They're extremely tense and apprehensive.

"Jittery" is defined as nervous, tense, or unable to relax. You might be jittery on a blind date or waiting to get information such as a test score, a medical diagnosis, or watching the last few minutes of a game. This can come out in bursts of energy, so you fidget or you feel like you’re on pins and needles.

It’s very challenging to relax when you’re feeling this way, no matter how you try to calm yourself with deep breathing, stretching, or exercise. And in astrology, there are some jittery zodiac signs who may be jumpy, apprehensive, stressed, restless, anxious, and on edge.


Being jittery is just one way that our bodies express tension and stress, and is no way a sign of weakness. When someone is tense, it can be very difficult to distract them from the thing that’s making them like this. 

Jitteriness is a symptom of stress and it expels a whole lot of energy. When the person is no longer feeling jittery, they may feel exhausted and in need of sleep; the body needs to recover and regroup.


1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

People born under the sign of Aries have a lot of energy, and when it's nervous energy, they're jittery. If they are forced to sit still and wait for news, or something is happening that they have no control over, that nervous energy will be expelled in various ways: foot tapping, clenching their fists, or tearing paper.

Aries are used to getting their excess energy out by moving and being physical.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians get jittery because they don't have any patience. If they want answers, they want them immediately and they don't like feeling as if they're stuck somewhere.


Their jitteriness is expressed in the way that they try to push things to get a result, and it often doesn't solve the problem. Sagittarians will get tactless and blunt when they don't feel they have everything under control, which just makes things worse.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can get very jittery when it comes to their emotional well-being. If they're forced to wait for a confirmation of the emotional kind and they have no creative outlet, they'll get jittery.

A Pisces will try to do something to escape the tension, but usually, they'll only make themselves more anxious. Pisces can be overly sensitive, so when they feel jumpy, restless, or stressed they can get extremely emotional.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

When a Gemini feels overwhelmed by their own life, they'll get jittery and their attention span will lessen. They won't be able to concentrate, and nothing will be able to hold their interest.

A Gemini who is feeling jittery will get up, sit down, pace, walk around, and look for something to distract them. It's very difficult for them to just wait calmly and they will feel uncomfortable in their own skin.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

When an Aquarian gets jittery, their ensuing behavior may be impossible to predict — every Aquarius handles their nervousness or personal unquiet differently.


The one thing they probably won't do is have an emotional meltdown, especially since their go-to is to detach from a stressful situation and put their mind elsewhere.
