Addictions are something we all deal with and every addiction is a symptom of a larger problem. What everyone seeks is a connection, approval or inner peace, every zodiac sign comes with its own set of certain problems. The addictions listed in this article shows symptoms of those problems in sun sign.
Addictions of zodiac signs
The addictions can be tied to our personality traits as it’s not unlikely that astrology and our horoscopes play a role. As it comes to what each zodiac sign is addicted to, one can count on the stars to reveal how this influences the types of addictions suspected.
Addictions are destructive to our health, our sense of self and our lives. It’s hard to have a control while dealing with an addiction, even when you feel like quitting at any time or that it’s really no big deal. Any type of addiction is difficult to overcome and can take a fierce determination to end the power that it has over someone.
More on zodiac sign
ARIES (March 21st – April 19)
Aries is most frustrated in life when it doesn’t go fast enough. They’re the babies of the zodiac, the youngest sign. Just like toddlers, their personalities are a confusing mix of over-confidence and neediness.
Aries are addicted to risk-taking which makes sense because of the release of dopamine, the brain’s feel-good chemical. It’s a fact that most risk-takers have fewer dopamine-inhibiting receptors. The risky activities don’t always have to be dangerous, just living life on the edge can be risky enough to get Aries the high they crave.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus which endows them with a great deal of patience (they can come out to be lazy at times) in all the zodiac sign. They as well appreciate all the things sensory such as touch, taste, and smell. They tend to be addicted to minor thrills that involve indulging in their senses. They love all kind of food, massages, bedding, luxury candles, flowers, and amazing music. It is more likely to be addicted to going to the spa and having a “me day” than jumping out of a plane or eating too much.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini’s tend to be addicted to social media even if they say they’re rarely on it. They love to give their comment, opinion and generally communicate with people. They want to avoid their feelings or the present moment, the most characteristic way for them to do so is through some form of compulsive communication.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is a zodiac sign connected with the mother and the home. They are an extremely moody sign and like any water sign, when they are in grief, they will retreat from the outside world. They are also addicted to people who aren’t good for them. They’d rather be with someone who is emotionally broken and fix them than be alone. Cancers thrive in a relationship, even if their partner isn’t.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are addicted to attention. Anywhere Leo goes they have no potential for attention for them and watched while they created some kind of drama to put the focus back on them. It’s a truly remarkable quality. Every addiction is a symptom of a larger issue, the prime thing Leo truly seeks is to be in the spotlight.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos are addicted to always be the smartest person in the room. Knowledge is power for them and that power is enthralling for a Virgo. Luckily, they usually learn quickly and are able to retain information extremely well.
They also like to show off how much they know and their skills, so it’s not unlikely that they might be at a trivia contest or a storytelling competition. Everything a Virgo do they tries to do it well which is why their laser-focus and attention to detail works in their favor.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is the sign which stands for fairness and equality. But this zodiac sign is symbolized by the scales of justice as they’re not very balanced people. The problem for a Libra is twin-fold. Libras have an addiction to their phones, which they have personalized. When they’re feeling social, they may check their social media, surf the internet or text their friends. In case they are feeling awkward or want to avoid confrontation, they can focus their attention on their phone and still maintain their cool aura.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are very passionate lovers. They love to explore all of their sides and are always up for experimenting. They would benefit from really diving into the negative beliefs that fuel their fears with the help of a very skilled counselor or therapist. Turning their fears into a wish list is especially helpful in uncovering these beliefs.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is mainly addicted to changes and new experiences. If they’re in one place for a long time, they’ll get agitated. They mainly need constant motivation to meet new people and explore new things. They have an unflinching optimism in their belief in themselves, making them quick to take a gamble on anything from a game of poker to a drunken drive down the freeway. Gambling and drinking also appeal to a Sagittarius because of their very sociable natures.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn has a high addiction to work and comes out to be workaholic. They tend to work too hard, far too long, and skip their vacations. This addiction can be very damaging especially when a Capricorn refuses to slow down and take care of them.
Most Capricorns benefit greatly by relieving some of the pressure they put on themselves by shifting their focus from the outside world to the world within themselves. This zodiac sign separates the values of society from the values of their higher selves.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarians is addicted to having the latest technology. They’ll work hard for days to get a new iPhone or a virtual reality system. They love to be on the cutting edge as new technology inspires their own creativity and helps them with their own innovations and inventions.
The reason Aquarians tend to intellectualize their emotions is they feel so acutely tuned into humankind that they lose their connection to themselves as human beings. They forget that they are individuals that they must give themselves the same compassion they offer to others.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces has many addictions to them and it depends on their mood what they’re going to indulge in. They might turn to junk food, watch way too many shows on Netflix, or have a little too much wine for dinner. They benefit most by putting down the bottle entirely, abstaining from drugs and alcohol while working to create better boundaries and choosing more carefully who they surround themselves with.
Concluding the above, every zodiac sign has at least one little vice as let’s face it, no one is perfect. Each sun sign has their own personal addiction and some struggle to control their spending and go on too many splurges at the mall, whereas others just can’t put their phones down and detox from social media.
