We all deal with stress in our own ways, and while some signs shut down, others push through. The more you know how your zodiac sign works with this kind of thing, the more you can work to counter stress as a whole.

I know, getting rid of stress completely isn’t possible, but if you know how you deal with it and make changes as needed, you can really progress in big ways. Relieving stress is important and well as time passes you’re going to be able to do a lot more to help yourself more properly the better you understand what you’re already doing as a whole. I know, this might sound odd but take a look below and see if it fits your sign.


As an Aries, when it comes to stress, you deal with it by throwing yourself further into your work. You’re a workaholic, that much is clear, but you also feel like being busy helps keep your mind at ease. While this is true, you do need time to really sit and think alone, which you don’t really get enough of.


As a Taurus, relieving stress for you is all about bringing a smile to someone else’s face. You love seeing the people around you happy, and you’ll typically go out of your way to brighten the day of another person. This, however, leaves you behind sometimes.


As a Gemini, you tend to dwell on things until you just stop worrying about them. You’re someone who overstresses a lot and that can bring you down big time. Sometimes you throw yourself into hobbies, but overall you deal with things emotionally a lot better than most and know that if you don’t let yourself address the things within you’re only going to end up festering for longer.


As a Cancer, you deal with stress by focusing on other people. You as the Taurus does love helping other people, but you do it to a fault. You always do far more than you should, and it leaves you getting left out in the cold more often than not.


As a Leo, you’re the kind of person who just ignores stress. Sure, you might be under a lot of pressure, but no one else would be able to see it. You don’t fall apart unless you’re alone and able to do-so without anyone else noticing.

For Leos and others who keep it all in, “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself” by Michael A. Singer could be a transformative read, helping to explore the inner self and find peace within.


As a Virgo, relieving stress for you is all about meditating. Now, you might not call it meditating, but that’s exactly what you’re doing when you clear your mind and try to be more in the moment. You take serious note of all the small things, which isn’t a bad thing.


As a Libra, letting go of stress is easier said than done. However, when you’re facing it, you tend to set smaller goals and focus on the positives. This helps you to feel better overall and puts you in a much better mood about the things you’re facing.


As a Scorpio, you face the issues head on. If something or someone is bugging you, you work through it and talk things out. You don’t leave anything in the dark.


As a Sagittarius, you’re the kind of person who handles issues overall pretty well. That being said, when you’re overly stressed, you tend to fly the coop. As a sign that is known for being flighty, this really fits you, but also does you no favors.


As a Capricorn, relieving stress for you is all about writing out your feelings. You like to get things out on paper or in your notes on your phone. This is a wonderful way to deal with stress and honestly, you’re one of the signs that’s typically on top of it.

For Capricorns and anyone who finds solace in journaling, “The Mindfulness Journal: Daily Practices, Writing Prompts, and Reflections for Living in the Present Moment” by S.J. Scott and Barrie Davenport can be an excellent tool to navigate and document one’s journey through stress.


As an Aquarius, you tend to get rebellious when you’re under a lot of stress. You lash out and do things you wouldn’t typically do. This might make you feel a bit better, but it doesn’t resolve the issue at hand.


As a Pisces, you throw yourself into the things you’re passionate about to keep your mind off of the things before you. This is both good and bad, depending on what you’re facing. However, it can bring forth some interesting art and things of that sort.
