Humans have always looked to their zodiac signs for guidance, whether that’s expansive horoscope predictions or knowledge of which other signs they’re compatible with. When it comes to world matters, though, we often look to the stars to answer the serious questions. Will a globe-spanning pandemic happen? Who will become the next president? While meaningful information might be hard to come by, one thing is certain: astrology can tell us which zodiac sign is most likely to become the leader of the free world.

The Argument For an Earth Sign
When looking to the stars to determine which sign would make the perfect presidential candidate, one might first look to the most grounded of all: the earth signs. Earth signs are reliable and practical, and those qualities are key for any leader.

Taurus is one of the zodiac signs ruled by Venus, so those who are born between April 20th and May 20th have a strong desire for peace and harmony. This zodiac makes great decisions from both their heart and head, and are goal-oriented, independent and determined – all traits of a successful leader. If nominated for the highest office, a Taurus would almost certainly be a go-getter, never giving up on a pursuit despite obstacles or criticism.

Another earth sign in the running is Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd). Often called the ‘Virgin’, Virgo is known to be methodical, analytical, and highly organized, making them excellent strategists who strive to serve their country honestly. Virgo’s sharp inquisitiveness and detail-oriented approach allows them to sort through facts and make sound decisions based on the best course for their constituents.

A defining characteristic of a Capricorn is their hardworking nature and ambition. Ruled by Saturn and born between December 21st and January 19th, Capricorns are level-headed and, like many of their earth sign counterparts, will be goal-oriented and prepared towards taking on the Presidency of the United States. They’re also often seen as candid and straight-talking, qualities most Americans look for in a leader.

The Argument For a Fire Sign
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) represent passion and enthusiasm, and would bring energy and enthusiasm to the White House. Fire signs can be impulsive and aggressive, traits that could be seen as positive when it comes to making decisions, especially on the world-stage.

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, is born between March 21st and April 19th: a time of year when the sun quickly heats up the earth, and that same heat and life-giving energy runs through the veins of an Aries. Aries are dynamic and passionate, so a political career as the leader of the United States is a fitting place for this zodiac sign.

Making up the second sign of the zodiac is Leo, ruled by the sun. They are charismatic and courageous and have the ability to engage people and make them commit to an idea. Leo’s dynamic personality and natural leadership skills make them well-suited to the Oval Office.

Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st) are born into this world energetic and dynamic. They also know how to get the job done and live their life with purpose. Sagittarius embodies the qualities many people are looking for in a leader, especially when it comes to international relations and foreign policy.

The Argument For an Air Sign
Unlike the others, the air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are the most diplomatic and social authority of the zodiac, meaning the United States would be in good hands with any of them at its head.

Many people are drawn towards Gemini (May 21st – June 20th) because of their intellectual charm – they love exploring ideas, gaining knowledge, and solving problems. This makes them great decision-makers, even if their decisions are based on emotion. Gemini is an expert communicator and excels when it comes to delivering an address.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd) represent justice, so it makes sense that a Libra would make a great President. They are great at resolving disputes, and have a knack for finding equilibrium and peace. They are reassuring and diplomatic and can read people easily.

Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th) are keenly observant and intellectually driven. They are often eccentric but never arrogant, and can make decisions quickly and efficiently. Aquarius have their own set of morals and values developed from a mental understanding of the world, and are always looking for ways to expand their knowledge and create a better future.

There are many different aspects of the zodiac to consider when determining which sign is most likely to become the leader of the United States of America. While no single sign being able to live up to the expectations, the Earth sign Taurus, the Fire sign Aries, and the Air sign Gemini all possess qualities that could lead them to the Oval Office. No matter which sign is ultimately chosen, astrology can give us an insight into the qualities they’ll need to possess to perform the tough job of the President of the United States.
