Leo

However Leo is not a cardinal sign and desire to be a leading force ( i.e. to be "cardinal") is as necessary for Alpha-female as for Alpha-male.
So this is more likely the more fitting portrait of an Alpha-female;

Aries
It could happen with any sign, however, I think it is most common with Leos. They can be both very attractive as well as dominant...VERY dominant. It's enough to overpower other females in a room sometimes by simply walking in.

LOL...My mother is a Leo. She is someone who people gravitate to, until they get her into a conversation that she might disagree with. Yes, she is very, very opinionated and gets extremely agitated. She does NOT like to be agreed with.

None. I don't believe this exists with females.

Not to go OT here or anything, but although I am actually an Aries, I certainly don't fit quite a huge bit of the description of an Aries in the link provided above!

I have been called an alpha female on several occasions by coworkers and friends. I've always thought of an alpha female as a woman who goes for what she wants regardless of obstacles (and I'm not talking about backstabbing, gossip or hurting others to get what she wants, but rather using actual skill and knowledge) and perhaps does things that are a bit out of the ordinary. I consider my best friend an alpha female, she's a lady welder, can hold her own with the boys but doesn't have a mean bone in her body. BUT, she is assertive and people listen to her. She doesn't let people boss her around, but knows when it's time to just calm down and go with others suggestions.

Most women thing being 'alpha' is just being bossy and mean...but that just makes you a bossy, mean person.

See, and that's why I don't consider her an alpha. For me, an alpha would have left his sorry butt the FIRST time it happened.

Eh, I know many people that if asked what his most memorable aspect would be, and it would be the cheating, and the way he handled the whole thing.

Maybe not where you are, but I know quite a few people that disagree.

One of my grandmas that has since passed was and my Sister is. "Step the hell off" is right. Nothing is even said. Other women are like kitties at the pound..."hiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssss".

I have no idea why other women are intimidated, scared, threatened and hissing at female Leos though? Pictures of Lions, Lion Facts
