I made this with moon signs in mind but do consider Rising and Sun. Also kinda based on personal experiences.
Earth signs: instead of telling you how everything will be okay and looking on the bright side/future they focus on the present. Is there anything I can do to help? Is there anything that can be done to fix your problem? Have you tried x? Physical comfort, if they know you like that.
Fire signs: distractions and a focus on what you can do. Let’s go explore. Let’s egg their house! Wanna go get a tattoo? They/it was lame anyway. Might rant about it more than you will.
Water signs: sympathises. Looks after you. Might exaggerate the situation. Might try take control like earth signs. You should do this, not this. This is what I would do. I’m so sorry you’re going through this. You don’t deserve this.
Air signs: lightens the situation. Tries to put it into perspective. But hey you didn’t really like them anyway right? Lolz. Why does it bother you so much? It’s not worth your time. 3 years from now just think about where you’ll be.
I can see how some would overlap. Capricorn might be similar to air etc. Cancer/cap/Aries/libra (cardinals) can also take the assertive, what can you do approach. I might remake this with specific signs but I’m trying to focus on what the elements share.
