Why Your Ex Started Texting You Again, According To Astrology

He texted, “I miss you” and “I want you back.” These words can be touching, and dangerous. His message can signal that he has learned just how much he cares about you, or that he'd just rather not be alone.

We all hear the stories of the on-again-off-again couple, and nobody is aspiring to that, but it can be so easy to get caught up in that cycle. On the other hand, we’ve also heard of the lost loves and “could have beens.” It’s tormenting to wonder, more so that to just have a relationship fail.

So what are you to do when you get that text message from you ex that says, “I miss you”? Is that plea to take back your ex?

You could say you broke up for a reason, or you could say that reason was flawed, nothing but a giant mistake. Are you and your ex star-crossed lovers, or were you always meant to be?

Now you can turn to his zodiac sign and find guidance from the cosmos. Look up your ex’s zodiac sign below to get insight on what went wrong and what it means for your future. Here's why he texted you again, and what his intentions might be according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

If you were to categorize the zodiac from the most to least impulsive, Aries would be at the top of the list. Make sure your previous lover isn’t back on a whim, and is really ready to give your relationship 100% now and forever. On that note, guard yourself from any emotional impulsivity you might feel being around your former flame. Briefly: take it slow.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You’ve probably been on your ex’s mind constantly since the breakup. But, the Taurus personality is prone to possessiveness. Because of this you must make sure that your ex’s interest is sincere and less selfish. Is your potential partner able to put your needs first? Are they trying to control who you spend time with? These questions will help you determine whether or not this is an investment or a waste of time.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Inherent nervousness can be channeled for positive change in the Gemini’s life, or it can keep them from making a stand. You need someone who knows you’re worth the risk, so don’t settle if your ex offers anything less. Is your Gemini love interest prone to “on again off again” relationships? Steer clear if so. Is the courtship marked by consistency and confidence? If so, take the chance!

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)


Because of their mind boggling ability to persuade others, you’ll be tempted to jump back into your ex’s arms. But here you really have to evaluate whether or not you and your last really make sense together. Do you really work well together? Do you two really have the same end goals? Or, is this a sad case of misplaced loyalty?

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Sometimes Leos come off as, or simply are, arrogant. When the Leo comes back for you with sincere humility and willingness to admit wrongdoing, know that it takes all of their courage to push their pride into submission. And, if you are still in love, give it another go with that knight of a Leo.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Working hard is a part of Virgo identity and lifestyle. But, their work-life imbalance likely played a role in your first breakup. Before you choose them again, make sure that your ex is committed to caring for you, so that you don’t wind up neglected... again. It’s only worth a second try if they can keep their compulsion to check work emails at bay while out on a date with you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Since Libras are usually so fair minded, sometimes we forget their paradoxical tendency to hold a grudge. True forgiveness needs to be in the Libra’s heart for you two to successfully rebuild. You might want each other back right now, but both of you will regret round two if in your first fight the past is thrown in your face.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Be careful with this stinger... Scorpios are jealous by nature, and might just want you back because someone else has caught your gaze. If your Scorpio suitor is able to be transparent about their feelings though, and isn’t hiding behind their exoskeleton, then they deserve a chance!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Optimism is notable and usually positive characteristic of the Sagittarius, but you need your significant other to approach your relationship, its problems, and the resolutions for those problems realistically. Only if your ex comes back around with a plan to tackle what broke you up in the first place, not just desire, should you move forward with them.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Despite their many wonderful traits, Capricorns can be insufferably condescending—because of course they’re always right. Your ex shouldn’t be coming around telling you about your side of the breakup experience. Instead, they should be returning with openness to listen and empathy for your experiences. If they can provide that, it’s worth another shot.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Regardless of who initiated the breakup, level of commitment was likely part of the problem with your Aquarius sweetheart. If they come back around with a genuine demonstration of their dedication, for instance, proving they’ve found a therapist or a reasonable compromise for a long-standing problem, they’re truly yours this time.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Fanciful Pisces tend to fall in love with love. Take some time to evaluate whether your ex wants you or the honeymoon back. Are you two able to have grounded conversations about the future, both of your flaws, and how to manage in the moment? Or is your entire relationship going to be lovemaking and takeout until the next fallout? Pay attention to this and the answer will write itself out in front of you.
