Why It's Time To Finally End Your Relationship, By Zodiac Sign

Letting go of someone is never easy to do.

How To Know When It's Time To End Things, Per Astrology pexels

As a single, and fairly clear minded person when it comes to love, I look at many of the relationships around me and think that the people in them deserve so much more.

People settle far too quickly for someone they love who doesn't treat them well and it shows.

They end up unhappy, lonely, and 20 years down the line they have a divorce, a mortgage, a child support payment and they're still unhappy. It's painful to watch.

Sometimes I just want to shake people and ask them what they see in their SO. 

And of course, everyone goes through tough patches. Clearly, I don't have all the answers, as a single person. But I do think there are many deal breakers that people put up with simply because they don't want to end up the old maid, or the cat lady. (I'm not hating on cat ladies, I have big dreams of becoming one.)

My point is that there are things that conflict so much with a person's nature that they should be considered as much a deal breaker as anything else is. 


Here all the reasons why each sign should finally cut things off with their significant other.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You’re feeling restless. You start to look around and wonder if there’s something better out there for you. You may even realize that you feel competitive towards your SO or other potential partners.

Essentially, you’re feeling tired of what you have, and that is leading you to start to stray before you’ve actually cut things off. 

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Your partner is constantly jealous of everything you’re doing. Things are going well for you recently, and instead of cheering you on, your partner resents it. It's taking a toll on you both, competing is just frankly exhausting.


Your partner should be someone who can cheer for you no matter what. It's okay to be jealous and frustrated, but it's not okay to punish someone for doing life well.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You’re constantly fighting. You can feel yourself sliding into this personality where you’re always angry, always feeling upset. You pick fights all the time, which usually means you’ve stopped caring about how the other person feels as much as you used to. This kind of constant pain is causing rifts in your relationship. 

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

They tell you you're 'too emotional.' This is one of my biggest pet peeves. Anyone who says you're too emotional should automatically be dumped. For a Cancer, this is especially true, because Cancers have such strong emotions.


If someone can't take the time to listen to how you feel, they honestly aren't worth your time. It sucks to have to draw the line like that, but it's important because you need someone who can relate to you, hear you out, and work through things together.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You feel the need to constantly take control of the other person and the relationship. You’re trying to fix their problems and start to slide into this mentality where you see them as a problem you need to fix.

They aren’t a problem, and you aren’t a solution. You need to be in a give and take partnership, you can’t be the only one working towards new goals. 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If your SO is constantly criticizing you and tearing you down, they're a goner. Everyone needs someone who will take the time to build them up, cheer them on, and gas them up. A Virgo doesn't need any more criticism than they give themselves.


They need support. They need someone who will tell them when they're working too hard, someone who will help them in tough times, and encourage them when they need it. Period.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Your SO is explosive, reacting first with anger and frustration at every occasion. You, as a Libra, need patience and kindness. You hate confrontation and avoid it like the plague.

You need someone who will talk to you first, instead of reacting so harshly. This is a sign that they don't respect you or your needs, and it's insulting and disrespectful.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If you’ve completely lost faith and trust in your partner, it’s time to leave. It’s one thing to be afraid of being hurt, but if all you see with your SO is constant betrayal, you’ve in the wrong relationship.


Your nature may be to be doubtful and suspicious, so you need someone you can trust, someone who will make you feel like you can sit back and relax. 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Your SO is trying to hold you back from doing something that really matters to you: a new job offer, a big promotion, a wonderful trip opportunity. This moment is one that is very telling in regards to how your SO views you.

They're treating you like a property instead of a person, and your freedom is something that really matters to you. You need your freedom to flourish. If your SO can't flourish with you, kick em to the curb.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Your SO doesn’t share your family values. They don’t care about marriage, don’t want kids, don’t care about the commitment they made.


This is a bad sign for the rest of your lives, especially because these values are so close to your heart. It’s more than just a passing issue that can be negotiated, and it’s more than okay to break things off because your partner won’t fill those needs.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

If your SO has been clingy beyond what you can handle, it’s time to let go. You need someone who understands your logical and dedicated personality, someone who understands your love language.

If your SO is constantly jumping on you to express your emotions, it puts unnecessary stress on your relationship, and will lead to a breakdown anyway. It’s only a matter of time. 


PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

If you constantly feel the need to paint yourself as a victim to get your SO’s attention, it’s already over. You love the idea of romance: sweeping gestures and sweet adoration.

This isn’t that. Instead, your partner doesn’t give you any attention. This isn’t the great love you dreamt of. And honestly, you deserve better.
