How You Deal When Sh*t Hits The Fan, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

We all have our own ways of coping.

Zodiac Sign Depression Astrology TheGuardian

Every now and then we all feel like everything is just crashing down around us. It seems like when the worst things happen, they all pile up at once, leaving us exhausted and exasperated.

Feeling drained and wondering what else could possibly go wrong, we all have a variety of different ways we deal with these difficult situations. 

Some of us are able to look at the bright side of things and recognize that there's always a silver-lining in any unfortunate situation. But, not everyone is like that. There are also those of us who would rather wallow in our own self-pity rather than try to move on to bigger and better things.


When sh*t hits the fan it can be really hard to keep a level head about things — whether we're being carried away by positivity or negativity. Either way, we're not exactly in our right minds. 

It's hard to maintain a clear head when everything starts crumbling down, but we do the best we can to get through it — even if it isn't always the best way.

Depending on our zodiac signs, we all have our own reactions and ways of dealing with things when our world begins to fall apart. Check out what your sign says about how YOU deal when disaster strikes.

6Virgo: (August 23-September 22)

Virgo Zodiac Sign Astrology

You are constantly overthinking your every move — and everyone else’s for that matter. When you spend so much time questioning everything that’s done and said, it can be hard to remain positive 100% of the time.

When that Negative Nelly comes out in you, though, you ALWAYS resort to your inner clean freak. Anytime you want to take your mind off things, there’s no better way for you than to throw yourself into a messy project!

So you just put your life on pause and head for the great outdoors to clear your head. Nothing like a little fresh air to make you think clearer.

Your jealousy has a way of getting in the way of the good things in your life. It’s ruined relationships of yours in the past and even continues to still.

9Sagittarius: (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign Astrology

You HATE feeling as though you are constrained or being forced against your will. It makes you feel claustrophobic and that pressure builds up until you just can’t take it anymore.

Then the only way for you to relieve that pressure is to let loose and get away from whatever it is that is constraining you – whether that means it’s time for you to take a trip or just cut certain people out of your life.

10Capricorn: (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn Zodiac Sign Astrology

You HATE to be wrong. Being the know-it-all of the group gives you a sense of purpose and dignity, but when someone proves their intelligence over yours, sh*t goes downhill quick.

Lucky for you, you can run to your family and spend a little quality time listening to them tell you how great you still are — totally negating the feeling of being lesser.

11Aquarius: (January 20-February 18)

Aquarius Zodiac Sign Astrology

You have a problem settling and meeting people halfway. Because of this issue, you tend to get disappointed fairly easily when things don’t always go your way. If that happens too much all at once, disaster is imminent.

But the good news is, you have so many friends who just love to have a good time that you can easily blow off steam with one of them if another leaves you high and dry.

Pisces Zodiac Sign Astrology

You are a really sensitive person and it’s not the hardest thing in the world to make you upset. Things that other signs in astrology wouldn’t think twice about actually make you really sad.

That being said, it can leave you feeling highly emotional and down on yourself. The surefire way for you to lift your spirits back up is to just cut your losses and get some sleep. You know you ALWAYS feel better after a good night’s rest and the start of a new day!
