No one tells you how to handle the strength it takes to get up everyday and live another day.

Some days all you want to do is lay down and never think of another person. 

Other days, you’re constantly working through one activity to the next that you barely have time to think about how you’re feeling.

Maybe you're the type that puts a smile on your face no matter how sad you feel. 

Depression is also a big word we shouldn’t just throw around. It affects many people and comes in different forms.

Stereotypically we think of depressed people not getting out of bed and not talking to anyone or eating little to nothing.

An Aries will fall into depression if they’re not given the attention they think they deserve. The need for validation can make them to be susceptible to depression.

If you’re an Aries that’s feeling a little blue, take a step back and recognize how wonderful you are on your own.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Lack of physical intimacy can cause a Taurus to feel unwanted. They get their positive energy from being able to feel a person. People under this sign have a tendency to value physical presence over all else. They aren’t likely to experience depression so long as they can be with people they care about.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

This zodiac sign will feel depression if they’re left with their own thoughts. They are constantly on the go that the moment they’re faced with silence, it’s almost deafening.

They can easily fall into depression as they also feed off the emotions of others. If other people feel blue so will they.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Those under this sign are most likely to fall under some sort of depression. They’re so attached to people that they are also in tune with how everyone feels all at once.

They also yearn for happier times so often when they’re depressed, they will think back to a time where everything seems better.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos need control so more than likely they won’t fall into depression. The control they have in their life in very solid.

They know how they’re feeling and will process anything they are harboring.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

A Virgo isn’t likely going to understand that they’re feeling depressed in the first place. They’re very analytical and logical.

What they feel will most likely be chalked up to an odd phenomenon. This doesn’t mean that they don’t feel blue they just don’t understand it.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Lack of control over every aspect of life will cause a Libra to become depressed. This means depression can fall quite easily over someone under this sign.

The moment a Libra feels not at the helm of their life ship, they’ll become sad and anxious.  

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio’s ability to shield themselves from the world will make it hard to detect their depression.

They’re likely to go through this if haunting thoughts of death and endings creep into their mind.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

A Sagittarius can fall into depression easily especially when they’re alone too often. Granted they love their alone time.

It’s the realization that they feel as though no one has their back in this world. Sociable creatures that become overwhelmed by loneliness.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Although a Capricorn has probably hated everything at least once in their lifetime, they don’t fall into depression as easily as other signs.

This is because they know what it’s like to feel disinterest in something without it being a personal attack. It’s just the way they are.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Those who fall under the Aquarius sign are more vulnerable to depression because of the way they care so much about others’ feelings and well-being.

If someone disagrees with them, this can also cause a rift in their self relationship.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are prone to depression because they feel everyone’s critiques at them. They take everything personally and it can be a detriment to a Pisces’ self-esteem.

Their emotions tend to come and go in waves. One minute they may feel depressed but they are sure to bounce back.
