7. Horse (2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966)
They shut down.
The horse is used to being liked, thriving as they are the center of attention. Always the more dominant one in a relationship. So when their partner loses interest they don’t know how to really respond to someone not adoring them anymore. Their confidence comes from others. So when a relationship fails they lose a bit of confidence in themselves thinking they are to blame.
8. Goat (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967)
They try to fix it.
The goat has a very good sense of being able to tell when something is even slightly off. They have calm and reserved personalities. They will never take out intense emotions on you or channel negativity in your direction. Instead, they just want to fix the problem. Sometimes the problem though isn’t something you can fix. It’s something you have to walk away from and that’s tough.
9. Monkey (2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968)
They take everything out on their partner.
As they fail to understand why the relationship is ending instead of realizing they are part of the problem, they project all of the blame onto their partner. They find themselves losing it for reasons that aren’t even related to the relationship. Pointing at someone else takes attention away from the fact they might be the problem.
10. Rooster (2005, 1993, 1981, 1969)
They try and take control of the situation at hand.
When their relationship is out of control and they don’t know how to fix it they latch onto controlling what they can.
11. Dog (2006, 1994, 1982, 1970)
They keep you in the dark.
The dog is usually the most honest and loyal but when their relationship is failing and being the person they are isn’t working, they suddenly begin to shift into a version of themselves they or their partner don’t recognize and it only makes things worse.
12. Pig (2007, 1995, 1983, 1971)
They don’t communicate well.
When relationships come to an end the partner doesn’t see it coming. The pig knows it but won’t admit it as they see things very logically. But they struggle in articulating it. So when they can’t identify the problem they create more. Their partner asks what’s on their mind and the pig is afraid to admit it’s over.
