Ever wondered what turns a level head into a stress head according the zodiac signs? Wouldn’t it be handy to know how to prevent those pressure points and panic buttons from being pushed? Stressful situations may not always be possible to avoid but we’d like to help you reduce the size of your melt down by highlighting the things that make signs go full on cray-cray.
Aries: they create stress when they don’t trust others.
Aries rarely thinks anyone can do as good a job as themselves or in such a short time frame. This means they aren’t good at delegating and end up with too much on their plate. When stressed Aries becomes scattergun and unable to make decisions. They are also liable to take their stress out on anyone in their firing range so remember to duck!
Taurus: not good at recognizing stress.
The Taurus personality is reliable and dependable and that’s how they live their lives. They don’t deal well with change particularly big ticket items like moving house or swapping jobs. It’s not so much the letting go as the accepting of the new that drives their blood pressure up. And that’s exactly what happens to a stressed Taurus – high blood pressure and a tendency to become accident prone.
Cancer: making themselves ill over things that will never happen.
Cancer are fond of starting a sentence with “what if” – what you get hit by a car? – what if you catch a fatal disease? what if a meteorite lands on your head? They get stressed by the possibility of losing someone close and can become the living embodiment of a worrywart. Nervous symptoms include nightmares and sleep disorders.
Gemini: they’ll have a breakdown when not challenged.
Doing absolutely nothing stresses Gemini the hell out. Highly intelligent, restless and nimble they thrive on challenges in their professional and personal life. Stick them in a repetitious job or a dead end relationship and they will literally come to a standstill and stop caring. Weight gain and reoccurring skin disorders will tell you that a Gemini is stressed out.
Leo: wilting flowers when not being noticed.
This sign wants to be relevant and demands to be noticed. Leo are big, capable personalities who come unstuck when treated like they have reached their used by date. This might happen when their beauty has faded or their talents superseded. Stress will show in how desperately they try to regain the center of attention – think middle aged Casanovas and lamb dressed as mutton.
Virgo: they bottle it up until it all gets too much.
Virgos are bottlers – as perfectionists they find emotions messy and abstract. The problem is Virgo is just like the rest of us and when the lid on their genie bottle of emotions comes unstuck, stress strikes them down big time. Virgo will respond by becoming ill with mysterious physical ailments as they try to put a lid on their deteriorating mental health!
