Every one of us lives with their own fears. Some fear losing a loved one, others fear the unknown or the dark or heights.
Among the most widespread fears are those that have something to do with water, fire, insects, reptiles, mice. The subjects of the future and death are also among the ones that inspire insecurity, confusion and turmoil within us.
And while it's much easier for women to confess their worst fears, that is not the case for men. According to the norms that have embedded themselves in our society, members of the stronger sex need to be brave, bold and never show their weaknesses. But this does not at all mean that men don't have their own fears.
Rest assured, even the most muscular macho conceals trepidations which are oftentimes determined by his zodiac sign. To learn about the hidden distresses of the male half of each sign, read on below, where all masks are off.

Taureans seem brave, confident and sometimes even uninterested in others' opinions of them. This is in fact simply an illusion because deep inside they are vulnerable and timid. But they prefer to keep this side of theirs out of sight because they're afraid of being hurt.
Male Gemini fear nothing more than changes. They like to live by rules that they've established, while routine is not unpleasant for them. In fact, they feel a quiet calm when they know exactly how their day is going to be like. But when they're forced to get out of their comfort zone the situation changes and they turn into a bundle of nerves.
Cancer men's deepest fear has to do with money. Every financial instability they experience makes them worried sick. And even if everything looks all right, they're afraid that their peace of mind won't last long and that something could happen at any moment that would bankrupt them.
The male Leo lives for the compliments and praise of representatives of the fairer sex. He's used to always having many admirers around him, ready to drop to their knees at the snap of his fingers. But Leo's greatest fear also has to do with the ladies - that a woman could reject him or doubt his manliness.
True to their zodiac sign, male Virgos love to analyze every situation, to plan and keep things under control.

Libra men astound others with their fears. In fateful situations where everyone else reacts emotionally, they manage to maintain a heroic self-control. At the same time, they'll often get frightened of something insignificantly small that gets in their way.

Capricorn men have a number of fears, the majority of these being completely unsubstantiated and the product of nothing but their rich imagination.

One of the greatest apprehensions for men of the sign of Aquarius is the thought that one day they're going to have to become parents.
