Sagittarius November 22- December 21
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac and is the most independent and confident. Sagittarius are also very deeply rooted in their spiritual beliefs. Their beliefs make them feel as if they know the answers to life’s questions. Trust is very important to the Sagittarius. The more information and insight they have the more confidently they are able to maneuver through life’s highs and lows.
Sagittarius are the researchers and seek to do things by rules and the book. Unfortunately; grief does not play by the rules nor is there a book that can tell the Sagittarius how to experience grief. Because of this the Sagittarius feels the least confident and capable when they are grieving.
Grief challenges the Sagittarius belief. It forces them to realize that they can’t possibly know all of the answers and dispels the myth that life is fair if you do the right thing. Sagittarius interpret their lack of understanding and inability to gain the blueprint for “feeling better” or “making things right” as personal failure. This makes them prone to much guilt and depression.
The best way to support a Sagittarius who is grieving is to give them as much information as you can without overwhelming them. Articles, excepts and hard statistical data are important and will give the Sagittarius comfort. Avoid asking open ended questions that the Sagittarius can’t answer but encourage them to challenge their perspective own their own.
