Who is stronger: Princess Luna or Princess Celestia?

Not an easy question.  Luna's skills seem to fall under illusions and evocations.  Celestia favors transmutation and conjuration.  Not stronger, just different.

Celestia is currently far stronger and can put her in the moon. Lunas still young and i think that she'll grow equal/more powerful(yes more powerful) than celestia.

 

in my headcanon if luna grows up she'll have the responsibility of the sun and moon.

Luna as Nightmare moon was able to defeat Celestia in raw power 1 vs 1 with the latter being required to use the elements to defeat NMM and even then it was fairly close. 

 

Now the question is, can she tap into that much power without the transformation?  Plus how much stronger has Celestia gotten over the past 1,000 years where Luna was trapped on the moon?

 

It is not purely by height because Luna was always less tall than Celestia even in the past scenes.

I have them being near equals with Celestia having a slight advantage power wise but Luna having more varied spells. In a fight, Celestia would win because she keeps a cool head unlike Luna who will fly into a blind rage at the tip of a hat. If they were humanized, they'd be cross countering, though Celestia would be getting tired less easily

But Celestia needed the Elements of Harmony to do that.  Granted, this does not prove that Luna is more powerful.  She was powered up with the Nightmare Forces and Celestia refused to fight her.  The scene really doesn't prove anything on way or the other.

 

You'd think Luna would be stronger, since Celestia only raises one star, while Luna raises over 100 thousand million stars plus the moon every night. xD

Luna does not raise the stars, only the moon.  Stars are not visible in the day because the sun outshines them.

Celestia would be stronger by virtue that she's older, Luna needed the forces of Nightmare to be able to beat her and even then Celestia refused to fight her, and Luna was entrapped and sealed inside the Moon being unable to do anything seemingly while Celestia had 1000 years to hone her skills in magic. Even then, the gap is likely small as Luna was able to move the Sun with great difficulty in the comics suggesting she's around if not slightly weaker than Celestia.

I think celestial has more power but what she has isn't super intense. Luna has less power but what she does have is more powerful. Luna's jealousy got her possessed, good or bad that's some strong magic.

Some people would say Celestia because she banished Luna to the moon, but she couldn't do that without the elements of harmony. So without the elements I think they are both equally matched but have their own set of unique skills. For example, Luna an walk through and control dreamscapes while Celestia (as far as we know) can not.

I really would like to say Luna. Little sister is not so little anymore. Celestia most likely is stronger, but look at Celestia's track record, it's not that good. Her own sister beat her. Chrysalis beat her and she couldn't handle Discord without the elements of harmony and needed Luna's help.

To be fair to Celestia, Luna received a power boost from the forces of Nightmare and she didn't wanted to fight her little sister, Chrysalis had spent who knows how long draining the power of love from Shining Armor and Cadence, which they've noted was the strongest magic in Equestria, and Discord is the most powerful being in the FIM verse without needing aid thus far.

 

Also, Luna's track record isn't better herself for her defeat over Celestia was done by Nightmare Moon, not her, she wasn't anywhere when she was needed at the Canterlot wedding, and the whole Nightmare Rarity arc can be declared as an arc that was very embarrasing for Luna as she was getting trounced and humiliated by Nightmare Rarity throughout the whole arc till she had aid from the element bearers and others to beat her.

 

Rant over
