What is the worst fear of your sign?


March 21 - April 19

Aries natives are the dare-devils of the zodiac. However, there is a chink in their armor – bold Rams fear being inconspicuous. They were born with a desire to leave an imprint, to set big goals and triumphantly achieve them.

Worst fear of Aries

Aries need to stand out from the crowd to feel worthy; they want the whole world to know what they are capable of. Failing to make a remarkable achievement that will be remembered for at least a century after they are gone scares them immensely.


April 20 - May 20

The thing that makes Taureans jerk awake at night is the fear of change. Lack of stability distresses their sensitive personality and tilts the balance of the cozy world they have been organizing for their whole life. Structure helps Taurus feel secure.

Should their routine shift, they will have a hard time getting used to it, worrying about all the tiny adjustments they will have to make to feel stable again and ensure that no change is coming their way at least in the nearest future.


May 21 - June 20

Gemini natives are not scared of ghosts or vampires – they will surely find a topic to discuss with them. What they are really afraid of is lack of freedom. Being forced into a framework of restrictions makes their knees shake, as does the possibility of being trapped in a routine.

Independence is very dear to Gemini, as they like to feel free as a bird and fly wherever they want to and whenever they fancy. The very idea of stability and boredom is so frightful that Gemini is ready to do anything necessary to stay free.


June 21 - July 22

Cancer loves to nurture and care, but they also need to be accepted and appreciated to feel at ease. The idea of being rejected sends shivers down their spine. Their sensitive personality simply can’t take being disliked.

Worst fear of Cancer

When it comes to criticism, Cancers are also extremely vulnerable. They even shy away from making new friends because they feel unsure about whether the new acquaintances will accept them as they are. The possibility of poor judgments turns them into a bundle of nerves.


July 23 - August 22

Leo natives are as ambitious as Arians, but the mark they want to make in history is that of being an outstanding personality. Leos love being in the spotlight; the thing that gives them goose bumps is the possibility of this light being turned away or off.

However, one needn’t think Leos are vain – their worst fear is being ignored by the people they love. They care greatly about their family and friends; this is why the possibility of being forgotten by the ones they love gives them a scare.


August 23 - September 22

Virgos have high standards and do their best to live up to them. Their biggest fear is to fail to meet their own expectations, to be less than perfect, to hold the bar lower than they have previously set it. Whenever they feel they are no longer impeccable, Virgos would stress out.

Another thing is that Virgo never thinks too thoroughly before setting their standards – they just want them to be high, without assessing whether they are utopian. Most times, their flaws are simply invisible for people with realistic values and world views, so Virgos have to ease up.


September 23 - October 23

Libra natives are always balanced; their decisions are wise and well thought-over. This is why the thing that horrifies them is the possibility of a mistake. No turn they take can be wrong; otherwise they will wear themselves down questioning every decision made in the future.

Worst fear of Libra

Thing is, Libra is too hard-working and concentrated to allow for a mistake. The possibility of one makes them feel that every effort they made was a waste. No one would want to feel that, right? Libras shouldn’t, too, as to err is human and mistakes only lead to personal growth and better judgment.


October 24 - November 22

Scorpio may not be the sweetest of all zodiac signs, but they are extremely loyal. As loyalty should be returned by loyalty, the thing that gives Scorpio the creeps is being betrayed by the ones they trusted, mostly because they are not too eager to open up to people.

Whenever their trust is betrayed, it will take years to restore the order of things in a relationship. Not only the offender will suffer – Scorpios are unwilling to forgive, but they will be tortured by the loss of a friend just as much. This is why they are so afraid of losing confidence in people.


November 23 - December 21

The thing that scares the Archer more than the Boogeyman is the possibility of losing independence. Freedom is essential to Sag’s view of the world. Without unhindered movement or decision making, life is literally not worth living.

Fixed lifestyles are not for Sagittarius natives. They need to be the sole owners of their lives, free to choose what to do and where to go. Archers won’t tolerate living in a trap of a routine; they will do whatever it takes to achieve a 100% level of freedom.


December 22 - January 19

Diligent Capricorn enjoys success and achievement. Natives of the sign are used to setting precise goals; even the things they dream about have the form of measurable results accompanied by a step-by-step plan of how to drive them. Thus, the scariest thing for Capricorn is failure.

Worst fear of Capricorn

The goals the Goat fails to attain hang heavy upon them. Their mind is racing in a never-ending loop attempting to find a solution or an alternative way to achieving the goal. If Capricorns feel that failure is inevitable, they will not have a good night’s sleep until the situation is resolved and is no longer a looming threat.


January 20 - February 19

The Water Bearer is one of the most unusual and spectacular zodiac signs, an exception from all the rules. It is very important for them to manifest their peculiar nature. This is probably why the biggest fear of Aquarius is to lose their inborn uniqueness, to blend into the crowd.

The independent sign rejects conformity; they hate it when someone infringes on their independence and freedom of self-expression. Living within the framework of rules and other people’s values is a real nightmare for the liberal sign.


February 20 - March 20

Despite the seeming detachment, Pisces are an affectionate sign with a big heart. Thus, their biggest fear is being rejected. They have so much love to share, and if they feel they will fail to find someone they can share it with and be loved in return, it gives them the shudders.

Feeling loved gives a Piscean an immense self-esteem boost. When they fail to feel they are valued, they start doubting their own value. The Fishes need to have a trusted partner in their life, so the possibility of failing to find one makes their hair stand on end.
