Getting over a breakup is never easy, especially when that person happened to be your soulmate, or so you thought.

You probably thought that he was your whole future; he understood all of your needs and you felt a connection with him like no other.

But things changed and the love you shared spiraled out of control. What you thought you had wasn't real, and now you're left with the pieces you used to call your heart to try and put yourself back together again. 


Some soulmate relationships appear legit but when they become unhealthy it's plain to see you're in a karmic union instead.

Karmic relationships are similar to soulmates in that there's a connection taking place, but instead, the person teaches you a lesson, and it's painfully clear when it's time to move on.

Here is how each zodiac sign should heal after a fake soulmate breaks their heart.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, in order to heal after it seems like your fake soulmate ripped your heart out, you must throw yourself into some sort of busywork. Whether it may be taking on a new leadership position at work or picking up more shifts, you need to keep yourself occupied.

Your mind tends to wander and assume the worst when it has time to itself, so keep your brain focused on the important things in life – family, friends, and the newest season of The Bachelor. As a young fire sign, you can really explode with rage if that negative energy isn't channeled somewhere else.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, your pretend soulmate left you and now the only thing you can think of is that leftover pizza in the fridge. You may think in order to heal from a breakup, you must devour all of the junk food in your apartment.

Actually, the best thing you can do is push the sweets aside and head to the gym. Not only will exercise invigorate you, but it will also help you focus all of that sad girl energy into your workout routine.

You'll run faster and sweat more, making the whole experience worthwhile. Once you are done with that sweat session, then treat yourself with a cookie – or twelve. If your soulmate was really your soulmate, he would have encouraged that sweet tooth of yours.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, it may seem to others that breaking up with your soulmate was a breeze. You go out and flirt with a bunch of new potential mates – much cuter than the last, right?

While it may seem like jumping in bed with someone else is the answer to all of your heartbreak questions, the best way to heal is to process the breakup on your own.

Sure, it can be fun to have a new fling every now and then, but you will never be able to open your heart to someone new if you never grieve your past love – especially your soulmate.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, your soulmate was also probably your best friend. The best way to heal that wound is to just cry it out. Let those tears flow, Cancer. You can not pretend like everything is fine – it is simply not in your nature.

Call over a few close friends and allow yourself to sob in their arms, Before you know it, you'll be watching corny romance movies and questioning whether or not your soulmate was really even the one.

If he didn't build you a house with a wraparound porch as Noah did for Allie, he probably wasn't in your future.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, nothing says my soulmate left me and now I don't know how to act better than some retail therapy. You aren't one to pout over some guy; you know you are your own soulmate and to heck with any guy who thinks he is above you.


To heal, go out and buy the hottest dress you can find. Your fake soulmate can eat their soul out because nobody can connect with you once you've done a little TLC at your local mall.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, you tend to lean towards the facts when things get hard. In order to heal, you end up researching all about soulmates and whether or not they even exist in the first place.

Even if an article says soulmates are real, you'll scour the web to find at least one author who encourages your anger towards love.

Once you start traveling down your research bender, nobody can stop you. After a few days, your friends might have to encourage you to put down the books (and maybe shower).

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, what better way to express your feelings than writing them all down on paper? The person you thought was your soulmate left you and the only emotion you feel is regret.

You feel regret for not expressing your feelings sooner. In order to heal, write down everything you are feeling. Maybe you will write down a memory you shared with your ex, or maybe you will write about all of the horrible things he did.

Regardless of what you jot down, try and let it be a form of therapy. You don't have to send him any of these personal notes, but if you think it'll give you closure, go for it.

Scorpio, nothing says revenge like a woman scorned. Your so-called soulmate turned out to be a dull mate, and now you are left with all of the memories. The best way for you to heal, Scorpio, is to set fire to every shirt, teddy bear, and gifts he ever gave you.

Maybe there are a few love letters left lying around your place – throw them in a fire and then go roast some s' mores.

The last thing you need is to be reminded of what could have been, especially when that could have been happened to be someone you considered a soulmate.
