10 Tarot Cards That Can Show You Warning Signs of Cheating

10 Tarot Cards That Can Show You Warning Signs of Cheating
Relationships are built on trusting your partner as much as they’re built on trusting yourself. When you have chemistry that feels purely electric, a love that runs deeper than the ocean, and a history filled with ecstatic ups and saddening downs, it can be easy to ignore your inner guide when something feels off.

Tarot card readers can serve to coax your inner guide out from confusion and illuminate the truths you may have known all along. If you have an indescribable feeling that there’s something different about your relationship with your partner and they may be having an affair, grab your tarot card deck, or visit a psychic who can interpret the meaning and truths behind your intuition. 

Tarot cards began as a card game in the 15th century, and it wasn’t until the 18th century that they were used for divination. Each card in the deck has its own meaning or universal symbols (often referred to as archetypes). Though some believe tarot cards can tell the future, the truth is that they’re more of a way to reflect on your choices and make empowered decisions, and many people turn to tarot cards when seeking answers about their current relationships. The following cards can shed some light on a certain part of your relationship—specifically, the other relationships of those who you thought you were in a relationship with:

The Three of Swords

An ominous card hinting at heartbreak by betrayal, the Three of Swords is a classic cheating card and often signifies a love triangle. Beware of romantic intruders getting between you and your lover. 

The Three of Swords

The Moon

The Moon generally represents the hidden or undisclosed element of our relationships. Maybe your lover is just entertaining thoughts of infidelity. Or maybe it’s already in play. Either way, this card is hinting at something subtle, but secretive, occurring beneath the surface.  

The Moon

The Queen of Swords

Somebody is plotting something. The Queen of Swords signifies events conspiring between people who may wish to do you harm. Open your eyes and guard your heart.

The Queen of Swords

The Knight of Wands

A symbol of lust, potency, adventure. This may not have anything to do with you personally, but rather your partners uncontrollable passions and appetites, which may be driving them into forbidden lands. 

The Knight of Wands

The Seven of Swords

This is the card most associated with deception. Keep your ears open for verbal cues of unfaithfulness—the lie is the message of the seven of swords.  

The Seven of Swords

The Devil

A classic temptation card. Is there somebody close to you in the position of capturing your partner’s eyes? Don’t focus on abstract scenarios with this one; the source of unfaithfulness is real and potentially closer than you think. 

The Devil

The Tower

The inferno depicted in the tower card is sudden and devastating. That’s an apt metaphor. The source of your relationship’s demise could be a sibling or a best friend. Prepare for an earth-shattering revelation. 

The Tower

The Two of Pentacles

The two coins held up indicate a balancing act. While this can also potentially indicate something positive, it could mean that your partner is trying to balance two things: their feelings for somebody else, a second relationship, or even their resources. In any case, the Two of Pentacles usually indicates that their attention isn't fully where it should be.

When seeking answers about your relationship or path toward finding a loving partner, the following cards from the deck can shed some much-needed light on matters of the heart:

The Magician

The Magician represents deception, and signals that someone is wearing the con artist hat. Pulling this card out of the deck can mean your partner is hiding something from you. Take a moment to reflect in this situation: were you ignoring your inner guide and downplaying a potential affair? Have you been able to set boundaries that make it clear you deserve a healthy partnership?

The Magician could indicate that they’ve been presented with the opportunity and are considering the option, or are struggling with doubt about the relationship and will find a way to explore other options soon.

The Fool

This card generally indicates shocking or unpredictable behavior and could mean several different things.

  • It could mean your partner has denied their cheating but lied about it
  • Your partner might be leading you on to believe your relationship is more serious than it actually is
  • Your partner is pretending they are someone they are not (for example, they could be pretending to be single when around other people)

Psychics who specialize in relationships and infidelity can help you discover the reasons behind your unease and give you the strength and guidance to tend to your relationship, however that looks to you. Now's the time to find the one that's right for you and help you get the relationship you deserve.
