Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, afterall, that’s what makes us human! While you may want to focus on strengths, it’s also important to look at our weaknesses as well—so we can learn where we struggle, and work to improve on those areas. However, when it comes to strengths, this quality can manifest in a variety of different ways. So which sign in the zodiac is the strongest of them all? We have a couple of options for that question, because there are all kinds of different versions of strength out there!

First Off, There are Different Kinds of Strengths

Know the different kinds of strengths and how they manifest

When you think of strength, there are many things that can come to mind. First you might think of physical strength, such as that of athletes and amateur sports enthusiasts. It’s amazing that when we train our bodies a certain way, we are capable of completing such physically hard tasks! But there are other types of strengths, some that are not so obvious as a well-trained physical body.

Emotional strength

When you speak about emotional strength, you may think of someone in your life who freely expresses their emotions, and welcomes this expression in others. You might also see emotional strength referred to as inner strength, since at its core, this kind of strength shows when you’re navigating the ups and downs of life. We cannot control what happens in life, but we can control our emotional response to it. People who are emotionally strong are able to see when others need to rely on their kind of strength, and can be a very good person to turn to for support when things get tough.

Physical strength

Again, this might be what first comes to mind when you’re thinking about the strongest zodiac sign. Some people are naturally drawn to being physically fit, and they enjoy all the fun you can have playing team or individual sports. People who possess this type of physical strength must also have the mental toughness to keep going when they’re body is ready to stop. By drawing on both types of strength, they’re able to reach new heights in their fitness or sport.

Strength of character

You’ve probably heard the phrase “it builds character” before, but what does that actually mean? Well it could be referring to what is best in each of us, and how we present those positive qualities to the outside world. Traits such as kindness, hope, love, teamwork, gratitude, honesty, and curiosity are all considered character strengths. Depending on your zodiac sign, you may exhibit these types of strengths differently than another sign, but regardless of your sign, you are still emanating these kinds of positive strengths out into the world. 

Power of influence 

Another way we typically think of strength is by how influential someone is, and how effective they are at leading others. Sometimes it seems that people are great, natural leaders who can effectively manage people and businesses. These kinds of people are able to maximize their interactions with others, and typically can read people very well. When you think of people who are powerful in a community, this may be because they excel at interpersonal connections, allowing them to engage with people easily. 

Since there are a variety of strengths, it’s hard to choose just one zodiac sign that is the strongest. Being strong can mean a lot of different things, so instead of picking just one sign out of the twelve, we’ll discuss the signs that exhibit the type of characteristics most commonly associated with the types of strengths we discussed.

Strongest Zodiac Signs (in No Particular Order!)

These are the signs that distinguish themselves from the others by their powerful qualities

Here are the top five zodiac signs that are synonymous with strength:  


Fire sign

July 23-August 22

As you might expect from the lion, Leos are natural born leaders who have a penchant for getting things done. Although they can be dominant at times, when this trait is tempered by their genuine good nature and willingness to go the extra mile, many people find that they are very easy to follow. This fiery sign can also exhibit a good amount of self-control, which helps them achieve their goals, and endears them to both colleagues and friends alike. 


Earth sign

April 20-May 20

Another powerfully built animal, the bull, is also considered one of the strongest signs of the zodiac. Taureans are known for the down to earth attitude, as well as their patience, reliability, and perseverance. They are incredibly practical people, which makes it easy to approach them and get to know them better. This sign also excels at being there for others, as well as taking responsibility for their actions. Not only are Taureans naturally powerful people, they are also down to earth enough to offer a friendly shoulder to cry on when need be. 


Water sign

October 23-November 21

When people think of Scorpios, strength might not be the first quality that comes to mind, but in many ways it should. Scorpios are one of the most emotionally attuned signs, and their capacity for care and kindness towards others is due to their inner strength and depth of their character. They are sensitive, but at times fierce, making them a balanced leader in any personal or professional situation. This sign shows incredible resourcefulness, and when their mind is set to a task, they can be incredibly stubborn about completing it to the best of their ability. Maybe we could also use a little more perseverance when times get tough, like our Scorpio friends!


Fire sign

November 22-December 21

Sagittarius zodiac sign

Sagittarius signs are known for their indelible sense of humor and good spirits, which makes them easy to get along with. If you fall under this sign, you also have a good deal of emotional strength, when it comes to both how you express yourself in the world, and how you help others deal with their emotions. This level of inner strength helps them see the good even in bad situations, and they tend to learn from their mistakes. Always optimistic, Sagittarius takes their experiences in the world and learns to broaden their horizons. 


Earth sign

December 22-January 19

Because Capricorns are some of the most hardworking out of the zodiac signs, it goes without saying that they exhibit a great deal of self control. When there is a task that needs to be done, they focus their attention on it until it is completed, according to their high standards of course. They stay calm and cool under stress, which makes them very effective and strong leaders. Because they are a grounded earth sign, Capricorns are also very good at dispensing good advice, even if it’s something you don’t necessarily want to hear—they are honest to a fault. 

We would be remiss to not have an honorable mention for Aries, who are also known to be great, take-charge leaders and decision makers. Their confidence in their abilities makes them very influential, and they’re always prepared to make the final decision.

So there are our top strongest signs of the zodiac. Just because your sign wasn’t mentioned doesn’t mean you aren’t a strong person! Each sign has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it’s all about how you develop and share your strength with the world around you.
