Being one of the greedy zodiac signs isn’t just about wanting more than your fair share; it’s caring only about your needs without any regard to the future. These people tend to be self-centered and often fail to take into consideration how their actions will affect others. And no matter what their horoscope or astrology say otherwise, they want what they want, and they want it now.

To be greedy you need to have an intense or excessive desire for something — often times food. Greedy is the bully who eats his or your lunch at summer camp, never minding that someone is going to go without food for that meal.

Greedy people want more than their share and are never satisfied with a small amount. If they’re greedy about money, they will never have enough even if they’re billionaires two times over. They want to have something that’s better than what their neighbor has, and when they get it, they still want to have more.

Being greedy for power isn’t unlike being greedy for money, especially in the way that need grows larger as it is fed. There are times when a greedy person may take something that they didn't earn or that they don’t deserve, such as credit for a co-worker’s idea or a promotion when there's someone more deserving.

When you’re greedy you tend to not look at the big picture. You’re concerned with your needs right now, and instead of solving problems, you just don’t recognize their existence. Someone else can clean up the problems your greed has created. Since a greedy person tends to be centered on their own needs, they may tear down others to feel better about the actions they’ve taken to get what they want. 

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries individuals tend to be great bargainers, and this is because they want as much as they can get for as little as possible. They love freebies and giveaways and are the first in line for anything complimentary.

Why order dinner when there are free appetizers at the bar? If it's one per customer, it's not unlike Aries to request something extra or try to strike a deal. Aries tend to be not as enthusiastic about free stuff they have to earn, they'd rather just have it given to them rather than have to work at it.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are like the CEOs of a business who gives themselves a generous bonus but then tells their employees that it was a bad year for business. It's not that Capricorns are horribly selfish — they're not, they just believe that they're due for all the hard work they put in and want to be rewarded.

While Capricorns do get satisfaction from a job well done, they get even more satisfaction from being able to have a big bank account and financial security.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are very intelligent and love to show off their smarts. They're always looking for loopholes or ingenious ways they can outsmart people. Leos don't consider what may happen down the line if their actions are detrimental to someone else's bank account.

Leos tend to stay within the confines of the law, but that doesn't stop them from having bank accounts in the Cayman Islands if it will save them money on their taxes. Leos also love to buy things, and the bigger and shinier, the better. They can be quite competitive when trying to keep up with the Joneses.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus have an appetite for life and sometimes that appetite borders on gluttony. They want to try and experience everything, and they'd prefer it if someone else would foot the bill. The Taurus individual promises to be a delightful dinner companion but would love it if you picked up the bill.

Are you in the process of taking over an island resort? Ask Taurus to try it out for you, just don't expect them to do any work in return. It's not that Taurus are lazy, it's that they really appreciate their downtime and need it to decompress. Taurus tend to love food and can be quite greedy when it comes to expensive tasting menus and fabulous meals.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are greedy when it comes to attention. They don't like it when their partners flirt or hang out with anybody besides them. Scorpios can be extremely jealous, and that jealousy can feed right into their greed. Yes, they can be obsessive when it comes to a loved one.

When a Scorpio feels like they're not getting everything they need, they will take control of the situation. Scorpios can be manipulative when it comes to satisfying their needs and they tend to give very little thought to anybody else at that time.
