Let's cut the bullsh*t and get straight to the point: Being the other woman is rarely a good thing. In fact, it’s never a good thing. But sometimes, thanks (or no thanks) to astrology, people just can’t help but be home-wreckers. Hell, even their horoscope may hint at wrongdoing on their part.

Granted, if they really worked on it and developed some self-control, they might be able to avoid being such a thing, but ultimately, some zodiac signs are just more prone to certain roles than others. I know, I know; it's not fair, because you're sooo innocent and would NEVER do that. (Yeah, right.)

So, before you freak the eff out, take a breath. You might not even be on the list of home-wreckers! But if you are, then... well, good luck with all that.

From most likely to least likely, here are the zodiac signs most likely to be mistresses and have “other woman” written all over them.

1. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Sure, being an open-minded, loving idealist is great... until Aquarius is faced with a moral dilemma. Then all bets are off. Where others might look at an attached person and see a glaring neon sign that reads “stay away,” Aquarius, instead, sees a glaring neon sign that reads “all’s fair in love and war.”

2. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Well, it’s already been determined time and time again that when it comes to assh*les, Scorpio always wins with flying colors. So, by that rationale, Scorpio has a very good chance of being the “other woman.” Not only is Scorpio an undeniable b*tch, but a backstabber that loves secrets. Also, her passion for life can easily — since she doesn’t care whom she might hurt — morph into lust for someone who’s off limits.

3. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Although Aries is notoriously known as the most selfish of the zodiac signs, making her ideal for being one of the zodiac signs most likely to be mistresses, her stubbornness and need to do the right thing prevents her from being at the top of this list. But because that selfishness is so severe, it still makes her far more likely than many signs to be a home-wrecker. No matter how right she needs to be, her selfishness usually wins.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

The positive energy and optimism of Sagittarius mean she makes for a great friend, but watch out! With weaknesses like being cocky and reckless, she doesn’t have the necessary personality traits to say “no” to a situation to which she should definitely be saying no.

5. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

The problem with Gemini (although they probably are the most fun of the zodiac signs) is that you’re dealing with two personalities in one, making them some of the most manipulative people around. Manipulation can be a great quality in certain situations... unless that situation is luring someone away from their partner. And because Gemini is always up for an adventure, they’ll justify their being the “other woman” as just another adventure and experience worth having. *eye roll*

6. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

As the bull, Taurus may be mostly known for standing their ground and sticking to their convictions, but they have two other traits that make them ideal "other" women: they’re romantic and possessive. In other words, if they see love, no matter the situation, they’ll make their move and take it, firmly believing they’re not just entitled to it, but that it belongs to them.
