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?
Pisces lacks many of the qualities of a good leader — in a wonderful way. Not being naturally competitive, you rarely feel the need to prove yourself to others. You aren’t concerned with power positions or hierarchies. You’re far more interested in supporting others as they chase down their dreams than you are in pushing your own agenda. Your go-with-the-flow perspective enables you to adapt well to change, which makes you an essential team member in times of transition or crisis. You can even serve as an emotional and spiritual beacon to others who are feeling hurt, lost or overwhelmed. On the other hand, you may not make the best follower, either — you’re a bit too adept at straying from the beaten path! No matter how sincerely you might want to follow directions, it’s all too easy for you to get distracted and wander off course. You operate best when you can rely on someone strong and trustworthy for partnership or guidance.
