What are the most obsessive signs? In this guide, we will put all twelve zodiac signs under the magnifying glass and find out which signs like to obsess over everything.
Love is no doubt a beautiful thing. But like everything else, it can be problematic when it tends toward the extreme. Being obsessive means you love someone (or something) so much that the thought of it is the only thing that controls your actions and decisions. Obsession causes people to lose control of themselves and they may even do extreme things.
But Obsession isn’t always creepy. There are people whose obsession may not tend to the extreme but they’re still possessive in their little way. One can get an idea of how possessive a person is by looking at their zodiac sign. Here is a ranking of the most possessive zodiac signs from the least to the most obsessive.

Least Obsessive to Most Obsessive Signs
Sags love to be free like a bird. They believe the only person that should make decisions about their life is them. Since being obsessed often means having control over someone else, Sagittarians can be caught living like that. That’s not to say that they lack the capacity to love. However, they don’t allow anything to take over their mind to the point of absolute obsession. They want to be free to explore all the different possibilities instead of remaining attached to an obsession.
Aquarians think showing emotions is a weakness so being obsessive is the last thing for them. In fact, rather than get attached, Aquarians prefer to run away from things rather than get tied down by them. Being obsessed is an extreme feeling for them. Sometimes, they may become interested in certain people or things. But the fear of being tied down or being too invested in things makes them run away from it.
Geminis are rapidly changing and evolving. To the Gemini, being obsessed with one thing is simply too boring. They have a dynamic nature which makes it too difficult for them to get tied down by anything. Their wants and desires also change quite easily. Geminis have a “live in the moment” mantra. This mindset allows them to roll with anything and take everything as it comes.
Capricorns are too organized and responsible to be obsessive. They typically have their life together and they know that being obsessive can mess this up so they try to avoid extreme passions. Instead of obsession, we can say Capricorns are determined. They set high standards for themselves and will stay true to them. When Capricorns find a hobby or work, they will work at it daily till they master it.
Unlike other people that are likely to get obsessed with people or relationships, Virgos don’t care about that. In fact, they’re more cautious than possessive when it comes to relationships. What they are likely to be obsessed over are work and success. They’re workaholics with an impressive ability to multitask and think on their feet. Despite being very hardworking, Virgos don’t get too obsessed with work too. They’re confident in their ability and they’re sure of their ability to get the work done.
Leos are too independent-minded and self-motivated to get obsessed easily. They are self-confident, so they do not seek validation or praise from others. Their sense of pride and selfishness are the main reasons why they hardly ever get obsessed with other people. If anything, Leo is obsessed with his own self-image and personal ego.
The only thing that is more popular than the Aries’ stubbornness is their passion which can turn to obsession in the right circumstances. It takes a while for the Aries to get into an Obsessive state and their hatred for routine and repetition helps them to get out of it just as quickly too. Asides from being passionate lovers, Arieses can also get passionate about competition. They love the idea of winning which makes them fiercely competitive.
Libras are naturally clingy. They tend to become too attached to the idea of having someone in their life and will build their reality around that person. This can be a lover, a friend, or a family member. Libras thrive on the attention they get from someone else to feel satisfied with their life. However, the Libra’s typical obsession doesn’t really last long. They’re likey to move to the next thing they find attractive within a very short time.
Pisceans are more in touch with their emotions than anyone else. They have such an active imagination fantasizing all day about life with that person they’re in love with. Since they spend a lot of time in their heads like this, it’ll be difficult to get them to snap out of their fantasies to see the reality. People born under this zodiac sign are also confident about their feelings and they don’t hold back when it comes to expressing how they feel.
Once a Taurean decides that he wants something, he pursues it blindly and passionately. They can quickly become obsessed with someone and they’ll blindly go after the person. Nothing else matters to the obsessed Taurean. Taureans have a high ego so if they set their heart on getting something, they think they deserve it and will do anything possible to get it.
The Cancer’s life literally revolves around relationships and family. Their love for the people they care about can quickly become a possessive obsession if care is not taken. When they say “I love you”, you can interpret that as “I can’t imagine my life without you” The Cancer’s natural maternal instinct can tend toward being controlling of the person’s life. Cancers are in touch with their emotions and they’re not afraid to let people know that they’re crazy about them.
Scorpios have a reputation for being too intense with everything. They’re the most passionate and protective of all zodiac signs which can make them quite possessive, especially in relationships. When scorpions become obsessed with someone, it consumes them completely and takes over their entire being. Scorpios want to breathe and eat whatever it is they’re obsessed with at the moment. Their feelings can become quite problematic as well. When they’re scorned, Scorpios can go crazy and vindictive.
Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, it is best to be aware of one’s emotions and take charge of it. Being in love with someone is great, but once you notice you’re tending towards obsession, it’s best to take note and adjust accordingly.
