Your Zodiac Sign’s Breakup Anthem

Music can evoke powerful emotions depending on the genre. If you just got dumped, music can play a massive role in your recovery. Some songs capture you with the melody or the beat while other times it can be the lyrics that attract you. Based on your zodiac sign, here are the songs I think best fit you after getting dumped.


“People Watching” by Conan Gray fits passionate, optimistic, and fiery Aries perfectly. After a breakup, Aries is feeling heartbroken, hopeful and angry all at once. While Aries may be slightly aggressive and very independent, Aries values love more than anything. While this song does focus on feeling alone, there is still a hint of hope for what is to come.


Taurus is not a fan of change and for this reason, it is not uncommon for Taurus to get back with an ex. Taurus is also a firm believer in allowing time to heal your wounds. “See You Later (ten years)” by Jenna Raine is the perfect song for Taurus to cry to while they are probably internalizing their pain.


Emotions are not the easiest thing for clever, humorous Gemini to understand. Gemini may feel like they are going crazy following a breakup due to the vast array of emotions they are experiencing at once. A post-breakup Gemini is probably in need of a song that they can laugh/cry/scream while driving past their ex’s house. This is why “Stupid Boys” by Cassidi is my number one recommendation for Gemini.


Breakups are very difficult for Cancer. At first, Cancer will struggle to understand that they are newly single and greatly miss their partner. Cancer will then get trapped in a spiral of sadness and just want to wallow for a while. So Cancer, while you try to figure out if your ex’s clothes still smell like them, try listening to “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” by Paloma Faith.


While Leo is stuck with the stereotype of being narcissistic and self-obsessed, Leo’s self-involvement usually manifests more as blaming themself. Following a breakup, Leo is wondering what they did wrong and why they were not enough. “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron captures Leo’s obsession with wishing they start over from the beginning.


Virgo does not want their ex to have the satisfaction of seeing them cry. Therefore, while it may take Virgo some time to move on, Virgo is doing the most they can to speed up the process. Listening to empowering songs like “Better Off” by Ariana Grande will help Virgo turn a breakup into self-care.


Libra is associated with Aphrodite, Goddess of love, so obviously Libra spirals after being dumped. So right after a breakup, Libra is not only mourning the loss of their person, but the loss of love and the loss of time they will never get back. Libra does move on fairly quickly, however (it depends on how long it takes them to develop a new crush). Libra’s breakup will mainly consist of angry crying. “Tears of Gold” by Faouzia will fit perfectly when Libra takes their nightly drive to blow off some steam.


Moving on is definitely not on Scorpio’s to-do list following a breakup. They may move on physically, find a new partner, but it will take quite a while for them to be at peace with the breakup. Scorpio will probably cry when they find the mug their ex used to drink out of every day, which is why “Ghost of You” by 5 Seconds of Summer matches Scorpio’s pain.


Fun-loving and positive Sagittarius is going to attempt to go through all five stages of grief in a few days. Sagittarius does not want to waste any more time on someone who could not appreciate them. So while Sagittarius is using their ex’s things to build a pyre, it is fitting for “Wasting All These Tears” by Cassadee Pope to be playing in the background.


It takes Capricorn a long time to open up to love and set logic aside to lead with their heart. So when someone breaks Capricorn’s heart, they lose attraction while still missing that person. Capricorn will miss the time they shared with someone and the feeling of being in love, but they will not genuinely want their ex back. “Somebody Else” by The 1975 wraps up all of Capricorn’s feelings and ties a bow on top.


Aquarius is logical and loves their freedom, so a breakup is not the end of the world for Aquarius. Aquarius is not emotionless and they probably spent a lot of time grieving in their head, but their healing process does not take forever. Aquarius will also probably convince themselves that their ex wants them back, but they are so past that. While you move on to bigger and better things, Aquarius, try listening to “Josh” by Peach PRC.


Pisces is going to need to have someone shut their phone off and confiscate it. Pisces will channel their sadness into obsession. Refreshing social media, checking profile updates, the whole package. Pisces will be the first one to see their ex’s new beau. This will inevitably lead to endless comparisons between themself and the new beau. Pisces, play “She’s Mine” by Lauren Weintraub while you are refreshing that Instagram profile.
