I’m sure there are many people who simply have no fear, or if they do they just stare it down and go on with their lives. There are those who have small fears they mostly ignore, but for some people, their fears don’t go away; instead, they grow stronger until they’ve become phobias.
A phobia is an irrational fear, a kind of anxiety disorder in which the phobic person has an ongoing sense of dread regarding a situation, a living creature, place, or thing. When you have a phobia, you’ll do almost anything to avoid it, and when confronted with it you’ll find yourself in total panic mode.
So, what phobias go with your zodiac sign?
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Atelophobia, the fear of not doing something right or the fear of not being good enough.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Eremophobia, the fear of loneliness.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Agoraphobia, the fear of open spaces, being in crowded public places, or fear of leaving a safe place.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Zelophobia, the fear of jealousy.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Ataxophobia, the fear of messes (untidiness and disorder).
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Decidophobia, the fear of making decisions.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Mycophobia, the fear of mushrooms.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Claustrophobia, the fear of confined spaces.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Coulrophobia, the fear of clowns.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Arachibutyrophobia, the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Geniophobia, the fear of chins.
