If you’ve never researched Zodiac signs before it’s not a terribly hard concept to grasp. Zodiac signs exist in both historical astronomy and astrology and can be summed up as such: The zodiac is a circle of twelve 30° divisions of celestial longitude that are centered upon the ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year.
Determining your zodiac sign is as simple as looking up which sign corresponds to the period your birthday falls in. There are 12 different signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces,) and many people believe that each one corresponds with different personality traits as well as possess the ability to help you understand what your future has in store for you. Some people have devoted their lives to understanding how the Zodiac Signs and cycles effect everyone uniquely.
If you’re still following along it’s probably because you’re sucked into how fascinating all things astrology are concerned and you’re eager to learn more about what YOUR zodiac sign has to say about your anxiety and what triggers it. Maybe after reading through this, you’ll have a better understanding of your emotions, or maybe even by reading about the signs of your loved ones you can learn how to better support them or avoid making them feel anxious!
Here they are in all their glory.
1. Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
You don’t think life can function without you properly. You’re always go, go, go even when you’re not feeling like yourself. It often causes you to feel overwhelmed and stressed about the tasks you struggle to accomplish. Give yourself a break, life will continue to move forward without you. You don’t have to always be the superhero.
2. Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
You fear messing up too much; you stress yourself out about missing deadlines or not making it to a meeting on time. You fear making people upset and you make yourself sick over people being mad at you or not thinking you’re good enough. Things will work out, just trust. You often make the problems much worse than they actually are in your head.
3. Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
You let the little things get to you and it causes you a lot of stress. You would benefit by mind calming activities to stop you from screaming at the person who pulled out in front of you on the road or from thinking someone is stupid for pronouncing a word wrong.
4. Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
Your anxiety goes through the roof when you feel unsafe. Walking alone at night makes your heart feel like it’s in your stomach. But you also can’t take criticism or people staring at you, it all makes you extremely anxious. Don’t repress your emotions, breathe and tell people what’s on your mind. You need reassurance to feel a little better.
5. Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Anytime you’re not in control of a situation you fill with anxiety. You need to know that things will work out even if you’re not constantly behind the wheel controlling every decision you’re involved in. Sometimes you just need to cut yourself a break from worrying and just follow along to someone else’s plan.
6. Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Your trigger is overthinking. You think way too much and you’re your own worst nightmare when it comes to causing your anxiety. You overthink most decisions and freak yourself out, but once you start doing it you are okay. You need to trust more that things will be okay, write things down and don’t always assume the worst.
7. Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
You like things fair, anything you feel is unfair completely stresses you out. You tend to overthink the pros and cons of situations instead of acting in the moment, you need to breathe and just respond in the moment, instead of sitting on things for hours rushing through all the different scenarios in your mind.
8. Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
Not having enough privacy or quiet makes you anxious. You need your space and you hate it when people don’t respect that, it makes you feel tense and nervous. You just want everyone to respect your boundaries.
9. Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
Conforming to society stresses you out the most. You hate being told how to behave, dress or act. You don’t like deadlines or sitting in traffic. You can become extremely restless and it causes you a lot of anxiety.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
You are the root of your anxiety. You put way too much pressure on yourself and set strict deadlines for yourself. You feel frustrated if you don’t meet them. Stop thinking about the “what ifs” and live in the now.
11. Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
If things aren’t your way you get anxiety over it. You try to clarify things and you get stressed by time, easily. You try to do too much at once, you need to slow down and relax. Sometimes things won’t go your way, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong or isn’t going to work out.
12. Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Feeling overexposed makes you anxious. You hate public speaking and it makes you stressed, just like big crowds and too many people in your area. You can make yourself sick over the invasion of personal space, but it will all be okay. Just breathe through it. /by Elana Share
