This Is The Best Way To Break Up According To Your Zodiac Sign

If you’ve ever wondered why your ex broke up via text (jerk!), then maybe his zodiac sign has something to do with it. While not everyone believes in astrology and it can’t explain everything that happens in life, here’s how the 12 signs go about their ideal breakup.

  1. Aries breaks up during a fight. Aries can be quite spontaneous. If they even get an inkling of an impulse to end things, they will act without thinking about it. Don’t be surprised if this spontaneous soul breaks up with you in the middle of a heated fight, leaving your head spinning.
  2. Taurus has checked out months ago. Yikes. Taurus is the over-thinker of all the zodiac signs. Chances are your Taurus partner has been mulling over breaking up with you for ages, which is probably why they seem so calm and collected when they drop the bomb.
  3. Gemini keeps you on your toes. Gemini will tell you they want to end things only to end up in your bed later that night. They can’t seem to make up their mind about what they want, which means you can expect a back-and-forth breakup that will leave you running for the hills by the end of it because it’s so frustrating.
  4. Cancer will break up after seeing a therapist. Cancer is not the type of sign to check out on you. This sign is devoted and loyal and feels things deeply, so he or she is going to try to make things work. After they’ve tried everything to get your relationship back on track, even organizing couples therapy, they’ll tell you it’s over if they’ve reached their wit’s end.
  5. Leo will break up with you in public. Leo is all about drama, so don’t be surprised if your Leo love ends things on the dance floor or in the middle of a restaurant while other people are trying to enjoy their dinner in peace. Worst-case scenario: they’ll dramatically end things via text. Gasp.
  6. Virgo will write you a list. You’re likely to receive closure from your Virgo partner (thank goodness), but you might get too much. They’ll write you lists about why your relationship should end and they’ll be filled with logic instead of emotion. That might not actually make you feel better!
  7. Libra will push you away. Libra will do anything to avoid breaking up with you, so they’ll find clever ways to make you do the dirty work. They want you to be the one to end things, which sucks because you just feel manipulated by the end of it.
  8. Scorpio will hit breaking point. Even if Scorpio has been toying with the idea of breaking up, they’ll remain committed and loyal until something really bad happens, like a major betrayal. Then all hell will break loose and they’ll finally walk away, even if they’re usually known for hating change.
  9. Sagittarius can make things nasty. Sagittarius can be a bit insensitive at times, so if they want to check out of the relationship, they might end up making you out to be the bad guy. Don’t be surprised if they turn the tables on you. They can be quite intense and even unfair without really thinking about the consequences. After a few days, they might try to come back with their best charming act on display.
  10. Capricorn will want a second chance. Capricorn is one of the most loyal zodiac signs. They’ll fight for what they love to the bitter end and pull out all the stops. Make sure you’re sure about ending things and walking away for good because Capricorn might suggest a second chance that could throw you off and make you doubt your decision.
  11. Aquarius tries to be logical about it. The Aquarius in your life might make you wonder if they really loved you because they can be so detached during a breakup. But this is just because they’re protecting their heart. They want to end things in a rational way that gives the breakup meaning and a valid reason, and they want to hold onto that reason so they don’t feel so crushed.
  12. Pisces will go AWOL. While he or she might not be a ghoster, a Pisces partner will slowly move out of the relationship instead of ending it in one dramatic action. Yyou might find that your Pisces will seem to check out during conversations and not be as available as they used to be. Those are signs a breakup’s coming!
