The Fine Art of Letting Go

The Fine Art of Letting Go
Do you stay friends with old lovers, or are you the love-them-or-loathe-them type? There's no right way to separate -- it all depends on who you are. Look to the zodiac to gain a better understanding of your natural reaction to breaking up.

The three signs who have the most difficulty with separation are Cancer, Scorpio and Taurus. Cancer folks are great sentimentalists, hanging on fervently to the past and remembering nothing but the good times. They really hate being jolted out of their comfort zone, and will cling with crab-like tenacity long after it's sensible to do so.

Scorpio loves deeply and gets easily intertwined in a relationship, so disentanglement for them is no simple process. Since they're so proud, they often don't show hurt and can seem almost uncaring. But underneath those still waters, there's a bubbling cauldron of torment and resentment, and just because their feelings have flipped from love to the opposite doesn't mean they let go easily. They rarely forget ... and almost never forgive.

Taurus may appear less emotional, but they are highly possessive and security-conscious, so woe to anyone who upsets their apple cart. They'll brood, dig in their toes and let go only when it best suits them.

The Air signs -- Gemini, Libra and Aquarius -- will be taken aback by a split if it's not their decision. In fact, they'll shut down their feelings in an instant, thinking about it and endlessly chatting it over with friends. Gemini and Aquarius will probably then decide it's for the best, since now they can play the field again. Libra, on the other hand, will feel humiliated at being left in the lurch and, as reputation-conscious as they are, will take longer to repair their wounded pride.

Leo won't quite believe it and will disappear into a sea of self-doubt and uncertainty; the same is true of Pisces. Both signs require relationships that split little by little and disengage slowly, rather than too fast. Otherwise, these folks are bound to end up in a heap.

The other two Fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius, will be off like a shot without a glance back ... but only if the split was their idea. If it's their partner who makes the decision, they'll huff and puff noisily before ultimately deciding there are bigger fish in the sea. Their sense of adventure means they won't be down for long.

And finally, given their slightly pessimistic nature, Virgo and Capricorn will sigh sadly before burying themselves in work as a distraction from feeling down.
