Relationships can be frightening because anyone has the potential to break your heart. There are good and bad people born every day, but some astrology enthusiasts believe that our zodiac sign can influence our behavior. This means that certain signs may be more likely to cheat, ghost, or end a relationship via text message. With this in mind, we've compiled a list of signs ranked by their likelihood of breaking your heart.
1. Most likely to break your heart: Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Unfortunately for those dating a Gemini, they are the sign most likely to break your heart due to their two-faced and unpredictable nature. While there are exceptions, Geminis are generally impulsive, unreliable, and forgetful of others' feelings. Their twin personalities can also make them hot and cold, which can be confusing and disappointing. Additionally, Geminis are intelligent enough to lie and outgoing enough to flirt, earning them a reputation as "jugglers" in the dating world.
2. Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Despite being one of the most romantic signs in the zodiac, Libras can still break your heart due to their people-pleasing nature. They hate upsetting their partners, often leading to stringing someone along for too long until they can't anymore. Though their intentions are good, this behavior can be more devastating than a quick and direct breakup early on in the relationship.
3. Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Sagittarians are known for being passionate and expressive, making them some of the best lovers in the zodiac. However, their passion can also make them unfaithful at times, although not all Sagittarians are like this. They also have a reputation for being reluctant to commit, as they value their freedom. This can be heartbreaking for partners who want a committed relationship. Additionally, as fire signs, Sagittarians may lose their temper and say hurtful things that can break someone's heart.
4. Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Unlike Libra, Virgo is likely to break your heart by ripping off the band-aid mercilessly. This sign values honesty and is known for being the harshest critic in the zodiac. They won't sugar-coat things if they have a problem with you, which can be tough to hear for sensitive people. Additionally, Virgos seek perfection in themselves and others, which can lead to rejecting potential partners and causing heartbreak before a real connection is formed.
5. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is not typically dishonest or vindictive, but their aloofness and arrogant attitude can still break hearts. Despite their love of charity, their superior intellect can make others feel small, and their self-reliance can lead to neglecting their partner's needs. They may not think twice about leaving someone out in the cold because they expect others to be just as self-sufficient as they are.
6. Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Scorpio has a controversial reputation in the zodiac due to their possessiveness, jealousy, and lack of control over their urges. However, they are also fiercely loyal and protective of their loved ones, so they may not be the most likely to break your heart. That being said, if they don't develop strong feelings for you, their negative traits can take over and cause heartbreak.
7. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn is not likely to cheat due to their rational and careful nature. However, they can come off as cold and emotionless and are known for being workaholics, often neglecting their partners. Being self-sufficient, they can become defensive when their partner appears needy. Their intelligence and ambition may cause them to act in a condescending manner, leading their partners to feel hurt.
8. Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Taurus, like other earth signs, is capable of breaking hearts with their cold, overly independent, and brutally honest nature. They're also known for being stubborn and resistant to admitting fault, which can be hurtful. However, Taureans value harmony in their relationships and are generally friendly and agreeable. They are more likely to end a relationship kindly and maturely rather than inflicting brutal heartbreak.
9. Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Aries may have a fiery temper and a vengeful streak, but they're also incredibly loyal and loving. Their own strong emotions make them more attuned to their partner's feelings, so they're careful in their intimate relationships, even if they occasionally say things they regret.
10. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces is a highly emotional water sign that tends to give their all in relationships, making them more prone to heartbreak than heartbreakers. However, if you wrong a Pisces, they can become fiercely vengeful. Despite this, they're generally gentle and would never intentionally hurt someone they care about.
11. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer's fear of having their heart broken makes them unlikely to break anyone else's heart. They take their time to open up and form deep, long-term connections, and their caring and nurturing nature often puts others before themselves.
12. Least Likely To Break Your Heart: Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Leo is known for their charm and flirtatious nature, which may lead them to explore their options before committing. They can also come across as self-centered, with a desire for attention and admiration. However, when in a committed relationship, they make loyal and loving partners. Leos are incredibly generous and protective, and their passion knows no bounds when they fall in love. They prioritize their partner's happiness and would never intentionally hurt them.
