Toxic Relationships

No one wants toxic relationships. We don’t exchange I-love-you’s assuming that it’s going to blow up soon in the nastiest way possible. But some relationships are not meant to last, and it’s up to us to know when it’s time to let go. Read on to find out why your sign sometimes refuses to cut the cord!

March 21 - April 19

You just don’t like losing, Aries native, and it doesn’t matter WHAT you lose: a game or a toxic relationship. You’re all about making it work with this particular person, even if you see that it’s obviously NOT going to work. You’re annoyed all the time, you hate being with your SO, but you can’t quit.

It happens because you’re stubborn by nature and hate failing. You’re just not ready to admit defeat even if your significant other hurts you – or, as a fire sign, YOU hurt them. It’s important for you to learn how to admit defeat – because sometimes, quitting is endlessly healthier than staying.

April 20 - May 20

You hate change, Taurean, and sometimes they even call you the tradition keeper of the Zodiac. The longer you stay in a relationship, the more difficult it is for you to quit. Change is one of the scariest things for you, especially if changing means losing someone you used to love. You just can’t go into the unknown with confidence.

This is true both for your romantic and professional life. You won’t quit your job unless you already have another one that is ultimately better than the old one – even if staying means risking your mental health. Learn to let it go when it’s getting a bit too messy, even if you don’t have a plan, Taurean!


May 21 - June 20

Even though you value your freedom above all things, the connection is very important to you as well. Your heart melts when you find someone who cares about you, and quitting this relationship that is so special to you feels terribly wrong, even though you see it’s obviously going in the wrong direction.

You need to quit when your relationship starts suffocating you with daily routines and boredom, but it’s extremely hard to let it go. You may stay even if your significant other hurts you or bores you to death (or both) because there’s still that magical connection between you and your SO that you don’t want to give up.

June 21 - July 22

You’re one of the most sensitive Zodiac signs, Cancerian, and that’s okay, but sometimes your emotions can play a dirty trick with you. Once you find that person who cares about you, it may be extremely hard for you to finally quit your relationship even if it is obviously not going as planned.

You stay in an unhealthy relationship even though your significant other hurts you because you just don’t want an unhappy ending. You don’t want to break the heart of someone who used to make you feel important and loved. Part of you hopes that everything will change and you will be happy together again.


July 23 - August 22

Staying in a relationship is important to you, Leo, because you have so much love to give. You choose your significant other wisely and expect to receive as much love in return as you give them. Love is one of the most important things for you in your life and you treat it very, very seriously.

It’s hard for you to say goodbye when things are going in the wrong direction because, usually, you still have feelings for your significant other. You are not afraid to stand up for yourself if your loved one hurts your feelings, but quitting is not always simple. Your feelings are just too strong to let go.

By the way, your relationship may be karmic. See the traits of a karmic relationship here!


August 23 - September 22

Virgo native, you hate making hasty decisions and acting on impulse – that’s why you tend to stay in a relationship even if it’s obviously going in the wrong direction. Sometimes you even treat your romantic connections like business ones and do your best to keep them alive no matter what.

When things are on the rocks between you and your significant other, you enter the damage control mode to save what’s left of your relationship. Even if your romantic partner hurts your feelings, you refuse to let go. You hate failing – and quitting an unhealthy relationship totally feels like failing to you.

September 23 - October 23

For you, Libra, life is not complete without someone who makes you feel loved and cared about. That’s why you stay in a toxic relationship – you are waiting for a fairytale ending, even though it’s obvious that fairytales are not coming back. You hate wasting so much time and not getting your perfect ending!

Your SO may hurt you occasionally, but you’re not leaving them because you’re comfortable. You convince yourself that it’s just a bad period on your way to a happy ending. You’ve watched enough romantic movies to know that it’s not cloudless all the time. So you wait, but often there’s nothing to wait for.


October 24 - November 22

You are the most mysterious sign of the Zodiac, and you’re not a fan of telling people about your emotions. You hate being vulnerable and exposed – that’s why, when you find someone you’re comfortable sharing your feelings with, you hold onto them very, very tightly. You can’t imagine life without them.

Another thing: your significant other probably knows all the secrets you’ve told them in confidence, so letting them go is scary: what if they tell others?! Plus, you can be possessive about things (and people) you love. Breaking up with them means someone else will have them, and you can’t bear the thought of it.

November 23 - December 21

You value your freedom, Sag, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy for you to quit a relationship even though it’s getting a bit too toxic. The thing is, when you’re together, you know that your relationship is going downhill. When you’re apart, though, you forget about bad times and keep thinking about your significant other.

You stay with them even though they hurt your feelings because leaving them forever means thinking about them all the time. And missing them. And blaming yourself for quitting the relationship. Your mind plays dirty tricks with you, making you think that your relationship was not really that bad.


December 22 - January 19

You’re the most intelligent star sign of the Zodiac, Cap, but it doesn’t mean you never make mistakes in the romantic department. When you find someone who admires your attitude, your dedication, and even your workaholism, you hold onto them tight. Leaving them is unthinkable, no matter what happens.

You stay with your significant other even if they hurt your feelings because you’re afraid you will not be able to find anyone like them again. You know it’s not true but there’s a nervous, silly part of you that enters the panic mode every time you think about quitting the toxic relationship.


January 20 - February 19

You’re a true friend, Aquarius, and it’s important for you to build some sort of a friendship foundation before entering the romantic stage. Without this foundation, it just doesn’t feel serious enough. That’s why you may find yourself being stuck in a toxic relationship: you value that friendship too much.

You stay with your significant other when they hurt you emotionally because even though your relationship is on the rocks, your friendship is still there. Letting go and quitting feels like betraying a friend. You convince yourself that you just need to wait and everything will be fine again.


February 20 - March 20

You are the most romantic star sign of the Zodiac, Piscean. You believe in love, and you’re full of contradictions – even your sign’s symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions. One moment, you love someone, the next moment, you don’t. Changing your mind is your favorite pastime activity.

Your feelings play dirty tricks with you all the time, and you just cannot make up your mind. That’s why you stay in a toxic relationship even if your significant other hurts you emotionally. One moment, you decide to break up with them, and then you’re in love again. Making a decision is so, so very hard for Pisceans!
