The modern relationships, where you meet people online, talk to them and get committed involves a lot of cheaters as well. It is very common these days but the hardest part is to understand whether the person is loyal or not. Though you can never pinpoint someone directly, here are some signs from the zodiacs which can help you analyze your partners.

Where does cheating start?

Most cheating starts with emotions and lying. Cheaters will often lie to you and hide the truth of their actions by gaslighting when you ask them if they are being unfaithful.

Cheating can also start with certain issues in the relationship.

If your relationship makes your partner unhappy or your sex life isn't as alive as it once was, your partner might start cheating to find happiness or sexual chemistry with someone else.

What are the reasons people cheat on their partners?

Some people say they never thought they would cheat, but then they got an itch and had to scratch it.

Others claim they were bored in their relationship and thought sneaking around with someone new would help spice up their sex life at home.

Then, there are those who blame alcohol, saying they were so drunk they didn't even know what they were doing; the other person came on strong and they didn't know how to stop it.

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.

How can I see if my partner is cheating on me?

If your partner gives you any reason to believe they are cheating, you should confront them. Listen and pay attention to the way they respond as well because that will tell you if they are lying or not.

There's also another way to see if your partner is cheating on you, and that's through online communication trackers that you can download on your phone without being noticed, or without them knowing you're tracking them.

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.

One of the tell-tale signs that someone is likely to cheat not just once, but over and over and over again, might be their zodiac sign.

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.

Gemini, you have a reputation for being untrustworthy…and it’s not totally unwarranted. Your sign is that of the twins, representing your dual nature. It’s easy for you to live a double life in both a really cool and really shady way—you’re the type that can blend easily with multiple social groups, but also the type that can secretly start two families.

Establish healthy relationship boundaries with your partner(s)—hey, ethical non-monogamy may be awesome for you—and use your magical powers for good, not evil.

Gemini is most likely to cheat on a sign like Pisces, who’s a sentimental and emotional dreamer. If Gemini were to find someone who is more of an intellectual match, they would start something with them. But if Gemini were to be tempted to cheat by one zodiac sign in particular, they would most likely cheat with their “cosmic counterpart,” Sagittarius. According to Monahan, “There is a temptation from the archer that is hard for Gemini to resist.”

2. Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Capricorn, you’re the zodiac sign that’s most likely to cheat on people. You have some incredible qualities—your drive, charisma and career-oriented nature are unparalleled in the zodiac. However, you’re not the best at committed romantic relationships.

You’re the type of person who gets wronged in a relationship one time and vows never, ever to commit again. Identifying and healing past hurt is essential. Treat others like you’d want to be treated in a relationship: with tenderness, love and commitment.

The last earth sign, Capricorns approach everything — including their interpersonal relationships — with facts and logic. They treat their romantic relationships like a business, considering the different ways each party benefits from the merger. If mutual needs are satisfied, a Capricorn lover will feel content. When a partnership is no longer productive, however, it's easy for these sea goats to justify straying. Capricorns may treat two-timing as market research, exploring their options to figure out which type of bond is the most advantageous. If caught, a duplicitous Capricorn will likely already be prepared with dozens of "rational" explanations. At the end of the day, everything is a negotiation for these astrological entrepreneurs: Even the most emotional circumstances can be mitigated by a good deal in their eyes.

3. Aries (Mar 21- Apr 19)

The Arians are ruled by the planet Mars and are generally known for their action, aggression and sexuality. They are bold and courageous, and they always tend to look for adventure and fun in everything they do, which always results in spontaneous decisions. They always look for something new and that’s the reason they get bored of long-term relationships very easily.

This sign is known for its fiery passion, aggressive impulsivity, and competitive nature. Aries governs the head, and while this technically applies to the head that's attached to the neck, it may encompass a broader definition in practice. As the zodiac's first sign, willful Aries loves anything shiny and new, so when it comes to cheating, rams are easily seduced by novelty. For these lovers, it is unlikely that any extra-relational rendezvous would be pre-planned: They're inspired by the thrill of the moment, making them susceptible to the siren call of spontaneous one-night stands. Everything is a conquest for an Aries, so when they cheat, they're usually not seeking emotional intimacy — their desire is purely carnal.

If your partner is an Aries, you have to be strong, ready for action and full of surprises. They hate being stuck in the same pattern for extended periods of time. So if you want to keep your Aries lover close, make some changes from time to time. They will cheat only if you can’t keep up with them, or feel that you swim way below their level.

4. Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius, it’s in your nature to be aloof and just plain weird. And there’s nothing wrong with that, so long as you have constructive outlets for your personality. However, sometimes you can be so emotionally distant that you just don’t care about what happens to other people.

You and Capricorn carry this weight similarly; however, you’re even more emotionally distant than Caps since you’re an air sign. Check in with reality on a regular basis to ensure you’re honoring your relationships. And practice close listening!

They are more of a flirt over calls and texts rather in person. They can send flirtatious messages to an ex they have started talking to, or even indulge in an exchange of nude pictures. They do not tend to physically cheat, but however, this is emotional infidelity that can destroy one’s faith in love and relationships.

5. Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

The most ethereal sign of the zodiac, Pisces are deeply empathetic, sensitive creatures. This water sign is governed by Neptune, the otherworldly planet associated with dreams and creativity. There is a dark side to Neptunian energy, as well: On a bad day, the Pisces spirit is connected to delusions, escapism, and secrecy. Pisces can become seduced by their own fantasies, convincing themselves that a duplicitous relationship is actually the byproduct of a majestic, karmic connection. This reality only exists in their imagination, and Pisces can get so swept up by an affair that they end up lost in an emotional sea of their own making.

Pisceans are usually sensitive and emotional but they aren’t afraid to take big steps such as cheating when their demands aren’t being met. When they get angry or have mood swings, they don’t really care about what others would feel. Instead, they will focus on what will make them feel better or excited. In this case, they will cheat, hoping to be caught, so that the relationship doesn’t go further.

Trust is the most essential component to the success of any relationship, particularly ones that are sexual and/or romantic in nature. When that trust is broken in any capacity, shit can hit the fan real quick—and hearts can get broken. While we should all want to give our partners the benefit of the doubt regardless of astrological sign, I can nearly guarantee that these five zodiac signs are the most likely to cheat.

This isn’t to say that everyone with these signs cheats. Don’t get paranoid! These three signs just tend—when disempowered or walking down the wrong path—to display untrustworthy behavior in general. It has to be noted that every zodiac sign has traits that make them unique.
