Is there any quicker way to bond with a new bestie than by diving deep into their astrological profile? We’re not sure there is. Even if you don’t know sh*t about the signs of the zodiac, you probably know AT LEAST your sun sign and what people have to say about it. Maybe you’ve been a victim of the “Oooooh, I do NOT get along with [insert sign here].” Maybe you always hear “Omg, I LOVE that sign!” Either way, knowing your sign and what it’s all about is an easy way to get a convo going with a new friend, coworker, or even a stranger!

But the truth is, no matter what reaction people have to your sign, every single sign has its strengths and weaknesses. And, did you know each sign has their own unique superpowers, too? These superpowers can affect your life in MAJOR ways. That’s why today, we’re sharing a round-up of strategies that will help unlock your zodiac powers. Check your sun, moon, and rising sign for the full scoop!

How to Unlock Your Zodiac Powers

How to Unlock Your Zodiac Powers


Those with the zodiac sign Aries are ruled by Mars, a planet associated with competition and the desire to win. If you’re an Aries, you’re probably like “YUP, that checks out!” Aries tend to be passionate, brave, and self-assured. They are generally natural-born leaders who enjoy a good challenge.

But that’s not all there is to Aries. Mars is also associated with activity, as in wanting things to happen QUICKLY. As a result, Aries may lack patience and have a tendency to be impulsive. If you know an Aries, you may think of them as hotheaded. They stay true to their elements in this way, as Aries are fire signs. (The fire signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.) 

So what are Aries’s powers? 

One: Aries tend to be super efficient. Because they want things to happen quickly, they get things done quickly, too. Their bravery assists them in this area as well, because they’re never afraid to kick off a project. Two: Aries are very self-reliant. They feel confident in themselves and don’t need others to show them what’s up. 

To unlock their zodiac powers, Aries needs only to invest in them. Finding work they find challenging is crucial to expanding Aries’ power of efficiency and self-reliance. They have to feel like there is something to WIN to succeed. 

Some ways to unlock this power: running a marathon, heading striking out on a solo adventure, hiking a difficult trail, and going for a big promotion. All of these activities can unlock Aries’ drive to succeed, and succeed quickly. 


Taurus is an earth sign, so you will find that Taurus natives are grounded, consistent, and determined. Their consistency leads to a high level of dependability and loyalty that makes a Taurus a great bestie. They are slow to move, preferring to take their time considering all options before making a decision. This generally works out positively for them—because of their deep consideration, they usually make the right choice.

As for weaknesses, the zodiac sign Taurus can be quite resistant to change. They may take a while to make a big decision. They can also be quite stubborn and narrow-minded. But, that’s okay! This episode of Looking Up should help out all our Taurus besties! 

To unlock Taurus’s superpowers, Taurus should get in touch with their tactile side. Practicing grounding activities like walking outside barefoot, gardening, practicing meditation, or creative arts are all good ways for Taurus to strengthen their concentration and their connection with the earth. This, in turn, helps them stay grounded so they can continue to make good decisions. Learn more about this in the episode of The Balanced Blonde: Soul on Fire called Unveiling Tarot, Astrology, Gene Keys, & Universal Wisdom Through Art! It’s one of our fave episodes!


Geminis THRIVE in social settings. We’re talking life-of-the-party vibes. As an air sign, Geminis love communicating with others, and they’re super adaptable as people. (The air signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.) Because of this, they tend to make a LOT of friends. They are generally curious, creative people.

On the flip side, Geminis can often be seen as two-faced. This is because their versatility and adaptability in relationships may lead them to speak or behave in ways that are contradictory to themselves. They may (intentionally or unintentionally) be misleading with others at times.

To unlock Gemini’s superpowers, Geminis should try LOTS of new things. Their adaptability means they can welcome new experiences with open arms, and learn life’s lessons from them quickly. Geminis should also invest in their communication skills like writing, verbal communication, and active listening. Journaling their thoughts is a good way for Gemini to practice putting their thoughts into words! 


Cancer is known for being nurturing, caring, and sensitive. They are often healers or providers of support. They love being able to help others, especially when they can see someone’s condition or mood improve. Think of Cancer as your mom friend!

Cancer can take their strengths too far, though. When they do, Cancers can be suffocating to their loved ones or people they are trying to help. They may come across as overbearing, emotional, or irrational. 

To unlock Cancer’s superpowers, Cancer should invest in their innate abilities for healing. They would benefit from joining a cause that gives them a place to channel their love and support, like volunteering for a nonprofit they are passionate about. They should also direct some of that healing energy inward, to ensure they are taking care of themselves. After all, it’s self-care or burnout


Leos are natural-born leaders who love being the center of attention. This may sound negative, but someone’s got to take center stage, and Leos were born to do it! Leos thrive when they are able to help others by leading them to what is right, use their charisma to get what they want, and protect others who cannot protect themselves.

On the other hand, Leos can be quite prideful when it comes to accepting help. Because they see themselves as strong leaders, they want to be able to do things on their own. They may be stubborn about doing things “their way” or doing them alone. They struggle when they are not in control of a situation.

To unlock Leo’s superpowers, Leos should seek out leadership positions or opportunities that will put them in control of different situations. This will allow them to really shine using their leadership talent. In addition, Leos should find friends they feel comfortable accepting help and criticism from. These friends will be crucial in keeping Leos firmly in the zone of leadership, rather than letting them become egotistical and bossy. Everyone loves a boss-*ss bitch, but no one likes a bossy one!


Virgos are known for being perfectionists. They have an eye for detail that lends them toward stability and success. They are the kings and queens of working smarter, not harder, as they will find ways to make their routines not only consistent, but maximize their potential.

If you love a Virgo, you probably wish they were a little less hard on themselves. They say if you aim for the moon, you’ll land among the stars—but Virgo will still be beating themselves up for not reaching the moon. They can be highly critical of both themselves and others in their quest for perfection.

Virgo’s superpowers lie in their eye for detail. To unlock their superpowers, Virgos should invest their time in hobbies and careers that take what is already great and maximize it to its fullest potential. They are best suited to positions as editors, auditors, inspectors, or investigators. They may also succeed in positions that allow them to organize systems or people.

Libras are alllllllll about balance. You’ll find Libras prefer to keep the peace over confronting someone. They want the best for everyone, and they believe the best for everyone happens when everyone’s in harmony. They’re often seen as sweet, charming, and loving.

Libra’s weakness lies in their desire for harmony, too, though. Libras can be passive and prefer to keep the atmosphere chill rather than confronting problems head on. They may become frustrated or upset when others want to address negativity head-on, especially if the situation doesn’t have a peaceful resolution.

To unlock a Libra’s superpowers, Libras should work in roles that allow them to cater to both sides, such as hospitality roles or hosting guests. In fact, Libras may make good podcasters as they thrive in leaving space for other people’s stories and opinions! Lastly, Libras should make time for meditation when they need to make a decision, as this will give them clarity of mind to see what is right for them. Light a candle, take some deep breaths, and make that call, bestie! 


Scorpios are known for being charismatic, mysterious, and extremely intuitive. They understand people on a subconscious level, but tend to keep their understanding to themselves. Scorpio is not afraid of a little darkness, so they may have and share experiences that cause others to back away quickly. Wanna know what this sign looks like in the wild? Listen to the episode of Almost Adulting about Violet Benson’s “Scorpio Birthday Shenanigans.”

Scorpios can also be quite secretive and a bit manipulative. Due to their intense understanding of other people, Scorpios have a natural influence over others, which they may use for their own benefit. Their intense emotions may also lead to possessiveness and jealousy. 

To unlock Scorpio’s superpowers, Scorpios should connect with water. As a water sign, meditating near water sources can strengthen their intuitive abilities. (The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.) Scorpios should be sure to trust their intuition frequently, but only for good, as this will keep them in positive karmic alignment. 


Sagittarians LOVE adventure. They are always seeking out the next big journey. They want to know more, learn more, and do more. Sagittarians have an open mind that can help them make friends across many different cultures. 

Conversely, Sagittarians may be hard to pin down. They may fear commitment, as it means staying in one place or doing one thing for too long. To unlock Sagittarius’s superpowers, a Sagittarius should go on those big adventures! What’s best for a Sagittarius is to forge their own creative path, one that allows them to learn as much as possible so they can share it with the world. Sagittarians can be a powerful uniting force when they use their powers.  


Capricorn personality traits include practicality, subtle perfectionism, and a good work ethic. As earth signs, Capricorns tend to be grounded in logic and reality. (The earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.) They stick to their guns when challenged, as they are so confident about their ideas and opinions.

Capricorns can also seem a bit arrogant and egotistical because they are so self-reliant on their own thoughts and opinions. Like Virgos, their perfectionism can lead to the wrong impression. Capricorns are often seen as “know-it-alls.”

To unlock a Capricorn’s superpowers, Capricorns should invest in their diligence and discipline. Capricorns truly love working, but they would benefit from meditating on what work is most important to them so they don’t over-commit. Once they know what they want, the best thing for a Capricorn is to put their nose to the grindstone and get to working—this will help them realize their full potential. When it’s time for a break, Capricorns recharge best by spending time outdoors, grounding themselves with the earth. 


Aquarians reside in the balance between routine and flexibility. They are at their best when they are able to challenge the status quo and change the way things are done. They think outside of the box by first learning what’s inside the box—then, they are easily able to see what needs to change.

Aquarians may move more quickly than others are comfortable with, and they may not thoroughly explain their plans before expecting others to get moving. They may also push and push for perfection, which is not attainable.

Aquarians would benefit from being part of an organization that is always pushing for change and for things to be better. They thrive when they are able to push for what’s best for everyone around them, even when others can’t see it. They would benefit from a friend who can help them stay grounded in what is attainable. 


Pisces are known for being empathetic, compassionate, intuitive, and imaginative. They are often called “the dreamer” of the zodiac, and they can be quite sensitive. 

This sensitivity can lend to their weaknesses as well. Because of their intense empathy, Pisces can often feel stuck in the emotions and insecurities of others. They are highly sensitive, which may frustrate or annoy other signs. 

To unlock a Pisces’s superpowers, Pisces should protect their aura as much as possible. This will take setting boundaries and cleaning their aura frequently. This will help them to remain empathetic and compassionate without getting stuck.
