The single life can be a lot of fun.
A lot of zodiac signs long to find their soul mate, and although there might be someone out there that is perfectly designed for your horoscope sign, you may have to first find who you’re incompatible with astrologically.
Breakups are hard and they can make you feel sad and lost for a while, and blah, blah, blah. We allll know what a breakup is like and how it can be hard to cope with and all that.
But what about single life? Single life is AMAZING. It really, really is.
Yes, being in a relationship is amazing too, especially if you’re with someone you really care about, but after you get over your breakup and start getting used to the single life, there really is nothing better than getting back to what matters most: YOU!
If you’re a zodiac sign who loves love, you might think you’re going to be lonely and a hot mess after you break up with your S.O. but let me tell you something — literally no one cares if you do things on your own.
You can still go out to bars with your friends and to the movies alone (you weren’t talking to your man during the movie anyway, so who cares, right?), and nothing has changed.
Except for the fact that you’re now unattached.
But that doesn’t mean you have to jump right back into a relationship or even badmouth your ex, even if your horoscope says love is coming soon.
Enjoying the single life now means you get to be selfish and worry about you and only you – and for someone who just looooves thinking all about myself, this sounds like a pretty good thing.
But, while we all deal with breakups differently, we also ease back into the single life differently, too.
Depending on your personality you might be more into getting serious about your work life or you might download Tinder and see what all the fuss is about.
But your personality isn’t the only thing that can affect how you spend your time being single.
According to astrology, the month you break up with someone can play a big role in how you handle the single life.
And trust me when I say that every single zodiac month here is positive – remember, this is all about the person you are after you cry into your Ben and Jerry’s and try to drunk dial your ex more than once.
And if you’re still not convinced that the single life is for you, just remember that there was probably a good reason why you broke up with your S.O. in the first place.
Maybe you fell out of love, maybe you caught him cheating, or maybe you just don’t get along anymore.
And while you’re getting used to this newly single life of yours, it can be a long-term thing or it can be just until you get back on your feet and feel more confident about yourself.
But either way, being single should be about learning to put yourself first and take care of your own needs without feeling guilty or selfish (even though it’s not ALL bad to be a little selfish).
So, keep reading to find out what your breakup month says about your new single life, according to astrology, and get out there and live your best (single) life!
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Breaking up during the Aries season means that you are in for a lot of fun and excitement. It’s almost as if the Aries spirit fills you up and makes you pumped for life again; in other words, you can definitely feel a change in the air during this time.
The biggest change you’ll feel is more optimism for the future. All of a sudden, it feels like you’re able to see what you want a little more clearly and you can’t wait to get started.
The Aries season also helps you get back some of that independent nature. It’s not so much that you turn into an “I don’t need no man” personality, but more so that you don’t mind doing things alone again and you actually welcome “me time.”
Your way of thinking might change, too, and you might find yourself wondering how you were able to do so many things with another person when being alone is actually bomb.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
You already know what it feels like to be loyal to the person you’re dating, but when you break up during Taurus season, you really understand the importance of that even more.
Before, you might have had to cancel on your friends in order to spend more time with your man, but now that you’re single, you go back to being the friend that says yes to literally anything your BFF wants to do because that’s when you’re happiest.
You also tend to go back to the basics this time of year; it’s almost like you press reset on your whole life. You revel in the little things that make you happy (like Slurpees at 7-11) and you learn how to spread the love evenly between yourself, your family, and your friends.
When you break up during the Taurus season, it’s almost as if you start appreciating the little things in life and learn how to relax more.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini season will light a fire in you and when you break up during this time of year, and you can definitely feel the electric charge inside you telling you to get up and GO.
You can almost guarantee that you’ll feel a switch in your brain that changes you from being content in a relationship to wanting to do all the craziest, wildest things you can.
During this season, your main goal is to live life to the fullest. That means scratching things off your bucket list, going to see your favorite band in concert, and doing pretty much anything else that keeps that smile on your face and your adrenaline up.
You want to make the most of your single life, yes, but you also want to prove that you can have just as much fun on your own as you can in a relationship.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
You might not be up for doing something wild and crazy when you break up during Cancer season, but that doesn’t
mean you won’t be doing some big things for yourself, either.
One of the most common thoughts you’ll have during this transition time is thoughts of reflection. You might try to pick apart your relationship and try to figure out where it all went wrong, but not because you miss your ex.
This reflection is mainly to help you forgive yourself for the past; past mistakes, past arguments, and sometimes even exes in the past. Once you can let go of the past, you can start taking care of yourself. Self-care is going to be HUGE for you during Cancer season.
You’ll finally learn how to make time for yourself, including cashing in all those Groupons, taking up yoga, and starting every day with a “Good morning, beautiful!”
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Breaking up during Leo season brings out your bubbliest, most fun personality. Like Leo, you tap into your flirty side and use it to make new friends, find someone cute to chat up, and even get more than a few free drinks at the bar (because everyone loves a single girl).
It’s safe to say that if you break up during this time of year, all thoughts of your ex go out the window along with the things he left behind.
The only thing on your mind now is making sure that you have a good time, no matter what. A good time with friends, with a blind date, with your family — it doesn’t matter.
The one thing that DOES matter is that you live it up to the fullest and make everyone not invited jealous by posting on Instagram. You want to know what it feels like to be the center of attention for once, so go and get yours, girl!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
A break up during Virgo season can bring about a lot of conflicting emotions, but as you learn to love the single life, you start finding better mental clarity and your goals for the future start to become more defined.
As this part of your life ends, you dive head first into the next part of your life, which tends to be your work for this time of the year.
Your main focus during Virgo season is to get ahead in your professional life. That means looking for ways to prove you’re promotion material, wowing your colleagues with your determination, and channeling your inner girl boss.
You can feel something important brewing inside of you and you want to create something big for yourself; something you can look back on later and be proud of the drive and hard work you put into it.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
A breakup during Libra season is like finally bringing some peace back into your life. While being in a relationship may have been fun, it was definitely off-kilter and you probably felt like your schedule was too chaotic (at least, now you realize it was).
But with your new single life, you can finally find that balance that has been missing from your life, especially when it comes to work and play.
The one thing you love most about the single life, especially if you break up during Libra season, is the fact that you can do whatever you want without having to check in with someone.
You can work late to get a project done, or go out and not come home until 3 in the morning, and not have to worry about anyone but yourself. Plus, you will now really think about what makes you happy and how to find lasting happiness in life.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
You know that feeling you get after you break up with someone when all you want to do is go wild and do something you’ve never done before?
That is the effect of becoming single during Scorpio season. Instead of forgiving your ex or focusing on work, you want to do something totally crazy and off the wall, like dye your hair blue or get a tattoo. And hey, with that Scorpio spirit running through you, why not?
Breaking up during Scorpio season brings out the passion and intensity that is usually hidden deep inside of you. You’re going to feel like every day is a new adventure and that you have to make the most of it before you jump into bed at night.
And speaking of the bedroom, you might feel sexier than usual and want to show yourself off, and maybe even take someone home. Yep, the biggest task on your mind right now is to get laid.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 19)
Break up during the Sagittarius season and your mind will start to race with all of the possibilities life can offer you now that you’re single again.
One of the biggest things you’ll find yourself wanting to do is go off on your own and do your own thing for a change. In the past, you had to take your partner’s wants and needs into account, but with a new single life comes a new mindset.
There might be a lot of different thoughts running through your head during this time, but the most important one is probably getting comfortable being on your own again.
When you were in a relationship, you felt like you lost a little part of your personal identity, and now, this time of year is going to help you get to know yourself on a more personal basis and really love who you are.
CAPRICORN (December 20 – January 19)
Breaking up isn’t a huge loss to you, especially during the Capricorn season, because now you feel like you can really do something important with your time.
It’s not so much that your relationship was holding you back, but that you felt like you had to put some things on hold to make room for more “couple-y” things. But as a newly single person, you can get back to what’s most important: you.
Chances are, you want to roll your sleeves up and get back to work, but your professional life isn’t the only thing you want to work on. When you lose something like a relationship, you have this feeling like you need to replace that hole with something meaningful.
So, try your hand at something big and complex, like inventing something or taking on a freelance project, to show that taking some time off hasn’t made you soft.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You may be feeling a lot of mixed emotions if you break up during the Aquarius season, which can really mess with your mind.
On the one hand, you hate the fact that you’ve lost a friend and a partner — and maybe, if it was a really deep love, even a best friend (which is saying something for you).
On the other, you now get to think about what you want and who you really want to be before you dive back into a relationship.
All of that aside, you aren’t one to dwell on the past and your ex too much. What’s done is done and you definitely
feel like the best is still yet to come.
When you go through a breakup during this time of year, things around you (like the weather) tend to remind you that good things are coming if you are patient enough to wait. You feel like bringing back that positivity and learning to be your own best friend again.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
A breakup during the Pisces season may make you feel a little bit emotional, but you probably feel like it’s a good thing to get it all out now so you can start living your best life again.
For you, a break up has a spiritual meaning for you. It’s a time to shed your old self and try something totally different and a little scary. If being single is scary, embrace it. It’ll open your eyes to something bigger.
This time of the year can bring out a lot of feelings for you, so try to translate that into something tangible to remind you that life and love are journeys.
Get in touch with your inner creativity by putting all of your thoughts and emotions into art, poetry, or even by modifying your appearances. If you’ve always wanted to learn something new — like taking up the guitar or taking a cooking class — now would be the perfect time.
