The Most Annoying Zodiac Sign, According to Astrologers

Their off-putting habits make it hard to be around them.

Maybe you want to scream every time your husband leaves the toilet seat up. Or perhaps it makes you cringe when your friend cracks her knuckles. And let's not forget that aunt who interrupts you whenever you're talking. These habits are clearly annoying, but no one's perfect, right? When a person is generally pleasant to be around, we can let one or two of their quirks slide. But when their obnoxious behaviors start adding up, that's a bit of a different story—and why we consulted astrologers to find out the most annoying zodiac signs. Read on for their worst offenders, from the somewhat irksome to the absolutely infuriating.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Hoping to have a chill evening and catch up with friends? Then don't include this sign in the plans because it'll become the Leo show.

"They can be entertaining and have a great sense of humor, but they make everything about them," says professional astrologer Anna Kovach. She adds that Leo has a penchant for loudness and drama that can "get under people's skin."

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Made a dinner reservation for 7:00? You'll probably want to tell your Pisces friend it's for 6:30, so they actually show up on time.

"Pisces have an overly optimistic relationship with time, so they're not the most punctual people," explains Alice Smith of Alice Smith Astrology. "And whether or not they reply to your texts in a timely manner also depends on their mood, so you'll either get a prompt reply, or they'll respond a week later and claim, 'I just saw this!'"

Whether it's by micromanaging coworkers at the office or creating a chore chart at home, Virgo's type-A personality gets frustrating at times. Did they need to ask their spouse to re-clean the kitchen or an intern to change the wording of a non-important email?

"Virgo people are meticulous and their need for control can be overwhelming," says celebrity psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman. "They can end up annoying others with their demanding and perfectionist nature."

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Aquarius may be the most intelligent member of the zodiac, but do they have to rub it in everyone's face? Does it really matter if you don't pronounce La Croix in the proper French accent? This contrarian personality can irritate others in no time.

"Even though Aquarians are kind and charitable, they love to do things their own way—and if others find it annoying, well, that's just a price they're willing to pay," says Honigman. Of course, their unwillingness to change often aggravates such people even more.

Is there anything more annoying than trying to figure out what to eat for dinner with someone who refuses to share their opinion? But when it's a Cancer, they'll be remiss to share their thoughts on just about anything.

"Cancer has a reputation for moodiness, and that tends to express by…not expressing itself," shares Smith. "Cancer expects others to intuitively know their feelings."

And because they're so emotional and sensitive, their clinginess can also become frustrating. "Much like their sign, the crab, they hang on for dear life," adds Kovach.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Spending too much time with this sign can be downright exhausting.

"They're a non-stop party, and unless you are also a non-stop party, the whirlwind of actions and emotions can feel a bit much," explains Honigman. "Gemini is represented by two figures: the Twins. They have the energy of two people and can command all the attention in the room for 24 hours flat."

But what really annoys people is how incredibly talkative they are. "Geminis can't shut up. Plain and simple," says Smith. "And it's fine when there's something to talk about, but they'll also talk just to talk."
