While everyone isn’t necessarily a worrywart, it is common for people to occasionally fixate on their obsession of choice. Depending on when you were born, your obsessions can run the gamut!
According to astrologists, your zodiac sign can determine not only your facial features, personality quirks, who you’re attracted to, how you perform at work but what you spend time obsessing about during the day.
Below you can find out what you’re obsessed with, according to your zodiac.
The phrase “if you’re not first, you’re last” must have been invented by an Aries. As the leader of the zodiac, you love to be first. If there’s a possibility that you may be last or even second, then you will obsess about how you can change your fate.
Competition isn’t just something that you enjoy; it makes up a major part of who you are as a person. Since you pride yourself in being a high-performance individual, you are very self-conscious about your weaknesses and relentlessly try to improve them. Being a fire sign fuels your passion to win, which can easily become an obsession.
You love the comfort of stability. An earth sign, you do not take many things lightly. Whether it’s in romance or at work, you obsess over finding the right fit for your life that will allow you to exhale.
If there is an area of your life that is chaotic, you will drive yourself crazy as you try to think of a worthwhile solution. While you may seem to have a go-with-the-flow approach, your inner voice is always screaming at you to find stability.
Ruled by Mercury, you are the communicator of the zodiac. You love words and meeting people so much that you obsess over finding your “lost twin.”

You will go to the ends of the earth to find the right soulmate. Once you find them, you will obsess over not losing them at all costs.
