GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, for you to even be in a monogamous relationship, to begin with, can be a shock. You’re definitely not the kind of zodiac sign to lock it down quickly without looking over all of your options first, but just because you’re happy now doesn’t mean things still can’t change later on. You tend to have a pretty short attention span when it comes to love, which only spells trouble for you.
If you’re driven to cheat on your partner, it’s because that short attention span has finally caught up with your zodiac sign. You would much rather grab your squad and check out the cuties at your local bar than sit at home with your partner and watch Game of Thrones for the hundredth week in a row.
FOMO is real for you and you don’t want to be known as the one who just disappeared from the squad now that you’re in a relationship. Your needs and wants change constantly and it’s hard for you to control your impulses. Add yourself to the list of zodiac signs most likely to cheat.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you need that deep emotional connection in a relationship. Forget about all the intimacy and romance, conversations and jokes; if you can feel that big swell of emotion whenever you even so much as think about your partner, then you know it’s for real. You’re the kind of person who is looking for their other half in a relationship, and you want to constantly feel loved and wanted.
As a very intuitive zodiac sign, you can tell when things are off and you’re not afraid to listen to your gut if you think it’s trying to tell you something important. Any sense of hesitation in your relationship can drive you to cheat because you know that the right relationship would never make you feel anything less than adored.
You might still feel incredible guilt for cheating on your partner, but you also desperately want someone to make you feel whole. It’s not something you want to resort to, but when love is on the line, you’ll make an exception.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re fiercely loyal to your partner, no matter how many highs and lows your relationship goes through. Your horoscope is the one who gladly tells your friends and family that you and your partner have been together for years on end because there’s nothing better than knowing you can conquer anything life throws at you with your partner by your side.
The word “cheating” is a four-letter word to you. Your biggest fear is losing your soulmate and you would never do anything to jeopardize that. That said, the only reason you would be driven to cheat is if you only realize what you’re doing too late to stop it.
You love having a tight squad, but you also love meeting new people. And while you’re working on cultivating these friendships, it can be easy to slip into an easy, flirty “thing” that feels safe but probably isn’t. Cheating on your boo with a friend can happen, whether you want to admit it or not.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, relationships for you are almost methodical. You already know what kind of partner you’re looking for when you start dating and when you find that special person, you expect to be with them for a long time.
That said, your well-thought out for love includes having a partner who puts just as much effort into the relationship as you do. If that’s not happening, then neither are you and your boo. If you feel like you’re being driven to cheat, you’re the kind of person who feels like they can justify it. You want that hard-working partner who sees your relationship as an investment.
If your zodiac sign can feel at any time that it just ain’t happening anymore, you’ve probably already written off your boo, planned how to break up with them, and given some thought to who can make you happy. Whether you want to admit it or not, you have a backup plan in case this relationship goes wrong and cheating is just a way to find what you really want, not necessarily to break hearts.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you look for your best friend in a relationship. Someone who can bring that much-needed balance into your life and never make you second-guess their intentions. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it’s safe to say you are looking for the fairytale romance to sweep you off your feet. You want to be loved for exactly who you are, warts and all.
Your zodiac sign thinks of cheating like your favorite fairytale — if the glass slipper doesn’t fit, you need to find someone it does. You know cheating sounds bad, but you can justify it as a means to an end. You know that it’s going to take some time to find The One, but you never stop looking.
You also aim to please and if making someone happy means you might just find that special person, you’re willing to keep things casual for the cause. Just remember that cheating is still morally wrong, no matter how well you explain away your actions.
