The illness is usually hereditary, which means if both of your parents suffer from chronic migraines, you have a 75 percent chance of suffering from the illness as well. And if you’re a female, you’re three times more likely to suffer from migraines than men.

Although the illness is often hereditary, your lifestyle plays a huge role in how bad the migraine attacks can be.

For example, if you lead a fast-paced, stressful, and harsh lifestyle, you’re more likely to trigger migraine attacks. This is bad news for zodiac signs that gravitate towards this high-volume way of life.

Certain horoscope signs are definitely more prone to chronic migraines, whether it is hereditary or because of their lifestyle. This is because some zodiac signs naturally have a more stressful life because of their beliefs, traits, and life goals.

Some crave for perfection in everything they do, which is really hard to obtain in some cases and can lead them to feel strung out and tired. By the end of the day, they’re often dealing with a workload and a nasty headache to boot.

If you’re curious whether or not your lifestyle and personality traits are triggering that gnawing pain around your head, here are the five zodiac signs who are often victims of chronic migraines, per astrology.

1. Aries (March 21 — April 19)

If you’re an Aries, I come baring really bad news: Aries has the highest risk of falling victim to chronic migraines.

Aries is known to be pretty hot-headed and this can trigger painful headaches. Your competitive lifestyle can often lead to a lot of tension, which further escalates your migraines.

How to get rid of them: To counter the migraines, try some heart-pumping exercises.

Stiff necks can lead to painful headaches if left untreated and trigger underlying migraines. Because of your stubborn nature, you may often find yourself in situations where your jaw is tightly locked and neck is still.

How to get rid of them: Take care of your neck and your head will thank you for it.

4. Leo (July 23 — August 22)

If you’re a Leo, you need to be cautious because you’re prone to illnesses regarding mental health, which can trigger migraines.

if your life becomes too stressful, Leos rule the heart and blood so you’re also prone to heart and back problems. Again, this can trigger migraines if left untreated.

How to get rid of them: Mindfulness exercises can help you relax and move past the pain. Here's a great one:

Turn toward the pain and be aware of any intensity just for a moment. Next, be mindful of a part of your body that is pain-free and focus on comfortable feelings you are experiencing in that area. Now focus on one hand and imagine that it is becoming numb. Stay with that for a moment and then put that hand on the area of your discomfort and visualize your numb hand absorbing the pain that you have placed it on.

5. Sagittarius (November 22 — December 21)

Sagittarius rules over the hips, thighs, and eyes. Known for your highly physical lifestyle, your prone to serious back problems if you don’t take care of yourself.

It doesn’t help that you, Sagittarius, make impulsive decisions that can have major consequences. If you don’t take care of your back, it’ll lead to a bad neck, and painful migraines.

How to get rid of them: Center yourself back in the present moment. Consciously invite in emotions and thoughts by accepting and observing them in a small, handy journal.
