You must’ve those split seconds in your life when it feels like the whole world is going to come crashing down on you. To get your bearing straight becomes difficult too. Constantly caught up in the conflict of yes or no, stay and work harder or leave and move on…it all becomes tiring when it starts to take a toll on you, doesn’t it?
This is just one approach towards looking at what anxiety is, and what brings it on in your mind. The reasons can vary drastically from person to person. We all have our bad days. That is not the problem. What matters is that we find our ground once the fog lifts.
And most of the times, when the clutches of anxiety seem to pull us down deeper, it is not the whole world against us but rather we against ourselves. That is when you truly know for sure that what is causing the anxiety to take control you so strongly is not the complications of life you face every day, but something more.
According to your zodiac, everyone possesses different traits. Speaking in the same pretext, everyone has different reasons for feeling anxious. Following we look at some of the triggering reasons for anxiety and stress in you based on your zodiac sign.
They’re general and might vary from person to person.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Being filled with a lively nature is not a bad thing. But on days, when you are not feeling like yourself, you will still want to be on the go, out and about and trying out new things. What you fail to realize here is that life can and will function without you.
Not being in the zone yet being on the go is basically what triggers those anxious feelings in you. Sometimes, it makes you feel a bit overwhelmed, out of shape and stressed beyond measure. What you need to do, therefore, is give yourself a break because if there is anything guaranteed about life other than its transient nature is the sole fact that it goes on. People come and go.
Things change. But life doesn’t stop for anyone. It will not halt if you spend one day inside in your PJs with a nice cup of coffee or ice cream or a good book. Always being the superhero is not important. Being free from the clutches of anxiety is.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
Nothing matters more to you than being safe and secure, both in terms of other relationships and with yourself. You get anxious when that sense of stability is out of your life in some way. You get anxious when you are unable to meet deadlines. You get anxious when you fail to meet someone on time.
You get anxious if someone makes you feel like you are not good enough. You get anxious when you really upset someone. Basically, all such things deprive that sense of stability and security from your life. It will all work out, eventually. You need to remind yourself this time and again.
Overthinking about such things will just make it worse than they actually in your head. So, take a chill pill and go with the flow. Getting anxious over something will not magically resolve the issue, now will it?
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
The reason you tend to become anxious when you do is because you have a high tendency to take the little things in life too seriously. Despite your cheery nature, you become upbeat about certain stuff way too fast. What you need is to calm your mind and not form permanent feelings and emotions about temporary things.
Practicing mind calming techniques every once in a while will prove to be effective. Your dual nature might sometimes make you focus on the negative side of things. But remember, everything has a positive side to it as well. It all depends on you as to which side you focus on more.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
Feeling calm and safe matters a lot to you. When someone invades your privacy, tries to control you when you can do it very well yourself or when someone does not give you the space you need to recharge yourself from the world, anxiety will hit you like a bag of bricks.
Walking alone at night, having too many eyes on you in a public place, being the center of attention and negative critique – it all makes you feel anxious too. Despite all of it, you need to refrain from taking things to heart so easily. Do not put stress on your emotions so much either. If you need some reassurance that things will get better, never hesitate to confide in a friend. Not trusting yourself can also lead to feeling anxious.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Being in control is your thing. You set defined goals and you go for it. Losing track of things on that way fills you up with anxiety. You get restless when you do not stay behind the wheel even for a short time. That makes you lose sight of your plan, the way you wish to handle things and leads to a sense of anxiety taking over. What you need to do is cut yourself some slack. You cannot always get what you want, but you might get what you need. Things might not always go to plan but they will always work out in the end… even if that does not happen from your hands.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Overthinking is what almost always triggers your anxiety. If Virgos were paid for every time they overthink, they would be the richest people on the planet. You are known to be ideal perfectionists. When things do not go according to plan, you start to overthink about its consequences. Analyzing then over-analyzing about it keeps on building up on that anxiety for you. So all in all, you are your own worst enemy. You overthink most decisions, which freaks yours out mostly. You need to trust more that things will be okay because always assuming the worst is just no good.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Justice means the most to you in life, no matter what it is. If you feel a sense of injustice even a bit, it really stresses you out. Most of the times, what triggers anxiety for you is your high tendency to overthink about the pros and cons of people and situations way more than you ought to, instead of acting in the moment and just going with the flow.
You have to realize that sometimes, all you need is the air you breathe to feel and live in the moment, not to sit on things for a long time going through all the different scenarios in your head. Over Complicating things is never helpful anyway.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
As much as you like to be a daredevil, you still want your peace and quiet. Not having enough of that privacy or quiet triggers anxious feelings in your mind. You need your space to recharge and be in more tune with your inner self so you hate it when people do not give you that.
It makes you feel nervous and tense. What really tick you off the most, in the end, is when others do not respect your boundaries. Give yourself time as well as others. If that does not help as much, be clear to them and go find your own peace and quiet corner. After all, you deserve it.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
You are your own person; being spontaneous is all you live for. Therefore, living up to others’ standards, being controlled and conforming to society stresses you out way more than people realize. You dislike it a lot being told how to act, behave or dress.
Having to meet deadlines, sitting idle and leading a monotonous life makes you very restless and that in turn makes you anxious. Always give yourself the best of life when you can. Do not miss out on any opportunities to make your life more exciting.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
You yourself are the cause of your anxiety. Being a workaholic, you put way too much pressure on yourself and set a lot of strict deadlines… for yourself. And if you don’t meet them, you feel really frustrated and that is what triggers the anxiety. What you need to do is stop thinking about the “what ifs.” If you do not learn to live in the now, you will not remember what it felt like to be present or how good something felt, something in the present. After all, time waits for no one.
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
You like to keep it cool. In a world filled with so many complications, the everyday routines of getting things done will not allow you to do that. Therefore, you devise your own methods and resolutions to get things done. And if things do not go your way you then you get very anxiety over it.
For you to get back on the path you have set for yourself, you make some changes around, try to clarify things and you get stressed by time, as is the case when you know you cannot control everything You try to do too much in too little time. So what you have to remind yourself every now and then is that you need to slow down, relax and deal with things one at a time.
Rushing them will not help. Sometimes things will not go your way at all, but that does not mean it is not right or is not going to work out.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Being shy is one of the major traits about a Pisces. They sure are smart, witty, humorous and highly creative but getting it all out in the open is not always the course you wish to take; the idea of that makes you feel quite uncomfortable.
Therefore, exposing it all makes you very anxious. Public speaking also makes you stressed too. Even big crowds and being around too many people stresses you out and triggers the anxiety. Sometimes, it gets too much and even breathing becomes the most difficult task for you.
That is when you need to simply breathe it all out, and remind yourself that things are going to be okay. If not now, then later. Even if you cannot fix something or someone, it is not the end of the world. Your well-being matters too. Keep that in mind in case the fear of having to interact with others makes you feel too anxious.
