Which Pet Suits You Best Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You just don't care, Aries. When it's done, it's done. You won't hesitate before destroying all of an ex's memories. The first few weeks following a breakup are the busiest times for you. You'll fill your calendar with activities and meet new people. You'll claim that the relationship was holding you back and that you can now achieve these things as a result. But, the truth is that you can't be alone and not think of your ex.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus doesn't change after a breakup. Your life is going on as usual, both before and after. You feel tremendous suffering on the inside, but you seek comfort in your daily routine. Continue eating the same breakfast, going for the same stroll, and relaxing after work. It almost seems as though you are simply waiting for the situation to end. This is because, Taurus, you are aware that only time will be able to mend everything.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Being alone after a breakup is one thing a Gemini can't do. When you really want to cry, you're laughing. You might ring your ex at 3:00 in the morning weeping, but by dawn you'll be laughing. You start acting illogically when you understand, Gemini, that your relationship was nonsensical. It's true that a Gemini will dive headfirst into an emotional hole after a breakup. It's because you are incapable of controlling your emotions. You know that the only way to deal with the intense pain is to laugh a lot at yourself and your ex.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

It takes six months to end a three-month relationship with a Cancer. No matter who ends the relationship, this will happen. When you cling even more tightly and appear to have lost the ability to give your partner any space at all, Cancer, you will realize that the relationship is almost over. So, you'll sit there for a few weeks after a breakup thinking about how your ex's fragrance will disappear from your pillow while your eyes are closed and tears are running down your face.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, the way you react after a breakup mostly depends on whether you initiated it or someone else broke your heart. If it was you who broke up with the other individual, we trust that everything will be fine. This person was probably bugging you, and if they had been truly important, you wouldn't have let them go. However, if they break up with you, hell breaks loose. How can someone who is so close to you fail to recognize how fantastic you are?

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

You know what a Virgo is like, right? They’re a person who genuinely doesn't care whether they are in a relationship or not. Honestly, a relationship is simply so much effort and you, dear Virgo, are kind of grateful no one is blocking your shower drain with hairs anymore. You may be depressed after a breakup like any other earth sign, but the essence of Virgo is, well, virgin, so…

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Like any Aries, you want to prove that you are over the relationship as soon as possible, but instead of acting like you've really broken up, you keep nagging the other person by sending them memes or updates on your day. People may say "Let's still be friends," Libra, but they don't really mean it. Even if they do, the kind of friendship they are referring to isn't where the relationship stays the same.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You know the saying, "Every relationship takes half the time to get over it"? Make that twice as long for Scorpio. Scorpio, while claiming to be over someone, you still check their social media accounts constantly. You’ll act all tough and indifferent, but you’re truly in pain. Let it go, Scorpio. Apparently, this person isn’t the one.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Since you hardly express your feelings, dear Sagittarius, we really have no idea how you cope with a breakup. You see, Sagittarius is a believer in The Secret's power. You believe that things will happen just because you think they ought to happen. You believe that you unconsciously wanted to end your relationship, thus it happened.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn only has to go through this—we mean, life—because they have to. Indeed, the breakup is a part of this, but so is the entire relationship and everything else. Yes, Capricorn, you only spent time with your ex because you felt obligated to. You accept things as they are, therefore that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you break up with someone, it was probably out of necessity, and if you were broken up with, you probably handled it with humor since you've gotten used to accepting whatever comes your way in life.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

You, dear Aquarius, essentially believe that you will be over a breakup in 30 minutes, except for the nagging little sentiments in your chest. "What distinguishes being in a relationship from not being in one?" wonders Aquarius. "Aren't we just floating around in the dark on a huge, hot rock? What significance does it have in the overall scheme of things?" Pretend all you want, Aquarius, but sooner or later, you have to deal with this pain of a breakup that brings tears in your eyes every night.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Never, ever speak to a Pisces after a breakup. To them, a day and a year are the same. They already think they can communicate with you telepathically, so just let them be. If your ex texted you, Pisces, you’ll take a trip down memory lane asking them questions about things that happened a million years ago. A breakup is super hard for you, we know, and you’re likely to feel betrayed, melancholic, and desperate. The good news is that you’ll get over it.

Breakups are difficult. But we all experience them at some point since they are a natural part of life. What counts most is how you handle those tough situations. Do you get lost in your work and completely forget about your ex? Do you spend months obsessing over their social media updates? Do you make an effort to maintain your friendship with them in order to annoy them? No matter how you react after a break, take your time to heal and come back when you’re ready.

Growing up, I've always wanted to become so many things: a fashion designer, painter, singer, actress, and anything that revolves around art. It wasn't until I watched "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" that I realized that writing is the one thing that will enable me to write about all sorts of things and all types of art. Writing is one of the dearest things to my heart as it expresses who I am and what I stand for. My wardrobe is pink inked, fashion is my passion, beauty is my duty, and cats are my best furr-iends❤️
