The Most Demanding Zodiac Sign, According to Astrologers

They know want they want, and they want it now.

Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory may be the poster child for making unreasonable, hard-to-meet, requests—and requests are putting it lightly. She embodies drama and can be challenging to be around. You probably have people in your life who are just like her. If they don't get what they want, when they want it, they'll lose their cool. But it might be due to astrology that these people are a little more fired up than most. That's why we spoke to astrologers to find out the most demanding zodiac signs, from a tad tiresome to definitely difficult.

Libra

Libras don't get riled up easily. "They're renowned for their fairness and diplomacy, and aim to maintain a balanced approach in life," says Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac.

However, they also thrive on social interactions. If they don't get enough of that or aren't recognized for their hard work, their demanding side is sure to make an appearance.

Keep in mind that these demands will generally be reasonable, but Libras will use their charm and charisma to get what they want. They won't blow up, but they can still be a lot.

Cancer

Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the celestial body governing emotions, so you know these crabs can be quite moody. They like things done a certain way, and if you mess it up, they will not be happy.

"They are like the mother of the zodiac, and everyone needs to be in line, pay attention, and do their work," says Stina Garbis, astrologer and owner at Psychic Stina.

In addition to being emotional, these folks need a lot of reassurance. They may vie for attention or have ridiculous ideas of what constitutes affection. Trying to reach their expectations is incredibly taxing.

Gemini

These social butterflies can get bored easily, and it's why they're always jumping from one conversation to the next. Plus, they're not great with commitment, so it's hard for them to be fully present in a relationship or friendship.

"Geminis, with their dynamic energy and intellectual curiosity, might demand continuous mental stimulation and communication," says Rodriguez.

They're fast thinkers and love interacting with all types of people, but that requires those around them to keep up, which can be a feat in and of itself. Geminis demand a lot from others, but they can't always match their own standards.

Taurus

Taurus embodies comfort and stability. They have a method to their madness and need everything to be how they like it. "They are the most stubborn sign in the zodiac, so if it isn't their way, baby, it's the highway," says Garbis.

Surprisingly, these bulls are pretty patient, so they'll wait for what they want. But if you get in the way of that, it'll be a tall order to make it up to them.

If they're demanding, it's because they need more—whether that be more attention, more validation, or anything in between—and you don't want to bring out that side.

Leo

Leo demands attention from others at all times. They're ruled by the Sun, so their egos are big, and they "thrive on adoration and appreciation," says Rodriguez. "Their demand for respect and love often takes center stage in their interactions."

But this need to be recognized can be their downfall. Is someone else at the center of the dance floor at a party? Did a coworker get a promotion instead of them? Is another friend leading the conversation at brunch?

Leos don't like to share the spotlight, and this constant need for attention can be too much for the people around them.

Aries

Aries is, without a doubt, the most demanding zodiac sign. Not only are they a cardinal sign, meaning they like to be in charge, but they're also a fire sign, so they're full of passion—a dangerous combination.

"Their catchphrase is 'I want it now,'" says Garbis, so don't even think about denying them anything because they'll tear you down without any remorse.

As the firstborns of the zodiac, they have an innate confidence and can sway people to listen to them—but be careful because they can be a bit aggressive, and they'll throw a huge temper tantrum if they don't get their way.
