ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Instead of talking it out, this sign may need to physically get it out. If time is an issue or a workout is not possible, offer to take a walk with an Aries or do some stretches together.
A punching bag would be even better that way Aries could let some steam out. Just helping them focus on their body instead of their troubles is the best way to comfort them.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
The kind of comforting that often works best for this sign is letting them know you're there for them and that you care. Give them your full attention, don't try to maneuver the conversation back to you, and be appropriately affectionate with them.
Taurus respond very well to touch, and it can help them relax while processing their feelings.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
A great way to comfort a Gemini is to let them get their feelings out, whether it's by letting them rant or encouraging them to journal about it.
If they hold back their emotions, they'll only gonna blow up later on and things will be worse. Make sure you ask a Gemini a ton questions to get them to open up.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
This sign feels their feelings strongly, so to comfort them you may have to be their cheerleader. Point out the positives of a situation or how things will be better in time.
Just giving Cancers a shoulder to cry on is very helpful, and letting them know that they’re cared for and loved will benefit them greatly.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
This sign is really strong and brave, and it can be difficult for them to let down their walls and show their vulnerable side.
What you can do is let them know that they’re safe to feel what they're feeling with you. Let them know you won’t judge them or think any less of them for being human.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
This sign is going to have to process everything before they can really get their feelings out. You need to be there supporting them with whatever they need. If they want to be alone, let them know you're in the other room if they change their mind; if they want to talk things out, then be available to listen.
Virgos are used to fixing things, so they may reject any comfort from someone besides themselves.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
This may sound odd, but when Libras are feeling sad or upset, one the best things you can do to comfort them is to distract them. If they think too much, they'll go deeper and deeper into themselves and get very depressed.
They just need time enough to fully process their feelings, so take them to the movies or go get coffee — anything, as long as it isn't just sitting in silence.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
For this sign you have to let them know that you understand and empathize with them, and then leave them alone. If they ask you to stay, that's great, but don't assume that they want any company.
Scorpios generally like to process their feelings on their own time and at their own speed. It’s best to back away from them until they've cooled down a bit.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
This sign tends to not dwell on things and are very good at managing their feelings, so let them… tell you how you can comfort them. They may just want to have a conversation or watch a stupid comedy.
As long as they know you're there for them and that you care, you're good.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
This sign is going to want you to believe that they're completely self-sufficient and can handle their emotions on their own. Play along with it but let them know that you're there for them… if they wish to open up.
Don't rush them or try to force them; let them come around on their own time. Capricorns are strong and they're used to dealing with things on their own, but it may be hard for them to accept help.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Emotions tend to embarrass this sign, so they're not really comfortable sharing them. It's best to give Aquarius some space and let them process their feelings on their own.
Getting them out in nature will help them feel better, so suggest taking a hike through the woods or taking a swim in the ocean.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
If this sign is upset, they're going to need a lot of comforting, but they might not need it right away. It’s important to be sensitive to their needs.
Encourage them to work through their emotions creatively and let them know you're there whenever they need you. Don't make them feel as if they're odd or strange for feeling things as deeply as they do.
