Fire is nothing to fool around with, and neither are the fire signs. So, you can imagine the possibly catastrophic scenario of randomly coming face to face with an ex during the summer.
I'm looking at you, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
The potential of disaster especially applies if the relationship ended on bad terms.
The world is a big place, but somehow, the universe will test the hell out of you and present you with the situation of running into an ex. So, like any fire, it needs to be addressed before it gets too big to put out... and no one wants to deal with that.
There are few ways fire signs can help keep their cool this summer if an old flame decides to flicker their way.
1. Don't Try To Completely Control The Situation
You can't expect to manipulate an organic situation, though; it just has to flow. The only thing you do have control over is your reaction, so keep that in mind.
2. Keep That Lifted, Enthusiastic Attitude Going Strong
Fire signs have an inspiring and passionate view on life. This will come in handy if you're running into an ex that may have broken your heart.
Life goes on, and it did for you, too. Keep the positivity flowing. We don't get to choose if those scars present themselves in our life again.
3. Don't Make Being Cordial A Chore
Because fire signs are such spontaneous and passionate souls, they tend to gravitate toward a luxurious lifestyle, and tedious chores cramp their vibes.
Needless to say, don't make being cordial with your an ex a chore, because you'll just be adding unneeded angst to the situation.
4. Trust Your Gut, But Weigh In The Outcomes
Being intuitive and listening to their gut are qualities that play out in a fire sign's everyday life. Unfortunately, they tend to skip important steps along the way.
This is not a good go-to idea when encountering an ex, because it's a situation that needs to be felt out first. Are they together with someone new? Did the relationship end in shambles?
Little questions and answers like this will give you a better idea than just relying on your gut instinct.
5. Don't Ignore How The Encounter Makes You Feel
After a breakup, all three signs share a similar instinct: to repel.
Aries will quickly move on to find someone new, possibly leaving untended emotions on the back burner.
A Sagittarius tends to just drop everything and head in the complete opposite direction. A month-long vacation, jetting off to the South of France? Heck yes.
Leos get down in the dumps and plot revenge.
With that said, running into an ex is (most likely) no picnic. Assess how it makes you feel before you implode from closeted emotions.
Like all of the other zodiac signs, fire signs have great and not-so-great qualities that all need to be taken into consideration before reacting to seeing an ex.
It may sound impossible, but you have to take control of those embers, fire signs.
