You’ve finally found him. The One. He’s tall, but not freakishly tall, handsome, but not so pretty that he makes you look like complete garbage by comparison, and he’s nice in a non-doormat way. He’s perfect in every way except one — his zodiac sign isn’t compatible with yours.
It’s one of the first things you look at when meeting someone new: age, major, how much money his parents make, and then sign. Maybe you’re a Cancer and he’s an Aries, or maybe he’s a Taurus and you’re a Leo. Either way, according to astrology, it’s not going to work out. You know astrology is real because one time your horoscope told you to not to make any hasty decisions. When you ignored it and decided to get bangs on a whim, you looked like Matilda for eight weeks until they grew out. From that day forward, you took astrology seriously.
You might think it could work out and you could see past your obvious differences, but you could be wrong. In fact, you’re probably wrong, because the stars are always right. He might as well be Catholic while you’re Jewish. It’s just not meant to be, and your parents would never approve. (They’re a Leo and Libra couple, so they know the importance of zodiac compatibility.)
So you have to end things, preferably before they even begin. Say goodbye to the beautiful little babies you could make with his light eyes and your dark hair. Call your mom and tell her it’s going to be a little bit longer until she has grandchildren. It’s over. You’re heartbroken, but you know you’re doing the right thing. Here are a few ways to cope with this tragic news.
1. Let It Out
It’s okay to cry. It’s disappointing to find out that the person you thought could be your forever was actually never right for you in the first place. Your horoscope app even warned you on the day that you met him that today would be filled with challenges. This is that challenge. Cry and lean on your friends for support, unless you’re a Cancer and your friend is a Sagittarius, because that bitch is anything but supportive during hard times.
2. Be Thankful It Ended Before Things Got Serious
It’s better to find out sooner rather than later that you two aren’t compatible. I once had a friend who dated a guy for six months before finding out his sign. She was taking him home to meet her parents, and when she found out he was a Leo and she was a Taurus — it was a disaster waiting to happen, so obviously she knew it wasn’t meant to be. She had no choice but to end it right there and then. She spent the weekend holed up in her parents’ house crying her eyes out and cursing herself for being so stupid. You don’t want to be that girl, trust me.
3. Realize There Are Other Fish In The Sea Who Are Actually Compatible With You
He wasn’t “The One.” You know how I know that? Because if you’re a Gemini, he would’ve been an Aries or a Taurus. It’s pure fact. You wouldn’t want to waste your time with a Capricorn when you’re a Libra, right? Right. There are plenty of Cancers and Capricorns out there who are meant for you, and some of them will even be cute. Don’t get picky, though. Sign compatibility comes first, then looks.
4. Place Your Trust In The Stars
If you believe in astrology (as any smart, sophisticated modern day woman should), you should believe in its power to find the right guy for you (born between April 20 and May 21 if you’re a Scorpio). You might feel like curling up into a ball and dying, but know that there is hope. Every sign is compatible with two other signs. You won’t be forever alone. You’ll find your guy eventually, and when you do, you’ll just know he’s the one when you look up his sign compatibility with your on the internet. Trust the system — I mean, the stars.
My condolences go out to you during this very difficult time. I know you’ll make it through this. It’s written in the stars. .
