Boundaries: Protect Your Energy

Boundaries: Protect Your Energy
Though it's certainly important to be there for those you love, do you feel as if others sometimes have the tendency to take advantage of your kindness? Are there people in your life who are often in need, yet unwilling to do the slightest thing to help themselves? Learn how to use your Sun sign to disarm anyone who threatens to usurp your energy!

Aries
Among all the Sun signs, you're least likely to succumb to an energy vampire. You may feel tempted to be a hero by rescuing someone who's playing the victim ... but you'll encourage them to rescue themselves instead.

Taurus
As one of the most grounded signs in the zodiac, you seem to attract people who are constantly in crisis. You can minimize this by helping others create their own stability, rather than being the one who creates stability for them.

Gemini
You tend to attract people who like to chit-chat, which can deplete your time and energy. How can you help yourself in such a situation? Know when (and how) to stop a conversation that's going nowhere, and set limits on how much time you give to others.

Cancer
As the most nurturing sign of the zodiac, you attract people who like to take advantage of the amount of attention you offer them. Mother yourself first and keep tabs on what you need -- then dole out support to others!

Leo
Your optimistic personality can often attract those who tend to be down in the dumps. Do what you can for them, but as soon as you start feeling drained, either take some alone time or surround yourself with people who are fun!

You enjoy being of service to others, so you have a tendency to allow people to treat you like a doormat. Learn to ask for equitable give-and-take, and stop providing help to those who don't give back.

Libra
With your tendency to people-please, you may attract those with bullying personalities. If you can learn to say no to people who constantly expect you to give in, you'll learn how to satisfy yourself in the process.

Scorpio
You have a gift for helping people through difficult times, but when it comes to those who can't seem to improve their situation regardless of how much emotional support you provide, be sure to direct them towards professionals.

Sagittarius
Your freedom-loving spirit is adept at moving away from people who require constant help, but you can still find yourself trapped by people who depend on you for excitement. Challenge them to come up with interesting activities you can enjoy together.

Capricorn
Tired of being the responsible one? Set time-limit boundaries with those who depend on you for financial or moral support. After all, you aren't a bank ... even though others may sometimes treat you like one!

Aquarius
It's your nature to want to help make the world a better place for everyone, but you can be susceptible to people who prey upon your humanitarian values. Stay true to yourself, but also beware of those who ask for too much.

Pisces
Your sensitivity to suffering makes you want to relieve others from such a fate. Protect yourself by spending time in nature -- especially near water -- to help relieve any emotional overload you may be experiencing.
