No matter how good of a person someone might be, the fact remains the same: everyone lies. Every person has lied at least a few times in their lives, and there is no denying that or hiding from that. Sometimes how you tell a lie can depend on what your zodiac sign is. Yes, you heard it right! Your zodiac sign can play a major role in the way you lie.
Yes, honesty is the best policy, but is it really fair to expect people to always tell the truth? In certain situations, when telling the truth might end up aggravating the situation more, it’s lying that saves the day.
This might sound morally wrong, but it is what it is; telling lies is sometimes the best option in certain situations. So, how do you really tell a lie? Let’s find out how zodiac signs lie.
How You Tell A Lie Based On Your Zodiac Sign
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You lie with conviction.
When it comes to lying, Aries can be a pro at it. You will lie with such conviction and passion, that the other person ends up believing you very easily. You don’t decorate or exaggerate your lies much, and you keep your fibs short and to the point.
Arians will always give their all to prove that they are telling the truth so that no one can ever distrust them and their words.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You lie by believing your lie to be the absolute truth.
You focus on the lie so deeply, that you yourself start believing it to be the actual truth. You are so convincing to yourself and others, that for a moment you forget that you are lying.
You do this because deep down inside you know that if you don’t believe the truth enough, then it might give you away and chip away at your facade.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You lie convincingly on the spot.
As a Gemini, your imagination is your biggest asset, and you are always able to lie through your teeth, whenever the need arises.
You are so good at lying, that you can come up with amazing and convincing lies on the spot, without giving too much effort. Even when you don’t have a real reason to lie, you will still do so, just to keep everything interesting.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You lie by putting a lot of emotion into it.
When you lie, you always lie with a lot of emotion because you want to make sure that it looks and sounds authentic. The more emotion you put into it, the more believable your lie becomes.
Even if someone does not believe what you are saying, they will still feel uneasy to point it out or investigate it more. Bonus: why would someone even try to question you, when your eyes are full of tears and you are on the verge of breaking down?
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You lie by making a performance of it.
Leos are known to be flamboyant and limelight lovers, so naturally how you lie is also descriptive of that.
You will probably practice your lie over and over again, zero in on the right tone and attitude, and rehearse the whole thing until it’s absolutely perfect. You will not just lie, you will put up an exhilarating performance, and influence people to believe every word you say to them.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You lie by putting hundreds of details in it.
Before you lie to someone, you make sure that you plan it out properly and think of everything from every perspective, so that there is absolutely no room for error. You will analyze every little thing, and detail, and try to make sure that it’s the perfect lie.
Virgos are so logical and analytical, that there will be hardly any chance for their lies to fall flat on their face.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You lie by excluding details and go for half-hearted communication.
Libras don’t like to lie, so when they find themselves having to, they try to avoid it altogether. For them, the best way to lie is to steer clear of telling it at all! They would rather hide it because chances are people might forget about it after a few days.
You might also try to avoid it as much as you can by limiting contact and trying your level best to make sure that the topic never comes up at all.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You lie by passionately sticking to it.
When a Scorpio lies, they aggressively and passionately stand by that, no matter what. Even if nobody believes you, you will still stand by your lie and not budge even an inch from it.
There might be many loopholes in your lies, but your confidence and conviction will end up playing in your favor by making others feel unsure about their own viewpoints.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You lie by exaggerating it a lot.
You cook up a big and dramatic story when you lie so that people can be lost in the story and end up believing it in a second.
You want to make your lie as authentic and believable as you can, and you will present it in such a way, others would want you to keep on lying because they will love the story you will be feeding them.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You lie by presenting solid evidence.
Capricorns don’t just lie blindly; they will make sure that they have ample evidence to back every word they speak. They will gather enough proof so that no one can even find the slightest way to call their bluff.
You will manipulate people and situations in such a way, that even if your proof doesn’t match your words, you will make it look apt, and fitting.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You lie by bringing in more people into it.
You believe in the power of numbers, and you know very well that the best way to make a lie seem like the truth is by bringing in many people into it. The more people you have on your side, the harder it will be for others to prove that you are lying.
You make sure that you have a strong alibi and enough people on your side to back your lie.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You lie by deceiving people to believe your lies.
You are probably the most charismatic among all the zodiac signs. You know how to trick people into believing your words, by convincing them that you would never be dishonest with them in the first place.
Pisces manipulate people by telling them that they are too sweet to ever lie and that they love them a lot for them to ever deceive them. Smart, right?
