We’re living in interesting times, to put it mildly. While each sign of the Zodiac handles stress in their own way, some people are not coping as well with… all this. These are the Zodiac signs that are likely struggling right now.
Don’t worry, we’ve also got some tips for self-care (or helping out a friend) tailored to these Sun signs.
Cancerians have a tendency to soak up other people’s emotions like a sponge. Call them empaths or highly sensitive people–the result is still that these gentle Water signs can easily get overwhelmed and stressed in times of crisis. They can also become burnt out as they try to care for everyone else, but neglect themselves.
Self-care is legit important to this sign. It’s also key that they have a chance to relax and recharge. If you’re a Cancerian, claim a little time and space for yourself every single day. And make sure that everyone respects your need to be alone for a little while as you process.
Leo’s challenge during quarantine might not seem like a big deal at first. Nobody is happy about being separated from friends and family. So why should Leo be such a drama queen about it? The fact is that these lions cannot thrive without their loved ones. They are social extroverts, so isolation drains them of energy.
One way to feel better, dear Leo, is to take better care of your appearance. Get dressed nicely, fix your hair, and make sure you look good even if you’re not going out. That small routine will do a lot to boost your mood. You should also schedule regular chats with your loved ones. A Zoom call is better than nothing!
Capricorn has stuff to do, okay? And between the pandemic and the protests and the economic crash, that stuff is not getting done. There’s nothing more frustrating to a Capricorn than an unfinished to-do list. Unfortunately, there’s not much that can be done about the state of the world right now–which is not something this sign wants to hear.
The only thing you can control right now is your reaction to challenges. Work on accepting that some projects will simply have to be put on hold. It might also be a good idea to get a little more physical activity to burn off some of that frustration.
Pisces and crises might rhyme, but they do not go great together. These tender little fishies are deeply sensitive. Like Cancerians, they can become overwhelmed by stress and negative emotions. Pisces also gets caught in endless anxiety spirals as their imagination runs wild with worst-case scenarios.
Meditation, talking to a friend, and journaling can all help you get through this. You might also consider taking up a new hobby–one that keeps your hands and mind busy so that you don’t start worrying again.
