Everyone has their own way of dealing with sadness, and every one’s way of coping is different from the other. If you are going through a tough time in your life, where everything seems bleak, then the key to dealing with sadness might lie in your zodiac sign.
Read on to know more about how you can deal with your melancholy and sadness, according to your zodiac sign.
Here Is How You Deal With Sadness Based On Your Zodiac Sign
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Impulsive, blind with rage, and fail to get worked up about their normal habits. They become oppositional, but with less enthusiasm. Make sure that you steer clear of an Aries when they are angry because they see red when they lose it. Aries always manifests their sadness with anger. Most of the time when an Aries is upset, it is probably because they are hurt or sad.
The best way to deal with your anger is to let it channel it through something, especially physical activities. Be it kickboxing, working out, adventure sports, etc., these can help you let all that anger out of your system.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
When a Taurus feels sad, they isolate themselves and indulge in binge-eating, and also become extremely lethargic. They have a sense of “me against the world,” run short on patience and lose their temper at the drop of a hat. When they are sad, they will prefer to be by themselves, and nothing anybody says or does can change that.
The best way to deal with your sadness, Taurus is to make the most of your alone time by doing things that make your heart happy. Maybe reading a book, or a trip to the museum, or going to the theatre alone, all these things will help you deal with your sadness without putting you in a lump.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Since a Gemini is used to making people laugh and smile all the time, they find it hard to deal with sadness themselves. Moreover, they become quieter than they usually are. When a Gemini is sad, you will see them overthink, become silent, and seem to be “elsewhere.” They’re fairly intolerable to sadness and dissociate from their feelings.
A Gemini’s mind is always racing, so when the best way for them to deal with their sadness is to reflect on it and write everything down. This will help them process their feelings and face them. Instead of running away from those feelings, it is important to confront them.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
You will clearly know when Cancer is sad. They become emotional, needy, clingy, and you will find them crying for the majority of the time. Cancers are petrified of being left alone, and that is why they will always look for emotional and mental support from their close family and friends.
Cancers have powerful emotions, and that is why they experience everything more deeply than others. The best way to deal with their sadness is to pour it into something and make something out of it. They might want to start a new hobby and invest their emotions, time, and energy into that.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Leos display their stress but become excessively wound up like they’re on the brink of a nervous breakdown. They’re short-tempered and needy and are prone to turning themselves into a martyr. Leos become quite theatrical when they are sad, and build a narrative where they tend to portray themselves as the hero.
If you know Leo, then you will know that they are some of the most courageous people out there, and their ability to face their sadness head-on is truly admirable. They should find someone with whom they can talk about their problems, as this will help them the most.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
When a Virgo is sad, they have heightened compulsions, become unresponsive in conversations, and become blunt and oppositional. Due to their obsessive and compulsive personality, they find it tough to deal with sadness. They start overthinking and over-analyzing every minor thing.
The best way a Virgo can deal with their sadness is to stop their over-introspection for a moment and see their sadness for what it is. Their practical nature will always help them to deal with their sadness and come out of it as a stronger person.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22):
When Libra is sad, they have feelings of instability and moodiness, with a reduced urge to socialize. They often feel hopeless, but try to stay happy and composed. They stop doing the things that used to make them happy and lose all their interest in them. Libra feels utterly hopeless when they are sad or depressed.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Scorpios become hostile, isolated, and have violent mood swings. They exhibit intense melancholy with paranoia, and their own thoughts become scary to them. Additionally, they can also manipulate people to get what they want and feel better, even though this ends up making them feel worse.
Scorpios are empathetic people, and it is best for them to fall back on their empathy to feel better. One of the best things they can do is to spend time with animals, to get in touch with their emotional side. They can also spend time with their loved ones. This will help them heal from whatever is hurting them.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Sagittarius feel lethargic and sometimes use substances to escape. They become more serious and tense, less tolerant, and are plagued with feelings of worry when thinking about the future. This ends up making them feel lost and worse.
Their ambitious nature can help them deal with sadness, but only after they have faced their feelings and actively worked on them. They can involve themselves in things like yoga, meditation, journaling, traveling, etc.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
When a Capricorn feels sad, they become unmotivated, hopeless, and start to overthink. They seem hyper-vigilant, forcing themselves to “go through the motions,” but nothing really impresses them. They lose inspiration and start to give in to their sadness and the slump that comes with it.
No matter how difficult it feels, a Capricorn should try to move on from their sadness by diving into what makes them happy and passionate. Another thing that might help them is reconnecting with their childhood. This reconnection will help them feel that childlike happiness again.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Aquarius hate sadness, and that is why they become uneasy and silent. They isolate themselves and detach, even though they attempt to appear happy. They retreat inside themselves and feel nothing short of numb. On the surface, it might seem like they are fine, but on the inside, they are breaking down.
Contrary to what people think about them, Aquarius are very emotional people; it’s just that they need to get in touch with that emotional side of theirs. They just need to stop themselves from shutting off their emotions, and they will be fine.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Sadness leads a Pisces to indulge in obsessive thinking and remember every bad event that’s happened to them. They become anxious, isolated, and tend to “feel everything.” This makes them inconsolable and makes them feel guilty. Pisces constantly think that everything is their fault, including their sadness.
The best way for a Pisces to deal with their sadness is by putting an end to their overthinking. They should look to lose themselves in something beautiful and something that makes them happy.
