Just like it has its weak spots, every star sign also has its strong points. Astrology can help you discover your hidden strength and your strong points, based on your star sign.
The star signs and their strong points
It is often said that some people are stronger than others. Naturally, these people are considered to have an advantage over others, since they are seen as more likely to attain the goals they set out to achieve and as more capable of persevering in the face of adversity and successfully dealing with the difficulties they encounter in life. The truth, however, is that strength can be defined in a variety of ways. Strength manifests itself in different ways depending on the individual. Our personal strong points may be more than one; they are our secret weapons and the means by which we can navigate everyday life more effectively and surmount the obstacles we are confronted with.
So, what are your strong points? Read on to find out all you need to know about your hidden strength, based on your star sign. The more you know about it, the easier it will be for you to fully take advantage of it when you are faced with a challenging situation. Learning about it will also help you find an inner balance and build more harmonious relationships with those around you.

ARIES: It’s time to move on
When a situation goes sour, your inner alarm goes off; you abandon ship and set sail for someplace else. When things are beyond repair, your star sign’s legendary determination helps you save valuable time and energy. Your whole life is ahead of you; there’s no reason to waste time on things that cannot be fixed. For an Aries, there is nowhere to go but forward. You sever the Gordian knots of the past and move on. You’d never allow yourself the option of staying behind and stagnating.
TAURUS: Those who persevere win
Taurus’ perseverance is admirable. Once you set your mind on achieving something, there’s no stopping you. You never give up, no matter how many obstacles you may face along the way. Your resolution remains intact at all times. When you slow down, it’s only so that you can recharge your batteries and come back stronger. Your desire to accomplish your goals, whether they concern your romantic life or your career, is your guiding star. And you won’t give up until you’ve reached every single one of them.
GEMINI: Don’t do it unless you really want to
As a Gemini, you love yourself enough to avoid doing things you don’t feel like doing. When you find yourself in an unpleasant or oppressive situation, you get out of it with the agility of a cat. If you’re cornered, you will use your diplomatic skills to escape and will then go on to do your own thing, either in secret or in broad daylight – it doesn’t make a difference to you. If a situation cannot be resolved in a way that is satisfactory to all parties involved, you don’t see why you should be the one left feeling dissatisfied – and you have the intelligence it takes to avoid that outcome.
CANCER: Cast your bread upon the waters
Cancer is a very sentimental star sign. As a Cancer, you always sympathise with other people’s struggles. You are willing to make sacrifices for the people you love and to offer your help to anyone who needs it. But what is most endearing about you is that you help others because you feel like it, and not because you expect a reward in return. Your generous, warm-hearted behaviour speaks of true strength – the strength to look beyond one’s personal interests and experience true compassion.
LEO: There’s strength in fear
When they come face-to-face with their fears, most people hesitate and try to avoid standing up to them. But that is not the case with Leo people. As a Leo, you refuse to be incapacitated by your fear – to let this irritating feeling take hold of you and to be defeated without putting up a fight. Not only will you not back down, but you will also proceed with such determination that you’ll win everyone’s admiration for your courage. Or for what comes off as courage, because in reality you’re not immune to the arrows of fear. You simply use it as a driving force that fills you with adrenaline – as a charger that gives you the energy you need to go after your goals.
VIRGO: Accept what you cannot change
Your flair for rationalisation goes hand in hand with a priceless gift: the ability to accept what cannot be changed. This has nothing to do with giving up; it has everything to do with making a realistic assessment of things – something Virgos are noted for. As a Virgo, you always try to move within the limits of what is feasible. The ability to accept what you cannot change gives you a sense of inner peace and balance, as you spare yourself the burden of what-ifs and don’t waste time or energy banging your head against brick walls. After all, when you choose to move forward, instead of pursuing false hopes, you stand a much better chance of discovering new opportunities.
LIBRA: Looking on the bright side
Libra’s imaginary world is inhabited by angels. Of course the real world is a far cry from that, but that doesn’t stop Libras from focusing on the good side of people. As a Libra, you approach others in a good-natured, affable manner and try to bring out the best in them. And that’s not because you are unable to see the world the way it really is, but simply because you choose not to dwell on the negative side of things. It is an enviable quality, and one that is largely inherent in you. And you know what they say: “We attract what we expect”.
SCORPIO: You have to fail in order to succeed
No-one likes to fail, especially if they are as ambitious as Scorpios are. As a Scorpio, you will settle for nothing less than the top. But at the same time, you have a most valuable quality: You don’t equate losing a battle with losing the war. And you are fully attuned to the fact that failure is the first step towards success, as it helps you learn from your mistakes. You’re self-confident enough not to let your failures get you down or make you doubt your skills. And more often than not, you are eventually rewarded for it.
SAGITTARIUS: Don’t think about it too much, just do it!
It is widely accepted that some things in life require a lot of thought and preparation. However, there are people who never feel ready enough to embark on a new endeavour and end up paralysed by hesitation. Luckily for you, you are not one of these people. As a Sagittarius, you pursue your goals with a vengeance. Unlike those who stay inert, overanalysing things and drowning in insecurity, you go after what you want without fear or hesitation. Sometimes, all it takes to succeed is to believe that you can, and Sagittarius is always armed with optimism and the conviction that everything will turn out well.
CAPRICORN: Leave your emotions out of it
Sometimes, being sentimental can be a disadvantage, and Capricorn is fully aware of that. This is not to say that Capricorns are heartless or insensitive; it simply means that they know when to put up boundaries between themselves and other people. As a Capricorn, you know when to take things personally and when not to. Instead of letting other people’s words and actions affect you, you simply ignore them and go on with your life. You only show your sensitive side to those who really deserve to see it.
AQUARIUS: Refusing to fit into other people’s moulds
Most people waste incredible amounts of energy trying to win the approval and acceptance of others. But that is not the case with Aquarians. As an Aquarius, you refuse to fit into other people’s moulds. You are totally comfortable with being different from the norm, and this eventually gets people to accept you for who you are. Thanks to your unconventional spirit, you’re charming and successful in life without compromising your integrity or your beliefs.
PISCES: I’m unique, is there a problem with that?
Most Pisces people stand out from the crowd. As a Pisces, you play up – and revel in – your uniqueness. You’re not willing to keep a low profile and to conform to those around you for the sake of fitting in. You’re comfortable with who you are and, even though you’re not provocative for the sake of being provocative, you refuse to censor yourself for fear of offending other people. After all, this is how you express your strength: simply by being the wonderful person you are.
