No time for toxic friendships and bad romances.
Cutting people out of your life is an activity that is not for the faint of heart, which these five zodiac signs are not in the slightest.
In fact, not only doesconsider them some of the most cutthroat when it comes to making friends (and actually keeping them), but they’re also some of the fiercest friends you’ll ever have.
And while it may seem like they’re more about being a little scary and not letting people in, you have to really get to know them to know why they take cutting people out of their lives so seriously.
Cutting people out of my life is not something I necessarily like doing, but I know that there are times when it’s really important.
As an Aquarius, I like surrounding myself with people who are ride or die friends.
You know, the ones who will always be there for you and will love you no matter what.
Everyone should have at least one person in their life like that. But sometimes, you come across people who seem like they’re on your side, but in reality, they’re just looking for shallow friendships.
I have met a LOT of people like this; people who I think are my friends, but they really only care about themselves, not about making lasting friendships.
And sometimes, the people you think are your best friends, or are part of your inner circle, are actually the ones you need to cut out of your life first.
Realizing someone needs to be cut out of your life, especially someone you thought was your best friend can be really hard to accept.
You never expect that the person you’ve known for years is going to end up changing into an entirely different person when you least expect it…
Then again, they could have always been like that and you’ve just never noticed. I’ll use myself as an example. One of my best friends in high school was like my other half.
She and I would do everything together and we would always text each other, even if it was just dumb stuff.
After we graduated and went on to college, I realized that we weren’t vibing on the same wavelength anymore. There wasn’t enough excitement and adventure anymore (in my opinion, at least).
It was only after a mutual friend told me that it was ALWAYS like that did I realize that I needed to cut her out of my life.
It hurt at the time, but in the end, I realized that keeping someone around who just didn’t care about making me as happy as I was willing to make her wasn’t worth it.
Cutting people out of your life is difficult and.
Not only does it take a horoscope sign who isn’t afraid to be honest even when it’s hard (like when you’re telling someone they’re not important to you anymore), but it also takes a sign who is okay with being alone, rather than surrounded by friends at all times.
Because trust me when I say there will be times when you cut all the bad people out of your life and realize that you have to start from scratch again.
But don’t worry, it isn’t impossible, but finding the right people to vibe with does take time.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries doesn’t want to waste any of her time surrounding herself with people who don’t care. She would rather have a small, tight-knit group of friends in her life than a giant group of friends, especially when thosefor her.
If you ever betray or mess up with an Aries, you can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be around for much longer. One thing that makes Aries one of the scariest when cutting people out of her life is that she won’t even think twice about it.
She doesn’t have a three strikes rule at all. Hurt her once and you’re gone for good. Her reasoning for this is that she will NOT be hurt by you or anyone else.
And if you think she isn’t serious, just show her you can’t be trusted and she’ll show you that you’re dead to her.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus won’t hesitate to cut people out of her life, but she tends to take her time going about it. She’s the type of person to think before she acts on anything, but that doesn’t mean she won’t act.
When deciding if someone is worth keeping around in her life or not, she likes to weigh the pros and cons, as well as try to dig deep within herself to see how she really feels about the whole thing.
It might take her awhile to actually go through with the whole “cutting you out of her life” part, but you can tell when she’s in her deliberation phase. Taurus tends to remove herself physically and emotionally from you until she decides what to do.
When she makes up her mind to cut you off, she’ll ghost you and never look back.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo is all about preparing herself to be the best, most successful person she can be. And she knows that to do this, it isn’t just about what’s inside her that matters, it’s also about the company she keeps.
This is why she likes to divide her time between hanging out with friends and spending time alone – she wants to get to know herself as well as she knows her friends, and vice versa.
When Leo cuts people out of her life for good, it’s because she is trying to leave her bad influences and sh*tty friends behind. There’s no reason for her to surround herself with people who will only bring her down.
In order to not jeopardize her future of success, she figures it’s just easier to cut you out of her life now instead of later. If that means she has less people in her life, she’d rather be alone than with people who suck.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Getting into Scorpio’s inner circle is like trying to get into the hottest club in the city; there might be a lot of people who try to schmooze their way in, but in the end, only a select few are worthy enough to be a
Scorpio is not in the business of taking her inner circle lightly, so you should be honored to be a part of her crowd. That said, just because you’re in doesn’t mean you can stay forever.
Scorpio likes keeping her friend group small because she feels like it makes her feel more comfortable opening up about herself and sharing her secrets. When she finds out that you or anyone else isn’t trustworthy or has done her wrong, she will cut you out of her life, and fast.
Scorpio takes trust and friendship very seriously, and if you don’t, then you don’t belong in her life.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is always looking for the person who will always look for adventure with her and will always be understanding of the person she is. So, when she turns around and cut you out of her life for good, she likes to believe that it’s for a good reason.
Anyone who doesn’t have a deep understanding of how Aquarius’ mind works might feel like she’s just cutting people out of her life for the fun of it, but there is a method to it.
The two types of people Aquarius can’t stand in life are rude people and boring people. So, by that logic, if you would rather sit at home and do nothing or gossip about people for the heck of it, chances are pretty good that Aquarius doesn’t want you around.
While she’s cutting you out of her life, she’s also letting you know exactly why she’s doing it just so there isn’t any confusion later on.
