Of all the questions i am asked – and i get some doozies – the one I’m never asked is that classic hoary old query of fortune tellers: Is he/she cheating on me? If you look at the ads for psychic hotlines in the back of the ladies-mags, two thirds of them are offering to answer questions along those lines.
Strangely enough, “are they cheating?” is actually a way easier question to answer via astrology than “are we compatible?” or “will we end up together?”
Why? Because cheating has an astrological signature. It’s Neptune for sure. An adverse or strong Neptune transit to the Ascendent, Moon or Venus leaves a slimy green trail of violet-scented ooze, it’s like a wet patch lol. Okay, i am being silly but if you look at the chart of the suspected cheater, there will be Neptune casting that weird glow of other-worldly allure/denial/escapism.
If that person does not have a good relationship with Neptune in his/her own life, Neptune sidles in the door, usually in the helpful guise of someone hot, vibing soulmatie and spouting poetry. Cue the orchestra.
Yes, you could argue that Pluto or Uranus transits can also produce love triangles but Pluto is not so much infidelity as straight up “I’m leaving you for X” or “I’m moving inter-planet and you’re not coming with me.” If Uranus or Pluto are playing up in your life, you don’t want any constrictions, not even the hassle of having to bullshit to your partner.
Whereas lower or negative Neptune kind of thrives on it…So if you’re in the rather irritating position of suspecting someone is playing away, don’t bother with the credit card deets/new undies sort of scrutiny, check Neptune. And then look to your own chart because if your suspicions are founded, YOU are bound to be under the influence of Saturn.
