Write And Read Poetry

Take A Class
You brighten up a room and you are a creative leader. While there is no denying how unbelievable you are at your peak, after a toxic relationship it may be hard for you to rediscover that happiness.

By learning a new skill, whether that be a cooking class, a Zumba class, or a painting class, you will give yourself a chance to move forward.

Find A New Hobby
As a Virgo, you are very mature and driven. However, when you date someone, you tend to nurture your partner and help them succeed as well.

Go do it.

You have a large social circle and many beloved friends. Even when you leave a relationship, you have many others who are there for you. Yet, due to your past relationship, you may have neglected some of these friendships. Take this time to reach out to these friends and travel somewhere.
