6 Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Be Cult Leaders, According To Astrology

When we think of cult leaders, we automatically assume it's a bad thing. It isn't! It really depends on what the cult is about, but cults aren't always about killing yourself in a group of brainwashed people who are hellbent on reincarnating on Mars. There isn't always a cup of Koolaid to gulp down, nor is there necessarily an outfit to wear, though I suppose some do look forward to donning a uniform.

Basically, cults are formed around a charismatic personality or group of individuals who may offer another point of view. One might say veganism is a cult, as is The Rocky Horror Picture Show following. There might be a cult of yoga practitioners, and we're all very aware of the cult of Trump and their signature red MAGA hats.

But with all the individual personalities in astrology, who are the zodiac signs most likely to be cult leaders?

Being a cult leader comes with responsibilities: you have to lead your flock, whether your cause is noble or ridiculous. If you're the main figurehead and those who surround you are dedicated to you and your idealism, you're a cult leader. It takes a special kind of person to take on that kind of responsibility.

1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Of course the best cult leaders are Scorpio! They're dastardly, tricky, mysterious and alluring. Everyone wants to know what they're about. Sure, they come with that "sexy" vibe, which makes everyone assume they know everything about sex, and guess what? If they have a cult, it's most definitely sexual in nature.

It's all about the masks, the money, the robes, and the rituals over there in Eyes Wide Shut Scorpioland. The master of ceremonies, the one performing all the ritualistic sex acts with the newbies? That's our Scorpio!

2. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You will join Gemini's cult because they will imply that you are a total loser if you don't. In Gemini's cult, you do as you're told, even if it goes against your better nature. If you don't sign your life away, then be prepared to suffer the consequences.

Gemini has nothing to offer but fear, but you'd be surprised how many people prefer to live in fear than to live according to their own discretion. Besides, if you don't join the Cult of Gemini, you may get called a bad name on Twitter. How utterly scary!

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Fire sign Leo is everything that's needed when it comes to being a cult leader. They can change your mind, convince you to see anything their way, and they can make it all seem like fun. If they try to convince you to end your life and join them in the great Leo beyond, it's because they really do believe they can deliver this.

They are dangerous in this way, because as cult leaders, they go for the big one, meaning Koolaid and a quick trip to Heaven. Leo doesn't just lead — they lead into the fire.

4. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

If a big mouth is needed to make this cult thing happen, then you've come to the right place. Aries has got the nerve, the mouth and the outrageously dangerous ideas, and you are there to follow and obey.

A cult with an Aries leader is a cult that's going straight to hell in a hand basket. An Aries cult is a party of crazy people, and the crazier their faithful leader is, the more intense that party gets. Expect naked bodies, strict rules and a shot glass of red, red, red Koolaid.

5. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo's over-the-top perfectionism makes them the perfect cult leaders. Not particularly charming, Virgo doesn't rely on sweetness to attract their victims... ummm, cult members.

They put out a vibe of total disapproval and what happens is that this attracts those with little self-esteem. The Virgo cult is made up of people who like to be punished, put down and made to feel insignificant.

6. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Because of their natural eccentricity, Sagittarius rises to the top of the cult heap. They are charismatic, suave, intelligent and outrageous. Their ideas are so intense and their ideologies are so focused that it's hard to resist them when they recruit you — and recruit you they will.

They don't walk into thinking they're going to lead the way, but it doesn't take them long to realize they are the only one who can. Sagittarius is a leader by nature, and getting followers to walk into the great unknown with them is what they do best.
