Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You’re always interested in people who are off-limits, because you find it sexy to be naughty. Of course, all of the time you spend thinking about a certain someone doesn’t necessarily mean you actually want to be with them. You just want one crazy night with them. Or you want to harmlessly fantasize about what it would be like if you were with them. One thing is for sure, daydreaming about them doesn’t mean you’re in love. Far from it.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You’re building them up in your mind. You’re acting like they were the greatest thing that ever happened to you, even though they’ve caused you a lot of pain. You need to take a step back and see them for what they really are. They aren’t some godlike creature that’s worthy of all of your love and affection. They’re just another flawed human that doesn’t realize how special you are. You can do better. You will do better.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

You’re still thinking about them, because you know you could get them back. You’re not sure if you should actually go for it, but if you wanted to, you just know you could do it. That’s why you’ve been struggling to decide if you should shoot them a text or if you should delete their number and officially leave them in the past. It’s a big decision, so you’ve been trying to think it through–maybe for a little too long.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You’ve spent so much time on them. You don’t want everything that happened between the two of you to be a waste. You’d rather find a way to reconcile with them. Leaving them behind when you have so much history just doesn’t feel right. Besides, you’ve reached a point in your life where you want to settle down. You’d rather make up with them and find a cozy apartment together than jump back into the dating pool and sleep with strangers for years.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You’re only thinking about them, because they aren’t with you. Why the hell not? You’re sexy. You’re smart. You’re flirty. You’re fun. You don’t mean to sound cocky, but you can’t figure out what you did wrong. You’ve become obsessed with the thought of them, because they’ve brought out insecurities you didn’t even know you had, and you hate them for it.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You’re still thinking about them, because you thought you were in love with them. It’s as simple as that. Of course, you thought that they were in love with you, too. You don’t understand how everything fell apart when your feelings for them were so strong. That’s why, half of the time when you think of them, you end up with watery eyes. The other half of the time, you actually smile, because they truly did make you happy once upon a time.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

They’re still in the back of your mind, because you haven’t been dealing with your feelings properly. Instead of sitting down and letting yourself cry over what happened, you grab a bottle of whiskey or a box of Cheetos to help you forget your problems. You’re engaging in self-destructive behaviors instead of dealing with the issue at hand. But you can’t keep avoiding your feelings forever. Eventually, you’re going to have to find closure to get them out of your mind for good.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

It’s not that the person stuck in your mind is all that great. You just haven’t met anyone else after them. It makes sense: There’s no one else to occupy your thoughts, so your mind goes back to the last person you had a good time with. It’s not a big deal. At least, that’s what you tell yourself in order to get through the day. Admitting you still have strong feelings for them isn’t something you’re ready to do, even if it is the reality of the situation.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

Honestly, you hate dating. It takes way too long to find someone worth your time, and then you have to go through the stress of making small talk and seducing them and convincing them to sleep with you. You just want to skip past those beginning parts of a relationship. That’s why you’d rather get back together with someone you have history with. It would be easier that way. You would get to fast-forward through the awkward bits and dive straight into the real thing.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

You never open yourself up, because you know that it’s going to lead to heartbreak. But this time, you actually did let someone in, and you actually did get your heart broken. Despite all the bullshit they put you through, it’s hard for you to let them go, because you gave them pieces of yourself that you’ve never given to anyone else before. You keep thinking about them, because you wish things would’ve ended differently. Because you don’t want to open yourself up to anyone else ever again.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

Unfortunately, creative minds like you have a hard time letting go of past loves. After all, you need material for your stories and songs and paintings. You’ve been using your heartbreak in order to fuel your creativity, and it’s been working like a charm. That’s why you have to relive the pain that they put you through on a daily basis. If you want to be successful with your art, then you can never let yourself forget them.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

To put it simply, you miss them. They weren’t just someone for you to fantasize about while you masturbated. They were your friend. They were someone you thought you could count on. Now that they’re gone, everything is different. It’s hard to get over them, because they were such a big part of your life. Without them, you don’t know what to do. Everything has changed. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
