Get Over a Killer Crush With These Zodiac Signs Tips
You can control how you love but you cant control whom you love. Hearts have their own logic, and its not always morally driven. Maybe youre taken, or your crush is taken – or both. Maybe its a workplace romance thats against the rules or youre bent on a besty and taking it out of the friend zone would be too big a risk. If your heart is going gangbusters over an inappropriate match, heres how you should quell the throbbing.
ARIES SUN SIGN (March 21-April 19). Deny access.
Headstrong Aries isnt likely to sit and reason out why a crush is a bad idea. Youre all about action. Your best bet is not to be in a position to take it. Out-of-sight-out-of-mind is a tactic that will work the best for you. Avoid your crush like bunnies avoid owls: Keep your head down and run like hell!
TAURUS SUN SIGN (April 20-May 20). Sensory indulgence.
Sensual Taurus longs for the physical chemistry of love and lives for the way everything lights up and buzzes when that connection is made. A close second would be chocolate … or a massage … or those magical candles that smell like Moroccan figs … or Nina Simone plus champagne … or…. You get the idea.
GEMINI SUN SIGN (May 21-June 21). Get conversational.
Of all of the signs, youre the one voted most likely to get over a crush through talk therapy. This is best done with an actual professional, though you can also talk it through with a trusted friend. Trusted AND proven trustworthy — because inappropriate crushes are the last thing you want leaked by a confidante who cant keep a secret.
CANCER SUN SIGN (June 22-July 22). Wallow at home.
When you cant get over it, the best way is to go through it. Use your heartache as an excuse to binge on back-to-back episodes of Parks and Recreation or read romance novels until your vibrator runs out of batteries. It wont belong until your mind and heart will get bored of the pity-party and be ready to venture out again.
LEO SUN SIGN (July 23-Aug. 22). Get a taste of reality.
What happens is that you idealize people and your crush is about a fantasy connection. Often, if you spend more time with your crush (pretending — acting, and you are very good at acting — like you dont have a crush) the reality of the person and the awfulness of the inappropriate nature of the relationship will set in.
VIRGO SUN SIGN (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Follow the thought.
Mercury-ruled Virgo excels at mental exercises and can embrace theoretical knowledge better than many other signs. Vividly imagine the chaos that would happen were your bad-idea relationship to develop. Follow it scene-by-scene through its worst-case scenario. Do this repeatedly until youre deterred.
LIBRA SUN SIGN (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Assess your reputation.
What will people think? You dont live your life by that phrase by any stretch, and yet you are politically and socially so astute that it would be unnatural for you not to let your reputation be a huge consideration. Youll have more influence when your record is clean. Let that be your mantra.
SCORPIO SUN SIGN (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Give in.
Oscar Wilde suggested that, “The only way to resist temptation is to yield to it. I can resist everything but temptation.” Keep in mind that that attitude got him thrown in jail once or twice. Use your intuition to make the most accurate assessment of risk-versus-reward, and then decide whether you really want to face the consequences.
SAGITTARIUS SUN SIGN (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Get distance.
Travel is the answer to most anything that ails Sagittarius. A change of scenery changes everything. You lighten up, you get perspective, you understand what you want from your life and your home. This crush will just seem like an adventure you decided not to take because you were on a better one.
CAPRICORN SUN SIGN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Snap out of it.
The way that Capricorn gets over things is something that most other signs wouldnt be able to handle. It is best expressed by Cher in the gorgeous movie Moonstruck when she slaps Nicolas Cage and barks, “Snap out of it!” If anyone can simply snap out of it, you can. But whos going provide the slap? Thats the question.
AQUARIUS SUN SIGN (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Think of those youll hurt.
The only thing you want more than your own pleasure is the absence of pain for others — especially those you love. When you focus on the potential heartbreak that this relationship choice will cause to those around you, it will be a huge deterrent. At your root, youre all about the common good.
PISCES SUN SIGN (Feb. 19-March 20). Get grossed out.
Your spiritual generosity may have been causing you not to focus on your crushs bad points — theyre there. Use your psychic eye to hone in on them and proceed to get grossed out by the yucky humanity we all must deal with (when were dealing in reality.) Does your crush have horrible taste in music? Too much ear wax? Let those negatives really stand out to scrub against all the gooey love emotions youve built up.
