Let’s be realistic. We are all prone to insecurity from time to time. Whether you’re worried that you don’t quite fit in with the society around you, or you’re struggling with the fear of failure, you’re not alone. Most people are in the same hole-riddled boat, desperately trying to stay afloat in a sea of social perception. Wondering if your zodiac sign can point you to your biggest insecurities? Then check!
The biggest insecurities of each zodiac sign
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is so bold and self-confident that it’s hard to imagine that he’s insecure at all. Used to being outspoken and adventurous, these confident fire signs can’t ask for help when they need it. Their insecurity is that they need to be the best at everything they do, which keeps them from taking advice from others.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As a sign that craves stability, Taurus’ biggest insecurity is that they can become insecure in life. It could be the loss of a job, home, or relationship, Taurus is constantly looking and waiting for what might happen next. This makes it difficult for them to live in the present moment, as Taurus will be more concerned with controlling the future.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis tend to be flippant, so their biggest insecurities are that they think too much about what others think. This air sign is prone to overthinking, which causes him to change his behavior depending on who he is talking to.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As a water sign, Cancer is very good at understanding the emotions of oneself and others. But sometimes Cancers can feel overwhelmed by their feelings, forcing themselves to hold them back for fear of being judged by others. Cancers are unsure of their deep emotions and worry that not everyone will be able to handle them.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
As you already know, the fiery Leo prefers to be the center of attention. He is sociable, cheerful, and has a natural charisma. But Leo’s biggest insecurity is that these traits (or himself) will go completely unnoticed by others. Leos have a fragile ego and a lot of their insecurities come from being forgotten or ignored.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos will take the term self-criticism to a whole new level. This earth sign strives for perfection and will punish themselves if they fail at something. Their biggest insecurities are that they, or the work they do, will never be good enough, which causes them to be unnecessarily hard on themselves.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
While Libras have been known to play Devil’s Advocate, they hate confrontation and prefer to stay on the good side of people. Their biggest insecurity is not being liked, which is why they sometimes let people treat them like rags.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are the most powerful of the water signs (and perhaps of all signs) and can be extremely wary or paranoid. This sign has serious trust issues, and because of this, their biggest fears are that someone close to them will humiliate, expose, or judge them.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarians are optimistic, peaceful, and rarely anxious, so it can be hard for people to spot their biggest insecurities right away. This fire sign values their freedom very much, and their biggest danger is that they will become bound and lose their freedom. This insecurity causes Sagittarius to sabotage relationships or careers.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are known to put career first. This ambitious sign would rather work than play, and their biggest danger is that they will lose. That’s why they go the extra mile for any task or project, no matter how small. But this fear of failure can hinder their relationship.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarians are so logical that many sincerely believe that they have no emotions. But for this sign, the opposite is true. Behind this cold exterior lies a fragile heart, and Aquarius’s biggest insecurity is that they will be hurt when they finally reveal their vulnerable side.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, like Virgo, can be a bit stricter with themselves than other signs. Constantly trying to please and help others, they will gladly let their troubles go aside. But with such devotion comes the fear of disappointment. Pisces give their best in every way but are still unsure if they are worthy of receiving the same kind of love.
