If you have ever followed astrology, you probably would have spent a whole lot time reading about the positive qualities your sign has. You did this by completely ignoring the dark side of your zodiac, including your fears.
However, we think it is absolutely necessary for us to understand all aspects of our lives via the zodiac for it allow us to move on strengthened and in full awareness.
Our fears are what hold us back from being who we want to be.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Fear of Losing People
As much as they don’t want to lose a fight, they certainly cannot lose a friend.
Aries are warriors. They jump into battle only to win. They hate losing a fight but it isn’t until later that they realize that they have lost a friend too. They enjoy challenging battles – but they will antagonize the ones they love, often without realizing.
Those who love Aries, never retaliate, they often disappear and an Aries will never forget their mistake either. But this idea of not accepting their mistake, the idea of wrong-ness makes them uneasy.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Fear of Financial Instability
The idea of life for Taurus, is to comfortable. Have a life that is secure.
They like to enjoy with good friends, food and a fireplace.
However, they only achieve this if they are surrounded by amenity. Their lives require financial stability, otherwise they cannot fulfill their ‘idea of fun’. They often guard their money and prevent debt as much as they can.
If they would wake up on a Sunday and notice that their account is $50 overspent, they would cut back on their lifestyle! Instantly and balance it out. They don’t earn money because they have to – they do it spend.
Nothing scares them more than financial instability.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Fear of Making Decisions
You know that friend who tells you to choose the place you guys have to eat at and when you suggest, they instantly tell you, ‘No! Really, you wanna go there?’
They change their decisions, opinions and choices, like crazy.
This is why they are such manipulators, they’ll change their stance while you snap your fingers.
For a Gemini the weakness is the fear of making decisions. If you throw in your opinion towards a Gemini, they will try to hang on two decisions at once and never come to a conclusion.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Fear of Leaving Home
They like staying safe and they don’t like messing around. They wish to be in a place where no one can hurt them.
Agoraphobics (meaning): “a fear of being trapped in places or situations where escape is difficult”
They would feel safer in a zone that they are used to of but the isolation kills them too. However, they often like branching out in doing things that scare them.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Fear of Being Ignored
One thing Leos won’t just like one bit, is to walk into a room unnoticed. However, one way they are lucky is to use their fear and convert it into motivation.
Hence, they make it impossible for people to ignore them!
They would do this by either wearing something that can’t be ignored, have a body language that is exuberant or they just express themselves amazingly.
Try asking a Leo ‘the tree in the forest line’ – they’ll tell you, ‘the tree was a failure’.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Fear of Imperfection
Even if you’re the messiest person in the world, you’ll run to the paper towels if you spill something on a Virgo’s floor. Why? Because of the mental breakdown a Virgo will put everyone through!
They are organized and can never have a messy closet and the slightest bit of disorganization will not let them sleep. Virgos are naturally negative and staying organized keeps them emotionally sound. Despite fearing external imperfections, they actually fear internal imperfection.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Fear of Being Alone
We all love Libras – intelligent, loving and passionate people.
They are good romantic partners too.
However, they have the biggest fear of being alone. They can never imagine their lives without the people they love.
Intelligent, loving, passionate people, Libras are exceptionally good romantic partners. It’s hard to imagine them spending their lives alone. It’s especially for them to imagine it, but they do, all the time. Because nothing frightens them more.
It is the hardest for Libras to break up or get divorced or have their children go away to college! They need people always.
They are nice people.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Fear of Intimacy
Deep, dark and complex.
We just defined a Scorpio. We’ve all heard how people say that a Pisces is emotional, but Scorpios, are far more emotional – you just may never find out.
Usually, abandonment and engulfment are the two factors that creates the fear of intimacy within Scorpios.
They fear others actually leaving them or they are terrified of losing their own self in a relationship. In a relationship with a Scorpio you’d often keep asking yourself, ‘What the hell did I do?’
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) : Fear of Enclosed Spaces
Don’t fly with them.
They are too claustrophobic. It could either be because of closed spaces or their daily responsibilities and chances are they will not be huge fans of taking hot baths.
Nothing scares them more than a hindrance to their freedom.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Fear of Failure
They are really business-minded people and find it to be their best kind of addiction. They keep aiming at their goals and would not stop until they achieve it. But on the way, they really can’t fail. And they fear it a lot.
They are a lot like Leos, their fears, motivates them.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Fear of Institutionalization
An Aquarius will try hard to avoid any intellectual entrapment. They get claustrophobic too, but unlike a Sagittarius, this usually happens to them from corporate work, school and hospitals – oh, and also, marriage.
If you leave an Aquarius to make their own decisions, leave them alone and not work with them consistently – well, basically, be on their heads – they would probably be happier.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Fear of Responsibility
They are like Peter Pan, living in a fantasy world.
They have a lot of wisdom but tremendously lack maturity. They are also known to be extremely creative but in contrast, again, they can’t deal with day-to-day life. They often turn to drugs and alcohol to move past daily responsibilities and just don’t want to be accountable!
