Some people may appear brave, but everyone has their fair share of fears—big and small—that they have yet to overcome. Whether your fears keep you from consuming fast food or keep you awake at night, all the zodiac signs have something that shivers their timbers. As we get into the spooky season, here is what frightens you most based on your star sign.
With their beaded eyes, distorted eyebrows and big red round noses, they make you want to crawl under your bed and avoid gutters forever. Clowns are one of the oldest and most basic fears in the book and a fear Aries proudly possesses. You wouldn't dare come face-to-face with one of these jesters. The biggest offender from all the clowns? Ronald McDonald. Best believe you avoid McDick’s whenever possible.
You’ve never been able to handle change well. Whether you’re struggling to hold on to those little coins or finding out that Starbucks changed its soy milk supplier—all of it shakes you to your very core. Big change, small change, loose change and spare change—it's just too much for you.
You are known for your extroverted personality or rather, personalities, but both are deathly afraid of the dark. You must keep a green froggy night light on right next to your bed before falling asleep to keep safe from demons that haunt both your closet and your mind.
Irregular hole-themed patterns, bumps and odd shapes scare you down to the bone. You have trypophobia—a fear of hole-y things—and you are proud of it. Bubble wrap, honeycombs, thinking about the existence of an otherworldly being, all these things hurt you in ways you didn't even know were possible. Hole-y objects and thoughts make you uncomfortable and you will continue to avoid them for as long as possible.
Remember that scene from Twilight where Bella proclaimed her dislike for "any cold, wet thing"? Well, that sums up everything a Leo may fear. You won't come near wet towels or pluck up the courage to sit a minute too long in your wet swimsuit.
It’s 3 a.m. and your stomach is in desperate need of attention. Michelina's Fettuccine Alfredo beckons you from the freezer but you hesitate; not just because you know it will taste like cardboard. You are afraid of what's about to warm up your mouth-watering $2 meal—the microwave. You despise its loud and obnoxious humming banter. Not to mention the relentless, shrieking beeping noise that haunts you every time.
Think twice before you ask a Libra to make a decision, because they won't be able to make one. Their middle name is indecisive and it takes almost 10 minutes each day to decide which muffin to pair with their black coffee. You can, maybe, expect a miracle response in three to five business days if you're lucky and the decision to be made is usually pretty simple.
Spending too much time on the internet being exposed to strange things has scarred you for life. You've witnessed things you didn't even know existed—abnormally long toe nails, a dude making love to his car and of course a compilation of Dr. Pimple Popper’s best pops. Those toe nails especially make you uneasy and don't sit right with you. If you could, you'd cut them all with nail clippers, or perhaps a chef's knife would work better.
You have a fear of missing out, informally known as FOMO. It makes sense because you are the life of the party and if there is no party, you have no life. It doesn't matter if you have a morning shift, three assignments to finish and no food in your stomach; you will make it to every social outing possible.
Everyone has heard of a fear of heights but you have a more particular fear—climbing up ladders. You always think that something as short as a two-floor ladder would be a great “stepping” point. But even when you can’t reach the dishes on the top shelf, clambering up your counter is a better solution than getting over your fear of climbing ladders.
Their soft and silky fur is adored by many—except you. You view squirrels as the tyrants of the animal kingdom and you don't want those aggressive yet freakishly adorable creatures to come anywhere near you. They have pure aggression behind those small button eyes which has you convinced that they pose a malicious threat to your existence.
The sound of cracking a joint makes your whole body tingle in a terrible way. The minute someone starts caressing their own knuckles too aggressively, you want to run but you can never seem to hide. When you hear a person's knuckle, knee or elbow do that snap, crackle and pop, you have to resist the urge to stuff your ears full with cotton balls.
