Every sign is stressed out by different things and every sign has a different way they can cope.
Aries, March 21 – April 19
Aries signs have an unstoppable energy and can outrun anyone. But they can feel frustrated and stressed when they’re sick or feeling blue. You just have to remember to take a break every once in a while. Use those moments as opportunities to recharge so you can get back to saving the world like you usually do.
Taurus, April 20 – May 20
Taurus wants to hit the bull’s eye on the first try, every time. Their biggest fear and source of stress is being seen as anything but fully competent. But learn from your failures, Taurus, and you’ll succeed beyond your expectations the next time.
Gemini, May 21 – June 21
Gemini can’t deal with stupid people. (We don’t blame you.) But just count to three (or ten!) when you feel your temper boiling up. It’s vital that you don’t let anger fuel your decisions and lead you somewhere you don’t want to be.
Cancer, June 22 – July 22
When things are a little turbulent, Cancers tend to crawl back into their own shell and refuse to let people in. They can’t cope with feeling insecure in a situation or relationship. But instead of bottling up those feelings, let them out every once in a while. You’ll find that the people who are worth it will respond well.
Leo, July 23 – August 22
Things happen in life that we don’t always have control over. Sometimes, dear Leo, you benefit the most when you learn to go with the flow, and give up some of that control. Letting things be the way they are, and focusing on that which you can do something about will make you much happier in the long run.
Virgo, August 23 – September 22
You think too much. Get rid of the clutter in your mind, Virgo. Don’t get lost in the muddle of thoughts that lead you to over-worry and overthink. Write some to-do lists, clean your room. Anything to organize yourself, and your life. You’ll thank yourself later.
Libra, September 23 – October 22
Libras thrive in serene and beautiful surroundings. They can get down if they’re feeling bogged down by the monotonous grind of the everyday. Every now and then, you gotta treat yourself to some of the finer things in life. Take a spa retreat, spend a few hours at the park, light some scented candles. Anything to restore harmony and balance will do for you.
Scorpio, October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, sharp and determined on the outside, but highly sensitive and emotional on the inside. You tend to take drawbacks and criticism very personally. Sometimes, you gotta take a step back with a rational eye and know that not everything is a jab at who you are as a person.
Sagittarius, November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius gets bored and fed up if they have to sit still for too long. Their sign is eternally on the move. To refuel yourself, go on a holiday, go snowboarding, have an adventure. Sometimes, you also tend to move too quickly and miss a huge detail that catches up with you later. Remember to pause every now and then and see if there’s anything you might be overlooking.
Capricorn, December 22 – January 19
Capricorn, oh Capricorn. You work way too hard and you appreciate yourself way too little. You need to acknowledge your accomplishments, and allow yourself to enjoy life sometimes. You’ve probably achieved way more than you give yourself credit for.
Aquarius, January 20 – February 18
Aquarians need to remember to get in touch with their emotions sometimes. You tend to put off your stress and anxiety and cover it up, only to have it bite you in the ass later. Don’t kid yourself into thinking everything’s a-okay if it’s not.
Pisces, February 19 – March 20
Pisces don’t like to feel confined. Their dreamy, creative, and compassionate nature makes them flexible, able to go whichever the way the stream takes them. You can get annoyed with people demanding you to take a black or white stance, and therefore, need to create a reality of your own to go back to. Whether it’s devoting yourself to an activity, or creating a safe haven in your room, where you can free your mind.
