Aries March 20 – April 19
Aries the first sign of the zodiac is one of the most passionate. Because of their deeply rooted need for passion and connection, when they experience a loss, they feel it in ways that very few can imagine. For Aries loss is not only felt on an emotional level but on a very deep spiritual level.
Aries are action takers. Their first and most natural reaction is to get busy trying to fix or manage things physically. Because grief is not something that can be fixed the Aries will fill their time and emotional void with busy work. What can I do to help? Who do I need to contact? What needs to be done right now are a few questions that the Aries will begin to ask themselves. Their innate call to action serves to bring reason and rhyme to the chaos in their minds.
Aries are the least likely to seek comfort from religious practices when grieving. Instead they need to independently make sense of their loss. Aries will delve deep into their inner beings to find peace and seek answers. Because of their love for information and knowledge Aries will find the most comfort in educating themselves about what they are experiencing during their grief journey.
The best way to support an Aries who is grieving is to offer as much information as possible without being insensitive or trying to take control. Sharing articles, ideas and information that offer information for grievers is a huge gift to the Aries.
