4 Brilliant Zodiac Signs With Mastermind Abilities

A mastermind is someone with an outstanding intellect — they’re not just smart, they’re genius-level smart. Masterminds are known for planning ingenious and complicated schemes or enterprises and getting other people to carry out their plans.

You have to have certain gifts and abilities to be a mastermind. Some of the qualities include being introverted to some degree, socially awkward, and hard to read. And with the power of astrology, the brilliant zodiac signs who tend to be masterminds may surprise you.

Masterminds love to develop intricate plans, but even more than the planning stage, they enjoy watching the plans take shape. They aren’t always working on the side of evil; that’s just the way they’re presented on television and in films.

Some work to better the world and to solve its problems. There is definitely more to these personalities than what meets the eye, so never assume you’ve got one all figured out.

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Masterminds tend to be perfectionists as they love to make plans and solve problems, and have extremely high I.Q.s. These qualities could easily describe a Virgo because they love to learn — and they want to learn everything.

Will they use their knowledge for good or evil? Well, that's entirely up to them. There are times when Virgos find social interaction invigorating and other times when they find it exhausting. Never assume that your Virgo friend is creating some kind of mastermind plan because they're more than capable of doing so.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius has all the makings of a mastermind. They love inventing things, planning, and coming up with ways to improve the world. In addition, they have some of the emotional components of a mastermind: difficulty dealing with other's emotions, coming off as cold and aloof, and being very unpredictable.

Did we say that they also tend to be brilliant, creative, and love to solve problems, especially the kinds of problems that others have tried and failed to solve? If an Aquarius jokes about their plan to take over the world, don't laugh it off; they may be serious.

3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are too fun to be masterminds? That's what they want you to think. Aries are extremely intelligent and creative, and if they get focused on something, there's no stopping them. This may be because they're comfortable with risk-taking and danger.

Aries can be arrogant and tend to believe they always know best. Like any mastermind, they don't like being told what to do or told they can't do something; that just makes them more determined to do it! Aries are very competitive and will stop at nothing to win, even if they have to coerce others into helping them.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios have a very focused attitude when it comes to getting something they want. They love coming up with plans and ways to achieve their goals. They can be manipulative enough to get others to carry out their plans.

Scorpios can sometimes be too honest and may spend a great deal of time in their head, plotting. A Scorpio may take an instant dislike to a stranger, but they adore their friends. Often, the language they are most proficient in is sarcasm. Scorpio, more than the rest, may seem too cool to be a mastermind, but appearances can fool you.
