If you’re someone who looks to the stars for guidance and insight into who you are in this great big world, then you’re most likely already familiar with your zodiac sign and how it represents you.
The zodiac is a powerful tool we can utilize to learn more about who we are and how we operate within the grand scheme of things. It’s especially useful when learning how to cope during the saddest moments in our lives.
Each sign handles grief, sorrow and sadness in their own way. If you’ve been stuck in a rut, learning more about yourself in this area can only help!
