Why He Accuses You Of Cheating, By Zodiac Sign

Dealing with the possibility of cheating in your relationship is not at all fun – and it can put a huge strain on you and your partner, even if it turns out to be untrue.

Of course, being caught cheating by your partner is one thing, but being accused of cheating (especially when you’re not) is something completely different. Let me start by saying that relationships aren’t always going to be happy and positive.

You will deal with things in your personal life, your partner will deal with things in his life, and there’s a good possibility that these things will overlap or come to a head and put some pressure on your relationship.

Think about a time when your partner snapped at you, only to apologize later because he was stressed out about something at work or was dealing with a family issue.

Obviously, he was wrong to take his bad mood out on you, but for a while there, you probably weren’t acting like best friends – not until things were cleared up. And when someone knows you really well, they can tell when you’re not acting like yourself.

And when you’re having an especially bad day, you might start pulling away from your relationship subconsciously. Of course, just because he knows how you act when you’re mad, stressed, or sad, it doesn’t mean he’s not still worried something else is going on.

Sure, he might know how your zodiac sign acts (or is supposed to act), but we all think the worst is going on when our relationships don’t feel 100 percent perfect – even if it’s only for a second. And one of those “worst case scenario” thoughts can be asking ourselves if our partners are cheating.

Usually, when someone is cheating on their partner, they will start to pull away from the relationship, hide things from their partner, and make excuses for spending less time together.

Of course, these things can also mean something else is going on, but when you’re unsure of how to ask your partner what’s wrong, it can make you worry even more.

Maybe he’s already confronted you about your weird behavior. Maybe he’s starting to pull away from you, which is only making whatever you’re going through worse.

This is why communication is key, and I don’t mean accusing each other of things until you make up.

No one wants to be accused of cheating, after all. And you shouldn’t stop yourself from feeling stressed out or upset because that isn’t healthy, either.

But if it feels like your relationship is on the rocks right now, it could be because a man thinks something is going on.

And if you’re confused as to why he thinks you’re cheating, it could be because he notices a shift in your personality or behavior (which you might not noticed in yourself).

Before you start arguing or call it quits after an accusation like that, figure out where he’s coming from.

Let's use astrology to see why he thinks you’re cheating, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

As an Aries, you're the kind of person who is always speaking their mind, and your man is used to it by now. He knows that when you're upset or angry, you'll tell him what's going on instead of holding things in.

If he thinks you're cheating, it could be because you haven't been as vocal about how you're feeling recently. As someone who is so passionate and argumentative (at times), this sudden change is weird for him.

Maybe you just have a lot on your mind, or you've got something else going on, but he's worried that it's something he should be worried about.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Once you get comfortable in a relationship, Taurus, you tend to get lazy (in a good way). You don't feel the need to be "on" all the time because you know that your partner will love you no matter what. That said, there still is a difference between being comfortable and not trying at all.

Even when you're comfortable in your routine, you still have bursts of energy where you want to get dressed up and go out on the town with your man. Recently, though, he's noticed that you've been off almost constantly.

He's worried that your energy is being used for someone else, but he's not sure how to bring it up. If there's something stopping you from being your usual self, let him know so you're on the same page.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The chattiest zodiac sign! You love to talk Gemini, and your man looooves to listen to you. One of his favorite things is that he can always count on you to dish about your day, let him know what's going on in your life, and be honest about your relationship when something's up.

If he thinks you're cheating, it's probably because there's been a drought with your constant communication. Maybe you haven't been sharing as much about your day as you usually do. 

Maybe you haven't been sharing anything, but he's worried that it's because you're trying to hide something from him, like a secret relationship.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

As a Cancer, it's imperative for you to be in a very loving and affectionate relationship. It's in your nature to put as much effort into making your partner feel happy and loved as possible, and you hope that your man is able to do the same.

If he thinks you're cheating on him, it could just be a case of miscommunication. While you might be known as the caretaker of the zodiac, you have a hard time being the only one in your relationship making an effort.

If your man isn't making you feel appreciated, you're likely to pull away from the relationship. And because you're not one to openly talk about what's bothering you, he might assume it's something bigger.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You want everyone to see just how happy and in love you are when you're in a relationship, Leo. That's why you always keep your friends and fans updated on Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter about what you and your man is up to. So much so that he's used to you live-tweeting by now.

But recently, he's noticed that you're not as interested in sharing the fun things you do together on social media, and it feels like you're not as in love as you used to be, either. He thinks you're cheating because you're not showing off like you normally do.

Rather, you're hiding yourself away and becoming more introverted, which is VERY unlike you and might be because your relationship isn't doing so great.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

We all know that you have your quirks, Virgo, but lately it seems like you've been acting a little more neurotic than usual. You're the kind of person who doesn't let anything get past you, but recently, you've been acting pretty guarded.

If your man thinks you're cheating, it could be because you've been acting like he's not allowed to know parts of your life anymore. You've always been a little more guarded than the other zodiac signs with your emotions.

But lately, you've been keeping him out of the loop on your plans for the weekend, how you're feeling, and who you're hanging out with. It makes him feel like you're hiding something big from him.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Normally a very loving and affectionate zodiac sign, Libra, it seems like you've been pulling away from your man recently. It's normal to deal with lulls in your relationship where you aren't as showy with your affection, but you've really been icing him out.

Because he's not seeing the same amount of affection that he usually sees from you, your man is starting to get worried. Are you being affectionate with someone else? Are you cheating emotionally and pulling away because you feel bad?

Physically or emotionally, your lack of lovey-dovey affection makes him think that you are cheating on him and just trying to shrug it off as something else.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

It's not uncommon for you to hide how you really feel, Scorpio; your man knows this. He also understands that he needs to work hard for you to trust that he just wants the best for you.

That said, your mysterious, private attitude about everything eventually stops being so understandable. If your man thinks that you're cheating on him, it's probably because you keep withdrawing from him, emotionally and physically.

It might be hard for you to open up, and you might not know how to let yourself be vulnerable, but he can't always be the only one trying in this relationship.

When you withdraw, it makes him feel like he's no longer a part of this relationship because you've found someone else to open up to.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

As a Sagittarius, it's always been a little hard for you to want to settle down with one person. Of course, if you feel like you've found that perfect person, you're much more willing to stick around for the long haul (if it feels worth it).

Lately, though, your man is questioning how you really feel about him, and if you're starting to get bored with him. The reason for this could be because you seem to be pulling away from him and your relationship or because you keep making excuses to not hang out with him as much.

Whether that's saying you have to stay late at work, have plans with friends, or are just too tired to go out, to him, it sounds like infidelity.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

A relationship is an investment to you, Capricorn, which means that you're not the kind of zodiac sign to give up on your man when you hit a rough patch. That said, you're also not one to stick around when things don't feel right anymore between you two.

Your man knows that you can handle these rough patches, so while he won't outright accuse you of cheating, he'll definitely ask you if things are going okay. Why would he even think this?

Maybe because you've started going solo on your goals and future plans. If things aren't going great, you might be planning for your future (alone), not one with him. If that's true, it's better to be honest with him than keep him in the dark.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you're another zodiac sign that prefers to keep things casual and open-ended with people, rather than get into someone serious and long-term with someone.

When you really care about someone, though, you'll make an effort to be more emotionally available. But no matter how affectionate and accessible you are, you're still Aquarius, which means that you tend to think more than you feel.

If your man thinks that you're cheating, it could be because you tend to lean towards emotionally detachment because that's how you've always been.

While he might think something is wrong, you might not even realize that there's trouble in your relationship unless he comes out and confronts you.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you are one of the most emotional zodiac signs, and you certainly feel each and every one of your emotions very deeply. One of the main things you need in your relationship is a man who understands how profound and feeling you are and accepts it without hesitation.

One of the worst things is being with a man who doesn't get you, especially when you have a hard time explaining what you're feeling or what you need. That said, YOU need to let go of those preconceived notions that you have to be a pro at relationships for yours to last.

If he thinks you're cheating (and you're not), speak up instead of letting your relationship fail because you think you're going to say the wrong thing.
