Love and relationships can be a challenge for anyone. Everyone has their fears and worries about what will happen to them if they give themselves to another person and expose themselves to them. Often these fears can stop people from following their hearts and being with the person of their dreams.
Everyone is different, and so is every zodiac sign. In fact, each one has their own worries and reservations when it comes to matters of the heart. This is what each zodiac sign fears most about love.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re the kind of person that prefers logic to feelings, as well as wanting to do things by yourself. Unfortunately for you, in love, logic is often thrown out the window and you will have to accept someone into your life. What you fear most in a relationship is losing your freedom.
Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20)
A lack of self-awareness is your biggest issue in relationships. Although you know that it’s not the best idea, you constantly change to be everything for everyone. Because of that, you fear not knowing who you’ll really be when you get close to someone.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your sign is notorious for wanting to do things your own way. Control and strength are two of your most powerful traits and you don’t want to give them up. The idea of relying on others, even for love, completely terrifies you. You don’t want to let other people know how much you need them and risk losing your independence.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Commitment is a serious affair for you. When you make that commitment to someone, you mean it for good, that’s why you take so long to choose the right person. However, you have a much bigger fear when it comes to love. Relationships are constantly growing and evolving, but you’re afraid of the change. You’d much rather stay at a comfortable standstill.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Let’s face it, you get bored very easily. You like a change of scenery quite often and never stay in one place long enough to establish your roots. Because of that, you fear two things in a relationship. You’re afraid of becoming bored if you stay with someone for too long. As well as that, you’re terrified that your partner will eventually see your dark side.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Since you’re the most sensitive and nurturing of the signs, you’d think that you might have it easy in love. However, that’s not really the case. What you fear most is exposing yourself to someone and leaving yourself open to being hurt by the person that you love.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
Your biggest problem in love is your need for control. Normally, you like to be the person who’s in charge, and quite often people are willing to let you. Unfortunately, you’ll have to let go of this control is you want your relationships to work, even if it is terrifying for you.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
A feeling of unworthiness is the root of all your problems in love. You worry that if you reveal your imperfections, other people will turn their backs on you. What you fear most is committing yourself to someone and not being able to keep up the high standards you have of yourself.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
In every part of your life, you work to keep things beautiful and bright, even if that’s not the reality of things. You tend to sweep everything negative under the rug instead of dealing with it. In love, you’re terrified of the messy emotions and problems that come with it.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your sign tends to be quite intense and brutally honest, despite hiding their deepest feelings. Because of this, people can often feel threatened by you. You fear that if you let down your intense front and allow people to come into your life, you’ll be betrayed.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You cherish your freedom and are often regarded as a carefree spirit. What terrifies you in relationships is getting trapped into a commitment with someone, only to end up feeling bored and boxed in.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
No matter what happens, you want others to see you as strong. Because of that, you tend to shy away from showing you emotions and vulnerability. Your biggest fear when it comes to love is opening up to someone and letting them see the real you. You’re petrified that it will make you appear weak and shatter the illusion of your invulnerable nature.
Love can be extremely challenging. It brings up our deepest anxieties and can force us to hold back on how we really feel. It’s not easy feeling exposed to people, even the people that you love the most. Still, every sign will need to learn how to overcome that if they want to experience real love.
