Breakups and Aries




Been dumped by an Aries? Well, that's not unusual! With the quickest temper in the Zodiac, Aries is probably the easiest sign to break up with. If you’re dating an Aries, be prepared for a lot of cut and thrust and the occasional bout of head butting. But the good news is that because it quickly gets over its little tantrums, Aries is also by far the easiest sign to get back together with.

What you need to understand is there’s no messing about with an Aries. If you’ve upset them, they won't hesitate to let you know immediately, directly, and in no uncertain terms. As a group, Aries people aren’t given to biting their tongue or keeping the lid on their temper. They believe in letting their feelings hang out, and tough luck for anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves in the line of fire.

If this happens to be you, at least you have the consolation of knowing that Aries' anger doesn't usually last for long. Often enough, once an Aries has gotten off their chest whatever was bugging them, they’re ready to carry on just like before. Too bad you’re likely to be still reeling from the onslaught and desperately trying to process what the hell is going on.


Want to avoid getting dumped by an Aries? Then you just have to know how to avoid provoking them – which basically means respecting their personal autonomy. As the first and foremost sign of the Zodiac, Aries is also the most independent and the most headstrong. It doesn’t like having to change its agenda to suit other people and always reacts badly to being told what to do. In fact a major cause of breakups with Aries is trying to stand in its way.

As the cardinal fire sign, Aries responds to life with a burning, unquenchable passion which demands an active outlet and instant gratification. Hold an Aries back, slow them down, or deny them what they have set their mind on and you’re likely to be shoved roughly aside. Sounds a bit unnecessarily aggressive? Well maybe – after all, Aries' ruling planet is Mars, the god of war!


To win back an Aries ex, bear in mind the direct approach is the only one they're likely to respond to. So no whining, no recriminations, and no raking over of what went wrong. Just make it clear you'd like to put the past behind you and make a brand new start. Give it one shot, but if that fails, don't waste your time running after your Aries ex. Take it on the chin, be a good sport and be willing to unequivocally call it quits. At least that way you'll keep their respect.


• Don't take their rantings and ravings too seriously - they quickly tend to pass.
• Never attempt to fence them in or restrict their freedom of movement. 
• Always let them think they're in charge - even though you know different!
