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?
Scorpio’s love of being in control makes you an excellent leader. You always know what you want, and you generally have a plan — often a secret one — for how to make it happen. You work well on your own, and you enjoy seeing others do your bidding. You can have a hard time working under someone else’s leadership, so as an employee, you do best in a position with plenty of authority and autonomy. On the other hand, your excellent stamina and endurance translate to an ability to follow through with a plan or scheme; in this way, you make a strong supporter to someone else’s ideas and leadership. Here’s an interesting fact to note: Your sign is tied with Aquarius 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).
