The Break-Up Guide

Reveal the Hidden Forces Behind Why it Didn't Last

DESPITE YOUR HOPES, YOUR RELATIONSHIP JUST DIDN'T WORK OUT. 

WAS IT THEM, OR WAS IT YOU? 

WAS IT CIRCUMSTANCE, OR WERE YOU TWO JUST A COMPLETE MISMATCH FROM THE START? 

THE SHORT ANSWER IS, ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Each of you contributed at least a few less-than-desirable qualities to this relationship that made it difficult for you to get along.

While you were probably able to outline your lover's failings complete with bulleted points and subheadings, you may not have realized that some of your character traits brought out the worst in them.

That's not to say that all your relationship problems were your fault, any more than they were all theirs.

No two people are a perfect match; every couple has areas that need work.

But some relationships function better than others, and the stars are a good place to look for answers regarding the issues you had as a couple.

Forewarned might have been forearmed.

Friction, Differences, and Karma Meters

The Friction, Differences and Karma Meters: remember how perfect things seemed back in the beginning?

Or maybe you can't even recall those glorious early days, when the future looked rosy and the possibilities for your relationship seemed limitless.

What was it that broke the two of you up, anyway?

The answer to that question is complex and multilayered, to be sure.

Had you known what your relationship trouble spots were, then you could have been better prepared to take one of three routes; avoid them as best as you could, worked through them as a team, or decided it just wasn’t worth the trouble and move on.

Your Friction, Differences and Karma meters give you a quick, at-a-glance view of the strife in your previous relationship -- all the sources of irritation, stress and hostility that ultimately led to that final goodbye.

This information can help you come to terms with your breakup, but also make you aware of pitfalls you may encounter in the future.

The War Zone

Jupiter square Venus

Failure of Appreciation

You can be a real pain in the butt, and we couldn't blame your sweetie for booting you right out the door. You pushed your luck too far. The fact of the matter was that you chose a lover who didn't harmonize with you naturally. They tended towards the indulgent: fine food, good wine (and plenty of it!), and abundant socializing while your more discerning, intellectual nature cried out for weightier stimulation. You craved a lover who could talk and argue and analyze as well as experience and enjoy. So, feeling stifled in your relationship, you took it out on the one person who loved you more than any other, which just wasn't fair.Had you squashed your desire to lecture and hector, you could have made it past the rough period. Though you refused to see it, you two actually brought out the best in each other -- you were drawn out of your ivory tower, while your lover's self-indulgent tendencies were curbed in your presence, whether you realized it or not. You should have tried to give your lover a break; stopped trying to control, to change them. Ultimately, the love you wanted was already in your hands. Next time, remember to appreciate what you've got when you've got it.

Couple of Hotheads

You and your sweetie had a problem: You were both hotheaded. Easy to insult and quick to criticize, you fought over the silliest things, and pursued each battle to the death. Afterwards you turned the cold shoulder to your partner. The problem dynamics were at the very root of your pairing. Though your connection was passionate and intense, it was also inclined to tumult, since both of you tended to view a difference of opinion as a threat to your egos. In addition, you may have found yourself cursed with a curious compulsion to blurt out the most inappropriate things -- or a habit of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. You both needed to work at it if you wanted this one to be a go. You never melded together smoothly because you didn't put the time in. You should have scheduled regular appointments to sit down calmly and work on your issues. If the urge struck to have a rager, it would have been better to table the issue until your next meeting instead. If you could have gotten a little distance, gained a little perspective, you both could have learned to appreciate what the other had to give.

Wild Ride

Yours was the kind of romance that makes for great stories later -- in other words, it wasn't always easy. You and your lover were drawn to each other right from the start. It all happened so fast. One minute you were on your first date, the next you were on the phone to your best friend saying 'This is the ONE!' You fell into love so quickly that you didn't look where you were headed, and therein lay the problem. It's just that you chose yourself such a darned tricky, unstable sweetie; full of electric excitement, of drama and blistering, little-hairs-standing-up-on-the-back-of-your-neck passion. But as you no doubt found out, they also signified upheaval, disruption, a heaping helping of the wrong kind of excitement.Well, if nothing else, you had yourself one heck of a ride. If you were willing to hang on, accepting all the bumps and jolts that were sure to come your way, more thrills would have been yours. One thing you could say for your relationship -- it was absolutely never boring. You may decide that next time you want a little smoother ride.

Jupiter square Sun

Strutting Peacocks

What a couple of strutting peacocks you and your lover were! And like peacocks, you were magnificent, impressive, admired -- and rather disagreeable at times. Both you and your lover tended towards the big and bold. More was more for the pair of you, as you spent exorbitant amounts of money, time, and energy on the good life. The pair of you did everything in a big way, creating a display that was dazzling but death on your inner lives. You spent too much time trying to impress each other and outsiders, and the result was the Yorkshire pudding of relationships -- all gorgeous and golden on the outside, nothing but hot air on the inside.What would have brought balance back to this relationship was paying more attention to life's bread-and-butter issues. Making sure responsibilities were taken care of before the fun started. Not taking each other for granted; instead, checking in with each other often to make sure everything was on track. Curbing your tendencies for extravagance and indulgence, and turning your energies towards what really mattered: family, friends, a happy home life, and each other. There was a lot of warmth and energy between you, all you needed was time to appreciate it.

Jupiter square Pluto

Power Play

Hey, jealous lover! It couldn't be helped that you chose such an intense and difficult mate, but did you have to reveal your insecurities so nakedly? You should have had a little pride -- no one likes to be begged. Particularly not your button-pushing significant other, who enjoyed your predicament just a little too much. You were over a barrel, wondering where your lover was every second you were not together. Did you search for clues? Emails, phone calls, notes in pants pockets? Shame on you. You let your emotions get the better of you, and it was not a pretty picture. The problem lay in the lover you picked. Your partner was sexy and compelling, magnetic and irresistible. But there were a lot of negatives along for the ride as well. You would never have been able able to harness this sweetie. You would never have been the one in complete power. Therefore you needed to muster up your inner confidence, and vow to neither control nor be controlled. You had to be your own person instead. Make your own choices. Follow your own path. If your lover didn't come around once you made it clear that you were no worm to be trod upon, you are better off without them. You deserve respect.

Jupiter square Mercury

Parent and Child

Nag, nag, nag. You could hardly blame your lover for turning off -- your needle was stuck in a groove, and you were running over the same script again and again. Was it by design that you fell into being the bad-guy parent, the scolding teacher? Or did it just somehow happen, with you viewing your restless, hard-to-pin-down lover as a great big blank canvas for you to paint on? You bagged yourself a remarkable sweetie, who was a good match for you. You enjoyed the crackling energy between you -- you sparred with words and never got tired of being in each other's company.Yet your desire to mold your lover into someone else caused friction. And when your lover was challenged, they had a tendency to blurt out the wrong thing at the wrong moment. Then you got wounded and held a grudge. Couldn't you see that the whole cycle started with you? If you'd relaxed a bit, lived and let live, things would have cooled down. Your lover wouldn't have needed to rebel if you weren't always putting on the screws. You need to channel the generous, kind side of your nature and give your future partners a break.

Sun square Uranus

Inconstant Love

You had that sick feeling in your gut by the end, didn't you? Your lover slipped away, faded out, lost interest in you. You may even have checked them out for signs of infidelity -- you know, gone through pockets, called your lover at odd times hoping you wouldn't find out something underhanded had been going on. But you knew it'd be like this when you started, didn't you? Wasn't this the same old pattern for you? You always choose inconstant lovers who kept you on your toes, probably because at some level you didn't want to find someone who'd really hang around and challenge you. You never found ease and contentment with your sweetie, but if you had wanted it, you could still have had something lasting, not to mention a lusty connection so hot that it made up for a great number of deficiencies. You might have played it a little cooler. Confidence is sexy, so you should have displayed some. The more you drew your lover hither fearlessly rather than leading with your insecure side, the less you'd have had to worry about abandonment.

Mercury square Neptune

Offbeat Pairing

You lost your temper with your love, and it was hardly attractive. Clearly you were taking orders from your heart and not your brain when you hooked up with your amour, because you chose someone rather ill-suited for you on paper. While you were all power and force, drive and demand, your lover was a bit, well, wishy-washy. You wanted to get up and go and make and do; your lover was happier sitting in a quiet corner dreaming the day away. You thought you'd made plans and formulated goals, but when you turned around to check that your lover was on the same page as you, suddenly all your control had slipped away. It confused you, and that made you both furious and difficult to live with. If you had wanted to make this work, the answer lay in confronting your patterns. Weren't you having the same conversations, the same tedious arguments, over and over again? You needed to stop repeating yourself, and stop imagining that simply by confronting your lover once more things would change. The time came -- and went -- for creative thinking, new ways of tackling the problems between you. The key was to try something new, because what you were doing certainly wasn't working.

Jupiter square Saturn

Too Serious

There was so much you admired about your lover. There was a studiousness to your sweetie, a certain drive and appreciation for hard work that the scholar in you responded to. But you longed for more lightness, more fun. Everything was a slog. Each detail had to be nailed down, and planned. Nothing was spontaneous or romantic or breathless; it was all work and no play. It's not that you didn't appreciate finding a solid, stable love-mate after all the losers you'd been through. Just that you'd have appreciated a little more levity. There may also have been family problems -- one of you was on the outs with a father, or another male relative? The problem threw more bad energy in the mix. Action was the key to smoothing the path for you two. Your relationship stagnated because you didn't put real work into it. You needed to arrange for more productive time together -- take a class? Get involved with a sport? Less time spent in serious discussions, and more time spent just enjoying each other's company, could have started some good habits. But it was up to you to get the ball rolling. After all, you were the one who wanted change.

You Didn't See Eye to Eye

No oppositions

Needed To Find A Wider Perspective

Did you two have trouble walking a mile in each other's moccasins? Was it difficult for either of you to view things from your partner's perspective? In arguments as well as in day-to-day life, were you both so attached to your own points of view that you just couldn't comprehend where your sweetie was coming from? If you answered 'yes' to any of the above questions, it may be because the two of you lacked any oppositions between you. An opposition is a somewhat stressful planetary connection, but it does something very important: It provides a wider perspective than just your own. Oppositions bring awareness of The Other and the ability to see things from your partner's point of view. Not being 'in opposition' to your lover might sound like a good thing, but look at it this way: It's like you're each going in your own direction, but your paths don't align. They don't cross, and they don't run parallel. You're each simply moving along on your own track, one that's noticeably unrelated to your partner's. You each thought you knew the other, but if you had taken a test on each other's likes and dislikes, you probably wouldn't have done as well as you thought. There was a basic inability for either of you to look across the table at the other and see the person who was actually sitting there; you both had a strong tendency to view the other through your own looking glass, which distorted the picture. Finding the balance between you required a lot of awareness and honesty on both your parts -- difficult, but not impossible if you had wanted this to work out.

This Was Not Your Destiny

Mercury quincunx Pluto

Tweaked Insecurities

Your powerful, intense lover turned you on, all right. So much so that you wondered who else has hot pants for your One. Where did your lover go when away from you? What were all those numbers programmed into your sweetie's cell phone, anyway? Who else had their greedy little eyeballs on your special someone? Thus ran your paranoia, and your secretive lover didn't give you a whole lot of reassurance, either. When you screwed up the courage to question, you were made to feel ridiculous. Or worse, your lover split, vowing to return when you were acting rationally. But how could you have acted rationally in the face of your overwhelming jealousy? This was a tough nut to crack, because your insecurities melded with your lover's tendency to withhold both information and affection. And your own tendency to want to talk things out didn't work. Instead, you had to try marshaling your independent streak. Your lover was partial to head games, so if you wanted to stay where you were, you should have played a few. Acted like you were calm and collected, and soon not only would you have felt that way but your lover would have behaved better too.

Nits Picked Here

One of you sure had a bug in your butt, because you pick-pick-picked away at each other. If it was your partner, you should be pitied; it's no fun being henpecked to death or worn down by slow torture of the emotional variety (think the drip-drip-drip of water torture!). But if it's you who was doing the constant criticism thing, just what were you playing at? You had a good thing going; why did you ruin it by nagging and whining? It may have seemed as if you and your lover spoke a different language. Neither of you could make sense of what the other was saying.That being said, you were actually in a good place to move ahead, if you could have gotten through your rough patches. Patience was, as it always is, vital, if you had wanted this to work out. Both of you tended to move too quickly, speak without thinking, do things impulsively. You should have slowed things down a little. Made time for each other. Practiced working out your problems in regularly scheduled venting sessions, rather than just fighting whenever, wherever. Before long, each of you would have expanded enough to hold the other's viewpoint -- and the skills you learned smoothing the path of this partnership would have stood you in good stead for the rest of your life.

Evasive Middle Ground

You and your lover were a curious pair, all right, but that didn't mean you were not Meant to Be. It's just that it looked a little strange on paper. You were all reality and discipline -- the harder something is to work towards, the more you liked it. Your lover, on the other hand, tended towards the indulgent in all things: food, drink, work, play. The polarity fascinated you. Never had you found a partner this hedonistic, so attuned towards the physical rather than the intellectual. At first you were so overwhelmed by your feelings that you went along helplessly for the ride; but with a little distance and time you developed disdain for your mate's way of doing things. You saw yourself as the adult, and your lover as a willful, silly child. Your contempt was palpable, and it was no fun to live with. You needed to take another look at your sweetie, and remember your original attraction. If you had found a middle ground between your serious drive and your partner's lighthearted skip, you'd have had something to reckon with indeed: a solid, stable partnership enlivened by laughter and passion. You were the one who could have gotten things started but you dilly-dallied a little too long.

Mercury quincunx Saturn

This Was Not a Dress Rehearsal

Remember when you were a kid and you misbehaved and your parents would lecture you? They'd rant on and on until you wanted to jump out a window. Did you feel a bit of deja vu with your partner? Your sweetie was more like a teacher (or yeah, a parent) than an equal, and it bugged you. You didn't like anyone telling you what to do, or more importantly, what not to do. You chafed under the surveillance, and ended up wriggling away altogether. After all, you signed up for a love relationship, not life lessons.But hold on there, impulsive one. This was not one of those tissue-paper relationships you could just toss away without thinking. This was something solid, something real, and the only reason your lover tried to guide you was concern. You were loved and looked after; so many people would have wanted to be in your shoes. You needed to stop rebelling like the kid you once were. Instead you should have buckled down and started delivering your very best. Only then would you have made both the most of yourself and of a relationship that was irksome simply because it was so challenging.

Saturn quincunx Jupiter

Burdens and Obligations

You were always the kind of lover your mates bragged about to their moms -- reliable, sensible, stable, loyal. But something about this lover turned your usual style upside down. You felt burdened by what you viewed as your obligation to them. You also carried guilt from bad choices you made in the past, and that guilt carried over into this relationship, causing you to take on more responsibility and commitment than you really felt ready for.But why blame your mate for your own bad choices? Obligations weren't placed upon you. You took them on yourself. If you didn't want to be burdened, you should just have said so. You could have sought the advice of friends, who might have helped you clarify what you wanted and what you should have rejected. Then you could have picked and chosen; said no to some things, yes to others. You should have give in to your lover on some matters, but insisted on your own way elsewhere. It wasn't comfortable for you, speaking your mind. It may have brought on a difficult transitional period, but at the end of it your lover would have known --and adored -- the real you. Before that can happen, though, you have to love yourself. There's plenty to love, so get started!

Maybe You Were Too Similar (or Not)

No conjunctions

Not Enough Glue

There's glue, and then there's glue. Elmer's versus epoxy, Velcro versus nails. Your relationship was bound by the easy-to-separate type of togetherness, not the wild-horses-couldn't-drag-us-apart variety. Now, don't misunderstand: This is not to say that there was not a strong connection between you. But you were able to take the occasional separate vacation; to enjoy your own interests without your partner feeling threatened; to be two distinct individuals who chose to hang out together. Compare this to the joined-at-the-hip, can't-bear-to-be-apart couple. Didn't you always wonder about them? What did they think would happen if they weren't together for an entire evening, much less a day or even a week?Separation was not a problem for you two; in fact, you may have done it by choice on a regular basis. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and this was surely true of you and your partner. You took great joy in sharing your individual experiences, as well as in spending time together. If anything, you might have had to make it a point to schedule in time to be together! You may each have been involved in your own orbits that you suddenly realized that days or even weeks had gone by without you two sharing a full day together.You shouldn't have let that happen. You needed to discover the challenges of your relationship, which so often can turn out to be opportunities for growth and development. You two had chosen to be together, and likewise, you could have chosen to grow together.

Next Steps

I hope you have enjoyed the valuable insight, wisdom and guidance of this astrology report. You might be a little curious about astrology and perhaps wondering how an astrologer can know so much about you!

Astrology is a mathematical system. It's all about applying meaning to numbers, or more specifically, finding meaning in the movements of the planets around the Sun, as viewed from our perspective here on earth. These planetary movements are easily captured and recorded with measurements, calculations, angles and so on.

That's why astrology works so well with computers, whose programs are also based on numbers and formulas. In 'the old days' -- thousands of years ago, when astrology was first recorded -- those early astrologers had to painstakingly observe the heavens and catalog their observations for the next generation of astrologers to build upon. Thank goodness for the computer age! Now we can simply use computers to make those calculations quickly and pull just the applicable pieces of information. Now, astrology is instant, based upon thousands of years of observations obtained through careful methodology.

Interpretations of planetary positions are based in part on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, but your astrological report is unique, describing you and you only. Even in the case of twin siblings, their birth charts differ from each other's in at least a few ways. And besides, no one amounts to just a simple interpretation of their birth chart; everyone's personality is complex. Your astrological report leaves plenty of room for variations based on your free will, personal growth and transformation over a lifetime.

Just like you, your astrological report is unique. It’s generated online in seconds and provides you with instant insight at your fingertips. Whether you have a pressing question about your future or you just want some guidance and direction, now you can have it all -- in a fast, focused, all-about-you format.

You can choose from several different types to find the report that's right for you and your needs. Your natal report is all about you -- your unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, potential and so on. Compatibility reports analyze the connections between two different people, to see how well and in what ways they get along. And a forecast is based on where the planets are today and how they're affecting you, uniquely. Be sure to try a free sample of another report to find out more about you!
