5. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, a fire sign, always appears full of life, and aren’t easily depressed. But if you dig deeper, you’ll find another story altogether.
The truth is, although they appear upbeat, they are good at hiding their hurt from the world, and often, from themselves. They like to pretend that everything is fine because people’s opinions matter a lot to them.
Leos are proud people and if they feel insulted in any way, it can lead to depression. They will suffer in silence just because they are insecure about others making fun of their emotions.
Although Leos want to believe that the emotional problems ended with the previous sign Cancer, in reality, Leos carry a bit of the Cancer inside them. However, those traits never surface because the Leos have an active lifestyle where they are quite popular. When left to themselves, depression can creep in.
6. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos aren’t allowed to be depressed. That’s right. They perceive depression as a weakness of character, which should be removed from their system as early as possible so that they can go back to working their ass off again.
Even if they feel the pangs of depression, Virgos will dismiss them as irritational thoughts and try focusing on something productive. Their practical and logical minds actually help them overcome a depressed mental state more easily.
As we all know, Virgos are the perfectionists and pay too much attention to not going “wrong”. This, coupled with their inherent shyness, can make them awkward while interacting with new people. When it comes to interacting in social setups, they can get overwhelmed, which later causes them to overthink and become depressed.
7. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
The air sign Libra doesn’t get depressed all that much, thanks to their ability to not let feelings affect them deeply. If they do get depressed, it’s usually because they have planets under Scorpio, their immediate next zodiac sign that is characterized by major mood swings.
Librans are clever people and enjoy engaging in deep, interesting conversations. Hence, conversing openly with people they like and being involved in social gatherings is sure to work for them, in case they feel depressed. Anything that adds beauty and more harmony to their lives works for Librans– shopping is a good temporary fix.
The way out of depression is building inner strength and not hoping for a better partnership/relationship, as they sometimes expect. Activities like yoga and writing can help vent toxic emotions.
8. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Being one of the most intense zodiacs that feel everything deeply, can have their own set of problems– depression being one of them.
So many times, the problems triggering depression are related to their relationships, and that’s because Scorpions give immense importance to their relationships, that’s just who they are.
They sway between extremes- their highs are super ecstatic, while other times they feel as low as anybody possibly can. When they realize they are suffering from depression, they go all out with the negativity– they immerse themselves in all things sad, movies, music, etc. They want to hit rock bottom and emerge as a stronger person.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign, so they are inherently good at conquering their emotions. All they need to do is muster the willpower to fight off depression. It all boils down to the will with Scorpions.
And no, just because they are intense in bed doesn’t mean sex is the cure to depression.
