The Zodiac Sign Most Likely to Obsess About an Ex

Have you ever had an ex who refused to lay your relationship to rest after you split up? Or perhaps you’re someone who spends much too much time on your ex’s Facebook page.

It’s never easy to let go of someone you care about, especially if you didn’t want the relationship to end, but some people may struggle more than others. Perhaps it has something to do with astrology.

Read on to find out which zodiac sign is most likely to be obsessed with their ex, from too connected to completely smitten.


Taureans are incredibly loyal by nature, which heightens their want to know what their ex-partners are up to, whether it’s been a month or five years after they split up.

From first romances to casual flings, this earth sign prefers to keep tabs on former lovers—often for the purpose of nostalgia rather than anything malevolent.

“Taureans want to know who you are after the breakup, whether you find someone, or how you spend your time,” explains Emily Newman, a professional astrologer at Best Of Psychic Reader.

“Because Taurus values love and relationships, having something so special taken away from them quickly can be devastating.” So they’ll be obsessed with remembering you.”


Virgos are notorious for their nervous and worried demeanor, and they are prone to beating themselves up when something bad happens to them, particularly a breakup.

“Virgos are so inherently self-critical that they perceive a breakup as a negative reflection of themselves,” explains Rachel Clare, an astrologer for Mystic Sense.

“The sign will agonize over all of the things they did wrong and how they could’ve done so much more to save the relationship, when in reality, some things just aren’t meant to last.”

Because of this earth sign’s chronic overthinking, “it’s not uncommon for Virgos to take to obsessively scrolling through their exes’ socials.”


This intellectual and creative sign has a spiritual side as well. They frequently believe in things like soulmates and destiny, so when a relationship doesn’t go as planned, they can become obsessive.

“Air signs see life through such a unique lens and usually have a spiritual side to them,” Clare explains. “Because of their spiritual tendencies, Aquarians are prone to falling hard and fast for people, believing that everyone is their soulmate.”

As a result, Aquarians can become obsessed with ex-lovers and always want to know what they’re up to.”

A broken-hearted Aquarian is probably scrolling down memory lane right now, just to reminisce and consider the “what ifs.”‘


Leos enjoy being the focus of attention and crave rapid fulfillment. When they are going through a breakup, they frequently check their ex’s social media accounts to ensure that they are the true winners of the split. After all, they are the “shining stars of the zodiac,” as Clare describes them.

“A Leo’s confident mentality extends further into Leo’s dating life, with them believing it is impossible for an ex to move on,” she explains.

“Everything is a competition for this self-righteous fire sign, and because of this, Leos are likely to check on their exes’ socials to ensure that they aren’t being outdone.”


Pisces are hopeless romantics who fall madly in love with anyone who offers them compassion and love. They have difficulty moving on when they should because they are one of the zodiac’s most emotional and sensitive signs.

When a relationship ends, this water sign tends to check in on their former in the hopes of winning them back one day.”Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusions and dreams,” Clare explains.

“This means that they frequently focus on the ‘what could have beens’ in a previous relationship rather than the harsh realities.” In short, they need to stop miserably stalking their past and start looking forward to a better future.”


Scorpios adore love, and who can blame them? This big-hearted sign will fall head over heels quickly, but will also have a difficult time letting go.

They will seize any opportunity to learn the whereabouts of a former sweetheart, making them the zodiac sign most likely to obsess over an ex.

“When it comes to those they care about, this mysterious, intense water sign is possessive and fiercely protective,” Clare adds. “They will go to any length to safeguard a partner.” However, when a breakup occurs, this can cause some complications.”

Because a breakup can elicit such intense emotions in Scorpios, they may become preoccupied with talking about their ex to anyone who will listen.

They may not even realize they have been going through their ex-lover’s Instagram feed for hours on end until they “like” something from 2017. Oops!
