You won't have a friend in these exes.

Although there’s no such thing as a “great” ex, there are definitely people who make worse exes than others. And depending on where in the zodiac that person was born, just how "good" or "bad" of an ex a person is can be determined by their zodiac sign.

Yes, just like so many of our other bad — and good — traits, we can turn to astrology and our horoscope and blame them instead. At least it's better than accepting responsibility, right?

So while no one wants to be a bad ex, sometimes that's just how the dice rolls. From crying 500 damn rivers, to manipulating the eff out of your brain, to forcing you to pack your bags and leave town, here are the seven zodiac signs that make the worst exes.

1. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

The combination of being stubborn and possessive makes Taurus a nightmare ex.

You know those movies where the scorned ex is standing over the lead actor with a chainsaw while chanting, “If I can’t have you, now one can”? Yeah, that’s about what a breakup with a Taurus looks like — if they can’t have you, no one can. Seriously.

2. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

At first, a breakup with Gemini looks kind of OK, but then the evil twin rears its ugly head. One minute Gemini can tell you they have no hard feelings, everything happens for a reason, and you two should totally get coffee next week, then the next minute, you see hundreds of fliers all over your street with your face on them and a headline reading, “I have herpes!”

Yeah, that’s Gemini as an ex for you: just when you think it’s OK to relax, they tell your neighborhood you have herpes, even if you don’t.

3. LEO (July 23 – August 22)

If Leo weren’t so arrogant, having them as an ex wouldn’t be so bad. You’d simply part ways and that would be that. However, Leo is that arrogant and in being so arrogant is truly appalled that YOU would breakup with THEM. Like, really? Like, who the hell do you think you are?

You should be grateful that Leo even gave you the time of day! You’re nothing but a plebe; Leo is a champion, a warrior, a true winner — you’re NOTHING! At least that’s what the texts will look like from your Leo ex.

4. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

It’s Libra’s manipulative ways that makes them a hellish ex. Not only do they carry some of that Leo type of arrogance with them, but they can also take any situation and flip it on its side.

Even if Libra is now your ex because they cheated, stole, and ran over your cat, they can tickle something in your brain that makes you believe that you’re the one who’s at fault — you’re the cheater, you’re the thief, you’re the one who ran over the cat. Then, once you come to your senses and realize it wasn’t you, Libra gets her claws in there and does it all over again. And guess what? You fall for it again!

5. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

The problem with Scorpio is their reputation proceeds them which, in itself, makes them a horrible ex. Because they’re so secretive and so obsessive and so focused on whatever they put their mind to, it’s hard not to be nervous 24/7 if your ex is Scorpio.

Even if they have zero intention of causing trouble, the Scorpio reputation will put the fear of god in anyone who breaks up with them.

6. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

If you break up with Pisces, you can forget about ever being friends or even being able to have a friendly interaction should you accidentally run into each other. In fact, Pisces' inability to forgive and unwillingness to let go of a grudge is so set in stone that when you do breakup, you better decide who gets what friends in the breakup, because with Pisces there’s no sharing of friends or even any common ground.

Honestly, you should probably just move to a new city if your ex is Pisces. Unless, of course, you enjoy having random days ruined because you accidentally ran into your Pisces ex. Pisces is incapable of forgiveness.

7. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

While Cancer may not have the evil streak that the rest of these zodiac signs that make the worst exes, the reason they’re on this list is because of their hypersensitivity. What I mean by this is that breaking up with Cancer is like unleashing the Hoover Dam of tears.

Between voicemail messages, waiting for you after work, standing out under your window, Cancer is one of the worst exes because they’re never going to stop crying and making sure you know that they’re crying because of you forever and ever! Have fun!
