Are you wildly confident, insecure, or somewhere in between?

Confidence, as a word, has many different meanings. There’s self-confidence when you have a deep belief in yourself and your actions. When you’re self-confident, you come off as being self-assured in many kinds of settings. You know what you want and how to get it or, at least, that’s how you appear.

There’s having confidence in others. You trust that when somebody says that they’re going to do something, they’ll come through and when they have a dilemma, they’ll make the right decision.

Some people believe that things happen for a reason, and they sometimes will check their horoscope to make sure. In other words, they have confidence that the universe isn’t as random as it appears. It’s the “one door closes, another one opens” philosophy of life. They don’t get discouraged when it looks as if things aren’t going their way because they’re hopeful that something positive will come from the negative.

You can be confident that change is a good thing and that as we change, we are growing and learning. You might think that rearranging the furniture in the living room or shaking up your routine is healthy and helps to keep you stimulated. It’s helpful to have confidence in knowing that it’s going to be okay — that ultimately, we’re all going to be okay and that we’ll get through the tough and challenging times.

As with confidence, we can be insecure about many things. We may have the opposite of self-confidence and be highly doubtful of our abilities or our talents. We may not feel that we can trust other people to do the right thing for others, and not just themselves. We may fear change and question why bad things happen to good people.

No one is 100 percent confident or insecure; most of us have a lot of one and a little of the other. Here are the most insecure zodiac signs, as well as the most confident, ranked from most insecure to least.

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are super-sensitive and tend to take everything way too personally. When your happiness or feelings of self-esteem rest on somebody else, you don't have that inner strength that you need to have to be confident. They're overly emotional, clingy, and extremely needy, all of which fall under the insecure umbrella. It's really a shame that they're so insecure as they tend to be wonderful and caring people.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Since Virgos are so critical of themselves, they think other people are as hypercritical as they are and it can be damaging to their self-esteem. They worry a lot about whether they're making a good impression or if they've done something horribly embarrassing at a social function.

The self-appraisal that they're constantly doing chips away at the foundation of their confidence and causes them to definitely have some major insecure moments, making them one of the most insecure zodiac signs. They don't trust their instincts and are often beating themselves up for self-perceived mistakes and flaws.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras don't want any trouble, so they have to be passionate about something in order to stand up for it, and championing causes or people is usually the only time that Libras are straight-out confident. They want to be liked, and they're not sure that if they voiced their opinions and stood up for themselves they would be.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

One thing about Pisces is that they tend to be easily led. If they were confident and strong with their convictions, they'd stand up for themselves more often and say "no" whenever they needed to, but they lean more towards insecurity than confidence. They are, however, confident when it comes to their imagination or sharing their creativity. If they paint something or take a photograph, they know it's good and want to share it.

5. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns land somewhere in the middle between those who are confident and those who are insecure. If they're in the middle of a project or there's an issue in regard to their work, they're extremely confident, but when it comes to interpersonal or romantic interactions, they tend to be more introverted and insecure. Capricorns tend to hide their insecurity behind a wall and come off as hard-hearted or strange when, in reality, they're just not confident in their social skills.

6. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

How confident or insecure a Gemini is feeling really depends on their mood. They can be extremely confident at parties — chatting up strangers, being the consummate guest, or being the tie that brings people together. But when they're in a situation that's outside their comfort zone, they may doubt their abilities and can feel uncomfortable and apprehensive. They just need to look at every situation as a social event and then they'll believe in their abilities kill it.

7. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus individuals have confidence in their taste and style. They know how to look good and how to make their house look good too. You can't change a Taurus' mind about something, so they're wildly confident that they're going to win any argument or any battle. However, their confidence can hide a deep insecurity but that's usually buried so deep no one can see it.

8. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The line between detachment and confidence is hard to decipher with an Aquarius. They seem to have a lot of confidence... or is it that they just don't care that much? Aquarians try to float above any negativity or tension, even if they caused it. Generally, they feel confident that whatever drama everyone else is going through, they're not a part of it.

9. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is very honest with themselves. They know they look good or are smart but they also are aware of any weaknesses or flaws they might have, they just have the ability to embrace those things and to look at them as pluses. Sure, they can get overly attached to someone but that just means they're passionate. They're confident that they're where they need to be and whatever they do is exactly what they should be doing. Most of all, Scorpios are confident in the bedroom — that's where they rule and they're convinced that when it comes to sex, nobody does it better than they do.

10. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries individuals know how incredible they are and when you say that to them, they'll agree with you. Well, why would they lie? They're confident, energetic, and adventurous and when you're with an Aries, you can get swept up in their positive and radiant energy. They have tremendous confidence that they'll be able to win you over if you're not initially a fan.

11. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius can talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything. They're on a quest to learn whatever they can about the world and themselves and if someone has a criticism to give them, they're totally open to it. They have the confidence to get feedback and actually use it to improve themselves. If someone tries to insult them, they just turn it into a joke and laugh about it. It's hard to bring a Sagittarius down or shake their self-esteem.

12. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos exudes confidence. They don't shy away from the spotlight; in fact, they want to be front and center. They know without a doubt that they have all the answers and that they know the best thing to do at all times. Theirs is a natural confidence and because it's so much a part of them, they don't even notice it much. They don't worry about if they'll make a great first impression or if they'll do the right thing — they know they will. The inner mantra of Leos is "I got this."
