Anxiety And Stress Triggers Zodiac weheartit

Everybody has certain things that trigger their anxiety, but what about the specific stressors for each zodiac sign? Find out what triggers your stress and how you can deal with it.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries are a dynamic people — until their energy runs out. When ill or feeling down, stress can build up. Remember, you're not a superhero. No one expects you to save the world. Take time to relax.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taurus wants to be seen as fully competent, so they take their time to do it right the first time. An ultimate source of stress is failure, so remember that failure happens to all of us. It helps us grow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini doesn't suffer the fool, there's no doubt about that. Gemini feels stressed out when people are being, well ... kind of stupid. But it's vital to remember that you need to breathe and try not to get mad. That anger compounds your stress.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Not feeling secure is what stresses out Cancers so much. When you're defeated, you tend to engage in angry outbursts. Don't swallow your feelings — let it come. But be constructive, too. Breathe deeply and know you're secure in yourself.


Leo (July 23-August 22)

Not being in control is the stressful trigger for the Leo. Losing things or things not working really grind your gears. Just remember, sometimes you have to let go and let things happen the way they do. You'll be happier for it.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgo, not to be a jerk or anything, but you think too much. It's a good thing thinking isn't deadly. Your biggest source of stress is not being able to organize these thoughts. Make lists. I use spreadsheets to keep track of my day to day tasks. But just writing things down is a relief for you.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Libra doesn't like to be treated unfairly. Who does? Libra tends to spend too much time thinking about whether or not to confront unfair people. Instead of getting bogged down, simply talk about it in the moment. Just don't do it with anger.


Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio may seem like a scorpion, sharp pinchers with a dangerous sting on the outside, but on the inside, Scorpio is sensitive. Scorpio can feel tense and nervous without privacy. Make sure you take time for yourself.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius is a zodiac on the move. You hate sitting still and you hate situations where you have to act all proper-like. To break out of that, have a little wild time. Go for a crazy night out or get into some physical activity.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn, you're too demanding of yourself. Stress for you is not living up to your demands for yourself. Find joy in each moment of your life, even if some of those moments seem like a real bummer.


Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquarius really needs to have it their way. You find yourself frustrated if you don't get what you want for no good reason. Take time to understand that that's just the way life is. Take a deep breath and move on.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)


Pisces, like Scorpio, is the ultimate private zodiac. Public speaking and feeling exposes is most stressful for you. These things are often part of life, so take on the attitude that this too shall pass and make some alone time for yourself.
