Who can predict what kind of foe we will face in our ex during a break-up and divorce? Divorce is such an other-worldly and abnormal experience, as it is; so, why not turn to the signs of the zodiac to see what the stars have to say about the cosmic characteristics of our ex?
What do you think? Might astrology have your ex’s divorce personality captured, and could we actually learn more about who they are and what we can expect?
Aries March 21-April 20. If your ex is a ram, you may have once admired his energetic, adventurous, and quick-witted nature. However, you are likely in the midst of seeing the dark side of his personality, which includes a selfish streak, quick temper, impulsiveness, impatience, and just enough of a daredevil attitude to spell trouble! This is one ex who is likely to bail on a relationship if he becomes bored, or he’s not very likely to put his all into trying to repair relationship problems.
Taurus April 21-May 21. Once loving, patient, reliable, and warm-hearted, the bull may turn his horns on you and become jealous, possessive, resentful, greedy, and self-indulgent! This stubborn guy is all about himself, once he becomes determined. His selfish and controlling characteristics probably played a large part in your split, and he may have a hard time relaxing his grip on you even after he has decided to move on to someone new!
Gemini May 22-June 21. The twin is known for adaptability, wit, communicativeness, and versatility. Once this ex feels slighted by their partner, the sometimes-duplicitous nature may take over, meaning that he may don a superficial facade to mask behind the scenes plans. Once a Gemini is done with you, their adaptive qualities make it all too easy to turn off their feelings for you and cut ties!
Cancer June 22-July 22. The crab is reputed to be cautious, shrewd, emotional, intuitive, and imaginative. That shell makes him very protective, and his claws may make letting go of you extra hard! You may find this crustaceous ex to be very touchy and moody, overly emotional, and generally very difficult to get along with during your separation. This gives new meaning to the term “crabby!”
Leo July 23-August 21. The king of the jungle probably became ruler of your heart through his initial generosity, faithful, loving, and warm demeanor. When things go awry with the zodiac lion, expect that kingly attitude to manifest through bossiness, intolerance, intervening in your business, and a pompous and patronizing ex. Good luck to you with an ex who can’t mind his own business and thinks he’s superior in every way!
Virgo August 22-September 23. One might think that an astrological sign dubbed “the maiden” would be tolerable as an ex. Although the Virgo is recognized for modesty, shyness, and practicality, this ex is also a worry wart, extra fussy, and can be an intolerable perfectionist. Perhaps Virgo is your soon-to-be-ex because he is often harsh, overly critical, and must have everything just right? There’s no pleasing some people!
Libra September 24-October 23. Libra, the scales, is famed for diplomacy and seeking peace and idealistic notions. The problem is, a Libra ex is so charming and flirtatious that he gets himself into trouble because he’s very self-indulgent. What’s worse, he can easily be enticed into temptation and uses his easy going and sociable personality to win others over. Who could imagine the faults of your Casanova ex when he seems so sweet and like such a catch?
Scorpio October 24-November 22. No surprise that a scorpion could be exciting, determined, powerful, passionate, and a very “take charge” sort of presence! What only a Scorpio’s partner can tell us, however, is how challenging their behavior can be to endure! The former mate of a Scorpio is fortunate to survive the sting of his jealous, resentful, obsessive, and secretive side! The Scorpio ex has many of the classic traits of narcissism, including that magnetic personality that draws a victim in before the kill!
Sagittarius November 23-December22. Many are lured in to the archer’s line of sight by his good-humored, carefree, optimistic, and freedom-loving nature. He is so confident that everything will be alright, that he is often careless and overly optimistic. More often than not, his tactless and straightforward words arrow straight to the heart, which he is likely to laugh away. Be prepared for his irresponsibility to land your shared interests in hot water because he isn’t likely to have a rainy-day plan, take things as seriously as he needs to, or be accountable when needed. You may feel like you’re more mommy than wife, even after the split!
Capricorn December 23-January 20. The sea goat is a mythical beast, as represented by the odd mix of personality traits he may possess. Much like a grumpy old goat, the Capricorn ex can carry a grudge, be very pessimistic, pinch every penny, and have a fatalistic view of life. The aquatic side of this sign means there may also be tendencies for patience, humor, discipline, and being extra careful. Tip toe carefully around the pleasant side, or be prepared to argue about every dime of child support or point in your divorce agreement ‘til the end of time!
Aquarius January 21- February 19. An Aquarius can go with the flow of water in a friendly, original, honest, and independent manner. Others enjoy his honest, loyal, and independent way; but, his ex has learned how unemotional, unpredictable, and detached he can be. Just like the ebb and flow of the waves, he may be here today, then gone in the next moment, with barely a gaze at what he left behind!
Pisces February 20-March 20. Represented by two fish, this ex might be surprisingly sensitive, compassionate, kind, sympathetic, and intuitive. Then, all at once, he flip-flops and shows himself to be secretive, vague, weak-willed, and easily led. Much like trying to hold a wet fish in one’s hands, he becomes an escapist and a master of changing moods, topics, and loyalties. He tends to absorb the emotions and opinions of others around him too much, then finds he suddenly needs to disappear to distance himself from others. Watch out, you might get ghosted!
Do the stars hold the answers to who our exes are and what we might encounter from them during divorce? Many have turned to astrology to decipher the mysteries of life since ancient times; so, maybe there really is something to the Zodiac of Exes!
