Even though there's no tried-and-tested formula to cure a broken heart, your zodiac sign says a lot about how you're going to deal with a breakup. Whether you'll sob for weeks, head-out for a holiday, look for someone new, or bust your ex's head wide open...your sign can play a big role here.

Here take a look on how you'll handle (or already handling) a heartbreak based on your zodiac sign...

1. Aries: Strong-Headedly

(March 21st to April 19th​)

Aries love the adrenaline rush of a new relationship, but get a li'l bored once the honeymoon period is over. Once they decide to break up, they make sure to stick to their decision, and even cut off all contacts from their ex. If they've been dumped, they're cool enough to bounce back and start exploring new things to divert their attention from it.

2. Taurus: With Forgiveness

(April 20th to May 20th)

They're extremely patient beings, and will probably think a zillion times before calling it quits. If they've been betrayed, they may take quite some time to come out of the trauma and find it difficult to trust someone again. But eventually, they make their peace with the situation— thanks to their forgiving nature. Taureans are honest and straight forward, once they decide to break up, they always stick to their decision.

3. Gemini: They Flake Out

(May 21st to June 20th)

Geminis are smart (and fun) personalities who can hide their emotions behind a smiling face. They may show a dual nature during a breakup. If they're involved in a serious relationship, they may find it difficult to recover after a breakup, and may keep brooding about what went wrong. On the other hand, they also have the tendency to be unfaithful, so don't be shocked if you find them lying about their ex-partner, or in bed with somebody else after some time!

4. Cancer: Emotionally

(June 21st to July 22nd)

Cancer is a sensitive sign, and hence a Cancerian going through a breakup spends a lot of time sulking, and analysing things. They try not to display their emotions, and keep everything to themselves. Plus, they sometimes feel they're not being loved enough, and become clingy if partner seems disinterested in the relationship.

5. Leo: With a Self-Serving Bias

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Leos are egoistic people and can breakup if their pride gets wounded. They're sometimes too proud to admit what they've done , and on the other hand, expect the partner to apologise for every li'l thing. Once they decide to end a relationship, they stick to their call, and assume their ex would eventually return to them. If cheated, they are very prone to taking revenges.

6. Virgo: Pragmatically

(August 23rd to September 22nd) 

Virgos are loyal, and loving partners. They're kinda drama-free people when it comes to dating. They'll put in their 100 percent to make a relationship work, but if it doesn't—they'll let it go. They're also pragmatic and if betrayed, they'll make sure not to get back to that partner ever again.

7. Libra: They Bounce Back

(September 23rd to October 22nd) 

Librans prefer long-term relationships, and are quite loyal to their partners. If  their partner is falling out of love, they'll try to make things work and save the relationship. When dumped, they initially feel demoralised and embarrassed, but  bounce back in due time and are okay with the idea of finding love again. However, if they decide to end a relationship, they'll do it in a dignified manner.

8. Scorpio: Emotionally

(October 23rd to November 21st) 

Scorpions are full of emotions— they love passionately, and even hate with no bounds! They generally prefer a very devoted partner, and hate being dominated in a relationship. If  they've been dumped, they may go a little crazy and even try to take revenge on their partners. They hardly ever forgive and forget!

9. Sagittarius: They Mask Their Pain

(November 22nd to December 21st) 

Sagittarians are  free spirits, who love to travel and explore new things. They crave for love and lust, and experiment with new things to keep the relationship alive. They generally break up with their parter if they turn out to be too demanding or possessive. When cheated on or dumped, they think about all the possible reasons that led to the situation, and they overcome it by jumping into another relationship to mask the pain. 

10. Capricorn: They Brood a Lot

(December 22nd to January 19th)

Capricorns are hard-working individuals who do anything and everything to maintain the perfect balance between their love, work and finances. They're quite family oriented, and hate the thought of a break up or divorce. While they'll go the extra mile to save the relationship, if their partner cheats or becomes intolerable, they make sure to severe all contact and never see them again.

11. Aquarius: They Become Cold

(January 20th to February 18th) 

Aquarians have little bit of dual personality— they can be devoted as well as
manipulative at the same time. They tend to stick to one partner at a time, and generally dominate the relationship. But if they're not happy, they'll manipulate their partners enough to get THEM to end it.

12. Pisces: They Become Sentimental

(February 19th to March 20th) 

They tend to drift from relationship to
relationship without a proper commitment or not even considering it a relationship. They would want to be with someone who can fulfil all their needs, and often get different needs fulfilled from different partners. If they're in a serious relationship, it's quite difficult to break up with them. They find it difficult to accept that the relationship is over, and like to believe everything will be okay one day.
