Party season is coming up, the invitations are piling in but you’ve got a nasty feeling in the pit of your stomach: You want to split from your partner but don’t know how to tell him -- especially during the holiday season. When it comes to breaking up, what’s your Sun sign’s approach?
Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius will reassure themselves that the truth is always best delivered straight up. What’s the point in lingering when the magic is gone? Aries doesn’t hold grudges and won’t expect their ex to either. Sagittarius may point out a few of their partner’s shortcomings, which might have been better left unsaid, but they’ll offer a few encouraging words as well. Gemini will not quite understand what all the fuss is about. They’ll have a few options up their sleeve for future partners and expect their ex to have the same. Aquarius will already have drifted away from the relationship, but they’ll be more than happy to stay friends.
Leo, Libra, Capricorn will be worried about the implications of breaking up during the party season (and all the soirees they’ll miss) so they may very well wait until after New Year’s to relate the bad news.
Virgo and Pisces will be concerned about hurting someone who was once close, and will think evasion is their best course of action -- hoping their partner will take the hint and make the split themselves.
Taurus never rushes into or out of anything but, on the other hand, they usually know what they want. Once they make up their minds they won’t budge, and they need to be careful they don’t get mean when they feel cornered in a tricky emotional situation.
Cancer and Scorpio are not good at letting go, so they’ll endure a private angst as they weigh the pros and cons of parting company. Cancer will worry about appearing in public solo and bereft. Scorpio knows the final conversation will be an emotional storm -- and dreads it.
