This Is How You Break Up, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

God & Man

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

You breakup with your significant other right before you have some grand adventure planned. You have a girl’s trip to Vegas this weekend for your best friend’s birthday, and you see it as an opportunity to end the relationship you’ve been wanting to end but just haven’t gotten around to yet. You at least give them the courtesy of doing it in person.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

You breakup with your significant other when they continue to point out the things you do wrong that you can’t (or won’t) own up to. You’re stubborn to a fault, and you like the way you do things, so when someone points out the things you do that are damaging to your relationship, you default to defense mode.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You breakup with your significant other when you think you want something, or someone else. You get bored of being with the same person because you’re not with the right person, so you leave them, but you always do the breaking up in a form of honest communication. You hate passive aggressive breakups, and you tell your partner the truth as to why you think the relationship needs to end.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You HATE breaking up with people. You’re extremely empathetic, and when you breakup with someone, it’s kind of like you’re breaking up with yourself. You feel the same hurt that you’re inflicting, and it rips your heart to shreds.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You breakup with your significant other when they don’t give you the independence you need to feel like yourself. You have a hard time accepting help from others, so when your partner tries to do things for you, you’d rather just do them yourself, and when they won’t let you do it yourself, you start thinking it’s time to call it quits. In your opinion you end the relationship respectfully, but your partner usually takes it personally because you tend to be a little selfish about it.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You breakup with your significant other when you take a bump in the road and turn it into a mountain. You inspect your relationship way too closely, and not everything needs to be inspected. There will be arguments and bad days, but they don’t mean more than you think they do. An argument doesn’t have to turn into a breakup, and most arguments are not worth over-thinking.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You breakup with your significant other in the least confrontational way possible. You do it strategically when you know they can’t flip out or over react, like when you go over your sister’s house for dinner, or when you’re in a movie theatre or book store. You want to be fair and you want to keep the peace, and you’re terrified of making anyone cry or yell. You usually always ask if you can still be friends.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You conduct breakups with pure honesty, even if it’s more brutal than pure. You breakup with your significant other when they distract you from what you really want. If they’re not adding anything to your life, you don’t feel the need to keep them around.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

You breakup with your significant other when you decide to live in Ecuador for 6 months. You usually put the ball in their court so you don’t completely break up with them, but you share your adventurous plans, and give them the option of deciding how the relationship will continue with those plans in mind.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

You breakup with your significant other when they aren’t as serious about the relationship as you are. You don’t mess around. You have benchmark ages set in place for certain milestones of your life, and if your partner isn’t willing to accommodate that timeline, you’ll let them know you’re ending the relationship for that reason.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

You breakup in the least emotional way possible. Feelings and stuff freak you out, so you like to keep your breakups based on the facts. You’re not ending the relationship because of how you feel, but because of the people you both become when you’re together.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

You secretly enjoy breakups because they usually result in some epic creative-expression. Whether it’s poetry, song-writing, or sketches, your breakups bring out feelings you didn’t know you had, and that works as inspiration for your art. Breakups become your muse. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
