6 Vindictive Zodiac Signs Who Get Revenge On Their Ex, According To Astrology

Is revenge really the best way to handle feelings of hurt and anger? For some vindictive zodiac signs, it’s the only way, especially when those painful feelings come from something that an ex did.

When our partners cheat on us, betray us, or leave us without provocation, it can lead to some very intense and negative feelings. And the only way some people can deal with those feelings is by planning their revenge.

If we use astrology as a guide, there are some zodiac signs who refuse to let their ex get away with hurting them. And they’ll get revenge, even if it takes years.

Not everybody is able to let their pain go, and if they internalize it, it will only grow worse. Those who seek revenge on ex will put a lot of energy and focus on coming up with the best plan, making sure that plan is foolproof, and carrying it out with minimal collateral damage.

Sometimes the only way to heal is by getting revenge, or so they want to believe. The truth is, revenge is rarely satisfying or healing. It tends to cause more pain, destroy relationships, and nobody is left better than when they started out.

There are so many repercussions to exacting revenge that it’s important to ask yourself if it’s necessary. Maybe looking for alternative methods can help you to feel better.

1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You didn't think for one moment that Scorpio would let their ex get away with hurting them, did you? The two worst things you can do to a Scorpio are to betray or lie to them, and when either of those two things happens, you can be sure Scorpio will be out for revenge.

It won't happen right away as they prefer attacking when their ex has a false sense of security, but it will happen. Scorpios can be patient and focused, and when their revenge happens, it will be perfect in its own devious way.

2. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is a fire sign and they have a wicked temper, so if they get angry enough at their ex, there's going to be revenge served nice and cold. The good thing about Aries' brand of revenge is that it won't physically harm their ex, but will do its damage more psychologically.

Aries is more likely to put their ex on blast and ruin their reputation on social media, or they may just cancel them and make it difficult to get back into anybody's good books.

3. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

When Aquarius suffers a bad breakup, revenge will be a definite option. They don't enjoy emotional displays so they're not going to have a breakdown in public when giving back the ring or all the gifts their ex gave them.

Aquarius will appear to be doing fine, so when they go after revenge it will be unexpected and creative. They might do something that will haunt their ex for a long time, like making them distrust their friends or get kicked out of their hiking group.

4. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus had to go through a lot of work on themselves before they allowed their ex into their heart, so to have all that be for nothing won't go over well. Their kind of revenge is to go on a campaign to get their ex back, make their ex fall in love with them all over again, and then dump them.

The goal is to cause way more pain for the ex. It's a good thing Taurus is patient and determined because getting their ex back may take a very long time, but it's worth it to them.

Virgos are extremely intelligent, and if they want revenge, they're going to figure out the perfect way for their ex. It may be as simple as the old saying, "Living well is the best revenge."

Virgo may act as if their ex did them a favor by breaking up with them, and may have a new better looking and smarter partner before their ex has had time to pick up their stuff. Virgo will be so unemotional and removed that their ex will question if this zodiac sign ever had feelings for them.

6. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

When Capricorn wants revenge against an ex, they're going to involve more people. It's likely that Capricorn developed bonds with their ex's friends and family, so they are going to spill all the tea on their ex's bad behavior, ill-treatment, and every stupid mistake they made.

They will do this without looking like a victim or even as vengeful, and their motives will appear to be one of healing for everyone.
