Are you the one who goes chasing after their exes, or do you let go in an instant? Perhaps you need to cry your eyes out, or maybe you feel like a bird that’s been let out of its cage.
Your star sign can tell you a lot about what type of ex you are and how you deal with break-ups. Angelic Diamonds has put together a guide to help you navigate through break-ups seamlessly.
Aries: onto the next quest
Dear Aries, your break-up blues won’t last long, because you’re quickly skimming through your partners until you find the one. On your intellectual quest, you don’t have time for fling things, and once you’ve figured you’re not compatible with someone, you’re quick to leave the grudges behind. Nevertheless, you like keeping your door open just in case, and being friendly and flirtatious with your ex-partners without having your hopes high is a side hobby for you.
However, if your ego is hurt really badly and you were pretty hooked on your partner, your fiery side comes through. We wouldn’t put it past you if a chain of spitefulness blurts out of your mouth when you see your ex in public – you just have to let it out.
To avoid ending up in unpleasant situations after your break-up, be careful not to lure your exes into your playfulness and try to keep your calm if you’re the one who’s been left behind. At the end of the day, you don’t always get to have the final say.
Taurus: let’s be friends
Down-to-earth and emotionally composed, as a Taurus, you deal with break-ups like a true delegate: fair, calm, and keeping up the good relations.
It’s not that you don’t feel sad or have a bit of resentment towards your ex-partner. You care deeply for them; therefore, your emotions are affected. But instead of throwing a tantrum and making a scene out of it, you choose to keep your calm and pretend that everything is fine. You know very well that the biggest favour you can do for your ex is to show them that you’re hurt.
But deep down inside, you tend to reminisce over the past. It might take you a while to get over the break-up, but you’re not malicious in any way. In fact, Taurus people are usually the ones who have to hold back their Aries friends from getting into a fight with their exes. As a loving, devoted, and incredibly committed partner, you make for a friendly ex and are likely to keep in touch with your past lovers.
What you need to focus on is how to look after yourself after the break-up so that you don’t get too caught up in the blues.
Gemini: I’m going to write you a letter
Gemini people are known for their chameleon nature. Indecisiveness is one of your most prominent traits, and that often manifests in your relationships. It’s likely that you’ve been on and off with your partner for quite a while, but now that it’s over…
It’s time for the philosophical quest to begin. Yes, Gemini people are serious overthinkers! You see your past relationships as learning curves and an opportunity to analyse your behaviour and personality. You might even go as far as writing a long letter or text message to your ex in which you share your deep thoughts about what has gone wrong. As a Gemini, you prefer to harness your writing abilities and take the time to structure your thoughts instead of saying things out loud that you might regret later.
You’re most likely going to remain friends with your ex unless they really crossed the line. And if that happens, they will be out of your life forever. You might feel urged to show your discontent not physically but through your wise words and undercover actions.
In order to make the most out of your philosophical nature, use your break-up as an opportunity to embellish your personality and become the best version of yourself.
Cancer: the drama queen
Honest answer required: Is it really over, Cancer?
Although you might have broken up with your partner on paper, until your feelings go completely cold, you will still find a way to finesse your way back into their lives. You have those claws for a reason. You hold onto something until you’re ready to say goodbye.
Once you’ve written the last chapter of your relationship, the drama parade begins. As a Cancer, you are in tune with your emotional side and are quite vocal about it. Waterfalls of tears, late-night ice cream binges, and regular Facebook status updates often define your post-break-up ambience.
God forbid things end badly because you’re going to let everyone know about it and will gather your little army of advocates who will be ready to attack on your command. You have the innate ability to present yourself as the victim in any type of situation, and break-ups are not an exception.
To get over your break-up quicker and regain your personal power again, you just have to let it go!
Leo: quick to forget
Leo, you’re blessed with your inner fire and passionate nature. When you’re in a relationship, you literally shower your partner with love. You’re quick to fall in love and give it everything you’ve got, and you are as quick to fall out of love and find another person who ignites your inner flame. Why reminisce over the past when you have so much love to disperse?
Oftentimes, the reason for your break-ups is that your passionate love isn’t reciprocated, and you feel that you’re not appreciated enough. However, not everyone can keep up with your pace of love-giving.
Once it’s over, it really is over for you. Your pride is bigger than your ability to give second chances – unless you are utterly smitten.
Of course, don’t shy away from expressing it but try and be understanding of the fact that everyone shows their love differently. But, at the end of the day, just be you, because that’s what makes you the happiest!
Virgo: the over-analyser
Your need to know what went wrong in the relationship is overpowering. That’s when your overthinking powers come into play. You will go over every single detail not for the sake of beating yourself up, but because you want to grow.
As a true advocate for enlightenment, you see a relationship as a step to becoming your best self. You learn from your partners and are all about deep intellectual conversations, not just some small talk. That’s why you don’t let just anyone into your life and are quite picky when it comes to choosing your partners.
Once it’s over, you might feel a bit down, but your mind will take over your heart in no time. Take ultimate care of yourself and you’ll emerge even stronger than before!
Libra: the closure seeker
Libra, you’re all about balance and justice, and this really comes through in your relationships and break-ups, retrospectively.
As the connoisseur of harmony, you’re always seeking closure and will go out of your way to find it. You need to make sure that neither you nor your ex-partner will cross each other’s way in a bad way, but you’re completely fine with being good friends after your break-up.
You are an advocate for justice, so it’s important for you to straighten things up. If your ex-partner wishes to get back with you, they need to be prepared for a constant reminder of what they did wrong because no one wastes your time!
Your justice system is impeccable, Libra, but sometimes you just have to let things be, as hard as it is for you.
Scorpio: the vengeful one
Scorpio, you love deeply, and you open up to your partners just as much. You might appear mysterious at first sight, but once your partner gets to know you, you’re ready to share your innermost secrets with them.
Because you’ve revealed your vulnerable side to them, you are really wary of getting exposed once it’s over. Here’s where your vengefulness which you’re famous for in the astrological realms comes into play. If your partner has done you wrong, you won’t rest until you get revenge. But if they’re a sweetheart, it’s likely that you’ll leave them alone and might even low-key miss them.
Realise that revenge will only hurt you and direct your energy to something more fruitful instead.
Sagittarius: the free spirit
Lucky Sagittarius! Your positive mindset and free spirit make you the most laid-back ex of all the star signs.
You just want to fly free all the time, and a break-up can release you into the wild. Nothing can keep you tied down, including your relationships or the past. You quickly forget about your ex and move on without dwelling too much over what’s happened.
When asked about your break-up, you recall the good moments of your relationship and are even likely to say a nice thing or two about your ex-partner. But you’re also an advocate for truth, so if your partner has been mean, you will say so and keep it real.
Fly away, Sagittarius, but make sure your desire to be free doesn’t transform into a constant running away, because you might miss The One!
Capricorn: it’s final
Capricorn, you’re one of the most devoted signs when it comes to relationships. You’re so picky that when you find the right partner, you’re all in!
But your biggest curse is your vast imagination that tends to idealise your partner. When you realise that your current partner is not so perfect after all, you cut them off because you see them as a fraud.
As an ex, you honour your final word and won’t go chasing after your ex-partner. You might not even text them because you’re simply not bothered, and remaining friends with them is also out of the question in most cases.
Perhaps your quick transition from being extremely in love to suddenly cold might be quite harsh, so try to find the balance between the two.
Aquarius: living their best life
Dear Aquarius, your break-up is your own business. Whether you’re crying your eyes out or having the time of your life, nobody else will know how you feel. You’re very good at hiding your emotions and being composed.
But what’s happening behind closed doors is most likely a fiesta of happiness. You’re a king at entertaining yourself, and a break-up will only give you the time and space to do the things you love.
You’re also likely to remain friends forever with your ex and will always be there for them.
Although you’re already great at it, make sure you look after yourself after the break-up. Meditate, journal, express your creativity, and take a ritualistic bath.
Pieces: the clingy type
As a true dreamer, you romanticise every loving encounter you have to such an extent that it’s hard for you to let it go.
Your intense love manifests itself as nostalgia, and it’s likely that you still have pictures of all your ex-partners on the wall. Blinded by the love, you only remember the good memories and that’s when trouble comes in.
It’s likely that you still keep chasing after your ex-partner, and if they offer to get back together, you will accept that offer in an instant – even when this person might not be good for you! You’re not the type who should remain friends with their exes, because you will always have hope that you will be together again.
You should be careful not to cling to toxic people and should always put yourself first!
Break-ups are never easy, but every star sign has their own way of dealing with them. Whether you need to show the whole world how hurt you are or are having the time of your life, what matters the most is your personal happiness, and no one can take that away from you!
