The Star Signs Most Likely to Have an Affair
The ugly truth is that, when in a long-term committed relationship, most people find it hard to stay completely faithful to their significant other and often end up cheating. However, the frequency of the cheating and the type of infidelity committed vary from star sign to star sign. So read on to find out which star signs are most prone to infidelity…of the long-term variety and thus most likely to get involved in an affair while in a committed relationship.
Aries is hardly the most faithful star sign out there – it is known! They can even get caught living a triple life – let alone a double one. And the reason why is simple: When the novelty wears off and their initial enthusiasm starts to wane, they seek to re-experience the passion they felt at the beginning of their committed relationship with someone new. If you manage to keep the flame in your relationship alive, your Aries is unlikely to go looking for… another flame! And if you eventually grow tired of constantly having to come up with ways to keep their attention exclusively focused on you, just start saying no to them – a lot! They don’t take no for an answer, so they’ll focus all their energy on turning your nos into yeses – they’ll be left with no time to pursue other… interests!
Taurus is the star sign you don’t see it coming from… until you do! They may be part of the fixed-mode group, but their dislike of change cuts both ways. They tend to be faithful, but if they somehow end up living a double life, chances are they will let both relationships drag on indefinitely – they find it hard to break out of situations they’ve grown used to. In order to make sure your Taurus remains faithful to you, you need to remember that their ruler is Venus, the planet of sensual pleasures; as long as you manage to keep all five of their senses satisfied, they won’t stray.
It would be a joke to say it’s not like Gemini to get involved in affairs. Their playful, flirtatious streak is legendary, and their reputation for having a wandering eye precedes them! And yet, reputations can be somewhat deceiving, as sometimes Gemini can turn out to be more faithful even than Virgo. All it takes is a partner that can keep them mentally stimulated, has a listening ear, and makes them feel like they are taken seriously and treated with respect.
Cancer may be sentimental, but the truth is that if they get their feelings hurt by something their partner did (whether knowingly or not), they may react in a very selfish manner and decide to do what’s best for them – and them alone. In which case they are very likely to start an affair in the hopes of having their insecurities appeased or getting what they were denied by their partner from someone else. So the best way to ensure your Cancer remains faithful to you is to constantly encourage them to openly talk about their feelings instead of bottling them up.
Leo’s mode is fixed, so those born under the star sign of Leo usually make faithful partners and don’t have a wandering eye. They focus all their energy and passion on their committed relationship, and treat their significant other as an object of admiration. If, however, they feel that their attention and affection are not being reciprocated, they’re quite likely to seek validation elsewhere by starting an affair that can serve as a confidence boost and make them feel special. All you have to do to make sure your Leo only has eyes for you is make them feel admired and cherished.
Virgo is one of the most faithful star signs of the zodiac. Due to their giving, altruistic nature, they’re usually entirely focused on keeping their partner satisfied and making their existing relationship as good as it can be. Plus, wasting time is a no-no for them, so ephemeral or superficial relationships are not really their thing. It is usually when they feel that their generosity is being abused and their relationship has no future that they start contemplating giving a relationship with…another fish in the sea a go. And even then, they don’t really start an affair; they make a point of avoiding stressful, complicated situations, so they simply immediately move on.
Libra is an air star sign, which basically means that if their romantic partner doesn’t share their need for communication and socialising, they are very likely to go looking for someone who does. Another thing with Libra is that they often feel the need to be generously complimented on their looks because they usually take very good care of their appearance. When they feel like their looks go unappreciated, they are overcome with a sense of inadequacy that leads them to seek validation elsewhere. So, all in all, it usually takes no more than a few minor compromises and a couple of heartfelt compliments every other day for them to remain satisfied with what they have and, therefore, faithful to their partner.
Scorpio may be widely seen as the sex machine of the zodiac, but the truth is that they’re unlikely to get involved in an affair. Their element is water and their mode is fixed, so they’re not particularly fond of change – which is also why they usually seek relationships that provide them with emotional security. Of course, their tendency to secrecy, combined with their passionate temperament, may occasionally lead them to start an affair, but if their committed relationship has an element of mystery to it, they’re generally unlikely to go looking for it elsewhere.
As a fiery and mutable star sign, Sagittarius wants their romantic relationships to be passionate and adventurous; if their partner cannot satisfy their thirst for thrills, they will waste no time starting to look for someone who can. In fact, they’re capable of starting an affair even when their committed relationship perfectly meets their needs! And that’s because their tendency to cheat doesn’t stem from their adventurous temperament so much as from their need to feel free. When they don’t feel tied down, they’re unlikely to stray.
When in a committed relationship, Capricorn is unlikely to start an affair. After all, their time is very precious to them, so they’re extremely selective with where they invest it. However, there still are certain qualities to their nature that can lead them down the road of an affair. Even though they seemingly strive to remain in control of their life at all costs, the truth is that they don’t mind… losing control every once in a while! If someone attractive attempts to seduce them and helps them take their mind off their burdens, they may find it hard to resist the temptation of starting an affair with them.
Even though Aquarius’ element is air, their mode is fixed, so they’re not particularly big on change. However, they are extremely intelligent, so they need a partner who can keep them intellectually stimulated – a partner with whom they feel they can really connect. If their committed relationship is lacking in that department, they’ll start looking for another lover without second thoughts. They also need to feel like their significant other is not only their romantic partner, but also their friend; unless your Aquarius feels like they can be themselves around you, they will almost surely look for someone new.
Pisces has a reputation for being romantic, sentimental and self-sacrificing in their relationships – a reputation that is largely well deserved considering their watery nature. At the same time, though, their ruler is Neptune, which means that they are prone to escapism. So it’s not unlike them to start an affair as a means of escaping the pressure of the responsibilities that come with being in a long-term committed relationship. If, however, there’s something elusive about you and you avoid calling them back to reality too often, your Pisces is unlikely to go looking for an affair.
