Are You Stressed?



I got asked which astrology signs are most prone to stress. Obviously all human beings get stressed, but three signs stuck out to me.

1. Virgo: Virgos might lay claim to being the most stressed. The perfectionists of the zodiac, Virgos have a tendency to rely on analysis and logic and in turn become paralyzed by their thinking. Virgos do much better taking action rather than responding to situations with the mind. They surprise themselves by how well things go when they get out of their heads!

2. Scorpio: Scorpios are the most intense, passionate creatures of the zodiac. Carnally drawn to others, Scorpios get in deep with all relationships and become obsessed. This is a problem because they can't let go. The solution is to be frank about the underlying motivations of partnerships and relationships. Clarifying hidden agendas allows the Scorpion to truly take control. 

3. Aries: Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and the rams are always the first to lead the pack. Viscerally athletic, they are prone to injury and burnout because they don't pace themselves, and this can lead to stress and melancholy. They key is taking time to rest and repair. 

Zodiac signs are prone to stress due to what the Ionian philosopher, Heraclitus, observed: character is destiny. Your character is largely defined by your sun sign. The sun powers everything but can burn you as well. So who we are invariably leads us to certain life situations. However, destiny is always negotiable so who we are is not a rubber stamp on life outcomes.
