The alpha woman is one who sticks to her guns; she knows who she is and what she wants, and is a serious force to be reckoned with. That tingle you get right as soon as she walks into a room? Yeah, it’s the same tingle of electricity you get right before lightning strikes – it’s a sign that she can influence you, even without words.
Alpha women are usually very independent; they might like being a part of a squad, but they tend to continue to do things on their own. Alphas are outspoken, confident, and often extroverted. The beta woman is sweet, caring, and introverted.
She’s the one who prefers to be part of a team than go at something on her own. Betas tend to be more of the strong and silent types but will speak her mind and share her opinion when she feels like it’s important.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you are an alpha woman to your core. You power through life with your chin held high and a look of determination in your eyes, ready to kick butt and take names. While some people might find you a little intimidating (classic alpha behavior), they also can’t deny that your tough, go-get-‘em attitude (also classic alpha behavior) is incredibly inspiring.
Sure, you can often be aggressive and bossy, but that’s just because you know that you deserve the best in life – and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get the best. If any other zodiac sign needs alpha lessons, they should come to you.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you are a dominating, assertive alpha woman who loves being in charge. In fact, you rival Beyoncé as the ultimate queen bee! You know that there are people who there who look up to you and those that envy you, so you use your alpha status to show them who’s boss. As an alpha, you are most likely to show just how confident and serious you are by climbing the ladder to success in your career and your relationships.
Every new situation you’re in is an opportunity for you to shine. You’re confident, self-assured, and a natural-born leader. But even though there are times when you have to remind people that you’re the boss and you don’t play around, you’re ultimately an alpha for yourself, no one else.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, your alpha-woman status comes from needing total control. There’s no way you could ever stand by idly while someone else takes the lead. You are one of those people who not only fall into leadership roles naturally, but you also seek out any opportunities where you get to call the shots. Whether you’re applying to a new job or meeting a new potential partner, you prove right away what an important asset you are.
Another thing that makes you an alpha is that nothing scares you – not new and scary situations, not sudden changes, and certainly not people trying to tear you down. Once you realized just how much power you hold as an alpha, all of your fears and doubts went away.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
If it were socially-acceptable (except maybe now it is), you would get the word “ALPHA” in all caps tatted on your face, Scorpio. It’s not like anyone can forget it – what with your dominating personality, need for control, and love for confrontation when things don’t go your way – but you like to remind people who they’re dealing with. While your alpha status can be positive, it can also be negative for you.
When things don’t go your way, you tend to embody the negative alpha status quite a lot. You often butt heads with people you don’t agree with or dislike, but at the same time, you display positive alpha traits by being fiercely loyal and dedicated to the people you care about the most.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, you are the alpha woman that people can’t help but whisper about when you walk into a room. Not only are you a total badass, but you’re also a legend to betas AND fellow alphas. You may be controlling and a little cold (you prefer to use your brain over your heart to make decisions), but you know that you have to be tough to make things happen.
One of your most admirable alpha traits is how resilient you are. Life might get you down every so often, and you might fail at times, but you constantly pick yourself up and try again. You refuse to give up, and that determination proves that you can’t be messed with.
