Being sensitive isn’t necessarily a negative trait, and many of the signs can’t help but be ruled by their strong and passionate emotions. While the water signs are often considered emotional and intuitive, that doesn’t mean they’re the most sensitive. Fire signs are often creative, inspired and deeply passionate, expressing themselves loudly and proudly. These two incredibly sensitive signs can be empathetic, emotional and unfortunately overstimulated frequently.
This isn’t to say the earth and air signs can’t also be emotional and sensitive, but they are generally more led by their intellectual and mental processes over their emotions and hearts. However, you may be in for a few surprises if you think all the air and earth signs are at the bottom of this list. Emotion can be demonstrated and felt in a million ways, and these two types of signs are best at breaking through expectations.Read More »
Knowing how your sign affects your nature and emotionality can give you the control and knowledge to be more prepared in the face of future intense feelings. Where does your zodiac sign fall on the list?
Cancers are the easiest water signs to upset and disturb. Highly-emotional and empathetic, Cancers can’t help but to internalize their emotions and the emotions of those around them. They can’t stand being attacked and want to stay safe in their protective bubble from the pressure and negative energies of the outside world.
Cancers are gentle, emotional people who can become easily distressed and agitated.
Pisces is a very close second to Cancer and can just as easily become disturbed and begin crying.
