How To Deal With A Death In The Family Due To Coronavirus, According To Astrology getty

Death is one of those things we can never avoid. There is no one way to feel about a death in the family, or in a group of friends, other than lost, broken and hurt.

When you're mourning the loss of someone close to you, or even someone you didn't know that well, your heart and emotions know no limits to the amount of pain you feel. There's no guide on how to deal with death or grieve properly, after all.


In recent months, the novel coronavirus has taken ahold of the lives of everyone around the world, becoming a global pandemic. COVID-19 is a severe respiratory illness with symptoms like those of the flu, but much more intense. It has killed tens of thousands of people globally, and the striking numbers continue to grow.

With the number of positive cases surging, the biggest worry s keeping our elders and health-compromised individuals safe. This is why social distancing has been implemented around the world, forcing millions of people to stay at home for days and weeks on end.

If you're concerned about someone you know being at risk for contracting coronavirus, your zodiac sign and astrology can provide a guide for how you will be affected during these troubling times. 

Each zodiac sign has a unique way of working through a death in the family, and this will provide insight into their unique preparation and grieving process.


Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is very confident in their walk throughout life. No matter what they encounter, they will always put a brave face on to battle through it.

When dealing with family or friend's death, they may use their emotions to express anger, but it's because they are actually very sad. They will shed a tear or two, but they will never run away from the situation.
