If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a tender Taurus, virtuous Virgo, or a committed Capricorn, then you know how it feels to be with a partner who wants to be your biggest asset. But what happens when your earth sign mate has become a liability? Here’s how to make a clean break with a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn:
The Breakup Strategy
Taurus doesn’t like change – even if the change is for the better. This quality is what makes breaking up with Taurus challenging, especially for signs that don’t like change anymore than Taurus does (that means you, Cancer) or who would prefer that a problem solve itself (yes, I’m talking to you, Pisces). You want the quickest way to break up with Taurus? It doesn’t exist. When you entered into a relationship with Taurus, you made an agreement to be in it for the long haul and you must honor that agreement. This includes enduring a long breakup. Begin by weaning Taurus out of your relationship by failing to cater to the Bull. Stop cooking all those great meals. Don’t run any more bubble baths. No more late night massages! If this doesn’t work, try introducing Taurus to someone who cooks better than you.
Breaking up with Virgo is actually very simple. Virgo is a mutable sign, which means that the Virgin easily adapts to new stimuli. In this case, the new stimuli would be you wanting to break up. Expect many questions about how you came to your decision. Although the chain of questions will seem endless, it’s just Virgo’s way of gathering more information for future reference. Not answering the questions only inspires more questions, so carve out some time to satiate Virgo’s curiosity and you’ll be home free!
Capricorns are usually the ones doing the dumping, so breaking up with them is relatively easy – as long as you let them be the boss of the breakup. Present yourself as a loser without future earning potential or any interest in money or status what-so-ever. No matter how many times the Goat introduces you to a great mentor in your career field, say you’re not sure this is the right step for you. The Capricorn will fire you from the relationship for being an unsuitable mate (aka business partner). If you don’t let Capricorn dump you, then look forward to changing jobs, bank accounts, and social security #s in order to protect yourself from the Capricorn wanting to get revenge against you (especially if your goat has Venus in Scorpio).
Unless you broke Taurus’ trust, a Taurus ex will probably be in your life forever in some way or another (especially if you have kids together). If you married Taurus without a prenuptial agreement (how’d you manage that?), then be prepared for a long battle in court if you want to leave the marriage with anything Taurus wants to keep, like the car, the house, the kids, or YOU. If you’re moving out of the home you’ve built with the Bull, make sure to clearly mark all of your belongings. It will make packing so much easier.
You will enjoy Virgo better after a breakup than you did during the relationship. Not only do you still get the constructive “advice,” but Virgo might even help you reorganize your life after it falls apart due to Virgo’s highly noticeable absence. If you share children with Virgo, you won’t have to fight for joint custody, but you will have to endure Virgo frequently correcting and criticizing your parenting style.
The great thing about a Capricorn ex is that the Goat won’t kiss and tell about your breakup. It will be as if you never existed at all…
How did your relationship with a Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn end? Did the end of your relationship with an earth sign leave you feeling on shaky footing or on solid ground?
