Staying stagnant triggers depression for Aries. Aries love exercise and playing. They adore exploring and going on adventures. If they stay inside working a 9-5 every work day, they are slowly going to run our of steam and will start feeling blue.


(April 20th to May 21st)

For a Taurus, they try really hard to look like they have everything together. Unfortunately, they try so hard to achieve perfection, that they end up hurting themselves in the long run because ‘perfection’ isn’t a reality.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Being bored and staying in the same place for a long time can cause Gemini to go in a downward spiral. They always have to be trying something new and getting out of their comfort zone. If they aren’t pushing themselves, this will cause them to feel like they aren’t good enough and they will start to lack pleasure in every little thing.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Since Cancer’s are usually prone to feeling everything all at once, their episodes of depression or anxiety can be extreme. They are so in tune to their own feelings, and once they start feeling down, they isolate themselves. In order to feel better, they have to surround themselves with loved ones constantly.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

For Leo’s, their depression is usually caused by something from the past. They don’t know how to let go of their past mistakes and their past relationships and loves. They need to learn how to let go of toxic things and people that are holding them back.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

For Virgo’s, they are usually triggered by lack of self esteem. They try so hard to maintain a steady stream of confidence within themselves, but they easily get caught up in what people say about them behind their backs.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

For a Libra, lack of having others around them triggers their depression. They always need to have friends and family around them at all times, in order to not fall in the slope that is their loneliness and sadness. They don’t know how to be alone and be okay with that.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

For Scorpios, not having time alone definitely triggers you. You need time to recharge and get your energy up. If you’re always with others, you feel unlike yourself because you don’t have enough energy to even get through the day.

For this sign, they become depressed because they give so much to others. They never take time for themselves because they are such people pleasers. They need to be able to treat themselves in order to get out of this funk.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

For Capricorns, they always need perfection. They always need to be in control at all times. Unfortunately, they can become their own worst enemy because in life you can’t control everything.


(January 21st to February 18th)

For this sign, they are normally upbeat and cheerful. However, sometimes their depression can be triggered from feeling misunderstood and like they don’t belong anywhere. Even with their best friends, sometimes they feel like they belong in a different world.


(February 19th to March 20th)

What triggers Pisces’s depression is playing pretend. They act like they have everything together. They always put on a facade no matter who they are with. They have a major guard up, and they can’t connect to anyone because they are so afraid of getting hurt. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
