No matter how much you may try to avoid it, there’s always going to be change — it’s one of the few things we can count on in life. Rather than dreading change, it’s best to learn how to handle it and ride with the tide.

If you have the mindset that change is awful and you try to fight it, you will only make it worse. But if you look at change as positive and a chance for growth, you will have an easier time handling it.


Everybody handles change in their own way, and this is true for each of the zodiac signs as well. Knowing gow the zodiac signs deal with change can help you when you come into new situations in your life, including your relationships with your co-worker, family member, or partner.

For some people, the problem with change is that it threatens their sense of stability and makes them feel like they can never get secure footing. They need to realize there are changes that can firm up their foundation and make them feel even more grounded.

Those who are adaptable and take change in stride are also able to use it for their advantage. They’re able to see the possibilities that change brings about and they know that change is for the better. 


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It's rare for Aries to slow down enough to really let change sink in, but when they do, they tend to have a positive attitude about it. Aries likes change, and because of their adventuresome spirit, they are good at handling it.

If they got a new job or have been given notice they need to find a new place to live, Aries will see it as something that will benefit them in the long run, and they'll be enthusiastic about it.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus can get a little stuck in their ways. It most likely took them a minute to adjust to a former change so when another one happens they may be somewhat resistant.


They tend to like things the way they were and don't always see the need for change. Taurus will have to give a change a great deal of thought and sit with it before they can embrace. But they usually will get to the point where they not only accept, it but where they can see the benefits of change.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are the most versatile of the zodiac signs, so they love change. They not only do they handle well, they encourage it to happen.

Change is something that prevents Geminis from getting bored so they're all for it. In fact, their problem might be that they're almost too into change. Sometimes a slow change is better, but Gemini wants it to happen NOW.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers aren't exactly a big fan of change, especially when they've gotten used to something. Cancers like their routine, and they like knowing what to expect from the people around them and their day-to-day existence.

Cancers need to ease into a change, see it for what it is, and accept it the best that they can. Talking about their feelings about the change can help them a lot.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are best at the kind of change they have control over. If change is thrust upon them, they may be resistant at first.


However, Leos tend to face change head-on rather than trying to avoid it. Change can be challenging for them, but they're not the type to run away from it. Leos know they can't stop it from happening.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos may not love unexpected change and it can stress them out. While they know logically that change is inevitable and that in the long-run change can be beneficial, it's still difficult for it not to knock Virgo off their game.

If they can prepare for a change, they're able to handle it okay, but if it's a change that comes out of nowhere, it's going to take Virgo some time to process.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras like the fact that change shakes things up a bit and keeps them interesting. When change is good for the environment or people's lives, Libra is completely on board, but if it's something that affects them personally, they're not a fan of change.

If their favorite bagel shop goes out of business or their favorite TV show is canceled, they will practically go into mourning.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is another sign who is much more comfortable with change if it's in their control, but if it's not, it can cause them anxiety and make them feel out-of-balance.


What Scorpios need to do is focus on it and try to see it without any emotional implications. They tend to be mature and wise, and deep down they know change is going to happen whether they approve of it or not.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If Sagittarius was in control of the Universe, things would change all the time — they love change. Change is a very positive force for Sagittarius, and it keeps them excited and energized.

They may embrace change too much because they rely on it to keep them interested. When change doesn't happen fast enough, they'll help it along and instigate some kind of change.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are split on how they handle change — part of the time, they are initiators of change and will work to make great changes happen, and then there are the other times where their stubborn side holds onto more traditional ways.

Capricorns embrace change for the greater good, they just don't let it mess up their routine.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Since Aquarians are great innovators, they know that change must happen for things to get better and for wonders to happen, so they're good with it. If they get laid off, they'll just get a better job.

Aquarians are able to use logic in order to deal with change. With them, it's less about embracing change as it is accepting that it's part of the way the world works.
