The Zodiac Sign Most Likely to Spy on Their Partners, According to Astrologers

For these signs, snooping goes beyond casual nosiness and into detective mode.

It's unlikely that your partner will follow you around with a pair of binoculars or hire a private detective, but that doesn't mean they're not still likely to spy on you. And these days, with iPhones and email and the power of Google, it's all too easy to snoop. If you're wondering if your significant other has an untrusting streak, you may want to heed this advice from astrologers, as they share the zodiac signs most likely to spy on their partners. Read on to learn which signs made the list, from the somewhat suspicious to the truly paranoid.

This sign loves nothing more than being the center of attention. "Ruled by the Sun, Leos' planetary influence can make them confident, expressive, and theatrical," explains Rachel Clare, an astrologer at Mysticsense. "However, this confidence can sometimes be a mask for their deep-seated insecurities."

Because they thrive on validation and admiration, Leos can easily go to a suspicious place if they're not getting these reassurances. In such cases, psychic reader and astrologer Emily Newman says it's not uncommon for them to check their partner's phone, computer, and wallet.

Virgo isn't inherently untrustworthy. As Newman notes, "If Virgo chooses you, you are perfect and honest with them."

But it's this sign's perfectionist nature that can flip their perception. "Virgo is all about schedules and routines," notes author and astrologer Lisa Barretta. "If their partner is five minutes late or doesn't text right back, Virgo will immediately … try to put a tracker on your phone and bombard you with questions that demand every little detail."

"Geminis are known for being curious, social butterflies who love to communicate and learn new things," shares Clare. Their talkative (and at times, gossipy), inquisitive nature makes them prone to asking a lot of questions and snooping, which, in certain situations "can lead to suspicion or paranoia that their partner is not being faithful," she adds.

The other reason this sign may spy on their partners is that they are the sign of the Twins and have two sides to their personality. "They can feel content and secure in a relationship until the tides change and they are suddenly consumed by anxiety," says Clare.

"As an earth sign, Tauruses are grounded and dependable partners who value stability and security," says Clare. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, this sign is incredibly committed to their romantic relationships.

"However, this loyalty and devotion can sometimes lead to possessiveness and jealousy," Clare cautions.

If Taurus suspects something is off, they will patiently gather all the facts, even if that means resorting to spying. "They especially keep an eye on how their partners are spending their money and are not beyond scrolling through their partner's cash apps," notes Barretta.

It's no secret that Cancer is the most emotional and sensitive zodiac sign. These can be wonderful attributes in a relationship, but they can also lead to major trust issues.

"They make love the center of their lives, and even the smallest change in their partner's behavior might cause them to become spying eyes," warns Newman.

Clare explains that Cancers are ruled by the Moon, which governs our moods and instincts. "This influence can make them very intuitive, but it can also lead to overthinking and anxiety in relationships," she says.

If these doubts creep into their minds, they will look for any proof they can find that their partner is out to get them.

"Scorpio is the zodiac's natural detective," says Barretta. This complex sign is known for their secretive and mysterious ways, which makes them innately untrusting of others.

"They spy on their partner even when nothing suspicious is going on," Barretta adds.

But their skepticism is actually rooted in vulnerability. "As a water sign, Scorpios are highly emotional and have a deep need for connection and intimacy in their relationships," says Clare. "Scorpios feel deeply attached to their partners and highly protective of their relationships, which can sometimes lead to feelings of jealousy and constantly checking up on their partners."

Don't be surprised if you find them looking over your shoulder when you're on the phone.
