Vacation season brings dreams of faraway beaches, exotic romances and languorous days by the pool. But it can also bring tremors of panic about stripping off layers of clothes. If the idea of baring your body brings waves of fear and embarrassment, your self-esteem could probably use a positive jolt.
You don't have to drop pounds or hit the gym relentlessly -- you just need to feel good about yourself. If you love your body, you'll give off a vibrant glow and you won't care if you don't look absolutely perfect.
Taurus can veer to the slightly rounded due to their indulgences, but are perfectly content within their frame and don't care too much about what anyone else thinks.
Virgo can be prudish (at least on the surface), and so tends to cover themselves up rather than throw caution to the wind. Once relaxed, though, they can be true to their earthy animal nature.
Likewise, uptight Capricorn sometimes requires persuasion to unwind and be bold about their bodies. But once pushed onto the right track, they can become as sensuous -- if not even more so -- than Taurus.
For outright sensuality, there's no sign like Scorpio, although they're not ones to relish too much open exposure. They know their body is their ticket to transcendental bliss, so they don't need too many lessons in loving their physical frame.
Then there are the adventurous signs -- Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius –- who aren't innately connected to their bodies. By the same token, they also don't give too much thought to what others think, so they'll flaunt, flirt and frolic around quite happily.
Leo, Cancer and Libra can be a touch too self-conscious to enjoy full exposure. They care a great deal about approval, so they'll pore over their supposed physical imperfections and wince; still, they're in better physical shape than most, since they make an effort to keep themselves streamlined.
Finally, Aquarius and Pisces are the least physical signs in the zodiac. Aquarius folks are often too involved in their own heads and don't want to descend into the realm of the flesh more than necessary. Pisces, meanwhile, is lost in their world of daydreams and knows they'll never match up to airbrushed perfection. For both, it will take willful effort -- and a good deal of faith -- to become fully comfortable within their own bodies.
