Aries isn't the best at breakups, unlike other fire signs. Mars, the warrior planet, rules them, thus they split up and reunite endlessly. Breakups surprise them since they anticipate to stay with their partner forever, however difficult.
Aries' self-esteem suffers if an ex rejects or leaves them. They want the final word even if they don't want to see their ex, and it might niggle at them for months. This sign has trouble letting go, thus they take a while to move on.
Cancer requires excellent friends to take their phone away after a breakup to avoid texting their ex. When left alone, they'll do anything to get back with a partner, even if it's bad.
Cancers are quick to forgive and forget, but they struggle to understand why a relationship ended. Cancer, a loving water sign, likes to look back with rose-colored glasses, making it hard to move on.
Scorpios take forever to get over an ex because they're scheming retribution. Instead of moving on, they'll spend weeks writing a caustic email or planning a name-shaming campaign.
Scorpio is a grudge-holder. As a very intuitive indication, they'll feel furious at themselves for disregarding breakup signs and swear never to do it again. To avoid harm, they'll remember their ex and all they did and said forever.
Pisces takes the longest to get over an ex. Water signs governed by Neptune will be melancholy for decades following a breakup. The first several days will be filled with tears at work and in public, and they may need a day off to process.
Pisces overthink after recovering from the first shock. “They often blame themselves for the relationship failing,” says Garbis, wondering whether they might have done things differently.
