The Zodiac Signs That Are Most Likely To Betray You

The partner who tells you they'll be yours forever and cheats on you two weeks later. The "best friend" who you'll do anything for, only for that "bestie" to make fun of you behind your back. The trusted co-worker who you share an excellent idea with who then pitches that idea to your boss before you get the chance. The cousin who borrows money from you and ghosts you the second you nicely ask about when they plan on paying you back. If you've been in any situation similar to these scenarios, someone betrayed you — at least once.

Once someone betrays you, it can be challenging to trust again, but not everyone is a backstabber. One way to get an idea of how trustworthy someone might be is to learn their zodiac sign. For instance, Cancers are famously loyal. "Cancers take care of others and are fiercely loyal to family," Valerie Evans, a forensic astrologer, tells Best Life. On the other hand, some signs have growing up to do and are likely to be narcissists, making them more prone to betray you. Of course, someone's zodiac sign isn't the only factor that determines whether they'll betray you, but a few signs are more likely to stab you in the back than others.

Competitive Aries

Famously adventurous Aries love excitement, sometimes to the point where they'll knock others down for entertainment. "Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war, and may sometimes start trouble just to start trouble. Aries can fight for pleasure... if they feel threatened you may need to be aware of any backlash and watch for surprise attacks," Stina Garbis, a professional astrologer and psychic, tells Bustle. Therefore, if there's an Aries in your life who you don't get along with, you should try your best to avoid any situations where they could get an opportunity to hurt you because chances are that they'll take advantage of that opportunity to amuse themselves.

According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Aries are typically brave, passionate, athletic people who can act aggressively and impulsively, thanks to their intense tempers. Thus, if you feel like an Aries in your life might try to emotionally — or physically — hurt you, trust your instinct because their anger might make them do something at the moment that they'll regret after the damage is done. For instance, if you and an Aries are competing for a spot on a sports team and they're starting to play too rough and intentionally intimidating you during tryouts, you should talk to the coach.

Manipulative Scorpios

Mysterious, secretive Scorpios have such a dangerous reputation for good reason. Of course, we're not saying all Scorpios are bad, and all the signs have some pros and cons. However, it's the best idea for you to watch your back when you're around a Scorpio you don't fully trust because when a Scorpio betrays you, the results are painful. "They're dangerous because they're not chatty, so you never really know what they're thinking," astrologer Marion Williamson tells Best Life, declaring that Scorpios "are the most manipulative zodiac sign."

According to Co—Star Astrology, Scorpios would make excellent con artists, can read people dangerously well, often have a merciless mindset, and don't fear much. All of these traits prepare this sign to betray someone in a sneaky, well-thought-out way. When it comes to relationships, most Scorpios like to be very dominant and can get controlling, so be careful not to let them manipulate you into being pushed around or treated like property. Even if they promise that they wouldn't act like that, you shouldn't ignore any signs that your relationship is going in that direction — a clever Scorpio might betray you by trying to manipulate you into a toxic relationship.

Gossipy Geminis

Finally, the Gemini sign's talkative nature makes them prone to sharing information they shouldn't be letting out. "I would be careful about revealing your secrets to a Gemini because they do tend to be chatty and love to gossip. They'll be nice to your face, but if they get a little bit of dirt they may smear your name all over town," Stina Garbis tells Bustle. So, while you probably won't have to worry about a Gemini cheating on you or physically hurting you, you should know that they might talk about you behind your back or spill the beans they initially promised to keep between the two of you.

Furthermore, Geminis can be super unreliable with plans, often forgetting about them or bailing at the last minute (via Therefore, if there's a situation or event where you know you need to count on someone to show up on time and have your back, a Gemini might end up disappointing you. While people belonging to this sign typically don't see forgetting to show up or arriving an hour late to your big night as betrayal, chances are, it will hurt your feelings, so consider counting on people belonging to other signs to follow through in those situations.
