What Your Zodiac Sign Is Like After A Breakup

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is the most decisive when it comes to breaking up. Love, with them, is an earth-shattering experience. They barge into your life so quickly and sweep you away in a whirlwind romance and before you know it, you realize you’ve fallen head over heels with them. However, the moment their heart changes, they leave without hesitation…with you behind, picking up the pieces. They’re gone as swiftly as they came. But rest assured that every bit of their love was real, even if it didn’t last.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

When your Aquarius partner breaks up with you, you’re going to wonder if any of the relationship was real. They have a knack to doing it in the most detached and aloof way, like a business transaction. They focus on facts, not emotions, as they explain to you the reasons for the breakup. As you stare into their blank eyes and composed mask of indifference, your heart just breaks into tiny irreparable pieces knowing that you’ve lost them forever.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are naturally guarded and especially so when it comes to love. It takes them a long time to trust and open up before they settle into a relationship, yet it takes almost no effort for the relationship to break apart. They need you to compromise and understand them and if you’re unwilling to do so, they’re 'sorry, not sorry' to break up with you. Because it is a deal breaker for them if you cannot love them the way they need you to.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When a relationship has run its course, no amount of persuading can change a Capricorn’s mind. You can beg for another shot and cry that you cannot live without them, but just know that all your pitiful pleas fall on an unmovable heart. They still care for you in their own way, and they’re gentle yet firm. They’ll ask you to be clear-minded and to deal with the breakup logically, that this relationship is too hopeless to be saved.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

From the moment you get together with a Sagittarius, you wonder how long will this magnificence belong to you? For they look too worldly and wild to be tied down to anyone. You cherish all the times that you spent together, hoping for a lifetime together. Yet this sign’s biggest deal breaker is commitment for the long haul. When faced with any troubles, they’ll pull away and eventually the breakup you so dread is going to materialize.

They firmly believe that love is a mutual effort and when both parties are not in harmony, they’ll force themselves to walk away even if it’s the most difficult decision they have to make.
