Let’s face it: people lie all the time. There are even names for the degrees of severity. There are white lies, fibs, fish stories, and whoppers. And, how about stretching the truth, pulling your leg, and pulling the wool over your eyes? Each of the signs has certain “sore spots” – things they’re more likely to stretch the truth about, either because they’re trying to protect themselves or they want to keep you from knowing the facts. And, there are certain behaviors that will give them away…
Aries: Your average Ram doesn’t lie much. It’s too time-consuming, and the reaction they’ll get when they have to answer truthfully is just too much drama for them to stir up. If you do call them out on a fib, though, don’t be scared – their defensive bark is worse than their caught-red-handed bite.
Taurus: This quality-conscious sign loves the good things in life, so they need to make money. Lots of money. So that’s their usual weak spot. If they say they don’t have cash on them or that they’re broke, don’t believe it. Neither is usually true.
Gemini: Here’s a truly tough sign to catch in a lie. They’re natural storytellers, so they’re good liars. To make things worse – or better – they’re so chatty and personable that you’ll be entertained by the stories they tell you, and you won’t care if they’re based on fact or fiction.
Cancer: These home-oriented types are the nurturers of the Zodiac, so when they lie to you, they’ll be stroking your hair and telling you that everything will be just fine, and that you shouldn’t worry. If you’re still concerned, though, trust your intuition, and prepare yourself for an unpleasant truth.
Leo: Leos are notoriously good at this “sport” – mostly because they think of deception as a form of entertainment. When they tell you a story, if you applaud, they’ll keep going – which is how you’ll trap them. Be gentle. After all, it’s better than television.
Virgo: Here’s another sign that hates to lie – unless the truth will interfere with the successful completion of an assigned task. In that case, given the efficiency factor, they’ll estimate that the fallout from being found out will be less harmful than the effect of the truth.
Libra: Librans have been called “Smiling Scorpios.” A famous astrologer good-naturedly gave them this moniker because of the smooth and polished way they’ll pull the wool over your eyes without you ever suspecting a thing. Relationships, however, will be their favorite topic to twist.
Scorpio: Don’t bother to check their story. They’ll anticipate it and have their tracks covered before they ever open their mouth. Favorite topics include sex, sex, and sex – oh, and sex. It only makes sense. Scorpios are known for their sensual personalities.
Sagittarius: Most Sags don’t lie. Their sign is famous for being brutally honest. If they’re going to lie, however, they won’t mess around. Sag also rules excess. Big, better, more, much. So if they’re going to lie, it’s going to be a huge lie, with far less of the 85% truth most lies contain.
Capricorn: If a Capricorn is lying to you, it’s going to bother them. They detest dishonesty, mostly because it throws them off the track and wastes time, and this sign likes to take care of business quickly and efficiently. If they look guilty, fold your arms and stare at them. They’ll buckle quickly.
Aquarius: Aquarians are geniuses. It’s just part of the package. They arrive on the planet with a propensity toward odd-colored hair and the ability to see into the future. Consequently, their stories will be equally inventive and their techniques of delivery flawless.
Pisces: These sensitive types will usually only lie if they’re trying to hide something from you “for your own good.” They’re masters at evading reality, however, so you may never see through them – and even if you do, you’ll probably opt to ignore the facts just to keep their feelings safe.
