Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Virgo Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Virgo Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Virgo folk have low self-esteem. Does the fact that Virgo is a perfectionist mean that they continually undermine themselves? Does perfectionism equal low self-esteem?

Most people would assume that Virgo continually judges themselves against a perfected version of themselves and always feels that they have fallen short. For some Virgos that may be the case though for other Virgos the fact that they feel themselves worthy of perfecting (and having the potential to be perfect) would indicate someone who has a healthy dose of self-esteem. The fact that Virgo devotes time and energy to maintaining good health indicates that they value themselves enough not to just give up. The Virgo dedication to maintaining an orderly, clean environment along with their devotion to personal hygiene indicates a person who values themselves more highly than one might think. For many Virgos the dedication to perfection is a sign of high self-esteem. ‘I strive for perfection because I’m worth the effort’, thinks Virgo.

For many Virgos the only opinion that really matters ultimately is their own. Sure, they don’t want to be embarrassed or ridiculed nor do they want to draw attention to themselves for the wrong reasons. They do (like the rest of us) like to be thanked, congratulated and appreciated but that’s as far as the need for ego stroking by other folks goes as far as Virgo is concerned. Virgo is the sign most comfortable with celibacy and solitude so is unlikely to need the constant reassurance from others that often goes with low self-esteem.

That said, Virgo’s need to perfect themselves can sometimes go too far and lead to them constantly critiquing themselves and thus feeling that they are never, ever going to be good enough. It is when this happens that self-esteem becomes lacking.

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Leo Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Leo Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Leo folk have low self-esteem. Does the flamboyant, look at me lion have low self-esteem? Do they surround themselves with sycophants to prop up a fragile ego?

Do they? You might think that the lion’s dedication to being centre stage indicates a neediness and lack of self-esteem. You might think that the lion is a needy wannabe monarch, and some of them are, but for the most part you’d be wrong. Sure, Leo is likely to surround themselves with loyal friends and admirers but they don’t dissolve into a wailing heap once those people depart. Leo is secure in the knowledge that these people can be replaced so the lion does not need to grovel, plead or put up with being dissed in order to keep these people on board. Leo cares less about the opinions of others than you might think. They are quick to write off the opinions of those who write them off. Does this denote a defensive reaction caused by low self-esteem? Maybe, maybe not – who cares so long as it works, thinks Leo. And work it usually does. Leo places a higher value on the opinions of members of Team Leo than those of the opposition. The continual ego boost provided from the members of Team Leo helps to build the Leo self-esteem. It also helps that Leo is a fixed sign and therefore unlikely to revise their opinions any time soon. Confidence in your decision making ability tends to keep self-esteem high. If Leo thinks they are great then due to their fixed nature they are unlikely to revise that opinion. Unfortunately the same applies if they’ve decided that they are ugly and useless!

Leo will also play to their strengths and will avoid situations where they are required to do something that they are not good at. In the event that that they are required to use a skill that does not come naturally they will try to get someone else to take on the task. They will value the talents of the person who can perform that task well, just as fellow fixed sign Taurus does, but they will not put themselves out trying to acquire those skills. They will regard those skills as useful but not skills that crème de la crème need or wish to have. Leo does not feel threatened by a lack of talent in certain areas.

Like the rest of us, Leo does like to be ridiculed or to be unfairly criticised but this could hardly be regarded as having low self-esteem. If made fun of Leo will avoid the person who made fun of them. This is perfectly healthy as far as Leo is concerned. They aren’t so desperate for company that they will allow themselves to be made fun off.

Leo is often assumed to be more desperate for approval and admiration than many of them really are. Sure approval is great but it can’t be just anyone’s approval. It has to be the approval of those who matter. This attitude goes a long way when it comes to keeping Leo’s self-esteem high.

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Cancer Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Cancer Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Cancer folk have low self-esteem. Cancer born folk do tend to be regarded as having low self-esteem. Many lack confidence in their inabilities and are cripplingly shy.

Criticism hurts very deeply and deep down the hapless Cancer often sees criticism or mockery when none is intended. Remarks that other signs might shrug off can wound the Cancer badly and cause them to withdraw into their shell. Unfortunately the ‘do not come near me’ vibes that the withdrawn Cancer then gives off will ensure that they are given a wide birth isolating the Cancer still further and allowing them plenty of time to brood on their perceived failings.

Cancer will do their best to avoid situations where their self-esteem is threatened and take great care when choosing friends and lovers. Only those people who boost Cancer’s self-esteem and make them feel good about themselves need apply when it comes to joining this elite club. Membership is subject to revision on a regular basis so friends and loved ones need to give the Cancer plenty of reassurance.  Cancer people are more than capable of beating themselves up emotionally so do not need others to join in!

One area when the Cancer born person can really have self-esteem is in the relationship arena. Unfortunately many Cancer people will put up with all sorts of bad behaviour from a partner due to a desperate need to be loved and, often, a deep rooted feeling the Cancerian is unlovable and therefore needs to hold on tightly to whomever they can pair off with.

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Gemini Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Gemini Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Gemini folk have low self-esteem. Would we expect the sociable, flirtatious and quick witted Twins to have self-esteem issues? Are they really as supremely confident as they appear? Is their cheerful banter a mask to hide a crippling lack of confidence?

For many Gemini it isn’t and what you see is what you get. Many are perfectly confident in their ability to fit in with any group, shine at any social occasion and master any skill with ease. Should this not happen the resilient Twins usually pick themselves up again pretty quickly. Gemini does not usually stay floored for long. They also do their best to bolster the odds in their favour by choosing to hang out with the people who make them feel good.

There are, however, more than a few Gemini who do have low self-esteem and create a social butterfly-type personality to hide behind. Fearing rejection they never really run the risk of connecting with anybody closely enough to risk showing who they really are. Sometimes this is due to rejection at an early stage; Gemini is often a sassy precocious kid and not everyone appreciates inquisitive, intelligent and sometimes lippy children. Gemini kids can get bullied or ‘put in their place’ so often that they do begin to develop problems with self-esteem.

Gemini people may also get given a hard time by people who mistake the Gemini tendency to keep things ‘light’ for a lack of feeling on the Gemini’s part. This is unfair; Gemini folk are perfectly capable of experiencing strong emotions and frequently do. They just don’t discuss them with others that often. Because Gemini people are regarded as being devoid of feelings people can say very hurtful things to the Gemini born; things that they wouldn’t dream of saying to (as they would see it) more ‘sensitive’ souls. So once again Gemini’s self-esteem takes a battering!

Gemini people often feel misunderstood and so, when they find someone who really ‘gets’ them they can become emotionally dependent on that person. See my AstroCoaching for Gemini book for more on this. Those Gemini who do exhibit emotional dependency on friends and/or lovers would certainly be regarded as suffering from low self-esteem.

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Taurus Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Taurus Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Taurus folk have low self-esteem. We’re told that they’re diffident and shy yet have supreme confidence in their ability to rise to the top of any organisation. Are we getting mixed messages here or are Taureans supremely confident in some areas of their lives but write themselves off in others?

When it comes to forging ahead in their career most Taureans have supreme confidence in their abilities. They are very realistic about the heights they can aspire to, the challenges they face and the sacrifices that they might need to make on their way to the top. But what about their personal as opposed to their professional lives?

Taurus people have the reputation for being shy but are they really? If so, are they shy because of low self-esteem?  No; on both counts. Taurus susses someone out before committing to getting to know them, so they will often take their time before allowing others to get up close and personal. This is a great way of preserving that Taurean self-esteem. ‘Why waste your time on folk who are going to undermine you and trash your self-esteem?’ thinks the Bull. Like preceding sign Aries the Taurus-born person surrounds themselves with people who have proved themselves to be loyal and life enhancing. Like Aries the Bull can have their self-esteem undermined by a loved one, close friend or respected colleague but the Taurean usually guards against this by selecting their inner circle with the utmost care. They are also very realistic when it comes to knowing their strengths and weaknesses relative to other people’s strengths and weaknesses. They do not, as a rule, have unrealistic expectations, unrealistic views of their abilities or those of other people. They are usually supremely confident in their ability to identify their talents/strengths and those of others. This helps to guard against those unrealistic expectations that precede a crushing defeat and trashing of self-esteem.

It is unlikely that a colleague or casual acquaintance will undermine the Taurean’s self-esteem but a relationship break-up or barbed comments from a loved one can do this. At the very least the Bull will wonder how they could have made the mistake of letting such a person get close enough to inflict this level of damage.

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Aries Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Aries Suffer from Low Self-esteem?

While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; most people who know a little about Zodiac signs would expect an Aries to have very high self-esteem. Those folk who are irritated by people who appear to ooze confidence (and see the Aries-born  as boastful braggarts) might even think that Aries, along with Leo and Sagittarius, has far too much self-esteem and could do with a bit of reality re-alignment! But let’s look a little closer shall we. Is Aries appearance of being supremely self-confident genuine or is it a mirage?

In reality it’s a little of both. Aries people do have times when their confidence is at a low ebb and they are often less confident in their looks, abilities etc. than they appear. They do, however, have a smart way of dealing with threats to their self-esteem. Firstly they surround themselves with loyal people who go out of their way to make Aries folk feel good about themselves. People who undermine Aries are ejected from Aries’ circle of friends pronto. If such people cannot be ejected e.g. toxic colleagues or family members then Aries will find creative ways to avoid them where possible. They might also do a bit of undermining of the offending party as well.

Aries will also play to their strengths and will avoid situations where they are required to do something that they are not good at. In the event that that they are required to use a skill that does not come naturally they will either try to get someone else to take on the task or they will write off the task as pointless and the skill as not worth having.

Is it possible to undermine Aries’ self-esteem? Yes, if they value your opinion enough. But you can rest assured that, like fellow Mars ruled sign Scorpio, Aries will pay you back and it won’t be pretty!

Low self-esteem? Which Zodiac signs are the most likely to help you build your self-esteem ?

Low self-esteem – which Zodiac signs are the most likely to help you build your self-esteem ?

If you’re lacking in self-esteem or just lack confidence there are certain signs who are rather intimidating to be around. These include the self-confident, gung-ho, have a go at anything Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and the intellectually confident, socially adept and popular Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius).

Of the Fire signs Leo is the most gentle with those who have low self-esteem. Aries and Sagittarius just get bored with those who lack the confidence or ability to keep up and both avoid those they see as ‘needy’ like the plague! Leo who has a tendency to need to be needed may take a person with low self-esteem on as a pet project but unless the person with low self-esteem makes progress the Lion will tire of them. The only exception to this is those Leos who need to be hero-worshipped all the time but, if truth be told, not every person with low self-esteem is into making others feel great.  Sometimes they are into making others feel as insecure as they are. As the saying goes ‘misery loves company’!

When it comes to the Air signs you can forget it. They all give the needy and downhearted a wide birth. Like the fire signs they much prefer upbeat people who aren’t hard work. Libra is likely to be the most gentle but still won’t reach out and get involved.

Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn are not for those lacking in self-esteem but Taurus is a possibility. Taurus will go out of their way to build up a loved one’s self-esteem and will take great pleasure in doing so. They are the Zodiac’s masters when it comes to recognising and valuing the talents of others, so if there’s something great about you then Taurus will make sure that you know it! The Taurean may, however, get fed up if they feel that someone is making no effort to improve their self-esteem. The Bull is usually a supportive and loving soul but does expect to see people making an effort to ‘sort themselves out’ as the Taurus would see it.

Now, what about the water signs? These guys are regarded as the Zodiac’s emotional empaths, so are they likely to take on someone with low self-esteem? And, if they do, will the results be what the person with low self-esteem would wish for? Scorpio would be the most high-risk of the water signs because they do not hold back when it comes to criticising others (or themselves for that matter). They also don’t like negative people – it might be catching, so will avoid those who are feeling down unless they are in a mood when they want to see everybody suffer. This event is much rarer than Scorpio-bashers would like to believe! The only exception to Scorpio’s rule of avoiding negative people is when a partner is having a bout of low self-esteem in which case Scorpio will do their best to life their partner’s spirits.

Cancer and Pisces will both do their best to nurture and support someone with low self-esteem unless that person has hurt them badly in which case it’s pay-back time. Yes, even the saintly Piscean is capable of exacting revenge and is as effective at doing so as the Zodiac’s revengemeister, Scorpio. Of the Water signs, Pisces and Cancer are best able to empathise with folks who have low self-esteem as they are likely to have periods of suffering from it themselves. Both will probably cut someone with low self-esteem more slack than the other Zodiac signs unless that person tries to boost their self-esteem by undermining the Cancerian or the Pisces’ sense of self-esteem.
