What is it about narcissists that make them so fascinating? Is it their over-exaggerated sense of self-importance or their entitlement and air of superiority? Maybe it’s because there are so many of them and we all know one… or ten.
If you’ve been in a relationship with a narcissist, you try never to be in that situation again. Narcissists are so full of themselves and their needs that they aren’t even aware of the damage that they do. Even their horoscope can’t convince them otherwise.
Narcissists will do whatever they need to do to get what they want, even if it leads to violence. While they may appear charming and warm, they’re actually cold, detached, and are lacking in compassion and empathy.
Some narcissists are fully aware of their narcissism and do nothing about it because they don’t think their narcissistic qualities are a bad thing. They’re not users, they’re merely focused and determined to get what they want out of life. They believe that they’re superior to everyone and if they don’t see you on their same level then you’re probably meant to assist them in their goals.
There’s one thing that narcissists don’t want and that’s a lack of attention. If all eyes aren’t on them, they’ll do what they have to do to get the focus back on them.
Narcissists are always seeking the perfect mate who must be beautiful, brilliant, powerful, and successful and when they find that someone, they hang on tight while at the same time trying to destroy their perfect mate’s power.
When talking to people, narcissists tend to exaggerate their achievements and talents so that they sound too good to be true — which they are. Never take a narcissist at face value or believe what they say, especially if it’s about themselves.
Here are the most narcissistic zodiac signs, ranked from most to least.
1. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus tends to believe that they’re better and deserve more than most people. They seem to think that what they do for their own gain is worth it because they’re worth it. They lack the ability to empathize — if it didn’t happen to them then they won’t even bother to try to understand it.
Taurus and narcissists both tend to be bullies who always want their way and who both have intense anger issues. They’re master manipulators and can be shallow and materialistic. However, the most narcissistic thing about Taurus is their ability to talk people into doing things they’d never normally do. You need to be on your guard when dealing with a Taurus.
2. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are so full of themselves that’s it’s not hard to see them as narcissists. They honestly believe that the world revolves around them and that they’re justified in doing whatever they need to do to keep it that way. They come off as very confident but are secretly insecure just like a narcissist. Leos practically invented love-bombing, the tactic of showering someone with attention, gifts, texts, and flowers and then when the person is hooked, all that love goes away until they start fearing that the object of their love-bombing is pulling away, then they do it all over again.
Leos will do almost anything to satisfy their desires and they don’t care who gets hurt in the process. If you need to disengage from a narcissistic Leo, they’ll be able to spin it so that they’re the victim and garner more attention for themselves.
3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
If a Scorpio is in a good place, they’re not that narcissistic, but watch out if they’ve recently been hurt or betrayed; they become extremely focused on revenge. When a Scorpio is on the warpath, they don’t care who gets hurt and what they have to do to exact their revenge. Payback is more than a b*tch for Scorpio, it can be cold, calculating, and violent. They don’t seem to see how wrong it is to take advantage of others to get what they want. Scorpios have a talent for completely blocking people out and erasing them from their lives.
4. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
If you accused an Aquarius of being narcissistic, they’d say that you were wrong, that they’re just independent. Well, they can be independent to the point where they don’t think about anything but their own wants. They may want to help people and the earth but not if there are too many feelings involved. Aquarius has the cold and aloof qualities that narcissists do.
They will also take advantage of people for their own goals and sometimes their charity work is merely a way to get attention and followers. They want to inspire because they love that kind of attention. They don’t expect for most people to understand them because they’re better than most people. Aquarians think they know better than you and if they use you for their own goals, then you should feel flattered. And all this makes them one of the most narcissistic zodiac signs.
5. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Well, Virgos have at least one narcissistic trait which is that they’re convinced that they’re always the biggest genius in the room. Virgos are full of themselves and have the data to back it up since they love nothing better than researching. Perhaps because Virgos are so smart, they’re very good liars and will lie to get what they want, especially if they’re wanting attention. Narcissists seek perfection — they want the perfect partner, perfect house, perfect job and so do Virgos. Narcissists and Virgos alike can behave in an arrogant or conceited manner.
6. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are more inconsiderate than narcissistic. They aren’t always thinking of others and often times they don’t take them into account, even when it’s a loved one. Aries do what they want and if it works out for others, that’s cool; if it doesn’t, that’s not Aries’ concern. Aries know that they’re all that and don’t really need other people to validate them — they’ll do it for themselves. Just don’t try to challenge their superior status because you’ll have a war on your hands.
7. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
If you get in the way of a Sagittarius getting what they want or you hold them back in any way, they’ll make you regret it. When it comes to saying what’s on their mind, Sagittarians can be blunt and they don’t seem to care how much it hurts. Sagittarians have a disconnect because it’s impossible for them to see things from another person’s point of view.
They don’t understand why someone wouldn’t behave in the same way that they do, so when they use manipulation tactics to get people to do what they want them to do, they don’t see how it’s wrong. Sagittarius isn’t evil the way that narcissists can be, just immature and self-centered.
8. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers can be needy like a narcissist and they will use whatever tricks they have to keep someone paying attention to them, but Cancers are too compassionate to be true narcissists. If they were using someone for their own profit, Cancer would feel bad. They might be co-dependent, pessimistic, and highly suspicious but they’re not arrogant, unemotional, or scheming. When a Cancer gets emotionally hurt, they can become very self-centered and consumed with feelings of self-pity.
9. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis tend to be too scattered and disorganized to be good narcissists. They’re clever and can certainly spin a tale to make themselves look like a hero but they’re not great at using people for their own needs. They can be narcissistic when it comes to talking about themselves, that’s certainly true, but even then, they’re not out to hurt anyone, they just like the sound of their own voices. Geminis are smart and very social, which are helpful traits if you’re a narcissist, but Geminis are at their essence too kind and thoughtful to be good narcissists.
10. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Now, Libras can be very deceptive and superficial. They like pretty things and pretty people and will use their charm to get them. All Libras enjoy getting attention and do naturally expect special differential treatment but they’re not cold or arrogant. Libras try to avoid conflict and doing things that could possibly cause others pain. Libras love talking about themselves and their accomplishments to anyone who’ll listen and will exaggerate those things if they sense that the listener isn’t impressed enough. It doesn’t matter if you played the same part in your school play, Libra will tell you that they did it better.
11. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are too dependable and conscientious to be extremely narcissistic. But that’s not to say that they don’t have some narcissistic traits. Capricorns can be somewhat calculating and cold-hearted when it comes to getting what they want. If a Capricorn was going to be narcissistic, it probably would have something to do with their work or career; manipulating a loved one wouldn’t sit right with a Capricorn.
12. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Because Pisces individuals are usually so selfless, they tend not to be narcissists. They’d have too much trouble being calculating, cold, and insensitive as those qualities go against everything they stand for. Pisces are more comfortable being followers than leaders and probably don’t have the energy required to be a narcissist.
