Lead With The Stars

By MWB Desk

Your leadership style, based on your Zodiac sign

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

This feisty and assertive fire sign is the first to launch a bold proposal or kick off a new project that most people might be scared to start (will they complete it, though? The jury is out on that one). They will be the ones fearlessly leading the charge and mobilizing others to action. Word of advice? Just be sure to give others a chance to catch up, because there’s no ‘I’ in ‘teamwork’

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Taureans are grounded, warm, and strong-willed without ego. They make steady and reliable leaders, likely to serve as coach and confidante. This operationally-minded and practical star sign loves a clear to-do list, and their stability provides a solid foundation for everyone’s success. They have a great work ethic and can keep going when others give up, but there’s a danger of remaining committed on principle alone to something that’s not working

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

Chatty and curious Geminis are more team player than commanding authority. They often function as the sounding board – the approachable positive influence others may turn to and hash out their questions and challenges. They thrive in environments that serve a brainy and expressive personality. As leaders, the biggest challenge they face is in curbing their natural curiosity and focusing on the group goal.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

More than any other sign, Cancerians lead with the heart. They guide others by nurturing them with warmth, empathy, almost parental instincts, fostering a supportive environment for collective growth. The setback for this sign is that their outsize need to be stoic can cause themselves to bottle up stress.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Charisma is the key strategy for a Leo leader. They’re most at home in the spotlight, their radiant individuality enabling their influence. They make fun and impressive leaders…as long as they remember to let others speak up too.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgos love structure and systems and can keep the gears of an organization turning smoothly and consistently, and one can always count on their sheer drive. What might work against them is if they forget that most people aren’t capable of meeting the perfectionist standards set by this detail-oriented sign.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Libras are natural diplomats who tend to cultivate a sense of harmony among a larger group, their creative edges allowing them to connect and uplift others around them. In moderation this is fantastic – if their craving for total accord doesn’t become pandering and lead to indecision.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

The demanding and determined passion of a Scorpio goes hand in hand with a deep and probing intuition, and this potent blend that fuels their adeptness at driving communal transformation. Cool under pressure, they’re the leaders to steer one out of stormy waters, as long as they can keep the sting out of their criticism.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

The Sagittarius leader gets their edge from an unequivocally adventurous spirit. They have a feisty influence capable of bridging diverse cultures and perspectives. While their enthusiasm may inspire courage, the Saggi needs to temper their ‘go, get em’ attitude with patience, or risk burning out good people.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

The zodiac’s most natural fit for a traditional leadership role, the Capricorn has patience, discipline, and ambition. They truly feel and function their best with hard work and responsibility and approach all leadership roles with easeful authority. The catch? If unchecked, these very qualities can become domineering.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

An insightful Aquarian at once prizes personal freedom and harbors a fervent commitment to the well-being of the greater collective. An intellectual maverick, this sign effortlessly creates and embraces fresh perspectives, quirky concepts, and modern technologies, making them the perfect leader in the tech industry. Cons include being too ‘out there’ and losing the team through miscommunication.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

This gentle, dreamy sign might not be the most obvious fit for a standard role as el jefe, but their sensitivity is a superpower. Floating seamlessly from solid reality to fluid introspection, they are able to display an uncanny empathy that allows them to lead with kindness. Getting stuck in a dreamscape, either their own, or of those around them, is the biggest challenge they’ll have to navigate.
