It seems that 2020 has been the year of breakups, with millions of relationships being tested in lockdowns all over the world. And what do we do when we’re going through a breakup? We listen to music for a song to relate to, to cry to, to help us move on.
It’s no secret that each star sign handles breakups differently. Some of us hit denial mode and try to reclaim our love; some of us can move on quickly; and some of us feel we can’t move on at all.
So how does each star sign deal with their breakups and what would be their breakup anthem? PsychicWorld polled 2199 people on their star signs and how they act and feel during a breakup. These are their responses and the corresponding breakup songs:
Aries – Truth Hurts, by Lizzo: This star sign made it clear they would rather do the dumping than be dumped. They can move on fast and can be very competitive when it comes to who’s over who first.
Taurus – Say Something, by A Great Big World: These April/May babies are hopeless romantics, and however painful it may be, they will fight for their relationship until the bitter end.
Gemini – All Too Well, by Taylor Swift: It seems Geminis will quite happily edit their breakup into a sad drama, but only as a coping mechanism.
Cancer – Million Reasons, by Lady Gaga: This star sign will hold on to whatever they can to keep the relationship alive. It will take a lot for a Cancer to decide it’s time to call it quits, but when they do, you’ve lost them for ever.
Leo – Everytime, by Britney Spears: Leos appear to have the hardest time dealing with a breakup and find the whole ordeal a heart-wrenching experience.
Virgo – What Now, by Rihanna: These end-of-winter babies prefer to avoid conflict with their partners and find it particularly hard to move on.
Libra – Someone Like You, by Adele: This star sign would rather suggest taking a break when it comes to turmoil in the relationship, but when the relationship does eventually come to an end, they would rather end on good terms.
Scorpio – Josslyn, by Olivia O’Brien: Unfortunately for Scorpios, breakups can trigger control issues and they can occasionally obsess over their ex before eventually moving on.
Sagittarius – I Have Nothing, by Whitney Houston: Sagittarians have it hard when it comes to ending relationships and saying goodbye and sometimes make it their mission to reclaim love after it’s over.
Capricorn – Thank U, Next, by Ariana Grande: If you break up with this star sign, expect a clean and healthy split because Capricorns know when to accept the breakup and move on. They’d rather accept reality than delude themselves.
Aquarius – Hurt, by Christina Aguilera: When it comes to breakups, Aquarians will obsess and overanalyse everything in the lead-up to the breakup and will most likely need the most support moving forward.
Pisces – Heavy, by Anne-Marie: Pisceans are more likely to drift from their partners instead of sorting out issues due to them not dealing well with these types of situations.
Quite frankly, Mornington Peninsula Magazine can’t believe there’s no sign of J.D. Blackfoot’s 1975 classic Flushed You From the Toilets of My Heart, but perhaps those stars are yet to align.
