How to Treat Under-the-Weather Loved Ones

How to Treat Under-the-Weather Loved Ones
Does your son sink into total dependency when he's got a cold, while your daughter gets edgy and impatient? Does your husband or lover refuse to even admit he’s under the weather? Each of us has a different way of dealing with being sick. Understanding those individual foibles will make your life easier if you’re the one looking after a loved one.

Aries needs their sick bed to be loaded down with games, be they video or adventure board games. Being hyperactive, the Ram doesn't take kindly to being stuck in one place. Make it fun and they’ll be less fractious.

Taurus, on the other hand, just adores being looked after. They don’t enjoy their body letting them down but all those extra treats and cuddles will keep them smiling.

Gemini can’t stand the sameness of being trapped in a bed with nothing to do. Give them a phone, a pile of comics and books and have a family schedule of hourly visits to keep their minds engaged.

Cancer wants to be wrapped up in a blanket on the living room sofa -- not shut away in a bedroom. They’ll get clingy and will brighten if their favorite food is dished out.

Leo has a disconnect between their brain and their body, so they really don’t understand what they need when ill. Do their thinking for them in terms of what’s good and what’s bad for them. They like being center of attention, and will readily embrace major pampering.

Virgo knows better than you what’s wrong with them and what the best remedies are. Let them research on the internet and various medical journals. They also love to read, and won’t mind the peace of a sick room.

Libra dislikes anything too physically messy, so they are often unsettled by illness. But they do adore flowers, so adorn their sick room: buy them fashion and interior decoration magazines and they’ll start to get well.

Scorpio won’t admit how bad they feel, so you may have to coax them into coming clean about their symptoms. They can be difficult, stubborn patients and might need to be mollycoddled into submission.

Sagittarius and Aquarius share the Fire/Air sign restlessness, so they need to be placated with endless reading material, a laptop, games and company. They hate being shut away.

Capricorn is resigned to life being tricky at times, so they will sigh and sink into a minor gloom. They need morale boosting with whatever takes their fancy -- from special treats to healing aromatics in their sick room.

Pisces will need sensitive handling, and they will do better with a less clinical approach. Supply them with music and films in their bedroom, light a few scented candles and tempt them with delicious food.
