There are some people in our lives that we just can’t forget. We want to let go of our exes and move on, but there’s something about them that we just can’t quit. Is the inability to let go something that some of us have, and some of us don’t?

When you're an addictive zodiac sign, people will flock to you and find it hard to let you go. For your exes, a horoscope telling them to move on might go in one ear and out the other. But astrology knows that not everyone has as much ease living without someone.

If you’ve ever obsessed over a past love, you know the feeling. You may even be in another relationship but that doesn't stop you from thinking about your ex. There’s a part of you that will always hold space for them in your heart. You may try to forget them by stopping yourself whenever you think about them.

Some people make such a lasting mark on us that they become a part of us. But obsessing over someone or just not letting them go emotionally can be very unhealthy, especially if it affects your current feelings of self-esteem or a new relationship. And there’s something about these addictive zodiac signs that make them especially difficult to get over.

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Yes, Virgos are the hardest sign to get over. Why? Because they're everything. Sure, they may be a little critical, but they're there when you need them. They're smart so they always have something interesting to talk about, they're sensitive so they have an artistic side, and they can fix anything — even a broken heart.

You probably were in the process of healing a broken heart when you started getting involved with them, and before you knew it, they helped you get over that heartbreak. You can trust a Virgo with anything and they always keep their promises. If you left them for someone flashier, it wouldn't take you long to realize you made a big mistake.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

A Taurus is down to earth enough that you can completely trust them, and they're very patient so it's difficult to annoy them. Taurus have a love of beauty, art, and opulence so they tend to spoil their partners with flowers, delicious meals, and pieces of art. They're always there when you need them, and they are so dependable that you take them for granted.

When a Taurus is in love, they only have eyes for their love, and that person tends to come into their own when they have a love like that. If someone broke up with Taurus because they mistakenly took stable for dull, they'd definitely regret it in the long run.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are incredibly hard to get over. It's flattering when your presence in someone's life is inspiring to the extent that Pisces is inspired. If they're artistic, they probably wrote you poems, created art and songs for you, or made sure you were immortalized in sculpture, photography, or painting. If their artistry was in another area, you always knew that they gave you credit for their best ideas.

They were sensitive, selfless, and treated you with kindness. Pisces are romantic, and looking back it seems as if your relationship was magical.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

It's hard to get over a Libra because you know they did everything they could to please you and your happiness was just as important to them as their own. Libras are usually easy to get along with and easy on the eyes, but when you needed someone to stand up for you, they did so without delay.

A Libra partner is your advocate and a one-person support team. They were social enough that you could take them to any event and they made it better. And they were so romantic and caring that you always felt loved.

5. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are hard to get over because they're so much fun and so lively. You were never bored when you were with them. They were passionate enough to make your toes curl and adventurous enough so that you always pushed your boundaries and felt challenged. You knew that they loved you intensely and that they'll probably have a hard time getting over you too.

While Aries do like the chase, they also enjoy the challenges of keeping love and commitment fresh. They may like to pretend that they're too busy experiencing life to suffer when their heart gets broken, but don't let them fool you. No matter how over=scheduled they may be, they still will be up at night thinking about what they should have done to save the relationship.

6. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Being with a Leo is like having the sun shine on you. They showered you with gifts and made you feel like you were the luckiest person on earth for being chosen. They were passionate, vibrant, and brilliant. They made you feel like you were a better person just being around someone as strong and noble as they were.

Leos are energetic, optimistic, and always up for fun. When you needed them, Leo was there and was what you needed, even if you weren't aware of it at the time. You'll look back at the time you were with Leo and your heart will ache.

7. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

It's hard to quit a Scorpio because you know that they probably haven't quit you. You might not have known everything that was going on in Scorpio's mind, but you knew that they loved you with their whole being. Besides being sexually gifted, this sign loves intensely.

They seemed to know what you needed even before you did, and they were old-school brave when it came to defending you against harm. Scorpio was honest, sensitive, and committed, and they took all those qualities seriously. Know that if a Scorpio loved you, they'll never forget you.
