Attention seeker. Hogging all the attention. Desperate for attention. “Oh, she’s just doing it for the attention.”

It would seem that this is quite a common thing, and somehow even though we all tend to cry out for attention in our ways, we scowl upon it as if needing attention is a bad thing, and the only thing that gets our goat more than the cry for attention is what happens when it gets what it needs: more attention.

If so and so does an unspeakable act to get negative attention, we are horrified, but when we notice how everyone is horrified, we get angry that so and so is getting the attention they wanted. We feel manipulated.

Still, people will be people, as revealed by our horoscopes, and being that we’re not all illuminated higher beings who need nothing more than to meditate 24/7, we will always twist the ways of the world so that the focus is on us.

Say for instance you’ve just been severed into bits in an accident. You’re dead, and it’s really a mess. Your mom gets on TV and makes it known to the world that her pain is so much worse than your mutilated death. That’s called an attention whore.

Whatever it is that’s going on, they bring the spotlight to themselves, use the info and manipulate it so that we all understand that they are an important player in whatever it is that’s going on — if not the most important player.

Some of us are a little bit hungrier for attention than others. It’s just in our makeup, astrologically speaking.

Depending upon what planets were hovering around in the cosmos at the time of our birth can certainly give us insight as to just how bad our need to be the center of attention really is. Ranked from most to least, here are the most desperate zodiac signs who crave attention.

1. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

As expected, Leo takes the number one position when it comes to grabbing center stage. And while this might come off as obnoxious, the good thing is that Leo usually knows what to do with the spotlight. They may be show-offs, but that’s because they’ve got the goods to back it up.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It’s to be expected with fire signs, as they simply won’t burn softly — they need space and attention that feeds their need to prove that they’re worthy. Rarely will the Sagittarius attention hog not feel the pressure of the attention they seek; they want the audience, and only because they know they have the ability to wow them. They only want credit where credit is due.

3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Of course. Still a positive force, Aries is a little less interested in claiming the world’s attention if they have to compromise themselves. It’s a sort of world domination kind of attention that Aries wants, a “my way or the highway” deal. They’ll scream and wail, and they will come through for you big time, but you’ll need to remember one fact: It’s all about them.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Unlike the fire signs before it, Scorpio too loves attention but is much less patient with who comes through it. A short attention span is an ironic twist for the Scorpio, as it seems these folks have very little tolerance for you unless you’re "doing it right." Piss off a Scorpio and you won’t have to wonder if they need attention or not because from you, they certainly do not.

5. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The celebs who shake their booties? Taurus. I don’t know what it is, but this zodiac sign makes up for the largest group of carnal show-offs imaginable. Maybe it’s a spiritual way for them to get in touch with the earth, but Taureans have a real exhibitionist quality about their attention-getting, and usually, if someone’s to strip down naked, Taurus is already in the buff.

6. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra doesn’t want the spotlight set too keenly on them, but if allowed to create a persona to hide behind, then bring that spotlight up close and personal, because this sign of the zodiac craves attention — but not for who they are, for what they create. Naturally creative, the Libra wants the kudos for being individual and special, and they will wow you with their originality.

7. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

This sign thinks they want attention, but in the long run, they really just want to be not noticed. Nonetheless, it’s human to crave attention, and so Pisces takes this trait out in public displays of unhappiness. The silent one in the corner playing passive-aggressive games — there’s your Pisces friend. Hogging the attention in the only way they know how.

8. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Also quite body-oriented, Cancer, when not paid attention to, will resort to sexual enticement as a way of getting what they need. They don’t require a lot of attention until the moment they decide they do, and if you don’t look their way, they’ll probably run around the house naked until you take notice.

9. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

In truth, they’d rather not be looked at; however, that doesn’t mean that they don’t come alive in your negative attention. Feel like protesting? Fighting the man? Arguing for the sake of argument, all because you need attention and you don’t know where to get it? Follow your friend Aquarius to the next political rally. They’re serving up attention — fresh, hot and agitated.

10. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Another to take a backseat to the spotlight, Virgo lingers on the outskirts waiting to grab the moment when they believe it’s theirs. Oftentimes, Virgo dwells on justice and vengeance and plays the role of shadow spy very well. No attention needed until the end, when they will spring out and tell you, “I told you so.”

11. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is not a hog. They let their work speak for themselves. They have a certain amount of confidence that allows any need for attention to cool according to whatever is going on. You won’t see Gemini interrupting your sentence; alas, you will see Gemini teach you a lesson, one that you may not have needed to learn. That’s where Gemini gets their attention, in rubbing you the wrong way.

12. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Secure in who they are and what they know themselves to be capable of, Capricorn is not in any kind of desperate need for any kind of attention. Until the moment they turn it all on, and then, you won’t be able to look away. Capricorn is the tax accountant by day and drag queen by night. When they want your attention, you’ll have no choice.
