zodiac signs who are crazy exes

There’s nothing worse than a crazy ex. While some crazy behavior after a breakup is warranted — I did send my cheating ex horse feces after all — some is just a little bit much. But try telling that to the zodiac signs who are crazy exes!

Naturally, sending someone feces, who clearly deserves it, isn’t much. And neither is a horoscope that indicates this behavior is out of bounds.

But while we all have our own brand of crazy when it comes to the end of a relationship, some people go completely off the deep end, making them the craziest of the crazy. In other words, if you want to avoid having a crazy ex, beware of these six zodiac signs. 

1. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

If Cancer wasn’t so hypersensitive all the time, they wouldn’t be so damn crazy. But if you break up with Cancer and they’re not ready to let you go, you’ll have one hell of a nutcase on your hands.

And because Cancer pretty much sucks at communicating their feelings, even though they have millions of them that lead them straight to Crazy Town, to confront them on their behavior will be useless. They’ll deny it, through and through, even when you catch them spying on you from a tree in your front yard.

2. LEO (July 23 – August 22)

When it comes to being a crazy ex, Leo does things in a different way than Cancer. While Cancer is so sensitive and has a hard time getting those emotions under control, Leo, on the other hand, is too arrogant to be caught in a tree acting like a crazy ex.

In fact, Leo’s way of being crazy is to basically try to make you feel like a fool to dump them. YOU dumped THEM?! Do you not know what a catch they are?!

Whether it’s text, email, or any possible social media platform, Leo will make damn sure you know you effed up, and to a point that you’ll have to block them. Dumping an egomaniac is never fun.

3. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Similar to Leo, Libra shares the same, “how dare YOU break up with ME?” mentality. And because Libra is so charming and want everything to be beautiful, to rock that world by dumping them puts everything in a tailspin. Meaning, they’re out of revenge.

Not like murder revenge, of course, but they definitely want to make you feel just as humiliated as you made them feel — and they’ll go to great lengths to do it. (Fun fact: I'm a Libra.)

4. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

For all the smack people talk about Scorpio, it’s important to realize the reason they make for one hell of a crazy ex is because they’re really passionate. They love deeply so, naturally, they lose deeply. Then, their obsessive nature kicks in and they want to know why this has happened.

While they may not track you down like Cancer, belittle you like Leo, or humiliate you like Libra, they will find you when you least expect it and demand you explain to them what happened. And if you don’t want to give answers, they’ll continue to hunt you down until they get those answers.

So, if you don’t want to tell them the truth and you plan on breaking up with a Scorpio soon, I suggest you come up with a believable lie now.

5. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

The combination of being both possessive and stubborn is the what makes Taurus so crazy when it comes to exes. Taurus is actually that sign you break up with, but if they’re not ready to end the relationship, they won’t hear you.

So, the next day they show up, like nothing is wrong. Again, you have to tell them it’s over. and again, they'll refuse to hear you. They’re not aggressive about it, in that you need to call in back-up every time Taurus comes by, but they’re definitely assertive enough that you may want to consider moving.

6. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

While Taurus may have you looking into new cities to move to, Pisces' crazy ex behavior is a bit more subtle. First of all, Pisces never forgives. So there’s that. Secondly, because they never forgive, there will always, and I mean always, be bad blood between you two once you breakup.

Although it may not affect your daily life, like an evil ghost that never quite goes away, Pisces' wrath will have you looking over your shoulder for a very long time. You may never see them again, but that lack of forgiveness and hatred will be like a cancer that slowly eats away at your soul.
