It drives them crazy.

Being human isn't easy — we can all agree to that. What makes it so difficult for us at times is the fact that we are such vulnerable creatures; emotionally, we're either a mess or we've morphed our pain into some kind of stoic representation of a balanced mental state.

The truth is, we get hurt easily and we process our pain in different ways. And the zodiac signs with a fear of getting hurt sometimes find it tough to simply get through the day, while others find coping mechanisms and skills to make their lives tolerable. And if astrology is any indication, these signs have a way of making sure they don't feel any emotional turmoil.


And it's not to say that life is nothing but trial and tribulation, it's just that no one really gets away with having an easy life. We all pay in one way or another. You can be rich or poor, but at some point or another, you're going to get hurt, and you're going to feel that pain.

Knowing this, we anticipate hurt; we project it, we feel it before it even happens. Sometimes, we close off from the world just to avoid the vulnerability that will lead to emotional pain. And some of us are practically professional about the way we avoid getting hurt, all because we fear it. Some fear getting hurt to such a point that they avoid living a normal life; they live in a state of self-protection.


1. PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

Being highly dramatic people, Pisces looks for opportunities to be emotionally upset. This is the original "misery loves company" group, and despite the fact that they feel hurt exactly as everyone else does, the fear of being hurt is so great in Pisces that they actually seek it out, just to say they were right.

Pisces lives for pain and, in a way, they use their fear of being hurt as a lightning rod for finding as much of it as possible.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

When your ego is as big as Leo's is, you are like a bubble — the larger the bubble, the easier it is to pop. And Leo does not want that bubble to pop, because if it does, the hurt comes in big time.


Leo fears being hurt, because they rely so much upon approval and acceptance. They are so very trusting of people. They need people to love them, but they know themselves very well, and if that trust is broken, they crumble.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If you're a Sagittarius, then you've spent a good deal of time licking your wounds. You've allowed yourself to get hurt, and at some point, you get the lesson: don't open up so much! Don't let people walk on you!

Sag is the schmuck of the zodiac; they always believe, and they always end up getting hurt. They do catch on, but they rarely defend themselves for the next time.

4. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It makes sense that Aries would fear being hurt, as they are so in touch with their feelings and vulnerabilities that it's almost a full time job just to keep it all in check.

Aries may be a pushy sign, but they are also one of the most sensitive signs we have, and they do not take it lightly when they are in pain. They anticipate betrayal, almost to the point where they practically create it in others.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The reason you can't get through to your Gemini friend is because they've shut you out. This is what friendship with Gemini is like: dancing around feelings to avoid acknowledging them.


Gemini is one of the weakest signs we have, and they defend themselves by turning extremely cold on their friends and loved ones. They simply can't deal with being hurt, so they withdraw all forms of affection and warmth in order to protect themselves.

6. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is such a control freak that they try to control things in advance, such as controlling how people hurt them, and whether or not such a thing can happen. Born with intense trust issues, Scorpio just naturally assumes you are going to betray or hurt them, so they cut you off in advance.


They have a dire fear of being hurt, which, in turn, allows them to treat you badly before you get to them.
