How Each Horoscope Sign Deals With Disappointment

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries optimism doesn't allow them to dwell on the negative for too long. These individuals are about moving on and finding something else to focus on.

It could be participating in some type of competition, doing something that takes them out of their comfort zone, or starting a new project.

If Aries throws themselves into something they're passionate about, they won't get too hung up about the disappointment.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus individuals are persistent, so a disappointment isn't going to get them off-track.

After experiencing a disappointment, this sign will show themselves some compassion and kindness so they can heal and keep going.

They know that things don't always come together in the way they want it, but that shouldn't mean you should stop.

Take time to process your feelings but don't let it stall your plans.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

It's very helpful for Geminis to talk things out with a friend or someone they trust after a disappointment.

If this sign keeps their feelings inside, it's just not good for them. Those feelings may come out in the future and cause damage.

So, talk to friends and family about your feelings of disappointment. You’re a very smart sign Gemini and have high expectations.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

It's very important that Cancers allow themselves to feel. They’re extremely sensitive, and if they don't process things emotionally, it could affect their behavior and decision-making.

This sign internalizes their feelings of disappointment and it could lead to emotions such as anger and intense sadness, and be even harder for them to bounce back from.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are disappointed every day in hundreds of ways, but they don't let it get them down. This sign likes to focus on the future and keep going. They also know that people look to them for guidance.

Leos feel like they have to be strong — not only for themselves but for the people who look up to them.

Disappointment is part of the process of getting what you want and creating positive change, so Leos are willing to pay that price.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos understand that disappointment is just part of life. When they get disappointed, they look for the lesson, they adjust, and they continue to grow. For this sign, almost everything can be fixed or made better.

The key is to find the lessons that you need, even if they're not obvious.

Let's say Virgo enters a storytelling competition and they lose. Maybe they lose two or three times and it's very disappointing, but each time they lose, Virgo learns a little bit more and, eventually, can take that knowledge and win.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras can take a disappointment pretty hard but, eventually, they'll try to change their perspective about it. This sign will reframe it and try to take away its importance.

Let’s say they didn't win the lottery ticket, but that doesn't mean they'll never will. It could just be another time.

It's best if Libra don’t look at disappointment as an absolute, but as something that's more fluid. 

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are much more sensitive than they want people to think, and they tend to hide their feelings. When they get disappointed, that feeling of loss or being let down can sometimes morph into anger or revenge.

This sign doesn’t like feeling as if there's nothing they can do to change a situation. So, they take action so they feel better.

Scorpios refuse to feel sorry for themselves.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

To get over a disappointment, this sign like to makes plans. They need to be able to have something to look forward to, that way they don't feel like their stuck in a never-ending circle of disappointment and frustration.

Sagittarius looks towards the things and experiences that are guaranteed to make them happy, and they focus on them.

For them, it's about taking the power away from disappointment and brushing it off.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are practical and wise, and if they let EVERY disappointment they experienced affect them, they'd never get anywhere.

This sign tries to not to spend too much time dissecting a disappointment; instead, they learn what they can from it, mainly to work on improving.

Capricorns work on understanding their part in a disappointment and they’re all about setting themselves up for more successes than disappointments.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians handle disappointments in stride. When you're as creative and innovative as this sign, disappointments happen.

For them, it's about not emotionally investing in everything so you don't get disappointed as often.

They detach themselves from the factors of the disappointment and try to forget about it as quickly as they can.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

When a Pisces is disappointed, they try to occupy themselves in something they care passionately about.

This sign can be overly emotional, and it can be better for them to not give into feelings of sadness when it comes to disappointment.

Instead, Pisces might lose themselves in art, do volunteer work, or put their focus on their own creative project.

Disappointment can be a source of inspiration for a pisces— it's one door closing that forces you to look for alternatives.
