We can’t have a good day every day. The bad ones are bound to come along, and sometimes they come along quite often.

We can stay strong and hold our heads high, work through the pain and the emotions, and act like nothing concerned us. But, that is extremely hard to do and just not possible to do in every situation — especially when we're dealing with what feels like the lowest, hardest points in our lives.


So sometimes we crawl into bed, hug our knees to our chest, and go to our dark places.

What happens in our dark place? Well just about anything. We experience hate, resentment, betrayal, there are tears, there might even be screaming.

Scary, right?


Okay maybe its not always that gruesome and extreme, but it feels that way on the inside. When I’m upset, other people notice. I completely shut down

Honestly, it’s only natural to have these types of reactions. So while we all go through a range of emotions during this time, while we’re in our darkest of times, their are certain emotions that each zodiac sign will definitely experience.



Want to be able to tell when you’re in your own dark place? Or want to be more aware if someone important to you may feel they are going through their darkest of times?

Read on to see exactly what emotion each astrological sign will experience, and how they deal with their own depression.

1Aries (March 21- April 19)

Aries zodiac sign depression hard times

During her darkest of times, Aries feels completely frustrated. Naturally, she enjoys competition and coming in first and when she is at her lowest, these tend to be things she isn't doing.

And if she is somehow still coming in first, she’s not enjoying it. She is frustrated to be at odds with her natural self and her emotions.  


2Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus zodiac sign depression hard times

Taurus becomes completely insecure during her darkest times.

Normally, she is powerful and feels that she has absolute control over everything in her life. Well clearly something has gone wrong leaving her confused as to who she is and insecure about it all.

During these times of insecurity, don't be surprised if she starts pulling away from the people closest to her.


3Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini zodiac sign depression hard times

It is easy to tell when Gemini is in her darkest of times because she clearly feels lost.

She is normally extremely sociable, always found out and about surrounded by friends. When something is going wrong, she tends to retreat away from others and inside herself.

But when she secludes herself she is lost without her friends. So if you see this, make sure to find a way to let her know you're sticking around.


4Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer zodiac sign depression hard times

One of Cancer’s biggest dislikes is sharing too much of her personal life. So when just a little too much is leaked, she considers this a devastating blow to her life.

She feels lonely, like there is no one to turn to or talk to. She will keep to herself when she's depressed, and she doesn't like others to see her so hurt.

But, this obviously adds to her overall feeings of loneliness. 

5Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo zodiac sign depression hard times

During Leo’s hard points in her life, she is just so confused. How did her life get to this?

She is always so aware of all of her actions, making sure she only receives the best and most desirable outcomes.

So how did she get herself into this situation? She will probably remain confused for a long time, and will not turn to anyone else to help her figure it out.


6Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo zodiac sign depression hard times

When something goes wrong, it really affects Virgo. The thing is, though, she knows that life still has to go on.

So when Virgo is in her darkest of times, she becomes completely overwhelmed. How can she deal with what is going on, her emotions about it, and continue to go on with work and other tasks and not let it affect her? 

This can lead to a lot of anger and resentment.

7Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra zodiac sign depression hard times

Honestly, in her darkest of times, Libra is absolutely heartbroken. But who wouldn't be?

Whatever happened was completely out of the blue, it didn't go as planned, which is something she's NEVER comfortable with.

She is allowed to be upset, she is allowed to be heartbroken. Really, it’s only natural.

So don't think about telling her to get over it, she will take her time and will get better when she does. 


8Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio zodiac sign depression hard times

During her darkest of times, you can find Scorpio being sad. Which is totally understandable, might I add.

Scorpio is extremely passionate, so when something happens that hurts her she will react accordingly.

She will be sad, she will probably cry, but then she will get better. She wont always be sad - it's not in her nature. But she deals with her depression by lashing out at the people closest to her.

9Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius zodiac sign depression hard times

Sagittarius is known for promising more than she can often deliver. She wants to give everyone all that she can, she just cares so much.

So if something goes wrong, if everything comes crashing down, if someone is disappointed, she feels at fault. And that can be pretty devastating to her.

She really did the best that she could have, but she’s so hard on herself. She goes into her dark place where she’ll continuously remind herself she is at fault, until her friends come and cheer her up. 


10Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn zodiac sign depression hard times

When she’s in her hard times of her life, Capricorn just feels absolutely exhausted.

She spent a good time freaking out as she watched thing spiral out of control right in front of her eyes. Now that the mess has pretty much settled around her, she is tired.

Give her some time, she’ll be better soon enough.

11Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius zodiac sign depression hard times

Unfortunately, when Aquarius feels she is in her darkest of times, she just feels pathetic.

For starters, she is super hard on herself on a good day. On a bad day she just won't give herself a break.

She wonders why she didn't do more, wonders how she let things get so out of hand, maybe she wonders why she wasn’t more responsible.

She is just going to need some time to come to terms with whatever has happened and learn to forgive herself.


12Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces zodiac sign depression hard times

Is everyday the darkest of times for Pisces? Sometimes she just always feels like she’s going through a never-ending existential crisis.

It’s like a domino effect. One thing goes wrong, and for days she’s noticing every small detail that didn't go according to plan.

She really thinks the world is out to get her, and it can be really hard to pull her out of her funk. She needs someone who can be there for her - even if they can't SOLVE it for her.
