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 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.
