Zodiac

In this life, there are followers and there are leaders, and one cannot exist without the other. What makes a person a leader? What makes another a follower? We tend to think of the followers as unable to lead, weak, and most definitely weaker than a leader. We think of leaders as invulnerable, strong, able to direct the mob to new directions.

Leaders have charm, charisma, and allure, while followers have steadiness, loyalty, and faith. It takes all kinds to make a world, and some stand tall as beacons in order to guide others, while some look to the beacons for a sense of who they are.

And, in the same vein, there are cult leaders and cult members. Like many things in life, astrology is a great indicator of our personality traits, and when it comes to being a cult member, there are certain zodiac signs who are most likely to join a cult.

Cults are not always the kind that ask their members to drink Koolaid and die. No, sometimes a cult is theatrical, or helpful, or technological. People might argue that Alcoholics Anonymous is a cult, and that its members are brainwashed fools who are forced to relinquish any notion of personal power so they can give it up to a "higher power."

One might see this as helpful, while another might perceive this group as a bunch of rabid cult members who, year after year, must continue to chant the same mantra "I am an alcoholic" decades after they've had their last drink. Helpful to some, negatively reinforced to another.

Some people are naturally inclined to be in the cult mindset; they need guidance, they lack the drive to think on their own, and they desperately need to be a part of something larger than they are. Cult members who join larger organizations are looking to be herded, and it stems from deep feelings of self-hate and lack of confidence.

1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're a bit neurotic when it comes to processing what others think about you, and if left to your own devices, you'd rather not be noticed at all. Which makes you a fantastic candidate for some mind-controlling cult leader to take over your brain.

You love to be a part of something that others call "cool," and if anyone ever accuses you of being uncool, you'd be morally destroyed. You need a group to support your interests, otherwise, you won't be interested in anything. You'd join a cult just to appear cool... as if that's a thing that makes a person "cool."

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

While you're studying to be a cult leader, you'll find your better position is as cult member. The dominant, fiery personality is good for just so much, but the truth of you, Scorpio, is that you're tired of being the boss all the time, and given the opportunity, you dream of simply being someone's submissive little toy.

Contrary to popular belief, if you're told what to do. You do it, with pleasure, because the reality is, you're a total cult member.

3. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Because you find it so difficult to decide on just about anything, you look to others to point the way. You'd rather do what a large group of people have agreed to do than make up your mind on a subject.

You have natural herd mentality, and even though you can be quite a difficult person at times, you forfeit your difficult behavior to get in line with the ways of others. You are the typical cult member: always giving up your mind to a "higher power."

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If it's organized, you're in. You love the idea of organization and you will agree to just about anything if you sense there are others in the group who think like you.

You're not the average cult follower type, but when you find what makes sense to you, you tend to shut out everything and everyone else, making you the number one cult member of the day.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You like being a cult member because you like being social. This is cool until you realize that the group you've just joined is very strict and wants you to do certain unsavory acts. Afraid to buck the system, you comply, because you are too afraid to stand up for yourself.

Lack of self-esteem makes you into the perfect follower. You follow blindly and you do whatever you're told.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

If only you could convince someone that you are worthy... this is an ongoing plight for you, Aquarius. You just want someone to believe you — to believe IN you — and when that doesn't happen due to your inability to convince people of anything, you turn to whomever is the stronger party and follow them.

You follow and submit to groups, cults, organizations and the like because you need to suck on to something that will accept you. Much like a parasite, you need a host. Might as well be in a cult than out there in the big, scary world all by your lonesome.
