The 4 Most Confident Zodiac Signs, According to An Astrologer

Some people find it easy to unapologetically assert themselves in the world without worrying about what others think. Whether you call it confidence, arrogance, or a strong sense of self, truly confident people won’t let your opinion of them slow them down.

Confidence comes in many flavors and personality types: but there are few qualities that all self-assured people seem to share. Confident people are known for having a strong sense of who they are outside of the influence of others. They’re good at recognizing their personal strengths and weaknesses–and know how to be resilient in the face of failure. And while it’s true that anyone can fake it until they make it, some zodiac signs are just born with that spirit of certainty.

Astrology is a great tool for self-discovery and learning about yourself. Your zodiac sign can show you a lot about your personality, including your confidence. These people know how to make decisions for themselves and look good doing it. But confidence isn’t something you can cultivate overnight: it takes time to build up a healthy ego.

If you've ever been curious about why being confident is so natural for some people and not so much for others, it might have something to do with astrology. "Looking to your Sun sign (which represents our ego) is a great start to empowering yourself—embracing and leaning into your natural strengths and being self-aware of your weaknesses to improve upon can be helpful," explains astrology expert and writer Lacey Ramburger.

People born under the sign of Aries are known for being bold, direct, and passionate in life. You’re somebody that knows what you want, and you’re not afraid to say so. “Aries need far less social reinforcement than other signs…[they] do not care much if others approve. This enables Aries to do the unprecedented, to pioneer,” writes astrologer Robert Hand in his book Horoscope Symbols. You don’t pay much attention to what other people say about you or your path in life. Not only are you the type to take charge in any situation–you really know how to utilize your strengths to maximize your results.

Mars rules Aries, the planet of action and passion, which means you’re your own biggest cheerleader. Your determination to succeed comes from a deep internal motivation–and you’ll stop at nothing until you reach your desired goal. "Aries is ruled by Mars, and this heavenly body is all about your assertiveness and how you approach your confidence. They coast through life with courage and practicality," astrology writer Brittany Beringer tells Parade. And while you’re not looking to impress anyone but yourself, your innovative and exciting way of doing things means you’ll attract plenty of fans along the way. Some people are trend followers, and others are trendsetters: and there’s no doubt that you’re leading the pack.

Most people mentally associate confidence and swagger with fire signs: but there’s something to be said about the calm, cool, and collected confidence that comes from an earth sign like Taurus. Taurus has a reputation for being the most stubborn zodiac sign of the bunch: but we think your sense of focus and determination actually stem from a healthy sense of confidence. That’s thanks in large part to your planetary ruler, Venus, which governs all things romance, beauty, money, manifesting, and allure. While others might crack under pressure or panic in the spotlight, you effortlessly carry yourself with an air of elegance and grace.

Nobody is doing it like you when it comes to displaying unshakeable confidence and nerves of steel. You trust your instincts and have confidence in your ability to make good decisions. “Taurus seldom worries or frets. It’s in their nature to be stoic and take things in stride, and nothing really alters this basic tendency,” writes astrologer Linda Goodman in her book Sun Signs. Your poker face is one of the best around, and even when you find yourself without a plan or path forward, you’ll never let another person see you sweat.

Leo has one of the biggest reputations in the zodiac, and you cause conversation everywhere you go. It’s not your fault: the spotlight just loves you. Leos are known for having a very regal and authoritative nature. You take pride in your achievements: and you’re the first to brag about your accomplishments. And it seems like no matter what you try your hand at, you find relative success in everything you do. “Leos are often robustly cheerful and may tend to enjoy showing off whenever there is an audience. They also have very fixed ideas that do not change easily with the times,” writes astrologer Sybil Leek in her book How To Be Your Own Astrologer.

Leo is the only zodiac sign ruled by the Sun, which illuminates all of this fire sign’s bold qualities. "The sun in astrology is our source of life, so it makes total sense that sun-ruled Leos are known to ooze confidence effortlessly," Beringer explains. However, because the Sun also governs the ego, it’s easy for you to overestimate your abilities or underestimate someone else’s, which is why failure feels personal. Luckily, you don’t let setbacks keep you from pursuing your passions. Your creative mind refuses to give up easily, and you’ll work at a problem for as long as it takes until you find an unconventional approach to getting what you want.

If you were born under the sign of Aquarius, it means you have an eccentric and expansive outlook on life and are secure in your skin. You’re not afraid to go against expected social conventions and challenge existing ideas. This rebellious and curious side of your personality is one of many reasons your confidence always shines through. Open-minded and always willing to adapt: Aquarius is known for being willing to embrace new ideas and perspectives. When things don’t go your way, you’re still confident you can spin the situation to work in your favor.

Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn, the planet of structure and discipline, and Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change. Together, these two planets give Aquarius the smarts and savvy to turn life's toughest challenges into new opportunities for success. In her book Saturn: A New Look At An Old Devil, astrologer Liz Greene explains that Saturn is connected with learning the difference between “...external values–those which we acquire from others–and internal values–those which we have worked to discover within ourselves.” And it’s this unique cosmic influence that gives you the courage to assert your ideas and innovations with others.
