Leos may think that they’re the best, but they are actually hated by many.

No one likes to think of themselves as the most hated, and when it comes to zodiac signs and personality traits, depending on who you ask is the worst, you’ll get different answers.

The truth is that every zodiac sign has a darkside to them, and depending on how well or poorly aspected a personal planet it it can reveal a possible outcome, not that anything is fated, because even in astrology a person can exercise their free will.

Which zodiac sign is the most hated of them all?

We strive to be free of judgment when looking at the darkside of all zodiac signs, but there are people who will say that for sure one sign or another is the most hated zodiac sign of them all.

Some might say that Virgo is the most hated, others will proclaim it’s Gemini for their duplicity, and people might even think sweet Taurus or a Cancer is the worst horoscope offender of them all.

Some zodiac signs are considered too stubborn, such as Gemini and Taurus. Other zodiac signs are viewed as too manipulative, like Aries, Leo, and even Cancer.

And even Leos can be accused of being the most hated, which is odd, since the Sun rules this fire zodiac sign, right?

Of all twelve zodiac signs, those born between July 23 and August 22 may have the most haters of all and it could stem from jealousy for their perfect mane or from disdain because of their courage during times of adversity and strife.

Despite often acting as the self-proclaimed “king of the jungle,” people get fed up with many aspects of the lion’s attitude, and this could be the root cause on why they are so hated.

Don’t kill the messenger on this one, because a deep dive into why Leo is the most hated zodiac sign is a look at what others think or have said. 

Here’s what people have said is the reason why Leo is so disliked and at times hated.

Why Leo is the most hated zodiac sign:

1. Leo is most hated because they are attention-seeking.

As a fire sign that is ruled in the sun, Leo innately shines brightly. But the attention that they naturally receive is never enough for them.

They want the spotlight and won’t be satisfied until all eyes are on them.

Leos get blinded by their search for undivided attention and struggle to sympathize with others.

Though they expect love and attention from those around them, they are often unaware of other’s emotions.

2. Leos are egotistic.

The fourth sign in the zodiac can be self-centered and egotistic.

They honestly believe that the world revolves around them and that they’re justified in doing anything necessary to keep it that way. They will unconsciously neglect the needs of others in their chase for personal gain.

Leos think about themselves first. They will always be their own top priority. This makes them a terrible team player.

3. People hate Leo’s arrogant attitude.

Nobody wants to be around someone with a raging superiority complex, and Leos certainly do.

They are exceptionally arrogant people. Leos are extremely full of themselves and find it difficult to see that they have any flaws.

Hanging out with a Leo can be painful when they only talk about themselves. They will constantly brag about themselves and it can be hard to get a word in.

4. Leos are stubborn.

Although Taurus is notorious for being stubborn, Leo can surprisingly rival them.

They are headstrong and opinionated in nature.

Changing a Leo’s mind can be near impossible. Once they have an opinion it is extremely difficult to convince them otherwise. They won’t want to listen to your point, and they definitely won’t agree to it.

Similarly, they don’t like asking for help, which can annoy those around them. If they get lost on a car ride, they won’t want to stop for directions, even if that results in extra hours of driving.

5. Leos are very jealous people.

Because Leos like to be the center of attention, they get jealous when they see someone that they view as more talented than them. And if that person happens to get a lot of attention, Leos turn into a jealous wreck.

Their competitive nature means that the success of others results in jealousy on their part.

In a relationship, the fire sign gets jealous if their partner pays attention to anyone else. Even a lingering look at someone else can set a Leo off.

6. This Fire sign is controlling.

Leos have a “my way or the highway mentality.”

As a Fixed sign modality, they are inflexible and are hesitant to change. This can make them incredibly controlling.

They are a dominant force and want to control everyone and every situation, which can get on the nerves of those around them.

Though Leos have their, admittedly many, negative qualities, in the end, they mean well.

They are fueled by creative expression and have the ability to achieve anything that they wish for. The problem, however, is the way that they go about it.
