Among the 12 signs of the zodiac , three of them are so called ‘power signs’. It’s about Leo, Scorpio and Capricorn.
Power signs doesn’t mean that these 3 signs are much more stronger and powerful than the others. It means that persons born under the influences of these signs are persons are in search for ‘power’. Being born under Leo-Scorpio-Capricorn influences means that you have in your chart personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or other elements (Ascendant,Midheaven) in those signs.
Now let’s discuss about ‘power’ and what I understand by this term. From my point of view ‘power’ means energy, either internal or external. Everything in this Univers , in this World is power , is energy. We are living – or at least we should live- in a equilibrium between the energy taken from the outside world and energy released. But very often we are having problems with maintaining this equilibrium and we become sooner or later ill (physical or emotionally). On a practical level by ‘power’ I understand knowledge, information, money, political power, need for control , sex etc. Basically it’s any form of energy that we deal with in our life. Power is not positive or negative…but how we are using it makes it good or bad. The power, the energy must flow continuously.
Those 3 signs mentioned before – Leo, Scorpio and Capricorn – are more prone to gain more power, more energy. But they are doing it for different reasons and motivations.
Leo – needs power for putting himself in a better position , for gaining recognition and a higher statute in society. The Leo person must shine and he must accept this role with care and wisdom. He/she should not block this energy or to abuse. It is well known that among the managers,leaders or persons with high exposure to public there are a lot of persons with Leo influences.
Scorpio – needs power to protect himself. Being a watery sign, fear is very present and active. The Scorpio feel the need to control others because his affraid of them. He thinks that is more likely to be cheated rather to have a positive relationship. The more he/she fears the more he/she tries to control. And at the first sign of problem it will explode. Scorpio is most powerful sign of the zodiac. But the problem is this extra-power. They often are having troubles in managing this immense energy. This way they are radically transforming everything around them.
Capricorn – needs for the power itself. He need to know that he is in control, that he have the ‘knowledge’. He doesn’t need to be in front line or to control others. The main problem is to make them stop….the Capricorns are in search for the absolute. They are searching the ultimate power , the source of all sources. That’s way they have troubles to stop from this permanent search. Another issue is how you as Capricorn are dealing with this ‘power’. Are you willing to share it or keep it for yourself? Keep it for your self it might slow your evolution and you have to come back to learn the share lesson.
This ‘power’ influences are very strong but subtile. And it can be masked by other elements and sometimes the person is not aware about this race for more power and energy. And as I said before ‘the power’ can take many forms…from food and sex to money and political ambitions.
