People with intense personalities tend to get a bad rap because they’re always “on” – AKA because they’re always so intense and passionate about everything. While there aren’t too many zodiac signs that have intense personalities, they do still exist.
And those who tend to complain about how intense these horoscope signs are all the time are usually the zodiac signs that are the most laidback of astrology. You know the ones I mean.
The zodiac signs who never get excited about anything, and when they do get excited or angry or sad, it’s almost impossible to tell for sure because they don’t show how they really feel on their faces.
But back to the zodiac signs with the most intense personalities. If you’re a laidback person or someone who doesn’t often express a lot of emotion, you need an intense person in your life.
They’ll have enough emotion and energy for the both of you, yes, but they’ll also teach you that it’s not weird or weak to express yourself (I know some of you might think that’s true).
If you’re also an intense person, having someone in your life to match your intensity and passion is like having that validation that you can be yourself without being judged.
So, if you’re a zodiac sign with an intense personality, don’t ever feel down about the kind of person you are, even when people inevitably tell you to lighten up or take a chill pill.
And if you’re not sure if you have an intense personality or not, there are some telltale signs that almost all intense personalities share.
If you’re an intense person, you probably wear your heart on your sleeve. There’s no stuffing your feelings or emotions down – you let yourself feel them and you don’t try to hide it (what’s the point?!). In that same vein, you are probably also incredibly empathetic and sensitive to others’ feelings.
Intense people are unafraid to speak their minds, be bold, and show a lot of passion. Whether you’re intense about your relationships, your career, or yourself, you give everything 100 percent in life.
Not only do intense personalities have such big emotions, feelings, and thoughts, but they also show their intensity physically, as well. I’m talking serious eye contact, confident posture, and speaking in a loud, commanding voice when you have something to say.
Granted, each horscope is different, but these characteristics tend to manifest in similar ways, whether you’re a sensitive and moody intense person or an assertive and powerful intense person.
To know for sure if you’re one of the zodiac signs with the most intense personalities, according to astrology, keep reading.
1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, your intensity comes from your fearlessness. There’s nothing you won’t try at least once, and anyone who knows you knows that having an intense, outspoken personality is an important part of who you are. Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day, you have an intensity that very few zodiac signs can match.
Part of this intensity comes from the fact that you’re a fire sign. As a fire sign, you blaze a trail for yourself, speak your mind, and make bold choices. You’ve also been known to be a hothead, but again, that’s just what makes you an intense individual.
2. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, your intensity comes from being intensely emotional. You are so empathetic and sensitive to the point that it’s impossible for people not to see how intense you can be. Whether you’re trying to relate to someone, help a person in need, or you’re fighting for something you believe in, your intensity comes out when you let your heart take over.
Your emotions can come in all shapes and sizes. You can be moody, angry, sad, or happy, but no matter what you feel, your emotions are intense and tremendous. You never feel anything lightly – you either feel everything (intensely) or nothing at all.
3. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, your strong personality comes from your power. Maybe you know it, maybe you don’t, but you are by far one of those most powerful zodiac signs there is. Your power comes from your charm, leadership, and friendliness – no matter what you have to do, you’re able to show everyone just who’s in charge in life.
Of course, while you’re good at being in control and being number one, you don’t use your intensity for bad. You like being the person everyone looks up to. Plus, being the lion of astrology means that intense personality just comes naturally to you.
4. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, your intensity comes from your magnetism. You don’t even have to be speaking to someone for them to notice just how intense you are – they can see it in your eyes. You’re mysterious, passionate, and focused in everything you do because that’s just who you are. Everything you do in life is meaningful to you, so doing it all with intensity just makes sense.
You are probably the zodiac sign with the most intense personality. You don’t just show your intensity in one or two areas of your life; it’s there no matter what. This intensity proves to others that you don’t take anything in life lightly; you live every day passionately.
5. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your intensity comes from your intuition. There are other zodiac signs who are just as empathetic and sensitive to others like you, but you have an intuition that no one else has. This intuition makes you intensely aware of what others are going through, as well as explains your intensely spiritual energy.
You’re the kind of zodiac sign who always wants to help others and do some good for yourself in the process. While your intensity might not be apparent to everyone, the connections you make with people and your spiritual vibes inside you give off a very intense energy.
