Here are the zodiac signs that will break your heart, ranked from most to least likely.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is always going to put their needs and wants above anybody else’s. If you need them to stick around for a while, then that’s too bad, because their travel plans have already been made or they’ve already decided on accomplishing a certain goal for themselves by such and such date.
They’re very self-centered and they’re always their own first priority. What’s worse is after they break your heart, they’re not going to understand why you’re experiencing so much pain. Sagittarians aren’t known for their empathy or being able to see things from someone else’s point of view, so they’ll wonder why you don’t just get over it.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarians don’t even have to break up with you to break your heart. They’ll flirt with other people right in front of their partners, totally aware of what they’re doing and then in practically the same breath, they’ll tell you that they love you and never want to leave you.
When they do break up with you, they’ll do it with a feeling of intellectual superior like you couldn’t possibly understand their big brain needs. If you want to get back at them, try to have them end things with you in a public place — emotional displays make them very uncomfortable and if you start crying and yelling at them, they may not get why you’re so angry but they will have some regrets about doing it, even if those regrets are about not being able to control your outburst.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
You’ll never know exactly where you stand with a Gemini. One moment, they are showering you with love and flowers; the next, they seem to have forgotten you completely. You never get your footing with a Gemini.
While it may not come as a total surprise when they break up with you, it will still hurt horribly. You thought they really understood you and that they never had such deep conversations as they had for you. They’re smart and they’re charming but they’re also deadly when it comes to your heart. They are more likely to ghost you and then formally break up with you, which will hurt even more because, with ghosting, there’s always room for a little hope.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are super-sweet when they’re into you but when they’re not, a whole other side comes out. They’ll hurt you in a whole bunch of f*cked up ways and then turn around and play the victim, making you feel bad for telling them off.
They won’t admit to any wrongdoing and by the time they’re done with their denial, you’ll be a sobbing mess wondering if it really was your fault the whole time. You’ll be stunned at how cold and unfeeling a Pisces can become. Once they’ve made you the bad guy in the relationship, you can bet they’ll use it in their art some way, making your heartbreak live on well after the relationship has died.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo will break your heart by making you feel small and insignificant. Leos need to be the center of attention and when they’re into you, you’ll have a place right alongside them. However, when a Leo is no longer interested in you, they’ll simply push you further and further into the background until you feel as if your world and theirs are two separate entities.
When a Leo breaks up with you, it can be a crushing blow to your self-esteem and you may question your own worth. Don’t let Leo crush you — you’re stronger than that. You wouldn’t have taken on a Leo relationship if you didn’t have some strength and power of your own, you just need to be able to access it.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
For a sign that can be so lovely and wonderful, Taurus can be brutal, cold and cruel. You think everything is going great when all of a sudden, they turn on you. Taurus can be completely backstabbing cold, and while we don’t like to say evil, they certainly seem to be able to access a whole lot of negativity and hurt when they want to do some damage.
If they decide they’re done or that you betrayed them in some way, it’s impossible to change their mind. If you think of the amount of determination they use just by being their stubborn selves and translate that into the energy they use in a breakup, you can get an idea of the kind of devastation they create.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries fall in love fast and fall out of love even faster. When they’re done with you, you’ll wonder what it was that you did wrong and what it was that spurred the breakup in the first place. Aries don’t linger over their actions, they’ll dump you and move on, and that’s what will hurt the most: that feeling that they never cared that deeply about you in the first place.
Don’t make the mistake of engaging them in a post-breakup discussion because you’ll just be opening yourself up for a whole lot of hurt. When provoked, Aries can be horrifically blunt and they have no problem tear you down, bit by bit.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
“To thine own self be true… and anybody who gets in the way of that, screw ’em,” should be Capricorn’s motto. If your ideas of what a relationship looks like don’t meld with Capricorn’s, they’ll dump you without a backward glance.
They can be hugely inflexible and they aren’t big on compromise when applied to their personal life. It’s not that they’re hard-hearted, it’s that they’re terrified of being hurt themselves and they’d rather dump you before you have a chance to dump them.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios feel emotions very deeply and when they finally commit to someone, they fully intend for their relationship to last for a long while. However, if a Scorpio is hurt, they will lash out at you in a way that’s positioned to do the most damage.
They have an instinct for what hurts people the most, and they know your weaknesses and secret fears and those are what they’re going to zero in on. If you hurt or betray them, they’ll focus in on coming up with various hurtful ways to make you pay. A wounded Scorpio is vicious, so watch out.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo will break your heart by zeroing in on every little thing you did wrong throughout the relationship and throughout your life. Virgos can be extremely critical and when their laser-like focus falls on you, watch out because they’re going to destroy your self-esteem, self-confidence, and feelings of self-worth.
They think that they’re not coming from a place of pain but that they’re telling you things you should know so that in the future, you’ll be a better person and you’ll have better relationships. If you can survive a tearing down done by a Virgo, you can survive anything.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras don’t want to hurt other people so when they do it’s usually a reaction to them being hurt. They tend to go all in on a relationship too quickly and when things start to get real, they decide they need to get out. They’re also a sign that prefers ghosting to actually having a face to face breakup.
They hate conflict and breaking up with someone may make Libra feel guilty or bad, so they think just slowly disappearing is the best method for the disillusion of a relationship. However, ghosting can be the most painful thing ever, especially when it finally hits you that the relationship is over and that Libra didn’t have the guts to tell you in person.
12. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers would rather do anything than break someone’s heart. If they do hurt someone, they feel terrible about it and will think about it for a long time — it may even prevent them from getting into another relationship for a long time. If they break up with you, they’ll definitely try to stay friends with you because they’d feel terrible if you hated them.
The most common reason for Cancer to break up with someone is if their partner didn’t get along with their family because, for a Cancer, family always comes first. They can get a new partner but not a new family.
