Most of us are constantly picking up on the emotions of those around us, even if we don’t realize it. Body language, microexpressions, and tone changes are subtle ways that people alert each other to their true feelings, whether or not they articulate them explicitly.
These are normal human experiences, but if you’re someone who constantly takes on the pain and joy of others, you’re most likely an empath.
Are they your feelings or others’?
Empathic people feel the emotions of others more intensely, often taking them on themselves.
Sometimes an empath may even be unsure if the emotions they are feeling are their own or someone else’s.
While this can make them amazing friends and confidants, it can be exhausting for the empath, and they often have to work hard to differentiate their feelings from others, as well as protect themselves from the negative energy around them.
Do you think you could be an empathetic person? Astrology can tell you where you stand on the empathy scale, with some signs being more empathetic than others from birth.
The 3 most empathetic zodiac signs:
Pisces are highly empathetic signs who can hardly stop picking up on other people’s feelings. They can always tell how a loved one is feeling, making them some of the best friends you could have. Unfortunately for them, they can suffer from emotional exhaustion as a result of their empathic nature. Pisces have to work hard not to carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. They should be careful to protect themselves from any negative energy or anyone who might sap their powers.
Cancer is one of the most sensitive zodiac signs, so it’s no wonder they can pay so much attention to other people. If you need someone to relate to your problems and put themselves in your shoes, Cancer will always know how to do it.
Cancer feels them all! Sometimes this can cause him to become indisposed, his mood being heavily influenced by the thoughts and feelings of those around him.
Scorpio gains some ground because they try to protect themselves, but behind that wall is a full-fledged empath. Scorpio can be overwhelmed by their empathic nature, which is why they prefer small groups and gatherings instead of extravagant parties or concerts. He feels everything intensely, but only when dealing with several types of feelings at once.
