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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
