A matchmaking astrologer has revealed why some star signs are more likely to cheat on their partners and ghost love interests – and how the stars influence the romantic choices we make.
Lucy Porter, 27, is a London-based astrologer who uses divination to play Cupid for singles looking for love.
The stargazer says predicting the outcome of relationships can be as easy as turning to the stars for answers, with certain star signs more likely to ghost potential partners, call it quits or even cheat.

Lucy, who was brought up with parents who were fond of astrology and tarot card reading, has been working professionally as an astrologer for five years.
Since dabbling in astrological love affairs, she has learned exactly what can make certain star signs a good match and what to avoid when looking for love.
She claims people who have the Taurus sign want to take it slow when dating, while Aries will move quicker and Aquarius can be very fickle.
Most importantly, perhaps, is to be wary of air signs – who are likely to be love rats.
‘We look to astrology as a compatibility monitor’ says Lucy, ‘it’s like a soul map – it shows us what we need, as opposed to what we are used to’

Lucy can tell you how likely your partner is to cheat based on their star sign and more importantly—which star signs you’re personally suited to
‘Different star signs have different ways of approaching love,’ Lucy told Jam Press.’
What do the stars say about your love life?
Most likely to cheat: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
Most likes to ghost: Pisces
Takes it slow when dating: Taurus –
Jumps into relationships head first: Aries
Fickle in relationships: Aquarius
Most passionate: Leo
Values romance: Cancer
Most open-minded: Pisces
‘For example, Aries are head on, Taurus are slow and steady, Aquarius are in and out.’
‘A person’s moon sign shows what they value in love, sex and connection.’
‘A person with a fire moon like Leo will value relationships which are passionate, expressive and fun – and this will influence their choice in partners, as they will look for lovers who inhabit those traits.’
‘A person with a water sign moon like Cancer will value dramatically different things in romance, like safety, peace, authenticity and nourishment.’
‘Some signs are incredibly compatible, whereas others won’t bring out the best in each other.’
‘We look to astrology as a compatibility monitor because it’s like a soul map – it shows us what we need, as opposed to what we are used to.’
A select few of the zodiac signs pose a danger to potential love matches, with air signs including Geminis, Libras and Aquarius’ most likely to be love rats, according to the astrologer.
Lucy explained: ‘Generally air signs can be less committed in love as they value space and freedom.’
‘Pisces are also the sign which ghosts most frequently.’
Astrology is less of a belief system and more of a language used to interpret the stars, says Lucy. Pictured: Lucy Porter with her partner Daren
Luckily for Lucy, her Piscean partner Daren, 52, hasn’t given in to any ghosting-tendencies.
In fact, the couple still going strong after three-and-a-half years, but it’s no coincidence, as Lucy was quick to study his birth chart to see how compatible they were.
She said: ‘The first thing I did was ask his sun, moon and rising signs – our coffee hadn’t even been brought to the table yet.’

‘I’ve always gone for partners who are water signs. As an Aries, I am head on, fiery and jump right in.’
‘Water signs have slowed things down and taught me how to enjoy the moment.’
‘In relationship astrology, you can see a lot about what you need in a relationship through your Venus and Mars signs.’
‘Daren’s Venus is in Aries and my Mars is in Pisces – so we are like mirror of each other and instantly had a deep connection, regardless of the age gap.’
‘Daren thinks my work is great – Pisces are very open-minded.’
For Lucy, the proof that her astrology matchmaking service works is when two strangers she has matched hit it off
Lucy created Hitched on Astral after noticing a pattern with her clients wondering when they would find love and what star signs their partners should have
After noticing a pattern with her clients wondering when they would find love and what star signs their partners should have, Lucy started an astrological matchmaking service – Hitched on the Astral.
Now, she studies her client’s birth charts to help find them a match – something she finds ‘so juicy and fulfilling.’
Although there are many sceptics out there, for Lucy, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
She said: ‘Astrology is not a belief system, but a language; used to navigate and understand the human experience.’
The most important thing you can check when exploring a potential love interest’s birth chart is their Moon, Venus and Mars signs
‘For me, I like to see things with my own eyes.’
‘When I match two total strangers solely through Astrology, and they kick it right off, I know that something in the stars is working.’
For any singletons looking to the stars to help them in their quest for love, Lucy has a final piece of advice.
She added: ‘The most important thing you can check when exploring a potential love interest’s birth chart is their Moon, Venus and Mars signs.’
‘Don’t just look at the Sun sign – the Sun is the personality, whereas the Moon, Venus and Maras are the emotions, sex and desires.’
