Zodiac, Self

You wouldn't know it by looking at him.

Fear: we’ve all experienced it, and to some degree, we all have it our lives. When we keep our fears to ourselves we often give it more power over us than when we share our fears with others. We don’t want people to know our fears because it makes us vulnerable to them and gives them the opportunity to use our fears against us, and depending on what your horoscope says, you don't know how they will react.

Fear is a very powerful emotion. Some people suggest that being aware of a fear and then not letting it influence you in any way is the best course of action: feel the fear and do it anyway. There are those who adapt and change their lives so that they don’t have to encounter their fear in any way, but avoidance isn’t always the answer.

Watch the video below for the most committed zodiac signs:

You could just stomp down your fears and not deal with them. But when you keep your fears within, they can grow stronger until they cause us to behave in a strange way.

Your friends may be confused as to why you never want to leave your house because they’re unaware of the fear you have of being outside. Or, maybe you’re scared that if you go somewhere you’ll spend too much money and be left destitute. When we face our fears head-on, we often feel lighter and better by doing so. No matter how easy just facing one’s fears may sound, it can be exceedingly difficult.

We want to be open with our loved ones and we want them to feel comfortable enough with us to tell us everything but it doesn't always work out that way and we must figure out for ourselves what’s troubling them. And astrology can tell us a lot about humans and their personalities. They sometimes can give us a key to what’s going on with someone.

Here are the zodiac signs that won't commit and his secret fear that's holding him back.​

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He's afraid he's never going to get it together and grow up. He has many ideas about things he wants to do and accomplish but he has too many and they get in his way. He needs to narrow things down so he can focus on one thing at a time instead of having all this frenetic energy causing him to bounce from partner to partner and project to project.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

He's afraid that if he doesn't stand his ground at all times, people are going to walk all over him. This is why he's so stubborn and won't give anybody an inch. He needs to see that his inflexibility is a detriment to himself and that it actually is what causes him to stall and not move forward. He needs to trust his instincts about people, because most of the time, he's correct that they're trustworthy and supportive, not out to get him.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

He's afraid that he's got everybody fooled and that if they investigated further, they'd see that he was all just smoke and mirrors, that there's no substance or quality to him. He needs to trust that he's enough and that, in the end, he's a really good guy and someone who does their best by people.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He's afraid that nothing will ever work out and that no one is ever what they seem. Yes, he can be a bit pessimistic but it's just because he's usually the one who is more into a relationship than their partner is. He's trying to steel himself against the next (inevitable) romantic tragedy that's coming his way.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He's afraid that he'll never get his due and he'll end up under the radar. Lack of attention is like death for a Leo and no matter how much they get, they still crave more. He could be an entire room's focus and he'd still think that his partner wasn't giving him enough attention. He needs to relax; everybody is fascinated by him and he usually achieves everything he goes after.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He's afraid he'll never get it right — he'll never solve the riddle, be the person he's meant to be, or feel comfortable wherever he is. He wants to be perfect, and if not perfect, then at least adequate. But he feels as if he always comes short. He really needs to lower his expectations of others and himself and know that there's beauty in imperfection.

He's terrified of making the wrong decision and the consequences that could come from it. He doesn't like feeling that something he does could affect others in an adverse way. He can't take the pressure. He doesn't want to seem weak so he'll decide things but he wishes that someone else could do it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

His secret fear is that someone close to him will betray him. I know it sounds very dramatic like an opera or an episode of Game of Thrones but Scorpios are dramatic people. You're either with him or against him and there's no middle ground. If you feel sorry that you betrayed him, keep your apologies to yourself because he doesn't do forgiveness.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

He's scared of being tied down. Sagittarius is one of the zodiac signs that won't commit to any relationship. He needs to be able to roam about the world as he wishes and he's afraid that he'll never find a partner who will be cool with him taking off for parts unknown at a moment's notice. He doesn't realize that committing to someone or something doesn't narrow your life, it expands it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

His secret fear is that he hasn't invested or put away enough money and that, one day, he'll find himself in financial straits. Having a strong financial foundation and saving money is very important to him, so the thought of not having enough money or losing money scares the crap out of him.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

His secret fear is that he's being underestimated. He's constantly working and coming up with new ideas but he's not sure he's getting all the appreciation and support that he deserves. He doesn't think that he should have to be the one pointing out everything that he's doing. It's obvious that he's a genius so where's all the recognition and praise?

He's scared that he'll never really belong. Since he has a unique way of looking at the world, he's afraid that in some ways, he'll always be an outsider and will never truly fit in. He's very creative and imaginative but he's afraid that he comes off as a crazy artist type.
