The Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most to Least Honest

Whether we like it or not, all of us lie from time to time. Everyone has their different reasons for lying; some do it protect themselves, some do it to protect others and some lie out of habit. While we typically consider a lie 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. Where does your zodiac end up on our honesty ranking?

Regardless of how you perceive lies, it’s hard to argue that they have the possibility to be powerful. A lie has the capability to both ruin and to positively influence lives, depending on the lies’ intention and situation. Lying, however, can be a slippery slope leading to more and more lies until people get caught in a web of their own lies, hoping nobody finds out. Which zodiac is the most honest? And which zodiac is the biggest liar? We reveal the 6 biggest liars of the zodiac and why they lie.

Ranking: The Most Honest Zodiac Signs

On the flipside of the coin, it’s hard to dispute that honesty is the best policy. While the truth can definitely hurt, at least the issue has been confronted. Some zodiac signs, as a result of the sign’s traits and values, intuitively lean towards being honest and truthful whilst others find it harder not to lie. Do you think that you're someone that lies a lot or are you a pretty straight-forward person? Each zodiac sign lies in a unique way - some may not even realise they're lying! Take a look at our rankings and find out whether your zodiac sign is the biggest liar.

Truth Personified

1. Sagittarius

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 the most optimist and 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. A common criticism of the zodiac is that they’re actually too honest and direct but at least you know they’re never being fake with you.

Directly Honest

2. Aries

Perhaps even more direct in action than Sagittarius, Aries is another sign which seldom lies. 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.

Open Book

3. Leo

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.

Usually Trustworthy

4. Taurus

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.

Calculatedly Honest

5. Virgo

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!

Stoically Truthful

6. Aquarius

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.

Sporadic Liar

7. Capricorn

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.

Considerate Deceiver

8. Cancer

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.

Vengeful Liar

9. Scorpio

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.

Compulsive Liar

10. Pisces

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

11. Libra

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

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.

Scorpio aren't liar and one the most honest sign we consider deceptive people to be coward

Gemini’s are NOT that much of liars. I really do agree with anyone who says that this website stereotyped Gemini’s. Somethings you got right,(basically one thing) but, every thing else, you got wrong. Please put us somewhere else on the list

I agree with you Connie they also stereotyped Gemini I honestly wish people would learn to be more open and try to understand that other views instead of cutting off what they don’t understand honestly stereotyping zodiacs and hating them because of the time they were born is like hating someone based on their skin colour.
