We've all been at the crossroads in life where we've wondered whether or not that one relationship we let go could actually still work out if we give it a second chance.
With Venus, the planet of love, in retrograde this month, you may have had some of your own past lovers reach out to you recently, or maybe you've been thinking of doing so yourself.
But before you do, make sure you check to see how likely your ex is to take you back, based on their zodiac sign.
Aries: as long as it leads to sex
Aries do love to fight, as ruled by the warrior planet Mars, but they also seriously enjoy kissing and making up.
So while every breakup will end with an absolute resolve to never speak to their ex again, it will almost always be followed by — at the very least — some vengeful sex.
Taurus: forgive but never forget
As stubborn as they are, Taurus people are often very forgiving.
Once they've been wronged and decide to finally draw a line in the sand, they will forgive their exes, but they will rarely (if ever) forget.
They also are gifted at spotting a phony, so if you're thinking of making an appeal to get one back, you'd better be truly sorry.
Gemini: maybe, but not likely
Geminis are tough to pin down in the first place. So once they've let a relationship go for good, there's about a 40 to 60 percent chance they'll return to it.
They're very good at seeing all sides of a situation, but this can lead them to being taken advantage of.
Once they've been wronged, they aren't as quick to forgive as their friendly disposition might lead you to anticipate.
Cancer: absolutely (when can you move back in?)
Cancer really considers their partner a home, someone they can return to, feel safe with and be comforted by.
When a relationship falls apart in a Cancer's life, you can tell. They appear lost, un-homed and in need of settling down somewhere with someone soon.
The moment someone hints at forgiveness, they'll take them back. Maybe not right away, but they will.
Leo: you have to be joking
HA! Are you insane?
A Leo will never take back a past lover. The only reason they would leave is because they either never really felt it in the first place, or they were wronged.
And if a Leo is wronged, not only will they not take you back, but they will also make sure no one in the country makes the same mistake they did.
Virgo: after everything you've put me through?
Virgo might be willing to forgive a million slights before finally letting someone go, but once they do, the likelihood of repairing the damage is slim to .005 percent.
Not only that, but they'll also put all the blame on their ex.
And that, my friends, will hurt.
Libra: could go either way
Libra is always willing to understand there is an equal side to every situation, so the chances they'll take someone back after a long time has passed are about half and half.
In fact, since they are such desperate romantics, they're willing to overlook a lot of things.
Just don't give them a reason to hold a grudge. I have a Libra ex who hasn't spoken to me since high school.
Scorpio: probably, yes
Once a Scorpio has loved you and left you, you are dead to them.
But, there are a few zodiac signs Scorpio has trouble disconnecting with entirely.
Pisces, other Scorpios and Virgos are all signs every Scorpio will be haunted by, regardless of whether or not they want to forget them.
The chances for those three signs are a lot higher when it comes to a Scorpio returning to their ex, even if it's just for the night.
Sagittarius: not a chance
Sagittarius might make you think they'll take you back with their positively upbeat attitude, but the flip side of Sagittarius' happy-go-lucky disposition is their strict moral standards.
When they stand for something, they stand firmly. Even if they wanted to take someone back, they wouldn't on principle.
Capricorn: reunited and it feels so good
Yes, they'll be willing to give things a second chance, but there's a catch.
Capricorns are like disciplinarians with their partners, so they'll make sure that before they allow someone back into their lives, that person has learned their lesson.
So sure, they'll 100 percent take you back, but expect to be on probation for a long fucking time.
Aquarius: don't be stupid
Honestly, Aquarians are busy. They forgot about you the minute you walked out the door.
Pisces: no, but they'll think about it forever
Pisces are dreamers, so though they generally won't get back with an ex, they'll think about it for the rest of their lives.
They prefer it that way because actual reality is so much more harsh than the one they make up in their heads.
So, there you have it. Now that you've armed yourself with the information you need, I bid you all good luck.
