Let's face it. We love who we love, and it does not matter what any human being says. As a psychic love advisor and student of astrology, I try to focus on the reality presented to me by each client. Below, I have compiled astrological patterns of each of the 12 Zodiac signs for you to study for yourself. Please note that no person, or sign, is absolute. Each of us has many layers as revealed in our Birth or Natal Charts.
If you are in a relationship and find yourself having issues around trust or fidelity, find your Sun, Moon, and especially your Mercury in your Natal Chart. Until then, use this guide to discover where things may be going wrong from your point of view.
Which Zodiac Signs Cheat?
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Ruled by the magnificent red planet Mars, and named after the Roman god of war, Aries is our premier sign. It introduces us to Spring and the entire Zodiac Wheel. Many believe that each sign learns off the ones before, so Aries, being at the top of our horoscopic totem pole, boldly takes the biggest risks. Love is extremely important to an Aries, however so is big passion. It's not easy for an Aries to find someone they feel worthy of being committed to, so when it happens, "look out fireworks!" When an Aries is drawn to you it's hard, heavy, and hot. Aries like things kinky and can be impetuous when they surrender to something. But, Aries are known to fall out of love pretty fast. If things become mundane, they are inclined to roam with little remorse.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Venus is the planet of love, money, indulgence, and beauty. This is the ruling planet for Taurus. The Celestial Bull is obsessed with romance, becomes visually intoxicated, and craves fine things. A Taurus needs rose petals in their bath, candlelit rendezvous, extraordinary gifts, and extravagant favors. However, Taurus lovers have no issue giving the same. Taurus has a reciprocal love. If things start to feel one-sided and lack luster, a Taurus can't help but gravitate to the next shiny thing. If you are with a Taurean and find your relationship has run its course, a common reason for this is being pushed to the point of exhaustion because of their lack of independence.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
One of Mercury's domiciles is Gemini. This sign is chatty and social, but also intellectual. It makes sense that this air sign is ruled by the planet of communication and logic. Geminis are usually articulate and thoughtful. Geminis can be very needy in relationships and crave a lot of attention. Geminis love being taught new things and may pine and yearn for their lover in a way that seems irrational at times. Because of this it may take a little while for Geminis to even get into relationships. They want and need so much. For a Gemini to settle down and then turn around and cheat, means there has been a lot of disappointment leading up to that point. In defense of this sign, Geminis are known for their duality not their duplicity. Even though Geminis seem to be cheaters at a much higher rate than many other signs, it's not because they didn't try to make things work. Geminis can feel let down in a way that resembles a sunken ship.
Cancer (June 21 – July 21)
Cancers are ruled by the Moon and represented by the crab. This says so much! Cancerians can be moody and protective of loved ones. Cancers do not like feeling vulnerable, take their relationships seriously, and must feel supported. If not, the Cancer may enter into a well schemed and properly connived long love affair. Most Cancers don't want to let anyone down so to discover a Cancer partner has been lying and keeping secrets is especially painful and shocking. Many Cancers are known brooders and it can become exhausting to signs that need full reciprocation. Cancer is a sign that gets cheated on very often.
Leo (July 22 – August 21)
Leo loves being the center of attention and often see themselves as astrological royalty. It's no surprise the domicile for the Sun is Leo. Leos are ruled by the heart and are constantly falling in love. Many have been known to jump from relationship to relationship. Leos are often very good-looking people with grandiose personalities. Leos adore praise and recognition. Unbelievably, Leos are not necessarily prone to infidelity, but if one does cheat it's usually because they are seduced into it. Leo never wants to disappoint an admirer.
Virgo (August 22 – September 21)
Mercury is the planet of communication, logic, and reason. As the ruling planet of Virgo, they can spot the slightest of details (good or bad) and slowly build a wall of either solid bonding or resentments. Virgos are hyper-aware of pretty much everything. Represented by The Virgin, Virgos are known to be ethereal in looks, but take note that she actually may not be as chaste as she looks. Virgos are known to stay in serious relationships despite how bad they are and build another relationship (even marriage) on the side. Virgos tend to be idealistic about romance, some continuously searching for the perfect match. There might be an assembly line of secret crushes, suiters, and clandestine lovers throughout Virgo's entire life. Virgo is a very duplicitous sign. Because of this, many Virgos walk around brokenhearted and melancholy in spite of what they let the world see. Virgos are charged by relationships. If you are with a Virgo and feel like things are fading and your eye begins to wander, just remember what you are getting from them is exactly what you put in.
Libra (September 22 – October 21)
Libras are represented with the scales, hourglass, and justice. They are housed and fueled by the planet Venus. Libras are notorious flirts by nature, as a result, some people are afraid to enter into relationships with them. Their flirtation and suggestiveness can be over the top. Libras are also the sign most prone to infidelity. Once in a relationship, Libras are known to be low key and seemingly balanced, however they can cheat with ease. Many people need a really good reason to be unfaithful, however not necessarily a Libra. Once in a relationship, Libras are known to be extremely romantic and don't have to be disenchanted to stray. Libras are known to keep doors open with exes and to continue to weigh their options. If you are with a Libra and feel like you want someone else, it is a distinct possibility they have a queue of potentials anyway.
Scorpio (October 22 – November 21)
Scorpios are full of controversy. Some teach Mars is its ruling planet and others teach Pluto. If you use both planets we are dealing with layers and layers of mystery, extreme personality, and many dimensions of character. Represented by the venomous, shadow dwelling scorpion, Scorpios crave intimacy, power, and control. Scorpios desire an intense connection with their lovers. Because of this, it is not often you find a cheating Scorpio. Of course, like in all signs, it happens, just not as often as people assume. Often a Scorpio will cruelly leave you hanging, wondering what happened, when they are over a relationship. The ghosting is actually done as a punishment. That's how dark and dominating some Scorpios can be. Typically, when a Scorpio cheats, it is because of a deep emotional wound, with sex not being a primary focus.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarians are ruled by the planet Jupiter. "The Archer" needs freedom. Living to explore, loving to roam, longing for the World, if a Sagittarius feels like their independence is being compromised they will seek out interesting and unfamiliar territory. They are obstinate and sneaky. From wild long distance sextings/hookups to brazen local public affairs, a Sagittarius will prove to the universe that they cannot be owned. Sagittarius are going to do what they want to do regardless of what anyone thinks or says. They will sometimes be found acting more brash during the Sagittarius Sun. If you find yourself ready to cheat on a Sagittarius, they have usually already left you behind.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are the greatest of negotiators. Equipped with the gift of gab, the Goat, ruled by Saturn, if there is a Devil, he is a Capricorn. Capricorns love rules, so they can use them to their benefit and bend them to their will. In love, Capricorns need things to be practical and to "make sense." Because of this they may be loyal as long as everyone is productive. But if not, this could be their justification to stray. Capricorns always have to be right. Some Capricorns treat cheating as trial and error, to see what the next best place is to go. A Capricorn can be so self-focused on what is good for them, they do not even realize when the person they are committing to is over it and looking elsewhere. If a Capricorn discovers you are being unfaithful, it may turn into an all-out war regardless of what part they may have played.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Uranus and Saturn rule Aquarians. Contrary to popular assumption they are not a water sign but an air sign. With Uranus as a ruling planet, Aquarians are very original, innovative deep thinkers, with disruptive ideas that mean something. Since Saturn (Lord of Time) is also on their side, Aquarians are known to be very responsible and down to earth. There is a bit of contradiction in this "progressive yet conservative" concept, so the duality in the Aquarius horoscopic DNA makes for phenomenal individuals. This can make it extremely easy for an Aquarius to have a marriage and a lover. And for the Aquarius, if their intimate needs (both mental and physical) are not being met, they will definitely solve that issue with truly little regret. On the contrary, if an Aquarius finds out you have been cheating there is little to no forgiveness. An Aquarius is usually a very self-aware sign and may not try to understand how things went awry.
Pisces (February 19 – March 21)
Most relationships begin with two wonderful people feeling extremely enamored. There's lots of passion and conversations that can go on all day and night. Many Pisces exist this way by default. They are full of fantasy, major crushes, and always falling in love. However, when they win their love prize, many have no idea what to do with it. If they don't have a partner that keeps on top of things, relationships fall flat almost immediately. Pisces are remarkably familiar with both sides of infidelity. Piceans are ruled by Neptune and Jupiter. This is a dreamy watery sign and has a whole lot to give to the right person. Both sensitive and sweet, it can be easy for Pisceans to be used if the wrong person gets ahold of them. If a Pisces feels unappreciated they are known to take things out on themselves or be swept up by the next pretty face.
Please remember we all have many layers and no two of us are 100% alike. Your Zodiac sign may indicate tendencies towards cheating or faithfulness, but it is really only the beginning to grasp the parameters of our astrological makeup. There is still nothing like a full natal chart and a skilled reading to really start to connect all the dots and paint your specific picture.
