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?
Virgo is the Sign of Service, which says it all. A natural follower, you’re compassionate and considerate; you take direction well, and you feel most fulfilled when working selflessly for someone you love or respect. Instilled with a strong sense of duty, you don’t shy away from hard work, especially not when it’s something you believe in. Your frugal nature and practical perspective make it easy for you to bring others’ grandiose ideas down to earth, where you can modify them into something feasible in the real world. Your tendency to be hard on yourself — harder than anyone else — makes you an excellent employee or team member, since you hold yourself to such high standards. Trustworthy and diligent, you always strive to do your best. You’re an asset to any group or team of which you’re a part.
