Understanding Their Zodiac Sign
Use their zodiac traits to win them back
One way to lure your ex back is to use your understanding of their zodiac sign. You and your ex may have ended things due to a misunderstanding rather than incompatibility. Knowing how each sign deals with relationships is key to understanding how to win them back and better communicate in the future. Here is some advice on how to win back an ex, based on their individual zodiac signs.
Aries signs are passionate with strong personality traits; however, they can be protective of their emotions because they don’t like to be vulnerable. Winning them back is going to require you to be assertive without being overly emotional. Remind an Aries of the good times you’ve had together by sending them a text stating plainly that you miss those moments. It might take a few days, but there’s a good chance you’ll hear back.
Taurus signs enjoy the luxurious side of life and love to be pampered. That said, they also have a level of practicality found in most earth signs. Winning a Taurus back can be tricky because they are also extremely stubborn. But, it is possible. A thoughtful gift will go a long way with a Taurus. It will cater to their materialistic side, bring you to the center of attention, and prod slightly at their stubbornness while allowing them to respond on their own time. Taurus signs are fiercely loyal, so you are likely to get a response.

Geminis often find themselves weaving in and out of relationships because they get bored very easily. This is common for an air sign, but especially for a Gemini. They need to have fun and excitement in their relationships on a very regular basis. To win back a Gemini, you have to entice their curious side. If you are still friends on social media, try posting some photos showing them that you are having a great time. Hopefully, it’ll pique their interest and they will reach out to you!
Of all the signs, Cancers are the easiest to win back. They are extremely emotional, love to care for others, and love to be cared for themselves. Relationships provide a safe space for Cancers and they enjoy feeling both protected and needed. Calling a Cancer and having a deep conversation about your relationship with them will tug at those heartstrings that Cancers are full of. Be honest, open, and let your Cancer ex get his/her feelings out as well. This experience may act as a bonding moment and bring your ex back into the relationship.
Dating a Leo can be an exciting and passionate experience. Leo signs exude the most confidence of all the signs but secretly have a fragile ego. The paradoxical nature of the fiery Leo makes it difficult to get them back. On the one hand, they crave attention. On the other, they are allured by those who seem ‘hard to get.’ The best method to winning a Leo back is to give them some space. It will confuse a Leo, who is used to being showered with attention. Their ego will eventually drive them to try and figure out why you seem no longer interested.
A Virgo sign is extremely practical, reliable, patient, and kind. If you are still friends with your Virgo ex, winning them back can be very easy. However, if the relationship ended badly, a Virgo’s practical side is going to tell them to stay away from any negativity. The best approach with a Virgo is a logical one. Tell a Virgo that you want to sit down at dinner and rehash the relationship. Giving your Virgo ex a chance to talk, express their reasons, and better understand the pitfalls of the relationship will appeal to their pragmatic needs. During this meeting, you can tell the Virgo your own rationale about why you should give it another shot. It just might work!
A Libra’s biggest motivator is always balance. They seek to achieve harmony in every aspect of their lives. So, if you’ve been broken up with by a Libra, it’s because your presence was tipping the scales in some way. Perhaps you took up too much of their time, or maybe a Libra felt like trust was missing from the relationship. Libras appreciate honesty and value reason. Admitting that you were wrong about some things in the relationship (without getting overly emotional) will show a Libra that you are stable, balanced, and willing to make things work.
If you’ve dated a Scorpio, you’ve probably felt their lack of trust. They themselves are a very mysterious sign, but they often also come with their own trust issues. Suspicion can rule a Scorpio and might have led to the downfall of the relationship. Scorpios are the most sexual of the signs and physical presence is important in establishing a connection. Find a way to get your Scorpio ex to agree to an in-person hangout. Be upfront about your feelings, leaving no room for interpretation or conspiracy to dwell in the mind of your ex. Chances are, you’ll find yourself enjoying some physical fun later that evening.
A Sagittarius is a free adventurous spirit who has trouble being tied down to anyone or anything. Landing one, or getting one back, is a challenge as their minds move quickly from one thing to the next. While they are laid back, they do care about their relationships. The key with a Sagittarius is to not put too much pressure on them. Be persistent, yes, but not in a way that’s overbearing. Cater to things that a Sagittarius would love by perhaps suggesting that you two meet at a park or chat about the relationship over a hike together. Show them that you too can be spontaneous and adventurous.
When a Capricorn breaks up with someone, it’s very harsh. They like to remove all evidence of the relationship on social media, which may have resulted in them blocking you. Don’t take it personally. Capricorns are very rigid about their personal boundaries, but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t care about the relationship. What you have to do is find a way to keep them engaged. Get in touch with them and let them know you are there for them no matter what. Ask questions about life, their job, their pet, etc. Capricorns will cut someone out for self-preservation, but almost never truly want to. Show them that you are a rock in their life.
Aquarius signs are notorious for their need for space and independence. Dating one can be very hard as you often feel as if you are smothering them when in reality, you are just being an attentive partner. It’s going to be hard, but what an Aquarius needs right now is space. Don’t contact them for a while, don’t shower them with attention, and don’t reach out. Let them be independent for as long as you can stand it and then send a casual ‘just checking in’ text. If you’ve given them enough space, they’ll be happy to hear from you. Relationships matter a lot to an Aquarius, even those which have ended.
Pisces signs are incredibly passionate, romantic, and they love to dream. Some might even say that they live in their own little worlds. When a Pisces breaks up with you, there will always still be emotions attached. Play into their dreamy existence by suggesting that you two engage in an activity you know that they are passionate about. For example, if they loved to paint, tell them you want to plan an art day together. They won’t be able to resist the romance of it all, and you’ll be back in the realms of the fantasies in no time.
Read the cards
Dealing out your tarot cards can help you make sense of whether or not your ex will return. Although there is no specific card that tells you if your ex will come back, doing a combination reading could help. For instance, if the Two of Cups appears in your tarot reading, consider it a good sign because it is a love cup.
Of course, drawing the Wheel of Fortune card would be a great moment, as it offers luck for whatever your future holds.
The Eight of Wands is even more specific, offering the notion that your ex will text or call. Reading your cards doesn’t guarantee a reconciliation, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
Do your spread
Sitting down to do a full spread is another great way to lure an ex back. Focus on the following four pieces in your reading: Situation, The Challenge, Advice, and Likely Outcomes. If you get your reading using this set-up, you will see more clearly the path ahead of you. Here are some possibilities. As far as the situation is concerned, drawing a 10 of Swords would signify a complete ending, while a 2 of cups would definitely be more hopeful. When you are considering The Challenge, a Two of Wands might represent waiting or wondering, and an Ace would signify a new beginning. This would probably disappoint you in this case. As far as the Advice card, Strength in Reverse would show weakness, and you should definitely consider halting the texting. But if you manage to deal an 8 of Cups reversed, this could signify your ex is coming home. When dealing out the Likely Outcomes cards, the Three of Cups or The Star would give you hope, and these would be positive cards to draw.
Love is hard enough, and getting back a love you lost is even more difficult. By using the stars and the cards, you just might find the luck you need to lure your ex back into your life.
