We all wonder about our exes, even if it is for a short period of time, and how they feel about the break-up regardless of who initiated it. Are they sad? Mad? Angry? Hurt? Happy? Sometimes we just wonder if we had any sort of effect on them, at least that rings true for me.
A lot of it depends on their personality as well. Do they hide their emotions? Do they cover up how they feel or let people see their true selves? That is where astrology and the signs can come into play.
For example, you have an Aries man who doesn’t like to lose at anything, ever. And to be honest, it doesn’t matter who broke up with who because Aries will look at it as a loss or failure no matter what. On the other hand, a male Libra will take a while to get over the breakup and not because of the emotional involvement he may have had or invested in the relationship. But because it reveals the negative traits he possesses behind the mask he wears all the time.
If you’re wondering about your ex and what he’s doing, how he was in the relationship, and how he’s handling the separation (or not handling it), read on!
Aries Ex-Boyfriend (March 21-April 19)
Did your Aries man try to mold you into his perfect person? Did he make sure you knew when you weren’t doing something right? He’s had his perfect mate clearly defined from a young age and will continue to try and mold you had you not broken up. But you did and how does he feel about it? He may try to contact you but usually not because he’s heartbroken or torn. He wants reassurance that on some level this was your fault so he doesn’t have to accept responsibility.
As an ex, there are two possibilities to how an Aries will act during a breakup. On one hand, the Aries man may suffer in pain of the loss of the relationship or you’ll just be another notch on his belt. He will make sure to rub it in when he is in another relationship or seeing someone else. Regardless of which path your ex-Aries decides to take, a breakup with an Aries man is never easy.
Taurus Ex-Boyfriend (April 20-May 20)
Oh, poor Taurus, you just want to wallow in your grief. True but it is only because you would rather be alone than start any confrontation with your ex. One of the reasons is that your ex already shattered your pride and dignity and you’d rather not risk any more damage to your self-image.
He will also be very honest about the relationship and he also won’t spread rumors or mess with your reputation either, which is a bonus! If you try to antagonize a male Taurus and push him to his limit, watch out for that temper, and don’t say I didn’t warn you!
What will you miss about the Taurus man? You’ll miss his performances in bed, to say the least. What the Taurus man lacked in romance was redeemed by how he was in bed. He usually flowers his significant others with compliments and boasts about you to everyone he knows and you’ll miss how that feels. You absolutely won’t miss his picking and choosing of what he feels like talking about and ignoring everything else. You also won’t have to deal with his excuses anymore.
Gemini Ex-Boyfriend (May 21-June 20)
At the beginning of the breakup, the male Gemini isn’t too sure how he feels about the situation. He’s unsure of exactly how he’ll manage without you but knows it’s possible. If your relationship with the male Gemini wasn’t very serious or a committed one, he won’t have a problem getting over it. If it was serious and a committed relationship, his depressed mood, and isolation are most likely legitimate.
The male Gemini will most likely not attempt to hurt you or ruin your reputation because that would cause him more pain and heartache. Depending on the seriousness of the relationship and the extent of the male Gemini’s depression may be leading him to believe you will come back.
You will miss the highly entertaining male Gemini as they are always up to something or wanting to explore and go on adventures. You’ll also miss the compliments the male Gemini showered you with consistently. You absolutely won’t miss his lack of ambition or drive. You won’t miss the constant flirting or him telling you about other women who were attractive or interesting.
Cancer Ex-Boyfriend (June 21-July 22)
One of the things you probably had trouble accepting in the relationship was the devotion the male Cancer had to his friends and family. He wouldn’t understand why on earth you would ever be mad that he spent an entire night with his female friend while she cried on his shoulder because of a breakup. He would often get confused as to why you would be upset at things that were totally normal to get upset over. While the male Cancer can be sentimental and sensitive as they are well known for, they can also be the opposite of that and be very cruel to their exes.
The male Cancer may carry over his tender and sweet characteristics into the breakup but not for reasons you may think. This is a manipulative tactic to get your continued loyalty while protecting yourself from engaging in any unwanted confrontation.
You’ll miss his fun-loving way of life as well as his ability to make you feel safe, comfortable, and secure. You’ll miss his classic romantic abilities and how he used to make you feel like the only person in the room. You most definitely won’t miss his clinginess. You also won’t miss how difficult it was to talk to the male Cancer as he became defensive more often than not.
Leo Ex-Boyfriend (July 23-August 22)
The male Leo is not someone you particularly want as an ex. It damages their pride and bruises their ego. If you’re not miserable about the breakup, he will wonder why and if you are miserable about it, he’ll go boast about it to his friends. He does possess warm-hearted and genuine characteristics but the male Leo is bitter in the breakup especially if you are the one who initiated it.
To the male Leo, there’s always a winner and a loser. Because he doesn’t know which one he is, it’s eating him alive. Things are never simple when it comes to a male Leo so don’t think the breakup will be any different. He’ll stay in contact for a while and he’ll attempt to be a ghost who haunts you in your sleep.
You will miss how warm and cuddly the Leo man was. You’ll miss the unconditional support he provided you and the encouragement to fulfill your dreams and passions. You will absolutely never miss the chaotic drama and attention-seeking of a Leo man. You also won’t miss his ego one bit.
Virgo Ex-Boyfriend (August 23-September 22)
You may have thought someone hated you in the past, but nothing comes close to the male Virgo’s hatred for you. He will throw everything you’ve ever told him in your face and attempt to make you feel bad or weak. He has no regard for your feelings or intentions…he has a one-track mind when it comes to breakups. The Virgo man who once believed you could be something better for yourself now feels there’s a small chance at you actually succeeding in doing something to better yourself.
He is still passionate about the progress you make toward your goals or lack of it. The Virgo male will not get all gung-ho about your successes but if he knows you’re failing at something, he’ll be thrilled. On the upside of things, your relationship with the male Virgo may have taught you a lot about yourself and relationships as well as becoming a stronger person because of it.
You’ll miss the annoying qualities because, being insightful as you are, you knew he was hiding his insecurities. You won’t miss having to break down endless walls because you realized those defensive walls were never fully coming down. You saved yourself a lot of energy and stress!
Libra Ex-Boyfriend (September 23-October 22)
You may not have any friends in the end because the Libra male has absolutely no problem turning all of your friends against you. He’ll want to isolate you and make you feel alone. Underneath the cruelty, there is a deeper reason as to why he wants you to be alone…he is scared that he has made a mistake. The perfect mask he puts on for the world to see is threatened if he believes he’s made a mistake.
It takes a while for Librans to get over a breakup but not because he’s emotionally attached or involved. It takes a while for Librans to get over breakups because breakups bring up all of their negative traits rather than hiding behind the hundreds of masks as they usually do.
The male Libran will be a little paranoid seeing as you are free to do what you want and will wonder what you are up to at times. He often wonders if you’re talking badly about him or making him out to be a bad person.
You’ll miss the way he looked deeply into your eyes and always had the right thing to say at any given moment. You will definitely not miss his manipulation and ability to lie about anything with a straight face and minimal remorse.
Scorpio Ex-Boyfriend (October 23-November 21)
He would either make you feel on top of the world and like nothing can stop you two or completely shun you like you’ve committed a heinous crime. The Scorpio man won’t know whether to approach you or ignore you. He’ll find himself torn between wanting to do one and knowing he should do the other.
He will either try to win you back or teach you a lesson. There is no middle ground for them. If he’s secure, he’ll most likely ignore you. On the other hand, an insecure Scorpion may have you pulling out all of your hair. It all depends on who ended the relationship, why it ended and if there was closure. If there wasn’t closure, he’ll make sure there will be.
You’ll miss his drive and motivation that once enticed you. He took care of you in questionable moments when you thought you’d never make it through. You will not miss his stalking behaviors and tendencies. It’s like he doesn’t realize you knew when you two were together that he followed you around. What scared him the most was deep down inside, he knew you had free choice to do what you please and that terrified him.
Sagittarius Ex-Boyfriend (November 22-December 21)
He won’t be thinking about you. And let’s just say that he is thinking about you, it’s not for reasons you would expect such as missing you. He’ll use manipulative tactics to forget about you like sleeping around or s**ually releasing some other way. He rarely accepts that he has done anything wrong. Unfortunately, it never seemed to be about you and what you wanted or needed.
If he is “sorry”, it’s usually not because of something he did. Usually, it is about the consequences that weren’t worth it or that what he did wasn’t as fun as he thought it’d be but won’t be sorry because he hurt you. If you see him out and about, his simple flirtations and friendliness may bring out some suspicions about betrayal.
He was probably a hell of a lot of fun to be with as they usually are. You loved his people-personality and he’d converse anywhere, anytime. You won’t miss wondering if you were the only one he was sharing his bed with. He never compromised and if you two did reach some agreement, you were giving in more than he was.
Capricorn Ex-Boyfriend (December 22-January 19)
You feel a bit freer and more in control of your life now that your Capricorn ex is out of the picture. Capricorns have a strong sense of being in control. It’s their way or gets kicked to the curb. Capricorn men are very critical of people and that was no exception for you. You are probably looking forward to doing what you want to do without having him tell you what you’re doing wrong. You could never do it right according to him. He was strongly opinionated, even when their opinion wasn’t asked for! The Capricorn man as an ex has a bitterness that won’t be shown for quite some time, if ever. Just be prepared for it.
He was a perfectionist and wanted you to be one as well. The problem here is…no one is perfect and therefore, you were always going to fail when it came to him. Capricorn men won’t admit to anyone how much you really meant to them and try to win you back. He probably won’t be showing much emotion, not like he ever displayed too much of it.
He did provide you with stability and strength in times of need. You will miss that he truly knew exactly when to show emotion and when to step away. You will not miss his stubbornness. You also won’t miss that he was always right or that his way was the best way.
Aquarius Ex-Boyfriend (January 20-February 18)
Were you tired of hearing how awesome he was? Lucky for you, that’s over now. He was highly motivated and had drive but at your expense. As a now ex, his pride is damaged and his ego has been shattered. Depending on the circumstances, he’ll react to how much his pride has been shattered.
He will be very careful around you. That doesn’t mean he won’t do everything in his power to take you down behind your back. He may spread rumors about you. Just when you think he is gone for good, he’ll show up. Don’t ever think he won’t come back around.
You will miss the adventures you two used to go on. His spontaneity was one of the most attractive things about him. You fed off of his strength and confidence as it was infectious. You won’t miss his self-centeredness or that he was only there for you when it either benefited him or was convenient at the time.
Pisces Ex-Boyfriend (February 19-March 20)
How good was he at playing the victim? Even when something was undoubtedly his fault, he could somehow twist it and make himself the victim. It’s like a craft for them that they’ve mastered. He is not totally unaware that he is manipulative to get what he wants, but he doesn’t understand that you don’t have to play games to get something.
As an ex, don’t think he will be any different. He will exaggerate stories and make things out to be so awful no matter how it makes you look or what really happened. He centers himself around being the victim, like a helpless puppy. As an ex, he’ll still expect you to consider his needs and wants.
You’ll miss his sweet and sensitive characteristics but just remember, manipulation is his master craft. You won’t miss the childish games he played with your mind, that’s for sure. The thing you won’t miss the most is the weekly pity parties he likes to throw himself whenever he couldn’t accept responsibility in a situation that hurt or upset him.
In conclusion, every person is unique in how they handle breakups and as previously noted, personality has a lot to do with it. Introverts and extroverts deal with things differently as well as those who are sensitive and those who aren’t. Since our sun sign symbolizes the basic characteristics of our personality, it makes sense to use it to our advantage.
This doesn’t mean that every guy will act or do the same thing based on their sign. There are exceptions to all rules and context needs to be taken into consideration as well. The overall theme for each sign will be generally consistent even if the way they act upon it may be different.
