When someone we love dies, it can really turn our lives upside down. Dealing with loss is hard, and people grieve and cope with death in many different ways. Based on our zodiac sign's personality traits, some people can move on quickly, some feel frustration and anger, some try to lend a helping hand to anyone who needs it during those difficult times, while others become depressed and shut down completely. Keep reading to find out how the twelve zodiac signs deal with death!
Aries is one of the bravest zodiac signs, even when it comes to dealing with the most difficult part of life, death. When someone they love dies, those born under the sign of Aries will want to talk about that person all the time and will want to come to terms with their loss as quickly as possible. They may be angry and frustrated at first, but this anger won't last for long, so even if they feel incredibly sad they will want to talk about their loss.
Taurus people are usually very strong and calm, even in the most difficult situations in life. Even when others around them are breaking down, they will try to help everyone who needs it and will be the shoulder other people cry on. Taureans can handle everything life throws their way with grace and calmness, and death is no exception.
Those born under the sign of Gemini are always deeply affected by death, whether it was a close friend, family member, or someone they haven't seen for years. Even though they will try to stay positive and will want to celebrate that person's life, Geminis can also get really moody and melancholic when coping with death and loss.
As one of the most sensitive zodiac signs out there, Cancerians will get very sad and emotional when dealing with death. They can get introverted and isolate themselves at their homes trying to avoid other people at all costs, but when they're finally ready to heal and talk about their loss, they will need a friend or family member to help them get through this dark time.
Leos are known to be straightforward and dramatic, but when it comes to dealing with death and pain, they don't like to talk about it. This reserved behavior can cause them to break down later on. And since they're also very generous individuals, even during difficult times they will use their generosity and help wherever they can.
People born under the sign of Virgo are inconsolable after the death of a loved one. When dealing with the death of someone they love, Virgos will be incredibly sad and in need of constant reassurance that everything will be fine. They won't be able to be comforted and will be overthinking everything for days to come. They may finally be able to compose themselves after a few weeks of deep depression.
Libra is another sign that takes a long time to grieve. When coping with the death of someone that was close to them, Libra can't be consoled for days. They can become quite moody and will hide away from the whole world because for them healing is a slow process and they know that they'll need time to get over the loss of a loved one.
Scorpios feel things deeply, so when dealing with the death of someone that was close to them, they will cry and grieve for a long time. They will mourn deeply, but Scorpios are known to be very strong-willed and resilient individuals that understand that death is part of life, so they are able to bounce back from tragedies sooner than the other zodiac signs.
When coping with the death of a loved one, Sagittarius-born will want to be with their friends and family and will try to put on a happy face and be as positive and optimistic as possible. That doesn't mean that these people don't have emotions and are not affected by death, it's just that they deal with loss in their own way.
When they lose someone that was close to them, Capricorns will become inconsolable and hopeless. They will be depressed and grieve for a long time, losing interest in a lot of things and pulling away from friends and family during these difficult times. This makes it hard for anyone to pull them out of the darkness before they're ready.
During times of grieving and loss, Aquarians will become emotionally distant and detached from the world around them. They will put on a happy front before others, but they will try to deal with the death of a loved one in their own way, by helping and being supportive of others. They will make arrangements, cook meals, or let their friends or family members stay with them for a while, which will help them heal quickly.
Pisceans are sensitive individuals, and when it comes to losing a loved one, they usually resort to crying and retreating into their shells, because they simply want to be left alone to heal. When they finally feel like they can go on with their lives and handle things a little better, Pisceans will go out of their shells and start talking to their friends and family about their loss.
