How do you express emotions? Do you tend to speak your mind or gulp down your feelings? Your zodiac holds the answer!
Each individual expresses emotions uniquely according to their personality. Hence it’s no surprise that each zodiac sign tells a different story about the ways to express emotions.
Our zodiac personalities have a great influence on the way we process our feelings and our ability or inability to express emotions.
Ultimately, we all feel emotions deeply, but how we deal with them and express them makes all the difference!
So, without further delay, let’s closely inspect the 12 emotional zodiac signs and how well they can express emotions!
Zodiac Emotions: How You Express Emotions Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Here’s how each zodiac sign acts when they feel emotional:
1. Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Experience sudden floods of emotions and fits of rage. When they can’t ruminate on their feelings, it triggers stress and alienation.
Aries move through life at a speed faster than all the other signs. Hence, they have no time to ponder on their emotions, which is not healthy because Arians become stressed and hostile when they’re unable to deal with their feelings.
It is not uncommon for Arians to experience a sudden flood of emotions and experience bursts of rage. They are hot-headed.
On the other hand, Aries people want the world to perceive them as strong individuals, hence, they aren’t comfortable sharing their innermost feelings with just about anyone.
As a result, their overwhelming emotions often come out as toxic self-sabotaging behavior, picking unnecessary fights, and reckless behavior.
They must find healthy ways to express emotions and channel their energy into physical exercises. This will offer an outlet and a chance to calm down.
2. Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Dislike being seen as weak and vulnerable, and like to work through their emotions alone until they get past the messy days.
Usually, the Taurus is an easy-going personality and hates having to feel weak and vulnerable. When they are upset and emotional, they go off the radar and retreat into their hideout.
They take their own time to come to terms with their feelings, and you’ll never know how messed up this phase is for them because they won’t emerge until they’re over it.
Since Taureans are very sensual beings, their emotional phases must include good food and music that syncs with their mood. Next time you notice your Taurus friend missing out on group activities, you can guess that they are going through something deep.
3. Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Except for some subtle signs that they give away, it’s hard to understand how they feel; they rely on their loved ones to figure it out.
Geminis are those jolly humans who always put a smile on other people’s faces and try to ensure that everything is happy and lighthearted. It’s quite hard to understand what Geminis are going through.
If you look closely enough, you’ll probably be able to see subtle changes in their behavior that are indicative of something bigger. A drop in their clever remarks, being lost in thought, and in general, an overall quieter attitude.
If left to themselves, they’ll never talk about it, instead, wallow in their sadness. It’s ironic that they’re generally good with verbal communication, but struggle to find the right words to express emotions.
They depend on their loved ones to figure things out when they are not feeling fine emotionally.
4. Cancer (June 21- July 20)
Very sensitive and they experience frequent emotional whims and can burst into tears of sadness as well as happiness at a second’s notice.
When Cancer feels emotional, the entire world knows about it. Their eyes say it all, just look into a Cancer’s eyes to understand exactly how they’re feeling.
They are one of the moodiest zodiacs out there and can as easily burst into tears of happiness as they can cry you a river when depressed.
Their emotional whims are frequent, and they must share their sorrows with trusted people, otherwise, they will just break to pieces. Some people might perceive Cancers to be clingy and needy and easily upset. We don’t. Their caring nature is their strength.
5. Leo (July 21 – Aug 20)
Like to make a dramatic show of their emotions and keep venting or ranting about their feelings.
Leos are the most dramatic of all the zodiac signs. When they are going through heavy feelings, expect a theatrical show of emotions. With their fire and passion, Leos can blow things out of proportion.
If you’re thinking of talking to them when they’re feeling upset, let me tell you that the conversations will most likely be one-sided.
Your helpful inputs will have to wait until they express all their deepest emotions. No doubt it’s fascinating to watch, but can be pretty infuriating too.
Leos can’t easily let go, especially when they feel they have been wronged. So, they will make sure everyone gets a piece of their mind, no matter the repercussion.
6. Virgo (Aug 21 – Sep 20)
Obsess and micro-analyze every emotion, turning it into a nightmare. Needs to figure things out themselves and neutralize conflicting emotions.
Logical-minded Virgos micro-analyze every emotion they feel, turning the whole thing into a nightmare. They try to maneuver through their emotions analytically, but emotions are anything but logical, so this approach can easily backfire.
Frankly speaking, Virgos freak out when thrown into an emotional pit. But once they begin to cool off, they take the necessary steps to figure things out and neutralize conflicting emotions.
7. Libra (Sep 21- Oct 20)
They avoid expressing emotions as much as possible because they don’t want to rock the boat. Resorts to self-destructive behaviors.
Libra tries to avoid getting too emotional because they don’t want to rock the world with their feelings. It makes sense because this zodiac is all about balance.
However, when their emotional scales are tipped, they become a mess. They have difficulty opening up about deep emotions.
They resort to self-harming practices and may have repressed emotions that can backfire in the future, sometimes damaging their relationships.
But when they are in a happy place, they know how to express emotions in a positive way and enjoy it to the fullest.
8. Scorpio (Oct 21- Nov 20)
Intense and volatile, they rub off their feelings on everyone. They need to do something with their feelings and can’t keep them bottled up.
Scorpios are intense and very passionate, so whatever they are feeling, it’s very deep. This might be a surprising find about them because they appear to be big stoics at first.
Their feelings are so volatile and strong that they rub off on everyone around them. They typically don’t know how to express emotions in a healthy way. Scorpios hold grudges and don’t let people forget either, so remain wary of an emotional backlash.
9. Sagittarius (Nov 21- Dec 20)
Don’t get provoked easily, but tends to camouflage their emotions with humor.
They try hard to avoid unpleasant feelings as much as possible, as this sign is all about positivity and good vibes.
They don’t like to address difficult emotions or have a difficult conversation. So, they hide their feelings under humor and banter and pretend to be fine.
Unable to express emotions properly, they prefer to be nonchalant about their feelings and appear to be casual even when they’re feeling deeply disturbed inside.
10. Capricorn (Dec 21- Jan 20)
Being naturally pessimistic, they don’t get stirred easily by negativities. Vulnerable regarding matters of the heart.
Capricorns have an innate realistic ( read pessimistic) mindset, hence they expect life to throw unfortunate situations now and then. It takes a lot for a Capricorn to get deeply emotional.
When experiencing heavy emotions, they retreat inwards and overthink. They are particularly affected by matters of the heart. They really don’t know how to express emotions in a relationship and that’s why often get misunderstood.
In such cases, they only open up and break down all their issues to a trusted person.
So if Capricorns express their emotions with you, it’s reason enough to feel special.
11. Aquarius (Jan 21- Feb 20)
They want to believe nothing’s the matter until it is too late and their emotions have turned into poison. An emotional outlet is essential.
Aquarians like to float on the surface of things rather than go deep, so they have a natural tendency to avoid heavy emotions. And since they avoid their emotions all the time, their reactions are delayed.
Having an emotional vent is essential for them as suppressing feelings can lead to deep-seated issues. A great thing about Aquarians is that when dealing with someone going through a bad phase, they can channel their own emotions to help that other person.
12. Pisces (Feb 21 – Mar 20)
Sentimental and deeply emotional, they have much sadness in their hearts. The best way to deal with heaviness is to channel them into something creative.
Sentimental is a defining characteristic of the Pisces personality. They have an infinite well of emotions and sadness inside their hearts. But if you know a Piscean well, you can’t deny that their emotions are the reason why you find them so interesting.
They are the people who can suffer a lot but also thrive when they’re feeling overly emotional. The best way a Piscean can deal with their emotions is to channel their heaviness into something productive or creative and remain focused with a calm mind.
So that’s all about how each zodiac expresses emotions. We believe you found helpful tips on how to express your emotions in a healthy way. If you often asked yourself “Why can’t I express my emotions”, we also believe now you have got some insights into that too.
