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?
The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is a born leader. Confident, headstrong and energetic, you know what you want, you demand that you get it, and you won’t take no for an answer. You’re a natural at commanding others’ attention and respect. You don’t mind competition; in fact, you enjoy going head to head to prove your mettle. Your boldness speaks for itself, and you’re comfortable being the boss. In your work, you need plenty of autonomy; you chafe under the restriction of being micromanaged by someone else, and may operate best when working on your own. Possessing strong interpersonal skills is important for you, since follow-through isn’t your forte. You tend to start lots of projects, but you don’t actually finish many of them on your own. That’s where a good, supportive team of friends or colleagues comes in: They can take your bold ideas and run with them.
