Disappointment is something we learn about from a young age. Feeling left out, someone who doesn’t belong with you, broken promises, unfulfilled dreams and even your own failure all cause disappointment in various forms.
Aries(March 21 – April 20)
Your inherent optimism stops you from dwelling too much on the negative. You move on and find something else to focus on.
It could help you enter a competition, do something that takes you out of your comfort zone, or start a new project.
If you throw yourself into something you’re passionate about, you won’t be too disappointed.
Taurus(April 21 – May 21)
You are quite a resilient and strong person, so a disappointment will not bring you down.
After experiencing one, you will actually show some compassion and kindness so that you can heal and move on with your life.
You know that things won’t always go your way. Take time to process your feelings, but don’t let them block your plans.
It is very helpful for you to talk to a friend or someone you trust after a disappointment. If you don’t surface what you feel, it’s not good for you. Those feelings can resurface in the future and cause damage.
You are a very intelligent person and it will help you to talk about a situation or person that did not live up to your expectations.
Cancer(June 22 – July 21)
You are a very sensitive person, and if you don’t process things emotionally, this could affect your behavior and decisions.
You need to be in a safe space and have a support system when you are going through a disappointment. If you internalize your feelings, it could lead to emotions like anger and intense sadness, and it could make it even harder for you to heal.
Leo(July 22 – August 22)
Like many of us, you are disappointed every day in a hundred ways, but you don’t let anything get you down.
You have to focus on the future and see your life because you know people will look to you for guidance.
You must be strong, not only for yourself, but also for the people who respect you. Disappointment is part of the process of getting what you want and making positive changes, and you’re willing to pay that price.
Virgo(August 23 – September 22)
You know that disappointment is part of life. When you feel down, you look for the lesson, adapt and keep evolving.
For you, everything can be fixed or improved. The key is to find the lessons you need, even if they aren’t obvious.
Let’s say you enter a contest and lose. You may even lose two or three times and it’s very disappointing, but each time you lose, you learn a little more and eventually gain the knowledge to win.
Libra(September 23 – October 22)
You can take disappointment pretty hard, but eventually you’ll try to change your perspective on it. You will reconsider the disappointment and try to take it out of importance.
You didn’t win the much-desired trip in the contest, but that doesn’t mean you never will. There will be another occasion or another circumstance.
Scorpio(October 23 – November 21)
You are a much more sensitive person than you let on and you tend to hide your feelings. When you are disappointed, that feeling of loss or failure can sometimes turn into anger or revenge.
You don’t like feeling like you can’t do anything to change a situation, so you have to take action to feel better.
You are mature, balanced and strive to stay in control. You don’t want them complaining about your pity.
Sagittarius(November 22 – December 21)
To get over a disappointment, you need to make a plan. You need to work on it because you don’t like feeling stuck in an endless cycle of disappointment and frustration.
Look to the things and experiences that can make you happy and focus on them. For you, it’s about minimizing the power of disappointment and pushing it away.
Capricorn(December 22 – January 19)
You are a practical and wise person, and if you let every disappointment you experience get to you, you would never get anywhere.
Try not to spend too much time dissecting a disappointment. Instead, learn from it, put those lessons into practice, and work to improve.
The important thing is to prepare for more successes than disappointments!
Aquarius(January 20 – February 18)
You deal with disappointments and know that they are inevitable. For you, it’s about not getting emotionally involved in anything so you don’t get disappointed too often.
Detach yourself from the factors of disappointment and try to forget about it as soon as you can. You are very creative and prefer to look for solutions rather than let failure or disappointment get to you.
Pisces(February 19 – March 20)
When you’re down, you try to occupy your mind and time with something you’re passionate about. You can be overly sensitive at times, and it may be better for you not to give in to feelings of sadness when faced with a disappointment.
You could get lost in an art exhibit, volunteer, or focus on a personal project. Disappointment can be a source of inspiration for you.
