We all have our good days and our bad. But when someone experiencing symptoms of emotional instability, those ups and downs can get pretty extreme. It's nothing to be ashamed about but it is important to recognize it if this happens to you. Although it's far from being actual science, astrology can give you some insight into which zodiac signs are likely to have better control over their emotions, and those most likely to be emotionally unstable.
"When it comes to emotions, some of us are even-keeled while others [can be] emotional rollercoasters," astrologer Cindy Mckean tells Bustle. "Sometimes just a little understanding of how you can expect to be can go far."
If you happen to be an Earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), you're known for being the most stable ones among the entire zodiac. That's because Earth elements are grounded. "They have their feet securely planted on [the ground] and are more resilient to the storms that life can sometimes bring," Mckean says.
"Fixed" energy signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) also tend to be emotionally stable since their tendency is to keep things the way they are. According to Mckean, they build their lives around a "core ideal" and make decisions that keep their foundations solid and long lasting.
Then there are those zodiac signs who get easily caught up in the ups and downs of life. And while plenty of people under these signs can achieve emotional harmony, to gain further insight yourself, these are the most emotionally unstable signs, according to an astrologer.
