If you want to know why you've been ghosted and you obviously can't ask the ghoster, don't worry. The zodiac can tell you everything you've ever wanted to know. In addition to determining your greatest fears, explaining your intimacy style, and making sense of your kissing technique, a good astrology chart can also double as a relationship expert. The stars have a lot to say.

Getting ghosted is especially rough because there are an infinite number of things you could have done wrong. Rather than spending all day analyzing everything you flubbed, let the sky tell you what happened. There's no shame in being dumped as long as you learn from your mistakes.

Aries - You Moved Too Fast

As an Aries, you're a natural go-getter. You tend to dive head first into any situation, and you dislike a slow-pace or delay. Your impatience and ambition apply to your relationships as well, and you may have been chomping at the bit to take your relationship to the next level.

In your rush to the altar, you may have missed the part where no one proposed. On the bright side, you'll be quick to move on from your reluctant lover, and you'll probably find your next beau before the stars even have time to align.

Tauruses are known to have strong emotions and staunch morals. As a Taurus, you're probably a relationship person who serially dates rather than casually hooking up. You don't like to be alone, and you can end up depending heavily on your partner. Maybe you texted too much; maybe you spent too much time together; maybe you left a voicemail at 2AM explaining all the reasons he or she is the one. Whatever the snafu, your emotional needs were not being met by this Casper-like ghost. 

You may find yourself having a difficult time moving on from what you thought was a deep relationship. But as a practical and grounded person, you'll take the right steps to detach yourself and find someone who also cried 17 times during Inside Out

Gemini - You Were On Your Phone Too Much

Geminis have a tendency to be a bit all over the place. They're restless, easily bored, and extremely sociable and communicative. If you're a Gemini, you probably have six different group chats to rotate through and too many plans for one night. The downside of being a social butterfly is that your relationships can lack depth, as you bounce from thing to thing rather than focusing your energy on one person and one relationship.

As a result, your date probably thought they were playing second fiddle to the Snapchat video you opened during dessert. Try to stay in the moment and prioritize the person you're with, terrifying as it may be.

Cancer - They Didn't Get You

You were likely ghosted because you and said ghost just never clicked on a deeper level. As a Cancer, you can be more reserved, and you don't open up to just anyone. Unsurprisingly, the social structure of dating isn't necessarily your thing. You're incredibly intuitive, but you can be so hard to get to know. Maybe small talk over drinks about how many siblings you have just isn't your forte, but so what? When someone does take the time to get to know and understand you, it will be worth the wait.
