How To Comfort Others

When someone we care about is upset, our first instinct is to comfort them. We want to sympathize with them in their sadness. However, comforting can be tricky. What works for you may not work for them.

One way to figure out how to comfort someone is by looking at their personality. And since our zodiac signs have an influence on our personalities, we can turn to them to find out the best way to help others in their time of need.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): An Aries is often moody and short-tempered. The best thing you can do for them is to let them talk to you and rant to you. Allow them to let off steam until they calm down. Don't try to change the subject until they do.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Taurus may be loyal, but they're also very sensitive. So when they're talking about a problem, don't let it be about you. Let it be about them, and be physically affectionate to let them know that you care.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Gemini has a mischievous streak, but when it comes to problems they react instantly and nervously. Reassure them that no matter what, they're strong and can handle any problem.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cancer is self-pitying and oversensitive. So when they're upset, they'll be beating themselves up. The best thing you can do is to be super affectionate, either physically or verbally.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Leo may be confident, but when it comes to problems they can be overly dramatic. Let them talk as much as they want, even agree with a few of his points, until they calm down.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Unlike the other signs, a Virgo thinks about their problem from an analytical standpoint first. Sometimes, they might not even seek you out, so the best thing to do is allow them the silence before they're comfortable enough to talk to you.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Due to a Libra's idealistic nature, they often don't understand what's going on when things don't go the way they pictured it. Thus, they become doubtful of their own abilities, so when this happens the best thing to do is calm them down by talking about why they feel the way they do. Help them figure out what's wrong and come up with a solution.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Scorpio prefers controlling a situation, so when things don't go their way they'll figure out a way to fix it on their own. Unlike Libras , they don't want you to tell them to calm down. Instead, sympathize with them and let them know that they aren't alone.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): A Sagittarian's greatest weakness is being unemotional, so they're tricky to comfort. The best thing you can do is help them take their mind off the problem, but don't joke about it either.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): A Capricorn is self-sufficient, so it may seem like they don't need your help when they have a problem. But they do, and the way to do that is to listen and give them advice if they ask. Make sure that they know that you're there for them.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Aquarius is stubborn and rebellious, so reassure them that their issues are valid. Don't let them feel alone.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): When a Pisces is upset, they feel it full-force. Give them all your attention. If you know one thing that will make them feel better, enforce it.
