Each zodiac sign has different triggers for what is stressing them, as well as different stress relief tactics they use. Most people inevitably feel stressed from time to time, because of anything from job demands to financial worries, health issues, or other issues that we all face in this modern world.
Unless you are reading this from another planet in the galaxy (if so, tell us how to get there), you probably felt overwhelmed by some kind of stress or anxiety at some point in your spiritual journey. However, what stresses a Cancer out is very different from what stresses a Sagittarius out.
We could all use some sort of technique to deal with stressors, and a glimpse of what makes us the most tired can open the door for us to start managing stress in a healthy way:
Aries is so busy in their day and rarely slows down to catch their breath or simply notice the little things in life. Aries can get tired if he doesn’t take the time to relax and rejuvenate from a busy school or work week.
You have so much energy and use this to transport yourself throughout the week, but when your energy goes down, it can make you feel like you are letting go and letting others down.
Aries wants to charge at full speed at all times, but it must remember to walk before running sometimes. Take at least one day off per week to do nothing; you can replenish your energy and also have a chance to enjoy life at a slower pace.
A Taurus also tiptoes around people’s feelings, not wanting to hurt others or disagreeing.
Powerful stress relief techniques for this sign include going a little easier on yourself, and not fixing on every little thing. Also, remember that you have no control over how others will react to your words; you can only own the way you handle a situation.
Gemini feeds on good conversations and generally has a bubbly and optimistic attitude. They just want to have fun in life and want to be with other people who have the same kind of energy.
For a Gemini, their own mind can stress them out, so staying active is a surefire way to keep the stress away. Geminis are a very social sign, so any kind of activity where they can be around people is best to get involved in.
Cancers need to feel safe, and when they don’t, their stress increases until their shells finally crack, exposing their true emotions. Cancers, instead of relying on others to nourish your feelings, and make yourself feel safe, offer yourself this safety.
Practice deep meditation and do things that make you feel most protected. Also, give your maternal energy to other people: volunteer in a nursing home, help someone out to the car with their groceries, or anything that will make you forget your emotions and others.
Leo loves the spotlight and must be the leader in everything he participates in, be it a work project, a business deal, or anything else that requires leadership.
Leos must learn to let go and live in the present moment, instead of trying to control all aspects of their lives. A fiery Leo thrives on respect and worship from others, but make sure you pay the same attention to yourself first instead of expecting it from others.
Virgos also think too much, like Geminis. Virgos have a very logical thought process and do practically nothing in life without thinking of all the little things. Without making lists to organize their thoughts, Virgos can easily let stress take over.
They can also be very critical of themselves and others, and enjoy a profession that requires paying attention to the smallest details. They solve problems and help others solve all the problems they face in life.
However, getting to the bottom of their own problems is a difficult task. Virgos would do well to put their thoughts and ideas on paper, and also not to scrutinize themselves as much as others.
Libras get very stressed when people treat them unfairly. They hate confrontation and will spend hours deciding what to say to someone who has hurt them, and whether or not they should even raise the issue.
Libras are a sign of balance, after all, after all, and don’t like anything to go unresolved, which causes their balance to tilt too far in one direction.
Libras are wonderful for creating harmony and have an airy sense that makes others feel comfortable and at peace. You treat others well, but it’s not always mutual. If something is bothering you, be sure to confront others, but keep it short, sweet, and to the point. Your peaceful nature will prevent any confrontation from getting out of control, anyway.
Scorpios, like Cancers, are a sensitive sign that hides their emotions under their hard scorpion shell. They like their privacy and, in general, do not like to be with very noisy or inconsiderate people.
Scorpios also tend to hold a grudge and like to take revenge on those who did them wrong. Scorpios, be sure to speak up if limits have been crossed and don’t let other people’s actions and choices get under your skin too much.
They are very impatient, impulsive and sporadic, and do not like situations where they have to act “correctly” or behave according to the standards of others. People born under this sign should make sure they stay active and spend a lot of time outside so as not to feel stressed.
Capricorns have high expectations for themselves. They can easily overwork themselves if they do not pay attention to their own needs and usually do not take much time to relax. They like to tell others what to do and often get involved in the lives of others.
Like Leos, they must control everything. However, life does not always go as planned, so Capricorns need to remember to relax and let life happen sometimes. Also, don’t take work too seriously, take enough time to play.
Aquarians are very spiritual, inventive, and adventurous people. They live an unconditional life, and any kind of commitment or attempt to reign them in will make them run for the hills. Aquarians are full of excitement and will always show you a good time no matter what you’re doing.
However, they can also be a bit emotionally detached and let their tenacious streak hinder listening to the opinions of others.
They do not like to admit when they are wrong and tend to think objectively, without letting their emotions get in the way. Aquarius must remember that life does not always follow their path and let it unfold as it should.
Pisces are very secretive and creative people, and they don’t like to be in the spotlight. Feeling exposed is a major stress trigger for Pisces, and they can even get sick due to the negative energy of others invading their space.
They prefer calm atmospheres and avoid noisy people and situations.
Pisces must give themselves enough time to recover from getting outside and also work to increase their vibration in order to protect themselves from any negative energy.
