Everyone has that one thing that, despite even the best of intentions, makes them feel shattered inside. This is what your zodiac sign says about your heartbreak so that you know how to handle your romantic despair in the future.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
You can deal with a friendly disagreement for the sake of intellectual stimulation, but your heart sinks when you find that your partner rejects your core values. Your principles are very important to you, and you feel threatened when your significant other doesn’t share your progressive attitude.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
The easiest way for someone to completely break your heart is by dredging up the past as a way to embarrass or hurt you. Your heart is left in pieces when your partner uses your mistakes to justify their actions, and you’ll also find this almost impossible to forgive.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
You usually know exactly what to do to keep your spirits high, but someone who knows you well has the ability to shatter your optimism. It’s very hard to destroy your confidence, but if your partner is able to tap into your insecurities you will face a long-lasting heartbreak.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
Of course any breakup is sure to rattle anyone. When you’re dumped without any hints, you resort to classic post-relationship behavior. Change of any kind raises your anxiety, but when it comes to matters of the heart you are unable to bounce back quickly.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Your heart cannot handle loneliness, and if your partner is neglecting you emotionally you feel empty and unfulfilled. It takes a lot for you to commit to someone due to your indecisive tendencies, and so when you don’t get the attention you deserve, you shut down.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
Because it’s hard for you to open up, your biggest fear is someone taking advantage of, or criticizing, your emotions. It seriously breaks your heart when your partner trivializes your sadness, especially because you always do your best to be sensitive to his feelings.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
Your partner is clearly aware that your pride is usually there to mask your insecurities, and therefore your heart is extremely sensitive to criticism. Harsh words that only have the purpose of hurting you really take a toll on your emotions, sometimes to an extreme.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
You are highly critical of yourself, and this means that you’re often to blame for your own heartbreak. You need your partner to pick up every little sign that you’re craving extra affection as a method of reassurance, and this usually leaves you unsatisfied and unhappy.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
Your fear of confrontation extends beyond people-pleasing, for you also cannot handle being the one who is confronted. Your heart crumbles when your partner voices a problem that he has with you, especially when he points his finger; you might not be able to forget this for quite some time.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
The only thing you hate more than exposing one of your secrets is a liar, and so whenever you catch your partner in a devious lie, you’re left broken-hearted. You cannot fathom the thought that your secrets have been handed over to someone you can’t trust, especially if the person in question claims to be committed to you.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
Your partner breaks your heart when he decides that he doesn’t want to be a part of your next adventure. You’ve sacrificed a lot for him, and you can’t deal with the fact that once you decide to welcome him into your spontaneous life he can’t seem to handle it.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
You take your relationships very seriously, and when your partner treats matters too lightly he ends up breaking your heart without meaning to. Nothing hurts more than when you expect the worst, and the worst is what you get.
