Astrologer reveals the three most narcissistic zodiac signs

Astrologer reveals the three most narcissistic zodiac signs

Could it be written in the stars?

With Mercury Retrograde commencing at the start of the month, extremely rare total solar eclipse which took place yesterday, and the exciting Pink Moon set to grace the skies in just a few weeks - it's clear we're all probably thinking about space and all that comes with it a lot more than usual.

Now, whether you've had to deal with an annoying colleague, a disaster date or even a nasty family member - the chances are we've probably all come across a narcissist at least once in our lives.

And, according to an astrologer, this toxic personality trait could apparently be written in the stars.

Narcissism is often characterised by authoritarian behaviour patterns, lack of remorse, extreme grandiosity, and superficiality.

But can you get an early warning as to whether someone might be a narcissist based on when their birthday is?

Reda Wigle, an astrology writer for the New York Post, has singled out the three star signs most likely to be narcissists.

So without further ado, here are the ones you have to look out for:

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Yep, those born in the height of summer are apparently at risk of being narcissists.

According to astrologers, Leos are ruled by the sun, and might be in the habit of thinking the world revolves around them.

Wigle writes: "At their big cat best, the contagious confidence that Leos possess give the rest of us permission to both love ourselves and believe that we are worthy of the love of others.

"At worst, Leos operate from a place of wounded ego or deep insecurity and things gets dark, like black hole space vacuum dark, wherein no amount of praise, love, validation, sex or success is able to satisfy or stabilize them."

Examples of famous Leos include Napoleon Bonaparte (who definitely had a sizeable ego), tech billionaire Larry Ellison and former President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorns are ruled by the planet Saturn - on the plus side this gives them stamina, diligence, discipline and a structured approach to tasks.

On the downside, Wigle warns: "Capricorns are goal oriented and this can translate to total self-absorption, an empathy deficit and a low key ruthless willingness to do anything, and conquer anyone, to get ahead."

A famous example of the Capricorn is golf champion Tiger Woods, who is known for being meticulous and goal driven.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquariuses are ruled by Uranus (no jokes, please), which is apparently the planet of invention and innovation, and the star sign if characterised by independence and assertiveness.

However, Wigle says their independence can tip over into becoming overly self-absorbed.

She writes: "Hyper independence is a kind of self-involvement and water bearers tend to wear self-sufficiency like a war medal/merit badge a quality that can bleed into believing anyone that needs more than they do is somehow deficient, less than or feeble."

Famous Aquariuses include former presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

Needless to say, whether you believe in astrology or not, it's probably best not to write someone off as a narcissist purely because of the date they were born - at least not until you've checked their moon and rising signs, anyway.
