Relationships are hard.

Jumping back into the dating scene when you've been burned by love isn't easy either, and some zodiac signs choose not to get involved for a long time after a breakup.

Instead they jump back into the single life and wait for it to happen organically, not worrying about who will fill the voice in their hearts.

Perhaps you're one of those zodiac signs who got hurt after falling in love. You planted your feet into a relationship and planned your life around your partner. You watered the relationship, weeded the problems, let the other person grow in your heart until their blood ran through yours with roots like veins.

Love like that becomes so deeply apart of who you are that without it you are uprooted, without any soil holding you in place. Who are you when love leaves your life? Some people can move on very quickly. They can put their past relationships behind them and go full throttle into the future.

Others need more time. You need time to mourn. It sounds silly to say that you mourn a concept as you would a life, but you do. You need to mourn the loss of your future. The loss of who you thought you would be. Who you thought your children would be.

You need time to rediscover who you are. You know who you were before your relationship. You know who you were during. But after you are different. You learned somethings; you were hurt. You can’t just revert back to who you were as if nothing happened to you.

Something major happened to you. You loved someone. Fully loved another human being. Then you lost them. Fully lost them.

Sometimes you just need time, and rediscovering who you are as a single person, learning how to be free and to trust again is one of the best ways to find happiness again.

Below is a list of zodiac signs that may need more time after heartbreak, and who learn to love their singleness as they heal from the pain and loss of a breakup.

1. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)


Taurus, you love romance. You love throwing youself into a relationship and showering the ones you love with affection and attention. When a your relationship ends, you really struggle. One thing that is especially hard for your zodiac sign is to deal with sudden change.

When something as important as your love life dramatically changes, this can process like a trauma to you. You are going to want time to process. As a Taurus, you are very practical and stable so you will get back out there but you are going to need more time as a single person and learn to love yourself again.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)


As an Aquarius, you may need more time after a heartbreak because you are not willing to give up what you had. You are ruthlessly optimistic and love to fight for a cause. When you get dumped, you feel like you still have a chance to get back in there.

You won’t give up. Having said this, you are generally a very deep-thinking independent thinker. You may need time after a relationship just to assess who you are and enjoy your time alone.

3. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)


Capricorn, you are very family oriented. In fact, all you want is to be surrounded by family. The end of a relationship feels like the loss of dream. You need time to mourn who you thought you were going to be and what you thought your life was going to be like.

Capricorns naturally expect the worst and when you go through a heartbreak, that instinct increases tenfold. You will be assuming every potential relationship is over before the first date is halfway through. So you just need a little time. Afterward, you will be okay.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


When you lose your love, you turn your heartbreak into analysis. You methodically go over and over what you did wrong, and what you could have done differently. You need time after a breakup to devote to studying your own missteps.

You are overcritical of yourself and of your ex-partner. You are also full of worry. If you begin dating too soon, you will be fraught with the idea that every potential relationship is going to end in heartbreak.

Mostly, however, you are very loyal. You will feel that you owe your ex-partner the respect of time. You don’t want to move on too quickly for fear of hurting the person you once loved.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)


Gemini, you naturally sit in a nervous state. After a heartbreak, that nervousness wildly increases. You worry about everything. You become very self-conscious. You second guess everything you do and say. You are also very inconsistent.

You want to be loved, but you don’t want to have to go out and love someone. Mostly, as a Gemini, you hate repetition. You are afraid of making the same mistakes over and over again, so you don’t go out and try. You need time to assess who you are and what you want. You need time to prepare for stability, and the best way to do that is to wait to date again. 


6. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)


You are very emotional. When going through a breakup, you take time to methodically feel every ounce of sadness and heartbreak you can possibly feel. You get very attached to your significant other and can’t handle it when you lose them.

You are already very sensitive, so when pushed into emotional turmoil it will take you longer to come out of it. You need to take more time then anyone else being single again, because you feel everything so deeply.
