How Your Body Reacts When You're Overly Stressed Out, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Zodiac Sign Stressed Out Symptoms

What stresses you out most? Stress happens to every person on the planet, and what you consider stressful involves unique characteristics you were born with found in your zodiac sign.

Not only that, some planetary energy shifts may impact how you respond to stress on any given day, at least, that's what astrology says.

It's a given, stressful situations are never planned but just inevitable in life. Overwhelm can happen at work: your boss assigns you a project, then another one, then another one. Oh, also could you write up all those reports by tomorrow? One hundred percent a stress starter. 

It can happen at home: You're working on some home improvement on the bathroom when all of the sudden a pipe burst. The bathroom floods and you are standing in a man-made lake in your own house. Stress sandwich right there. You won't know when it strikes. You only know that it's coming.

It can happen in relationships: perhaps you and your beau have an anniversary coming up. You mark the day but it somehow slips your mind. When you get home and walk into a candlelit dinner and a beautifully wrapped present your heart drops. You forgot to even get a card. Stress city, population one. 

Yes, we would all love to be as calm as Buddha for the rest of our lives but life is just not that easy. The curve balls we all get thrown every day is not something that can always be dodged.

Some people look to their horoscope, zodiac sign or ancient astrology to understand why their relationship has problems, so why not when you experience stress? If your zodiac sign and traits change with the flux of planet movement, wouldn't that impact any other situation or human relationship? Yes.

When we get stressed out we change in a way. Some of our worst qualities can be highlighted and magnified. We may even act completely different for a few days because of it.

CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)

Capricorn Zodiac Sign Stressed Out Symptoms

A Capricorn is normally prepared. But when stressed out they feel like they can't be, because they expect the worst. It's an automatic reaction to them when they get to that stress point. Every situation is already a loss and bad when they are in that mode.

Nothing is positive and they can feel like its meaningless. It's important for a Capricorn to recognize this if they want to snap out of that cycle. Bad things will happen whether we expect it or not. So might as well just roll with the punches as they come.

AQUARIUS (January 20- February 18)

Aquarius Zodiac Sign Stressed Out Symptoms

An Aquarius will run as fast as they can when they are stressed. Away from their emotions that is. If they could physically extract them and put them in a box they would. In their head, they ignore any emotion that is too much for them to handle.

When they feel that way everything is just a lot of them. They are pros at ignoring feelings and don't see a problem with it. They will eventually need to if they want to clear all that stress away.

PISCES (February 19- March 20)

Pisces Zodiac Sign Stressed Out Symptoms

A Pisces chooses to handle stress through indulgence. A whole box of donuts or an extensive online shopping bout for purses seems to be the cure right? Nope, wrong. And it's even worse if their stress binging involves things like alcohol or caffeine, which can be dangerous.

A Pisces needs to be conscious of those habits if they want to be able to overcome their stress. If they don't their bank account will go down and their sugar level probably up (too many donuts may not seem like it but eventually they are a bad idea).
