Leos are "naturally ambitious," according to Tara Redfield, a professional astrologer at Another Day Greener Lifestyle & Astrology. But their determination is truly fueled by their desire for attention and recognition when it comes to their accomplishments.

"Because of this, they work hard and persistently chase their dreams," Redfield explains.

They may take their time climbing up the ladder, but this lion will eventually find themselves on top, Maria Hayes, astrologer and founder of Trusted Astrology, adds.

"A Leo wants to prove to everyone that it can also do all things, from the smallest to the biggest," she says.

Practical Virgo may veer toward the quieter side when it comes to their demeanor. But don't let that fool you into thinking they're a passive sign, Raquel Rodriguez, a professional astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac, notes.

"These analytical souls, guided by the speedy planet Mercury, approach their goals with methodical precision," Rodriguez says. "Their sharp minds devise foolproof plans, and their high standards fuel their determination to achieve perfection."

As the first zodiac sign, Aries knows what it's like to be on top, and it will do whatever it needs to do to stay there. Ryan Marquardt, astrologer and founder of Ryan's Astrology, tells Best Life that people born under this sign "embody the spirit of a warrior, always ready for battle."

Aries are born with a natural determination and competitive nature that makes them unlikely to fold under pressure—instead viewing any obstacles as "stepping stones toward success," according to Marquardt.

"This sign tackles challenges head-on because they have built-in survival instincts and rarely second guess themselves," he adds.

The steadfast bull shows its determination best through its stability and reliability, according to Marquardt.

"Taurus is resolute in the face of a challenge, digging their heels into the earth like an unshakable tree in a storm," he says.

But you may not realize just how determined a Taurus is, because they are not the fastest sign—and they are hesitant when it comes to taking big risks, Marquardt notes.

"Instead, Taurus leans into their slow and steady pace, because it continuously ensures they complete the task at hand," he shares.

This sign also has an affinity for the finer things in life, so they are going to put in the work it takes to get the luxurious lifestyle they really want.

"Taurus are playing the long game and are willing to wait for a big payoff," Stina Garbis, astrologer and owner at Psychic Stina, says.

When it comes to determined, it's really a close call between Scorpios and the number one sign. The scorpion's sting doesn't just show its defensive side—it also "symbolizes its relentless drive" to tackle challenges, according to Rodriguez.

"Scorpios have a fierce resolve and a 'never give up' attitude, because Pluto's influence gives them an indomitable spirit that pushes them to overcome any challenge that comes their way," she explains.

"In simple terms, they're not ones to back down easily," Rodriguez adds.

But above all, most astrologers agree that Capricorns are the most determined zodiac sign. If they set a goal, they will achieve it no matter what, according to Garbis.

"They can get more done in a day than most people can in a year," she says. "I've always said if you want something done, give it to a Capricorn."

As an Earth sign, they also don't care how long it takes them to accomplish something. They'll still get it done.

"A Capricorn's ultimate goal in life is to reach the top of the mountain—they are symbolized by the mountain goat after all," Redfield says.

She adds, "They have an incredible understanding of commitment and patience and they put it to excellent use by climbing whatever professional ladder they're on."
