Putting yourself out there again after a heartbreak is a big risk. Sometimes, it can take longer for certain people to feel comfortable enough to do so than others. Here’s how to know if you’re ready to get back into the dating world (according to your zodiac sign).
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
You know your worth – and you won’t settle for just anyone. You are incredibly confident and self-ruling. Even if you feel a little wary about letting yourself fall again, you won’t hold yourself back; you are appreciative of a fresh, new start.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Your sign loves to love. Your immense compassion for other people will help you open yourself up again, even after a particularly painful heartbreak. You know that love is worth it.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
As an Aries woman, you might feel as though everything is spiraling out of control after a breakup. However, you have the utmost confidence in yourself. You may not be ready to devote yourself right away, but you trust yourself enough to make the right decisions when it’s time.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Taurus women may feel like they need to have both feet planted firmly into the ground. Love tends to shake your foundation, making you feel a bit apprehensive in starting the journey. In order for you to love again, try to get comfortable with the idea that love isn’t static – it’s always changing.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Since Geminis are notoriously spontaneous, you’ll be ready and willing to love again almost immediately. That’s not to say that you rush into things – rather, you’re simply comfortable enough to take that chance.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
When you love someone, you love them with your whole being – you certainly aren’t shy about expressing how you feel. A painful separation can leave you feeling particularly vulnerable. It might take some time before you feel like you can open yourself up to another person again.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
Leo women are resilient. You have the amazing ability to pick yourself up off the ground and keep moving forward – you have little difficulty putting yourself back out there.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Love can be irrational, and Virgos need a sense of rationality and order in their lives. It may take you a while to realize that you need to let yourself go in order to be truly open to love.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Libras put a lot of energy into maintaining balance in their lives. Because of this, you might feel drained when it comes to love, seeing how it can feel turbulent at times. It will take some time for you to want to take a chance on love again.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
Scorpio women need time to heal after they’ve parted ways with a lover – they tend to keep their emotions bottled up inside. The most important thing for a Scorpio is to feel like you can be yourself around someone. You’ll know you’re ready to move forward when you’re able to trust people once again.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
The most important part of opening yourself up to love again is being able to love yourself first. Sagittarius women are comfortable with themselves. You heal quickly and you’re willing to put yourself out there, but you also value yourself enough to wait for the right person.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
As a Capricorn, you tend to lose sight of the important things in life – but that’s just because you’re passionate about achieving your goals. Try and ground yourself from time to time. Once you start giving attention to the other areas of your life, you’ll be ready to love again.
