How Likely You Are To Have Body Image Issues According to Your Zodiac Sign

Everyone has body image issues on occasion.

It’s the biggest downfall of living in a society that puts such a high focus on beauty and being attractive.

However, depending on your astrological zodiac sign, you may be more likely than others to experience issues with body image.

Let’s get real, everyone suffers from body image issues sometimes. It’s part of what makes us human.

We have doubts, we have insecurities and, somewhere deep inside our self-obsessed minds (AKA: our very human minds), we just want everyone to think we’re hotter than heck, the pinnacle of beauty and without flaws of any kind (if only, right?).

But regardless of this desire, we all struggle to accept our flaws and embrace body positivity (especially women).

Body positivity is very important though for all zodiac signs. Positive thinking about our bodies is just as important to our health as exercise and eating right.

Heck, it could be argued that it is actually MORE important!

I mean, really? You have to be in the right head space in order to get the proper motivation to take care of that beautiful body of yours! Work it, girl!

Having said all of this, I think it’s important to address our issues with body positivity all while striving to reverse the negativity associated with our horoscope and to start taking care of ourselves optimally, for the right reasons.

So, find your zodiac sign to see how likely you are to struggle with body image or body positivity , according to astrology.

And, always remember, all bodies are beautiful and you deserve to be healthy.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Everyone suffers from body image issues from time to time, but the Aries is far less likely than others to dwell on their imperfections for long. For the Aries, body image issues are more occasional passing thoughts rather than an actual struggle.

If they don’t like something about themselves, their determination will make them fix it. If it cannot be fixed, they’ll be quick to accept it as a reality and move on.

The Aries is one of the most likely of the zodiac signs to have a healthy balance between confidence and arrogance. Their optimistic nature make them look at all of their “imperfections” in a positive light.

In their eyes, they’re not “flat chested”, they’re thin; they’re not “chunky”, they’re healthy; they’re not “short”, they’re just not tall; etc. More often than not you will catch the Aries strutting confidently through life.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

The Taurus’s hatred for insecurities of any kind mean that they tend to deny that the have body image issues at all. But, like everyone else, if they were being honest with themselves, they would realize that they do have doubts about their bodies from time to time.

However, the Taurus’s practical, stable and patient nature make them look at their body image issues (i.e. their perceived flaws) as things that can be improved and, in the grand scheme of things, barely matter anyway.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

The Gemini’s inconsistent and indecisive nature tend to mean that they will go back and forth between confident as heck and self-conscious about everything about their bodies (sometimes, even on a day to day basis).

This means that the Gemini is likely to be caught dancing sexy one minute and then second guessing everything after reading an article in their favorite magazine.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

The Cancer is one of the most likely of the zodiac signs to struggle with body image issues. Their tendency towards insecurity mixed with their tendency towards a pessimistic demeanor mean that, more often than not, they are struggling with body image issues.

Cancer’s also tend to be quite sensitive and emotional, so on particularly bad self-esteem days, they are likely to be quite upset about it. Perhaps even upset to the point of tears.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leos, on the other hand, are one of the least likely to experience issues with body image. Quite the contrary actually, the Leo has a tendency to be quite self-confident, often to the point of arrogance.

Everyone has flaws, but the Leo’s stubborn, inflexible and lazy nature will usually make them unwilling (to the point of unable) to even see any of their flaws. Luckily for them though, the Leo is a very hard to resist personality, so most people wont be too turned off by their big headedness.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

The Virgo is quite likely to suffer from at least some issues with body image due to their tendency to pay attention to the smallest details, which make them notice every small “flaw”. Plus, they have a tendency to be a bit overly critical of themselves.

However, the Virgo’s practical and kind nature wont allow them to dwell on their perceived flaws for too long. They have more to worry about besides their flaws, anyway.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are basically like flipping a coin when it comes to body image issues. They could go either way pretty easily.

On the one hand, their dislike of conformity tends to make them view anything outside of the norm in a beautiful light. So, anything that makes them different (i.e. a traditional “flaw”) they can view as beautiful in it’s own way.

However, on the other hand, their indecisive nature will make them unable to decide whether or not they like their bodies.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

The Scorpio is pretty likely to suffer from body image issues, but only occasionally. Scorpios tend to suffer from issues believing others, which means that anytime they receive a compliment, they become suspicious.

This can lead to completely doubting the validity of the compliment, which CAN lead to doubting that part of their body as a whole.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

The Sagittarius is unlikely to suffer from body image issues due to their optimistic and enthusiastic nature.

However, on occasion the Sagittarius can become so obsessed with the idea of “perfection” that they begin to notice their flaws. BUT their great sense of humor is likely to make them laugh it off and put an optimistic spin on it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

The Capricorn’s tendency to expect the worst tends to mean that they are looking too far in the future to focus on the positives of their body in the present day.

For example, instead of enjoying their young bodies they are likely to be worried about things like stretch marks, wrinkles, greying hair, etc.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

The Aquarius’ tendency towards intellectual thought over superficial thought tends to mean that they don’t give enough thought to body image issues to really struggle with it too much.

And even if they did, their tendency to run away from emotional expression wouldn’t let anyone know about it.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

The Pisces know-it-all nature mixed with their hatred for criticism tend to mean that they will make up their own minds about their bodies without outside influence.

This makes the Pisces pretty 50/50 when it comes to body image issues. However, they are generally so busy helping others that it can be hard to notice even if they are struggling with self-doubts about their bodies.
