The Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most to Least Honest

Whether we like it or not, all of us lie from time to time. Among the astrological signs, some use lies to avoid hurting others, to enhance their self-esteem or to protect their intimacy. Whereas others prefer to play the honesty card, even if it means being hurtful. While we typically consider dishonesty to be a bad thing, there are many situations where lying is arguably the better option. We've ranked each zodiac sign by their level of honesty, so where do you end up on our ranking?

Being honest and telling the truth are not innate qualities in everyone and certain folks immediately spark our suspicion whenever they open their mouths. Some people will be far too sincere, while others will find a balance between being honest and telling the truth without hurting the other person's feelings. And then there are those for whom lying is a solution to be foreseen at times, or always ... We reveal the 6 biggest liars of the zodiac.

Ranking from the most to the least honest signs...

Sometimes we are suspicious of what some people around us say without really understanding why. Something makes us doubt their sincerity. Is it they way they sensationally describe things, or even their shifty gestures that set off alarm bells in our heads? The fact is that we are not always wrong to have our doubts. Take a look at our ranking and find out whom you can, and can't trust...

1) Sagittarius

Sagittarius is the most honest zodiac sign

When presented with the opportunity to lie, being untruthful is a thought that doesn’t even pass a Sagittarius’ mind. While they’re known to be one of the funniest zodiac signs, they also happen to be surprisingly perceptive. A Sagittarius knows when they’re being lied to and detest the feeling, so they do all they can to stay truthful

2) Aries

Aries is always directly honest

While their impulsive natures mean they sometimes have no filter when they speak, their honesty can be refreshing and even admirable. An Aries is the one person you can count on to directly confront a person who is lying or exaggerating, so their direct honesty can often make them unnecessary enemies.

3) Leo

Leo is an open book

As Leos are known to be dramatic individuals, you might expect them to lie a bit through exaggeration. However, you’ll find that Leo’s are so self-confident and assured that they have no need to lie. They believe that people will like them for who they are, which is rather true, and see lying as an unnecessary solution to an issue in their life. They prefer to be completely open about the issue, at times sharing a bit too much on the subject.

4) Taurus

Taurus is usually trustworthy

With their traditionalist and rational attitude towards life, Taurus are generally individuals that abstain from lying were possible. They know that lying is a slippery road full of complications, an idea which makes them feel uncomfortable, and therefore they stay away from it. Taurus can be pretty uncompromising when they make their mind up, and the same goes for lying. That is, unless they turn green with envy about something and squeeze out a little lie.

5) Virgo

Virgo is calculatedly honest

This zodiac is right in the middle when it comes to lying, as there are times when they feel lying is the better option. Celebrated for their high levels of perception and analysis, Virgos are quick at reading people and assessing how a harsh truth may affect them. In situations like these, they are likely to drop a little white lie which will never be found out and harms no one. However, this doesn’t mean they are afraid to tell the truth when need be, they are perhaps the most critical zodiac of them all!

6) Aquarius

Aquarius is stoically truthful

Aquarius are known as people often lacking in emotional zodiac sign sensitivity, and it is this aspect which prevents them from being frequent liars. Their aversion to emotional exploration and expression prevents feelings, as it often does, from fueling lies. While they may occasionally lie as a defense mechanism, continual lying is not their thing. As an air sign, Aquarius values morals such as integrity and honesty in friends and partners, and they therefore hold themselves to the same standard.

7) Capricorn

Capricorn is a sporadic liar

Just like the other earth signs, Capricorn is not a zodiac that likes to lie frequently. As a sign representative of self-control and discipline, the individuals born under it often see lying as an unnecessary action leading to issues in the future. They acknowledge the possible implications resulting from one small white lie and usually choose against it. If they do end up lying, however, it's often a big lie that will be held close to their chest.

8) Cancer

Cancer lies to protect people

As highly emotional and imaginative individuals, Cancers are adept at lying when they feel like it’s necessary. Belonging to the water element, Cancers are highly empathetic and therefore understand the pain of those around them. Urged by emotion rather than reason often, this zodiac is happy to lie as long it keeps everyone happy. While this form of lying is well-intentioned, it often has negative consequences as they often cover up harsh truths which need to be heard to move forward.

9) Scorpio

Scorpio is a vengeful liar

As such a mysterious zodiac, it’s sometimes hard to know what’s fact or fiction with Scorpios. On one hand, they are very secretive people who value loyalty and honesty and will only open if they see these qualities in a person. On the other hand, as an emotional water sign, they’re prone to bouts of jealousy and suspicion which usually leads to lying. It’s ironic, but they aren’t afraid to lie to find the truth.

10) Pisces

Pisces is a compulsive liar

While the intention is never malicious, Pisces are experts when it comes to lying. As individuals so emotionally in touch with those surrounding them, they intuitively know what others want to hear to feel better. While this may be compassionate in some cases, they’re really lying for their own sake as they can’t stand watching others suffer. While they hate being criticized, lying for the good of others is almost second nature to them and can happen unconsciously.

11) Libra

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

A Libra’s reasoning behind lying is similar to that of Pisces, they can’t just passively watch injustice occur. As individuals naturally attracted to symmetry and balance, Libras dream of a world filled with harmony and equality. They will do everything in their power to avoid any kind of conflict, and lying is just one of the tools in their toolbox. Even though they most likely don’t have a definite stance on the issue, they will happily lie to both parties if it means resolving a hostile situation.

12) Gemini

Gemini is the biggest liar

You never know what you’re going to get from a Gemini. As individuals who are so expressive, quick-witted and adaptable, they are great at meeting and befriending new people. However, their ability to find something in common with everyone comes from the fact that they are notorious liars. Their fear of being alone conditions them to believe that making as many friends as possible is of utmost importance. Ultimately, it’s a Gemini’s fear of solitude that makes them the least honest zodiac.

Every single sag I've dealt with lied through their teeth. They may be blunt and tactless when they talk but that does not make them honest

I find Virgos to be the least honest.

I feel like Aries isn't always honest, please do not take any offense if you are an Aries. I've met many Aries people who I have been backstabbed by multiple times because they were never honest with me.

Im a Gemeni, I feel guilty when i lie sometimes but most of the times i do it a lot and im good at it.

Im Sag and i mostly lie when i dont want to lie, when i want to lie i somehow tell the truth. what da heck?

im a sag and im the same exact way.
