Zodiac Sign Fears and Insecurities

1: Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries are energetic, confident, and a bit of a daredevil.

Understandably, their biggest fear is the fear of being forgotten or unnoticed.

They want to make their mark on the world and achieve many things.

The idea that these accomplishments will soon be forgotten is a fear Aries struggles with.

However, asking for help from others is the last thing on their minds.

They need to know that asking for help is okay.

2: Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is loving, determined, and warmhearted.

Oftentimes, they don’t trust their own intuition and this plays into their fear of unexpected change.

Since they love structure and stability, it’s easy to see why they fear things that can disrupt things.

Their insecurities also connect with their fears.

Taurus always questions what comes next.

They often worry about things not going their way.

They also tend to worry about things that have not happened yet.

As they crave stability, it can be very difficult for them to accept that they cannot control the future.

3: Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis are communicative, intellectual, and inconsistent.

They like exploring new places (and people) out of curiosity and to gain more knowledge.

Their most common fear is losing their freedom or getting stuck in a routine.

They are quite independent and like to try and explore new things so losing their freedom is a big deal for them.

Geminis also want to know things about the people they mingle with.

However, they can become out of the loop and feel abandoned.  

Also, the idea of being left alone can also be scary to Geminis.

4: Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers are cautious, loving, overly emotional, and sympathetic.

Their most common fear is others not liking them and the fear of rejection.

This fear resonates with their traits.

Cancers are known to be sensitive souls so the idea that others might not like them or will reject them will hurt them.

They are also very in touch with their emotions and have massive hearts so they have the tendency to feel things more than others.

Their biggest insecurity is sometimes they can feel broken and lost but won’t let others see it.

This can be because they fear sharing their emotions might cause others to judge them or not like them.

5: Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are creative, enthusiastic, and generous.

They want to be centerstage all the time and thanks to their charisma, they often achieve said objective.

6: Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos are over-critical, reliable, and perfectionists.

They can also be very picky and disorganized.

7: Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are diplomatic, romantic, and indecisive.

They can also easily charm people, are friendly, and often very sociable.

However, they can also be very indecisive as they prefer to study different approaches first before making a final decision.

They also tend to analyze every decision they make and they are very logical in their approach.

This can however result in anxiety, paranoia, and overthinking.

Libras are also very particular about making a good impression and getting the approval of others.

They want to be liked by almost everyone and would go to great lengths to earn people’s approval.

8: Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios are known to be very resentful, intuitive, and emotional.

They are also very secretive and don’t like oversharing.

If you start asking a Scorpio too many questions, expect them to be very cautious and run.

Their biggest fear is being betrayed by someone they trust.

Once their trust is broken, expect to have a very hard time earning that trust back.

One of their insecurities is the fear that someone will judge, expose, or humiliate them. 

9: Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius is good-humoured, straightforward, and optimistic.

They can sometimes be argumentative but they also love learning new things.

Their biggest fear is losing their freedom.

One of their common insecurities is they can easily assume that people won’t like them once the attention is taken away from them.

They also often convince themselves that something is wrong even if there’s no issue at all.

10: Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorns are practical, careful, and ambitious.
