We all get into that retrospective zone time and again, where we try and get a deeper insight into ourselves. Because let's face it, we find our own selves the biggest mystery on this planet! Or worse, when you just cannot get along with your BFF/SO, it's good to step back and try and understand their behaviour, just a little better.
On that note, here's a breakdown on our innermost fears, as written in our stars!
1. Aries (March 21-April 19)
Kathisophobia - Fear Of Sitting Down
Probably the most dynamic sign out of all the zodiacs, Aries love a challenge every now and then. The warrior 'ram' yearns for exciting challenges and love the thrill they derive from it's accomplishment. They throw themselves into combat not only because they want to win, but because it's in their nature. Hence, if there's something that makes them shudder to their very core, is having to lead a static, monotonous life, which is too simple. We bet the most competitive friend in your #GirlSquad is an Aries!
2. Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Metathesiophobia - Fear of Unexpected Change
Being an earth sign, the 'bull' is associated with being grounded, and as someone who has a very deep set of principles. They like to be secure and stable - emotionally as well as financially. A Taurean prioritizes their close friends and family over everything else, and any unforeseen change or turn of events, totally disturbs them!
3. Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Decidophobia - Fear of making decisions
If you've left the decision of where you're going to eat tonight on your Gemini roomie/SO, you better snack up in time. It will take them absolutely forever to fixate on a decision, and you will inevitably end up cooking at home, crushing your gastronomical fantasies! The Gemini 'twins' are notorious for being indecisive, as their dual personality, is perpetually in conflict. So you will probably see a Gemini run for his life, if he/she is supposed to take a crucial call.
4. Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Agoraphobia - Fear of places and situations that might cause panic
Just like a crab feels safest in it's own shell, a typical Cancerian trait is, that they crave safe and warm surroundings, typically associated with home. They tend to isolate themselves in an attempt to crawl into their safe zone. If your cancer friend is behaving moody and aloof, they are probably insecure around you, and don't trust you much, just saying!
5. Leo (July 23-August 22)
Athazagoraphobia - Fear of being forgotten or ignored
The last thing you should do, is steal the thunder of your Leo friend. She will roar! The lion loves, rather needs attention and cannot stand being ignored. Either through their wardrobes, their body language or the way they express themselves, Leos manage to grab the attention of everyone. Their biggest fear is, walking into a room and going unnoticed, and they try to do everything in their power to catch the limelight!
6. Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Ataxophobia - Fear of disorder or untidiness
If you're one of those people who actually find everything at the right place in their apartment, chances are, you or your roommate, are a Virgo. The slightest bit of disorganization in their personal lives or their physical world can trigger feelings of despair for Virgos. They are walking-talking examples of OCD, and if you've moved the sofa, or folded the bedsheet wrong, get ready to face a thunderstorm at home. Yikes!
7. Libra (September 23-October 22)
Isolophobia - Fear of being alone, or in solitude
Considered as the romantic sign of all, commitment and being relationship-oriented, come easy to them. They are balanced people in life generally, and nothing scares them more than being abandoned. Popular for being the intelligent, loving, passionate one amongst their friends - Libras find it hard to imagine spending their lives alone. Because nothing frightens them more. Period.
8. Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Proditiophobia - Fear of being betrayed by one a loved one
Dark, deep, complex—enter Scorpio. Mysteriously dangerous, with a paralyzing sensitivity, it is actually difficult to understand what they really want. They are too afraid to show their vulnerability to the world, and attract people towards themselves only to push them away later. If you're planning to woo a Scorpion, know for sure that they will stay in their own bubble until you win their trust!
9. Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Claustrophobia - Fear of confined spaces
A born adventurer and a wanderer ruled by the planet Jupiter, nothing gives a Sagi the creeps, more than actual confined spaces or daily responsibilities that make them feel confined i.e claustrophobia. They are like wild horses who crave their own freedom and any attempt to restrain them results in utter paranoia!
10. Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Atychiphobia - Fear of failure
If you're a Capricorn, you know you're an ambitious workaholic, who strives to be the best at every venture. On the flip side, you also have a deeply embedded fear of failure. Don't let this fear demotivate you into not taking the initiative. Your stars know that you can nail it, girl!
11. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Merinthophobia - Fear of being bound
An aquarian head detests any kind of intellectual imprisonment and highly value their originality. Leave an Aquarius to make up their own minds, or leave them alone. They're probably much happier that way.
12. Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Hypegiaphobia - Fear of responsibility
Pisces were given the gift of unending creativity, and with that comes a total incapacity to deal with day-to-day life. Known to be the most sensitive zodiac sign, they find it extremely unnerving if someone is dependent on them for anything. We totally get it if you're unable to understand the paradoxical nature of the Piscean in your life, how they're somehow full of the wisdom of the ages, without an ounce of true maturity, at times.
