Depression is a common and serious mental illness that causes persistent feelings of sadness, worthlessness, anxiety, and loss of interest in everyday activities. Depression is a disorder that can affect any of us for numerous reasons and has a major impact on our physical and mental health.
According to astrologers, depression is linked to our zodiac signs, and therefore some signs are more prone to depression and sadness than others. In general, those zodiac signs that are more emotional and highly intuitive are more prone to depression. Also, certain personality traits, such as low self-esteem, being self-critical, pessimistic, or overly dependent on other people, are all linked to a greater tendency to feel hopeless and depressed.
Here are six astrological signs that are most likely to be prone to depression.
Pisces are the zodiac sign most likely to suffer from depression. Pisces was born depressed – they have a tendency to 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 mostly see life through rose-colored glasses and their dreamy view of life is not realistic, which usually leaves them disappointed.
Most of the time Pisces become depressed because they can’t control their lives the way they want. However, they always choose to suffer in silence and try to smile and keep their chin up even when it is really difficult for them because they don’t want their loved ones to feel bad.
To avoid depression, Pisces should stay away from self-sacrifice and stop trying to please everyone around them.
Cancer is another sign that has a great tendency to be gloomy and depressed. These people are very sensitive, caring, compassionate, and caring, but they often feel that no one cares about them.
Since Cancer is the “mother” of the zodiac sign, those born under this sign need to be used; they have to be loved. You need recognition and affection in order to feel happy and emotionally secure in life.
Often times, their depression comes from getting too involved in other people’s lives and the fact that they cannot control the sadness they are feeling. Cancers find it extremely difficult to open up about their emotional needs and dreams, so they choose to suffer in silence as well, which naturally leads to depression.
The cure for their sadness is to surround themselves with friends and family who can support them and empathize with their feelings.
Scorpio is a sign that feels emotions deeply and intensely, so it is not surprising that these people are more prone to depression than the other zodiac signs. Scorpios are always emotionally invested in their personal relationships, which means that when their relationships don’t work out, they instantly become sad and anxious.
Therefore, some of the biggest triggers for Scorpio depression are loneliness, loss, and separation. However, Scorpios will never admit that they are depressed and vulnerable because they are afraid that someone might try to use this against them.
To avoid sadness, they need to learn how to control their intense emotions. They would also benefit from having a friend or familiar person with whom to share their deepest thoughts and feelings at any time.
Capricorn is another zodiac sign that is more prone to depression for a number of reasons. While people born under this zodiac sign tend to remain calm even under pressure, if their human feelings remain unspoken they can end up in severe depression. Capricorns are gloomy and withdrawn by nature and they are used to desperate situations so depression isn’t a big deal to them.
These people often feel that they are responsible for everything and everyone, and when they fail to live up to their own high expectations of responsibility, guilt sets in and they become depressed quickly.
You need to learn to trust yourself and other people, and choose some close, reliable friends to share your feelings with when they are sad.
Geminis are complicated people who are prone to experiencing intense emotions, whether they’re good or bad. This sign is symbolized by the Gemini, which means that these people have two different sides in their personality.
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 cannot speak and freely express their ideas.
Most of the time, her vivid imagination is supposed to keep her from falling into a routine, but even the most resourceful and creative thoughts will stutter and falter from time to time. While some zodiac signs prefer to suffer in silence, Gemini will project their depression and internal problems onto the outside world or choose to deal with them by becoming even more occupied and distracted.
Taurus is also one of the most likely signs of depression. These individuals are couch potatoes who like the familiar and routine comforts of life. They are most comfortable when they are in their own home or when they are surrounded by loved ones.
Depression can hit them hard and when these people get depressed they sleep more, overeat to the point of gluttony and want to be left alone.
But even when they feel extremely sad and hopeless, Taurus people are very private with their feelings and have a small circle of people they trust. Cooking, baking, or any type of aromatherapy can easily lift their spirits when they are feeling down.
