Zodiac Signs Who Are Seriously Obsessive, Ranked From Most To Least

Why are you so obsessed with me? — Regina George

Mariah Carey sang it best when she talked about a person who was just plain obsessed with her.

Now, some of us may wish to have that problem — you know, the problem when someone loves you so much you're all they think about. But others cringe at the thought of being obsessed over and would much rather be their own biggest fan.

Obsession isn't always creepy or possessive. It can simply be an extreme fascination with someone or something. Think about celebrities, sports stars, or anyone that you had a strong fascination about.


Perhaps you had a Michael Jordan poster above your bed that you looked at before every basketball practice. That poster acted as inspiration and, in turn, you worshipped MJ as your motivator. Maybe you want to pursue singing and Kelly Clarkson is your actual idol. You may buy every ticket, backstage pass, and album because you idolize her career and want similar success.

Or, maybe you just have notebooks full of hearts and doodles with one of the Hemsworth brothers names all over it. You weren't necessarily in love with those people (even though maybe you thought you were at one time) but it was probably just an obsessive admiration.

People aren't the only thing that can be obsessed over. Ask any pro-athlete what their life is about and they will say their sport. Ask any chef what their favorite pastime is and most likely it will have to do with food. Ask any aspiring lawyer studying for the LSAT what their plans are for the next few months and they will probably reply with a response having to do with books and studying.

Our lives can be consumed by anything or anyone, we just have to make sure what we get obsessed with is healthy. Looking at your zodiac sign's personality can help determine how obsessive (or not) you truly are.

The Most Obsessive Zodiac Signs In Astrology, Ranked From Most To Least

1. Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

Scorpios are the most obsessive sign of the Zodiac. They are so passionate, territorial, and protective that it's almost impossible for them not to be.


When they become obsessed with something or someone, it completely takes over their mind; they want to live to breathe and eat whatever it is they now love so much. When they become that invested, they have a drive that others do not possess and their tenacity is amazing.

Although, Scorpios have to be careful not to get too enthralled too soon because when they are scorned they become crazy vindictive.

2. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are extremely relationship-oriented. When they become obsessed with anyone, it is not in a possessive way.

When Cancer comes across as controlling, it's more in an "I love you so much I just can't even imagine my life without you" sort of obsession. They are in touch with their emotions. They know what they want and are not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve.


Cancers need to be vigilant because there are some people that take advantage of this, but their internal voice is strong and, ultimately, they tend to follow their gut.

3. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taureans are grounded but a bit closed-minded. When Taurus becomes obsessed with someone or something, they are way too stubborn to give up on getting it. It is almost like they have blinders on, blocking anything else out in the world.

They will not get distracted when they are pursuing something. They are down to earth, but being obsessive is the closest they get to ever being emotionally charged.

Taurus obsesses because they know what they deserve and they do not let any roadblocks hinder that.

4. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are free spirits. Having that much freedom and imagination in their own minds allows them to tap into their emotions a bit more than others.

They become obsessive when they find creative and emotional stimulation from a person or a passion. Pisces are in tune with the arts and end up mainly becoming obsessive with subjects in that field.

They are never afraid to be who they truly are at any time, so they will not hold back ever. They speak their mind, and if they are obsessed with something they don't care who knows it.


5. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras never want to be alone. They can become obsessed with the idea of always having someone by their side, whether it's romantic or more friend-oriented. They need entertainment for most of the day if they want to feel satisfied.

Libras will seem persistent when they want something because when they do get even a little obsessed, it takes over their mind. However, it doesn't last very long.

They will move on to the "next shiny thing" if something better or more interesting comes along.

6. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are extremely passionate. Their passion can turn into an obsession (but not that easily).


They can be persuaded and sometimes fall into an obsessive state of mind, but mainly they are constantly on the move and do not like repetition, so there is a strong chance they will not stay obsessed for long.

When it comes to competition, however, they become completely enthralled with winning and how they can assure that for themselves. Being fiercely competitive is the most obsessive side they will show for sure.

7. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are extremely self-confident. They are very much self-motivators and do not need anyone to compliment them or give them too much praise — they do it themselves most of the time.

They are not narcissistic and selfish, but they do tend to choose what's best for them over others. They can be a bit obsessive but it has to do with things internally and not externally.


They are prideful and will not want anything to damage the strong image they have of themselves. Their confidence is impressive and they know that, so they do not want to lose it.

8. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are persistent with a capital P. They work so hard and always are trying to achieve more success. This can turn into an obsession, but Virgos are able to multitask and not get too stuck on one idea.

They know how strong and tenacious they are deep down, so they do not feel the need to become completely obsessed with something because they know that when the time comes they will get the job done. And get it done well, too.

And in relationships, Virgos are completely not obsessive. In fact, they are quite the opposite, actually being very cautious.

9. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are responsible and structured. Being obsessive just isn't in their nature. Determination is, but they are good at separating the two.

They enjoy being focused on something, whether it be a passion or a person, but they don't get so enthralled where it gets to the point of obsession. They are strict with themselves and this leaves no room for getting off track with what needs to be done.

Capricorns can become very in tune with a specific hobby and will work at it day and night if they have to, but this is more along the lines of meeting a deadline in their head rather than a constant obsession.


10. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are always growing and changing. They do not become obsessed easily because obsession, to them, is boring.

They want to be expressive and dynamic at all times and being tied down by an obsession just won't allow them to do that. They are great at being "in the moment" and allowing things to happen.

Geminis can roll with the punches better than any sign, and with that sort of mindset and attitude, it is easy for them to not be caught up in their own head; most of the time, the idea of what they want changes anyway.


11. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius does not like to get too emotional. They usually run in the opposite direction of anything that is just too much for them.

Being obsessed with something or someone does not even cross their mind, as it simply has way too many feelings involved. They become extremely interested and enthralled by certain passions, but ultimately it is the joy of learning and expressing themselves that is the fuel for that, not obsession.

They will be the complete opposite of obsessed if they feel as though too much is invested.

12. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius are impulsive. They are the definition of free, and nothing dictates a single decision in their lives but themselves.


They never want to hand over the reigns or control to anyone else, and being obsessed with anything is handing over that control that they yearn for. They will most likely be fascinated with something but it never completely takes over their mind; they just do not have time for that.

The world is their oyster and they would much rather be exploring new possibilities than be stuck and obsessed with old ones.
