Are you trustworthy or more likely to lie?
For as long as anyone has lived, lies have existed. We lie to protect others, ourselves, or even just because we feel like it. It’s human nature, but the nature of lying isn’t the same for everyone.
Based on our zodiac signs, we have different ways of lying and handling the aftermath. There are those who feel guilty and avoid it as much possible. Others don’t feel the need to lie, preferring honest above dishonesty. Others, meanwhile, are natural liars. To them, lying is a form of extravagant storytelling.
Ever since we were very small and impressionable, we were taught that we should never lie. Not only that lying was bad, but that it could ruin relationships and friendships, and basically make us seem very untrustworthy to others, too.
While this is still true, no one has never not lied before. It’s just kind of something that happens to the best (and worst) of us. I know you’ll agree with me, but I feel like all I ever see on the news these days is more stories about lying, and it’s exhausting.
Whether it’s one of those big, nasty lies that gets out one way or another or just a little white lie that isn’t meant to do anyone any harm, we ALL have an experience with lying in one sense or another. While I’m not a huge fan of lying and lairs, I can be a liar myself.
I DO try to convince myself that the lies I tell are for a greater cause, but in short, I’m still telling lies. I also know that telling lies really can’t be very good for my health or my skin. But people feel differently about lying, whether they actually care that they’re being untruthful or not.
Some people know that they’re lying and still choose to do it. Other times, people just don’t put that much significance on their “lies.” They think that if they don’t really know what the truth is, they can just kind of pull something out of thin air and it won’t be that big a deal.
For some people, lying really isn’t a big deal, but others taking any form of dishonesty seriously, and it may have something to do their planet placements in astrology. I once had a friend who would like simply because it was easier than telling the truth. For example, if someone asked her if she went grocery shopping that day, she would tell them no (even if she did go), just so that she wouldn’t have to them tell the curious person what she bought.
If caught in one of her “lies” she’d always just say, “Eh, I did go shopping but I was just too lazy to tell you the truth.” While this was a totally bizarre thing to do in general, it also drove me nuts. Being one of her best friends, I always knew when she wasn’t being truthful… so why was it so hard for her to just not lie?
Was it really that much more convenient for her? Clearly, it still frustrates me after all this time. Maybe it had something to do with her horoscope sign, maybe that was just the person she wanted to be. If you ask me, making lying such a second-nature habit like this can only lead to more bad habits.
Here is how likely you are to lie, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries: Lies for his own benefit.
Aries aren’t big into lying. It doesn’t serve a purpose to them. They have no patience for the drama that ensues if they’re caught in a lie. And when they do lie, it’s not a big deal to them.
Aries, you are one of the most brutally honest zodiac signs. Even when it’s out of love for someone, you would much rather choose to be honest and tell them like it is than to leave them wondering if you’re who you say you are.
One thing you know people in your life appreciate about your honesty is that they always know where they stand with you. You won’t tell them one thing and then go and badmouth them behind their back. That’s a quality all zodiac signs should have!
Taurus: Lies to get where he needs to go.
Tauruses are the stubborn ones, and they prefer things going their way. If it means that they have to tell a little white lie to have things done according to what they want, they would do it.
Taurus is pretty honest when it comes to just how much the zodiac signs can lie, but that doesn’t mean you can’t lie just as much as the rest of us. You just do it in a way that is less harmful than other zodiac signs.
When you lie, it’s usually just white lies. Because you’re pretty stubborn, you think that if you lie to get people to see your way that it’s not too harmful. Plus, if it means avoiding unnecessary conflict too, all the better.
Gemini: Would not think twice about lying.
Geminis are mischievous and love the attention from people. They have wild imaginations, so they can make stuff up on a whim, and people believe them! They’re so good at it that you end up not caring if it’s true or not.
Gemini, you are the zodiac sign most likely to lie because of your split personality. As the twins of the zodiac, you have two sides to your very complex personality. What people might not know about you is that this dual personality of yours is to blame.
You’re often known as being two-faced. You like to tell tall tales, white lies, and even damaging lies, all because it’s fun to you. Because you like being the center of attention, you’ll often tell stories that clearly aren’t true just to hold an audience. For fun or to hurt people, you like to lie.
Cancer: Too connected with their feelings to lie, but are not beyond manipulation.
Loyal and caring, Cancer will only lie to protect you, whether it’s from someone else or from your own feelings. For them, it’s more of a way to reassure you that everything is fine even though it isn’t, and it’s out of the goodness of their hearts.
Cancer, the only time you will lie is to spare people’s feelings, but you definitely don’t like doing it. You would much rather tell the truth to the people you care about, but with your big heart and tendency to smooth over the truth, it’s common for you to lie to make people feel better.
You are actually one of the few zodiac signs who lie with good intention and it actually works. Even if people find out that you told a lie to spare their feelings, they are much more like to appreciate your efforts over any other zodiac sign’s white lies.
Leo: The King of the Liars
You much prefer to be truthful over a liar, Leo, because it shows that you’re an adult and that you have class. Lying is just tacky, and you don’t want to get the reputation of someone who can’t be trusted to tell the truth.
You are honest to others because that is how you want to be treated. You believe that if you tell others the truth when they ask for it that they will return the favor to you. Honesty is very important to you, after all.
Like Geminis, Leos love the attention from people around them. So when they tell you a story, it may start off as truth, but a very exaggerated truth. The more amazed their audience is, the more exaggerated their stories will become.
Virgo: Lies to make himself feel better.
As much as possible, analytical Virgo doesn’t lie. Like Aries, they find it too bothersome and they’d rather focus on the situation at hand. However, the exception is if the truth stands in the way of resolving a situation. But even then, they’re considering all the pros and cons, and whether it’s really worth it.
You really do care about the people in your life, Virgo, and you would do just about anything to let them know that. That’s why you prefer to be honest over lying. You are much more concerned with other things in life to have to worry about keeping your lies straight, too.
You are honest because it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings. You like being known as someone that people can trust, and if you lie all the time, no one is going to want to trust you with anything, right? That’s why it’s just better to tell it like it is, even when it’s hard.
Libra: Lies like politician.
Libras are the diplomats of the zodiac, so in the name of what they believe is best for everyone, lying is a necessity. Unlike Geminis and Leos, their lies are somewhat believable; people don’t even realize that they’re lying until it’s too late.
You are a very charming zodiac sign, Libra, but you’re also very deceptive. The reason you lie so much is because you want people to like you. And rather than just being honest with who you are, you’d rather pretend to be someone you think people will want to know, even if it’s not the real you.
You are also not a huge fan of getting into trouble or facing the consequences of your mistakes. You’d much rather lie and get out of trouble – and also blame someone else – than own up to who you really are.
Scorpio: Focused on finding truth.
Suspicious and sometimes manipulative, lying is a game that Scorpios know all too well. This is because of their observant nature, which allows them to analyze every angle of a situation and come up with the best lie to go with it.
You are honest through and through, Scorpio. While you may not always share things about yourself if they feel too personal, you still don’t resort to lying to people.
You are honest because you deserve that honesty just as much as everyone else in your life does. Lying comes with so many negative feelings that it’s better to just tell it like it is. Otherwise, it eats you up inside and that’s not fun for anyone.
Sagittarius: Lying is not in their nature.
The friendly and outgoing Sagittarius doesn’t lie. They value their friendships and the people around them too much to ever lie. But if they have to lie out of necessity, they don’ play around and it will be the biggest lie known to man, usually for a worthy cost.
As someone who is always seeking the truth of the world, Sagittarius, you make it your goal in life to be as honest as possible to the people you care about. You see the value in seeing the facts, and if that means telling it like it is, so be it.
You can actually be brutally honest if you’re not careful. Tact isn’t exactly your forte, so it’s easy for you to cross the line into offensive honesty, even if you don’t mean it that way. Really, you just want to keep it real and let people know you can be trustworthy.
Capricorn: Lies because they aren’t in touch with themselves.
Out of all the signs, Capricorns hate lying. They won’t do it and they refuse to do it. Because of their distrustful nature, it’s no wonder they’re against lying of any form. But if they do lie, it’s not hidden for very long. They’ll feel too guilty and end up telling the truth anyway.
Letting people into your life can be pretty uncomfortable for you. You would much rather no one know anything about you until you decide that you’re ready to open up to them.
You don’t like to lie – you’d much rather tell the truth – but you will lie if people are trying to get too personal with you. You have a knack for keeping most things to yourself but telling people just enough to make them think they know everything about you. Sneaky.
Aquarius: Not a liar in any sense of the word.
Like Geminis, Aquarians are creative and witty storytellers. Their lies may be too good to be true, but they deliver it so flawlessly that people end up believing them.
You are one of those zodiac signs who says they don’t like to lie, but still finds themselves lying a lot more than you’d like to, Aquarius. While you like to think you’re truthful and honest, that’s not always who you really are.
You will lie for the greater good or when you feel like you’re doing it to help others. But while you have good intentions, you’re still choosing to lie instead of being honest. I know, it makes you look good to tell people what they want to hear, but is it really who you want to be?
Pisces: Lies to keep people at a distance.
The most sensitive of the signs, Pisces don’t lie. But when they do, it’s only for a good cause. It’s either to protect you from being hurt or to protect themselves. Either way, they’re so sensitive that people can’t even be angry at them when their lie is found out.
One of the main reasons you lie, Pisces, is because you want to be liked by people. You will say and do anything if it means one more person sees you in an admiring light. Sometimes, the lying you do is totally subconscious – it’s just habit!
You’re not always a liar, but you will lie if it puts you in a better light. What can you say? You really just want to be liked by all! In your eyes, the lies you tell are all with good intention, even if you’re still very much lying to others.
