The Absolute Biggest Lie You Tell Yourself
Zodiac, Self

Everybody lies.

You may try to be completely honest, but you probably still lie on occasion. But even if you know how to tell if someone is lying, you're still guilty of the same thing. You can’t help by lie sometimes, especially if you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or you don’t want a lot of drama about something. 

There are those who are very comfortable with lying, and it can be easy to spot them using astrology or the horoscope for their zodiac sign. Lies roll off their tongue so convincingly that they start to believe their own lie.

Lying is often used to manipulate others and get them to do something you want them to do. No one likes being lied to, and there are times when the uncovered lies ruin everything — relationships end, business deals fall through, and everything that was built on a lie comes crashing down.

Lies can get out of hand. It's no wonder the zodiac signs each have a particular lie they use to deflect their own insecurities.

ARIES: "I researched it thoroughly and gave it a lot of thought before I did it."

Aries are known for being risky, fool-hardy, impulsive and reckless. If they get it in their mind to do something, they tend to act first and think about it later. Research and thoroughly vetting something would take too much time and might take some of the fun out of it.

TAURUS: "If you want to date other people, that's fine by me."

LEO: "What you see is what you get with me."

VIRGO: "I didn't study at all. I'm going to fail that test."

LIBRA: "You were great."

Libras are the diplomats of the Zodiac, and they'd much rather tell a small lie than hurt someone's feelings. They're always going to tell you that you were fantastic, even if you weren't. It's very difficult for them to give you constructive criticism unless you promise them that you can handle it.

SCORPIO: "No problem. I forgive you."

Scorpios really don't like being lied to, so if they catch you in a lie, it's a huge deal and it's going to take a lot for them to forgive you. They're not the kind of people who just let things slide. If you piss them off, they're either going to come for you, or you better show them how sorry you really are.

PISCES: "I heard every word you said."

Pisces people love to spend time in their fantasy world and don't always have the largest attention spans. They drift off and go to their creative place.
