Your exes’ zodiac sign can tell you a lot about their potential as long-term friends. It depends what you are looking for – a simple, amicable acquaintance, or to be best friends forever? Check his or her sign to see if you can be friends with your ex.
Aries March 21 – April 19
It might be too late to be friends with your Aries ex. They move on so quickly that you are already a distant memory. Should you ever meet up, your Aries ex will either look right past you with barely a ‘hello’, or they will approach you as a potential opportunity to be unfaithful to their current lover.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Being friends with your Taurus ex could be a little challenging. Now you are not lovers, they feel they can offer you ‘advice’… or criticism dressed up as advice, especially if they are in one of ‘those moods’. They think they are being helpful; you will feel they are hurtful. If you share common interests, and they admire your prowess, there’s a chance you could be friends on an equal basis.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Your Gemini ex will call you up when they have something to moan about. They see you as an uncomplaining confidante. You really get them, and they like that. When they’re happy, you probably won’t hear a squeak from their direction, but as soon as there’s a little turmoil, you will be roped in as a sounding board, especially if you are the quiet, empathic sort. Can you put up with that? If yes, then the friendship with your Gemini ex might last a while.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Your Cancer ex is one of the zodiac signs for which platonic love and friendship is important. Even though they are with someone else, they will always hold a soft spot in their heart for you. If you are okay with this, you will have a friend for life. Even though you might not see them for long periods of time, you will slip back into friendship with your Cancer ex like an old, but loved, pair of loafers.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Your Leo ex thinks that you are always on their side, that you have their best interests at heart and, therefore, will think of you first when they want guidance – even about their current relationship. And you do know them well, don’t you? You understand that you can’t push a Leo – they prefer their buttons tickled, rather than pressed. That’s why you are a good friend for your Leo ex. Their current love may not feel the same way. Be aware, your Leo ex thinks they have a sort of special dispensation to boss you around.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Your Virgo ex will either not want to be friends with you because their strict code of ethics forbids them from upsetting their current lover. Or, they will want to be friends because they can relax with you and forget those inhibitions. They feel they have nothing to prove with you. You can be friends with your ex if you don’t drain their energy or pressure them.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Libra is a sociable sign, so you will probably still be part of their circle of friends anyway. This circle of friends and acquaintances around Libra is akin to a swirling, ever-changing vortex. Sometimes you’ll get close to them, at others you’ll find yourself on the outer edge. Your Libra ex won’t see friendship with you as a problem. In the same way, they expect their current lover to accept all their friendships, including yours.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Your Scorpio ex lover views all their relationships as intense. If you hurt them, you can forget it, but if you were a long-term, loyal partner you’ll be assigned a special place in their heart. However, their tendency to become totally wrapped up in their current relationship means you would be hanging around on the periphery. Best leave them to it.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
If your bond with your Sagittarius was very strong, then you may be able to maintain a life-long friendship. They are very picky about who they let into their inner circle. You could be one of the chosen ones. It really depends on the manner of your break-up. If you managed to hang on to your integrity, then it might just work out. If you betrayed your Sagittarius ex, you don’t stand a chance. Yet you could be included as an ‘outer-circle’ friend if you have redeeming qualities.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
It’s unlikely that your Capricorn ex will ever see you as an intimate friend. Cappies tend to put the various parts of their lives into separate boxes, and, rest assured, you have been put firmly into the ‘ex’ box. If you need help, they’ll grudgingly give it, but friendship… that possibility left when you did.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Your Aquarius ex is one of the less predictable signs. If they want to be friends with you, they will be. If they hate what you did, then you won’t be given a second glance. If they should decide that you are worthy of their attention, then nothing will stop them. Those who deserve their support and loyalty will get it, ex or otherwise. Objections from their current lover will be ignored.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Pisces doesn’t hold a grudge and is very likely to be amenable to friendship with their ex. They believe everyone deserves a second chance. Due to their emotional unsteadiness, they might be willing to try again with you in a relationship, beginning the cycle again. It probably won’t last when they rediscover why you both split up in the first place. Yet, the chances of staying friends with your ex remain high.
