We all feel a little insecure sometimes. But maybe some signs are inclined to be more insecure than others. Today we are ranking the signs from most to least self-confident. Read on to find out which signs tend to be the most self-conscious.
Capricorns are calm, cool, and charismatic. Can you tell I love alliteration? They are the most secure sign because they have the most confidence in themselves and their abilities. That is not to say they never feel insecure. They sometimes worry that they may let their loved ones down. But at the end of the day, they are self-assured of their capabilities.
If your Capricorn loved one starts feeling insecure, try to reassure them by validating their efforts.
Taureans are just as calm and capable as Capricorn. Because they are so dependable by nature, they feel like they can easily depend on themselves. However, they can still feel a little insecure if they feel like they are being taken for granted.
If your Taurean loved one is feeling insecure, show some appreciation for all of the ways they help those around them.
The fixed fire sign radiates confidence and positive energy. They know that they light up any room that they enter. They also don’t need anyone to validate their fabulousness because they are quite aware of how fabulous they are. However, their egos can get bruised easily and their fire can be put out.
If your Leo loved one is feeling insecure, a genuine compliment and quality time can help reignite their spark.
Aquarians are pretty secure with themselves because they are not driven by the need to be liked by everyone. Of course, they want the people whom they love to love them back, but they don’t need everyone to love them. They can, however, feel quite dejected if they sense they have been left out.
If your Aquarian loved one is feeling insecure, invite them out to lunch or offer to hang out with them.
Sagittarius could probably be tied with Aquarius in this spot. The mutable fire sign is just as entertaining and confident as Leo. And like Aquarius, they don’t need to be liked by everyone. But a lot of their self-worth is tied to how intellectual they are, and they can become quite put out if their intelligence is called into question.
If your Sagittarian loved one is feeling insecure, try to engage them in a topic that you know they are passionate about.
Cancerians may be sensitive but that doesn’t mean that they are insecure. Like their fellow aforementioned cardinal sign, they are confident in their abilities, especially their creative abilities. And they know the value that they bring to the lives around them. But they can still be a bit overly sensitive, especially when their feelings are hurt.
If your Cancerian loved one is feeling insecure, try sitting with them and letting them cry or vent to you without judgment.
Libra is the most insecure of the secure signs. They are one of the more sociable and popular signs, so they certainly exude confidence. But their need to people-please at all times can make them less confident in their actions.
If your Libra loved one is feeling insecure, spend some quality time with them where they don’t feel like they have to entertain you.
Here is something you may not know about the vernal firecracker. Aries are the biggest crybabies in the entire zodiac. Being one, I should know. You could argue that they are more sensitive than Cancer and Pisces combined. But they are not insecure because they lack self-esteem. All fire signs are quite passionate and as the cardinal fire sign, they tend to feel every emotion quite strongly. So when they feel self-conscious, their insecurity gets cranked up to eleven.
If your Aries loved one starts feeling insecure, try to reassure them without invalidating them.
Air signs are known to be quite intellectual, and they are usually driven by their thoughts rather than their feelings. But Gemini has a tendency to overthink. They tend to read into every little thing a person does and jump to wild conclusions. Because of this, their thoughts can become erratic and can contribute to their insecurities.
If your Gemini loved one starts to feel insecure, try your best to talk them through each scenario that pops into their head. Sometimes verbalizing scenarios can help them realize how unlikely they are.
It may be hard to understand why a stable earth sign made this list. Virgos are known to be practical and dedicated. But as pragmatic as they are, they can still be quite timid. Like Gemini, their anxiety can cause them to overthink a situation. They are very strong and capable, but their nervousness can cause them to experience imposter syndrome.
If your Virgo loved one is feeling insecure, It may help to show them a little appreciation for all of the hard work that they do.
I know what you’re thinking, “how can one of the sexiest signs in the zodiac be insecure?” The root of their insecurity lies in their envious nature. Even when they try to push their jealousy aside, it can be difficult for them not to compare themselves to others. Some Scorpios deal with this envy by overcompensating with haughtiness. But some of the more sensitive Scorpios give in to their insecurities.
If your Scorpio loved one is feeling insecure, you can help them by boosting their confidence and reminding them of their many accomplishments.
There sure are a lot of mutable signs on this list. I mentioned in this article that Pisces are empathic, meaning they can sense, and in some cases, feel the emotions of others. And if they sense that someone is mad or annoyed with them, it can cause them to spiral and assume the worst of the situation and themselves. Pisces are hypersensitive and have a tendency towards escapism, so when they are dealing with feelings of insecurity, they tend to retreat within themselves.
If your Pisces loved one is feeling insecure, it may help to communicate your true thoughts and feelings with them so they don’t misread cues and overthink.
Ophiuchus is very insecure about the fact that they don’t exist.
