Zodiac, Self

Everyone is an emotional healer in their own way. Some of us are more intuitively empathetic than others (thanks to the sensitive, compassionate natures), while others are more of the “shake it off and start kicking ass again” types.

The kind of empathetic healer you are really depending on your zodiac sign. You can’t expect someone whose horoscope describes them as rough around the edges and not as tolerant of other people’s crap to be all touchy-feely when making their friends feel better, right?

And the same could be said for the opposite.

For myself, in particular, I tend to treat others the way I treat myself when I feel bad, which is probably not as gentle and nice as some people want (I’m terrible at comforting others), but I do try my best — you gotta give me that much. But take my sister, for example. She’s a Pisces, which means that being an empathetic healer comes naturally to her.

She somehow always knows what to say when someone needs comforting, but more than that, she’s able to tailor her advice and healing techniques depending on the friend or family member.

Like when she’s trying to make me feel better, she knows that I prefer someone just telling me that I’m stronger than I think and that I can do it all. But when she’s comforting her best friend, she knows that she needs someone to tell her that it’s okay to be sad. Not my cup of tea, but you get the point.

And honestly, I don’t know how she does it, but it definitely helps that she’s a great listener and friend (like all people born under Pisces). But this star sign isn’t the only one that astrology describes as an empathetic healer.

In fact, there are a good handful of zodiac signs that are considered sympathetic and should really be the first people you go to when you need a shoulder to cry on or a hand to hold.

There’s just something about their patient, caregiving natures that not only makes them loved by all but also makes them people to look up to. Heck, if I could be more like these empathetic signs, I would definitely try. But don’t just take my word for it.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Taurus Compassionate Zodiac Signs Empathetic Healers

Taurus is the type of person who truly knows what she’s talking about when she says, “I get what you’re going through.” She’s one of the best signs to go to when you need a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk to because she’s experienced it all.

Whether you want someone to heal your broken heart or boost your confidence, Taurus is your girl. What makes her so empathetic — besides the way she’s able to relate to pretty much every problem you come to her with — is her sensitivity.

She knows how she would want to be treated in the same situation, so she tries to keep her language gentle and understanding. This sensitive, empathetic nature makes her one of the best friends you’ll ever need.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer Compassionate Zodiac Signs Empathetic Healers

Cancer knows the importance of expressing your emotions freely, which is why she always try to help those who need comforting because she knows that talking about what’s on your mind usually helps.

She also knows that some conversations are harder than others to have, so she doesn’t try to pressure you into talking about anything that makes you uncomfortable.

Cancer is considered an empathetic healer because her presence alone is enough to make you feel better. Her calm demeanor silences any inner turmoil you might be dealing with.

Her ability to just sit and listen when her loved ones need to vent makes anyone feel like what they have to say matters. Cancer tries to bring compassion to all her relationships, no matter what the situation calls for.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Libra Compassionate Zodiac Signs Empathetic Healers

Libra always goes out of her way to help her friends and family, so it should come as no surprise that she would be one of the most compassionate and sympathetic signs.

It’s not so much that she lives to make others happy, but more so that Libra is happiest when the people she loves are happy. And when someone needs a friend to rely on, Libra is there no matter what.

One of Libra’s best traits is her gentle nature. She knows how to approach any kind of problem and, even if she can’t solve it, she always knows how to cheer you up.

She’s the type of person who is better at helping others with their problems (and not so much her own), but she truly does find happiness when being there for the people she loves; she does it all with empathy.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Pisces Compassionate Zodiac Signs Empathetic Healers

Pisces is one of the best — if not the best of the best — at being an empathetic healer. Not only does she know how to make you feel better with some words of wisdom and a plan of action (so you don’t get in the same situation a week from now), but she is incredibly intuitive, which is not a trait every healer has.

Pisces’ intuitiveness means that she tends to know what’s wrong with you before YOU do – or before you want to talk about it. How? By detecting subtle behavioral changes (even if you try to hide it). She uses her wise, compassionate nature to help you get to the root of the problem and find a solution. As someone who deals with a lot of feelings daily, she knows that holding onto negativity only leads to more problems.
