(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. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
