Virgo August 23- September 22
Crystal- Red Jasper
Virgo is the sixth and most reserved sign of the zodiac. Virgos are extremely protective of their emotions and have a hard time forming genuine connections. Because they shield their hearts and emotions so closely when they do lose someone or something that they love they take the loss extremely personal. Grief causes the normally confident Virgo to question themselves and often struggle with unnecessary guilt even if they could have never prevented it from occurring. They also will question whether they were the best (whatever) that they could be prior to the loss.
Virgos find comfort in spending time in cemeteries alone at their loved one’s burial site. Virgos are also very spiritually sensitive and may have dreams about deceased loved ones receiving messages from the other side which bring them much comfort. Grief causes the Virgo to become less guarded as they often seek to find comfort in rekindling old friendships and making amends.
The best way to support a Virgo who is experiencing grief is to offer words of comfort and condolence from afar unless you are someone who is in their personal circle. Virgos can become overwhelmed and confused by too much attention especially when they are in a vulnerable state. If they are receptive, continue to reach out without overstepping their boundaries. Repeated phone calls and unannounced visits are not the way to express condolences with Virgos.
