Depression is a common and serious mental health condition that causes a persistent feeling of sadness, worthlessness, anxiety, and loss of interest in daily activities. Depression is a disorder that can hit any of us for numerous reasons and has a huge impact on our physical and mental health.
According to astrologers, depression is associated with our zodiac signs, and therefore, some signs are more prone to depression and sadness than others. Generally, those zodiac signs who are more emotional and highly intuitive are more likely to be depressed. Also, certain personality traits, such as low self-esteem, being self-critical, pessimistic, or overly dependent on other people are all associated with a greater tendency to feel hopeless and depressed.
Here are six astrological signs that are most likely to be depressed.
Pisces are the zodiac sign that is most likely to suffer from depression. Pisces were born depressed – they have a tendency towards martyrdom and self-sacrifice. These people are very kind and loving, but they can also be self-destructive, clingy, self-pitying, and out of touch with reality. They usually view life through rose-colored glasses and their dreamy outlook on life isn’t realistic, which leaves them disappointed most of the time.
When Pisceans get depressed, it’s usually because they can’t control their lives as much as they want. However, they always choose to suffer in silence and try to smile and keep their chin up, even when it’s really hard for them because they don’t want their loved ones to feel bad.
In order to avoid depression, Pisceans should stay away from self-sacrifice and stop trying to please everyone around them.

Cancer is another sign that has a huge tendency to be gloomy and depressed. These people are very sensitive, caring, compassionate, and nurturing, but they often feel as if no one cares about them.
Since Cancer is the “mother” of the zodiac, those born under this sign need to be needed; they need to be loved. They need recognition and affection in order to feel happy and emotionally secure in life.
Their depression often comes as a result of getting too involved in other people’s lives and the fact that they can’t control the sadness they feel. Cancerians find it extremely difficult to open up about their emotional needs and desires, so they also choose to suffer in silence which of course, results in depression.
The cure for their sadness is to surround themselves with friends and family who are supportive and will sympathize with their feelings.

Scorpio is a sign that feels emotions deeply and intensely, so it’s no surprise that these folks tend to suffer from depression more than the other zodiac signs. Scorpios are always emotionally invested in their personal relationships, which means that when their relationships are not working, they immediately become sad and anxious.
That’s why some of the biggest triggers of Scorpio’s depression are loneliness, loss, and separation. However, Scorpios will never admit that they are depressed and vulnerable because of the fear that someone might try to use this against them.
In order to avoid sadness, they need to learn how to control their intense emotions. They would also benefit from a friend or a trusted confidant with whom they can share their deepest thoughts and feelings anytime.
