Good relationships are built on trust, and we all want to be able to trust our chosen partner. But hard experience has taught most of us that, as well-intentioned as most people are, not everyone is capable of maintaining a loyal and faithful relationship.
A person’s zodiac sign can give you an indication of how trustworthy a partner they are likely to be. While every individual is different, some signs are more inclined towards loyalty than others.
The signs that make the most loyal partners are Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, and Leo. These signs see their partner as an extension of themselves, so the idea of betraying them or treating them badly just doesn’t occur to them.
The least loyal signs are Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Aries. This is because they are also the most independent signs, so they will always put their interests and desires first, even if it means hurting someone that is close to them.
Let’s take a look at how loyal each of the zodiac signs tends to be in relationships, ranked from most to least trustworthy.
Most Trustworthy and Loyal Zodiac Signs
When Cancer makes a commitment to another person, it is a commitment for life. They adopt you into their family and they will stick by you and be on your side through thick and thin.
They have a lot of close friends, so they might occasionally want to talk about challenges in your relationship with their nearest and dearest. But you are their loved one to criticize, they would never accept anyone else speaking badly of you.
This doesn’t mean that they won’t break up with someone if the relationship isn’t right. But just because you aren’t together anymore doesn’t mean that you are out of the inner circle. They will continue to have your back no matter how much pain or time passes.
Scorpio would never betray their partner, whether that means cheating on them or just saying something not very nice behind their back. People born under this sign understand how important it is to be loyal.
But that doesn’t mean that relationships with Scorpio’s are smooth sailing. They tend to be suspicious, and constantly be on the lookout for signs that their partner is not returning the same level of loyalty.
While you know that they will always protect your secrets and have your back, expect to be accused on a regular basis of not living up to their high expectations of love and loyalty.
Pisces is happiest when they are in a relationship, and are rarely looking outside of that relationship for fulfillment. They also hate conflict, so they will bend over backward to keep their partner happy and make things work.
The partners of Pisces can sometimes feel insecure, as everyone born under this sign has a lot of friends of all genders and persuasion. But just because they have a lot of love to give doesn’t mean that they can’t be trusted.
But you do need to be careful if a Pisces places their heart in your care. They won’t tell you what they need, but they can become sad if their needs aren’t met. So, you need to pay close attention to see if they are happy or struggling.
When Leo decides to make your interests their own, they will fight for you just as fiercely as they fight for themselves. And once they make a commitment, it usually takes something pretty significant for them to decide to break it.
But this does mean that Leo doesn’t always know what the people closest to them need or want, because they just assume that it is whatever they need or want. They won’t understand if you are upset when they come to your defense at the wrong moment.
So, while they will stand by your side and fiercely oppose anyone who might want to do you wrong, if their partner breaks out of their vision of the relationship, they can be confused about what is required of them.
People born under Taurus are renowned for being stubborn, and this attitude of never letting anything go also extends to their relationships. They are loyal on principle.
They are particular with what they want from life, so they don’t enter into relationships lightly. And once they are in, they will stick things out until the bitter end, no matter how hard things get.
They will always defend their partner to the outside world, but they also have very high standards within the relationship. They can have a tendency to be critical and demanding of their partners, which can put stress on the relationship.
Virgo is trustworthy and will never lie or deceive. They will also stand up for their partner if someone else is criticizing them. But it can be a bit half-hearted if they think that the criticism is right, but they will do their duty.
Nevertheless, it can be difficult to trust a Virgo because they will never share with you everything that is going on in their head. So, they could be incredibly unhappy in a relationship, and you won’t know anything about it until they suddenly decide to break up with you.
While they have integrity and believe in doing what is moral and right, they also know that they need to put their own needs first. If that means walking away, they will do it like ripping off a band-aid and never look back.
They also won’t need to wait long before turning their attention to someone new. In their minds, what’s done is done.
Libra loves to love, and they love being in a relationship and having someone to share every aspect of their life with, big, and small.
But people born under Libra do tend to have the shortcoming that they like to be the center of attention and that they are susceptible to flattery. This, combined with their passion for meeting new people, means that it is not difficult for their heads to be turned.
Also, don’t expect Libra to keep your deepest secrets. They are consummate gossips, and they might not be able to resist sharing the juice at the right moment. They will feel terrible afterward, but it won’t change the fact that the cat is out of the bag.
Gemini make amazing and loyal friends, because they genuinely care about the people in their lives and will never turn their backs on them or betray them.
But Gemini doesn’t make as good a partner as they do a friend. This is just because they have constantly shifting interests. While this keeps friendships spicy, it can mean that relationships are short-lived as Gemini becomes excited about a new prospect that enters their life.
Gemini likes to stay friends with their exes, but this is not always easy. They can sometimes forget to tell their ex that it is over before moving on with their next. This is never done maliciously, they have just already moved on in their minds.
Capricorns are uncompromising. They hate making changes to their life in order to make space for other people. Capricorn also hates making compromises to what they want to accommodate others. They can get to a point where they will just do what they want without considering the feelings of others.
Someone born under Capricorn will go off and do their own thing without feeling the need to keep their partner in the loop, even when they know in their hearts that they should. And they will have no problem complaining to all and sundry about their partner being too demanding.
Also, while Capricorn has a strong moral core, if there is something that they really want, they will go after it no matter what. While they won’t throw their relationship under the bus for just anything, if the temptation is strong enough, they will do it.
The thing about Aries is that they always put their own interests first. And if those interests don’t align with that of their partner, they won’t hesitate to do what is right for them, without necessarily thinking about the consequences for their partner.
If an Aries is interested in you, they will pursue you relentlessly and it can be very flattering. They also tend to show possessive behavior, which can make you feel that they are very interested in you. But this is often more about them getting what they want.
Aries always follows their heart, which is what allows them to justify their actions. When their heart is following you, things are great. But if things change, they won’t hesitate to change things.
Aquarius are fiercely independent, and while they are in a relationship, they don’t necessarily see themselves as beholden to their partner. They are an individual, and will act as a free agent if their circumstances call for it.
While they are unlikely to be deceitful, because they generally see this as beneath them, they will do downright hurtful things and expect their partner to just accept it. Things need to be their way, and there isn’t a lot of room for discussion.
Also, they think that they deserve the best, and they are always in the market for an upgrade. If someone covetous comes along and they think that they have a chance, they may well try and take it.
Sagittarius are commitment-phobes, so you will be lucky if you can convince one of them to call you their partner and not just a friend, or a special friend.
When they do meet someone that they like and things get serious, they can have a tendency to self-sabotage, largely out of fear of losing their freedom. This can mean that they will cheat or do other terrible things to end the relationship, so that they don’t have to.
Sagittarius also like to experience all that the world has to offer. They can’t say no to a tempting experience. Besides, if it happens on another continent, or even in another postcode, that doesn’t really count, right?
Are you a Loyal Partner?
Just because certain signs are less inclined to be loyal than others doesn’t mean that anyone born under the signs near the end of this list can’t be trusted.
While our zodiac sign tells us our innate personality traits with which we are born, we are all the product of our life experiences.
We are also all capable of learning to be better, and making big changes when the right person comes along.
