Leadership — based in natural power, courage and control, it’s a quality most people respect and many desire to possess. After all, who wouldn’t want to command a room as soon as they walked into it? We all want others to listen to us, to treat us with respect and to recognize our authority. But the world doesn’t just need leaders. It also needs followers — people who take direction well and comply with the rules; people who manifest others’ visions by carrying their ideas through to the finish. When it comes to getting great things accomplished, people rarely do it on their own. Instead, they join together in teams of leaders and followers — visionaries and those who bring those visions into reality. Thus, both leaders and followers are essential to progress. Are you a leader or a follower?
Aquarius marches to the beat of your own drummer. While you’re a natural people-person, you also enjoy flying solo, as you need freedom to explore your many creative, innovative ideas. These qualities make you a strong leader, if a somewhat quirky one: You know what you want; you have good ideas for how to make it happen; you enjoy rallying others to join a cause you believe in; and you definitely don’t want anyone to hold you back from manifesting your vision. Your unusual methods can be quite appealing to those who enjoy being near your personal brand of creative genius. While you make an excellent leader, you can also make a fine follower, utilizing your strong stamina and endurance to join with others, complete projects and achieve goals. Interestingly, Aquarius is tied with Scorpio as the two most common Zodiac signs of United States presidents (throughout U.S. history, there have been five Scorpios and five Aquarians serving as heads of state — more than any other sign).
