Here’s how to deal with sadness based on your zodiac sign
1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th):
Impulsive, blind with anger, and not upset about their normal habits. They become oppositional, but with less enthusiasm.

2nd Taurus (April 20th – May 20th):
When a Taurus feels sad, they isolate themselves and indulge in binge drinking, and also become extremely lethargic.

The best way to deal with your sadness, Taurus, is to make the most of your time alone by doing things that make your heart happy. Maybe reading a book, or a trip to the museum, or going to the theater by yourself, all of these things will help you deal with your sadness without bothering you.
3. Twins (May 21 – June 20):
Since a twin sister is used to making people laugh and smile, they have a hard time coping with sadness on their own. They also become calmer than they usually are. When a twin sister is sad, you will see her rethink, become silent, and seem “elsewhere”. They are quite unbearable to sadness and distance themselves from its feelings.
A twin sister’s mind is always racing, so if the best way for her to deal with her sadness is to think about it and write it all down. This will help them process their feelings and face them. Instead of running away from these feelings, it is important to face them.

10. Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th):
When a Capricorn is sad, they become unmotivated, hopeless, and begin to rethink. They appear to be hyper-monitored, forcing themselves to “get moving,” but nothing really impresses them. They lose their inspiration and begin to indulge in their sadness and the lull that comes with it.
No matter how difficult it feels, a Capricorn should try to get out of their sadness by immersing themselves in what makes them happy and passionate. Another thing that could help is reconnecting with your childhood. This reconnection will help you feel childlike happiness again.
11. Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th):
Aquarius hates sadness, and that is why they become restless and silent. They isolate and detach themselves even as they try to appear happy. You withdraw into yourself and feel nothing but numbness. On the surface they may seem fine, but on the inside they collapse.
Contrary to what people think of them, Aquarius are very emotional people; it’s just that they need to get in touch with their emotional side. All you have to do is keep yourself from turning off your emotions and you’ll be fine.
