Breakup Zodiac Astrology

You need to know how he's going to react BEFORE you make a move.

Breaking up can be hard to do, especially if you don't know where to start. Oftentimes, we end up screaming at our partner and making the break up worse than it needs to be. Other times, we end up closing up and never resolve anything because we're too prideful to be honest.

You might already have your break up speech memorized (or break up text ready to send), but maybe learning a little bit more about your partner will make the whole thing easier.

You might be skeptical, but getting to know him better through his Zodiac sign can help you understand why your relationship is failing in the first place. Zodiac sign characteristics can be very eye opening, whether you want to learn more about yourself or someone close to you.


ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19): When an Aries is in a relationship, they are always looking for the next adventure. They usually take the lead in relationships thanks to their confident personality, which can sometimes be seen as overbearing to their partner. When dealing with a break up, an Aries can be quick to anger, which is why it is important to keep a level head when breaking up with them.

Be prepared to hear some selfish comments from an Aries, as well. If you stop being someone they can try new things with and show off their fearlessness to, chances are they will break up with you first.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20): A Taurus loves being in a relationship with someone who is down to earth like them; they have no time for someone who is high-maintenance and focused too much on themselves. A Taurus can be stubborn, but consider it one of their strengths because when a relationship turns for the worst they will try their hardest to keep you.

Be prepared to deal with someone who is jealous and unmoving at times when dating a Taurus. Even though they will fight for their relationship, when it comes down to the break up, they will undoubtedly refuse to listen to your side. The best way to handle breaking up with a Taurus is to be 100% honest with them.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): One of the biggest reasons relationships with a Gemini don't last is their inconsistency. A Gemini is adaptable, which makes them a great partner for any sign. However, that also means that they get along with everyone, making it possible for them to use their partners even if they seem sincere.

One of Gemini's biggest shortcomings is their ability to be superficial; they can be smart about it, making you feel like your relationship is more important than it really is. When breaking up with a Gemini, get straight to the point; they have no time for drawn-out bullshit.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Cancers are great in relationships because they love to show how much they care for their partner. A Cancer isn't afraid to be emotional with their partner, which makes them easy to connect with on a deeper level. One of their best qualities is how protective they can be over those they love, but that can also be a weakness. In a relationship, a Cancer's protectiveness can feel like clinginess, which can turn their partner off big time.

When breaking it off with a Cancer, they can get moody and overemotional; watch out for quick changes in emotion.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22): Leos are all about giving. When they are in a relationship, they are generous and kind. You never have to worry about a Leo being unfaithful, either. When dating a Leo, you can guarantee that you'll be trying something new all the time. One of the biggest reasons a Leo's relationship doesn't last is that their leadership can turn into bossiness. Instead of feeling like they're taking the lead, it can feel like a Leo is making all of the decisions for you.

When breaking up with a Leo, stick to your guns; it can sometimes feel like they are patronizing you during an argument.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22): A relationship with a Virgo can be amazingly unique. They are not afraid to get creative in the bedroom and out of it. Virgos love to please their partners so be prepared to be spoiled. When arguments or miscommunication arises, a Virgo will want to analyze exactly what went wrong; this can be great if they weren't such perfectionists. Because Virgos like being meticulous, if something goes wrong for them, you will never hear the last of it.

Keep your head held high when going through a break up with a Virgo; chances are they will try to tear you down by being overcritical of you and your relationship with them.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22): Dating a Libra is special because it is all about the romance. Libras love to charm their partners with both their words and their actions. Because they are social creatures, Libras can be great partners for any sign. Unfortunately, this can also get them into a lot of trouble. Libras can be very flirtatious, which can sabotage their relationships.

When ending it with a Libra, hold your ground. They can be indecisive, which means they might flip flop between wanting you back and never wanting to talk to you again.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21): There is never a dull moment when you date a Scorpio. Scorpios are determined to keep their relationships exciting, which means trying new things and getting you out of your comfort zone. They are also very passionate, which means dynamite sex for the both of you. However, they can get jealous very fast, which can end up being a main topic during arguments.

When dealing with a break up between you and a Scorpio, don't take anything at face value; Scorpios are known for being secretive. You might have to pry to get information out of them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19): A Sagittarius can be spontaneous people, which can make dating them thrilling. They are also very honest, so there will never be a time when you feel like the two of you aren't communicating. When dating a Sagittarius, their optimism and positive outlook on life will definitely rub off on you. While spontaneity can be exciting in a new relationship, it can make them seem irresponsible.

Be careful to choose your words carefully when breaking up with a Sagittarius because they can be insensitive when they are hurt.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19): Capricorns take pride in having long relationships. They are loyal partners who will take the time to work through problems if it means saving their relationship. Capricorns are also hardworking individuals and don't mind taking a few extra steps to get things right the first time.

Dealing with a break up between you and a Capricorn can be difficult, though. They are known to be pessimistic, which means they may try to find fault with their partner and their relationship. Capricorns can also be very passive, so be prepared to do most of the talking when ending it as they won't want to deal with it.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18): Dating an Aquarius means dating someone who is independent. They do not rely on their partner for everything, which can kind of feel as if they don't love you as much as they do. When an Aquarius cares about you, they show it through their actions; whether this means remembering your favorite flowers or getting creative on date night, they are one of the most dependable signs. Unfortunately, their shortcomings can easily get in the way of their relationships. It isn't hard for an Aquarius to be unpredictable; they tend to change their minds frequently.

When ending a relationship with an Aquarius, be prepared to deal with a very detached attitude.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20): A Pisces understands better than anyone how important emotions are. Whether they are with friends or in a relationship, they use their sensitive nature to get closer to others. They are also very selfless people, which means they pride themselves in pleasing their partners. However, many people will agree than a Pisces can have their head in the clouds very often; this can mean getting distracted from what's more important.

If you are going through a break up with a Pisces, understand that while they can be guarded and private, it doesn't necessarily mean that they don't have something important to say.
