Get a Grip: How the Signs Deal with Stress

Get a Grip: How the Signs Deal with Stress
Are you feeling frantic and frazzled? Every sign has its own way of coping with stress, especially during a challenging economy. Look to the heavens on how best to get a grip!

Gemini scatters -- even more than usual -- in all directions at once. Their best course of action is to center themselves and find a grounding activity that keeps their hands busy and engages their body. It's crucial they stop chasing their thoughts around in circles.

Virgo throws their mind into work when they get agitated, something that can cause them to run out of gas. They need relaxing candlelit baths, soothing massages and nature walks. Getting reconnected to Mother Earth definitely slows down their nervous twitches.

Aquarius needs to get more in touch with their feelings, for it's unattended emotions that cause much of their stress. By allowing themselves to sink into their watery depths and own up to what's in their heart, they'll start to unwind.

Pisces is a delicate soul who soaks up the anxieties of others, so their first order of business should be to move themselves away from jittery, needy companions. They'll feel badly about it, but self-protection must come first. They crave peace -- and that's what they must give themselves!

Libra gets thrown off balance more easily than their calm exterior suggests. Finding an equilibrium is always vital to prevent them from slipping into a frenzy. They require beauty to calm their souls, and harmony in their relationships is crucial to them.

Leo is dependent on approval and recognition; take that away and they'll begin to feel as if they no longer exist. They need to find their true center, no matter what the world around them is doing.

What sends Cancer and Scorpio to the edge is the agony of feeling too much. They need to learn detachment, the wonderful ability Air signs possess that allows them to step back and not be pulled under by their powerful emotions.

Aries and Sagittarius can be prone to burnout. As hyperactive Fire signs, they rarely stand still long enough to replenish their batteries. What will get them back on track is getting in touch with their body, eating sensibly, indulging in sensory joys and letting their hearts do the talking.

Taurus doesn't much believe in nervous funks or anything too neurotic. Still, they can become stressed if there's too much change occurring around them. Flexibility -- of body and attitude -- is key for them, though this tends to go against their fixed-sign grain.

Capricorn isn't so prone to getting the nervous jitters, though they can seriously overwork themselves when times are challenging. They need to nurture their body and steer themselves away from their obsession to constantly achieve. Allowing more emotion into their lives in small ways will also help soften their rigidity.
