In order to conquer your depression using astrology, first you have to learn about your zodiac sign, horoscope and natal chart. Then, you will see how the changes you go through during depressive episodes. 

More emotional and sensitive signs like the Virgo and Pisces are more susceptible to falling into a depressive episode and having no means of pulling themselves out.

Knowing what triggers your depressive episodes is the first step in making sure you avoid them. Look deeper into your astrology sign and find out what depression might feel like for you. Recognizing the signs is the best way to get out of a depressive episode before it starts.

Also, realize when things are bad so you can get them back to normal. Dealing with depression is hard. Make sure you talk to someone and know that it will get better.

Here is how each zodiac sign feels and experiences depression symptoms, by horoscope, per astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The Aries are very social people. They crave being around people and being the center of attention. Being alone and being ignored can throw them into a spiral of feeling lonely and like they are lacking validation from others. 

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

If you notice yourself in a rut or becoming stagnant in your area of work, you may be heading toward depression. Feelings of boredom and a lack of motivation are the opposite of the usually very driven Taurus. Feeling like you don't want to do anything is a sure sign that things are heading South. 

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Gemini will always look okay. They will continue on in their daily life but once they are alone at night it hits them. If you dread going home to be on your own or find yourself constantly out and keeping yourself busy instead of relaxing or being home, it's a sign of depression.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Have you stopped paying attention to your physical appearance lately? Not doing your makeup when you usually do it every day, or wearing leggings and sneakers when you're used to heels and dresses? Feeling like you don't care about your looks or that getting dressed isn't worth it are what a Cancer will feel like during a depressive episode.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo's can feel deserted and lost when experiencing depression. If something has fallen out of their control they can get an overwhelming sense of loss and start to feel like their life is falling apart. 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

When the Virgo is experiencing depression they begin to question everything in their life. They will over think and turn everything they are going through into a  negative experience. Pessimistic thoughts will start to run your life when dealing with an episode. 

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Much like the Leo, the Libra will feel like their life is out of control. Even if it's just one aspect of your life, negative thoughts will have you thinking that everything is falling apart. Intense anxiety will also accompany your depression, which is the worst. 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Feelings of fear and anxiety will overrun your life when you are experiencing depression. Remember to live in the moment and not look forward with fear, but with excitement for what is to come.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You may find solace in being alone, but too much alone time can be bad for you. During a depressive episode, you might find yourself questioning if you have any real friends or if you're going to be alone forever. Just know that these are intrusive thoughts and everything is not as bad as it seems. 

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

As a Capricorn myself, when I'm feeling depressed I lose all motivation. You might experience what feels like extreme fatigue, but is actually just a black cloud following you around. Push yourself to do at least one productive thing a day to avoid getting sucked too deep into your depression.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Being in a low place is definitely not what you're used to. You will feel weak, and like you've been knocked off your rightful place of the totem pole. Feelings of helplessness will also accompany your depression, making it feel even harder to overcome. 

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The most emotional sign. You might be feeling extra sensitive and like you don't have the support of your family. Missing them more than usual, as well as close friends, will definitely be a part of a depressive episode. Reach out to them and remind yourself you aren't alone.
