7 Zodiac Signs That Just Can't Handle Stress Without Freaking Out

Time to take a chill pill.

when stress is too much

So, here's the deal. We all deal with stress and anxiety very differently than some other people, but some of us may just have that excessive amount of stress that we can't handle.

Some of our friends and family may refer to us as "worry warts" and make fun of us for being a little overbearing. I mean, it's not like we don't have legitimate stress to worry about, but some of us may take that to a WHOLE new level when stress becomes too much.


Each and every person in this world has their own anxiety and stress triggers that speak to them, and only them. It's safe to say ALL of us deal with these stresses in our own ways, but not all of us have the same level of tolerance toward these situations.

But why do we all react so differently? Well, look no further than your zodiac sign to help explain why. The stars can tell you a lot about how you handle certain situations (some of us with grace, others, well, not so much).

Here are 8 of the most STRESS-PRONE zodiac signs, so you can finally figure out why you're such a freakin' worry wart! But don't worry, there's PLENTY of time to turn around your worrisome ways.


Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Although we can accredit Aries for being so dynamic and versatile, it is obvious that she tends to change when she runs out of fuel. When she feels like she doesn't have a handle on things, she spirals out of control.

It's like, when a situation does not go her way or to her liking, she CANNOT get over it, and she's probably no longer willing want to hang out and chill the rest of the night.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Although Gemini tends to be very careful, sociable and responsible, I'd advise anyone to NOT be around her when stress enters her life. As quickly as she can think on their feet, she becomes extremely indecisive and insecure.


Her nerves stem from not having done the right thing and living up to her perfectionist ways. I don't know how you feel, but being a perfectionist dealing with stress is NOT a good combo.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo has a LOT of good traits that should be admired. For example, her attention to detail and methodological approach to life usually sets her up for immediate success.


However, with the amount of success she can attain, she also can't help but be critical of everyone else, ESPECIALLY herself. She often pushes people away because she does this, and spins herself in circles when she's feeling out of control.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)


Libra is known for her peaceful, logical and even-keeled ways. However, insert some stress and anxiety ... and it's a WHOLE different ballgame.

Although she seems like she's cooperating, do NOT be fooled. A Libra will hold resentment and a hard grudge toward you for, well, probably forever. She tends to be overly trusting, so when somebody breaks that trust, there's hell to pay!

BUT, she'll do this in a very quiet and subtle way. She's deathly afraid of confrontation, but inside, she's burning up.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


Scorpio is a true friend. She's passionate, assertive and extremely loyal. It's not hard to get on her good side, as she's a super resourceful and positive person.

However, when she feels something's wrong or doesn't know how to deal with something, she becomes secretive. She becomes SUPER passive aggressive and can grow to be extremely jealous. So when she's stressed about something (say, your relationship or your friendship, or maybe even just how much work she needs to get done) she's not the most rational, (or safest) under pressure.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)


Aquarius has a LOT on her brain; she's an intellect, a deep thinker and most DEFINITELY an over analyzer. This both a blessing and a curse.

Her intellect enhances her social skills, and she's a great problem solver. But the thoughts that run so deep don't flow over well when it comes to stress.

She tends to modify her emotional expression because she finds reasons for her OWN reaction to be wrong, yet this makes her become even angrier. She becomes extremely temperamental, completely uncompromising and pretty aloof. It's best to keep your distance until she figures this one out on her own.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Although Pisces is someone we don't ever question because we know she is undoubtedly selfless, this can be her disadvantage as well. She often becomes (or at least plays) the victim, even when nobody was involving her. Ultimately, when people start taking advantage of her, she breaks under pressure. 


She may be quiet and thoughtful now, but there IS a breaking point, and once Pisces has reached it, it's time to step back. 

Eventually, though, she'll come back to her sweet self. Maybe a bit more jaded (and maybe even a little bitter), but still sweet as ever.
