1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Aries are quite confident, energetic and a bit of a daredevil, so it’s no surprise that their biggest fear is the fear of going unnoticed or being forgotten. They want to make a mark on the world, and they like to have many accomplishments and achievements under their belt. The thought that these could be forgotten one day is a fear that a lot of Aries can struggle with.

The most common insecurity of an Aries is that they sometimes feel lost but will never ask for advice from others. As mentioned, Aries are confident go-getters and want to accomplish lots of things, so if other people need advice they are happy to give it. Aries just aren’t as comfortable with asking for advice themselves. They need to find a balance and know that it’s OK to ask for help.

2. Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Taurus's are warm-hearted, loving, determined and security loving too. Although they sometimes cannot trust their own intuition and this may play hand in hand with Taurus’s most common fear: the fear of unexpected change.

As Taurus’s love stability and structure, it’s easy to see why they may fear change in their life that could disrupt things.

Their insecurities also connect with their fear too. Taurus's biggest insecurity is that they are always questioning what will come next. Because security is a huge thing for Taurus’s, they often worry about change that may be coming their way. They can sometimes worry about things that haven’t happened yet, and as they crave stability, it can be hard to accept that they don’t control the future.

Cancer’s have big hearts and are in touch with their emotions, so they can feel things more than others. Their biggest insecurity is that they can sometimes feel broken and don’t let others see it.
