An alpha personality is strong, assertive, and aggressive. They're determined, a leader in most areas of their life, and career-orientated. These individuals aren't afraid to get their hands dirty, and seek power and control.

Since astrology influences our personality traits, it’s not a big leap to think it would impact whether someone is an alpha, beta, or omega type of personality. And the alpha zodiac signs are proof of this.

If you’re somebody who does their best to avoid confrontation and conflict, you probably don’t have an alpha personality. It’s not that a beta personality isn’t strong, but they might not be overly assertive with demonstrating it.

When an alpha gets knocked down, they don't let it stop them. They get back up, brush themselves off, and keep going on. They're determined and refuse to quit when going after something they want.

The 6 Alpha Zodiac Signs In Astrology

1. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

List the traits of an alpha personality and you'll see how much they line up with the Capricorn personality. Both are ambitious, wise, determined, and strong.

Capricorns may sometimes seem a little cold, but that's because they're focusing on their endgame.

When Capricorn fails or they find themselves at a loss, they will pick themselves up and get back on track. If they feel discouraged, they may indulge in that "poor me" feeling for just a moment before they're back to business.

2. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are alpha all the way. If they want something, they don't let anyone or anything get in their way.

Aries are courageous, brave, and determined. Some may find them assertive to the extreme, but they don't care what anyone thinks.

A focused Aries can be both intimidating and inspiring. This zodiac sign isn't ever going to settle for less; they'll just work a little harder.

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

You can't be a leader if you don't have an alpha personality, and Leos are leaders. People admire Leos for the clarity of their vision, their optimism, and how willing they are to help other people.

They are always the center of attention in any group, and it's their charisma and drive that brings people together.

Leos are honest even when the truth may cause pain or will go against the popular opinion, which makes them brave idealists.

4. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios can out-alpha almost anyone. They're strong, intense, and have a very domineering personality.

Scorpios like to be in charge, and if that's impossible, they'll aggressively make it happen.

"No" isn't a word that has any power over Scorpio, except to make them work harder to get whatever they were told they couldn't have. They don't shy away from conflict and confrontation; they thrive on it and it energizes them.

5. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Do you know the phrase "knowledge is power"? Well, Virgos tend to know a lot, and it's their knowledge that gives them strength and confidence.

Virgos don't have time for fear, so they don't recognize it. They do what they need to do, even if that means getting their hands dirty or angering other people.

They are confident in their beliefs and will not crumble when someone tries to take them down. Like any alpha, Virgos like to be in control of everything.

6. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians live their own lives, and even if other people don't understand, they will still follow their own path. People may trash-talk Aquarius and question their choices, but they stay true to themselves.

Aquarius don't care if they're different; they want to stand out and be unique.

Aquarius has self-respect and dignity, and won't compromise to make other people feel more comfortable. This zodiac sign loves people, but they're independent enough to go solo on their journey if that's what it requires.
