Ten Astrological Varieties Of Infidelity

Which Sun Signs are the most likely to cheat? Who knows. It’s a perennial question but there is no particular sign who is more easily distracted or dislikes monogamy. There are, however, ten astrological styles of infidelity based on the Sun, Moon and planets.

Here they are – can you relate to any?

* Pluto-Infidelity:  The Reset affair. It’s bigger than the both of you, compulsive, and karmic feeling. You don’t give a fuq. You work out. You have a lot of energy to expand – it’s the plutonic life force endorphins. My god, you do brain alchemy. You morph. The complications are, like, irrelevant compared to the volcanic Pluto vibe. It makes you feel ALIVE.  Practically everyone else thinks you’ve finally flipped but they have to admit you look good.

* Moon Infidelity:   “I’ve never felt understood like this before.” You get the validation you need or someone to murmur sympathetic platitudes as you bitch about your partner non-stop. You’ll pay maybe any price at all to keep the emotional feed  mainlining and, actually, maybe the other person is charging you? It’s the most likely infidelity style to be entirely emotional but never physical or a therapy crush.

* Jupiter Infidelity: You’re not hitch-hiking any more, you’re riding –  you’re in the driver’s seat, you’re in control, you can afford an upgrade, right…RIGHT?  It’s not like you ever wanted a small life. Someone else can do the wifework or the tedious Boyfriend Experience duties. Your side-lover and you like panoramic views, broad philosophies and speculative ventures – you see the bigness in one another. Eg: You’d never discuss who paid the phone bill or not – you talk about international telecommunications cartels.

* Mercury Infidelity:  It’s not really infidelity as such because it’s only phone sex. And some texting that could maybe be emotional infidelity. BUT you were in a transit lounge,  not even in a country at all according to international law. If you only hint at a betrayal, as in a cryptic allusion to something that could technically undermine your partner, is that infidelity? Or espionage? Does it not imply that marriage or a relationship is more like a religion and that that to connect with another person is to be a heretic? You’re delighted if your partner questions your faithfulness because you’ve been wanting to share a think piece/meme/leak about the link between bread additives and the need for novelty…

* Neptune Infidelity: My god, nothing happened! Or did it? You were high. It was a cult. They framed you. It was the peyote in the Blue Devil Hoochie Juice. It’s not like anything ever happens in real life but is it infidelity if you think about them for up to ten hours a day? Or during sex? You need an Imaginary Lover to get through the day. It’s not like you’re a zombie or addicted or anything. You do, however, worship them and your enjoyment of the ‘connection’ would satisfy the diagnostic criteria for an addiction. You don’t care because you’re not giving this up, you don’t care if they’re a figment and the technicolor dreams are fabulous.

* Saturn Infidelity: You sleep with your accountant to get a better outcome. It’s part of doing good business. Plus they’re hot. It’s not like you’re not enjoying it. The accountant expenses the lunch beforehand, and you enter the kilojoules burned in your fitness tracker.  All profit – no loss. You calculated it. The “plausible deniability” factor is also high. Or you cheat on your partner with your work or business. Frankly, it’s far more rewarding and at least your bank account is going to drone on about their boring family all night when you’re trying to power-sleep.

* Sun Infidelity: You fall back in love with yourself. You’re all about rediscovering the music you like, dressing how you want and reading in bed when you feel like it. You want to live by your light – not someone else’s rapidly rigidifying pomposity. You cheat on them with high quality solitude or beaming your identity out full-bore without apology. Noticing that your partner seems envious/lost/irritated when you’re self-actualizing is probably the cue to run off with yourself.

* Venus Infidelity: It would be criminal to deny yourself or the other person the pleasure of your beauty, tinkly laugh, and luxuriant company. Besides, you know that lovers always operate best in a sort of free market of love environment. Competition hones instincts. It’s not personal. It’s not vindictive. You have a short attention span, like the honey-bee who goes from flower to flower. Who would dare say that one is more attractive than another? You read a lot of Rumi. Buying new underwear makes you in the mood for a fling.

* Mars Infidelity: You’re on performance drugs and training for an elite marathon called Life.  Seducing your soon-to-be exes business partner/brother/wife/whatever is just part of the play: a power statement. If living well is the best revenge, why can’t it include an orgasm with someone who would rile the person who fuqed you over? It makes you feel more serene than meditation ever did and besides, monogamy made you flaccid.

* Uranus Infidelity: How can it be “cheating” when the whole system is gamed against you, and the most insane, anti-human expectations are enshrined as moral superiority?! You’re not going to form part of a docile consumer voting unit, and you cannot yoke something as complex and primordial as sexuality or even your mind into a clapped out bourgeois gulag.

My exes Mercury infidelity prior to mine was a symptom of how mad our marriage had become..which in turn led me to Pluto infidelity. Life changing event as horrible as it was put me on track I’m supposed to be on, however stood the opportunity arise again, I would never ever take it.

Wish Upon a Star

Hilarious Mystic !

Jessica Nock

Nope can’t restate to cheating in any form.


This is so genius! What’s interesting is considering the affair from the point of view of each party involved. Like, I felt my ex had Mercury cheated on me, he would have thought it was a Uranus affair, and for the women it was all about furthering their careers, totally Saturn.

Wish Upon a Star

So Funny.


Just commented on dating Your planets and then find this. Yes it’s all there with the affairs too. Pluto oh god the pluto infidelity. My astrologer at the time warned me… “you’ll never be the same again”. He was right !


The Saturn thing about that sleeping with an accountant to gain a profit was hilarious (coming from someone with a heavy Saturnian aspects plus a 7th house Saturn). I think I must try it *SARCASTIC WINK*


Guilty of Pluto & Mercury infidelity. The Mercury affair was with a Gemini that lived in a different state, so it was mostly a phone relationship. Although we only had sex twice and it was while I was single, I was more emotionally attached and dependent on him than the people I was dating at the time. He just got me and was in my head all the time.

The Pluto affair was an on and off thing that’s been going on for years and has resulted in what I consider a very Pluto Relationship. We have significant synastry aspects regarding Pluto, and multiple planets including the Sun in the 11th House of our composite chart.


12th House, my bad


haha! love these! all spot on, but am totes feeling the Sun right now (as the Sun-ruled, Sun in the 7th house lady I am!)



Know a Katakan that left his Aqua Gem Moon wife as she was too cold/brittle. He cheated in the most Lunar way, such an emo slut!

Cant be Venus. I don’t do lingerie, I find it so dull tbh, nekkid be the go! NN in Saggi 7th peeking thru?

Mercury.. Ah with SN in Gem I like action men, words are sexy but ultimately untrustworthy.

I relate more to Pluto Neptune..! Hmm. That can’t be good.


But it so is! 😀

catfish moon

Wow. I have done pluto style….yuck. terrible mistake but I couldn’t help it. So glad it ended.


Saturn and Neptune combined…As natal venus in in capricorn in 5th, so there really must be a return on the investment, but the neptune preceded saturn, as it assisted with creating the mystifying allure and perplexing visions or desires?…


guilty of mars-felt fine at the time I was single and the ‘other’ woman.he was the ex i wanted back. thankfully he called it off.
More inclined to uranus infedelity that is strong in me natally. i’m 4 degress Leo in uranus looked it up and found this:

‘ A snake wrapped around the bottom of a tree is ready to attack, while another snake crawls in the grass’

oh dear i’m a gonner


“You take some beta-blockers . . . ”

how did i never figure that out (mars/eros/jupiter sextile pluto)


Have done the Uranian- style a few times. All were wrong in retrospect and negatively impacted on others. I wouldn’t do that any more.


I LOVE this. Mystic, you are one switched on smart and funny cosmic firecracker.


it’s pretty much been sun infidelity since uranus crossed my sun a couple of years ago. Then again, since I have no one to be faithful to other than myself, I call it sun *fidelity* …. ha. see what I did there? 😉


yes! good one Pi 🙂

Kim Falconer

Mystic! Wowza!

I love it . . . and with Pluto on the Asc, I am so incline toward the Plutonic! lol Thank you! xxx


Wowza indeed. This is some amazing creative writing. Beautiful Wordsmithing Mystic!


GUILTY as charged! HAHA

Austin Inanna

Mystic, you da best! I’m doing the Sun right now. Personally recognize all of them.

piscean pied-a-terre

Hilarious and perfect…all of them!


Cut and paste for quick access: natal and transit charts. Always have on hand for Integrity Meter, character markers.

Problem with Neptune Affairs is convincing the Neptunian “It ain’t gonna happen.” File (along with Pluto Affairs) under “Friends convinced you’ve finally lost it” and “Friends considering an intervention.”

Venus a-go-go

I just want to write the Uranus Infidelity everywhere

Nate Grey

You know Mystic, what I love the MOST about this post is that it effectively also describes how we cheat on ourselves when we become a Love-Zombie.


Point to Nate for Depth and Truth.


Plutonic-Uranian – no surprise with Sun in Scorp & a natal Uranus-Venus conjunction in the 5th. Chart ruler Venus – lingerie shopping is a sure sign….


Oh Pegasus! if you find any or all of those luscious items you just mentioned could you please, pretty please, post a link?? thanks 🙂 and btw I am doing the Pluto-style bigtime & loving everything about it! Most awesome relationship of my life!


KittyCat, after looking through most of them was very disappointed. A site has some originals from late 19th century/early 1900’s that cost a fortune and unwearable.
Some vintage Dior, like 3-4 pieces on Etsy. A few tap knickers is ALL!
There is a GAP for this type of lingerie…..some-one should get this going, there would be a huge market.
A company called ‘Lotus’ used to make it in the 80’s but can’t find them, just a telephone number in NSW only.
Another brand from 80’s called ‘Loo Taylor’ also unavailable.


Questions. Can you have some of these when partnered but now aren’t? That’s why one became single. Or can they still be on going way after the transit? You know that’s still the state of play now? I’m looking back over post Neptune in Aqua here. Which started when still partnered. Even the single me & him but it still rings true?


About to search for lingerie from the 20’s & 30’s, you know the silky shorts with petite side covered buttons. OMG covered buttons! And silk camisoles, loose all-in-ones with gathered waist ribbons. This must mean my libido’s stirring. Stay up stocking sans the lace tops in silk jersey. Apricot, pale mint, ivory, or baby bottom pink.
This must be from watching hours of Boardwalk Empire, hey whatever works i say. The Golden Venus must be on the line 🙂

moved on

Cough. I’ve done the Pluto thing and it changed me forever. I’m sure he was my soul mate. And, cough, cough – just might be doing Neptune a bit right now. This is so spot on!


Neptune. Life changing.


neptune infidelity : it proved to be a constant mental picture that showed the way to get to the desired one. The meeting proved to be ecstatic, delirious , romantic,and then physically impossible . The neptune illusion still exists in one half of the ‘affair’.
Fortunately people with a very strong venus don’t know how to say NO.


Yes . Nothing happened. !


i know that one. i have a strong venus in kataka that will not shake anyhting off its claws. hold on tenaciousy and ‘no’ ? don’t know the meaning.


Have to say, this irks my Venus in Capricorn (which is square Pluto). I am very anti-infidelity. But that’s me and to each their own.


(great writing though!)


Such a great way to express the essence of each sign, deeply, engraved in humor . . . the best approach. Creative!. Thank you. I appreciate Porkchop for inserting this sentiment for fidelity . . . going the distance with deep commitment and presence. Authenticity. Growth.

Electric Eel Libran

Don’t worry. You are not alone. I don’t get it either.


Hah! Wow, the one big love affair of my life was totally Plutonic & Jupiter! It even occurred on a pacific island where I did actually find myself in a chopper! Lives were changed in Plutonic fashion and we are still very happily together (and married!) 7 years later.

Double Happiness

Love this! Wish my hot but accidental ( he lied) Plutonian affair ended this good!


I love the planetary infidelity typology! But ‘infidelity’, as a term can be tricky… I recommend reading ‘The Ethical Slut’ – all notions of fidelity, loyalty and commitment turned upside down. The summary? Phuck the bourgeois shackles, transcend cultural conditioning, find your bliss, enjoy your body (and others’ …) and do it with honesty, respect, awareness and love. — Would that be classified as Uranian? Probly… This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius.

The Leo Socialite

Mystic you are like those people in inception! You go into the subconscious and find stuff out! no wonder i could not sleep, you were in my head.

Gemini 1001

THIS is genuis Mystic – and ive done all of them… proudly 😉

fallen angel

OMG, I was just thinking the same thing..like but wot if I did them all? Does that just make you one hardcore infidel beyond astro?


Gemini 1001

hahah or just grokking the astro 🙂 with integrity 😉


I’ve never had an affair … am I a true Gemini? 😯


No you have integrity : )

Gemini 1001

I think Gemini’s have affairs every day .. i mean my twins often feel like they are cheating on each other with each other.. hehehe xx


totally doing Sun right now, this week. 🙂 Feeling a bit Uranus around the edges, though. not just on fidelity but everything.

Electric Eel Libran

How about South Node cheating?

We knew each other in a previous life! lol!

Lux Interior is My Co-Pilot

Isn’t it North Node??

or does South mean something else?


Electric Eel Libran

NN is your destiny and your next evolution. It is more common that people dislike where their NN is. I know I did. I’m at least not working against it anymore even though I don’t like it. But you have to nourish your NN to make SN happy in the long run.

SN is comfier and feels like you’ve known someone your whole life. But there are reasons why these things do not work out….


How NAIVE! I tought I was the only one! I HATE, HATE, HATE my Aquarius North Node. Bring on the 8th house Leo drama, love affairs, involvement, lights on me!


LOL Egalitarian orgies of the future coming to you!


haha 😀


Forgot something important, I also have Uranus rising. Venus-Uranus conjunction (within one degree). The Uranus description also suits me. Goodness, I’m a bit of a mess…


Absolute bloody genius MM !


Brilliant. Truly brilliant! I am in love with this. I am going to have a torrid affair with it, in fact, in Venusian style. Sidenote/question: I related to a number of these because I’m a little kooky, but Venus certainly seemed to hit the mark. I also happen to have Venus rising (in Scorpio). Do you think that would generally be true? That if we have a particular planet rising that would be our conquest style? Curious.

Hathor's Horns

Oh my gods these are BRILLIANT. I’m so guilty of the Mercury type fling haha. Sexting is soooo fun 😉


So was it YOU that started this sexting biz. Off with your horns Hathor!
Cheap Thrills, only the telecoms profit.
Guess you don’t have to worry about who gets the breakfast in the morning and no-one knows if you smoke after.

Nextext : Sorry wrong number !

oopsies !
Whaddun me Whaddun me – I have a cat, not a kid.
ahhhh brings back the days of polaroids 😀


i recently bought a phone off ebay and a very private photo of a very private part and message was left on it. I was gob smacked that girls are sending these photos out via facebook.
Oh for the days of the mags ‘screw’ and playboy ‘I’d find in my brothers rooms.


ah so what….they’re just vaginas, right? and we’ve all got one. Could we frame it differently? Maybe it’s good if the secretive/shameful paradigm is superceded by a new one in which the girls get to do what they like with their vaginas – and representations of them – without inciting horror or moral panic. (not suggesting you in particular of moral panic LG, but you know, speaking more generally)


So brilliant Myst. Kiss kiss x


check. Pluto as described !


Jupterian for sure. FUN i need fun for my nature to be fulfilled.
Yet was told by an Astrologer 30 years ago, that i was Mercurial, well that was then wasn’t it before i learned the inscrutable Poker Face that gives nothing away. Used to call that ‘dead’.


Damn it you’ve done it again MM.
Saturn Infidelity = how I got my driver’s licence.
For shame I can tick most of these off, I feel Astro dirty.


If i could find the Jovial part of me, i would clean you up 🙂
Pop you in a bubbly spa bath (note to self: find fuqing find a spa asap-it’s my cure-ALL).


I drive by a bathroom store and they have a claw foot number out on the road. I am so hard up for a soak, I am willing to buy my own water to toss in that baby.


Water balances the emotions like nothing else specially if there is no water in the birth chart.
If you ever find a Watsu practitioner, try it. If i had a spa or even room for a spa room, that’s what i would take up. It is one of the most endorphin producing experiences ever & ever. Water Cures ar actually quite Germanic, Kniepp therapy par example.
Unfortunatley not many therapists do it.
Perhaps i shall just take my water wings into the gym pool.
Must count my blessings or take some Ginko for memory as there is both a pool & a spa less than 500meters from me. Duh 🙂
The Tao says ‘water reached the highest & lowest of places’. What a leveller it is.


I couldn’t agree more with you Pegs.
One of the best therapy sessions I had was in a spa with an electric current. It felt like an aquatic Tens machine.

pluto-style, and venus.
wow, definitely spot on.

12th house Virgo

Ha ha! Those stood out for me too. All of them sound pretty spot on.


Pluto Venus with aspect to moon and Uranus. Yup that’s me.

Lux Interior is My Co-Pilot

Ha! Genius! Love Saturn one. Should be a movie! With different characters all cheating in different ways…The accountant can be played by Lucy Liu.


That was exactly my thoughts. Move over 50 shades, hello 10 degrees of infidelity! Love it


10 planets of infidelity as a working title

annie aqua

Beautiful! laughed out loud at the accountants being hot line. Actually all were very funny–and so “true”!
