What Your Secret Fear Is Based On Your Zodiac Sign
By Sophia Hyder, 26 May 2016
If you follow Astrology, chances are you tend to look out for the more positive qualities of your star sign.
Here are the secret fears based on your sign. Take them with a pinch of salt, and use the information to better yourself.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Fear of losing people
Aries are warriors, and tend to throw themselves into fights because they love to win, and because combat runs deep in their blood. They enjoy a good battle, often challenging their loved ones, not realizing that they have antagonized the ones they care about most, sometimes before it’s too late. When an Aries’ actions backfire, their loved one might not fight back, but instead, disappear completely, making the Aries feel at a constant state of unease.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Fear of financial instability
A Taurus loves comfort. Although their choice of comfort tends to be simple – a warm home, a close circle of loved ones, a comfortable armchair – their desire for comfort influences their spending habits. Since Taurus needs to fund their comforts, they guard their money diligently and avoid debts as much as possible. They earn money to spend it, and not having the funds scares them more than anything.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Fear of making decisions
Gemini tends to change their opinions and decisions fairly quickly, and this is because they are represented by twins. The moment they are close to making one decision, the ‘other half’ pipes up with a differing set of opinions and rationale, causing the original decision to fall through. It is almost impossible to make a proper decision when both sides have such good points.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Fear of leaving home
Cancer does not like to leave their comfort zone. They much rather prefer to remain in a place that’s familiar and safe to them, but this might cause them to stagnate. Often, these ‘safe places’ might claim a Cancer as prisoner. Cancer cannot live in isolation forever, rather, they must branch out and do things that are scary and unfamiliar to them. Only this way can they learn that personal freedom has more to do with internal than external circumstances.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Fear of being ignored
A Leo cannot stand walking into a room and not having all eyes on them. They need to be seen in order to validate their experiences, be it through their wardrobe, body language, or the way they express themselves. They are afraid that if people do not pay attention to them, their efforts to go noticed have failed, and they are, therefore, nothing more than a failure.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Fear of imperfection
Virgo hates disorganization, be it in their physical lives or within their own brains. Virgo tends to be a naturally negative person, and keep their negative feelings and emotions at bay by keeping a perfectionist or unwavering front. They often try to “keep things real” or be “helpful” to an upset friend, when really, they don’t want to confront their own fears and negativity. They seem to want to make sure everything is perfect because they are actually afraid that they themselves are not.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Fear of being alone
Libra is absolutely terrified of being alone. They are truly romantic people, and their passion and zest for life can charm the pants off anyone. So it is very hard for them to imagine a future where they will be alone. They are either serial monogamists, or go through life as though there is a dark cloud hovering above them. A Libra always needs someone to shower their affections on.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Fear of intimacy
A Scorpio is a very sensitive soul who cherishes their own individuality. Therefore, they are afraid of getting abandoned by a lover, or losing themselves to a relationship. They draw themselves into relationships, often distancing themselves or running away completely if they feel you two are becoming to close. This is why Scorpio’s friends and lovers are often left wondering what it is they’ve done wrong.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) : Fear of enclosed spaces
Sagittarius is a natural explorer, and will constantly roam the Earth in search for truth, answers, and new discoveries. The planet Jupiter, also known as the planet of expansion, rules them. It is in their nature to be averse to being held in small spaces, or being placed in a box. Tight daily responsibilities, constant checking of their bank account, and being cooped up in a 9-to-5 office job might make a Sagittarius go mad.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Fear of failure
Business-minded and hardworking, a Capricorn loves reaping the successes of their efforts. Their ability to become successful also embeds a deep fear of failure within them. This is why most Capricorn tend to work slowly and meticulously; they are afraid that carelessness might cost them their success. Strangely, much like Leo, their fear motivates them to become successful in what they do.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Fear of institutionalization
Much like Sagittarius, Aquarius does not like to feel trapped. But for Aquarius, they do not like to get trapped by institutions, like schools, work, or marriage. They are free spirits who view institutions as places that place a lock on people’s intellectual ability, and foster a group mentality. Their originality makes them averse to being caught in a group. Either let them make up their own mind, or leave them be.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Fear of responsibility
Pisces does not want to grow up. They are often caught in their own fantasy world and often possess the child-like innocence of their childhood, yet somehow, they hold wisdom beyond their years. They are bursting with creativity, and hate how they are always having their originality suppressed. Taking up responsibilities spells doom for their creativity, which is something they do not want to lose.
