ruled by Saturn, and they are known for being very reliable, responsible, and disciplined. They have high standards, and expect them to be met. It can be easy to work with a Capricorn, since they enjoy planning out tasks that will allow you to reach your desired goals.

Capricorns know that when you put in the hard work, you’ll be rewarded, which is exactly why they can wield a lot of personal and professional power.
