According to astrology, there are some zodiac signs that'll stop at nothing when it comes to securing a win.

The most competitive zodiac signs have a natural fierceness about them when it comes to establishing their strength and authority and asserting their dominance.

Even when they're not competing, these signs still have the ability to turn even the most boring or non-competitive situations into a competition.

I don't know if I would consider that a gift, necessarily, but these zodiac signs seem to think that there's nothing wrong with a little healthy competition.

Five most competitive zodiac signs

1. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you love being first in literally every single thing that you do in life, and the only way you know how to be first is by competing with others.

You might try to play it off as playful and not super serious, but when it comes to you, competition is always serious. You tend to be a sore loser and a very braggy winner.

All of that said, competition is how you keep your energy up. Being competitive gives you energy and meaning to your life, and you aren't one to deny yourself some fun in life.

While you do like to try to find competition in everything you do, you're really only ever seriously serious about it when it comes to things and situations that are important to you.

2. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, your love of competition comes from wanting to be the best of the best at work. You love the idea of getting ahead in your career through competition because you like the thought of having a good time while still showing everyone around you that you are the greatest.

When you do compete, you try to keep it lighthearted and fun because you don't want to be known as the person who can only crack a smile when she's beating everybody else down.

When it comes to your personal life, including your friends and family, you don't really have a competitive side. Unless you're just being playful, you don't really see the point in competing with people for fun.

You like to leave the competition to your professional life where you can really shine without worrying that you're going to hurt someone's feelings or be too competitive.

3. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, your love of competition goes hand-in-hand with your passion for life. You might not necessarily like competing with someone, but you do get very excited in certain situations and can't always control yourself.

Because you're a fire sign, you are very exuberant and thrive on the excitement that life brings. Sometimes, life brings competition, but you try to keep it playful no matter what. You might seem like a very intense zodiac sign, but in reality, you are a lot more sensitive and fun-loving than people give you credit for.

You would rather keep things lighthearted than possibly lose a friend because of hardcore competition. That said, if you are feeling competitive and not in a lighthearted way, then you're not one to show mercy to the people you are competing against.

4. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you love competition because it is your way of showing other people that you truly are the GOAT (greatest of all time). You like being the boss and you know that competing is the simplest way for you to win, which is the simplest way for you to prove to people that you aren't just talking crap when you say you're the best.

Plus, you like the thought of being the one people come to when they need help with something. And if that means having to beat them down a couple of times in competition, then so be it.

For you, competition is all about giving it your all and not showing any mercy. When you compete with people, your only thought is winning. Luckily for you, you are not that sore of a loser, even though you don't really like losing anyway (who does?).

But instead of getting upset over it, you know that all you need to do is keep competing until you win. When it comes to competition, you can turn into a completely different person; one who wants to win at all costs.

5. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are one of those competitors that like to keep the competition to themselves. That means that you might not readily admit that you like competition, but when you have a chance to compete against somebody and possibly win, you're all over it.

For you, competition is about proving to yourself that you are the best. You don't necessarily care about beating out the other person just so you can hold it over their head, but you do want to prove that you have it in you to compete.

Another thing that you don't always like to admit is that you can sometimes get very jealous of others. And even when there isn't an actual competition going on, you sometimes create a fake competition in your head just to see if you can get rid of that jealousy you're feeling.

It might not mean much to beat out a coworker on a project you're both working on, but to you, it means that you're able to push your limits and still achieve something meaningful.
