How To Deal With Stress And Anxiety, Per Your Zodiac Sign

The grind of daily life can stress us out to the point of panic and anxiety. Many things can trigger it, and we all have ways of handling the stress so we don't fall off the edge.

The key is discovering what triggers our daily stress and anxiety, and dealing with it in the best way possible. One way to figure this out is by looking at our zodiac signs, which determine our dominant personalities, strengths and weaknesses.

WNQ-Astrology shares the ways you can deal with your daily stress and anxiety. Give these solutions a try:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are enthusiastic. They dive into a task full-force with all their strength and energy. But they can also be short-tempered, so using up all that energy for some tasks makes them get frustrated at not getting things done. They need to take some time, an hour a day or a full day a week, to rest and do nothing. 

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus want things done their way. When they set their mind on something, they're stubborn, so they stress themselves out worrying over details. And if they happen to fail at finishing or resolving a task, they get upset and repeat it in their minds over and over again, thinking of what went wrong and how to fix it. What Taurus needs is to trust their instincts and know their own worth.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Energetic yet restless Geminis are prone to react instantly to little things that irk them. Since they're restless, they always need to be doing something and it stresses them out when they aren't. However, this can also sap out all their energy. What Gemini needs is a stress-relieving task to calm their minds like yoga or art.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are loyal and dependable, but secretly oversensitive and self-pitying. When someone criticizes, yells at, or ignores a Cancer, they won't show it, but they take it to heart and this stresses them out. They keep their feelings bottled up, so the best way to deal with this is by simply letting out their feelings to someone they trust.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Ambitious and loyal Leo has a pretentious and melodramatic side. They're used to being the leader, so they stress out when a situation is out of their control. The best way for Leos to deal with this is to simply step back and accept that it's out of their hands. 

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

The most analytical of the signs, Virgos are also some of the most skeptical. Just like Taurus, they tend to think too much and stress about things and situations they can't finish or fix. The best way to deal with this is to analytically think about the positive, rather than the negative.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

A Libra's idealism and sense of justice are some of their stronger assets, but also the most stressful. When they see injustice, they can either stew in their anger or lash out, both stressing them out even more. What Libras need to do is to take a deep breath; once they've relaxed, they should respond to the situation in a calm manner and with an open mind.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Passionate yet obsessive Scorpios tend to hide their feelings. Their independent nature drives them to prefer solitude to aggressively tackle their tasks. Thus, they aren't comfortable in most social situations, which can stress them out. The best way for Scorpio to handle this is by being open to their feelings and telling people what they need.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Among the signs, Sagittarius are the most independent and free-spirited. Staying put and not moving is the bane of their existence. Situations that require them to act in a certain manner also drive them insane. But Sagittarius can handle the stress of daily life by going out and indulging their adventurous side.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Like Leos, Capricorns are ambitious. They know their own worth and abilities, but this also means that they end up setting impossibly high standards for themselves. Not meeting these standards stresses them out. Capricorns should relax and think about what they have done, rather than what they could have. Live in the present, not in the past. 

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Witty and clever, Aquarians are the most rebellious of the signs. They want things done their way or no way, so they don't like being told what to do. At times, they're stressed out by how much they want to do with so little time. The best way to handle this stressful situation is to slow down and step back from a task for a bit. Relax before diving back in so you can focus more.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Devoted yet timid, Pisces is very self-pitying. When placed in a situation where they're open to judgment by other people, it stresses them out. They're very sensitive and being judged worries them greatly. Pisces can overcome this stress by adopting a "This too shall pass" attitude, and take some time to themselves to relax.
