Aries (March 21 – April 19) The anger and resentment of an Aries ex are unlikely to disappear very quickly after the breakup. The Aries will have no problem placing the blame on you and may continue to be aggressive and refuse to seek reasonable accommodation to your needs. Your Aries ex’s whole attitude will center on what they feel entitled to because of your past mistakes (even if you are not the one who made the mistake). Should you refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing, your Aries ex is unlikely to forgive you or let up in laying on the guilt trips.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) If a Taurus does the breaking up, then there is a practical reason for doing so, and you can expect a fair and respectful end to the relationship. If you try to challenge a Taurus, regardless of who is ending the relationship, expect a stubborn stance on Taurus’ end no matter how strong your reasoning may be. Taurus exes are likely to pile their responsibilities onto you, particularly when children are involved. Even when going through difficult periods financially and emotionally, they can usually be counted on. In the event that they cannot meet a payment on time, they will certainly let you know beforehand. If the breakup or divorce was the Taurus’ idea, you may not expect a whole lot more from him/her than what is required by law.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21) For such independent and high-spirited souls, Gemini exes can turn surprisingly loyal, faithful and even dependent once they are no longer involved with you romantically or maritally. It may be strange to see them caring about you more as a friend than a lover, but this astonishing act often proves true. Perhaps it is easier for them to give when not so much is required of them. It will often work better not to put pressure on them after a breakup and to wait to see if their goodwill is forthcoming without requesting it.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) With Cancers, it is important to know who broke up with whom and whether the breakup was by mutual agreement or without animosity. If it’s the latter scenario, there is no real problem. If Cancer exes are the ones who do the leaving, they may be surprisingly easy to deal with since they are not feeling rejected and may even have been empowered by the experience. However, if they are the ones who have been dumped, all kinds of aggressive, negative and hurtful tendencies may surface. Resentment is likely to play a large part here, particularly when they feel they have been rejected through no fault of their own. Their feelings of having been unfairly treated can create negative blocks that last for years against their ex.
Leo (July 23 – August 22) If Leo exes feel well-treated by you, they are likely to be generous and agreeable with you after a clean breakup. If not, they can show a remarkable amount of coldness. In such a situation, Leos will rarely become aggressive or turn vindictive unless they have been severely roughed up. It is usually best to calm a nervous Leo with objective assurances of your positive intent first, and then to behave politely on a personal level, avoiding sarcasm or insults. The Leo ex will often want to move on quickly to the next partner as they struggle with being alone.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22) Virgo exes are not usually very enthusiastic about continuing relationships with their former mates. Too often, they are filled with negative feelings and prefer to simply break cleanly with the past. Good with lawyers and legal issues, they will pursue every avenue to assure they are adequately compensated and cared for in the case of gaining custody of the children. They prefer to keep things very cool and matter-of-fact with their exes, although they can be prone to irritation and anger, particularly when they feel wronged or unfairly treated.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) Libra exes are likely to leave their partners bewildered and confused when initiating a breakup. The Libra ex continues to exert power over those they leave or outright reject, lasting far beyond the time of the breakup. Should a Libra ex be the one rejected, they usually have more advanced recuperative powers, sometimes viewing their past relationship as nothing more than a hiccup in their busy love lives.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Scorpio exes are not easy to deal with. They’re not opposed to revenging your past actions, particularly if you have thrown insults. As their ex, be prepared to be tested. You will have to decide whether to wait things out defensively or to meet their attack with a counterattack, but either way, be prepared to form a strategy in conjunction with your family, lawyer or friends. Scorpio individuals can also play mind games with their exes to sway them into behaving in a manner that it is to their advantage.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 20) Generally pretty cool emotionally, Sagittarius exes are unlikely to indulge in open displays of feelings as long as animosities do not surface. They prefer to remain objective about the current situation, neither feeling sentimental about the past nor being overly hopeful about the future. Although they are not averse to discussions, they will discourage emotional dependencies by keeping such interactions few, short and if not sweet, at least polite. Sagittarius exes believe that if both parties can show goodwill and cordiality, they stand a chance of working things out to be on friendly terms with one another.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 19) Capricorn exes will usually adopt a responsible attitude toward their partners, which can last for years after the breakup. It is not at all unusual for Capricorns to take a continued interest in their ex, demonstrating caring and concern without any awakening of romantic interest or passion. Capricorn exes are particularly sensitive to the criticism of family members and mutual friends, causing them to act in a proper, mature manner. Likewise, Capricorn exes will insist that their former partners treat them properly and with respect. They can be very unforgiving of others, especially those they shared a deep friendship and romance with, if they believe they are being insulted or ignored.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 19) Do not be surprised if Aquarius exes do not show a great interest in you or your feelings. Chances are they have moved on to someone else, which will either produce a sigh of relief or extreme pain depending on your own feelings. After the breakup, they may not show much recognition of you, and if they appear to be detached, it’s because they are. Aquarius signs are prone to treat their exes as if they no longer exist, thus making any sort of future relationship or friendship with them difficult. With most Aquarius exes, once it is over, it is over.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20) It may take a while on their end to nurse their bruised feelings, but once Pisces exes are truly over you, they will generally not return or even attempt to make contact. The period between the initial breakup and this point of no return can be trying for both parties involved. The Pisces is the symbol of two fish swimming around in different directions, very reflective of this sign's personality. Pisces have great difficulty making up their minds as they are easily influenced by others. Pisces exes can have a very destabilizing effect on one’s life. Though their uncertainty is real, they are generally not vindictive, and it’s not usually a tactic they bestow upon their ex.
