Could you be micro-cheating and not even know it? Most of the time when someone cheats on their partner, they’re aware of what they’re doing and they know it’s wrong. The make a choice, and though they may do everything in their power to keep it a secret, they are aware of the serious consequences.

But with micro-cheating, the lines are blurred. Micro-cheating is small actions that may seem innocuous but can be interpreted as cheating. It’s being a little too flirty, using secretiveness that doesn’t seem to be necessary, or becoming seemingly too close with an ex.

They're behaviors that can be destructive to the emotional well-being of a relationship. And in astrology, there are some 

zodiac signs who micro-cheat, and are more likely to do so than others.

It’s a good idea to have a talk with your partner and find out whether the two of you have the same feelings about micro-cheating. You don’t want to do something you think is okay only to find out otherwise. You need to set boundaries and talk about the consequences. Micro-cheating can destroy the foundation of trust in a relationship, especially if it intensifies over time and leads to full-blown cheating. 

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers tend to micro-cheat by not only staying in touch with their exes via social media, but by continually talking about them. It's not cool to feel as if you can never live up to a past love, and that's what Cancer does when they appear to still be into their ex.

This individual needs to stop dragging their ex out of the past into the present, and focus their attention on their current partner.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are a sign who prize honesty and don't easily cheat, but one of the ways they micro-cheat is by having a close relationship with someone they've never introduced to their partner. Scorpio will tend to be rather hush-hush on the subject of this mystery person, but they won't lie.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces don't want to cause anyone any pain, so they don't see that regularly liking or commenting on someone's post as micro-cheating. When someone gets a little too invested in another person's social media, it can be upsetting to their partner.

A ton of engagement can lead to messaging and texting, and then one day they have people listed on their contact list under fake names or emojis. Pisces may think they're just being nice, but it can lead to being emotionally unfaithful and then real-time cheating.
