Someone asked me this question on the Comment section of my website. If you have a question, I try to answer all of them there. If it is too complicated, I can’t. However, if I can do it, I try. Well, I was thinking about this question and I will take a stab at it. My answer to her was that one cannot really tell from the natal chart BUT BUT BUT, there could be indicators: some men are more prone to “sleep around” than others. I have to add a caveat. To the man who follows a moral code of monogamy, he would not “sleep around” even if he had the chart of a male( well you know). So, yes, we can see indicators, but no, we cannot say, for sure. OK–onto indicators.
Venus in Sagittarius
My first thought when she asked me this question was “Venus in Sagittarius”. Venus in Sagittarius is the bachelor of the Zodiac. However, he is rarely a lonely bachelor. If I had to peg one Venus sign to be unfaithful, it would be this one.
Bacchus Conjunct the North Node
Bacchus is “wild living” as in orgies of all kinds—sex, food, you name it. If it can be done to excess, Bacchus will want to do it. Hence, this native could be prone to get tired of one woman in a monogamous relationship. Remember, that which conjuncts the North Node becomes a life theme. If the native does not “satisfy” the life theme, he will struggle with it.
Neptune Conjunct the Sun
Neptune conjunct the Sun could be said to be an “addicts” placement. I am not saying every Neptune conjunct the Sun is an addict. However, Neptune conjunct the Sun blurs the identity of the native. and makes it very hard for the native to face the harshness of life. The manner in which he may escape we do not know? If I could make a simple picture for you of this aspect, I would say he could be an amazing artist who let his wife support him. Yes, he is very talented. Yes, he is very creative, but no, he is not your vision of stability in a husband.
A Full 5th House Without Planets like Saturn and Chiron
The 5th House is the house of the player. It is the house of romance, which is all well and good. However, it seems like these top heavy 5th House dudes do not want to progress from romance to a serious monogamous relationship. If Saturn or Chiron is here, the man may not do well in the romance department. Hence, he may eschew romance in favor of commitment.
Mars in Scorpio
Let me preface this by saying that Mars in Scorpio can be very loyal. However, if, for some reason, he decides not to be loyal, he could be a player. This is due to the fact that he easily attracts women and is highly sexual. So, I would say that a Mars in Scorpio who is unhappy in his marriage could cheat. Just for a contrast, a Mars in Capricorn, if unhappy in his relationship, may, more likely, become a workaholic.
I have seen this asteroid reflect cheating in a chart that had it in a prominent position. The position I remember was the North Node. The man did admit to being promiscuous, if I remember correctly.The North Node reveals themes of our life. So, that which conjuncts the North Node will feature prominently in the life of the native.
Venus in Gemini
This is my Venus and I don’t feel like I am, likely to cheat, but I have a very loyal Moon, Cancer. However, a Venus in Gemini without strong aspects for loyalty is said to be classic for a cheater. I have never really known a Venus in Gemini man. In other words, if I knew one, I did not see his chart to know. So, I am speaking from Astrology folklore.
Stellium in Sagittarius
I associate Sagittarius with cheating. If he has a stellium of planets that does not include Chiron or Saturn, I would put him in a high cheating category. Again, he may be loyal due to his morality, but Sagittarius is a “What eva ” sign. If it crosses his path, he seems to run after it. Chiron or Saturn would greatly minimize this to the point that cheating would be unlikely.
Mars Conjunct Venus
I am not saying this aspect in a man will make him cheat. However, all his life women have thrown himself at him. Hence, he could be tempted to cheat because the opportunity is always very available, which is not true for many less charismatic men.
I am not trying to impugn anyone. I hope you understand this. However, I was asked an interesting question and took a stab at it!
