If you’ve ever chewed off all your fingernails while uttering a phrase like, “Ugh, I’m such a Virgo,” then you already know some worries seem to be specific to each zodiac sign. That’s definitely not to say, however, that anxiety is rooted in the stars. A true anxiety disorder is a whole different animal. But, if you’re dealing with daily worries — especially ones that seem to be connected to your natural personality traits — it never hurts to turn to the Zodiac for a little guidance.
“Each sign has specific life path themes that relate to the sign’s ruling planet and place within the Zodiac,” professional astrologer Rachel Lang tells Bustle. “We often worry about things that are most important to us and most significant in terms of our life path.”
Once you learn more about your natural tendencies, you’ll know just what to work on when it comes to feeling calmer and more secure. As Lang says, “By learning the specific worries of your sign, you can better discern which worries are zapping your creative energy and which ones can inform our dedicated action.” Whatever your sign, there’s definitely something that’s likely to bug you, and all your fellow Leos, Virgos, Pisces, etc. Read on for some eye-opening worries specific to each sign.
Aries: The Threat Of Failure
If anything scares you, Aries, it’s the possibility of failure. This is all thanks to your fire sign, which makes you incredibly competitive and can, in turn, fuel your fears even more. “They absolutely need to be the best at everything they do,” says astrologer Valerie Mesa. “They’re natural trend-setters who strive to leave a legacy, and losing is just not in their vocabulary.”
Taurus: Money And Security
Even when doing great financially, you’re never quite able to shake those money worries. “A Taurus likes to have stability in all areas of their life, and so they worry about money and long-term financial security,” Lang says. “No matter how rich or poor, finances can preoccupy a Taurus mind.”
