Why Can't Virgo Let Go?

Let go

Actually, when a Virgo feels the time is right, they have no problem moving on. They only seem to have difficulties letting go because they don't make hasty decisions, especially when it comes to getting in or out of a romantic relationship.

The Practicality of Letting Go

Virgos are typically practical, so when a relationship doesn't seem to be working out, instead of cutting and running, they think of all the time they've invested in it and try hard to revive it. They are also perfectionists and worriers who have a hard time convincing themselves that they've made a mistake and worry that letting go would be another.

Letting Go Takes Time

Virgos can also handle any hurt or slight if they're convinced that the relationship is right. Before letting go, they will give their all and give a relationship, particularly a marriage, chance after chance. They want to be sure they're doing everything possible to make it work. They also feel a need to make a thoughtful and realistic assessment of what went wrong so they won't make the same mistakes again. All of this mental analysis and processing takes time.

How to Lose a Virgo

Losing a Virgo can be difficult unless they're ready. However, you could try what's below.

Be Honest

A Virgo appreciates honesty. If the relationship isn't working for you anymore and you think it's time to call it quits, let them know. There's a good chance a Virgo is already in the midst of assessing its potential, will agree with you, and the breakup will be mutual.

You're Not Right for Them

Explain to them that they are a wonderful person with some great traits, but that all of their efforts are wasted because you aren't a person who wants or appreciates what they offer in a relationship.

Make Yourself Scarce

In the end, you might have to make yourself scarce and go on with your life. If you have to interact with them, be dismissive, vague and intellectually boring. It may take time, but eventually, a Virgo will get the message and move on.

Here One Day, Gone the Next

Virgo fusses, worries and analyzes what they did wrong. They'll try to do everything they can to save and fix the relationship, but once they reach the point of being 110% sure that the relationship is not healthy for them, they really have no problem letting go. As a matter of fact, they might just disappear to avoid a messy scene.

Not Just a Virgo Sun

Of course, there are Virgos who will cut and run at the first sign of trouble. Keep in mind that what's written above is about generic Virgo. While the Sun gives a general overview, the Moon, the planets, and the Houses, as well as other important points and the aspects make a difference. There is also each Virgo's life experience to consider. Sun sign astrology can be fun and give you a clue about the energy that directs a person's life, but every Virgo is much more than their Virgo Sun.
