Obsession doesn’t even begin to cover it.
I remember the days when the word “fanatical” was a bad thing. As in, “His behavior around Madame Miranda was both fanatical and dangerous.” Nowadays, fanatical only means you’re dead serious about a “thing” and nothing on earth is going to stop you from getting what you want.
In astrology, the fanatical zodiac signs are also obsessive-compulsive, ego-driven, and have a selfish wonder. But fanaticism basically stems around being a fan. As we all know, it’s so much more. Being a fanatical fan isn’t just about loving Mimi McBigStar, it’s about killing her and eating her as well. That’s the kind of fanatical I’m talking about. Go big or go home, right?
Fanatical behavior is also at the heart of ambition and drive. It’s good to have that pitbull-like tenacity when it comes to business. Fanatical personalities also make the best collectors on earth, and truly, if one is all about success in all things, then having a fanatical nature is the strongest foundation you’ll need.
1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
In order to even think about fanaticism, you have to be headstrong and willful, and there is no sign as gritty or latched on as Aries when they want something. Whether it’s a person, thing, place or interest, if Aries takes interest in it, the intention is to own it, utterly.
2. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
We hear a lot about the gentle nature of Cancer and how “home”-oriented these folks are. Well, YEAH, and you know why they’re always at home? Because they are planning, scheming and researching ways to execute their diabolical or simply fanatical events.
Cancer will take a full year to figure out what to wear to a concert… but oh, that outfit will rock.
3. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Speaking of Go Big or Go Home, you’ve got Mighty Leo heading up Team Fanatic for the win. Leo makes it a point of pride to acquire whatever it takes to get whatever they want.
If it’s a person, they will spare no expense to thrill, but don’t be surprised to find out that Leo actually knows more about you than you do yourself. Now, THAT’s fanatical.
4. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
The softer of the fanatics, Libra is the guy you’ve always heard about — you know, the one in his mom’s basement with the video games. Except he’s a gamer, a good one, and a master at his craft, bringing in all those nifty gamer bucks that we all need, while mom’s upstairs fixin’ tuna mac and cheese.
He may love his D & D, but he’s also got a first edition of Dante’s Inferno, so “respect.”
5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
It’s the obsessiveness. It’s just a Sagittarius thing. They obsess and that turns them into fanatics and know-it-alls. What obsessed them is what they become, and you’ll notice that about 98 percent of all cosplayers are Sagittarius.
Comic Con should really be called Sagittarius Fanatic Con. They ARE Groot.
6. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Not the nicest sign, especially when the Aquarian is a fanatic, which, unfortunately happens to the best of them. Aquarius has that tendency to fantasize relationships between themselves and famous people.
Yeah, they’re the stalkers and creeps. You’ll find fanatical Aquarians saying things like, “Idris Elba is totally the dead beat dad for our love child.” That’s when you notify Mr. Elba that he needs a restraining order from ALL Aquarians!
