When you are at a movie, do you stop and think about what your emotional compass is doing during the movie? For instance, do you enjoy it as it flows and let the movie plot just “happen” to you, do you subconsciously predict an ending, or do you feel helpless and clueless if you even try to predict the ending? A movie must have a resolvable problem within the plot to be successful. Relationships are much like a live movie. Hence, your response during a movie may be indicative of how you deal with the break-up of a relationship. Moreover, your astrological sign is also tied into your response and reaction to the parting of ways with a significant other.
Relationships Have a Beginning and an Ending: How Do You Cope?
Read on for some insights and advice based on your astrological sign:
Capricorn: Capricorn, it is time to tear down that wall and loosen up that agenda! Possibly your previous partner shared the same ambition you did, but perhaps you were on different airplanes going in opposite directions. For now, maintain your routine and “keep on keeping on.” You are a soul who likes to stay busy and that will keep your mind focused on other activities throughout this trying time.
Aquarius: Much like their air sign, the Aquarian enjoys a love for beauty, innovation, and liberal open-mindedness. This may have turned off your partner if they were structured or rigid. Perhaps they figured out your penchants for being just a bit passive-aggressive. It’s best that you just “suck it up” and to choose more wisely next time for a like mind. Go on noticing the beauty around you, stay involved in activities, and don’t let this fumble stifle your uniqueness.
Pisces: Apologies, Pisces, for sending some hot-heads your way for your next relationship. It’s just that you’re so…..compassionate. Although it may be overkill, all that intensity makes most Pisces very desirable partners. The struggles begin when that ability to connect becomes controlling enough to suffocate a partner. A like-minded Pisces might be the answer next time, but you will have to work together to keep a spark in the relationship.
Aries:Aries, you might possibly breeze through a break-up more quickly and easily than most other signs. The Ram is a fire sign whose predominant color is red (need I say more). You tend to put yourself first and shine at starting new things, but your staying power and completion rates are minimal. Hence, quit frowning and arguing about who was right and who was wrong and seek out a chill Libra or Pisces for next time, or use that red to challenge a Sagittarius. After all, horses and rams often do well in the same pasture.
Taurus:Like the creature that symbolizes Taurus, a broken-hearted bull may want to crash through the now-ex’s domicile and leave everything in total chaos. But this is not the time to be a “bully.” Pamper yourself, allow time to heal, and enjoy life’s other pleasures. The Earth rules this sun sign that is committed and sturdy. Perhaps match up next time with a compassionate Pisces or Cancer.
Gemini:Gemini, do one of your favorite things and get a makeover. When you know you look good, you feel better. Much like Aquarius, Gemini is an air sign who’s quite capable of being mutable. In fact, self-check to make sure that you weren’t being Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in this recent relationship. Use your prominent witty ability to laugh your way through this foible because your charm will soon attract a new — and probably more suitable — mate.
Cancer: The moon lends strong intuitive traits to this water sign, but along with that comes heavy emotions such as intensity and compassion. You treasure family and connections, so this time may be particularly difficult for you. Be sure to take care of yourself and know that “Que sera, sera” (whatever will be, will be), which may be easier said than done. Just knowing that you’ll likely need and want extra support from friends is a start in the right direction. Embrace your deepness and share it later with someone who can return the intensity.
Leo: Leo, Leo, Leo! Don’t let your penchants for self-esteem and love-of-self inflate into narcissism, as a break-up that was not your idea may perplex you and separate you from reality. I know, break-ups are usually your idea and this one really threw you a curve ball. This may be your best opportunity for self-reflection and a profound reality-check. No one is perfect and flawless. Embrace this important lesson.
Virgo:After a break-up, you likely will have no trouble keeping yourself busy. Your duckies are almost always in a row, and if they aren’t, you’ll busy yourself getting them there. Do a little self-reflection and see if your knack for organization and resistance to spontaneity might have contributed to this. Next time, consider pairing up with a fun-loving Sagittarius who can help you let go.
Libra: Most people who share the sign of the genteel Libra have a genuine heart and love for people. That’s why you might take a break-up harder than some others in the universe. The positive side is that you almost always have a large circle of friends and acquaintances to rally around you throughout it all. Just be careful of those fateful rebounds, because those relationships rarely work out for the long term.
Scorpio:Take off your hard-hat, Scorpio, and analyze what destroyed this particular relationship. The scorpion is well-known for its sting, but that does not mean it’s always your fault. Along with that stubborn demeanor comes a strong sense of self. You may wish to seek out a genteel Pisces or determined Cancer for that next go-around. Try not to be too hard on yourself; put on your big girl or big boy pants.
Sagittarius: Dear centaur, although it feels like your whole world has crashed and burned around you, take a moment to realize that you’ve felt this way before…more than once. The intensity of the fire sign lends you to quick burn-out. Take time to do your favorite past-time: travel or take up a new physical activity to get those endorphins pumping. You’ll soon be back to new
