Nearly all of your partners will end up as exes, and so will you. It’s one of the inevitable roles in life.

So it’s worth having some hint of what someone will be like as an ex, before you start dating them.

Astrology might be able to give us a sneak preview.

Some of us are cosmically destined to handle breakups, well, better than others, and each person’s star sign can go some way in indicating what they’ll be like as an ex.

Read on to see how each star sign is likely to react to the end of a love affair.

Aries

March 21 to April 20

Everything is a competition to you, and love is no different. Therefore, you will always be determined to ‘win’ the breakup battle.

Cue: an immediate makeover, a flurry of high-octane socialising and madcap antics all captured (and shared, heavily filtered) on social media, a rebound relationship with a hottie (again, shared on social media).

Your heart might be breaking, but no one would know. You look like you’re having the time of your life.

Taurus

April 21 to May 21

You have a thing about control, and if you were not the instigating agent of the breakup then you are going to find it a very bitter pill to swallow.

You might try underhand tactics to try to regain that footing in their life, you might do some low-key social media stalking, just to keep an eye on things.

Time will heal this wound, but it’s a slow-moving thing. On the outside, you’re cool and calm as ever. You hate to show vulnerability.

Gemini

May 22 to June 21

You’re such a contrary character that it’s possible, if not probable, that you think more about exes than actual real-life current relationships.

You act in the opposite way to how you really feel much of the time. You don’t like it when people return your affections, even when you started it, and really liked them. You warm up when people turn away or move on themselves.

You are unpredictable in love. Your exes probably see more of you, and get on better with you, now than they did back then.

Cancer

June 22 to July 23

Cancerian exes are a tricky proposition. You don’t like to let things (and that includes people) that you held affection for go. Not ever. Never ever.

You’re the kind of person who will probably still have them all on speed-dial, and you’ll know what they’re up to.

You like to feel you could click your fingers and get them interested again, and sometimes you even put that theory to the test. Usually with positive results – because you’re a sexy charmer when you want to be.

Leo

July 24 to August 23

You can be overly dramatic. Therefore, breakups are a source of great theatricals, performances, and general soap opera-style activity (and part of you secretly thrives on it).

You can be very jealous and possessive, and that can extend to exes too. Those flames, that once burned so brightly, don’t just fade to nothing overnight.

It can be hard for you to let go completely, even if you instigated the breakup. You love hard. You hate hard too. But love always wins through.

Virgo

August 24 to September 23

‘I told you so’ is the strapline of all Virgos, so there is a deep-seated need within you to prove that you were right all along when it comes to exes.

You need to be vindicated and shown to be the ‘better person’, whether you were the instigator or not. You keep the receipts, you stockpile evidence, you build a literal case to show that this breakup was not your fault, was inevitable, happened for the best, and you’re the one in charge.

You also secretly believe they’ll never get anyone as good as you (and you might be right – Virgos are ace life partners).

Libra

September 24 to October 23

Libra, you’ve not got time to pine. The world is full of beautiful people, and you’re eager and willing to ride the romance carousel around as many of them as you can.

You’re a natural-born flirt, and you never have a shortage of admirers. Life’s too short for whittling over what might have been, you’re already thinking about what (or who) might come next.

Exes are often quite shocked at how fast you move on. You can flip a switch like no other sign.

Scorpio

October 24 to November 22

Exes of Scorpio who have done wrong, need their own ‘Scorpio Protection Program’. You are not one to take unkindness or betrayal lying down, you believe in the concept of revenge, and enjoy enacting it out.

You are short, sharp, and brutal when it comes to handling people you don’t want in your life any longer, and when it comes to getting even with those you feel have treated you badly or abandoned you.

People should know never ever to mess with a Scorpio. You sting.

Sagittarius

November 23 to December 21

You’re probably all still pals because you’re simply too adorable, and too much fun, to stay mad with for long.

That is until they discover (or, more likely, you blurt it out in passing conversation) how many other options you had on the go when they were with you.

Hate the game, not the player.

Capricorn

December 22 to January 21

You are way more sensitive and insecure than anyone (even a lover) realises, and you really brood over your exes, and overthink what went wrong, whether it was all on you, what you did or didn’t do, what they think of you, what they’ve said about you, and so on.

You cover up how much you analyse what other people think of you, and that goes double in romances. You often think the worst, and can pile on a heap of regret and self-loathing in the process.

Stop this. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Cap.

Aquarius

January 22 to February 19

You are not the most romantic or affectionate of the signs, Aquarius, and you don’t waste time dwelling on ‘what ifs’ or wondering what people who serve no purpose in your life anymore are up to.

You also don’t really care what other people think of you, so you’re not going to be obsessing what exes say, do, think, or believe.

You’re off and onto your next project before the door has even fully swung shut. The term ‘ghosting’ might well apply to your breakup MO.

Pisces

February 20 to March 20

Ugly-crying. Oh yes. The tears, the weeping, the begging and pleading to meet and just talk about stuff. You’ve done all of that, because you’re the most soft-hearted, passionate, loving, and caring sign of all, and you hate breakups.

If they have to happen at all, you want to stay friends and for no unkind things to ever be said.

Real life doesn’t usually conform to this ideal, though, and you end up getting heartbroken. Piscean exes need to be treated with kid gloves.
