3 Zodiac Signs That Get Obsessed Easily

Some zodiac signs are more prone to let their fascination with someone veer into obsession, and while there are many factors at play in terms of how this infatuation will be taken on the receiving end, you may be able to understand more about this intense passion by checking an admirer's sun sign. We can all drift into hyperfocus when it comes to someone or something we love. It's natural and even healthy to consume all we can about an interest –- while, of course, respecting boundaries if that interest happens to be an actual human. And when it comes to astrological placements, it's the fixed signs who seem to take first prize for most likely to obsess.


"From my observations, fixed signs are the most obsessive signs in the zodiac," said Desiree Roby Antila, astrologer and author of Sun Signs in Love, in an interview with Bustle. "The fixed modality flavors the four zodiac signs with immense focus."

Fixed signs tend to be stubborn, committed, and not easily distracted from their chosen focus (case and point). It's really all in the name. Fixed signs are known to, well, fixate. And when someone has caught their eye, the fixed signs jump in with both feet, per Astrology Zone. Of the four fixed signs of the zodiac, two of them (and one cardinal sign) are the most likely to become obsessed in love.

Mysterious Scorpio

Scorpios have quite the reputation for being intense lovers. While they also tend to have an air of mystery about them, you won't be in the dark if a Scorpio has eyes for you. The way a Scorpio shows love in a relationship is nothing short of passionate. They are deeply romantic -– but in more of a tragic "Tristan and Isolde" or "Romeo and Juliet" kind of way. These scorpions can be extremely possessive and jealous, which can, of course, be problematic. 


But this obsession can be channeled in a healthy way, so if you were born between October 23 and November 21, don't retreat from your crush just yet! As the fixed water element of the zodiac, use your drive and ability to swim in those deep waters as a means to foster a purposeful and mutual connection (via Astrology Zone). According to Elite Daily, the most compatible signs for Scorpio are Cancer, Taurus, or Pisces. Water and water or water and earth, the match is sure to be nothing short of an epic love story.

Attentive Taurus

The other fixed sign which tends to obsess the most is Taurus, the bull of the zodiac. Taurus sun signs won't budge once they have their minds made up. It's almost as though they develop tunnel vision when they're entranced by someone (via Your Tango). So, if a Taurus has chosen you as their love interest, you can expect their full and undivided attention 24/7. 


It could also be said that Taurus natives know they are worthy of what they desire, and they won't accept anything less (via Metropolitan Girls). This fixed sign tends to be pretty earthy and laid back, so when they do have an obsession, it could look a little different than your typical lovestruck admirer. Those born between April 20 and May 20 highly value material possessions, so you might expect to be showered with gifts and good food if a Taurus is trying to earn your affection.

Maternal Cancer

Next up for the most obsessive in the zodiac is a cardinal sign: Cancer. These crabs are known for being the most maternal sign of the zodiac. Cancers embody family, love, and motherhood. Just like Scorpios, their emotional waters run deep. Cancers are not the type to fall for just anyone, but if a Cancer has their heart set on you, you'll feel it full force (via Metropolitan Girls). And this intense passion can turn problematic when the desire to control takes over. 


An important lesson for Cancer natives is to love without possessing your loved one -– partner, friend, or child. Cancers are also some of the most intuitive beings of the zodiac and need to listen to their internal wisdom, especially when choosing a romantic partner. This inner compass likely won't steer them wrong, and as they can be vulnerable to mistreatment, the discernment serves as a shield of protection (via Your Tango).
