(March 21st to April 19th)

A heartbroken Aries never stops moving, because they want to do whatever they can to keep the pain at bay.


(April 20th to May 21st)

A heartbroken Taurus’s biggest breakup struggle is with their newfound alone time, because the thing they loved most about their relationship was the companionship.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

A heartbroken Gemini puts on a brave face to everyone they see, but internally, they feel like they’re going to collapse.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

A heartbroken Cancer doesn’t apologize for their feelings – they just allow themselves to feel sad in order to heal in a healthy way.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

A heartbroken Leo does the opposite of wallowing – they work their ass off at their job, say ‘yes’ to every social invitation they receive, and keep their calendar booked practically every single night.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

A heartbroken Virgo blames themselves, and it takes a lot of overthinking and a lot of helpful talks with friends or family before they start to be easier on themselves and understand that breakups just happen.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

A heartbroken Libra is lost – being alone doesn’t make them feel better and being with friends doesn’t make them feel better, so usually they just do a lot of introspective thinking before they slowly transition back into their lively self.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

A heartbroken Scorpio is not used to being the heartbroken one, so they tend to make a lot of rash decisions (big purchases, gambling, drinking, partying, last-minute trips, etc) before they wake up and get themselves back on track again.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

A heartbroken Sagittarius initially thinks the breakup will be easier than it turns out to be, and after they realize how sad they are, they make a large effort to be gentle with themselves and take helpful steps (like visits to friends, therapy, etc) to help them heal.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

A heartbroken Capricorn admits their own sadness and disappointment to themselves, and once that’s ‘done’ they make moves to get over their relationship slowly but surely.


(January 21st to February 18th)

A heartbroken Aquarius ignores their shattered heart for a while, and once it can no longer be pushed aside, they try to channel it into other parts of their lives – art, their job, etc.


(February 19th to March 20th)

A heartbroken Pisces spends most of their free time with loved ones – talking through their feelings, acknowledging their sadness, and putting all energy towards relieving the pain in a nourishing way. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
