Zodiac, Heartbreak

Facing up to the truth will set you free.

There’s no easy way to get over someone unless you were never really into them and they meant nothing to you. But if you truly cared about them, then it can take some time, because even if your mind is okay with the breakup, your heart may not be.


When a relationship ends, it’s hard to suddenly accept a whole new life without your boo being in it. Yesterday, they were there laughing with you and making plans, and now they’re not.

It doesn’t matter if you were the one who instigated the breakup or your partner did — it can still hurt. You wonder if you made a mistake. Should you have given your relationship another chance or tried to convince your partner to stay and work on your relationship?

We’ve all had those people in our lives who remained in our hearts long after they had broken up with us.

It’s easy to hover around the edges of their lives with social media. You can see how they’ve moved on and how happy they seem. You ask about them with your mutual friends or maybe you still have minimal contact with them — just enough to keep the emotional wound open.

While time does help heal, there are some things that you can do to heal faster. You can look at the relationship with a critical eye. What did you do wrong, what did your partner do wrong, and what did you do wrong together? Were you both honest about your feelings? Did you take the other one into consideration when you made decisions?


There are some things that you must understand about your partner that will help you to move on and that’s where astrology can help. Here's how to get over a breakup, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Your relationship would have eventually tanked because he's totally self-centered, makes irrational decisions, and is unpredictable. You never knew when he'd wake up and decide that he was bored with you, or his life and boom he was gone.

He never considered you or your feelings as evidenced by the way he'd bluntly say something upsetting without realizing (and possibly not caring) that it hurt you. You wouldn't have ever been his first priority, only his afterthought.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Look, you put in the time. You thought if you could prove to him that you were trustworthy, that he'd eventually open up to you but that never happened. It would have been a relationship of desperately trying to get him to change and getting frustrated when he didn't.

And forget about ever being right or winning an argument — he'd never allow that. His stubbornness and bull-headedness would have worn you down. Life is short and you need to take advantage of the joys it has to offer, not spend all your time waiting for someone to change.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

On the surface, he looked perfect, charming, smart, and was good-looking. When you talked with him, it seemed as if he really got you. However, he was the king of inconsistency.

One minute he was fascinated by you, and the next, he was bored and fidgety. You absolutely couldn't trust that he'd be faithful to you because he was constantly checking out other women and men. If you didn't want an open relationship, the breakup was inevitable.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You wanted to be there but it was exhausting keeping up with his moods and he felt every emotion deeply and wanted to dissect every detail. The truth is he's a whiner and the constant complaining and examining of his life, and his complete disinterest of yours, wasn't exactly satisfying for you.

If you look at him with open eyes, you'll see he's much better as a friend, not a boyfriend. You don't want the responsibility of being his personal unpaid therapist.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He was spectacular — so dazzling that people looked up to and admired him. However, when you were together it was almost as if a part of you ceased to exist because everything had to be about him. It was never about you and your needs took a back seat to his.

Much of the time that you were together was taken up with you reassuring him about how amazing he was. He has a massive ego that needs a steady stream of praise to keep going. You deserve to be the center of attention, too, not just a member of his support staff.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He could never just be happy as he was always on a constant search for the flaw or the imperfection. He was kind of a downer and while you tried (repeatedly) to lift his spirits, he always found some way to make things a little less fun and little more depressing.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Since he wasn't exactly practical, that left you to be the adult in the relationship and that got old fast. Unlike a Virgo, the Libra guy only wants to have fun and it's challenging for them to handle any issues that might arise, leaving you to take care of everything. He'd rather buy drinks for the table than pay the electric bill.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He was very controlling and when you didn't cave to his every demand, there was trouble. He was passionate about you which was good... until it wasn't and he morphed into an obsessive stalker. When he didn't like your answers to questions like "Where were you?" or "Why didn't you answer my text?" he'd simply accuse you of lying.

When things weren't tense, you had a great relationship, but as time went on there was almost constant tension which made you feel suffocated and exhausted.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

He wasn't exactly killing it at adulting. Whenever a problem came up or he thought you were getting too close, he either took off or he made a joke about it. He couldn't be serious ever and that caused some very inappropriate and awkward encounters, like when you brought him home to meet the parents.

How could he not know that diarrhea jokes are hardly appropriate at the dinner table, especially when trying to make a good first impression? He's a 10-year-old boy trapped in a man's body.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

He cared more about making and keeping money than he cared about you — or at least that's how it felt. Work seemed to consume him to the point where you didn't even feel as if you rated for him.

He never wanted to go out at night because he had work the next day (even on the weekends!) and he rarely took a vacation. He also wasn't very affectionate which made you wonder if you were anything more than arm candy for him.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Talk about mansplaining! This guy is a pro at it. He was constantly talking down to you as if you didn't have any idea about the most basic topic. Since he's brilliant, he could come off as patronizing and condescending without that being his intention. He never made you feel as if you were his equal, and the truth is, you're his superior in almost every way.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

He has big dreams and while he's gifted artistically, his concentration is weak and his focus is easily diverted. He gets very sad when he feels as if he's not getting the acclaim that he deserves and it was up to you to constantly pick up the pieces. While he's very loving, he doesn't have a great sexual appetite.

You felt as if you were more of his agent rather than his significant other. The good thing is he's probably way more upset about the breakup than you could ever be and you've most likely inspired a number of songs, paintings or poems. You're now a muse to his creativity.
