What does it mean to be truly fearless?
Is it those impulsive people who will try anything on the spur of the moment? Or is it making the big life decisions that are right for you even when it means risking everything?
Fearlessness and courage mean different things to everyone. Your Zodiac sign might be able to reveal your approach to risk.
Aries, Leo, and Scorpio tend to be the most fearless zodiac signs, both on a day-to-day basis and when it comes to the big picture of their lives.
Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer could be classified as the least fearless because they tend to weigh their options and hedge their bets.
Let’s take a look at the fearlessness traits of all the Zodiac signs, starting with the most fearless.
Aries is probably the most fearless of all the signs, in fact, they might even get off on taking risks. They are determined to win big in life, and they know that also means risking big.
But Aries have the right mindset to deal with the failures that often accompany fearlessness. They see everything as a learning opportunity.
Their relentlessness means that they recover quickly and come back fighting. You can’t keep Aries down for long.
Leo’s consummate confidence means that they aren’t afraid to take risks. This extends to day-to-day things like doing that bungee jump, and life decisions, such as investing their life savings in their own business.
Leo trusts that the universe is on their side and that everything will work out in the end. They also understand that downs can just be bumps on the road on the way to the top.
This allows Leo to remain optimistic, courageous, and fearless no matter how many times life knocks them back. Besides, it is surprising how far you can get based on sheer guts!
Scorpio has a lot of fear within them. They tend to be afraid of being hurt and being exposed for the emotional individuals that they are.
But Scorpio is courageous because of those things rather than despite them. When everything in life represents a risk, you learn to face them head-on. And Scorpio has learned.
A highly intelligent sign, Scorpio also knows how to weigh risks better than most, so they rarely throw themselves into anything that is doomed to fail. Their record of success gives them more confidence to take more risks.
Aquarius is another consummately confident sign. They believe that they are smarter than everyone else and can see the tricks in the game that everyone else is missing. This gives them an edge when it comes to risk-taking.
Highly independent, Aquarius also cultivates a nonchalance towards things in life such as wealth and stability. Since it doesn’t matter too much to them, they are willing to take the risk.
Aquarius’ ability to think about things pragmatically and analytically also helps them. They never let emotions like panic cloud their judgment.
Virgo is a sign very similar to Scorpio in that they are very insecure, but this has taught them to become comfortable with fear, so they are more comfortable facing their fears when necessary.
Virgo will be nervous to speak to someone new or give a speech, even if it is in front of people that they know. But ask them to drop everything, move to the other side of the world and start from scratch, and they will do it without fear of failure.
Virgo is also determined that no one else sees just how vulnerable they are. So, they might do some risky things on the day-to-day just to maintain their image.
Rather than being fearless, Gemini lacks inhibitions. This is why they will talk to anyone and do anything. They don’t fear what other people think, or the consequences.
Gemini also often makes risky decisions about the future, but not on purpose. More than any other sign, Gemini lives in the present and finds it difficult to imagine the future. So, they might choose things that represent a risk to their future self without even realizing it.
But Gemini does fear becoming irrelevant. They can fear that they will be abandoned if they don’t manage to maintain their stamina and mystique.
Sagittarius is perhaps better described as reckless than fearless. They get off on the adrenalin that comes with risks such as jumping out of an airplane or approaching that person who is way out of the league.
They are always planning huge adventures that involve surviving on their own, with just their wit and charisma to get them through.
But when it comes to some things in life, Sagittarius is highly risk-averse. Classic commitment-phobes, this stems from Sagittarius’ fear of making long-term decisions and being stuck with them.
Taurus is good at taking calculated risks. They know how to calculate risk and reward and determine whether a risk is worth taking. So, when they do take one, it usually pays off.
However, they do worry about what other people think. Reputation and appearances matter a lot to Taurus. They will often avoid things that could leave them feeling embarrassed.
Taurus also works really hard for the things that they have, and therefore risks losing what they have built up. For this reason, that can be very possessive.
When it comes to meeting new people and driving into their lives, Pisces is fearless. They aren’t afraid to talk to anyone about anything.
But they are less confident in other areas of their lives. This talented and creative sign often underestimates their own intelligence and talent.
They generally won’t want to take on any risks by themselves. If they have a partner in crime, they can be convinced to jump, but they struggle to do it alone.
Libra is another sign that underestimates themselves. Intelligent and interesting, they still tend to defer to others when it comes to big decisions.
They also like to talk things through and gather opinions before making their own. This lets them way the pros and the cons, but can also result in overthinking.
Libra can be impulsive, this usually comes along with social pressure to perform and gain acceptance from the group.
Capricorn doesn’t take risks. They weigh all the minute details, assess the pros and cons, and choose the best decision.
This applies to every element of their lives from what they eat for breakfast to what career path they are going to commit to for the next 10 years.
That doesn’t mean that Capricorn never does anything that other people would consider risky. It just isn’t risky for them as their attention to detail and planning means that the outcome is secure.
Cancer has the weight of the world on their shoulders. They are very invested in and aware of the community of people that they have gathered around themselves. They consider every decision with all of the people that they care about in mind.
“I can’t go on a last-minute holiday as a sibling is also away and there will be no one to help mum or dad if something happens. I can’t put myself at risk because my loved ones need me.”
A highly emotional sign, they often let fear of what might happen, no matter how unlikely, stop them from doing anything too risky.
Are you Fearless?
Are you from one of the fearless signs or are you more likely to weigh your options and stick to the side of caution?
Being a good risk taker is all about being able to balance the real risk posed against the potential reward.
Most people are actually really bad at this. It is human nature to fear losing what we already have, even when the risks are small. So, often, we won’t risk something that we have but we don’t even want in order to gain our heart’s desire.
