Aries (March 21 – April 19): Fear of losing people
For an Aries, the only thing that’s scarier than losing a fight is losing the people around them. These individuals can’t bear being the one to lose a fight, because they are born warriors. Infact, sometimes they even throw themselves into situations that may lead to combat not because they want to win, but simply because it is their nature.
It is due to this that they sometimes antagonize the ones that they love and don’t realize it. This may lead to their close ones turning away from them, and they end up losing people, and they never forgive themselves for that. This feeling further causes them to become frustrated, and to vent their anger out, they put themselves in a situation to fight again, leading to a vicious cycle.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Fear of financial instability
Being comfortable is an absolute priority for Taureans, and they enjoy good food, good friends and all the luxuries and facilities of life. Infact they have a deep need to be surrounded by amenities. It is due to this very fact that they feel the need for constant financial stability, and more often than not, they guard their money extremely closely.
If they sense a dwindle in their account balance, they start worrying about the possible changes they’ll have to make to their lifestyle. The fear of financial instability grips most Taureans tightly, since they earn money not just to earn, but also to spend.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Fear of making decisions
For a Gemini, sticking to choices and decisions is difficult. They often even break promises they made to themselves, because they don’t feel like sticking to them.
It is this quality that makes them great manipulators- they change their ideas many times and most people lose track of what they actually said first.
Gemini is the sign of the twins- they have 2 sides to their personality, and almost always, one of them is always in a state of conflict with the one. The minute Gemini settles with one choice, the other half of their personality chimes in about how it could be the wrong choice. This leaves them in a difficult state, and they are always stuck with the fear of making a decision.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Fear of leaving home
Cancers love their comfort zone too much- a place where they are sure no one can hurt them. They tend to be agoraphobics, and are scared by being trapped in situations that are painful and difficult to escape. The irony is, this fear puts them in a mental state of being trapped in a place where they hurt, and are unable to escape from it.
This is possibly why they put themselves in isolation, which they feel is safe. They need to learn to do things that scare them and get into situations that are new and both physically and emotionally unfamiliar to them.
This can help them learn their bit about personal freedom, and can help them escape their mental and physical comfort zone.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Fear of being ignored
Leos are proud of themselves, and their ultimate fear is walking into a room and going unnoticed. They don’t shy away from the spotlight, and almost always, their wardrobe, body language or simply the way they express themselves is in such a way that it gets hard for people to ignore them.
They feel the constant need to be seen and witnessed in order to validate their experiences. If someone hasn’t seen that, it holds no value to them.
To make sure they are noticed and valued, they do everything in their power, and stand out from among the rest.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Fear of imperfection
The fear of being disorganized and imperfect is extremely strong in Virgos. If you enter their apartment and leave your shoes lying around or throw a used tissue on the floor, be prepared for assault charges.
The slightest bit of being unorganized can irritate and trigger anger in Virgos, and it can also send them into a downward spiral of negativity.
Most of the time, Virgos feel the need to keep themselves organized, but it is simply to keep their emotions in control. They constantly criticize the outer imperfections but deep down they fear their inner faults.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Fear of being alone
Libras are intelligent, loving and passionate, and make for a good romantic partner. The one thing they absolutely fear is being alone, or even worse, spending their life alone.
Being alone can drive them to depression. Infact, sometimes they can fall into making decisions and being committed only because of their fear of being alone.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Fear of intimacy
Scorpios are complex people, but they are also extremely sensitive. They are not usually regarded sensitive because they don’t express their feelings completely, but they feel emotions more powerfully than most other people do. With this sensitivity comes the fear of intimacy.
Scorpios fear that being intimate with someone would mean an exposure of their feelings, which makes them scared of losing their own identity.
This is why a lot of Scorpios also drive their partners in, and then push them away.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) : Fear of enclosed spaces
Sagittarians have a free spirit, and are natural explorers. They love traveling the world and learning new experiences. For them, the greatest fear is being confined to a particular person or task.
This claustrophobia also sometimes drives them to shirk off their responsibilities, and often they take hasty decisions which they then end up regretting. They are extremely scared of anything that comes in the way of their freedom.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Fear of failure
Capricorns are workaholics and for them, work is the best form of addiction. They live on success, but at the same time, they have a very deep set fear of failure.
They also tend to have daddy issues, and in some ways, they are a lot like Leos, who have a fear of not being powerful, applauded and successful deep within themselves.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Fear of institutionalization
Being intellectually trapped is one of the greatest fears for all Aquarians. They are similar to Sagittarians, who have a fear of being trapped, but for Aquarians, it is specific to their work, career and marriage.
The idea of being imprisoned to just one kind of any of these is what they fear the most- they love being original and always evolving.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Fear of responsibility
Pisces tend to live in their own fantasy world, and sometimes, they just don’t want to grow up. They tend to have a lot of knowledge and wisdom, but at the same time, they don’t have a lot of maturity.
They are creative people, but don’t seem to have the idea and responsibility to handle it all correctly, which is why, a lot of them turn to drugs and alcohol to avoid facing these issues. The idea of being responsible for a particular idea of action can shake them.
