Some signs prefer to live the grief internally, others externalize it and are able to share it with others. Some are emotional, others rational. Find out how each Zodiac sign copes with loss.
Aries is one of the most optimistic signs of the Zodiac but also has high levels of anxiety. In their way of seeing life, death is not contemplated, and when the loss of a loved one comes, this sign finds it difficult to react. The way Aries reacts when they lose someone can lead to anxiety if they don't manage to calm down.
Aries is a very impulsive sign, not very rational, and reacts at every moment according to its instincts. That is why it's often difficult for them to face those unexpected blows of life. However, it's also a very strong sign, capable of overcoming all adversities. If they put this strength at the service of rationality, Aries will find it easier to accept loss as just another facet of life.
As one of the most sensitive signs of the Zodiac, Taurus is one of the signs that worst bears absence and separation. The stars give people of this sign a very special sensitivity in which physical contact and presence play a determining role, and that is why when they love someone they need to feel them close. For this reason, when faced with the loss of a loved one, Taurus easily sinks into despair. But although it takes a long time to come to terms with the death of a loved one, Taurus shares that pain with friends and family, and that helps to ease their grief. Taurus needs to know that suffering from the loss of someone is not a bad thing, but they have to learn to accept death and live with the absence.
Gemini is an air sign, very rational, and they always try to reject emotions. The arrival of such a transcendental moment generates in people of this sign an instinctive rejection that makes them react in a cheerful and optimistic way. They try to prove to themselves that life goes on, and that joy is the best medicine.
However, it's also one of the signs that has more difficulties to process death in a mature way and that, in the long run, makes them not heal their wounds well. It's very common for a Gemini to end up developing traumas due to the loss of a loved one. Loss always requires time and pause, and pause is at odds with Gemini's momentum. However, death is one of the greatest teachings for a Gemini.
Cancer is a water sign, very emotional, who tends to live life experiences with great intensity. One of the characteristics of the crab is that it's very susceptible and any traumatic event dents its personality for a long time. The mourning process of Cancer after the loss of a loved one usually lasts a long time.
At the same time, they're very prone to human relationships and will need a lot of support to overcome the moment: they need to be surrounded by friends and family. They are also the sign of memories, and reliving past times will help them to rationalize the absence. In people of this sign, the loss of a loved one affects their security, and losing that person so close to Cancer feels that their whole world falls apart.
Leo's apparent strength hides a tender heart unprepared for separations. When life strikes with the death of a loved one, lions often suffer in a heartbreaking way, and the difficulty in coping with the absence shows in wounds that don't heal until after a long time.
Leo is a fire sign that is ruled by impulse, when faced with the loss of a loved one, instead of trying to rationalize and face it in a mature way, they try to look for new sensations and activities that will make them forget. This is an escape valve that can help the lion become stronger, but sooner or later they will have to learn to come to terms with the absence.
Virgo is an earth sign that tries to rationalize all life experiences, no matter how hard they may be. This, combined with its methodical and disciplined character, makes Virgo one of the hardest and coldest signs of the Zodiac, and they're also like that in the face of death: Virgo's way of dealing with a loss is rational, cold and distant.
When faced with the loss of a loved one, Virgo shows strength and tries to comfort others. They take responsibility for the hardest moments, take care of everything that has to do with the funeral, and the next day try to continue with their life routine. But inside, Virgo is more fragile than they think, and there comes a time when they break down. Virgo's challenge is to share their grief with others and accept it as something natural.
The natives of the sign of Libra are sensitive people prone to depression. Therefore, in the face of loss, Libra develops a deep sadness that can lead to emotional despondency if they're not able to balance their inner self with some optimism. Fortunately, they are a very sociable sign and this can help them cope with the loss of a loved one.
As an air sign, a Libra is a very intelligent person with many tools to rationalize emotional aspects. This helps them overcome the worst moments very naturally and to change despair for optimism. Libra's way to overcome the loss of someone, by death or separation, is to rescue the good moments and live with them in a rational way.
Scorpio possesses a mental fortitude like few others and, as one of the strongest signs of the Zodiac, Scorpio is one of the most prepared for death. How does Scorpio cope with loss? Isolation is their method of defense against the hardest moments, as people of this sign are reluctant to show their feelings.
As a water sign, emotions predominate in Scorpio and at certain times sadness can take its toll on their personality. But the Scorpio sign is ruled by Pluto, the planet that transforms darkness into light. Through their choices in life, Scorpios have learned to live with renunciation, and after a short trance of pain and isolation, they will set their regeneration system in motion.
Sagittarius is the most optimistic sign of the Zodiac and that is why the arrival of such a hard moment as the loss of a loved one is usually a shock for them. However, people born under the sign of Sagittarius are ruled by the planet Jupiter, representative of abstract thoughts and expansion.
That is why when faced with absence or loss, Sagittarius reacts by thinking of the good times spent with the person. It rationalizes it as an opportunity, not as a loss. And it tends to lose itself in philosophical reflections on existence, drawing positive conclusions. However, the planet Jupiter can also amplify negative things. Sagittarius has to avoid falling into depression by doing activities and keeping the mind occupied.
Their solitary aspect and their methodical, hard-working and disciplined character show others a side that doesn't correspond to them. Capricorn is a very sensitive sign who suffers a lot at the loss of a loved one. People ruled by Saturn need time to process grief and overcome the death of a loved one, but they try to hide their pain.
Fortunately, Capricorn is a person with great mental and physical strength, and they're prepared to go through that long time of grief. They always try to overcome bad moments by taking refuge in what they like the most, work. People born under the sign of the goat try to overcome pain individually. But if they try to socialize their suffering, they will feel much more relieved.
Death generates many existential doubts to Aquarius, who begins to ask questions before such an unusual event. However, in the answers, they let the positive energy flow. They have an independent and rational personality in which death and loss are part of life itself.
Aquarius is one of the most mature signs when facing the loss of a loved one. They prefer to digest the rough patch alone and elevate the experience to a rational life lesson from which to draw conclusions to turn it into a learning experience. Surrounding themselves with friends and relatives will help Aquarius feel supported during the process of pain, but an excessive presence makes them feel invaded and alters their natural process of mourning.
Among the signs that worst bear the loss and death is Pisces, a sign of extreme sensitivity to which a blow of these characteristics can knock them down very easily. Faced with the loss of a loved one, Pisces sinks into a sad and depressive state that can only be overcome by clinging to their mystical side.
Pisces is a water sign ruled by emotions, and its ruling planet, Neptune, conveys a tendency to negative excesses. That makes Pisces try to overcome pain through alcohol, drugs and other harmful temptations. Pisces is the sign that needs the most support at the time of loss. Feeling supported by others is essential to overcome sadness and depression.
