When Does Each Zodiac Sign Get stressed out:
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
They get stressed when they have too much on their plate. Their decision-making skills become jammed, and they can’t trust others with their work.
When it comes to their work life, Aries is a confident professional who likes to handle all the important work. They don’t like passing on their workload, which could have eased the pressure on them. So if they’re unable to work one day, the amount of work that piles up, makes this zodiac sign feel overwhelmed and stressed out.
You need to take time off and relax the entire day, at least once a week.
Also, others need to stay out of the Aries firing range because they tend to take out their stress on others!

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Dealing with changes and accepting new situations in life makes them feel very stressed out.
The Taurus personality is competent. So if a great opportunity comes up, they will surely accept it. But they are also people who love stability in life. Hence, when that great, new opportunity entails beginning a new job and moving house, it triggers their stress buttons. It’s more difficult for them to adjust to the new than to let go of the old.
Taureans aren’t good at recognizing stress. The symptoms are high blood pressure and a tendency to be careless and accident-prone.

Geminis are restless souls and also very intelligent and quick-thinking. Hence, they constantly need fresh challenges in their professional and personal lives. Repetitive work and a boring relationships are their worst nightmares.

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
They get stressed out dwelling unduly on all the different ways in which their lives could go wrong.

They are very attached to their families and tend to overthink about their people’s wellbeing and safety. They create unrealistic situations in their mind, like “What if there’s an accident?”, “What if my loved ones have a fatal disease?”, and so on– and get very stressed in the process.
Symptoms of stress include sleeping disorders and nightmares. A Cancer tends to retreat into his/her shell when stressed out, but it’s important for others to get them talking about their worries.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
They get stressed out when they feel like they are no longer relevant and have lost their position in the spotlight.
Leos are capable and confident people and want their talents to be noticed and praised all the time. When they don’t get that attention from the world, they question if they have reached their expiry date. This sends them into freak-out mode immediately. This happens when they feel their talents have been outshone or their attractiveness has faded.
How stressed out they feel is evident in how desperately they try to regain the center stage.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Bottled up emotions and overthinking makes them feel stressed out.
Virgos have a reputation of being the perfectionists among the signs. But when it comes of handling complicated emotions, they struggle as much as the rest of us, and things turn messy in their minds quickly.
They also tend to overthink everything. Especially, when something unfamiliar and new comes up; their initial reaction is worrying and stressing out.
You will know they are stressed when they come down with strange physical ailments, which is actually a sign that they are trying to cope with something massive mentally.
