“I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”
― Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun
Infidelity is a majorly hyped concept in the modern-day world. Sure! And why wouldn’t it be? Considering the emergence of celebrity cheating scandals and the alarming rates of divorces, heartbreaks and break-ups due to the discovery of cheating or having been cheated upon, infidelity nonetheless could be termed as one of the epic instances of the 21st century world’s crises.
With that being said, the definition of the word “infidelity” or in technical terms, the bandwidth of cheating is clearly absurd. Whilst some may consider any form of emotional attachment of a non-platonic kind with someone other than their partner as “cheating”, some others beg to differ and label it as some kind of a sexual behavior with anyone besides their partner.
As baffling as the threshold of cheating might seem to be, it is nothing as compared to the emotional reactions exhibited by the individuals at the bitter end of the relationship- the ones that have been cheated upon!
Research suggests that the different behavioral patterns exhibited by different individuals upon being subjected to betrayal by their counterparts is also influenced by their zodiac sign.
Ergo, I have penned this article to bedazzle you with the amazing affect that the sun-sign you belong to casts on your emotional patterns when you discover that you’ve been cheated.
Let’s begin with the details on each zodiac sign.

1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If you messed up with a girl who falls under this sun sign then well, I rest my case with you.
She has a high-level of self-esteem and is incomparable with the other women around her in more ways than one. How dare you cheat on her in the first place? Even thinking that there’s someone out there better than her that you could court with is immoral in itself.
Oh well, the joke’s on you. She’s a gone-case now. But don’t worry, she won’t seek revenge. How do I know? Well, her sun-sign indicates so.
2. Taurus ( April 20 – May 20 )
This is the sign which holds it against you, really!
They’ll act as if whatever damage has been done is in the past now and make you believe that they are ready to look past it. However, their actual sentiment would be just the contrary.
They will keep an eye on every move you make and are more susceptible to getting hurt by even a single act of recklessness that you might pull off. Beware!
3. Gemini ( May 21 – June 20 )
If you have betrayed a Gemini, you’d better begin by bringing the moon down to her feet. Only then shall she be able to forgive you. I don’t mean literally, of course!
You have to get ready to apologise to an insane degree and not come up with any excuses whatsoever.
The people belonging to this sun-sign are adamant about their decision. So, the only way to get past it without keeping the relationship at stake would be to convince her to take you back. She will take you back only and only if she wants to.
4. Cancer ( June 21 – July 22 )
If you’re dating a Cancer, take a moment to thank the higher power or whatever you believe in because she’s an absolute keeper. So, why’s the that? Well, she is one hell of a generous person. So, she won’t be judgmental without hearing you out.
She might take time to figure things out but it’s likely that she will forgive you for your misconduct. Howsoever, don’t repeat the same mistake. She’s one of the “Fool me once. Shame on you! Fool me twice. End of the story.” kind of person.
5. Leo ( July 23 – August 22 )
Leo are characterised by their confidence. So if anything inhibits her ability to shine, she’ll probably let it go or in this case, let you go. How there you not realise how amazing she is?
If she wants, she can dump you the hard way but since she likes keeping her reputation intact amongst her peers, she will probably forgive you for once and not make a big deal out of it. But you mister need to watch out on the move you make next or else you’ll have a rather unfriendly encounter with a fierce lioness. No kidding!
6. Virgo ( Aug 23 – September 22 )
Even though they might be classed as a shy and timid group, Virgo will go to several heights to seek revenge if she feels that her sense of security is being compromised.
The worst part for you is that you might not know that she knows about your misconduct which gives her the perfect opportunity to plan and execute the revenge.
7. Libra ( September 23 – October 22 )
Libra will actually take into consideration the time and effort taken in building the relationship and based on the amazing experiences that you two have had, she’ll be ready to look past things.
For what it’s worth, it would be much more convenient to treasure what you have instead of letting it all go to waste and sink in the mess that it leaves behind.
8. Scorpio ( October 23 – November 21 )
Scorpio admires honesty. If you confess about your unfaithfulness with her, she will lend an ear and even forgive you for once.
On the other hand, if she hears about it from someone else, she’ll serve the revenge in the best possible way. Also, a break-up would be inevitable in that case.
9. Sagittarius ( November 22 – December 21 )
If a Sagittarius finds out that you have cheated on her, she’ll burst into flames then and there. And it’s perfectly reasonable. Afterall, she works hard to maintain stability in her life and seeing the downfall of it right in front of her eyes would make anyone lose their mind.
Screaming, crying- you name it! You’d be in the receiving end of all of it.
10. Capricorn ( Dec 22 – Jan 19 )
If you cheated on a Capricorn, you’d better not turn into a pool of tears and confess about it with her because it’s not going to make it any better.
If there’s something you could do, kit would be admitting to her that you messed things up. And that should be it.
I suggest doing so because considering her intuitive power, she’d know that you cheated on her even before you confess about it with her.
Admitting that you created a mess, might however, save the relationship. Give it a try!
11. Aquarius ( Jan 20 – February 18 )
An Aquarius woman would turn into a puddle of tears when she discovers that she’s been cheated on. She’ll fire you with taunts and might even start calling you names- Judas, Traitor, anything at all.
She will make you reminisce all the wonderful memories of your togetherness and how you shattered her world completely.
Since the show must go on, she will find a way to recover from the heartbreak. And that’s when you’d want to make endeavors to save the relationship and pursue her to be with you.
12. Pisces ( February 19 – March 20 )
Cheating on her would not have immediate after-effects.She would try to figure things out or in fact, stay in an utter state of denial that someone so dear to her ended up betraying her.
She will keep it inside her until she finally explodes like a volcano. You’d not want to be anywhere near her vicinity, I promise you!
There’s no point in attempting to convince her to take you back because that’s not going to happen in this life, at least. No! No! No!
Though it’s a mistake to cheat on people, and a big mistake at that, to cheat on someone, some of us might be willing to look past it.
If you think that things can be sorted out and that the fact that he cheated on you would not be a problem at anytime in the future, then it might be better to save the relationship. You might want to move on with life and work on the differences.
However, if you are of the view that whatever he did is totally unforgivable and out of your moral boundaries, then it would probably be better to let him go and keep your esteem intact.
With that being said, I hope you make the right decision and take some time off to heal your heart. You don’t need to spend your life in despair just because someone unworthy of your love betrayed you. Muster the courage to mend your broken heart and the rest shall follow.
