As we grow up, stress—just like change—seems to become a constant in our lives. Pretty inevitable though, given the busy lives we live, especially in metropolitan cities. If all those online reads (and apps) on ways to reduce stress didn’t do you much good, then chances are, they’re probably too generic for you. You need something that specifically panders to your way of life, and what better than your zodiac sign to help you determine that, huh?
This one’s for all those struggling with stress on a daily basis, due to work or life.

Zodiac Sign: Aries
Aries, with a pace and energy to match that of a ram’s, tend to take on everything that comes their way. Their in-built energy keeps them from ever taking breathers to slow down.
What an Aries needs: Sports
To manifest all that energy in the right way, without threatening their pace because they cannot slow down.
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Taureans are hard workers. Their inability to take downfalls and failures lightly leads them to working and wearing themselves out which can cause stress.
What a Taurus needs: Self indulgence
Being hedonistic by nature, indulging in materialistic comforts feels like a reward.
Zodiac Sign: Gemini
Being the complex signs that Geminis are, their minds can’t ever keep calm. They’re often found microscopically deducing each and every situation in their head to the point of exhaustion.
What a Gemini needs: Engagement
Geminis are social creatures. The more they’re involved in talks, the lesser they will be in thoughts.
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
Cancerians live in a perpetual fear of being hurt or misunderstood so they wall up their feelings till they finally break. This walling up of emotions is what stresses them as there’s no source for them to vent out what’s inside.
What a Cancer needs: Communication
To have someone to talk to, to pour out their emotions, and to feel secure again is all a Cancerian really needs.
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Leos put the ‘freak’ in control freak. Born leaders, Leos like to be in control of everything in life. Their need for controlling is such that a Leo is capable of draining himself out in pursuit of being the one to make all the calls.
What a Leo needs: Music
While it may be difficult for these lion-borns to keep their controlling tendencies at bay, music helps them relax and zone out.
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
Virgos have a reputation for being quite the perfectionists. Their logical and methodical natures make them good problem solvers. However, weighing down the pros and cons to everything certainly has a downside—stress.
What a Virgo needs: Cleaning
An unkempt room or their own emotional mess, a Virgo will thrive in situations that need fixing up—so keep them busy!
Zodiac Sign: Libra
Confrontation is what stresses out a Libran. Represented by the Scales, Librans like to maintain a harmonious inner balance and often get stressed out when an external entity tries to disrupt it.
What a Libra needs: Therapy
Could be talking to a best friend or going out on a shopping-spree, a Libra must do whatever it takes to regain their equilibrium.
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Being that intense ought to be exhausting for the Scorpio—but that’s just how it is for them. One couldn’t really decipher just how deep a Scorpion ran, so they tend to deal with their inner battles by themselves, which can be hella tiring!
What a Scorpio needs: Water bodies
Being fixated water signs, leaving a Scorpio alone near any water body helps them keep calm and re-energize.
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Constantly on the move and always on to the next thing, a Sagittarius can feel extremely stressed out if made to halt or feel constricted. Being independent is imperative for this fire sign, even when in a relationship.
What a Sagittarius needs: Exploring
Travel gives Sagittarians the freedom they seek, while exploring satiates their desire to discover all that that’s odd and new.
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
One with a game plan for everything, a Capricorn can feel pretty stressed out if they’re unable to see progress. Constantly monitoring their growth and switching trails, the ultimate motto for the mountain goat is to keep moving upwards.
What a Capricorn needs: Me time
Breathe a little, Capri. But don’t be surprised if this meant more game plans for that’s probably just how they destress!
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
Being a visionary can be hella stressful especially when no one seems to understand where you’re coming from. Aquarius knows that he/she isn’t everyone’s cuppa tea, but standing out could also make them feel left out.
What a Aquarius needs: Connection
Pick their brains, dig a little deeper. Aquarian minds run deep; so any philosophical talks about the universe and they’re game!
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
Pisces like to stay calm and under the radar, so loud and noisy situations are far from ideal for them. Being exposed is another thing that could trigger their stress levels for it’d be an unholy invasion of their personal space.
What a Pisces needs: Escape
When a Pisces feels threatened, their first instinct is to escape reality. So be it painting, meditating or day-dreaming, Pisces will find its way.
