How to Get Through a Breakup, Based on Your Element

Air Signs: Aquarius, Libra, Gemini

Social networking is going to be the key to your success when it comes to love Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini.

It’s time to get out of your comfort zones, and mingle, even if you are just on the heels of a breakup. You don’t need to head out with the intention to find your soul mate but head out into the crowds with the intention of feeling better and having fun instead.

Surrounding yourself with others, especially people that care about you and want to see you happy, is exactly what you need right now. Air signs are very playful and optimistic, so use these strengths to your advantage when navigating a tough-love situation.

Remember, staying in isn’t going to fix your sorrows. Get out there and use your fantastic communication skills to show the world just how awesome you are. Your new beginning is waiting!

Air Sign Strengths:

  • Playful
  • Optimistic
  • Humanitarian

Water Signs: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio

Water signs, oh Water Signs. Our dear Scorpios, Pisces, and Cancers, are the ones that feel the most wounded, attacked, and rejected in the line of a breakup fire. Even if they are the ones doing the breaking up!

This can be a sensitive bunch, and if you fall into this category, then you know what we’re talking about. You will be tempted to retreat to your caves and your shells with your proverbial boxes of tissues, and spend your days wallowing through chocolate and movies that are horribly wrong for you.

This is actually not a bad idea, and you won’t feel “normal” if you don’t engage in your standard breakup routine. But this plan is not going to help you create the new beginnings you want if you stick to it forever. It’s time to romance yourself, Water signs!

That’s right. It’s time to get out a little bit more, but not with a partner or with a group of friends. Pay the world a little visit and focus on recharging, rebooting and cleansing your soul. Your heart is more tender than most, so take the extra time that you need to recover from a breakup.

Have your cleanse, in whatever way you want to do it, and then perform one baby step at a time for putting yourself out there. You won’t be ready to love again and launch those new beginnings until you are feeling cleansed from the inside out.

Water Sign Strengths:

  • Loving
  • Artsy
  • Passionate

Fire Signs: Sagittarius, Leo, Aries

There is a lot of heat and passion still burning for you, Fire signs. Whether you are an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, you are feeling the flames. One important thing for you to do in the wake of a breakup or divorce, is to put all of the “bad” in the past.

For you Fire signs, exes have a way of bouncing back your way, so what you need to do is leave the past behind, and only focus on the good ahead. It may feel like the end of the world right now, but this is only just the ending of one chapter for you. For you, breakups are only painful for a short time. Continue to focus on positive vibes by reciting mantras or affirmations when you feel yourself moving backwards into negativity or pain.

When you focus on good thoughts, the person you are feeling “sore” over will be seen in a new light.You may or may not get back together. If you do, the new beginning will seem refreshed and rebooted. And if you don’t, there is another new beginning ahead.

Fire Sign Strengths:

  • Exuberant
  • Adventurous
  • Fast-moving

Earth Signs: Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo

Earth signs are all about feeling secure and stable, and usually practical as well. It can really get you down in the dumps if you are feeling a little dumped. All of that stability you were hoping and planning for may seem a little off kilter right now.

That’s okay! You are being sent this test for a reason, to either show you what isn’t working, or to show you what will. Step by step movements are called for now. Make sure to not rush into anything heated or emotionally charged right after a breakup. What you need to do, Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn, is to spend some time reassessing what is really going on.

What is at the root of the problem here? If you were given the opportunity, what would you do differently the next time around? You are good with lists, so make your pros and cons list and really reflect on your previous relationship. This is a good time for you to do what you do best, strategize, and become the CEO of your love life.

Who is in charge here? You are. You have an adventure in romance right around the corner. It may be the person you think of most, or it may be someone entirely new. Slow and steady is going to win the race for you on this one Earth signs.

Earth Sign Strengths:

  • Loyal
  • Hard-working
  • Nurturing
