Astrology says that according to the Zodiac sign and the natural element we belong to, there are certain common traits that define our personality. Many of these traits have to do with our temper, the intensity of our emotions, and our ability to communicate with others.

If you want to discover what are the most powerful zodiac signs, keep on reading this oneHOWTO article.

Steps to follow:


Everyone has their own personality, no matter their Zodiac sign. However, astrologers can find patterns and common traits in the people who were born when the sun was in a celestial house or another.

It may sound like a generalization, but look around you. Are your Pisces friends intuitive and creative, but self-doubting and melancholic? Do you know more than one intense, headstrong and brooding Scorpio? If the answer is "yes", astrologers may have a point.

These personality traits and drives make us call others to action, be reliable advisers, or drive us to constantly second-guess ourselves and keep on trying. Our Zodiac sign can help us know what kind of people we're going to get along with; for instance, some signs are more compatible than others for marriage.

Certain Zodiac signs have a stronger, more intense character and personality than others, which makes them become leaders and charismatic politicians or celebrities. Therefore, these signs could be considered "more powerful" in a social sense, which does not necessarily mean dangerous zodiac signs. Let's see which ones they are.

The Most Powerful Zodiac Signs - Step 1

Aries - 21st March to the 20th of April al 20 de abril

The sign of Aries is one of the most powerful in the Zodiac. They are full of energy and vitality, with an intense and adventurous personality. People born under the sign of Aries don't fear anything, they're always willing to begin new challenges and have a leader attitude, which also gives them great self-security.

They're also usually rebellious and impulsive, something that usually makes them have one or two enemies. Aries are also know for being one of the strongest zodiac signs emotionally. They're not afraid of sharing their point of view in any subject, they're quite stubborn and hard to convince. What makes Aries powerful is their capacity of leadership, energy and lack of fear.

Scorpios have a very strong personality, but they're also different from the rest of the zodiac signs for their intensity. This is specially visible on an emotional level, as Scorpios won't settle for anything and their non-stopping passion makes them unstoppable until they reach their desired goals.

People born under the sign of Scorpio are usually very critical, slightly arrogant and can be difficult to cope with on a daily basis. In love, they have a strong character too: Scorpios are among the most passionate signs, and they're very involved with their partners.

Although they're known for their sudden and quick changes, Cancerians are also very strong and persistent people. Specifically, they're usually very secure people who trust in their own competence, which makes them develop an ambitious personality in their working and sentimental life. People born under Cancer are very demanding with friends and partners, and they boast about their great sincerity, even if they have to hurt someone else's feelings.

What makes Cancer a powerful Zodiac sign is their self-confidence, which helps them get everything they want, and their perfectionism, which will allow them to create incredible things.

They're not fearful in the face of adversity, and they have a great capacity to design plans and strategies that help them reach their goals. Strength is what occasionally makes Leos too proud, arrogant and stubborn. Moreover, they are one of the most attractive zodiac signs.

Yeee tell these people how is done boy!
Actually, half the people on that list don't have verified birthdays. And in the reign of Louis XIV France was still competing for that title with other European powers.
My opinion as cancer i think yes we could be one of the most strongest sign.. when we are in group or team u will the cancer will lead them or at least will be the most hard worker member because we tend to do our best, their emotional and high feeling make them try for the best never stop never lose.. Our emotions is our strength
Now as An astrology fanatic I have learned that they are 4 elements;water, fire, earth, and wind. Of coarse you know there's 12 signs witch split up evenly into 3 signs per element. Each element has a cardinal sing which almost translates into the leader of that specific element. Cancer for water, Aries for fire, Capricorn for earth and Libra for air. These are the cardinal signs or as you would say "most powerful signs"
The cardinal signs are indeed the initators/leaders but most astrologers believe that the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are the most powerful on their elements because they rule the strongest expression of the element and the middle of the season (when the season is st their strongest).

Based on the traits I would suggest an Aries but who knows
1. Scorpio, 2. Aquarius, 3. Leo, 4. Taurus are the most powerful.
@Jule isn't it the stereotype that fixed sign are stronger than cardinal signs, it is just one part of the puzzle and you have not mention any other factors like planets, element, House, exalt. A sign is made of many parts . One part doesn't make a sign stronger . THERE was another stereotype that FIRE sign are stronger than other signs. THE TOP 4 According to many astrologers are SCORPIO, Leo, Capricorn, Aries read astrology books !!!
Yes, The Crab. Often underestimated by the novice. The Crab is a natural zodiac warrior. They have survived on earth for 400+ million years. Their claws are for crushing, cutting, and fighting. When confronted they raise them! When they fight it's to the death. They will fight anything before them and for anything they believe in. If a claw is damaged, or captured they will instantly self amputate and regenerate a new one. Not only do they walk sideways they are one of the only beings that can walk in every direction! Crabs are highly adaptable. They live in the hottest climates to the coldest. They live all over the world in water, land and even in trees. Cancerians were given the sign of the crab due to these observed traits. Cancer is ruled by the Moon which rules the ocean waters a whopping 71% of the earths surface. A Powerful Force. They are exceedingly Shrewd, Tenacious, Intuitive, Ambitious, Empathetic, and Compassionate. They have Tremendous Will Power! They can build an Empire in Business or Battle using their own instincts.
Scorpio and capricorn have tremendous willpower because they are ruled by malefic planets Saturn and pluto. Saturn - often know as limitations but not so.. See saturn has more power than most planets but it releases it power in controlled ways . PLUTO THE planet of transformation .It gives the power to rise from dust again and again. Both This has tremendous amount of energy to overcome adversities which other planets aren't capable of .Capricorn and Scorpio have to deal with this tremendous energy , so sometimes they might look like weak but it is this energy which is making them do such things. Something is called POWERFUL when it has the ability to be alone rise again and win and most of all INDEPENDENT .. cancer is all dependent and manipulate and too clingy for its emotional needs..+ After leo , the best sign to hold the position of the sun Is Capricorn and 3rd comes scorpio. .
Stupid things! Who believes in horoscopes?

Seems you didn't like something you read. knowing that it may be true, or you wouldn't have lashed out. or you just don't believe or trust in them. if you didn't, then it means you care or you would not off said anything.
What is it i am Pisces
You also forgot to mention Capricorn because Cancer is incorrect because cap, scope, Leo and Aries are the four strong signs who lead n about power
how can you say that when there are many powerful cancers. Mike Tyson Brock Lesnar Vin Diesel Sylvester Stallone Tom Cruise Phil Anselmo George w Bush
you must be a capricorn
Marley Akins
You forgot the lebra the tuarus and the peiseis
23rd October to 22nd November is Scorpio, right?
(October 23-November 21) U were so close! Good job! Just one day off.
Cancer is not a "strong" sign per say. They are sensitive, indirect, and sympathetic. Strong signs and leaders are usually fixed signs like scorpio, leo, aquarius, or taurus. However, each sign serves its purpose. However, cancer is def not the top 3 strong signs. Cancers are controlled by emotion rather than logic which is why they have the most criminal record in the zodiac. I love cancer, but I just had to say some facts.
Julius Caesar & Alexander the great were both cancers and they were no weak men
Julius Caesar and Alexander the great are not good examples. They were born in July, but that is ancient history. Who knows their birth. However, Mars is the planet that gives a person strength and describes their level of aggression. A cancer with a mars in aries or scorpio is a stronger person than most. sun signs do not mean everything. However, Cancers are protective, hard-working, but cannot handle many things which is why their emotions lead them to be the number one criminal.

There is nothing like a fixed sign is stronger than a cardinal sign. To see tge power of a sign, we see all parts of it.
cancer is not a powerful sign. loving, supportive, and caring, but not a leader and cannot stand against hardships for long periods of time. they are good workers and loyal, but not powerful. fixed signs are powerful signs, not cardinals.
I beg to differ. Can't speak for other Cancers but I am a true leader who can stand against any storm without out letting me emotions get the best of me. I work in hostile environment for many years where I have been lied on and harassed, in the end I'm still here doing my thing, while other co workers have quit on the spot.
Totally agree with you.
Not that I'm saying. Scorpio is the best but, one of the most strongest of all
Just because you as one cancer didn't quit doesn't make cancer a strong sign
What makes Cancer a strong sign. Ok its a cardinal and a water sign and ruled by Moon BUT its Ruling house is the Lower most House in the zodiac. So How??
Resilience and resistence. Although cancer may not appear strong they are in fact very tenacious, the most of the zodiac. They may not want frontal confrotation but their power resides in their capacity to protect secure nurture and mantain thus bringing this sense of power. their power come to the fullest when the crab feels that there is no escape. As a venus and mars cancer, i can relate to that

I was researching Attila the Hun and couldn't find a date of birth. He was described as arrogant, unpredictable, unstoppable, driven by sex, power, and money. Possessing an intense gaze. What sign best fits these characteristics?
Michael Riley (oneHOWTO editor)
Thats a great question Ase, we couldnt say for certain but its possible that he could have been born in June- Does this sound like it might be him? "What makes Cancer a powerful zodiac sign is their self-confidence, which helps them find everything they want and their perfectionism, that will allow them to create incredible things." Let us know what you think!
May be scorpion... It's suits that peraonality
cool breeze
Scorpio by far, powerful naturally strong and determined.
Yeah Scorpio you just describe me
If we see in the astrological charts, the most strongest are scorps,leo,caps and aries . Scorps have the power of mysterious and magnetic to influence others ,leo have charisma to attract crowds, caps have the power of ambition and determination to attend any goal while aries are fearless. Any one of them can be a Winner provided they use their positve qualities
I cool righ?
Bro I hate Scorpio I a Capricorn I think I could destroyed them because they will rage because I calm
