We're all guilty of checking our horoscope to see what kind of games astrology is playing in our lives. But your zodiac sign reveals more than what's going on in your day. It also plays a role in determining how you react to what's going on around you. And sometimes, our reactions surface in the form of anxiety. 

The world is full of anxiety triggers — an overcrowded room, full schedule, empty bank account. But what stresses one person out might not affect the next person at all. 


So what is it that gets to you?  Find out what causes anxiety for your zodiac sign.
