Why You Can’t Let Go: Astro Reasons Each Zodiac Can’t Let Things Go
Here’s why you can’t get over your ex based on astrology.
1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
You hate not getting what you want.
It’s difficult for Aries to accept that they might not get what they want because they are so used to getting what they desire. You will refuse to accept that the relationship is over, and will keep on trying to make everything right; getting defeated is something you despise.
Aries always give their all when it comes to everything, especially relationships, and when they realize that things are not working out, they find it hard to accept it. You are always used to getting what you want, and you don’t really know what to do when that doesn’t happen.
2. Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You feel a piece of you is missing.
You don’t fall for anyone that easily, but when you do you fall hard. You give your all for the relationship, and there is nothing you don’t do to make your partner feel happy and secure. So when your relationship ends, you can’t let go because they have become an essential part of your life and you don’t know what you will do without them.
They are like a vital organ for you, without which you feel you will not survive. You are a strong person, but trying to let go of someone with whom you have spent so much time, is painfully hard.
3. Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You hate losing people from your life.
You can’t let go because you hate the idea of losing anyone from your life, even if they have treated you very badly. Geminis are social people, and the more people they have in their life, the happier they will be. You always try to retain everyone in your life and give your best to be on good terms with them.
So, when a relationship ends and someone leaves your life, you don’t know how to deal with that. You try to do everything in your power to bring them back to your life, and never lose them.
4. Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
You don’t like unhappy endings.
Cancer is the most emotional zodiac sign you will ever come across. So naturally, breakups and any sort of unhappy endings will devastate them. You hate separating from the one you love, and you find it extremely painful to give up on the relationship that you have nurtured for all these years. Love for you is an incredibly important thing and you have never taken it for granted.
Cancer always fights for the one they love, sometimes without realizing that they might be better off without them. You have always believed in happy endings, so when you don’t get that, you don’t know what to do.
5. Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You should be the one to break up, not the other way around.
Leos are very dominating by nature, and they like to hold the steering wheel at all times. You like having the last word every time, so when someone breaks up with you, you just don’t accept it.
If someone is breaking up, it should always be you, not the other way around. If you are not ready to let them go, you will never let them go. Whatever happens, will happen on your terms, and unless you end the relationship, it’s not the end.
6. Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
You find it hard to accept that you made a wrong decision.
Virgos are perfectionists and making hasty decisions is not their forte. You see your relationship as a business deal that needs to go right no matter what. When you find yourself on the receiving end of a breakup, you feel flabbergasted as to why it did not work out, despite you putting so much effort and time into it.
According to you, you can never make the wrong decisions, and that is why you try very hard to make things better and go back to normal. You can’t let go because you are not used to failures.
7. Libra (September 23rd– October 22nd)
You find change uncomfortable.
Libras prefer sticking to the old script and would rather be in an unhappy relationship than be with someone new. Librans always try to fix the broken rather than moving on and trying to be with someone else. If you want you can move on from the relationship, but you don’t really do well with change and that’s why you try your best to retain the relationship you are in.
Laziness and complacency play a huge part in your being like this. The whole prospect of you getting out there and doing everything all over again is exhausting and daunting to you.
8. Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
You don’t like the idea of them being with someone else.
Scorpios are jealous people, and the mere thought of their loved one being with someone else is enough for them to self-combust. They hate seeing their ex be in a relationship with someone else and will feel jealous, angry, and anxious, all at the same time.
This makes them work hard to bring them back, and keep them forever. You feel that you belong with each other, and no one will love them the way you did.
9. Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
You are reminded of them wherever you go.
You can’t let go because everything reminds you of them. No matter where you go and what you do, you are always reminded of them. When you are spending time with your friends, you will find yourself talking about them. When you are traveling, you will wish that they were there by your side. If you are shopping, you will want to buy their favorite things for them. You are stuck inside your mind, and you are constantly thinking about what they are doing, where they are going, and how they are faring.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
You will never find a connection like that again.
You don’t fall for anyone that easily, because not a lot of people succeed in winning your heart. So when the relationship gets over you have a hard time moving on from it, because you feel that you won’t be able to experience that kind of a connection with anyone else.
You tell yourself that what you had with them will never happen again, and that is why you keep on going back to them. In your mind, you know that things won’t go back to the way they were, but you will still try your best.
11. Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
You expect everything to be like a fairytale.
You are someone who believes in fairy tales, happy endings, and utter perfection. When you get into a relationship with someone you expect everything to work out in the end, no matter what.
So even if they break up with you, you don’t stress much about it because you feel that they will come to you with a sincere apology and everything will go back to the way they were. Unfortunately, real life does not always work that way.
12. Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
You regret sharing your deepest secrets, and being vulnerable.
When you go through a breakup, you feel that all the things that you shared with them including your deepest secrets and vulnerabilities have gone to waste. You don’t talk about your feelings with just anyone; you only do so with people who you trust completely. The moment you feel that you have a deep emotional bond with someone, you talk about everything that’s in your heart. So when your relationship ends, you regret the fact that you shared everything with them, and they still did not stick around.
