how to know if you can trust each zodiac sign

Trust may be a small word but its power is huge. For most people, trust is the primary ingredient of a successful relationship and we can’t move forward until we have it. You may even consult your horoscope to see if someone is worthy.

Trust is defined as a firm belief in the reliability or strength of someone or something. It’s the faith that someone will do what they say they will, that they won’t betray you, that they’re working with you not against you and, most importantly, that you can be honest with them and share your deepest secrets and that they won’t use any confidential information to harm you in any way.

It can take a long time to trust someone and even then you may not entirely trust them.

Trying to get someone to trust you? Watch the video below for how to win them over:

Can a relationship survive when trust is broken? Can you go back to how things were before your trust was damaged? Some people think it’s possible; others, not so much. We want to be able to trust our partners, our spouses, our family members, our religious leaders, and our doctors.

When you trust someone, you expose your vulnerability. There are trust-building exercises but sometimes you just have to build trust moment by moment, and even then that trust isn’t a sturdy as you thought it would be.

We look for signs that we haven’t put our trust in someone who is undeserving of it and we’re cautious about trusting those who our gut instincts tell us are not to be trusted. We listen to our inner voices and hope that they guide us in the right direction.
