Top 6 Zodiac Signs That Are More Prone To Depression
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, various 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.
Pisces is the zodiac sign that is most likely to suffer from depression. Pisceans 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 with 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 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.
Capricorn is another zodiac sign that is more prone to depression for a few different reasons. Even though people born under this zodiac sign tend to remain calm even under pressure, when their human emotions go unexpressed, they can end up with major depression. Capricorns are gloomy and close-minded by nature and they are used to desperate situations, so depression is no big deal for them.
These people often feel like they are responsible for everyone and everything, and when they don’t live up to their own high expectations of responsibility, the guilt sets in and they quickly become depressed. They need to learn to trust themselves and other people and choose a few close, reliable friends with whom they can share their feelings when they feel sad.
Geminis are complicated people who are prone to experiencing intense emotions, whether they’re good or bad. This sign is symbolized by the Twins which means that these people have two distinct sides to their personalities. Geminis are highly intelligent, dynamic, and talkative people and they can get depressed if they fall into a boring routine or if they find themselves in a position where they can not speak and freely express their ideas.
Most of the time, their vivid imagination will keep them from falling into a routine, but even the most imaginative and creative mind will sputter and stall from time to time. While some zodiac signs prefer to suffer in silence, Geminis will project their depression and inner problems onto the outside world or choose to deal with it by being even more busy and distracted.
Taurus is also one of the zodiac signs that are most likely to get depressed. These individuals are homebodies that like the familiar and routine comfort of life. They feel most comfortable when they are at their own home or when they’re surrounded by their loved ones. Depression can hit them hard and when these people get depressed, they sleep more, overindulge in food to the point of gluttony, and want to be left alone.
However, even if they feel extremely sad and hopeless, Taureans are very private with their emotions and have a small circle of trusted confidants. Cooking, baking, or any kind of aromatherapy could easily lift their mood when they’re feeling down.
