I used to be obsessed with astrology. I’d count down till the end of the month and set an alarm on the first day of every month to read Susan Miller’s monthly Aries horoscope. I circled dates on my calendar and wrote in “lucky day for love” or “Mercury Retrograde” or “new moon, new beginnings” because I truly believe the moon, the stars and the planets align to mold our personalities and that planetary energy shifts life events.
Call me crazy, but I believe in God as much as I believe in astrological relationship compatibility.
If you’re not compatible, a breakup is imminent. Luckily, astrology can help with the approach to use to break up with said non-simpatico person. Astrologist Danielle Mercurio gives us the skinny on how to break up with someone according to astrological sign. It may just help ease the dolor of heartbreak.
Aries (Mar 21st-Apr 20th)
Straight-shooting firecrackers, Aries don’t take too kindly to excessive excuses. “Whether breaking up in person or via text, it’s likely your former Aries mate will be dismissive and not want to talk further,” said Danielle. So, “don’t try to justify or coddle the situation.They move on fast and don’t want to waste anymore time than need be.”
Taurus (Apr 21st-May 20th)
The bull is all about fairness, logic and practicality. So it’s important to “keep it real when expressing why the relationship isn’t working out,” Mercurio suggested. “They may not be happy about it; however, they won’t judge or resent you.”
Gemini (May 21st-Jun 20th)
The twins are persuasive which is why you need be level headed when ending the relationship. “Gemini is a great negotiator,” said Danielle, so “make sure you say your peace and then move on.” Or they may reel you back in with their convincing charm.
Cancer (Jun 21st-Jul 22nd)
Oh, how the sensitive crab will hurt after a breakup! That’s why you must prepare yourself for tears and even potential pleas to make the relationship work. “Be strong and cut ties as best you can as it’s likely they will resurface via text,” added Mercurio.
Leo (Jul 23rd-Aug 22nd)
When breaking it off with a Leo you might need lots of liquid courage. It really is that hard to break up with the King of the zodiac! “Best approach is to be direct and honest,” Danielle encouraged. “The lion’s heart may bruise easily, however, they want to know why the breakup is occurring so they can benefit in future relationships.”
