How Long It Takes Each Zodiac Sign To Get Over A Breakup

Breakups suck. What's even worse is the process of getting over a breakup, whether it was your idea to break up or you were on the receiving end.

Everyone deals with breakups differently. Some people don't know how to cope, while others brush it off their shoulders and move on quickly. What you may not know is that looking to astrology may help you figure out how to deal with your heartbreak.

Here's how long getting over a breakup actually takes, depending on your zodiac sign. 

1. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Aquarians don’t even really need to bounce back. Chances are, it ended because they already had their eye on someone or something else. They’ll love you hard while you’re theirs though, and who can ask for more than that?

8. Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

The Sagittarius clan will act like they are over a heartbreak long before they actually are. They will seem fine on the outside, but internally they will be going over every detail.

9. Virgo (August 23-September 22)

A Virgo will take a little longer to get over a heartbreak, not because of you, but because they feel like it is a personal attack on their own judgment. Then once they are over the heartbreak, they will overthink why it took them so long to get over it in the first place. Classic over thinkers, but also classic over lovers.

10. Leo (July 23-August 22)

A Leo will throw themselves into their career during a heartbreak. They will work and work until everything they are trying not to feel will burst inside them. It seems as though they get over heartbreak quickly, but that’s only because they are suppressing the emotions they are trying so desperately to ignore.

11. Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpios are masters of the cold shoulder. They will ignore whoever hurt them for as long as they are feeling hurt. This is because they can’t handle getting over someone while the someone is around. Unless the person in question lives far away or runs in different circles, a Scorpio will likely always feel a little piece of their heart bruised when they see the one they used to picture forever with.

12. Libra (September 23-October 22)

It’s no surprise that Libras are dead last on this list. They are notorious for multiple chances, partially because it probably took them forever to find someone they actually liked. They feel deeply, and don’t take anything lightly, making them great partners but terrible rebounders.
