The Song You Should Listen to After a Breakup, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
There are only a few things that get us through a breakup: ice cream, our bestie, and, of course, music.
Nothing has a way of capturing everything we're going through and just how we feel quite like a good song.
But not every track about splitting up is fitting for every person. Keep reading for the song you should listen to after a breakup, based on your zodiac sign!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): 'Since U Been Gone' by Kelly Clarkson
As the most fiery and driven sign in the zodiac, you're not about to let a breakup get you down, Aries. Instead of moping around and missing your S.O., you're feeling empowered, ready to come out on top. "Since U Been Gone" is the perfect motivational anthem to say sayonara to your ex, and hello to the rest of the busy, exciting life ahead of you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): 'We Are Never Getting Back Together' by Taylor Swift
Sometimes your inherent stubbornness gets you in trouble, Taurus—but not so when it comes to breakups. As one of the most practical signs in the zodiac, you know better than anyone that if you and someone you were dating break-up, it happened for a reason. Regardless of what the other party wants, your stubbornness and realistic outlook on the situation prevents you from reuniting with that person. You know that whatever caused your split in the first place is likely to happen again. This is why "We Are Never Getting Back Together" is totally your go-to.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): 'Back to December' by Taylor Swift
Much like Taylor, you've gone back and forth about your feelings for someone. One minute, you tell yourself you're just not that into a person, and the next minute you second-guess yourself, feeling like there may be something more. As a Gemini, your moods are ever-changing, which can at times hurt other people, and therefore end up hurting you. "Back to December" encompasses the feeling of hurting someone when you refused to give them your all, and wishing you could go back in time to do the situation differently. We think you'll find this scenario all too relatable.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): 'I Fall Apart' by Post Malone
While many signs have trouble acknowledging their emotions, you are quite the opposite, sensitive little crab. For better or worse, you confront your feelings head-on, making "I Fall Apart" your breakup anthem. It's a raw look at how broken a person can become after a breakup—a feeling you relate to hardcore. Allow yourself to feel pain because it will help you deal with it and get past it sooner than if you try to act like you're totally okay.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): 'Irreplaceable' by Beyoncé
While breakups aren't easy, you know your worth, confident Leo. Regardless of how your ex may have tried to tear you down, you've continuously gotten back up, well aware that another potential mate is right around the corner. Whenever you have even an inkling of doubt, "Irreplaceable" is a quick reminder that your former S.O. will be replaced in no time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): 'Better' by Kelela
Analytical and practical Virgo, you know when a relationship has run its course. "Better" acknowledges the end of a partnership, and being okay with the decision to call it quits. Kind and loyal, a Virgo doesn't want to part ways on bad terms. You still care about your ex, but just like the song says, you two are "better off as friends."
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): 'Someone Like You' by Adele
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" tends to be your motto, happy-go-lucky Libra. Extremely romantic, yet also very balanced, "Someone Like You" is your song after a breakup because Adele praises her ex in the classic track, and while she's clearly going through something painful, she doesn't use the song as an opportunity to tear him down. This song couldn't do a better job of capturing all of the bittersweet feelings of love lost.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): 'Stone Cold' by Demi Lovato
Passionate and a bit jealous and dark, Scorpio, your breakup song is without question this powerful and tearful ballad by Demi Lovato. You felt a strong connection to your ex—someone who got to know you in rawest form. Your inherently mysterious nature prevents people from getting super close to you, and having let this person in so intimately has you torn to shreds when you're no longer together. This track will elicit a good cry, which is just what you need. Don't hold back, Scorp.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): 'Pyramids' by Noonie Bao
As one of the most confident, positive signs of the zodiac, Sag is looking at their breakup with the glass half full. Harboring no serious animosity towards their ex, they're feeling good and on to the next! This is why the upbeat and poppy "Pyramids" is definitely the song for you. Blasting this bad boy on the road or while you're getting ready to go out will have you feeling instantly like the amazing rock star you are.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): 'I Don't Need a Man' by The Pussycat Dolls
Practical, wise and patient, a Capricorn knows much better than to rely on a partner to bring them happiness. Regardless of the nature of your split, you know that your relationship didn't work out for a reason, and there's no point in forcing something that just isn't meant to be. "I Don't Need a Man" is your reinforcement (not that you need it!) that you are just fine on your own, and you'll find the right person when the time is right.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): 'Breakaway' by Kelly Clarkson
Aquarius, you're not about to let a breakup bring you down. As a sign that's independent and can't stand being in stagnant situations, you're embracing the change brought on by this split. Painful or not, you're looking at this situation as an excuse to start something new. Whether it's a fresh relationship or a project you'll now have more time to complete, "Breakaway" will give you the extra dash of encouragement you need to take on something (or someone) different.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): 'Without Me' by Halsey
Pisces, you are the most selfless, gentle and compassionate sign of the zodiac. You're constantly putting others before you, and expecting nothing in return. But, unfortunately, your generosity and kindness sometimes makes you an easy target to be taken advantage of. "Without Me" tells the story of Halsey doing everything for someone she used to date, only to have them leave her once she helped morph them into who they wanted to be. While you usually take a pretty happy disposition, it's okay to be sad right now.
