Don’t Trust These 6 Zodiac Signs With Any Of Your Secrets

These signs have no respect for your private life,

zodiac signs who can't keep secrets weheartit

Here’s one of my favorite riddles: “What’s too much for one, just right for two, and nothing at all with three?” The answer, of course, is a secret. No, wait. I mean, the answer isn't secret. I’m telling the answer. “A secret” is the answer. (Whew, you have to be careful with language!)

Not everything in your life needs to go public; your horoscope is evident of that. Whether you’re sitting on some amazingly great news or a terrible burden, or even if you’ve just come across a particularly juicy bit of gossip about someone else, sometimes you just have to share it with someone before you burst.


You need to know who to trust. Nothing beats having a best friend who can keep her mouth shut, but what if you can’t talk to them about this for some reason? Choose your confidants carefully.

By the same token, when someone comes to you with secrets of their own, make sure you respect their privacy and their trust. There are two advantages to this. One: you don’t make any enemies. Two: you’ll get the reputation of a good listener who doesn't repeat sensitive information, which means that more people will come to you to vent, and you’ll get to hear even more secrets!


If you really want to see how well someone can keep a secret, you’ll need to take a look at their entire astrology chart: Where is Cancer (the most private of signs)? Which sign rules their eighth house (the segment associated with mysteries)? Is their natal Mercury (the planet of communication) stuck in some unfortunate aspects with their other planets? These details are just as important in an astrology chart as the location of the Sun.

This list is only based on the qualities of the zodiac signs, but it’s a good place to start. Here are the zodiac signs who can't keep secrets.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)



No getting around it — Aries can be a loudmouth with very little impulse control. They don’t always understand others’ emotional needs or vulnerabilities, and they don’t always care. Aries has very few secrets of their own, so they can’t imagine why anyone else would care so much about tip-toeing around a problem and keeping things quiet.

At best, Aries might think they’re doing you a favor by broadcasting your private issues so that you have to face your problems. At worst, they’d do it as a joke, just because they know it bothers you. Aries is one of the most confrontational signs and unless there’s something in their natal chart to soften this behavior, they can be rather thoughtless and mean.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



Everyone loves to talk to Gemini. They’re well spoken, great listeners, and experts at making others comfortable in their presence. No matter what you say to Gemini, they just seem to be able to instantly understand where you’re coming from.

The drawback, sometimes, is that they have the same effect on everyone they meet, because more than anything, Gemini wants to be liked. Geminis often have a tendency to gossip, and in their endless quest to fit in with every group, they’re liable to say just about anything — and that includes things that they may have promised to keep to themselves.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



Reserved and withdrawn, Virgo isn't likely to go blabbing your secrets to anyone else. But if you want a non-judgmental shoulder to cry on, go talk to Pisces. Virgo will listen patiently, analyze the information, and then, in great detail, list everything that you’re doing wrong in the situation.

Virgo genuinely wants to help solve the problem, even if you only wanted someone to vent to and never asked for help — heck, even if you’re sharing good news, Virgo will find something to critique. As an overly critical perfectionist, they won’t be able to resist telling you exactly where you screwed up and what needs to change.

The upside is that they’re usually right. The downside is that now you just feel worse than you did before you tried unloading on a Virgo.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio knows the value of a secret, but they can also be the most manipulative, calculating sign in the zodiac. Scorpio loves it when someone trusts them enough to be vulnerable and open up to them (don’t expect them to do the same, though; no one knows Scorpio’s real secrets).

If you share your private world with Scorpio, they may technically keep their promise to never tell another soul, but now they know a lot more about you, and that can be risky. Scorpios are likely to turn someone’s deepest secrets into blackmail material or use the information to control and manipulate them.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius doesn't mean to spill the beans. They just get so excited about things! Because of their innate honesty, and their distinct lack of subtlety and tact, Sagittarius is prone to blurting out whatever is on their mind, even if it’s that piece of sensitive information that they promised would never go beyond just you and them.


It’s not uncommon to see Sagittarius with their hand over their mouth after the fact, wearing the “whoops!” expression on their face.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)



You might be bearing your heart and soul to Aquarius, but are they even listening? This sign is easily distracted, and though they appear to be looking right at you and nodding their head at the appropriate times, you can bet they only heard half of what you just said. “Don’t tell anyone, but...” was probably not in that half.

Even if they did hear that part and promised to keep quiet, Aquarius has their own agenda. If sharing your secrets will help them achieve their goals, that’s justification enough for them. After all, you’ll get over it, right?
