5 Zodiac Signs Who Will Use Your Secrets Against You.

What kind of person would use someone’s secrets against them? They might be in desperate circumstances and using this kind of information could be their only option. But it’s more likely that they’re narcissistic, manipulative, lacking in empathy, jealous, resentful, and/or self-absorbed.

When we use astrology as a guide and pay attention to the designated personality traits, the 

malicious zodiac signs are the ones who use your secrets against you than others. Spilling secrets can be a way to control you, use you, or may have little to do with you.

Secrets are valuable and can be used as currency for people to get what they want, no matter what the emotional cost may be. And there are individuals who believe that by sharing your secrets, they’re helping you in some way so you’ll be freer by not having it hanging over your head.

If someone uses your secrets as a weapon, it may result in the ending of your relationship. It can be too difficult to get past that kind of betrayal. 

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Competition is everything to an Aries, and they will try some dirty tricks if they're desperate to win. They have a tendency to blurt things out and, unfortunately, sometimes they're things you wanted to keep private.

Aries may not consider telling your secrets as that big of a deal; they're just doing it to have a competitive edge. They can't help it if they need to constantly prove how much better they are than everyone else.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Everybody knows about the relationship between passionate Scorpio and revenge. If they're trying to get back at someone who hurt them, they will use all the ammunition they have, and sometimes that ammo is secrets.

Of course, they would justify their actions. They wouldn't have to break someone's trust if they hadn't hurt Scorpio first.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus can be judgmental and will sometimes act on that judgment. They may take the information given to them in confidence and use it as a teaching tool.

They don't approve of something that you're doing, and the best way to get you to stop is to cause you to feel shame about it. Taurus should be reminded that they're not the judge and jury of anybody but themselves.

4. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is another sign who may believe that by using your secrets against you, they're helping you. But the truth is, they're usually helping themselves.

Leo may try to rationalize that what they're doing is for your own good, and that they aren't taking advantage of the situation for their own gain. That's just an unexpected side benefit. If an opportunity arises that can help them, why wouldn't they take it, even if it meant spilling the tea?

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is known for sometimes being careless with their words, and oftentimes don't consider all the consequences before doing or saying something. Once it hits them, they'll feel terrible once they've had a chance to let what they did sink in.

They're not malicious, just thoughtless and self-absorbed. It's not that they seek out secrets in order to destroy someone, it's that just don't think it all through.
