4 Zodiacs Who Struggle With Imposter Syndrome

Start exploring

Cancer always feels inadequate, even when they win accolades and are recognized by others. They worry that everyone will be disappointed when they discover they're a fraud.


They are the textbook example of imposter syndrome. We can't reassure Cancer—they have to figure it out themselves.

Leo may surprise. However, Leos make one major mistake. Leos feel like failures without regular praise. Their self-confidence is weak.


Pauses in praise make people feel like imposters, not praise itself. They'll wonder if everyone's altering their thoughts and if they'll be informed they're not good enough.

Hard-working Virgos are known. They know they work hard. When they feel like "slacking," imposter syndrome sets in. 


They may take a long break at work and worry that everyone will discover they're the worst employee. They work hard because of that. They cannot be imposters if they never quit.

Like Virgo, Capricorns work hard and worry that laziness would make them look like impostors.


Even when they work hard and receive praise, they alternate between feeling like they deserve it and worried that they don't. It's a tightrope walk that typically causes greater tension.
