5 Zodiac Signs Who Always Take Their Exes Back, According To Astrology

Breakups are never easy or uncomplicated. But when it comes to the aftermath, do you stay friends, do you remove them entirely from your life, or do you take your ex back and start the relationship up to all over again?

The zodiac signs who always take their exes back have their reasons for doing so, but the results are always the same.

When we take someone back, we’re giving them a second chance to do right by us, and we’re trusting that they've grown from whatever mistakes were made. But it’s sometimes naïve to take someone back, especially if they don't feel bad about what they did or aren't planning to try harder.

Creating a pattern of always taking your exes back may not be the healthiest thing. If they know you'll forgive someone everytime they mess up, they won't try to do better. Taking someone back can be seen as a reward for bad behavior!

There are times when it’s reasonable to take someone back — maybe the breakup was rash and hadn’t been thought out; maybe the timing was off with the relationship. But not every breakup deserves another look. And these zodiac signs in astrology won't learn their lesson.

1. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus doesn't get into relationships on a whim. While they're in a relationship, they're fully invested. If their relationship was great, there's no reason in their mind that it wouldn't be better the second time around.

It might be a lot easier the second time when both partners know what to expect. There's no reason for Taurus not to give their ex a second chance, and if it doesn't work out, Taurus knows for sure.

2. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

When Cancer falls in love, it's forever. If Cancer and their partner break up, there's always a part of their heart that belongs to their ex. The chances that they will get back together with their ex are high, especially if everyone this zodiac sign talks to thinks it's a good idea.

It's extremely difficult for them to remove all traces of the love they felt for somebody, and much easier to just pick up the relationship as if no time has passed.

3. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are known for always giving second chances, and it's especially true when it's their ex. Pisces are nostalgic and tend to look back on their past relationships in the most positive way. In almost every one of their past relationships, Pisces views it as having a lot of potential.

The love and affection are already there, which will help in re-building trust and commitment. In Pisces' mind, there's no reason not to build on that past relationship.

4. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras always take their exes back because they're extremely kindhearted and want to believe there have been positive changes. When the breakup happened, it gave Libra perspective and helped them to see what worked in the relationship and what didn't.

If their ex comes back and asks for a second chance, Libra wants to believe they have the best intentions, and not giving them a chance would be unfair. Libras can be pushovers when it comes to their emotions.

5. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos learn from their mistakes, and they know that if the timing isn't right or the partners aren't in a good place, a relationship is going to fail. They would love the chance to have a do-over with a relationship and do it better the second time around.

Virgos are confident that they're too smart to get played, and will recognize the first sign of their ex being shady. But initially, Virgo will give their ex the benefit of the doubt.
