How to Get Over a Relationship Breakup by Star Sign

     


photoThere are few events in life more stressful than relationship breakups, but sadly they’re something we all have to face – for one reason or another – at some time in our lives.

Finding a recovery strategy that works well for us, and in particular for our Star Sign, is crucial in enabling us to move on as quickly and smoothly as possible. So here are our top pointers for each of the 12 Star Signs (classified by Element) to help us get over disappointments in love.

1) The Best Relationship Breakup Recovery Strategy for Fire Signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius): Carry Your Head High and Re-Build Your Ego

Everyone’s pride takes a knock after a relationship failure, but for Fire Signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), the resultant loss of self-esteem can be particularly hard to bear.

For this reason, if you’re a Fire Sign, the first thing you need to do following a relationship breakup is to give yourself a little ego self-massage and remind yourself of all the great things about yourself that make you the wonderful person you truly are. Spending some money on yourself – because ‘you’re worth it’ – will also help to make you feel a whole lot better about yourself soon!

For you, more than most other people, it’s important to carry your head high and hold onto your precious dignity. Avoid at all costs any kind of chasing, pleading, whining and complaining, which only serve to make you look weak and desperate. Walk tall and act like you’re proud of yourself (even if you feel very small inside) and your confidence will soon return.

2) The Best Relationship Breakup Recovery Strategy for Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn):
Keep Yourself Occupied and Focus On Practicalities

Of all the Star Signs, Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) tend to be the most practical, sensible and business-like in the wake of a relationship breakup.

If you’re a typical Earth sign, when something goes wrong in your love life, you don’t want – nor need – to make a big fuss about it. Moping, emoting, and endlessly raking over the ashes are just a waste of time and energy, from your point of view. Instinctively you sense your best route to recovery is to keep your mind off your miseries by staying busy and giving yourself plenty to do.

With your matter-of-fact outlook and stoical nature, when faced with a crisis you find it easier than most other people to stay calm and just carry on. Sorting out the practicalities of a relationship aftermath is something you’re both very good at, and is also very good for you. By taking personal responsibility for unravelling shared finances and the like you’ll not only minimize your material losses, but will also help yourself to achieve closure and prepare to move on.

3) The Best Relationship Breakup Recovery Strategy for Air Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius): Reason Out What Happened and Why, Then Learn From It

If you’re an Air Sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) you’re likely to take a relatively cool-headed, emotionally detached approach to relationship breakups.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you’re not hurting just as much as anybody else. But, as in any kind of life crisis, your instinctive response is to logically think (rather than feel) your way through the situation by carefully analyzing the whys and wherefores.

Because communication is your life blood, rationally discussing your relationship problems with other people and seeking their objective feedback plays a vital role in your recovery strategy. For you, it’s essential to be able to fully understand, and gain clarity about, what has happened before you can move on.

In the aftermath of a romantic breakup, the first questions you may tend to ask are ‘why did this happen?’ and ‘what could I have done differently?’ As an Air Sign, you’re a keen student, and quite rightly you want to learn as much as you can from your failures and disappointments in life to avoid making the same mistakes the next time.

4) The Best Relationship Breakup Recovery Strategy for Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces): Find a Kind Shoulder to Cry On and Let Out Your Feelings

Because Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) find the emotional fall-out of a relationship failure exceptionally hard to bear, it takes them quite a lot longer than average to recover and heal.

If you’re a Water Sign, don’t expect to be able to bounce back fast following the ending of a relationship. Actually, trying to rush your post-breakup recovery is the worst thing you can possibly do. More than most other people, you need to allow yourself plenty of time to process your hurt feelings before you’re ready to ‘get back in the saddle’ again.

Do you have a strong emotional support network in your life – a small group of people you can always turn to for comfort and support? If so, this is a time when you’ll really appreciate them and want to make the most of them. If not, be your own emotional support person by treating yourself very gently and caringly and allowing the tears to flow. As a Water Sign, crying is very good for you and the best way to help yourself to heal.
