Do you have a fear or phobia that you can’t quite explain? It might be linked to your Zodiac archetype. Here are the most common fears for every sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries isn’t afraid of anything. At least that’s what they’d like the world to believe! In truth, Aries has a deep-seated fear of losing any kind of competition. Whether it’s fantasy football or a promotion at work, Aries is terrified of being the loser.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus is afraid of change. This stubborn Earth sign likes things the way they like them. Unfortunately, one of the few constants in the universe is change. You either have to learn to adapt or get left behind.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini collects little fears and phobias the way other people collect Funko Pops. However, what they are really afraid of is losing their mind. The idea of developing dementia or any other condition that damages Gemini’s big, beautiful brain is terrifying.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer worries a lot. Mostly for their families, but also about the state of the world in general. However, despite the constant stream of worry, Cancer’s biggest fear is of being abandoned and alone.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo’s whole identity is bound up in the way that other people see them. They are gregarious and charming, and Leos get their energy from others as natural extroverts. So the idea of being invisible–figuratively speaking–is super scary. If a Leo doesn’t haven’t an audience, do they even exist?
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos are perfectionists and workaholics. To this sign, making a mistake is the scariest thing imaginable. That, and vermin. Virgo is not a fan of messes or creatures such as rats or spiders.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras biggest fear is one that most of us share to some extent. But while many people would prefer to avoid confrontation, Libra is downright terrified of it. Arguments are terrifying for this sign that thrives on balance and harmony.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio’s two major fears are like two sides of the same coin. On the one side, they’re scared of intimacy. Letting people in takes a lot of courage and effort for this mysterious sign of the Zodiac. On the other side of the coin, they’re scared of betrayal.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
The whole world’s a party, Sagittarius… but what if you’re not invited? Sagittarius was suffering from FOMO (that’s fear of missing out) long before it became a mainstream thing. This fear can lead to indecision and anxiety because they know that no matter their choice, they will lose out on another possibility.
Capricorn (December 23-January 20)
Capricorns around the world are saying “I told you so” right about now. That’s because this sign of the Zodiac has always been afraid of germs. They always wash their hands for thirty seconds and carry hand sanitizer. And Capricorn will shun anyone who tries to break quarantine.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius isn’t truly afraid of much, but one thing that scares this free-spirited sign is the idea of enclosed spaces. Working at a cube farm (aka a traditional office) might as well be climbing in a coffin for Aquarius. They might not have traditional claustrophobia (although that’s a possibility), but they really hate being boxed in.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
What isn’t Pisces scared of? In addition to the usual fears of snakes, spiders, mice and the like, Pisces is also fundamentally scared of rejection and loneliness. They’re vulnerable souls who are prone to giving their hearts to the wrong people. Be gentle with Pisces.
