Mar. 21 - Apr. 19
Overachieving Aries often set the bar too high for themselves in the race to impress and win the first prize. They put so much on their own shoulders that the weight of it starts crushing them. They start worrying about enormous responsibility and possible negative outcomes, meeting deadlines, living up to the expectations and what-not.
Aries firmly believe that asking peers for help undermines their (Aries’) reputation and delegating is a huge no-no. So, if your good friend of this sign seems overwhelmed and under a lot of stress, be the first to suggest some assistance and help them with a project or two.
April 20 - May 20
Organized Taurus likes stability and finds comfort in things happening in accordance with a structured plan and schedule. When something unexpected happens, it pulls the rug from under their feet, and they stand helpless and confused. Taurus finds it hard to quickly adjust to the new factors, they feel they are losing control over the situation, start feeling uneasy and panic.
Our everyday life is full of many unknown variables, and it is impossible to predict what each new turn will bring. Taurus needs to learn to be more agile and nimble, and they should do not latch onto plans that may change. That will not only bring them inner peace but will also skyrocket their productivity.
May. 21 - Jun. 20
Lively and upbeat Gemini can’t stand when their freedom is restricted. Even standing in a queue, the speed and length of which is beyond their control can make them very uncomfortable. A relationship in which their partner is trying to control them or being stuck at a job that does not entail any kind of growth – it all can break them into pieces.
In their life Gemini needs movement, and of equal importance is the understanding that in any situation they can stand up and walk away as soon as they want to. Situations in which it appears there is no easy way out, freak them out. Being locked into a boring and inescapable routine can make Gemini very anxious.
Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Cancer is extremely focused on their family and inner circle and they feel responsible for the wellbeing of their pack’s members They need to make sure their home is safe, their loved ones have eaten well, they are dressed warm enough, and so on and so forth. This overprotective behavior may be quite annoying.
But Cancer’s motivation behind all this fidgeting is the fear of losing loved ones. Cancer feels so closely attached to their families, that the slightest thought something wrong may happen to their close ones gives them shivers. So, if a Cancer calls yet again to check on you don’t be snappish but comfort them instead.
Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
It seems that Leo ooze confidence and they do not strike as the type that blushes easily. Yet they do worry they might embarrass themselves in public – the opinion of others is crucial to them and they are afraid they can accidentally make a fool out of themselves. They just have to shine, otherwise, it’s a disaster.
They may hide this fear fairly well, but the scary thought of making a blooper will still be gnawing at them. Leo needs to understand that everybody can have their “off day”, learn how to shrug their shoulders in style and play it cool no matter what.
Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
A sneeze of two does not mean you have to start drafting your will, and a few spots on your skin do not necessarily need dialing 911, but Virgos are prone to conclude the worst about themselves. It is remarkable how much they know about rare and incurable diseases and how quickly they jump at self-diagnosing, matching their symptoms with the most terrible conditions.
First, they need to get professional attention and advice, but not over and over again – not only it is costly, but it also gives them extra stress. Virgos can easily get carried away with their health and worry so much about it that it can delay recovery. They need to learn to trust doctors, and if it is just a cold, to not think much more of it.
Sep. 23 - Oct. 23
Libra can tolerate a lot and, wishing to avoid conflicts at all means, shrugs it off when people do them wrong. But it does not mean they are ever-jolly beings that will accept anything. If someone keeps repeatedly overstepping the boundaries, this will make them extremely anxious and seeking out revenge.
Libras should learn how to set personal boundaries and speak up about their discomfort about this or that behavior right away. Suppressing outbursts of negative emotions and nurturing them in your heart can have devastating effects. At the same time, other Zodiac signs should not abuse Libra’s peacemaking personality.
Oct. 24 - Nov. 22
Some people can really drive Scorpio up the wall. Having to deal with stupidity and arrogance rubs them the wrong way. When somebody cuts in line, is rude to them in the office or at the restaurant, cuts them off in traffic, etc., Scorpio loses heart. They may hide their emotions behind a plastic smile, but in reality, they would be just a few steps away from a meltdown.
This inner tension builds up and takes the form of anxiety. When dealing with difficult people, Scorpio may want to use the little trick of giving “mental hugs”: trying to empathize with this rude person, and realize that they’re angry, or scared, or having a bad day. And so, you mentally (and from time to time, physically) give them a hug.
Nov. 23 - Dec. 21
Sagittarius radiates positive energy, good vibes, and optimism. Genuine smiles and bursts of laughter seem to accompany Sagittarius. They have a strong immune system against anxiety, but they start feeling ill at ease when those beams of happiness die out in the surrounding gloom and doom.
When surrounded by negative-thinking people and naysayers, Sagittarius feels trapped. They soon succumb to stress and depression. It might be an idea to surround yourself with similarly cheerful people to bring this bursting energy back.
Dec. 22 - Jan. 19
Capricorn has high expectations both for themselves and from surrounding people. Poor execution, unpunctuality, bad reasoning will get under their skin. They get anxious when people and organizations do not see simple solutions and overcomplicate things.
Dealing with pointless bureaucracy and red tape is very painful for them, they simply cannot comprehend the waste of resources of both sides. Basically, people making this world imperfect bring Capricorns down.
Jan. 20 - Feb. 19
Aquarians have a lot going on inside their heads – there are quite a lot of worries and concerns they have to deal with and console. They need to be given an opportunity to be on their own and left alone. They cannot act on the spot, improvise or have orders barked at them.
Aquarians need to absorb a question, digest it very well, and only then either come up with a decision or dive into the execution of the project. They cannot stand the haste. So being urged and hurried up can make them anxious and uncomfortable.
Feb. 20 - Mar. 20
Pisces worry about zillion things, from an upcoming exam to the fact that the lawns haven’t been mowed in a while. The peak of their stress is that they are so sick of being worried that they become anxious about being anxious. This chain reaction it hard to stop, and they start coming up with more and more reasons for apprehension.
Sometimes they need to escape to a spa retreat for a weekend or two or take a yoga class to lower their levels of anxiety. Letting things go and realizing that you cannot control everything can help deal with stressful situations.
