Two-faced people seem like they’re extremely nice and have a great personality, but there’s a side to them that talks smack about people behind their backs, has a mean bone in their body, and have no problem lying.

The two-faced zodiac signs have trouble keeping it real. Thanks to astrology and horoscopes, we can get an in-depth look at someone's personality traits like this, including the signs who are fake about who they truly are.

No one wants to be thought of as a two-faced snake, so there are some things to look out for. If you catch yourself doing any one of these things, it’s time decide if being thought of as manipulative and fake is the image you want of yourself.

If you're two-faced and fake, there are some things you do that set you apart from the people who are genuine:

  1. They invite people out for a drink or coffee without having any intention of following through.
  2. They’ll spend time with people as long as everything is kept light and easy.
  3. They compliment people all the time but don’t really believe what they’re saying.
  4. They claim that they’re laid back and never get angry, but underneath that friendly expression on their face, they're seething.
  5. They will change sides in an argument to side with whoever is winning.
  6. They have no problem throwing you under the bus if it saves them in some way.
  7. When they have witnesses, they act humble and self-effacing, but when they’re by themselves or with someone they don’t have to worry about impressing, they show their true nature.
  8. When they’re alone with another person, they love to show off and boast about their achievements and the things they have.
  9. If it’s just you and a two-faced person, they’ll take the opportunity to insult you and make you feel less than.

Ultimately, being two-faced isn’t a very nice way to be. But for these two-faced zodiac signs, it's just a reality.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Because Gemini is the sign of the twins, they're thought of as being two-faced. Of course, not every Gemini is two-faced, but the ones that are use their great communication skills in toxic ways such as spreading rumors (and sometimes lies) about people, talking smack about their friends but denying it when confronted, and telling stories about themselves that they use to gain sympathy and trust from others.

The sad thing is Gemini may not even be aware that they're being two-faced.

2. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras have a problem with secrets — they just can't keep their mouths shut. When you tell a Libra a juicy secret, they'll be dying to share it with someone else. They may promise that they'll never tell, but knowing they have a secret will eat away at them until they can't take it anymore.

Libra will feel terrible about breaking your trust and will promise that they'll be better, but that's no guarantee they'll keep a secret the next time.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces just want to keep everybody happy and if that means they have to be fake, they're going to be fake. They're aware when they're not being honest and upfront, but if it keeps the peace, Pisces is okay with it.

If pretending helps them avoid being criticized or not being put on blast, their plan of action is to be a huge phony. Pisces will do a lot of things so they won't get hurt, and being two-faced is as good a plan as any.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius also don't want to get into a tense situation. They like things to be light and amusing because they're people-pleasers at heart. They often give compliments — even if they don't mean them — so that people will like them, and they also like to brag about their achievements and how great they are.

However, when Sagittarius is bragging, they don't see themselves as being two-faced, just telling it like it is.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios don't like to lie; however, they're very good at manipulating other people which makes them two-faced. They know how to use other people's heads and hearts to their own advantage. Scorpios tend to look at the big picture and have big plans.

If using someone will help them to achieve their goals, Scorpio is going to do it. They also can get jealous, so if someone else's happiness reminds Scorpio of what they don't have, they may say they're happy for that person, but they don't act as if they are.
