The Most High-Maintenance Zodiac Signs, According to Astrologers

We all have that one friend who needs things done their way, no questions asked. If things don't go exactly as planned, it’s a disaster! Or maybe you know someone who's so Type-A that they never let anyone else take charge. A high-maintenance person is someone who needs a lot of attention, time, and effort to stay happy and chill. Whether they do everything themselves or expect everyone else to bend to their will, dealing with these personalities can be challenging. But hey, some folks just need a little more attention to detail to have a good time. According to astrologers, you’re more likely to be high-maintenance if you were born under one of these zodiac signs.

The Most High-Maintenance Zodiac Signs, According to Astrologers

Aries (March 20-April 19)

Aries are the bold and fearless leaders of the zodiac, always taking big risks for big rewards. You don't let other people's opinions about your dreams and ambitions stop you from chasing what you want and making it happen. With a clear vision for yourself and the willingness to go all in, you can be pretty demanding of the people around you. You'll do it yourself if they don't meet your standards—faster and better than they could. Some might see this as arrogance, but you know your worth and are willing to give yourself what others won’t. It takes someone special to keep up with you!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancer is one of the most emotionally demanding and high-maintenance zodiac signs—surprising to some at first. The stereotype about this water sign is that you're endlessly giving and hopelessly romantic in love, which is true. But for all you pour into your partner, you expect them to shower you with love and affection twice as hard. This is why Cancer has a reputation for being moody and hard to read when you're emotional. Instead of just telling your partner what's wrong, you sit around and mope until they figure out what they've done to upset you. You're a loyal lover with a ride-or-die personality, but there's no denying you can be high-maintenance!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22)

Libra is the most classic definition of high-maintenance in astrology. On the surface, you project a carefree attitude, but your need for balance can make you obsess over things. If things aren't exactly the way you like them, you nitpick the little details in your mind, trying to find a solution. Worse yet, because you're such a people pleaser, you'll make passive-aggressive comments about what you don't like rather than address them directly. Libras are also masters of playing the social game, so you're really good at subtly influencing people to do what you want, whether or not they realize you're the one pulling the strings!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Capricorn is another classic high-maintenance sign, even if it doesn’t seem that way at first. You hold yourself to sky-high standards and expect the same from everyone around you. You can be demanding and hard to please, but it’s because you believe in earning it—never asking more from others than you do from yourself. Your need for control is strong, which is why Capricorns thrive in positions of power where you can manage the details. You love keeping an eye on everything and making sure everyone meets your expectations. Plus, you get a little insight into the drama, which, let’s be honest, you love!
