Recognize Your Ex: The 12 Zodiac Signs After a Relationship

Recognize Your Ex: The 12 Zodiac Signs After a Relationship

Astrology can bring many insights about your current relationship, but did you know the stars can also tell you some interesting things about your ex? Sometimes your ex is still present in your life, or they might be on the sidelines. We zoom in on those types.

How do you recognize the behavior of the twelve Zodiac Signs in their role as an ex-lover? Writer Gary Goldschneider, known for his many books on astrology, tells us more about each sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

A relationship with Aries often ends with much fanfare. Especially when Aries has a reason to be angry about (or so he or she thinks), they will be angry for a long period of time. Do you want to make something of this connection? Make it right. Because eventually, Aries will be forgiving.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)

Whatever happens, a Taurus never runs away from his or her responsibilities. Money issues and agreements about the children will never cause much trouble. Taurus stays reliable, but the door to their heart can close fast and easy.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

When a relationship or marriage feels like a too-tight fit, breaking up the relationship can provide more space and air, which can cause a surprising turn. Instead of running like the wind, Gemini will knock on your door and show him or herself as a committed and even a devoted friend.

Cancer (June 22 – Juli 22)

When Cancer gets rejected, there is big trouble. This hurts these types of people so intensely they can have feelings of anger and jealousy towards their ex-partner for years. When they end the relationship themselves, there is no problem and this might even give them a feeling of strength.

Leo (July 23 – August 23)

If you treat a Leo with subtlety and respect, ending the relationship can be harmonious and friendship could be a good possibility. When sarcasm and negativity enter the stage, Leo will be very on edge and will do whatever necessary to keep his or her feeling of self-respect intact.

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Virgos would rather end something swiftly and move on then sticking to their ex-partner. When this is necessary like when there are children involved, they will deal with everything neatly and honor the agreements. Instantly a lasting emotional distance will arise.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

After a relationship, a Libra will stay charming and friendly. So, when a partner keeps getting in touch, they can be mesmerized again by this type. When a Libra is rejected or dumped, he or she will tag the relationship as a meaningless part of their (love)life.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Rejecting a Scorpio may come back later to bite you in the ass. These people will do anything to make you feel how much you have hurt them. Not by causing drama and sentiment, but by being recalcitrant and taking emotional revenge. Be mindful of this and finish everything neatly.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Polite, calm, and friendly; Sagittarius-partners try their best to make the ending of a relationship run smoothly, no matter the situation. They do not shy away from discussions or fights, but when this is the case they will choose the road with the nicest view of the future.

Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)

Capricorn-exes can show true interest in their ex-partners years after the actual relationship. As long as they are treated with respect – on which they insist! – they will treat their former partner the same way.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)

Getting up and go one is the creed of Aquarius-exes. Immediately after ending the relationship they will keep distance and will not get closer. They go on with their lives right away, in a different direction in which there is no place for you anymore.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20)

Pisces are forgiving, but find it very hear to get a clear view of what they want and need. Break-up or continue the relationship? Stay in touch or have no contact at all? They do not know, and will keep in touch until they know for sure your story together has come to an end.
