Aries (March 21–April 19)
You become difficult.
Aries are the Zodiac’s devil’s advocate, and when they are anxious, what they want to do is tell the truth about something. They also thrive on being “correct” all of the time, so when they are uncomfortable, they are apt to create disputes out of everything in order to prove themselves “right.” Surprisingly, the way their worry displays itself the most is by them slamming heads (horns?) with anyone about anything. Aries reacts violently to anxiety and can ruin relationships in the process.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st) You develop a meticulous personality.
Clean lines, a coordinated Instagram style, and the delusion that everyone is looking at your life and thinking everything is wonderful are among the few things that may calm a Taurus. The more worried a Taurus gets, the more obsessed they will be with creating the perfect image. They are visual beings; therefore, they thrive when they believe things are “good.”
Gemini (from the 22nd of May to the 21st of June)
You try to keep your anxiety hidden, and then you act on it.
Geminis are more prone to worry than many other signs, and this is due in large part to the split nature of their minds: they can see both sides of a problem, and they are also extremely sensitive, making them prone to overreaction.
It’s easy for a Gemini to mix a slew of minor issues into one major crisis that’s really only happening in their head. The first reaction of a Gemini is to suppress their emotions and pretend that everything is well. However, they will begin to act out in passively aggressive ways over time, gradually decaying from the inside out. Keep an eye out for passive-hostile statements and harmful coping techniques that become routine.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
Your desire to impress others goes into overdrive.
Cancer patients are most at ease when they are in a stable and harmonious environment, such as their family, friend group, or workplace. It seems reasonable, then, that the majority of their anxiety emerges as a fear of someone “leaving” them or of not being liked (or perceived as successful, attractive, etc.) by the wider public.
This causes them to constantly worry about what other people think of them and then change their behavior to be as pleasing to everyone as possible. The more worried a cancer patient appears to be, the less authentic they are, and the more stressed they appear to be about a comment someone made or what a family member might think.
Leo (from July 23rd to August 22nd)
You grow envious.
Leos, known for being the most self-assured and proud sign of the zodiac, exhibit their nervousness in the most unlikely way: they feel insecure and then jealous of others. Leos center so much of their lives on themselves that they believe any uneasiness or pain they feel is due to a lack of self-esteem.
(It’s true that you have to accept responsibility for your life and the role you’ve played in shaping it, but they carry it too far.) When a Leo is jealous of their ex’s new relationship, upset that they didn’t get anything or everything that someone else did, or acting in ways that contradict their typically confident persona, they are disturbed.
Virgo (from the 23rd of August to the 22nd of September)
You are a micromanager.
Virgos enjoy getting their things together. They, for example, live to be productive, well-rounded, holistic members of their families and communities, accomplishing tremendous feats while also assisting everyone they can along the way.
(Being a Virgo is, indeed, exhausting.) Their anxiety tends to rise when things aren’t going as smoothly as they could, and small things can really set them off. Virgos express their anxiousness by wanting to micromanage and exert as much control as possible. The more manic they become, the more nervous they become, and the cycle continues.
Libra (from the 23rd of September to the 22nd of October)
You shut yourself away.
Libras are known as the Zodiac’s most social sign. They are charming, friendly, and often head over heels in love. They are very social people who, while they may not realize it, are typically at their best when they have regular contact with people they care about.
The most obvious symptom that a Libra is anxious is that they separate themselves, shun other people, and believe they prefer to be alone. Even the most reclusive Libras require a close inner circle. They have no idea that keeping themselves away from people is exacerbating their anxiety rather than alleviating it.
Scorpio (from the 23rd of October to the 22nd of November)
You are concerned about illogical concerns.
Scorpios can be dramatic, and when something bothers them deeply, they can get obsessively worried about something that appears to be a major issue but isn’t. (For example, their weight or a lack of funds.) Scorpions express their worry in ways that make them feel “safe.
” If their true concern is that they will never meet a romantic partner, they may obsess over their hair or other people they are envious of. Unfortunately, this coping method pushes people further away from what they truly desire.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
You begin to feel at ease.
A Sagittarius requires a lot of stimulation to prosper. To fully feel content, they must be constantly reading new books, exploring new locations, meeting new people, and overall growing. When people suffer from anxiety, though, they frequently bury themselves and begin to settle for what they don’t really desire, or they find something wrong with everything and anything around them. It’s not that they can’t ever settle down; it’s just that they’re attempting to settle for less than they want to build for themselves. There is a distinction, and it is significant.
Capricorn (from the 22nd of December to the 20th of January)
You are obsessed with mending other people.
Anxiety frustrates Capricorns since it is illogical. Capricorns depend on rules, structure, and understanding, so when they experience emotions for which there is no apparent source, their impulse is to project them onto others.
Capricorns who are struggling are prone to being overly committed to things like supporting their relationships, counseling those who don’t want or need their help, or overextending their arm into other people’s businesses. But it’s all a coping method. They will eventually have to cope with their own problems.
Aquarius (from the 21st of January to the 18th of February)
You become very sensitive.
An Aquarius does not react well to anxiety. For example, they have one of the most negative emotions of any sign, which is odd given how action-oriented and bright they are. They are, however, unusual, out-of-the-box thinkers with vast imaginations, talents that do not fare well when anxiety is present.
They end up completely overreacting to innocuous stimuli, becoming angry toward other people for no reason, and overreacting until they realize they are being foolish, at which point they carry on as if nothing happened.
You prosper, Pisces (February 19th to March 20th).
So the sad and bizarre thing about Pisces is that they work best when they are suffering some form of minor emotional turmoil. This discomfort drives them to hyper-creation, and they end up accomplishing more than they could have dreamed.
Their anxiety is their fuel, and they are possibly the best-equipped sign of all—they respond to it the healthiest. We have no control over whether or not anxiety occurs, but we do have power over how we react to it. Pisces are adept at transforming their angst into something positive.
