Not that I am answering for Brian but I believe the planetary effects affect ALL. I also believe that the Mercury retrograde at this time interferes as well. Communications go crazy so you must be very careful to be sure that what you say/do is interpreted as you mean it to be.
As far as the question you posed as to if I am "waiting for him..." I am numb at the moment which makes the moving on a difficult thing. We Cancers hang on...ever look at a real Crab? We have that big pincer-claw. Once you are ours we like to keep it that way. It takes us awhile to get our bearings sometimes. "Today we're a couple--tomorrow we're not "confuses us.
I think my Aries was overwhelmed with the thought of the responsibility of committment.
Someone else here posted something about when Aries get their emotions involved, they need a time out to digest. I agree. What Aries fail to take into consideration in their "me" attitude is the consequences of their impulsive nature. If my Aries calls to try to reconcile, we certainly have trust issues now, right? So their behavior sets the relationship back a few steps.
That's provided you or me give them another chance!!!
I will ask you to try to stop being any way obsessed with what has happened. I DO know how it feels, hon. Use some "stop think" mechanism to interfere with the repeated thoughts of him.
You cant be the best YOU if your thinking is clouded and unclear. I recommend that you journal too, if you are so inclined. Whatever gets you through this time without compromising yourself. I hope this makes some sense.
