Zodiac, Heartbreak

Look at your heartbreak as a step closer to "the one."

Relationships end for a host of different reasons. We tend to have trouble wrapping our minds around why our hearts keep getting broken. Is it me? Is it them?

Why people break your heart is not often clear. All we know that is that somebody doesn't want to be with us anymore. Is it me? Is there something wrong with me? Do I need to change in order to be more likable? More loveable?


Or is it them? Maybe they have trouble trusting others. Maybe they don't believe in love. Maybe they're looking for something specific, but that something is not you.

It's hard to know for sure. Sometimes, the reasons don't even make sense. You thought you were getting along quite well and even started imagining a future with them. As it turns out, they don't quite feel the same way, nor do they see the future that you see.

But your zodiac sign can certainly point you in the direction of figuring out why it is that your heart keeps getting broken time and time again.

Zodiac signs can show us our most dominant personality, as well as our flaws and weaknesses. There's nothing wrong with being flawed or having a weakness; sometimes, our potential partners can look past them. But other times, they can't; thus, it leads to them breaking your heart.

Maybe they don't mean to break your heart. Giving you heartache could be the last thing they wanted. But they want their happiness too. Wouldn't you want that for yourself? 


Look at your heartbreak as a step closer to "the one." It may not have been the person who broke your heart, but "the one" will certainly not break yours. 

It's an unfortunate truth, but some people, no matter how good they look together, are just incompatible in more ways than one. Find out what it is that makes them break your heart.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is definitely a sign that's kind at heart, but that kindness doesn't always make itself known to others. You can come across as being self-interested, independent to a fault, and uninterested in long-term commitment and sharing anything in your life. This can be a real problem when being pursued seriously by a potential partner.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is a loyal friend but is also stubborn as heck. You have trouble letting things go and often stay mad about things way longer than is needed. Even if your partner is wrong and apologizes, you let that anger keep boiling. That's enough to push any lover away from you for good.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis are the free spirits — the Coachella-going, Phish-following zodiac sign. You can be difficult to convince to be committed, and even once committed, you tend to just go off and do your own thing anyway. This can be incredibly off-putting to your partner. Consider your partners' needs before you change your relationship status. Are you really ready for this?

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is a caretaker and while they can rely on themselves fairly well, in a relationship they tend to get clingy and smother their partner. It's a kind of passion that isn't always enjoyed or even wanted. You need to think about the kind of space that is important to your partner and grant it to them.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo is the sign that won't cheat on you, and in a lot of ways that's the best thing to have in a monogamous partner, but you also tend to be egotistical and vain. Those aren't particularly ideal tendencies. You argue points to fiercely and you try too hard to win. You might feel good about yourself in doing so, but it's really irritating to the people around you.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo is the least trusting of the signs. You're the partner most likely to snoop around in underwear drawers and check on your partner's browser history. Any level of doubt and jealousy in a relationship will absolutely kill it before you know it. You need to trust your partner, even if mistrust is in your nature. You have more than one nature. Don't appeal to your basal instincts.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are the most hopeful of the signs and this can definitely be a problem in a relationship. You tend to take on partners that aren't really right for you and try to change them into the person you need for them to be. This is a disaster waiting to happen. They will not stand for it. You need to learn to take it or leave it when it comes to your love life.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio is certainly passionate to say the very least, but your passion sometimes translates to jealousy and absurd behavior. You can't control the one you love. You can't cling to them. You can't be possessive of them. Kick those habits to the curb. Like we said to Libra, you have more than one nature. Don't be such a Scorpio. Keep the good aspects, leave the bad.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius is the kind of sign to hike 14 hours one day and go scuba diving the next. That can be a lot of fun for your partner, but also a little bit tiring. Your high expectations will get you into trouble. If you're an extrovert and your partner is an introvert, let them stay home once in a while. It's not an insult against your lifestyle. Just know not everyone can be as adventuresome as you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorns have the hardest time opening themselves up and trusting their partners. You act like your partner has to do some magical thing or things to earn your trust. Trust isn't earned. Mistrust is earned. Don't assume the worst just because you can't see them 24/7. That smothering jealousy will ruin any relationship fast.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius are smart. You're the kind of person who always has some witticism on the tip of your tongue. It can be kinda fun to be with such a quick-minded person but know when to turn it off. You tend to get into tit-for-tat type arguments and squabbles with people, and that can turn off a lover real quick.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces tend to be wildly emotional at times. But Pisces is particularly susceptible to longing for ex-lovers. You don't want to be alone, but if you're still hot for your ex, don't start dating someone new. You have to learn to get over your ex and leave your baggage behind before you take up with someone new. If you still love your ex, no one else is going to settle for you.
