How The Zodiac Signs Ask For Help. getty

Asking for help can be challenging for adults. When we’re kids, we have no problem, but when we get older, it depends on who we feel comfortable asking. Some people will do anything to avoid asking for advice or assistance of any kind.

We all have our own methods in how to ask for help, and if we think about astrology, it rings true for the zodiac signs. How the zodiac signs ask for help all depends on their individual personality. For some, it may be something they consider for a long time and then work up to, while others may just blurt out a request.


Some feel they should be able to do everything themselves and that, by asking for help, they make themselves look weak. But nothing can be further from the truth. It takes a certain maturity to recognize the need for help and the ability to request it.

There are times when you have to ask someone for help, and there are other times when people sense you need it and offer it before you’ve even had a chance to ask. Sometimes, you don’t even realize you need help until after it’s given. In a way, that’s the best kind of help because it comes from a place of support.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries have a direct way of asking for help. When you're as adventurous as Aries is and you're someone who likes to push their own boundaries, there are times when it's crucial.

If an Aries is trying trapeze work for the first time or climbing Everest, they are going to ask for help from experts and people who have excelled at the things they want to do. When Aries asks for help, there isn't any build up, they just ask for the information or the assistance they need.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus would rather not have to ask for help, so they'll patiently keep trying to do something, hoping they'll avoid assistance. When they finally realize they do need to ask for help, they'll be very specific in what they need.


While they may be tempted just to have somebody else do the task they're having trouble with, generally, they'll get help and do the rest themselves.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini uses their great communication skills when they ask for help, and they'll do it in a number of ways. They may ask directly or try to figure it out themselves and demonstrate they need help, or they may just hire some assistance.

One of Gemini's many great qualities is that they're always the first to offer others help, so they usually have lots of people who are more than willing to help them in return.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Since Virgos are always there when you need them and can fix just about anything, people are happy to have the opportunity to help them for a change.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras have no problem asking for help, but what they're never prepared for is when they ask and it's refused. So, rather than practice asking for help, Libra will try to become okay with the "no." In fact, they'll put all their energy into a "no" response, so they're surprised when they get a "yes."

Libras feel that people should help each other whenever they can, so when they don't, it's shocking.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios ask for help in a very focused way, and not much can divert their attention away from the task. They may work on the person to get them into the right headspace to say yes.


Scorpio does this by starting out with small, easy requests and builds from there, so when they need major help it won't come as that much of a shock. They are good with getting what they need.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius help people all the time and have no qualms about asking for help themselves. If they need advice or some other kind of help, they will show how they followed the advice they were given, and they will use whatever help they're given and not just blow it off.

Sagittarians have a strong sense of service to others and they'd much prefer to give help than ask for it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

As independent and capable that Capricorn is, there are times when they need to ask for help, but it's not something they do casually or without thought. They're genuine and honest with their asks, and they tend to remember when someone went out of their way to help them.

Capricorns are thoughtful with their words when they ask for help so there aren't any misunderstandings.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius knows they can't always do everything themselves. They tend to ask for help reluctantly, unless the help they need will benefit someone or something else.

If Aquarius needs help organizing a charity event or cleaning up the beach, they have no problem asking for help. If they need someone to pick them up after out-patient surgery, that's a little more difficult.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are good at sensing when other people need help, but not as good at realizing when they need help. They can be lost in their own world and not understand they need help until the situation has gotten out of hand.


Pisces tend to put their trust in the wrong people, who end up not helping others and only helping themselves.
