When Stars Cry Out

How different zodiac signs grieve

By MWB Desk

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

This hot-headed sign is trouble when they’re grieving. They can’t seem to hold in their frustration and anger when they lose something. They will lash out at those even though it’s not their fault. A combination of centering exercises and a physical outlet for their anger eg kickboxing classes should help them channel these feelings.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Normally not the best at opening up, this sign tries to gain the support of their loved ones in difficult times. They need emotional assurance that only their close ones can provide to them. Hugs and cuddles are always a necessity during this time.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

Even though they are the biggest socializers, Geminis tend to isolate themselves when they are experiencing extreme grief. They will even pull away from those who are the nearest to them because all they want is alone time. While it is important to give them space, this star sign also occasionally needs a jolt to pull themselves out of the dark place.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

This is a highly sensitive sign who will turn to blame themselves for all that went wrong. They can quickly dive into self-guilt that might even take a dangerous turn. Their guilt might unintentionally drive them to hurt themselves. Do check up on your Cancer friends from time to time if you haven’t heard from them.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Leos understand the importance of expressing their emotions or crying their heart out because they need to release the built-up emotions of extreme grief and sadness. All they need is someone to vent to.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Instead of being in a really grim state, they try to understand why and how they lost the thing or the person. They will try to rationalize the situation because Virgos don’t like to act according to emotions, but logic. As pragmatic as this approach is, sometimes a therapist can help the healing process.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

They are the sign of justice and so, they will try their best to warn others of the same situation that they have faced. They will try fixing the problem instead of taking their time to process it. This is a sign that could really benefit from therapy.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Scorpios will try each trick in the book to avoid feeling sad because of their loss. They will make lame jokes and laugh at others to shield themselves from the utmost pain they are feeling emotionally.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

It’s the Eat, Pray, Love route for this sign. They use wanderlust to process their pain. You will often see a Sagittarius taking off on a trip just after they have faced a tragedy. They try to forget about their loss by indulging in travel and adventure.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Since work is a big priority in their lives, Capricorns tend to keep themselves busy in their work so that they don’t have to think or focus on the sad situation. They don’t allow themselves to grieve because they don’t want to waste their time.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

They will direct themselves towards an unhealthy lifestyle that includes being extremely lazy, not taking care of their body, excessive smoking, or drinking and more. They cope very badly with situations because they don’t want to face the reality of the situation.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

All they want is to curl up in their blanket, have ice cream and cry away their sadness. Pisceans lose their positive energy moping on the bed, crying quietly. They just wish for the pain to go away quickly so that they can start afresh in their life.
