How to End A Relationship With Each Zodiac Sign
According to Astrologers, each Zodiac Sign Reacts Different To a Break Up
Everyone handles breakups differently. But there might be a pattern among the Zodac Signs, acording to some Astrologers. Whether you’re the type to do it in a crowded restaurant (to avoid a scene, of course), or you prefer to go the ghosting route (harsh), there are plenty of ways to end things with your significant other.
But if you’re looking for the best way to let them down easily, you could always turn to the stars for guidance. According to celebrity astrologer and host of the Allegedly Astrology Podcast, Dana DeFranco, and professional astrologer and host of the Love & Stardust Podcast, KJ Atlas, the way people react to getting the bad news could be influenced by their horoscope. Keep reading for expert advice on how to break up with your partner, based on their zodiac sign. No ghosting allowed!
If you’re not feeling it, you need to be upfront with your Aries partner. To them, if you’re not all the way in, you might as well be out. “Be direct and efficient in your breakup style, even if things get heated,” advises Atlas. “Let them react in their own way, but be prepared that they might move on faster than you expect,” she says.
Taurus rarely finds themselves in a casual relationship, so if you’re breaking up with them, chances are you are at least exclusive. Since maintaining security is this sign’s primary function, it will ease the heartache to let them know you still care about them and will be there if they ever need help. “While they are unlikely to cash in on this offer, it will lower their inherent defenses that arise whenever they anticipate betrayal,” DeFranco explains. She says to “be firm but gentle.”
Dumping a Gemini is tricky because it’s not unlikely for them to stay friends with their exes. “As a sign ruled by the planet of communication, Mercury, Gemini will need you to spell out your grievances and be open to having a conversation about them,” says Atlas. Make sure to let them know what your boundaries are moving forward with regards to maintaining contact.
Cancers are softies with a hard outer shell, so while they might try to act tough about a breakup, they’re likely struggling inside. “If you’ve been with them for a long time, they probably think of you as family, which could make the adjustment much harder,” explains Atlas. If you can, try to maintain some normalcy during the breakup and let them know you can still be there for them once you’ve had a chance to heal.
Even if it’s not true, breaking up with a Leo is definitely when you want to use the “it’s not you, it’s me” line. “Getting dumped is a massive blow to Leo’s ego and an even bigger blow to their heart,” explains DeFranco. “For this reason, it’s best to bury the lead by apologizing for hurting them before telling them you will be breaking up because it’s just not the right match,” she advises.
Virgo internalizes criticism harder than any other sign, so getting dumped is likely to trigger their fears of not being good enough to earn love. “For a Virgo, breaking up can feel like watching a fairytale backward,” says DeFranco. But playing to their analytical tendencies can soften the blow.
Libra understands themselves through their relationships with others, so letting them know that you also saw and loved them for who they are will make them feel seen. “When a Libra is dumped, they may feel an acute sense of rejection of their
Scorpio is among the hardest signs to break up with because of the variability in their personality. If something has been “off” in your relationship, your Scorpio lover has probably sensed it for some time. Still, it doesn’t make the ending hurt less. “A Scorpio might react to the pain of a breakup a bit ruthlessly,” warns Atlas. “Try to be compassionate and sensitive to their feelings, even if their first reaction is anger,” she advises.
Breaking up with a Sagittarius can feel awkward, especially if you waited for what felt like forever for them to commit. However, this passionate fire sign would always rather you be blunt and honest than beat around the bush. “The faster you can drop the bomb, the better,” Atlas says. “Let them know why you’re ending it, but don’t attack their character—they’ll probably outwit you there,” she adds.
Breaking up with a Capricorn might feel a lot like resigning from a job. “You need to calmly and with great detail, if possible, [tell them] why they are no longer a fixture in your five-year plan and beyond,” says DeFranco. They will be cordial and stoic as they conduct your exit interview, but anyone who’s ever dated a Capricorn knows they have a secret silly side and a huge appetite for TLC. “No matter how strong and expressionless they may seem, remember to be as tender and caring as possible during this process,” DeFranco adds.
Aquarius is notorious for being aloof, so breaking up with them can almost feel too easy. Quick, clear, and honest is the best approach. “They will appreciate a clean break, but if you have time to chat, take the opportunity to remind them of how special you think they are and how much you appreciate their quirks,” says DeFranco. They tend to run on self-validation, but it’s especially meaningful when another person acknowledges their individuality.
Dating a Pisces is a dream come true, which is what makes breaking up with them such a nightmare. Between tears, pleading, or the worst (the cold shoulder), it’s best to keep things simple and sweet. “Pisces is sensitive, and although they have rightfully earned their reputation for playing the victim, it’s also likely that they sacrificed their own needs and desires for you at one point or another, whether you know it or not,” DeFranco says. Let them know how your relationship opened your mind and helped you develop spiritually. And more important than anything, resist criticizing them.
