Zodiac Signs That Can't Stop Cheating, Ranked From Most To Least Likely

It’s the sad truth, but people born under all zodiac signs cheat on the person they love every single day. And while some like to focus on the most unfaithful female zodiac signs, the truth is that the men of the zodiac are perfectly capable of cheating as well.

Of course, everyone has their own definition of cheating, and there are about a million different actions that can fall under the category of infidelity. Maybe for you, just flirting with someone other than your partner is adultery. Or maybe, something they thought was just a "harmless" peck on the check counts in your eyes. Or maybe, in your opinion, the only thing that qualifies is full-on sexual intercourse.

Whatever the case of infidelity, it feels horrible to be cheated on, especially after you fall in love, because it makes you develop trust issues that make you wary of your future relationships, and it's harder to let people in as much because you don't want to get hurt again.

People cheat for a variety of reasons — unhappiness in the relationship, seeking out new experiences, having insecurity issues, wanting revenge, or falling out of love. But whatever the reason, it always ends up a mess.

To prepare ourselves for the real possibility that this could happen to us, it's important to learn the common red flags that someone is likely to be a cheater ahead of time.

And one of the telltale signs that someone is likely to cheat not just once, but over and over and over again, might be their zodiac sign.

Which zodiac sign is most likely to cheat?

The results of a study found Libra, Gemini and Capricorn to be the zodiac signs most likely to cheat in relationships, while Scorpio proved to be the most faithful.

Now, not everyone who belongs to one astrological grouping is going to cheat, nor are people born under those signs who are less likely to cheat will end up doing so.

However, there do seem to be some zodiac signs that are more prone to temptations, and taking a closer look at the stars can help us better understand why.

Here are each of the male and female zodiac signs likely to be serial cheaters — and why (ranked in order from most to least likely):

1. Libra

(September 23 - October 22)

Libras are huge flirts, which is why so many people are hesitant to enter into relationships with them to begin with. And maybe they are right to be hesitant.

While you would think the flirting would stop once Libra is in a committed relationship, it doesn’t. And even though it's usually harmless, sometimes it does go too far.

2. Gemini 

(May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is very needy in a relationship, so if you can’t give her around-the-clock attention, she'll find someone who can.

Gemini women can be pretty indecisive so she likes to have options, and if there's still something you’re giving her that she wants to keep around, she’ll keep you around to get it.

In terms of zodiac signs who aren't loyal, Gemini is most likely to cheat if she wants it all and one or two partners can’t give her that. Who is to say that she won't go out to find a third?

3. Capricorn 

(December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn looks for something very specific in her relationships — to gain as much as she can from them. This means she's looking for happiness, support, stability, and maybe even status.

Because all of this can be hard to find in one partner, when she does find it, she will not be one to risk losing it.

4. Taurus 

(April 20 - May 20)

The reason Taurus won't cheat is that staying faithful to her partner benefits her the most.

Having one relationship means only having to make an effort with one person, and there's no extra energy being spent sneaking around and coming up with excuses on the spot.

Yes, Taurus is honestly too lazy to even think about cheating. But that’s a good thing, right? Selfish, maybe, but good.

5. Cancer

(June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is by far one of the most faithful zodiac signs, and is the second least likely of all the zodiac signs to cheat.

Family is the most important thing to her, and she's always looking for steady and emotional support. She likes to feel comfortable and secure, and cheating would make her feel anxious and on edge all the time.

Because some of these reasons also come off as benefiting only her, she doesn't take the final spot on the list, but she will not cheat and you can rely on that.

6. Leo 

(July 23 - August 22)

Not only is Leo dramatic, but she needs to be the center of attention at all times.

If you’re not treating her like the queen she believes she is, and especially if she feels like you're beginning to ignore her, she will do everything she can think of to make sure you start paying attention to her again.

7. Virgo 

(August 23 - September 22)

Virgo has never even thought of straying from the person she's with. Maybe it’s because with her already busy plate she can’t even think about sneaking around with someone else.

Virgo is an honest sign you can trust and, in the end, if she was unhappy, she would tell you and end the relationship rather than cheat on you. She’s not a fan of drama and she isn't about to be the source of it in her own life.

8. Pisces 

(February 19 - March 20)

This will be shocking, but the zodiac sign most likely to cheat is Pisces.

Normally sensitive and super-emotional, she can’t help but act upon the smallest mood swing. If she's mad at you and is out for the night, there’s no saying what might happen.

At the same time, she's less likely to leave a relationship even if she's unhappy due to her fear of hurting the one she's with. Ironically, she may choose instead to stray. Maybe deep down inside she's hoping to be caught cheating.

9. Aries 

(March 21- April 19)

Aries is committed to her partner without a doubt.

Sometimes she may come off as rude and harsh, though, as she’s not the best when it comes to expressing her love and commitment to her partner. But that doesn't mean she's off somewhere having an affair.

She's loyal through and through. Plus, she knows how horrible she would feel if she was the one being cheated on, and she could never put another person through that — ever.

10. Sagittarius 

(November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius has some pretty high moral standards, and would never want to do anything that's going to ruin her reputation.

Don’t be surprised if early on in a relationship Sagittarius suggests an open relationship and makes it clear that she plans on seeing other people.

When she’s open and honest about what she’s doing and what she's expecting in your relationship at this point, it’s not cheating.

11. Aquarius 

(January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius might not physically cheat, but may start sending flirty texts to an old fling or lead someone on during a night out to see how many free drinks she can get out of it.

And while it’s never physical, some people consider this to be emotional infidelity, so it's certain her partner wouldn't be too happy if they knew this was going on.

12. Scorpio 

(October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio can be the most loving and committed partner you ever have and stay that way forever — as long as you do the same for her.

The moment she finds out that you have been unfaithful to her, even in the smallest way possible, all bets are off.

You have lost her loyalty, and Scorpio is not opposed to revenge. Watch out!
