After a break-up, it's common to feel unexcited about life or what the future may bring. Even if the relationship was short, it's hard not to think about what might have been. After all, grieving is an important step in the process of working through the pain of a break-up.
However, if you feel like you're becoming stuck in a world of nostalgia and regret, it's time to move on! Let the cosmos help you re-enter the game of love in the most effective and powerful way possible for your Sun sign's element.
Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Simply put, you'll burn up if you don't kiss the past goodbye. The time immediately after a break-up is perfect for you to pursue a new active endeavor, or to plan some kind of getaway for yourself. Once your wounds have healed, you'll thrive on meeting new people and becoming re-invigorated by the thrill of the chase! Take solace in the fact that, more than any other element, Fire signs have the ability to get over break-ups fairly quickly.
Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Earth signs need stability to feel secure. Leaving the past behind and making plans for your romantic future will come more easily if you take careful, step-by-step actions. Spend some time assessing your old relationship. Given the chance, what would you do differently? What kind of partner will best suit you next time? Create a strategy for your next love adventure, then take it slowly -- one step at a time.
Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Social networking is key for Air signs when recovering from a break-up. Make sure your relationship status is updated on all your online haunts. Also, creating a new dating profile will help you get a sense of who's available, while letting you gain more clarity on exactly what you want out of your next relationship. All that said, hiding behind a computer screen can become counter-productive at a certain point, so make sure to get out and meet new people! Communication is your ally, so don't be afraid to address exactly what you're looking for in a partner.
Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
As a deeply sensitive Water sign, you may be tempted to retreat from the world with a box of tissue and a slew of sad movies. Instead, recharge your spirit by spending time in places that energize and inspire you. Furthermore, massage and other healing treatments will help repair your tender heart. When you finally feel emotionally cleansed, you'll be ready to love again -- on an even deeper level.
